SAN JOSÉ — The Costa Rican government is stepping up efforts to reinforce police control along its border with Nicaragua — especially at its Peñas Blancas northern border station. “Between Dec. 15 and Jan. 15, we’ve seen nearly half a million people pass through the border,” said Freddy Montero, Costa Rica’s coordinator for the Regional Program of Border Security in Central America (known by its Spanish acronym SEFRO). “This huge influx has been handled with order and agility.” Police were ready for the annual year-end immigration flood, with border commanders at Peñas Blancas opening up 14 windows to check documents as well as new stations to search luggage and transported goods. New scanners provided by the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock ensured that everything going in and out of the country was monitored. Police credited the new equipment for a 300 percent increase in contraband seized at the border compared to the same period a year ago. Drugs penetrating border crossing By Dialogo February 04, 2013 Influx of mojados concerns authorities New laws in the past few years have given Nicaraguans looking to emigrate even more incentive to cross the border as mojados. In 2005, the Costa Rican legislature passed a new foreign migration law strengthening measures related to rejections and deportations. The law also established criminal penalties for illegal immigrants. For Costa Rican authorities, the safety of illegal border jumpers is a major issue. While many people say they’re willing to help mojados cross the border, it doesn’t always go smoothly. In late December, a young girl crossing the border illegally with her family was raped. “It is things like this that make the police force call for the prevention of illegal border crossings,” said police spokesman Ricardo Camacho. “Whether these people are nationals or foreigners, they need to take safely established measures to cross the border legally.” Nicaraguans encouraged to cross more than ever Nine percent of Costa Rica’s population of 4.3 million is foreign-born, according to the country’s 2011 census. That’s one of the highest rates in Latin America — and nearly three-fourths of those foreigners come from Nicaragua. In a 2008 survey conducted by the Central Bank of Costa Rica, 39 percent of Nicaraguan immigrants said they crossed the border for better job opportunities; another 20 percent said they moved to Costa Rica because it was more politically and economically stable. While no real estimates are available, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) noted an increase in the number of illegal border crossings from Nicaragua every year since Hurricane Mitch devastated northern Central America in 1998. These droves of border jumpers call the illegal crossings — and even themselves — mojados, or wet in English. Rather than risk crossing near immigration stations, mojados pay farmers to pass through their land onto Costa Rican soil, according to a Nicaraguan Army report from 2011 that identified 38 blind spots along the border. “We need to reinforce police control in certain zones,” said Border Police Commander Orlando Cuadra. “Our efforts are constantly focused on our northern border.” Police records show that the newly renovated Peñas Blancas border station oversees the passage of 600,000 people annually. This volume — which also includes 400 transport trucks a day — gives police an average of 30 seconds to examine each traveler’s documents before clearing that individual to enter Costa Rica. The Peñas Blancas post is located along the Pan-American Highway, a long-recognized drug route, and drug seizures from traffickers attempting to legally cross the border have become a common occurrence. In 2012, Costa Rican authorities seized more than twice the amount of cocaine as in 2011 and tripled the amount from 2010. Between May 8, 2010, and Dec. 31, 2012, police confiscated nearly 27 tons of cocaine; marijuana and crack seizures were also sharply up last year. Most confiscations took place at border crossings, said Security Minister Mario Zamora. “Crack is not made here in Costa Rica,” Zamora said at a press conference announcing the results. “We are finding crack here in our streets more and more, and it indicates that people are bringing it in from beyond our borders.”
New West Ham manager David Moyes has secured his first point as manager after his team battled back from a shocking start to play 1-1 with visitors Leicester City at home.The Hammers made a bad start in what was Moyes’ second game and were punished by Marc Albrighton’s 8th minute opener but credit to the London side who bounced back into the game and should have equalised with some gilt edge opportunities. Their dominance however paid off through Cheikh Kouyate’s header from Manuel Lanzini’s corner kick on the stroke of halftime.West Ham continued from where they left off but struggled to break down the immediate past champions as both sides settled for the 1-1 result in the endThe draw took Leicester City above Newcastle United into 11th place with 14 points from 13 games while West Ham United stay in the last relegation place with 10 points though the they have the same point tally with West Brom, which is the team currently occupying the last relegation place.Related
DONEGAL TD Pearse Doherty TD has said the new targets for concluded agreements on mortgages lack ambition and are wide open to abuse.He was reacting to figures from the Central Bank and is questioning the definition of ‘concluded agreements’ with mortgage holders.“The setting of concrete targets for conclusions, rather than just offers by the banks, is welcome but overdue,” said Doherty. “I am disappointed that the targets of only 15% concluded by the end of this year, moving up to only 25% three months later, lack ambition.“More seriously, today’s statement from the Central Bank is tellingly silent in what it considers to be a “concluded agreement”.“Unless further clarification is issued we can only presume that they will count repossessions or deals imposed under threat of repossession as “concluded agreements”.“The process of setting targets has been abused by the banks which have relied on legal letters to meet their targets. The Central Bank, and if necessary Minister Noonan, must clarify immediately that the targets will not be met by moving down the repossession route. “My office has received many examples of banks abusing the system and simply moving to the legal route as a first step. As long as this is tolerated any targets are meaningless.“Once again, I am calling for Minister Noonan and the Central Bank to stand up to the banks and make it clear that these targets are for meaningful solutions and that threatening repossession cannot count towards meeting targets. ” BANKS TAKING THE HAND AGAIN, SAYS DOHERTY was last modified: September 17th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BANKS TAKING THE HAND AGAINSAYS DOHERTY
Chelsea Ladies manager Emma Hayes says further signings are on the way as she looks to build a team capable of winning the Women’s Super League next season.Hayes was speaking as her squad was preparing to depart Tokyo, having reached the final of the International Women’s Club Championship before losing 4-2 to Japanese league and cup champions INAC Kobe Leonessa on Sunday.Recent recruit Rachel Williams was the Blues’ star player in Japan, scoring one and making one in the final as Chelsea almost pulled off a remarkable comeback having trailed 3-0 to their impressive hosts after 80 minutes.Williams has been joined in west London by her fellow England international Laura Bassett, with both opting not to sign new deals at Birmingham City Ladies in favour of the move south.And despite the tournament in Japan only just endingm Hayes revealed she has no plans to take a break, instead putting her time and energy in to building a side capable of topping the WSL pile next year.New signing Williams impressed in Japan.“We have big expectations for next season at Chelsea and I think once everyone sees the signings we bring in you will see that we have very serious intentions to compete and win our league next season,” said Hayes, who oversaw a 3-2 win over Sydney FC in the semi-final in Japan.“I think once we complete the signings of a few more players we will add good quality to the team. But we also have some good youngsters coming through and I think you will see a much more competitive Chelsea next season.“Being here has allowed us to build a spirit, which is the most important thing. We will have more time to train when we are back in England and we will use this trip as a motivation for the players as it has been a massive success on and off the pitch as we have had time to spend in the community in Tokyo and Okayama.’INAC Kobe were the big favourites for the game and opened up a 3-0 lead before Williams and Hannah Blundell pegged them back, only for the hosts to catch Chelsea on the break in injury time.And Hayes believes running a side packed full of internationals so close during what is effectively pre-season for Chelsea will stand her players in good stead for next year.“We knew it would be a difficult game against a top team and due to the time of the year we didn’t have the fitness levels to play a high-pressing game,” she added.“In general I think we had good opportunities, we hit the bar and had a one on one but we missed those chances at crucial times and as we didn’t convert 3-0 was too difficult a score to come back from.“‘But the team showed great character second half and I think if we played them again during our season we would give them an even better game.“INAC are a team that have played together for a long time and that is the difference. We have similar philosophies and they have top players but the time together was the main difference.’See also:Chelsea Ladies sign duo from ArsenalChelsea Ladies snap up Dutch 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

In the U.S., the system for writing, adopting, and enforcing building codes is peculiar. Lots of people are confused about building codes.Anyone interested in understanding building codes in the U.S. needs to start by learning a few basic facts:The ICC codes that are most relevant to residential builders are the International Residential Code (IRC) and the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). These codes are written in three-year cycles, which means that every three years, a new version of the code is published. That’s why builders and code officials refer to the 2009 IRC, the 2012 IRC, or the 2015 IRC.When states adopt a building code, they can adopt any version they want, and they are under no obligation to update the code when a new version of a model code is published. (There are a few exceptions to this rule: in some states, legislation has been passed to require automatic adoption of updated codes.) State-to-state variations are common; for example, Wisconsin is using the 2009 code while Iowa is using the 2012 code and Illinois is using the 2015 code — all at the same time.In recent months, some states have begun to adopt versions of the latest edition of the IECC, namely the 2015 IECC. States that have done so include llinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, Utah, and Vermont. A HERS Index can be a path to compliance GBA has published several articles on the 2015 IECC, including the following:As these articles explain, one of the new compliance paths available to builders under the 2015 IECC involves getting a HERS Index for a new home. (The code refers to this rating as the Energy Rating Index, or ERI; but for all intents and purposes, an ERI is the same as a…
