Picnic and calypso good weekend bets

By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

The weather looks good for weekend activities, including the American Colony Committee picnic Saturday.

The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional warned of high winds for today that might cause some rain in the northern zone and the Caribbean overnight.

The Weather Underground, A.M. Costa Rica's weather service, says there is a slight chance of thunder showers Saturday afternoon, The service estimates just 2 millimeters of rain in the Central Valley.

Picnic organizers have wisely concluded the event at 1 p.m. each year to avoid possible afternoon showers.

Also this weekend is the calypso festival in Cahuita on the southern Caribbean. There may be some rain, but nothing to the extent that ravaged the coast from June 20. The event starts today and runs through Sunday.

Those headed into San José from the picnic at the Cervercería Costa Rica grounds near Juan Santamaría airport have a chance to visit an animal adoption fair at the Wal-Mart in Escazú. Cats and kittens, dogs and puppies will be available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Stop-and-frisk policy nets 2,949 this year

By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

The Fuerza Pública stop-and-frisk policy has resulted in 2,949 arrests in San José over the last five months, the agency said Thursday.

Police routinely stop individuals and make them turn out their pockets. Those who are encountered by police usually are younger males.

That's why the biggest infraction found in the streets are persons who are behind on their child support payments, said the Fuerza Pública. Failing to pay what is known as pensión alimentaria can bring police with an arrest warrant. Or individuals may be flagged when police check their identity on the street.

Being behind on child support results in a ride in the perrera, the paddy wagon, just as if the person was accused of a higher crime. They usually go free after a relative posts the appropriate amount of money.

The second most common reason for being detained on the street are due to arrest warrants involving crimes, said police.

Fuerza Pública officers stop individuals without any sort of probable cause and then search them. Frequently they find small amounts of drugs. The same policy is enforced on the highway when police pull over motorists randomly and then search the vehicle.



Solar plane due to reach Hawaii today

By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services

A solar-powered Swiss airplane is scheduled to touch down in Hawaii today after a record-breaking flight across the Pacific Ocean, the riskiest leg of its 35,000-kilometer trip around the world without a drop of fuel.

Solar Impulse 2 pilot Andre Borschberg has now beaten the previous longest solo piloting record that was held by American adventurer Steve Fossett.

Borchberg has taken 20-minute naps during the journey in the unpressurized cockpit while the aircraft was on autopilot.

Si2 flew out of Nagoya, Japan, early Monday after an unscheduled month-long stop.  The aircraft was diverted to Nagoya because of bad weather at the beginning of June on its trip from Nanjing in eastern China to Hawaii.  Its final destination is Abu Dhabi.

Si2 is the brainchild of two Swiss scientists, Borschberg and Bertrand Piccard.  It took them 12 years to build the aircraft.

The carbon fiber single-seat Si2 has a 72-meter wingspan, which is longer than the wingspan of a Boeing 747, and weighs about as much as a car. The 17,000 solar cells built into the wings harness the sun's energy.

Piccard and Borschberg say they are not out to revolutionize the aviation industry, but are instead aiming to demonstrate that actual alternative energy sources and new technologies can achieve what some consider impossible.

The aircraft's route included stops in Oman, India, Myanmar and China.  After its Pacific voyage, the plane will make up to three stops in the U.S., touching down in Phoenix, Arizona and New York City, and possibly another location depending on weather conditions.

The final legs after crossing the Atlantic include a stopover in southern Europe or North Africa before arriving back in Abu Dhabi, where the journey started, in late July or early August.


Another complaint against ex-legislator

By the A.M. Costa Rica staff

Prosecutors confirmed Thursday that another woman has filed a complaint against Justo Orozco Álvarez, the former legislator who was detained on a sexual abuse charge Tuesday. Orozco is head of the Renovación Costarricense political party.

Prosecutors said that the second complaint originated on the same day as the first.
