Guyana, US Join Efforts to Fight Narcotrafficking

admin no comments

first_imgBy Julieta Pelcastre/Diálogo November 05, 2020 The U.S. government, through U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Guyanese President Mohamed Irfaan Ali agreed on September 18, to deploy joint patrols that will operate in Caribbean airspace to disrupt drug smuggling on Guyana’s border with Venezuela.The agreement was made possible under the reactivated 2001 Shiprider program, where Guyana will designate officials as shipriders on board U.S. Navy and Coast Guard ships to be able to authorize U.S. personnel to intercept suspicious vessels and aircraft attempting to flee toward or over Guyana’s territorial sea, the Guyanese news portal Demerara Waves reported on September 16.Security cooperation “will also allow us to improve our technical and human capabilities in monitoring Guyana’s exclusive economic zone,” Ali told the U.S. Department of State. “We also look forward to continued and enhanced assistance in the fields of border control, anti-terrorism, cybersecurity, technology transfer, and anticorruption measures.”The Shiprider program follows the recent donations valued at $200,000 in equipment and repairs for vessels used in interceptions, to strengthen the Guyana Defense Force’s capabilities to patrol its territorial waters, the U.S. Department of State reported on September 16. In addition, “The United States Southern Command has provided $135,000 of personal protective equipment to the various hospitals in Georgetown and Guyana’s interior, and will continue to provide COVID-19 assistance, as needed and requested.” The anti-drug maritime security bilateral agreement took effect on September 21.Seven days before the program was approved, on September 14, Guyanese authorities located an aircraft from Venezuela that had crashed in the Issano area, in the country’s northwest, where they found one person dead and several packages containing an unspecified amount of cocaine, the Guyanese Star Nieuws website reported.“Venezuela is an area where large amounts of cocaine are accumulating, and from where [the drug] is distributed to all the countries of the world,” the Miami-based news portal PanamPost reported on September 23. “A new way to export cocaine was devised in Venezuela. Now fishing vessels do transshipment and distribute the drug in smaller vessels on the high seas.”“The Department of State has helped to train Guyana’s Port Control Unit to deter the trafficking of cocaine and other illicit goods through Guyana,” the institution said. “The United States Coast Guard provides training and mentoring to the Maritime Administration Department (MARAD) in order to improve port security. And the United States military provides training of Guyana Defense Forces personnel every year, which includes a current student at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy,” the U.S. Department of State added.“We welcome any help that would enhance our security, that would enhance our ability to protect our borders, and importantly, enhance our capability and ability to ensure that we go after criminal elements,” President Ali said during his remarks on September 18.last_img read more

MasterIndex: How do Croatian citizens see festivals and how many do they visit?

admin no comments

first_imgMastercard, in cooperation with GfK – Center for Market Research, conducted an online survey among cardholders aged 18-55 in Croatia, according to which Croatia has experienced a festival boom in the past few years, which is most often discussed in terms of the number of tourists that festivals attracts.However, so far it was not known how Croatian citizens see festivals and how many they visit. According to the results of the MasterIndex survey, which Mastercard conducted in Croatia in May, half of the respondents (52%) have visited a festival in the last two years, and these are mostly street, music and cultural festivals in the country.Croats most often visit street festivals (42%), pop music festivals (32%), rock and metal music festivals (29%), gastronomic festivals (28%), electronic music festivals (21%) and various other cultural events.Respondents from northern Croatia most often go to festivals (57% of them have been to at least one festival in the last two years) and younger ones, aged 18 to 29 (58% of them have visited at least one festival in the same period). On the other hand, festivals are seldom visited by those between the ages of 40 and 49, and among them as many as 56% of those who have not been to any festival in the past two years. However, it is the group that most visits street festivals – according to research, the most popular among Croats.When it comes to festivals abroad, 7% of respondents have visited them in the last two years. This number is slightly higher among young people between 18 and 29 years of age (10%), Istrians (12%) and those with a monthly income of more than 9.000 kuna (18%).Pop music is loved by women, the most popular electronics in Northern CroatiaPop music festivals are most popular in Dalmatia (41%) and in Lika (41%). Women prefer them (41%) – only 22% of male respondents stated that they have visited one of the pop festivals in the past two years – and they are least visited by respondents from Zagreb (24%). Rock and metal music festivals are mostly attended by men (36% of them have visited such a festival in the past two years) and more often by people from Lika, and the least by residents of Northern Croatia.Photo: Klemen Štular, ForestlandGastronomic festivals are the most attractive to respondents from the age group 30-39 (33%), Zagreb and Lika, and the least among respondents from Dalmatia (19%). Jazz and classical music festivals are most often attended by respondents with incomes above 12.000 kuna (42%) and more often by Istrians and Slavonians. Electronic music festivals are most popular among respondents from Northern Croatia (27% of them have visited such a festival in the past two years) and in Istria, Primorje and Gorski Kotar and are more popular among men, young people and respondents with higher education. Film festivals are most popular among the people of Zagreb and in Lika, Kordun and Banovina.Consumption less than 1.000 kn per festival The majority of respondents who go to festivals (52%) have visited one to three festivals in the past two years, while 59% of respondents with incomes above HRK 12.000 have visited more than 3 festivals in the same period.The main factor influencing the decision to go to the festival and the choice of events are costs (68%). At the top of the list are the selection of performers (50%), atmosphere (40%), weather conditions or the season in which the event takes place (35%) and the duration and date of the event (19%). At festivals, Croats spend the most on drinks (90%), food (75%), transport to the location (54%), souvenirs (33%), accommodation (29%) and cigarettes (24%).As many as 43% of festival visitors said that they do not need accommodation, while those who take it usually choose apartments (26%), then hotels (20%), followed by hostels (13%), camps (11%) and other options. (11%). After the end of the festival, slightly more than a third of the respondents (36%) remain at the location. This share is slightly higher among young people (45%) and those with a monthly income of more than 9.000 kuna (almost 50%). Those who continue their stay, mostly stay at the location for another day or two (74% of them).An interesting fact is that only 17% of respondents spend over 1.000 kuna per festival, not including tickets, and consumption, of course, depends on individual preferences, but also the capabilities of visitors. Consumers from Zagreb and the surrounding area (1.000%), highly educated (20%), men (21%) and those with a monthly income of over HRK 22 (12.000%) have spending to a greater extent than HRK 44 per festival. As the most common method of payment, as many as 93% of respondents state cash, while cards are the primary means of payment for respondents with incomes above HRK 9.000.Photo: Zagreb Light FestivalWe usually visit festivals with a partner or friendsAlmost two thirds of respondents (62%) go to festivals with a partner, slightly less than half (45%) with a small group of friends and approximately one in five (21%) with family. Going to the festival with a partner is more common among those between 40 and 49 years of age (71%), and with friends among young people between 18 and 29 years of age (64%). Respondents with high incomes and those from Istria, Primorje and Gorski Kotar usually travel alone.”Festivals are a pledge to achieve even better tourist results. That is why we have included the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, ULTRA Europe, Pula Film Festival, Šibenik’s Changer and Špancirfest in our Priceless Croatia platform, so that citizens and tourists can experience experiences inaccessible to others at www.priceless.com.”Said Gea Kariž, Marketing Director at Mastercard for Croatia.The global digital platform Priceless Cities offers tourist experiences to Mastercard card users in a total of 42 destinations, thus promoting the tourist offer of numerous world and now Croatian destinations among travelers from 87 countries around the world. Apart from tourists, the experiences are also available to local residents, and the opportunities offered by Priceless Croatia relate to gastronomic, cultural and entertainment facilities that allow users to experience the country in a completely new and unique way.last_img read more

Powered by Firework 6th January 2020 marked a dark day for the world of sports as NBA superstar and Basketball icon Kobe Bryant passed away after a tragic helicopter accident, along with his daughter Gianna. While the world mourns the unfortunate demise of the legend, India’s cricketing icon Virat Kohli pours his heart out on the mishap, and talks about the lessons he gained from it.Advertisement Image Courtesy: NBC/BCCIWhile Team India is preparing for the 3 match ODI series against New Zealand, captain Virat Kohli spoke in a recent interview today in Hamilton, lamenting the sad incident, and also unveiled his young memories of being a regular follower of basketball, and idolising Kobe in different aspects.“Firstly, it was a shock to everyone. I grew up watching those NBA games in the morning and watching what he did on court. But when someone that you have looked up to in some ways, passes away like that, it does put things in perspective,” Kohli told interviewers.Advertisement After the unfortunate event, Kohli paid tribute to the Lakers hall of fame on his official Instagram, where he also stated about being a Kobe fan and a regular NBA watcher in his childhood.Since taking the helm of Team India back in 2013, Kohli has been under stress from tough opposition or even a hectic schedule, like he recently complained about the short gap between the Australia ODI series and the recently concluded T20 series against New Zealand.However, the 31 year old continues that Kobe’s incident has made him realise to have a good time instead of getting caught up in the routine stress: “At the end of the day, life can be so fickle. It’s so unpredictable. I think a lot of the times we get too caught up in the pressures of what we have to do tomorrow…we really forget living life and enjoying life and just appreciating and being grateful for the life we have.”Kobe, who is a five time NBA championship winner and two time Olympic gold medalist, was on board in a helicopter along with his daughter Gigi and 7 other occupants, which crashed crashed in Orange Country, California. The Men in Blue skipper also said that the incident has changed the way he looked at life, now relishing and welcoming each moment of it.“You start looking at things from a different point of view suddenly and you want to enjoy every moment you’re going through. You realise that what you’re doing at the end of the day is not the most important thing. The most important thing is life itself” he added.Also read-Indian cricket mourns the passing of NBA legend Kobe BryantWatch: Shaquille O’Neal breaks down in tears recollecting his favourite Kobe Bryant moments Advertisementlast_img read more

Pastor Stuns Community with Mater Dei Prep Closure

admin no comments

first_imgBy John BurtonMIDDLETOWN – A startling announcement this week is marking the end of an era, as Mater Dei Prep High School announced its plans to shutter its doors in June.The Rev. Jeff Kegley, pastor of the St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Parish, posted a letter on the school’s website announcing its closure and referred all inquiries there.Mater Dei Prep, 538 Church St., in the township’s New Monmouth section, “has been running large financial deficits and enrollment numbers have not stabilized to the point of sufficiently supporting the school’s viability,” and it was his and the parish finance council’s hope that trend could be reversed. Kegley said in his announcement, however, the 2014-15 projected loss for the school is close to $1 million.“Our parish and diocesan assistance, fundraising and tuition can no longer meet the school’s financial obligation,” Kegley acknowledged.The school, which has been operating for 50 years and boasted the largest incoming freshman class in a decade this September, will close at the end of the current school year.The closure is not expected to affect current school operations. “Classes and activities will continue until the end of June as planned,” Kegley said.There are currently 340 students from 20 area communities attending Mater Dei, which employs 48 faculty and staff.St. Mary Elementary School, located next to the high school, will continue operations as will St. Mary, Mother of God Church.The elementary school has 680 students enrolled and is the largest Catholic elementary school in Monmouth and Ocean counties.The Diocese of Trenton’s Department of Catholic Education is expected to offer Mater Dei families information about area Catholic schools, Kegley said.Kegley did not return a phone call seeking comment by press time on Wednesday.The diocese department of education did not offer a statement from Bishop David M. O’Connell on Wednesday, as the bishop was recovering from recent surgery, according to Rayanne Bennett. But, Bennett said, the local pastor was responsible for the decision in consultation with the parish council and the bishop.Diocese offices were referring callers to the school’s website, which has Kegley’s letter.“It’s a sad day for all of us,” said Robert Abetamarco, principal of Red Bank Catholic High School, Red Bank. “When you lose a school with that kind of tradition, storied past, it’s just such a sad thing.Abetamarco was scheduled on Wednesday afternoon to participate in a conference call with diocese representatives and those from other area Catholic schools to discuss “ways to help facilitate these families in their transition and continue their Catholic education,” he said.“I am sure I speak for everybody when I say we’ll do all that we can to make them feel welcome wherever they go,” Abetamarco said.Brother Frank Burns, president of Christian Brothers Academy, an all-boys Catholic school, Lincroft, said on Wednesday about Mater Dei’s efforts, “I know they were putting their best efforts into keeping the school going,” he learned from his conversations with that school’s officials. “I know they were trying to make a go of it.”He, like Abetamarco, offered his support in assisting families, as much as he could.“Anything we can do, we will,” he said. But, Burns said registration for the incoming freshman class is at capacity and there is a waiting list of 60 students and “We have to honor our commitment to them,” he said.For parents and students, it was shock and anger over not only the message, but also the way the message was delivered.“We don’t understand the suddenness and timing of it,” said Tinton Falls resident Elizabeth Wulfhorst, whose daughter Emma is a junior at Mater Dei. “Why wasn’t there a plan in place to graduate the existing students?’Wulfhorst said she was “blindsided” by the abrupt delivery of the end.Parents on Tuesday received a phone blast message directing them to an important message on the school’s website, said parent Jean Zeuschner. “I think it was very poor communication and delivery.”“It just kind of came out of nowhere,” observed sophomore Kayla Greiss, Union Beach, speaking of the news. “None of us saw this coming.“Everyone is pretty upset; everyone is heartbroken,” Greiss said.With reporting contributions by Christina Johnson and Muriel Smithlast_img read more
