Coast Guard, Partner Agencies Interdict 5th Western Caribbean Drug Sub

first_img The cutter Pea Island and Decisive diverted to the given position. The cutter Pea Island and Decisive’s pursuit boatcrews interdicted the SPSS and detained four suspected smugglers. The SPSS sank during the interdiction in thousands of feet of water. “Medium endurance cutters like the Decisive are built for multi-week offshore patrols including operations requiring enhanced communications, and helicopter and pursuit boat operations,” said Capt. Brendan McPherson, 7thCoast Guard District chief of enforcement. “When combined with patrol boats like the Pea Island, which has superior speed and flexibility, it helps us and our partners to provide the Coast Guard’s unique blend of military capability, law enforcement authority, and lifesaving expertise wherever needed to protect American interests.” A Coast Guard Air Station Miami aircrew, working in the Caribbean in support of JIATF-S Operation Martillo, spotted a suspicious vessel and notified 7th Coast Guard District watchstanders of the location. By Dialogo April 20, 2012 It is not strange that the U.S. is a drug consumer. Why so many efforts to prevent smuggling if at the end of the day they are the ones who consume the most. They should allow the entry of drugs so they can be cheaper because the more there is, the cheaper the drugs. The crews of the Coast Guard Cutter Decisive, Coast Guard Cutter Pea Island, Joint Interagency Task Force South (JIATF-S), and the Honduran Navy interdicted a drug smuggling, self-propelled semi-submersible (SPSS) vessel in the Western Caribbean Sea on March 30. Built in the jungles and remote areas of South America, the typical SPSS is less than 100 feet in length, with four or five crewmembers, and carries up to 10 metric tons of illicit cargo for distances up to 5,000 miles. Drug traffickers design SPSS vessels to be difficult to spot and to rapidly sink when they detect law enforcement, thereby making contraband recovery difficult. SPSS vessels are used regularly to transport illegal narcotics in the Eastern Pacific, and this interdiction is only the fifth Coast Guard interdiction of an SPSS in the Caribbean. The Coast Guard’s first interdiction of a drug smuggling, SPSS vessel in the Western Caribbean Sea took place on July 13, 2011. The U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Navy, Customs and Border Protection, and partner nation aircraft and vessel crews work together to conduct counter drug patrols in the Caribbean Sea.last_img read more

Find out how Bakar has shown that it deserves its place under the “tourist sun”

first_imgIn the city of Bakar, which has no tourist but industrial past, they started proactively telling a new story, with the aim of changing the perception from negative to positive, ie to show their tourist story and perspective, in which they can and have something to show.Copper certainly deserves its place under the sun in Kvarner, but as it starts practically from scratch and with a strong negative perception, the beginning is always difficult, especially when working and building something in more than scarce resources, both human and financial. Every start is difficult, it requires a lot of energy, effort, energy and work, but the most important thing is to start.It was TZ Bakra that bravely stepped forward and started actively telling tourist stories from Bakar. Thus, through the storytelling concept, last week she told the story of the famous Frankopan family through the interpretation tour “Walk with the virgin Margaret” as part of the event “Walk through history – the time of the Frankopans”. All this is part of the Margaret Summer event, which lasts from June 23.06. to 28.07.2018/XNUMX/XNUMX Thus, for nine long centuries from the first mention of the Frankopan princes of Krk, they were the inspiration for the program designed by the Tourist Board of Bakar and the City of Bakar to evoke the Middle Ages by opening the doors of the imposing Frankopan castle in Bakar for the first time.In the labyrinth of his rooms, he revived the life of the Middle Ages, which was staged by the Association for Revived History “Ordo Sancti Viti”, evoking a medieval armory, dormitory, office, gastronomy and crafts. In addition to local and authentic gastronomic delicacies of copper associations, visitors listened to interesting, instructive and witty stories about the Frankopans told by professional narrator Srebrenka Peregrin, but also enjoyed the old dances performed by the dance group Kontea from Konjščina. Their medieval costumes were designed according to the ideas of the dancers themselves, and the leader Renata Kreber Mikšaj pointed out that it was a special experience to dance in such an authentic space. “We are in this building for the first time and considering many similar ones I have seen in the country and abroad, I think that Bakar’s Kastel belongs to the very top in terms of its beauty and potential, and I am looking forward to its complete renovation. ” pointed out Kreber Mikšaj.One of the most impressive experiences was the program in the atrium of Kaštela in which the klapas “Škrljevo” and “Reful” sang alternately and spontaneously, and with them the audience nibbling on baškote and toasting with Bakar water and Frankopan cake of the tourist future of Bakar, enjoying the concert excellent Šibenik tenor Marko Škugor.The greatest interest of visitors was caused by the sightseeing of the city of Bakar, in addition to the traditional and well-attended, for the first time they could participate in the interpretation tour “Walk with the Virgin Margeret” designed exclusively for this occasion by Iva Silla, the first licensed interpretation guide and coach in Croatia. The walk on Bakar’s Peril, a place on the waterfront where rich sources of fresh water flow into the sea and where Bakar’s women used to wash clothes, attracted a large number of visitors to Bakar in two terms.One of the visitors even went down to Perilo to show the clumsy maid Margaret the way copper women used to do it. Guides Ivo Silla as the diva Margareta and Marjeta Trkman Kravar as Elizabeta Frankopan studied the history of Bakar, which they transformed into a drinkable, dynamic, interactive walk through Bakar, in which they were faithfully accompanied by visitors from all over Kvarner, but also from Zagreb and Slovenia. . “The success of this tour confirms that the tourist audience is eager for such content and that our city really has a series of stories that are worth telling so that one day, finally, the industrial for which it is known, pushed into the background. We are happy with great reactions like one of our Bakranin, a doctor who lives in Zagreb and a history lover who was delighted with the way two Zagreb guides presented and studied the history of Frankopan and Bakar or a Slovenian guest who said that it is not necessary to go to destinations such as is the Cinque Terre when Copper is so close! ” said the director of the Tourist Board of the City of Bakar, Sonja Jelušić Marić, announcing a lot of new tourist products based on the interpretation of natural and historical heritage as the main trump card of the tourist development of the city of Bakar.That this tourist story happened in a “bigger and more famous” city as well as a dog with a bigger budget, although it is a well-arranged story, concept, interpretation, involvement and education of the local population, promotion of indigenous gastronomy, as well as the overall performance , I’m sure many would talk about Copper.But that is why support should always be given to those who do not accept the “status quo” and who are awake dreaming of a better and brighter future. Tourism is one of the important tools for presenting oneself in a new world, because logically, tourism attracts tourists, both domestic and foreign, as well as the media. That is why Russia ran to host the World Cup, which is currently underway, to show the global scene and tourists another modern and positive story about Russia, and change the stereotype of “drunk Russians stumbling through the streets.” Regardless of the price, in Russia the whole cost of organizing this mega event is not seen as a cost, but as an investment.It is extremely difficult to develop a tourist product in an area that has not been on the tourist map so far, especially when it has a negative connotation, such as in the case of Bakar – heavy industry. Of course, in the whole story, the awareness of the whole destination, ie the community, is important, as tourism can be a new economic branch of development, and in the case of Bakar it certainly can, and it is necessary to invest a lot of energy, effort and most importantly money. rather than evolving for decades, snail steps. Development needs to be accelerated, and we can only do that by investing. Investing in events is the fastest step, of course if we arrange the whole story wisely and strategically, and the most important thing is again the awareness that this is not a cost, but an investment. Manifestations develop in 3-5 years at best to be self-sustaining and that is the process.Perhaps the best example is Baranja, which was in a similar situation. If someone had said five years ago that tourists would come to Baranja from Zagreb on weekends, they would have laughed at him, and today Baranja has positioned itself as the main Slavonian tourist destination.Bravo for Bakar, which needs much greater support from the CNTB, MINT and the Kvarner Tourist Board, both in logistical, professional and financial aspects. We need help for destinations that do not yet have a developed tourist infrastructure and tourist products, of course for those that have real tourist potentials, and Bakara certainly has all the prerequisites.Just imagine the spectacle of the Naval Battle of Bakar, which attracted 15.000 visitors last year, at the production level of Advent in Zagreb or the Rijeka Carnival? Yes, Bakar deserves this story, and not only them, but all other “small and insufficiently developed” tourist destinations that have great tourist potential, because they certainly can not make that step forward.And that’s why Copper drops down. Just go ahead bravely.Related news:OPEN EDUCATIONAL PATH OF PONIKVA IN THE HINTERLAND OF COPPER – A LAKE THAT IS FORMING AND DISAPPEARINGlast_img read more

Wuhan fans in tears as they watch their first match since virus

first_img‘Cheer with us’ Fans going to football matches is more evidence of China’s recovery from the coronavirus — the number of new infections has plummeted since the country shut down in February.However, the return of Wuhan Zall supporters — nine months after they last saw their team in the flesh in the CSL — is especially symbolic.In late January, Wuhan and its 11 million people was the first city in the world to go on a coronavirus lockdown. It dragged on for 76 days and was particularly harsh.”But now after the restart [of life] and our return to the stadium, we can show the spirit of the Wuhan people and our fans to other fans across the country, and even to the whole world,” said Gao.This was also 74-year-old Shi Anshi’s first time out of Wuhan since the lockdown was lifted.Shi, who has had “several” coronavirus tests, and his fellow Wuhan fanatics are aware that a stigma surrounds their city.He has a message: “Wuhan is definitely safe now, I hope you all come to Wuhan for sightseeing.”And if you are a football fan, come and cheer for the team with us.”Zall remain third of eight teams in the Suzhou group and their Spanish coach Jose Gonzalez said: “For me and the players the supporters are very, very important.”In football, the most important [thing] is the supporters. Football without the supporters is a different sport.” Fans of Wuhan Zall, the Chinese Super League club from the epicenter of the coronavirus, on Sunday attended their first match since the pandemic — and burst into tears as their team fought back to draw 2-2.About 300 Wuhan supporters made the 750-kilometre (450 miles) trip eastwards to Suzhou and saw their side score twice in three minutes in the second half against title contenders Beijing Guoan.The CSL has been slowly opening up to a very limited number of spectators, having started the season behind closed doors in July, but they must pass a coronavirus test in the seven days leading up to the game. The whole squad and coaching staff went over to that corner of the stadium and applauded.”When the two foreign players scored and we equalized, we couldn’t help but burst into tears in the stands,” said Gao Yajun, who had left Wuhan for the first time since the coronavirus emerged there late last year.The 42-year-old — whose nails are painted in Zall’s orange-and-white colors and has a face mask with the team’s fiery emblem — and many other supporters struggled to sleep in the build-up to the game because they were so excited.”We are really happy, and I feel maybe tonight we won’t sleep again,” she said.Along with Dalian, Suzhou is hosting games this season in the CSL, which has been reformatted and kicked off five months late because of the virus. Beforehand, Wuhan supporters held a banner outside the stadium thanking the rest of China for its support in the central city’s battle against the coronavirus.Once inside they refused to sit down and sang almost non-stop, even when their team looked doomed at 0-2 down at half-time, before Brazilian Leo Baptistao and Jean Evrard Kouassi of the Ivory Coast struck to drag Zall back into the game.”We have hearts of absolute sincerity and stay united through the wind and waves,” the Zall fans sang, the chant reverberating around the mostly empty Suzhou arena, where they were spaced out by one meter as part of epidemic prevention measures.But at the end, after witnessing their team rescue a point, all social distancing was forgotten. The Zall fans, bouncing on their feet, banging drums and with their arms flung over each other’s shoulders, serenaded their side with cries of “Wuhan! Wuhan!” Topics :last_img read more

ESG roundup: ESG demand, The 30% Club, UK Carbon Budget

first_imgHowever, when it came to the reasons for incorporating this into their investment strategy, the majority, 58%, of respondents did so due to a sense of personal responsibility.In addition, just over half (52%) stated that it was the companies’ procedure to apply such criteria to investments.In terms of the most proactive practitioners of these principles, developed economies were perceived to be the most keen, with Western Europe cited by 86% of respondents, followed by North America with 36% and Australasia with 24%.With regard to asset owners, pension funds were viewed as the most willing group to incorporate ESG factors within their portfolios – cited by 73% of respondents – ahead of charities with 62%.The research was conducted among 85 pension fund managers and advisers in September.In other news, an interim report by The 30% Club’s ‘Balancing the Pyramid’ Group, business psychology consultancy YSC and professional services firm KPMG revealed that a man starting his career with a large FTSE 100 UK company is 4.5 times more likely to make it to the executive committee than his female counterpart, despite a now average 21% female representation at the surveyed organisations’ executive committee level and 25% of organisations achieving 30% female representation.The study – undertaken across a section of FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 companies, totalling more than 450,000 employees, both male and female – has debunked some of the myths about how women progress to the very top and aims to give practical and constructive advice to companies on how to update their gender intelligence.It found that, overall, men and women are equally ambitious. However, because women tend not to show the same level of ambition early, this exponentially lifts by the time they reach executive levels, according to the study, and companies need to consistently reassess career options for women, particularly when male peers are more overt about aspiring over a longer range.Helena Morrissey, chief executive at Newton Investment Management and founder of The 30% Club, said: “Men and women are different – equally intelligent, but we behave differently and are motivated by different things.”This new research gives more depth to the intuitive argument that balanced teams perform better and gives companies specific actionable ideas to improve their management of all talent – regardless of gender.”The study found that quality of line-management proved a bigger boost to women’s commitment than formal development programmes, sponsoring, mentoring or executive coaching.The full analysis and report will finish early next year.Meanwhile, European investors have responded to the publication of the Committee on Climate Change’s updated recommendations on the UK’s Fourth Carbon Budget by urging the government to stick to its current emissions reduction objectives to deliver the billions in energy investment the country needs.Stephanie Pfeifer, chief executive of the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change (IIGCC) – which represents more than 85 of Europe’s largest investors, worth a combined €7.5trn – said: “The UK desperately needs investment in its energy infrastructure to secure its future power supply. Independent estimates have put this investment need at £330bn (€392bn) by 2030.”This investment will only happen if investors are confident in the UK government’s commitment to a low-carbon energy future. Changing course on emissions reduction objectives now would undermine this confidence and damage investment prospects.“By putting in place ambitious policies, the UK can be a leader in the development of a low-carbon economy that creates jobs and boosts growth. The government can reassure investors and signal its commitment to a low-carbon future by sticking to the emissions-reduction objectives outlined in the fourth carbon budget.” Nearly half of institutional investors, 48%, say their appetite for environmental, social and governance (ESG) or socially responsible investment (SRI) strategies has increased over the past six months, according to research by ING Investment Management International (ING IM).Three-quarters of surveyed investors believe being environmentally and socially responsible – as well as encouraging good global governance  – is important to the future of investment.The findings also show that two-thirds of investment professionals responsible for pension funds already integrate ESG or SRI into their investment processes.Of those surveyed, a greater reliance on responsible investment criteria was expected to bear fruit in terms of investment return over the next five years.last_img read more
