US-Russia World Hockey Semi

first_imgPRAGUE — Tyler Seguin notched a hat trick as Canada cruised past Belarus 9-0, while Evgeni Malkin scored twice to lift titleholder Russia over Sweden 5-3 in the quarterfinals of the ice hockey world championship on May 14.In Ostrava, Ben Smith and Charlie Coyle scored 57 seconds apart as the United States rallied for a 3-1 victory over Switzerland, and lined up Russia in the semifinals on May 15.Russia lost to the U.S. 4-2 in the group stage, and forward Viktor Tikhonov said they were looking forward to the rematch, with Alexander Ovechkin expected after his NHL playoffs ended.“It’s what we wanted, because every time you lose to someone you always want to prove that you can come back and beat them,” Tikhonov said.Canada finally ended a sequence of losing in the quarterfinals at five consecutive worlds, but will have to go through the hosts next after the Czech Republic eliminated last year’s runner-up, Finland, 5-3.Veteran Jaromir Jagr tied the game at 2 in the middle period with a backhand on a power play, and skated around the net to find a gap around Finn goalkeeper Pekka Rinne with 4:30 left in the final frame.The Czechs downplayed their chances of a first world title since 2010.“We’re under huge pressure,” Jagr said. “The fans consider us better than Canada. They’re excellent players. It could be they’ll never have such a great team at the worlds again. If they play their best, we have little chance. We can’t give them a bit of ice without fighting.”With his three, Seguin joined Sweden’s Filip Forsberg at the top of the worlds’ scoring chart with eight goals.“We won by the margin because we kept playing our game,” Seguin said. “We’re looking forward to the semifinal match.”Ryan O’Reilly and Brent Burns scored two goals apiece and added an assist, and Tyler Ennis and Jason Spezza had a goal each, as Canada hunts its 25th title. It last won in 2007, and has been waiting for a medal since winning silver in 2009.The Sidney Crosby-led Canadians have eight wins from eight games, and 58 goals, the most they have scored since 1962.“It’s nice to put ourselves in a position to get to the finals,” Crosby said. “The important thing is to get better every game, and at this point you’ve got to be at your best. It’s win or go home, so we did a good job today.”Goaltender Mike Smith stopped 24 shots for his first shutout at the tournament. “It was just a bonus,” Smith said. “The way they play in front of me is the most important.”Also in Ostrava, Malkin scored the winner just 26 seconds after Loui Eriksson tied it for Sweden at 3-3 with 5:45 remaining in regulation. Vladimir Tarasenko added an empty net goal in the last minute, as Russia knocked out Sweden for the second year running.Earlier, Sergei Mozyakin and Sergei Shirokov scored first-period goals, and Malkin got the puck past goalie Jhonas Enroth 48 seconds into the second period. He also had an assist.Sweden answered with goals from John Klingberg in the second, and Anton Lander in the third.Smith tied the game for the Americans with a wrist shot 10:17 into the second period, and Coyle deflected in a slap shot by defensemen Seth Jones for the go-ahead goal.“It was a big minute and a big boost for all the team,” teammate Trevor Lewis said.Defenseman Jake Gardiner scored the third with a wrist shot midway through the final period.Defenseman Roman Josi gave Switzerland the lead 13:04 into the game when he collected the puck behind the blue line, carved through the U.S. defense, and hit high past goaltender Connor Hellebuyck.Beside Jagr, Jan Kovar also had two goals for the Czechs, one of them with an assist from Jagr, and Vladimir Sobotka added one into an empty net.For Finland, Tuomo Ruutu, Jussi Jokinen and Aleksander Barkov scored.(KAREL JANICEK)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Aequa Launches Customizable Lineup of Italian Leather Goods

first_img Editors’ Recommendations Stay Free on This Private Swedish Island to Work on Your Magnum Opus The MNML Leather Highlander Travel Bag Makes Short-Term Trips a Breeze Comprised of a quality that speaks for itself, Italian leather stands head and shoulders above its material competition.Understanding this for the fact that it is, a new high-quality leather goods company named Aequa (a combination of aesthetics and quality) turned to Italian leather to help launch its new line of customizable goods — with the help of a Kickstarter campaign, as well. Judging by how well it’s already done with its run on Kickstarter (over $14,000 raised with 35 days remaining), it appears as though its attention to quality and design is already a massive hit.While the entire stock of goods oozes with Italian tradition, Aequa’s lineup is led by a product simply named the Aequa Bag. A weekender of sorts, the Aequa Bag’s unique construction gives it ample storage space which allows for when those weekend getaways turn into full week getaways. Additionally, Aequa finished the bag to make it stain, scratch, and water resistant which further increases its durability and makes it as timeless as its Italian leather exterior.“Nowadays it is difficult to have complete knowledge and control of where a product you buy comes from and how it is assembled,” reads Aequa’s Kickstarter page. “Most of the times we are not entirely aware of both the origins of the product and most importantly if it really fits our lifestyle and personal philosophy overall. We keep on buying products that are highly overpriced due to the brand and we end up by not really feeling related to what we have in our hands.”Manufacturing and selling a quality product is important, no doubt, but what sets Aequa apart from the crowd concerns its customization. Backers start by picking the kind of leather finish they prefer in Classic or Tech — while Classic speaks for itself, Tech is a softer, sportier version — then choosing the color of the bag’s lining and stitching before adding a personalized monogram. Because of this wide range of available options, Aequa says there exist more than 130,000 variations of its products. In other words, owners may be hard pressed to see another identical Aequa Bag in the wild.Listed on Kickstarter for just $259, the Aequa Bag’s price is yet another incredibly attractive feature. Though the bag figures to increase in price at the conclusion of the campaign, having the ability to buy a quality Italian leather weekender — that’s customized, no less — for under $300 is an incredibly rare occurrence.

Calgary event planners swamped with Christmas party requests

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email For a lot of people, it’s far too early to be thinking about Christmas plans, but corporations planning on having a party that haven’t booked it yet may be dealing with some less than jolly employees.Event planners say venues are booking up fast in Calgary.David Howard with The Event Group says it looks like more organizations want to have parties this year and things have picked up substantially.“We’re up I would suggest 25 per cent over what we were last year, but at the same time people are being conservative with their spending and watching every dollar,” he said.Sharon Barwick, Event Manager at Simply Elegant, said some of the trends she’s seeing is a move away from the traditional turkey dinner to more exotic menus, and personalized drinks.“They’re wanting to develop a signature drink that they can name something from their own company using infused syrups or something like that, or a specialty coffee drink,” she explained. “We’re noticing that a lot of companies want to focus on a winter wonderland, magical decor or they want to go with a glitzy Gatsby look; it’s gone very formal this year.”The busiest day for corporate events is December 13 and Howard suggested those having trouble booking something should try doing something in January.He also recommended doing planning for Christmas parties earlier next year, as early as April. by News Staff Posted Nov 6, 2014 7:53 am MDT Calgary event planners swamped with Christmas party requests read more

Student leadership commended at Goodman recognition night

Erica Thom has made a name for herself at Brock’s Goodman School of Business.The second-year business administration dual-degree student was awarded the Rookie of the Year award for her contributions to the Brock Finance and Investment Group (BFIG) at an awards ceremony April 7.Hosted by the Goodman Business Students’ Association, the annual Recognition Night recognizes student leaders for their contributions to student life at the Goodman School of Business, while also acknowledging the support of community partners and sponsors.The event marks the end of the student leadership term and provides an opportunity for each club to highlight the key successes and contributions of their organization.Each club presents two awards to students who went above and beyond in their co-curricular involvement.Erica Thom, winner of the Rookie of the Year award for Brock Finance and Investment Group (BFIG), is pictured with BFIG President Colin Hardy and Ishan Patel, winner of BFIG’s Outstanding Contribution Award.Thom held the Vice-President position on BFIG’s team and took a lead role in planning Stock Pitch Challenge, an internal competition that saw finance students choose, analyze and pitch stock information to judges from Goodman, Cooper Wealth Management and Spara Capital Partners.Thom was recognized by BFIG President Colin Hardy for her dedication to the club, strong work ethic and planning and organizational skills.“I was very humbled by the award,” Thom said after receiving the honour.“I’m actually the first female and the youngest vice-president in the history of BFIG. To have accomplished that and then get recognized through this award was really exciting for me.”Thom said club involvement has been the most valuable part of her Brock experience and it has helped point her in the right direction for her career path.“When I first started in BFIG, I was interested in capital markets but wasn’t doing personal investing yet. By attending this club’s events and going to every meeting and absorbing the knowledge that came from being around other people interested in finance, I was able to be more engaged,” she said.“It lead to further interest in finance and that is helping me on my career path as I start to look for jobs in the finance industry.”Thom has a lot of passion for BFIG and wants to encourage other students to find a club that suits their interests.“Club involvement is a great way to focus your interest and gain career experience,” she said. “I really do think club involvement is what sets students apart and it really stands out to employers. I’ve been using it a lot in my job search.”Thom is taking on another BFIG leadership role this fall before heading to Germany in the winter semester to finish the second half of her degree as part of Goodman’s unique BBA Co-op International Dual Degree program.In total, Goodman student clubs in the 2016-17 school year raised $6,621 for charities and sent 417 students to business competitions and conferences. Other highlights of the evening were the Goodman Professor of the Year award presentations. Based on student votes, Professor Darlene Bay won the undergraduate award and Professor Danny Cho won the graduate award, presented by Goodman Business Students’ Association President Nick Hollard and Goodman Graduate Business Council President Leonia Yiu.Recognition Night award winners:Brock Finance and Investment GroupRookie of the Year: Erica ThomOutstanding Contribution: Ishan PatelBrock Innovation Group:Rookie of the Year: Leanne KaratOutstanding Contribution: Alyssa DiCienzoBrock Marketing AssociationRookie of the Year: Josh NailOutstanding Contribution: Sahil BudwalGoodman Accounting Students’ AssociationRookie of the Year: Lauryn DavidsonOutstanding Contribution: Kawshik BasakPaul Hansell Competition Award: Jasmeen Hundal and Trevor GibbonsGoodman Business Students’ AssociationApprentice of the Year: Meera LadRookie of the Year: Diana ChanBryan Butryn Award for Outstanding Contribution: Cody Weber and Dan GiddingsGoodman DECARookie of the Year: Justin EnnsOutstanding Contribution: Zach FerryGoodman Graduate Business CouncilOutstanding Executive: Blair HutchingsVolunteer Initiative: Neville CherianGoodman Human Resource Management AssociationRookie of the Year: Evan O’DellOutstanding Contribution: Charnjot BrarGoodman Student Ambassador AssociationRookie of the Year: Colleen SimonsOutstanding Contribution: Ciara O’ConnellClub AwardsBest New Initiative Award: Goodman Human Resource Management AssociationCommunity Impact Award: Brock Marketing AssociationRising Club: Goodman DECA read more

Diagnostics for process valves etc

first_imgFlowserve, a global provider of fluid motion and control products and services, has launched Flowserve ValveAnalysis™, a software plug-in for Emerson® Process Management’s AMS™ Suite of asset management tools. Flowserve ValveAnalysis enables AMS users to run diagnostic signatures for Flowserve valves, actuators and positioners, providing key information that can be used to maximize equipment performance.Adding informative diagnostic signatures to the calibration and alarm functions already found in AMS, Flowserve ValveAnalysis allows users to increase the flexibility of their Emerson system and preserve the value of their Flowserve equipment base. With thousands of Flowserve valves installed in plants running AMS over Emerson distributed control systems (DCSs), Flowserve ValveAnalysis now gives users of AMS 6.0 or later a powerful new tool to evaluate the performance of those valves. ValveAnalysis integrates with the Flowserve Logix® 520si and 3200IQ HART® positioners. Unlike similar competing software packages, ValveAnalysis does not bypass AMS, ensuring that a complete device history is always maintained. Because ValveAnalysis does not unnecessarily duplicate the functionality already found in AMS, Flowserve is offering it to customers at an extremely cost-effective price.Informative diagnostic tests that can be run with Flowserve ValveAnalysis include Ramp Signature and HDL. For positioners with actuator pressure management, the Ramp Signature test plots command versus position and compares this data to cylinder pressures. The Ramp Signature test can be used to identify problems such as leaks in tubing fittings, improperly aligned plugs and seats, loose linkage, broken actuator springs, and sticky spool valves. The ValveAnalysis HDL test calculates the four standard diagnostic signatures – hysteresis, deadband, repeatability and linearity – by opening and closing valves. These signatures can be saved for future comparison to determine changes in equipment performance over time. HDL data can assist in making decisions that can improve maintenance procedures and maximize efficiency. “Flowserve valves, actuators and positioners are installed around the world operating under AMS,” said Kyle Ahlfinger, VP, Marketing, Flowserve Flow Control. “With the diagnostic features that ValveAnalysis adds to AMS, Flowserve customers are now assured of the interoperability of their Flowserve equipment.”www.flowserve.com.last_img read more

Diesel piston cooling technology breakthrough

first_imgFederal-Mogul Powertrain has developed a world first in piston cooling technology by creating a sealed-for-life coolant chamber within the crown of its market-leading Monosteel® heavy-duty diesel piston. Branded EnviroKoolTM, the technology allows pistons to run safely at crown temperatures in excess of 100°C higher than today’s limits, working where appropriate in conjunction with high oxidation resistant steel alloys and protective crown coatings.  “Future diesel engines with more efficient combustion and greater specific power will have to run hotter combustion chambers, but engine manufacturers are constrained by piston crown temperature limits,” commented Gian Maria Olivetti, Chief Technology Officer, Federal-Mogul Powertrain. “EnviroKool enables higher temperatures without compromising the strength or durability of the piston.” Delivering superior cooling efficiency with minimum weight, EnviroKool is the latest evolution of Federal-Mogul Powertrain’s well-proven Monosteel technology. An integral cooling gallery is created within a steel piston using friction-welded construction and then filled during the manufacturing process with a high temperature oil and an inert gas, before being permanently sealed with a welded plug. The EnviroKool technology has enabled Federal-Mogul Powertrain to overcome the temperature limitations of conventional open galleries that have to use engine lubricating oil as the heat transfer medium.  “The prolonged exposure of engine oil to higher temperatures in the piston oil cooling gallery leads to degradation and carbon build-up, reducing the cooling efficiency and leading to overheating,” explained Keri Westbrooke, Director Engineering & Technology, Federal Mogul Powertrain. “The superior high temperature properties of the EnviroKool gallery coolant allow it to handle increased gallery temperatures reliably, with the heat subsequently removed from the undercrown – where temperatures are lower – by a standard cooling oil jet.” With no build-up of carbon in the cooling gallery, heat dissipation remains unhindered for the life of the piston. The new technology is so effective that the oil cooling flow to the spray jets can be cut by 50%, reducing work for the oil pump, lessening parasitic losses and improving engine efficiency. The heat removed from the piston as a result of the spray jets is additional to that which is conducted away through the pin, piston skirt and ring pack. Federal-Mogul Powertrain has already accumulated more than 1,400 hours of testing on heavy-duty engines fitted with EnviroKool Monosteel pistons. Development programs are underway with several customers on engines scheduled for production launch within the next five years.  “EnviroKool is our latest in a succession of enabling technologies designed to help our customers produce engines and vehicles with a reduced carbon footprint, without compromising longevity, durability or performance,” concluded Westbrooke.last_img read more

US expects 25 percent drop in arrests on Mexico border in June

first_imgWashington: The number of migrants taken into custody at the US-Mexico border is expected to drop by 25 per cent in June, in part due to Mexican efforts to stem the flow, the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday. More than 1,44,000 undocumented migrants were seized at the southwestern US border in May, part of a surge in recent months. But Kevin McAleenan, the acting DHS secretary, said steps taken by Mexico — under pressure from President Donald Trump – to reduce the number of border-crossers appeared to be having an impact. Also Read – EAM Jaishankar calls on European Parliament President David Sassoli Advertise With Us “These three weeks have demonstrated that they are, already,” McAleenan told reporters. “That 25 per cent decrease in June is more than we’ve seen in past years.” McAleenan said the upcoming weeks will show exactly how effective the Mexican efforts have been. “I think we’re going to know, basically, by mid-July and certainly in the end of July if these efforts are sustained and having a significant impact,” he said. Also Read – This is why Denmark, Sweden and Germany are considering a meat tax Advertise With Us The acting DHS secretary said a reduction in the number of migrants crossing the border would have a positive impact on the conditions in which they are being held in the United States. The DHS and Border Patrol have been under criticism lately over the conditions in which migrants, particularly children, are being held.”I think we’re going to see continued reduction in the numbers which will alleviate some of the capacity constraints we’ve had,” McAleenan said. “That should present a much better situation at the border for the arriving migrants,” he said. Advertise With Us Earlier this month, Trump rattled world markets and defied his advisers by threatening tariffs on all Mexican imports unless the country cracked down more on people pouring across the border into the United States.Mexico avoided the duties after agreeing to bolster security on the border and expand its policy of taking back migrants, most of them from violence-riven Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, as the United States processes their asylum claims.last_img read more

When liquids behave like solids

DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.111.226102 (First row) SEM topography images of 1-mm drops of mercury resting on three surfaces of increasing roughness. The third surface is super-mercury-phobic. (Second row) Images of mercury drops during their detachment from these surfaces. While the drops deform considerably on the first two surfaces, on the third surface the drop deforms very little. (Third row) Force data during compression and detachment cycles show a large force hysteresis on the first two surfaces, while the hysteresis is almost absent on the third one. This behavior is similar to that of solids, but very unusual for liquids. Credit: Escobar and Castillo. ©2013 American Physical Society Citation: When liquids behave like solids (2013, December 10) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2013-12-liquids-solids.html Explore further Journal information: Physical Review Letters How slippery are water-repellent surfaces? (w/ Video)center_img But now in a new study, physicists have shown that a droplet of liquid mercury can undergo a reversible compression process like a solid object does, as long as the surface it interacts with is “super-mercury-phobic.” Such a surface is very resistant to mercury, so the mercury droplet does not spread out like a typical liquid droplet does. The physicists, Juan V. Escobar and Rolando Castillo at the National Autonomous University of Mexico in Mexico City, have published a paper on how a liquid can behave like a solid in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters.”On one hand, we have developed a novel technique with huge potential to study wetting in general and in particular the force of adhesion between a liquid and a solid, and on the other hand we helped bridge two apparently separate areas of physics (surface physics and mechanics),” Escobar told Phys.org. “From a more fundamental point of view, it could be said that our results show how Nature does not care about the specific source of the restoring force in a process of compression: as long as it enters the energy equation in mathematically similar form, the phenomenology will be the same.Normally, the compression of a liquid droplet onto a solid surface is a hysteretic process, meaning that the droplet’s contact angle depends on its compression history. However, previous studies have predicted that the contact angle hysteresis can disappear under certain conditions, essentially making the compression process reversible.Here, the physicists experimentally confirmed this prediction by compressing mercury droplets onto different types of surfaces. On rough surfaces, the droplets still exhibit contact angle hysteresis, but the droplets on the super-mercury-phobic surface do not. The researchers attribute the vanishing contact angle hysteresis to an extremely low surface energy between the droplet and the surface.Along with this finding, the researchers made an unexpected discovery: even though the mercury droplet’s contact angle hysteresis has vanished, it still has a small but measurable adhesion force, which is also independent of its compression history. Taken together, these two observations mean that the mercury droplet behaves like an elastic solid during a repeated compression-decompression process. The researchers explain that this behavior occurs because the dewetting of a liquid can be thought of as the equivalent of the detaching of an elastic solid. These results agree with a theoretical model in which the surface tension of a liquid is the counterpart of the restoring force of an elastic solid. The experiments could have applications for further investigation of a variety of liquid behavior.”Our instrument can be used to study the dynamic wetting of a wide variety of liquids and surfaces,” Escobar said. “In particular, it can be used to study the dynamic formation of the so called ‘pinning points’ that make the contact line stuck (or pin) on the surface (this study is underway). It can also be used to study the phenomenon called non-plastic ageing (this study is also underway). Also, our instrument could be used with polymers as well.” © 2013 Phys.org. All rights reserved.

For the ball, the compression process is reversible, so the ball retains its original form when decompressed. In contrast, the compression process for the water droplet is irreversible, and the droplet’s contact angle with the surface irreversibly changes because of the way the droplet interacts with the surface’s chemical or physical inhomogeneities.last_img read more

Officials to install wildlife crossing signs along Riviera Maya highway

first_imgRiviera Maya, Q.R. — Wildlife crossing areas been pinpointed along the Cancun to Chetumal highway with the first sign nearly ready for placement.Federal and state authorities have located the areas where they say wildlife cross the highway most often. The collaborative work between the Ministry of Communications and Transportation and the Secretary of Environment will result in the first wildlife crossing signs being posted.The first signs are set to be installed along the highway between the Xcaret theme park and the facilities of the mining company Calica.Elvira Carvajal Hinojosa, director of the Institute of Biodiversity and Natural Protected Areas in Quintana Roo explained, “There is a road that goes toward Chiquilá where wildlife cross. We are working with the Ministry of Communications and Transportation, Profepa, the PPA and local jaguar specialists to identify places where we know that wildlife cross.”She explained that in that section of roadway, the possibility of a bridge or an underground passage is being analyzed.

If an aneurysm ruptures, blood is leaked into or around the brain, which can cause brain damage or death.According to The Brain Aneurysm Foundation, an estimated 6 million people in the United States have an unruptured brain aneurysm, or 1 in 50 people. Ruptured brain aneurysms occur in approximately 30,000 Americans each year and are fatal in about 40 percent of cases. Of those who survive, about two-thirds suffer some permanent neurological deficit.“Given what a devastating event a ruptured brain aneurysm is, we are very motivated to identify the real risk factors for rupture,” said the study’s lead author, J. Pablo Villablanca, M.D., chief of diagnostic neuroradiology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles.In Villablanca’s study, 258 asymptomatic cerebral aneurysms identified either incidentally or during a baseline study of 165 patients (132 women, 33 men) were monitored over time (mean of 2.24 years) with computed tomography angiography (CTA), a noninvasive imaging study of the brain’s blood vessels. Patients were scanned with CTA at intervals of six or 12 months.Over the study period, the researchers observed growth in 46 or nearly 18 percent of all the intracranial aneurysms in a total of 38 patients. Three of the 39 growing saccular aneurysms ruptured, and of those, all were less than seven millimeters in size at study entry.“Our study shows that the size of the aneurysm is not as important as was once thought,” Dr. Villablanca said. “Any aneurysm is potentially capable of growth and thus requires follow-up imaging.”Current guidelines based on research conducted by the International Study of Unruptured Intracranial Aneurysms and other studies suggest that known aneurysms less than seven millimeters in size have a low risk of rupture and do not need to be monitored with imaging.Compared to the aneurysms that stayed the same size, the 46 growing aneurysms in the study were associated with a 12-fold higher risk of rupture. The researchers calculated the risk of rupture for growing aneurysms at 2.4 percent per patient-year, versus 0.2 percent for aneurysms without growth.“Our data support the need to perform longitudinal follow-up imaging to monitor for possible growth in all incidental unruptured aneurysms, including small lesions,” Dr. Villablanca said.The researchers also found that tobacco smoking and the initial size of the aneurysm were independent predictors of aneurysm growth. Together, these risk factors were associated with 78.4 percent of all aneurysm growth in the study.“The positive association between aneurysm growth, aneurysm size, and cigarette smoking suggests that the combination of these factors are associated with an increased risk of rupture and may influence the need for therapeutic intervention,” Dr. Villablanca said.Observation was the treatment of choice for 194 of 212 (91 percent) stable aneurysms. When aneurysm growth was discovered by CTA imaging, 50 percent of the growing aneurysms were treated, while the remaining 50 percent continued to be observed.###“The Natural History of Asymptomatic Unruptured Cerebral Aneurysms Evaluated at CT Angiography: Growth and Rupture Incidence and Correlation with Epidemiologic Risk Factors.” Collaborating with Dr. Villablanca were Gary R. Duckwiler, M.D., Reza Jahan, M.D., Satoshi Tateshima, M.D., Ph.D., Neil A. Martin, M.D., John Frazee, M.D., Nestor R. Gonzalez, M.D., James Sayre, Ph.D., and Fernando V.

Truck drivers demand better working conditions at Costa Ricas docks

first_imgRelated posts:Costa Rica’s Solís denies secret agreement with unions on Monday’s strike Workers’ unions to demonstrate against raise in Social Security rate Workers’ unions deliver petition to reverse raise in Social Security rate Caja moves forward with raise in social security rate, but in two phases A group of independent truck drivers on Monday afternoon demonstrated in front of Casa Presidencial, east of San José, asking the government to draft regulations to eliminate “exploitation by multinational companies that ship cargo through Costa Rica’s docks.”Protest leaders Carlos Vásquez and Gerardo Rodríguez said independent transporters are facing an unstable situation as minimum rates are not set for services they offer at the country’s docks, both at Caribbean and Pacific ports.Most of the country’s exports leave the country via docks; more than 80 percent leave through docks in the Caribbean province of Limón.Both leaders met with Presidency Ministry officials and delivered a document explaining problems they say affect some 18,000 drivers and their families.Drivers claim big multinational companies like Chiquita, Del Monte, Pindeco, Dole, Maersk, Seaboard and others negotiate service conditions with larger transport companies, “while we get less than fair rates, and they always delay our payments,” the document states.Truckers also denounced that big companies hire them only through intermediaries who do not offer any kind of insurance and force them to work on excessive schedules several hours a day.The transporters’ petition states that if their demands are not met they will hold a large public demonstration “big enough to finally make people pay attention” to the problems affecting them and their families.
