Costa Ricas ongoing strike hits tourism industry hard

The alert recommends monitoring local media for updates and exercising caution if in the vicinity of a demonstration.In a statement to The Tico Times, Information Officer Hakim Hasan said the alert is a routine process, not meant to raise alarm but to help tourists prepare for their travel.“We have complete confidence in our Costa Rican colleagues’ ability to manage the situation,” he said. “We obviously want tourists who are visiting Costa Rica — or anywhere in the world — to understand some of the challenges that might exist in an environment like this, when there’s a strike.”But many Costa Ricans fear damage has already been done to the country’s international reputation as a tourist destination.“Imagine being in another country and hearing there’s a strike,” Calderón Brenes said. “Do you think they’re going to return to their country and recommend Costa Rica?” Facebook Comments The strike that has been gripping Costa Rica since Sept. 10 has begun taking its toll on one of the nation’s biggest industries: tourism.Several small business owners throughout Costa Rica are struggling through a September with less income than usual, even for an off-peak tourism month. They say the protests — which have blocked major highways — have caused an uptick in cancelations, threatening narrow profit margins.Javier Pacheco, vice president of Costa Rica’s National Chamber of Tourism (Canatur) told the daily La Nación travel agencies have suffered a 50 percent drop in reservations due to the strikes.Those disruptions are raising alarm from business owners who have seen revenue streams dwindle.“What are you going to tell the tourist: That they should come back in 15 days, when there isn’t a strike?” said Marlon Calderón Brenes, owner of Bijagua Rainforest Tours near Tenorio Volcano National Park in northern Costa Rica.Calderón Brenes says both of his scheduled tours last week canceled, affecting not only his company but the families that prepare food for visitors and own the boats he uses.Also in Bijagua, the Hotel Cacao Río Celeste remained empty this week after a 14-person, two-night reservation canceled.“If you don’t know if it will take three-and-a-half hours or twelve hours to drive here, you’re not going to come,” said its owner, Leda Arguello Cruz.center_img Costa Rican government seeks agreement with unions to end strike Rafaél Sanchez, manager of Bahía Aventuras in Uvita, on the southern Pacific coast, is thankful to have received just six cancelations since the strikes began. But he knows he has been fortunate.During the annual Whale and Dolphin festival, held earlier this month, Sanchez and other residents in Uvita noticed significantly smaller crowds than they expected. Rigoberto Vargas Navarro, president of the Association of Tour Operators at the Marina Ballena National Park, told The Tico Times he estimates around 1,500 fewer people came to this year’s festival compared to in 2017.“We think that’s a result of the strikes,” Vargas Navarro said. “That affects us a lot.”Costa Rica’s international airports have remained fully operational, but protesters have obstructed highways in Puntarenas, Guanacaste, and Limón. Earlier this week, Celebrity Cruises, whose ocean liner Infinity had a scheduled stop in Puntarenas, announced the ship would skip the call due to the strikes.Fifty kilometers south of Uvita, in Sierpe, one prominent business owner estimates that at minimum, 15 percent fewer people have visited the area this year. Jorge Uribe, who manages La Perla del Sur, says several people who have contacted him in recent weeks have chosen not to make reservations with the company after learning of local roadblocks.“It’s worrisome for the entire region,” he said.Thousands of citizens have been marching in San José and across Costa Rica this month against a proposed tax reform, which they say would have an unfair impact on the working class. Those demonstrations have generally remained peaceful, but they have routinely blocked major highways across the country. Others have impeded access to Costa Rican Petroleum Refinery (Recope) sites, causing occasional fuel shortages.According to the Costa Rican Institute of Tourism (ICT), the industry comprises 6.7 percent of the nation’s Gross Domestic Product. In a statement this week, María Amalia Revelo, the Minister of Tourism, acknowledged the impact strikes have had on local tourism.“I call on the protesters to exercise sanity and calm,” Amalia Revelo said in the statement. “The defense of the rights of some cannot cause the abuse of the rights of the rest of the population, affecting public services and the free movement of citizens and tourists who chose Costa Rica, out of dozens of options, as the destination to enjoy their holidays.”Unions and the government have started talks to end the strike, but the indefinite end has caused mounting concern for business owners.last_img read more

first_img by David Bauder, The Associated Press Posted Mar 21, 2018 7:08 am PDT Last Updated Mar 21, 2018 at 7:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – On its face, PBS has a huge challenge in promoting filmmaker Helen Whitney’s upcoming documentary on facing mortality. Most people want to avoid the subject of death, not see a two-hour film about it.Watching “Into the Night: Portraits of Life and Death” makes clear that it’s a lot more about life.The film, which premieres on March 26 at 9 p.m. EDT, features interviews with several thoughtful people for whom death is more than an abstraction. They include an historian whose attitude is changed by a youthful near-death experience, a man with terminal cancer who builds his own coffin, a former Islamic radical who questioned his beliefs about immortality while in solitary confinement, a pastor who struggles to regain faith after the deaths of two sons.There’s also a filmmaker who doesn’t want to confront the fact that her best friend is dying. That would be Whitney.“What is it that you most fear?” Whitney said. “I don’t think that people have these conversations. I don’t think they do until the last minutes. It’s not just about being brave at the end. It’s about how you live your life now.”Whitney’s parents died within three months of each other when she was 12, and she said that influenced many of the choices she made in a film career that has stretched beyond 40 years. She’s taken a special interest in spiritual matters, with projects on how the 2001 terrorist attacks affected people’s religious beliefs, the concept of forgiveness, Mormons and Pope John Paul II.With “Into the Night,” she wanted to have those conversations. After all, her film says, “there is nothing that we will ever do that feels so alone as dying.” The film is framed by actor Gabriel Byrne reciting Dylan Thomas’ famous poem, “Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night,” to show that when the time comes, some do and some don’t.Caitlin Doughty’s life changed in fourth grade, when she witnessed a young girl fall off an escalator to her death at a shopping centre. It stuck with her, and she eventually became a mortician and a leader in the death salon movement, where people gather to talk about mortality. “Death happens and it can be messy and it can be gross, but it can also be beautiful,” she says.Phyllis Tickle, the historian who was terminally ill when she talked with Whitney, nearly died in childbirth as a young woman. She had the sensation of moving toward a light and a voice asking if she were ready and she said, no, that she wanted to raise a family with her new husband. She survived. Tickle said she’s aware some people doubt such near-death experiences, considering them some neurological trickery; her husband was among them and didn’t want to talk about it. The film takes no side in the debate.What the experience did was leave her utterly unafraid of death, which she jokingly hoped would come while sitting on her deck with a bottle of Jack Daniel’s in front of her.“Once the fear of death goes,” she says, “you can’t be afraid of life. You’re a different person.”Tickle died a few months after speaking to Whitney, as did Jeffrey Piehler, a surgeon with prostate cancer. Together with a friend who was a carpenter, he built his own coffin, a task his family found morbid. Piehler found impending death liberating, enabling him to see “life in Technicolor,” let loose of destructive emotions and enjoy his family.As Whitney searched for people to talk to and conducted interviews for the film, she worked as usual with Ted Winterburn. Technically her film editor, Winterburn was a partner who helped shape the direction of Whitney’s projects. But at 80 years old, Winterburn was dying himself of prostate cancer. It was a subject that largely went unspoken between the two.“I didn’t make it easy for us to talk about because at some level I was not accepting the fact that he was going to die,” Whitney said. “The irony did not escape me.”Winterburn approached her, and said it was time to talk about it, if only because she would soon need to find a new editor. That led to some of the best discussions they ever had as friends, and an interview she conducted with him ends “Into the Night.”Proud as she is of the work, Whitney is well aware that it was a tough sell for distributors and viewers. PBS stepped up. Beth Hoppe, former programming chief for the public television service, said she recognized the film was important and that PBS had a role to occasionally be an outlet for projects that would otherwise have difficulty finding a home. She compared it to the 1983 film about childbirth, “The Miracle of Life,” of which DVD copies are still being offered for sale by PBS.“Once people start to contemplate this, it will have a long life,” said Hoppe, who now works at ABC News.To potential viewers, Whitney has a simple message: Don’t be scared.“I think it will give people an urgency to their lives not to push off the meaningful conversations, to forgive another person or make amends, to not put off something you have a passion to do,” she said. “Think, ‘what is my story, what is the importance of my life.’ Drill down on that, so that when the moment does come, you’re not filled with regrets.’” PBS film forces viewers to confront mortalitylast_img read more

on Nov 27The rally was Trump’s second of four this week part of a final campaign push with a little over one month to go until the midterms He heads to Minnesota on Thursday and Kansas on SaturdayEarlier Tuesday night the New York Times published a bombshell report detailing how Trump received hundreds of millions of dollars from his father’s real estate empire undercutting the image Trump has long crafted of himself as a self-made man Much of the money was funneled by Fred Trump to his children through the use of shell companies and other schemes that allowed him to avoid paying taxes on it the Times reportedTrump made no mention of the story during the rally But the rally’s start was slightly delayed until just after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement pushing back on the report and suggesting that the newspaper should apologize for its reporting"Fred Trump has been gone for nearly twenty years and it’s sad to witness this misleading attack against the Trump family by the failing New York Times Many decades ago the IRS reviewed and signed off on these transactions" Sanders said in the statement which did not cite any specifics of the reportThe New York State Department of Taxation and Finance said Tuesday evening that it is reviewing the allegations in the aticle and "vigorously pursuing all appropriate avenues of investigation"This article was written by Josh Dawsey and Felicia Sonmez reporters for The Washington PostAlzheimer’s researchers—not to mention patients and families—have faced a long string of disappointments in recent years as one promising treatment after another has failed to stop or slow the disease The latest blow came yesterday as Pfizer and its partners announced that they are suspending development of the intravenous form of bapineuzumab after it failed to improve mental or physical function in 1300 patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s disease Bapineuzumab is an antibody that targets β amyloid a protein fragment that accumulates in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients and is widely thought to be a key culprit in the disease process Despite encouraging evidence from animal studies that it clears amyloid from the brain when it came to clinical improvements in human patients the drug proved no better than placebo in two phase III clinical trials The first trial announced in July showed no benefit in 1100 people with a genetic variant that increases the risk of Alzheimer’s The second trial announced yesterday showed no benefit in people without this genetic variant "I wouldn’t describe it as a surprise but it’s a disappointment for sure" says John Hardy an Alzheimer’s researcher at University College London "These companies have spent an enormous amount of time on this particular antibody" There are a number of reasons why the trials may have failed Hardy says including the possibility that the antibody did not have high enough affinity for the particular forms of amyloid that do the most damage in the brain or that the patients in the trials had already experienced too much brain degeneration to benefit Clinical trials expected to begin early next year will put the latter possibility to the test in people with genetic mutations that cause an early-onset form of Alzheimer’s disease Participants in their 30s and 40s will receive antiamyloid drugs years before symptoms would be expected to appear Bapineuzumab could still be considered for those trials among other options Results from a phase III trial with another antibody that targets β amyloid—solanezumab developed by Eli Lilly—should be announced later this year "Undoubtedly this is worrying for the Lilly antibody" Hardy says of the bapineuzumab results But he says he hasn’t given up hope that the Lilly trial will produce better results Solanezumab has different molecular characteristics than bapineuzumab and it’s conceivable it does a better job clearing harmful forms of amyloid from the brain Hardy says Despite this latest setback Samuel Gandy an Alzheimer’s researcher at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York City says he’s more optimistic than ever that scientists will eventually figure out how and when to lower β amyloid in order to stave off dementia "I think that controlling one’s amyloid β is likely to be a lifelong endeavor just like controlling one’s cholesterol" Gandy saysReaching out New NSFC chief Yang Wei meeting with students Lu Shaoqing Courtesy of Yang Wei In 1984 as a graduate student at Brown University Yang Wei took a course in materials science taught by a new assistant professor Even though the professor Subra Suresh was 2 years younger than the student he has since become a kind of a role model for Yang who last month took the helm of the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) Yang points to Suresh who is about to step down as director of the US National Science Foundation (NSF) as an example of an engineer who has successfully led a science funding agency As China’s equivalent to NSF NSFC disbursed $28 billion last year through peer-reviewed grants and programs to support basic research young talents and facilities Yang received his PhD at age 31 from Brown’s School of Engineering Like that of many of his generation Yang’s education was delayed by China’s Cultural Revolution In the tumultuous late 1960s and early 1970s Mao Zedong sent urban youth to the countryside to learn from farmers Yang was 14 when he went to Yan’an Mao’s revolutionary base during the anti-Japanese war "We spent our teenage years doing hard work and learning about real life" Yang says He taught himself high school material while working on a farm near Yan’an studied in an engineering college in Xi’an as a worker-farmer-soldier trainee and was among the first to pursue a graduate degree in post-Mao China "We had determination we had dreams and we knew how to achieve our dreams step by step" Yang says In his first interview with the press since becoming NSFC president on 22 February Yang talked to Science about plans to improve NSFC’s grant management strengthen academic integrity and stamp out misconduct Q: During the 9 years under your predecessor biologist Chen Yiyu NSFC’s budget increased nearly sevenfold How do you plan to convince the central government to continue investing at such levels YW: We expect double-digit budget growth for the next 5 years Although increases will be less dramatic than in the past 9 years we still anticipate growth rates higher than China’s GDP [gross domestic product] growth rate [forecast to be 75% in 2013] The current budget is only about 40% of that of the US National Science Foundation Consider that we do not have the equivalent of the US NIH [National Institutes of Health] in China; the NSFC’s division of life sciences takes up about one-third of our total budget and this division alone has to compete with the NIH which has a budget of $20 billion By this comparison NSFC’s budget is much less than the total funding for basic sciences in the US China’s 2012 GDP was about half of the United States’; China’s total societal expenditure on R&D at about $165 billion last year is also about half of the US’s Both these ratios are higher than NSFC’s budget as compared with US funding for basic sciences China has to transition from an economic powerhouse to a technological powerhouse and then to a scientific and cultural powerhouse To achieve this goal we will need many scientists and we need to convince the government that it should provide more funding to the NSFC Q: What measures are NSFC putting into place to promote research integrity and reduce misconduct in grant application and review of proposals YW: NSFC authorizes an independent committee to supervise research integrity The committee received about 200 misconduct allegations each year in the last 3 years Considering that over the same period there was a 16% increase of research proposals submitted the number of allegations vis-à-vis proposals was slightly reduced Last year the committee found 19 out of about 200 allegations to be misconduct cases about 10% of all allegations The committee has identified five categories of misconduct The first is inflation of credentials For example an investigator expecting his doctorate in June uses the designation PhD on a grant proposal submitted in March Also sometimes signatures of collaborators are forged to inflate the scope of the project This is the largest category We have developed training material to warn people of this kind of misconduct We also hold institutions responsible because they have the obligations to educate new researchers on good conduct when writing proposals The second category is plagiarism Some copy from their own past proposals and some copy others’ proposals We are using software to crosscheck newly submitted proposals against our archive of 5 to 10 years of old proposals The third category is program managers choosing reviewers in favor of applicants with whom they have good relations Some reviewers are known to be hard; some are relatively soft Program managers may choose soft reviewers for their friends We are thinking about how to address this issue For instance we are establishing a database of reviewers with their average review scores A program manager may select seven to 10 reviewers for one particular proposal The system will calculate the average score from the reviewers If the score is very high then perhaps it indicates that a group of very soft reviewers were chosen If the average score is very low then perhaps a group of very hard reviewers are chosen We can establish some margins and if the reviewer score is outside the margins we will pay more attention to those proposals The fourth category is leakage of review information My colleagues have told me about frequent visits to our database which contains all proposal-related information We are thinking about an alert mechanism which will flag unusually frequent database visits and keep track of logons and accesses to the information system The last category is fabricated progress reports for NSFC grants Q: In 2011 when NSFC celebrated its 25th anniversary an international review panel identified areas of its operations that could be improved How are these issues being addressed YW: All my predecessors worked hard to make the NSFC accountable and academically centered We are also aware that there is room for improvement The first one is our small staff which handles an increasing number of grant applications NSFC currently has about 200 permanent staff members—10% of the NSF’s in terms of head count We can say the NSFC is very efficient Our own operating budget at 200 million CNY is merely 1% of our total funding budget and staff salaries only take up 15% of our operating budget On the other hand the insufficient staff pool for fund management may undermine the possible amplifier effect of the smart power of the NSFC by that I mean even though we cost very little in comparison to the amount we manage the added value by us may be insufficient One remedy is to recruit part-time grant managers to enrich the academic fabric of the NSFC Currently we employ about 200 provisional program managers to handle grant applications We have also implemented a new protocol to reduce the number of applications If one is not successful in two consecutive years one needs to stop for 1 year before one can apply again This blocking year may help reduce the total number of submitted proposals and give applicants time to think about how to improve their research or to search for new directions In 2012 we had 178000 submitted proposals and about 38000 proposals were approved The approval rate is about 20% This is a good ratio because we don’t want the approval rate to be too high which would mean low selectivity Or too low which would seem like gambling NSFC has always funded young researchers at the early stage of their careers We have now extended the eligibility for early-career grants to postdocs Starting in 2012 NSFC began a new category of selecting up to 400 excellent young investigators annually and provide each with a 3-year 1 million CNY total grant We are also considering the introduction of indirect costs in the budget table Also since last year we started allowing the final budget to be made by the institutions that host the investigators not by the central government International peer review is a line worth pursuing We may also try participation by international experts in formulating NSFC grant guidelines We have also increased the amount of support allocated to international collaboration We want to make collaborations concrete rather than ceremonial mass protest against the move to sack the teachers and recruit 25," he told the Deseret News Till 1 pm.
