Perú declares state of emergency to fight drug trafficking

first_imgBy Dialogo September 15, 2014 The President of Perú declared a 60-day state of emergency Sept. 11 in the Amazonian districts of Mariscal Ramón Castilla and Yavari, in the Loreto Region, to allow security forces to increase their efforts to fight drug trafficking. Security forces are focusing on fighting drug trafficking in regions bordering Colombia and Brazil. The state of emergency allows security forces to conduct searches without warrants and prohibits public gatherings. The National Police and the military are cooperating to “effectively combat illegal drug trafficking” in the districts that are home to about 28,000, the Executive branch of the government said in a prepared statement said. The state of the emergency is declared in the Executive Order 057-2014-PCM. Peruvian security forces recently destroyed numerous drug laboratories in Mariscal Ramón Castilla and Yavari, where authorities plan to eradicate 3,500 hectares of coca, the main ingredient used to produce cocaine. Perú is the world’s leading cocaine-producing country, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). In 2012, criminal organizations cultivated more than 60,000 hectares of coca crops in Perú, according to the UNODC’s annual report, “Perú: Cocaine Cultivation Monitoring 2012.” Perú is home to 13-coca growing regions, with 60,400 hectares which are used for coca cultivation, according to the report. Peruvian, Colombian and Brazilian police have noticed in spike in narco-trafficking – specifically in shipments of drugs and precursor chemicals – along the countries’ borders. Drug trafficking groups process about 200 tons of cocaine in Perú’s Apurimac, Ene and Mantaro River Valleys (VRAEM) annually, Peruvian security analyst Rubén Vargas told La República. Drug traffickers transport about 90 percent of that cocaine through the air, he said. The cocaine is then transported throughout the world, with shipments headed to Central America, North America, Brazil, Mexico, Europe and Asia. In recent months, Peruvian security forces dismantled 37 clandestine drug trafficking air strips in early September. Security forces blasted massive holes in the runways to prevent them from being used. Local residents build the secret airstrips and charge drug traffickers a fee, to use them, according to Peruvian police. Peruvian authorities must remain vigilant in their efforts to dismantle drug trafficking air strips, Deputy Defense Minister Iván Vega said: “We might destroy the runways, but locals financed by drug traffickers will come to put them together again so the flights continue.” From January 1 through August 31 2014, Peruvian authorities destroyed 12,721 hectares of coca plants, according to Peru’s National Commission for a Drug-Free Life (DEVIDA). Their goal is to eradicate 30,000 hectares of the crop in 2014. Ninety-three percent of coca crops in Peru are used to produce the drug, according to DEVIDA. In 2013, Peruvian security forces authorities eradicated more than 23,947 hectares which were used for coca cultivation, a significant increase from the 14,234 hectares security forces destroyed in 2012.last_img read more

Finding your own routine

But even applying all the various techniques and tips described in each and every book won’t necessarily make me a great leader.I’ve learned – and Harvard Business Review contributor Todd Warner has covered this subject – that to be a great leader I must know my organization, my staff, myself and the daily routines that help me succeed.Warner offers some simple steps a leader can take to become a better leader. They include:– Self-assess. “Where do you spend your time, what do you focus on? These habits define your effectiveness as a leader,” he writes. In honestly assessing your routines and habits, you are taking an important step toward improvement as a leader.– Study high-performers. “Leadership is an applied craft,” Warner writes.

Skelos Corruption Trial: Wiretaps Reveal Senators & Son Ripping Cuomo, Environmentalists

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York A New York State lawmaker suggested that he might have voted differently on a bill if he knew that the family of former state Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos (R-Rockville Centre) allegedly profited from legislation Skelos helped pass.The lawmaker, state Sen. Tony Avella (D-Queens), made the remarks as one of four witnesses to take the stand Wednesday in the second day of the corruption trial against Skelos and his son, Adam, at federal court in Manhattan, where testimony was peppered with spicy recordings of wiretapped phone conversations of the senator talking to his son and others.“It would have indicated that undue influence was given to an issue of legislation based on personal interest,” Avella testified, adding that he also would have aired such information publicly on the Senate floor and to the press as well as called for an investigation. Defense attorneys objected to this line of questioning because it required Avella to give his opinion on allegations that prosecutors are still trying to prove in court, but U.S. District Court Judge Kimba Wood allowed it.Both the senator, 67, and his son, 33, deny the federal prosecutor’s accusations that they extorted $300,000 in bribes from three companies in payments that took the form of “no-show” jobs that Adam was unqualified for in exchange for their illegally manipulating legislation.G. Robert Gage Jr., the senator’s defense attorney, and Christopher Conniff, who represents Adam, sought to poke holes in Avella’s credibility.Gage noted that Avella, a public critic of the real estate industry, accepted campaign donations from realty groups and developers. Gage noted that when reporters questioned Avella about the contradiction, the Queens politician was quoted as saying that “the contributions have absolutely no impact on legislation.” In court, Avella, the former state Senate ethics committee chair, told Gage: “When it comes to me, they don’t.”Avella was the third witness to take the stand. The first was Chris Curcio, a Floral Park resident and Adam’s former boss at Physicians Reciprocal Insurance (PRI), a medical malpractice insurance firm whose owner had been asked by Sen. Skelos to give Adam a $78,000-per-year job as a favor beginning in 2013. Curcio testified that shortly after he met Adam, he started keeping a handwritten log for the first four months of Adam’s employment to detail when Adam did and did not show up. The majority of the dates were marked “no show,” yet Adam submitted time sheets indicating that he consistently worked 35-hour weeks.When Curcio questioned Adam about his failure to show up for work, Curcio testified that Adam told him that there was a “special arrangement” between his senator dad and Anthony Bonomo, a longtime friend of the Skeloses, which allowed him to work only two days a week. Curcio also testified that in order to sell medical malpractice insurance, Adam was required to take a 99-hour class and a state licensing exam. Curcio testified that Adam completed the class but failed the exam at least twice, and never got his license.“Adam and I had a blow-out on the phone one day,” Curcio testified, referring to his repeated attempts to force him to show up to work. Curcio said that after he told Adam it wasn’t working out, Adam told him: “If you talk to me like that again, I’ll smash your fucking head in.”Read: Skelos Wiretaps Reveal Greed, F-BombsAfter Curcio told Carl Bonomo, his boss and uncle, about the situation with Adam, the senator’s son was made a telemarketing “consultant” at a reduced salary of $36,000. He was required to call 100 doctors a week in order to try and drum up business for PRI. Prosecutors presented emails in court indicating that Adam only called three doctors per week, and none of his efforts ever led to a solid sales lead.On cross examination, Gage asked if Curcio knew if the senator was supposed to help PRI get legislation passed that would benefit the company in exchange for hiring Adam. Curcio said that he did not and didn’t ask his bosses why they hired him.Conniff questioned Curcio on the accuracy of his log and how Curcio himself got his job at PRI. He testified that Curcio’s mother had asked his uncle to land him a job supervising the sales staff despite his own lack of experience in the field.Tatiana Martins, one of the prosecutors trying the case, followed up and asked Curcio: “Is your mother an elected official?”Curcio replied: “No.”Martins asked: “Is she the senate majority leader?”Curcio replied: “No.”Martins asked: “Does she control legislation that effects PRI?”Curcio replied: “No.”The second witness to take the stand was Vanessa Tibbits, one of the FBI agents who monitored the Skelos wiretaps. She explained the process of getting approvals to “go up on a wire” as well as the strict protocols that include the listening room being locked and only accessible to the public corruption squad due to the sensitivity of investigations like this. She testified before the first Skelos wiretaps were played in open federal court.In one conversation, the elder Skelos was heard speaking with state Sen. Jack Martins (R-Mineola) about making a joint statement announcing their intention to focus on water issues on Long Island. They discussed how they didn’t want to fund water-quality improvement projects supported by Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone, but instead they wanted to do their own water projects. Skelos liked the idea of appeasing “the environmental nuts.”In another call, Adam whined to his father about Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s banning fracking. That’s because AbTech, the storm-water filtration firm the men are accused of coercing fees from, also makes fracking waste-water filters.“Arghhhh, this day sucks!” Adam is heard telling his dad in the wiretap.“It does,” his dad replies, “but we’re totally gonna focus on the other thing now.”Adam then urged his father to run for governor and unseat Cuomo.“I would be so proud if you would just kick his ass,” Adam said.The Republican state senator had choice words for the Democratic governor.“No more buddy-buddy,” Skelos said. “He’s full of shit.”last_img read more

Consensus of social partners reached: new collective agreement on hospitality concluded

first_imgIn the tourism sector, the social partners reached an agreement even after six months of negotiations concluded a new Collective Agreement of the hospitality industry, whose signatories are the HUP Association of Hospitality and Tourism and the Trade Union of Tourism and Services of Croatia and the Trade Union of Istria, Kvarner and Dalmatia.New collective bargaining agreement as such retains the same level of rights and obligations for workers and entrepreneurs in this sector, and as the greatest novelty it brings significant increases in the lowest basic salaries for all typical catering occupations which take effect from April 2018.Given the different intensity of business and the specifics of the daily and weekly schedule of working hours for caterers, it is especially important to maintain the possibility of using redistribution for a maximum of 60 hours per week and a reduced daily rest of 8 hours. Salaries increased by 10% that is, new amounts of the lowest gross basic salary for typical jobs in the hospitality industry have been agreed in the amount of HRK 4.700,00 for jobs waiters, chefs, pastry chefs, receptionists… The stated amount represents the minimum basic salary on which allowances for night work, work on Sundays and holidays and overtime work are additionally calculated according to the amounts defined by the collective agreement. On the occasion of concluding a new Collective Agreement on Hospitality, the President of HUP Association of Hospitality and Tourism, Željko Kukurin stated: “Human resources are the biggest challenge for the further development of tourism. On the one hand, tourism is currently the most desirable and promising sector in Croatia in terms of job opportunities and career development opportunities. On the other hand, we still have a lot of work to do to create competitive conditions in relation to the surrounding countries. I am glad that we have reached a consensus with the branch unions because they are an important partner for us in creating such conditions. The new branch collective agreement ensures the continuity of the regulation of labor relations and the minimum rights and obligations of workers and employers in the hospitality industry, and continuously improves working conditions.”Social dialogue and regulation of labor relations by a branch collective agreement in the hospitality industry is one of the most successful examples of cooperation between social partners at the sectoral level, and as such has a long tradition and a high level of mutual respect and relations. The first branch collective agreement of the hospitality industry was signed in May 2002, followed by its two amendments and the Collective Agreement of the hospitality industry from 2015, and as such were extended to the entire hospitality sector. “In addition to the long-term validity and contracting of the national collective agreement of catering, tourism also marks a significant share of domestic collective agreements in relation to other activities.He said on this occasion Bruno Bulić, President of the Trade Union of Istria, Kvarner and Dalmatia.Given the importance of the hospitality sector for the Croatian economy and society, and the importance of quality employment for the competitiveness of Croatian tourism, the social partners in tourism consider it necessary and justified to continue the current practice and extend the application of the Collective Agreement to the entire hospitality industry. protection of the rights of all workers and harmonization of business conditions for all entrepreneurs in the hospitality sector.Eduard Andrić, president of the Trade Union of Tourism and Services, is on that track concluded: “Only with higher wages and better working conditions can we stop the emigration of our workers and make young people interested in education in tourism. The collective agreement of the hospitality industry is also important for combating unfair competition, the gray economy and undeclared work, which is in the common interest of us unions and our partners in HUP. We also expect the support of the state, ie that the relevant Ministry of Labor will support our efforts by expanding the application of the collective agreement to all caterers in Croatia and ensure a stable business environment.” Collective bargaining in the tourism sector is conducted every year to improve efficiency and labor standards, improve the position of workers, prevent further outflow of workers and motivate quality professionals for employment in tourism in the Republic of Croatia, as a common interest of employers and workers. The quality of employment arrangements has a direct impact on human resource management and the competitiveness of the workforce, ie the competitiveness of Croatian tourism. Therefore, the regulation of labor rights and obligations through the branch collective agreement is one of the tools in the function of improving working conditions, ie a direct impact on the quality of service and competitiveness and further development of Croatian tourism.script src=”https://bs.serving-sys.com/BurstingPipe/adServer.bs?cn=rsb&c=28&pli=24629406&PluID=0&w=1280&h=500&ord=[timestamp]&ucm=true”></p>

West Florida Stuns Florida Southern in Comeback Fashion

first_imgWest Florida Stuns Florida Southern in Comeback Fashion Sept. 10, 2007Box ScoreLAKELAND, Fla. – Playing its fourth away match and its second and final match of the weekend trip, the West Florida men’s soccer (5-1-0) defeated the Florida Southern (3-2-0) in an exciting match. The Argonauts overcame adverse circumstances to past over the Mocs and improve its five matches winning streak.In the beginning of the match the Argonauts took a while to organize the team, leaving blank spaces in the field, which gave the Mocs two opportunities to score being stopped at the hands of junior Goalkeeper Juan Garcia. At around seven minutes played, the Mocs offense struck again, this time beating Garcia at the upper 90.The Argonauts seemed to be lost, and were not able to mark up the fast offenders from the Mocs when around twelve minutes they used the open spaces in the Argonauts defense and struck again with no chances to Garcia, giving the Mocs the 2-0 lead.During an injury time out from the Mocs, the pouring rain came and the Argonauts met in the middle of the field and pumped each others up. The reaction came shortly when senior midfield Keith Savage crossed to the box and found Jay Mainville freely, who did not waste his chance and shot left footed to beat the keeper and reduce the Mocs lead to 2-1.With the heavy field and the ball wet, both keepers were required to come up with a couple of saves on long distance shots. However, the Argonauts did not give the Mocs any spaces and keept the possession for longer. Even though playing with a man down after Okang Nkosi received a red car, throughout the rest of the first half the Argonauts played better soccer than the Mocs, having more chances to score, not being successful.In the second half, the Argonauts were clearly more offensive and the tied score came shortly. At 47 minutes Rafael Segal stole the ball and shot with no chances for the Mocs’ keeper, giving the Argonauts a more comfortable situation in the game.The Argonauts were putting a lot of pressure on the Mocs when finally at around 75 minutes Rafael Segal scored the third goal for the Argonauts, his second goal of the game. Mason Hupp cleared a ball in the defensive area and it ended up at Segal’s feet who just sprinted torwards the goal and beated the keeper in the breakaway, giving the Argonauts the lead for the first time in the match.”Obviously we started slow and put ourselves in a bad position early in the game, but I thought we showed a lot of maturity and character to comeback under such tough circumstances on the road” said Head coach Bill ElliotThe Argonauts held the score for the remaining 15 minutes of the match to give the Argonauts its fifth and consecutive victory of the season, being its fourth away win and second win of the weekend trip.West Florida will return to action when it next faces Eckerd University at the UWF Soccer Complex located in Pensacola, Fla.
