Lawmakers threaten to filibuster animal welfare bill with more than 200 motions

first_imgRelated posts:New cases of animal abuse spark criticism of President Solís, lawmakers President Solís signs new Animal Welfare Law Costa Rica animal welfare bill gains momentum as horrifying abuse cases circulate on social media Animal Welfare Bill could be discussed in Legislative Assembly this week At the start of his term in 2014, President Luis Guillermo Solís promised that getting legislation passed to improve animal welfare in Costa Rica would be a priority for his administration. But a bill to do just that has stalled for over a year in the Legislative Assembly, where it hasn’t even been brought up for a vote in the Environmental Commission.That bill now faces further challenges, as last week several legislators, including the National Liberation Party’s Juan Marín and Aracelly Segura and the Broad Front Party’s Suray Carrillo, demanded that several articles be removed because they would hurt farmers or end entertainment events such as Tico bullfighting, rodeos and horse parades, according to the lawmakers.Marín said that if their demands are not met, the group of lawmakers would file “more than 200 motions” to obstruct the bill’s approval. He said the use of animals in commercial activities or public events already is covered by laws from other public agencies such as the Agriculture and Livestock Ministry and the National Animal Health Service.“We tried to amend the bill during its drafting, but we haven’t had any support,” Marín said. “So, we’re going to block it by using any available procedure authorized by legislative regulations, including filing all those motions.”Commission member Marcela Guerrero from the ruling Citizen Action Party stood firm on the regulation of farm animals, saying at last week’s commission meeting that it proposed “to punish abuse against all kinds of animals, not only pets.”Guerrero said she is willing to negotiate, but the terms proposed by the PLN and the FA are “complicated.”Several articles over the past year have been modified following discussion and criticism by industry groups such as the Agriculture and Agribusiness Chamber, and pork and cattle producers.A work in progressThe original drafting of the bill proposed penalties of up to six years in prison for those found guilty of abusing or killing an animal. The current draft now sets separate penalties for abuse and death.In abuse cases, the proposed maximum sentence of two years was replaced by a small fine, the equivalent of about $700.The new article also describes abuse as any action affecting an animal’s health, including the loss or disabling of a body organ. It would sanction those who promote animal fights, perform sexual acts on animals or practices vivisection on them with purposes not related to scientific research.For those who intentionally cause the death of an animal, the draft bill currently stipulates a maximum sentence of three years in prison.The proposal excludes from sanctions those who use animals in productive activities such as fishing, aquaculture, livestock and veterinary practices. It also allows under a number of regulations Tico bullfighting, horse parades and other traditional events in which animals participate.Lawmakers added an article on “alternative punishment” stating that judges would have the flexibility to replace sanctions with community service for first-time offenders.Guerrero said lawmakers’ opposition to the current draft is unjustified because it includes provisions that exclude sanctions on the use of animals in farming and other economic activities. She also said that a lack of consensus in the commission could result in a decision to send the bill for discussion and approval directly to the full Assembly.The Broad Front Party’s Ligia Fallas also opposes the bill in its current form, but for different reasons: She thinks the sanctions are not severe enough.Fallas criticized Marín and other lawmakers for attempting to remove articles to punish animal torture and set prison sentences.“The current draft says, for example, that you can denounce and prosecute a person who abuses or tortures an animal only if there is a visible mark. So what happens when torture or abuse does not leave marks?” she said.Fallas also lamented that bullfights and other similar events “where torture systematically occurs” are now excluded from sanctions.The lawmaker filed a motion to include torture as a crime that would be punished with prison sentences ranging from 6 months to two years. The proposal aims to sanction “anyone who causes suffering, pain or prolonged agony to an animal.”The legislator on Feb. 22 will file, in a public event, a bill aimed at recognizing “animals’ sentience,” or “their capacity to feel.”Citizen actionDuring his presidential campaign, President Solís promised to prioritize the approval of Bill #18,298, but he failed to include it in the Legislative Assembly’s agenda during his first year in office.In November 2014, he pledged to include the animal welfare bill in the Assembly’s agenda for 2015, a promise to animal rights advocates who staged marches and public demonstrations. Solís complied later in December, but he then tabled the bill in February in exchange for a bill to build a new highway between San José and the Alajuela canton of San Ramón.The current lack of progress in the legislative commission is again prompting reaction from citizen advocacy groups who plan demonstrations in coming days to pressure lawmakers.The first group to protest will be “Somos Hermanos Animalistas” (“We are Pro-Animals”), who will hold a demonstration in front of the Legislative Assembly in downtown San José, on Wednesday at 3 p.m.Cases of animal abuse in Costa Rica are on the rise. The National Animal Health Service in early December reported that abuse complaints already had surpassed by 15 percent the number registered in 2014. Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Benefits outweigh risks in Philippines peace deal

first_img(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) SEEDS OF THE FIGHTING:Muslims in Mindanao first took up arms decades ago to defend what they see as their traditional homeland under threat by Christians. Tens of thousands have died in ethnic clashes and massacres that sowed bad blood for generations.Since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the U.S., Australia and other governments have looked at the southern third of the Philippines _ Mindanao Island and neighboring provinces _ as a second Afghanistan, a place where militants from Indonesia, Malaysia and Southeast Asia fled in order to escape crackdowns at home. They sought refuge with Muslim rebels and set up training grounds in their strongholds.For the rest of the Philippines, Mindanao conjures a place where warlords rule, ransom kidnappings are common and terrorists bomb churches and ambush travelers.RECOVERING FROM A FAILED DEAL:A deal granting autonomy to five Muslim provinces was signed in 1996 and implemented on paper years later, but it changed little in the poverty- and violence-stricken region. Elections were rigged, corruption rife, and political bosses with private armies ruled the day. Disgruntled guerrillas carried on with bombings and attacks under the banner of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front. A fresh autonomy proposal from then-President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo flopped in 2008. It was criticized for promising too much too soon and without public scrutiny.When President Benigno Aquino III was elected in 2010, he agreed to meet with the Moro rebel chief, Al Haj Murad _ something Arroyo did not do. The men met at the Tokyo airport, concluded that they could work together and set in motion a series of meetings in neighboring Malaysia, which has been facilitating the talks since 1997.The talks this time involved the so-called International Contact Group of representatives from the U.S., Europe and Muslim nations who acted as witnesses, observers and advisers. Negotiations under Aquino were initially kept under wraps but now are open to public input.High public trust in Aquino gave him the backing he needed to carry on with the peace talks, which he hopes to conclude by 2016, when his single six-year term ends.GIVE-AND-TAKE:After 32 rounds of calibrated negotiations, the outline of a deal came clear: a new autonomous region will take shape in the south, with Moro rebels giving up their quest for independence in exchange for broad powers to govern themselves. The central government will maintain control over defense and foreign affairs, while the Moros _ their aging leaders worn down by decades of fighting _ will exercise substantial powers locally, including the justice system and tax collection. Sharia law will be enforced but will apply only to Muslims. Comments   Share   ___Associated Press writer Jim Gomez contributed to this report.___Follow Hrvoje Hranjski on Twitter: Associated PressMANILA, Philippines (AP) – A tentative roadmap to peace in the southern Philippines announced this week is the first major step in the latest attempt to end a long and bloody insurgency waged by minority Muslims in the predominantly Christian nation. It carries the risk of failure that has been the fate of similar peace agreements, but strong domestic and international backing could boost its chances of success. Here’s a look at the background and the future of the deal: Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Bottoms up!

Don Shooter shows health improvement Parents, stop beating yourself up Unlike the previous peace deal, this one calls for rebels to disarm.THE PITFALLS:Many tricky details remain. That includes the exact extent of the Moro territory. Although broadly based on an existing autonomous region, the rebels want it expanded. Other potential stumbling blocks are how much tax revenue the locals will have to give the central government, and how and when the 11,000-strong rebel force will be disbanded.THE ABU SAYYAF:Al-Qaida-linked militants from the brutal Abu Sayyaf group, which gained notoriety with kidnappings and beheadings of foreign tourists, including Americans, are not part of any peace deal. Abu Sayyaf and the Moro rebels cross paths in several parts of the Philippines. The hope is that a broader peace agreement with the Moro rebels will isolate the extremists and deprive them of sanctuaries and logistical support.U.S. TROOPS:About 600 U.S. troops will continue to be based in the southern Philippines, training Filipino forces, exchanging intelligence and providing equipment. Mostly aimed at the Abu Sayyaf and their allies from the Indonesian-based Jemaah Islamiyah network, the U.S. forces are trying to ensure that the fragile region does not become a magnet for militants, which it may if peace deal falters.

We’re nottalking about a game, and we’re not even really talkingabout a practice. We’re talking about a minicamp workoutat Fan Fest! Kolb probably thought he was back at LincolnFinancial Field instead of University of Phoenix Stadium.Besides, when did you turn into Philly fan?Of course last season was a disappointment. Kolb would bethe first to tell you he should’ve thrown more than ninetouchdowns and fewer than eight interceptions in only ninestarts. He’d also tell you he should’ve made more thannine starts. I’m guessing he didn’t overly enjoy battlingturf toe and head injuries last season. I’m going to alsoassume Kolb didn’t enjoy feeling like a sitting duck inthe pocket because his left tackle didn’t/couldn’t blockfor him. Sure he had happy feet, but wouldn’t you? D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Kolb would’ve also benefitted from offseason workoutsafter being acquired from Philly last season. Save your“Cam Newton did just fine without OTA’s and Minicamp, andhe was a rookie” comments. Kolb is not Newton. Not evenclose. Newton has a legitimate chance to be a Hall ofFame quarterback. If he stays healthy, I believe Kolb willbecome a solid NFL starter (think along the lines of RichGannon) that can help a team win games, but will probablynever carry a team. It’s not like Kolb came to Arizona with a sense ofentitlement. Sure he got a nice contract, but he also knewthe Cards were somewhat desperate for someone who couldgive them a chance to win games. He didn’t demandoutrageous money. He came in, said the right things andput in the work to try and hastily learn a brand newsystem.Even Larry Fitzgerald commented during training camp howimpressed he was with Kolb’s work ethic. Of course youwant that to translate to the field, but things don’talways work out that way.I know the fans who booed Kolb in June are the same oneswho’ll be sporting No. 4 jerseys in November if he’shelping the Cards rack up wins. They also might be thesame people who demand patience when they’re struggling ina particular area of their life, but aren’t as forgivingtoward others. Assuming Kolb begins the season as the starter (and Ibelieve he should), he needs a strong start. This is afranchise that has high expectations and it should. IfKolb comes out and struggles, then feel free to expressyour frustration. But to lob jeers at a guy in his firsttrue offseason when he’s coming off a head injury is a bitmuch.

NBC searches for Olympic clips to go viral

first_imgNBC searches for Olympic clips to go viral Red Gerard, of the United States, jumps during the men’s slopestyle final at Phoenix Snow Park at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, Sunday, Feb. 11, 2018. (AP Photo/Gregory Bull) STAMFORD, Conn. – In a room lined with computer terminals buzzing all night during the Olympics, an intern raises a hand. He’s spotted an amusing piece of film footage of a dropped walkie-talkie skittering down a mountain closed to competition because of bad weather, eluding the grasp of a couple of skiers trying to stop it.A producer edits the film into a brief clip and sends it electronically to a room down the hall, where a social media team posts it on NBC’s Olympic website, Facebook, Twitter and other social media destinations. Within a few days, it has been seen more than 1.6 million times.Welcome to NBC’s Highlights Factory, responsible for culling the best and oddest moments of the Pyeongchang Olympics and blanketing the world with them.The network, which paid $963 million for the rights to show the Olympics in the United States, has built a facility for some 2,500 staff members in Pyeongchang. But it also has around 1,000 people working in an office off the Connecticut Turnpike, and for each Olympics it is increasing its domestic workforce, said Tim Canary, vice-president of engineering.The curling and cross-country competitions are called by announcers working in booths in Connecticut, not South Korea. The popular online “Olympic Zone” show is fully staffed here, and the office opened in 2012 is the nexus for everything its cameras collect.Then there are the sleep-deprived staffers of the Highlight Factory, who are responsible for combing through and cataloguing every piece of footage shot by NBC and the Olympic-run feed for other broadcasters. There are some 778 hours of live competition in the games, said Eric Hamilton, director of digital video production.“Pretty much every moment is the most important moment in somebody’s life, some athlete’s life,” he said. “It’s the moment that they’ve prepared for for years, and they have just a few seconds in which to do it. Our job is to draw the curtain back on that and let everyone see it.”The staff members produce the typical clips of game-winning goals and gold-medal runs down the mountain. A recent 12-hour shift that ended at 8 a.m. produced some 130 videos for dissemination online.“We train the interns to note not only the obvious stuff, but to see through things that are hidden in plain sight,” Hamilton said.Cameras catch the competition, but also the moments before they start and when they’re over. They follow coaches biting their nails in the stands and family members who have followed loved ones across the globe. At the figure skating rink, cameras go into the workout room and the booth where competitors wait for scores. They catch final conversations between coaches and athletes.Through these backstage moments, Hamilton has found that the young athletes competing in the extreme sports that made traditionalists wince — the halfpipe, the slopestyle races — display some of the best camaraderie and sportsmanship at the Olympics.Hamilton never would have predicted that 6 million people would watch a video from the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games of an athlete trying to drink out of the wrong side of a water bottle. Those are the moments that make the Olympics become more than a sporting event and a part of culture, upon which NBC’s business depends.“That’s when the Olympics get fun compared to other sports,” Hamilton said. “On every day there are very interesting things that can happen across all the different sports.”The most popular clips from Pyeongyang so far are a mixture: figure skater Yura Min’s wardrobe malfunction , when she almost lost the top of her costume; the shirtless Tongan flag bearer’s return at the opening ceremony; a halfpipe crash by Yuto Totsuka ; and gold medal-winning snowboard runs by Shaun White and Red Gerard .Hamilton’s favourite moment — his eyes even mist up recalling it — involved the aftermath of Gerard’s victory . It’s a scene where the 17-year-old is caught between his old life and the fame that awaits him. A handler is ready to guide him through a gauntlet of reporters when Gerard asks for a brief delay.“Can I give my mom a hug?” he says, and does so.___More AP Olympic coverage: https://wintergames.ap.orgcenter_img by David Bauder, The Associated Press Posted Feb 17, 2018 10:46 pm PDT Last Updated Feb 18, 2018 at 1:20 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more
