By Dialogo October 28, 2011 Panamanian and Costa Rican authorities met on October 26 in search of strategies for the fight against organized crime operating on the two countries’ shared border, a Costa Rican source announced. “Crime problems are common to our two countries, so that meetings of this kind serve to strengthen our ties of cooperation at all levels,” Costa Rican Deputy Public Safety Minister Celso Gamboa declared. “We support close cooperation between Panama and Costa Rica through the handling and exchange of information,” his Panamanian counterpart Alejandro Garuz said in a statement, for his part. According to Garuz, despite the efforts made, technological advances, communications, and investments, “it’s necessary to confront the various conditions under which transnational terrorism is abusing the Costa Rican-Panamanian border.” The authorities discussed drug trafficking, human trafficking, prostitution, smuggling, drugs, and tax evasion, among other topics. Panama “is a fundamental strategic ally in the fight against crime, and we want to improve relations in order to succeed in making an effective impact,” Gamboa said, adding that in his country “there are concerns” about the penetration of drug trafficking on the border at Paso Canoas. The meeting in the Panamanian city of David concluded on October 27.
Sponsorship deals reflect an interdependent relationship between external companies and football clubs. Companies need football clubs to promote their brand, using football shirts as advertising boards amongst others, while football clubs need companies to generate sufficient income to boost their finances and potential growth.By sponsoring Rivers United, Eunisell, a leading global chemical and specialty fluid management company, has displayed its unwavering commitment to the development of domestic football in the country. No doubt, it is a pioneering feat for Eunisell as it continues to play a significant role in creating a brand profile for Nigeria Professional Football League side, Rivers United, formed following the merger of two clubs: Sharks and Dolphins, in 2016.There is a limit to government funding of the club and that explains the presence of a corporate sponsor, who in turn boosts the clubs revenue base.In only one year into its existence and sponsorship from Eunisell, Rivers United made an audacious bid for the Nigerian title, but narrowly lost to rivals, Rangers.Rivers finished behind Rangers to earn a place in Africa.As a strategic player supplying key products and solutions to a wide base of customers operating in Africa, Eunisell backed Rivers United financially in its bid to make an impact in the continent, this year. Rivers United emerged the only Nigerian team to reach the group stage of continental football this year.Interestingly, there is also the brand connection as both share blue as colours.Social MediaWith #EunisellFootball, Eunisell continues to evolve a brand profile for the Rivers United via Social Media.FansThe Rivers United brand continues to evolve as it now appeals to an increasing number of fans in its area of influence and beyond, thanks to the energy of Eunisell.Statistics reveal an increase in match day attendance for Rivers United compared to the past when it functioned as Dolphins.Expectedly, the presence of Eunisell on the clubâ€™s shirt has created an emotional link with fans, who now see reasons to embrace club official shirts.Eunisell Sponsorship HistoryThis is the second year of Eunisellâ€™s front-of-shirt sponsorship of the Port-Harcourt side and third year as a front-of-shirt sponsor, since venturing into the NPFL with now disbanded Sharks, in 2015.Indeed, it is already three years for Eunisell and a league record as the longest sponsor of a club in the NPFL. Interestingly, Eunisell remains the only sponsor to announce a bonus to a team since organised league kicked off in the Nigeria in 1972.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Few students would disagree that USC’s wireless Internet service is due for some fine-tuning, but they might not realize the amount of work and money required to improve wireless coverage.Connect · Students studying in Leavey Library take advantage of the improved wireless coverage in the library and surrounding area. – Vicki Yang | Daily Trojan In 2006, Information Technology Services began working to improve its wireless coverage, which had been in place since 2002. ITS added almost 1,000 wireless Internet access points to the pre-existing 620, increasing coverage roughly 160 percent.But those improvements have not satisfied USC students. In fact, every candidate in the recent Undergraduate Student Government election mentioned improving wireless as one of his or her platform points.“We’ve had enough student feedback to know that there’s an issue, and I think it’s why you saw candidates talking about it in the student government campaigns,” said John Baldo, director of university affairs for USG. “I think everyone kind of agrees it is something we should have. I think ITS is pretty onboard with making sure we have it.”Newly elected USG president Chris Cheng said USG’s focus for next year will shift toward improving wireless in the residence halls, as many students have complained about the spotty coverage.“Before the elections, we had a research period where we talked to as many students as possible,” Cheng said. “There really is a high demand for improvement in the residence halls, and in the core academic buildings — Von KleinSmid and Taper Hall, places where a lot of people have their General Education courses.”Kevin Durkin, director of communications for ITS, said sometimes it is not the number of access points that creates a weak signal but other types of interference, such as microwave ovens or the wire mesh in the walls of buildings.Cheng stressed that USG is not suggesting that ITS isn’t doing its job in providing wireless to students.“But in places where the wireless is weak and low, we want to strengthen it,” he said.Until recently, wireless coverage was inconsistent, even in Leavey Library, a main study spot for both graduate and undergraduate students. Last semester, USG conducted a meticulous survey of Leavey library, measuring signal strength across the building and identifying its weakest points, gathering student feedback and meeting with library staff and ITS Field Services Director Gabe Ochoa.“John Baldo presented a very comprehensive report,” said Hugh McHarg, executive director of communications and public programming for the USC libraries. “And we’re very glad the student government folks engaged in that because Internet access is an important part of the service we provide at the library.”The library agreed to add four new access points, and ITS paid for three more. Each new wireless access point costs $900.“ITS paid for three access points, so we’re very grateful to them for working with us,” Baldo said. “And now we have seven new access points over the second, third and fourth floors [of Leavey], because those are the floors where students are studying the most.”Next, USG will work to improve the wireless available in common outdoor areas, such as McCarthy Quad.“With something like this, you have to start somewhere and sort of focus on one area at a time. You can’t just walk in and say, ‘I want every building next week,’ because there’s this huge cost you have to take into consideration,” Baldo said.Students disagreed as to whether the first step should be improving wireless in the dorms or in common areas.“I don’t know how it is in different residence halls, but I know that mine doesn’t get wireless,” said Robert Peterson, a sophomore majoring in music industry who lives in Parkside International Residential College.Peterson said he thinks improving wireless near the dorms will be an asset to students.Others, however, think wireless in classrooms needs to be the priority.“I think classrooms should come first. From what I see, I don’t see a lot of people using their laptops outside,” said Esmeralda del Rio, an undecided sophomore. “My sociology professor always has a hard time getting wireless on her laptop when she’s about to show slideshows. It takes her about, like, five minutes. And sometimes, when she wants to use the Internet, she can’t.”Kimberly Kanable, a freshman majoring in environmental engineering, said she thinks it makes sense to start with classrooms and common spaces, as Ethernet connections are available in the residence halls. Baldo said the biggest problem in attempting to improve wireless coverage in any given building is figuring out who is going to cover the cost.“You know everyone wants perfect wireless in their building, so you can imagine ITS is trying to accommodate what everyone wants, but it’s not really possible when it’s $900 an access point,” Baldo said.Durkin emphasized ITS is committed to providing the campus with the wireless coverage it increasingly needs.“ITS recognizes that the increased use of mobile devices — laptops, iPhones, Blackberries and so forth — is driving the demand for improved wireless service, so in response to that we are looking for alternative approaches to providing pervasive, reliable wireless coverage across both campuses. So in other words, stay tuned,” Durkin said.
PEP GUARDIOLA claims Manchester City played well in their 2-0 defeat at Spurs – despite not appearing from the away changing room for 45 MINUTES after the final whistle.A debut goal from Steven Bergwijn set Tottenham on their way to victory, with Son Heung-Min bagging a second at their new stadium.1 Pep Guardiola stayed in the dressing for 45 mins after losing 2-0 to Spurs but insists his team did wellCredit: Getty ImagesMan City missed a penalty in the first half and were reduced to ten men in the second when Oleksandr Zinchenko picked up another yellow for tactical fouling.Despite dominating possession and having far more shots, City never really looked like getting the better of Jose Mourinho’s men.However, Guardiola claims his team played well during the defeat.That’s despite the Spaniard locking his players in the away changing room for 45 minutes after the final whistle before emerging to face the press.According to the Manchester Evening News, Guardiola could even face a Premier League fine due to his tardiness.But the tactician refused to criticise his players publicly, telling BBC Match of the Day: “I have no regrets about the performance.“We lost a football match. Of course we had a lot of chances. At the end of the day you have to take it.“In the second half we started well and created chances to score and didn’t do that.”Most Read In SportTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battle’I ACCEPT’McGregor accepts Silva fight at UFC catchweight of 176lbs in huge super-fightTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramPicturedA CUT ABOVEMike Tyson shows two-inch cut ‘picked up in training’ ahead of boxing returnPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidSpeaking to Sky Sports, Guardiola added: “We played well but lost the game.
