Costa Ricas Moon Run highlights Monteverdes hidden side

first_imgRelated posts:4,500 runners prepare for Tamarindo Beach Marathon Monteverde’s community radio station aims to inform and entertain town’s diverse population Dealing with climate change in Costa Rica’s treasured Monteverde cloud forest To pave or not to pave? Monteverde’s ongoing roadway saga MONTEVERDE, Puntarenas — As they race this daunting, 62-kilometer ultramarathon, there’s a small stretch where the runners are required to do the most counterintuitive thing imaginable: walk.Participants in Saturday’s Moon Run in Monteverde had to stroll along the 150-meter-long hanging bridge that drapes over the brilliant canopy of one of the world’s rare cloud forests like a string made of metal, so as not to shake it.“If they’re caught running here they could be disqualified,” said freelance photographer and fourth generation Monteverde native Félix Salazar, who has covered the race annually since its inception here five years ago.Besides a few athletes looking for record times, it’s hard to see why anyone would want to rush across this scenic bridge without first taking in the intense onrush of nature around them. A blue hummingbird chased butterflies through the maze of leaves and branches that swayed underneath. Early morning clouds motored on at the same tranquil pace of the runners on the bridge, and each runner seemed to be smiling and joking as they passed by.“Another tough day at the office,” one runner joked before he advanced from the bridge and descended back into a vegetation so dense that any trace of his figure disappeared in seconds. Within the forest at the privately owned Selvatura Park, runners were greeted with mud-ridden paths that quickly turned swamp-like and large fallen branches that impeded their pace.Quetzals flitted in front of the path as if to cheer the runners on, while echoing cries from wild hogs and monkeys rang through the mist. The route created just for the race was far off the paved steps of the park’s visitor trail and is normally off-limits, as are most of the non-paved trails in Selvatura and other area reserves.“That’s the biggest complaint about Monteverde is that so many of its reserves are restricted from the average traveler,” Salazar said. “The runners get to see a whole different side of this place.”From Selvatura’s cloud forest reserve, runners then proceeded west towards the remote mountain town of La Florida de Tilarán where they were met with a punishing climb that foreshadowed a 10-kilometer circuit of steep hillside track. The Moon Run’s 60-kilometer Ultra trail stretches as far west as La Florida de Tilaran of Puntarenas province. (Courtesy of Unlimited Productions)Atop the copper-colored, rocky hill, a pair of falcons soared at eye-level. Marching legs churned towards the menacing loop of narrow dirt trail carved through these chains of mountains that no one seems to know the names of. Here, during what most runners described as the hardest part of the ultramarathon, Moon Run co-founder and Monteverde native Andrés Vargas snapped pictures and shouted encouraging words at the runners. With a mural of flowering clouds and wavy green hills behind him, the curly-haired 36-year-old said this race was partly designed to offer up an often-hidden side of Monteverde.“They see what 99 percent of tourists aren’t going to see,” Vargas said. “It’s a totally virgin area and they’re passing through the same tracks that tapirs or pumas come through. There is flora and fauna that exist here in Monteverde that aren’t in any other place in the world.” Amanda Zuniga/The Tico TimesVargas should know. Afterall, he was born and raised in these mountains and mapped out the courses for the 62-kilometer ultramarathon, the 42-kilometer marathon and the 22-kilometer adventure race, among other shorter races that took place Saturday. Vargas first hiked from Monteverde to Arenal volcano when he was 12, giving him an intimate knowledge of the terrain.“I was raised between the moss and the mud,” Vargas said. “I had spent some time away from Monteverde for awhile, but still I always felt connected to the mountain.”The initial Moon Run was held in Dominical in 2008 and started in the afternoon so that runners would finish after sunset, hence the event’s name. But in search of better infrastructure — and because of Vargas’ ties to his hometown — the race began to be held in Monteverde two years later. “There the seed was planted,” he said.This year, because of troubles securing permits from public agencies like the Public Works and Transport Ministry to race on public roads after dark, the races were done almost entirely during the day for the first time. Moon Race founder and Monteverde native Andrés Vargas took pictures and provided oversight at this year’s event, though he says he wants to compete next year. Amanda Zuniga/The Tico TimesDespite the bureaucratic hiccup, akin to having to change the Super Bowl from Sunday, Sergio Sánchez, who co-founded the event with Vargas, said it gave the opportunity for participants to fully take in one of Costa Rica’s most beautiful locales.“That’s the whole objective of this — to show off Monteverde as it really is,” Sánchez said. “They’re going through the most internal parts of the forest and there you get a very up-close relationship with this nature that not a lot of people get to ever see.”Sánchez, whose company Unlimited Productions hosts adventure sports across Costa Rica, said Monteverde is such a unique backdrop in a country full of natural riches because of its community.“The community of Monteverde is so unified and there’s a great environment of people here,” he said. “These are a diverse set of people that have a vision and don’t depend on the government to do everything for them because they can do everything on their own.” Ultra trail runner Diania Marisa Qusipe makes her way through the 2015 Moon Run on Saturday, December 12. Amanda Zuniga/The Tico TimesAnd the community of Monteverde is linked to the event as more than just a beautiful backdrop. This year’s edition of the Moon Run partnered with the Tropical Science Center, a non-governmental research center in Monteverde that prioritizes environmental conservation and education, to spread awareness among racers and community members.At Saturday’s event, more than 600 runners registered in five different Moon Run races, including 71 in the Ultra Trail. Vargas said each racer brings two family members or friends, on average, meaning that nearly 2,000 people injected money into the local economy this weekend because of the race.“In the case of assisting Monteverde, that was one of the reasons for bringing the race here,” Vargas said. “So I’m satisfied with that.”Runner Fidel Ramírez Hernández from Cartago, who finished third place in the ultramarathon for the second straight year, said he’ll continue coming back to the trail run in Monteverde because of the sheer diversity it offers runners in just a single route.“It’s a very special place,” he said. “Monteverde is unique and it’s always worth it to run here because of how beautiful it is.” The 2015 Moon Run in Monteverde hosted over 600 participants, including 71 runners that competed in the ultramarathon.

Russia says the Wallenberg case is still open

first_img New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like “Believe me, had such an information been known to us, the Russia archivists would have been the first to publish and show it,” Khristoforov told The Associated Press. “When some people say that we are defending the pride of the uniform … it’s ridiculous. This is another state and a different special service.”Khristoforov insisted that he and his colleagues would have no inclination to whitewash the record of Soviet dictator Josef Stalin’s much-feared secret police, known under its Russian acronym, NKVD.“I doubt that any of the Federal Security Service officers today would associate himself with the NKVD and would try to defend the uniform of the NKVD,” he said. “That’s why this argument doesn’t stand criticism.”Khristoforov was taking part in an international conference that included researchers from Sweden, Hungary, Israel and Russia. Some of the speakers strongly urged Khristoforov’s agency to give independent researchers investigating the Wallenberg mystery free access to their archives.“I think full access is really needed,” said Ingrid Carlberg, a Swedish author who recently published a book about Wallenberg. “They can’t possibly know what kind of puzzles I have that could be matched with pieces of information in those archives. If we put them all together, we will have a clearer picture.” Wallenberg is credited with saving thousands of Jews in Budapest by distributing Swedish travel documents or moving them to safe houses.He was arrested in Budapest by the Soviet Red Army in 1945. The Soviets initially denied Wallenberg was in their custody, then said in 1957 that he died of a heart attack in prison on July 17, 1947.The Russian government has never formally retracted the initial Soviet version, but some officials acknowledged that Wallenberg likely had been killed. In 2000, Alexander Yakovlev, the one-time chairman of a presidential panel investigating the fate of repression victims, said he had been told by a former KGB chief that Wallenberg was killed in Lubyanka prison.That year, Russia also conceded that Soviet authorities had wrongfully persecuted Wallenberg and posthumously rehabilitated him as a victim of political repression.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Vasily Khristoforov said that his agency, the Federal Security Service, has no reason to withhold any information about the Swedish diplomat from the public eye. He rejected critics’ allegations that his service, the main KGB successor, could be hiding documents related to Wallenberg’s fate.last_img read more

Citigroup to Sell OneMain to Springleaf for 425 Billion

first_img March 4, 2015 493 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Uncategorized Share Citigroup will sell OneMain Financial Holdings Inc. to Springleaf Holdings Inc for $42.5 billion in cash, according to Reuters. The deal would make Springleaf the largest subprime lender in the U.S, with $15 billion in assets and nearly 2,000 branches.Citigroup has been trying to sell OneMain since 2011 as a plan the bank has implemented to sell unwanted assets and focus on wealthier clients. OneMain is a part of Citi Holdings, which was created during the financial crisis to place assets that Citigroup wanted to divest or wind down. It provides loans to buy small-ticket items and meet unexpected expenses. The company posted a loss of $2 billion in 2010, but has since been profitable, with profits rising 7 percent to $415 million in nine months. OneMain has 1,140 branches in the U.S.According to the article, OneMain had filed to go public in October, but Citigroup had always preferred an outright sale. However, potential buyers had trouble raising funds and Citi was unwilling to sell at prices being offered. Industry experts thought OneMain would sell for more money. Jefferies & Co said it expected OneMain to sell for $5 million.Citigroup said it will use a part of the sale proceeds to retire certain funding that supports Citi Holdings. The combination of the debt retirement and the remaining proceeds is expected to add about $1 billion to Citi’s earnings before income taxes. Citi Holdings’ assets had been reduced to 5 percent of total assets in 2014 from a peak of more than 30 percent, by Citi.Springfield shares rose 38 percent to a record $52.44 on Tuesday, while Citigroup’s shares were slightly higher at $53.73. Springleaf CEO Jay Levine said the combined company is expected to earn $800 to $900 million in 2017, according to Reuters.center_img Citigroup to Sell OneMain to Springleaf for $42.5 Billion Citigroup One Main Springleaf.

Punjab’s drug problem Punjab and other parts of north India have a culture of consuming ‘afeem’ for recreational and other purposes said Pramod Kumar Director Institute for Development and Communication (IDC) Chandigarh who led a 2001 study on drug user profiles that was tabled in the Punjab State Assembly in 2008 It may be recalled that in 2007 expelled Bharatiya Janata Party leader Jaswant Singh was reported to have distributed a poppy-based drink to guests at an event in his native village Jasol in Rajasthan Contrary to the image of an idle Punjabi taking to drugs only 16 percent of the IDC’s sample of drug users was unemployed “24 percent of drug users were farmers and 25 percent were labourers mostly migrants from Bihar and Uttar Pradesh put on drugs to extract maximum work out of them” according to Kumar Supply is easy because heroin from Afghanistan is smuggled across the border into Punjab for onward transit to the West Opium poppy husk charas and ganja among other drugs enter the state from Himachal Pradesh Madhya Pradesh Rajasthan etc Chemists and other peddlers supply prescription drugs “The green revolution and healthy remittances from overseas have put more money in the hands of the middle class” said Kumar and fuelled “demand for conspicuous consumption goods like alcohol and drugs” Better policing family participation and above all skilling “Too many people are out to earn money by peddling drugs” –Ravi (name changed) 23 a drug addict who quit a few months ago told this reporter easy supply and peer pressure got him hooked about five years ago during his college days Punjab needs “supply side interventions such as checking the illegal drug trade and confiscating the illegally acquired assets of those involved with the drug trade something the law allows (section 68 of the Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act 1988)” said the IDC’s Kumar Interventions to reduce demand would include initiatives “to make the youth employable build partnerships with parents and community leaders to become mentors for the prevention and treatment of drug abuse” said Kumar “It is the state’s responsibility to create sports and other recreational facilities for youth; essentially the focus should be on healthy ways of having fun and spending free time learning to enjoy life without drugs” said Deol of the Guru Nanak Trust Treatment is integral to reducing drug demand In 1979 a study published in the British Journal of Addiction found 19 percent of a sample of Chhajli’s (then) 6699 population using opium mostly as dependent users; 6 percent used barbiturates and 2 percent cannabis A 2011 study of the same village published in the Delhi Psychiatry Journal found only 34 percent of the sample was addicted to opium marking an 82 percent fall in the use of opium attributable “to the efforts of post graduate students from Government Medical College Patiala to sensitise the villagers to the problem of drug use and encourage them to seek treatment” said Dr Balwant Singh Sidhu professor & head Psychiatry Rajendra Hospital Government Medical College Patiala and study co-author One of the biggest findings of the AIIMS study (see box) is that while four in five patients had tried to kick the habit just over one in three had received any kind of support One in six patients had received some kind of medical treatment and only one in 10 opioid-dependents had received Opioid Substitution Therapy (OST) de-addiction treatment that involves an opioid medication to help patients with long-term withdrawal “This is because the existing rules have been misinterpreted in the state OST is being allowed only for the licensed in-patient centres” said Ambekar “Punjab must integrate OST into out-patient clinic-based health services for better results Restricting such treatment only to addicts admitted to de-addiction centres is severely limiting the number of patients who can be helped” In April 2012 the deputy chief minister consulted psychiatrists from the Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research Chandigarh to draw up a strategy to reduce addiction The recommendations of the consultation with psychiatrists required Badal’s administration to create five model de-addiction centres (in Amritsar Faridkot Patiala Jalandhar and Bathinda) and 25 intermediate-level de-addiction centres train medical professionals and make available essential drugs for running the services Badal would do better to share an update on the implementation of these recommendations Punjab Opioid Dependence Survey: Key findings To arrive at the number of opioid addicts the investigators of the Punjab Opioid Dependence Survey 2015 interviewed 3620 opioid addicts in 10 of 22 districts of the state home to

for treatment in those 10 districts were 2414 in 2014 This yielded a figure of 134000 opioid addicts for the 10 districts and 232000 for the entire state Some key findings of the profile of

of burglaries at residences of JNU professors inside campus has faculty members on edge after as many as six daylight burglaries were reported in a specific area of the campus last month The latest break-in was reported Sunday afternoon when homes of two professors were found ransacked within hours of each other Faculty members and the administration said the burglaries followed a set pattern with houses being targeted in the Dakshinapuram area on campus between 3 and 5 pm Two of the six professors have filed FIRs at the Vasant Kunj (north) police station Watch What Else Is Making News JNU Rector Chintamani Mahapatra said the administration is taking steps to prevent such instances “The pattern of burglaries has led to a widespread belief that the thieves are hiding somewhere within the JNU campus So we are taking steps accordingly Firstly within a few days we are going to have a Town Hall interaction between senior police officers and the JNU community where they will sensitise people about how to prevent such instances We are also thinking of starting some kind of community policing of the area” he said JCP (southeastern range) R P Upadhaya said two such cases have been reported to them so far “Of the two cases one is already worked out We are trying to work out the other case as well” said Upadhaya Sources in the police said the campus was gated and only staff members were allowed to enter inside “Private security guards keep a check on the visitors We have questioned them as well” said the JCP Professor Ritoo Jerath from the School of International Studies (SIS) who had gone out Sunday afternoon came back to find her house (44 Dakshinapuram) had been burgled “I left the house at 1115 am and went to visit my mother When I came back at 445 pm one of the doors was ajar and the place was ransacked I called police and JNU security immediately” she said She added that teachers suspected it was the work of people within the campus who knew their daily schedules Jerath’s neighbour Professor Kamal Mitra Chenoy said the robbers had broken into two other faculty members home — including that of Professor Sanjay Puri on Sunday “Mrs Puri came home a little earlier than she usually does and she said she heard the thieves running away Incidentally the thieves did not break into the two houses next to Professor Jerath which have dogs” said Chenoy Professor Swaran Singh also from SIS and lives across Professor Jerath said his house too was broken into and ransacked on September 15 “My daughter is getting married in November and we had valuables

Express App More Top NewsBy Yogesh Upadhyaya Mumbai can save 150 per centmore water by drinking tea without sugar for a day than can be saved by banning a season of Indian Premier League (IPL)—India’s professional cricket tournament—matches in three Maharashtra stadia our calculations reveal The Bombay High Court suggested that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) reconsider its decision to hold IPL matches in Maharashtra because of a widespread drought (read IndiaSpend drought reports here here and here) but refused to stay the first match to be played at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on Friday Maharashtra’s three stadia–at Mumbai Pune and Nagpur–would use 6 million litres of water for the twenty matches according to the petitioner an advocacy called the Loksatta Movement While this seems like a lot of water there are more effective ways of saving water than not watering cricket grounds if we use the concept of embedded water–the water used in production of a product Agriculture consumes almost 85 per centof water consumed in India according to India Infrastructure Report 2011 We consume water for drinking bathing cooking and even washing cars but we consume much more water through food This is because large quantities of water are used to grow and process that food For example this estimate by National Geographic says more than 1500 litres of water are used to produce half a kg of chicken and nearly 1000 litres to produce a bottle of wine “(The real culprit) is the state’s policy that encourages production of the water-guzzling sugarcane” Sunil Jain wrote in this column in the Financial Express National Geographic also tells us that more than 1500 litres of water is used to produce a kg of sugar Now even if we assume that approximately 20 per centof Mumbai’s population or 25 million people drink a cup of tea every day with a teaspoon of sugar that comes to nearly 10000 kg of sugar This sugar has 15 million litres of water embedded–meaning it has cost us 15 million litres of water to produce this much sugar That is 25 times the water to be used in the three IPL venues in Maharashtra Of course this calculation has many approximations For one estimates of how much water is embedded in different foods vary widely and can be different in different places For another we have no way of knowing how many cups of tea (or coffee or cold coffee or milk or aerated drinks) are consumed every day in the city However the calculation is an indication that intuition may not serve us well when it comes to issues such as water conservation One may point out that not consuming sugar for a day will only reduce the demand for sugar infinitesimally and will most probably not reduce the production of sugar even next year Obviously it will not have any impact on the water situation in Marathwada today But then so wouldn’t using less water in Wankhede stadium After all the water not used in Wankhede would not be transported more than 400 km away to Latur in the crisis-ridden Marathwada region in Maharashtra The High Court probably knows this but its intention is to focus the attention of people on what is happening to fellow citizens Focusing on sugar consumption is a much better way of doing that because unlike cricket growing sugarcane is a significant part of the water problem in large parts of Maharashtra and India Sugarcane uses a disproportionately high amount of water this Current Science study explained Of 650 billion cubic metres (BCM) of water available for irrigation nationwide 15 per cent or 100 BCM of water is used by sugarcane (the crop uses water from reservoirs as well as groundwater) which is planted on no more than 25 per centof India’s farmland as IndiaSpend recently

The first fire broke out on January 28 and lasted 10 days Related News DAYS AFTER 13 men were arrested for allegedly inciting ragpickers to start fires in the Deonar dumping ground the families of the arrested accused said the charges were baseless They said the men were arrested without being questioned earlier and that the arrests appeared to have been done under pressure Families of at least seven of the accused said they were not scrap dealers though Deputy Commissioner of Police (Zone VI) Sangramsing Nishandar had said at a press conference on April 16 that nine accused arrested the previous day were scrap dealers Families of 11 accused told The Indian Express that the Shivaji Nagar police had picked up the men on April 15 and 16 on the pretext of conducting “medical tests” They said the police had kept them in the dark about the charges slapped on the men Share This Article Related Article Though the police said there was evidence including eyewitness statements against those arrested they did not seek custody of the accused All 13 are in judicial custody in Arthur Road jail Nazneen wife of accused Saida Shaikh (48) said “My husband picks up coconut from various localities and sells the dry pulp He has nothing to do with garbage Yet the police arrested him along with the others when he was sitting on the street near our home” Family members of the thirteen accused arrested by the Shivaji Nagar police station for the Deonar dumping ground fires Photo of two accused: In blue shirt: Shamim khan in white shirt: Shoaib Shaikh Twenty-two-year-old Shoaib Shaikh’s mother Shehnaz Begum said “My son has been working as a ragpicker since he was 12 years old and he mostly picks plastic He had a valid pass to enter the dumping ground and he was not attached to any particular scrap dealer” Vehemently denying the allegation that her son was involved in any sabotage she said there was no reason for Shoaib to set fire to a place that was the only source of livelihood for the household When contacted DCP Nishandar said the police did not claim that all those arrested were scrap dealers “Some of them were working at the behest of the scrap dealers to go inside the dumping ground to either collect waste or to hire ragpickers and also to light the fire to separate the waste” he said Family members of several other accused said policemen had asked the men to come along for “blood tests” and then arrested them “One of the policemen said they were taking them for medical tests for possible harmful effects of working in the dumping ground for long hours The next thing we knew is that they were booked for the fire and produced before court and were then sent straight to jail” said Sadrunnisa Wahid Khan mother of 20-year-old Shamim Khan one of the accused arrested on Friday An hour after the men were taken to the police station the families came to know that cases had been slapped against them for causing the fire at the Deonar dumping ground on January 28 The 13 accused have been booked under six charges including Sections 269 (negligent act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life) 285 (negligent conduct with respect to fire or combustible matter) 435 (mischief by fire or explosive substance with intent to cause damage) 436 (mischief by fire or explosive substance with intent to destroy house) 336 (act endangering life or personal safety of others) and 34 (common intention) of the Indian Penal Code The charges if proven are serious enough to warrant maximum of a life term The fire which first broke out in January and lasted 10 days before restarting intermittently several times in the later weeks worsened the air quality in the city forcing the government to order an inquiry into the matter An FIR was registered against unknown persons which now includes names of the 13 accused “When we first came to know about the arrests the police kept telling us that they would let my husband go by Saturday morning Later the police said they had orders to make these arrests and that more people would be picked up” said Sakira Shaikh whose husband Mohammad Hussain Shaikh drives garbage dumpers The police arrested nine men on Friday evening and then four on Saturday and all nine were sent to judicial custody by a local court where they were presented on Saturday and Sunday respectively The police did not seek custodial interrogation of any one of them At the same time family members said these men had not been previously interrogated by police either Nishandar said he would have to check with the investigating officer why custodial interrogation was not sought to probe their role in the fires “The police have claimed that some ragpickers gave statements that they were hired by these accused to light fires to segregate waste The accused include ragpickers How did the police decide which ragpicker to charge as accused and whom to make witnesses” asked one family member He asked how the police would prove a common intent of all the scrap dealers together to light a fire inside the dumping ground on the day of the incident Responding to queries on why the police had initially claimed that all those arrested were scrap dealers Additional Commissioner of Police (East Region) Manoj Lohia said “We will not categorise the accused as those who are scrap dealers and those who are not We have arrested those against whom there is evidence including statements by witnesses who have said they were hired by these men to light fires to the waste We know that there are many more who are behind the fires and our investigation will lead us to them” He added that there were some working on salaries of these accused to light the fires and that some of these were witnesses in the case When asked how they had differentiated between which ragpickers to arrest and which ones to take as witnesses Lohia said the investigation was still in progress WATCH INDIAN
