Este martes los neoyorquinos enviaron más de 250,000 botellas de agua, 8,600 lámparas solares y 85,000 pañales a Puerto Rico hacia las zonas embestidas hace casi tres semanas por el huracán María en Puerto Rico. Esta ayuda, que fue recogida en varios puntos de la ciudad, fue trasladada en vuelos chárter y comerciales. En total, desde Nueva York salieron hacia la isla, que sigue casi en su totalidad sin servicio de electricidad, 283,000 botellas de agua, 85,000 pañales, 42,000 paños para bebés, 40,000 recipientes con comida para infantes, 15,000 de productos enlatados, 15,000 bolsas de jugo, 8,600 lámparas solares y 6,300 libras de comida seca. Este martes, se generaron lluvias por una onda tropical que volvieron a provocar inundaciones en la isla haciendo que las carreteras sean inundadas que dificultaron la entrega de la ayuda a los damnificados por el ciclón. FEMA, Agencia Federal para el Manejo de Emergencias indicó que, debido a las lluvias puede que las aeronaves que llevan la ayuda no puedan aterrizar, por lo que la carga podría lanzarse desde el airePor otro lado, las victimas se elevaron a 43 a causa del azote del huracán.
NEW YORK, Nov. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- E-reading devices and ebooks continue to be popular with children, based on the results of a recent survey from PlayCollective and Digital Book World. In fact, e-readers and ebooks will be among the hot technology gifts for kids during the 2014 holiday season. Digital Book World is an online educational and news platform, and PlayCollective is a global strategy, research and product group. See digitalbookworld.com and playcollective.com. According to the survey, more than 45 percent of all parents with children between the ages of 2 and 13 plan to purchase a new device for their child to read ebooks this holiday season. Of those parents who already own a device, 50 percent are planning to purchase a new one this season, up 4 percent from last year, and more than half (58 percent) of these parents intend for the device to belong primarily to their child. Findings from the Survey (all below are among families that already own a device and have children who e-read): Although tablets have reigned for the past two years, the Kindle e-reader is the device parents most intend to purchase this year (26 percent), perhaps because the growing variety of tablets has splintered the competition. The Kindle Fire was the top choice for 2013, but the percentage of parents choosing the Fire has decreased from 29 percent to 12 percent, likely due to the introduction of the Kindle Fire HD (12 percent) and the Kindle Fire HD Kids Edition (17 percent). Kindle products are followed by non-iPad tablet devices (14 percent), the iPad 4 (12 percent) and second-generation iPad Mini (12 percent), and a laptop or computer (12 percent). Purchase intent is lowest for older-version iPads and non-Kindle designated e-readers. Three-quarters (75 percent) plan to purchase new ebooks…
SANTA YSABEL, Calif., Nov. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Cruz Bustamante, spokesman for Santa Ysabel Interactive, an enterprise of the Santa Ysabel Tribal Development Corporation issued the following statement responding to the State of California's lawsuit that attempts to severely undermine the inherent sovereign rights of the Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel and its Class II gaming rights under federal law pursuant to the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA). "The complaint filed last week by the State of California against the Iipay Nation of Santa Ysabel lacks both substance and merit and attacks tribal sovereignty. We look forward to having the opportunity to demonstrate the legality, regulatory veracity and consumer safety of the Tribe's interactive Class II bingo enterprise. "With this lawsuit, the State of California is attacking the sovereignty of all tribes. The suit is intent on obstructing the rights and economic vitality afforded to federally-recognized Indian tribes under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA). The State's misguided attack completely ignores existing federal regulations and guidelines encompassed in the Cabazon Decision of the United States Supreme Court, which remains the law of the land. It is a thinly veiled attempt to weaken tribal governments as the State prepares to negotiate compacts with many of the California Tribes. This action by the State should be of great concern to all Tribes in California and elsewhere because it reflects a tactic that if successful would set a dangerous legal precedent that could be used in other jurisdictions to undermine and attack tribal sovereignty." "Santa Ysabel Interactive and the Santa Ysabel Gaming Commission (SYGC) have constructed a business model and regulatory structure that is completely transparent and compliant with all applicable SYGC and NIGC regulations. The transparency is such that the SYGC regulations are and have been available to the public for months…
