first_imgA total of 12,654 Tico expats on Feb. 2 will vote from abroad to elect a new Costa Rican president for the first time in the country’s history.President of the Supreme Elections Tribunal (TSE) Luis Antonio Sobrado on Friday confirmed that polling centers will be enabled in 52 consulates within 42 countries.Also for the first time ever, voters in 31 countries – 98 percent of the total from abroad – will vote using an electronic system consisting of an ultrabook computer and a printer. TSE officials will personally deliver the devices to those consulates with at least 50 registered voters.Consulates with less than that number of voters will use paper ballots that also will be transported by TSE personnel from Costa Rica.Each polling center will have a board of at least three poll workers including a TSE official and volunteer citizens. If there are no volunteers, consulate or embassy staff will serve as poll workers.To cast a vote each person must present valid identification (cédula or passport) to a poll worker, who then will enable the voting software on the computer by entering a password that will be generated for each voter.Once the password is approved, the presidential ballot will be displayed on a touch screen, where the voter will select a candidate or choose to cast a blank vote.The system then will prompt the voter to confirm his selection and then it will print a receipt that will be inserted into a ballot box.In case the computer fails or the software becomes inoperable, the TSE official will be able to print paper ballots to continue the voting process using a pen.Sobrado confirmed that TSE will invest a total of ₡131 million ($262,000) in the logistics to allow Tico expats to vote in their countries of residence. That’s some ₡5,000 ($10) per voter.Consulates with the largest number of registered Tico voters are New York with 2,657, Los Angeles with 1,487, and Miami with 1,153.Those with fewer votes are in Belize (3), Trinidad & Tobago (4) and India (6), and there are no Ticos registered to vote in Jamaica.According to the Constitution, Costa Ricans voting abroad will be allowed to vote on the presidential and vice presidential races, but not to elect lawmakers.The results will be announced Feb. 2 at 6 p.m., Costa Rica time.

first_imgBEIRUT (AP) — Kurdish fighters besieged members of the Islamic State group Thursday in the northeastern city of Hassakeh as they pushed forward under the cover of airstrikes by the U.S.-led coalition, an activist group and the main Kurdish militia in Syria said.Kurdish fighters have been on the offensive in northern Syria since January, capturing large areas from the extremist group and controlling a long stretch along the border with Turkey. The IS group attacked several government-held southern neighborhoods in Hassakeh last month and troops have since failed to retake the areas. YPG fighters joined the battle, recently capturing several villages south of Hassakeh.Syria-based Kurdish official Mustafa Bali said members of the People’s Protection Units, or YPG, have cut all the roads linking Hassakeh with nearby IS strongholds in the province.The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the YPG said Kurdish fighters captured a juvenile prison and a power station south of Hassakeh on Thursday.“Daesh fighters are besieged inside the city,” Bali said by telephone using an Arabic acronym to refer to the Islamic State group. “The aim of YPG is to liberate Hasssakeh.”The YPG said on its Facebook page that “our fighters are now surrounding the mercenaries from all sides in the city.” It added that streets on the southern edge of Hassakeh are full of bodies of dead IS fighters and others have been taken prisoner.“Our units are advancing and have captured several strategic areas,” the YPG Facebook statement said.Before IS captured parts of Hassakeh last month, the city had been split between government and Kurdish forces. The Islamic State group holds a self-declared caliphate across roughly a third of Syria and neighboring Iraq.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

(Adam Green/Arizona Sports) Top Stories He added a forced fumble and a sack. Comments   Share   He’s not called the Honey Badger without reason.While Cardinals safety Tyrann Mathieu embodies the spirit of the honey badger, he also plays with the cleverness of the animal. Mathieu’s smarts help him to play multiple positions and in different coverages, but the combination of wit and ferocity is the key to his adaptability.It’s why ESPN Insider’s Matt Bowen calls Mathieu the most versatile defender in the entire NFL.center_img The most versatile defender in the NFL, Mathieu lines up all over the Cardinals’ secondary. With his range, coverage ability, ball skills and toughness, Mathieu can play outside of the numbers, roll down over the slot or patrol the deep middle of the field. Oh, and he can blitz, too. He’s going to get dirty and make plays versus the big boys. He can do it all for the Arizona defense. And I absolutely love his tape: tons of production from a variety of positions and coverage schemes in the secondary. You want to play matchups? Then this is your guy. Mathieu is the Swiss army knife every coach in the league is looking for.Mathieu can play cornerback, safety and nickelback. For that reason, his current contract negotiations with the Cardinals as he seeks a hefty extension have been complicated.In the last year of a four-year rookie deal, Mathieu wants to make the money as a top-tier NFL cornerback. But seeing as he’s utilized as a safety — they are generally paid less — Arizona may not be willing to open the checkbook to his likely.Before tearing his ACL last season in Week 15, Mathieu compiled 89 tackles (second-best on the Cardinals) and co-led the team with five interceptions.

right Ben has moved on to what Chris Harrison calls “the marriage capital of the world” Las Vegas Pretty sure that’s not a thing they actually call the town Harrison As the numbers of women swapping Crest White Strips and Daisy Razors as they vie for Ben’s heart dwindles the show is embarking on its annual traveling road show First stop Vegas Next the world Here’s what happened on The Bachelor: The First Date: Jo Jo who as far as we know is not a potato-based product gets the first one-on-one date in Vegas A helicopter lands on a rooftop knocking over the complimentary champagne and flipping a table better than a Real Housewife Ben and Jo Jo use the trauma of lost champagne as an excuse to make out not realizing that the copter has landed in full view of the hotel suite and all the women are watching them kiss Most of the women have the decency to avert their eyes but a few linger to gawk They are probably waiting to see if Jo Jo’s sleeveless trapeze crop top flies away like the champagne Later the producers make Jo Jo put on something not susceptible to falling victim to light breezes and Ben hands her a Date Rose without the producers bothering to show the date at all Too boring Too much drama later Too many sleeveless trapeze crop tops flying in the breeze Whatever the reason date’s over In case you were concerned Olivia is “zen with Ben” and is very confident in their relationship The Group Date: The producers have just a small date planned for Ben and Amanda Jubilee Caila Amber Haley Emily Leah both Laurens Jennifer Rachel and Olivia the opening slot at a Terry Fator show in front of 1200 people They’ll be showing off their talents which include Jubilee who plays the cello the twins who are dancers and Amanda who juggles Olivia doesn’t have a talent per se but claims she “doesn’t get embarrassed by anything” and promises to “stand out” “Bam Shabam” she declares and lest you worry that Olivia has cornered the market on ridiculous sayings before taking the stage to synchronize clog dance Haley and Emily announce that they are “in it to twin it” Eventually Olivia reveals that her secret talent is popping out of a cake in an outfit comprised solely of glitter and kicking her legs around awhile Cringe worthy does not quite cover it Olivia laughs and smiles her way through it and promptly has a panic attack after leaving the stage We know this because she keeps announcing “I’m having a panic attack I’m having a panic attack” as she shows herself into the Boyz II Men green room (only in Vegas) to panic in peace She then reminds herself that she came on the show “to be marriage material” and may have mucked that up Girl if Lauren H can dress like a joke-telling chicken and the twins can do a Riverdance you should be fine The After Party: Caila comes out of her shell in Vegas to the point that Ben calls her a “sex panther” which sounds pretty judge-y but is probably a compliment Lauren H is forced to share her alone time with Ben with a puppet (which is not a euphemism) Olivia is embarrassed in the wake of her performance but Ben swears it was all good She doesn’t believe him though because their conversation was awkward and stilted She apparently hasn’t realized that all of their conversations since their first date have been awkward and stilted (One word proof: Cankles) As everyone takes their turns with Ben Lauren B admits that she’s falling for Ben but she’s “scared to be in love” As Emily talks to Ben Olivia interrupts them to talk to Ben (again) to apologize (again) and hopes that she gets the Date Rose She doesn’t It goes to Lauren B instead because she told Ben that he might be her last first date ever like it was a good thing The Second Date: It’s Becca’s Big Day Ben invited her to marry …other people with him for their date Ben got ordained and is presiding over some ceremonies Proving how serious he is he unbuttons his three shirt buttons and greets the groom with a very sincere “What’s upppp” Becca swears he did great and they make out between weddings classy like Before heading home Ben takes Becca to an actually cool place Las Vegas’s Neon Museum a graveyard for the city’s famed neon signs Don’t let fear of The Bachelor‘s disease vectors keep you from visiting if you’re ever in Vegas Surrounded by neon signs Ben and Becca talk about the fact that she’s a virgin and he’s not and yet they are both Christians Then they kiss with Jesus undoubtedly smiling down upon their union Ben then makes some vows to Becca including weirdly “always making eye contact when they talk” which sounds potentially very awkward (Does he know she’s not Lace) Becca vows that “she’s in this” which is a terrible vow She gets a Date Rose anyway and tells the camera that she can see herself as the Future Mrs Ben Higgins Surprise Third Date: After talking to God and/or Becca Ben has a crisis of conscience and realizes he can’t continue to date sisters So finally the date of every perv’s dream finally comes true Ben is going on a two-on-one date with the twins But the show apparently doesn’t have a budget for a third glam date so he just takes them to hang out at their mom’s house with their wiener dog collection The twins get Ben’s debacle but as Emily says “Eventually he’ll find a twin he’ll feel deeper towards” Since Haley has gotten no screen time (unless they’ve got a Parent Trap thing going on) he chooses Emily He leaves Haley at home with her mom to spoon feed her Ben and Jerry’s and her four dachshunds to warm her toes Emily and Ben make out as Haley is left in the limo’s dust Christmas is going to be awko-taco The Cocktail Party: Now that Ben has sent Haley home to mom everyone knows he’s serious Olivia wants to talk to Ben immediately but she’s bested by Jen So Olivia interrupts her to feed Ben cake which is her true talent apparently “Olivia is here for you” declares Olivia Ben is here for a lot of people though He kisses Becca Caila Jubilee and pretty much everyone except Olivia The Rose Ceremony: Becca Lauren B,5.
