OAS Is the war on drugs a failure

first_imgAntonio Scorza/AFP No related posts. ANTIGUA, Guatemala – Four decades after Washington launched its international “war on drugs” in Latin America (the U.S. no longer uses that term), members of the Organization of American States’ General Assembly are questioning the logic behind what is increasingly viewed in the region as a failed policy.In a General Assembly meeting that started Tuesday in the colonial town of Antigua, Guatemala, OAS members will begin to explore alternatives to a strategy focused on military and law enforcement intervention to fight the trafficking of illegal drugs, mostly from South America and destined for users in the United States.The 45th session of the OAS General Assembly began Tuesday night, drawing foreign ministers and three presidents from 34 countries throughout the region, including the U.S., represented by Secretary of State John Kerry and top-tier drug policy officials.This month’s session, which lasts through Thursday, will focus on finding alternative strategies to the drug war, which has had a devastating impact particularly on Mexico and northern Central America, which have become the most violent region in the world.“This is a long-awaited debate … to look for solutions to a phenomenon that affects us all, although not equally,” OAS Secretary General José Miguel Insulza said. “The most vulnerable are the ones who are paying the highest price in terms of violence.”Tens of thousands of Latin Americans have died in violence linked to drug trafficking in past decades. Yet as the U.S.-backed policy in the region focuses on law enforcement and cracking down on drug cartels, the cartels simply change strategies, adopt more sophisticated methods, alternate trafficking routes, open new markets and increase money laundering operations – despite large and frequent drug-seizure operations, captures and extraditions conducted by police agencies and governments.Toward legalization?Guatemalan President Otto Pérez Molina, who called for legalization of some illicit drugs to help curb the mounting violence in his country, is hosting the summit. Costa Rica’s Laura Chinchilla and the Dominican Republic’s Danilo Medina also will attend.The debate is centered on an OAS report commissioned during the 2012 Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia, which called for an analysis of alternative strategies to the drug war. The study outlined four possible strategies to confront drug trafficking: strengthening institutions and public security, decriminalizing illicit drugs, promoting more community-based programs and terminating cooperation between consuming and transit countries.The proposal to legalize at illicit drugs such as marijuana and cocaine is gaining momentum in the region. Marijuana already is legal in the U.S. states of Colorado and Washington. Other states have medical marijuana laws, in direct violation of U.S. federal law. And the South American country of Uruguay is close behind, as are Argentina and Brazil, which are considering decriminalizing personal use.center_img At least 14 Latin American countries support debating new anti-drug policies, including all of the countries of Central America, Uruguay, Colombia and Mexico, Guatemalan Foreign Minister Fernando Carrera said.Washington, in response, sent its big guns to this week’s summit in Guatemala. On his first official visit to Latin America, Kerry stood behind current U.S. anti-drug policy in the region, according to U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere Affairs Roberta Jacobson.“No international entity is going to dictate legalization, and certainly not to the United States,” Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs William Brownfield said. Brownfield and Jacobson were joined in the U.S. delegation by anti-drug czar Gil Kerlikowske.But for Carrera, the taboo of drug policy already has been broken: “it was thought that everything was outlined and the only thing left to do was blindly apply a paradigm,” he said.Monster with seven headsThe OAS report approaches the issue from a public health perspective instead of a public security one by focusing on prevention and treatment programs.According to the OAS, 45 percent of cocaine users worldwide, half of heroin users and 25 percent of marijuana users live in the Americas, the second most violent region behind Africa, with 16 homicides per 100,000 residents. That’s double the world average.The United Nations calculates that the illicit drug market generates $85 billion annually in cocaine sales – $35 billion of that in the U.S. Those figures alter economies, corrupt institutions and result in widespread violence, the U.N. stated.“An illegal economy that reaches billions of dollars and is operated by multinational criminal networks inevitably expands into illegal weapons sales, contraband, piracy, human trafficking, prostitution, kidnapping and extortion,” Insulza said.Civil society groups urged the OAS to place human rights at the center of the debate.“The national policies for drug control that allot criminal penalties for personal drug consumption is a fundamental violation of human rights,” a Human Rights Watch press release stated. The group urged governments to adopt policies of decriminalization for personal consumption.  Facebook Commentslast_img read more

USheadquartered AgroFresh NASDAQ AGFS has la

first_img U.S.-headquartered AgroFresh (NASDAQ: AGFS) has launched a new technology called Predictive Screening which it says can predict the risk of disorder development in produce.Predictive Screening analyses the gene expression of fruit at harvest, helping growers to make more informed storage decisions.The technology was launched last year as part of AgroFresh’s FreshCloud platform, which monitors produce quality through the supply chain and also includes Storage Insights and Transit Insights.”Knowing what is happening to your fruit while it is in storage is incredibly helpful and can save potentially millions of dollars, but wouldn’t it be nice to be able to know what is going to happen with that fruit before you even put it into storage?” said Adam Kinsey, IoT solutions global business lead at AgroFresh.Predictive Screening determines whether a particular harvest is low, moderate or high risk for the development of a specific disorder. This helps growers and packers to reduce losses in high risk fruits and provides added confidence that low risk fruits will meet quality standards.”So before you even take this fruit and place it into a room, we can analyze its genome and see whether that fruit has a predilection to potentially develop a disorder that may change how you choose to handle that fruit. That’s an incredibly powerful new product that we are excited about,” he said.He explained the technology could be used, for example, to see in advance whether Honeycrisp apples are likely to develop Soft Scald, which causes substantial losses.”Today our focus is exclusively on apples … but you can trust that it doesn’t end there. These innovations can be applied to many different products as well,” he said.Predictive Screening complements AgroFresh’s other freshness solution technologies Storage Insights and Transit Insights, which use proprietary sensor technology and analytics to provide visibility and data about the health of produce along the supply chain.By monitoring variables such as ambient temperature, pulp temperature, and relative humidity, the company can provide the owner with information of individual pallets before they reach their final destination.”We want to give insights to allow all of the players in the supply chain to optimize their decisions,” Kinsey said.He added that the industry has known for a long time about the problems related to ensuring freshness along the supply chain, but until recently it has been very hard to solve them.”They want a solution – no one wants to experience rejections. The challenge has been that the technology has not existed to make it feasible to solve them,” he said.”20 years ago we had millions of pallets in motion and in order to manage them properly, we needed to be able to receive data from each pallet, which was not possible. Now there are answers to that problem, there is a whole selection of technology that’s available to make that possible.” January 02 , 2019 You might also be interested incenter_img AgroFresh and Zest Labs partner on sales solutions …last_img read more

first_img FILE – In this May 22, 2018 file photo, Culinary Union members exit a university arena after voting on whether to authorize a strike in Las Vegas. There appears to be a tentative labor agreement that would cover about a quarter of the 50,000 hotel and casino workers that are threatening to strike in Las Vegas. The Culinary Workers Union Local 226 said in a tweet Friday, June 1 that the new five-year deal covers about 12,000 workers at nine casino resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. (AP Photo/Isaac Brekken, File) Las Vegas union: Tentative labour deal struck with Caesars by Regina Garcia Cano, The Associated Press Posted Jun 1, 2018 7:22 am PDT Last Updated Jun 1, 2018 at 10:40 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emailcenter_img LAS VEGAS, Nev. – Negotiators have reached a tentative labour agreement that would cover about a quarter of the 50,000 hotel and casino workers who are threatening to strike in Las Vegas.The Culinary Workers Union Local 226 on Friday said the new five-year deal with Caesars Entertainment covers about 12,000 workers at nine casino resorts on the Las Vegas Strip. Tens of thousands of bartenders, housekeepers, bellmen and other unionized workers at 34 casino-hotels on the Strip and in downtown Las Vegas have sought new, five-year contracts for months.The current contracts expired at midnight.Ninety-nine per cent of about 25,000 workers voted last week to authorize a strike at any time starting Friday. No date has been set, but workers have started signing up for strike pay, financial assistance and picketing shifts.Wages, workplace training and job security have been the main sticking points in negotiations.Caesars’ properties covered by the tentative agreement are Bally’s, Flamingo, Harrah’s, Paris, Planet Hollywood, The Cromwell, The Linq and Caesars Palace, including Nobu.Here’s a look at the negotiations and a possible strike:TO STRIKE OR NOT TO STRIKEThe Culinary Union and companies that would be affected if workers walk off the job have held bargaining sessions since February. Casino-hotels that could still see a strike, if the deal between workers and Caesars sticks, include Aria, Bellagio, Tropicana, Stratosphere and Golden Nugget.Analysts with Deutsche Bank put the likelihood of a citywide strike “as low” and said they believe negotiations could continue.“Recall, in 2013, the Culinary Union remained in negotiations with some Strip operators for several months post the June 2013 contract expiration,” analysts with the bank noted this week. “Business during this time was uninterrupted.”The last citywide strike was in 1984, costing the city and workers millions of dollars.ROOMS, KITCHENS AND LUGGAGECasino-hotels would lose unionized bartenders, housekeepers, cocktail and food servers, porters, bellmen, cooks and other kitchen workers in the event of a strike.MGM Resorts International and Caesars Entertainment operate more than half the properties that have been negotiating contracts. Both companies have declined to provide details of their contingency plans.The union and hospitality experts have said the companies would use replacement workers and try to bring some in from properties outside Las Vegas.Properties that would not be affected include Wynn Las Vegas, Encore, The Venetian and Palazzo.The strike could come as fans head to the tourist destination for the Stanley Cup Final. The union for professional hockey players in the National Hockey League sent a letter to the Culinary Union on Wednesday expressing its support for the casino workers’ “attempts to reach a fair and equitable agreement.”“It is hoped that an accommodation can promptly be reached that will enable you to continue to provide the high level of service and professionalism that you have long exhibited,” National Hockey League Players’ Association executive director Donald Fehr wrote.WAGESThe average hourly wage of Las Vegas Strip workers is $23, including benefits such as premium-free health care, a pension and a 401(k) retirement savings plan, and $20,000 down-payment assistance for first-time homebuyers.The union says it has asked MGM for average annual wage increases of 4 per cent for each of the next five years. It says the company has countered with an approximate 2.7 per cent raise.Caesars workers have asked for an increase of 4.2 per cent effective Friday, and annual increases of about 4 per cent thereafter. The union previously said the company had offered an approximate 2.8 per cent increase for each of the five years.“The companies are making millions and millions of dollars, they are growing and that’s excellent,” Geoconda Arguello-Kline, union secretary-treasurer and a former housekeeper, said earlier this week. “We want them to share with the workers their success.”Neither the union nor Caesars on Friday immediately provided details of their tentative agreement.OTHER DISPUTESThe union said it is asking for training on new skills and job opportunities as the companies adopt technology that can displace employees. It also wants contract language that would protect workers if properties are sold.The labour organization, the largest in Nevada, also has proposed to MGM and Caesars an independent study paid jointly with the union to analyze the workload of housekeepers.The union has argued that hotel rooms have changed significantly, with new furniture and other amenities, since 2002, when the last workload study was conducted.“I wouldn’t be here today had not everybody gone out on strike in 1984 for those health benefits because I came down with a terminal illness,” said Deborah Jeffries, a cocktail server. “It was very important to me that I had that, and it was well worth the walk for two and half months.“We are ready and willing to do this again, not that we want it, but if need be, we will do it,” she said.___Follow Regina Garcia Cano on Twitter at https://twitter.com/reginagarciakNOlast_img read more

win the men’s double trap event on Wednesday becoming the first athlete competing under the Olympic flag to ever win a gold medal But the 49-year-old six-time Olympian said he was sad he could not win

bronze medal went to Steven Scott who defeated fellow Briton Tim Kneale with a perfect score of 30 Clad entirely in black Aldeehani pounded his fist on his chest a gesture he said was to show the Kuwaiti people that “we are here and got the medal” “I can’t describe my feeling on the podium” he said of the moment he watched the Olympic flag hoisted up the pole “I am winning the gold medal the biggest achievement of the Games without raising my country’s flag It really hurts me I can hardly stop my crying” The IOC suspended Kuwait in October 2015 accusing the government of interference in

also a little bit of luck” said Innocenti whose family runs an armoury business back home Scott said he was more relaxed competing for bronze against his countryman Kneale “I didn’t want to rub it
