That same quality offering quiet and relaxation, however, can be a disadvantage when it comes to reporting a crime. But a new pilot program is trying to streamline this process by letting local National Police officers file criminal complaints so victims don’t have to travel out of their way.Starting this June, police in Puerto Viejo, Cocles, Cahuita, Flamingo, Dominical, Nosara, Sámara, Playas del Coco and Tamarindo will start taking criminal complaints, according to Public Security Ministry spokesman José Vargas.Between May 20 and 24, 75 police officers were trained at the National Police Academy to take victim statements and file complaints via email to the nearest Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ) delegation. The job of investigating crimes will remain with the OIJ.Generally speaking, police in Costa Rica are tasked with preventing crime and OIJ officers are in charge of investigating crimes committed. This means that while police might be the first on the scene if a smartphone is stolen, for example, the victim still has to file a compliant with OIJ in order to file charges.Under the current system, victims in far-flung places like the Pacific beach town of Nosara would need to drive nearly 60 kilometers to Nicoya to report a crime. Some, especially foreign tourists, don’t know that they need to file a separate complaint with OIJ beyond their initial encounter with police. Others decide it’s too much hassle.Vargas said other communities could be incorporated if the project goes well. Facebook Commentslast_img read more

first_imgApple is suing virtualization software company Corellium, according to documents filed today in Florida.Corellium allows customers to create and interact with virtual iOS devices — a software iPhone, for example, running actual iOS firmware, all within the browser. Apple says this is copyright infringement, and is demanding Corellium stops “all uses of” its iOS virtualization products and pays Apple unspecified “damages and lost profits.”Corellium could allow, for example, a security researcher to quickly fire up a simulated iPhone and hunt for potential bugs. If one is discovered, they can quickly load up prior versions of iOS to see how long this bug has been around. If a bug “bricks” the virtual iOS device and renders it unusable, it’s a matter of just booting up a new one rather than obtaining a whole new phone. Virtualized devices can be paused, giving researchers a detailed look at its precise state at any given moment.Forbes did a deep dive on the company last year. As they point out, two of the company’s co-founders were some of the earliest members of the iPhone jailbreak scene, giving them an understanding better than nearly anyone else in the world as to how iPhones, iPads, etc. work under the hood.In its complaint, Apple writes:The product Corellium offers is a “virtual” version of Apple mobile hardware products, accessible to anyone with a web browser. Specifically, Corellium serves up what it touts as a perfect digital facsimile of a broad range of Apple’s market-leading devices—recreating with fastidious attention to detail not just the way the operating system and applications appear visually to bona fide purchasers, but also the underlying computer code. Corellium does so with no license or permission from Apple.This news comes just days after Apple announced that it would be launching an “iOS Security Research Device Program,” in which select security researchers would be given access to less-locked-down iOS devices in order to help them find vulnerabilities.last_img read more

This is also the only brick and mortar office of the IRCTC where people can walk in to buy a train or air travel package and even get a customised trip as per their convenience,” said Dr A K Manocha, CMD, IRCTC.“The tourist facilitation centre, to be launched shortly, will be unique as it would facilitate a direct public interface,” he further added.The facilitation centre will handle all special train packages of IRCTC such as Bharat Darshan, pilgrim trains (Tirupati, Shirdi, and Buddhist circuit), the north-east, Kerala and Goa. In addition, there are air packages for Jammu and Kashmir, Shirdi and Tirupati.“When we announced recently Jammu and Kashmir and Shirdi air travel packages from Delhi, these were completely sold out. Likewise, the Tirupati package got a booking of 80% almost immediately,” informed Pradeep Dhiman, Addl GM, IRCTC.The facilitation centre is also expected to cater to the travel requirements of ministries, government departments and PSUs, besides clients in the corporate sector.

first_imgMark J. Rebilas / USA TODAY SportsHistory unfolded before 100 million sets of eyeballs on Sunday night as Patriots defensive back Malcolm Butler separated Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette from the football, securing one of the most dramatic interceptions in NFL history and giving New England a 28-24 victory.That last play call, with Seattle sitting on a 2nd-and-goal from the New England one-yard line and Marshawn Lynch nowhere near the football, was the entire focus of the post-game conversation, with a near unanimous consensus that Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll and Darrell Bevell made the wrong decision. To his credit, Carroll bore the full brunt of the blame. “I told those guys that was my fault totally,” he said.Your browser does not support iframes.Via Business Insider, here’s a look at the TV copy of the pre-snap alignment before the fateful interception. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix Hindsight in this case is 20/10, but what do you call in that situation?A running play puts the numbers heavily in New England’s favor, so there’s an equally likely – if not greater – chance that a Lynch run loses yards instead of reaches the end zone. Lynch’s own history says he probably doesn’t score there.Marshawn Lynch had 5 previous runs from the 1 this season and had scored only one touchdown.— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) February 2, 2015But maybe that’s reading too much into a simple situation. Lynch carried the ball 24 times for 102 yards and a touchdown, and never looked more fresh than the four-yard burst to place Seattle on the doorstep. Conventional wisdom says with the Super Bowl on the line, you place the ball in the hands of your franchise running back, not your sixth-leading receiver. And even if Lynch doesn’t score on second down, it guarantees a shot on third and fourth down.Seattle never got that shot, and they’ll have the rest of their careers to think about it.last_img read more

first_imgOlderAmerican Airlines signs Cathay Dragon codeshare deal NewerAmadeus brings global connectivity to Baku, Azerbaijan Upping the ante on enhancing the customer experience at Dubai International, operator Dubai Airports has launched a high-tech system that monitors airport operations in real-time and visualises traffic flows to support consistently smooth operations at the airport. realtimeDXB, a bespoke cloud-based platform, gathers data generated by more than 50 operational systems, including those of Dubai Airports and its many service partners. It uses this information to keep all operational teams involved aware of not only the current scenarios but also developing situations anywhere from airfield to kerbside to anticipate challenges more accurately, facilitate greater collaboration between service partners, and quick decision-making.“As a system that makes key operational information visible in real-time to all service partners involved in the day to day running of the airport, realtimeDXB is a major step forward in our journey to develop common situational awareness. “With ability to measure operational efficiency, it provides us and our partners with enhanced decision-support tools to improve operations and manage disruption more effectively. “This system will be instrumental in the implementation of new concepts of airport operations such as airport collaborative decision making and total airport management,” said Damian Ellacott, vice president of the airport operations control centre, at Dubai Airports.In its initial phase, the system will focus on situational awareness of the airfield, particularly around aircraft flow. ADVERTISEMENTKey capabilities of the system during this phase include monitoring and visualising airfield activity including aircraft and vehicle movements, status of aircraft stands, flight data information, arrival, turnaround and departure processes, alert generation and performance analysis. Dubai Airports is working on the next phase of the system which will focus on passenger and baggage flows within the terminals.“DXB is the world’s busiest hub by international passenger volumes and we aspire to be also known as the best airport for customer service. “One of the best ways to achieve that goal is to deliver a consistently smooth airport experience for the millions of customers that pass through our doors every day, and realtimeDXB helps us to do exactly that.“In addition, by increasing the flow of traffic, the system essentially adds capacity to a hub that’s located in the middle of the city and does not have the luxury to keep expanding its physical infrastructure,” said Lloyd Gozzett, vice president of customer success at Dubai Airports.last_img read more

first_imgAs Cyprus marks six years since the Mari blast, which killed 13 people, families of the victims say they are saying they are looking to the future for the good of the country.The explosion at the Evangelos Florakis naval base on July 11, 2011, happened when 98 containers of munitions exploded after being left in an open space for two years in Cyprus’ boiling hot temperatures, after authorities had been repeatedly warned of the dangers. Seven sailors and six firemen died, another 62 people were injured and the power plant at Vasilikos was knocked out.The events prompted demonstrations calling for the resignation of then-president Demetris Christofias, who maintains his innocence despite findings by independent investigator Polys Poliviou – whom he appointed – finding Christofias guilty and calling for his prosecution.Popi Christoforou, the mother of 18-year-old twins who died in Mari, asked government officials not to attend memorial for them on Sunday.“My sons did not get to celebrate their nineteenth birthday,” she said.On Tuesday, President Nicos Anastasiades will attend another memorial for all of the victims at a church built at the naval base.“We do not live in the tragedy of what happened, we do not remain in the ashes. From July 11, 2011, we, as a family, have moved forward for the good of the country and truly, in the past six years, a lot of things have changed for the good of the society we live in,” Christoforou told the Protoselido TV show.She said she believed that procedures had become more meticulous because of the tragedy – although there is still a long way to go.“Authority needs to respect the law. This is slowly coming about,” Christoforou said.Commenting on whether she felt justice had been served, she said Polyviou’s report was equivalent to holy scriptures for the families “despite the fact that it has not been implemented.”Nicolas Ioannides, the son of naval captain Andreas Ioannides who died in Mari, said that not all of those who had been implicated in the explosion had paid the price. He added that responsibilities need to be investigated and it shouldn’t be that “someone” is being protected after so many years.Apart from the 13 that died – 12 at the scene and one who succumbed to his injuries later –  62 people were injured. Ioannides said the those affected carry the mental scars to this day.“We decided our life should move on and not end on that day. We should move on with our studies, work and life,” he said.Former defence minister Costas Papacostas was sentenced to five years in jail in 2013 on charges of manslaughter. He was transferred to Nicosia general hospital under guard, citing serious health problems, and died while serving time.Firemen Andreas Nicolaou and Charalambos Charalambous, and commander of the disaster response team EMAK, Andreas Loizides, were found guilty of causing death due to reckless and dangerous acts and sentenced to two years each.Families received compensation from the government last year, which accepted full responsibility for their deaths.The victims were Andreas Ioannides, Lambros Lambrou, Kleanthis Kleanthous, Mihalis Eracleous, Miltiades and Christakis Christoforou, Antonis Charalambous, Andreas Papadopoulos, Vasilis Krokos, Spyros Ttantis, Panagiotis Theofilou, Yeorgios Yiakoumi and Adamos Adamou.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

first_imgTHE GOVERNMENT on Thursday neither confirmed nor denied fresh reports of plans for a naval station at Mari to permanently service French warships.When asked government spokesman Prodromos Prodromou demurred, saying only that Cyprus already provides facilities to several nations, including France through the use of the Andreas Papandreou airbase.However, he added, announcements on the issue would be made in the near future.Prodromou did confirm that discussions are ongoing between Nicosia and Paris on the possibility of upgrading their bilateral cooperation.The most important thing, the spokesman added, is that “this cooperation among European countries is a European policy.”European defence, he said, should cover Cyprus in order to “avert moves which threaten our region as well as Cyprus.”Earlier in the day, daily Politis ran a story claiming that France and Cyprus were in talks for the construction of a naval station at Mari to host French warships.Citing its sources, the paper said these plans should be seen in the context of the EU’s Permanent Structured Cooperation (Pesco).It also drew on remarks by French president Emmanuel Macron, who at the MED-7 summit this week spoke of Cyprus’ “strategic role” in the Mediterranean.Defence minister Savvas Angelides likewise declined to comment directly.“With France we have a strategic cooperation which we are constantly working on to expand,” he told reporters.Some of the results of this cooperation were not for public disclosure, he added.On Pesco, the defence minister said on Thursday that Cyprus is steadfastly behind the project.The EU must protect its member states, as provided by the priorities of the EU Global Strategy, he added.Angelides was speaking during the informal meeting of EU defence ministers that took place in Bucharest,He said that solidarity of member states with a member state facing an offensive against its territory is of pivotal importance, he noted.“It is self-evident that any offensive against the territory of a member state constitutes an attack against the EU itself.”Cyprus already participates in eight Pesco projects, including the Joint EU Intelligence School.But speaking a day earlier to a radio station, former foreign minister Ioannis Kasoulides was far more forthcoming.He appeared to confirm that the defence ministry plans to build a naval station at the location of the Evangelos Florakis (Mari) naval base.Currently the facility has limited docking capabilities. It cannot accommodate larger vessels like frigates.According to Kasoulides, the idea is for the French to co-finance the mooted naval station.However, he stressed, it would not be a French facility but rather a Cypriot one from which facilities would be provided to the French navy.In October 2016 Nicosia and Paris signed the Franco-Cypriot Strategic Agenda, covering security and defence, as well as economic, educational and cultural cooperation.Officials have been tight-lipped about the details.You May LikeYahoo SearchBack Pain Treatments That Might Surprise You.

continue to have no apparent complications with the introduced cells after an average of nearly 2 years according to the latest status report on their health Vision tests also suggest the eyesight of more than half of the subjects has improved but other researchers expressed caution about those results Nevertheless the outcome may pave the way for transplants of stem cell–derived eye cells called photoreceptors which could dramatically improve vision in people with eye disease if all goes according to plan Eye diseases—such as age-related macular degeneration as well as a genetic condition called Stargardt’s macular dystrophy that afflicts young people—are considered excellent candidates for stem cell therapy because the eye is an immune-privileged site meaning transplanted cells are not as likely to be rejected as foreign compared with transplants elsewhere (Volunteers in these trials nonetheless received immunosuppressants for 12 weeks as a precaution) Such treatment could in theory repopulate the eye with cells that have been destroyed helping restore lost sight But there are many hurdles: Among them growing enough of the cells in a petri dish and ensuring that they connect to “the existing machinery” in the eye says Hendrik Scholl who co-directs the Center for Stem Cells and Ophthalmic Regenerative Medicine at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore Maryland There have also been safety concerns confronting all hESC studies including worries that the embryonic stem cells could proliferate out of control Today’s report which appears in The Lancet follows on another from the same group in early 2012 Then a team led by Robert Lanza the chief scientific officer of Advanced Cell Technology Inc in Marlborough Massachusetts and his colleagues published the first results ever of a clinical trial using human embryonic stem cells That study reported that the first two patients treated both of them legally blind had suffered no ill effects from the cells Now Lanza and Steven Schwartz who heads the retina division at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at the University of California Los Angeles along with their colleagues share more details from early studies in two different eye diseases They describe outcomes on nine people with age-related macular degeneration and nine with Stargardt’s The volunteers ranging in age from 20 to 88 received injections under their retina of a particular type of eye cell retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells which were derived from hESCs in the lab RPE cells have some big advantages for initial hESC safety studies: Because they are pigmented they can be tracked They are also relatively easy to grow manipulate and control in the lab The downside is that people with these eye diseases are losing sight in large part because they’re losing a different type of eye cell: the photoreceptors that sense light in the retina Still the trial results offer hope so far After the surgery 13 of 18 patients had an increase in pigmentation suggesting that the transplanted cells were doing their job The authors also reported that 10 patients described some improvement in their vision which Lanza says was an unanticipated result “In the best-case scenario we thought we could hopefully prevent the loss of vision in these patients” he says because RPE cells are known to help maintain existing photoreceptors in part by digesting the cellular debris that they shed “We never really expected such dramatic improvement” Lanza says He suspects that transplanted cells are actually restoring the function of “dormant” photoreceptors However the improvements didn’t correlate with how much additional pigment researchers detected and Lanza is careful to point out that for ethical reasons the study had no control group that received the surgery without the transplanted cells Scholl is upbeat that the transplanted cells still appear safe and says that analysis of the cells in the recipients’ eyes are “indeed an indication that something is happening” The “small signal” that vision improved in this cohort could be because the remaining photoreceptors “are exposed to a healthier environment” he believes Or it could be due to the cataract surgery several patients in the study received or the challenges of measuring vision to begin with Still Scholl adds transplantation of RPE cells “can’t be it” for such patients because ultimately they need new photoreceptors to restore vision Some groups including Lanza’s are looking to do just that: transplant photoreceptor cells Initial evidence shows that these cells derived from hESCs have “an amazing capacity” to migrate into the retina and restore vision Lanza says But they’re more difficult to grow in the lab and testing is right now limited to animals In the long term it’s hoped that injecting these cells could make a dramatic difference for people whose sight is disappearing or has already vanished5 lakh in cash and
