first_imgBy Dialogo November 01, 2011 Chilean Defense Minister Andrés Allamand, together with the under secretary for defense, Oscar Izurieta, and the head of the Joint General Staff, Lieutenant General Hernán Mardones, met with Allamand’s Brazilian counterpart, Celso Amorim, to review both countries’ bilateral agenda. One of the chief topics discussed at the bilateral meeting, held in Brasilia, the Brazilian capital, was the Chilean proposal to create a gradual and proportional schedule for the withdrawal of forces in Haiti. “Chile shares with Brazil a commitment to Haiti and the will to continue collaborating on the stabilization of that country. That entails moving to a phase of greater collaboration on tasks linked to economic development and strengthening institutions. Just as it is unreasonable to press for a hasty and ill-advised withdrawal from Haiti, it is also wrong to extend our presence in that country forever. The idea is to agree on a gradual and proportional departure itinerary, with the aim that this will be the object of talks both with the Haitian authorities and with those of the United Nations,” Defense Minister Andrés Allamand said. During his official visit to Brazil, Minister Allamand will learn at first hand and on site how that country (Brazil) has set up its border surveillance and protection program, both in its technical aspects (radar systems, sensors, and high-tech equipment) and in its operational aspects, where one of the topics of special interest is the articulation of collaborative efforts between the Armed Forces and the police. “The increase of drug trafficking in the region and the southward displacement of areas planted with coca require a joint and multilateral approach to the problem. Brazil has had a plan for controlling its borders for years. Argentina recently implemented the Northern Shield plan, and we’re moving forward on the North Border Plan. Nevertheless, the effectiveness of these plans depends on the capacity for cooperation, trustworthy exchange of information, and adoption of joint measures,” Minister Allamand maintained. In this context, Chile seeks to collaborate actively in this sphere, with the aim of implementing measures that can serve to combat this plague jointly with other countries in the region.last_img read more

first_imgThe World Esports Association (“WESA“) has announced that OpTic Gaming has joined as a member of the association and FaZe Clan is a full member once more. FaZe Clan were one of the founding members of WESA but left after a few weeks. There was much debate as to why and it was reported that a key reason was a demand for exclusivity with ESL. You can read the IGN story here. “We are honored that OpTic Gaming, one of the most popular esports teams in the world with a massive social following and fan base, has elected to join WESA.  We are also pleased that FaZe Clan will remain as a Member of our organisation,” commented Ken Hershman, Executive Chairman and Commissioner, WESA. He continued: “The recent team additions to WESA demonstrate our continued commitment to bringing the world’s best esports organizations together in order to positively impact professional esports. Having the expertise and professionalism of OpTic Gaming and FaZe Clan as part of WESA will greatly aid us in fulfilling that mission.”“We share the same vision as WESA and its membership to professionalise the esports industry,” said Hector Rodriguez, Owner, OpTic Gaming. “We look forward to working with the organisation and our fellow Members on advancing the progress that they have already made.”OpTic Gaming joins ten other esports teams (EnVyUS, FaZe Clan, Fnatic, G2 Esports, mousesports, Natus Vincere, Ninjas in Pyjamas, Renegades, SK Gaming and Virtus.pro), and ESL as members of WESA.WESA’s aim is to further professionalise esports by introducing elements of player representation, standardised regulations and revenue shares for teams. It seeks to “create predictable schedules for fans, players, organisers and broadcasters, and bring all stakeholders to the discussion table”.“We’re impressed with WESA’s growth and impact on the industry over the last year. Expanding membership with more North American teams, introducing key regulations and the commitment of member organisations to abide by the changes, and a new Commissioner with a background in the traditional media space really solidified our interest in remaining a part of WESA, “ said Erik Anderson, Manager, FaZe Clan. “FaZe Clan is committed to being an active member of WESA moving forward and growing the esports industry.”Esports Insider says: After SK Gaming and Renegades joined recently, WESA has now received another boost. A lot of the idea behind WESA rings true in Riot’s recent North American LCS franchising system – but it’s not really applicable to CS:GO. Congratulations to OpTic, FaZe and WESA on the news.last_img read more
