Jonah – Wikipedia
 

mikenova shared this story .

Jonah or Jonas[a] is the name given in the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh/Old Testament) to a prophet of the northern kingdom of Israel in about the 8th century BCE. He is the eponymous central figure of the Book of Jonah, in which he is called upon by God to travel to Nineveh and warn its residents to repent of their sins or face divine wrath. Instead, Jonah boards a ship to Tarshish. Caught in a storm, he orders the ship’s crew to cast him overboard, whereupon he is swallowed by a giant fish. Three days later, after Jonah agrees to go to Nineveh, the fish vomits him out onto the shore. Jonah successfully convinces the entire city of Nineveh to repent, but waits outside the city in expectation of its destruction. God shields Jonah from the sun with a plant, but later sends a worm to cause it to wither. When Jonah complains of the bitter heat, God rebukes him.

In Judaism, the story of Jonah represents the teaching of teshuva, which is the ability to repent and be forgiven by God. In the New TestamentJesus calls himself “greater than Jonah” and promises the Pharisees “the sign of Jonah”, which is his resurrection. Early Christian interpreters viewed Jonah as a type for Jesus. Later, during the Reformation, Jonah came to be seen instead as an archetype for the “envious Jew”. Jonah is regarded as a prophet in Islam and the biblical narrative of Jonah is repeated, with a few notable differences, in the Quran. Mainstream Bible scholars generally regard the Book of Jonah as fictional and often at least partially satirical, but the character of Jonah may have been based on the historical prophet of the same name mentioned in 2 Kings 14:25.

Although the word “whale” is often used in English versions of the Jonah story, the Hebrew text actually uses the phrase dag gadol, which means “giant fish”. In the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, the species of the fish that swallowed Jonah was the subject of speculation for naturalists, who interpreted the story as an account of a historical incident. Some modern scholars of folklore have noted similarities between Jonah and other legendary figures, such as Gilgamesh and the Greek hero Jason.

Mueller investigators questioned witnesses in Israel and seized computers, report says – U.S. News
 

WASHINGTON – The investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into foreign interference in the 2016 U.S. elections has included interviews and the questioning of witnesses in Israel, which focused on the work of a local company specializing in “social media manipulation,” The New York Times reported Saturday.

According to the report, Mueller’s team is looking into contacts between Joel Zamel, an Israeli social media expert, and George Nader, a special adviser to the leadership of the United Arab Emirates, who allegedly offered to help Trump defeat his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. Nader’s name has come up in a number of previous reports about Mueller’s investigation, mostly regarding his work on behalf of the UAE and the ties between the Emirates and Trump. This is the first time, however, that it has been directly reported that interviews related to the Mueller investigation were held in Israel.

The report, citing four sources, said that a company linked to Zamel, Psy-Group, was working on an online manipulation campaign that involved usage thousands of fake social media accounts to help Trump get elected. According to the report, Zamel himself was questioned by Mueller’s investigators and at least two FBI agents were sent to Israel to interview the company’s employees. Mueller’s team also worked with the Israel Police to seize computers of one of Zamel’s firms. The New York Times notes that there were concerns inside the company about the plan’s legality, since U.S. law prohibits non-Americans from being involved in the election.

The report says that Nader and Zamel met with Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., in August 2016, three month ahead of the presidential election, and discussed ways to help the Trump campaign.

The meeting was organized by Erik Prince, a businessman with extensive ties to the Gulf monarchies, and the brother of Trump’s Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos. Prince is also involved in another event that has reportedly become part of Mueller’s investigation – a meeting he held with a person close to Russian President Vladimir Putin in January 2017 in the Seychelles. Prince donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to organizations that worked to promote Trump’s election campaign.

Nader reportedly told Trump Jr. during the meeting that “the crown princes who led Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were eager to help his father win the elections as president.” Zamel then “extolled his company’s ability to give an edge to a political campaign,” the report says.

The report claimed that a short time after Trump’s election victory, Nader transferred a large sum of money to Zamel. “There are conflicting accounts of the reason for the payment, but among other things, a company linked to Mr. Zamel provided Mr. Nader with an elaborate presentation about the significance of social media campaigning to Mr. Trump’s victory,” the report stated. The sum of money could have allegedly been as high as $2 million.

Zamel has already been questioned by Mueller’s team, according to an earlier report by the Wall Street Journal. The NYT report stated clearly that “investigators have questioned numerous witnesses in Washington, New York, Atlanta, Tel Aviv and elsewhere about what foreign help may have been pledged or accepted” during the 2016 election.

Zamel’s lawyer denied his client took part in Trump’s campaign, saying Zamel has “provided full cooperation to the government to assist with their investigation.” Nader’s lawyer said her client “has fully cooperated with the special counsel’s investigation and will continue to do so.”

Another person with ties to Israel who has reportedly become part of the investigation is billionaire Elliott Broidy, a prominent Republican donor who worked with Nader during Trump’s first year in office to promote pro-UAE policies by the Trump administration. Broidy has significant business interests in the UAE, and also has ties to leading figures in Israel, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He was one of the leading donors and fund-raisers for the Republican party during the 2016 campaign.

Former employee claims Office of the Federal Prosecutor is the “reign of terror”
 

After the office of the Federal Prosecutor’s Office in Puerto Rico, led by Rosa Emilia Rodriguez, lost the case due to work harassment, the former employee described the establishment as a “reign of terror”.

Francisco Reyes Caparrós, who worked as an Intelligence Specialist in the Office of the Federal Prosecutor in Puerto Rico, said in RADIO ISLA  that Emilia Rodriguez’s agency helps crime.

“But as the copper is beaten among employees that is another story because there is the reign of terror, or what I say or do what I say … there you can not disagree, you can not complain, or you submit or submit “He said.

Reyes Caparrós also revealed that there are many more employees who have gone through the same situation but do not want to report it.

“Many people who have not been able to face sent messages of support during all this time but not one day because they will have to live what I experienced,” he continued.

The determination of the case was issued by a jury of eight men and eight women who agreed that Reyes Caparrós should be compensated with $ 300,000.

The former federal employee worked between the years 2009 to 2015.

The FBI’s Trump-Russia investigation had a secret codename based on a Rolling Stones song

fbi building j edgar hoover

  • The FBI was pursuing a secret investigation into Russian election interference and President Donald Trump’s campaign 100 days before Election Day, according to a New York Times report.
  • The investigation was nicknamed “Crossfire Hurricane.”
  • Information gathered reportedly contributed compelling evidence in favor of the controversial surveillance of Carter Page. 

The New York Times reported FBI agents started a secret investigation into Russian election interference and  President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign called “Crossfire Hurricane” just 100 days before Election Day.

The investigation added to the political firestorm started earlier that year by the agency’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, which has been credited with pushing Trump toward electoral victory.

Agents reportedly avoided interviewing Trump associates and subpoenaing documents to keep the investigation secret. Only about five Justice Department officials were aware of the case, according to officials cited in the story, in contrast to the dozen who would normally be briefed on such a national security matter.

“Crossfire Hurricane,” a reference to a Rolling Stones lyrics, continued in secret as Trump publicly railed against the investigation, calling it a “witch hunt.”

The Trump campaign aides interviewed because of potential Russian ties included former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, and former foreign policy advisers Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, current and former officials told the Times.

Page ended up at the center of controversy when Republicans said the FBI had overstepped its authority in surveillance of Page, who had reportedly been known to the FBI since 2013 for previous contact with Russian spies.

The previously secret assignment began with an August 2016 FBI interview of the Australian ambassador about his meeting with Papadopoulos to evaluate evidence a campaign adviser knew about Russian meddling.

FBI Counterintelligence Activities Should Be Separate

President Donald Trump. Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is one of the finest law enforcement agencies on earth—perhaps the finest. While no sprawling bureaucracy of tens of thousands of special agents, analysts and support personnel, scattered around 56 field offices nationwide, is without its malcontents and missteps, the FBI’s overall reputation is one of honesty, dedication and professionalism, deservedly so.

Given its role as America’s top law enforcement agency, the Bureau has been a lightning rod for criticism since its founding 110 years ago, and the astonishingly long tenure of J. Edgar Hoover as its director from 1924 to 1972 remains a touchy topic, not always fairly. Historically, most of the criticism of the FBI has come from civil libertarians and the Left, whereas more recently attacks on the Bureau have shifted to stemming from the Right, specifically fans of the Trump administration, who in an unhinged fashion have compared the FBI to Nazis and the KGB.

The Bureau’s top critic today is President Donald Trump himself, who ever since his inauguration has waged an ugly public campaign against the FBI, regularly accusing it of irregularities and worse in its investigation of his secret Kremlin connections. Today, Trump took to Twitter, as he so often does, and raged at the FBI again, accusing it of having a “representative implanted, for political purposes, into my campaign for president. It took place very early on, and long before the phony Russia Hoax became a ‘hot’ Fake News story. If true—all time biggest political scandal!”

If true, indeed. This is a grave accusation, and it’s false on its face. In the first place, the FBI is forbidden from engaging in any overtly political investigations. Moreover, there’s as yet no public evidence of any FBI-controlled person inside the Trump campaign in 2016 (to say nothing of the fact that moles are “planted” while fake breasts are “implanted”). Lastly, the president seems not to understand that if anyone connected to him went to the FBI to report his or her concerns about ties to Russia, that’s a very different story than the Bureau planting someone inside the Trump campaign. This matter needs resolution. Indeed, the president could settle the matter immediately by picking up the phone and asking Attorney General Jeff Sessions if these rumors are true—that’s his right as the current resident of the White House. That Trump prefers to tweet angrily about what’s alleged on Fox News speaks volumes.

Nevertheless, Trump’s public anger at the FBI is something that’s unhealthy in any law-based democracy, and it may have long-lasting effects, all of them negative. That said, the remarkable thing is that it took this long for a White House to declare open war on the Bureau. Richard Nixon came close as the walls of Watergate closed in on him—and he certainly would have if he had known that the main leaker to the media about the whole affair was the FBI’s associate director, Mark Felt, who hated the president for not appointing him director—but even Nixon’s attacks on the Bureau appear tame next to Trump’s scorched-earth campaign.

As both the leading federal law enforcement agency and our top domestic intelligence agency, the FBI occupies a uniquely powerful position in our country. This situation is frankly anomalous, an accident of American history, and may not be healthy or conducive to good governance in the 21st century. There’s a reason that most Western democracies split law enforcement duties and spying on their own citizens between different agencies. Both those missions include a great deal of bureaucratic power, and placing them under one roof seems like an invitation to abuse if the institution is not monitored very carefully.

Although few Americans realize it, the FBI is replicated in few of our close security partners. Looking at the so-called Five Eyes espionage alliance, the Anglosphere intelligence network that’s been the world’s most powerful spy system since World War II, illustrates the difference. In Britain, the domestic intelligence mission is handled by the Security Service (popularly called MI5)—that means counterintelligence and counterterrorism, watching for foreign spies and terrorists—while the job of arresting bad guys falls to Metropolitan Police Special Branch, cops who are cleared to know state secrets, but who are not themselves spies.

Canada replicates this system, with the Canadian Security Intelligence Service as MI5 and the storied Mounties acting as Police Special Branch. It’s the same in Australia and New Zealand, with only the agencies’ names changed. Israel models its spy services on Britain and possesses its Security Agency (SHABAK in Hebrew) for domestic intelligence, which cooperates with the national police if cases lead to arrests. Germany, too, follows this model with the mouthful Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) to monitor spies, terrorists, and extremists inside the country, while the Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) makes arrests when needed.

In many ways, this is a better arrangement, and not just because it provides an added layer of protection to civil liberties. Americans seldom ponder it, but it may not be a wise idea to blend the spy-cop mission as the FBI does and always has. Moreover, allowing your domestic intelligence agency to focus solely on spying, instead of working as police simultaneously, may lead to more efficient counterintelligence and counterterrorism operations. Contrary to TV and movies, most domestic spy operations stop short of arrest, for good reason.

This became an issue in the aftermath of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, when it was apparent that the FBI had dropped some balls in counterterrorism. This had something to do with the fact that in the 1990s, its fast-track agents went into catching bank robbers and other criminals, not domestic intelligence, which after the Cold War became a career backwater. Arrests, especially high-profile ones, led to Bureau awards and promotions, while hush-hush successes in domestic intelligence—which may not lead to any arrests—didn’t necessarily.

After 9/11, the FBI’s national security work got a big boost in money, people and prestige, and for more than a decade, catching terrorists is where the Bureau’s fast-movers gravitated. However, counterintelligence suffered, as was demonstrated by the FBI’s lackluster performance in its inquiry into the Trump campaign’s links to Russia. Contrary to Trumpian complaints about an overly aggressive Bureau trampling on civil liberties, the FBI’s slow-moving 2016 counterintelligence investigation of Team Trump, memorably termed CROSSFIRE HURRICANE, in fact was stymied by insufficient resources, bureaucratic dysfunction and excessive caution.

In the early-aughts, when Congress investigated our Intelligence Community to ensure the painful lessons of 9/11 were learned, taking the domestic intelligence mission away from the FBI was briefly pondered, but the idea never got much traction inside the Beltway. The creation of a stand-alone domestic spy agency was resisted mightily by the FBI for turf reasons. Suggestions, particularly by some in American counterintelligence, to remake our spy system more like our Five Eyes partners’, thus faded by the end of George W. Bush’s first term. This is regrettable, since had the FBI been taken out of the espionage business, and left to focus on federal law enforcement, we would not have the awkward mess that is causing so much chaos in Washington, D.C. right now, and Trump would not have the FBI as his Twitter whipping boy.

In the aftermath of KremlinGate, there will surely be post-mortems and perhaps full-fledged Congressional investigations of what went wrong—and how not to repeat the events of 2016, when Russian spies and lies subverted our democracy. Without any insult to the men and women of the FBI, the overwhelming majority of whom are hard-working patriots, recasting American domestic intelligence along the lines of our closest security partners needs to be on the table for serious consideration.

Once again, Americans are facing a tragedy involving guns. This time, at least 10 people were killed during an attack at a Texas high school Friday.

More than five years have passed since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, where 20 children and six adults were killed. In that time, dozens of gun safety proposals have been introduced in Congress attempting to fix glaring issues with gun safety and regulation. More than 1,600 mass shootings have taken place in America since then.

Here is a guide to what Congress has — or, more accurately, has not — accomplished during this time.

El exespecialista en inteligencia de la Fiscalía Federal, Francisco Reyes siguió los canales administrativos para tramitar un permiso para realizar un viaje personal a Rusia, el cual le levantó preocupación al gobierno federal.

Así lo reconoció Jim Kirder, de la Oficina del Inspector General (OIG), testigo del Departamento de Justicia estadounidense a preguntas de la abogada de Reyes Caparros Bamily López, en la continuación del juicio que se sigue por alegadas represalias y hostigamiento laboral contra la fiscal federal Rosa Emilia Rodríguez Vélez.

La fiscal no estuvo presente durante el proceso judicial que preside el juez visitante de New Hampshire, Joseph Laplante.

Reyes Caparros le envió un correo electrónico a su supervisora Lisa Western, oficial administrativa de la fiscalía federal en el que le comunicó sobre su intención de efectuar el viaje a ese país de Europa Oriental.

La invitación al viaje le fue extendida por un amigo de la infancia, identificado como Kaleb Rodríguez Cruz. La actividad era uno cultural, era denominada “Forum 2013 Rusia”.

El Negociado de Investigaciones Especiales (FBI) y la OIG, efectuaron sendas investigaciones a Reyes Caparros por el referido viaje. Ambas pesquisas tuvieron resultados negativas sobre la comisión de delitos. Las mismas se iniciaron en octubre de 2013. La investigación del OIG culminó el 3 de septiembre de 2014 y la del FBI el 22 de diciembre de 2015.

El demandante nunca efectuó el viaje.

A preguntas de López sobre por qué se exacerbó la preocupación del viaje a Rusia, Kirder respondió porque era la primera vez que la OIG recibía este tipo de referido y porque el demandante era un empleado federal y les preocupaba que este pudiera recibir influencia del gobierno ruso.

Señaló que la pesquisa de la OIG se inició como una criminal. Posteriormente, se determinó que no había evidencia suficiente para que sostuviera una violación criminal como para la radiación de cargos.

Empero, el testigo manifestó que se continuó una pesquisa administrativa.

Durante el directo a cargo del abogado del gobierno federal, Jason Weida, Kirder indicó que a su oficina le preocupó el hecho de que Reyes Caparros, utilizó el correo electrónico oficial para enviarle una foto de su pasaporte a Rodríguez Cruz.

Posteriormente, López le notificó al testigo que Rodríguez Cruz es el esposo de la cónsul de Rusia en Puerto Rico, Anastasia Kitsul.

El informe del OIG contiene dos hallazgos: que Reyes Caparros violó la prohibición de utilizar su correo electrónico para un asunto personal y que tuvo un “pobre juicio” al aceptar un viaje a Rusia, siendo un especialista en inteligencia, cuyo puesto le da acceso a información secreta.

Ante cuestionamientos de López, Kirder insistía en que el demandante debió haber llenado un formulario sobre el viaje a países extranjeros. Empero, reconoció que esa política solo aplica a los viajes oficiales.

Durante el directo del abogado de Weida, se presentó en sala un correo electrónico que le envió a Jay Macklin, del “General Counsel Office”, a Kirder en el que se le informó que el FBI corroboró que el ruso que le hizo la invitación a Reyes Caparros y a su amigo era en efecto un espía ruso.

Kirder manifestó a preguntas del letrado que la entidad rusa era un blanco del gobierno estadounidense.

Luego, a preguntas de López sobre si Reyes Caparros debía ser una persona sospechosa por recibir una invitación de un amigo de la infancia para viajar a un país extranjero, Kirder le contestó en un principio que no estaba capacitado para responder a su pregunta porque no estuvo a cargo de la pesquisa.

Entonces, la abogada insistió en la pregunta y el testigo le contestó “eso era irrelevante a nuestra investigación”.

“¿Sabe que el demandante no fue al viaje?”, preguntó López. El testigo le respondió en la afirmativa.

Alleges that prosecutor Rodríguez humiliated him | government

With the testimonies of prosecutors Jacqueline Novas and José Capó, yesterday the trial against federal prosecutor Rosa Emilia Rodríguez Vélez continued for alleged reprisals and labor harassment against former intelligence specialist Francisco Reyes Caparrós.

When plaintiff Francisco Reyes Caparros filed the legal appeal against Rosa Emilia Rodriguez.

The trial is held before the visiting judge of the New Hampshire district, Joseph Laplante. Rodriguez Velez was not present because in civil cases there is no requirement to be.

The lawsuit, filed in 2015, alleges among other points that in the summer of 2013 the plaintiff received an invitation to attend a conference in Russia, for which he was implicated with a Russian spy.

Novas and Capó reported that on October 2, 2013 agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) appeared at the offices of the Federal Prosecutor’s Office to notify Rodríguez Vélez that Reyes Caparrós was the target of a probe.

According to Capó, the agents indicated that they were worried about the referred trip, which was for young entrepreneurs and that it was going to be paid for by the entity that had invited him. The organization was not mentioned.

Capó señaló que los agentes le explicaron que su preocupación era porque Reyes Caparrós tenía acceso a información. “Tenían preocupación de que fuera reclutado por entes para sacarle información”, afirmó Capó.

Dijo que los agentes acudieron a la oficina del demandante, pero que este no se encontraba.

Mientras, Novas testificó que la oficina de Reyes Caparrós fue sellada posteriormente. Sus equipos fueron ocupados por el FBI.

Declaró que fue su oficina la que contactó a la Oficina del Inspector General y al “Special Counsel Office” para notificar lo sucedido.

La abogada del demandante, Bamily López, mostró en sala una misiva del 3 de octubre de 2013 del entonces director del FBI en la Isla, Carlos Cases, en la que le comunicó a la Fiscalía que a Reyes Caparrós se le había suspendido el acceso a información de inteligencia mientras durara la investigación. La pesquisa tuvo una duración de más de dos años.

Le asignaron nuevas tareas

Novas manifestó a preguntas de López que debido a la carta de Cases y a la pesquisa se determinó asignarle otras tareas al demandante. A este se le asignó trabajar como paralegal y a cargo de las estadísticas de la Iniciativa de Armas de Fuego.

“¿El director del FBI tenía la autoridad para determinar si un empleado podía o no tener acceso de seguridad?”, cuestionó López. Novas respondió que “la Fiscalía recibió una comunicación del FBI de que Francisco no podía tener acceso (a información) de seguridad temporalmente”.

“¿Necesitaban una carta de retractación de Cases?”, cuestionó López. Novas contestó que sería especular.

López presentó una carta del FBI con fecha del 22 de diciembre de 2015 en la que se evidenció que la pesquisa contra Reyes Caparrós se había cerrado debido a que se encontró que este no había cometido ningún acto criminal, ni representaba una amenaza.

Durante el receso de la tarde, y sin la presencia del jurado y de Novas, el juez le preguntó a López si su alegación era que el FBI también había participado de las supuestas represalias. La letrada respondió que la pesquisa del FBI se intensificó porque la Fiscalía la había impulsado.

Reyes Caparrós alega en la demanda que fue humillado por sus supervisores. El demandante señaló que el 30 de septiembre de 2013, Rodríguez Vélez convocó una reunión con todo el personal de la oficina para informarle que a consecuencia del tranque en el Congreso por el presupuesto del nuevo año fiscal solo un pequeño grupo de empleados “necesarios” iba a continuar trabajando durante el cierre del gobierno federal.

“Humor ligero”

Reyes Caparrós sostiene que durante la reunión Rodríguez Vélez dijo a los empleados que él “no le caía bien a nadie”.

Novas confirmó el incidente a preguntas de López. La testigo catalogó el comentario de Rodríguez Vélez como uno de “humor ligero” debido a que el ambiente estaba tenso ante el tranque del Congreso y las consecuencias que esto tendría en el empleo del personal de la Fiscalía.

Dijo que al escuchar el comentario pensó que el mismo no había sonado bien.

Inicialmente, Reyes Caparrós había sido incluido en la lista de los empleados que iban a permanecer trabajando, ya que era un especialista de inteligencia.

Posteriormente, fue incluido en el listado de empleados que iban a estar fuera de la oficina hasta que se resolviera la situación en el Congreso.

En un momento dado, Reyes Caparrós tuvo a su cargo las estadísticas de la Iniciativa de Armas de Fuego, la cual dirigía Capó.

En su demanda, Reyes Caparrós alegó que las estadísticas de la Fiscalía estaban incorrectas y que los casos habían sido duplicados.

Capó declaró que inicialmente le pareció una buena idea que el demandante hiciera esta labor porque era un analista de información.

Manifestó que Reyes Caparrós no llenó sus expectativas, que ponía excusas para realizar su labor a cabalidad y que incumplió las fechas límites para entregar sus informes. Capó mencionó que según el demandante, los fiscales no le entregaban las estadísticas

El abogado de Rodríguez Vélez, Jason Weida, presentó en sala correos electrónicos en los que varios fiscales le comunicaron a Capó que sí le habían entregado la información al demandante.

Meanwhile, the ex-specialist’s lawyer showed several emails addressed to Capó in the room, which reflected that Reyes Caparrós sent him tables with statistics.

Against Rodriguez Velez there are two other lawsuits filed by prosecutors Carmen Márquez and Nelson Pérez, separately.

William Villafañe is saved in FEI research
 

mikenova shared this story from Radio Isla 1320 AM.

SAN JUAN – The President of the Panel of the Independent Special Prosecutor (PFEI), Nydia Cotto Vives informed on Thursday that it was determined that the former Secretary of the Interior, William Villafañe will not be investigated by this agency, in the case of the WhatsApp conversation in the former president of the State Elections Commission (EEC), Rafael Ramos Sáenz, consulted about an electoral controversy in the last elections.

This, after evaluating the preliminary investigation report submitted recently by the Secretary of the Department of Justice (DJ), Wanda Vázquez.

“As for Mr. William Villafañe Ramos, from the Department of Justice’s own investigation report, there is no evidence or recommendation that requires further investigation,” Cotto Vives said in written statements.

However, the official explained that it was determined that a thorough investigation was conducted in the case of Ramos Sáenz. “From the report of the Department of Justice it appears that Ramos Sáenz may have incurred in violations of several articles of the Penal Code, the Electoral Code of the 21st Century, as well as the Government Ethics Law,” he said.

I have indicated that Mr. Ramón M. Mendoza Rosario was appointed as FEI and the Iris Meléndez Vega license as deputy prosecutor. These will have 90 days to carry out the investigation.

On the other hand, the president of the PFEI also reported that they accepted the recommendation of the DJ to analyze the evidence in conjunction with the collected evidence, to determine if the undersecretary of the government, Itza García; The administration of the Administration for the Support of Minors (ASUME), Waleska Maldonado and Yoniel and Yesenia Díaz Román, could have infringed the law in relation to this case.

A peek into the lives of Puerto Rican Muslims and what Ramadan means post Hurricane Maria
 

mikenova shared this story .

For Juan, Ramadan is a balancing act. On the one hand is his religious faith and practice. On the other is his land, his culture, his home: Puerto Rico.

Although he weaves these two elements of his identity together in many ways, during Ramadan, the borderline between them becomes palpable. For the Puerto Rican Muslims like Juan, the holy month of fasting brings to the surface the tensions they feel in their daily life as minorities – and as Muslims among their Puerto Rican family and Puerto Ricans in the Muslim community.

That is even more true this year in the wake of Hurricane Maria, the storm that made landfall in the southeastern city of Yabucoa on Sept. 20, 2017, and devastated parts of Puerto Rico. Even today, many parts of the island are without essential services, such as consistent electricity and water or access to schools.

I met Juan in 2015, when I first traveled to Puerto Rico in an effort to better understand the Puerto Rican Muslim story as part of my broader research on Islam in Latin America and the Caribbean. What I have found, in talking to Muslims in Puerto Rico and in many U.S. cities, is a deep history and a rich narrative that expands the understanding of what it means to be Muslim on the one hand, and, on the other, Puerto Rican. This Ramadan, Muslims in Puerto Rico are using the strength of both these identities to deal with the havoc of Hurricane Maria.

The history of Muslims in Puerto Rico

Muslims first came to the island as part of the transatlantic colonial exchange between Spain and Portugal and the “New World.” There is evidence that the first Muslims arrived with the explorers in the 16th century. Many “Moriscos,” or Iberian Muslims, came to the Caribbean bypassing several Spanish laws that prohibited them from coming to the Americas and served as merchants and explorers. Some were taken as slaves.

Enslaved Muslims from West Africa also came to the island beginning in the 16th century. While exact numbers are not known, scholars believe they were significant. These Muslim slave communities did not thrive, or even survive, but Islam established itself across the Western Hemisphere. It became the region’s “second monotheistic religion” thanks to Muslim slaves, former slaves and maroons – Africans who escaped slavery and founded independent settlements. These Muslims left their mark and contributed to the culture and history of the continents.

Due to conversion to Catholicism or the adoption of Afro-American religious traditions such as Candomblé or Santería the influence and presence of Islam in the Americas faded over time. There is no evidence of direct links between present-day Muslim communities and the enslaved Muslims who came before.

Today’s Muslim communities largely comprise recent immigrants from Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon, Egypt and Syria, with some descendants of the late 19th- and 20th-century immigrants. Ethnically speaking, nearly two-thirds of Puerto Rico’s Muslim population is made up of Palestinian immigrants, living in places like Caguas and San Juan, who came fleeing political turmoil or to pursue business interests.

Recent conversions

In recent years some Puerto Ricans have been reverting to the religion of their ancestors: Islam. In each of Puerto Rico’s nine mosques, researchers have found an increasing number of recent local converts.There is no accurate measure, but anecdotal evidence suggests rising numbers.

How do they wrestle with their identity as both Muslim and Puerto Rican?

Straddled between a predominately Arab Muslim population on the one hand and their avowedly Puerto Rican families, neighbors and co-workers who imagine Islam as a religion foreign to Puerto Rico, converts to Islam struggle to marry the two identities they now claim. They are in search of a “Boricua Islamidad” – a unique Puerto Rican Muslim identity that resists complete assimilation to Arab cultural norms even as it re-imagines and expands what it means to be Puerto Rican and a Muslim.

When I first met Juan at an Eid al-Fitr celebration, the festival of breaking the Ramadan fast, at the San Juan Convention Center in 2015, the 40-something man said, “I came to Islam by asking questions: about the ills of society, the difficulties of life.”

For Juan, Catholicism, the religion adopted by his ancestors when they converted, was too confusing. The doctrine of “tawhid” in Islam – the oneness of God – was, as he saw it, simpler than what he believed to be the complex theology of the Trinity. Furthermore, he felt that Islam called for a higher morality and sense of self-discipline. And so, he “reverted” – that is, returned to the faith of his birth and the heritage of his Iberian forebears in al-Andalus, in what is modern-day Spain.

But Juan, like many other converts, is also searching for a sense of authenticity in his new community. While Juan finds that his Muslim brothers and sisters appreciate him, he still feels marginalized because of his cultural background. He finds ways to express his “Boricuan” (a term for resident Puerto Ricans, derived from the island’s indigenous name Borinquen) pride and his Muslim identity by sporting a “taqiyah,” a short, rounded skull cap, decorated with the Puerto Rican flag.

Another Puerto Rican convert from Aguadilla, Abu Livia, lives in this tension as well. He told me during an interview, “Too often we hear people say you have to wear certain clothes, speak a certain language, look like an Arab, talk like an Arab, behave like an Arab.”

Not just Juan and Abu Livia, as I found in my research, but many other Puerto Rican Muslims are looking toward Andalusia, or Moorish Spain, to search for their roots and define who they are in a Puerto Rican society that claims a mixed background of indigenous, African and European influences.

‘Puerto Rico se levanta’

Puerto Rican Muslims not only look across the Atlantic. They also look within themselves and are finding ways of expressing their Muslim faith through the symbols and struggles of Puerto Rican culture, whether it be their flag, their family traditions, or in how they respond to the trials of Hurricane Maria.

Following up with Juan after a year of struggle in the wake of the storm, he said, “Puerto Ricans are proud, committed, strong, and ‘pa’lante’ (moving forward). And that includes Muslims.” After the destruction of Hurricane Maria, the month of Ramadan, held special meaning for him. It held hope for “renewal.”

“‘Puerto Rico se levanta,’” he said, meaning Puerto Rico will rise, and “this Ramadan it will do so in the prayer, fasting, and charity of Muslims to help one another and their fellow Puerto Ricans prepare for a better future today and forever.”

For Juan, this is just another way his Puerto Rican identity helps him be a better Muslim. As he said, “We will fast this month, but we already know what it means to be in want.”

This incorporates elements of an earlier article published on June 23, 2017.

Can Puerto Rico Recover From Maria Before the Next Storm Hits?

1 Share

Puerto Rico still doesn’t know how many people died from Hurricane Maria. The official death toll of people drowned in floods, killed by landslides, caught in collapsed houses, or who perished from environmental or health problems in the immediate aftermath of the storm seven months ago sits at 64. By just about all accounts, that is an undercount by at least an order of magnitude. New York Times review of daily mortality rates found just over 1,000 more people died during and after the storm than expected. Additional analyses suggests similar figures. Governor Ricardo Rosselló is expected to release a full review of the island’s death toll next month.

One difficulty in making these grisly calculations is that Puerto Ricans are still dying from Hurricane Maria. The storm erased the island’s power grid and crushed critical health-care infrastructure, and then the tepid disaster recovery response allowed infectious disease and mental-health issues to fester for months. There are still plenty of significant health-care challenges on the island that stem from Maria. And even as recovery stretches on, the bodies are counted, and the public-health system scrambles to avoid capsizing, the next hurricane season looms just a couple months away.

Puerto Rico was in the grip of a public-health crisis well before Maria barreled ashore in September. Zika had become endemic in the humid, tropical climate over a year before, and like many of the illnesses emerging on the island, it took advantage of a health-care system that lay in shambles. The major—and ongoing—financial and energy crunch that forced Congress to pass a bailout bill in early 2016 also hamstrung many health-care facilities. During his visit to Puerto Rico in May of that year, then-Treasury Secretary Jack Lew toured a major hospital with leaking ceilings, faltering electricity, supply delays in life-saving medications, and a backlog of dialysis patients. It was emblematic of a health-care system hobbled by crumbling infrastructure and evaporating municipal funds.

But even when the lights are on and hospitals run smoothly, demographic, geographic, and political features all contribute to a slate of inherent health challenges. Puerto Rico has experienced mass out-migration to the mainland over the past few decades, leaving behind on the island a population that is disproportionately elderly and sick. Puerto Rico has a health profile more akin to developing countries and poor communities of color than to the United States as a whole. Infant mortality has always been higher on the island than on the mainland. The infectious-disease burden is also higher than on the mainland, with forests and damp places on the island serving as reservoirs for old tropical-fever diseases that have all but been forgotten on the north side of the Caribbean.

In all, what Hurricane Maria encountered was a system perched only a small disaster away from complete chaos. But the hurricane was a very large disaster. The lackluster and slow federal response, the lack of coordination between different levels of government, the Puerto Rican Power Authority’s complete failure, and the ongoing Congress-imposed austerity plan all contributed to a months-long power outage and a drawn-out, patchwork recovery—one punctuated by a total blackout last week. Even in the best of circumstances, Maria would have created a public-health catastrophe, but what ensued was worse than it needed to be.

Doctors initially performed surgery in darkness. Primary care and dialysis services across the island ground to a halt. People drank water from Superfund sites, and pollution and trash sprawled across the island. With many people in rural areas being exposed to contaminated water, Puerto Rico faced a fatal outbreak of the fever disease leptospirosis. Experts sounded the alarm about the mental-health problems that could emerge as residents dealt with both the trauma of the storm and recovery, and with the deaths of loved ones and friends.

New evidence details the ongoing public-health fallout from the storm over half a year later. An April commentary from Pennsylvania State University researcher Alexis R. Santos-Lozada in Health Affairsindicates just who’s been at risk in the post-Maria landscape:

“In particular, we have found that the excess deaths were concentrated among older age groups. For example,among people in Puerto Rico ages seventy and older, the death rate for the period September–October was 27 percent higher in 2017, compared to previous years. Excess deaths were also concentrated in nursing homes (where the numbers of deaths were 45 percent higher in 2017 than in 2016) and emergency departments (where there was a 41 percent increase)”

A comprehensive analysis released Tuesday by the Kaiser Family Foundation  finds evidence of significant progress since last winter, but also some lingering problems settling in. A series of interviews with residents and other stakeholders found a heavy reliance on temporary shelters and tarps among many Puerto Ricans, continuing financial instability, and disruption of daily health-care. The sole constant for many people is that there are no constants; no real ability to set health-care routines and engage in healthy behaviors.

The most recent blackout again disrupted lives, while exposing thousands to hazardous pollutants. “I was in Ponce and the sewage water was flooding the area,” recalled Ruth Santiago, an environmental lawyer at the Inter American University Law School in San Juan. “Schools are out. Courts are closed. The big mall is closed … The water pumps stop working because there’s no electricity, so raw sewage [was] backing up.”

The rolling blackouts and damaged infrastructure are just one component of the health-care situation. The Kaiser Family Foundation report highlights the accelerating outmigration since the storm and the resultant aging and sickening of the island’s population.“The Puerto Rican government projects a 10.9% cumulative decline in population over the six years following the hurricanes,” it said. An NPR story finds that among the remaining elderly residents, access to long-term support and nursing is declining.

KFF also reports that the physical health needs of those remaining on the island have increased since the storm. While major outbreaks have been contained or averted, “some individuals experienced worsened chronic conditions, such as diabetes and hypertension, due to gaps in care and medications following the storms.” With reduced access to quality food, exercise, and healthy lifestyle choices, stress-linked conditions like ulcers, orthopedic problems, and weight gain are increasing in prevalance. Other reports find that dialysis patients—especially in rural places where local hospitals have been destroyed or incapacitated—are facing worsening outcomes.

Perhaps the most alarming finding is the increased burden of mental-health problems following Hurricane Maria. KFF found “sharp increases in depression, anxiety, panic attacks, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among the communities they serve.” Again, these problems heavily affected the most vulnerable. “Some interviewees pointed to ongoing emotional struggles among children, noting that some become very fearful and cry every time it rains,” the report notes.

Mental-health professionals are noticing a marked increase in suicides. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, “from November 2017 through January 2018, a crisis hotline run by Puerto Rico’s Department of Health received 3,050 calls from people who said they had attempted suicide, a 246% increase compared to the same time last year. In the same three-month period, the hotline received 9,645 calls from people who said that they had thought about attempting suicide — an 83% jump from the same time last year.” These findings are supported by a March story from Quartz, which found suicides up by a third compared to the same time period in 2016.

This slowly unfolding public-health crisis lacks the drama of the major outbreaks predicted in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Maria, but presents tremendous challenges. Still, it remains possible that an improved financial plan and outlook, along with increased access to sustainable energy, assistance from the federal government, and massive public-health campaigns from the Puerto Rican government, could combine to right the ship.

The progress that has been made, though, is extraordinarily fragile. Puerto Rico simply cannot abide another hit from a hurricane while it recovers. Historical luck is on its side—for being smack dab in the middle of the Atlantic’s hurricane alley, it’s faced remarkably few direct hits from major storms over the past few decades—but the fate of public health on the island depends mostly on the hope that those historical winds keep on blowing. It’s unclear if Puerto Rico will even know how many people died from the last hurricane season before the next one begins in June.

El Departamento de Justicia inicia investigación contra Facebook

1 Share

La secretaria de Justicia, Wanda Vázquez Garced, informó hoy que la Oficina de Asuntos Monopolísticos del Departamento de Justicia comenzó una investigación civil relacionada a las prácticas de negocios de la red social Facebook, sobre la recolección de data y el uso de la misma por terceros no autorizados.

“El requerimiento de información y producción de documentos busca obtener la data necesaria para llevar a cabo un análisis de las prácticas de seguridad y privacidad de los usuarios con relación a la práctica de Facebook en cuanto a compartir los datos a terceros”, reza un comunicado de prensa de la agencia.

La secretaria Auxiliar de la Oficina de Asuntos Monopolísticos, Denise Maldonado Rosa, dijo que Puerto Rico se une a otros estados que investigan las prácticas de privacidad de la red social.

“Los puertorriqueños están al tanto de las revelaciones recientes de que los datos de 87 billones de los usuarios de la plataforma social Facebook que terceros tuvieron acceso a su información sin el conocimiento ni consentimiento de sus usuarios. Facebook anunció que está en el proceso de notificar a sus usuarios quienes pudiesen haber sido impactados por el uso no autorizado de datos compartidos”, añade el comunicado.

Maldonado Rosa añadió que “la privacidad y seguridad de datos personales son vitalmente importantes en la era digital. Los usuarios merecen conocer los datos que recolecta Facebook y cómo la misma es utilizada y compartida”.

El 11 de abril el fundador de Facebook, Marck Mark Zuckerberg, aseguró en una vista en el Congreso de Estados Unidos que los datos personales de millones de usuarios, incluidos los suyos,  fueron vendidos sin su consentimiento a la empresa de consultoría política Cambridge Analytica. 

El escándalo de los datos de Facebook estalló en marzo, cuando varios medios revelaron que la empresa había usado datos de Facebook para elaborar perfiles psicológicos de votantes que supuestamente vendieron, entre otros, a la campaña del ahora presidente Donald Trump durante las elecciones de 2016.

Según Zuckerberg, Facebook comenzó a notificar a los usuarios que habían visto comprometidos sus datos con Cambridge Analytica.

Durante la audiencia en el Congreso, el líder de la famosa red social también aceptó que que Facebook recopila información de personas que no utilizan sus servicios “por motivos de seguridad”.

No obstante, Clarence Mitchell, portavoz de Cambridge Analytica, aseguró que la empresa a la que representa ha sido víctima de malentendidos y de información errónea. 

Mitchell también insistió en que la compañíano violó ninguna ley, pero reconoció que había encomendado una investigación independiente que se está desarrollando.

“La empresa ha sido retratada en algunos lugares como el villano de una cinta de Bond”, aseveró.

Waffle House Shooting Suspect Travis Reinking Told Tech in Audio to ‘Jump off a Bridge or Something’

1 Share

The man who allegedly killed four people at a Waffle House in Nashville, Tennessee, early Sunday morning told the owner of a laptop repair shop to “jump off a bridge” after he asked employees to delete everything on his hard drive a couple weeks before the shooting.

Travis Reinking, 29, took his laptop to Dang It Repair in March. Robert Hartline, the owner of the repair shop, said there was nothing weird about the transaction.

Reinking then made a phone call on April 11, two weeks before the shooting, and asked an employee if the shop could erase the hard drive after saying he had an issue with it.

“Sorry, are you wanting to make a backup disk? Or—” a technician asked, according to a recording of the phone call obtained by WSMV and published Tuesday.

Reinking cut him off and implied that the technician knew what he was talking about.

“No, uh, yeah, that’s what I’m saying. If I made a backup disk and kept that for later and had somebody analyze it, they are not going to find anything on it that you guys put there, are they?” Reinking asked the technician. “Why are you guys doing this, man? I don’t get it. Why…what are you getting out of this?”

When the technician said they didn’t understand the question and suggested Reinking bring in his laptop for them to take a look, he called the technician a liar. Before hanging up, Reinking said the tech should “jump off a bridge or something.”

“Yeah, well, go kill yourself then. Jump off a bridge or something,” Reinking said.

Hartline said Reinking sounded “paranoid” during the phone call. Hartline made the decision to send the audio to the police.

“It was my feeling the faster we put this info out there for everyone, the faster families can deal with their pain of loss,” Hartline told WSMV.

The shooting on Sunday launched a manhunt for the 29-year-old suspect. Reinking was found in the woods 35 hours later and taken into custody. He has been charged with four counts of criminal homicide in connection with the shooting.

Waffle House shooting suspect Travis Reinking’s one-bedroom apartment contained more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition, two laptops and a GoPro camera, according to court documents.

Police have also determined how much ammunition was used when they said Reinking, 29, opened fire in the Sunday morning shooting.

The investigation into the shooting, which killed four people and injured several others, is progressing along multiple tracks, with some officers pulling data from Reinking’s electronic devices and others combing through evidence from the crime scene.

Waffle House shooting suspect Travis Reinking captured

In documents filed with a search warrant in criminal court, police said they seized a black GoPro camera, which can be used to record video. On Wednesday, police spokesman Don Aaron confirmed that video footage “is among the material being collected from the electronic devices.”

Aaron would not describe the content of the video footage. He said the analysis of the video and other digital information was “part of the police department’s efforts to learn as much as we can about Reinking.”

At the same time, the analysis of crime scene evidence continues. Police Chief Steve Anderson told community members that “it appears that 30 rounds were expended” during the shooting, Aaron said.

Police found more ammunition in the pockets of the green bomber jacket they said Reinking wore during the shooting.

Detective Derry Baltimore outlined what police seized from Reinking’s apartment in paperwork filed in court Tuesday.

  • Remington .30-06 rifle with a magazine
  • 824 long rifle cartridges
  • 87 rifle cartridges
  • 43 .22 cartridges
  • 30 .223 cartridges
  • 29 .45 automatic cartridges
  • Two gun scopes
  • GoPro camera
  • Four cell phones, including a white iPhone
  • Two laptops
  • Two PC towers
  • Two hard drives
  • Two jump drives
  • Three routers
  • Modem

Reinking was taken into custody Monday afternoon after a 34-hour manhunt that included hundreds of law enforcement officers.

He was charged with criminal homicide in the deaths of four people. On Tuesday afternoon, police added four charges of attempted criminal homicide.

Marijuana News – The Price For Weed In These Latin America Cities Will Shock You

1 Share

 News Americas, NEW YORK, NY, Thurs. Mar. 29, 2018: When it comes to weed, Latin American cities serve up some of the cheapest globally. According to a recent study by Seedo, you can get a gram of ganja in five Latin America nations for less than US$5. Here’s where you can find the cheapest weed globally.

1: Ecuador

In Quito, Ecuador, where weed is partially legal, you can buy a gram for a mere US $1.34, the lowest anywhere in the world based on the 120 countries surveyed, which excluded the Caribbean region, including Jamaica.

2: Colombia

In Bogota, Colombia, a gram of marijuana will set you back just US $2.20, that’s the second cheapest out of the 120 countries surveyed. Weed here is partially legal as well.

STOCK UP ON YOUR WEED SNACKS NOW – LEGALLY

3: Paraguay

In Asuncion, Paraguay, a gram of partially legal weed will cost US $2.22, the third cheapest out of the 120 nations surveyed.

4: Panama

In Panama City, where ganja is still illegal, you can still get a gram for less than four dollars at US $3.85 per gram, the fourth cheapest in the survey.

5: Uruguay

In Montevideo, Uruguay, where marijuana is legal, you will have to shell out a bit more than the other Latin American cities featured here but at US $ 4.15, it is still far cheaper than weed in South Korea or Japan at under $5 and the fifth cheapest globally – at least in the Seedo list of cities and nations surveyed.

Tensions rise as Puerto Rico residents lack basic services, electricity

1 Share

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Puerto Rico’s Senate has ordered government agencies to explain why tens of thousands of people in rural areas remain without power or appropriate shelter as anger grows about the lack of basic services more than seven months after hurricanes Irma and Maria.

The agencies have been given five days to present a plan on how and when they will address the needs of rural towns, an order that came as police in a small mountain town blocked power crews from leaving Tuesday. Joining the protest was the mayor and dozens of people who noted that nearly 40 percent of Las Piedras’ inhabitants were still without electricity service as crews prepared to leave for another town on company orders.

“This is unfair,” 62-year-old town resident Rafael Jimenez said by phone. “I don’t have a problem with other towns getting power because it’s a national necessity, but we need it, too.”

When an island-wide blackout hit earlier this month, CBS News correspondent David Begnaud, who has reported extensively on the island’s devastation, reported that the power authority would prioritize restoring electricity to hospitals, the airport and gas stations. Residences would receive the lowest priority.

The standoff caught the attention of top Puerto Rico government officials and ended several hours later after the power company promised it would keep crews in Las Piedras until service is fully restored. Justo Gonzalez, the company’ executive sub director, said in a statement that he is committed to restoring power to everyone but that blocking crews would only delay those efforts.

More than 33,000 power customers across Puerto Rico remain in the dark, including Jimenez, who said he has spent hundreds of dollars to run a small generator to help keep his relatives alive.

Jimenez is caring for his 97-year-old grandmother, who is bedridden and relies on an oxygen tank, as well as for his elderly parents. His mother relies on refrigerated insulin.

The family has been without power since Hurricane Irma, which brushed past Puerto Rico’s northeastern coast as a Category 5 storm Sept. 6. Maria then hit the island Sept. 20 as a Category 4 storm, killing dozens of people and causing more than an estimated $100 billion in damage.

“People are not doing well,” Las Piedras Mayor Miguel Lopez told The Associated Press, noting that there are many elderly people in his town. “They are suffering.”

The mayors of rural towns across Puerto Rico recently complained that they remain largely forgotten, prompting the island’s Senate president on Monday to order agencies such as the power company as well as Puerto Rico’s department of transportation and housing authority to submit a restoration plan and a timetable to meet the mayors’ needs.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which is overseeing federal power restoration efforts on the island, has said they expect to restore power to everyone by late May. Many remain wary of that timetable, including federal legislators who have requested that the agency’s mission be extended as they note that the Atlantic hurricane seasons starts June 1.

Henderson the Rain King By Saul BellowL. EUGENE HENDERSON, a multimillionaire by trade and a pathetic, swaggering clown by nature, reached an imaginary point of no return when he was 55 years old and felt that he had to go to Africa. His incessant follies, his alcoholism (he was often drunk before lunch) and his mordant discontent were more than he could bear. Henderson was “moody, rough, tyrannical and probably mad.” But he was bored. He was unhappy. Raising pigs, learning to play the violin, doing hard physical labor on his estate near Danbury–nothing could soothe his tedium vitae and general agony of spirit. Henderson was a champion sufferer, a fabulously strong giant of a man with a sentimental heart and no common sense whatever. He is the hero and narrator of “Henderson the Rain King,” a peculiar, prolix and exasperating novel by Saul Bellow.

Saul Bellow is a talented and ambitious writer best known for his “The Adventures of Augie March,” which was published six years ago. The comic extravaganza about the absurdities and trials of modern life was also written in the first person by a narrator a trifle touched in the head. But rhapsodic, tedious and stupefying as “Augie” often was, it was also intermittently funny and spangled with examples of Mr. Bellow’s richly inventive imagination. As much cannot be said for “Henderson the Rain King,” which is an unsuccessful experiment, noble in purpose but dismal in result.

Threefold Wellspring of Prose

“Henderson the Rain King” contains three major elements: grotesque comedy, which hardly ever seems comic; fantasy and adventure in Central Africa, an Africa deliberately distorted so far from reality that one half expects to meet Tarzan and his faithful Waziri on any page, and a solemn quest for “the great principles of life”–for spiritual peace, happiness and communion with truth and deity. All three elements are mixed thoroughly together, with Henderson writing a supercharged prose unlike anything ever recorded in print before, with conversations between

Henderson and various black characters so stiff, portentous and pompous they pass all understanding and with a heavy-breathing mysticism that glorifies life, love and nature to very little purpose. Henderson, wandering around Africa lamenting his sins and weeping copiously, performing feats of strength and being hailed as the sacred Rain King of a primitive tribe, sees himself (one suspects) not only as a comic figure, but also as a heroic one. A Don Quixote, perhaps, or even a Captain Ahab. If not quite that prodigious, at least as a rebel against modern materialism and a voice crying in a fanciful wilderness for more love of nature and more love of man.

No one would wish to criticize so commendable a lesson. But many readers will probably conclude that Mr. Bellow has tried to convey it in an unfortunate form. His African background and his melodramatic adventures are not intended to be realistic. But somehow they can’t be accepted as either fantasy or allegory. Too often they just seem silly. And Henderson himself is not an interesting character. It may well be that he actually resembles other wastrels who have tried to escape from themselves on expeditions to far places, but, for all his bluster and ego, all his kindness and humility, all his recondite references to art, literature and history, Henderson remains only a bore cursed with the most embarrassing flow of fancy talk in a library of recent fiction. Henderson’s ravings are almost enough to make one yearn for Tarzan’s subhuman dialogue (“I Tarzan. You Jane.”).

Apotheosis of Fatuous Egotism

When Gene Henderson, a tough guy but “highly mediumistic and attuned,” met the wise Queen of the Arnewi he felt inspired and sang her a few bars from Handel’s “Messiah.” After he had defeated Itelo, Prince of the Arnewi, in a wrestling match he said:

“You know, you are really a stronger fellow, than I am. I am strong all right, but it’s the wrong kind of strength; it’s coarse, because I’m desperate.* * *Look, take it from me. If I tried to explain in detail it would be months and months before you even got a glimmer of what gives. My soul is like a pawnshop. I mean it’s filled with unredeemed pleasures, old clarinets, and cameras, and moth-eaten fur. But let’s not get into a debate over it. I am only trying to tell you how you make me feel out here in this tribe. You’re great, Itelo. I love you. I love the old lady, too. In fact you’re all pretty damned swell, and I’ll get rid of those frogs for you if I have to lay down my life to do it.”

Henderson was still fairly calm and reasonable at this point. Later, when he had become Rain King of the Wariri and a spiritual disciple of King Dahfu, his and the King’s conversations attain a peak of sublimely serious nonsense. The King’s explaining to Henderson why he should make himself as much like a lion as possible and why he should roar as loud as a lion is an episode I will not soon forget. But I don’t see any point in remembering it and doubt if many others will.

Federal grants will take long to help Puerto Rico’s recovery – Caribbean Business

Federal grants will take long to help Puerto Rico’s recovery

By Eva Lloréns Vélez on April 23, 2018

Editor’s note: This story first appeared Thursday, in the April 19-25, 2018, issue of Caribbean Business.

It will take “many months” for Puerto Rico’s $1.5 billion disaster recovery (DR) grant awarded in February and $18.5 billion in grants announced April 10 to repair hurricane-damaged homes, businesses and the power grid to enter the local economy.

The $1.5 billion grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) in February is expected to filter into the local economy during the last quarter of 2018. Last week, the local Housing Department turned over to HUD a management plan spelling out how the agency would control the funds to prevent abuse, duplication and fraud, said Dennis González, deputy secretary of the Puerto Rico Housing Department. On May 9, the local agency must turn in an action plan providing the specifics on how it will use these funds. The plan must receive public input before HUD certifies it in June. After that, the process begins to disburse the money into the local economy.

Regarding the $18.5 billion in grants, which were assigned through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, HUD spokesman Brian Sullivan told Caribbean Business that two Federal Register notices are to be issued to provide guidelines on how the money should be spent. One notice is to spell out how $10.1 billion from these funds must be used to address remaining unmet needs created from 2017’s major disasters, including hurricanes Irma and Maria. The second notice will address the use of the remaining $8.29 billion to support mitigation activities among CDBG-DR grantees. Both documents spell out deadlines for local planning officials to submit DR plans of action and other documentation to disburse the funds.

“The notices sort of spell out the number of activities that will be covered. So, part of the money is used to recover from previous storms and the other part is to help make places stronger for future events,” he said.

Money for unmet needs, however, generally support DR activities such as home rebuilding, business assistance, economic revitalization and infrastructure repair.

Funds for mitigation activities may include home buyouts, raising homes, moving communities and rebuilding a resilient electric grid, he said.

Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico Sept. 20 and caused more than $100 billion in damages. It destroyed about 70,000 homes and damaged another 300,000.

“These funds are crucial present our vision for the new, more resilient Puerto Rico that we want to construct for our future generations,” said Gov. Ricard Rosselló in a statement following HUD’s April 10 announcement. The $18.5 billion was included in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018, which was signed into law Feb. 9. Of that money, $2 billion will be set aside for making the island’s electric grid more resilient.

On the other hand, the $1.5 billion grant was part of a bill signed into law Sept. 8 by President Trump that provided a total of $7.4 billion in CDBG-DR funds.

González acknowledged that by the time the money goes into the economy, Puerto Rico will be in the middle of the 2018 hurricane season, which runs June 1 to Nov. 30, but assured the island is ready for a major storm. He said the funds are the last resort after other money, such as from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and private insurance, is used up.

HUD’s Sullivan said that after a major storm like Maria, “people need the money last week, and I get it, but we have to have a planning process” because the funds are for a long-term recovery process. “This money is the last bit of federal money. It is not the second nor the third. It is the last money for unmet needs. It is for the months and years to come,” Sullivan said.

How will Puerto Rico spend the $1.5 billion, according to its plan? According to HUD, about $1.2 billion of the fund must be spent on recovery, restoration of infrastructure and housing, and economic revitalization in the areas most impacted and distressed, including Adjuntas, Aguada, Aguadilla, Aguas Buenas, Aibonito, Añasco, Arecibo, Arroyo, Barceloneta, Barranquitas, Bayamón, Caguas, Camuy, Canóvanas, Carolina, Cataño, Cayey, Ciales, Cidra, Coamo, Comerío, Corozal, Dorado, Fajardo, Guayama, Guaynabo, Gurabo, Hatillo, Humacao, Isabela, Juana Díaz, Juncos, Lares, Las Piedras, Loíza, Manatí, Maunabo, Mayagüez, Moca, Morovis, Naguabo, Naranjito, Orocovis, Patillas, Ponce, Río Grande, Salinas, San Juan, San Lorenzo, San Sebastián, Santa Isabel, Toa Alta, Toa Baja, Trujillo Alto, Utuado, Vega Alta, Vega Baja, Villalba, Yabucoa, and Yauco.

González said the action plan for the $1.5 billion was prepared using input from mayors and nonprofit groups, as well as from numerous public hearings. He said once the action plan is made public in May, the agency is required to receive more public input before HUD approves the final plan in June.

By August, the first bids to hire companies for contracts will be sent out.

Concerns among builders

Stephen Spears, president of the Associated General Contractors Puerto Rico Chapter, says the funds were encouraging news, and the fact the local Housing Department was working with HUD to collect information and disburse funds will ensure local contractors will have a fair chance to obtain grants to perform work.

New York power experts headed to Puerto Rico following blackout

1 Share

Following another wave of island-wide outages in Puerto Rico, Governor Andrew Cuomo says he’s sending members of the New York Power Authority to help.

Ten experts will head to the island in June to rebuild and improve the faltering power grid.

The parts of the island that do have power accidentally plunged into darkness again this week as crews tried to remove a fallen tower.

Spectrum News was on location in south central Puerto Rico just days before the massive outage.

Crews spotted heavy equipment and some “Cobra” vehicles in the area where an excavator reportedly toppled over some lines, causing the outage.

Cuomo says the real problem is that federal disaster assistance in Puerto Rico has been inadequate since day one.

“I know what this country can do when it wants to help in disaster assistance and recovery. I can tell you we are not doing what we have done in the past. This effort is not of the same magnitude and commitment of what this country has done in the past,” Cuomo said.

Governor Cuomo will also head back to Puerto Rico to assess the damage on April 29.

Cuomo said that CUNY and SUNY students will have a chance to do volunteer work on the island for college credit.

Groups, government clash over accurate stats in Puerto Rico

1 Share

As Puerto Rico recovers from Hurricane Maria’s destruction, the independent agency tasked with guaranteeing openly accessible and reliable public data may soon cease to exist as its own entity.

The Puerto Rico Institute of Statistics, or PRIS, the autonomous agency in charge of monitoring and ensuring accurate data collection separate from government and political pressures, has been fighting multiple dismantling attempts and is not part of a task force created to examine hurricane-related deaths.

Puerto Rico’s legislature approved Gov. Ricardo Rosselló’s plan to incorporate PRIS under the administration’s Department of Economic Development and Commerce, where all the data collection would be consolidated and outsourced — arguing the move will save millions of dollars.

Mario Marazzi, PRIS’ executive director and a former Federal Reserve research economist, told NBC News that he has told the government he’s willing to merge some data collection processes — just not at the cost of losing the institute’s autonomy. To him, PRIS’ consolidation under another agency “makes no sense” because it risks the institute’s ability to remain impartial.

Ramón Rosario, Puerto Rico’s public affairs secretary, said that the Rosselló administration believes that relying on outside entities for data collection is the best way to assure an unbiased, credible process.

Rosario did not clarify how the administration plans to ensure that data collection processes remain transparent and open to the public, even if it’s eventually outsourced.

The consolidation plan was met with swift criticism from scientists, advocacy groups and lawmakers — including the American Statistical Association and 15 members of the U.S. Congress who, in a letter, expressed bipartisan support for PRIS’ independence and Puerto Rico’s “need for public, independent and unbiased data.”

An independent nonpartisan board of directors oversees PRIS, which collects data gathered by local government agencies, verifies their data-reporting methods and publishes it in a open source way.

Before the consolidation plan, Rosselló replaced four of the seven PRIS executive board members in July 2017— citing a history of “incorrect” numbers. PRIS was created in 2007 in reaction to decades of data-reporting issues.

“The institute has had two attacks. That was the first one,” said Cecille Blondet, director of Espacios Abiertosa nonprofit organization in Puerto Rico that promotes government transparency and accountability.

PRIS took the case to court, and eight months later, a judge determined that Rosselló had no authority to replace PRIS’ board. This allowed them to resume operations in March with members of the original board, but the Rosselló administration appealed the decision. The case is pending.

The second “attack,” Blondet said, is the now-approved plan to consolidate PRIS — which is set to move forward despite pushback from Puerto Rico’s Financial Oversight and Management Board(FOMB) and the PROMESA Congressional Task Force, which oversee Puerto Rico’s fiscal recovery. The New York Federal Reserve has also stressed the importance of PRIS’ autonomy in multiple letters, reports and recommendations dating as far back as 2012.

Rosario said that the administration does not think its obligation is to these entities.

“What we’re doing here is fulfilling a campaign promise from the governor to increase transparency and restore our government’s credibility,” said Rosario.

Moves to dissolve PRIS come after Rosselló signed an executive order during his first month in office, pledging his commitment to increase transparency.

Questions about deadly hurricane’s toll

Maria’s current official death toll is 64, even though reports from Puerto Rican investigative journalistsand major U.S. news organizations have put it at nearly 1,000.

The administration relied primarily on Police Department numbers, which aren’t enough to draw a comprehensive picture of the aftermath because they only account for deaths directly related to the hurricane, explained Marazzi.

“For example, if hurricane winds knocked a tree down, killing a person — that’s hurricane related,” he said.

While police numbers are a start, an epidemiological study is necessary to officially account for indirect deaths such as medical complications related to a lack of power.

“There’s a need to do this study,” Marazzi clarified. “That study does not use a public safety standard, but a public health one.”

Marazzi acknowledges PRIS was unable to be involved in this process because of the ongoing efforts from the Puerto Rican government to dismantle it. Consequently, Puerto Rican officials left PRIS out of the task force designed to examine hurricane-related deaths. According to George Washington University, the task force’s leaders, an epidemiological study is currently underway.

While recovering from the hurricane, Puerto Rico has been grappling with a decade-long financial crisis that spotlighted a need for proper statistics and transparency. As a way to solve such needs, the New York Fed recommended Puerto Rico “strengthen the mandate and capacity” of PRIS.

In their most recent fiscal plan, Puerto Rico’s current government cites data-reliability problems from previous administrations as a cause of the island’s current $72 billion public debt — but the entities overseeing such fiscal issues have a hard time working collaboratively.

The Rosselló administration has not taken up any of the recommendations to keep PRIS as an independent entity because, according to Rosario, it sees PRIS as a contributor to current data reliability issues.

Critics of the plan see it differently. “This is an issue of power: Whoever controls the information controls the power,” Blondet said.

The government’s distrust led Puerto Rico’s fiscal agency AAFAF, which oversees various government agencies’ spending, to ask PRIS for some already public financial information and for access to monitor all their bank accounts.

Although PRIS believes AAFAF was overreaching their authority over them, the institute said it granted the access to AAFAF and “any natural or legal person that requests this information” in order to “continue to serve as a model for transparency.”

In between these transparency disputes, organizations like Espacios Abiertos are insisting that civilians have access to information used to determine their economic future. They asked AAFAF for the raw data used to draft the fiscal plan that would determine how the island pays for the massive public debt. AAFAF, the main author of these reports, declined to do so.

After Hurricane Maria, AM radio makes a comeback in Puerto Rico

“If Maria was going to be the monster everyone was predicting,” says Carolina Rodriguez Plaza, the news team’s production manager, “we knew the power could be cut off for a long time. We decided to shut down the station and send everyone home.”

Plaza told her team of 12 reporters not to worry, their salaries would be paid during the downtime and their jobs would be waiting for them when broadcasting resumed. Plaza retreated to her parents’ home, where she spent the night of the hurricane watching updates about the storm on cable TV. Then, as happened in homes across Puerto Rico, the lights flickered and the power went out. Hurricane Maria’s 150-mile-per-hour winds toppled power lines and torrential rains grounded out the island’s power grid.

Desperate for news about the disaster befalling her island, Plaza turned on a battery-powered radio and found that a local radio station, WKJB 710 AM, was maintaining its broadcast. The station’s managers had learned a lesson about disaster preparedness in 1998, when Hurricane Georges blew down their radio antenna and cut off the power. Since then, staff had equipped the station with a backup power generator and a reinforced antenna that could withstand hurricane-force winds.

“Maria erased the world of journalism in Puerto Rico,” Plaza says. “It reemerged in a new form, with radio playing an important role.”

To Plaza’s surprise, WKJB was being run by a motley crew of volunteer DJs. They called themselves “The Night Crew” and their improvised program was equal parts news program, variety show, and music channel. The DJs even took call-ins from listeners whose landline telephones still worked despite the power outage. Since the night of Hurricane Maria, “The Night Crew” has aired every night, raising the volunteer DJs to the status of folk heroes in Mayagüez.

“WKJB was a light on Puerto Rico’s darkest night,” Plaza says. “I told myself: Carolina, you have a moral duty to produce news for the people. I asked my father to take me to the station because I wanted to go on the air and rally my team.”

One lesson from the 2017 hurricane season, the most expensive in history, was to show the valuable role AM radio plays as a nexus for coordinated news reporting during a disaster event. WKJB wasn’t the only station to continue broadcasting through Hurricane Maria. In San Juan, WKAQ-AM stayed on the air, pausing momentarily when the wind ripped away part of the roof. And on the US mainland, AM radio stations provided real-time news coverage of the hurricanes that struck Texas, in August 2017, and Florida, in September.

“I told myself: Carolina, you have a moral duty to produce news for the people. I asked my father to take me to the station…”

“While Hurricanes Irma and Harvey wreaked their greatest damage,” Rich Appel wrote in a September 2017 story for Billboard, “most stations in their path not only quickly shifted from regular programming to that solely focused on storm coverage, but also used other available channels such as social media to help those in trouble, and sent recovery teams to parking lots and damaged homes to bring relief where it was needed most.”

With a machete in their car for chopping through downed branches, Plaza and her father drove through storm-battered Mayagüez on their way to the WKJB studio. They arrived to find that the station was being used for more than just broadcasting the news. It was serving as a distribution center for donated supplies and as a clinic for people with small injuries. Even the Mayagüez police had set up shop because their dispatch office had lost power.

Plaza asked the station’s manager, Ada Ramos, if she could volunteer as host of a news program. Ramos knew of Plaza’s reporting at WORA-TV and liked the idea of bringing her expertise as a street reporter to the airwaves of WKJB. Plaza then took a turn at the microphone and broadcast an all-points-bulletin for her TV broadcast team to report to the radio studio.

“I hope you and your families are okay, and that you’ve suffered no major damages to your homes,” Plaza said. “We are a news team and we can make a difference. There are stories that need to be told during this historic moment. Puerto Rico needs you.”

After the hurricane, Puerto Rico’s journalism industry was left in disarray. To cope with the lack of power and poor communication channels on the island, journalists pooled resources and formed reporting collaboratives. In San Juan, the offices of GFR Media, publisher of three major newspapers created a reporting hub for journalists traveling to the island to cover the disaster. In addition to producing its own in-depth coverage, GFR Media made it possible for journalists from The New York TimesWashington Post, and Huffington Post to report on Hurricane Maria.

Meanwhile, at the San Juan Convention Center, command center for the government’s emergency response effort, journalists pushed tables together to create impromptu newsrooms. And in the interior of the country, reporters pooled resources—satellite phones, solar charges, and WiFi hubs donated by the National Association of Hispanic Journalists as part of its #ConnectPuertoRico campaign.

“Bottom line is, if you take away a community member’s access to information, to communication, you eliminate the ability to connect, mobilize, and provide proper response in the wake of a disaster,” NAHJ’s president Brandon Benavides said in an interview with Mediashift in January.

Puerto Rico was already suffering from an economic recession, and the journalism industry there was already struggling to be profitable. The storm dealt a significant blow. GFR Media  laid of 59 employeesat its two largest newspapers, El Nuevo Día and Primera Hora, on October 26, 2017. And Plaza knew of at least 40 more print and television journalists who lost their jobs on the west coast of Puerto Rico.

“Maria served as a moment of contraction in the news industry,” says Plaza. “Meanwhile, AM radio emerged even stronger. Young people in the under-35 demographic are listening to radio news for the first time in their lives. Radios are at the center of a culture shift. Neighbors sit together drinking coffee and listening to the news.”

“Maria served as a moment of contraction in the news industry,” says Plaza. “Meanwhile, AM radio emerged even stronger. Young people in the under-35 demographic are listening to radio news for the first time in their lives.”

According to The Miami Heraldincreased radio listenership resulted in an advertising boom. At Wapa Radio, an AM station based in San Juan, advertising went up by 300 percent the month following Maria. At Radio Isla, an AM station also broadcasting in San Juan, commercial breaks doubled in length from four to eight minutes between pre- and post-Maria. And in January, Insider Radio reported the record-setting sale of an FM translator tower in Mayagüez for $500,000. Not only was it the highest price ever paid for a translator in Puerto Rico, it ranked as the second largest sale of its kind in the US over the past year.

“Contrary to predictions and global trends in the industry, radio proved itself in this circumstance to be vital,” Rafael López of Radio Isla told The Miami Herald. “It became something of a first responder and the first line of help.”

On the day after the storm, when Plaza’s announcement went out on the airwaves of WKJB 710 AM, several reporters either came to the station or sent word of their willingness to volunteer. Among them was veteran news reporter Julio Víctor Ramírez-Ferrer, editor-in-chief of La Calle Digital, a Spanish-language news website knocked offline by the power outage. Plaza and Ramirez-Ferrer agreed to co-host a show they would eventually name “Con Base y Fundamento,” which translates roughly to “The Basics and Fundamentals.” A government official used the phrase in an interview with them about an education policy. “I’ll explain it to you in the most basic and fundamental of terms,” he’d said, using a tone that struck Plaza and Ramirez-Ferrer as condescending and pedantic.

“It’s an inside joke,” Plaza says. “We want our show to hold people in power responsible for their actions.”

They organized teams of volunteer reporters into regional beats. The reporters found troves of stories on the streets of Mayagüez in need of coverage. The backup power supply at the county morgue was faltering, threatening to thaw 16 bodies in the refrigerated cooler. The local hospital had a shortage of oxygen tanks and purified water. A large number of homes destroyed by the storm weren’t built according to code. The county’s engineering department was abusing its authority to declare some public schools unsafe to inhabit, to justify shutting them down to save money.

“A lot of these stories were issues that were already going on in Puerto Rico,” says Plaza. “Hurricane Maria brought them to the surface.”

Thirty-three days after the storm, the power was turned back on at WORA-TV. Plaza and her team returned to their jobs producing the evening news program. And the return of power to Mayagüez had also allowed Ramirez-Ferrer to bring La Calle Digital back online.

Today, as hurricane season approaches again, Plaza and Ramirez-Ferrer continue co-hosting their hour-long program, Monday through Friday, on WKJB 710 AM. They use the channel to expand the reach of the reporting they do for their respective news organizations. Hurricane Maria taught them that, for journalists living in disaster-prone regions, it’s important for news organizations to collaborate and to embrace communication mediums once thought obsolete.

“When the power goes out,” Plaza says, “a $5 transistor radio is more valuable than a smartphone.”

The Puerto Rico Family Office that Bought a Wind Farm

1 Share

After years of building an industrial real estate business in Puerto Rico, the older members of Raoul Slavin Juliá’s family were ready to sell their assets and retire. It was 2004, years before the island would face the back-to-back-to-back blows of bankruptcy and two destructive hurricanes, but it seemed like a good time to have a bit of liquidity.

“We looked around and said: What now?” Slavin Juliá, 46, remembers. What he saw on the island were crippling electricity costs and dependency on fossil fuels. The answer to his question, he eventually determined, was blowing all around him. His family would soon start on a journey to become builders and owners of wind farms in Puerto Rico and later the mainland U.S.

When he first looked for investment opportunities, in 2007, he discovered why wind farm ownership was the province of utilities: The education process takes years. Due diligence resembles that of industrial real estate, but clean-power plants often require a different sort of financial and regulatory sophistication. “I have never run across another family office competing” for a wind farm, says Slavin Juliá, who is a director of single-family office Treehouse Investments LLC. (The family’s concern about sea levels rising from climate change inspired them to name the business after an elevated house, he says.) The family office owns wind farms through subsidiary Aspenall Energies LLC.

Slavin Juliá’s family built its first wind farm in 2009, a two-turbine facility to power a local Bacardi rum factory. With that success, it looked a couple of years later for opportunities on the U.S. mainland, opting to purchase a newly completed farm for its first utility-scale project. “A family entering now in any U.S. state will find there is a rigorous framework, with a few exceptions,” Slavin Juliá says.

Why did Slavin Juliá’s family choose wind? Well, first, there’s the broad appeal of renewables. Operating wind and solar farms typically benefit from long-term contracts with investment-grade utilities. They tend to perform well, so there’s a high probability of steady, decadeslong revenue. It’s the type of investment that’s now attracting institutional investors such as pension funds and insurers—and appeals to climate-focused family offices such as Treehouse. “If you expect a decent rate of return and your vision is multigenerational, then those two perspectives coincide,” Slavin Juliá says.

The reason for investing in wind instead of solar was mostly situational. Treehouse would consider solar today, he says. In the mid-2000s, however, solar had yet to crack the U.S. mainstream and faced high insurance costs in hurricane-prone Puerto Rico, says Anne Amanda Bangasser, a Treehouse director and Slavin Juliá’s sister-in-law.

One early advantage Treehouse had in getting into the wind business was the specific expertise family members had to handle much of an operating plant’s needs. Slavin Juliá’s background is in law, Bangasser is an engineer, and Slavin Juliá’s wife is an accountant. Still, when the family first decided to invest in a utility-scale wind farm, they didn’t feel comfortable enough to build one from scratch and wanted something that was already “spinning,” Slavin Juliá says. “We thought: Let’s have our first project be one that has already gone through the construction process,” he says. “That way, we can be an asset owner and we can get some experience.”

This story appears in the Q2 2018 Family Offices special report from Bloomberg Markets.

Over the years, Treehouse built up a renewables network. Family members attended trade shows and engaged consultants in the years they spent building the Puerto Rico wind farm and planning others there. They had something specific in mind: a modest-size utility-scale farm that employed members of the community benefiting from it. They vetted projects in the U.S. and even Europe. Eventually a consultant referred them to a competitive auction for a 20-megawatt farm in Minnesota that had been in operation for several years.

The family won the farm and closed the deal in 2015. They tended to the farm for a while before they felt ready to break ground and actually construct a utility-scale plant. They have since built a 13MW farm in Minnesota and are erecting a 30MW project in Nebraska.

Owning—but not operating—a wind farm can be very desirable to passive investors, given the promised cash flows. But for those who want to build a U.S. project, they’ll need to find a plot of land, obtain permits and address typical Nimby pushback, select a turbine manufacturer and contractor, and arrange financing. That last part can be the trickiest, as financing incentives for renewables in the U.S. rely on esoteric lines of tax code that may create complications for small developers.

For its next investment, Treehouse, which now has offices in New York and Minneapolis, is looking at repowering older wind farms. This involves upgrading turbines to give plants built in the 1990s and early 2000s a second life. Looking back, Slavin Juliá says building up Treehouse’s portfolio wasn’t easy, but he sees wind farms as one of the best tangible investments a family office can own. “Definitely better than yachts, I can assure you,” he says.

El asesinato de una persona en Vega Alta dejó en 214 el saldo de muertes por crímenes violentos que la Policía de Puerto Rico investiga en lo que va del 2018, lo que representa un aumento de 12 víctimas en comparación al mismo período en el 2017.

Jonathan Xavier Rosario, de 29 años, falleció el viernes luego de ser baleado frente al paseo Los Veteranos en la calle Teodomiro Ramírez de Vega Alta. De acuerdo a la información preliminar recopilada por la Policía, Rosario fue baleado por una persona con la que se enfrascó en una discusión.

Rosario falleció en el Centro de Diagnóstico y Tratamiento (CDT) de Vega Alta. La agente Denisse Ortiz, de la División de Homicidios del Centro de Investigaciones Criminales (CIC) de Vega Baja, junto con el fiscal José Sagardía, están a cargo de la investigación.

Junto con el tiroteo registrado en la madrugada del viernes frente al negocio “La Jibarita” en Mayagüez, en el que murió una persona y otras 10 resultaron heridas, son 214 los ciudadanos asesinados en lo que va del año.

La Policía informó que, hasta el momento, los diez heridos se encuentran en condición estable y que los investigadores comenzaron el proceso de recopilar pietaje de las cámaras de seguridad cercanas al lugar de la balacera.

Por su parte, el número de muertes a causa de accidentes de tránsito también registró un leve aumento en comparación al mismo período el año pasado. Cuatro personas fallecieron durante el fin de semana debido a accidentes con vehículos de motor, lo que elevó a 84 el total de víctimas en lo que va del año. Para abril del año pasado la Policía investigaba 81 fatalidades.

Report Says Fox News Allows Putin Regime to Edit Content in Latvia

1 Share

A few days ago, I addressed the troubling issue of Sean Hannity, the Fox News star, and his hidden ties to the Trump administration. With the revelation that Hannity shares an attorney with the president—namely the disgraced Michael Cohen, who’s now a key player in the Department of Justice’s investigation of the White House and its secret Kremlin links—it’s high time to ask exactly what sort of “journalism” Hannity is pushing at Fox News.

Moreover, when coupled with my previous revelations of Hannity’s “reporting” of rancid disinformation scripted by Russian intelligence as “news,” plus his clandestine relationship with WikiLeaks—said by President Donald Trump’s own CIA director to be a Kremlin front—Fox News is making itself a player not just in the Trump administration, but a target of any fair and balanced investigation of it. As I stated:

With the revelation that Cohen has been Hannity’s attorney, in some fashion that neither of them wished to disclose, it is even more imperative that Fox News explain why it keeps a Kremlin propagandist without any semblance of professional ethics on the air. If they fail to do so, that network is exposing itself to counterintelligence scrutiny as well.

To the surprise of nobody who has observed that network in action, Fox News quickly decided that Hannity’s ethical missteps regarding Cohen were no big deal. Per its statement on the case: “We have reviewed the matter and spoken to Sean and he continues to have our full support.” Nevertheless, the network’s own media analyst explained that Hannity was clearly in the wrong, ethically speaking, by commenting many times on-air about Cohen, invariably favorably, without divulging his relationship with him.

Other reports are even less favorable to the network and its ethical standards, rather lack thereof. Vanity Fair this week quoted anonymous staffers at the network about what it termed the Hannity-induced “crisis”: “This is the most embarrassing thing I’ve ever seen,” stated one. Another added, “This is bad. It violates every rule of journalism.”

That said, it’s not difficult to divine why Hannity remains on the air. He’s a headliner, the network’s most prominent talker and nighttime draw for its pro-Trump viewers. Moreover, Hannity’s astonishingly close relationship with this White House, viewed negatively as almost a parody of “access journalism” by outsiders, seems to only bolster his position at Fox News. As The Washington Post reported this week, Hannity talks frequently with Trump, serving as a senior advisor to the Oval Office and playing a pivotal role in the administration’s media war against Trump’s enemies—above all Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his investigation of the president’s Kremlin ties. The Fox News star “basically has a desk” in the White House, explained one presidential adviser to the Post.

Normal journalism, this is not. Since I’ve castigated the mainstream media for its fawning over President Barack Obama, allowing his staff to play them like an instrument, particularly regarding foreign policy, let me add that the Hannity case outstrips even those low-points in terms of journalistic integrity. Clearly Fox News is happy to let its leading on-air personality act as a propagandist for Trump. It’s high time for the network to remove “news” from its title if Hannity is its idea of journalism.

Worse, Fox News seems untroubled by the fact that Hannity isn’t just a Trump superfan-cum-consigliere; he also has disturbing ties to the Kremlin and its agents. Since Hannity’s pushing of Russian-scripted disinformation on Americans has been reported for nearly a year, the network can’t say it didn’t know. Fox News therefore is making the unsettling—not to mention potentially politically hazardous—choice to serve as a witting cut-out for the Kremlin’s lie machine.

Perhaps there are no surprises here at all, however. This week, Latvian Public Broadcasting reported an astonishing story about how Fox News operates in their country. As unmasked by a local investigation, Russian-language versions of the network’s programming that are broadcast in Latvia aren’t merely translated; they’re edited for content in a pro-Kremlin direction. Per the report, which cites internal Fox News regulations:

Translators have to follow Russian subtitling guidelines requiring glossing over or ‘softening content’ concerning accidents, homosexual relationships, ‘anti-Russian propaganda,’ narcotics, extremist activities and suicides. For instance, the translators are instructed to ‘soften’ all negative language about the Russian military and space program, policies of the Russian president and government, while positive texts about same-sex relationships have to be made more generalized so they could be attributed to relationships of any kind.

Let’s be perfectly clear here: Fox News is requiring its content being broadcast in a country that is a member of both NATO and the European Union to be edited to be more pleasing to the regime of Vladimir Putin. This is no small matter in Latvia, a country of only two million people, more than one-quarter of whom are ethnic Russians. That minority is habitually exploited by Moscow in its propaganda aimed at NATO’s eastern frontier. For years, the Kremlin has waged an aggressive, full-spectrum information war against Latvia, attempting to foment divisions in that country by making its Russian minority feel alienated and more loyal to Moscow than to Riga. In extremis, many Latvians worry, this noxious disinformation campaign could be a precursor to an actual Russian invasion—an event that has happened several times in the small country’s history.

Fox News is unambiguously on the side of the Kremlin in this information struggle against little Latvia—and the entire Western world. It’s not just what Fox News is beaming into the Baltic states that merits scrutiny. The network’s reports on Latvia for Western audiences—for instance one last month pushed blatant Russian propaganda and cited the Centre for Research on Globalization, a notorious Kremlin disinformation front—likewise deserve investigation.

Above all, Americans should ask what Fox News’ relationship with Putin’s regime actually is. It’s one thing to allow known disinformateurs like Sean Hannity to push Russian-made lies on air; it’s even worse to give Moscow editorial control over its “reporting.” If Fox News is skewing the news in a pro-Kremlin direction for political effect in a free and democratic society like Latvia, they can do it anywhere.
