Operation Martillo: USS Nicholas seizes more than 4 tons of drugs

first_img MAYPORT, Fla. — Oliver Hazard Perry-class guided missile frigate USS Nicholas (FFG 47) delivered more than four tons of cocaine and marijuana to Naval Station Mayport in Florida, seized from drug interdictions conducted in support of Operation Martillo on July 17. Crew members offloaded approximately 3,408 kilograms (7,513 pounds) of cocaine, and 109 kilograms (240 pounds) of marijuana, with an estimated wholesale value of more than US$93 million. The amount of cocaine seized was enough for 7.2 million doses, each dose approximately the same size as a sugar packet. USS Nicholas is returning to port after a 175-day deployment supporting counter illicit trafficking operations aimed at disrupting transnational organized crime and keeping drugs off the streets. With the help of some partners in the region we accomplished what we set out to do: disrupt the drug trade,” said Cmdr. Stephen Fuller, USS Nicholas commanding officer. “Interdictions are challenging, but with the help of other naval units, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and the partner nation navies, we executed a successful deployment.” During the deployment, Nicholas — with embarked U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) Law Enforcement Detachment (LEDET) — conducted a combination of six disruptions and interdictions while in the Caribbean Sea, and the Atlantic and Pacific coastal waters of South and Central America.

first_img After his return to Brazil, he remained in the 1st Fighter Aviation Regiment, on the Santa Cruz Air Force Base. Later, he studied aeronautical engineering and served as Director of Engineering at the Material Directorate and the Routes Directorate. While living in Canada, he was part of the International Civil Aviation Organization, in the city of Montreal. By Dialogo September 18, 2013 The Brazilian Air Force (FAB) and the Brazilian Expeditionary Force (FEB) registered in Brazil’s military history pages of glory and heroism that make us proud and are valued by the allied countries in the Second World War conflict. Brig. MIRANDA CORRÊA will be remembered as an example of courage, professional virtue, an aeronautical vocation motivator, and love to the Homeland that watch his birth. By the way, Brazil was the only country which offered soldiers to the Great War without being intimidated or invited. It only requested, in retribution, a piece of land in Pistoia, Italy, to bury his dead. Today, the Pistoia cemetery is symbolic and the remains of our soldiers rest at the FEB Monument at Rio de Janeiro city.Ney de Araripe Sucupira – Honorary Member of the Brazilian Air Force – São Paulo Lieutenant General José Carlos de Miranda Corrêa died on September 15, in Rio de Janeiro.

Before he fought in Italy, then Lieutenant Miranda Corrêa performed his training as a Combat Pilot in the United States and Panama. Some of the awards he was honored with throughout his career include the Aviation Cross – A Ribbon, the Italy Campaign, the Atlantic South Campaign, the Order of Air Merit, the Santos Dumont Order of Merit, a Distinguished Flying Cross (for sinking a German ship on the coast of Rio de Janeiro), a Presidential Unit Citation, and a Bronze Star, with the latter three having been awarded by the U.S. government. last_img read more

Bolivia Releases Results of 10-Year Fight Against Narcotrafficking

first_imgBy Erick Foronda July 17, 2019 The Bolivian combined counternarcotics force destroyed a total of 35,878 cocaine labs and 321 tons of the drug in 116,440 operations carried out in the last 10 years, the Bolivian government reported. Bolivian Vice Minister of Social Defense and Controlled Substances, Felipe Cáceres, delivered the report on May 26, in which the government offensives are estimated to have dealt a blow to narcotrafficking worth about $176 million.According to the report — the most thorough Bolivia has issued so far — the Bolivian Police’s Special Counternarcotics Force conducts daily operations with military units that provide logistics support, for example, in the handling of helicopters, small planes, boats, as well as in land transport. “This is a joint effort,” Cáceres said.According to former anti-drug czar and subject matter expert Ernesto Justiniano, who was also vice minister of Social Defense between 2002 and 2003, narcotrafficking is growing exponentially in Bolivia, and the government “is hiding information.”“I doubt any figure the government provides,” Justiniano told Diálogo. “I think they’re handling the situation from a political point of view, not a technical one, and there’s no one who can confirm the data.”According to an August 2018 report from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), coca crops in Bolivia increased 6 percent between 2016 and 2017, from 23,100 to 24,500 hectares. In its 2019 International Narcotics Control Strategy Report, the U.S. Department of State estimated the total coca cultivation to be 31,000 hectares.Both figures exceed the legal limits established by the Bolivian government. In March, 2017, Morales signed a law increasing the legal surface area of coca crops from 12,000 to 22,000 hectares.According to the UNODC report, up to 48 percent of the coca harvested in 2017 was used illegally. The Department of State report estimates that Bolivia produced about 249 tons of cocaine in 2017.In September 2018, the U.S. government designated Bolivia and Venezuela as countries that failed demonstrably to meet their obligations under international counter-drug agreements in the last 12 months. Bolivia’s designation was in part based on its lack of justification for the increase in coca production authorized under the new law.The UNODC report also states that almost 91 percent of coca crops in Chapare, Cochabamba department, is sold illegally. Bolivian President Evo Morales has been leading coca production unions in Chapare, a region with 931 trade unions and about 50,000 affiliates, for more than 30 years.“What happened is that they let the mice care for the cheese,” Justiniano said.Cáceres introduced the report to the European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development. All activities, he said, received support from the Regional Center of Counternarcotics Intelligence, based in Bolivia, with counts on the participation of neighboring countries, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Peru.The minister added that the government assigns an annual average of $50 million to fight narcotrafficking, and assigned $430 million to this endeavor in the last decade. Bolivia expelled the Drug Enforcement Administration from the country in 2008, and rejected any counternarcotics help from the U.S. government.“It may be difficult to have zero narcotrafficking, but we have zero tolerance for narcotrafficking. It’s a mission,” Morales told the press in early June.last_img read more

Your brand must stimulate the five senses

first_imgBrands are not just brochures and logos. They are feelings. They connect with consumers on an emotional level. Those emotions are very much tied to and often triggered by our senses – sight, smell, sound, taste and touch.Think about one of your favorite memories. Is there a certain scent or sound you associate with it? Does that memory pop up when you taste a certain food or see something special like a painting? Those are the same kind of sensory experiences you want consumers to have when they experience your brand.That’s not always easy in financial services, because we are not selling tangible goods. But there are other ways to tap into those senses. Umpqua Bank allows some of its business partners to display their goods in its branches. In San Francisco, one of its partners puts out chocolates. A credit union in the southern part of the country pays someone to spend 20 hours a week baking at one of its branches so consumers smell baked goods when they conduct their financial business.Our sense of smell is actually the most sensitive of the five senses, which means scent can have a powerful effect on consumer behavior. The human nose can distinguish more than 10,000 different odors, and studies have shown that 75% of emotions are triggered by smell. Scent is such a big deal in business that companies pay a lot of money for scent marketing. They brand their own scent. continue reading » 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
