Ricardo Antela, the legal counsel of private news TV channel Globovisión, affirmed that the break in the obligatory simultaneous broadcast on Thursday during a ministerial council led by President Hugo Chávez, was out of human error by the master operator.

Antela pointed out that its client forwarded a letter to the director of the Venezuelan National Telecommunications Commission (Conatel), Pedro Maldonado, and set up a telephone contact to explain that around 4:28 pm, the TV channel representatives noticed that the transmission would stop for about three seconds.

The glitch occurred, according to the attorney, while recording the program "Con todo y Penzini." In the meantime, one of the films of the Harry Potter saga popped up.

Furthermore, he vowed to investigate the event to elucidate whether the operator acted knowingly. Despite a "spontaneous event," he added, it was "gross error."

Living with HIV/AIDS (II)

At first she agreed that I use her real name, that she had no problems with that at all. After all, living with HIV had driven her to help others – as a workshop facilitator giving talks and conducting seminars, or as a volunteer for local AIDS Service Organizations like Acción Solidaria (Solidary Action) and Mujeres Unidas por la Salud (Women United for Health, or Musa), a support group network for HIV-positive women. But when we were well into the interview, the realization that she might lose her private health insurance coverage made her change her mind.
