Mexican President Announces Plan to Restore Peace

first_img Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto made a critical diagnosis over national public insecurity and introduced a plan to restore peace on December 17, including dividing Mexico into five operative regions, as well as creating a gendarmerie. “Mexicans want a peaceful country,” Peña Nieto said to his security cabinet, state governors, legislative and justice representatives, and human rights observers. The head of state set diminishing “homicides, kidnappings, and extortions,” as top priority, for which he promised to execute programs, efforts and budgets as necessary. “There will be no improvisation,” he claimed. “Our national territory will be subdivided into five operative regions,” he added, and ordered the heads of different security corps to analyze every single area. The president, who urged the establishment of an authentic state policy that functions based on shared responsibility away from party interests, also ordered the creation of a “national gendarmerie” with 10,000 elements. Peña Nieto’s plan includes six main lines to fight crime: policy planning with clear goals, crime prevention by means of social security plans (for which he would dedicate resources worth $8,800 million dollars in 2013), respect for human rights, coordination and transformation of security institutions, and the evaluation of objectives. In recent years, the capture and defeat of top criminals “caused a fragmentation process within criminal organizations that are currently operating with a different logic; we went from a scheme of vertical leadership to a horizontal one, which makes them more violent and dangerous,” said Miguel Ángel Osorio Chong, Secretary of Government (Interior) during the ceremony. In Mexico, the homicide rate is similar to other countries in the Americas, although “we rank as one of the first worldwide due to the homicide growth rate,” expressed Osorio Chong, who said that only eight out of 100 crimes are reported in Mexico; however, only 15% of that is resolved, and only one out of 100 is punished. Mexican Attorney General Jesús Murillo, assured that his institution “is dragging” a structure that bears no relation to the current reality, since it was built in “a disrupted way (…) causing an uncoordinated fragmentation that blocks and makes its execution and functioning outdated.” By Dialogo December 19, 2012last_img read more

Why leaders must develop an outward mindset

first_imgYour mindset is the key to your success, your happiness, and your ability to perform at exceptional levels. Your mindset is how you look at yourself and the world around you. An internal mindset is one blind to others, what they need, and how to create collective results.Jim Ferrell, co-founder and Managing Partner of The Arbinger Institute is the author/co-author of multiple bestselling books, including Leadership and Self-Deception and The Anatomy of Peace.

6 of the Best – Twelve40’s Andy Jarrett

first_img Blockbuster! Victoria Racing books Taylor Swift for Melbourne Cup Day September 12, 2019 This week’s 6 of the Best comes from Andy Jarrett, Twelve40 CEO.Continue reading to discover why Melbourne conjures up both good and bad memories memories and which Quentin Tarantino classic is a particular favourite, amongst much more.Best HolidayI’m very lucky to have visited some amazing places, but if I had to pick one I’d say the Maldives. It was technically my honeymoon, but we had such a great time, that I’d rank it as my best holiday too!  The best part was diving with whale sharks (just don’t tell the wife!)I also love the Strawberry Hill Resort in Jamaica, which is nestled in the blue mountains overlooking Kingston. It’s a great mountaintop getaway and the food and drink are second to none.Best Album I’ve listened to plenty over the years, and it really depends on my mood, but the one that sticks out is Oasis’ (What’s the story) Morning Glory. I loved listening to it when I was younger and I still enjoy it now, it’s a fantastic album by a timeless band. Though nowadays, with streaming services being so prevalent, I do tend to stream a lot of my music through playlists.Best Sporting ExperienceThey say it’s the race that stops a nation and it certainly didn’t disappoint! I was very fortunate to go to the Melbourne Cup a few years ago and I was blown away by the whole event. Not only is it top quality horse racing, but the atmosphere was absolutely incredible and you feel very immersed in the whole extravaganza. I really would recommend it to any sports fan, it’s an event that you must go and be a part of.Best FilmOf the classics, Pulp Fiction is one of my favourite movies. I’m also a big fan of a newer film called The Business which stars Danny Dyer, believe it or not. It’s got some great 80s music too, though I’m not sure about the outfits! I watched Runner Runner recently which was another film which I enjoyed. Justin Timberlake really underlined his acting credentials, and it’s very relevant to the gambling industry which certainly helps.Best Book I’d have to say How I Became Putin’s No 1 Enemy by Bill Browder. It’s based on a true story, and it’s thrilling from cover to cover. I really struggled when it came to putting the book down. It’s is a gripping read, and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to pick up an enjoyable new book.  Best Bet The worst bet I’ve made was when I was at the Melbourne Cup. I’m not the most knowledgeable when it comes to betting on the horses, but my friend, who is an avid racing fan, told me to bet on the first three races and suggested also putting them in a trifecta. Having no idea what one of those was, I ignored him, he bet on my trifecta and unsurprisingly he won a lot more than I did! It’s the last time I’ll ignore him when it comes to betting. 6 of the Best: SEM Global’s Philip Canavan August 1, 2019 Share StumbleUpon Submit Related Articles OpenSports hits 35,000 bets per minute high for Melbourne Cup November 14, 2019 Sharelast_img read more
