Ruling party’s Johnny Araya restarts presidential campaign with Catholic leaders Costa Rica ruling party candidate Johnny Araya drops out of presidential race Facebook Comments Didn’t follow the election campaign this week? Don’t worry, we did.1. Luis Guillermo Solís hits the road for GuanacasteCitizen Action Party (PAC) presidential candidate Luis Guillermo Solís traveled to the northwestern province of Guanacaste to pound the pavement and change a few minds in the deep green National Liberation Party (PLN) stronghold.The PAC candidate has a ways to go. Solís won a scant 14.8 percent of the vote in Guanacaste to Araya’s whopping 40.7 percent on Feb. 2, according to final results published by the Supreme Elections Tribunal.The University of Costa Rica historian has been hoping that his message of empowering local businesses would revererbate in a region with high poverty and inequality rates. Solís, who has been more focused on small Costa Rican businesses than courting large foreign investment, noted “paradoxes” in the ruling party’s development agenda for the region famous for its beaches and sabaneros:“Despite the fact that this is the province that has received the most foreign investment per capita in Costa Rica, it’s the poorest province and sends away the most people. The large projects that dominate here, in the tourism sector, for example, are not satisfying the needs of an important number of small businesses in a region that is privileged for its history and natural beauty.”center_img Here’s a bonus picture of Solís wearing a miner’s helmet during a visit to Abangares this week. Citizen Action Party presidential candidate Luis Guillermo Solís poses for a photo with supporters in Abangares, Guanacaste. Courtesy Luis Guillermo Solís presidential campaign2. Johnny Araya says he’d meet with Daniel OrtegaDuring a meeting with Foreign Minister Enrique Castillo on Tuesday, Johnny Araya raised some eyebrows when he offered to meet with Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega to try and resolve the bevy of border disputes between the two neighbors.Even the slightest mention of rapprochement with the Sandinista leader would be a significant change in the icy posture of President Laura Chinchilla’s administration toward Nicaragua. Her administration has been wrangling with the northern neighbor over several perceived border provocations.Costa Rica and Nicaragua have two cases with the International Court of Justice over territorial disputes, the most recent, filed on Tuesday morning, asked the world court to settle a maritime border dispute dating back to 2002 when Nicaragua published maps offering oil concessions in waters claimed by Costa Rica.Solís has said he would not meet bilaterally with Ortega until the disputes are settled.3. Araya gets Christian conservatives’ blessingEspousing conservative social values has been a central strategy for Araya to differentiate himself from his opposition rival. On Thursday, the former San José mayor, who has been divorced four times, got the blessing of the National Evangelical Alliance after giving a speech decrying abortion rights, gay marriage and in vitro fertilization during a meeting with the faith-based group, reported the daily La Nación.Araya also presented a document signed by the 18 incoming PLN lawmakers promising not to support legislation in favor of gay marriage or abortion rights, Repretel reported.Recommended: Abortion and politics on the campaign trailSolís, who previously met with the evangelical organization, has run afoul of conservative Christians for his support of in vitro fertilization and abortion rights in the case of rape.Both candidates reject gay marriage but support some common law marriage benefits for same-sex couples, including inheritance rights and hospital visitation.Update: The FAEC released a statement on its Facebook page Friday afternoon denying that either of the two meeting it held with the presidential hopefuls resulted in an official endorsement of either candidate.last_img read more

US concerned China behind cyberattack on US sites

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — The United States voiced concern Friday over a report that China manipulated international Internet traffic intended for a major Chinese Web service company and used it for a cyberattack on U.S. sites.State Department spokesman Jeff Rathke’s comments follow complaints from anti-online censorship group Greatfire.org that Chinese authorities carried out denial-of-service attacks in late March that intermittently shut down San Francisco-based Github, a U.S.-based computer-code sharing site that hosts some of Greatfire’s data. Greatfire.org said it was a direct target of similar attacks earlier that month. Former Arizona Rep.

We hope that instead of making accusations without solid evidence, the U.S. side can take a more constructive attitude and work together with us to address cyber issues.”He also said the Chinese government, “guarantees the citizens’ freedom of speech on the Internet as well as the public’s right to know, to participate, to be heard and to oversee in accordance with the law.”China’s government blocks thousands of websites to prevent what it deems politically sensitive information from reaching Chinese users. That is known as the “Great Firewall.”Greatfire.org doesn’t reveal where it’s located or who runs it. The Open Technology Fund, a U.S. government-backed initiative to support Internet freedom, says on its website that it provided Greatfire.org with $114,000 in 2014.Copyright © The Associated Press.

He said the U.S. has asked Chinese authorities to investigate and provide the findings.“We view attacks by malicious cyberactors, who target critical infrastructure, U.S. companies and U.S. consumers, as threats to national security and to the economy of the United States,” Rathke said.In its own report, Greatfire.org alleged that Chinese authorities carried out the attacks by installing malicious code on the computers of users visiting the popular Chinese search engine Baidu and related sites and used those computers to overwhelm Github and Greatfire.org websites with service requests.last_img read more

first_imgWhile it looks likely the Tennessee Titans will take a page from The Godfather and make Hasselbeck “an offer he can’t refuse,” it’s good to know that Ken Whisenhunt’s team isn’t putting all their eggs in the Kevin Kolb basket. They are being aggressive and kicking the tires on many options at the quarterback position and that should help assure they land the right one in the end.Will Hasselbeck likely wind up as that option? Doubtful, but as long as he doesn’t wind up back with the division rival Seahawks, it’s a win for the Cardinals.

Paris France Best for Traditionalists What to eat

first_imgParis, FranceBest for TraditionalistsWhat to eat The classic steak frites, smelly cheese, new-wave patisserie and some of the best brunches on the continent. Where to eat You’ll want to do at least one meal in a traditional Parisian brasserie, with their Art Nouveau/Deco interiors, waiters in long aprons and black waistcoats, and classic French fare. The touristy – but fun and cheap – choice is Chartier, where a steak frites in an enormous old-school dining room is a mere £10 If you fancy a pique-nique, swing by funky boulangerie (bakery) Pain Pain to pick up pain au chocolates, lemon tarts and caramel eclairs (from £1) and the Fromagerie Sanders cheese counter in the Marche St Germain for small-batch cheeses you can’t find in the UK. Need a weekday brunch? The hottest ticket in town is Mokonuts (from £6; closed weekends) for a changing menu – expect the likes of chickpea salad, smoked pork loin or langoustines in orange sauce. Where to stay Hip hotel Snob is walking distance to the Louvre and Pompidou Centre and has rooms from £86 a night Flights to Paris from £54 New York, USABest for Big appetitesWhat to eat Thin, crispy New York pizzas, mustard-topped hot dogs, and thick, juicy steaks. Where to eat With its mixed cultural heritage and obsession with doing everything bigger and better than elsewhere, New York City has long been a top foodie destination. But you must start with a classic New York pizza at justifiably famous Joe’s, which you can find in Greenwich Village, on East 14th Street and on Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg. A large take-away slice costs £2. Prefer to sit down for your pizza? Try John’s of Bleeker Street in Soho, where a cheese pie (margarita to you and me) costs from £13. One of the city’s best steakhouses is Peter Luger in Brooklyn (mains around £27), and for the proper hot dog experience, take the subway to Coney Island and grab a spot at the original Nathan’s. And if you want to go posh the city is home to the current World’s Best Restaurant – Eleven Madison Park, where a five-course bar menu will set you back £130.Where to stay Yotel Times Square is a funky microtel, right in the centre of Manhattan, with rooms from £65 per night Flights to New York from £199Published March 2018.

Where to eat A huge arc of city-centre beaches overlooked by an old town rammed with bars selling tapas, Spanish ‘gin-tonics’ and fresh seafood, this city on Spain’s northern coast makes for the perfect foodie break. You’ll need to fly to Biarritz or Bilbao, then take a bus to reach it, but this small transfer is worth it. San Sebastian has three restaurants with three Michelin stars, but also pintxos (Basque tapas) to knock your socks off. The tasting menu at Arzak, which has three Michelin stars and is rated number 30 in the world, costs £180. But the quintessential San Sebastian experience is far more affordable. You simply move from tapas bar to tapas bar all day and night, nibbling on whatever the speciality it as at each one. Rarely will you find a dud (just avoid the handful clearly aimed at tourists). For real authenticity, try the rustic Bar Txepetxa, where each pinxto is just £1-2. And if you want to stay for your whole meal at just one place, hit up rock-and-roll tapas joint A Fuego Negro for new-wave pinxtos, with combinations such as sardine mustard and pineapple (tasting menu £35). Where to stay Cinema-themed Hotel Astoria7 is about 15 minutes from the heart of the action, has smart rooms, and costs from £68 per night.Flights to Biarritz from £27 Copenhagen, DenmarkBest for Experimental eatersWhat to eat Seafood you’ve never heard of, delicate foraged plants, and the best sourdough of your life.Where to eat Birthplace of Noma – one of the most famous restaurants in the world, which kickstarted the foraged-food revolution – the Danish capital has led the charge of new Nordic cuisine and is still the best place to try it. Led by Rene Redzepi, Noma closed a couple of years ago at the height of its popularity to recreate a different style of restaurant, whose non-optional menu changes with the season (vegetables in summer and autumn, meat and game in winter, seafood in spring). The new Noma has just reopened, but it’s almost impossible to get a table and you’ll need a second mortgage to pay for a meal (menus from £265). Instead try glazed pork belly or lumpfish in garlic sauce at Restaurant 108, the only other place in town other that Redzepi is officially involved with (mains from £17). And they serve excellent traditional open sandwiches, such as apple herring with egg yolk, capers and onion, at Almanak, right on the water (mains from £9). Want something cheaper? From May, the Paper Factory across the water from Nyhavn has fantastic street food. And don’t miss out on the sourdough bread at Mirabelle Bakery.Where to stay Ibsens Hotel is cosy and in a great location between the Nyhavn and Norrebro neighbourhoods with rooms from £129 per night Flights to Copehagen from £23center_img Hong Kong, ChinaBest for Foodies on a budgetWhat to eat Steamed and fried dumplings, curry fish balls, neon yellow egg tarts, and roast goose on rice with perfect crispy skin.Where to eat Michelin-starred dim sum, roasted meats and steaming noodles – the best food in Hong Kong isn’t just delicious – it’s also cheap as chips. The tiny shop Tim Ho Wan has a Michelin star – the dumplings are that good. This is the place for a cracking dim sum feast including barbecue pork buns, steamed prawn dumplings and fried turnip cake – and costs from £2 for a serving. Another tiny joint with a Michelin star is Yat Lok on Stanley street (mains from £5) where you go for the crispy roast goose. And if it’s egg tarts, you’re after try the Tai Cheong bakery (69p for four).Where to stayDorsett Mongkok is a romantic choice for couples and costs from £65 a night Flights to Hong Kong from £320 RelatedThings to do in Seville: 9 of the best budget tapas barsSick of microwaved, soggy patatas bravas and pitiful gambas pil pil?

Florence Italy – Reported by Coleman Bentley for

first_imgFlorence, Italy – Reported by Coleman Bentley for Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineSet within the throes of Florence’s 82nd Pitti Immagine Uomo Fair and featuring a Spring/Summer line equally influenced by both F. Scott Fitzgerald’s jazz-age swing and the bold elegance of Africa, Stefano Ricci made sure that Uffizi Gallery Museum’s very first fashion show began, quite literally, in style.Released in tandem with the designer’s 40th Anniversary, the Romeo Conte-directed runway highlighted the classic Italian lines and luxurious materials that have combined to make Stefano Ricci world-famous. Assertive double-breasted jackets and crocodile leather jackets combined with cashmere silk garments to showcase an exquisitely crafted exercise in compliment and contrast, only furthered by a women’s walk-out that featured simple black-silk trousers accented with gold, diamonds and, yes, even more crocodile.Unlike most conventional fashion shows, however, the highlight of Stefano Ricci’s Spring/Summer 2013 debut took place off the runway, as eight Maasai Warriors—who had never before left the confines of the Maasailand region of Tanzania—sat in attendance. It was an expression of gratitude on the part of Maasailand people (as if appointing Stefano Ricci himself Chief of the Masaai community in Simnajiro wasn’t enough) thanking the Ricci family for their involvement in countless public works projects throughout the area.Stefano Ricci graciously accepted the gesture by announcing a new sewing machine-less bespoke atelier (to open next September) that will provide the world with the best and most humane high-fashion available.www.stefanoricci.comlast_img read more

first_imgThe goal is to sign contracts for the development of the port and the marina of Larnaca by the end of 2017, Transport Minister Marios Demetriades said on Tuesday, adding that this will depend on how the process is progressing.On November 26, the government invited parties for expressions of interest for the project to be handed in by March 3. This date has now been pushed back to March 13. The next step is to define the terms of the tender.A decision will also be made about the development of the Paphos marina in March, this one on March 6. President of the Commercial and Industrial Chamber of Paphos Andreas Demetriades announced that a final meeting will take place with the Poseidon consortium where details regarding the overall funding of the project will be discussed and evaluated.The project has faced ten years of delays due to conflicts and court cases initiated by competing bidders.The Supreme Court in December 2015 voted in favour of Poseidon, a joint venture in which Aristo Developers is a mayor stakeholder.If the two sides agree on March 6 a contract will be signed in the subsequent days and the project can finally get off the ground.You May LikeHeart Failure Treatment | Search AdsThe Early Signs Of Heart Failure.

vicious criticism This is itself a sign that free speech in India is not under any threat Sections 499 and 500 of the IPC which provide a remedy of criminal defamation have been part of statutory law for over 70 years and have neither diluted our vibrant democracy nor abridged free speech The argumentative Indian is alive and kicking Free speech is part of our democratic DNA and not yet subjected to any debilitating mutation The law of defamation is a delicate marriage of an odd couple Free speech a fundamental right under 19(1)(a) and the right to reputation a facet of the right to life and liberty under 21 have learnt to coexist Marital disputes are inevitable but reciprocal restraint and respect have meant that divorce is rarely if ever imminent The marital balance was struck by the framers themselves when Article 19(2) provided that nothing in 19(1) (a) shall “affect the operation of any existing law’’ to impose reasonable restrictions including for defamation Sections 499/500 were part of pre-independent India and were thus “existing law” Ergo these were already “constitutionally accepted” when India became a republic Share This Article Related Article The argument that the passage of time and changed circumstances render them unconstitutional is mysterious Six decades of jurisprudence have further constitutionalised reputational rights under the benevolent umbrella of Article 21 Continuing both civil and criminal remedies for their infraction is only natural Arguably the need for this law is even stronger than it was in the 19th century Defamation does not partake only of individual interest It protects reputation which is the person’s ‘’estimation in the eyes of the general public’’ It is necessary for social stability It is what one lives for swears by works his skin off for fights for and dies for States make laws times without number to regulate private transactions and inter se individual rights (for instance Domestic Violence Act Child Labour Act Sexual Harassment Act) and their power to do so is not limited to public issues alone “Reputation of one cannot be allowed to be crucified at the altar of the other’s right of free speech” is what the court rightly emphasised Truly one man’s diatribe can be another man’s nemesis Your swing must necessarily stop where my nose begins And why should not intentional wanton mala fide swings knowing the clear path of the nose and the inexorable consequences when it comes in the way be not subjected to criminal punishment to satiate the complainant’s righteous indignation Otherwise a large collectivity of such unsatiated complainants would create an unstable and imploding society The architecture of Section 499 balances these contrapuntal rights quite soberly Unlike other inflexible provisions of the IPC Sections 499/500 have four explanations and 10 exceptions which do both: they add content and context to the offence as also chisel away at it substantially They constitute significant counter factuals to exclude frivolous complaints The debate on the first exception which requires proof of “public good” in addition to truth as a defence is highly exaggerated Truth may not be necessarily harmless Used maliciously or selectively truth can blow a person’s reputation to smithereens Truth ought not to be an absolute defence because it can be misutilised to project a negative image to specifically intend harm to the reputation of a person without any benefit to the public at large Arguing for some of the successful parties I had provided some illustrations to the court of otherwise truthful yet harmful imputations for instance an imputation that a person is an alcoholic; that two family members are involved in consensual incest; that a person is impotent; that a person suffers from AIDS; that a person is a victim of rape; that the child of a married couple is not fathered by the husband With such elaborate statutory detailing and safeguards the provisions can hardly be said to suffer from the vice of vagueness arbitrariness excessiveness unreasonableness or disproportionality which alone could be grounds of unconstitutionality Protection for “legitimate criticism” or “fair comment” on a question of public interest is not only available in the civil law of defamation but is also covered under exceptions 2 3 5 6 and 9 of Section 499 IPC Section 199(1) the CrPC safeguards the freedom of speech by placing the burden on the complainant to pursue the criminal complaint without involving state machinery This itself filters out many frivolous complainants who are not willing to bear the significant burdens — logistical physical and monetary — of pursuing the complaint Mere misuse or abuse of law actual or potential can never be a reason to render a provision unconstitutional To impale statutory provisions on that stake would cause jurisprudential anarchy Penalising the statutory provision rather than rectifying the systemic problems in our courts is to throw the baby out with the bathwater We must sensitise our lower judiciary to prevent misuse of such provisions rather than amputate the statute and excise sections 499/500 Looked through a reputational prism monetary compensation in civil defamation is not really a panacea for excessive harm done by the defamatory imputation Placing a commercial element on what really cannot be weighed in gold is itself unfair A libelous and slanderous imputation if proved is really an assault on persons their personality their freedom to exist without being discarded by society Defamation is thus a crime against the person Judges decide to the best of their ability after assimilating myriad arguments and digesting humongous and diverse material They seek to advance the law incrementally anchored in continuity and not by jumps leaps or starts To even remotely insinuate that this judgement is the contorted view of a particular set of judges is grossly unfair Worse
