Current situation in Cuba prevents women from wearing false nails

Economy in Cuba

Currently, Cuba is going through one of the strongest economic crises that has brought the shortage of various items such as fuel and food. Likewise, the current situation in Cuba has caused the disappearance of products to fix false nails, preventing Cubans from wearing them.

Undoubtedly, the disappearance of these materials is not the most serious problem in the current situation in the country, however it affects many Cubans. It is no secret to anyone that the islanders are very flirtatious and are always looking to look gorgeous, and one way is to wear false nails.

The trend of wearing false nails does not exist only in Cuba, but in much of the world, so there are various techniques for its installation. In addition, these techniques vary according to the type of material used, which also varies the cost of its installation.

In most cases, women prefer that their nails be made in gel because, although they are more expensive, they look better. However, in Cuba the reality is different since the West Indies prefer to wear acrylic false nails, which are more resistant to daily tasks.

As a result of the difficult situation in Cuba, obtaining acrylic for the preparation of these nails has become quite complicated. Therefore, the few people who sell these types of implements have raised their rates exponentially.

As a result, self-employed people dedicated to providing this type of services have been prevented from working and bringing their livelihoods to their homes. This, without a doubt, is part of the most serious problem of this situation because the hard thing that these workers face right now.

According to the opinion of some stylists who work in the arrangement of false nails in Cuba, providing the usual good service is almost impossible. Undoubtedly, West Indian women are very used to using their acrylic nails because, apart from being durable, they are cheaper.

However, when this material is not scarce, suppliers sell it up to three times its price, forcing self-employed workers to raise their rates. As a result, many clients have chosen to stop getting their nails done as they are unable to pay 8 CUC for the service or 4 CUC for the touch-up.

The situation is even more complicated for stylists after the coronavirus appeared , since for a long time they were unable to work. However, after the resumption of activities in the country, the clientele continues to be low as a result of the high service rates.

Also, other specialists in the arrangement of false nails in Cuba have chosen to work with gel because it is a material that is not in short supply. However, implementation is equally expensive and the service fee could be as high as $ 10; a very high price.

Russia is confident in its defense if US leaves Start-3 Treaty

Moscow,(Plenglish) Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Friday that Russia will guarantee its security, even if the United States rules out a possible renovation of the Start-3 Treaty on nuclear weapons.

‘We are absolutely certain that we will guarantee our security, even without the treaty,’ the Russian foreign minister said in a videoconference on the treaty, which will expire in February 2021.

The Start-3 Treaty is the only agreement that links the United States and Russia since August 2, 2019, when Washington withdrew from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), signed in 2010.

In late June, Russia and the United States met in Vienna to discuss the possibilities of extending the Start-3 Treaty, signed ten years ago, for at least five years, in order to limit the two powers’ arsenals.

According to Sputnik news agency, Lavrov underlined that Russia is prepared for any scenario due to the possible US withdrawal from the treaty.

However, he repeated that his country ‘will continue to bet on dialogue with the United States on the strategic problem and the new instruments to control weapons in the context of the factors that impact strategic stability’.

The head of Russian diplomacy called people’s attention on the importance of extending the agreement, which it would be necessary for both Moscow and Washington.

Lavrov pointed out that the risk in nuclear matters have increased significantly in recent times. ‘The situation in matters of international security and strategic stability is deteriorating,’ he pointed out.

U.S. cities approve anti-blockade initiatives

HAVANA, Cuba, July 10 (ACN) Cuban ambassador to the United States, Jose Ramon Cabañas, said on Thursday on Twitter that there are now 13 city councils in the northern country that are calling for the end of the blockade imposed against Cuba.

Cleveland City Councilman Blaine Griffin was the main sponsor of the resolution calling for the end of the U.S. blockade against Cuba; the diplomat tweeted, regarding the most recent proposal against that hostile measure.

Cabañas pointed out that, beside the statement approved in Cleveland, similar initiatives have been carried out by Brookline, Detroit, Hartford, Helena, Minneapolis, Oakland, Pittsburgh, Sacramento, Seattle, St Paul, Berkeley and Richmond.
For his part, Blaine Griffin said in a press release that he is pleased to announce that the Cleveland City Council approved and Mayor Frank G. Jackson signed into law a resolution calling for an end to the 60-year-old economic, commercial and financial blockade against the Republic of Cuba and urging the Trump administration to renew negotiations with the Cuban government and build an ongoing cooperative relationship between the United States and Cuba.

The Resolution was unanimously approved; pointing out that the blockade has had a devastating impact on human rights in Cuba.

The resolution added that the blockade has also denied U.S. farmers, livestock breeders and other producers access to a vital consumer market just 90 miles from our southern border.

The blockade denies Americans access to life-saving medicines and therapies. Cuba is a world leader in the development of drugs and therapies for cancer, diabetes complications and, most recently, for COVID-19, he emphasized

Once this is gone, the United States and Cuba can build a partnership based on respect, trust and mutual understanding, a partnership between the proud people of Cuba and the United States, Griffin concluded.

Trump says Joe Biden is a ‘puppet’ of AOC and Bernie Sanders

President Trump said Friday that Joe Biden is “a puppet” of New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and would leave people “at the mercy of a socialist mob.”

Trump told Cuban and Venezuelan exiles in Florida that Biden’s alliance with the self-described socialists is frightening.

“Joe Biden and the radical left are trying to impose the same system — socialism plus — in America. Biden is a puppet of Bernie Sanders, AOC and the militant left,” Trump said.

“Nobody will be safe in a Biden America, but Biden doesn’t know what a Biden America is if you ask him to define it — he wouldn’t even know what it is, but other people do. And he will have radical people running that.”

Sanders (I-Vt.) and Biden issued a joint policy agenda Wednesday. The left-wing senator defeated Biden in Democrats’ first three presidential contests this year and his enthusiastic base is essential for Biden in November.

Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is co-chairing a Biden campaign climate change task force.

Trump often describes Biden, 77, as senile and says “other people” will run the country if he’s elected. In Florida, Trump added a jab at Biden’s remark this week endorsing redirecting police funds following the killing of George Floyd in Minnesota.

“Biden wants to defund the police,” Trump said. “He wants to call the cops the enemy, which he did the other day, leaving every citizen at the mercy of a socialist mob, or a mob far worse than socialism was ever meant to be.”

Trump slammed the Obama administration’s policies in Latin America, including steps toward lifting the longstanding Cuban embargo. By contrast, Trump said, he sanctioned Venezuela’s socialist government and recognized Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido as the country’s interim president.

“Biden pledged to reinstate the pro-Communist policies of the Obama-Biden administration. They were pro-Communist policies. The deal he made with Cuba is ridiculous,” Trump said.
