Elite FUSINA Force Credited For Drop in Honduras Homicides

first_imgThe dramatic reduction in violence and improvement in public safety is attributable to the efforts of the elite security force, which officials launched in January 2014. “(FUSINA) has the capacity to confront organized crime groups as well as common delinquency,” explained Military Justice Lieutenant Colonel Santos Nolasco, a FUSINA spokesman, who went on to say that the organization was successful because of its “coordinated work.” The homicide rate in Honduras has dropped dramatically in recent years, and authorities credit the efforts of the National Inter-Agency Security Force (FUSINA), a special unit comprised of Military Troops, National Police agents, members of the Attorney General’s office, and other law enforcement agencies. The country’s homicide rate peaked in 2012, when Honduras recorded 86 killings per 100,000 residents. Since then, the rate of deadly violence has decreased steadily and significantly, to 75 homicides per 100,000 residents in 2013, then to 66 in 2014, and 56 in 2015. The security force is making the country safer in a variety of ways, including seizing large numbers of illegal firearms, drugs, and cash that criminal organizations use to finance their illicit enterprises. Since its creation, FUSINA has seized 5,769 firearms, 612 kilos of cocaine, and more than 297 million lempiras (approximately $13.15 million) from criminal suspects, in addition to recovering more than 500 stolen vehicles and motorcycles. Overall, the interagency unit has arrested more than 6,000 suspects. Civilian population’s role While all of the security force’s accomplishments are important, FUSINA’s most crucial achievement, according to Lt. Col. Nolasco, is the dramatic reduction in deadly violence. The security force did not accomplish this on its own. Assistance from the civilian population, which provides security forces with information, is crucial to FUSINA’s success, the Lieutenant Colonel explained. FUSINA successes FUSINA’s leadership has set apart time to review and evaluate operations going forward. “Logically, we will continue to implement the strategies that brought about good outcomes. Those that gave us partial results will necessarily have to be modified,” explained Lt. Col. Nolasco. “This combat is dynamic, not static. As delinquency modifies itself, so will we.” The effort the Government makes is great by supporting different institutions with resources: Security, Defense, Public Ministry… Civil society by contributing information helps to gradually reduce the rate of organized crime activities, paying the people with medicine for hospitals and education to gradually improve the infrastructure. I would like to join FUSINA. What do you need to join? i just read this article and it so full of lies or you really guys ignore a lot of the real true, the president that we currently have, has created a parallel military arm of his practices he just wants to stay four more years in power.and FUSSINA. its just one of the ways he is about to accomplish that, he has control of the Congress and control of the Electoral Supreme Court the Public Ministry (in charge of the prosecute against possible violators ), little by little he is accomplishing that and the people of my country is dying and corruption and assassinations is rampant, the biggest human right Activist and ecologist Berta Caseres who received The Goldman Environmental Prize in 2015, for “a grassroots campaign that successfully pressured the world’s largest dam builder to pull out of the Agua Zarca Dam” at the Río Gualcarque. got shot in the middle of the night and military soldiers where among the shooters and to this date no one has been found guilty yet don’t believe none of the lies of this article call Honduras Human right ministry or the opposition parties and the will feel you with all the things that i was not able to remember. By Dialogo February 11, 2016 “The cooperation of the population is also behind this achievement,” Lt. Col. Nolasco stated. “This will be part of our focus in 2016. We want society to get involved in these efforts one hundred percent.” FUSINA encourages residents to report crimes they have been victims of or have witnessed. “This,” Lt. Col. Nolasco said, “reduces impunity, which is one of our goals.” While the security force has made much progress in improving public safety, it remains vigilant. “We understand we still face challenges. Honduras is still going through a difficult situation. Society should understand this. The state must continue to do its part as well. And this is how we are moving forward, fully aware of the difficulties, but with a renewed commitment, more so after seeing the positive results. “Our work will be better integrated with more human resources, with more experience, with more technology,” Lt. Col Nolasco stated. “Therefore the results this year will have to be better as well. Again, we want to continue to carry out this work with the support of the population, and be stronger in 2016. And we will do it like we have done it so far, together.” And in an effort to combat drug trafficking, FUSINA helped destroy 56 clandestine landing strips used for narcoflights. FUSINA forces also dismantled almost a dozen “blind spots” — illegal crossing points used by smugglers to move animals, money, drugs, and people — along the border between Honduras and Guatemala. Confronting violent street gangs, such as Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) and Barrio 18 (M-18), is one of the FUSINA’s most important missions. The security force maintains a strong and constant presence in 115 communities with high levels of delinquency provoked by gangs. It carries out motorized and foot patrols to identify and capture members of such groups. Additionally, it has launched an education program in schools around the country with the purpose of training children and teens to resist getting involved with gangs. last_img read more

MLAX : Megill leads dominant defensive performance in win over Albany

first_img Published on February 19, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Ryne: [email protected] Miles Thompson had nowhere to go. The Albany attack was helpless as he tried to break free from Brian Megill, who met him with shove after shove in the back.Finally, Thompson crumbled under the constant pressure, flipping the ball high in the air across the field with no recipient in sight before getting knocked to the ground by Megill.And as the ball rolled off the right sideline, the Syracuse defender motioned down the field with his right hand to signal the Orange would take possession with a chance to add to its six-goal lead.‘I thought Megill did a great job on Miles and really kind of tied him up a little bit,’ Albany head coach Scott Marr said. ‘Miles is our quarterback, and so we see seven goals. If Miles has a day, maybe we’re at 10 or 11 goals, and it’s a different story.’A dominant performance by the Syracuse defense helped carry the No. 7 Orange to a 12-7 victory over Albany in the Carrier Dome. The unit held Albany scoreless in the second and third quarters to build an insurmountable eight-goal lead heading into the final 15 minutes. The Orange kept its opponent off the scoreboard for a 40-minute span that stretched across all four quarters.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLed by Megill, who forced five turnovers and blanketed Albany’s top playmaker, the defense buckled down and limited the Great Danes’ opportunities after they jumped out to a 2-0 lead nearly eight minutes into the game.With SU in a man-down situation after two illegal body check penalties, Albany capitalized for two goals in eight seconds. Albany was playing with confidence and thinking upset.But SU didn’t panic and goaltender Matt Lerman gathered the defense for a quick talk.‘I have a great defense in front of me,’ Lerman said. ‘We went down a couple men early, and Albany got their first quick one, and I just looked at Brian and brought everyone in and I told them to keep playing some good, solid defense and stay out of the penalty box, and I’ll have their back.’Lerman and the defense kept Albany off the board for the final seven minutes of the opening quarter. Then the Orange offense started to click and evened the score at 2-2 heading into the second quarter.That’s when the Syracuse defense ratcheted up the pressure even more. After firing off 12 shots in the first period, the Great Danes managed just four in the next 15 minutes.Marr pinpointed his team’s lack of execution on offense in the second quarter as the difference in the game. The Great Danes continuously failed to get quality scoring chances.Meanwhile, Syracuse’s offense registered six goals in the period to make up for the slow start.‘They score a quick two on you, you think they’re going to try and get more,’ SU attack Tommy Palasek said, ‘but they held on down there and gave us the chance to score goals.’After halftime, with a six-goal lead, Syracuse continued its brilliant performance on defense. Megill harassed Thompson into his frustrating turnover early.And then the SU defender prevented a golden opportunity for Albany on its next possession.Megill poked the ball away as Albany moved toward the net with what would have been a one-on-one with goaltender Dominic Lamolinara. The SU defender then scooped up the loose ball and cleared it, keeping the Great Danes from getting a shot from in close.‘I thought our matchups were pretty good and the game plan going in,’ SU head coach John Desko said. ‘We really didn’t want to let those guys get too close to the goal because they are such good finishers.’By the time Albany finally scored its third goal about four minutes into the fourth quarter, the once animated Great Danes’ sideline was emotionless aside from a few coaches clapping.Marr and the Great Danes knew the game was already over. The scoreless second quarter was too much to overcome.And Marr could only wonder how the story would have been different if the Syracuse defense hadn’t stifled his team in that decisive period.‘We just executed poorly, especially on the offensive end,’ Marr said. ‘And I think if we had done a better job of that in the second quarter, the game wouldn’t have gotten out of hand.‘We would have been in it at halftime, and it would have been a different game.’[email protected] Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Amazon says email to employees banning TikTok was a mistake

first_imgRoughly five hours after an internal email went out to employees telling them to delete the popular video app TikTok from their phones, Amazon appeared to backtrack, calling the ban a mistake.“This morning’s email to some of our employees was sent in error. There is no change to our policies right now with regard to TikTok,” Amazon emailed reporters just before 5 p.m. Eastern time. Spokeswoman Jaci Anderson declined to answer questions about what happened.The initial internal email, which was disseminated widely online, told employees to delete TikTok, a video app increasingly popular with young people but also the focus of intensifying national-security and geopolitical concerns because of its Chinese ownership. The email cited “security risks” of the app.An Amazon employee who confirmed receipt of the initial email but was not authorized to speak publicly had not seen a retraction at the time of Amazon’s backtrack.Amazon is the second-largest U.S. private employer after Walmart, with with more than 840,000 employees worldwide, and moving against TikTok would have escalated pressure on the app. It is banned on employee phones by the U.S. military and the company is subject to a national-security review of its merger history. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said this week that the government was “certainly looking” at banning the app.Chinese internet giant ByteDance owns TikTok, which is designed for users outside of China; it also makes a Chinese version called Douyin. Like YouTube, TikTok relies on its users for the videos that populate its app. It has a reputation for fun, goofy videos and is popular with young people, including millions of American users. But it has racked up concerns such as censorship of videos, including those critical of the Chinese government; the threat of sharing user data with Chinese officials; and violating kids’ privacy.TikTok said earlier in the day that Amazon did not notify it before sending the initial email around midday Eastern. That email read, “The TikTok app is no longer permitted on mobile devices that access Amazon email.” To retain mobile access to company email, employees had to delete the TikTok app by the end of the day.“We still do not understand their concerns,” TikTok said at the time, adding that the company would welcome a dialogue to address Amazon’s issues. A spokeswoman did not immediately reply to a request for comment Friday evening.TikTok has been trying to appease critics in the U.S. and distance itself from its Chinese roots, but finds itself caught in an increasingly sticky geopolitical web.It recently named a new CEO, former Disney executive Kevin Mayer, which experts said could help it navigate U.S. regulators. And it is stopping operations in Hong Kong because of a new Chinese national security law that led Facebook, Google and Twitter to also stop providing user data to Hong Kong authorities.Pompeo said the government remained concerned about TikTok and referred to the administration’s crackdown on Chinese telecom firms Huawei and ZTE. The government has tried to convince allies to root Huawei out of telecom networks, saying the company is a national-security threat, with mixed success; Trump has also said he was willing to use Huawei as a bargaining chip in trade talks. Huawei has denied that it enables spying for the Chinese government.“With respect to Chinese apps on people’s cell phones, I can assure you the United States will get this one right too,” Pompeo said, and added that if users downloaded the app their private information would be “in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party.”A U.S. national-security agency has been reviewing ByteDance’s purchase of TikTok’s precursor, Meanwhile, privacy groups say TikTok has been violating children’s privacy, even after the Federal Trade Commission fined the company in 2019 for collecting personal information from children without their parents’ consent.Amazon may have been concerned about a Chinese-owned app’s access to employee data, said Susan Ariel Aaronson, a professor at George Washington University and a data governance and national-security expert. China, according to the U.S. government, regularly steals U.S. intellectual property.Part of Amazon’s motivation with the ban, now apparently reversed, may also have been political, Aaronson said, since Amazon “doesn’t want to alienate the Trump administration.”Amazon and its founder, Jeff Bezos, are frequent targets of President Donald Trump. Bezos personally owns The Washington Post, which Trump has referred to as “fake news” whenever it publishes unfavorable stories about him. Last year, Amazon sued the U.S. government, saying that Trump’s “personal vendetta” against Amazon, Bezos and the Post, led it to lose a $10 billion cloud computing contract with the Pentagon to rival Microsoft. Meanwhile, federal regulators as well as Congress are pursuing antitrust investigations at Amazon as well as other tech giants.TikTok has content-moderation policies, like any social network, but says its moderation team for the U.S. is led out of California and it doesn’t censor videos based on topics sensitive to China and would not, even if the Chinese government asked it to. As for sharing U.S. user data with the Chinese government, the company says it stores U.S. user data in the U.S. and Singapore, not China; that its data centers are outside of China; and it would not give the government access to U.S. user data even if asked.Concerns about China are not limited to the U.S. India this month banned dozens of Chinese apps, including TikTok, because of tensions between the countries. India cited privacy concerns that threatened India’s sovereignty and security for the ban. India is one of TikTok’s largest markets and had previously briefly banned the app in 2019 because of worries about children and sexual content.last_img read more

These were the sentiments expressed by Siyabonga Cwele, minister of telecommunications and postal services, at the 2017 Seeds for the Future launch on Thursday, 12 October.For the second year running technology giant Huawei’s CSR programme, Seeds for the Future, is sending 10 South African students on a two-week study and cultural exchange trip to China. This was made possible by the partnership between Huawei and the Department of Telecommunications and Postal Services, with the support of the Chinese embassy.“We’re very happy with the positive feedback received from students who participated last year, many of whom are now contributing to the growth of our economy,” Cwele said, speaking to the second group of students, who were in the audience.“We cannot grow our economy if we don’t improve our education, our skills and opportunities for employment. We need to focus on ensuring that we’re not left behind in the digital era by upskilling our workforce.”On 12 October 2017, Telecommunications and Postal Services Minister Siyabonga Cwele shares words of encouragement with the students heading off to China, letting them know that they are all ambassadors of South Africa. The 10 students were selected from some of South Africa’s leading tertiary institutions, such as Tshwane University of Technology, North-West University, Durban University of Technology, Central University of Technology and Nelson Mandela University.They will get training in cutting-edge technologies such as 5G, LTE and cloud computing to help develop South Africa’s telecommunications industry.Chinese ambassador to South Africa Lin Songtian wished the students well on their trip and encouraged them to absorb and learn as much as they could from their experience and the technologies they’d be exposed.“When you come back to South Africa, you can use this knowledge to improve the digital economy and to grow the local telecommunications industry.”The 10 students were selected from some of South Africa’s leading tertiary institutions, such as Tshwane University of Technology, North-West University, Durban University of Technology, Central University of Technology and Nelson Mandela University.Work hard, play hardMuch of the experience will be about furthering their studies and getting a look at the inner workings of Huawei’s most advanced labs, located in the capital city of Beijing and at the company’s headquarters in Shenzhen.But it’s not only about the work.Like South Africa, China has a rich and diverse culture, along with a colourful history.During their two-week stay, the students will get the opportunity to take in the sights and smells of China, such as the Great Wall, which stretches more than 21,000 kilometres across 15 of the country’s 23 provinces.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

In Case of Emergency, Please Use Twitter

first_imgFacebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Tags:#Trends#twitter#web The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification sarah perezcenter_img Related Posts The Safe America Foundation, a national safety group working with the U.S. government, announced yesterday that text messaging, social networking sites, and Twitter could help families stay in touch in the wake of a disaster. Although Twitter hasn’t always been known for its stability, in emergency situations when phone lines and other traditional communication avenues are down, social networking sites like it and others could turn into reliable backup methods for reaching loved ones. Safe America is an Atlanta-based group working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on a campaign called “Drill Down for Safety.” The program’s focus is to make people more aware of the alternative methods for communication which are available during emergency situations. According to the group’s spokeswoman, Carla Shaw, people should pre-load emergency messages on their cell phones as well as useful communication websites. Families should also discuss among themselves how they will use these tools to contact each other if there is an emergency situation. “We want people to rehearse what would you do, and what other forms of communication would you have at your disposal,” says Shaw.For about a month, starting on September 11th and lasting through mid-October, 20,000 people are expected to participate in emergency training drills where the use of these alternative tools will be practiced. Some of the participants are volunteers who signed up on Safe America’s website but the majority will be employees from major companies including UPS,  Motorola, Allstate, and Office Depot where testing will be done on the companies’ campuses. For many technology early adopters, turning to a communication platform like Twitter or SMS when the landlines go down would probably be second nature, but if your friends and family don’t know how to access Twitter’s website, how to find and follow your account, or how to reply to your posts, then tweeting “Help!” or “I’m safe” isn’t going to be all that useful. That’s why it’s encouraging to see a national safety group like this focusing on training large groups on how modern social networking sites and Twitter can be used to share emergency information even when you can’t make a phone call. The only problem with this plan is the fact that when disaster strikes, cellular networks often go down too. That makes wireless communication – whether a phone call, a text, or something requiring data traffic – impossible. And then it’s back to square one.

The Filmmaking (and Photography) Companion App That’s Actually Useful

first_imgLow-budget or DIY filmmaking can leave you a few hands short of your ideal setup. The GH5’s companion app solves the problem.Companion apps are often pointless additions to make it feel like you’re getting more for your equipment-purchasing money. They rarely offer any new features other than a visual representation of the user information found inside the hardware. Using the Xbox One app, for example, allows you to look at your friends list and what video game achievements you have unlocked — and to message your friends. However, that’s everything you can do with the hardware itself, and let’s be honest: if you’re going to message your friend, it’s not going to be through an Xbox iPhone app.Even when companion apps offer some functionality with the hardware or software, they work sporadically. I have an app that turns my iPhone into a remote control for my PC, which was an add-on for Blu-Ray software. By the time this app finally connects to the software so I can lower the volume, I could’ve just gotten up and turned it down myself. It’s only when you have to pay for an app that you start to see premium results.Therefore, two years ago when I found out that the GH4, along with many of Panasonic’s GH series had a complimentary app you could download for free, I was somewhat skeptical of its usefulness. Thankfully, I could not have been more wrong.Using the GH5, let’s have a look at how useful Panasonic’s Image App is.SetupIf you haven’t downloaded the app, you can do so from your phone manufacturer’s App Store (Apple/Android). Once you’ve downloaded it, grab your GH5 and follow these steps.In the setup menu of the GH5, scroll down to Wi-Fi and hit enter.Ther are two sub-menus: Wi-Fi Function & Wi-Fi Setup. Select Wi-Fi Function > New Connection > Remote Shooting & View.With your smartphone or tablet, open the Wi-Fi settings, and select the Wi-Fi channel the camera allocates to you.With your phone now connected to the camera’s Wi-Fi signal, open the Image App — you are now linked to your camera.As a side note, if you’re slightly paranoid about open connections, you can set a password for the GH5’s wireless signal in the Wi-Fi Setup menu.The AppOn the surface, the app looks like it’s mainly for social photographers. You can transfer images, make a photo collage, geotag your photographs, and more.However, we’re going to ignore these features for now since we want to know how the app can help filmmakers. To do this, we need to switch to the Live Control window.This part of the app is incredibly useful for self-shooters, vloggers, and filmmakers who work with skeleton crews. As you can see from the Live Control still below, you now have a portable monitor through which you can control all aspects of your camera.You’re not going to receive a 1080p video feed, but you do now have a mini monitor for frame reference. If you’re a vlogger, sometimes it can become tedious to use the small swivel LCD screen to frame your shot — especially if you’re sitting far away from the camera, but not with this app. There’s even a setting that can assist those who vlog.In the menu setting, you can turn on Self Shot Mode, which will horizontally flip the feed, so when you move your hand from right to left, it appears the same way on the app to keep you from becoming disoriented when checking your composition.The app allows you to adjust the majority of the settings related to recording in video mode (these settings will change depending on which camera mode you are in). From shutter speed to white balance, settings changes no longer require you to touch the camera.The range of the camera’s wireless signal is also great. I was able to walk 26ft away from the camera before I lost the signal — and that was upstairs to downstairs. I can only imagine how useful this would be for shots when the camera needs to be inside something, like a fridge.In this example, if you find that when the actor opens the fridge door, you want a shallower depth of field, you can simply hit the F/SS button and change your aperture. There’s no need to remove the camera from its location to reset the shot. You can even change the settings while the camera is in record mode. This allows you to perform a rack aperture.One area where the app becomes troublesome is changing the focus. As with my computer playback app, by the time you have picked a focus point and gotten the camera to focus on it correctly, it would have been quicker to walk back over to the camera and adjust the focus yourself.Likewise, the playback function is slightly temperamental. When you attempt to press play, you get a pop-up warning: Depending on your smartphone or tablet model, normal playback may not be possible. It feels like this warning is there simply because playback is incredibly sporadic — rather than it being an issue with a user’s device. The file will either play or it won’t, and when a file does play, the playback can be choppy. This was with both an iPhone 7 and an iPad Air 2.As a final note, when comparing the image from the LCD to the feed on the app, the colors on the image from the app were a little washed out. Therefore you should only use the app as a reference tool. Otherwise, you’ll find your shots to be a lot darker than you intended.ConclusionWhile there are a few obsolete elements in the app (from a filmmaker’s perspective), I do think the app has earned a place on your phone or tablet. There are many tools for low-budget and DIY filmmaking — even more for photographers. It’s a perfect tool for filmmakers looking for an extra hand.Looking for more information on the GH5?
