Central American Games kick off in Costa Rica with colorful opening

first_imgNo related posts. With folk dances evoking nature and pre-Hispanic times, Costa Rica opened on Sunday the 10th edition of the Central American Games, in which some 2,700 athletes will compete for two weeks in San José in 26 sporting events.Visitors to a packed National Stadium in La Sabana Park, in western San José, were treated to a show of 1,000 artists performing on a cool and windy night.“These athletes speak of a Central America that responds with a message of peace and brotherhood to the challenges of violence and criminality,” President Laura Chinchilla said at the opening of the games.The show, called “Costa Rica Pura Vida,” recreated the elements of earth, air, water and fire.Costa Rican footballer Paulo César Wanchope carried the torch into the stadium, and swimmer Silvia Poll – silver medal winner at the Seoul Olympic Games in 1988 – lit the cauldron, designed by renowned Costa Rican sculptor Jorge Jiménez Deredia.Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica and Panama bring their best athletes to the games, which take place in San José for the first time since its inaugural edition in 1973.Fire scare After the ceremony, fireworks sparked a blaze in an area of ​​the stadium’s roof. No injuries were reported.Firefighters brought the fire under control at 9:40 p.m. in the west wing of the stadium, evacuating a few people who remained in the stadium after the inauguration ceremony.“It was a fire in a small area of the roof’s acrylic tiles,” Fire Chief Héctor Chávez said, adding that it was under control a few minutes later.

Costa Rica seeks arrest extradition from US of Sea Shepherds Paul Watson

first_imgAfter 15 months at sea to avoid Interpol red alerts issued for his arrest by Japan and Costa Rica, the embattled conservationist Paul Watsonfinally went ashore late last month to visit family and testify in a U.S. case brought against him by Japan’s Institute of Cetacean Research.Watson, the 62-year-old founder of Sea Shepherd, arrived in Los Angeles, California, where he was welcomed by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. (yes, that Robert F. Kennedy) and other supporters. He was not arrested as he passed through U.S. customs.“I have returned to the United States. The Interpol Red Notice from Costa Rica has been dropped,” Watson wrote on his Facebook page at the time.It seemed like the red notice on behalf of Costa Rica had been dropped, as Watson’s attorneys had indicated. A search of Interpol’s website turned up no notice of a red alert on behalf of Costa Rica, although a red alert issued by Japan was still active.Watson was on U.S. soil for only a week when Costa Rican judicial officials formally requested the U.S. extradite him back to Costa Rica to face charges of allegedly endangering a ship’s crew at high seas in a 2002 incident off the coast of Guatemala.On Nov. 5, Costa Rica’s First Circuit Penal Court of San José requested the U.S. arrest Watson and extradite him to Costa Rica.“Finding the accused [Watson] in the United States, we request his immediate capture, and once that has been executed the procedure for his extradition will begin,” the request from First Circuit Judge Jorge Cordero stated.A spokeswoman for Costa Rica’s judicial branch confirmed on Wednesday the request had been sent via diplomatic channels to the U.S. government. The U.S. has not yet formally responded to the request, and Watson has not been arrested.Watson’s Costa Rican attorney, Federico Morales, told The Tico Times that Costa Rica had “reactivated” an international arrest request and then communicated that decision to the U.S. Embassy.Morales said he would challenge the request, as he believes the statute of limitations on the charges against Watson “expired in 2004 or 2005.”Costa Rica claims Watson, a Canadian citizen, violated Article 251 of the country’s Penal Code, which sanctions the endangerment of a ship and its crew. If found guilty, he could face up to 15 years in prison. Watson was arrested in May 2012 in Frankfurt, Germany, where he spent a month in jail. He was released to house arrest, but fled Germany by land and spent the next 15 months at sea.Watson and his crew strongly deny Costa Rica’s charges, and point to the documentary film “Sharkwater,” which portrays the incident on April 21, 2002, involving the Costa Rican fishing vessel Varadero I. Watson and Sea Shepherd accused the Varadero I’s crew of illegal shark-finning. The fishermen said the Sea Shepherds tried to kill them by ramming their boat and blasting them with water canons.“Watson, without authorization or legitimacy proceeded to take the law into his own hands by intimidating, threatening and attacking the Varadero I,” Cordero wrote.During the incident, a finger on the left hand of Costa Rican fisherman Antonio Mena was injured, Cordero noted.Follow updates at www.TicoTimes.net Facebook Comments Related posts:Sea Shepherd’s Paul Watson: ¡Viva Solís!

How much is it to get into Petra A lot Petra is

first_imgHow much is it to get into Petra?A lot. Petra is incredibly expensive, and there’s nothing you can do about it (unless you’re an Arabic national). Arabic nationals (people from Jordan, Iraq, Iran and other surrounding countries) only play 1JD per person. This goes up to an eye-watering 50JD (about £56) for foreigners, making it one of the most expensive tourist attractions in the world. However, if you’ve come straight from Eilat (or anywhere else in Israel or Egypt for that matter) and are only planning to spend the day at Petra and not spend the night in Jordan, then the price jumps again to 90JD. Ouch. It is worth noting that Petra is one of those places that works out more economically cheaper the longer you stay – a two-day ticket costs 55JD and a three-day ticket costs 60JD. What should I pack for a trip to Petra?Petra is in the middle of the desert, so it goes without saying to pack lots of water and sun block. You can buy these at the site, but obviously the prices are extortionately high. It’s also a good idea to be covered up at Petra. Even though lots of people walk around in shorts and strappy tops, Jordan is still a devout Muslim country and it’s best to respect the locals by dressing appropriately. Layers are key too – the temperate plummets at night and you always need extra layers. If you didn’t bring a hat then it’s good idea to buy a headscarf. At only a few JD, these are fantastic at keeping the sun off your head and they make excellent souvenirs too. Oh, and make sure you have comfortable shoes you’re happy to walk in all day – you’re going to need them! What is there to see?The SiqFirst up, there’s the Siq. As in antiquity, the Siq (meaning gorge) is still the main entrance into Petra. With high cliffs on either side of you, it was formed by moving tectonic plates, and the walls were smoothed by weather, water and time. The Siq pathway twists and turns for over a kilometre, and the observant will notice the terracotta pipes built into the rock face. If you’re planning on exploring here, make sure you don’t rush through – it’s a place to be enjoyed just as much as anywhere else in Petra. How do I get around Petra?If you’re worried about not being fit enough to get around Petra by foot, there are a number of different ways of seeing all this wondrous ancient city has to offer. From the site entrance to the Treasury it’s possible to get a horse and cart. This journey takes about 10 minutes and costs 20JD (return) for the horse and cart. All round Petra you’ll see donkeys and camels for hire. As a rule of thumb, it usually costs between 5-10JD per trip of up to one hour and you should tip the owner on top of this. If it’s a choice between a donkey and a camel, then go for a donkey – they can walk up stairs whereas a camel can’t. Please note: the ethical treatment and welfare of the animals by the Bedouin has been brought into question over the years, so only hire one if you really need it. Always check if the animal looks healthy and well cared for. What’s Petra by Night?Petra by Night is a magical light show every Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. The walkway from the Siq to the Treasury is lit up by 1,500 candles throwing mesmerising shadows onto the surrounding rock, and it is every bit as beautiful as the photos. The light show starts at 8.30pm, runs for two hours and costs 17JD*. Feeling inspired to take on the world?

If you’re looking for that extra special experience there’s the Seven Wonders Bedouin Camp just 30 minutes from Petra. Here you get to camp under the stars in small huts (don’t worry, there are camp beds here), and they even put on an impressive spread too. A little closer to Petra there are a number of hotels ranging from cheap to expensive. A good cheap hotel is the Petra Sella Hotel, and one for the high-end among you is the Mövenpick Petra Resort.Find hotels near Petracenter_img Al DierMeasuring 47m wide and 48m high, the Monastery (also known as Al Dier) is arguably even more impressive than the Treasury, especially when you take its location into consideration. You’ll find it hidden away 800 steps up the mountain, where one thought occurs to almost everyone: how did man construct something so grand up here? Make sure you get an iced lemon and mint at the top – you’ve earned it. RelatedHoliday cats: street cats of the world in picturesCalling all cat lovers!

Here’s the lowdown on the locations of 2016’s potential… Al KhaznaIf there’s one image that sells a destination, it’s this one. Once you get to the end of the Siq, you’ll behold a magnificent façade, that’s the famous the Treasury (a.k.a. Al Khazna). At 40m high, the Treasury stands sentinel above you. One of the beautiful things about the Treasury is it still remains shrouded in mystery: archaeologists can’t quite decide if it was a temple to the Gods or a memorial to the dead. Either way, it is absolutely stunning, so bring your very best camera. How do I get there?Petra is located in the southwest of Jordan close to the Israeli border and it is a three-hour drive from the capital Amman. For people coming directly from Israel, it is possible to visit Petra from both Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, but this is nearly always on a two-day tour. Also, it is possible to visit Petra in a day from Eilat (the most southern town in Israel) but it’ll cost you – more on that below. The majority of people come directly from Amman though, and if you want to do it independently there are a number of public buses and mini-buses that’ll take you to Petra. The public bus costs 8.50JD each way and a mini-bus is closer to 5JD each way. You can also get a taxi as well but at approximately 90JD (depending on how good you are at haggling) it is a lot more expensive. Another option is to hire a car for a couple of days.Find flights to Amman What is Petra?History buffs will know that Petra is an ancient Nabataean city that dates back to 312BC, with rose-coloured temples that seamlessly blend into the surrounding landscape. It’s also a major tourist destination, which attracts half a million people every year. Despite pulling in people from all over the world, Petra lay forgotten to the western world for centuries, known only to the Bedouin who made it their home, until the great Swiss explorer Jean Louis Burckhardt stumbled upon it in 1812. The story goes he was dressed as a local Bedouin at the time vowing to slaughter a goat when he came across the Treasury. We’ve all been there. Today, Petra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is basically always mentioned in listicles such as ‘Places to See Before You Die’. So, yeah, you know it’s worth a visit if it’s trending online. When’s the best time to visit Petra?If you want those photos without anyone in them, then the best time to get to Petra is when it opens at 6am. For those first few hours you really can have the place to yourself. A large majority of the tour coaches get to Petra around 10:30 onward, so this is when things start to get really busy. Happily though, Petra has the amazing ability of never feeling fully crowded. The crowds start to disperse around 3pm to head back to Amman, and from here till the site closes at 6pm you get the most beautiful light bouncing off the rock. It’s a real photographer’s paradise.last_img read more

Enrique said after Barca’s 6-1 thrashing of Sporting Gijon in La Liga "It is a difficult measured and well thought out decision and I think I have to be loyal to what I think" Barcelona’s coach Luis Enrique AFP Enrique’s contract is due to expire at the end of the season The former Barcelona captain has won eight trophies in his three seasons in charge including a treble in his first campaign and a La Liga and Copa del Rey double last season Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu said Enrique would go down as one of "Barca’s legendary coaches" However his future was placed in serious doubt after Barca’s 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Paris Saint-Germain in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie two weeks ago "There are three exciting months ahead" Enrique added "We are in a difficult situation especially in one competition but with the help of everyone and if the stars align we can turn that game around "I will give my full dedication in these three months" Like his friend and former teammate Pep Guardiola who stepped down after four glorious years in charge of Barca in 2012 Enrique highlighted the pressures of the top at the Camp Nou as his reason to step down "The reason is the way in which I live this profession It means very few hours of rest" However midfielder Ivan Rakitic said Enrique’s decision left the Barca players "open-mouthed" "The coach came into the dressing room and told us before the press conference" said Rakitic "We were all left a bit open-mouthed We didn’t know he was going to announce it today "He has all the support of the

effectively preventing microfinance companies from operating in that stateas well as its alleged causesincluding multiple lending and coercive collection practices by MFIs that have supposedly forgotten their social mission Howeverthe widespread criticism of microfinance and the Centres and the RBIs unwillingnessso farto step in decisively risks making an already bad situation even worse Indeedwe risk throwing out the financial inclusion baby along with the supposedly muddy microfinance bathwater One should first recognise that over the last decadeMFIs have been able to provide credit to over 25 million poor householdseclipsing five decades of government efforts And they were able to do this despite charging higher interest rates than banks or government programmes so clearly there has to be something right about the customer-centricity of their model IndeedMFIs in India emerged largely out of social-driven enterprisesfor most of whom profiteering was not the sole objective Even if one does not agree with thatthe fact that MFIs have played a role in starting a realmore scalable financial inclusion movement in Indiaespecially compared to the public sectormeans it is important to step back and analyse the positives and negatives of the model rather than getting carried away by the venal campaign of a particular group of state politicians Lets start with scale as a non-negotiable objective Clearly the microfinance sector has done well on this metricfor instance by successfully scaling up the human resources required for their high-touchlow-tech business model And this scaling up was achieved in a high-growth scenarioas MFIs increased their clients by 60 per cent every year since 2007; and in a fairly competitive landscapewith hundreds of MFIs competing in India with several other informal (moneylenders) and formal (bankslarge NBFCs) lending sources So we cannot ignore the efforts behind this scale-upand the business model that achieved it efficiently The delivery of most public goods in India still suffers from the last mile servicing problem Government efforts have been based on mandates rather than an incentive-based approach If cracking the last mile is a consistent and vital piece of the inclusion challengeany potential solutionlike the Indian microfinance modeldeserves a good look MFIs have demonstrated that a viable last mile solution exists in delivering basic services that the BOP (base or bottom of the pyramid) segment badly needs A closer look at the business elements of the MFI model could help us learn how to develop better last mile channels elsewhere If these are their key positiveswhere have MFIs failed They have successfully created a business model that serves the BOPthereby creating value for themselves and their shareholders in a sustained manner But they have not figured out how to share with customers the value that is being created And we are back to the same old conventional business models wheremost of the timethe value distribution is skewed towards the top and largely limited to shareholders and management And for the BOP segment this sharing is a must-have factor even if from a pure business strategy approach because this segment will always be close to the political classfor both the right and wrong reasons Rightbecause they ought to be the focus given the lack of access to even the most basic services Wrongbecause any politician will get nervous when other channels are also able to provide critical services to a segment she thinks of as my constituents.
