first_img The arrest took place in Medellín’s Olaya Herrera Airport, when “El Matemático” was about to take a commercial flight to Cali. Colombian national Luis Fernando Otálvaro, alias “El Matemático” [The Mathematician], who is accused of introducing around 60 tons of cocaine into the United States, was arrested at an airport in the city of Medellín, the Colombian police announced. “El Matemático” is also an associate of Daniel “El Loco” [The Crazy One] Barrera, one of Colombia’s most-wanted drug traffickers, the text added. The drug shipments were transported across the Caribbean on speedboats, and the revenues obtained – calculated at 24 million dollars per ton – returned to Colombia hidden in commercial shipping containers, the police said. By Dialogo January 20, 2012center_img A New York court has requested Otálvaro’s extradition on charges of coordinating the shipment of around 60 tons of cocaine to American territory between 2004 and 2007. Fifty-seven-year-old Otálvaro belongs to an organization known as the Junta Directiva del Narcotráfico [Drug Trafficking Executive Board] and is headed by Luis Agustín Caicedo, “Don Lucho,” who is currently jailed in the United States, the police explained. Another 14 members of “El Loco” Barrera’s network sought by the United States were already arrested in November.last_img read more

When we go to the hospital we treat our nurses with respect and quite frankly so. Most high school students and college graduates would crave a position in the public sector and financial institutions. But the front desk attendance at our hotels, our bar attendants at our restaurants…are still being looked at as menial workers.He said tour guides and vendors are capable of earning more than those in the public sector and they should be respected.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest I’d say the majority of guys in Van Wert are close to half done with soybeans and maybe 5% to 10% of their corn harvested. So far for our corn there have been no quality issues. The test weight has been 58 to 61 pounds and moisture was about 20.5% the last time we ran. Every day that goes by drying corn gets a little cheaper. Hopefully we can be harvesting dry corn and putting it right in the bin.In soybeans, on the other hand, we have seen quality issues here and there — nothing that hasn’t been accepted but definitely not as good as last year. The soybean has a tarnished, brownish look. It is not in every field, though. We pretty much apply everything to our soybeans — fungicide, insecticide. After doing some research, it looks like stink bug damage. It is mind-blowing to me that it could be that because we applied insecticide but that is what it looks like. I wouldn’t leave beans in the bin for too long this year.I still think our corn is going to be knocking on the door of 200. It may not the best corn year we ever had or even better than last year, but it is excellent. The early corn hybrids definitely got hurt by the end of July heat and dryness. Later hybrids appear to be very good.On the soybean side it is rocking and rolling — unbelievable. We just harvested a 100-acre field that made an over 82-bushel average. I could barely keep up hauling it. It felt like we were hauling corn. I think in Van Wert County there will be 70 to the low-80 bushel range soybeans. The 30-inch beans we tried were about 10 bushels less than everything else. It was something we wanted to try and we probably won’t do it again.Our strip-tiller should be done today. We went out and played with it the other day and it seems like it will work and we’ll get started with that strip-tillage the next time it dries out. It is raining right now and we are hoping we don’t get much more.last_img read more

first_imgThese are some interesting times for smartphone buyers, especially those who like to make a purchase based on hardware specifics. These are interesting times because buyers no longer have to burn a hole in their pocket to be able to afford these phones.For instance, it is now possible to buy a good phone with monster specs inside at under Rs 20,000. A year or two ago, that would seem like a distant dream. Not anymore.Here are 5 monster phones you can buy under Rs 20,000:1.

first_imgTORONTO – A Toronto man who stood to inherit a multimillion-dollar aviation company was found guilty of first-degree murder in his father’s death Monday, a ruling that marked his third such conviction.Applause broke out as a judge declared Dellen Millard had carried out a planned and deliberate killing of his father, whose death was initially ruled a suicide.Wayne Millard, a wealthy 71-year-old businessman, was found dead in his bed with a bullet lodged in his brain on Nov. 29, 2012. His son had pleaded not guilty in the death but the judge hearing the case found otherwise.“I am satisfied that Dellen Millard killed his father by shooting him in the left eye as he slept,” said Justice Maureen Forestell. “I can find no theory consistent with innocence.”Millard, 33, cried softly as the decision was read out to a packed courtroom.Among those who had gathered for the ruling in the judge-alone trial were the parents of Millard’s two other victims, Toronto woman Laura Babcock and Hamilton man Tim Bosma. Babcock’s father said all three families would be forever linked as a result of Millard’s crimes.“It’s been proven that not only has the Bosmas and ourselves have lost a loved one, the Millard family must live with the fact this heinous individual murdered his own father,” Clayton Babcock said outside court. “There’ll be not a day in our lives when the loss of Laura, Tim or Wayne won’t be felt.”Crown attorney Ken Lockhart said he was grateful for the outcome of the case.“I hope that the process has brought (the families) some kind of closure,” he said.Wayne Millard’s death was Dellen Millard’s second murder.He had killed Babcock, a 24-year-old woman he had been seeing, months earlier in July 2012. Six months after his father’s death, Millard killed Bosma after taking the 32-year-old man’s truck for a test drive.Millard’s friend, Mark Smich, was also convicted of first-degree murder for the Babcock and Bosma slayings. The pair are serving life in prison with no chance for parole for 50 years for those murders.Police re-opened the case of Wayne Millard’s death after arresting the younger Millard for Bosma’s killing.The latest trial unfolded in June without a jury. The Attorney General granted a defence request for a judge-alone proceeding after agreeing that Dellen Millard’s notoriety, given the Bosma and Babcock murders, would make it impossible to find fair jurors.Prosecutors alleged Millard killed his father because millions in potential inheritance money was being squandered on a new aviation business.Forestell rejected significant parts of the Crown’s case, including the motive for money, saying it played no role in her decision. Instead, she found the case turned on a lie Millard told investigators after his father’s death.The trial heard Millard told police he found his father dead in bed around 6 p.m. on Nov. 29, 2012. He said he last saw his father alive around noon the day before and had then stayed the night at Smich’s house. But phone records indicated that one of Millard’s phones moved from Smich’s house around 1 a.m. on Nov. 29, 2012, to his father’s home where it stayed until shortly after 6 a.m.“I do not believe the statement of Dellen Millard that he stayed at Mark’s,” Forestell said. “I find it was fabricated to conceal he was involved in the death of his father.”Forestell also said Millard created a false alibi after leaving his truck, credit card and his other phone at Smich’s house.The trial also heard that Dellen Millard, who did not testify in his own defence, bought a handgun found next to his father’s body from a weapons dealer — evidence Forestell accepted.The defence had argued Wayne Millard’s death was a suicide.Dellen Millard told police his father was depressed, an alcoholic and under a tremendous amount of stress because of his efforts to turn around the family’s aviation business, court heard.“He carried some great sadness with him throughout life that I never knew — he never wanted to share that with me,” Dellen Millard told police in an interview played in court.Wayne Millard had inherited the family aviation business, Millardair, from his father, Carl Millard, in 2006. It had been launched as a cargo carrier in 1963 and later flew passengers before going bankrupt in 1990, court heard.The company then rented out aircraft hangars at Toronto’s Pearson airport until 2010, when Wayne Millard moved into the maintenance, repair and overhaul business and built a massive, multimillion-dollar hangar at the Region of Waterloo International Airport by 2012.The trial heard that Dellen Millard blamed his father for the company’s financial issues.“The last time I spoke to him, I told him the company’s financial troubles were his doing and that he was a failure,” Millard wrote in a text to his girlfriend that was presented in court. “Usually he tells me not to worry. But this time he said maybe I was right.”Days after his father’s death, Dellen Millard fired everyone at Millardair and wound the business down, court heard.A sentencing hearing for Millard is scheduled for Nov. 16. The Crown said it will seek an additional 25 years of parole ineligibility for Millard in his father’s death.last_img read more
