Paraguayan Joint Task Force Increases its Presence to Improve Security

Posted on by

first_imgThe JTF sent reinforcements to the area to protect civilians from the EPP and find those responsible for the killings. Military authorities have ordered a “significant contingent” of service members to be deployed to the departments of San Pedro and Amambay, said Interior Minister Francisco de Vargas, who declined to disclose how many additional Troops had been deployed to those departments for security reasons. Law enforcement authorities have been working in the region for two years to eradicate the terrorist organization and the Armed Peasants Group (ACA), an offshoot of the EPP. Five days after the first attack, on July 17, a second shooting killed three more police officers; Sergeants Agustín Romero, 40, Roque Salinas, 28, and Crispín Rojas, 34, were in a patrol car when they were ambushed and shot near the Yaguareté Forest subdivision, in the district of Santa Rosa del Aguaray. “At this time, the Military is in the area of Santa Rosa del Aguaray cooperating with investigations and with the search for the eight people suspected of perpetrating the attacks,” Colonel Jorge Mieres, director of communications at the Army Social Communications Division (DICOSO), said. Paraguay’s Armed Forces have increased their presence in the country’s northern region in response to recent attacks allegedly by the Paraguayan People’s Army (EPP) that killed five police officers who were part of the Joint Task Force (JTF). A recent intelligence report states that EPP and ACA terrorist cells are moving beyond their original area of influence – the departments of San Pedro and Concepción – and are also operating in the department of Amambay, the minister said. On July 12, suspected EPP operatives killed National Police Sergeants Adalberto Candia Sanabria, 44, and Egidio Ramón Chávez, 32, in an ambush in the Yaguareté Forest, on the border between the departments of San Pedro and Amambay. “They were ambushed by about eight people who rained gunfire down on them and then set the patrol car on fire,” Major Alfredo Jonás Ramírez, spokesperson for the Paraguayan JTF, said during a July 14 press conference. The EPP attacks police officers who are working with the JTF because the terrorist group considers them “the enemy,” according to Minister De Vargas. For example, the EPP has held police officer Edelio Morínigo hostage since July 5, 2014. The operation also offered several lectures in which officials discouraged young people from joining illegal groups and engaging in unlawful activities, such as drug trafficking. EPP attacks law enforcement officers For example, on August 1-2, Troops, police, and civilian government agencies cooperated to conduct Operation Ñepohano y Py’a Guapy II, an initiative that provided medical and dental care to 6,000 people. However, law enforcement authorities will not be intimidated by EPP’s attacks, Minister De Vargas said during a July 18 press conference. By Dialogo August 13, 2015 With regard to the terrorist actions carried out for the last several years by the so-called EPP in the northern region of the country, I think only the Armed Forces should fight them, given that this criminal group turned into a guerrilla force, which only soldiers, deputy officers and military officers are trained to fight, and for which they would have to have the unconditional support of the Law, in order not to be accused later before the Courts by Organizations dedicated to doing this. I believe that the Joint Task Forces should be put out of order because it has been shown that up to now the results for which it was established, it has not delivered positive results, even though it has a large budget and the support of most of the Paraguayan population to this effect. Why don’t they seize the assets belonging to the families of the EPP and put them in jail. It won’t take long for them to inform where their criminal relatives are. Investigate the M.E.C. It’s a shame the students can’t read or write…Books don’t make it to rural areas…nor do they have a Library…Please, let’s motivate [students] to read through teachers, parents…students…the educational community in general. In addition to confronting the EPP and the ACA, the JTF works closely with local residents, including meeting with them regularly and helping provide basic services, such as health care and education, to the region. last_img read more

Forecasters: Delayed Storm Will Drop 6-8 Inches of Snow on Long Island

Posted on by

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The winter storm that was expected to roll into Long Island late Wednesday night was slightly delayed, but projections of between 6 to 8 inches of snow remains the same. Long Islanders expecting to see at least a few inches of snow on the ground Thursday morning woke up to little to no accumulation because cold air coming from the north didn’t make its way to the region until about 5 a.m., Tim Morrin, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service’s Upton office, said.At that point, rain started to transition to snow, which picked up in intensity as most people were hitting the roads for the morning commute. The weather service issued a winter storm warning for both Nassau and Suffolk counties until 7 p.m. Thursday. Morrin said snow will fall throughout the day and should impact the evening commute. The storm is expected to taper off sometime between 5 and 7 p.m., Morrin said. Temperatures will also plummet during the course of the day, dropping into the 20s in the afternoon and then becoming cooler overnight. The weather service is warning commuters of hazardous travel conditions “due to falling temperatures and road icing.” The snow will also cause reduced visibility. “A winter storm warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather conditions are expected or occurring,” the weather service said in a statement. “Significant snow amounts of snow are forecast that will make travel dangerous. Only travel in an emergency.” Drivers who must travel should have a flashlight, food and water in their vehicle, the agency said.last_img read more

It’s time for everyone to step up their game (and here’s an easy way to get started)

Posted on by

first_img 14SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Michael Hudson Dr. Michael Hudson started his first business when he was just 7 years old…riding his bicycle from house to house selling greeting cards and holiday gifts. Since then he … Web: michaelhudson.com Details “People are very open-minded about new things—as long as they’re exactly like the old ones.”   -Charles KetteringOne of my favorite books is Change is Good…You Go First by Mac Anderson and Tom Feltenstein. The title says it all and speaks volumes about the way we tend to look at the idea of doing things differently.It’s a natural, human response. On the one hand we prefer continuing to do what we know, what feels comfortable, and what we perceive as safe. On the other hand we fear venturing into the unknown, facing an increased risk of failure, and coming to grips with the possibility that we were wrong.However there is only one constant in life, and that constant is change.If you are going to lead in any capacity today, then you need to raise your game—to understand change, accept change, and cause change (frequently).Nowhere is this more important for credit unions than in the area of governance. More specifically in pushing to have (current and future) board members step up their game so they are better equipped to fulfill their responsibilities.OK, I know that I am treading into difficult territory here. And I fully understand the urge to push back against an argument for changing things that have created past success.But the fact is that the world of boards is changing in both the for-profit and not-for-profit worlds. A recent post on the Harvard Business Review website shares a number of valuable insights that credit union board leaders would be well served to consider (it is a must read for all CU leaders).The post reveals that it’s not just about who is willing to serve, but rather about their capacity to contribute, the quality and relevance of their experience, their areas of expertise, and their understanding of strategy.From where I sit as someone who has had the privilege of facilitating planning sessions for credit unions for the past 15 years, the article reminded me of the importance of board members (and frankly all CU leaders) committing to develop their capacity to lead—the most important way they can step up their game and increase their impact.I know, you already have enough to do and there’s just not time for one more thing.But consider this…If you schedule just 10 minutes per day five days each week to expand your knowledge and understanding of the strategic challenges and opportunities facing your credit union you will end up investing more than 40 hours in building your capacity this year.Can you imagine what you might learn in over 40 hours and how that might enable you to be more effective in leading your credit union?Here are some possible ways to invest your 10 minutes each day:Read one or more of the credit union industry daily e-mails—skim, scan, and scroll the posts and pick one or two that capture your interestRead a business focused blog like the one from the Harvard Business Review mentioned in this articleSkim a magazine that you wouldn’t normally read to broaden your perspective on today’s marketplaceWatch a business or financial news program on TVSearch YouTube.com for videos related to business, financial services, marketing, technology, or other concepts of interest and watch a coupleCheck out a visit Ted.com and watch a TedTalk on a subject of interestHave coffee with someone who isn’t familiar with your credit union and gain their insightsYou get the idea—find ways to explore and build your knowledge about the world of business and what it takes to succeed today, as well as what it will take to succeed tomorrow, and you’ll become a more valuable leader for your credit union.So how will you invest your 10 minutes tomorrow?last_img read more

George McGinnis

Posted on by

first_imgGeorge McGinnis attended Indianapolis Washington High School from 1966-69.  His Washington High School team was the 1969 state champions in basketball.  His coach at Washington was Bill Springer who I knew personally because he was a coach at Jennings County before he went to Washinton.  From there he attended one year at Indiana University where he averaged 29.9 points per game and was named an All-American.  George then went pro with the Indiana Pacers.  He led them to back-to-back ABA championships and was the league’s MVP in 1973.Why am I giving you all of these statistics?  It is because it took almost 50 years after his time at Washington High School in Indianapolis and all of these accolades before he was named to the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.  Why is this significant?  Four other members of the Indiana Pacers are already members of this Hall of Fame and most of them played after McGinnis.  Bobby Leonard, who was George’s coach while he played for the Pacers thinks it was politics.  Leonard did not divulge what he meant by this.  I saw McGinnis play basketball, and few (if any) Indiana players were better than he was at any level.  (Information for this article came from article that appeared in the Indianapolis Star.last_img read more
