Honduran Police Rescues Kidnapped Businessman’s Son

first_imgBy Dialogo June 09, 2009 Tegucigalpa, June 7 (EFE). – Honduran police rescued without harm the namesake son of the oil businessman Henry Arévalo, who had been kidnapped almost a month ago, and arrested several of his captors, an official source reported today. A police contingent rescued Henry Arévalo, aged 17, on Saturday from a house in the village of Piedra Parada, in a mountainous region in the department of La Paz (center), according to Héctor Mejía, the National Police’s press spokesperson. In the operation six people were arrested, including members of the kidnappers’ gang and the family who owned the house in which the young man was held captive; however, two other members of the gang got away, he added. Police found two police uniforms and badges in the house, among other items; hence they investigate the possible involvement of police members in the abduction. Henry Arévalo’s son was kidnapped on May 10 from a road while returning to Tegucigalpa from the family house situated in Zambrano, about 40 kilometers north of the capital, in a car with his two older sisters. The boy is the son of a businessman, Henry Arévalo, co-owner of a major fuel distribution chain, and former Vice President of Carlos Flores’ administration (1998-2002), Gladys Knight. So far this year about thirty people have been abducted in Honduras, while in 2008 a total of 80 were kidnapped, according to official sources. Among the largest kidnappings in recent weeks are journalist Andrés Torres, of Tegucigalpa’s HRN radio, who was held captive from May 15 to June 2. Another journalist, Bernardo Rivera, has been held captive since March 14.last_img read more

FARC Postpones Hostage Release in Colombia

first_img The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) has announced that it will indefinitely postpone the release of six police and Military personnel, to which it had committed in December 2011. “The area that we had chosen for the release of the prisoners of war Luis Alfonso Beltrán, César Augusto Laso, Carlos José Duarte, Jorge Trujillo, Jorge Humberto Romero, and José Libardo Forero (…) has been unjustifiably militarized by the Colombian government, forcing us to postpone its implementation,” said the statement published by the guerrilla group on its website on February 1. The communication, signed by the communist FARC’s secretariat, was addressed to prominent figures such as Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberta Menchú and writers Elena Poniatowska and Isabel Allende, as well as former Colombian senator Piedad Córdoba, to whom the group had promised the releases. “As soon as the insanity that has taken over Nariño Palace (the Colombian president’s office) recedes, we will make another attempt so that you will be able to welcome those who will be released,” the statement added. The FARC stated that “patriotic Military personnel had alerted us to the intention of (President Juan Manuel) Santos’s administration to obtain a Military rescue at any cost, without considering that this might lead to a mournful result, as on November 26,” in reference to the deaths of four hostages held by that guerrilla group, murdered by their captors during combat with government forces. After becoming acquainted with the terrorist organization’s statement, Defense Minister Juan Carlos Pinzón declared on February 1, that the FARC has once again lied to the country. “These people are once again demonstrating the lies that they tell and how at base, they mock the Colombian people on an ongoing basis.” The minister emphasized that in the process of rapprochement with the International Committee of the Red Cross, the place of the supposed releases was never mentioned, and he reiterated the administration’s willingness to facilitate the release of those kidnapped. “The administration insists that if they tell us the coordinates today, at what location they can be picked up, and what has to be done to get them today, that can be done.” Finally, the defense minister expressed solidarity with the families of those kidnapped – one member of the Military and five police officers who have been in captivity for over 12 years – and rejected the FARC’s intention to convert the release of kidnapping victims into a media show. “We very much regret that the families continue to be subjected to a situation like this … not only on their account, but on that of the kidnapped individuals,” he stated.

Libya to face Ghana in Chan final

first_img30 January 2014 Goals were hard to come by as both semi-finals of the 2014 African Nations Championships (Chan) were decided from the penalty spot at South Africa’s Free State Stadium on Wednesday evening. Libya were first to book their place in the title-decider after edging Zimbabwe 5-4 following a goalless draw between the teams after extra time. In the late game, Ghana and Nigeria played to another goalless draw before the Black Stars triumphed 4-1 from the penalty spot. It will be the second time in the three Chan tournaments that Ghana will contest the final. They previously finished as runners-up in 2009 after going down 2-0 to the Democratic Republic of Congo.Poor finishing Heavy rain at the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein affected a match that Zimbabwe should have won, but poor finishing let the Warriors down. Libyan goalkeeper Mohamed Abdaula fumbled a shot by Danny Phiri within the first five minutes of the contest and then was forced to steer a long distance effort from Ali Sadiki over the bar. The Warriors’ Simba Sithole headed wide and was again off target early in the second half, while Sadiki continued to test Abdoula with shots from range as Zimbabwe turned up the heat on the Mediterranean Knights. Gilt-edged opportunity Kudakwashe Mahachi then blew a gilt-edged opportunity to put the Zimbabweans ahead when he blasted the ball over the crossbar. In the additional 30 minutes added on after the regulation 90 had ended scoreless, Libya almost stole victory when substitute Elmutasem Abushnaf was wide of the goal after a mix-up between Phiri and goalkeeper George Chigova. Zimbabwe pushed hard for the win, but the Libyan defence held firm and the contest was decided from the penalty spot. One-man advantage Ghana had to deal with Kwabina Adusei being sent off midway through the second half of their semi-final against Nigeria, but the Super Eagles could not make their one-man advantage count. The Blacks Stars adopted a counter-attacking strategy, which they combined with some robust defence, which meant the Nigerians did most of the attacking. Abubakar Ibrahim came oh so close to putting them ahead in the 27th minute with a long distance strike. It beat goalkeeper Stephen Adams, but struck the crossbar and the scores remained level. Spurred on by the narrow miss, the Super Eagles pushed hard for an opener, but the teams went into the break goalless. Red card Ghana’s tough tackling came back to haunt them when Adusei was shown a red card in the 63rd minute following a high challenge on Abubakar. Once more Nigeria heaped pressure on Ghana, but still the Ghanaians held firm and the match moved into extra time. When Barnabas Imenger went down in the box in the 96th minute, the Super Eagles thought they had won a penalty, but their appeals were turned down. Imenger then shot over the crossbar after being set up by Ejike Uzoenyi.Late winner missed Imenger could have fired a late winner for Nigeria, but he was wide of the target with the goal mouth gaping wide open in front of him. The Nigerians were made to pay for their misses when the game went to the penalty spot, where the Super Eagles’ poor finishing continued as Solomon Kwambe and Ugonna Uzochukwu missed their kicks. Final The Chan final takes place at the Cape Town Stadium on Saturday, kicking off at 20:00. It will be preceded by the third place playoff between Zimbabwe and Nigeria.last_img read more

What Does That Much-Hyped, Over-Used, Muddled Word “Cloud” Really Mean?

first_imgI’ve been involved with computers my whole life, but over the years, I’ve taken multiple sabbaticals from the devices. Upon my return about a year and a half ago, there was a new term being thrown around – “cloud”.I wasn’t sure what was going on, but everyone was very excited about this “cloud” business. The only thing was, I kept trying to define it by contextual clues and two months later, I had determined that “cloud” was synonymous with “Internet” and “Web.” As time has gone on, however, the term has become more and more muddled, so I’ve decided again to delve into the exact definition of our favorite word – “cloud”.It wasn’t until I had a long chat at last year’s SXSW with then-Rackspace senior manager of corporate communications Michelle Greer that I understood that “cloud” isn’t simply a replacement for “Internet” or “Web”. It has to do with immediate scalability, virtualization and distributed computing, among other things. Nonetheless, the term seems as muddled as ever.As Redmond Magazine’s Don Jones pleads argues in an article (wonderfully titled “Please Stop Saying ‘Cloud’”) this morning, the term has long ago lost its way.I blame the IT marketing sub-industry for this. Let’s start by agreeing to never use the term “cloud” again. They co-opted that term from the telecommunications industry anyway […] What folks routinely refer to as the “cloud” in the IT industry is actually something very different. It’s a huge variety of services and approaches, all of which offer to let you outsource some portion of your IT capabilities – things you might normally handle yourself, in your own datacenter. This is hardly a new concept: I’ve had a “cloud e-mail” address (it ends in yahoo.com) for close to a decade, now. I’ve been using “cloud computing” (a Web hosting service) for just as long.We took a moment to ask around on Twitter for folks to define “cloud” in 140 characters or less and this is what we got. Some, of course, are tongue in cheek, but that still reflect the state of “cloud” in the public mind. Related Posts Then again, this is nothing new, right?
