New scholarship fund to send Costa Rican students to the United States

first_imgAt the end of July, students from Costa Rica’s public Vocational High Schools and public schools with International Baccalaureate programs will be able to apply for a scholarship to study in the United States, thanks to the new Ana Sittenfeld Specialized Technical Scholarship Program.The fund, named for a Costa Rican microbiology professor and researcher who co-founded the Costa Rica USA Foundation for Cooperation (CRUSA) in 1996, will offer five scholarships this year. During each of the following four years, seven scholarships per year will be offered, all in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).The scholarships are offered thanks to a partnership among the CRUSA Foundation, the Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency (CINDE), the U.S. Embassy in San José, and Education USA.“It’s important that as a country, we generate joint initiatives to develop human capital in STEM areas that are relevant to the productive sector’s needs,” said David Gutiérrez, president of the CRUSA Foundation, at the launch of the new fund on July 11.

Each scholarship represents a cost of approximately $41,430, including tuition, books and materials, health insurance and living expenses.“The alliance that CRUSA, CINDE and the Embassy have created will benefit those who wish to pursue technical programs in the United States, which will help address workforce shortages in Costa Rica,” said U.S. Ambassador S. Fitzgerald Haney, who explained that the Embassy’s Commercial Division will select at least 20 community colleges with STEM-related accredited programs in specialties that CINDE recommends according to the Costa Rican private sector’s needs.According to the most recent State of Science, Technology and Innovation report, Costa Rica “needs to adapt its vocational offerings to the demands of the productive and export sectors, which implies reorienting the priorities of educational policies and programs in secondary technical education, and the training of middle- and top-level technicians.”The multinational businesses attracted to Costa Rica by CINDE generate approximately 7,000 new jobs per year. For the 2018-2022 period, these businesses will require staff for approximately 35,000 new jobs. To meet that demand, the country must train specialized bilingual technicians in areas such as quality control, design and manufacture, software design, financial analysis, mechanics and mechatronics, language and technology management, ERPs and systems, among others.According to CINDE President Luis Gamboa, “joint efforts such as this are very valuable to Costa Rica. Without any doubt, strengthening our human resources is one of the biggest priorities to boost our country’s competitiveness in key industries. At the same time, this translates to significant opportunities for personal and professional growth for Costa Ricans.”Beneficiaries will study at a vocational education center or community college in the United States and can combine their training with internships at U.S. businesses with operations in Costa Rica.They will also receive technical and financial support from Education USA during their preparation for study in the United States, with financing from the Opportunity Funds of the U.S. State Department.CINDE will participate by monitoring priority areas and coordinating the support of high-tech companies so that scholarship recipients can work as interns in business where they will build their professional abilities and soft skills. (Courtesy of CRUSA)Ana SittenfeldThe fund is named for Dr. Ana Sittenfeld Appel, a founder of CRUSA in 1996 and the first president of its Administrative Board. She is a retired professor of microbiology at the University of Costa Rica (UCR); her research includes the characterization of microbial communities living in extreme environments, and issues related to the intersection of biotechnology and biodiversity.“Dr. Sittenfeld’s contributions to Costa Rican education and research have been extraordinary, and she has been a tireless champion of efforts to extend academic opportunities to young Costa Ricans,” Michelle Coffey, Executive Delegate of the CRUSA Foundation, told The Tico Times. “We are proud to name this new initiative after her.”How to applyAn open application process is being carried out: any students fluent in English who study at Vocational High Schools (Colegios Técnicos Profesionales) or public high schools that participate in the International Baccalaureate Program may apply.From July 24–August 11, interested candidates can visit www.crusa.cr or the CRUSA Facebook page to access and fill out the application form and submit required documentation.The CRUSA Foundation will receive the applications, verify compliance with eligibility requirements and carry out a preselection process of candidates. These will then be reviewed by the Selection Committee, made up of representatives of CINDE, the U.S. Embassy, Education USA and CRUSA. The Committee will analyze the applications and aspects such as candidates’ leadership and academic performance.Recommended: New international campaign raises funds to protect Costa Rica’s ocean life Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Hawaii kicks off 2012 setting records

first_imgHawaii tourism figures were off to a bumper start with visitor statistics indicating spending for the month of January reached US$1.345 billion, up 13.9 percent from the previous year.Hawaii Tourism Authority President and CEO Mike McCartney said it was the highest January on record for expenditures which exceeded the December 2011 high of $1.298 billion, CBS news reported.The strong growth was attributed to a higher daily spending of USD192 per person and a 7.7 growth in total visitor arrivals to 643,616.According to recent statistic on a typical day in January there were 223,452 visitors, the last time the figure was higher was in July 2005.”A strong holiday season, combined with pent up demand for travel to the Hawaiian Islands, increases in airlift and a large delegation of convention attendees were all contributing factors to the increases seen in January,” Mr McCartney said.The MICE industry had increased 25 percent from the previous year, with the American Farm Bureau Federation convention alone welcoming almost 6,000 attendees to Hawaii.Canada continues to represent a large market for Hawaii with January’s expenditure increasing 22.4 percent to US$165.2million.Total expenditure by visitors from the United States increased despite a reduction in daily spending.Mr McCartney said the results for January were a good guide that 2012 will be a positive year.

HUD Issues Rule to Standardize Discriminatory Housing Cases

first_imgHUD Issues Rule to Standardize Discriminatory Housing Cases Share “”HUD””:http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD announced Friday the issuing of a “”final rule””:http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/documents/huddoc?id=discriminatoryeffectrule.pdf to formalize a national standard for determining whether a practice violates the Fair Housing law based on an “”unjustified”” discriminatory effect.[IMAGE]According to the agency, the rule establishes a three-part test that shifts burden of proof in a discriminatory housing case back and forth between the plaintiff and defendant. It is designed to address recent debates over whether or not a housing practice can be considered discriminatory if it seems neutral on the surface.””As we’ve learned over the years, housing discrimination comes in many forms. Discrimination doesn’t have to be intentional in order to have a damaging effect,”” said HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan. “”HUD, which has the responsibility and authority to interpret and enforce the Fair Housing Act, has long interpreted the Act to prohibit housing practices with an unjustified discriminatory effect, if those acts actually or predictably result in a [COLUMN_BREAK]disparate impact on a group of persons, or create, increase, reinforce or perpetuate segregated housing patterns.””The established test goes through three steps: First, the plaintiff has the burden of proving its case that a practice “”results in, or would predictably result in,”” a discriminatory effect based on a protected characteristic–for example, race, sex, or religion.If the case is proven, the burden shifts to the defendant to prove that the practice is necessary to achieve another legitimate, substantial, non-discriminatory interest. If that burden is satisfied, the plaintiff can then try to prove that the defendant’s interest can be achieved through another practice that has a less discriminatory effect.The final rule addresses a number of issues brought up from lenders about the potential chilling effect it may have on business. “”HUD does nto believe that the rule will have a chilling effect on lending in lower income communities or that it will encourage lawsuits challenging credit scores, other credit assessment standards, or the requirements of the Dodd-Frank Act … [T]he rule does not change the substantive law; eleven federal courts of appeals have recognized discriminatory effects liability under the Act and over the years courts have evaluated both meritorious and non-meritorious discriminatory effects claims challenging lending practices,”” the rule says.Rather, HUD asserts “”the rule will simply compliance with the Fair Housing Act’s discriminatory effects standard and decrease litigation associated with such claims by clearly allocating the burdens of proof and how such burdens are to be met.”” Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Compliance Fair Housing Act HUD Investors Lenders & Servicers Processing Service Providers 2013-02-10 Tory Barringercenter_img in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing February 10, 2013 400 Views last_img read more

InterContinental Hotels Group has opened the doors

first_imgInterContinental Hotels Group has opened the doors to the highly anticipated Kimpton De Witt. The unveiling of the hotel in the heart of Amsterdam marks the first Kimpton in Europe and outside of the Americas.The hotel has been fully transformed with Kimpton’s bold and playful design. Inspired by Dutch heritage with Kimpton’s signature wit, its spirited edge is immediately evident from the striking ‘living wall’ of vibrant florals and botanicals trailing the entrance. It marries the old and the new – a late 20th-century building with architecture from the Dutch Golden Age – interlocking modern luxury and historical elegance.The hotel’s 274 rooms, which include nine signature suites in the original Golden Age buildings, are inspired by Dutch design, from a modern take on classic Dutch art in the bedrooms to the blue Delft-inspired tiles paving the bathroom floors. Within the property stands a three-storey ‘Little House,’ which dates back to the 1600s and was once the childhood home of the Dutch playwright, P.C. Hooft. Little House can be rented for groups looking for the luxury of a private abode; it offers two king-sized rooms and a first floor living room. Kimpton De Witt’s signature suite, Penthouse De Witt, is split over two storeys and its 30-square-metre roof terrace offers spectacular views of the city and the iconic canal house rooftops.Kimpton’s thoughtful touches can be experienced throughout the hotel. Guests have access to a modern fitness centre, Gaiam yoga mats in every room and a complimentary all-day tea station in the lobby. True to Kimpton form, extra special perks take on a local slant. Guests can pedal away and explore the city on complimentary VanMoof bikes, luxurious in-room toiletries are supplied by Amsterdam-based natural skin care brand, Marie-Stella-Maris, and a hosted social hour every evening gives guests the chance to socialise and enjoy the hotel.Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is famous for its award-winning restaurants and bars, and Kimpton De Witt is no exception. Next to the hotel, Wyers Bar & Restaurant, run by Executive Chef Sam DeMarco, aka SammyD, offers American staples with Dutch influences, while House Bar provides guests and locals with a luxurious resting post where bartenders craft cocktails using unexpected ingredients as well as serve an extensive menu of local gins and genevers. Local passers-by can grab a hot cup of strong coffee, made with coffee beans roasted locally especially for the café and fresh sugar-dusted beignets, at Miss Louisa Coffee & Beignets. The walk-up window is open for early morning, afternoon and evening snacks.The hotel, which is in the heart of Amsterdam’s vibrant city centre and near the city’s Centraal Station, marks a milestone for IHG as it brings the Kimpton brand to Europe for the first time.“Europe was the original inspiration behind Bill Kimpton founding the brand and now we’re bringing the brand home again. Opening in Amsterdam gives us the perfect opportunity to indulge in the playful, creative and innovative approach to luxury that the city inspires in Kimpton’s unique and special way,” comments Angela Brav, IHG CEO, Europe. “Amsterdam as a city is effortless in design, highly diverse and a hotbed of creativity, making it the perfect match for our first Kimpton hotel in Europe. We’ll be bringing Kimpton to Paris next and have big plans for other cities across the continent.”Jan Smits, CEO, IHG Asia Middle East and Africa commented: “This is an exciting time for Kimpton and we look at opportunities to bring the brand to new markets across our region. The lifestyle sector, in our part of the world, is rapidly growing as travellers are constantly looking for new experiences and bespoke luxury. This brand promise combined with the reassurance of the IHG system sets us up for strong growth potential.”Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants was acquired by IHG in 2015. IHG announced the further expansion of the brand across Europe with its second Kimpton hotel set to open in Paris in 2020. There are currently over 60 Kimpton hotels and more than 70 Kimpton restaurants, bars and lounges in 33 cities across Europe and the Americas. This is IHG’s 20th hotel in The Netherlands and is an exciting addition to the 675 IHG hotels across Europe.last_img read more

Larnaca man arrested for extortion

first_imgPOLICE have detained a 29-year-old Larnaca man on suspicion of extortion, threat of violence, and a series of other possible offences allegedly committed earlier this week.On Wednesday, police said, a 41-year-old businessman from Larnaca reported that in the early hours of the day he had been threatened by four men into paying them large sums of money.The businessman said it was around 2am and he was at a nightclub with a female former employee who at some point decided to climb on the bar to dance.One of the four men, who had been sitting at an adjacent table, got up and told off the woman. The two had words and the suspect asked the businessman to pay his bill and leave the establishment.The complainant opened his wallet to pay and at that moment the suspect saw that he was carrying a lot of money.He then asked the businessman to follow him outside for a talk. The two were accompanied by the other three men who had been sitting with the suspect.According to the businessman, the suspect said he knew where he lived and threatened him that he had a video of him and the woman, demanding money to keep them from telling his wife.The businessman said he was scared by the suspect’s threatening behaviour and his associates, and decided to give them €500 to keep silent.However, the suspect grabbed the man’s wallet and took all the money, some €4,000, before returning it.The man’s ordeal apparently did not end there.The four men continued to threaten the businessman seeking more money, claiming they had a gun.The group ended up in a hotel with the businessman telling the suspect that he would go to the bank in the morning to get them the cash.The suspect told the man that they were going to stay with him until the morning and then accompany him to the bank.At around 8.30am, the businessman drove the suspect and the others to a co-op bank where he withdrew €2,750 and handed it over,Before dropping them off at the location of their car, near the Larnaca courthouse, the suspect demanded an additional €10,000 by lunchtime of the same day.Following the complaint, police examined footage from the bank’s security cameras and identified the suspect whom CID officers knew well.Police said while the businessman was giving them a statement he had received messages and calls from a number that appears to belong to the suspect.They were also told that someone matching the suspect’s description had gone to the area where the businessman lived and asked around to find out his house.You May LikeLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

Cleveland | Published: July 22 2017 4:28 pm Kyrie Irving is under contract for two more seasons with Cleveland Cavaliers (Source: File) Top News Kyrie Irving wants the stage for himself Cleveland’s Australian-born All-Star point guard has asked the Cavaliers to trade him two people familiar with the situation told the Associated Press on Friday Irving made the request last week to owner Dan Gilbert said the people who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team is not commenting on the star’s demands Irving’s appeal was first reported by ESPN A four-time All-Star Irving has spent six seasons with the Cavs who selected him with the No 1 overall pick in 2011 The 25-year-old has overcome injury issues and blossomed into one of the league’s elite point guards and biggest stars And now that he’s finally established himself playing alongside LeBron James Irving wants out He’s under contract for two more seasons with Cleveland (he has a player option in 2020) but the Cavs could be inclined to move Irving now and begin another rebuild around James who can opt out of his contract next summer and leave Ohio for the second time The bombshell about Irving adds to what has been a tumultuous offseason for the Cavs following their loss in five games to Golden State in the NBA Finals General manager David Griffin parted ways with the club after failing to work out a new contract with Gilbert and while other teams have been active in signing free agents the Cavs have been limited in their ability to revamp their roster because of salary-cap issues Also the Cavs courted former NBA star Chauncey Billups but couldn’t get him to join their front office Irving’s request to be dealt perhaps sheds some light on the Cavs’ recent pursuit of former league MVP Derrick Rose The team has talked to Rose about a one-year contract in recent days a source familiar with the negotiations told the AP on Thursday Rose was thought to be a potential backup but now it appears he could be needed to start if the Cavs and Irving are indeed breaking up There is certain to be major interest in Irving who averaged a career-high 252 points and 58 assists in 72 games last season Irving averaged 259 points in his third straight Finals but he and James couldn’t do enough to match the Warriors who took back their crown after adding Kevin Durant last summer A potential trade partner for the Cavs could be the New York Knicks who have been trying to unload Carmelo Anthony a close friend of James Irving was raised in New Jersey and would welcome a chance to go back to his home area However the Knicks may not have enough assets to intrigue the Cavs and there is a sizeable imbalance in contracts so the Cavs would have to include other players in any potential deal It’s strange that Irving would choose now to ask for a trade After all he has finally developed into a bona fide superstar following three tough seasons following James’ departure to Miami in 2010 Irving had no help during those years and the Cavs were in a state of disarray before James came back in 2014 In his second year alongside James Irving made the biggest shot in franchise history draining a 3-pointer in the closing moments of Game 7 to give the Cavs their first title and the first for any Cleveland pro team since 1964 By all accounts Irving and James got along but there were times when they didn’t quite see eye to eye James was demanding of his younger teammates but he was always adamant that Irving would grow into a superior player Following Cleveland’s Game 5 loss in the Finals Irving credited James for leading the way “He’s freaking awesome” Irving said “As a student of the game it would be a disservice to myself if I didn’t try to learn as much as possible while I’m playing with this guy Every single day demanding more out of himself demanding more out of us the true testament of a consummate professional And understanding how things work not only just in the game but off the court things that matter just taking care of your body understanding the magnitude of what the goal is at hand and what steps it takes in order to achieve that goal” Moments earlier

of Thomas Bach’s ‘Agenda 2020’ reforms (Source: AP) Top News As soon as he got the job the new ethics chair of the International Olympic Committee received an earful as well Former UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon was elected to his new position Thursday handed the task of restoring credibility to an organization that according to its own members is getting ‘hammered’ by an onslaught of unsavory scandals In his acceptance speech Ban called his new task ‘a serious responsibility’ After he was done and the floor was opened for questions IOC members took turns accentuating the challenge he faces “Quite frankly we’re getting hammered every day … to the point where there’s a perception out there not just from the media but from average people who feel almost betrayed by what they see as continual acts of corruption by high people in international sports” said Richard Peterkin the IOC member from Saint Lucia This week’s IOC session was highlighted by the dual award of the 2024 and 2028 Olympics to Paris and Los Angeles Sharing those headlines have been almost-daily developments about Brazilian IOC member Carlos Nuzman who is under investigation for his alleged role in a $2 million vote-buying scheme to bring the 2016 Olympics to Rio de Janeiro Earlier this week IOC president Thomas Bach said the committee was awaiting word from Brazilian authorities before determining next steps There are IOC members however who think the committee should act more decisively “The trouble is presuming innocence is fine but how long does it take” New Zealand IOC member Barry Maister said in an interview with The Associated Press shortly after he too expressed his frustration during the Q&A with Ban “It takes an age and in that time we just get hammered It makes it look like we’re pushing the issue under the carpet” Nuzman isn’t the only IOC member in trouble Last month Patrick Hickey resigned his spot on the IOC executive board a year after being arrested in Brazil in a ticket-scalping investigation Absent from this week’s meetings is IOC member Frankie Fredericks who was previously removed from the committee’s inspection team for Paris and Los Angeles in the wake of allegations he was caught up in the vote scandal involving Nuzman The former head of track and field’s governing body Lamine Diack is also involved in the vote-buying scandal; he resigned his IOC position in 2015 Another IOC member Sheikh Ahmad Al Fahad Al Sabah of Kuwait did not show this week He has been implicated in a FIFA bribery case in the United States and resigned from FIFA in April but has not left his IOC post The IOC is seeking improvements in its ethics operation as part of Bach’s “Agenda 2020” reforms Among the measures: establishing a new chief ethics and compliance officer’s position and creating a new ethics hotline that anyone can use to report violations both on and off the field of play “I think we’ve made it clear that credibility for us is extremely important” Bach said “Because credibility in sports doesn’t only apply to sports competition but to sports organizations as well This is what we addressed expressly with Olympic Agenda 2020” But the changes take time and meanwhile the critical headlines keep coming There comes a certain point when you’re taking all this (crap) and you have to come out of the bunker and say “What are we not doing that’s affecting the credibility of the IOC” Canadian member Dick Pound said Maister said the combination of IOC members’ problems along with the steady stream of medals being reallocated in an ongoing doping crisis undermine fans’ confidence in sports “Where are we on a crisis scale We’re not off the scale I wouldn’t put a figure on it” Maister said “But these are issues that need to be
