MSK Prasad defends MS Dhoni’s World Cup show: He was a big strength

first_imgIndia’s senior selection committee chairman MSK Prasad has reiterated that MS Dhoni is still the best wicketkeeper and finisher in the shorter formats of the game in the country.MSK Prasad, responding to a question on wether the selectors compromised the balance of the Indian middle-order in order to fit in MS Dhoni, said the veteran wicketkeeper’s experience was key to Virat Kohli-led team at World Cup 2019 in England.Dhoni collected 273 runs from 9 matches at 45.50 but his approach in the middle-order was questioned. Dhoni took time to settle into his innings on most occassions. In the semi-final defeat to New Zealand MS Dhoni combined with Ravindra Jadeja to steer India out of trouble as the duo took the team from 92 for 6 to 208 for 7 in chase of 240. Dhoni hit a 72-ball 50 but was run out after he started to attack the New Zealand pacers at the death.”I can clearly say this that till today MS [Dhoni] is the best gloveman and finisher in India in the shorter formats. The others are still work in progress. MS was a big strength to this team in the World Cup both as a batsman and keeper, apart from sharing his vast experience with the team and captain while taking on-field decisions,” MSK Prasad told PTI.MS Dhoni was not considered for selection for India’s upcoming tour of West Indies, starting August 3 in the United States. Dhoni had approached the BCCI for a 2-month sabbatical during which he would serve the Paramilitary regiment of the Indian Army.advertisementReiterating that more chances will be given to Rishabh Pant across all formats of the game in the near future, MSK Prasad remained tight-lipped on wether MS Dhoni will be considered for selection once he makes himself available for the home series against South Africa and Bangladesh from September.Prasad had confirmed that MS Dhoni will not be available for selection for West Indies tour while maintaining that a legendary player like him should be allowed to go out on his own terms.”I have very clearly told post the selection of the Indian team against West Indies, that we have a plan post World Cup to give as many opportunities as possible to Rishabh and groom him so that he can grow in confidence and perform as per the requirements of the team,” MSK Prasad said.Pant has been picked as the first-choice wicketkeeper in all 3 formats for India’s tour of West Indies. Wriddhiman Saha, who is set to make his comeback after injury setbacks, has been selected as the back-up wicketkeeper in Tests.Also Read | Virat Kohli’s comments on Ravi Shastri will not influence CAC: Anshuman GaekwadAlso Read | Fighter Prithvi will come out of doping setback stronger: Childhood coachAlso See:last_img read more

City stars dominate Manchester XI

first_imgPremier League No Lukaku or Martial: Man City’s attacking stars dominate Manchester derby combined XI Patrick Gleeson Last updated 1 year ago 19:15 12/10/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(22) Sergio Aguero Raheem Sterling Leroy Sane Man City Getty/Goal Premier League Manchester United v Manchester City David de Gea Kevin De Bruyne Sergio Agüero Raheem Sterling Leroy Sané Manchester United Manchester City The two Manchester giants will face off at Old Trafford this weekend, but who makes it into the Goal combined XI? Manchester United host Manchester City on Sunday in a derby game which will give us an indicator of where the Premier League title will end up in May.Pep Guardiola’s side have opened an eight-point gap at the top of the table after just 15 games and remain unbeaten going into this weekend’s meeting at Old Trafford. Should City claim a victory against Jose Mourinho’s men it would blow a major hole in their neighbours’ chances of claiming the title, despite it still being relatively early in the campaign. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player City have now won 13 successive league matches – a joint-record within a single top-flight season – while United are unbeaten in their last 40 home games in all competitions, a record of their own.The game is the biggest of the season so far, but which players available for selection from each side would make a combined XI judged on their form so far this season?  Goal  takes a shot at picking the team…David de Gea Manchester UnitedDAVID DE GEA (United) –  As impressive as City goalkeeper Ederson has been this term, David De Gea’s show-stopping performance during the Red Devils’ 3-1 victory at Arsenal last time out made it impossible to overlook the Spain international.  De Gea made an incredible 14 saves at the Emirates and is arguably the form ‘keeper in Europe at present.ANTONIO VALENCIA (United) – The full-back areas were the most difficult to fill, with the right-back spot a straight battle between Valencia and Kyle Walker. The United defender was outstanding at Arsenal last weekend and followed it up with another solid performance in the Champions League in United’s 2-1 win at home to CSKA Moscow.NICOLAS OTAMENDI (City) – While it is United players who dominate the back five of our combined XI, Otamendi’s inclusion is fully deserved. The City centre-back’s partnership with John Stones, who misses the game with a hamstring injury, has been the basis of a solid defence for Guardiola this term.MARCOS ROJO (United) – Mourinho has ruled Eric Bailly out of the game, while Phil Jones is a major doubt. With Stones also unavailable, Marcos Rojo claims the second centre-back slot in our four-man backline having been rested in the week.ASHLEY YOUNG (United) – The inclusion of Young at left-back is a result of both Benjamin Mendy’s absence and Luke Shaw’s exile, though the latter returned to the United starting XI against CSKA. Young’s stint in the left wing-back role has been a successful one, similarly to that of Fabian Delph’s in the same position at City.KEVIN DE BRUYNE (City) – Undoubtedly one of the performers of the season across Europe so far this season, De Bruyne’s selection comes as no surprise. The Belgian playmaker has scored four goals and assisted eight while averaging over three key passes per league outing.Kevin De Bruyne Premier League Team of the WeekNEMANJA MATIC (United) – While the defensive positions are stacked with the red of United, the front two thirds of the team is top-heavy with City stars. Every attack requires a pivot, though, and with Paul Pogba missing out on Sunday’s game through suspension, it is up to Matic to govern the central spot in midfield.DAVID SILVA (City) – Guardiola is unsure regarding the availability of Silva ahead of the tie but if he is passed fit then he will almost certainly be selected in City’s XI. The 31-year-old’s importance to the club has again been highlighted this season and his two goals and eight assists in 14 starts is a very sturdy return.RAHEEM STERLING (City) – Ten starts for the England international so far this season, nine goals. Sterling has blossomed under the tutelage of Guardiola and has proved himself as a consistent match-winner across the campaign. The 22-year-old gets into the team ahead of the likes of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.SERGIO AGUERO (City) – To choose a single forward from Romelu Lukaku, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero is difficult, though it is the latter who gets the nod in our combined XI following his nine goals this term. Jesus was a close second having been directly involved in 21 goals in his 24 Premier League appearances so far in his career (15 goals, six assists). LEROY SANE (City) – A slow start to life in Manchester has been followed by an outstanding season this time around, with Sane’s displays on the left of the attack a crucial part of City’s success. The 21-year-old has so far claimed six goals and six assists from 14 appearances in the top flight this season.Manchester combined XIAnd here’s how they line up! Disagree with our selection?

Report: Barcelona 4 Deportivo 0

first_imgBarcelona 4 Deportivo La Coruna 0: Suarez, Paulinho at the double in Clasico warm-up Iain Strachan Last updated 1 year ago 05:37 12/18/17 Lionel Messi - cropped Getty Images Luis Suarez and Paulinho helped LaLiga leaders Barcelona to brush aside Deportivo La Coruna ahead of the meeting with Real Madrid. Barcelona eased to a 4-0 win over Deportivo La Coruna on Sunday and restored their six-point lead over Atletico Madrid at the top of LaLiga, but lost Paco Alcacer to injury ahead of El Clasico. Doubles for Luis Suarez and Paulinho secured the victory for Ernesto Valverde’s side at Camp Nou, where Deportivo, who are battling to avoid relegation, offered little to trouble the Catalan giants.While the hosts won with ease, the absence of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system from Spain’s top flight, where it will be introduced next season, again appeared to cost Barca what would have been a stunning rabona goal from Suarez in first-half injury time.    Article continues below Editors’ Picks Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player The Blaugrana also lost Alcacer to a muscle injury in the first half, leaving the forward out for three weeks and rendering him unavailable for the all-important showdown with struggling title holders Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabeu next Saturday.Andres Iniesta was withdrawn as a precaution with the match won early in the second half, while key men Suarez and Lionel Messi, who was impressive throughout and orchestrated his team’s attack but missed a second-half penalty, appeared to emerge unscathed. The match was played at a low-key tempo for much of the first half, but Barcelona were firmly in charge throughout and saw a Suarez goal ruled out for offside as early as the sixth minute.Messi twice drew saves from Ruben Martinez, as did Aleix Vidal, who came on as a substitute to replace Alcacer with 21 minutes gone.INJURY NEWS | @paco93alcacer will be out for 3 weeks with muscle injury in his left leg— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) December 17, 2017The deadlock was broken in the 29th minute, when Ivan Rakitic’s corner was only cleared as far as Iniesta, who lifted the ball back into the area and picked out Messi perfectly. The Argentine in turn squared for Suarez to stroke home from close range.The former Liverpool star turned provider for Messi to hit the crossbar in the 37th minute and it was 2-0 four minutes later, the woodwork this time unable to save Deportivo. A Messi shot struck the inside of the upright and bounced clear, but Paulinho was on hand to poke home the rebound.5 – Midfielders with the most goals+assists in La Liga this season:8 – Gonçalo Guedes 3+87 – PAULINHO 5+27 – Isco Alarcón 4+37 – Marco Asensio 4+37 – Andres Guardado 1+6Piranha.— OptaJose (@OptaJose) December 17, 2017Suarez thought he had netted a third in injury time, the Uruguayan conjuring up a brilliant rabona finish at a tight angle, only for Ruben to claw the ball away. The presence of VAR might have seen a goal awarded in Barca’s favour, but the hosts had to be content with a 2-0 lead going into the half-time break. They did not have to wait long for that third goal to arrive, though, Sergi Roberto swinging a pass into the back post for Suarez to smash past Ruben and complete a slick counter-attack just a minute into the second half.  Iniesta, increasingly fragile in the twilight of his career, was replaced by Andre Gomes in the 56th minute.Messi only had himself to blame for spurning a chance to score from 12 yards out in the 70th minute, the Argentine hitting the frame of the goal yet again after Suarez was fouled by Federico Valverde.Instead it was Paulinho in the right place at the right time with 15 minutes to go, the Brazilian bundling the ball home after Jordi Alba’s shot struck the post and left Ruben stranded. Key Opta stats:- Luis Suarez has scored eight goals against Deportivo in LaLiga, his favourite opponent in terms of goals scored, alongside Sporting Gijon.- Barcelona have not lost any of their 23 La Liga games (W20 D3) – only Manchester City have a longer current unbeaten run in Europe’s top five leagues (W23 D3). – Lionel Messi has provided more assists than any other LaLiga player in 2017 in all competitions (15).- The Argentinian has provided more assists for Luis Suarez in La Liga than any other teammate (19). – Barcelona have hit the woodwork more times than any other side in Europe’s top five leagues this season (19).  read morelast_img read more

Sustainable Communities Initiative Wins Silver Award

first_imgNATURAL RESOURCES–Sustainable Communities Initiative Wins SilverAward Government organizations in Nova Scotia were recognized recentlyfor developing a unique one-stop business shopping process forcommunities. Nova Scotia’s Sustainable Communities Initiative (SCI) won asilver medal for excellence in Innovative Management at aprestigious national competition hosted by the Institute ofPublic Administration of Canada. SCI is a partnership of more than 40 federal, provincial,municipal and First Nations’ organizations. The group workscollaboratively to address complex issues in the watersheds ofthe Bras d’Or Lakes and the Fundy/Annapolis Basin by integratingsocial, cultural, economic and environmental policies andprograms. Field teams in each area meet monthly to hear moreabout each other’s work and to hear from groups that arewrestling with issues that affect the long-term sustainability oftheir communities. “The SCI approach really works,” said Garth Bangay, regionaldirector general of Environment Canada, and the federal championof the initiative. “Instead of community leaders having to knockon many different doors to get answers to their questions or helpwith their issues, they can now easily access the knowledge andexpertise of representatives across a range of government levels,departments and agencies.” “This initiative is doing excellent work in Nova Scotia, and Iwant to thank the government and community members for their hardwork and achievements,” said Peter Underwood, deputy minister ofNatural Resources, and the provincial champion. “Nova Scotia’srural communities are building a stronger future because of thisnew, one-stop approach to government support.” Since 1990, the IPAC Award for Innovative Management hasrecognized exceptional management in the public service.

Legislation Introduced to Remove Provincial Trade Barriers

first_imgLegislation introduced today, Sept. 12, will help enhance interprovincial trade and meet requirements under the Canadian Free Trade Agreement. The Canadian Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act replaces the former Agreement on Internal Trade Implementation Act. It includes provisions that make the agreement enforceable in Nova Scotia, including in areas such as labour mobility. “At its core, the Canadian Free Trade Agreement is designed to reduce trade barriers and enhance the flow of goods and services, investment and labour within Canada,” said Trade Minister Geoff MacLellan. “Interprovincial co-operation and trade is critically important in creating jobs and opportunities for Nova Scotians and Canadians.” The domestic market is important to Nova Scotia businesses. Over half of Nova Scotia’s trade is interprovincial, totalling over $8.4 billion in exports of goods and services in 2016. The Canadian Free Trade Agreement came into effect on July 1, 2017, replacing the Agreement on Internal Trade which had been in place since 1995. The agreement establishes an open, efficient and stable domestic market. It also contains obligations for binding dispute resolution for government-to-government and individual business-to-government disputes. The agreement requires each government to take steps to ensure dispute resolution orders are legally enforceable. The act contains labour mobility enforcement provisions that balance the interests of regulators in setting and enforcing professional standards with the need to ensure that government’s obligations under the Canadian Free Trade Agreement for labour mobility are met. Upon proclamation of the Canadian Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act, Nova Scotia will officially enforce the Canadian Free Trade Agreement. Provinces are required to have an enforcement mechanism in place by Dec. 31.last_img read more

Sandvik fully mobile IPCC rigs in place at S11D

first_imgAt the recent Vale Day event in London attended by International Mining, Vale announced the latest on its flagship 90 Mt/y S11D iron ore project. Up to October 2014, physical progress completion was 55% with start-up in H2 2016 still on course, and of the approved CAPEX of $8.09 billion, the trend is looking at a final total of $6.7 -7.1 billion with executed CAPEX so far at $3.30 billion. Vale states: “Our flagship project reached 37% of combined physical progress in Q3 2014. During the quarter, Vale concluded 83% of electromechanical assembly of modules, initiated the earthworks on the mine and received all mobile crushing rigs, part of the truckless system equipment, on site. In the railway and port, we initiated the pile driving for the bridges over Sossego and Parauapebas rivers, while in the offshore north berth we reached 31% of completion.”Galib Chaim, Executive Director Capital Projects told IM when asked about progress with primary mining and any anticipated issues with the use of the new fully mobile rig design from Sandvik: “We already use IPCC methods at operations in Brazilian iron ore and Australian coal and at S11D have already made good progress with the mine, having advanced more than we had planned. Earthworks will complete ahead of the due date, with the contractor having reached its target also ahead of the due date. Earth movement to date totals 15 million m3. The mine schedule does not see production until H2 2016 and the main truckless rigs and components are already on site, as is the bulk of the conveyor system. Much of the equpiment was made in China and there have been no issues with our key suppliers.” Some 69 modules for project equipment were preassembled and transported by road to site. He also directly referred to “two smaller capacity IPCC units” that it already uses in Brazil, a reference the two ThyssenKrupp fully mobile IPCC rigs that Vale has already been using for some time at the Carajas N4E operation.Also at Carajas, Vale it has delivered the licencing of orebody N4WS, with the N5S licence expected soon. N4WS is a key part of 2015 and 2016 production plans having higher quality ore and a lower strip ratio. the N4WS area is also close to the Plant 2 primary crusher, which reduces average transportation costs.last_img read more

Vache folle découverte du premier marqueur de la maladie

first_imgVache folle : découverte du premier marqueur de la maladieL’étude publiée dans la revue américaine PLoS ONE mercredi, vient de révéler la découverte du premier biomarqueur spécifique à la maladie de Creutzfeldt-Jakob, un espoir pour l’avenir des tests diagnostiques sur des patients encore en vie.La maladie de Creutzfeldt-Jakob pourrait bientôt faire l’objet d’un test diagnostique d’une grande fiabilité. Cet espoir a été rendu possible grâce à l’étude menée par des scientifiques américains. Les résultats de leur recherche montrent que les patients atteints par la maladie, présentent une baisse notable de protéines de Transferrine (Tf), dans le liquide cérébro-spinal. La diminution du niveau de ces protéines responsables du transport de fer dans l’organisme, se réalise bien avant le dernier stade de la maladie. À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Le Docteur Neena Singh, de l’Université Case Western (Ohio, nord) fait partie de l’équipe des chercheurs. Elle explique à l’AFP : “La baisse des protéines Tf est suffisamment notable pour distinguer la démence provoquée spécifiquement par la maladie de Creutzfeldt-Jacob avec 80% d’exactitude”. La maladie de Creutzfeldt-Jakob se caractérise par une dégénérescence du système nerveux suite à l’accumulation de prions, des protéines modifiées responsables de la maladie. L’évolution progressive de l’état du patient va jusqu’à la démence puis sa mort. A l’heure actuelle, les médecins ne peuvent diagnostiquer la maladie avec certitude qu’en prélevant et analysant des tissus du cerveau après décès.Le 10 mars 2011 à 14:09 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Calista campaigning to reduce quorum requirements before descendants enroll

first_imgCalista Corporation is campaigning to reduce quorum requirements at its annual shareholder meetings to prevent invalidating future meeting votes and wasting corporation money when quorum isn’t met. Download AudioCurrent quorum stands at an over 50-percent majority. Calista wants to reduce that to a one-third or about 33-percent requirement, and the corporation wants it to happen before decedents enroll as shareholders next year. The corporation has one shot to make the change before the pending influx— the annual shareholders’ meeting in July. To rally support, a Calista committee is visiting communities across the Yukon Kuskokwim Delta to explain their position before the gathering.Thom Leonard, Calista Communications Manager, says quorum for annual shareholder meetings average 50.07-percent, barely over the needed 50-percent majority. Leonard says the corporation fears that average could plummet with decedents enrolling next year, a change passed at the 2015 meeting and a move expected to triple shareholder numbers from about 13,000 to around 40,000.The corporation expects this surge of younger voters will reduce the likelihood of reaching quorum in the future based on voting trends among young Alaskan voters. According to the Division of Elections, in 2014 less than 41-percent of 18 to 34-year-old registered voters cast ballots in the Alaska general election.Lower voter turnout would mean wasted time and money for Calista and its shareholders. When quorum isn’t met, votes become invalid, and Calista spends about $100,000 rescheduling its annual gathering. The corporation hopes reducing its quorum requirement will buffer these potential loses.last_img read more

Communities flee eruption at Guatemalas Volcano of Fire

first_img<< Previous PostNext Post >> Tuesday, November 20, 2018 By: The Associated Press Communities flee eruption at Guatemala’s Volcano of Fire GUATEMALA CITY — About 4,000 residents fled Guatemala’s volcano of Fire Monday as red-hot rock and ash spewed into the sky and cascaded down the slopes toward an area devastated by a deadly eruption earlier this year.Guatemala’s volcanology unit said that explosions from the 12,300-foot (3,763-meter) high mountain shook homes with “constant sounds similar to a train locomotive.”Incandescent material burst as high as 1,000 metres (3,200 feet) above the crater and flows of hot rock and ash extended nearly 2 miles (3 kilometres) down one flank of the volcano. Hot blasts of pyroclastic material pushed down canyons on the slopes, while a column of ash rose nearly 23,000 feet (7,000 metres) above sea level and drifted toward Guatemala City to the east.Hundreds of families heeded the call of disaster co-ordination authorities to evacuate 10 communities, piling into yellow school buses for trips to shelters. The national disaster commission said 3,925 people had been evacuated by early Monday. As the hours passed, however, the intensity of the volcano’s activity decreased and many decided to return to their homes or seek shelter with friends or family.More news:  A new low for no-frills flying: easyJet assigns backless seat to passengerThe Volcano of Fire is one of the most active in Central America and an eruption in June killed 194 people. Another 234 are officially missing, although organizations supporting the communities have insisted there are thousands of missing persons.It spewed more ash and hot rock in October, prompting warnings for the nearby communities.The biggest danger from the volcano are lahars, a mixture of ash, rock, mud and debris, that can bury entire towns. On Monday, there had been no reports of such flows reaching populated areas, though authorities were taking no chances; they were harshly criticized for not calling for evacuations earlier in June.Four shelters have been set up for evacuees. Dora Caal, 26, and five members of her family took refuge under a nylon tent at a sports stadium in the nearby town of Escuintla.“Last night we heard the volcano roar, you could see fire, we couldn’t sleep,” said Caal, whose town of El Rodeo was largely evacuated.More news:  Virgin Voyages de-activates Quebec accounts at FirstMates agent portal“At dawn we said we’d better get out, we were afraid,” Caal said as the sun beat down fiercely at the improvised shelter. People like Caal are still reeling from the effects of the June eruption.“Back then I lost my job at a farm that was on the slopes of the volcano. They closed it and we can’t work there anymore,” she said.Enma Hernandez, 42, left her home in El Rodeo to evacuate, but her 20-year-old son stayed behind to protect the family home from looters. In fact, many men stayed behind in the town; there were mainly women and children at the shelter. Tags: Guatemala, Volcano Sharelast_img read more

11 circumstances with a negative impact on property values in Costa Rica

first_imgPower linesDo power lines cause cancer? You will find articles that say there are hundreds of studies that show that EMF pollution will affect your health. Others say they won’t, but that the lines should be buried because they’re ugly.However, both health and visual concerns are perfectly good reasons for property buyers to say no to an otherwise well-priced and beautiful property.Waste and recycling warehouseThere are many small warehouses that recycle materials in Costa Rica. Some are located in industrial parks but I have seen quite a few in residential areas. In Costa Rica, a large variety of articles are recycled, such as paper, plastic, cardboard, electronics, metals, batteries, waste oil, toner, tires, adhesive, polymer and asbestos residues, solvents and chemical products, copper, aluminum, cans and many others.Some of these products are toxic waste and others are a fire hazard. Having a waste and or recycling warehouse in the neighborhood will reduce your property value.Highway frontageThe Costa Rican government does not build new highways very often, but it does happen. A whopping 32 years passed between the design and inauguration of only 77 kilometers of the famous Highway 27. The highway project between San Carlos and the Central Valley was started 48 years ago and is still not finished.Nonetheless, you don’t want to have thousands of cars coming by your bedroom window every day. Do your homework about projects and plans in your area.AirportUnless you’re deaf, living near an airport can be a noisy situation. Fortunately, we don’t have that many airports in Costa Rica – and even when the government plans a new one, it will take a lifetime to find the financing to build it.If you don’t know the country well, it is pretty easy to find out where the airports are located. Google has an incredible feature that will show you every airport on national territory when you do a search for airports in Costa Rica.HoardersHaving hoarders next door is nothing that you can really plan for. The good thing is that you will notice a hoarder on your first visit. A car wreck sitting up front, tires in the front yard and a backyard full of junk will show you all you need to know.You might want to peek over the neighbor’s fence before buying; it will save a headache and a lot of money.CrimeUnless you’re a criminal yourself or want to buy pot close to home, you probably want to stay away from high-crime areas. It is pretty easy to find out if there are many home invasions or other crimes where you want to purchase a property. Be aware that only violent crime will affect property values in Costa Rica.VolcanoesVolcanic eruptions will definitely impact property value. Unfortunately, we don’t know when a volcano will erupt. And when it will, is it going to be dust or rocks flying through the air? How much will the homeowner suffer from this eruption?I once had a client who didn’t want to live close to a volcano. I recommended he should buy a property in Florida but to stay away from Wakulla.LandslidesWhen visiting a property you want to buy, look up.  If there is a mountain above the property, you want to check on landslides. A landslide downhill from your property will also affect you. See if the property might need any retainer walls. They can either make a serious dent in your finances or hurt your property value if you don’t build them.FloodingThere are certain areas in Costa Rica that will flood during the rainy season, every year. Unless you enjoy a wading pool in your living room, do your homework.How much?There is no true formula to calculate how much the property value will be reduced due to the above factors. Some real estate agents recommend analyzing properties with similar physical attributes that are not influenced by these circumstances.I have seen statistics from large U.S. cities that carry the most incredible data, such as a figure that shows housing prices within 0.1 miles of a registered sex offender fall by 4% on average. In Costa Rica, we don’t have statistics like that, so we cannot use them to calculate the effect certain circumstances have on property values.In my opinion, it is very difficult to appraise a property correctly, as I have stated in another article. It’s impossible to say if there is a 10% or a 25% impact on the value due to some circumstance. So how should you handle this?You could come up with all kinds of formulas that calculate variables, but you won’t know what the value is until you have a buyer’s agreement to purchase. Start asking the price that your real estate agent recommends. Otherwise, study the market. If the property doesn’t sell, keep lowering your price until you have a serious offer.Ivo Henfling, a Dutch expat who has lived in Costa Rica since 1980, founded the American-European Real Estate Group in 1999 which was the first functioning MLS with affiliate agents from coast to coast.

There is an amazing number of undesirable conditions that can have a negative impact on your property value in Costa Rica. The time to look at these is before you purchase, Then you still have time to change your decision.By buying a property in Costa Rica, you will have the advantage that certain negative circumstances don’t exist here – nuclear plants, heavy industry, sinkholes or fracking, just to name a few.But Costa Rica has its own set of issues. Some of them you get used to after a while. I like William Toles Father’s quote: “You can get used to hanging if you hang long enough.”You should do all the necessary homework before you close on your property purchase. Knowing the facts will make it easier to walk away from the purchase, rather than trying to revert any of the following 11 circumstances:Garbage dump or landfillIn Costa Rica,  there are open dumps as well as landfills; open dumpsites are legal here. Both have a huge impact on property value. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to find out when and where future open garbage dumps and landfills will be created.They both contaminate the soil, groundwater and drinking water, and generate unhealthy toxic gases. If your property is downwind from an open dumpsite, the smells can be horrible at times. And if your property is on the route of the garbage trucks as they come and go, the foul odors will also influence your property value.Train tracksIn Costa Rica, the railroad’s right of way is five meters on either side of the railroad track. A property next to the railroad track has a registered easement on the property title.President Jose María Figueres closed the Costa Rican Railway Institute (INCOFER) in June 1995, prompting many homeowners to incorporate the five-meter right of way on their side of the track into their property by moving their fence or wall. There are several condominiums that have houses built on the five-meter line.In 2005, passenger trains were reactivated and they service certain areas of the Central Valley.  Therefore, if there is an unused railroad track behind the property you want to buy, there is a risk in doing so. The property value will take a massive blow if and when the train starts running again.last_img read more
