Costa Rican biker protest ends without agreement

first_imgRelated posts:Tico motorists to pay 12 percent more for vehicle circulation permits Costa Rican officials agree ‘to study’ bikers’ demands after another day of protest Deadline to pay marchamo ends at midnight Monday Marchamo Conflict May Reach World Trade Organization Hundreds of motorcyclists rallied on Wednesday outside the National Insurance Institute (INS) in San José to fight against an increase in mandatory circulation permit costs – known as themarchamo. But the protest ended in stalemate after INS President Guillermo Constenla refused to budge on the issue.Bikers are angered over a 24 percent increase in the cost of marchamos for motorcycle owners. Eugenio Badilla, coordinator of the Civic Committee of Motorcyclists, said his group doesn’t oppose a marchamo rate hike, but he considers this year’s increase “excessive,” adding that, “we won’t accept it.”Representatives of the bikers’ group met with Constenla at noon on Wednesday. But the INS official said a modification to marchamo pricing would have to be discussed by the Legislative Assembly, the Finance Ministry and the Roadway Safety Council (Cosevi).Albino Vargas, president of the National Association of Public and Private Employees, and Rafael Mora, legal advisor to the motorcyclists, also attended the meeting.Vargas said shortly after 2 p.m. that “negotiations at the time have broken down because there is no political will.” He called for the creation of a high-level committee with representatives from INS, Casa Presidencial, the Finance Ministry and Cosevi.One protester, Álvaro Valverde, called this year’s marchamo increase “an abuse of power, because now motorcycle owners have to pay higher taxes than buses or trucks.”Earlier this month, Constenla said the increase was due to an adjustment in insurance coverage policies. He added that since 2011, marchamo fees have not covered medical expenses for accidents, particularly for motorcycle drivers.Police officers kept watch over the rally, but bikers moved their protest to La Hispanidad roundabout, east of San José.

Tussling for tuna Costa Rican fishermen want more access to a local

first_imgRobert Nunes is a commercial fisherman who actively defends his peers in Costa Rica’s commercial fishing industry. He volunteers a lot of his time with Mauricio Gonzalez, director of the Camera de Palangreros (or the chamber of longliners) traveling the country lobbying for fisherman’s rights.Longlining is a type of fishing that boats set miles of hooks across the ocean and is not selective in what type of fish takes the bait placed on a hook. This has caused grief among many different groups who support, sharks, marlin, and sailfish that some people consider bycatch to a longline boat. The longline sector does not consider these species bycatch as the total catch is utilized and nothing gets wasted.But Nunes is an innovator and found a way to specifically target tuna with less than one percent bycatch. One of first to outfit his commercial boats with greenstick, an art of fishing that targets tuna and rarely catches anything but tuna. Robert Nunes (Photo courtesy of Changing Seas)Tuna are able to see what’s happening above the water and greenstick fishing uses lures that skip along the surface, so greenstick fishermen rarely catch anything besides tuna.Nunes has a six-boat operation. He fishes greenstick whenever possible and catches about 80 tons of tuna a year. That still only makes up for 40 percent of his catch though. Lots of times, tuna isn’t available so he longlines for dorado, which can catch sharks and billfish. Gonzalez, the director of the chamber of longliners, is not opposed to using greenstick, but for him, it’s a matter of cost.“We would love to fish greenstick a lot more,” says Gonzalez “If we had access to the [tuna]. We don’t have a lot of interest in many other species, but we need to make a living.”Costa Rica has rich fisheries, but every year, thousands of tons of tuna are fished by foreign vessels. While local fishermen face high costs, those from other countries extract Costa Rican tuna for pennies on the dollar.“It costs us as Costa Rican fishermen a lot more than foreign tuna boats to extract tuna from the ocean,” Nunes said.  To extract 80 tons of tuna, Nunes says he paid the government $46,178 in fees for licenses, social security, INS insurance, and taxes or $1.73 per kilo of tuna extracted from Costa Rican waters.“If you add the salaries of my employees on the boats which is part of the costs to access the resource it is over $157,000 per year,” Nunes said. That’s almost 200 times more than what the country makes off of foreign vessels.Costa Rica sells a license to a foreign boat for $54 per net ton of that vessel’s capacity. If that boat sells 300 metric tons to the cannery in Puntarenas it receives the next license gratis. The system is perpetual. In 2018 Costa Rica issued 12 tuna licenses to fishing boats called purse seiners. Four were paid for and the rest were given away for free. All the boats were flagged from either Nicaragua or Venezuela. They reported a total catch of 8,422 tons of tuna. In total Costa Rica collected $153,264.48 in fees. That means Costa Rica had a benefit of just under 2 cents or 11 colones for every kilo of tuna extracted from Costa Rican waters.Gonzalez says purse seiners are also a local fishermen’s biggest nemesis. A purse seiner set ontop of dolphins to catch the tuna below The Tico Times archivesPurse seiners surround schools of fish with up to several kilometers of net. The net is pulled in from the bottom and everything caught in the net’s radius is hauled into the boat. This type of fishing is highly regulated due to the amount of fish and bycatch a single boat is capable of producing.In the Americas, the Inter American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC) allots each member country a quota of tuna it can catch with purse seiners. The IATTC allots Costa Rica around 9,000 tonnes a year, but we catch none of it.Costa Rica does not have any purse seine boats of its own and sells its quota to foreign flagged vessels. The system in place is outdated and Costa Rica benefits next to nothing by them being here.We have a lot to gain from the leaving though. As of 2014, purse seine boats can no longer work within 45 miles of Costa Rica’s shore and the sport fishing sector has seen a giant recovery in tuna. We’ve also seen more marlin and dorado which are often discarded bycatch by tuna boats.By studying bycatch records from observers on board tuna boats in 2017, FECOP found that 25 tons of what would have been marlin bycatch were saved by reducing the area they fish. One purse seiner has the capacity to catch as much tuna in one trip as the entire commercial fleet of 300 longlines catches in one year. “If there were more of the resource available to Costa Rican fishermen, we would target tuna. It is the fish that pays most at the market,” explained Nunes. “If you add the money generated by the sport fishing fleet for Costa Rica into the figures it is much more when you look at the whole picture.”The benefit of giving tuna back to Costa Ricans would have a domino effect. Better living conditions for coastal families, less pressure on controversial species and more fish for the sport fishing sector as well. It would also place another star on Costa Rica’s reputation for taking care of nature.Todd Staley has run fishing sport operations on both coasts of Costa Rica for over 25 years. He recently decided to take some time off to devote full-time to marine conservation and is the communications director at FECOP.

France sees growth of international domestic tourist numbers

first_imgThe summer season has been rather good for tourism in France, where it showed an overall increase in tourist numbers. The amount of visitors arriving in the country is expected to be no less than that of summer 2014. Though, the data also indicated that more and more domestic travellers are exploring their homeland.As per the first wave of a cyclical survey, conducted by the Tourism Offices of France, Rn2D, ANMSM and Atout France, the number of French tourists travelling around their home country is likely to increase during the summer of 2015, along with the number of foreign visitors.The survey noted a “good general dynamic” for the start of the season between April 15 and June 15, 2015. It is “particularly characterised by the French clientele”.The tourist numbers are usually higher than that of the same period last year, particularly on Brittany’s, Norman’s and Northerner’s coasts and in many provincial cities, as well as the whole of the South East, where the service providers reported an increase in the amount of bookings.Travellers from Britain remained the principal group among all the international tourists coming to France. They are followed by the Belgians, the Dutch, the Germans and the Italians. Other visitors such as the Russians, the Canadians, the Chinese and the Japanese are on the rise as well.last_img read more

I mean soccer is a great game, but we play this one in the trenches and I want to see our offensive line and defensive line, and I think we can become pretty good, pretty quickly.” It marks the official start of training camp; and the players can’t participate in training camp until they pass the test which consists of a 300-yard shuttle run (50-yard intervals) to be covered in 70 seconds. “Extremely pleased, saw everything I needed to see,” said head coach Bruce Arians, who noted he stopped the run early after each player ran the drill twice.“He gave us a little break. He took it fairly easy on us,” linebacker Daryl Washington said.“Don’t need to see them run anymore in shorts. Obviously, they’re in really good shape and ready to go,” explained Arians.The Cardinals had not been together since mid-June, but each player in attendance passed the test. Rookies Jonathan Cooper (unsigned) and Ryan Swope (concussion questions) were absent Thursday.“Shows that people actually worked in the five, six weeks that we’ve had off,” center Lyle Sendlein said.Of course, this year’s run test took place inside an air-conditioned stadium as opposed to outside in the nearly 7,000-foot elevation of Flagstaff, the Cardinals’ previous training camp home.“I don’t know,” Sendlein said. “Us big guys and running don’t mix well no matter how high in the air you are. We did what we had to do.” GLENDALE — Much has changed since the whistle blew on the Arizona Cardinals’ 2012 season.

Medical silence starts to crack as court awards €100000 in damages

first_imgBy Angelos AnastasiouDESPITE inherent difficulties in suing for medical negligence, a Larnaca court has ruled that doctors and nursing staff at the town’s general hospital did not exercise due care in diagnosing and treating a woman in 2004, causing her to undergo avoidable leg amputation shortly thereafter.This has once again brings to the limelight the unspoken rule of medical professionals not being too forthcoming to testify against colleagues, making it extremely rare for such cases as the Larnaca ruling, to come to court, let alone reach the stage of reward for compensation.The court awarded the woman’s son, who sued the Cyprus Republic over his mother’s treatment by the public healthcare facility’s staff, approximately €100,000 in damages.According to the ruling, Larnaca General doctors treated the woman’s stroke but were too late to diagnose a leg embolism, despite obvious external markers – her leg had already gone black – and the son alerting the doctors of the issue when the woman was admitted.But negligence in this case was exhibited not only by doctors, the judge said. In the ruling, he argued that Larnaca General nursing staff also failed to act with due care as the woman developed sores due to insufficient turning and positioning – recommended treatment for immobile patients.Nurses were also said to have decided that the woman should have been fed orally while comatose, instead of employing the designated nasogastric intubation procedure, which caused her to develop pneumonia as a result of food particles entering the patient’s lungs.Negligence lawsuits against healthcare professionals rank among the hardest to bring before a court successfully. The unwillingness of many doctors to testify against their defendant colleagues has been widely pointed at as the most common insurmountable problem, by lawyers and healthcare professionals alike.Dr Marios Philippou heads the Cyprus Medical Council, the state body responsible for accrediting professional medical credentials. He told the Cyprus Mail that doctors are free to offer expert testimony in court if they so choose, and that no such code of silence exists – unofficial or otherwise.Philippou’s opinion is not shared by many. Maria Constantinidou of the Constantion Criminology and Forensic Research Centre cited recent data collected from a variety of sources, including insurance companies, law offices and proprietary research. The research conclusions, published earlier in the summer, suggest that the most common reason for the failure of such cases to be built successfully lies in the reluctance of doctors to testify against their colleagues.The research findings appear to be implicitly corroborated by the medical profession’s official representatives. Last June, the Cyprus Medical Association (CyMA) issued a press release making its views on medical negligence public, which it signed off with a plea for doctors to testify in good faith whenever called on.“We call on doctors, whose primary duty is to serve patients and protect their health, to overcome the valid, legitimate and natural sentiments of collegial solidarity, and testify their expertise honestly, ethically and professionally, where allegations of medical error or negligence are examined,” the statement said.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
