Fence jumper with flag
caught on White House lawn

By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

A man was in custody Thursday in Washington after jumping over a White House fence while the first family was inside celebrating Thanksgiving.

Draped in an American flag, Joseph Caputo scaled a fence on the North Lawn and was apprehended immediately, the Secret Service said.

It did not provide Caputo’s age or hometown, or any reason for the jumper’s actions.

Officials were trying to determine how the man made it past new spikes added to the White House perimeter this year to deter intruders.

The north and south fence lines at the White House were temporarily closed. In the hours after the incident, numerous armed security personnel were seen along the streets and sidewalks outside the executive mansion.

Caputo was at least the third person in 2015 to scale a fence and make it onto White House property.

While most fence-jumpers are quickly captured, in September 2014 an Iraq War veteran ran across the lawn, through the main door and past a stairway that leads up to the first family's residence before he was subdued by Secret Service agents in the East Room.

Campaign rally killing
takes one life in Venezuela

By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

A Venezuelan opposition candidate has been shot dead at a campaign event while standing alongside the wife of a jailed opposition leader.

Fellow Acción Democrática party members reported Luis Manuel Diaz, local party leader, was killed Wednesday at an event in the town of Altagracia de Orituco.

Standing next to him was Lilian Tintori, wife of jailed opposition leader Leopoldo López. She was not reported to be injured. She tweeted a response to the shooting late Wednesday night, blaming the governing party and calling it utter terror, harassment, and violence.

Venezuela holds congressional elections Dec. 6.

Polls show Acción Democrática and other parties are mounting a strong challenge to the ruling socialist government, led by President Nicolas Maduro, which has raised fears of conflict in a nation where politics often creates volatility on the ground.

In Washington Thursday, the secretary general of the Organization of American States, Luis Almagro, condemned the killing and called for an immediate end to the violence in the country.

"The violent death of any person is a heinous act that we cannot accept. The killing of a political activist, moreover, leaves us all more vulnerable, and signals that we are all real victims, not just potential victims," said Almagro.

He emphasized that the killing of a political leader is a deadly wound to democracy and a succession of violent acts in an electoral process can be a mortal blow to nearly any kind of democracy.

The incident is not an isolated episode, but one that occurred in conjunction with other attacks against other opposition political leaders in a strategy to intimidate the opposition.

After deal is reached in Paris
implementation is a concern

By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

The main expectations from the two-week United Nations Climate Change Conference about to begin in Paris are that the outcome should be a concrete plan with achievable goals from every nation that participates. That means that by 2025, carbon emissions will be at a much lower level than they are today.  But once that agreement is reached, what will it take to actually implement it?

There is hope in combating the effects of a rapidly warming planet, according to U.S. Rep. Don Beyer, who serves on the Joint Economic Committee and the House Committee on Natural Resources.   

“The United States has done more than any other country in the last seven years to reduce its carbon footprint. A lot of other nations around the world are working very hard. I am very optimistic about the Paris talks coming up in just a few weeks. Even the big nuke polluters like China and India are willing to come with plans,” said Beyer.

Still, one of the toughest issues has been financing developing countries to help them develop sustainable energy sources. George Mason University Professor Mona Sarfaty has a possible solution.

“The increase in solar panels photovoltaic cells has been tremendous over the last decade, and come far faster than anybody thought that it would. It’s now less expensive to produce solar energy than it is to produce other types of energy in some places. So what we need to do is to spread that inexpensively produced solar energy, so that there are many more areas that are able to get the energy that they need using either solar or wind, the renewables that are currently available,” said Professor Sarfaty.

At the same time, financing for poorer nations to help them cut greenhouse gas emissions and deal with the fallout of global warming remains one of the biggest obstacles even though the gap is narrowing.

Aliya Hag of the Natural Resources Defense Council acknowledges there is no quick solution.

“Developing nations are the most vulnerable to climate impacts and they need help from the industrialized world, which was responsible for much of the pollution that is causing the warming today. That’s not to say that developing countries don’t need to start reducing their emissions right now, but we do need to find a way to mobilize enough financing to make sure that they are able to build resilience and be prepared for the climate impacts that are already baked into the system,” said Ms. Hag.

Still, the reaching of a comprehensive deal in France remains uncertain.

Pope calls for quick action
to stop changes in climate

By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

Pope Francis took his message of caring for the planet to the offices of the U.N. Environment Program in Nairobi on Thursday and called for immediate action to stem climate change and protect the environment.

"In this international context, we are confronted with a choice which cannot be ignored: either to improve or to destroy the environment,” the pontiff said in his address at the U.N. compound.

Francis urged that selfish interests be put aside.

“In a few days, an important meeting on climate change will be held in Paris. . . . It would be sad, and I dare say even catastrophic, were particular interests to prevail over the common good,” he said.

Achim Steiner, executive director of the U.N. Environment Program, agreed with Francis' desire to reach a sustainable agreement at the climate summit in Paris, which begins Monday.

“That approach has embedded climate change into the global consciousness," he said. "Not just the science on harmful emissions and the wasteful practices that contribute to them, but the well-being of a healthy planet that includes justice, equality and solidarity with the most vulnerable in society, the very people who are often the least responsible for the problem but the most affected by the consequences.”

The pope called for action against poaching and illegal mineral exploitation in Africa and for a new energy system, reducing fossil fuel use to the minimum and rethinking the current model of development.

Participants in the Paris conference hope to achieve, for the first time in over 20 years of U.N. negotiations, a binding agreement on climate involving all the nations of the world.

Feds warn holdout states
on need to accept Syrians

By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

The U.S. federal government is warning state officials they do not have the legal authority to refuse to accept refugees from Syria.

The notification came in a letter dated Wednesday from the director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement to state resettlement agencies.

Program chief Robert Carey said that states may not deny benefits and services based on a refugee's country of origin or religious affiliation.

Any state that refuses to comply would be in violation of the law and could be subject to enforcement action, Carey warned in the letter, originally published in the Houston Chronicle.

More than two dozen mostly Republican governors have vowed to block federal attempts to resettle Syrian refugees in their states, arguing they pose an unacceptable security risk.

Fears were heightened after the discovery that at least one of the militants in the recent deadly Paris attacks had slipped into Europe in the wave of Syrian refugees.

President Barack Obama, a member of the Democratic Party, plans to accept 10,000 refugees from Syria over the next year.

That is a significant increase from the roughly 2,000 Syrian refugees the U.S. has taken in since the beginning of the Syrian civil war, but represents only a tiny fraction of the millions who have fled the war-torn country.

Last week, the Republican-led House of Representatives passed a bill that increases the restrictions on refugees from Iraq and Syria. The bill's future is uncertain in the Senate. Obama has vowed to veto it.

Military dogs now can retire
on U.S. soil with handler

By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

A gigantic defense spending bill signed Wednesday by U.S. President Barack Obama will allow U.S. military dogs to be returned to the United States upon their retirement and gives their military handlers first chance to adopt them.

Previously, U.S. military dogs could be retired overseas, which made them civilians and thus ineligible for military transport home to the U.S.

The 2016 National Defense Authorization Act changes that with provisions backed by the American Humane Association.

The association estimates each military dog saves the lives of between 150 to 200 servicemen and women by detecting explosives and hidden weapons caches.

The new law requires that military working dogs be returned to U.S. soil when they retire and that their former handlers will be given the first chance to adopt them.

The new law comes at a time when care of  U.S. veterans is under heavy scrutiny, as the U.S. struggles to cope with thousands of wounded service members returning from the longstanding conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Humane Association notes that reuniting working dogs with their handlers can help both veterans overcome wartime trauma and readjust to civilian life.

"This is a great day for military heroes on both ends of the leash. We believe all our veterans, two-footed and four-footed, should come back to a hero's welcome," Humane Association President Robin Ganzert said.

Family says Gifford autopsy
shows he had trauma disease

By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

The family of legendary American football player Frank Gifford says signs of the degenerative disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy were found in his brain after his death.

In a statement released Wednesday, the family said Gifford had experienced firsthand symptoms associated with the disease but did not offer specifics. He died of natural causes at his Connecticut home.

"While Frank passed away from natural causes this past August at the age of 84, our suspicions that he was suffering from the debilitating effects of head trauma were confirmed" when chronic traumatic encephalopathy was diagnosed, according to the statement.

Chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a dementia-like disease linked to the types of brain injuries and head trauma common in football, can only be confirmed after death. Symptoms include aggressive behavior, depression, memory loss, progressive dementia and suicidal tendencies. Dozens of former National Football League players have been posthumously diagnosed with the disease. In study results released earlier this year, 87 of 91 former players who donated their brains to science after death tested positive for chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

Gifford's family did not say who made the diagnosis or the severity of the disease, so it is hard to determine how the finding will impact the growing research on chronic traumatic encephalopathy. The family said it plans to have his brain studied in hopes of contributing to the advancement of medical research concerning the link between football and traumatic brain injury.

The family also said it found "comfort in knowing that by disclosing his condition we might contribute positively to the ongoing conversation that needs to be had; that he might be an inspiration for others suffering with this disease that needs to be addressed in the present; and that we might be a small part of the solution to an urgent problem concerning anyone involved with football, at any level."

"His entire adult life, Frank was a champion for others, but especially for those without the means or platform to have their voices heard," the family statement said.

In a statement, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the league supports grants related to government, university and independent efforts to research the effects of repetitive head trauma. The NFL has made a series of rule changes in recent years in an attempt to make the game safer.

"We appreciate the Gifford family's desire to help the medical community understand more about C.T.E., and we are grateful for their support of the league's efforts to improve safety in our game," Goodell said.

Gifford's diagnosis comes amid a growing focus on the risks athletes face from suffering repeated concussions, and just hours after the National Football League admitted its concussion protocols had come up short when St. Louis Rams quarterback Case Keenum was allowed to stay in a game after receiving a hit to the head that caused a concussion.

Keenum was not fully examined until after the game ended.

Gifford, who played his entire career with the New York Giants from 1952 to 1964, is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. A running back, defensive back, wide receiver and special teams player, he was the league's most valuable player in 1956 when the Giants won the NFL championship.

But in one of the most iconic images in NFL history, Eagles linebacker Chuck Bednarik flattened Gifford with a crushing hit in a 1960 game and pumped his fist in celebration while standing over the unconscious Giants player. Gifford was hospitalized for 10 days and missed the 1961 season.

Gifford also enjoyed a celebrated career following retirement from the NFL. He served for 27 years as an announcer on ABC's "Monday Night Football" and worked for more than a decade alongside another famous broadcaster, the loquacious Howard Cosell.

Spirit photography is making
a comeback with hobbyist

By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

Photographer John Milleker shoots old-time portraits showing ghostly images. The photos echo portraits with a spirit in the background taken by American William Mumler in the 1860s and 70s, known as spirit photography. 

With his dark, curly mustache and black coat, reflective of the era, Milleker begins setting up a spirit photo shoot in Sky Meadows State Park in Delaplane, Virginia. But first, the Baltimore, Maryland, photographer tells visitors about Mumler, who came up with the idea of spirit photography as he photographed images on glass plates.

“He had taken a self-portrait of himself and a spirit happened to appear on the plate with him,” Milleker explained. "He thought his plate wasn’t cleaned properly. But when he took it to his friends and family, they thought it resembled a cousin of his who had died 10 years prior.”

Mumler drew well-to-do clients for his expensive portraits, convincing them that spirits could put themselves in photographs. They included Mary Todd Lincoln, wife of President Abraham Lincoln, who was assassinated in 1865, days after the end of the U.S. Civil War. More than 600,000 soldiers died in the conflict, and some people longed for proof that their loved ones were in the afterlife.

Mumler claimed he could provide that proof in a photo, but also warned that the spirit might not appear or look like the person his clients knew.

“And then he would explain the physical and the spiritual form doesn’t always look exactly the same way,” Milleker said.

Milleker uses a wooden camera with a bellows and a lens from the 1860s to mimic Mumler’s photos. Inserting a glass plate into the heavy camera, he photographs a man, a Civil War re-enactor, and a woman in an 1860s-style dress. The woman is sitting in a chair with her hands crossed, while the man standing near her in a military uniform is her ghost.

Milleker uses the couple to demonstrate one way Mumler may have created his photos, using a double exposure, taking a photograph of someone, putting the lens cap back on, adding someone, and then taking the lens cap back off again.

He develops his photos the same way Mumler did, using a wet plate collodion process that produces a negative image on transparent glass.

Mumler was eventually outed as a fraud, said Milleker. He was taken to court but found not guilty because no one could prove his images were not spirits.

Milleker said his clients like the nostalgia of spirit images, as well as dressing in clothing from the 1800s. One couple even has a one-of-a-kind engagement picture of her sitting and staring at the camera, while her ghostly fiance, an apparent casualty in the Civil War, looks over her.

There are many good reasons for moving to or investing in Costa Rica

Are you worried about the safety of the money in your 401k?  Do you think your government has painted a bullseye on all of your assets?  Do you believe it might be time to consider moving some money overseas just in case?  This property, at a distress sales price of only $140,000, should gross a 7-10% return this year and the bookings for this season aren’t all in yet.  The best part from a buyer’s standpoint is that it is utilizing only a fraction of its potential.  What’s wrong here?  Divorce, and a lack of funds needed to make the necessary value-added improvements.  Rental manager says rents could double with moderate invesement, but the current owners are unable to resolve those problems, so selling is their only way out.  This extra-large lot with its modern 2-bedroom home was intended to service a dozen or more apartments to be built on the rear, a really great plan, but that was before the wheels came off of the marriage.  It is a really good investment property in a very desirable location, earning a much better safe return than stocks and bonds, but it is also perfect for buyers who only want to follow the original plan and live in the existing home while building out the rest for a comfortable retirement.  Perfect, too, for the person who intends to move to Costa Rica in the future and wants to buy at today’s prices, but needs a property which will carry itself until that time comes.  To find out more about this opportunity contact:
