For the birds Sarapiquí EcoObservatory

first_imgNo related posts. Dorothy MacKinnon On a recent visit to the observatory, I met Judy Bellah, a professional travel photographer from Sonoma, California, in the U.S. She was wrapping up a two-week tour of Costa Rica with a last-shot stop here. I had just asked Dave Landos how many photographer-visitors are women. “One, so far,” he said, indicating Bellah, which made a total of two. With camera, high-poweredlenses, camera bag and tripod slung over her shoulders, it’s easy to see why most nature photographers are male. “I have to work out at the gym to build up my arm strength to carry all this gear,” Bellah admitted.The Canon 300mm f/2.8 lens she had rented for $600 (it would cost about $7,000 to buy), though heavy at 5 pounds, was ideal for blurring the out-of-focus background, creating a soft watercolor-like backdrop, she said. Like many photographers, Bellah subscribes to the purist philosophy of discovering her own photo ops in the wild, rather than relying on bird feeders. But for visitors short on time and still hoping to capture that perfect shot, the Eco-Observatory offers an excellent opportunity to get some first-rate photos, especially in the early morning when bird activity is usually at its busiest.Accessibility is another major plus here, with no steps or slippery trails to navigate, especially for mobility-challenged birders or for would-be nature-documentarians lugging lots of gear. It’s also dry and comfortable. And, best of all, for bird-watchers and photographers accustomed to tucking their pant legs into their rubber boots to avoid itchy bites, there are no chiggers!Going ThereThe Eco-Observatory is located in La Virgen, 14 km west of Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí and is open from 7 a.m.-4 p.m. daily. Birdwatchers and photographers can roam around the grounds for $15, or take a two- or three-hour guided bird-watching tour for $20 or $30. Photo sessions are $50 for a set three-hour session, 7-10 a.m.; 10 a.m.-1 p.m., or 1-4 p.m. There are also guided night walks, $20, and tree-planting tours, $15. Half-day reptile and frog photography sessions start at $250 per person. More info: 2761-0801; is Big Business…You know there’s a profitable trend when Hollywood makes a movie about it. “The Big Year” stars Steve Martin as an amateur birder, counting as many bird species as he can in one year.Here are a few more birding market indicators to ponder:*Historically, birders form the largest single group of eco-tourists. A 1999 study by the Costa Rican Tourism Board estimated that 41 percent of Costa Rica’s $1 billion of tourist income that year came from birders.*A recent National Survey on Recreation and the Environment undertaken by the U.S. Department of Agriculture found that birding was the fastest-growing outdoor recreational activity in the U.S., and estimated that the number of birders in the U.S. had increased by 332 percent between 1983 and 2002.*The American Birding Association estimates that U.S. birders in 1996 (even before digital photography took off) spent about $7.6 billion on trip-related expenses, including gear, and that 49 percent of their members have gone abroad to bird, spending about $4,000 per trip.*Decades of watching nature documentaries on television, combined with advances in affordable digital technology, have inspired millions to take up wildlife photography, spending between $10,000 and $30,000 on their equipment.Always in the forefront of eco-tourism trends, Costa Rica is catering to this growing flock of amateur and professional wildlife photographers with more and more tours geared to nature photography in the wild, including these Costa Rica-based tour operators:Foto Verde Tours – workshops for serious photographers with professional nature photographer Greg Basco; Rica Birding Journeys – tours for residents and visitors, limited to 4-6 people, searching photo ops in the wild with bird guide Randall Ortega; Feathers – customized bird-watching tour dedicated to photography with guide Noel Ureña; Photo Safari – for all levels of photographers, from novice to expert; Rica Gateway – custom photography tours with expert guide/photographer Steven Easley; Facebook Comments From the print edition“Ready for your close-up?”Instead of shooting movie stars, visitors are shooting birds of a different feather at the new Sarapiquí Eco-Observatory in La Virgen, 14 kilometers west of Puerto Viejo de Sarapiquí, in north-central Costa Rica. For nature enthusiasts toting top-of-the-line digital cameras loaded with huge, high-powered lenses, this six-month-old operation offers a picture-perfect outdoor studio. In the midst of one of the birdiest parts of the country, the Eco-Observatory backs onto the 850-acre Tirimbina Biological Reserve rain forest, and is within a 20-minute drive of famed birding mecca, La Selva Biological Station. Not surprisingly, the observatory property is officially designated a birding hotspot by eBird, a birding website, and it also recently became a tour destination for National Geographic Expeditions.This is also one of the wettest parts of the country, so having a spacious, covered deck where you can set up tripods for expensive camera gear is a godsend. Add in Wi-Fi for downloading photos onto computers and flash sticks, electrical outlets for recharging batteries, some comfortable seating and a wrap-around counter to rest elbows on, plus unlimited coffee and cool water, with fresh, clean restrooms nearby, and you have an ideal habitat for both birdwatchers and photographers. Build it and they will come. That was the hope of father-and-son Eco-Observatory owners David and Dave Landos. David managed a citrus farm in the area 25 years ago and snapped up this property when a plantation went bankrupt. Son Dave was born in Costa Rica and lived here until he was 7, before moving to California with the family. But tropical nature was ingrained in his bones, and after completing environmental studies at Santa Clara College, he was keen to return to Costa Rica and turn the family property into a sustainable tourist operation.The birds were already here, 215 species at the latest count. And, so far, more than 600 visitors have setup cameras and scopes on the Eco-Observatory’s viewing decks.What sets this venue apart is the main photo set-up, designed by professional nature photographer Greg Basco, who is based in Zarcero, Alajuela. Similar to those used by professional nature photographers for National Geographic, Animal Planet and BBC nature films, the setup consists of a teepee of branches, with spikes for attaching enticing chunks of fruits. Photographers can request different kinds of branches, moss and leaves to picturesquely frame their avian photo subjects. A swath of grass and garden beyond the arrangement provides the perfect soft, green background for close-up shots, especially in morning light.When the light shifts in the afternoon, photographers focus their cameras on a horizontal monkey-ladder vine, behind the viewing deck. It’s a picture-perfect perch for toucans that generally arrive when the afternoon light is just right. As well as the main birding deck, visitors can meander through the small botanical garden, where pejibaye palms, cecropias, heliconias and an array of plants attractive to birds create a biological corridor between nearby forest patches. At the bottom of the garden is a covered patio with close-up vantage points for observing hummingbirds at feeders. A third viewing deck is perhaps the most spectacular, at least for birders with a scope. It overlooks the Tirimbina rain forest, with an eye-level view into the canopy. Local bird guide and popular bird blogger Patrick O’Donnell recently set up his scope here to scan the treetops for canopy-perched birds, such as snowy cotinga, and raptors such as hawk-eagles and gray-headed kites that frequent the sky above. He recently logged 85 species at the Eco-Observatory in three hours (you can view his trip report at can find more potential bird models, such as broad-billed motmots, perched along a well-groomed forest trail that drops 50 meters down to the Sarapiquí River, where kingfishers and sunbitterns are regularly spotted.If reptiles and amphibians are your preferred choice of photo subjects, you can have your pick from more than 60 species, including pit vipers, boa constrictors, pythons, poison-dart frogs and basilisk lizards that live in the neighboring Reptile Learning Center. In partnership with father-son herpetologists Pompilio Campos Sr. and Jr., the Eco-Observatory arranges four-hour photo ops, featuring your choice of eight creatures from the serpentario’s collection. Photographers can shoot away in safety, while Campos Sr. and Jr. pose the animals and share their 25-year store of reptilian lore.center_img Dorothy MacKinnon Photograher Judy Bellah.

Costa Rican house size is measured under the roof

first_imgNot all home buyers know what house size they are really looking for. Most would say they’re looking for a 3-bedroom / 2-bath home with a large terrace and a pool, or something like that. Few buyers will say they’re looking for a 2,250 square foot home, would they?The house size may not be the most needed information before buying a home, but it is still important info to make a final decision to purchase. When a buyer sees that a home has only 2,250 square feet, they might think the house is way too small for them, or too large.In some parts of the world, the listed house size is indoor space. That means that the listed size has to be heated or air-conditioned. Not so in Costa Rica.Under the roofCosta Rican house size is the square footage measured under roof. That means that we include not only interior, but also any exterior space that is under the roof, such carports and terraces. Everything else under the roof is measured as full size, although often incorrectly.Good builders and real estate agents will take covered exterior spaces at half size because they’re not fully enclosed. The finished walls are also included in the home size. Double height or slanted ceilings are usually not included in the size, even though they should be. Attics and cellars are either non-existent or forgotten.You will often find that the listed house size listed incorrect. Many sellers and realtors will just measure the length of the home and multiply it by the width. Et voilà: we have the exact home size that everybody thinks it is. I know, it sounds very unprofessional, but that’s how it works.Construction plansEvery house starts with building plans. I have seen hundreds of construction plans in my real estate career, but very few that carry the total size of the construction. Someone interested in finding out what the size of the house is or even the size of any room needs to use a measuring tape and a calculator.In m2In Costa Rica, we measure construction in square meters or m2, which is equivalent to 10.79 square feet. For easy calculation, multiply the home size in m2 by 11. A linear meter is 3.28 feet.You can learn about the secrets of Costa Rica real estate measurement conversion in another Tico Times article.Real estate listingsIn Costa Rica, the legally considered living space does not matter when you place an ad. The property size is measured by a surveyor, then registered in the National Registry. The house size, on the other hand, is not registered in the National Registry and therefore not used in the real estate deed.Nonetheless, in my opinion, the property size on online listings should be as correct as possible. The construction plans are the only documents that possibly prove the correct size. Often, changes are made during construction and rooms are enlarged or added on without the proper permits.The only way to find out the correct house size is to use a measuring tape and a calculator and do it yourself.Additional buildingI always ask our agents to use the house size in the listing overview. Any additional buildings that are not part of the main house can be explained in the property description. That way, gazebos, a guesthouse, a caretaker’s house and a tennis court will not be included in the home size.You will often see parking spaces and storage area included in the floor size of a condominium listing. Whether a parking space has its separate title or is included in the common area of the condominium, I’d prefer to have it shown separately.Exclusive listing or FSBOSellers like to see the correct house size used in a listing. If you plan to have your property listed as an open listing, or as an FSBO, you could measure the home and give everybody the correct size. In case you sign an exclusive listing agreement with a realtor, let the realtor do the job for you.If you don’t have a measuring tape, you can download a measurement app on your phone, although most are not very accurate. Quite a few homebuyers like to see room sizes in real estate listings as they can compare them to the rooms of their own home.Making offersIf you’re the seller, make sure the advertised home size is correct before making an offer on a home, so it can be used to compare with other listings you are untested in. Ask the seller or agent the following questions:Where did the listing house size come from?What is the living area’s square footage and what is the exterior square footage?Are any additions added to the home counted in the square footage?Ivo Henfling, a Dutch expat who has lived in Costa Rica since 1980, founded the American-European Real Estate Group back in 1999 which was the first functioning MLS with affiliate agents from coast to coast.

Costa Rica closes 2018 with decrease in homicides

first_imgRelated posts:Costa Rica court convicts U.S. investor of fraud UPDATE: Suspect in slaying of US-Costa Rican family captured in Nicaragua Liberty Reserve founder gets 20 years in prison for money laundering Michigan fugitive John Saatio to be extradited Saturday For the first time since 2012, Costa Rica closed a year with a decrease in the number of homicides.The Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ) recorded 587 homicides for the calendar year, Minister of Public Safety Michael Soto announced in a press conference. In 2017, OIJ reported a record-breaking 603 homicides.“This is tremendously relevant, because since 2012 [the number of homicides] registered a significant ascent, and in 2017 a historical record was broken,” Soto said.The encouraging trend comes despite a first quarter of 2018 which was the most violent on record. A new initiative from Soto, who was appointed by President Carlos Alvarado in May, was highlighted as instrumental on helping to curb the murder rate.Dubbed a “Megaoperativo,” the strategy involves twice-weekly coordinated efforts with all the nation’s police force to target high-crime areas at high-incident times.Soto’s goal was to finish below last 2017’s record-breaking murder tally, which authorities blamed on drug trafficking and score-settling between gangs.Despite the reduction in homicides, the 2018 data still works out to 11.7 murders per 100,000 occupants in Costa Rica — above the rate of 10 per 100,000 the World Health Organization considers as a baseline for an “epidemic.”Soto said 2018’s decrease in homicides was accompanied by historical figures in the seizure of drugs and weapons. Last year, 33.6 tons of cocaine, 6.7 tons of marijuana and 470 kilos of heroin were seized.Additionally, 2,155 weapons — the majority of them pistols — were confiscated.This story was updated Jan. 3 at 9:15 a.m. with further information from AFP. Thanks for reading The Tico Times.

LOS ANGELES Calif – The family of Bill Paxton ha

first_img LOS ANGELES, Calif. – The family of Bill Paxton has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a Los Angeles hospital and the surgeon who performed the actor’s heart surgery shortly before he died.The suit filed Friday against Cedars-Sinai Medical Center alleges the surgeon, used a “high risk and unconventional surgical approach” that was unnecessary and that he lacked the experience to perform, and that he downplayed the procedure’s risks.And it alleges the hospital knew the surgeon, Dr. Ali Khoynezhad, tended to “engage in maverick surgeries and show suboptimal judgment.”The misguided treatment caused Paxton to suffer excessive bleeding, cardiogenic shock and a compromised coronary artery, the suit alleges.Paxton’s death certificate says he died Feb. 25, 2017, from a stroke, 11 days after surgery to replace a heart valve and repair aorta damage. He was 61.“Bill Paxton and his family trusted the physicians and staff at this medical facility but instead Cedars-Sinai betrayed their trust,” the family’s attorney Bruce Broillet said in a statement. “The surgeon’s actions resulted in this tragic and preventable death.”Paxton’s widow, Louise, and children, James and Lydia, brought the lawsuit. It seeks unspecified damages and reserves the right to add more defendants who work for the hospital as their roles and names become clear.Cedars-Sinai said it could not offer public comment about Paxton’s case.“State and federal privacy laws prevent us from commenting about patient care without written authorization,” a statement said. “Nothing is more important to Cedars-Sinai than the health and safety of our patients. These remain our top priorities. One of the reasons for our high quality is that we thoroughly review concerns about any patient’s medical care. This process ensures that we can continue to provide the highest quality care.”Khoynezhad has since left Cedars-Sinai for another hospital. An after-hours message left seeking comment from him was not immediately returned.The lawsuit comes just before the first anniversary of the death of Paxton, who played major supporting roles in the films “Apollo 13,” ”Titanic,” and “Aliens,” and starred in the HBO series “Big Love.”Paxton, who was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, was among the industry’s busiest actors, with nearly 100 credits, and was starring in the CBS drama “Training Day” when he died. by Andrew Dalton, The Associated Press Posted Feb 13, 2018 4:56 pm PDT Last Updated Feb 14, 2018 at 8:00 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this May 31, 2015 file photo, Bill Paxton arrives at the Critics’ Choice Television Awards at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.

an election expected to result in a landslide for former military chief Abdul Fattah al-Sisi Sisi who overthrew elected President Mohamed Morsi from power last year had called for a high turnout in hopes of securing a political mandate The reports of low participation threatened to undercut the credibility of Sisis otherwise inexorable march to the presidency His sole challenger left-winger Hamdeen Sabahi came third in the 2012 election and was not expected to pose a threat to Sisi’s campaign But political fatigue perceptions that the outcome was pre-determined widespread boycotts and scorching hot weather may yet pose a threat to Sisi’s standing; all drove down turnout in the election which began on Monday and had been scheduled to end at 10 PM on Tuesday The last-minute extension announced by the Presidential Election Commission also followed several other measures intended to increase turnout Prime Minister Ibrahim Mehleb declared Tuesday a national holiday One member of the Election Commission claimed judges would enforce an obscure rule that imposes a 500 Egyptian pound ($70) fine for not voting without a valid excuse "The reports Im seeing in terms of the turnout suggest something is not going as planned as far as the interim authorities are concerned They certainly seem to be taken aback and what were seeing is them scrambling to try and deal with that" said Aziz El-Kaissouni a visiting fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations "A large component of that is political apathy and a very good question is why bother go out and vote when you know the result beforehand" he said "Why should I take several hours out of my work day or my holiday as it may be and stand in line in the sweltering heat when we know exactly what the outcome is" In Cairo on Tuesday some polling stations bustled with voters Others were deserted A half hour after the polls opened in a school in Giza a single man stood in the voting booth The judge in charge of the room gestured with a pen toward the ballot box Only about 600 of the districts approximately 4000 registered voters had participated so far "Its still early" he said In the neighborhood of Imbaba historically a redoubt of Islamism and political opposition a steady trickle of voters came and went from two polling places At one school the judge descended to the courtyard to help a 100-year-old woman who could not climb the stairs to the voting booths "Do you want Sisi or Sabahi" he asked The woman pointed to Sisi The overwhelming majority of voters interviewed expressed support for Sisi Alia Mohamed 23 an elementary school teacher said she backed the former army chief "Honestly hes the best person to hold the country" Some people in her neighborhood opposed Sisi she said "but theyre sitting at home" On Tuesday evening as the heat began to ease turnout picked up at a large school in another section of Giza a hub for four different electoral districts A row of armored personnel carriers lined the street outside A small crowd waving Egyptian flags and a few Sisi posters rallied outside the entrance Speakers pumped patriotic music Armed soldiers and police some wearing black face-masks guarded the demonstration A small but vocal minority of voters expressed support for Sabahi In upscale Mohandessin a woman who declined to give her name due to an institutional affiliation said she voted for Sisi’s rival “just to make a point that it was not a landslide" She said she was skeptical of Sisi "Thats not what people died for three years ago" she said referring to the 2011 uprising that ended the 30-year autocratic rule of president Hosni Mubarak Among Sisis supporters jitters about low turnout spilled over on Monday nights talk shows with several hosts angrily condemning voters for lackluster participation "Im willing to cut my veins for the country right now on air for people to go down and vote" said an anchor on the show Al Qahera Al Youm "Egypt is entering a phase of authoritarian restoration that’s not simply Mubarak 20 Mubarak inherited power from Sadat in a relatively smooth transition with no serious rivals or an upsurge from below" said Mona El-Ghobashy a political scientist at Barnard and expert on Egyptian politics "Sisi takes the reins in a far more challenging political environment" "Unlike Mubarak he’s keen to organize periodic mass spectacles endorsing his person and his policies to appropriate and channel the authentic mass mobilization made possible by the uprising" she said "But as the embarrassingly low turnout for the elections shows there are limits to how much Sisi can script mass public support Even his core constituency will tire of being trotted out every few months to perform its adoration absent an improvement in daily life conditions" Contact us at editors@timecomRepublicans in Congress have argued that they must pass their tax reform proposal to keep their voters happy as the party heads toward the 2018 midterm elections But it’s an open question how the Republican tax plan would affect the average Trump voter “I think it would impact different parts of the base differently” says William Gale chairman of the Brookings Institute’s Economic Studies and who served as an economic adviser to President George HW Bush “The rich donors who are part of the base would come out quite nicely from this proposal The proverbial kind of lower-middle-class worker is not going to benefit as much particularly when the financing of the tax cut is taken into account” Called the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act the tax proposal would reduce the number of tax brackets from seven to five immediately cut the corporate tax rate to 20% and nearly double the standard deduction for individuals and married couples in exchange for limiting or eliminating several popular deductions When you think of President Trump’s base you might think of white working-class voters struggling in a rapidly shifting global economy But several analyses have challenged that assumption Statistician Nate Silver for one found that during the Republican primaries the median household income for Trump voters was $72000 or about $20000 higher than the overall median income at the time (Silver got the data from exit polls in 23 primary states) Meantime Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton split the vote among wealthy Americans defined as those making over $250000 And it was Clinton not Trump who received more overall support from lower-income voters she won with 53% of voters making under $30000 annually and 52% of those making between $30000 and $49000 If you start with Silver’s data and assume the median household income of a Trump supporter is about $72000 then those voters would get a tax cut from the Republican tax plan Data compiled by The New York Times show that individuals with incomes between $19050 and $77400 would be taxed at 12% under the plan rather than the current 15% Those Americans would also likely benefit from the expanded standard deduction and the increase in child tax credits according to Nicole Kaeding an economist with the Center for State Tax Policy at the Tax Foundation “There are a number of ways that these sort of individuals would likely see a tax cut” she says Still Gale said the Republican proposal is best assessed on an individual basis “If you tell me to look at someone with a half a million dollars or a millions dollars in income it would be pretty straightforward to say they were going to get a very big tax cut” he said “For somebody in [a lower income bracket] it’s just hard there are very many moving parts Some of those people might end up with tax increases some with tax reductions You just can’t give a number based on the income level” The Tax Foundation has provided hypotheticals about how families of different incomes would fare under the current plan For a family of four earning $85000 the Foundation estimates that their after-tax income would increase by 14 percent and benefit from the child tax credits and an overall saving of ten percent This seems aligned with the assessment provided by Doug Hall the Director of Economic and Fiscal policy at the Economic Progress Institute Hall explained that middle income families like the one above will benefit but argued the gains would be modest in comparison to what could have been achieved with the lost revenue from tax cuts “[The relief] seem appealing at first glance but when we recognize the price thats being paid in terms of provisions of programs and services that are important for improving the fabric of our nation that price tag is probably too high” Hall explained “What the whole thing really is is an attempt to get everybody else on board for what is essentially a huge tax cut for the very wealthy and for corporations” Indeed Gale warned that there’s good cause for less wealthy Americans to be alarmed about the Republican plan: Many of the proposal’s cuts for Americans at the top are likely to be funded by cuts elsewhere “What’s clear is that this is a very high tax cut for high income households and that the tax cut has to be paid for
