View post tag: Guard VIDEO: US Coast Guard Rescues Person from Sailing Vessel View post tag: Person View post tag: Video View post tag: Sailing View post tag: rescues The U.S Coast Guard rescued a person aboard a sailing vessel taking on water approximately 75 miles southwest off Monterey, Thursday morning.At 6:26 a.m., Coast Guard Sector San Francisco Command Center watchstanders received a distress call from the master of the 31-foot sailing vessel Apster. Due to an inaudible radio transmission, communications was lost.Watchstanders were able to determine the general direction from shore the vessel master had called and launched rescue crews from Coast Guard Air Station San Francisco and the Coast Guard Cutter Sockeye.The Coast Guard issued an Urgent Marine Information Broadcast for all vessels in the vicinity to be on the lookout for Apster. The commercial ship Medi Venezia established communications with Apster and reported there was a person aboard a distressed vessel taking on water. Shortly thereafter, the towing vessel Vision diverted from towing a barge around 20 nautical miles away to assist.The master of Apster was able to slow the flooding and stabilize the vessel.Once a Coast Guard helicopter crew arrived on scene and quickly assessed the situation, the crew determined to hoist the master aboard the helicopter. He was transported to Monterey Municipal Airport where emergency medical services were waiting to take him to County Hospital of Monterey Peninsula for further medical evaluation.“The mariner’s actions had the biggest impact on the success of the case,” said Lt. William Burtt, Air Station San Francisco aircraft commander. “He went out to sea properly equipped with survival and communication equipment. He recognized the severity of his situation and called the Coast Guard early enough to allow our crew to hoist him before conditions deteriorated. The crew and mariners all worked well as a team in the challenging weather conditions.”“I want to thank the vessels Vision and Medi Venezia for their assistance this morning,” said Capt. Greg Stump, commander, Sector San Francisco. “Their willingness to help epitomizes the professionalism of our commercial maritime community and assisted in giving a gift no greater than a life saved.”Press Release View post tag: News by topic View post tag: from View post tag: coast December 29, 2014 View post tag: vessel View post tag: US Back to overview,Home naval-today VIDEO: US Coast Guard Rescues Person from Sailing Vessel Share this article

Senator Shumlin today announced the development of a state of the art health care billing system. The system will include health care insurance cards, a health care payment card and an established network where providers and payers can connect via a central hub. This new structure will fix our broken and confusing collections system byimproving efficiency and saving Vermonters money. We have the opportunity to lead the nation by becoming the first state to implement an efficient and effective health care billing system, said Senator Peter Shumlin. Vermont has led the nation in health care reform and can continue to lead with the implementation of a health care billing system that will save Vermonters hundreds of millions of dollars.Twenty cents of every dollar spent on health care is directed toward health care s inefficient billing system. The implementation of this state of the art system has the potential to save Vermonters $300 million. It is my goal to leave this session with a plan to move Vermont toward a system where every Vermonter has a healthcare card and access to a more affordable health care system, said Senator Shumlin.Such a system is reliant on a state of the art technology infrastructure and the development of this system will better position Vermont to take advantage of the federal stimulus grants for broadband. The Senate Appropriations and Health and Welfare committees will hear testimony on the development of this health care billing system this afternoon.Source: Office of the President Pro Tem
By Dialogo July 02, 2013 Fugitive Sinaloa Cartel leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán recently suffered a blow to his transnational criminal operation when authorities in Guatemala seized Samuel Escobar, a key alleged operative for the organized crime group. On May 20, Guatemalan National Civil Police captured Samuel Escobar, 20, in the department of San Marcos, near the Pacific coast. The region contains many drug smuggling routes used by El Chapo’s forces. Security forces confiscated a gun, jewelry, assault rifle cartridges and $128,000 in cash from Escobar, according to Guatemala Interior Minister Mauricio López Bonilla. Escobar was part of an organized crime gang allied with El Chapo, López said, noting that in the days before Escobar was captured, he and other gang members apparently knew that security forces were after them. “In a phone call they warned us to stop or they would start killing police officers,” López told reporters. That was a sign that the Escobar was allied with the Sinaloa cartel, which has kidnapped and killed dozens of police officers in Mexico. A group of heavily armed gang members did kidnap a Guatemalan police officer, but he was able to escape, authorities said. A broad security operation The arrest of Escobar was part of a mission to find gang members who were living in the municipality of Malacatán, near the Mexican border, López said. In addition to Escobar, National Civil Police also detained Deisy Villagran, 57, who allegedly had firearms, drugs and a money-counting machine inside her house. National Civil Police also arrested 44-year-old Juventino Encarnación García, an alleged drug trafficker who is suspected of collaborating with El Chapo. Security forces in Mexico have scored a number of victories against El Chapo in recent months. For example, on April 30, agents with the Federal Police in Sonora captured El Chapo’s father-in-law, Inés Coronel Barrera. Coronel is charged with trafficking large amounts of cocaine for the Sinaloa cartel. Federal Police also captured El Chapo’s brother-in-law, Inés Omar Coronel, 25, and three other alleged Sinaloa cartel operatives. The agents also seized more than 500 pounds of marijuana and four military assault rifles. Inés Coronel is the father of El Chapo’s fourth wife, former beauty queen Emma Coronel Aispuro, 23. She reportedly married El Chapo when she was 18. The Sinaloa and Los Zetas cartels are waging a violent battle for control of drug trafficking routes in Guatemala. Two of the three major routes in that country are controlled by Los Zetas, and the other is controlled by El Chapo, according to Guatemalan President Otto Pérez Molina. Mexican drug cartels operate in Central America El Chapo’s forces and Los Zetas are active in Guatemala and other parts of Central America, said Alejandro Hope, a security analyst with the Mexican Institute for Competitiveness. Both organized crime groups have formed alliances with local gangs in Guatemala and other Central American countries. “I doubt that their operatives [in Central America] are dominant players, but they are there and they will fight to secure their routes,” Hope said. The Sinaloa cartel has been operating in Guatemala for at least 10 years, while Los Zetas showed up in 2007. At the time, Los Zetas was the armed wing of the Gulf cartel (CDG). Los Zetas broke away from the CDG in 2010 and became its own transnational criminal organization. In October 2012, Mexican Marines killed longtime Los Zetas kingpin Heriberto Lazcano Lazcano in Progreso, Coahuila. He was known as “The Executioner,” “El Lazca,” and “Z-3.” Miguel Angel Trevino Morales took The Executioner’s place as leader of Los Zetas. He is known as “Commander 40,” “40,” and “Z-40.” In February 2013, Guatemalan authorities announced that “El Chapo” himself had been killed in the Petén jungle. A man who resembled El Chapo had been killed during a confrontation with security forces, officials said. The report turned out to be inaccurate. Security forces capture El Chapo operatives Mexico and the United States are cooperating in the battle against transnational criminal organizations, primarily by sharing information. Mexico and Guatemala, and Guatemala and the United States are also cooperating to combat organized crime. In recent years, security forces in Guatemala have confiscated large amounts of drugs which belonged to El Chapo, and have captured several of his operatives: • In June 2012, Guatemalan National Civil Police captured Walter Arelio Montejo Merida, an alleged Sinaloa cartel operative who is known as “Zope.” In March 2013, Zope was extradited to the United States, where he faces federal drug trafficking charges. • In December 2011, the National Civil Police seized 500 kilograms of methamphetamines at an illegal lab in the department of San Marcos. The lab was run by El Chapo’s operatives, authorities said. • In January 2011, the Guatemalan Army arrested five armed men who were in possession of 65 barrels of acetone, which is needed to make methamphetamines. The men were suspected of working for El Chapo. Shortly after taking office on Jan. 14, 2012, Perez Molina said that his administration would attempt to verify intelligence reports that El Chapo, the billionaire fugitive leader of the Sinaloa cartel, was back in Guatemala. Perez Molina, a former army general, captured El Chapo in 1993. Guatemala handed him over to the Mexican government. El Chapo escaped from a high-security prison in January 2001. Beginning in 2010, Guatemalan security forces have received periodic reports that El Chapo was in their country. But El Chapo is unlikely to go to Guatemala anytime soon, “for any reason at all,” said Malcolm Beith, author of “The Last Narco,” a book about El Chapo. Man. They catch him and the Mexicans who think they’re so smart let him get away, or maybe they let him go intentionally.
Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Sentences have been handed down to the last of four Romanian immigrants who admitted to their roles in a card-skimming scheme that targeted Long Island Rail Road ticket machines last year.Nassau County Judge Christopher Quinn sentenced Dorin Husa, 38, and 46-year-old Niculae Petre to a year in jail on Thursday after they pleaded guilty in March to criminal possession of forgery devices. They were also ordered to forfeit $7,000 in proceeds that investigators found in their apartment.Authorities said the duo were involved with fellow Queens residents Valer Zaharia, 38, and his 27-year-old wife, Teodora Zaharia, who each pleaded guilty to grand larceny. Teodora was sentenced to nine months in jail last month. Valer, who also pleaded guilty to conspiracy last month, was sentenced to 2 to 6 years in prison—in addition to forfeiting $61,251.MTA police officers arrested the couple in October a day after watching them retrieve two skimming devices and hidden cameras from Ticket Vending Machines at the Sea Cliff LIRR station.When police executed a search warrant on the couple’s apartment, investigators found materials used to manufacture credit card skimmers and cameras installed at LIRR and Metro-North Rail Road stations, plus cash obtained using stolen bank information, authorities said.A fifth man, 31-year-old Cezar Nastasa, who fled the country when the other four were arrested, is wanted on charges of grand larceny, conspiracy, unlawful possession of a skimmer device and criminal possession of a forgery device.
PNG LNG (Image courtesy of Oil Search)US energy giant ExxonMobil said it was still assessing the extent of damage at its PNG LNG export project following a magnitude 7.5 earthquake that struck on Monday in Papua New Guinea’s highlands.ExxonMobil previously announced it had shut the two LNG trains at the plant on the coast near Port Moresby after earlier shutting its Hides gas conditioning plant and Hides production pads in Hela province in the highlands region.In an update on Thursday, ExxonMobil’s PNG unit, operator of PNG LNG, said the evacuation of non-essential personnel from the Hides plant had been completed with specialist engineers flown to Hides to join remaining personnel on site to assist with damage and repair assessments.According to the statement, a surveillance of the PNG LNG pipeline on Wednesday, February 28 confirmed it has not been damaged.“A full assessment of the damage caused by the earthquake is expected to take time, particularly given the damage to roads and other infrastructure,” the statement said. LNG World News Staff ExxonMobil declares force majeure? Reuters reported on Friday citing an unidentified industry source as saying that ExxonMobil had declared force majeure on exports from the PNG LNG project.The report said that ExxonMobil had earlier told buyers that the plant’s two LNG trains would be shut for at least seven days.According to the report, there are concerns about a possible extended shutdown, which could affect not only the project’s four main buyers but also other buyers in Asia.ExxonMobil owns 41.6% percent in the LNG project while Oil Search holds a 29 percent interest in PNG LNG, partly located in the Highlands region of Papua New Guinea.The project includes the gas conditioning plant in Hides and liquefaction and storage facilities near Port Moresby with a capacity of 6.9 million tonnes per year.
