Brazilian, Colombian, and Peruvian Navies Conduct Joint Border Operation

first_imgBy Taciana Moury/Diálogo October 18, 2017 The Brazilian, Colombian, and Peruvian navies participated in BRACOLPER 2017, a combined operation on their tri-border in the Amazon region. The operation brought together nearly 400 service members from the three countries with the purpose of raising the level of training, interoperability, and interaction among their river, air, and marine units. “BRACOLPER also helped in the fight against border crime in the region, as well as providing for a strengthening of brotherhood and friendship bonds among the forces,” said Brazilian Navy Captain Pedro Lima Silva Filho, the commander of the Amazonas Fleet. The waters of the Solimões and Negro rivers in Brazil and the Amazon River in Colombia and Peru were used as a ‘stage’ during the exercise, which rolled out in three phases: two operational exercises conducted from July 10th to August 10th and the final exercise, from September 3rd–8th, which involved the participation of ships and service members during Brazil’s Independence Day celebration. Brazil, Colombia, and Peru have been holding BRACOLPER annually since 1947. This was the 43rd edition of the exercise. For Capt. Silva Filho, the operation was a great opportunity to synergistically join the navies of different nations and cultures together to further a shared objective. “These experiential and informational exchanges will help us conduct combined operations in the future using the ships of the forces involved,” he added. Brazilian Navy Commander Luciano Eni da Silva, the chief of the Operations Division at the 9th Naval District Command, noted to Diálogo that the shared problems faced by the nations of the Amazon region can be combated during BRACOLPER. “This operation supplements our defense and it protects Brazil’s interests in the region,” Cmdr. Luciano said. “BRACOLPER is one more opportunity to operate together in a river environment and learn how the navies of our partner nations operate, as well as refreshing ourselves on our regulations and procedures or acquiring new knowledge by observing how the participants operate,” he stressed. Training the service members involved During the period of these operations, several training issues were worked out, according to Cmdr. Silva Filho. “The preparation and timing of our navigational operations on the rivers of the Amazon, in response to asymmetric surface warfare threats, were some of the issues we worked on, as well as firefighting and self-defense capacity-building exercises,” he outlined. One of the planned activities was a transit exercise with an opponent using asymmetric surface warfare. Held on the Amazon River, the training simulated an asymmetric surface attack against the naval units involved and had the objective of evaluating and training the crews on rapid-response procedures. Participating in this operation were the river patrol ships (NPaFlu, per its Portuguese acronym) Pedro Teixeira and Rondônia, the Brazilian Navy hospital ship (NAsH, per its Portuguese acronym) Soares de Meirelles, the ARC Letícia from the Colombian Navy, and the patrol ships Castilla and Clavero from the Peruvian Navy. According to Capt. Silva Filho, the NPaFlu Rondônia was used as a fast-attack craft for the exercise. “The importance of this activity is that it trains the ships’ commands and crews for a real-world situation; for the time when you have to navigate through the Amazon region on stretches of rivers where these threats exist.” Another activity performed during BRACOLPER 2017 was the “Leap Frog” exercise, in which two ships approach each other and remain side-by-side for a 10-minute period. The exercise took place during the crossing between Tabatinga, in the Brazilian state of Amazonas, and Iquitos, in Peru. According to Cmdr. Luciano, the exercise implies transferring water and oil without the ships having to come to a full stop. “For instance, this might be carried out when there is a need to meet a deadline to be at a certain place, or even in a situation when the ships are underway and not allowed to stop,” he explained, adding that this activity involves a high level of risk, considering the winding nature of the river, with constant course changes and variations in the riverbed. During the first two phases of the operation, there were also training exercises on signaling (sending messages using flags in certain positions) and Vertical Replenishment (VERTREP, or cargo transport by aircraft), using a UH-12 helicopter from the Third General Use Helicopter Squadron. Later, in the third phase, the service members participated in a firing exercise in the area of Novo Airão, in Amazonas state. “The objective was to qualify the ships’ operations teams as well as exchange knowledge and experiences among the Brazilian and foreign crews,” Capt. Silva Filho said. Observing Brazil’s Independence Day The closing ceremony for BRACOLPER 2017 took place during Brazil’s Independence Day celebrations on September 7th. Held at the Manaus Convention Center, in the capital of Amazonas state, the parade, according to its organizers, attracted approximately 10,000 people and included the participation of 5,000 active and reserve service members. The Brazilian Navy Group paraded alongside the Colombian Navy and Peruvian Navy groups. The naval parade took place on the western edge of the river zone in Manaus, with five Brazilian ships—four patrol ships and one hospital ship—participating, as well as the Peruvian Navy patrol ship Castilla and the Colombian Navy patrol ship Leticia. Over the course of BRACOLPER, Colombia’s Independence Day on July 20th and Peru’s on July 28th were also celebrated. These military ceremonies were attended by naval representatives from the three nations participating in the operation.last_img read more

first_imgProposed DNA testing amendment October 15, 2005 Regular News Proposed DNA testing amendmentcenter_img The Florida Bar Criminal Procedure Rules Committee has submitted to the Supreme Court a report recommending the court adopt an emergency amendment to Florida Rule of Criminal Procedure 3.853, Motion For Postconviction DNA Testing, eliminating the subdivision (d)(1) time limitations for filing a motion for postconviction DNA testing. The court invites all interested persons to comment on the committee’s proposed amendments, which are reproduced in full below, as well as online at www.floridasupremecourt.org/decisions/proposed.shtml. An original and nine paper copies of all comments must be filed with the court on or before November 15, with a certificate of service verifying that a copy has been served on the committee chair, George E. Tragos, 600 Cleveland Street, Suite 700, Clearwater 33755, as well as a separate request for oral argument if the person filing the comment wishes to participate in oral argument, which may be scheduled in this case. Electronic copies of all comments also must be filed in accordance with the Court’s Administrative Order In Re: Mandatory Submission of Electronic Copies of Documents, Fla. Admin. Order No. AOSC04-84 (Sept. 13, 2004). IN THE SUPREME COURT OF FLORIDA IN RE: AMENDMENTS TO FLORIDA RULE OF CRIMINAL PROCEDURE 3.853(d), CASE NO. 05-1702 RULE 3.853. MOTION FOR POSTCONVICTION DNA TESTING (a) Purpose. This rule provides procedures for obtaining DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) testing under section 925.11, Florida Statutes. (b) Contents of Motion. The motion for postconviction DNA testing must be under oath and must include the following: (1) a statement of the facts relied on in support of the motion, including a description of the physical evidence containing DNA to be tested and, if known, the present location or last known location of the evidence and how it originally was obtained; (2) a statement that the evidence was not tested previously for DNA, or a statement that the results of previous DNA testing were inconclusive and that subsequent scientific developments in DNA testing techniques likely would produce a definitive result; (3) a statement that the movant is innocent and how the DNA testing requested by the motion will exonerate the movant of the crime for which the movant was sentenced, or a statement how the DNA testing will mitigate the sentence received by the movant for that crime; (4) a statement that identification of the movant is a genuinely disputed issue in the case and why it is an issue or an explanation of how the DNA evidence would either exonerate the defendant or mitigate the sentence that the movant received; (5) a statement of any other facts relevant to the motion; and (6) a certificate that a copy of the motion has been served on the prosecuting authority.(c) Procedure. (1) On receipt of the motion, the clerk of the court shall file it and deliver the court file to the assigned judge. (2) The court shall review the motion and deny it if it is insufficient. If the motion is sufficient, the prosecuting authority shall be ordered to respond to the motion within 30 days or such other time as may be ordered by the court. (3) On receipt of the response of the prosecuting authority, the court shall review the response and enter an order on the merits of the motion or set the motion for hearing. (4) In the event that the motion shall proceed to a hearing, the court may appoint counsel to assist the movant if the court determines that assistance of counsel is necessary and on making the appropriate finding of indigence. (5) The court shall make the following findings when ruling on the motion: (A) Whether it has been shown that physical evidence that may contain DNA still exists. (B) Whether the results of DNA testing of that physical evidence likely would be admissible at trial and whether there exists reliable proof to establish that the evidence containing the tested DNA is authentic and would be admissible at a future hearing. (C) Whether there is a reasonable probability that the movant would have been acquitted or would have received a lesser sentence if the DNA evidence had been admitted at trial. (6) If the court orders DNA testing of the physical evidence, the cost of the testing may be assessed against the movant, unless the movant is indigent. If the movant is indigent, the state shall bear the cost of the DNA testing ordered by the court. (7) The court-ordered DNA testing shall be ordered to be conducted by the Department of Law Enforcement or its designee, as provided by statute. However, the court, on a showing of good cause, may order testing by another laboratory or agency certified by the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors or the National Forensic Science Training Center when requested by a movant who can bear the cost of such testing. (8) The results of the DNA testing ordered by the court shall be provided in writing to the court, the movant, and the prosecuting authority. (d) Time Limitations. (1) The motion for postconviction DNA testing must be filed: l (A) Within 4 years following the date that the judgment and sentence in the case became final if no direct appeal was taken; within 4 years following the date the conviction was affirmed on direct appeal if an appeal was taken; within 4 years following the date collateral counsel was appointed or retained sub­sequent to the conviction being affirmed on direct appeal in a capital case in which the death penalty was imposed; or by October 1, 2005, whichever occurs later; or (B) At any time, if the facts on which the petition is predicated were unknown to the petitioner or the movant’s attorney and could not have been ascertained by the exercise of due diligence. (2) A motion to vacate filed under rule 3.850 or a motion for postconviction or collateral relief filed under rule 3.851, which is based solely on the results of the court-ordered DNA testing obtained under this rule, shall be treated as raising a claim of newly-discovered evidence and the time periods set forth in rules 3.850 and 3.851 shall commence on the date that the written test results are provided to the court, the movant, and the prosecuting authority pursuant to sub section division (c)(8). (e) Rehearing. The movant may file a motion for rehearing of any order denying relief within 15 days after service of the order denying relief. The time for filing an appeal shall be tolled until an order on the motion for rehearing has been entered. (f) Appeal. An appeal may be taken by any adversely affected party within 30 days from the date the order on the motion is rendered. All orders denying relief must include a statement that the movant has the right to appeal within 30 days after the order denying relief is rendered.last_img read more

Press Picks for Top 5 Movies of 2015

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Hollywood dominated 2015 with some superb movies, transporting moviegoers to other worlds, gazing into the future, reflecting on the past, and even showing some familiar character faces. In the order of their release, below are the Press’ favorite 2015 movies.Ex MachinaThe sci-fi thriller assesses the world’s first artificial intelligence. Almost completely covered in CGI effects, Alicia Vikander delivers an impressive and eerily life-like portrayal as the AI. Joined by programmer Caleb Smith (Domhnall Gleeson) and the oddball AI creator Nathan Bateman (Oscar Isaac), the story takes a bit of a weird turn. Ultimately, the film explores the current and controversial relationship between man and machine.Mad Max: Fury RoadContinuing director George Miller’s 30-year-old franchise, the Road Warrior returns to a simple chase plot through his barbaric and outlandish apocalyptic nightmare. Beautifully choreographed but intense action sequences (literally) drive the story forward, leaving the worldbuilding and character development to the stunning visuals, leaving the unnecessary explanations in the desert Wasteland’s dust. Charlize Theron’s one-armed Furiosa steals the spotlight sometimes from Max (Tom Hardy), but their journey is exciting and fun. Open-minded audiences will finish this film exclaiming, “What a day! What a lovely day!”The MartianMatt Damon is stranded in space … again. This time he’s on Mars and needs to grow food and water on a planet where nothing grows, establish contact with Earth, and ultimately, “science the shit out of this.” What’s expected to be a predictably depressing survival movie surprises with a comically sarcastic and optimistic main character and overall tone. Even more interesting, the scenario is realistic and backed 100 percent by NASA, which “coincidentally” announced that water was found on Mars just around the film’s release. Check out the Press’ complete review here.SpotlightOkay, maybe we journalists are a little biased here. We like to think our job is hard work, but few can compete with The Boston Globe’s investigations and disturbing revelations into the cover-ups of sexual abuse within the Catholic Church. The dramatized retelling of the widespread scandals enlightens viewers to the infuriating process of investigative journalism when impeded by opposition. Releasing this film when religious skepticism is at an all-time peak seemed like curious timing, too.This photo provided by Disney shows, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren with his Lightsaber in a scene from the new film, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” The movie releases in the U.S. on Dec. 18, 2015. (Film Frame/Disney/Lucasfilm via AP) ORG XMIT: CAET177Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force AwakensLet’s be honest, we all saw this one coming. Star Wars is back! Maybe not quite more powerful than we could possibly imagine, but still back! Clashing lightsabers, one Millennium Falcon, and some screeching TIE Fighters returned fans old and new to a galaxy far, far away. Does it surpass the original trilogy? Hell no! But the new characters separated themselves from the original cast enough to claim the story as their own and set the stage for the now highly anticipated Ep. VIII in 2017. Check out the Press’ nostalgic review here.last_img read more

Spinach-linked E coli cases jump to 131

first_img “Probably, we have a single location that further contaminated large volumes of spinach,” Acheson said. Six people in the outbreak (5%) were younger than 5 years, and 96 (73%) were women, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said in an update today. Of patients who gave the date when their symptoms began, 93% fell ill between Aug 19 and Sep 5. CIDRAP overview of pathogenic E colihttp://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/fs/food-disease/causes/ecolioview.html The CDC said this week that people who experience diarrhea after eating fresh spinach or salad blends containing fresh spinach should contact their healthcare provider and ask that their stool sample be tested for E coli O157:H7. Acheson said it’s too early to make a definitive statement on the virulence of the involved E coli strain, but he said the number of people who have been hospitalized seems high. In a typical E coli outbreak, he said, 25% to 30% of patients require hospital treatment. The FDA continues to receive reports of new cases and new information on brands, he said. “We have not ruled out other recalls as our active investigation expands,” Acheson said. Wisconsin has the highest number of cases with 32, including the one death. Most states have from 1 to 9 cases. Acheson speculated that Wisconsin might have received a disproportionate share of the tainted spinach. Sep 19, 2006 (CIDRAP News) – The tally of people involved in a nationwide Escherichia coli O157:H7 outbreak associated with fresh spinach jumped by 17 today to reach 131, about half of whom were hospitalized, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) reported. Teams of investigators are currently taking samples at nine farms that were growing spinach for Natural Selection Foods at the time of the outbreak. All the farms were linked to product codes on fresh spinach bags submitted by patients, he said. Monterey County, Calif., which includes the part of the Salinas Valley where much of the spinach is grown, has 10,480 acres devoted to spinach farming. The FDA first announced the outbreak on Sep 14 when it advised consumers to avoid eating fresh spinach or any products containing it, because most patients said they had consumed fresh spinach. Two producers—Natural Selection Foods and River Ranch—have voluntarily recalled their products that contain fresh spinach. Yesterday, Natural Selection Foods said that none of the bags submitted by patients were from its organic brands. However, Acheson said the FDA has not ruled out the organic products as a culprit. At a press conference this afternoon, David Acheson, MD, chief medical officer for the FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, said two more patients developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), which can cause kidney failure and death, bringing HUS cases to 20. Nationwide, he said, 66 patients have been hospitalized with the illness. The death toll remained at one today, and the number of affected states stayed the same at 21. Investigators have taken spinach samples at production facilities and from bags sent in by consumers, Acheson said. Test results are expected in the next 3 or 4 days. See also: Sep 19 FDA press releasehttp://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/2006/ucm108739.htm CDC updatehttp://www.cdc.gov/ecoli/2006/september/updates/091706.htm Acheson said the number of patients who have had HUS is also high; normally, HUS only afflicts 5% to 10% of patients.last_img read more

I actually like watching them more than the ones in red shirts to be honest with you. At least you can identify with them. There’s nothing about this United team I like at all. Just awful.‘Look at them, there. They’re a despondent group of people. Luke Shaw doesn’t know whether to go with his left foot or his right foot.‘He’s [Solskjaer] smiling at them they’re that bad.
