The Movement for the Liberation of the People was formally registered in Guatemala as a new political party on Nov. 7. It represents an electoral vehicle for the Peasant Development Committee (Comité de Desarrollo Campesino — Codeca), one of the organizations that has led the struggle against the government of President Jimmy Morales.MLP was registered to participate in the 2019 general elections after reaching the minimum number of members needed. Its stated objectives as a political party include: “nationalizing all goods and services privatized in the country, promoting the process of a popular and plurinational constituent assembly, building the plurinational state from the Indigenous autonomous areas, recovering lands, territories and water for cultivation and national consumption and organizing the whole country into communities for the recovery and defense of dignity and plurinational sovereignty to build good living.” (publinenews.gt, Nov. 7)The formation of the MLP comes in the context of a struggle against the impunity of corrupt politicians representing the oligarchy and the failure to prosecute them. The Morales government recently provoked major protests when it attempted to suspend the International Commission Against Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG).Although the masses and the Constitutional Court rejected the president’s attempt to protect himself from CICIG investigations, Morales has effectively prevented the head of CICIG from returning to the country.But some victories have been won. At the time of this writing, three political parties have been suspended since 2015 for illegal activities (mainly illegal financing), including the Renewed Democratic Freedom party, the party with the most seats in Congress, and the Patriot Party. The PP is the party of former President Otto Pérez Molina, who resigned before the last elections amid an investigation by CICIG.Both were part of the governing coalition. Two other coalition members, including Morales’ FCN-Nación, are in the process of being suspended. Four opposition parties are also in the process of suspension.With the corrupt politicians on the defensive and the formation of a new grassroots political party focused on structural reform, the 2019 elections could be important for the country.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

ABC News(CHICAGO) — Two potential suspects in the alleged racial attack on “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett have been arrested, Chicago police said Friday.Police clarified that the two men were placed under arrest Wednesday night after police met them at the airport.They have not yet been charged yet, police said.“Police can detain the potential suspects for an additional 24 hours past the 48 hour holding period under special circumstances, but it must go through the prosecutor’s office and has to be clear process,” police added to ABC News.Police also confirmed that “they have a relationship with [Jussie].”This news comes hours after police told ABC News they were classifying them as potential suspects.“Detectives have probable cause that they may have been involved in an alleged crime and we are working to corroborate the allegations and investigative timeline as our investigation continues,” police said.They also shut down any reports that there was evidence to classify the alleged attack as a hoax.“While we haven’t found any video documenting the alleged attack, there is also no evidence to say that this is a hoax,” police added. “The alleged victim is being cooperative at this time and continues to be treated as a victim, not a suspect.”Chicago PD had confirmed Thursday that they identified and were questioning the two “persons of interest” in the alleged racial attack. One of them has previously appeared on “Empire,” according to a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation.Police say they were tracking the two suspects and were aware of who they were “for a while,” and that investigators learned that the two individuals were returning to Chicago on Wednesday from Nigeria.The two suspects are U.S. citizens of Nigerian descent, they added.Detectives also questioned Smollett Thursday, the official said.Attorney Gloria Schmidt, who is representing the two persons of interest, told Chicago CBS station WBBM that her clients were detained at O’Hare Airport Wednesday evening and were unaware of the attack on Smollett.“When they first learned what happened to him, they were horrified,” Schmidt said. “This is someone that they know, this is someone that they work with, so they don’t want to see somebody go through that … They really don’t understand how [police] even got information that linked them to this horrific crime, but they’re not guilty of it.”Late last month, Smollett, who portrays a gay musician on Fox’s “Empire,” told police he was brutally attacked in what authorities are calling a suspected hate crime.He said the attackers put a noose around his neck, poured an unknown substance, likely bleach, on him and used their hands, feet and teeth as weapons in the assault, according to police. Smollett said the attackers also yelled “This is MAGA country” during the attack.He was subsequently hospitalized and released, local authorities said.In his first interview since police say he was attacked last month, the singer and actor said on “Good Morning America” that he was heartbroken when he found out that people questioned the details of his story.“I have to acknowledge the lies, and the hate. And it feels like if I had said it was a Muslim, or a Mexican, or someone black, I feel like the doubters would have supported me much more. A lot more,” Smollett, 36, told ABC News’ Robin Roberts. “And that says a lot about the place that we are in our country right now.”Prior to the police identifying and interviewing the two persons of interest, Smollett said he believes the two men in the photo released by police in the days after the attack are the perpetrators.“I don’t have any doubt in my mind that that’s them,” Smollett said. “Never did.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

The Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey has established and maintained a number of antarctic bases since 1945. They are located on the Graham Land peninsula, in the South Shetland and South Orkney Islands, and at South Georgia; over the years a great deal of general information about the various species of seals has accumulated. I have spent a total of thirty-six months in the Dependencies between 1948 and 1951 and some weeks in the Falkland Islands, occupied with a special study of the elephant seal, although opportunities were taken for work on other species. As a result we now have a fairly comprehensive picture of the status of the various pinniped species in this sector of the southern oceans.

Existing family units at Peck’s Beach Village between Fourth and Fifth streets, Simpson and West avenues.The Ocean City Housing Authority has hired an outside company to plan and seek funding for what it hopes will be a complete rebuilding of its low-income housing units in Ocean City.Pennrose, a Philadelphia-based property management company with experience in multifamily and mixed-income developments, is working on a plan that could redevelop the Peck’s Beach Village project near Fourth Street and West Avenue and add a second building to Bay View Manor at Sixth Street and West Avenue.Existing senior units at Peck’s Beach Village between Third and Fourth streets, Simpson and West avenues.The Housing Authority envisions a project that would restore Haven Avenue as a through-street where it is now interrupted by Peck’s Beach Village and would include 122 newly constructed townhouse-style units, according to OCHA Executive Director Alesia Watson.The Authority also wants to add 38 units to the senior housing at Bay View Manor in a new three- or four-story building that would be constructed on the building’s adjacent parking lot.The senior units at Bay View Manor at Sixth Street and West Avenue and the parking lot where a new building could be built.No specific plan for the proposed developments and no overall cost estimate exist yet, as Pennrose continues to seek funding and financing, Watson said.Pennrose is working to secure a $6 million to $7 million federal Community Development Block Grant for housing authorities affected by Superstorm Sandy. Watson said Ocean City applied for the funding more than a year ago.The company is also seeking competitive Low-Income Housing Tax Credits that encourage private investment in affordable housing._____Sign up for free daily news updates from Ocean City._____The Housing Authority also hopes to partner with the City of Ocean City and potentially use some of the $2.1 million in development fees that the city has been required to collect for affordable housing initiatives.City Council voted on Dec. 18 to commit $1,470,000 to construction of affordable housing and $630,000 to affordability assistance. The resolution did not designate any specific project.Municipalities throughout the state are required to “use it or lose it” when it comes to the collection of affordable housing assessments. But a constantly changing set of state Council on Affordable Housing (COAH) goals and guidelines frustrates many towns that try to act.Ocean City Business Administrator Jim Mallon said the council resolution was not directly related to the Ocean City Housing Authority.“We wanted to be on the record that we intend to use the money,” Mallon said.Any effort to direct the $2.1 million to the Housing Authority would require council action and COAH approval.But “a nice partnership” exists between the city and the Housing Authority, he said.City Council in September 2014 approved a professional services contract with Mullin and Lonergan Associates for consulting services on community development programs, and the city is sharing that resource with the Housing Authority.The Housing Authority is not run by the city. It is under the auspices of the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).The Authority currently administers 20 Peck’s Beach Village units on the north side of Fourth Street (between Simpson and West avenues) for senior citizens and 40 units on the south side of Fourth Street for families. The senior housing at Bay View Manor includes 61 units in a five-story building.The units are rented to low-income residents at low rental rates — with preference given to veterans, the disabled and existing Ocean City residents, according to Watson.The new units would continue to be rentals, she said, and the Housing Authority would work from a waiting list in choosing new tenants. But she said the new development could become a mixed-income project — with some units rented at fair-market rates.She said OCHA looked at elevating the Peck’s Beach Village units, which sit on a flood-prone stretch of the island, and were substantially damaged in Superstorm Sandy. But the estimated cost was as high as $125,000 to $130,000 per unit, and the 60-year-old buildings could not necessarily withstand the process.The new elevated units would include parking under the structures, and existing Peck’s Beach Village parking lots could be preserved and perhaps elevated, she said. Among the 20 senior units at Peck’s Beach Village, she estimated that five or six have cars, and she said about 16 of the 61 seniors at Bay View Manor drive.Her vision includes the inclusion of businesses such as a hair salon or convenience store within the new community.“We’re not going to just build houses. We’ll generate revenue and give jobs back to the community,” she said.“Everybody keeps saying, ‘You know it’s going to be a challenge,’ ” Watson said.But she said she believes construction could begin in 2016 and new low-income tenants could find homes in Ocean City in 2017. Construction would be completed in stages in a system that would eliminate the need to displace residents.“Those units need to be updated, and they need to comply with new FEMA requirements,” Second Ward Councilman Antwan McClellan said. “It’s a great thing.”All Peck’s Beach Village residents were displaced by the damage from Superstorm Sandy in October 2012, and the city committed $1.2 million to expedite repairs at the federal housing project and help residents return to their homes.The action ultimately led to the resignation of three Ocean City Housing Authority members as they raised questions about the process and the idea of investing in repair of buildings that would have to be replaced.The Housing Authority will try to recover whatever money it can by selling equipment from the renovated units, Watson said.Pennrose is being compensated according a fee structure that gives the company a share of future developer fees. The structure allows the Housing Authority to pay no fees up front. A proposed funding schedule (subject to change depending on the final size and scope of projects) has Pennrose collecting $834,025 between 2016 and 2032 — with the bulk of it coming in 2016 and 2017.
Soaring ingredients prices have been one of the talking points of the baking industry this year. With global demand increasing and speculation pushing prices higher, securing a reliable supply route is more challenging than ever for bakers.RM Curtis managing director Mark Setterfield, who has 20 years’ experience in ingredients sourcing, wants his business to be “front of mind” for anyone seeking a reliable source of fruits, nuts, pulses, seeds and spices. Curtis’ core business is sourcing and packing a wide range of dry ingredients, including nuts, dried fruit, spices and cereals for a variety of customers, from wholesale and foodservice to retail and food manufacture. It also offers consultancy on new product development and markets a range of branded products, such as Sunmagic, Eat Natural bars and snack range Snacking Essentials.The 158-year-old business has traditionally focused on sourcing and packing ingredients for wholesale and foodservice customers. Today, this makes up around 40% of its total packing operation, with 30 staff at Halstead, Essex, sorting products into 1kg bags for major names including Brakes, Batleys, Makro and Nisa, to be sold on as own-label or under the Curtis brand. More recently, the business has branched out into supplying retailers and now packs for both Morrisons and Netto.Bulk supply is a newer strand of its business, which has grown swiftly to account for 60% of its packing division. Eight years ago, Setterfield spotted an opportunity to supply larger, 25kg sacks and 12.5kg boxes to food manufacturers. “It was logical to extend our customer base, and that opened our doors to the food manufacturing sector,” Setterfield says.Bulk supply customers include Northern Foods, Matthew Walker, Solway, Fox’s and Dalepak. The new business has helped boost the company’s turnover by 600% – from £6m in 2000 to £42m in 2008.So, how does Curtis go about sourcing its products and checking their quality? Often it is simply a case of testing samples sent in from abroad. At other times, a visit is needed. “We establish their credibility and monitor their stocks to ensure they are performing. They need to pass certain minimums and they must have HACCP processes in place,” Setterfield says. Curtis builds up strong relationships with its own suppliers. “So we have a reliable source when markets go crazy,” says Setterfield, adding, “some companies buy from any old merchant who may or may not ship.”== Interest in traceability ==Curtis’ customers certainly keep it on its toes. “The story retailers want to hear is about provenance,” he says. “They want to know about the supply chain being secure, that there is full traceability even back to the tree it was grown from.”Setterfield continues: “The industry as a whole is looking for something much more interesting for its customers.” Curtis certainly goes out of its way to source the unusual and interesting. Its range includes the trendiest ’superfoods’, such as Vitamin C-rich baobab pulp and antioxidant-rich goji berries.As well as gaining new business, Curtis has a major challenge over the next year, as global demand for fruit and nuts spikes and prices rise proportionally. Setterfield says: “India and China are consuming boatloads. They seem to have a growing middle class, able and interested in looking for products that would never have been in their diets before. They are buying almonds and pecans in massive quantities.”There has been an increase in demand, leaving less-than-optimum supply. The situation has been fuelled by speculation. It can be pushed to inflated levels by speculators, with scant regard for the consequences. Other conditions are unpredictable.”The pound has been devalued over the past year and, as an importing company, anything we sell is in pounds. In my 20 years in the business, I’ve never seen anything like it.”Setterfield also fears the current recession is exacerbating the situation. “It’s a worrying time, because it may impact on people’s eating habits. It could be the indulgent products that are hit first.”But Setterfield is staying positive. He says: “We’re going to push out as much as we can. There are [other ingredients] companies out there who are feeling the pinch, but we will go on being realistic in our margins, as our position in the marketplace continues to grow.”
