El Gobierno ultima el permiso para convertir antiguas instalaciones en alojamientos

Faro de la Isla Ancha, en Ribadeo (Lugo) / Albrecht Weißer (GmbH)

Que las declaraciones de un reservista voluntario en un medio de comunicación lleven a la petición de su cese como funcionario en el pleno de un ayuntamiento es algo llamativo.

"My kids are losing hope," said Wilbert Collins, 77, a retired third-generation oysterman in southeastern Louisiana with four sons who followed him into the industry. The family business has endured a 60 percent drop in yields in the past five years.

The explosion and collapse of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig on April 20, 2010, left 11 workers dead and huge stretches of the Gulf fouled with oil that gushed from the site for 87 days.
