By Buenos Aires Times

Greetings dear reader and welcome to the first edition of the Buenos Aires Times, a new weekly 16-page publication that you  will find inside your copy of Perfil, every Saturday. In lieu of a first editorial speaking as the voice of this new, fledgling  newspaper (it seems a little early to start giving our opinion), I thought it better to write to you, the reader, directly. 

The practice  of journalism, of reporting the news, has changed drastically in recent years, both in terms of how it is carried out and how the news finds it way to a reader. The situation is common knowledge: print outlets are gradually disappearing from the landscape  and most media groups are searching for business models that work in the 24/7 digital environment.

But the Herald, the capital’s English-language newspaper, could not survive... (Read More)

Es más difícil llegar al punto más bajo que al más alto. El Aconcagua es la cima de Mendoza, y en el límite tripartito con San Luis y La Pampa está el más bajo.

Sí, lo sabemos prácticamente desde la cuna. Alzamos la vista y sabemos que uno de esos picos es el más alto de Mendoza, de Argentina, de América. Sobre el Aconcagua nadie duda. Pero, ¿cuál es el más bajo? Traducido al mendocino básico, ¿cuál es el más pandito?

Los encargados de la página de Facebook Geografía y Geología de Mendoza, Guillermo Corona y Pablo González, también se lo preguntaron y lo respondieron.

"Mucho menos llamativo que su opuesto –en referencia al Aconcagua– es el punto más bajo de Mendoza. Se ubica sobre el río... (Read More)
