Sail Cartagena de Indias 2014 promotes cooperation among Latin American navies

first_img More than 200,000 people visited the ships during the four days of the festival. Thousands of spectators watched different naval demonstrations. For example, about 2,500 people watched a dive by Colombian diver Orlando Duque, officials said. Naval crews and their guests attended a special culinary exhibition organized by the National Training Service (SENA). Some sailors also attended a concert in Plaza de la Aduana which featured performances by reggae ton musicians, including José Álvaro Osorio Alvin, who is also known as “J Alvin.” Spectators and sailors also enjoyed a performance by the Big Band of the Colombian National Navy. Sail Cartagena de Indias 2014 was the third edition of the quadrennial event. The first two took place in Cartagena in 2006 and 2010. The navies which participated in the Inter-American Naval Conference, held in Mexico in 2012, organized Sail Cartagena 2014. Organizing an event with sailing ships and sailors from around the world arriving in a port city located on Colombia’s Caribbean coast takes years of preparation and diplomatic efforts because these vessels are traversing the world training young navy cadets or participating in national and international events, the Colombian Military Portal reported on May 11, 2013. Naval vessels from throughout Latin America and other partner nation countries recently gathered in Colombia for Sail Cartagena de Indias 2014. The goal of the event, which took place from May 15 to May 19 in Cartagena Bay, was to strengthen international cooperation in the fight against drug trafficking, terrorism, and climate change. The Colombian National Navy hosted the event, which was attended by the navies of 12 countries, including Argentina, Chile, Honduras, Peru, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands. More than 1,600 sailors from the participating nations docked into Cartagena Bay on May 15, according to a written report from the National Navy of Colombia. Sail Cartagena de Indias 2014 was a good way to promote cooperation among Latin American navies and their partner nations, according to Oliva Posadas, the security analyst. “These kinds of events are always positive for citizenship and the participating nations,” he said. “This approximation between ships and soldiers of various nationalities and Latin American society is relevant because it becomes clear that hostilities are shared.” Authorities should continue to organize the naval festival and similar events. The Armed Forces of Latin America are strengthening their cooperation, sharing information and training, Oliva Posadas said. The opening ceremonies of the naval festival included a military parade in the bay featuring naval vessels and more than 500 sailors from the countries which participated in Sail Cartagena 2014. The sailors proudly wore the uniforms of their respective countries. The first vessel in the parade was the Colombian ARC training ship “Gloria,” which is used to train sailors. Following the ceremony, the crew members of the vessel disembarked to meet friends and family members for the first time in six months, Vanguardia.com reported on May 15. The Colombian National Navy organized a special event featuring dances and music native to each of the countries which participated in the parade. By Dialogo June 09, 2014 Colombian Defense Minister Juan Carlos Pinzón Bueno, accompanied by Argentinian Defense Minister Agustín Rossi, officially opened the event on May 17 at Parque de la Marina in Cartagena. Pinzón awarded the Colombian National Navy’s “Faith in the Cause” medal to participating ships during the opening ceremony. Pinzón reiterated to the visiting sailors that they are always welcome by the Armed Forces of Colombia, which will also “always count on them for their experience and knowledge.” The gathering of navies is meant to strengthen cooperative efforts in the fight against drug traffickers and terrorists, said Vice Admiral Leonardo Santamaría Gaitán, the commander of the Caribbean Naval Force. He served as the chief operating officer of the festival. “We are here to strengthen the ties of friendship and international cooperation with fraternal countries and nations with whom we share common interests such as combating different international threats,”Santamaría Gaitán said on the opening day of the naval festival. A diverse array of vessels Fighting multiple threats Military parade Strengthening ‘ties of friendship’ The security forces of Latin American countries are cooperating against multiple shared threats, said Javier Oliva Posadas, coordinator of the defense and national security degree program at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). “Climate change, terrorism and drug trafficking” are the main international geopolitical threats shared by Latin American countries and some of their partner nations, such as the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands, the security analyst said. Various organized crime and terrorism groups operate in Latin America. In Colombia, for example, there are Los Urabeños, and Los Rastrojos, and the terrorist organization the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) operate. Another terrorist group, the Shining Path, operates in Peru. The gangs Mara Salvatrucha, which is also known as MS-13, and 18th Street, which is also known as Barrio 18 and M-18, engage in criminal enterprises such as homicide, kidnapping, extortion, and micro drug trafficking in El Salvador and Honduras. These gangs also form alliances with the Sinaloa Cartel and Los Zetas, which are Mexican transnational criminal organizations. The naval festival featured a diverse array of vessels. For example, ARC training ship Gloria, which was built in Spain in 1968, is a sailing vessel with two square-rigged masts called a brig. More than 4,200 cadets and cabin boys in the National Navy have received training in this traveling school. Some ships are so large that sailors play soccer and softball and jog on the ship’s deck to stay in physical condition while the vessel deployed at sea. Mexico’s training ship is named “Cuauhtémoc.” It is also known as “The Ambassador and Gentleman of the Seas.” The vessel was built in Spain. It is a brig with three masts and 23 sails. The deck of the ship has been used for the graduation ceremonies of 31 graduating classes of officers from the Heroic Military Naval School. Cuauhtémoc has sailed 616,980 miles at 4,903 voyages.

Assessing emotional intelligence

first_img 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Dan BergerYou can learn the hard way or the smart way, and I’ve done both. And one of the most important lessons I’ve learned is that knowing how I react to things – and understanding how others react – is critical to succeeding as a leader. Even if you had the highest IQ in the room, success won’t come if you don’t control your emotions and understand others’.There is a business-speak term for this: emotional intelligence.Travis Bradberry, co-author of Emotional Intelligence 2.0, in a LinkedIn Pulse article, calls emotional intelligence “the foundation for a host of critical skills—it impacts most everything you do and say each day.” continue reading »last_img read more

Otsego County superintendents express COVID-19 school report card concerns

first_imgJust yesterday an attestation was added to the form that the districts must check off once they confirm with their county.   Superintendents are required to submit COVID-19 information to the state.  “If we do have any student testing, we have to report where that test is being placed,” Furman said.   “So, if we’re submitting, this information is accurate based on what we know,” Furman said. “If something else happens later, how is that going to impact superintendents.”  “Around three p.m. a lot of things are happening with student dismissals, meetings that are taking place,” Furman said. “So trying to meet that deadline was very difficult.”  But Gary Furman, Edmeston Central School District Superintendent, says the deadline is very tedious.   Both Furman and Carlin says the department of health sent an email saying  the submission time was extended to 4 p.m. and the attestation box will not be there, for now.   But Otsego County superintendents say the site allowing them to mark their numbers is hard to use. “Every lab that is licensed by New York state to test for COVID reports to the Department of Health all the results every day, including the names, the ages and the addresses of the individuals that are tested,” said Gareth Rhodes, Deputy Superintendent of Department of Financial Services.  center_img Governor Andrew Cuomo said, “If there’s a problem in the school district, we want you to know,” and so each day by 3 p.m., New York state superintendents are required to submit the district’s COVID-19 numbers. As superintendents share their concerns about the school report card, here is a link to the website’s information. OTSEGO COUNTY (WBNG) — A letter was sent to school superintendents from the New York State Department of Health regarding schools marking in the COVID-19 numbers for their districts. “You can’t submit the form unless you can attest,” Carlin said. “If you don’t check that box, you can’t submit the form.”  The state says they are using what the schools submit along with submissions from labs.   Furman says these deadlines are additionally difficult as some test results come in after the deadline.  Theresa Carlin, Schenevus Central School District superintendent, says it’s hard for her to attest to something she can’t attest to.  last_img read more

Shaw helped by home comforts

first_imgHome comforts have helped Luke Shaw finally find his feet at Manchester United. “I have a good structure at home and good people around me. “It makes me feel more comfortable. It helped me settle because even at Southampton I never lived with them but it’s nice to be with them and to even spend time with my family.” Shaw frankly admitted on United’s tour of the United States that he had under-estimated the challenge of playing for a club that claims to be the biggest in the world. That is why he was far from his physical peak when he turned up on his first day at United. But after making several appearances at commercial events – the latest one being for United’s global noodle partner Nissin on Saturday evening – he is fully aware of the demands being placed upon him. “I am used to it now, it’s part of my job,” he said. “You need to get used to it quickly because there is lots of things to do here commercially and on the pitch.” Just a couple of hours before his appearance at the event, Shaw had brought the Old Trafford crowd to their feet with his run and low shot on goal which Julian Speroni just managed to tip wide. Former United full-back Phil Neville said it reminded him of Gareth Bale. The teenager promises the United support that will not be the last time they see that this season. “It’s something I have in my ability and I think I can do more of it,” Shaw said. “When chances come for me like that I tend to run forward like that. It was a good save. Hopefully soon a goal will come.” Back in their prime, Evra and Dennis Irwin used to raise the volume at Old Trafford with similar runs. Shaw has lofty ambitions to match the achievements of the pair. “There is Patrice Evra and Dennis Irwin that are top quality left backs and I just want to come here and prove to everyone that I can be just as good as them two legends,” he said. Shaw hopes Saturday’s win, which came courtesy of Juan Mata’s second-half strike, will help United move up the table after their unconvincing start. “Hopefully that win can kick start our season,” he said. “We haven’t had the best run in the last few games so it was a massive win.” :: Luke Shaw was speaking at the screening of ‘HUNGRY TO WIN,’ Japanese animation created by Nissin, Manchester United’s Official Global Noodle Partner. Shaw has endured a rocky start to his career at Old Trafford. He turned up to pre-season training out of shape and many questioned why the club had allowed long-serving left-back Patrice Evra to leave. But four months on, he has found contentment. “I feel at home now,” the England left-back told Press Association Sport. “Everyone has been really good with me, not just the players but the staff as well. “They have made me feel really welcome and now I just want to keep on improving, working hard in training and get the best out of myself.” A key component in Shaw’s improvement has, it seems, been the relocation of his parents from Surrey to the north-west. “It’s a new surrounding for me but the best thing is that my family have come up with me,” said Shaw, who lived in digs with his young Southampton team-mates until his transfer. “My Mum and Dad are here so I’m not just a 19-year-old living up here by myself. Press Association United fans voted Shaw man of the match on Saturday after an energetic and uplifting display in the 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace. The 19-year-old impressed throughout and almost scored his first professional goal after a surging 50-yard run which started from his own half. last_img read more
