And just like in the first round of elections in February, James Alvarado became the first Tico to vote after casting his ballot in Sydney, Australia.Only for the second time ever, Costa Ricans are voting from abroad — and the first time was just a couple months ago. The turnout was low for the first round of elections (with officials even blaming the Super Bowl for the weak numbers), and this time around the figures probably will be even more paltry. Still, many Ticos from around the globe are making the trek to their local consulate or embassy.Some 12,600 Costa Ricans are enfranchised to vote in 51 consulates in 40 countries, according to La Nación. Alvarado is one of 193 Costa Ricans residing in Australia. But the 32-year-old who has lived in Australia for nine years arrived at the polling station at 6 a.m. — three hours before it opened — so he could be the first to cast his vote.  Many of the Ticos abroad have shared images of the voting process (Noticias Monumental and LejiTICOS have done a good job keeping track of absentee voters on Twitter feeds).Here are all the countries we’ve seen photos or videos from so far:Australia (Sydney)center_img Karim Vega nos comparte esta foto desde Oslo, Noruega.

UN Security Council demanding aid access in Syria

first_img 4 ways to protect your company from cyber breaches UNITED NATIONS (AP) – The president of the U.N. Security Council said Monday that many members are pressing to follow up on last week’s resolution to eliminate Syria’s chemical weapons with a demand that the government allow immediate access for desperately needed humanitarian aid.Australian Ambassador and council president Gary Quinlan said a draft Security Council statement calls for delivering access in “the most effective ways, including across conflict lines and, where appropriate, across borders from neighboring countries …” if necessary to bypass meddling from President Bashar Assad’s regime in Damascus. Comments   Share   Top Stories The Security Council had been effectively deadlocked on the Syria crisis for more than two years until it unanimously adopted a resolution Friday endorsing a U.S.-Russian plan to secure and destroy Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile.Russia and China had cast vetoes three times in the past to block council action on Syria.But with Syria facing a U.S. threat of military action in retaliation for a chemical weapons attack on Aug. 21 that killed hundreds of civilians in a Damascus suburb, Russia relented and let the anti-chemical weapons resolution pass — with a key loophole. It called for consequences if Syria does not cooperate, but adopting sanctions or enforcement action would require the council to pass another sanction resolution, which Russia could then veto.Russian Ambassador Vitaly Churkin told The Associated Press that Russia approved of the draft statement on humanitarian aid as well.The statement would call for demilitarizing hospitals, schools and residential neighborhoods. It would condemn “increased terrorist attacks resulting in numerous casualties and destruction carried out by organizations and individuals associated with al-Qaida.”It will also condemn “the widespread violations of human rights and international humanitarian law by the Syrian authorities, as well as any human rights abuses and violations of international humanitarian law by armed groups.” Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober The vital role family plays in society Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement It stresses “the need to end impunity for violations of international humanitarian law and violations and abuses of human rights, and reaffirms that those who have committed or are otherwise responsible for such violations and abuses in Syria must be brought to justice.”Quinlan said they decided to opt for quick passage of a non-binding statement to capitalize on the council’s new-found unity on Syria, rather than risk getting bogged down in prolonged negotiations for an enforceable resolution.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Iceland’s success Much has been written about that too The building of extensive all-weather stadiums and infrastructure the army of coaches that doesn’t allow any juvenile footballing talent to go ungroomed a sports association firmly invested in its people We’ve heard all that It’s not about what we knew or what we had read or what we had heard It’s what we saw Having had their hearts broken by Hungary’s late equaliser Iceland took it deep into injury time to get its own slice of late late late good fortune Young Arnor Traustason goal wasn’t an equaliser however It was a winner It brought Iceland its first victory in a major competition For the record Iceland is the only unbeaten team in the history of the European Championships Not a record Iceland will be able to sustain for very long – this won’t be their last tournament They will not last very long in international football with only spirit with their hard-running frantic defensive counter-attacking football They will have to evolve They will evolve But now is not the time to say all that Now is the time to marvel to wonder to dream To redefine what is possible For example it was finally possible for Portugal to go through placed third behind Iceland Superstar-cum-sulk-artist Cristiano Ronaldo might have scored two goals to draw Portugal’s game against Hungary but the man – his social media followers outnumber Iceland’s population several times over – will not live down his comments about Iceland’s “small mentality” Opposing fans have booed him and chanted Lionel Messi’s name from the stands in the past Don’t be surprised if they use Iceland’s name The long records of Ronaldo’s numerous outstanding exploits will bear a Norse footnote Iceland’s first goal in the 18th came in a manner that did not surprise anybody who knew this team even marginally Captain Aron Gunnarson’s trademark long long throw-ins are a set-piece in Icelandic tactics which is why centre-back Kari Arnason was hanging around Austria’s box His gentle tap fell kindly to Jon Bodvarsson who produced a fine first touch and then beat the Austrian ’keeper with a clean low right-footed drive into the bottom left corner After that there was a touch of a siege mentality–Austria launched a siege Iceland were besieged The fine stuff was over the vikings were going to take over There was pulling and pushing and the kind of desperate stuff that would have looked ugly if it weren’t being deployed by a football team sent in by an island-nation of 330000 people The neutrals were not watching this game for the fine touches or subtle movement There was but one question: Can this miracle continue Will it continue That the referee awarded a penalty was no surprise even if David Alaba made Ari Skulason’s wayward tug look like a full-on viking assault That Austria gave it to Aleksandar Dragovic was surprising His missing the penalty was not a shocker not in this tournament Ragnar Sigurdsson is the building block of Iceland’s defence but the outstanding performance on Wednesday was his partner Arnason’s It looked unlikely that Iceland would hold on to their lead for they don’t know how to keep possession The ball in all fairness doesn’t yet like Icelandic feet; it doesn’t stay there for too long The viking spirit does not provide the composure and counter-intuitive thinking in tight situations Defending constantly is much more physically exhausting than keeping the ball Austria pressed hard in the second half With Marc Janko’s substitution they looked more incisive; Marko Arnautovic’s talents showed better when he had the game in front of him not when he was playing up front Alessandro Schopf’s 60th-minute equaliser resulted from the renewed impetus that the substitutes brought As the second half moved on Iceland’s players looked completely drained from all the chasing around All of them except Thor which is Birkir Bjarnason’s nickname The Norse gods seem to have blessed him with a spare lung Apart from playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson he’s the only other member of this team who shows footballing class The others are there because of spirit discipline and commitment Iceland’s substitutions were all defensive The fresh legs provided the late counter as Austria surged forward for a last-gasp winner Traustason and midfielder Elmar Bjanason are both promising young players It was their combination running across the field that broke Austrian hearts In the Round of 16 England will be a different proposition Yet England’s football system – geared towards ever greater profits in the world’s richest domestic league rather than towards grooming young talent – has a long history of disappointing in international games A large number of the EPL’s international followers might actually root for Iceland And the valkyries will be hovering watching over the game We will all watch eagerly for whom they choose Outstanding performances by Pullela Gopichand Badminton Academy batchmates Sameer Verma and B Sai Praneeth lit up the Syed Modi International Grand Prix Gold tournament bringing into focus the considerable strides made by a bunch of talented young shuttlers who eat drink sleep and play the game day in and day out at the national coach’s badminton centre in Gachibowli Hyderabad In a tournament robbed of much of its sheen by the absence of most of the top international stars India could take solace from the fact that the host nation bagged three of the five titles at stake – both the stellar singles and the mixed doubles PV Sindhu (Women singles) and Sameer Verma (Men’s singles) with their trophies PTI But while few eyebrows were raised at the triumphs of Sameer Verma and Pusarla Venkata Sindhu in the singles events the win notched by Pranaav Jerry Chopra and his left-handed partner N Sikki Reddy was worthy of much applause for the draw in the mixed event had been headed by the crack Danish pairing of Joachim Fischer Nielsen and Christina Pedersen The only crowns that escaped Indian clutches were the men’s and women’s doubles in which the Danish combinations of Boe-Mogensen and Pedersen-Rytter Juhl justified their respective top seedings although the former were troubled all the way to the final and actually came within two points of defeat at the hands of Indonesians Muhammad Ardianto and Fajar Alfian in the semi-final The Syed Modi International marked the passage of almost exactly two months since 22-year-old Sameer had reached the final of his first Super Series tournament the Hong Kong Open Along the way he had lowered the colours of the redoubtable Danish world No 2 Jan O Jorgensen before bowing to Ng Ka Long Angus in the final in three games An error-strewn performance had followed in the Macau Open GP Gold event a week later and had seen the reigning Indian national champion make a quick exit Coach Gopichand had stressed at the time that the vastly talented player younger of the two Verma brothers training at his academy needed to develop consistency It was therefore heartening to witness the grit and gumption that the eighth seeded Sameer revealed while lifting the men’s singles crown in the sadly devalued Lucknow tournament which is held every year to honour the memory of eight-time national champion Syed Modi who was foully murdered in April 1989 Sameer’s victim in the final was his regular practice partner and former national champion B Sai Praneeth who turned the form book upside down by accounting for another Academy colleague Kidambi Srikanth in a rip-roaring long-drawn semi-final at 21-17 in the decider Srikanth who has dropped from a career-high world ranking of No 3 to a present level of No 19 had been given the third seeding in the event behind Denmark’s 31-year-old Hans Kristian Vittinghus (No 14 on the BWF ladder) after the original top seed in the event had dropped out at the last moment In effect it meant that Srikanth was the second-best player in the tournament on paper at least while Vittinghus was expected to win the competition Neither of them went the distance Sameer who seems to thrive on Danish blood knocked Vittinghus out in the quarter-final by a comfortable 21-15 21-13 scoreline while Sai Praneeth outlasted Srikanth who still seems a mite short on physical fitness after recovering from a stress fracture of the foot The Sameer-Praneeth battle for the Syed Modi International crown was their fourth meeting and Praneeth had led their head-to-head by a 2-1 margin winning their last encounter in the 2015 Bangladesh Open The younger of the Verma brothers however showed that he is along with Prannoy one of the two most improved Indian male players in 2016 as he pipped Praneeth in the first game at 21-19 before running away with the second at 21-16 Mention must be made of the outstanding showing of wiry 20-year-old Mumbai left-hander Harsheel Dani who powered his way into the semi-final after two excellent victories over Premier Badminton League hero HS Prannoy (at 21-18 21-18) and Denmark’s Emil Holst (at 21-11 in the deciding game) He however failed to measure up to the speed and hustle of Sameer in the penultimate round and went out without a whimper For the top-seeded PV Sindhu who has been in raging hot form over the past six months since her silver-winning exploits at the Rio Olympics this tournament presented little challenge There were none of the top ten women in the fray – or for that matter those among the top 20 The highest ranked player in the competition behind Sindhu was World No 23 Beatriz Corrales a 24-year-old Spaniard who is world champion Carolina Marin’s occasional practice partner back home and who could not have been considered a threat to Sindhu in her current mood Even Saina Nehwal presently ranked one rung above Sindhu’s No 9 spot and who had comfortably beaten her former Gopichand Academy stable-mate in the final of the 2014 edition of this tournament chose to give the event a miss Saina recently recovered from knee surgery preferred to concentrate her energies on preparations for the All-England Super Series tournament scheduled for the first week of March Only a handful of upcoming Indonesians barred Sindhu’s path to the title – Fitriani Fitriani (18) ranked No 45 in the world Gregoria Mariska (17) who occupied the 108th berth in the BWF rankings the 44th ranked Hanna Ramadini (21) and the 51st ranked Dinar Dyah Ayustine (23) It was the baby of the Indonesian team Gregoria Mariska who marched confidently into the final leaving a trail of higher ranked players in her wake notable amongst whom were No 5 seed Ayustine No 3 seed Corrales (by an extremely impressive 21-9 21-11 scoreline) and No 6 seed Ramadini This brought her face-to-face with the rangy Sindhu who had the full measure of the No 4 seed Fitriani in the semi-final In their only earlier meeting at the Indonesian Masters in December 2015 Sindhu had edged Mariska in three games at 21-16 19-21 21-12 after losing the middle stanza despite holding a sizable lead in the closing stages of that game This time the Indian did not permit the upcoming 17-year-old Indonesian even the luxury of winning one game The 21-13 21-14 demolition was an accurate indicator of the huge gap that yawned between the two in terms of speed power range of strokes and temperament Mariska may be a player for the future – and there is no doubt that the land of Verawaty Wiharjo and Ivana Lie could do with a world-class woman player – but she has a long way to go before she can match Sindhu’s abilities Another thrilling round ended in Geneva on Sunday evening Although seven out of the nine games in Round 3 were drawn the players fought hard and even took gambles in their quest for victory The most tumultuous game of the round was the one between the Indian number two PHarikrishna and Shakhriyar Mamedyarov Screengrab of Indian grandmaster P Harikrishna and his Round 3 opponent Shakhriyar Mamedyarov after their drawn game It was a complicated game and Harikrishna wasn’t too disappointed about missed opportunities The Indian grandmaster had the white pieces for the second time in a row in round three Across him sat the man who has recently surpassed the 2800-Elo mark recently —a feat only eleven players have been able to achieve in the history of the game Harikrishna opened with the king’s pawn and steered the game into the placid waters of the Italian Opening yet again (he made a similar starting move against Michael Adams in the last round) After a slow build-up he was able to establish a strong influence in the center Mamedyarov tried to neutralise it by offering the trade of the light squared bishops But the Indian ace dictated the terms and tried to maintain his central influence by exchanging the bishops on the c4 square rather than on e6 which Mamedyarov was hoping for As the game progressed Mamedyarov in his attempt to put pressure on Harikrishna’s centre ended up with his knights in two corners of the board giving Harikrishna theadvantage Mamedyarov knew that if he didn’t act his opponent would show no mercy in steamrolling him The Azeri therefore tried complicating matters by sacrificing a pawn But this too backfired as Harikrishnaobliged to his invitation into the dense woods of variations and generated a strong attack on his king The Azeri grandmaster was in the dire straits by now and took desperate measures to save the game On the 27th move he offered a rook sacrifice which was nothing but a bluff to confuse Harikrishna Unfortunately the Indian grandmaster fell for it and failed to find the winning continuation It seemed he was unaware of this until the very end of the game when his opponent told him about it Even after Harikrishna failed to find the right continuation he had a slight edge in the position But Mamedyarov had been able to exchange a pair of rooks and stabilised his king position More importantly there was the worry of the ticking clock to deal with With Harikrishna having only a couple of minutes in handfor six moves the Azeri number one sought the opportunity to offer a draw which the former accepted The two games that ended decisively were Pavel Eljanov vs Ian Nepomniachtchi and Richard Rapport vs Dmitry Jakovenko In the first one Eljanov went for the Opocensky variation to counter his opponent’s Sicilian Najdorf The game soon got intenseas players castled on opposite wings At one point it looked like Nepomiachtchi would be the first to break through to his opponent’s king But the Ukrainian slyly deluded his opponent into going for a seemingly promising pawn break and stationed his bishop on the longest diagonal of the board From its post the bishop performed both offensive and defensive duties He then sacrificed an exchange to maintain this bishop and later advanced his queen’s pawn with decisive effect Jakovenko essayed the Nimzo-Indian Defence to counter Rapport’s queen-pawn advance on the first move In the middle-game Rapport seemed to have attacking prospects on the king side but the Russian grandmaster shut it down by exchanging his light-squared bishop for Rapport’s knight which could have been instrumental in orchestrating the attack The Hungarian youngster kept attacking but Jakovenko was able to defend successfully and exchange into an endgame with an extra pawn The game was still within the realms of a draw but Jakovenko coordinated his knight and rook brilliantly to catch Rapport’s king in a mating net “Yesterday I played the longest game and today I played the shortest I think that is fair” said Grischuk after his 13-move draw against Adams In the other games tournament leader Teimur Radjabov played enterprisingly against Levon Aronian throwing his kingside pawns forward in a Catalan Defence game The game took a sharp turn in its initial stages but eventually fizzled into a draw? some allegations against the Chandy
