Venezuela, Colombia Sign Drug Cooperation Pact

first_imgBy Dialogo January 28, 2011 Venezuelan and Colombian ministers met in Venezuela on 26 January to sign an agreement to jointly fight drug trafficking, in a sign of warming relations between the two nations often at odds with one another. Venezuela’s Interior Minister Tarek El Aissami and Colombian Defense Minister Rodrigo Rivera said the pact provides “assistance and information exchange to dismantle criminal groups, control of chemicals used to produce narcotics and efforts to prevent money laundering.” Colombia President Juan Manuel Santos and his Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez will meet soon, at a date yet to be set, to further expand relations and endorse the agreements reached by their ministers in a number of fields, officials said. Known as the Canaima Act, the agreement also calls for joint operations “by land, sea and air” to combat the scourge of drug trafficking. “We’ve achieved significant results in a short period time against these criminal groups,” said El Aissami, noting a number of arrests and drug seizures stemming from intelligence sharing. The two countries have enjoyed warming relations in recent months, since the election of Santos, who restored diplomatic ties with Venezuela. Relations had broken down in July 2010 after then-Colombian leader Alvaro Uribe accused Caracas of harboring leftist Colombian rebels.last_img read more

Lawyers do well in state races

first_img October 1, 2002 Regular News Lawyers do well in state races Lawyers do well in state racescenter_img Lawyers running for Florida House and Senate were more successful than not in the September 10 primary, according to state election returns.Of the 72 Bar members who filed for legislative seats this year, 33 were involved in the primary. (Of the 72 lawyers, 11 were re-elected without opposition, and the remainder, along with the winners of the primary, will be on the November ballot.)The 33 attorneys were vying in 24 different primaries for House and Senate seats. Overall, 17 attorneys won and 16 lost, although that number downplays the success of lawyers in the primary because several races had two or three lawyer candidates for voters to chose from.Looked at another way, of the 24 races where lawyers were on the ballot, they won 17 of the primaries and only in seven races were the attorneys rejected.None of the primaries was a final victory for any of the candidates, as they all have opposition in the general election. However, many face only minor party or write-in opposition, which traditionally has fared poorly in state elections. Senate Contests Here are the results for Senate primaries: • In District 7, Rep. Evelyn Lynn, R-Ormond Beach, got 52.3 percent of the vote in defeating attorney and former Rep.

Carlos Lacasa, R-Miami, and a third candidate were defeated by Sen. Alex Diaz de la Portilla, R-Miami in the Republican primary. De la Portilla got 49.2 percent, while Lacasa got 42.1 percent. • In District 39, former Rep. Larcenia J. Bullard edged out attorney and former Rep. Ron Saunders 24.9 to 24.6 percent in a five-way Democratic primary that included Rep. Cindy Lerner, D-Miami, and former Rep. John Cosgrove, both lawyers. House Primaries Here are the results for the House primaries: • In District 26, attorney Pat Patterson got 72 percent of the vote in the Republican primary against Bob Dahlen. He faces a Democrat and Libertarian on the November ballot. • In District 33, attorneys Dean Mosley and Michael K.

He faces attorney and Democrat Linda I. Parnell and a Libertarian in November. • In District 86, attorney Barry Silver was defeated in the Democratic primary by Rep. Anne Gannon, D-Delray Beach, 62.7 to 37.3 percent. • In District 87, attorney Adam Hasner got 30 percent of the vote, just more than attorney Peter Feaman and one other candidate in the four-way Republican primary. He faces a Democrat and Libertarian in November. • In District 89, attorney Elliot Shaw got 57.5 percent of the vote to defeat one other candidate in the Republican primary. He faces a Democrat and Libertarian in November. • In District 104, attorney Yolly Roberson pulled in 29.8 percent of the vote to win the five-way Democratic primary.

OurHarvest: Long Island’s Online Farmer’s Market Takes Root

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York It’s early Monday morning. A driver is on his way to the East End where he’ll be stopping at several different farms for a variety of different products. One farm might have asparagus. One stop is the North Fork Chocolate Company. He’ll get North Fork potato chips. He’ll stop at Wickhams Fruit Farm and pick up beefsteak tomatoes.Those tomatoes, harvested at peak ripeness just before he arrives, will be sliced into a salad that night, with fresh gourmet goat cheese along with Long Island littleneck clams hand-dug that very morning. This is a farmer’s market meal, bought and paid for online. It’s a new model, a modern way to eat the way we did hundreds of years ago.The idea for OurHarvest, a 2-year-old online farmer’s market that procures reasonably priced fresh items from farms across Long Island, upstate New York and parts of New Jersey, and sells them at pop-up pick-up locations across the island, is the brainchild of Scott Reich, 32, and Michael Winik, 33. The two friends, who met at Wheatley High School in East Hills and were college roommates at the University of Pennsylvania, left the legal and financial world, respectively, to follow their childhood dream of opening business together. The roads that led them to OurHarvest were made of love, curiosity, an expanding understanding of the food cycle and a desire to contribute to the greater community.“We never knew exactly what that might look like but we wanted to do something that we felt had a strong social mission that we felt could give back to society and improve the way we do something in a big way,” says Reich.A self-described foodie, Winik sought to create a business that fed his passion for fresh, delicious, and interesting fare. Reich took a longer route. He grew up “eating Big Macs after soccer games,” but experienced an increasing awareness as he reached adulthood about the effects poor nutrition could have not only on his body, but on society. After the release of books such as The Omnivore’s Dilemma, Fast Food Nation and documentaries like Food, Inc., the food cycle has come under scrutiny in a way that hadn’t interested the public since Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle sparked reforms in the meatpacking industry a century ago.In this age of increasing food awareness, Community Supported Agriculture and food co-ops have become popular with customers supporting individual farms by paying a subscription for their crops and picking up a box at prescribed times of harvested goods. These prepaid orders help the local farms run, and people have access to assortments of food items that are fresher than what’s sold at supermarkets. However, there are some unavoidable downsides, such as not knowing what the farm will produce from week to week, what can be an expensive commitment, and the limitations of having access to only what that farm can produce. They are also seasonal.OurHarvest sought to answer for these downsides, while still supporting the local farm economy and providing access to fresh, healthy goods.“What we tried to do was to harken back to the old days and the idea that the community can come together to create an experience where we all relate to one another,” Reich told the Press. “We’re all a part of a local, sustainable food system that is natural, doesn’t have any of the weird stuff that’s been concocted over the last hundred years to make food last longer or taste better or look different and so this is a very, we think, authentic and creative way to bring us back to a time that had existed for a very long time.”MORE: It’s farmers’ market season! Find out if there’s one near youHere’s how it works.Let’s go back to Monday morning. OurHarvest employs a few team members who take to the road running routes to different suppliers to pick up the product. Craig Hecht, a team member, for example, will make his way to the East End. Customers have placed their orders for specific items from a variety of different farms and paid for them in advance online. Customers choose their pick-up location—14 in Nassau and one in Suffolk—and a set time window. OurHarvest, having relationships directly with the suppliers, picks up the product and brings it back to their warehouse in Roslyn, their only footprint. They dispense the orders at the pick-up locations on Long Island and through delivery in the city via Uber.“So the idea is that you shop when it’s convenient for you on your computer, your phone, your iPad, whatever it may be, and you pay for it and then you show up and show your receipt and pick it up,” says Reich. “You want to spend 10 minutes going over recipes, we’d be thrilled to do that with you. But if you’re like, ‘My kids are in the car, I gotta go,’ we’ll be happy to put the groceries in your trunk and send you on your way.“We keep it refrigerated for you,” he continues. “We try to make it a more convenient experience. A customer is able to get fresher, more high-quality products, still at an affordable price, in a more convenient way.”They got the goods: Our Harvest offers customizable online fresh produce deliveries (Photo by Rebecca Winik).Because OurHarvest doesn’t have the traditional infrastructure that a store does and can negotiate prices directly with local farms, they can keep prices lower than what customers would find in stores like Whole Foods, but still have access to produce that is local and incredibly fresh. In some cases, same-day fresh.“One of our team members is driving back from the city right now meeting some of our suppliers at Union Square,” Reich told the Press. “And the customers who ordered that food, no matter when they ordered it, it’s coming in fresh for them. So it’s not sitting here stocking it and hoping someone buys some chicken, for example.“Someone bought chicken and tomatoes and lettuce and tuna, whatever these products are, we literally are getting them within hours of getting it to them,” he continues. “So if we’re going to Wickham’s Fruit Farm and we’re picking up beefsteak tomatoes, they are literally harvesting them right before we get there.”This is in direct opposition to the supermarket model, where foods are mostly imported from across the country or internationally. That produce are shipped to warehouses, then put on trucks to be distributed days later. By the time the food reaches customers at supermarkets, the fruits and veggies are close to perishability, their quality compromised. Only the most discerning customers know exactly where they came from. And the local farmer is out of luck.“The challenge with that is that the local small family farm doesn’t necessarily benefit from that because the large distributor may not go to a small farm because it’s only 50 acres and they say they can’t produce enough to make it worth our while,” says Reich. “But those small family farmers are the bedrock of how we get our food and how our agricultural system has developed through the course of our nation’s history.”Through OurHarvest, that small farm is back in the game. But it has to be the right farm. OurHarvest has a series of criteria that suppliers must meet before they agree to sell their products, including price points, farming practices that include no antibiotics, chemicals, or hormones, no, or limited use, of pesticides (on a case-by-case basis, with oversight by a third party to make sure use is conservative), and quality.“It has to be, like, the best strawberry you’ve ever tasted,” Reich says.The third pillar of OurHarvest is their social mission. Compelled by the plight of the hungry here on Long Island, Reich and Winik wanted to create a company that helped people around them. Reich, a self-described “recovering” attorney with a strong background and interest in public service, authored the book The Power of Citizenship: Why JFK Matters to a New Generation. He is inspired by the idea that all citizens are connected and are a part of something bigger than themselves. And so they built a way to give back to the community into their very business model.“According to Feeding America [the leading hunger relief organization in the country], the numbers of people going hungry are staggering,” Reich says. “They estimate that approximately 1 in 6 Americans are food insecure, meaning they don’t know where their next meal is coming from or they’re simply undernourished. And here on Long Island…there are 110,000 kids who go to bed hungry each night. What a lot of people don’t appreciate is that in our midst, even in relatively affluent communities, there are people who are struggling.”For every order of $25, OurHarvest donates a meal to a food bank or food pantry through Long Island Cares, Island Harvest, The Interfaith Nutrition Network, and a host of individual pantries as part of their effort to create this sustainable system that not only brings access to this kind of food, but also helps our neighbors in need. They donate the same high-quality products they sell, not “the stuff that’s been frozen for three years or in a pantry for six years after someone’s trying to clean out their kitchen.” They have donated thousands of meals, according to Reich.So what’s next?Expansion. OurHarvest plans to keep adding pick-up locations to serve more of the public while keeping to the same model of local suppliers. They plan to branch out across Suffolk County, into all five boroughs and into Westchester. Their model is replicable in other regions as well.But food-savvy Long Islanders need not wait any longer. There are beefsteak tomatoes at peak ripeness, just a click away.last_img read more

FIFA investigate Chelsea over youth recruitment

first_imgParis, France | AFP | Premier League champions Chelsea are the subject of a FIFA investigation, reportedly for possible breaches over the signing of foreign youth players, world football’s governing said on Wednesday.“We can confirm that an investigation is ongoing,” a FIFA spokesperson told AFP. “However please note that we cannot provide any details concerning the matters under investigation.”According to The Times newspaper, FIFA were looking into “possible breaches of the regulations regarding the signing of young foreign players”, while Chelsea replied: “Chelsea FC complies with all FIFA statutes and regulations.”The alleged offences were reported to be “less serious” than the violations committed by Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid that prompted FIFA last year to issue the Spanish clubs with transfer bans. Chelsea were initially hit with a transfer embargo in 2009 following the transfer of Gael Kakuta from French club Lens, but the ruling was overturned following an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.They were also under investigation last year over the signing of Burkina Faso forward Bertrand Traore after images emerged of him playing for Chelsea when he was just 16 and before he received international clearance.Real and Atletico were barred from registering new players for two transfer windows in January 2016 for irregularities in the signing of foreign players under the age of 18.Real’s sanction was halved on appeal by CAS, allowing the European champions to recruit players this past summer, but Atletico are unable to sign anyone until January 2018.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
