first_imgPhoto Gallery He is specifically interested in how this information might be useful for areas like Turrialba, where agricultural plots could be reborn as tropical forest by birds simply  going about their business.The CATIE campus – one of the foremost research centers in the world for tropical botany – is an ideal spot for Jones to conduct his study. Two breeds of toucan, the keel-billed toucan (Ramphastos sulfuratus) and collared aracari (Pteroglossus torquatus) are abundant, and they make frequent rounds from the treetops to coffee, sugar and cacao plantations. Jones chose toucans for the study because they eat fruits and vegetables whole, and are therefore an ideal conduit for distributing seeds intact. Also, he likes them.“I think toucans are amazing birds,” he says.Birdwatching at Saddam’s PalaceIn 2003, Jones had just begun to study ornithology when he found out he’d be going to Iraq. While deployed, he mostly worked a facility that processed documents written in Arabic, but he also traveled widely. He lived in Qatar for eight months and Iraq for three, and he spent time in Germany, Morocco and Kuwait. Jones brought his bird books everywhere, which initially mystified some of his fellow soldiers. “They pretty much thought I was crazy,” he remembers. “But after a while, it became sort of a game. They’d point out birds to me,” he said.Jones recalled one morning in Tikrit, when a bizarre-looking bird called a Hoopoe repeatedly banged itself against the window of Saddam Hussein’s palace, fighting its own reflection. “It looks like a zebra woodpecker thing with a super-long bill,” Jones says. “I was inches from it.”On a trip to Benin in West Africa, Jones saw a sunbird, which is a bit like a hummingbird except it doesn’t hover, he explained. As it turned out, no sunbird had ever been seen in Benin before, and Jones published a paper about it.The Army had its advantages, Jones says, but there were also things that weren’t ideal, namely: being under someone else’s command. He didn’t like being told what to do, and he “had no inkling” about the bigger picture or how decisions were made.  So, he decided to “write his own ticket.” When Jones returned to the U.S. in 2004, he focused on publishing academic papers and becoming a professor. He has especially enjoyed the freedom to design his own research. “I came up with most of this project on my own, and I was able to get it funded on my own,” he says.These days, Jones also commands a small army of his own.The toucan warrior“Mickey, pull it up four feet!” Jones yells at the forest. Mickey Pardo – hidden in the thicket – shakes a net that is suspended slightly below a small cavity in a tree.Pardo, who is from New York and preparing to start a doctorate involving elephant behavior at Columbia University, is one of nine volunteers living in a house on the CATIE campus, helping Jones complete his research. Other volunteers are from the U.S. states of Minnesota, Pennsylvania and New Jersey; previous help has flown in from as far as Australia and Holland.Rachael DiSciollo, originally from the U.S. city of Philadelphia, has been around for about six months. She’s collaborating with Jones on a side project that will measure the timing of the birds’ regurgitations at the Toucan Rescue Ranch in San Isidro de Heredia, north of San José.More typically, volunteers work three of four shifts around CATIE each day, and each shift lasts about three hours. Much of the time is spent tracking birds that Jones tagged prior with transmitters, but the really exciting part, everyone says, is when a bird is netted.“When people first get here, I want them to see a bird as soon as possible,” Jones says. “Plenty of things go wrong, so you have to enjoy what goes right.”The volunteers spent the better part of this morning positioning a net in front of a tree cavity, which also happens to be the sleeping place of six or seven toucans. The group returns to the hole between 5 and 6 p.m. each night, and if the net is in good position, they’ll all fly directly into it.Jones hopes to catch at least one of two birds in this group that is already wearing a transmitter, so that he can remove it. For each group, he only needs data on one bird, but weeks ago, he mistakenly tagged two of this bunch. “Doing ecological research is a mess,” he says, smiling.Shortly after 5 p.m., several collared aracaris have started gathering in the trees surrounding the one they aim to sleep in. After hours of setup and discussions about which is the best way to capture the birds, the volunteers gaze expectantly at their work. Time seems to slow down, and finally, one small toucan leaves its perch. The bird soars toward the cavity and flies beak-first into the trap.Gleeful shouts and high fives are exchanged among the volunteers. “This is the essence of being a toucan warrior,” Jones explains. The group already knows that this juvenile won’t be helpful for the study, which only involves adult birds. But catching even the wrong toucan is undeniably satisfying.The small toucan struggles to free itself from the net, and becomes even more tangled. It flails and rests, flails and rests, and its buddies all line up on nearby branches. One by one, the birds attempt to enter their hole, and one by one, they too land in the net.Something’s wrong, though. After a second or two of struggle, the birds are able to free themselves. In some cases, they just bounce off. After multiple attempts to enter the cavity, the birds give up, and follow their enormous beaks out of the trees and over the CATIE housing. “Turn around. Turn around. Don’t do that!” Jones tells the birds.It’s useless, though. The toucans are gone.With a pulley system, the volunteers bring down the one still-ensnared juvenile toucan. Jones places his hand gingerly on the underside of the bird, and DiSciollo sticks the finger of a yellow gardening glove in its beak to prevent it from biting the volunteers.Jones works the net methodically, and soon the bird’s wings and feet are disentangled. Jones lifts the net over the bird’s head like a parent removing a T-shirt from a toddler.The jarred bird flies erratically out of Jones’s arms and lands on DiSciollo’s pants. Then the ground. Finally it makes it back into a nearby tree. Jones and the volunteers aren’t thrilled about tormenting a bird so small and helpless. But as in war, there are often unpleasant things that must be done to serve the greater mission.Wild callingPlenty of research exists on seed dispersal, but Jones’ study is the first to look at its use in fragmented habitats, or forestlands that have been partially cleared for agriculture use. Wildlife biologists are becoming increasingly interested in the potential for wildlife preservation within these mixed habitats, according to Fabrice De Clerck, a program leader with Biodiversity International in Rome.“In the past, most conservation biologists focused on protected areas, such as national parks,” he said. “Now some are also trying to understand how we can incorporate natural, forested corridors to promote both the conversation of wildlife and sustainable farming.”De Clerck has served as a mentor to Jones in his research at CATIE, and he’s optimistic about the potential for the toucan study, which he described as “sophisticated.” Not only will the study track and record the behavior of toucans in the wild, but it will also gather data on how frequently they regurgitate seeds in captivity. Jones will then return to Louisiana to create a computer model that will display the toucan’s contribution to reforestation.“[Jones’] work will provide a better picture of how the behavior of the seed dispersers influences the establishment of different plants across a landscape,” says Paul Leberg, a conservation biologist and professor at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette. “Understanding this process could assist in the reforestation of disturbed habitats.”For the time being, though, Jones remains humble about his own project and realistic about the challenges of studying animals in the wild. He feels lucky to be doing his work in another place with so many interesting birds.Overhead, vultures circle and white cattle egrets dart past sprawling treetops. Parrots and parakeets chatter from clusters of branches, and Jones points at one in particular. “Crimson-fronted parakeet,” he says. On days like this, when he’s at work with his volunteers in nature, attempting to catch wild toucans, he marvels at how well things have worked out.“I’m doing exactly what I want to do,” he says. “And I live in Costa Rica.” Facebook Comments From the print editionTURRIALBA, Cartago – “Listen. This might not work,” Landon Jones disclaims even before he has introduced himself.Jones is standing in an overgrown backyard in Turrialba’s Tropical Agricultural Research and Higher Education Center (CATIE), east of San José, holding a net attached to a string he recently shot over a nearby tree with a crossbow. The 33-year-old Iraq War veteran – who also happens to be a Mormon and a father of four – is dressed in a college T-shirt that says “Ragin’ Cajuns.”He’s trying to catch a wild toucan. Since January, Jones has been netting the birds, equipping them with radio transmitters and tracking them in their natural habitat. It’s part of research he’s conducting as a Fulbright scholar and doctorate student at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette, in the United States.By monitoring the toucans, Jones hopes to better understand the role these birds play in reforestation, specifically in areas that have been cleared for agricultural purposes. Focusing primarily on their herbivorous eating patterns and mobility, Jones seeks to map the likely locations of bird droppings and regurgitations that contain viable seeds. – See pictures by Tico Times photographer Gabe Dinsmoor No related posts.last_img read more

Lamb said among the most famous was the 1983 case of a 3-year-old kidnapped from her Denver-area neighborhood. The girl was found by birdwatchers three days later, at the bottom of a mountain outhouse pit.Her kidnapper had been detained just after she disappeared, then released. She picked him out of a photo lineup, telling police: “That one; he did it. He put me in the hole.” Police issued an arrest warrant that day for Robert Thiret, who was later convicted in the kidnapping.And in 2010, a Tennessee man named Jessie Dotson was convicted in the 2008 murders of his two young nephews, his brother, his brother’s girlfriend and two family friends, in large part on the testimony of a nephew who was 9 the day of the attack. The boy, who survived a knife blade plunged into his skull, pointed to his uncle in the courtroom and said the killer was “right there.”___John Heilprin in Annecy, France contributed to this report.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Top Stories center_img “When it comes to the probe we cannot base the outcome of the investigation on what a severely injured 7-year-old girl says,” the prosecutor said Wednesday.But Michael Lamb, a Cambridge University professor of psychology who specializes in child witnesses, said both girls could potentially help investigators. They could, he said, say what language was spoken, whether the car was stopped unexpectedly and whether they recognized the attacker.What is key, Lamb emphasized, is letting a child speak freely, without interrupting or leading the conversation in a particular direction.“We all think that it’s really easy to talk to a young child, and the fact is, it actually isn’t. It takes quite a lot of skill to conduct an interview in a way that simply provides a platform that encourages a child to keep talking.”Pitfalls abound. Many of the daycare sex abuse scandals of the 1980s and 1990s in the U.S. resulted in wrongful convictions and outlandish stories.Among the most notable was the McMartin Preschool case in Southern California, with its bizarre tales of underground tunnels and satanic sacrifices. The trial _ the most expensive in the U.S. _ lasted seven years and involved hundreds of children, only to end in 1990 with no convictions on unreliable and, experts say, coerced testimony. But it’s a delicate task. There are plenty of examples of investigators botching interviews with child witnesses, sometimes with devastating results.“Children that age are capable of providing tremendously accurate long-term memories,” said Stephen Ceci, a professor of developmental psychology at Cornell University who has studied child witnesses. However, he said, children’s memories are susceptible to corruption if interviews go badly at the outset of an investigation.The most important thing, he said, is to develop a rapport and ask open questions. “You resist the impulse to start providing cues.”In the case of the two British girls, Ceci said native English speakers would be vital.“There are all these really nuanced aspects of a language,” he said.Eric Maillaud, the prosecutor leading the investigation in France, told The Associated Press that the younger girl described hearing a shout that might have come from an assailant, but could not specify a language. “What can you expect from a terrorized 4-year-old girl?” he added.As for the older girl, Maillaud said she had reached “the age of reason” but was still unlikely to unravel the case.

first_img With the latest bank failure tallying up numbers for 2011 at 64, lawmakers convened a field hearing in Georgia Tuesday to determine whether risk-wary authorities are to blame for folding institutions and federal rescues. Appearing as witnesses, several bank presidents complained of a stifling regulatory environment, which federal regulatory authorities, in turn, portrayed as needed and helpful in the wake of the financial crisis.[IMAGE]Signaling the subcommittee mien, “”Rep. Spencer Bachus””:http://bachus.house.gov/ (R-Alabama), chairman of the “”House Financial Services Committee””:http://financialservices.house.gov/, said in a “”statement””:http://financialservices.house.gov/News/DocumentSingle.aspx?DocumentID=255544 that lawmakers “”cannot allow regulatory micromanagement of community banks to stifle prudent lending… Bank examiners must recognize the risks of over-regulation, and particularly avoid subjecting smaller financial institutions to undue regulatory burdens.””In step with the committee chairman, “”Rep. Lynn Westmoreland””:http://westmoreland.house.gov/ (R-Georgia), likewise a vocal critic of federal regulation, called attention to the collapse of 67 banks around the state since 2009. According to the “”FDIC””:http://www.fdic.gov/, this year’s 64 failures followed 157 from last year, which built on 140 failures over 2009, totaling 380 failures since 2008. Over 325 of the institutions that failed are community banks with less than $10 billion in total assets.On the whole, bankers highlighted the distress brought about by a dented market for commercial real estate and faulted federal authorities for a heavy-handed approach to banking regulation.Chuck Copeland, CEO of the “”First National Bank of Griffin””:https://www.fnb-griffinonline.com/home/home, colored the regulatory environment as one of “”mixed messages”” that he said included overly harsh examiners’ reports, an unwillingness on the parts of regulators to disclose information, and a climate that cast banks as excessive risk-takers.Reacting to these portrayals, he asked, “”Did we have a role setting ourselves up to become victims? No doubt. But did we recklessly pursue growth and earnings at all cost with no regard to the other elements of the mission? Never!””[COLUMN_BREAK]Copeland added that “”we have found the field examiners less willing to disclose conclusions and very guarded in acknowledging progress in those areas where we may have been performing well.””V. Michael Rossetti, president of “”Ravin Homes””:http://www.ravinhomes.com/, distinguished between the message and the messenger by highlighting his relationships with examiners and “”the lack of common business sense use in the interpretation of the regulations.””In a past interview with _MReport_, Richard Eckman, a managing partner at “”Pepper Hamilton LLP””:http://www.pepperlaw.com/ and chair of the law firm’s financial services practice group, called federal guidance ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô a subject of note at the field hearing ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô “”regulation in disguise.””Eckman said that “”banking regulatory agencies are famous for issuing guidance,”” which remains controversial as a way for federal agencies to ride around extensive rule-making requirements.””If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck,”” he said.Speaking to the issue, Kevin Bertsch, associate director of banking supervision and regulation at the “”Federal Reserve””:http://www.federalreserve.gov/, called bank-examination guidance “”necessary to assess capital adequacy, asset quality, management and board oversight, earnings, liquidity, and sensitivity to market risk.””Reading from a prepared statement, Bret Edwards, the FDIC’s director of resolutions and receiverships, attempted to dispel the controversy by saying that the agency remained “”keenly aware of the significant hardship of bank failures on communities in Georgia and across the country.””He attributed fewer failures on the part of problem banks to “”corrective measures”” taken by the FDIC, asserting that “”most banks across the country are in sound condition, well capitalized and profitable.””The field hearing is the latest in a series of actions taken by Congress and Rep. Westmoreland in particular to stem the collapse of banks and curb regulation along largely partisan lines. In late July the House passed a bill that would require the FDIC’s inspector general to examine what role, if any, the current regulatory infrastructure plays in undermining the credit supply for community banks.The bill, co-sponsored by Rep. Westmoreland, awaits action from the Democratic Senate. in Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Bank Failures Hearing Goes After Regulators August 16, 2011 433 Views center_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Bank Failure FDIC Federal Reserve Investors Lenders & Servicers Processing Service Providers 2011-08-16 Ryan Schuette Sharelast_img read more

It’s been 60 years since Willie O’Ree broke the National Hockey League’s colour barrier and he still hears racial remarks in the rink. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Tijana Martin by Victoria Ahearn, The Canadian Press Posted May 2, 2019 8:44 am PDT TORONTO — It’s been 60 years since Willie O’Ree broke the National Hockey League’s colour barrier and he still hears racial remarks in the rink.As the new documentary “Willie” shows, the Fredericton native who became the first black hockey player in the NHL is still working hard to foster diversity in sports and help young players overcome obstacles and hatred.“I still go to the games and I watch and still see racial remarks and slurs directed to the players and I just shake my head,” the 83-year-old said in an interview in Toronto, where the film is screening at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival.“I still just can’t believe it. When I played, there were only six teams in the National Hockey League — there were two from Canada and four from the United States — and there was the prejudice there. But now we have 31 teams and more players that are playing now and I just can’t believe what’s going on.“It’s not going to end overnight. It’s going to take still a long time to overcome the racial problems that we have in hockey.”Directed by Montreal-raised Laurence Mathieu-Léger, “Willie” shows just how fiercely determined O’Ree was to play professional hockey and skate in the NHL — goals he set at age 14.Growing up in Fredericton, the youngest of 13 children, he would sleep overnight at the skating arena so he could get on the ice first thing the next morning.The gifted athlete excelled at many sports and was even scouted by agents for the Milwaukee Braves minor-league baseball training camp in Atlanta, where he witnessed the segregation of the American South for the first time. While there, he had to use the “coloured only” rest room, sleep in a dorm with other players of colour, and stay at the back of the bus on the ride home, he recalled.“When I stepped off the bus, I said, ‘Willie, forget about baseball and concentrate on hockey.’”But racism also followed O’Ree in hockey and as he rose in the ranks of the sport, he faced another major hurdle: A puck ricocheted off a stick on the ice and hit his face, breaking his nose, part of his cheek and shattering the retina in his right eye.He ended up blind in that eye but kept it a secret from everyone except his younger sister, who didn’t tell anyone, just so he could keep playing. Five to six weeks later, he was back on the ice.Hockey great Wayne Gretzky is among those in the doc who speak about how remarkable O’Ree was for persevering through it all and eventually making his NHL debut with the Boston Bruins on Jan. 18, 1958.“Besides being black and being blind, I was faced with four other things: racism, prejudice, bigotry and ignorance,” O’Ree said, noting he faced racial slurs in practically every game he played.“But my older brother told me, ‘Willie, names will never hurt you unless you let them.’”The doc also shows O’Ree tracing the history of his ancestors, one of whom escaped slavery in the South.O’Ree retired from professional hockey in 1980.These days he is an ambassador for the NHL’s Hockey is for Everyone program, which pushes for “a safe, positive and inclusive environment for players and families.” The doc shows him mentoring young players, some of whom have encountered racism on the ice.“I’ve come into contact with numerous boys and girls and helped them to overcome some of the racial slurs and racial remarks that have been directed towards them,” O’Ree said.“I mean 10, 11, 12, 13-year-old boys and girls coming off the ice because of racial remarks and I just can’t understand it. It really hurts me to know that these boys and girls are still faced with it at this day and age.”As the film shows, O’Ree is also now a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame, after being inducted last November.“You can do anything you set your mind to do, if you feel it within your heart and within your mind,” he said.Mathieu-Léger said the film was “an opportunity to shed light on his incredible story and inspire people and also to make them remember.”“You need to remember what people fought for and that we can’t just say whatever we want,” she said.“We live in contentious times politically and there’s been this new comfort to say whatever you want about anyone, and people fought really hard to be respected, all marginalized groups. So Willie’s story I think invites everyone in and helps everyone to feel compassion.”Victoria Ahearn, The Canadian Press Willie O’Ree doc shows the racism he faced that still exists in hockeylast_img read more
