- No Comments on Mexico and Costa Rica Speed Up Highway Project to Unite Central America
- Posted on
By Dialogo October 07, 2010 Mexico and Costa Rica are seeking to speed up the Pacific Corridor project, a roadway that is expected to reduce land travel time from Mexican territory to Panama from almost eight days at present to two-and-a-half days, the foreign ministry announced Tuesday. The announcement was made following a meeting between the Mexican foreign minister, Patricia Espinosa, and her Costa Rican counterpart, René Castro, who is on a working visit that will conclude on Thursday. In their meeting the ministers talked about “the importance of making progress on speeding up the Pacific Corridor, which will make it possible to reduce travel time from Mexico to Panama from 190 to 59 hours,” the Secretariat of Foreign Relations said in a statement. Both governments emphasized their commitment to the Mesoamerican Integration and Development Project, specifically in the transportation area, work on which is led by Costa Rica. The foreign ministers also exchanged perspectives on Mexico’s preparations for the UN Climate Change Conference to be held in November in the beach resort of Cancún (in eastern Mexico).

Police said he had moved to Bay Shore from Arkansas after the storm. His bail was set at $1,000.New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman also announced a $12,000 penalty against the latest LI gas station—this one in East Islip—for price gouging after the storm and a $40,000 penalty against Bay Shore-based G.C. Environmental, Inc., which mailed to homeowners 2,300 deceptive letters to drum up business after Sandy.Schneiderman said the environmental company sent letters resembling state Department of Environmental Conservation violation notices to property owners that has petroleum spills during Sandy. The letters warned of $25,000 per day penalties and offered the companies services to clean up the spills to avoid the fines. Most were sent to LI addresses while a third was sent to New York City.The company got the addresses from a DEC database of reports the agency received regarding nearly 5,000 oil spills after Sandy. The letters mimicked the format, letterhead and DEC logo, giving the impression that the DEC was considering fining the recipients. The DEC was not fining storm victims for spills; it was cleaning up the spills for free.Schneiderman’s $12,000 penalty against the USA Petroleum on East Main Street in East Islip for illegally increasing prices was also upheld last week by a Suffolk County judge, who found the station raised pre-tax gas prices 35 percent.The attorney general’s office is continuing its investigation into post-Sandy gas price gouging, already having secured $301,118 in penalties and costs from 44 gas stations in New York City, Long Island and the Hudson Valley.

12SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Talk about timely. As I was preparing to write an article on IT Security training, it was reported that Hillary Clinton ignored the mandatory IT and cyber-security training, as did many of her counterparts in the state department during her tenure as Secretary of State. This is in no way a political blog post on my part, but merely a segway into discussing IT security training in credit unions. This recent report is only fueling the fire behind her email woes:Glaring shortcomings in cyber-security training throughout the State Department on former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s watch reflected a pervasive anti-security “culture” she encouraged there…Acting State Department Inspector General Harold W. Geisel issued six critical reports that charged top officials did not submit themselves to the department’s mandatory “security awareness training” during Clinton’s tenure…Senior officials from deputy assistant secretaries to chiefs of missions at U.S. embassies did not submit themselves to regular training sessions as required by the department and government-wide standards, according to Geisel… continue reading »
The Turkish media reported comments by Atalyaspor president Gultekin Gencer in which he claimed that Valdes was keen to move to his club this summer. Valdes recovered from a serious knee injury to make two Premier League appearances last season as he remained behind David de Gea in the Old Trafford pecking order. Victor Valdes’ agent has ruled out a switch to Turkish side Atalyaspor due to the player’s wish to remain at Manchester United. Press Association “Some people from Turkey called me to negotiate Victor’s signing,” Valdes’ agent Gines Carvajal said to Spanish newspaper AS. “But I’ve never spoken to the president of that Turkish club. “Hence, I’m not going to discuss the comments he made regarding Victor. I don’t know him. “We have no intention of speaking to them again because the player does not want to go to Antalyaspor. “His wish is to continue to play for Manchester United. “He has one year left on his contract with the club. “We don’t see any just reason to leave the club. “United is one of the best three or four clubs in the world. “Victor is enthusiastic to have a place in the team for next season and is ready to give his best to help the team much more.” The 33-year-old Valdes joined the Red Devils in October 2014, three months after leaving Barcelona following 12 years with the first team. Newly-promoted Turkish Super League club Antalyaspor recently acquired Cameroon forward Samuel Eto’o and are keen to make other big-name signings this summer.

Iowa State defensive line coach Curtis Bray, center, talks with players during drills at the Bergstrom Indoor Practice Facility in Ames, Iowa. (AP Photo/Ronnie Miller, Ames Tribune/File)AMES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa State defensive line coach Curtis Bray died Wednesday, the team said. He was 43.Cyclones spokesman Mike Green confirmed Bray’s death to The Associated Press, but said no additional details were immediately available.“Curtis Bray was a dear friend to me and to all he ever came in contact with,” Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads said. “He was a trusted and loyal assistant coach who always put the kids and the team in front of his work. He was as genuine in his approach to relationships, coaching and life as anyone I have ever been associated with. We will miss him dearly.”Bray grew up in Monroeville, Pa. and became the first defensive player to be honored as the Gatorade national player of the year for Gateway High in 1987.Bray graduated from Pitt in 1992 after a stellar career as a linebacker for the Panthers. He also coached at Duquesne, Western Kentucky and Villanova and later worked with Rhoads at Pittsburgh, where Bray spent seven seasons.Bray was the linebackers coach when Rhoads was Pitt’s defensive coordinator. Bray followed Rhoads to Ames when he was named Iowa State’s head coach in 2009 after working on the staff at Temple.“Curtis made indelible contributions as both a player and assistant coach at Pitt. His competitive nature on the field was only surpassed by his kind and gentle demeanor off of it ,” the University of Pittsburgh athletic department said in a statement. “Our deepest sympathies go out to his family and many loved ones. While Curtis will be greatly missed, he will not be forgotten by the many people he touched at Pitt.”Bray spent the past five seasons working at Iowa State and was known for his work with the defensive ends. The Cyclones reached three bowls games during Bray’s time on the staff.“He was so much fun to be around,” Iowa State defensive end Cory Morrissey said. “He could joke around with you and make a tense situation better with his personality. I am really going to remember the way he coached me and the way he coached my position group. I really didn’t know the defensive end position very well coming into Iowa State. I credit everything to coach Bray and his coaching skills.”Bray is survived by his wife, Heather, a daughter, Sydney, and a son, Colden Charles.
