first_img Praise from the President By Dialogo November 03, 2014 While Unaps and FUSINA agents are rescuing abduction victims and kidnapping suspects, World Cup soccer player Wilson Palacios is participating in “Conffe vs. Gangs,” an initiative to discourage young Hondurans from joining organized crime groups. “We want them to get involved in sports, soccer and for them to learn to study so that young people can keep away from crime,” Palacios said. But those organizations have had to contend with the combined skill of Honduran security forces. For instance, since FUSINA went into action in February, agents with the elite unit have captured more than 1,800 criminal suspects, including individuals wanted for kidnapping, extortion, homicide and other offenses. FUSINA has dismantled at least 41 criminal extortion gangs, some of which engaged in kidnapping for ransom. Coordination between Honduran security forces, including the military and the National Police, and cooperation from Colombian and the United States, which have provided training and intelligence, has helped Unaps and FUSINA carry out successful operations against kidnappers. Street gangs like Los Corrales, Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) and Barrio 18 (M-18) are among the criminal groups that engage in kidnapping in Honduras. Some large drug trafficking organizations also commit abductions for ransom. Palacios and his family were devastated by a kidnapping in 2007, when gang members kidnapped his younger brother, Edwin, who was 14, from the family home in Honduras. Law enforcement authorities found Edwin’s body 19 months later.

FUSINA has dismantled at least 41 criminal extortion gangs, some of which engaged in kidnapping for ransom. FUSINA is one of those capacities. President Hernández created FUSINA to aggressively confront international drug traffickers and organized crime groups, many of which engage in extortion. It is comprised of 4,400 members of the Armed Forces, the National Police, and the Public Ministry. Police and military intelligence officers are also part of FUSINA. The elite unit began operating in February, one month after Hernández was sworn in as president. While Unaps and FUSINA agents are rescuing abduction victims and kidnapping suspects, World Cup soccer player Wilson Palacios is participating in “Conffe vs. Gangs,” an initiative to discourage young Hondurans from joining organized crime groups. “We now have the tools that we previously lacked” to fight gangs, drug trafficking groups, and crime in general, President Juan Orlando Hernández said in a La Prensa article published September 29. Praise from the President “Honduras has put in place significant capacities to confront the kidnapping groups, these capacities have been supported by the governments of Colombia and the US,” said Armando Rodríguez Luna, a security analyst at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). “We want them to get involved in sports, soccer and for them to learn to study so that young people can keep away from crime,” Palacios said.

The combined efforts of an elite team of Honduran Army soldiers, National Police agents, and the National Interagency Security Force have made a significant impact on abductions by street gangs and drug trafficking organizations. Kidnappings have dropped 20 percent during the first half of 2014 compared to the same time period last year. And among the kidnappings that have taken place, many have ended in daring rescues by Honduran security forces. For example, in March, agents with Unaps – part of the Honduran National Police – worked with Army soldiers and Choluteca police to rescue a 21-year-old man who had been abducted, allegedly by a gang known as Los Corrales. They also captured five men who are alleged to have conducted the kidnapping and demanded nearly US $245 thousand in ransom. Initiatives of this type can be effective. These kinds of programs seek to get young people involved in programs not only for sports development but also to develop teamwork. “Honduras has put in place significant capacities to confront the kidnapping groups, these capacities have been supported by the governments of Colombia and the US,” said Armando Rodríguez Luna, a security analyst at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).

YOU LOOK FOR SUPPORT AND DON’T FIND IT WITH SOME POLITICIANS… IN OTHER WORDS THE YOUNG PEOPLE IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD WE CARRY A SPORTS UNIFORM SO THEY CAN PLAY SOCCER I HAVEN’T BEEN ABLE TO GET IT…SO WE’LL CONTINUE FIGHTING TO GET IT FOR THE GOOD OF THESE BOYS…GOD CONTINUE TO ENLIGHTEN THEM AND PROTECT THEM FOR THE GOOD OF THIS COUNTRY. Hi.Yes, I.like.itA lot All those little guys are a bunch of corrupt men Why has it taken you so long to present such relevant news…why wasn’t it mentioned before, why don’t you mention true heroes, who gave their all for all, in the institution? And they weren’t given what they deserve, but God in heaven will. You know what they’re doing as of now…they’re being chased, they’re accused in order to justify a charge against them, such is the case with Mr. Fusina. God protect us, with the executions being carried out by the President of Honduras, I am sorry I gave him my vote, it’s a deception. God give him much wisdom…and one day he’ll answer to the Sovereign God…and he will be judged by his works. God have mercy. Give them a 100 year prison sentence Hi, the efforts made for security in Honduras are important thanks to the Military Police. I like the [unintelligible] of our Honduran armed forces We thank God for putting into the hearts of the authorities keeping the police and other entities they have created pure to protect the citizenry which trusts them.Those of us who believe in God and who do his will pray for all the men and women who sirve with all their strength and even with their lives to enforce the country’s laws which allow us to live in peace and harmony as well as in peace and security. Very good day, publication, if you were embargoed by Honduras, publish printed information without publishing photos of dead bodies. When two people are doing the same thing, one of the two is in excess. Why not define it for once and for all? Military police or national police? So much of the budget is spent on questions of security (which isn’t bad) as long as there are concrete results. But the figures are the same, as reflected in the cemeteries. More people die in Honduras than in a country at war. It gives me chills, really, to live in this country. Let us learn to live, to be tolerant, let us respect others’ differences en every sense, let us be in solidarity, and please, politicians, get to work and stop looting the country. Gob Bless Honduras and those who lead it.

first_imgLAFD reported that the Tick Fire in Santa Clarita threatened 10,000 residents and covered 4,615 acres.  (Photo from Twitter / L.A. County Fire Department) “Safety is our foremost concern, so please coordinate with your department or unit to discuss class cancellations or allow for working remotely if need be,” Miller wrote.  While USC is not in close proximity to any of the fires devastating L.A., students, faculty and staff from the surrounding area have felt its effects. Monday Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences Dean Amber Miller told students in an email expressing her support for students affected by the fires that she and her family were awakened by smoke and had to evacuate their home early that morning.   “I am from the Central Valley [and] we get a lot of the debris from the fires whether they are happening up north or down south,” said Audra Magness, a sophomore majoring in theatre. “Just this weekend, I was traveling from Fresno back to Los Angeles and the entire grapevine was so bogged down by smoke.” Students at Mount Saint Mary’s University evacuated their Brentwood campus. Local colleges such as Santa Monica College and UCLA canceled classes Monday.  Magness says she is more worried now that the fires have reached L.A. and hopes that they will be able to control it before it begins to affect urban parts of the city.  She believes that USC should take several actions to ensure that students are safe, including providing free masks at the health center and issuing periodic updates about the fire to help students stay up-to-date.  Emails from deans also listed services offered by USC to those affected by the fires or looking for a place to stay after evacuating their homes, such as Campus Support & Intervention, Trojans Care 4 Trojans and various counseling services. “We were lucky enough to have family in the area, so we had a place to go, and our family is safe,” Miller wrote. “Many in our USC Dornsife community affected by the Getty Fire may not be as lucky as we are. If you are in need of help, please know that your USC Dornsife family has your back, and we fully support whatever measures you need to take to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.” While fires in California are common, the power outages this year have worsened the situation for families in affected areas. Pacific Gas and Electric, Southern California Edison and San Diego Gas & Electric have been shutting off power for thousands of residents across California in an effort to prevent fires. However, these companies have failed to inform residents of planned blackouts and have sparked controversial backlash from those concerned with a lack of power in disaster areas. “I just think I want to understand better why PG&E must shut down power due to these fires because they’ve gotten into a lot of trouble for being the instigator of these fires,” Yang said. “If anything its causing more inconvenience and problems … but also the fires are still happening.” “I think it’s pretty scary that it’s reaching L.A. proper because normally it’s contained or farther away from the center of the city,” Magness said. “Now that it’s … [close to] UCLA, I feel like they will get it under control but [in] the city, everything is so close together — as soon as one thing catches fire, I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of other things, in turn, set ablaze and it’s a big tragedy if that happens.” She mentions how her family had to cancel a trip to Napa Valley in November due to the raging wildfires and wonders why PG&E has to cut off the power supply. The Kincade Fire in Sonoma County has spread to more than 74,000 acres and was only 15% contained at time of publication. However, UCLA cancelled classes in 2017 after poor air quality resulting from similar fires caused concerns among the university community. The fires have resulted in the closure of several major freeways in L.A, including the 405 Freeway near the Getty Center, where a brush fire continues to burn through more than 600 acres with 5% containment at time of publication. Dozens of schools and universities in the city are closed until further notice due to hazardous air quality and their proximity to the fires.  “I don’t think I’ve ever really had like to experience power outages,” said Florence Yang, a sophomore majoring in computer science. “I don’t know what people are supposed to do back at home because if you go inside, there’s no power there, but if you go outside, the air is bad.”  Strong Santa Ana winds brought raging fires to Los Angeles this past weekend. As the Getty, Saddleridge and Tick fires continue to burn throughout the city, causing thousands to evacuate, the USC community has felt the impacts of the devastation. According to the Times, the Getty and Kincade fires have smoke advisory warnings that have been issued in affected areas and “very unhealthy” air quality is widespread — from Northern California to the San Fernando Valley. Audra Magness, a sophomore majoring in theatre, went to Fresno over the weekend and saw a lot of the smoke while returning to L.A. Sunday. She said her hometown is affected by fires every year and has dealt with poor air quality.  A similar email of support was sent from Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism Dean Willow Bay Monday and Price School of Public Policy Dean Jack Knott. Melody Yao, a sophomore majoring in economics-mathematics, said while she is not directly affected by the fire, she remembers her high school in Northern California canceling classes for several days due to previous fires. last_img read more

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (May 23, 2015)–Longshot Neveradoubt unleashed a furious stretch rally under Flavien Prat to take Saturday’s $200,000 Snow Chief Stakes by a half length while covering 1 1/8 miles on turf in 1:51.26. Trained by Mike Puype and owned by SLO Racing Stable, Tom Hudson and Tony Narducci, the 3-year-old colt by Decarchy lagged early and angled five wide turning for home in what was only his fourth career start. (Run as Santa Anita’s eighth race, the Snow Chief is part of the Golden State Series, which is restricted to horses bred or sired in California).Off at 41-1 in a field of eleven 3-year-olds, Neveradoubt paid $85.40, $30.60 and $13.40. A first-out maiden winner going 6 ½ furlongs versus statebreds Nov. 16 at Del Mar, Neveradoubt got his second win and with top prize money of $110,000, hiked his bankroll to $151,350.“Puype was pretty confident before the race,” said Prat. “I didn’t know this horse but the pace helped him a lot and the track was little bit soft and that helped as well. The pace was pretty fast so that’s good when you’re behind (ninth past the five furlong pole). He doesn’t look like he’s got a turn of foot, but he’s got one pace. I didn’t think I would win, but I thought we would be close, third or second…He won pretty easy today.”“Flavien rode a great race and saved a lot of ground,” said Puype. “Tom Hudson, who manages the horse, wanted to go in the race. Tom said ‘He should go the distance. He’s doing good.’ But Flavien Prat rode the race and it was a great ride. We just took a shot he could cover the distance.”Fellow longshot Temple Keys, who was last early under Drayden Van Dyke, followed the winner through the lane and finished second, a half length in front of Grazen Sky, who flew for the show. Off at 29-1, Temple Keys paid $22.20 and $11.20.Ridden by Rafael Bejarano, Grazen Sky, who was the second choice in the tote at 5-2, flew late for third money and paid $3.60 to show.Fractions on the race were 22.67, 46.93, 1:12.36 and 1:38.47.last_img read more

first_imgYahoo’s new logo will debut next week, and in an effort to drum up excitement, the Web-media giant has been running a “30 days of change” campaign, featuring a new logo on Yahoo’s homepage and other properties every day in the runup to the unveiling Sep. 5.But as it turns out, users aren’t that excited about another change.A poll launched by the startup Polar shows that of the 24 logos showcased so far, just one logo is more favored than Yahoo’s longtime logo, which replaced its original one in 1995. Over 84,000 votes have been collected from users wanting to voice their opinion of the redesign. Day 10’s logo (pictured) was the only one that garnered enough votes to beat out the original, 75 percent of voters prefer it to the current logo. Interestingly, of all the logos released so far, it is the closest match to the current one; the small changes include a sans serif font with a bolder look. The logos with the most drastic shifts away from tradition, Days Four and Six, were the most disliked among voters.Poll Position“We started running these polls because nobody was measuring sentiment, or which designs people really like the best,” said Dmitry Dragilev, lead marketer at Polar. “Data-based design is something [Yahoo CEO Marissa] Mayer holds dear to her heart.” The logo redesign is the latest in a series of changes that Yahoo has implemented since Mayer became CEO last year. In addition to going on an acquisition spree, the company rolled out a new look for its news and application websites this week that streamlines the Yahoo experience. The current logo has been headlining the company since 1995 and is no doubt in need of a makeover. The new logo will be a cherry on top of the sundae Mayer has rebuilt during her short tenure, and it looks like users are hoping for a modern take on Yahoo’s brand that doesn’t stray too far away from the look they are used to. That said, if Yahoo’s trademark exclamation point were eliminated, users would probably celebrate.  A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Related Posts selena larsoncenter_img Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Tags:#design#logo#Marissa Mayer#Poll#Yahoo#Yahoo logo The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videoslast_img read more
