The first Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) prototype built in Paraguay was successfully tested in August 2011, with a flight between the cities of Limpio and San Bernardino. The flight was conducted at a speed of 85 kilometers per hour and at a maximum altitude of 330 meters. The UAV’s system allows the operator to remotely control the speed, destination and altitude from a control center. Lead engineer Rodrigo Campos Cervera (pictured, left), and his team are also working on a helicopter prototype with similar technical specifications.

“Everyone should focus on holding the event next year — we’re on the same page.”He said International Olympic Committee chief Thomas Bach was “not looking for” a Games held without any fans, but acknowledged smaller audiences might be possible.”He may be thinking about a limited number of spectators with full consideration of social distancing,” Muto said.”We must build an environment where people feel safe. Athletes and the IOC family may require testing before/after entering Japan and (we need) strong medical systems around accommodation and transportation plans,” he added. Next year’s coronavirus-postponed Olympics could be held in front of a “limited number of spectators” to prevent the spread of infection, Tokyo 2020 chief executive Toshiro Muto has said.The Tokyo 2020 games are now scheduled to open on July 23, 2021, after a historic postponement forced by the global march of the pandemic.Muto told BBC Sports that organizers were committed to holding the event in 2021, with no discussion of cancelling or postponing it further. Japan currently bans visitors from more than 100 countries in a bid to limit the spread of the virus and Muto said it was “too optimistic to assume all restrictions will be gone, so we must think of other ways.”With just under a year to go until the postponed Games, Japanese citizens have expressed skepticism about whether the Olympics can or should be held.Two polls in July found the majority of Japanese think the Games should be postponed again or cancelled altogether.And several medical experts have suggested the Games will not be viable without a proven treatment or vaccine for the virus.Muto said a vaccine would be “a benefit… [but] not a precondition.”Chairman of the Tokyo Co-ordination Committee John Coates sounded a positive note by saying the Games would go ahead with or without a vaccine.Organizers were “going ahead on the basis there won’t be a vaccine,” Coates told the Australia newspaperHe added that they were prepared “under whatever scenario we have to face, which will become clearer at the end of the year.”Japan has so far seen experienced a comparatively small coronavirus outbreak, but infections have been on the rise, particularly in the capital.Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike, speaking to Japan’s Kyodo news agency on Wednesday, warned that “containing the new coronavirus inside the capital is a prerequisite” for holding the Games.

Several of the ballot measures supported by Schwarzenegger including one that would limit union use of members’ dues for political causes and one that would increase the time it takes teachers to gain tenure have drawn battle lines with the unions. And a poll by the Public Policy Institute of California last week showed that 76 percent of Latinos disapprove of the governor’s job performance. Still, Schwarzenegger’s campaign efforts include at least two ads running on Spanish TV neither featuring the governor, who does not speak Spanish. One features young children playing with blocks that have the numbers 74, 75, 76 and 77 on them while a voice-over argues the measures will benefit schools. Another ad features four people speaking about why they support each of the governor’s four initiatives. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Arnold Schwarzenegger struggles to make his case for reform measures on the Nov. 8 special-election ballot, he and opponents have stepped up their battle for the state’s Latino voters., The governor taped a town-hall forum on Spanish-language Univision that aired statewide over the weekend, even as opponents launched their first Spanish-language TV ads featuring Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa attacking the governor’s proposals. The high-profile events are just the latest campaign efforts aimed at courting the 2 million Latinos registered to vote in California accounting for 14 percent of the statewide electorate. “We’ve been on the air with a seven-figure Spanish TV buy for the last three weeks,’ said the governor’s campaign spokesman Todd Harris. “In the past week the governor has been endorsed by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the Latino Coaliton, the Hispanic 100, the Hispanic Business Roundtable. Very influential statewide Latino groups have been joining the governor’s reform campaign in droves.’ Harris, who was involved in Schwarzenegger’s recall campaign, said this year’s effort has more staff and resources dedicated toward courting the Latino vote than the 2003 campaign. Officials with the Alliance for a Better California, the main labor-backed coalition fighting the governor’s agenda, also have been working hard to court the Latino vote. The Alliance has featured Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa in its television and print ads, and has mobilized Spanish-speaking union members to go door-to-door in urban neighborhoods. They have also capitalized on Schwarzenegger’s ties to former Gov. Pete Wilson, who became unpopular in the Latino community after backing anti-immigrant measures, by featuring the two side-by-side or morphing into each other in ads and asking voters to stop the “Wilson-Schwarzenegger agenda.’ Another alliance ad features a schoolteacher discussing the effects Schwarzenegger’s measure would have on schools and then cuts to Villaraigosa urging voters to oppose the measures. Still, some analysts argue neither campaign has not been courting Latinos to the extent they have in past elections. Antonio Gonzalez, president of the William C. Velasquez Institute, a nonpartisan organization that studies and seeks to improve Latino political participation, believes both campaigns are focusing more on high-propensity voters who tend to be white and affluent than they do in a regular election when wider turnout is projected. “The political consultants are scared of voters that don’t have a clear track record on these issues, so they don’t do the kind of big turnout activities you do when it’s a race between candidates and parties,’ Gonzalez said. “Just by the definition of this campaign, you don’t have the same amount of resources or attention or messaging going to Latino communities as, say, the white communities. That’s a function of dollars and cents. It’s also a function of a special election on insider-baseball type initiatives.’ @tagline columnist:Harrison Sheppard can be reached at (916) 446-6723, or by e-mail at [email protected]
