Costa Rica and Panama Agree to Work Together against Organized Crime

first_imgIn 2014, Costa Rican law enforcement authorities confiscated nearly 22 tons of cocaine and almost $7.3 million in cash; and between January 1 and April 9, Costa Rican security forces seized nearly 3 tons of cocaine. Most of the drugs were intercepted at sea or at Costa Rica’s post at Peñas Blancas, on the Northern Border, about 310 kilometers northwest of San José, the country’s capital. Joint pact between Costa Rica and U.S. yields results The September gathering will be one of a series of follow-up meetings officials from both countries have scheduled, Andrade said during a separate interview with Diálogo. These meetings will be held every six months, alternating between both countries. The first was scheduled to occur in April in the southern Costa Rican border city of Ciudad Neily, to fine-tune the issues of border control, information exchange, intelligence sharing, and combined land action. As part of the ongoing cooperation, Mata is preparing to visit U.S. Border Patrol’s installations in Texas. Honduran Security Minister General Julián Pacheco was among the officials who discussed these issues during the February bilateral meeting.

PR Insight: 3 lessons CUs can learn from Apple’s Credit Card launch

first_img continue reading » Speculation had been long brewing in the financial services industry about when—not if—Apple would enter the payments space with its own products, and what that would mean for the industry. Apple officially threw its hat in the ring on March 25 with the launch of a company-branded credit card, Apple Card. Interestingly, the promotional branding around Apple Card ties back to one key theme—“Created by Apple, not a bank.”Time will tell whether Apple’s venture into consumer financial services is a successful move, but there are three main attributes of the announcement that credit unions can learn from today.1. Brand LoyaltyApple has a strong following of loyal users and a hold on the U.S. market, with nearly 45% of Americans using an iPhone in 2018, according to Statista.com. Apple is trying to leverage this loyalty through its card branding and marketing, starting with the name itself: It’s not a credit card, it’s an Apple card.

Children share nude pictures online

first_imgStuff co.nz 15 November 2014Parents need to be aware that primary school-aged children are using social media sites to share naked images of themselves, an internet watchdog says.Netsafe co-launched a guide yesterday to help parents understand the popular online photo-sharing application Instagram.Netsafe’s Lee Chisholm said a primary school had reported concerns about children posting on Instagram naked photos of themselves, which had been viewed by other pupils.“We gave advice to the school about what they could and couldn’t do with the image and suggested talking to the parents about what was going on and reported the photo so it got taken down.”Parents did not need to know every detail of how Instagram worked, but did need to set boundaries for their children. “You don’t have to join Instagram to deal with the challenges of it.”Netsafe had also been contacted by upset Muslim parents who had found photos on Instagram of their daughters without their headscarves. “The high school-aged girls thought they had posted the photo in a private setting, but the family had found them and were upset.”http://www.stuff.co.nz/technology/digital-living/63226015/children-share-nude-pictures-online.htmllast_img read more

UCL: Ronaldo’s two goals fail to save Juve from exit

first_imgCristiano Ronaldo’s brace failed to see Juventus through against Lyon, as Manchester City capitalised on two Raphael Varane errors as they made it through to the Champions League quarter-finals with a 2-1 win over Real Madrid at the Etihad (4-2 on aggregate). The hosts added to their first-leg advantage early on as a lackadaisical Varane was caught in possession on his own byline by Gabriel Jesus, who squared for Raheem Sterling to tap home for his 100th Manchester City goal (9). It didn’t change much for Real, still needing two away goals to qualify, and they got a first through Karim Benzema’s header from a Rodrygo cross (28). But it was chaos in the second period as Real continued to mess around with the ball deep in their half, and City eventually killed the tie off as Jesus nipped in to capitalise on a weak Varane header to brilliantly poke home from an angle (68). Pep Guardiola’s City, chasing that elusive first Champions League crown, will now travel to Lisbon for the single-leg quarter-final against Lyon, on August 15. La Liga champions Real hadn’t played a competitive game since July 17, and it showed in the first half with some of the most casual possession seen in European competition this season.Advertisement Loading… Without captain and talisman Sergio Ramos, who was suspended having been sent off in the first leg, Real were poor defensively throughout. Varane dawdled on the ball early on at the touchline, allowing Jesus to rob him, before squaring for Sterling to simply tap home from 10 yards with just Real defender Dani Carvajal on the line. Meanwhile, Ronaldo’s two goals inspired Juventus to a 2-1 comeback victory over Lyon but it wasn’t enough as a 2-2 aggregate draw saw them crash out of the Champions League on away goals. read also:PSG prefer Mbappe, Neymar extensions over Ronaldo move Trailing 1-0 from the first leg – which took place 163 days ago – recently-crowned Serie A champions Juve found themselves needing to score three goals after Memphis Depay’s nonchalant 12th-minute penalty. Ronaldo reduced the arrears two minutes before the break with a penalty of his own and gave Juventus further hope when he rocketed his 130th Champions League goal into the top corner on the hour.

Koeman hails style and substance

first_img The Saints, who had beaten Millwall away in the Capital One Cup earlier in the week, produced a slick display to come from behind and run out 3-1 victors at Upton Park with a brace from French midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin. It could have been easy for Koeman’s side – much changed from the one sent out by Mauricio Pochettino last season following a string of summer departures – to abandon their pass-and-move approach when falling behind to Mark Noble’s deflected 25-yard effort and go more direct in search of a way back into the match. While the Saints will now head into the international break in positive mood, West Ham are left with a fortnight to digest what was an abject display. Irons boss Sam Allardyce – again the focal point of fans’ frustrations as he was in the midweek cup penalty shoot-out defeat to Sheffield United – hopes the defeat will serve as a “wake-up call” for the players in the challenges ahead. West Ham announced the loan signing of Cameroon international Alex Song from Barcelona before kick-off, and Allardyce hopes the former Arsenal midfield enforcer can help move his team forwards. “It should make us better, so I hope he can get straight in there and inspire us to play more like we did against Crystal Palace and Tottenham and less like we did against Southampton,” Allardyce said. “Song is a massively talented player, but the others have to play their best to play with him and he will definitely add something to us.” Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has vowed to keep trying to win games with style rather than simply grinding out results after recording his first Barclays Premier League victory at West Ham. Press Association Dutchman Koeman, though, feels Southampton are starting to see the rewards for such a positive mindset. Schneiderlin equalised on the stroke of half-time when converting a free-kick at the back post before putting the visitors into the lead just after the hour, again from close range following a set-piece, and £8million forward Graziano Pelle secured the points with eight minutes left – which saw hundreds of disgruntled West Ham fans head for an early exit. “We train very differently from last season – less physical exercise and more football, more positioning exercises and we showed that in the last 15 minutes at West Ham. That is the way I like to play,” said Koeman, the former Feyenoord coach. “I know we have to run and fight, but winning games is about trying to do that in a football way and we have the players for that. “It was very important to win before the international break because now we have four points and we needed that. “We hope that they will all come back in a good physical shape to continue what we have done up until now.” Schneiderlin has started all three league games so far, with Southampton insisting the midfielder is not for sale, having been strongly linked with a switch to join Pochettino at Tottenham. On Saturday evening, the midfielder gave an interview with Saints’ internal media channel insisting he wanted to focus on his game, but stopped short of committing his future to the club ahead of the September 1 deadline. last_img read more

Pellegrini unfazed by defeat

first_img Pellegrini stressed it is too early to talk about who will win the title and said his side will just carry on in the manner which saw them hunt down both Liverpool and Chelsea over the run-in last season. “The pressure is to win the title, the pressure is to retain the title. My pressure, I think, is the best pressure for me,” the Chilean said. “We are in the third position of the table in this moment. We must continue playing as champions. “Nothing happened (was decided) today (at West Ham), in a game where we had four, five clear chances to score.” Pellegrini believes his side face no different challenges this season, despite the fact that they represent an even bigger scalp now they are defending champions. “It is always hard to play in the Premier League,” he said. “To defend the title, to try to win the title it is always very hard because all the games are very tough. “We must continue working in the same way we are doing in the last year-and-a-half. “At this moment we are defending better than at the same moment last season, but I think we must improve because we are conceding in this game one or two goals, which I think is too much. “When I am talking about defence, I am talking about the whole team, I am not talking about one individual player.” While Pellegrini maintains no-one can “know what will happen in the future”, the City boss admits Chelsea look “very strong”. “We have 87 points more (to play for) to try and continue adding more points to our team,” Pellegrini said. “It is not only Chelsea, (but also) Arsenal, so we will see what they do in the future. “At the final (game), the team that wins more points will be the champion.” In the meantime Pellegrini intends to focus fully on the Newcastle cup tie rather than next weekend’s Manchester showdown. “We are first thinking about Newcastle on Wednesday. When we finish Newcastle, we think about Man United,” he added. Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini insists his side can handle the pressure of trying to sustain a successful defence of their Barclays Premier League crown. Press Association City slipped to third after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at West Ham, but they are only six points off leaders Chelsea after Robin van Persie’s dramatic stoppage time equaliser earned Manchester United a 1-1 draw against them on Sunday. After a midweek Capital One Cup tie against Newcastle, City will host rivals United next in the league at the Etihad Stadium. last_img read more
