After being robbed and shot in the head by alleged gang members in a dangerous neighborhood in the southern San José suburb of Desamparados, Flesch spent six days unidentified in the hospital, and a month in a coma, fighting for his life. Shaken by the story, members of the travel and expat communities have begun discussing what went wrong for Flesch, and how his situation might have been different.The Tico Times examines some of the central questions surrounding the events that led to Flesch’s death:What is the Torremolinos neighborhood of Desamparados, where Flesh was assaulted and shot? How would a tourist wind up there?Torremolinos is a crime-ridden area in the southern suburbs of San José. How Flesch ended up there is a total mystery. “This is an isolated case,” said Jorge Chávez, the lead investigator on Flesch’s case for the Judicial Investigation Police. Contrary to a rumor published by a local English-language blog, Chávez says he’s never heard of any tourist being lured there by the promise of drugs or sex. “We never find tourists there,” he said. “They would have no reason to go.”Flesch’s mom believes her son may have simply gotten lost, or taken the wrong bus to get to the dentist.When Steve Flesch arrived at San Juan de Dios Hospital in San José, unconscious and robbed of his passport, what did the hospital do to try to identify him?According to San Juan de Dios spokeswoman Andrea de la Cruz, when an unidentified critically injured person arrives at the hospital, the first step is to attempt to save the person’s life. Once the patient is in a stable condition, hospital staff will make calls in an attempt to determine the individual’s identity. If the nationality of the patient is unclear, the hospital contacts the embassies with the highest number of tourists who come to Costa Rica. De la Cruz said this is what was done for Flesch, but she could not say when the hospital first called the embassy.Why wasn’t he identified?U.S. Embassy spokeswoman Evelyn Ardón said that San Juan de Dios Hospital never placed a call to the embassy. “The hospital did not identify Mr. Flesch as a U.S. citizen and, therefore, did not inform the embassy of his presence,” she said. Ardón added that consular officers contacted the hospital to inquire about Flesch, but they were not informed that an unidentified 6-foot-3 foreigner – likely a North American – had been there, unconscious, for days.So who dropped the ball? And whom should you call if a U.S. citizen you know disappears in Costa Rica?It’s unclear who is to blame for the delay in identifying Flesch, and there were a few factors in play. “We have no higher priority than the safety and security of U.S. citizens overseas,” Ardón said. “When a U.S. citizen is reported missing abroad, our consular officers work with local police and authorities, including medical authorities, to locate the person.”Although his family was searching for Flesch starting on April 4, the embassy said it did not hear about it until April 7. “Our consular officers immediately began the process of searching for Mr. Flesch after he was reported missing,” Ardón said. Although consular officers made inquiries at local hospitals, the embassy “regrettably” did not locate Mr. Flesch, she said. Instead, it was Flesch’s friends who discovered him at San Juan de Dios.When Flesch’s parents decided they wanted to airlift him back to the U.S., they were hit up for tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills. How can travelers be sure they are covered for this? They can’t. While many international insurance plans cover emergency medical transportation between facilities, that doesn’t necessarily include international medical flights. For a patient to be airlifted back to the U.S., underwriters must deem it necessary. “That’s not likely here, because Costa Rica has good medical facilities,” said Zane Beaty of HCC Medical Services, an international health insurance provider.Flesch’s parents also wanted to transfer him to a private hospital, but the cost would have been high, as he had no health insurance. Will travel health insurance pay for a transport from a public to a private facility? Four international health insurance providers contacted by The Tico Times reported that their coverage extends to all public and private hospitals in Costa Rica, as well as transportation between the hospitals (if deemed necessary). The companies also pay outstanding medical bills to expedite the release or transfer of a patient. If Flesch had been insured, though, there are no guarantees that his insurance company would have deemed it medically necessary for him to be transferred to a private hospital.What about risky adventures? Are they covered by travel insurance? Maybe. Some companies do not cover certain areas of the world or certain activities. Others will cover this kind of travel, but at extra cost. “Bottom line: if you put yourself at risk or you place yourself in the crossfire, then you are unlikely to be covered,” according to travel insurance provider World Nomads.What happens to Flesch’s body? Flesch’s body was in the morgue for the time it took to perform an autopsy, part of evidence-gathering in the ongoing criminal cases against three minors and two adults who have been charged with his homicide, according to police. The body was released as of Tuesday, although authorities could not say where it had gone. Don and Sharon Flesch are making arrangements to bring their son’s body back to the U.S.—In an international emergency, getting prompt, accurate information is crucial. But language barriers and confusion often occur.

Unity economists break from party and endorse Libertarian presidential candidate

first_imgIn the latest step in the descent of the Social Christian Unity Party (PUSC), a group of party economists are now voicing their support for Libertarian Movement Party candidate Otto Guevara, saying his embrace of the free market is the only solution to the twin electoral threats of socialism and a continuation of the current ruling party’s culture of corruption.A former president of Costa Rica’s Central Bank and previous PUSC supporter, Jorge Guardia, attacked one of the rising opposition candidates.“The country faces an urgent political dilemma,” Guardia said at a Tuesday press conference. “There exists the risk that José María Villalta, of the socialist Broad Front Party, could win the February presidential elections.”Guardia praised the Libertarian Movement presidential nominee as having the only economic plan to solve Costa Rica’s woes, such as its 8.9 percent unemployment rate. He said he made the switch because polls have shown that current PUSC candidate, Rodolfo Piza, has no chance to even reach the runoff.Recent polls have shown a collapse of support for the one-time ruling PUSC party, while mostly showing Villalta and ruling National Liberation Party nominee Johnny Araya, the former mayor of San José, as the front-runners. Most polls have placed Guevara in third place. If no candidate gets more than 40 percent of the vote on Feb. 2, the top two finishers will face a runoff.Guevara thanked his new-found supporters and used the opportunity to slam his top opponents.“The choice is between three,” Guevara said. “Socialism on one side, a continuation of impoverishment, or a change to strengthen the economy.”Joining Guardia in dissenting from his former party were eight other economists, including university professors, former private bank presidents, and former Costa Rica central bank functionaries.This latest political infidelity is one of many blows for the party that ruled Costa Rica’s government from 1998-2006. In the 2002 election, PUSC’s Abel Pacheco won the presidency with 58 percent of the vote and captured a plurality of seats in the national legislature. In the next election, 2006, PUSC captured only 3.6 percent of the presidential vote, after former presidents Rafael Ángel Calderón Fournier and Miguel Ángel Rodríguez were tarnished by corruption probes. In October, the party’s initial presidential candidate withdrew after an internal dispute with his own campaign managers only days after Costa Rica’s presidential race officially kicked off.Guevara himself left PUSC to join the Libertarian Movement Party in 1994.

Tariffs on fruit products could lead to knockon e

first_imgTariffs on fruit products could lead to knock-on effects in other markets – a concern recently raised by the Chilean apple industry.In addition, the U.S. apple industry is also facing a 25% tariff hike in India in retaliation for U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. By mid-May this year India had overtaken Canada to become Washington state’s second-biggest apple export market. Beijing is targeting sectors, like agriculture, that could harm Trump politically at home, though he said in the CNBC interview that he is seeking to do only what is fair.”I’m not doing this for politics, I’m doing this to do the right thing for our country,” Trump said. “We have been ripped off by China for a long time.”China does not have the wherewithal to match the U.S. on tariffs, but China’s central bank is allowing its tightly controlled currency to drift lower against the dollar, a move that could help Chinese exporters cope with U.S. tariff hikes.However, such a maneuver could also reignite an outflow of capital Beijing spent months trying to stanch.www.freshfruitportal.com China: Dongfang sees lower profit in 2018 but reco … You might also be interested in U.S. increases tariffs on China to 25% in major tr … July 20 , 2018 center_img Chinese cherry production, imports to rise in 2019 … U.S. President Donald Trump has indicated that he’s willing to hit every product imported from China with tariffs, in another escalation of the trade war. In a taped interview with the business channel CNBC, Trump said “I’m willing to go to 500,” referring roughly to the $505.5 billion in goods imported last year from China, the New York Times reported.The U.S. Government put a 15% tariff on US$34 billion of Chinese goods in mid-June, to which China retaliated with duties of its own, hitting U.S. imports of fruit including cherries, citrus and apples.On July 10 the U.S. announced a second possible round targeting US$200 billion worth of goods. Beijing vowed “firm and forceful measures” in response.Richard Owen from the Produce Marketing Association (PMA) earlier told Fresh Fruit Portal he believed the tariffs on U.S. fruit products would have a greater effect on apples and citrus – for which there is greater competition – than for higher value products like cherries, which could more easily absorb the increase.

Fiji Airways To Meet With Boeing Senior Executives

first_imgFiji Airways has been invited to meet with Boeing executives in Renton, Washington, United States of America, as part of international efforts to get the troubled Boeing 737 MAX 8s flying again.A Fiji Airways spokesperson said the national carrier will be represented at a meeting Boeing is holding. Fiji Airways has two Boeing 737 Max 8s and three more due for delivery.They are grounded along with Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 9 fleets around the world.Pilots from several airlines met with Boeing executives in Renton, on Saturday to discuss proposed changes to the 737 MAX, two of which have crashed in recent months.The meeting on Saturday, with about a dozen pilots and trainers, was part of Boeing’s effort to manage the crisis set off by the crash of Indonesian Lion Air Flight 610 in October, last year and the crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 under similar circumstances earlier this month.Boeing and people briefed on the meeting confirmed it.In addition to reviewing proposed modifications to new anti-stall software and cockpit displays, pilots from five airlines strapped into flight simulators to see how they would have handled the situation that is believed to have brought down Lion Air Flight 610 in Indonesia, according to two people briefed on the meeting.In each case, the pilots using the simulators were able to land the plane safely. Saturday’s session included representatives from American Airlines, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines — the three American carriers that fly the MAX — as well as from two nonU.S. airlines, Copa Airlines and Fly Dubai.The group did not include representatives from Ethiopian Airlines, Lion Air or the large Chinese carriers that fly the 737 MAX. Fiji Airways in an earlier in statement said: “In line with the stance taken by aviation regulators in our region, and an increasing number of operators worldwide, Fiji Airways, together with the Civil Aviation Authority of Fiji, has taken the decision to temporarily ground its fleet of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft until more information is known about the cause of the Ethiopian Airlines accident.“We would like to stress that Fiji Airways, together with the Civil Aviation Authority of Fiji, continue to have full confidence in the airworthiness of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, and in the skilled and experienced Fiji Airways pilots and engineers who operate them.“Since Fiji Airways commenced operating the Boeing 737 MAX in December 2018, the aircraft has proven to be reliable and efficient, and continuous flight data monitoring has not identified any issues that would give rise to a cause for concern.“However, out of deference to the position taken by regulators in our region, and in response to the concerns expressed by the general public, both Fiji Airways and the Civil Aviation Authority of Fiji have agreed that the most appropriate course is to impose this temporary grounding.We will continue to monitor developments closely, and this decision will be reviewed in light of any new information.” he said.The post Fiji Airways To Meet With Boeing Senior Executives appeared first on Discover the South Pacific.Source: Bloglast_img read more

The Arizona Cardinals have had a punting competiti

first_img The Arizona Cardinals have had a punting competition going on throughout training camp.Matt Wile and Richie Leone are vying for the position on this year’s team, but heading into the final preseason game against Denver Thursday night, neither had separated himself.Don’t believe it? Check the numbers.“It will go to the wire,” head coach Bruce Arians said about the punting battle on Aug. 24. “It”ll go to the wire, especially with the new rules about not having to cut anybody.” Top Stories Carolina Panthers punter Andy Lee stretches before an NFL football preseason game against the Tennessee Titans Saturday, Aug. 19, 2017, in Nashville, Tenn. (AP Photo/Mark Zaleski) The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact 22 Comments   Share   Panthers released veteran punter Andy Lee and are planning to go with Mike Palardy as their punter, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 2, 2017 But resources might not matter given that ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the Panthers released the veteran punter on Saturday. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires So Wile and Leone will handle the duties against the Broncos, but even a standout performance by either of them might not be enough to secure the job.Reports out of Charlotte Wednesday morning indicate that the Carolina Panthers are gauging trade interest on veteran punter Andy Lee.Lee, 35, is in his second season with Charlotte, but had his 2016 campaign cut short by a torn hamstring. He’s currently battling with Michael Palardy for the Panthers’ punting position.From Jourdan Rodrigue and Joseph Person’s report in the Charlotte Observer:Lee took a pay cut this spring from base salaries of $3.43 million in 2017 and $4.13 million in 2018 to $1 million and $1.1 million, respectively. That manageable sum, plus his name-recognition, are possibly two appealing factors to teams in the market for a punter.That kind of fits the Cardinals, doesn’t it?Lee spent 11 years in San Francisco, where he was a teammate of Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson from 2013 to 2015. He’s a two-time Pro Bowler and led the league, averaging 50.9 yards per punt — the third-highest single-season mark in NFL history.Mike Jurecki of 98.7 FM, Arizona’s Sports Station, has learned that the Cardinals do have interest in Lee, and by having four compensatory selections in the 2018 NFL Draft — a third-round, a fourth-round and two sixth-round picks — could have the requisite resources to get a deal done prior to the regular season opener in Detroit.last_img read more

Travelling alone can be daunting especially if yo

first_imgTravelling alone can be daunting, especially if you normally travel with a friend or family member, but those who have made the journey believe it to be a life changing experience. With many benefits such as the chance to meet new people, try things you may not have been able to do with an unwilling travel companion and have control of your own itinerary, more and more seniors are including travelling solo in their retirement plans. Having faced fears you will return with a new found confidence. So what options do you have when it comes to solo travelling?Escorted ToursEscorted tours with small groups can be a great first step into solo-travelling. There are plenty of options available with providers such as Titan Travel who operate tours across the world. These include US National Parks, Route 66, India and China, by road, and rail. Generally the majority of travellers on these trips are singles so you won’t feel alone amongst couples, and as tours are created with solo travellers in mind you’re likely to avoid the dreaded single supplement. With a planned itinerary, optional tours and extras, a local tour guide and an ideal balance between freedom and peace of mind.CruisesAlternatively, a cruise offers a variety of options, from short 7 night Mediterranean cruises, to 3 month long around the world adventures. A typical cruise consists of a number of stops in key port cities where you can spend the day exploring the city of your own accord, onboard you will find lots of activities, group dining and lots of opportunities to socialise and relax between ports. Look out for cruises with single occupancy cabins, these are in short supply, and as they are an increasingly popular option for solo travellers they sell out fast. Research in advance and book as early as possible. Activity HolidaysIf you have a hobby or interest which isn’t shared by friends or family members an activity holiday can be a great way to immerse yourself into your hobby, travel and meet many others who share your interests. Like the escorted tours, activity holidays cater for solo travellers. Yoga, pilates, cooking, photography, walking and painting are just a few of the many activities offered from tour operators such as Destination Yoga, Flavours Holidays and Authentic Adventures. Cooking holidays are available in countries with distinct cuisines such as France and Italy – you will learn how to cook the popular dishes of the country using local produce and explore the regional wines to pair with your dish. As well as cooking lessons many trips offer free time for day trips into the local area. BackpackingBackpacking around the world, and the nomad lifestyle is popular amongst single travellers, especially in destinations such as Thailand, Australia and Vietnam. Backpacking offers the potential for long term travelling whilst sticking to a budget, an option for those looking to explore the world during their retirement. Although this is more popular with the gap year travellers and bloggers, more and more retirees are making the trip. If you’re not too keen on the idea of sharing rooms in hostels an alternative is house-sitting, a popular choice for those looking to stay in a particular area for more a few nights. If you’re planning on travelling through a variety of destinations, our multi-city flight search can assist. Read more: 10 best backpacking tips and tricksHave you travelled solo?

Flag carrier PAL lauds lifting of US security notice on NAIA

first_img DOT welcomes lifting of US security notice on NAIA The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued the travel advisory on the Philippines’ busiest airport in December 2018, saying the hub’s security falls short of international standards.The advisory was lifted 7 months after new X-ray machines, walk-through metal detectors and alarm systems were installed in the airport. MANILA – Philippine Airlines on Friday lauded the United States’ decision to lift its security advisory on the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).The flag carrier congratulated the Philippine government for upgrading the security in the country’s main gateway to meet International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards.”As the flag carrier and largest international airline operating at the NAIA, Philippine Airlines will continue to cooperate with the DOTr (Department of Transportation) and MIAA (Manila International Airport Authority) to sustain the positive developments so that our passengers benefit from a safe and secure gateway airport in their journeys to and from Manila,” PAL said in a statement.PAL operates flights to US destinations Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Guam and Honolulu.The Department of Tourism earlier said the development could boost the government’s efforts to lure more tourists to the country.“We, at DOT, are very elated and encouraged by this development as we renew our commitment to extend to the public, particularly our international visitors, the highest potentials of the Filipino brand of service,” Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat said.”This development also augurs well for the DOT’s efforts to increase tourist arrivals and for the development of a culture of resilient, inclusive, and sustainable tourism in the country,” she said.center_img NAIA security measures get US government approvallast_img read more
