Colombia to Extradite Narco-trafficker Daniel Rendón Herrera

first_imgPolice seized CA$600,000 ($516,595) worth of narcotics, including five kilograms of cocaine, 2.7 kilograms of ecstasy and two kilograms of substances used to mix with narcotics and oxycodone pills, during searches at three residences in Edmonton. They also confiscated CA$45,000 ($37,745) in cash, two .22 caliber rifles, a .44 caliber Desert Eagle handgun, a sawed-off shotgun, thousands of bullets and several body armor suits. The Alberta Law Enforcement Response Team (ALERT) said on December 17 it has captured four suspects who were allegedly aligned with a Mexican drug cartel and Mara Salvatrucha, a street gang based in Central America also known as MS-13. The Colombian Supreme Court ruled in 2010 that Don Mario couldn’t be extradited until he took part in Colombia’s reparations process, according to the Justice and Peace Law, which provides a degree of amnesty for those who testify about what occurred during the conflict. Though he told the Justice and Peace Court what he knew about the crimes committed by numerous AUC leaders, he also admitted to trafficking narcotics and committing other crimes after he quit the AUC in 2006. In 2013, the Justice and Peace Court ruled that he could be extradited to face charges for those crimes. Additionally, in 2013, a Colombian judge sentenced El Alemán to 20 years in prison for the 2002 disappearance and murder of Marco Aurelio Osorio Manco, a farmer from the town of Dabeiba in the Department of Antioquia. However, the Colombian Supreme Court has blocked El Alemán’s extradition to the United States. On December 11, police arrested José Antonio Monterrey, the leader of the group, while he attempted to board a flight at the Edmonton International Airport. Law enforcement officers took three of his alleged associates – Peter Alan Griffon, Cody Sterling Tremblett, and Penny Sue Fleming – into custody during raids at their respective residences. Each suspect faces multiple criminal charges – among them drug possession, possession of a prohibited weapon, and careless use of a firearm. In 2010, U.S. federal law enforcement authorities named Don Mario’s brother, Freddy Rendón Herrera – a former AUC leader known as “El Alemán” – as a drug kingpin as well. The two brothers face federal narcotics importation and narco-terrorism conspiracy charges in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York pursuant to a June 2009 indictment. Rendón Herrera, also known as “Don Mario,” is wanted by the Southern District Court of New York on charges of conspiring to traffic drugs and supporting a terrorist group. He was a member of the United Self-Defense Forces of Colombia (AUC) before leaving in 2006 to start Clan Úsuga, which became one of the country’s most powerful organized crime groups. “Their presence in Alberta should be of concern to Albertans,” ALERT Inspector Darcy Strang told reporters. “Their connection to Mexican cartels and MS-13 creates a linkage to violence that is incomprehensible to most. The potential for conflict with existing crime groups is inherent in their existence.” Additionally, in 2013, a Colombian judge sentenced El Alemán to 20 years in prison for the 2002 disappearance and murder of Marco Aurelio Osorio Manco, a farmer from the town of Dabeiba in the Department of Antioquia.

Don Mario was designated a drug kingpin pursuant to the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act by U.S. President Barack Obama in May 2009. He’s accused of having “extensive drug transportation networks throughout Colombia that facilitated the shipment of cocaine to the United States and Europe,” according to the U.S. Treasury Department. By Dialogo December 19, 2014 If convicted on the narcotics conspiracy charge, Don Mario faces between a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum sentence of life behind bars. He faces another 15 years in prison if he’s found guilty of supporting a foreign terrorist organization.

Students, experts develop water filtration systems

first_imgStudents have partnered with a pair of professors who recently launched a new project to confront the global water crisis, which has left nearly 800 million people without access to safe drinking water.Professor Massoud Pirbazari, a water purification expert, joined professor Thieo Hogen-Esch, as well as Hogen-Esch’s team at the USC Loker Hydrocarbon Research Institute, to help improve the water supply for people around the world deprived of access to clean water. According to Water.org, more than 3 million people die each year of water-related diseases, with nearly all of these deaths occurring in the developing world.Viv Pitter, a senior majoring in environmental engineering who worked on this initiative, said impure water has the potential to affect entire communities.“Just because you contract one disease doesn’t mean you won’t contract another. And because they are in the water, diseases can affect entire communities,” Pitter said.The current method of water purification involves running water over a thin membrane that removes impurities in the water. However, these membranes can clog frequently, requiring high-energy input and are often rendered unusable.“In order to make [the membranes] cost-effective and usable, you have to somehow scientifically modify the membrane to make them less prone to clogging and fouling,” Pirbazari said. “Even just 20 percent less energy would be very attractive to the water industries.”Pirbazari also stressed the importance of water purification other than filtration. He particularly noted desalination, the process of removing salt from the water supply.“It doesn’t have to be seawater desalination, it could be desalination for water reuse to turn it into drinking water,” Pirbazari said. “It is also for agricultural purposes. It is useful for practically everything. You can take wastewater and further treat it for irrigation.”Kirsten Rice, a senior majoring in environmental and mechanical engineering, expressed optimism at increasing the availability of water filtering technology. While working with Pirbazari, Rice was able to design a water filter constructed out of sand and gravel. In tests, the filter was able to remove nearly all of a harmful bacteria and three-quarters of the element arsenic contained in the water.With the water crisis being most serious in developing countries, Rice described the importance of creating simple mechanisms, such as her sand and gravel filter, particularly as the global population grows and water resources are further strained.“Taking something as simple as sand and gravel [is important] because it can be applied all over the world without an economic cost,” Rice said.Yet Rice also noted that simply being able to purify water is not enough to confront the water crisis.“There’s still a limited amount of water — it has to be imported,” Rice said. “There’s greater demand. We need to work on conserving water.”Pirbazari has been heavily involved in engaging undergraduate students in research. Both Pitter and Rice described their work with him on water purification as very rewarding. Rice said that Pirbazari encouraged undergraduate students to take a leading role in carrying out research.“Dr. Pirbazari wanted his undergrads to become involved in their own research. We designed our own experiments, recorded our own data and analyzed our results,” Rice said. “We worked together as a team with Dr. Pirbazari.”According to Pirbazari, it is important for youth to recognize the significance of this water crisis.“Young people really have to know this and further their understanding of this very important issue,” Pirbazari said.last_img read more

Edmonton Oilers’ Leon Draisaitl, Connor McDavid just cannot stop scoring

first_imgMORE: What makes the Draisaitl and McDavid duo so good?In fact, the pair barely post games with just one point or none; McDavid has gone only 12 games with such numbers, and Draisaitl nine — not to mention, the Cologne, Germany, native has gone scoreless in just two games through his campaign so far.As of right now, the only thing we can do is wait and see if they can keep it up. But right now, the numbers show that they’re the hottest combination the league has right now — and has seen in a long time. We’re 22 games into the 2019-20 campaign, and absolute NHL ridiculousness is in bloom in Edmonton as Oilers forwards Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl cannot stop scoring — and it makes us wonder if they really are human.The duo combined for five points in Saturday’s 5-4 overtime loss to the Dallas Stars and is now producing at 3.77 points per game, having already combined for 83 points through 22 games this season. Edmonton is also benefiting greatly, as the team leads the Pacific Division with a 13-6-3 record and 29 points on the season. “[Draisaitl’s] a fun guy to play with,” McDavid said earlier in the season of his linemate. “Obviously, he can shoot it or pass it and play any type of game you want him to play. Great teammate, we’ve played together a lot over the years and I like where our chemistry’s at.”WATCH: McDavid nets second hat trick of week, six points vs. ColoradoTheir on-ice synergy is something of a fine art, analogous to rock music that goes by the beat of a different drummer.First off, the Oilers’ captain’s performance, which combines speed, outstanding hands and vision, is helping him producing at the rate of 1.81 points per game. He has nine points over his last two games and 14 over his last five to move up the stat sheet and all the way up to second behind Draisaitl in the NHL scoring race.This season, he’s already hit the 400-point mark of his NHL career with 412 points in 309 career games, with three straight 100-point seasons. His performance thus far puts the 22-year-old on pace for a fourth-straight 100-plus point campaign with 141 points.Okay, Connor McDavid (@cmcdavid97). WHAT PLANET ARE YOU FROM? pic.twitter.com/CFtOGyIlEZ— NHL (@NHL) November 11, 2019No one’s surpassed the 140-mark since Mario Lemieux, who had 161 points in 1995-96.Now, Draisaitl. The “Deutschland Dangler” takes advantage of a lethal shot, great passing and hockey IQ shift by shift.  Some may have been wary of signing the winger to a long-term, multi-million dollar extension that pays him a hefty $8 million over eight seasons, insinuating that it was possible his success was due in large part to McDavid.He’s proven this season — and over the last few years to boot — that that’s far from the case. After registering his first 100-point season last year, his star-studded 2019-20 campaign has him at a league-leading 43 points as he also rides a 12-game point streak. Besides his Oilers counterpart, Draisaitl has 11 points over the next leading scorer in Brad Marchand, who has 32 points in 19 games heading into Saturday night.1️⃣2️⃣-game point streak has been extended for Leon Draisaitl! pic.twitter.com/mZrqSv6UY0— NHL (@NHL) November 16, 2019Draisaitl’s scoring at a rate of 1.95 points per game, which sets him up to record 160 points this season.In total, he and McDavid are on pace to combine for a grand total of 301 points this year, as the Oilers look to put past seasons of demons and disappointment behind them and potentially return to the postseason for the first time since 2016-17 — and the third time in the last 14 years.With each game that passes, many wonder if they can keep up the pace; after all, those numbers just seem. . . too high, right? Well, it’s over 25 percent through the season already, and they’re both proving capable of multi-point performances on a nightly basis.last_img read more
