Coast Guard Seizes $350 Million of Cocaine in Pacific Ocean

first_img“This was 26,000 pounds of cocaine that will not make it to the main streets of the USA, and it also gives us the opportunity to make sure that we can continue to combat transnational criminal organizations that transport this cocaine deep in the Pacific every single day,” said Rear Adm. Peter Gautier, a Coast Guard district commander. “Because we know that with a supply chain of illegal narcotics, at every single step there’s violence, instability and despair.” The Coast Guard seized over 26,000 pounds of cocaine worth $350 million iduring several operations in the eastern Pacific Ocean, including one that involved a high-speed chase at sea with suspected drug smugglers.In one of the hauls, footage that was released by the Coast Guard showed suspected drug smugglers tossing out large containers of cocaine overboard as their boat sped through the water on July 18.“The crewmembers apprehended the suspected smugglers and seized approximately 2,300 pounds of cocaine from the vessel,” the Coast Guard said in a detailed statement Friday.The total amount of contraband came from six suspected drug smuggling vessels operations along with multiple floating bails that contained cocaine. The Coast Guard has labeled eastern Pacific Ocean and Caribbean Basin drug-smuggling “hotspots,” off of Central and South America. The US is expected to increase employment and create a deeper presence in the area.last_img read more

Ross-on-Wye prepares to host first English golf championship

first_img28 Apr 2016 Ross-on-Wye prepares to host first English golf championship Ross-on-Wye Golf Club will step on to the national stage when it hosts the English senior women’s amateur championship from 10-13 May.It’s the first time the club has staged a national championship and, says secretary Ian Griffiths: “There’s a feeling of excitement building up.“Many of the members are looking forward to helping out and over 50 have already put their names down to volunteer.”They’ll also have plenty of local interest with three club members in the field: Jan Armstrong, Pat Watkins and Amanda MarshallThe event – the first of the England Golf championship season – has attracted a strong field of over 100 of the country’s leading women golfers aged 50 and over.Among them are defending champion Helen Lowe of Leicestershire (Image © Leaderboard Photography) and Julie Brown of Staffordshire, the British senior champion and winner of England Golf’s senior order of merit for 2015.They’ll be joined by the other five internationals who teamed up to win the senior women’s Home Internationals last year: English senior stroke play champion Lulu Housman of Middlesex; Caroline Berry, Sue Dye and Cath Rawthore of Cheshire; and Lindsey Shaw of Derbyshire.The picturesque Ross-on-Wye course follows the natural contours of the hills and will set a good test. Ian Griffiths remarked: “The course demands accuracy – it’s tree-lined and if you’re not on the fairway you will struggle; and the greens are small so the approach shots are very important.

Saints captures first win of 2010 on road at UFV

first_imgFraser Valley was quick out of the gates in the third period and made the game close, as back-to-back goals from Travis Gorman and Graham Fast drew the Cascades within one. But Leighton Allsop’s goal at the midway point of the period provided insurance before Caleb Roy scored into an empty net with 30 seconds remaining in regulation. The Cascades found themselves in penalty trouble for much of the game, as Mike Wilson and Chris Price picked up cross-checking and elbowing majors in the first and second periods respectively. And the Saints made their hosts pay with the man-advantage, striking for three goals in the second and finishing 3-for-7 on the night. Georgetti was named the game’s first star with two goals — including the game winner — and three points, while Roy and Allsop each scored and assisted. Spensor Wong was strong between the pipes for the Saints, making 37 saves on a night where his team was outshot by a 40-28 margin. Cullen, Gorman and Nathan Sagert each had two points in the defeat for Fraser Valley, who received 23 saves from netminder Rhys Chesney.  Next up for the Saints is a home game double header against Simon Fraser University on Nov. 5 at 7pm and Nov. 6 at 4pm, all at the Castlegar Complex.This article is a press release from Selkirk College.

PPP questions mysterious deaths of 4 GGMC workers

first_img…claims deaths may be linked to mercury poisoningThe parliamentary Opposition has raised questions over the recent deaths of four Guyana Geology and Mines Commission (GGMC) staffers; a matter that has seemingly been shrouded in an information blackout.In a statement issued on Friday, the party expressed condolences to the relatives of the deceased staffers, whose names were given as Dwayne De Jonge (ranger), Latchman Chiti (surveyor), Leroy Green (carpenter) and Clement Proffit (lab technician). According to the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), the issue is one that must be addressed urgently by the relevant authorities.The Party also raised possible links to the mercury poisoning that had afflicted workers at the GGMC during amalgam burning exercises. According to the PPP, all four men were documented to have been affected by mercury poisoning.Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman and junior Minister Simona Broomes“These four deaths, which follow each other in such a short period of time, should be a cause for serious concern. It is disturbing that the Government and the GGMC have been reluctant to inform the staff and public about actions taken to ensure protection of not only staffers, but also those in surrounding communities.”“This is not a political issue,” the Party continued. “The PPP will support the Government of Guyana to ensure that every effort is made to guarantee the health and safety of our people. We therefore urge immediate action by the relevant authorities, including management of the GGMC and the Ministry of Public Health, to ensure the occupational health and safety standards are in place.”The Guyana Gold BoardAccording to the Party, precautionary measures such as testing and treatment for all staff must be operationalised by the GGMC and the Public Health Ministry. The cost for this, the Party advised, should be borne by the GGMC.“The PPP also supports the sourcing of specialists to respond to this matter before it becomes a bigger health crisis,” the party added.Calls by this publication to Natural Resources Minister Raphael Trotman and his junior Minister Simona Broomes went unanswered. When contacted, a top-level official within the Ministry was also at a loss to provide information about the men. He could only confirm that the men were employed at the GGMC and indeed died but did not have any more information.When contacted, President of the Guyana Civil Servants and General Workers Union (GCS & GWU) Gregory Gaspar declined to comment on the issue. According to Gaspar, he could not confirm the deaths of the men.Sources have informed this publication, however, that the men died in close proximation with the last one as recent as a few days ago.Mercury exposureA few months ago, a number of GGMC staffers had walked off the job citing concerns over exposure to mercury. The decision resulted in the authorities trying to mediate around the issue.Following the discovery of high levels of mercury in its laboratory, which is in the GGMC compound, the Guyana Gold Board (GGB) had contracted the services of Trinidad-based Kaizen Environmental Services to conduct an independent investigation of the effect of the emission, and that company has said the mercury levels are back to normal.According to the report, the study was conducted on March 28, 2018, at 10 locations primarily located within the Guyana Geology and Mines Commissions’ compound and the surrounding areas.“The mercury (Hg) levels monitored at all 10 locations were within the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (US OSHA) eight-hour Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL),” the report stated.Out of over 130 staffers tested, it was discovered that more than 60 reported high levels of mercury in their system. Trotman, appearing before the National Assembly’s Natural Resources Committee, had subsequently revealed that the Gold Board had moved its gold burning operations to a private dealer.last_img read more


first_imgDONEGAL’S World record lambshearer Ivan Scott scored his biggest competition win outside Ireland and the UK with a stunning upset victory in the New Zealand Corriedale Championships final at the Canterbury Show in Christchurch yesterday. It was a massive leap for the 33-year-old from Kilmacrennan who hadn’t won a competition in New Zealand since the 2008 Northern A and P Show in Rangiora.Having shorn in New Zealand every summer since he was 19, Scott has, however, twice broken the World eighth-hour strongwool lambshearing record. He is the current holder with 744, shorn when he claimed the record back from Hawke’s Bay shearer and former World and Golden Shears champion Cam Ferguson in January 2012 at Opepe Station, just east of Taupo.His win yesterday was based on the quality of his 10 sheep in the pen judging, where he was more than 4pts better than anyone else in the six-man final.His ultimate winning margin of 1.299pts was all that stood between 47-year-old defending champion Rakaia shearer Tony Coster and a unique treble on a day when Coster was presented with a small trophy marking his acclaim as a Master Shearer.  SHEARER CLASS FOR DONEGAL’S IVAN SCOTT AS HE STUNS NEW ZEALAND WITH ANOTHER VICTORY was last modified: November 15th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Ivan ScottkilmacrennanNew Zealandsheep shearing championlast_img read more

New Ways to Find E.T.

first_img(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 SETI researchers may not have to wait by the stellar radio dial for their imaginary friends to call in.  They might eavesdrop on their pollution.Perhaps desperate for proof of life beyond the earth, scientists continue to expand their search resources.  One idea put forth by Avi Loeb at Harvard, with two buddies, is that we could find them by their smog.  Specifically, chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) of a certain type would be nearly impossible for natural processes to produce.  If someone on a distant planet is using hairspray, then, we might be able to tell if alien blondes are smarter than their human counterparts.That’s not much sillier than what Sheyna Gifford wrote, in all seriousness, for NASA’s Astrobiology Magazine:While primitive forms of life have their own biomarkers – like oxygen and methane – these molecules are too complicated for nature to, as Loeb put it, “do this on its own.” However, at least for the moment, we can’t rush off and start looking for aliens by their hairspray.The only reason we can’t is we don’t have the detection technology yet.  In principle, it could be done.  This represents a departure from the old SETI program of listening in for signals broadcast intentionally.  Now, it’s eavesdropping.  Maybe the NSA should take up this job.Loeb’s thesis was published on the arXiv server, awaiting publication in the Astronomical Journal.  On Live Science, Elizabeth Howell thought the idea was just fine.  Instead of portraying aliens as dumb blondes with hairspray, she envisioned purple aliens: quoting Loeb, her article ends, “People often refer to E.T.’s as ‘little green men,’ but the E.T.’s detectable by this method should not be labeled ‘green’ since they are environmentally unfriendly.”Charles Q. Choi on discussed a related suggestion by Sara Seager of MIT.  Life could be inferred, she argues in a paper on PNAS, by scanning atmospheres of exoplanets for ways organisms might have made alterations that normal physical processes would not make.  This strategy does not assume the organisms are intelligent; even microbes might affect their planet’s atmospheres in unnatural ways.  The “biomarkers” are too difficult to detect right now.  Like Loeb, Seager hopes that the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST), scheduled for launch in 2018, will have the capability to eavesdrop on life beyond earth.  Bob Yirka summarized Seager’s views on PhysOrg.In another stretch of the imagination, researchers are peering into oil drops to divine habitats for life.  Science Daily says, “An international team of researchers has found extremely small habitats that increase the potential for life on other planets while offering a way to clean up oil spills on our own” (paper in Science Magazine; got good press in Nature, too).  Rationale: they found microbes in water droplets in an oily lake, but it was their asphalt.  Megan Gannon launched from that gooey subject into 4 possible places in our solar system where alien life could exist: Mars, Europa, Titan and Enceladus.  She’s forgotten that Texas is being overrun by aliens right now.Silliness of hairspray aside, there are serious philosophical questions to discuss with Loeb’s theory.  Evolution News & Views, for instance, used the occasion to discuss the design filter and to clarify the limits of design inference.  If SETI researchers seriously believe that we could make an inference to intentional, intelligent causes merely from observing certain rare gases in an alien planet’s atmosphere, what’s the problem with intelligent design reasoning?  If evolutionists use it, why can’t their critics use the same thought processes?  This is a good story to throw back at the atheists who insist, vehemently, that intelligent design is not scientific.  Good grief, Loeb and his lackeys think they can figure out the environmental ethics of aliens, their color and their wisdom, too!  All ID tries to do is separate intelligent causes from non-intelligent causes.  ID advocates are, therefore, the more empirically modest scientists.  Yet the Darwine-drunk guys in SETI get away with outlandish speculations.Exercise: What do we mean by “natural”?  Atheists will claim that aliens are natural, like they believe humans are products of natural selection.  How would you clarify the difference between natural causes and intelligent causes to someone who thinks intelligent causes are a subset of natural causes?  Cf. 05/11/06.last_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Redknapp says West Ham midfielder Rice can fix England woesby Paul Vegas11 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveJamie Redknapp believes West Ham midfielder Declan Rice can fix England’s defensive woes.Michael Keane’s poor form at international level continued in Friday’s loss to Czech Republic.And Redknapp thinks Rice, who operates in midfield for club and country, can do a job alongside Harry Maguire at centre-back.In his column for the Daily Mail, former Three Lions midfielder Redknapp wrote: “Is Declan Rice the answer to England’s problems in defence? I suspect he could be.”I see a centre back in the 20-year-old and that is where his future could lie for club and country, rather than being used solely in midfield.”In the modern game, players are being told to pass it out from the back, and Rice is capable of executing that.”He’d be more than happy to get on the ball and has the intelligence needed to form an effective centre back partnership.”Watch West Ham and you’ll see this young man is excellent at what he does. In the Premier League this season, only two midfielders have made more tackles than Rice.”He also ranks fourth for interceptions and seventh for ball recoveries. I believe he could apply those talents to central defence, too, while being the proficient passer Gareth Southgate wants.” last_img read more

Promising High School Basketball Player Collapses and Dies During

James Hampton (photo via Twitter)A skilled athlete from Charlotte, North Carolina’s AAU program, died on Saturday, May 26, at the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League game in Hampton, VA.James Hampton, 17, collapsed on the basketball court against Nike Phamily during the second half. The Liberty Heights senior was running down the court and turned towards the referee and said “Hey ref” then fell to the floor according to Team United director Jacoby Davis. One of the medical assistants checked Hampton’s pulse after applying chest compressions, but there was no pulse.“It’s hard to even explain,” Davis told The Charlotte Observer. “To have a kid in your program with so much life — that’s just the kind of kid he was. He was always happy. For something like this to happen, I can’t even explain it. And to have to talk to a parent not even in town and tell him that his son has died, well, that’s more devastating.”The coach said Hampton had suffered from seizures in the past.“He just fell down on the floor… He had seizures a year ago — and I remember [one of the Team United coaches] telling me that, ‘I saw his eyes rolling back in his head.’ I ran on the court thinking he was having a seizure. A trainer came over and said he didn’t know what was wrong. Another trainer checked his pulse. He said he didn’t have a pulse. It got crazy after that,” Davis said.NBA Hall of Famer and former Chicago Bulls Player Scottie Pippen tweeted, “Emotional day at Nike EYBL in Virginia after the passing of James Hampton.”Emotional day at Nike EYBL in Virginia after the passing of James Hampton.

UNC shows OSU womens soccer whos No 1

Ohio State women’s soccer coach Lori Walker said her team battled and played well against No. 1-ranked University of North Carolina on Sunday, but not well enough as the No. 18-ranked Buckeyes lost, 3-0. UNC (4-0-0) used a first-half goal from junior midfielder Amber Brooks to open the scoring and silence a Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium crowd of 2,892. A second-half goal from sophomore forward Khelia Ohai doubled the Tar Heels’ lead and a late tap-in by senior forward Emmalie Pfankuch provided all the offense needed to upend the Buckeyes (3-2-0). “Any time the No. 1 team comes in your house and battles and your squad makes a game of it, there’s something to be proud of,” Walker said after the game. “There’s a lot we’re going to learn from this match.” The opening half-hour of play saw the Buckeyes and Tar Heels split possession, but OSU was the first to threaten to score. A Tar Heels turnover in the 11th minute sent play in the opposite direction and after collecting the ball, OSU junior forward Tiffany Cameron attempted to play freshman forward Ellyn Gruber toward UNC’s goal. Senior keeper Gay Adelaide scurried forward and kicked the ball out of play before Gruber could reach through-ball. OSU threatened again in the 31st minute when junior midfielder Aly Walker slipped behind UNC’s back line. Walker took a lofted pass and nodded a shot on goal, but Adelaide again came forward and was able to knock the headed shot aside. Adelaide would finish the match with three saves. The Tar Heels opened the scoring in the 35th minute after referee Michael Allie awarded UNC a free kick just outside the Buckeyes’ penalty area. The ensuing strike from Brooks — a low, driven shot on goal — took a deflection before glancing off the hand of Buckeyes’ senior keeper Katie Baumgardner. “I got a hand on (the shot),” Baumgardner said. “If I could take it back, I would. It was a little out of my control.” Baumgardner would go on to save two of UNC’s five on-target shots in the match. The Tar Heels took a 1-0 into halftime, but OSU took the game to UNC shortly after play resumed. In the 55th minute, Buckeyes senior forward Paige Maxwell dribbled up field, shook her defender and fired a shot from about 20 yards out that beat Adelaide, but caromed off the crossbar and out of play. “I was probably leaning back too much because I thought it was a closer shot,” Maxwell said. “I guess I leaned a little high. I should have tried to place it.” Four minutes later, UNC made the Buckeyes pay for Maxwell’s missed opportunity. Ohai collected the ball inside OSU’s penalty area, cut the ball back to create space and then calmly deposited a shot into the back of Baumgardner’s net to put the Tar Heels up 2-0. “The goal that Ohai created — if the kid can stop on a dime and keep her feet to shoot, the kid deserves a goal,” Lori Walker said of UNC’s second goal. Brooks then assisted on another UNC goal 18 minutes later. Brooks floated a cross off a set piece into the Buckeyes’ penalty area in the 77th minute. Sophomore forward Elizabeth Burchenal corralled the ball inside the six-yard box and rolled it across the face of Baumgardner’s goal to Pfankuch. Pfankuch then scored a tap-in goal to round out UNC’s offensive production in the match. “We gave up two goals on set pieces — that’s a mental thing,” Lori Walker said. “We’ve got to do better than that.” UNC denied the Buckeyes’ forwards at nearly every turn over the final 13 minutes and went on collect its first shutout of the season. After the game, Baumgardner said there were many positives to glean from the night’s result. “The kind of pressure that we played under, with (UNC) being so good and so technical, is really going to help us in the future,” Baumgardner said. Lori Walker agreed, saying she hoped for a future encounter with a No. 1-ranked team. “For us, the preparation that we get from this match will help us in the Big Ten conference,” she said. “Ultimately, you want to meet the No.1 team later on in the year.” OSU continues its regular season next Sunday at home with a 6 p.m. game against Ohio University. read more
