Panama Participates in LXI Meeting of Central American Security Commission

first_imgBy Rodulfo Barrios, Panamanian Ministry of Security February 16, 2017 Deputy Minister of Public Security, Jonattan Del Rosario, accompanied by representatives from the Foreign Relations Office and the security sectors, participated in the LXI general meeting of the Central American Security Commission on February 9th, held under Costa Rica’s rotating presidency of the Central American Integration System (SICA, per its Spanish acronym). In his address to the commission, Deputy Minister Rosario reaffirmed Panama’s commitment under President Juan Carlos Varela to support regional efforts in the fight against drug trafficking and organized crime and to continue working out new agreements and developing new platforms for exchanging security and intelligence information and migration alerts as a priority issue. Within the context of this high-level meeting, delegates from SICA member states received reports on the efforts that the four subcommittees of the Central American Security Commission have made in the areas of public safety, violence prevention, legal issues, and defense matters. Progress has been made on revising the public safety mandates that have come out of the heads of state summits among SICA nations, which are pending implementation, as well as on the joint drafting of the Project to Strengthen Criminal Investigations, which will be presented to the European Union for review as part of the 2014-2020 regional cooperation program. In addition, the master document outlining the logical framework and road map for technical assistance to bolster social rehabilitation programs for adolescents and young adults through the criminal code in SICA member countries was approved. The security commission accepted the road map for developing the Multi-sectorial Regional Plan against Organized Crime, which will begin with a fact-finding process and will end with a draft plan in the first half of 2017. The head of the Panamanian delegation thanked Costa Rica for the forum it provided during its rotating presidency for coordinating with Panama to develop a working agenda aimed at ensuring a proper follow-through on these efforts when it is Panama’s turn to assume the rotating presidency of SICA in the second half of 2017. Deputy Minister Del Rosario took the opportunity to make an announcement about the preparations for World Youth Day, which will be held in Panama in 2019. Panama will give periodic updates to the Central American Security Commission about the planning for the event from a security and migration standpoint, in order to ensure that it is a success for the entire region. The Central American Security Commission is made up of deputy foreign relations ministers and deputy ministers of security from SICA member states. The commission was created by the Framework Treaty on Democratic Security in Central America, signed in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, on December 15, 1995. Said treaty instituted the Central American Democratic Security Model, which is based on democracy, the strengthening of democratic institutions, the rule of law, and the existence of governments elected through universal suffrage, with free and secret voting and unlimited respect for human rights in the nations of Central America.last_img read more

 

Closing culture gaps

first_imgIf I asked you to describe your credit union’s culture, what would you say? If you weren’t sure how to answer that question, where would you look for help in doing so?Many people would consult things like mission statements, core values and guiding principles. And the words and phrases found therein do provide insights on what I refer to as the “professed culture,” the one the authors would like to have.In my experience most mission statements and other such foundational documents have two things in common:They all sound good.They have little or no impact on employee behavior.So where would you look to see evidence of the actual culture? That culture—the only culture you have—is reflected in the behavior of people working in your organization. continue reading » 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

 

Tomato, tomato

first_imgWhen I moved to Seattle in 2012, the craft beer scene was well established, but in the years since, it has really boomed. Small breweries have popped up all over town. They open shop around the corner from competitors. They cram into spaces so small, you couldn’t park a car in them. But, on any random weekend afternoon, they’re all busy—really busy. We’re talking lines out the door.It seems like every new brewery is a big success. I mean, people like beer. And in a densely populated city, one that’s growing by 1000+ people every week, each new brewery immediately becomes a new neighborhood hot spot. Maybe one day Seattle will get oversaturated with craft beer, but it doesn’t seem likely anytime soon. Back to beer in a minute.I recently read a Business Insider article in which the author presents the idea that Millennials, as a generation, are “psychologically scarred” by their experience having come of age during The Great Recession. And, that because of their experience, Millennials have unique consumer preferences that sometimes have severely negative impacts on well-established American companies and industries. You’ve probably heard it all before. But what caught my attention was that the author comes to the conclusion that Millennials aren’t responsible for their industry-killing ways, but that it’s actually their Baby Boomer parents who created the conditions they grew out of. continue reading » 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

 

ClientEarth, PIRC give cautious welcome to s172 proposals

first_img“If they are material, the law already requires these risks to be reported, but it is good to see the FRC start to catch up and provide some clarity.”Alan MacDougall, managing director at Pensions & Investment Research Consultants (PIRC), said: “We welcome the revision to the FRC guidance that now corresponds with the position of the law.”Last year, PIRC accused the FRC of failing to reflect the requirements of the Companies Act in its strategic report guidance.MacDougall told IPE: “The error seems to have occurred due to the prior guidance transcribing only the short title of the section heading of s172, rather than the full content of the section itself.”The FRC rejected the claims in a strongly worded rebuttal letter.The updated guidance from the FRC coincided with the release in July by the European Union of non-binding Guidelines on Non-financial Reporting.Although the EU directive addresses climate-change disclosure, it is possible for a company to comply with its requirements by complying with a comparable reporting framework.All UK-incorporated companies are required to prepare a strategic report as part of their annual report unless they are exempt. The report is supposed to contain an overview of the company and explore the principal risks that it faces.The collapse of BHS and the impact on the firm’s pension scheme has shifted the focus to s172 in recent months. In particular, s172 refers to the duty on directors to have regard to “the interests of the company’s employees”.In addition, environmental campaigners such as ClientEarth have latched on to s172 as a means of forcing companies to report on climate-change risk.Last year, ClientEarth lawyers brought two regulatory complaints against Cairn Energy and SOCO International, alleging that the two companies had failed to report adequately on climate-change-related risks in their 2015 strategic reports.The FRC has refused to disclose its findings on those complaints, citing confidentiality.The new sections of the draft guidance require businesses to report on the effect of “the risks and opportunities” arising from environmental factors.The disclosures also require directors to report on the effect of “long-term systemic risks” caused by, for example, climate change or changing technology.Meanwhile, ClientEarth has also urged the FRC to be more ambitious with the final draft of its new guidance and embrace the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).Alice Garton said: “As an industry-led global initiative, which has received widespread support, the TCFD’s work provides an excellent starting point to help companies meet their existing legal duties.”The FRC, she added, “should be making the most of it”.Interested parties have until 24 October to comment on the new guidance. Campaigners have given a cautious welcome to proposals from the UK’s Financial Reporting Council (FRC) to update its guidance on the contents of a company’s strategic report.The update follows criticism of the FRC over a perceived failure to reflect existing UK laws in its guidance for non-financial reporting.Section 172 (s172) of the Companies Act 2006 puts a duty on UK company directors to take decisions that promote the success of the company “for the benefit of its members”.ClientEarth lawyer Alice Garton said in a statement: “Climate change and the clean energy transition are creating clearly foreseeable risks for many companies.last_img read more

Cricket News India vs Australia 1st Test highlights: Kohli’s side need six wickets for famous win

first_img Pujara steers Nathan Lyon to the third man fence and brings up a brilliant fifty. What a champion. What a time he is having in Adelaide. His knocks could potentially be match-winning. 05:04 (IST) Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In WICKET! Lyon gets another five-wicket haul against India. He is simply sensational. Rahane attempts the reverse sweep and is caught at backward point by Mitchell Starc. India are not finishing it according to the plan. Marsh brings up the 100 in style for Australia by flicking Bumrah off his pads to the deep midwicket fence. Australia need him to survive.  08:14 (IST) 12:15 (IST) 08:46 (IST) 06:37 (IST) Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In 06:21 (IST) Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In Ishant and Bumrah are bowling tight lines but how much will the no-ball affect the Indian morale? If they have to win this Test match, they cannot afford these mistakes.  Starc finally gets the bouncer right and Ishant departs for 0. India are all out for 307 and the target for Australia is 323. It will be a monumental effort if they can pull it off.  Marsh and Handscomb are steadying the ship. Australia will need this partnership to thrive if they have stay in the contest. At the moment, it is advantage India.  Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In Rishabh Pant has been dismissed by Nathan Lyon. The bowler gets the last laugh and his fourth wicket. However, India’s lead is near 300. 06:59 (IST) DRAMA first up! Ishant Sharma gets the ball to jag back in and it raps Finch on the pads. India appeal and umpire Kumar Dharmasena gives it out. Virat Kohli and India celebrate and Finch reviews. It is a no-ball by Ishant. The front foot was on the line and there is nothing behind it. The decision has been overturned. Finch gets off the pair with a clip to deep midwicket.  05:21 (IST) 07:36 (IST) Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In 09:54 (IST) 10:12 (IST) Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In WICKET! At the stroke of tea, Ashwin gets Finch and Australia suffer a crucial blow. He should have reviewed this though as there was no bat or pad. Australia are 28/1, needing another 295 runs for victory.  Ajinkya Rahane is intent on sweeping while Ashwin is solid in defence. If India can maintain the momentum, they can insert Australia in for the final session and go for the kill.  Only 20 minutes remain for the day to end. Australia will be hoping to stay unscathed and put up a better fight on day 5 of the Test.  Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In 12:00 (IST) Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In 11:07 (IST) 13:06 (IST) Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In No hat-trick for Nathan Lyon but India’s tail have been simply woeful. They should have ensured that they got the lead over 350. Now, this total is somewhat middling but with Australia’s batting woes, this total could be more than enough.  Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In WICKET! Nathan Lyon, the GOAT, is on a hat-trick now. Brainless batting from Shami. He slogs this flighted delivery to deep midwicket and Marcus Harris takes the catch now. That will be lunch on day 4 and India are in a great position thanks to fifties from Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara. However, unless Australia do not run through the tail, Australia will be chasing a total in the range of 300-350 WICKET! Another poor shot by an Australian batsman. Short ball and it climbs up, it cramps Handscomb for room as he miscues the pull shot and it is an easy catch for mid wicket. Handscomb c Pujara b Shami 14. center_img 12:39 (IST) A warm welcome to day 4 of the Adelaide Test. Conditions are slightly overcast but situation is much better as compared to yesterday. Play will begin early today to make up for all the time lost due to rain. Mitchell Starc has opened proceedings and Ajinkya Rahane plays the over out without any problem. Both Khawaja and Shaun Marsh are looking to steady the innings. This is a massive opportunity for Marsh, in particular, to turn his fortunes around after a woeful 2018. WICKET! Ashwin falls and Starc gets his man. Short ball on middle and leg stump, Ashwin mistimes the pull shot and holes out to deep square leg. Australia are now into the tail.  08:50 (IST) Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In 05:59 (IST) Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In 08:22 (IST) 05:08 (IST) Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In 09:20 (IST) New Delhi: Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane struck confident fifties as India extended their advantage on the fourth day of the Adelaide Test. Pujara was dismissed for 71 while Rahane smashed an attractive fifty but Nathan Lyon ran through the lower order to pick up 6/122 as Australia were set a target of 323. Aaron Finch was given LBW on the second ball but had the decision overturned when Ishant Sharma overstepped. Both Finch and Marcus Harris gave a steady start but both fell in quick succession. Shaun Marsh has been solid and he will be the key for Australia on the final day. (SCORECARD) Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In 10:50 (IST) Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In 07:15 (IST) Starc is really struggling to control his radar with the new ball and this is hurting Australia. India’s lead inches to 250. This passage of play is taking the game away totally from the hosts.  WICKET! Rohit Sharma’s poor Test ends. He comes down the track to Nathan Lyon but gets a big inside edge onto the pad and silly point takes the catch. Australia are boosting themselves with these couple of wickets but there is still a major task in hand as the lead nears 300. 11:16 (IST) Total brain-fade from Usman Khawaja. Ashwin floated the delivery up and the left-hander danced down the track to loft it over extra cover, he ends up miscuing it and the ball sails to deep extra cover where Rohit Sharma takes it. Unnecessary shot from Khawaja. WICKET! Finally, Australia have a wicket and it is just reward for Nathan Lyon’s persistance. He bowls it outside off and gets this delivery to kick up from the deck, Pujara looks to pad it away and the ball takes the glove and short leg takes the catch. Ends a fabulous resistance from Pujara and he has put India on top.  Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In 09:07 (IST) That will be stumps on day 4. Marsh and Head have done really well and these two will be the key if Australia are to pull off an impropable win. For India, they need six wickets for a famous win.  09:36 (IST) 08:39 (IST) 08:54 (IST) For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In Shami gets the big wicket of Marcus Harris. The batsman is furious with that stroke. He pushes at a ball that holds it’s line outside off and the edge is taken by Pant. Sensational stuff from Shami and India close in 05:52 (IST) Marcus Harris gets going with a boundary. The shot was pretty unique though. Back knee bends as he caresses the drive past backward point. A bit of the late Phillip Highes in that shot.  Rahane and Pujara are slowly grinding Australia to the ground. The hosts are probably waiting for the new ball in order to strike. That represents Australia’s only hope as they look to take some quick wickets.  12:55 (IST) Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In 08:52 (IST) The partnership between Pujara and Rahane is worth 50 runs. This is the partnership which could see India reach safety in Adelaide. The wicket is offering plenty of turn and bounce which could make Ashwin a lethal entity here.  Brilliant shot from Cheteshwar Pujara. Hazlewood floats a full delivery and in the slot outside off, Pujara presents the full face of the bat and laces an exquisite cover drive to the deep cover fence. Next ball, he gets another boundary to third man as the ball squirts off the outside edge. Hazlewood is not impressed.  Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara have taken the lead to 200. Rahane has been given OUT caught-behind and the batsman reviews. There is no bat or glove involved and the ball is missing leg stump as well. To add salt to the wounds, Rahane pulls the next ball to the deep midwicket fence.  Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In What a dynamic start after the lunch break for Rishabh Pant. He blasts Nathan Lyon for three fours and a huge six over deep mid wicket as India zoom towards a 300-run lead.  Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked Inlast_img read more
