Mark Norman affair needs public inquiry Scheer says

first_imgOTTAWA — Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer says Canada needs a public inquiry into the case of Vice-Admiral Mark Norman.On Parliament Hill this afternoon, Scheer says a full investigation is justified to examine how the military’s former second-in-command came to be charged with over alleged leaks of cabinet secrets about a shipbuilding contract.The case against Norman collapsed last week after Crown prosecutors got new information from the defence that convinced them they stood no reasonable chance of landing a conviction.Scheer says he has questions about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s role in launching the original leak investigation and whether the government behaved improperly in resisting the release of documents to Norman’s lawyers.Despite statements from prosecutors that the prime minister didn’t put political pressure on them, Scheer says Trudeau interfered in the case.He also says Norman deserves a personal apology from the prime minister.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Al Sudais Urges Muslims to ‘Avoid Crowding’ Mecca During Three Summits

Rabat – Head of the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques Sheikh Abdulrahman Al-Sudais has called on local and international visitors to avoid crowding the Grand Mosque in Mecca during the last ten nights of Ramadan, the most blessed days of the holy month. During the last teen days of Ramadan, Muslims from all over the world converge to Mecca and Medina, site of the two holy mosques to perform Umrah. Praising Saudi Arabia’s royal family, Al Sudais said that Muslims in the area should cooperate to secure the success of the three summits convened by King Saudi Arabia this month. The summits, scheduled from May 30 to  June 1, are convened by the Saudi King who called for urgent Arab League, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, and Gulf Cooperation Summits.Saudi Arabia stated that the urgent meetings will take place to discuss “aggressions and their consequences” in the region.Al Sudais justified his controversial argument, emphasizing that his advice is in line with Sharia law as the number of worshippers increase at the Mecca mosques.In addition to Su Al Sudais, Saudi Gazette also published a statement from the traffic security authorities who “urged the public to use alternative routes for vehicular traffic” in Jeddah and Mecca during the emergency summits.The news outlet quoted Assistant Commander of the Umrah Security Forces for Traffic Affairs Mohammed Al-Bassami, who urged the public in Jeddah and Mecca to “fully cooperate with the security and traffic authorities.” read more

Lasanthas family disappointed at state of progress on probe

“Justice need be done not as a favour. Justice need be done to prevent a repetition. Else, they would have died not for the people but for a chosen few to replace the defeated. Murder, when it is committed by criminals outside of politics, is investigated in haste and convictions obtained in a couple of years. Failure to bring to justice those responsible for the murder of Lasantha could even open the door to the prime suspect or suspects to be elected the President or Prime Minister of our land at a future date. Who knows? We remember Lasantha who revolutionised the journalistic landscape of Sri Lanka at a time when none dared. He was brave, committed and resolute in his task to eradicate corruption within the halls of government. If the authorities cannot bring justice, let us commit ourselves to perpetuate his name amongst the people on whose behalf he lay down his life,” he said.Meanwhile, Raisa Wickrematunge, who also spoke at the graveside memorial to mark the ninth anniversary of Lasantha Wickremetunga’s murder today, said that her uncle happened to be killed in broad daylight, in Colombo, near an Air Force checkpoint and next to a High Security Zone. She said the way he was killed was clearly premeditated. Nine years have passed since Lasantha was done to death in the most dastardly fashion. Nine years have passed and justice has not been done. Murder, not restricted to Lasantha but of other journalists, was carried out with impunity at a time when apathy reigned amongst the people. At present there is a sense of hopelessness at the manner the present administration is handling investigations. Should political authorities be guiding murder investigations, one may ask. Some may argue that it is the duty to do so since the very same murders have been used to garner votes at election time. Presently, the murders are used to remind people of how brutal a regime was when they occurred. But what about bringing the perpetrators to book? Many such investigations are all but concluded. The need is to arrest the suspects and charge them for murder,” he said in the statement. The family of slain journalist Lasantha Wickremetunga today expressed disappointment at the state of the progress on the investigations into his murder.Lasantha Wickrematunge’s brother Lal Wickrematunge, in a statement read out by his daughter Minal, at the graveside of Lasantha Wickrematunge, said that  nine years after his death justice has not been served. Lal Wickremetunga said that letting time pass by till it is convenient may turn out to be counterproductive, as history has evidenced. He said the last regime was defeated on the backs of those committed journalists who lay down their lives when even those in Parliament were quivering before a marauding group in control of every sphere of human activity in our land. “Over nine years, there has been little in terms of tangible progress in bringing the perpetrators of his murder to account. And we are the lucky ones – interest and investigations into so many of the other cases is not sustained,” she said.She also said that it is time that Sri Lanka works towards a society where critique is responded to with informed debate, not with senseless violence and where all forms of violence are not tolerated or worse, hidden away, because they are inconvenient to examine.

The NBA Has A New Generation Of Hometown Heroes

Matt BarnesSacramento Noah is more willing to shell out for tickets for some of his many New York supporters, but he has set a modest budget for himself. He is adamant that he won’t let things get as far out of hand as they did for Rose, who had dozens of friends and family members come to each home game in Chicago.“His situation got out of control to where he was scrambling, trying to round up tickets right before games,” Noah said. “I definitely don’t wanna get like Derrick was.”Rose said he developed a nightly routine before Bulls’ home games: Get to the arena three hours before tipoff to work on his body; sit in hot and cold tubs; and assign tickets for his loved ones to pick up. (Some players — including Louisiana native Langston Galloway, who joined the Pelicans this past summer — say they hate the inconvenience of creating ticket lists before games, as it interrupts pregame routines such as watching film of that night’s opponent.)“I ended up just buying a box [at the United Center]. Had to get anywhere from eight to 10 tickets every night, plus a [suite] that held 16 people. Probably 26 to 30 tickets a game, for every single home game,” said Rose, describing a batch of tickets with a face value of six figures each season. “That’s crazy, right?”Asked whether the Bulls gave him extra tickets or the suite since he was a star and 2011 MVP, Rose, who’s earning $21 million this season, responded, “What do you think? I wish it had been like that. I had to pay for everything.”3Rose wouldn’t say how much, exactly, he used to spend in Chicago on tickets. The Bulls confirmed that they didn’t give Rose any free tickets or discounts.Playing for your hometown team isn’t all ticket headaches; there’s plenty of upside, too.Howard, for instance, says he loves being able to enjoy regular Sunday dinners with his family. Bucks forward Steve Novak said that because he grew up an hour from Milwaukee and knew the city well before he signed there, he faces fewer potential distractions from basketball. And Wade said his ticket distribution has surprisingly become easier since signing with the Bulls.“When I used to come back to Chicago, it was always really hectic, because my family could only see me play in person once or twice a year. So for those games, I’d get about 50 tickets for my family. And that’s serious money,” said Wade, who added that he later vowed to never spend so much on tickets again. “Now I play here 41 times a year. So I can lower the number of tickets for each game and spread things out over the whole season. And it’s much easier.”Players said veterans generally are better about standing firm on money than their younger teammates. Many hire staff to help handle their ticket-distribution responsibilities so as not to hinder their game-to-game focus.Haslem said he used to buy 20 or more tickets for every home game — like Rose in Chicago — but began managing his finances better about six years into his career, when he put his stepmother in charge of his tickets.“I appointed her as my head of ticket sales, because she just tells everybody to go to hell. She don’t care,” Haslem said. “She tells people, ‘You ain’t been there with him since the beginning, so you ain’t coming to his games!’ ”Some players find that a good, old-fashioned guilt trip is the most effective way to get people to stop asking for tickets: Make them aware of how much the extra seats cost, and most people will think twice before requesting more.“With a lot of them, I don’t think they know that we have to pay for those extra tickets,” says Knicks forward and Brooklyn native Lance Thomas, who, until last season, never had a guaranteed contract and was careful with his money. “So I make sure to let them know afterwards, so it doesn’t become a habit.” Quincy AcyDallas Veteran players who joined a team within 100 miles of their birthplace this season After being traded from Chicago to New York this past summer, Derrick Rose was elated when free agent center Joakim Noah, his close friend and ex-Bulls teammate, signed with the Knicks. But Rose, who had played in his hometown of Chicago for eight years, had a piece of advice for Noah now that he’d be playing for a team a mile from where he grew up.“I just told him to be careful,” Rose said, after congratulating Noah, “because everybody’s going to ask you for tickets, and the demand is about to be crazy.”Noah is far from the only guy who’s getting a brisk education in what it’s like to play at home 41 times a year. An unprecedented number of NBA veterans signed with their hometown teams this past summer, and many of them are encountering an awkward predicament: What to do with all these seemingly random junior-high classmates who blitz them with ticket requests?According to the Elias Sports Bureau, 122 NBA veterans switched teams this past summer. Of that group, 10 — or 8 percent — joined a club within 100 miles of their birthplace, according to an analysis run by David Corby of Basketball-Reference.com at FiveThirtyEight’s request.1There’s no way of consistently defining NBA players’ hometowns that would work for every case. The definition we used generally identifies players most fans would consider to have returned to their hometown, but there are exceptions. For example, Dallas-area native Deron Williams’s 2015 signing with the Mavericks isn’t counted since he was born in West Virginia.Meanwhile, when there is more than one team within 100 miles of a player’s birthplace, he might be counted when joining a team that isn’t the closest to his hometown — even when he was previously playing for a team that’s closer. For instance, our analysis includes the trade that sent Philadelphia native Marc Jackson from the 76ers to the New Jersey Nets before the 2005-06 season. Distance between a player’s birthplace and his team was calculated as the crow flies. That’s the highest number of veteran players to make their way home during a single offseason since 1988, the year unrestricted free agency took root in the NBA, and more than triple the average annual number.2Basketball-Reference.com’s analysis counted players in the year they moved to their hometown teams. For consistency, that was considered the year before the season ended, even in the case of the season after the 1998-1999 lockout, which both started and ended in 1999; transactions before that season are counted in our analysis as 1998. The analysis excludes rookies and veterans with fewer than five career win shares as of Jan. 30, as well as players who were acquired by their hometown teams but never appeared on the roster during the season. PLAYERTEAM JOINED Jeff TeagueIndiana Langston GallowayNew Orleans Randy FoyeBrooklyn Dwyane WadeChicago Cole AldrichMinnesota Joakim NoahNew York Dwight HowardAtlanta Gerald HendersonPhiladelphia Excludes players with fewer than five career win shares as of Jan. 30, as well as players who were acquired by their hometown teams but haven’t appeared on the roster during the season. Players listed in descending order of win shares. It’s unclear what caused the spike in players going home this past summer. It might have been a fluke. But perhaps LeBron James’s decision to return to Cleveland in 2014 for a second stint with the Cavaliers, 30 miles from his hometown of Akron, Ohio, influenced more players to consider the possibility.“I think that’s definitely had an impact,” said Miami native Udonis Haslem, who has spent his entire NBA career with the Heat and watched ex-teammates James and Dwyane Wade leave South Beach to go back home to Cleveland and Chicago, respectively. “There’s nothing like playing for the team you grew up watching as a kid. You can’t replace that.”That sense of home initially appealed to 2015 All-Star Jeff Teague, who was thrilled to be traded from Atlanta to play for his hometown Indiana Pacers in June. (The three-team swap — which sent George Hill, also an Indianapolis native, away from his hometown club — was the only trade to bring a veteran back to his hometown last offseason. The other nine players making a return trip all signed as free agents.)Teague, a point guard with a mural of Indianapolis tattoos on his left arm, says he prioritizes his family; after the trade he moved into the basement of the house he bought for his parents. But as much as he loves being around his folks, the 28-year-old said in an interview that playing at home “is definitely not what I expected” so far. It’s been challenging to deal with so many people coming out of the woodwork to ask him for tickets, Teague said.“Honestly, it’s a lot easier playing in a place where you don’t know anyone, because no one really bothers you,” said Teague. “At home, everybody knows you. People ask for everything. And I try to tell them, ‘Talk to my parents,’ or just turn them down. But it’s hard to say no. Sometimes I just end up giving into it.”Requests, some of them from family friends he doesn’t know, weigh on Teague. “I end up having to buy and buy and buy, because there’s no way around it,” he said. “It’s not cheap, and it’s definitely not ideal.”Generally speaking, NBA teams allow their players to give out three complimentary tickets for home games, and two free tickets for road contests. But some teams handle their distribution differently, according to interviews with two dozen players in NBA locker rooms. A few clubs offer better seats than others, and in a handful of smaller markets — where sellouts are rarer — teams are occasionally more flexible in letting players have extra tickets.When players need more than their own allotment of free tickets, they do have options. The most common solution is to borrow a teammate’s seats that night, then return the favor later in the season, whenever the club visits that teammate’s hometown.“That usually works. But it can get a little hairy if you don’t ask people far enough in advance,” said Cole Aldrich, who grew up near Minneapolis and signed to play for the Timberwolves this past summer. He recalled a preseason game in Kansas City, Missouri, that led to a ticket rush between him and teammates Andrew Wiggins and Brandon Rush, who “were all fighting over our teammates’ extras right up until the game,” Aldrich said. (High ticket demand can extend beyond players’ hometowns: Aldrich, Wiggins and Rush starred at Kansas in college.)Players can often buy additional tickets if they run out of their own and can’t get any from teammates. But not everyone is willing to pay for acquaintances and distant relatives to attend games for free.“I bought my parents courtside seats, and I got a suite for my kids. Other than that, people are grown and there’s this thing called Ticketmaster that they can use,” said Dwight Howard, the Atlanta native who in July signed with the Hawks. “Everybody knew I was gonna handle it that way, because I sat down with them in advance and told them I’m not spending extra money on things like that.” read more

Schumacher to turn 45 while comatose in French hospital

first_imgKehm told reporters this week that the former racer was not skiing fast when he fell.“He seems to have hit a rock as he took a turn. It was a chain of unfortunate circumstances,” she said. Jean Todt, former head of the team, visited Schumacher’s bedside on Thursday. Schumacher’s wife Corinna, their two teenage children, and his father and brother were also there.The hospital and Schumacher’s manager had briefed the press daily since the accident. But they did not do so on Thursday, instead promising to communicate only if there was something new to report. Schumacher has had two operations to remove bleeding and pressure on his brain.His media representative, Sabine Kehm, said Wednesday Schumacher was stable though still critical.Hospital under intense media pressureThe hospital has been faced with intense media pressure from the worldwide interest in its famous patient. A vacant lot nearby has been turned into an impromptu parking lot for numerous television satellite vans.Kehm earlier in the week said some people had tried to sneak into Schumacher’s room, one dressed as a priest.The three medical professors treating him — two neurosurgeons and the head of the anesthetic and intensive care department — have also been thrown into the spotlight.They have appeared at the two press conferences to explain the latest developments. While they have refused to speculate on how Schumacher’s condition may evolve, they agree that his age and fitness could help with recovery.Schumacher’s accident has prompted an outpouring of sympathy from fans shocked to see their idol hovering so close to death after having cheated it so many times on the racing track.Yet questions have emerged over exactly how the accident happened in a small, seemingly innocuous off-piste section of Meribel located between two ski slopes — one classed easy and the other intermediate.Prosecutors have opened a probe into the accident, as is common practice in France in such cases, and are exploring the theory that Schumacher was skiing at great speed when he fell. That factor could go to establishing liability or negligence, depending on circumstances.The prosecutors are also looking at whether the limits of the pistes next to the area where accident happened were correctly marked, and whether the safety releases on Schumacher’s skis operated properly. The German newspaper Bild reported the skis were rented and one of their safety releases did not open at the moment of the accident.Prosecutors were not expected to make any statement on the investigation until early next week. FORMULA ONE LEGEND Michael Schumacher is to turn 45 on Friday while lying comatose in a French hospital after suffering critical head injuries in a ski accident.Doctors and family members were today tight-lipped about the condition of the German racing great, who has been hospitalised since Sunday, when he slammed his head against a rock while skiing in the French Alps.There have been conflicting statements about the speed the seven-time world racing champion was going when the tragedy befell him in the Meribel ski resort, where he has a property. The rock impact split the helmet Schumacher was wearing in two, according to a source close to the investigation.The Ferrari F1 team where Schumacher spent many years announced it would on Friday hold a “silent gathering” in front of the Grenoble hospital to mark the birthday of the retired sportsman, who is being kept in an induced coma.But Schumacher’s fan club in his childhood town of Kerpen said any celebration of the birthday would be in bad taste. She added that Schumacher was with his 14-year-old son Mick at the time of the accident, as well as a small group of friends.“He was not going quickly, because it seems he helped a friend who had fallen down,” she said.Schumacher dominated Formula One from his debut in 1991, winning more world titles and races than any other driver.He first retired aged 37 but was unable to resist the lure of the track. In 2010, he came out of retirement but was unable to recover his previous performance and quit for good in 2012.As an F1 racer, Schumacher was known for his daring overtaking manoeuvres, his at-times almost reckless abandon in the pursuit of victory and his mastery of tricky conditions presented by rain.- © AFP, 2014Croke Park bound UCF Knights claim Fiesta Bowl>The black card offences explained in a simple graphic>last_img read more

Taxe carbone la commission européenne finalise son projet

first_imgTaxe carbone : la commission européenne finalise son projetEurope – La Commission européenne va très prochainement proposer un projet de taxe carbone qui, pour être mis en œuvre, devra être unanimement adopté par les États membres. Cette taxe s’appliquerait aux secteurs du bâtiment, de l’agriculture et du transport routier.Le projet contenu dans une proposition de révision de la directive sur la taxation de l’énergie, devrait faire l’objet d’un débat au sein du collège des commissaires le 23 juin prochain.La Commission propose de fixer à 20 euros le montant plancher par tonne de CO2, et ce quelle que soit l’énergie utilisée. Des exemptions et des réductions seront toutefois prévues, notamment pour le secteur agricole, les ménages les plus pauvres ou encore les zones rurales isolées. Quant aux secteurs concernés par la mise en œuvre progressive du système payant de quotas de CO2, comme l’industrie lourde, l’aviation ou la production d’électricité, ils ne seraient pas concernés par la taxe carbone européenne.L’objectif de ce système de taxation est double, indique le texte que s’est procuré Reuters. Il doit “corriger les prix de l’énergie pour refléter les coûts des émissions de CO2 et les contenus en énergie, dans le but de changer les comportements, les technologies utilisées” et ce, tout en s’assurant “que les États membres peuvent avoir des politiques fiscales efficaces sans peur de pertes de compétitivité au sein du marché intérieur”.Après avoir été présenté officiellement par la Commission européenne, le projet sera étudié par les États membres. Pour que le texte soit adopté, les 27 devront se prononcer favorablement à l’unanimité. Si tel est le cas, la taxe entrera progressivement en vigueur entre 2013 et 2018. Ce système est très différent de celui que Nicolas Sarkozy avait proposé en mars dernier après l’abandon du projet français de contribution climat énergie. S’il devait entrer en vigueur, chaque pays membre de l’UE pourrait utiliser le produit de la taxe comme bon lui semble.En taxant les secteurs du transport et du bâtiment, qui engendrent respectivement 23 et 10% des émissions de CO2 européennes, la Commission espère donner aux États membres les moyens d’atteindre l’objectif européen de réduction des émissions de 20% d’ici à 2020, et par rapport à 1990.Le 6 juin 2010 à 09:41 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Autopsy Ore officer shooting suspect killed self

first_imgLawrence Cambra OREGON CITY, Ore. — Oregon authorities say an autopsy shows an 88-year-old man who set fire to his house and fatally shot a police officer also killed himself.A statement released Tuesday by Clackamas County sheriff’s Sgt. Robert Wurpes says Lawrence Cambra’s death was a suicide caused by a single gunshot to the chest. Investigators previously said the sheriff’s office SWAT team shot and killed Cambra on Sunday, after he set fire to his Oregon City home and shot reserve officer Robert Libke in the face. Police say it’s still unclear what caused Cambra’s behavior. The man and his 70-year-old girlfriend had been involved in an altercation earlier that day.Clackamas County officials didn’t say whether any SWAT team bullets actually hit Cambra. Cambra had a reputation for quarrels with neighbors and a record of domestic disputes.Residents of an Oregon City trailer park where he once lived told The Oregonian that he picked fights and killed his own homing pigeons after someone complained about them.Cambra’s girlfriend got a restraining order against him a year ago after reporting he threatened to get a gun and get rid of people. He was jailed at one point, but she declined to prosecute and the order was dropped.last_img read more

John Coltrane A Love Supreme For The Record

first_img For The Record: Little Big Town’s ‘The Road …” The legend transformed his personal struggles into musical uplift, creating a historic album filled with trend-setting jazz experimentationPhilip MerrillGRAMMYs May 3, 2018 – 2:53 pm A controversial leader of experimental jazz, legendary saxophone player John Coltrane recorded his studio album A Love Supreme in December 1964 and it was released the following month, becoming for many his most-beloved piece of work. Filled with spiritual exaltation, his abundance of talent balanced free expression with just enough traditional jazz feel to keep its four heartfelt tracks accessible. Dave Chappelle For The Record: ‘The Age Of Spin …’ Pearl Jam: ‘Ten’ | For The Record For The Record: ‘The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill’ For The Record: Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’ Kendrick Lamar, ‘DAMN.’: For The Record For The Record: B.B. King’s “Auld Lang Syne” The sidemen in the quartet on A Love Supreme were bass player Jimmy Garrison, drummer Elvin Jones and pianist McCoy Tyner. Coltrane is playing on tenor sax and chants the four-note theme “a love supreme” with himself, later layered by overdubs.The suite’s four parts are “Acknowledgement,” “Resolution,” “Pursuance,” and “Psalm.” In “Psalm” Coltrane performs a poem by playing it on his sax. The text was provided in the album’s liner notes. It closes, “God breathes through us so completely … so gently we hardly feel it … yet, it is our everything. Thank you God.”The reception of A Love Supreme was major. The album sold a half-million copies by 1970, more than 10 times Coltrane’s usual level of sales. In addition, at the 8th GRAMMY Awards, the album brought him his first career nominations for Best Instrumental Jazz Performance — Small Group Or Soloist With A Small Group and for Best Original Jazz Composition.The album also has a lasting legacy through other artists’ patronage to the masterpiece. John McLaughlin and Carlos Santana covered “Acknowledgement” on their 1972 album Love Devotion Surrender, titling their track “A Love Supreme.” The GRAMMY-nominated U2 song “Angel Of Harlem” calls out Coltrane and his legendary album as being spiritually present in New York City while “the street sounds like a symphony.”To celebrate the legacy of Coltrane’s pioneering work, including A Love Supreme as the pinnacle of his creative output, the Recording Academy honored Coltrane with a posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award in 1992. In 1999 A Love Supreme was inducted into the GRAMMY Hall Of Fame, along with his 1957 album Blue Train.A Love Supreme was also inducted into the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry in 2015, ensuring its preservation for future generations. Its manuscript is preserved at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History as one of the Treasures of American History.

first_imgRey, Finn and Poe may soon find their embrace interrupted by Thanos, who appears to have escaped the Marvel Cinematic Universe and entered the Star Wars galaxy. @ScottWamplerBMD Twitter Thanos has snapped half of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a Reddit group and four of the Simpsons out of existence, but now he’s coming for the rest of pop culture.Scott Wampler, news editor at BirthMoviesDeath.com, kicked off a Twitter thread on Friday by Photoshopping the Avengers: Infinity War villain into the photo Star Wars: Episode 9 director JJ Abrams posted as that movie wrapped.It certainly puts a new spin on Rey, Finn and Poe’s embrace. Did the cheeky purple genocidal chappy just wipe out half of the Star Wars universe? People then began adding him to scenes from other movies too. He looks like he’s always been at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. Wampler decided to kick off a Thanos Photoshop contest, which runs until Tuesday.First published at 5:46 a.m. PT.Updated at 7:29 a.m. PT: Clarifies Wampler’s title.

Costa Rica begins fumigating planes at international airports to halt spread of

first_imgCosta Rica’s National Animal Health Service (SENASA) this week began fumigating all aircraft entering the country as well as some flights leaving its international terminals in order to prevent the spread of animal disease across borders.The measure is part of a public health program that seeks to establish a sanitary barrier to prevent the transmission of exotic diseases, especially those that can be transmitted from animals to humans, the agency stated.SENASA hopes to avoid the entry here of West Nile Virus, equine encephalitis, yellow fever, bluetongue, which affects livestock, and other emerging diseases.SENASA staff are fumigating the cargo area as well as baggage carried on all planes entering the country. They are also fumigating planes departing Costa Rica and flying to Mexico, Dominican Republic and all Central American countries. The process takes about five minutes and is not causing any flight delays, the agency reported.SENASA Director Bernardo Jaén said vector-borne diseases, mainly those transmitted by insects, are currently of high concern to all international health agencies and are becoming an increasingly serious problem — economically and in terms of public and animal health — for several countries.The cost of the fumigation, which ranges from ₡10,000 to ₡20,000 ($18.50 to $37) depending on the type of aircraft, will be charged to each airline, Jaén said.SENASA will maintain round-the-clock fumigation staff at the country’s three international airports, Juan Santamaría (SJO), Daniel Oduber (LIR) and Tobías Bolaños (SYQ).
