Gas prices to drop in August

first_imgFuel prices at the pump will be ₡4.74 cheaper per liter starting next month, following orders signed by the Public Services Regulatory Authority (ARESEP) last Friday.ARESEP officially informed the state-owned Costa Rican Oil Refinery (RECOPE) that it has to lower fuel prices in order to return to the public ₡1,109 million ($2 million) spent improperly.Results from an audit conducted in late 2014 at the request of lawmakers from the Legislative Commission on Public Spending and Income Control found irregularities in expenses reported by RECOPE during the expansion and modernization of its refinery in the Caribbean port of Limón.According to the audit RECOPE improperly included project costs such as salaries, airline tickets, travel expenses and professional services in one of its requests to ARESEP to raise fuel prices. Those expenses should have never been charged to Costa Ricans at gas pumps, the investigation found.The price cut announcement comes just a week after a price hike went into effect. Higher per liter prices ranging from ₡16 to ₡29 entered into force last week for Diesel, Super and Plus gasoline.

Southport Connecticut – Reported by Elite Travele

first_imgSouthport, Connecticut – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineIt takes a striking space and a special design touch to stand out at an address filled with one-of-a-kind accommodations, and the new Woodward-Newman Presidential Suite at the Delamar Southport in Southport, Connecticut, has all that and more. The 2,900-square-foot Presidential-style accommodation spreads across the hotel’s top floor with three bedrooms, and unfolds as a captivating setting for multiple uses, including weekend getaways, long-term stays, executive-style meetings and events from baby showers to dinner parties and Sweet 16 celebrations.The Woodward-Newman Suite is named for local legends Joanne Woodward and the late Paul Newman, who called nearby Westport home. The celebrity couple’s philanthropic efforts – most notably supporting the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp for seriously ill children – have long served as inspiration and a charitable cause for managing partner of Greenwich Hospitality Group and owner of Delamar Southport, Charles Mallory.Continuing the tradition of employing multiple designers to create individual spaces throughout the hotel, Mallory enlisted local interior designer Rebecca Hathaway Lynch to fashion the Woodward-Newman Suite with chic New England-inspired décor, custom and locally sourced furnishings, a gorgeously textured palette and surprising details that comfort at every turn. Though based in Southport, Lynch remains greatly influenced by an illuminating 18-year residence in Milan and London. She set out with a singular vision for a functional space that would have guests feel at home with just a step inside the door.Lynch further tapped into area boutiques, such as Tiger Lily’s in Greenwich, as well as antique dealers and estate sales for unique furnishings, many of which she had restored or recast. She thoughtfully selected pieces from Mallory’s personal collection of original art for just the right works to suit the elegant space, from a classic English landscape over the fireplace in the living room, to contemporary works in the front hall, and an original 1950s Paul Newman movie poster in the office library.Delamar Southport welcomes guests to indulge in the new Woodward-Newman Suite to celebrate any occasion with the Private Pied-à-Terre package, which includes: two nights’ accommodation, use of a new 2012 Mercedes-Benz for the weekend courtesy of Mercedes-Benz of Fairfield, signature cocktails and charcuterie plate for two served in the suite, private concierge service and complimentary breakfast for two each morning. The Private Pied-à-Terre package starts at $2,500 a night.The Woodward-Newman Presidential Suite is available for $2,200 a night. Rates at Delamar Southport start from $259.

From September 25th 2008 to January 10th 2009 The

first_imgFrom September 25th 2008 to January 10th 2009 The Kremlin Museum in Moscow will open its doors to the jeweller Gianmaria Buccellati, hosting a retrospective exhibition of the Master Jeweller and Master Goldsmith’s work in the famed Assumption Belfry.The location of the exhibition is particularly special for two reasons: The Assumption Belfry was built between 1523 and 1543 by an Italian architect and it borders with the renowned belfry of Ivan the Great, said to mark the precise geographic center of Moscow. The work of Gianmaria Buccellati will be exhibited in an architectural structure of Italianate design and will be in the exact center of this enchanting capital, allowing visitors to discover the history of the famous dynasty of goldsmiths at first hand.The inherent uniqueness of each of the one hundred and forty seven items selected for display is the fil rouge that links this marvellous collection of objects and jewellery. Each piece has been chosen to best illustrate the history and the evolution of the ‘maison’. In addition to pieces from Gianmaria’s personal collection of jewellery and museum pieces, there will be a selection of items from the family archives created by Mario Buccellati, the founder of this celebrated jewellery house.The Assumption Belfry room makes a fitting setting for the spectacular jewels and artifacts created by Mario and Gianmaria Buccellati: hand-crafted honeycomb creations, precious stones in a palate of colors, royal necklaces and lavish, decorative cups.Attention will focus on the technical skills of the Buccellati artisans coupled with the artistry of the designers, which together reflect the traditions of heritage, integrity and first class craftsmanship that are synonymous with this Milanese house.Exhibiting in a museum of such prominence only serves to confirm Buccellati’s position as, not only one of the world’s finest jewellery houses, but also as a recognized producer of the most exquisite silverware and “objet d’art”.Gianmaria Buccellati has already collaborated with some of the worlds most reputable museums: in 2000 with a retrospective on Buccellati at The Smithsonian Museum in Washington, in 2006 he cooperated with the Poldi Pezzoli Museum in Milan to revitalize the Room of the Golds. Mr. Buccellati developed an exhibit which demonstrated to visitors each stage required to create a lace workmanship ring. This installation communicated the great passion for detail and accuracy of craft needed for each unique jewel to be realized. In 2007, when The Room of Goldsmiths of the 19th Century was opened in The Palazzo Pitti Museum, Gianmaria Buccellati gifted two diamond lace-workmanship brooches, including one from his father’s designs,to the permanent collection. The exhibition at the Kremlin Museum marks a new and important step for Buccellati and highlights the high artistic value of every single creation signed Gianmaria Buccellati. More than two hundred years of the Buccellati family’s artistic creativity will be on display at this extraordinary exhibition, an affirmation of the timeless style, enduring artistry and unique talent that is the essence of Buccellati.last_img read more

through competition and choice, 15. Syed was granted a new trial this week after 16 years in prison. Regency Beauty Institute is permanently closing on September 28,S. Russian and South Korean intelligence officials later concluded that some of the scientists eventually succeeded in traveling to North Korea to offer blueprints and technical advice for the country’s missiles programBut US analysts see more persuasive evidence in the actual missiles that North Korea has put on display over the past two years In the most striking case the Hwasong-10 or Musudan a single-stage missile successfully tested by North Korea in June 2016 appears to use the same engine and many design features as the Soviet Union’s R-27 Zyb a submarine-launched ballistic missile designed by Makeyev scientists and advertised in one of the brochures obtained by The PostThe fact that it has taken Pyongyang so long to exploit the Russian designs is perplexing but North Korea had long lacked the sophisticated materials engineering expertise and computer-driven machine tools for the kinds of advanced missiles it has recently tested weapons experts say With an industrial base enhanced by years of slow patient acquisition efforts North Korea is only now in a position to capitalize on technology it had been sitting on for years or even decades analysts say"North Korea was just recently able to acquire machine tools that were state-of-the-art in the 1990s meaning they are still damn good machine tools" Wright said "Once you have the plans and are able to get your hands on the materials and the right kinds of tools you have a real leg up"The US founders of Sea Launch Investors saw their joint project with the Russians as the profitable answer to two pressing global concerns company documents showOne was a shortage of launch capacity for a new generation of satellites servicing the rapidly expanding global telecommunications industry The other was the problem of newly idle weapons scientists working in labs and factories across the former Soviet Union The abrupt halt to the Cold War in 1991 had upended the careers of the thousands of physicists chemists microbiologists and engineers who built the Red Army’s vast stockpile of nuclear chemical and biological weapons along with the missiles for delivering them Once among the elites of Soviet society these highly skilled scientists now faced an uncertain future with little meaningful work and a plummeting standard of livingThe United States would ultimately commit billions of dollars to help secure or dismantle Soviet weapons stockpiles and repurpose former weapons laboratories Yet in the early 1990s US officials remained gravely worried about the possible leakage of Soviet weapons secrets and perhaps of the weapons themselvesThe Americans who founded Sea Launch Investors in 1992 believed that their project could help prevent the poaching of Russian weapons experts by terrorists and rogue states at least from the community of rocket scientists at the Makeyev Rocket Design Bureau the premier Soviet manufacturer of submarine-launched ballistic missiles headquartered in Miass a small city in Russia’s southern Ural mountains"We not only help the Russians to pay their bills and stabilize their country by showing them how the free enterprise system works" John Draim a Navy pilot and engineer wrote in the company’s business plan in 1993 "but we also help those Americans who are looking for an economical way to get satellites into orbit"In May of that year a Protocol of Intent agreement was signed by retired Adm Thomas Moorer a former Joint Chiefs chairman and head of the American team and retired Russian Adm Fyodor Novoselov a former deputy fleet commander for shipbuilding and armaments The joint venture acquired exclusive rights to Makeyev’s inventory of submarine-launched ballistic missiles and then developed marketing materials that showcased a line of products that could be converted for use in commercial ventures These included a missile known as the R-27 Zyb – "ripple" in Russian – the squat blunt-nosed workhorse of the Soviet Union’s Yankee-1 Class submarine fleet along with larger more powerful missiles such as the 50-foot-tall R-29 Shtil ("calm" in Russian") and the newer solid-fueled R-39 "Rif" The latter two were true intercontinental ballistic missiles with a range of more than 5000 milesBut the marquee item was the Priboi or "Surf" a hybrid model that the investors planned to create by combining parts of the Shtil and Rif into two-stage spacecraft designed to put small satellites into orbit The Surf’s most extraordinary feature was that it could be fired into space without a submarine or conventional launchpad Using techniques that both the United States and Russia had developed experimentally in the 1960s and ’70s the missile could be launched from a floating tube virtually anywhere in the world Here Russian missiles had a distinct advantage as their lower specific gravity allowed them to float vertically like an ocean buoy Moreover the engines for Soviet submarine missiles were specifically designed to ignite while their nozzles were still in the waterBackers of the plan envisioned a day when Russia’s missiles could launch commercial satellites into space quickly and cheaply using a nearly infinite number of launch sites across the world’s oceans"Erection in the water even for the largest rockets will take less than a minute" Draim wrote in the 1993 business plan Telecommunications companies would save millions of dollars he wrote while eliminating a real threat to US national securityAs the months passed Makeyev’s managers became increasingly frustrated as their American partners ran into a series of obstacles including reservations about whether the joint venture was permissible under US-Russian arms-control agreements In April 1993 then-Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen Colin Powell informed Sea Launch Investors that the project could not proceed without a government review and a formal waiver of the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty No waiver was granted and by the spring of 1995 it was clear that the company was a dead end"The present ground rules practically put us out of business" Moorer complained in a memo on April 26 of that yearBy then some of the Makeyev drawings and blueprints had apparently gone out the door The Russian scientists arrested at the Moscow airport in August 1993 acknowledged to investigators that they had been recruited as a group to assist North Korea in building rockets ostensibly as space boosters for satellites In "The Dead Hand" David E Hoffman’s Pulitzer Prize-winning history of the last years of the Cold War a Russian security official describes how the North Koreans systematically chose experts from across Makeyev’s entire production line from fuels specialists to engineers who designed the nose cone and payload chamber The salary offer $1200 a month was 200 times as much as some of the scientists were earning at home"This was the first case when we noticed the North Korean attempts to steal missile technology" the security official is quoted as sayingOther attempts would follow US and South Korean intelligence officials have confirmed that Makeyev scientists eventually did land jobs as consultants for the North Koreans and technical drawings were passed to Pyongyang either directly or through intermediariesSome of Makeyev’s missile secrets appear to have left Russia before the joint-venture effort officially disbanded Still years later the company’s former vice president remains convinced that most if not all could have been kept locked away if Western governments had acted quickly"We just needed to be creative and try and win the peace" Gillman said "But our government and military and intelligence agencies were short-sighted"On June 22 2016 North Korea successfully tested a mysterious new missile that differed dramatically from anything in Pyongyang’s known arsenal The 36-foot-tall missile had a squat snub-nosed frame and used a liquid propellent more powerful than the kerosene-based fuels the North Koreans had used in the past potentially allowing it to fly farther with heavier payloadsThe missile was dubbed the Hwasong-10 or Musudan But experts noted striking similarities to the R-27 Zyb or "ripple" manufactured by the Makeyev Rocket Design Bureau in Miass Two months later on Aug 24 2016 North Korea successfully tested the Pukguksong-1 a submarine-launched missile that also incorporates some of the same features as the Zyb Both models are "generally regarded as derived from the designs of the Makeyev Bureau’s R-27" said Joshua Pollack an analyst at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at Monterey CaliforniaThose two tests were followed in recent months by even greater technological leaps culminating in the successful tests this year of North Korea’s first true intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of reaching every city in the continental United States There have been no further tests of the Musudan but satellite images released this month show that North Korea is building floating barges thought to be intended for tests of new submarine-launched missiles The construction is occurring in two different ports on opposite sides of the countryUS analysts also believe that North Korea is working on an improved version of the Pukguksong"I have to assume that Makeyev pitched part if not all of these concepts and proposals to other interested investors including the North Koreans" said Michael Elleman a former missiles scientist and a senior fellow at the International Institute for Strategic Studies a British think tankWhile there is "solid evidence" that North Korea acquired blueprints for the R-27 Zyb there is no proof so far that Pyongyang is building a clone of the R-29 Shtil with its more powerful engine and 5000-mile range But Elleman cautioned: "It may be there and appear in the future"Author Information: Joby Warrick joined the Post’s national staff in 1996 He has covered national security the

president Atiku Abubakar is not over yet This is as the NPA has handed a two-week ultimatum to the company to remit an outstanding $48 million that ought to have been paid into the agency’s Treasury Single Account (TSA) in 2017 Intels a logistics and facilities services provider in the maritime and oil and gas sectors was co-founded by Gabriele Volpi an Italian national and former vice-president Atiku Abubakar Atiku has since sold down most of his interest in the company to the former Lagos State governor and APC national leader Bola Tinubu Speaking yesterday during an interview with CNBC Africa Managing Director of NPA Ms Hadiza Bala Usman said Intels’ notice of termination would stand if the company fails to settle its debt “I am giving Intels a possible two-week window to provide payment two weeks from now following which the notice of termination will not be withdrawn” she said “One of the issues we have had with Intels is their non-compliance with the TSA As you are aware the Nigerian government instituted the treasury single account which is the account that all revenues of government need to be paid into “Intels collects revenue on behalf of the Nigeria Ports Authority and had refused to comply with TSA and kept retaining those revenues in their coffers “So we insisted that they must comply no company is above the laws of the country and we went through the whole process” she was quoted to have said in the interview She spoke further on what caused the disagreement between the maritime agency and the logistics firm accusing the company of failing to comply with the ground rules “I think it’s important for all entities operating in an environment to adhere to the rules and regulations” she said “What we seek to ensure is with you have a level playing field and you must comply to regulations At no point was Nigeria Ports Authority not going to remit their own portion of the revenues “All other third-party agreements that we have in the Nigerian Ports Authority have a similar structure so why should Intels feel it can operate outside of the law The other companies are complying why don’t you comply” She added Last year Nigerian government directed the NPA to terminate the boats pilotage monitoring and supervision agreement that the agency has with Intels Nigeria Limited Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice Mallam Abubakar Malami (SAN) in a letter dated September 27 2017 Ms Hadiza Bala-Usman said that the agreement which has allowed Intels to receive revenue on behalf of NPA for 17 years violates the Nigerian Constitution especially in view of the implementation of the TSA Malami said the agreement which allowed Intels to receive revenue on behalf of NPA for 17 years violated Sections 80(1) and 162(1) and (10) of the constitution The AGF wondered if the management of the NPA and Intels did not take cognisance of the relevant provisions when negotiating the agreement in 2010 But Intels insisted that it had settled the dispute with NPA and was awaiting the AGF’s clearance The firm admitted the infractions and apologised for its initial rejection of the regulator’s directive on the TSA stating its readiness to comply In its apology dated October 25 2017 Intels through one of its directors Silvano Bellinato suggested that an agreement that would ensure “mutual business satisfaction” be signed between the company and NPA Bellinato also sought assurances that Intels’ share of collected revenues would always be remitted to it in good time after the TSA account with the

into one group does not per se lead to any conclusion of homogeneity among them? There was a self-incriminating cynicism in which this homogenous category was constructed Minority OBCs ought to be included in existing scheme of reservations Excluding Muslim OBCsfor examplesolely on account of their religion is unfair But is there a case to be made for a set apart from the fact that they are a minority What does minority add to a backward OBC tag The presumptive argument is this Minority (particularly Muslim) OBCs cannot compete with Hindu OBCs This is a plausible argumentbut only superficially so This will be true of many subgroups Malas and Madigas; Gujjars and Jats cannot compete with each other It is possible to bite the bullet and accept greater and greater sub-classification Courtssince Indra Sawhneyhave been open to sub-classification But since Chinnayyathey have baulked at the reduction ad absurdum this can lead to The presence of different social groups in government needs to be enhanced But the manner in which it is enhanced is important We seem to be moving towards reducing the legitimacy of institutions entirely to social composition: so much for Gujjarsfor Malasfor Jatsfor Muslims and so on This is not about equal opportunityit is about distributing the spoils of state power strictly according to castethus perpetuating it These are two entirely different visionsand we are unconsciously drifting from one to the other There is another subtler issue The court is repeatedly demanding evidence for backwardness But there is no empirical and normative framework for the relevant evidence For examplework by Rakesh Basant shows that it is quite likely that the best predictor of individuals access to education is their parents education If trueit opens up an intriguing possibility An effective targeting mechanism would be to design an affirmative action scheme based on the degree of education parents receivedand cut through contorted community classifications Orat a greater level of complexitythere are deprivation indexes that allow more variegated targeting But the relevance of this kind of evidence is ruled out right from the start The evidence in terms of caste/ minority assumes the framework it seeks to establish; it seeks to perpetuate the dominance of these categories rather than transcend them Some contend that the courts should entirely defer to the executive and legislature on these matters Howeverit is not clear why courts cannot ensure whether like cases are being treated alikeor whether the constitutional project of emancipation from caste is being reversed But the courts are normatively confused about the objectives of reservation The recent Supreme Court judgment in UP Power Corporation vs Rajesh Kumar & Othersstriking down UP government rules providing for consequential senioritybrings this out One of the grounds on which it strikes down rules is insufficient data But the demand for data is confusing There is no clarity on the rationale for the unit of data: why should it be the cadrerather than services as a whole To what normative end do we require data The court relies on Nagarajwhich had a normative core Reservations are a device for compensating for unequal starting positions: they are justified in areas like admission and recruitment You are making unequals equal by compensatory measures In the case of promotionsthe argument goesonce you have equalisedpreferential treatment will mean treating equals unequally This was leading to anomalieswhere the gap between the chances of promotion of general category officers and reserved category officials was risingalmost to the point of making equality of opportunity a problematic concept In Nagarajthe court was trying to articulate an equal opportunity conception of reservation rather than an equal representation conception of reservation But ironicallyin UP Power Corpthe courts demand for data is premised on the very framework Nagaraj was negating Is reservation about anti-discriminationequal opportunitysocial mobility or simply sharing the spoils of the state In the case of Dalitsall four logics combined But each has different logicin terms of how you design programmes and what data is relevant It is not clear what logic the court is using The use of data requires a prior normative framework Empiricallyit also requires an incredibly disciplined sifting through endogeneityselection bias and alternative hypothesis testing The constitutional politics on reservation is about to heat up The Supreme Court has engaged in an act of monumental evasion by not pronouncing on the constitutionality of breaching the 50 per cent limit on quota We hope it willin the appeal to Krishnaiahuse a large bench to systematically sort through a complicated set of issues In the political vacuum that we have nowall bets are off on the kinds of constitutional inanities and pinched-up conceptions of citizenship our political parties will subject us to Instead of focusing
