A native of Bolívar State (Bolívar State (Venezuela)), Venezuela, the well-traveled Manrique was a solid second baseman with a good range and a strong throwing arm that allowed him to play deep and steal hits (Hit (baseball)).

Alexander von Humboldt was the first to propose an inorganic abiogenic hypothesis for petroleum formation after he observed petroleum springs in the Bay of Cumaux (Cumaná) on the northeast coast of Venezuela. Sadtler, The Genesis and Chemical Relations of Petroleum and Natural Gas, 1897 In 1804 he is quoted as saying, "petroleum is the product of a distillation from great depth and issues from the primitive rocks beneath which the forces of all volcanic action lie." Abraham Gottlob Werner and the proponents of neptunism in the 18th century believed basaltic sills (Sill (geology)) to be solidified oils or bitumen. While these notions have been proven unfounded, the basic idea that petroleum is associated with magmatism persisted. Other prominent proponents of what would become the abiogenic hypothesis included Mendeleev Mendeleev, D., 1877. L'origine du petrole.

Santa Cruz scored a hat trick against Colombia (Colombia national football team) in a 5–0 Paraguayan victory during the Copa América 2007 in Venezuela.

In 1841 he returned to Guiana, this time as a British Government (Her Majesty's Government) official to survey the colony and fix its eastern and western boundaries. The result was the provisional boundary between British Guiana and Venezuela known as the "Schomburgk Line", and the boundary with the Dutch (Netherlands) colony of Surinam (Suriname). He also made further geographical and ethnological observations, and was joined there by his brother, Moritz Richard (Moritz Richard Schomburgk). He repeatedly urged fixing the boundary with Brazil, motivated by his encounters with Brazilian enslavement (Slavery) of local Indian tribes, most of which no longer exist. Schomburgk's survey later played a role in the arbitration of the southern boundary between British Guiana and Brazil, with arbitration by the King of Italy in 1904. *Boxing: **Venezuelan boxer Juan Jose Landaeta officially files a protest at the WBA (World Boxing Association)'s Caracas (Caracas, Venezuela) offices, for the result of his fight the previous week against WBA world minimumweight champion, Yutaka Niida, where Landaeta lost a split decision in Japan.

He is currently a Senior Associate in the International Economics program at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Naím served as Venezuela’s Minister of Trade and Industry, and played a central role in the initial launching of major economic reforms in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Prior to his ministerial position, he was professor and dean at Instituto de Estudios Superiores de Administración (IESA), a business school and research center in Caracas. He was also the director of the projects on economic reforms and on Latin America at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Naím was also associated with the World Bank, where he served as an Executive Director. From 1996 to 2010, Naím was the editor-in-chief of ''Foreign Policy'' magazine. Under his leadership, the magazine re-launched, won the National Magazine award for General Excellence three times, and became one of the world's most influential publications in international affairs.

This is true for its massif as a whole, but the main summit is wholly in Brazil. It is also sometimes mentioned as being the highest point in South America outside of the Andes, but this is not correct either: the title belongs to Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia, which is almost twice the height of Pico da Neblina and completely detached from the Andes. However, Pico da Neblina is indeed the highest point '''east''' of the Andes range, and therefore of a large portion of the continent. Neighbouring Pico 31 de Março, which ''is'' on the precise international border, is also the highest point in Venezuela outside of the Andes. The ''' Little Hermit''' (''Phaethornis longuemareus'') is a hummingbird that is a resident breeder in north-eastern Venezuela, northern Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana and Trinidad. This lowland species occurs in various semi-open wooded habitats, e.g. mangrove, secondary forest, plantations and scrub (Scrubland). In Trinidad it also occurs in rainforest. It is fairly common in most of its range, and therefore listed as Least Concern by BirdLife International. In 2002, Barros moved to Venezuela to act there, after being signed by Venevision.

The authorities' failure to apprehend Androutsopoulos for seven years raised criticisms by the Greek media. A ''Ta Nea'' article claimed that Periandros remained in Greece and evaded arrest due to connections with the police. In a 2004 interview, Michalis Chrisochoidis, the former minister of public order of PASOK (Panhellenic Socialist Movement), claimed that such accusations were unfounded, and he blamed the inefficiency of the Greek police. Some allege that Androutsopoulos had evaded arrest because he had been residing in Venezuela until he turned himself in 2005.

Alarcón starred alongside Camille Carrion in the international hit ''Vivir Para Ti'', which is generally considered by Puerto Rican television critics to be one of the best soap operas ever made in the country. WAPA-TV sold the soap opera to stations in Venezuela, Mexico, Colombia, Chile and other important Latin American markets where Alarcón was not well known before. In addition, since WAPA-TV's transmissions reached the United States Virgin Islands as well, viewers in those islands were able to know Alarcón as well.

'''Venezuela''' ( with an estimated population around 29,100,000. Venezuela is considered a state with extremely high biodiversity (Megadiverse countries), with habitats ranging from the Andes Mountains in the west to the Amazon Basin rainforest in the south, via extensive ''llanos (Los Llanos, Venezuela)'' plains and Caribbean coast in the center and the Orinoco River Delta (Orinoco Delta) in the east.
The territory currently known as Venezuela was colonized by Spain (Spanish colonization of the Americas) in 1522 amid resistance from indigenous peoples (Indigenous peoples in Venezuela). In 1811, it became one of the first Spanish-American colonies to declare independence (First Republic of Venezuela), which was not securely established until 1821, when Venezuela was a department of the federal republic of Gran Colombia. It gained full independence as a separate country in 1830. During the 19th century, Venezuela suffered political turmoil and autocracy, remaining dominated by regional ''caudillos'' (military strongmen) until the mid-20th century. Since 1958, the country has had a series of democratic governments. Economic shocks in the 1980s and 1990s led to several political crises, including the deadly Caracazo riots of 1989, two attempted coups in 1992 (1992 Venezuelan coup d'état attempts), and the impeachment of President Carlos Andrés Pérez for embezzlement of public funds in 1993. A collapse in confidence in the existing parties saw the 1998 election (Venezuelan presidential election, 1998) of former coup-involved career officer Hugo Chávez and the launch of the Bolivarian Revolution, beginning with a 1999 Constituent Assembly (1999 Constituent Assembly of Venezuela) to write a new Constitution of Venezuela.
Venezuela is a federal (federation) presidential republic consisting of 23 states (States of Venezuela), the Capital District (Venezuelan Capital District) (covering Caracas), and federal dependencies (Federal Dependencies of Venezuela) (covering Venezuela's offshore islands).
