The Costa Rican Coast Guard captured a boat Monday that ferried at least 1.4 metric tons of marijuana, according to a Public Security Ministry press release. Yesterday evening, a U.S. P3 maritime surveillance plane spotted a suspicious boat some 100 kilometers off the coast of Limón. When authorities pursued the vessel, its crew began throwing packages of drugs overboard into the Caribbean, the ministry stated. The Coast Guard was able to recover 1,355 kilograms of “high red” marijuana, both on board and in the surrounding waters.Coast Guard officers arrested three Costa Ricans surnamed Ortega, Zúñiga and Muñoz. Muñoz was wanted on a previous weapons charge. Police also arrested a fourth suspect from Nicaragua.U.S. authorities involved in the operation said the boat captured Monday evening had the same call numbers as another boat that escaped the Costa Rican Coast Guard on Sept. 12, after its crew threw an additional 1.4 metric tons of marijuana overboard.At the end of August, Drug Control Police reported 2.9 metric tons of marijuana confiscated during 2014. That total is now doubled.

Andrew Heibel (CEO AACB), Simon Latchford (CEO VSC), Karen Bolinger (President AACB), Meaghan Scanlon MP (Qld Assistant Minister Tourism Industry Development) and Kelly Maynard (Business Events Manager of Tourism Australia).Best in business descend on Sunshine CoastThe 29th Association of Australian Convention Bureau Annual (AACB) Conference has kicked off on the Sunshine Coast.The event theme, “The next wave: Exceeding tomorrow’s expectations” has attracted over 120 attendees – a record number and a who’s who from the business events and conference sector.AACB CEO, Andrew Hiebl, said that Australia’s strongest business events competitors will come together on the Sunshine Coast to collaborate with the aim of growing the industry. We will be hearing from local and international speakers with the future in mind, covering topics from destination storytelling techniques to the impacts of emerging technologies.Visit Sunshine Coast (VSC) CEO, Simon Latchford, said the Sunshine Coast has gone from strength to strength as a popular destination for business events and incentive experiences and hosting this is the AACB event for the first time on the Sunshine Coast will demonstrate what the region can offer.“With business events estimated to be worth $40.8 million to the Sunshine Coast region, showcasing what our region can offer and collaborating with the best in the business makes good sense. Hosting a prestigious industry event such as the AACB Conference attracts high profile industry speakers and experts, providing a unique opportunity for knowledge exchange.“We welcome the recent announcement of a feasibility study into a new convention centre for the Sunshine Coast. A dedicated, multi-functional meetings and events centre would be a huge asset for the Sunshine Coast and would be a centrepiece for the new Maroochydore town centre.“However, in the interim we have proven not to be constrained by our location and facilities to host more high yielding ‘briefcase & boardies style’ business events. As a regional destination competing against the capital cities, we can offer the same level of service and innovation, but with the added benefits of the breath-taking landscapes and accompanying activities that you don’t come across in a big city,” said Mr Latchford.The prestigious AACB conference was secured by Business Events Sunshine Coast and is timely for the Sunshine Coast with the Queensland Government announcing last week a commitment of $700,000 to develop a business case for the Sunshine Coast Entertainment, Convention and Exhibition Centre via the Maturing the Infrastructure Pipeline Program.Delegates enjoyed a relaxed welcome function with Sunshine Coast style hospitality last night at hot new venue, ‘Pier 33’ in Mooloolaba.Source = Association of Australian Convention Bureau

But with so many people aspiring to become actors every day, Indeed, CSDS-IBN National Tracker Poll survey suggest that 35 percent of the state’s Muslim votes might swing in favour of?the Trinamool Congress while surprisingly Congress might get 28 percent of the votes and the BJP not more than 5 percent Keeping with the mood reflected in the survey where1310 voters were interviewed in March 2014 and 1264 in January Mamata Banerjee has also gone all guns blazing to woo the Muslim vote in Bengal Mamata Banerjee AFP In fact Banerjee’s manifesto opens by making a strong case for a ‘secular India’ – one that makes adequate space for all its diverse groups of people "We believe in a Unique India characterised by its unique diversities. We believe in a secular India" declares the TMC manifesto right at the outset In fact the survey shows that TMC’s vote share too has witnessed a sharp climb over the past month While in January 33 percent of the respondents chose to vote for Trinamool in March this year 38 percent said that they would vote for TMC There might be a combination of reasons why the confidence in Mamata Banerjee as the chosen leader for West Bengal has grown Given that the polls have been made to look like they are revolving around an axis called Modi by both the Congress and the BJP the way Banerjee dealt with him is significant The BJP’s Prime Ministerial candidate intended to make a blustering impression on West Bengal with his debut rally True to his trademark part-provocative part-dismissive style Modi also made statements ripe for a retort or two by the Mamata Banerjee government "You were promised parivartan (change) but have you witnessed that parivartan" he had asked in Kolkata taking a not-so-subtle dig at the TMC’s winning poll refrain Banerjee widely considered an extraordinary short-fuse and a loose cannon kept uncharacteristically quiet and let Modi’s taunt die a quick cold death in the absence of attention Despite his overtures and slight taunts Banerjee refused to either antagonise him publicly or pander to him Even in her Congress-bashing bouts she made sure her criticism neither resembled Modi’s nor made any space for similar accusations being lobbed at the party by BJP On the other hand she virulently criticised the Congress dramatically prophesying its doom in rallies and TV interviews Only in one TV interview she suggested that Jayalalithaa would make for a great PM making her sound as if she was on a completely different political orbit However what did she effectively do with this stance Firstly she rode the anti-Congress wave effectively Secondly even in her Congress bashing she didn’t valorise the BJP and hence distance herself from the strong minority vote-bank in the state She traced every Congress failing to its rampant corruption – an issue topping all political discussions in the country However she constantly drew attention to her own state government as an example of dealing with not only an economically turbulent state but also one fraught with unrest Thirdly in spirit she seemed to keep herself at an arm’s length from the bigger stronger political narratives of the Congress and the BJP thereby putting a lid on the emerging Aam Aadmi Party’s aspirations of making quick inroads into West Bengal with a similar political ideology Hence as the CSDS survey shows not only does the TMC have 43 percent of vote share in rural Bengal it has a whopping 54 percent vote share in urban Bengal The Left has just 21 percent votes from urban Bengal the remaining shared by all other parties However despite what seems like resounding applause for Mamata Banerjee’s government in Bengal the poll shows that Bengal’s voters might not be too keen on seeing her as the country’s Prime Minister Though the BJP’s vote share is a meagre 12 percent in March 2014 (down by 2 percent from January’s 2014) 15 percent of the state’s respondents prefer Narendra Modi as the country’s PM While votes in favour of Modi have also dropped by 3 percent since January Banerjee seems to have the endorsement of just 12 percent of the respondents as the country’s Prime Minister Now what could be the reason for this near schizophrenic voting pattern in West Bengal where TMC scores on all counts but Banerjee falls short of Modi in the PM race The results of another two other numbers might hold the answer Forty percent of Bengal’s respondents failed to decide if UPA deserves a chance at the Centre for the second time Twenty eight percent said that they wanted UPA back and 32 percent said no Now most opinion polls across India have suggested that a whopping majority of voters want the UPA out so what might account for Bengal’s confusion Another survey suggests that Bengal’s voters seem to be less concerned about the fate of the government at the Centre something that is reflected in the findings Asked what will be an important criteria while voting in the Lok Sabha polls 40 percent of the respondents said that the state government’s performance will be of prime importance The Central government or the UPA’s performance comes as a distant second with just 19 percent of the people concerned about it So who and for what will people be voting in West Bengal Not Narendra Modi not to throw Congress out of power but to make sure that their own state continues to be reassuringly in the hands of the person they handed it over to The national elections for the average Bengal voter is just a trust vote for the local Trinamool government Also the same concern possibly makes them not want to vote Mamata Banerjee as PM It won’t be too misplaced to say that Banerjee has been the nucleus of both the Trinamool Congress and the West Bengal government She is the face of both – unfortunately also the only face of any consequence in both There is not much of a great public faith in either Trinamool as a party rf its other parliamentarians except for a deep belief in Banerjee’s seemingly incorruptible personality If Banerjee lets the reins of Bengal loose the state’s voters know that the state will descend into the same kind of chaos that was the hallmark of Left rule in Bengal From his pigeon hole the Bengal voter sees the Writers’ Buildings not 7 Race Course Road in Delhi So it might be Modi or Rahul at the Centre as long as there’s Banerjee in the state Bengal has few reasons to worry Written by Pramathesh Ambasta | Updated: October 16 2014 8:12 am The reduction in the labour share means the potential employment available will be reduced Top News Moves to dilute labour-material ratio in MGNREGA and focus exclusively on select backward blocks will adversely impact rural poor Before the general elections free-market fundamentalists had lobbied fiercely to reshape so-called wasteful social-sector expenditures Primary among their targets was the Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) which according to them should become an unconditional cash transfer scheme Post-elections the late Gopinath Munde’s espousal of the MGNREGA went some way to allay apprehensions of a fundamental rejig but unfortunately he passed away soon after In June the chief minister of Rajasthan wanted the MGNREGA changed into a scheme Her proposal was categorically rejected by the Union minister for rural development Nitin Gadkari However more recently there have been proposals that are cause for immense concern Among these is a dilution of the labour-material ratio to 51:49 as against 60:40 mandated in the act Another official communiquè from the ministry capped budgetary allocations under the MGNREGA to states so as to exclusively focus on 2500 most backward blocks Both moves are inimical to the interests of the rural Adivasi poor and should be rolled back The decision to focus on 2500 most backward blocks was taken to proactively target the most precarious geographies In such blocks a dedicated multi-disciplinary team of professionals is to be placed at custers of about 15 panchayats to mobilise work demand plan and implement works This cluster facilitation team (CFT) will plug the critical gap in the effective delivery of the MGNREGA — human resources The selection of 2500 blocks is on the basis of backwardness criteria and is a welcome move to build capacities of gram panchayats which had been identified as a major bottleneck in the efficacy of the MGNREGA The CFT has the merit of moving away from a target-driven top-down approach to a bottom-up demand-driven strategy However to restrict financial allocations to states in the guise of such focus is to violate the act Those in need of work may exist anywhere in rural India and should get work on demand which is the differentia specifica of the MGNREGA It also negates the principle of federalism It is also puzzling that there seems to be a move to increase the material component when material costs have not been more than 27 per cent on average since 2011-12 More the reduction in labour share means that at current spending levels potential employment available will be reduced by several crore person-days Or to maintain employment at the current low levels the ministry will need to allocate more money Estimates cited in reports peg this additional amount at around Rs 8000 crore We know that the demand for work expressed in the MGNREGA official data is a gross under-representation of actual demand Thus if employment demand were to increase greater increases in overall expenditure would be necessitated with a higher material ratio Given that the government is trying to lower the fiscal burden this is inexplicable and indefensible An increase in the material component will also mean an entry of contractors and machinery bringing corruption of a very high magnitude The MGNREGA is a major step to strengthen grassroots democracy by giving unprecedented decision-making power to gram sabhas and panchayats The proposal to lower the labour to material ratio stems partly from an ignorance of the MGNREGA’s many achievements and from ideological blinkers chiefly the notion that earthen work under the scheme is kutcha (temporary) and unskilled or worse de-skilling This itself leads to misconceptions that the scheme just provides doles rather than sustainably pulling the poor out of poverty Ergo a higher material intensity will allow for the creation of real assets that are “permanent” This view shows deep ignorance of the tradition of earthen water-harvesting — the johads and talabs of Rajasthan the ahars and pokhars of eastern India the keres of Karnataka or the zabo or cheo-ozihi of Nagaland which have helped combat drought provide irrigation and contain flood damage in India for centuries As the experience of watershed development demonstrates earthen water-harvesting and soil conservation require detailed planning and high execution skills Most rural especially tribal migrant families own land and are “landed labourers” that is small and marginal farmers forced to migrate because of unproductive land holdings Leveraging the MGNREGA on a watershed approach such farmers can and have been turned around to become productive contributors to growth Let us look at some examples: 43 of the153 households in Kathdungri village in Muribahal block of Bolangir district a distress-migration hotspot of western Odisha were migrants in 2011 Village wage-seeker organisations civil society PRIs and the administration planned and executed earthen water-harvesting structures and ensured wages were paid on time No one migrates from Kathdungri now Farmers cultivate their hitherto uncultivable land and earn higher incomes Several Adivasi farmers in Madhya Pradesh returned to their village after a decade to till their land once an earthen dam under the MGNREGA began irrigating their fields Dugout farm ponds or hapas constructed in Bankura district of West Bengal and Raigarh district of Chhattisgarh have helped small farmers intensify crop cultivation and increase farm incomes Independent studies have concluded that despite the inevitable lacunae the MGNREGA has managed to reach benefits to the neediest and has targeted itself quite well It has proved to be a boon to women workers who get fair wages work near their homes and are spared the ignominy of contractor-driven work in towns In his letter to the Rajasthan CM Gadkari strongly defended the MGNREGA: “the act functions to fulfil the dual objectives of creating employment for the unskilled workers thereby addressing the issue of under-employment in the lean agricultural season; and that of creating productive assets…” He further argued that skill development is a key national objective but since there is already a programme for it “we may not need to use the funds under [the] MGNREGA” for it The road forward for the government is simple provided it has clarity of vision and commitment It needs to acknowledge that the MGNREGA represents the beginning of the coming of age of governance as an idea and the imperative of state delivery as a foundation of development efforts It then needs to get down to reforming central aspects of the MGNREGA’s implementation This entails ensuring there are sufficient human resources to carry out planning implementation and monitoring Investing in such human resources and ironing out bureaucratic hurdles is are the“reforms” rural India needs The writer is convenor
