By Dialogo March 31, 2011 Seized material is of Ecuadorian and Bolivian craftsmanship and origin, this should call the attention of the international community, since explosives are of Bolivian origin in another country that is part of ALBA, whatâ€™s the deal, if they really are for guerrilla groups we are seeing that Bolivia is internationalizing its operations; that this country now not only is involved in drug trafficking as a government but it is clear that they support armed groups who have brought pain and mourning to Colombia, apparently after their actions in northern Peru a few years ago, now you can see their actions in Ecuador with military support (dynamite), congratulations to the authorities of the country trying to dismantle something that is causing violence to humanity, terrorism is a crime against humanity, and I think everyone knows that the Morales government is made up of ex – terrorists, one of them is his Vice President, next the Minister of Health who is the wife of a Tupamaro, Carlos NuÃ±ez former ELN, Chavez of the MRTA, in fact the list is long, hopefully this is a wake up call for the international agencies to combat terrorism now. Your information is good and keep moving forward. Ecuador has seized around 27,000 sticks of dynamite, as well as safety fuses and blasting caps, suspected to have been intended for Colombian irregular groups, the Ecuadorean police announced on 28 March. “27,000 sticks of dynamite, 27,500 meters of safety fuse, and 27,500 blasting caps were found,” said police officer Diego Chalén, an explosives expert with the Intervention and Rescue Group (GIR), in statements made public by the Ecuavisa television network. An agent from the police Anti-Organized Crime Unit (Ulco), for his part, stated that the items seized were homemade and of Ecuadorean and Bolivian origin, and that “their final destination is believed to have been irregular groups” in Colombia. The operation, in which three individuals were detained, took place in the Andean province of Azuay (in southern Ecuador) on 27 March, when the explosives were being transported by truck to the port of Guayaquil (in southwestern Ecuador), according to the police.
Indonesian national wrestling champion Eko Roni Saputra put forth a spectacular performance, dominating newcomer Murugan “Wolverine” Silvarajoo of Malaysia to earn a first-round victory in the ONE: REIGN OF DYNASTIES, which was broadcast on Friday.At the sound of the opening bell, Eko quickly chased Silvarajoo across the Circle. The Indonesian unloaded a series of powerful boxing combinations against the fence, as Silvarajoo covered up. Taking the Malaysian down to the mat, Eko advanced to the bout-ending submission, using his feet to tweak Silvarajoo’s shoulder in a joint lock maneuver to force the tap shortly after.“I appear more comfortable now because I train a lot in striking, boxing and Muay Thai. I don’t want to just rely on my take-down wrestling skills, but I start my game with striking, then I start the take-down,” Eko, who trains at the EVOLVE MMA gym in Singapore, said. In the main bout, reigning ONE Strawweight Muay Thai and Kickboxing World Champion Sam-A Gaiyanghadao of Thailand successfully retained his Muay Thai World Title with a near-flawless performance against ISKA K-1 World Champion and number one ranked contender Josh “Timebomb” Tonna of Australia.Sam-A appeared composed and relaxed to start the bout, delivering a volley of fast boxing combinations and high round kicks in the first round. In the beginning of the second, Sam-A dropped Tonna with a bullet-like left straight, sending the Australian to a mandatory 8-count. Sensing he had his opponent hurt, Sam-A poured on the pressure and dropped Tonna two more times en route to a technical knockout victory.In another round, former ONE World Title challenger and current fifth-ranked flyweight Reece “Lightning” McLaren of Australia may have boosted himself up the divisional ladder based on his most recent showing. The Gold Coast native drew up a dominant performance, knocking out three-time IBJJF No-Gi European Champion Aleksi “The Giant” Toivonen of Finland in the first round.Topics :
All eyes will be on the injury report leading up to the Sunday Night Football matchup between the Packers and 49ers. Star TE George Kittle is “questionable” and figures to be a true game-time decision. Fantasy football owners will be looking for the latest updates throughout the day, and we have you covered until the official active/inactive report is released so you can feel good about one of your final start ’em, sit ’em decisions for Week 12.For news on banged-up players Tom Brady, Jordan Howard, and Adrian Peterson, click here; for updates on injured WRs, including Julian Edelman, Alshon Jeffery, and Emmanuel Sanders, go here; for the Week 12 weather report, click here. Follow us for more news and updates on Twitter @SN_Fantasy. WEEK 12 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endAt this point, it’s tough to say if Kittle will suit up, but he seems to be trending toward being active. If he’s out, Ross Dwelley would once again resume starting TE duties. He’s received 12 targets the past two games, and last week against Arizona, he scored two touchdowns. Green Bay is a top-five matchup for TEs, so if Kittle is out, Dwelley is in play as a TE1.If you’re going to wait out Kittle this week, you should have either Dwelley or someone else from the prime-time games ready to go as a backup. Mark Andrews and Gerald Everett likely aren’t available in your league — and Jimmy Graham might not be either — so you’d be left with Dwelley or someone like Tyler Higbee or Hayden Hurst. Kittle is worth waiting for, though, and if he’s active, he’s a must-start even if he plays slightly fewer snaps than usual. WEEK 12 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerIs George Kittle playing Sunday night?UPDATE: Kittle is officially ACTIVE.Kittle has missed the past two games because of a knee injury, but after getting in limited practices all week, he’s listed as “questionable” and says he’s moving in the “right direction”. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported early Sunday morning that Kittle is expected to play.
– Lewis’ team actually looked the best of the bunch before bungling one away in Chicago, 24-21, with personal fouls, wasted timeouts and turnovers. AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org “I know that’s kind of a bad answer, but it’s the truth. All of a sudden, we find ourselves tied for first place. We also find ourselves tied for last place. That’s where we’re at.” Not just them. They’re all feeling the blues this week in the AFC North. All four teams in the NFL’s most successful division over the last five years have started the season at 0-1. It’s only the second time that’s happened, according to STATS LLC. The other time? Way back in 2002, when the league went to the current division format. “Yeah, it helps ease it a little bit,” defensive end Carlos Dunlap said. “But you can look at it the other way, too, and say we could’ve been one up.” – The defending Super Bowl-champion Baltimore Ravens went back to Denver, the scene of their improbable playoff comeback last season, and had their revamped defense get taken apart for a record-seven touchdown passes by Peyton Manning in a 49-27 route. And it’s not just that all four lost, it’s how they lost: In the last five years, no division has sent more teams to the playoffs than the AFC North – 11 overall. It’s the only division that has sent at least two each season, including three in 2011. None of them looked like a playoff-caliber team for very long. Worse, Pro Bowl center Maurkice Pouncey tore ligaments in his right knee and linebacker Larry Foote ruptured his right biceps, ending their seasons. The Ravens opened the season on Thursday night, so they’ve had a little extra time to sort out their problems on defense. On Sunday, they host the Browns, who have a new coach in Rob Chudzinski but played like they were ready to hold up the bottom of the division for yet another year. There were plenty of SINS in a division with the league’s best playoff pedigree. AP Sports Writers David Ginsburg in Baltimore, Tom Withers in Cleveland and Will Graves in Pittsburgh contributed to this report. So, there’s that recent history to fall back on after those dismal debuts. The Bengals looked good in the first half at Chicago before reverting to their old Bungles ways. The final flub was linebacker Rey Mauaulga – a team captain last season – throwing down a Bears defender after the whistle for a penalty that allowed Chicago to run out the clock. – Over in Pittsburgh, the towel-waving crowd at Heinz Field put those towels away and filed out quietly near the end of a shocking 16-9 loss to the Titans that was in most ways the worst of the division’s opening flops. CINCINNATI (AP) – Bengals coach Marvin Lewis watched a little video of Pittsburgh’s season-opening disaster and felt a kinship with the failure. “We’ve got a lot of work to do,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. “Nobody cares about our problems. They’re glad we’ve got them. We need to understand that. We need to stick together and persevere.” Up next: a Monday night game in Cincinnati against the Bengals and former Steelers linebacker James Harrison. Pittsburgh hasn’t opened a season 0-2 since 2002. And that wasn’t all of it. Twice, the Bengals had to call a timeout because they had the wrong number of players on the field on defense, leaving them with no way to stop the clock in the closing minutes. At least everyone else lost. A North team has reached the Super Bowl three times in the last five years, winning two titles. The Ravens have reached the playoffs each of the last five seasons; the Steelers have reached the Super Bowl twice during that span. ___ ___ “The great thing about it is – and we all know this – it’s week-to-week in this league,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said. “If we take care of our business, we’re going to be in the hunt and make it interesting. And if we don’t, we’re not. “I just watched the first half of their game and I’m sure they feel the same way we do,” Lewis said. Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis yells out to his team during the first half of an NFL football game against the Chicago Bears, Sunday, Sept. 8, 2013, in Chicago. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast)by Joe KayAP Sports Writer “A lot of we call it SINS – self-inflicted negatives,” receiver Davone Bess said. “A lot of times when you’re backed against the wall, you need to be able to execute from assignment and alignment standpoint. If you don’t do that, you’re killing yourself before the play even starts.” – In Cleveland, the Browns did their annual looking-a-little-better tease before falling apart and losing to the Dolphins 23-10, dropping their ninth straight opener and their 14th in the last 15 years. The Steelers might have the toughest go of it. They missed out on the playoffs last season by finishing 8-8, unable to run the ball consistently or protect quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. They drafted Le’Veon Bell to boost the running game, but he got hurt during camp. Pittsburgh ran for only 32 yards in the opener and Roethlisberger was sacked five times.
Court documents say the woman filed the suit in Arizona on Tuesday and is seeking more than $75,000 in damages. She said Winston grabbed her crotch in the drive-thru of a Mexican restaurant in the Phoenix area in March 2016.After an investigation into the incident, the NFL in June suspended Winston for three games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy.The suit comes as Winston approaches the final game of the suspension, and with the Buccaneers off to a 2-0 start.He missed the opener at New Orleans and last week’s home victory over defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia. He is eligible to return on Tuesday, the day after Tampa Bay plays the Pittsburgh Steelers.A call to the Buccaneers offices after business hours Tuesday was not immediately returned.The Associated Press does not generally name people who allege they are victims of sexual assault.The NFL announced the suspension after an eight-month investigation concluded the 2013 Heisman Trophy winner, who was in Arizona for a charity event, violated the league’s personal conduct policy by “touching the driver in an inappropriate and sexual manner without her consent.”The driver did not file a criminal or civil complaint, however she reported the incident to Uber. The NFL learned of the allegation when it was reported publicly last November.“The league promptly initiated a comprehensive investigation that included interviews with several persons, including the driver, Winston and others with relevant information,” the NFL said in a statement announcing the suspension. “The league also examined an extensive amount of other evidence, including telephone records, business records, data from electronic devices and other communications.”Winston was allowed to practice during training camp and play in preseason games, but he is forbidden to have contact with team during the suspension.The NFL also said at the time that the fourth-year pro is required to have a clinical evaluation and cooperate in any recommended program of therapeutic intervention.In his only public comments on the accusation and suspension, Winston apologized on the first day of training camp this year. But he would not discuss specifics of the Uber ride he took during the winter after his rookie season.“I should never have put myself in that situation,” he said. “All I can do is grow and learn from that. … I’ve made a lot of positive changes since then.”The Bucs drafted Winston No. 1 overall in 2015, despite questions about his behavior during his college career at Florida State.Winston was accused of raping a fellow student at FSU, but never charged. The university settled a Title IX lawsuit over its handling of the allegations with Winston’s accuser, Erica Kinsman, in January 2016 for $1.7 million.The suspension is costing Winston $124,411 of his base salary of $705,000 for this season. He is set to earn $20.9 million in 2019.___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/tag/NFLfootball and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL This Aug. 30, 2018 file photo, shows Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston before an NFL preseason football game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Tampa, Fla.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Pittsburgh coach Jeff Capel gave his freshmen backcourt simple instructions Tuesday night: Attack the hole.The strategy worked as Trey McGowens scored 26 points, Xavier Johnson added 23 and Pittsburgh defeated Boston College 80-70 in the first round of the ACC Tournament.The explosive freshmen combined to shoot 14 of 28 from the field and make 19 of 26 free throws as the 14th-seeded Panthers won their second straight game since snapping a 13-game losing streak.“We’ve been at our best when we’ve been able to get downhill and attack,” Capel said. ”… I thought they were terrific. They dictated the pace, the tempo. They gave us confidence, and I thought that led to other guys stepping up and making big plays.”Jared Wilson-Frame chipped in with 16 points and nine rebounds for Pittsburgh (14-18).With the freshman getting to the basket, Pittsburgh was able to score on layups and outscore Boston College 48-16 in the paint.“They took over the game, just by attacking the rim,” Boston College coach Jim Christian said. “The first time we played them we did a great job of keeping them in front and them protecting the basket with our secondary defender. Today we did an awful job of both.”Nik Popovic had 21 points and nine rebounds to lead Boston College (14-17), which shot 35.6 percent from the field and trailed by as many as 27 in the second half before cutting it to nine with 58 seconds left.The Panthers closed the first half on a 23-5 run to take a commanding 36-21 lead at the break. Boston College failed to make a field goal in the final 9:17 before intermission and shot 25 percent.Johnson provided the boost with huge plays on both ends of the court for Pitt.He repeatedly got to the hole scoring 14 points, and had two steals that led to two layups. The Panthers picked up where they left off in the second half as McGowens scored nine of the team’s first 17 points.“That’s the key every game is attack,” Johnson said. “The last time we played them, they littered the paint, and I shot 3 for 19 from the field. Today I shot 7 for 14, and that was the difference.”SYRACUSE’S 2-3 ZONEThe victory propels the Panthers into Wednesday night’s second round matchup against former Big East rival Syracuse, the tournament’s sixth seed.Pitt likely won’t be able to get to the hole as much against Syracuse’s 2-3 zone, but McGowens said attacking is still important. “We have to attack them and make them close the gaps and get some kick-outs.”BIG PICTUREPittsburgh: The Panthers have taken their lumps this year winning only three regular season ACC games, but Johnson and McGowens are going to be trouble for the next couple of seasons. Both have NBA potential. “They are only going to get better,” Christian said.Boston College: The Eagles have to find something on offense, where they looked out of sync for most of the game. They were just 6 of 25 from beyond the 3-point arc and could really use a knockdown shooter.UP NEXT:Pittsburgh: The Panthers face Syracuse, who they lost to by nine points in both previous matchups this season.Boston College: Season over.___More AP college basketball: https://apnews.com/Collegebasketball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25 Pittsburgh’s Sidy N’Dir (11) shoots against Boston College’s Jared Hamilton during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game in the Atlantic Coast Conference men’s tournament in Charlotte, N.C., Tuesday, March 12, 2019.

I had an interesting conversation with Hank Barnes last week. We were discussing competitive displacements, a euphemism for stealing clients from your competitors, and the conversation turned to client priorities. Part of displacing your competitor may also include displacing other priorities. Your client may want to change, need to change, and have every intention of eventually doing so, but yet they push that initiative into the future.Make It Strategic: There is a reason that you should start at Level 4, strategic outcomes in client conversations. The more strategic the outcome, the more important it is. The more important an initiative is to producing the strategic outcomes your client’s need, the more it is imperative that they take action. To make your opportunity more compelling, you need to tie it tightly to what is already compelling. How does what you are proposing to help your client with even greater outcomes?Increase the Delta: The larger the difference between the client’s current results and the results they need, the more likely it gets done. But looking at cost savings is only one measure of value, and perhaps not the most interesting. How the savings can be used to invest in their other priorities may make the delta more compelling. More still, if your client’s results are poor in one area, the time and energy being exerted to work around issues should be being put towards the more strategic outcomes.Critical Path: If there is a way you can make your opportunity part of the critical path to results, you can increase the probability of crowding out other initiatives that aren’t tied to the client’s most important projects and initiatives. If you can show how their results would be diminished by moving forward before making the changes you are recommending, you can increase the need to move your opportunity forward.None of this is easy. It likely means you need to have big conversations with your client’s leadership team to discuss priorities. You also must be able to position your opportunity as something strategic, something essential to their future success. It is, however, necessary and important to create a compelling reason to displace your competitor—and to displace other priorities. Get the Free eBook! Learn how to sell without a sales manager.
