Court approves zoos injunction against Costa Rica Environment Ministry

first_imgCosta Rica’s Environment Ministry (MINAE) has been making plans to close the country’s two public zoos. But on Tuesday, a local court ruled in favor of an injunction against MINAE, temporarily preventing the ministry from moving forward with the closures.“They can’t come in the doors,” said Eduardo Bolaños, spokesman for the zoo’s administrative organization, FUNDAZOO. “They can’t do anything in the zoo at all.”MINAE publicly announced in July that it would remove the animals from both the Simón Bolívar Zoo in San José and the Santa Ana Conservation Center, southwest of the capital, and replace the zoos with cage-less bio-parks. The change is set to take place next May, when MINAE’s 10-year contract expires with FUNDAZOO, which has served as the zoos’ administrator for the past 19 years.The injunction will stay in effect until a court rules on whether or not FUNDAZOO is legally entitled to continue as the zoos’ administrator. According to FUNDAZOO, its contract automatically renews every 10 years unless they are given notice within the first three months of the 9th year of the contract. FUNDAZOO alleges that it received notice on March 5, five days too late.MINAE has appealed the injunction and, in a press release sent Thursday, said that it has yet to go into effect.The injunction specifically prohibits MINAE from “any action pertaining to the execution of the liquidation or separation of FUNDAZOO,” according to the court ruling. According to Bolaños, this prevents MINAE from conducting any future tests or inventory on zoo grounds.Last week FUNDAZOO’s lawyer, Enrique Rojas, filed an official complaint after MINAE officials entered both zoos to take inventory of the animals. Rojas said that FUNDAZOO was never given notice of the visits, while Environment Vice Minister Ana Lorena Guevara told The Tico Times they sent notice weeks earlier.This is not the first time MINAE has tried to get rid of FUNDAZOO. In 2004, at the end of the last contract, the state refused to renew the administration’s contract, but an arbitration court ruled in FUNDAZOO’s favor, based on a technicality.Whatever the court’s final ruling, MINAE officials say that the zoo will convert regardless of the administration.“Even in the improbable case that FUNDAZOO wins this case and does not turn the zoo over to the state, the truth is that they will not be able to have caged animals or replace any of their animals that die, and they will have to reintroduce any animals to the wild that are capable of living in the wild.” Facebook Comments Related posts:Redefining Costa Rica’s zoos Free the animals!

IATA Open Borders Strategy

first_imgReviewing visa requirements and removing unnecessary travel restrictions: The goal is to remove unnecessary barriers to travel. Existing visa regimes are overly restrictive, expensive and inefficient, and will be unable to cope with forecast travel demand. The solution to this lies in unlocking the potential from shared information in a trusted framework. This will improve security, while smoothing passenger flows and easing demand for new infrastructure to accommodate the forecast doubling in air travel over the next two decades.Including travel facilitation as part of bilateral and regional trade negotiations: Free trade agreements have seen an expansion of goods and services moving across borders. This has stimulated economic growth for participating countries. Restrictive visa requirements are non-tariff barriers to trade, yet they are not normally addressed in trade discussions. IATA believes that removing restrictions on the free movement of travelers should receive as much priority as other barriers to liberalized trade in goods and services. One way is for governments to include liberalized visa requirements in trade agreements.Linking registered-traveler programs: Several states already operate registered traveler programs. Research shows that a large majority of travelers are willing to provide personal information in exchange for expedited handling in the travel process. Registered-traveler programs are a key component of risk-based security measures which help governments to use scarce resources with maximum efficiency. Where these program are linked (Canada-US for example) the efficiencies grow. But these are still rare cases. IATA encourages more governments to build links between their programs.Using API data more effectively and efficiently: Airlines spend millions of dollars providing Advance Passenger Information (API) as required by governments. Governments must process API data efficiently. For example, as governments have information in advance of boarding, inadmissible passengers should be notified before their journey begins, rather than on arrival which is costly for airlines and disappointing for passengers. Similarly, arrival procedures should be streamlined for passengers whose data has been vetted in advance. Source = International Air Transport Association (IATA) IATA Open Borders StrategyIATA Open Borders StrategyThe International Air Transport Association (IATA) called on governments to intensify efforts to spread the economic and social benefits of aviation by removing onerous barriers to the free movement of people across borders“Over the next 20 years, the number of passengers will double. That’s excellent news for the global economy, as air connectivity is a catalyst for job creation and GDP growth. But we will not get the maximum social and economic benefits from this growth if barriers to travel are not addressed and processes streamlined,” said Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s Director General and CEO.There are many barriers to travel, ranging from visa restrictions and government information requirements to the capacity of current facilitation processes to absorb growing numbers of air travelers. IATA has evolved a comprehensive Open Borders Strategy to help governments work with industry to maintain the integrity of national borders while removing inefficiencies that prevent the industry from satisfying travel demand.Research by the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) on the impact of visa facilitation indicates that $89 billion in tourism receipts and 2.6 million jobs would be created in the Asia-Pacific region alone with the reduction of barriers to travel.The IATA Open Borders Strategy has four main components:last_img read more

regarding their attitude after the defeat in the second Test However England came back strongly in the third Test to secure a thrilling win by 340 runs This led Root to instil renewed confidence in his side and claim that England is trying to find out the most successful formula moving forward Recalling the performance in the second Test he said “We weren’t good enough at Trent Bridge and I think it was important that we sat down after that and found a way to come back from that” said Joe Root ahead of the fourth Test at Old Trafford on Thursday (August 3) “The response the guys came up with was excellent” On the fourth Test Root said “It’s obviously a new challenge this week and a slightly different frame of mind going into it” and added “There is no reason why we can’t do that [play well] again” Commenting on his captaincy reign Root said “Early on in my captaincy I am trying to find out what I want and what’s going to be the most successful formula moving forward I suppose it’s very difficult to use Test matches as experiments but it’s important to find out what works early on so you have the opportunity to be more consistent and more successful” Stressing on the need for a balanced side Root added “You are trying to get the balance right between that consistency and making sure that we are playing a side that suits the surface that we come up against Moving

India’s Related News New Delhi did well to respond decisively when tragedy struck Nepal But India is at the very beginning of a long and demanding process of delivering relief to victims assisting their rehabilitation and contributing to the reconstruction of Nepal While Kathmandu is now being flooded with media and relief teams from around the world the cameras will soon leave Nepal The world’s attention will turn to the next crisis But India must stick around for the long haul Geographic proximity cultural intimacy and economic interdependence means Nepal’s problems are also India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi is aware of this reality and has devoted special attention to revitalising ties after he took charge as PM Nepal is the only country Modi has visited twice On both occasions he underlined the unique bond between the two countries If there was a moment to lend substance to the claim that the neighbourhood ranks first in India’s foreign policy it is now and in Nepal Signalling goodwill is easy as Modi did immediately He must now follow through and initiate a comprehensive strategy to support Nepal’s rapid recovery This will involve a significant commitment of resources Even more important is a credible long-term strategy for Indian participation in Nepal’s efforts to rise from the rubble Central to that is the political recognition that any framework for external assistance must be supportive of but subordinate to the initiatives of the Nepali people Disaster Politics It is a matter of time before politics intrudes on the management of the aftermath Delhi must be acutely conscious of two pitfalls The Indian government must avoid any real or seeming violation of Nepal’s sovereignty In humanitarian assistance and disaster relief India has insisted on absolute respect for the host government It should not forget that principle Most political elites are touchy about external assistance during a national calamity The political classes in Kathmandu are even touchier especially when it comes to India’s role India has much goodwill among Nepal’s people But Delhi could easily squander it by being politically insensitive Delhi must also insulate its relief effort from India’s domestic politics Nepal has long been a tempting theatre for various Indian groups to play their own political games It is essential for the government to stay on top of the discourse Given the long-term commitments involved Modi must reach out to all parties and take them into confidence on India’s aid strategy Equally important is the need to draw in the chief ministers of the states bordering Nepal That fits in with the PM’s emphasis on federalism as well as the challenges that Nepal and its neighbouring Indian regions share Regional Cooperation Delhi must not forget that the crisis in Nepal is not just about India and its support for a special neighbour Many countries and international institutions will be involved in assisting Nepal Instead of thinking in exclusive terms Delhi must actively promote greater regional and international cooperation in rebuilding Nepal Although Saarc has agreements on disaster management they have not really been effective Delhi must focus on accelerating sub-regional cooperation between Bangladesh Bhutan India and Nepal India must also engage China Europe and America on making the Himalayan regions less vulnerable to natural disasters Beijing has often talked about a triangular trans-Himalayan cooperation among India Nepal and China As Modi prepares to travel to China this is an opportune moment to

parents want their children to find the correct partner and stick to him or her but he considers himself lucky that his family is open to his way of life “I haven’t sat down with my family to discuss things beyond a point because they have faith in me But I think I may be one of the lucky few Growing up in a city like Mumbai the mindset of the family is also slightly different In India as a whole

has found that doing fixed intensity exercise during menstrual cycle does not affect a woman’s autonomic heat responses (skin blood flow and sweating) That’s according to a collaboration between Massey University the University at Buffalo and the University of Otago They also found that exercise performance was impaired by humid heat due to the reduced ability of the body to sweat effectively ALSO READ|Simple walking regime can help improve heart health The research studied the effects of heat on ten well-trained women across their menstrual cycles Each woman completed four trials comprising of resting and fixed-intensity cycling followed by a 30-minute variable-intensity performance trial The trials were conducted in the early-follicular (days 3-6) and mid-luteal (days 18-21) phases of their menstrual cycle in dry and humid heat environments Dr Toby Mündel from Massey University and co-author of the study said “This study indicates that trained women self-pace to minimise autonomic differences (skin blood flow and sweating) but at the expense of their exercise performance under humid heat stress One in two competitive women believe that their menstrual cycle negatively impacts training and performance; however these results question the assertion made by previous researchers that women should avoid competition or face a disadvantage when performing exercise with

approval of disallowing TDLR in March the matter was further discussed and approved in Maharashtra Electricity Regulatory Commission (MERC) after which the court gave its nod on the revenue in its hearing on October 4 “This means that the power bills of consumers issued in November will be the last month to include the levy of TDLR in its supply bills Post November no supply consumer of BEST will be charged with the extra costs on it Ahead of it new tariffs will be prepared by MERC which will not have the inclusion of this surcharge” said Jagdish Patil General Manager BEST Of the 400 meter readers at present in BEST the undertaking had divided its supply consumers in 21 cycles for October Of these four cycles (high-voltage end consumers) were charged with TDLRs in their power bills while the rest were exempted The undertaking now plans to adjust their bill amounts in the coming month by charging them lesser than the surcharge levied before “Those four cycles which include almost two lakh power consumers were charged with TDLR in October and so their amounts will be compensated in the power bill charged for October in November However the undertaking is yet to receive Rs 15 crore from a total of Rs 2876 crore which MERC had allowed us to incur through this surcharge Thus the power bills of the remaining eight lakh consumers will be levied in such a way that we are able to get back this money” Patil added Sources from BEST said the undertaking had received close to Rs 3500 crore through this surcharge Till 2015-16 the supply division of the undertaking had managed to remain in profits due to the surcharge received from its consumers “Since the last couple of years we were always on the plus side as far as accounts of supply division is concerned However post the discontinuation of levying TDLR we will have to look at other options of making do with its loss Among the measures suggested charging a cess on property tax increasing the base consumers and limit areas of BEST electricity supply and asking the parent organisation — BMC — for money remain some of the options” Patil added The BEST has to repay almost Rs 1600 crore of loan taken to the corporation of which it pays almost Rs 40 crore each month with a 10 per cent interest To compensate the absence of TDLR the BEST had also asked for a grant of Rs 1000 crore to the corporation of which Rs 400 crore was asked on an immediate basis which still awaits a nod “Not levying TDLR from November comes as a welcome move However what the BEST now has to look at is repaying the extra amount charged in the form of TDLR from its consumers which amounts to almost Rs 350 crore” said Ravi Raja BEST committee member For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top

Defending champion Paris Saint-Germain slipped to its fourth defeat in the French league losing at Guingamp 2-1 on Saturday in another setback that cranks up the pressure on coach Unai Emery With one game left before the winter break PSG has already lost twice as many league games as it did last season when it was unbeaten in the league until Feb 28 won Ligue 1 by a record 31 points and scored 102 goals for whopping goal difference of +83 India vs England Live Score PSG lost only four games last season in all competitions winning a second straight domestic treble under former coach Laurent Blanc The other two defeats were in the Champions League against Real Madrid in the group stage and Manchester City in the quarterfinal return leg “Something’s not right” PSG midfielder Marco Verratti said “For us it’s a crisis” With the exception of Zlatan Ibrahimovic who left for Manchester United PSG has the same side “It’s a problem in our minds with concentration” Verratti said “We’re starting games as if we’ve won them Football is not like that Last season we won because we were at 100 percent when we came out onto the pitch We have to get that back” Still Verratti backed Emery “We’re working harder than previous years It’s not a problem with the coach” the Italy international said “It’s our fault the players” PSG’s defensive frailties were exposed again as Guingamp scored twice in quick succession midway through the second half After forward Yannis Salibur opened the scoring in the 66th minute midfielder Nill De Pauw added the second four minutes later Last weekend PSG trailed 2-0 at home to league leader Nice and salvaged a 2-2 draw thanks to two second-half goals from league top scorer Edinson Cavani But despite Cavani’s 80th-minute goal – his 17th of the season –against

behind us” Emery said “It’s difficult for everyone” PSG has taken only one point from its last three league games and won only one of its past five overall – a midweek League Cup win over Lille – and Emery is struggling to impose his methods after replacing Blanc Blanc was fired in the summer because of PSG’s failure to get past the quarterfinals of the Champions League Just months before Blanc was given a new contract and it reportedly cost PSG around 20 million euros ($21 million) to remove him and his coaching staff PSG replaced him with Emery whose reputation was high having just led Sevilla to its third straight Europa League title Guingamp’s win must have been particularly satisfying for coach Antoine Kombouare He was sacked by PSG at roughly the same stage of the season five years ago despite his side being three points clear at the top heading into the winter break Kombouare explained his strategy for beating PSG “The idea was to stop them passing out from the back” he said “We closed them down high up and when we won the ball we pushed forward quickly” The win moved Guingamp up to fourth place behind PSG which trails Monaco by three points and Nice by four The gap could be larger after Sunday’s games with Nice at home to 17th-place Dijon and Monaco at home to Lyon OTHER GAMES A late goal from center half Christopher Jullien helped Toulouse salvage a 1-1 home
