The drugs represent 14 separate suspected drug smuggling vessel interdictions and disruptions off the coasts of Mexico, Central and South America by three USCG cutters between May and July 2019. CORONADO, Calif. ― Vice President Mike Pence, Office of National Drug Control Policy Director James W. Carroll, Drug Enforcement Administration Acting Administrator Uttam Dhillon and Vice Admiral Linda Fagan, commander of Coast Guard Pacific Area, attended a United States Coast Guard drug offload July 11 at Naval Base Coronado. The DEA, USCG, Navy, FBI, CBP and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, along with allied and international partner agencies, play a role in counter-drug operations. The fight against drug cartels in the Eastern Pacific requires unity of effort in all phases from detection, monitoring and interdictions, to criminal prosecutions by U.S. Attorney’s Offices in districts across the nation. “These seizures are the result of the continued, outstanding collaboration between the Drug Enforcement Administration, the United States Coast Guard, our federal law enforcement partners and our foreign law enforcement and naval partners, to aggressively attack transnational drug trafficking organizations and their worldwide maritime transportation networks,” Acting Administrator Uttam Dhillon said. “The drugs that were off loaded demonstrate not just the strength of our partnerships with the Coast Guard and federal and foreign law enforcement agencies, but also demonstrate the great success we achieve, and will continue to achieve, working together to attack these deadly transnational criminals.” Numerous U.S. agencies from the Departments of Justice, Defense and Homeland Security cooperate in the effort to combat transnational organized crime. DEA News: Agents with the DEA, FBI, Customs and Border Protection and the crew of the USCG Cutter Munro offloaded more than 39,000 pounds of cocaine and 933 pounds of marijuana, worth a combined estimated $569 million, which was seized in international waters in the Eastern Pacific Ocean. During at-sea interdictions, a suspect vessel is initially detected and monitored by allied, military or law enforcement personnel coordinated by Joint Interagency Task Force-South based in Key West, Fla. The law enforcement phase of counter-smuggling operations in the Eastern Pacific is conducted under the authority of the 11th Coast Guard District, headquartered in Alameda, Calif. The interdictions, including the actual boarding, are led and conducted by members of the U.S. Coast Guard.

50 Cent and Omari Hardwick; ABC/Fred Lee(NEW YORK) — The sixth and final season of Power debuts Sunday on Starz, but if you ask series co-creator and star Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, the show was never supposed to end so soon.“I did intend for it to continue,” the rapper-turned-executive producer tells ABC Radio. “I didn’t think it had to end. I said season seven and season one. I was using the success of The Sopranos, the success of The Wire.”And, Courtney was adamant about season six and a half, season seven, because you want to put a button on it before she exhausts the story,” 50 adds, referring to Power creator and showrunner Courtney Kemp.Although he agrees with Kemp that the “show should go [out] on a high note,” 50 notes that fans won’t have long to wait long before Power officially returns with its sequel, Power Book II: Ghost, in January, which he says will pick up right where Power leaves off.“Be aware that when you watch the finale, that Power is going to come back on,” he says. “36 to 48 hours after what you’re seeing. So, everyone… that’s still there is back in place. And, of course we’ll introduce new characters and things, but the series continues to go — it continues to grow.”And for fans eager to know what to expect from Power Book II: Ghost, 50 says it’ll deal with “The aftermath of the choices that people make,” he says, referring to the characters that will remain after Power‘s finale. “That could have been another title for it: life is choices.”Power, also starring Omari Hardwick, Lela Loren, Naturi Naughton, Joseph Sikora, Rotimi and La La Anthony, returns Sunday, August 25 at 8 p.m. ET.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

MARTAVIS BRYANT makes a valiant one-handed catch for a touchdown in the second quarter. But the Steelers lost in the end, 27-24, to the Patriots, Dec. 17. (Photo by Courier photographer Brian Cook)One week left, lots of questions to answer.And plenty of certainty in the NFL, too.First, to the seemingly sure things, start with the AFC. Does anyone really believe the conference title game won’t be at Gillette Stadium? Or that the Patriots won’t be hosting the Steelers?The separation in the AFC is as stark as the wide-openness of the NFC. Barring a collapse or more major injuries — Pittsburgh already is minus the league’s best receiver, and perhaps the NFL’s best player, Antonio Brown, who’s due back for the postseason — New England will go after its sixth Lombardi Trophy or Pittsburgh will try for its seventh.Kansas City could be pesky, but that’s about it. Jacksonville, despite its sensational turnaround, appears a year away from true championship status. Baltimore’s defense can scare opponents, while its offense only scares Ravens fans.Buffalo? Nice to see you after nearly two decades out of the playoffs, if you get there. The Chargers can do some dynamic things, but not nearly enough to be a threat.Simple.One more certainty: Cleveland’s headed for 0-16 ignominy, joining the 2008 Lions. That the Browns also lost 15 games last season undoubtedly stamps them as one of the worst teams in sports history.Of course, there always are some puzzlements in sports, and the AFC has these:— Will Hue Jackson really survive as Browns coach, even after owner Jimmy Haslam said he would be staying? New GM John Dorsey might have a say in that.“I’m not going to change,” Jackson said Sunday. “I’m going to be very consistent with this group. I have their total trust, they have mine. We just have to do some things better.”Some things? How about everything?— Will Chuck Pagano keep his coaching gig in Indianapolis after such a disappointing season punctuated by the fiasco of Andrew Luck’s injury rehab?— Is Marvin Lewis leaving Cincinnati, where, despite Sunday’s win, the team has been more Bungles than Bengals?— Does Todd Bowles get the contract extension he deserves with the talent-poor Jets?Tune in when the calendar turns to 2018.On the field, the NFC is far more intriguing. It’s hard to argue that any of the six teams who get into the playoffs — the Eagles, Vikings , Rams , Saints and Panthers have qualified, with the Falcons or Seahawks getting the other berth — isn’t capable of a long run. Injury-ravaged Seattle’s solid performance Sunday in eliminating the Cowboys makes that obvious, and the Falcons have some recent pedigree, even though they haven’t played up to the standard that got them so close to grabbing the Lombardi last February.“In these situations where it truly is a must-win game, we don’t have to make anything up,” receiver Doug Baldwin said. “We’re well-prepared for it. The process that we’ve gone through the whole season really helped us today.”Who is the favorite in the conference? Had Carson Wentz remained healthy, Philadelphia would have that role. While the Eagles are the leader for home-field advantage, the other four qualifiers won’t fear them — or anyone else — in the postseason.Well, until they have to face the formidable AFC champ, New England or Pittsburgh.There are coaching complexities in the NFC, too.— Who gets the job with the Giants, where it’s unlikely Steve Spagnuolo is given a shot with nothing much changing on the scoreboard under his interim leadership?— Is Kirk Cousins playing his final game as Redskins quarterback on Sunday, at the Giants, before striking it even more rich elsewhere?— Do John Fox in Chicago, Dirk Koetter in Tampa Bay and Jim Caldwell in Detroit remain as coaches?— Can Todd Gurley’s late surge — he’s actually been spectacular for most of the season — get him a league MVP award? Could Wentz, despite missing the month, still walk off with it?— Will the Vikings be the first team to play in a Super Bowl they are hosting in their stadium?Maybe of most interest, given the uproar over officiating this season, is how calls will affect the 12 teams who take to the road to the Super Bowl on Jan. 1? If you think the controversies of the last four months were wild, just wait.___More AP NFL: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL

Powered by Firework Indian duo of Ravichandran Ashwin and Jaydev Unadkat have demanded the Board of Cricket for Control in India (BCCI) to introduce face masks in the wake of Ashok Dinda incident, which saw the pacer survive a massive scare after being hit on the forehead with a ball.Advertisement Unadkat was the first to demand protection for the bowlers on the very same day when Dinda suffered injury. Taking to Twitter, the left-arm medium pacer suggested that such incidents have become regular, which calls for some action. He even asked Ravichandran Ashwin to give his take on this.Advertisement Ashwin, on February 14, concurred with his fellow national teammate, suggesting that ever since the T20 format has popular, these type of incidents have been taking place.On February 11, Dinda had survived a massive injury scare during Bengal’s T20 practice game for Mushtaq Ali Championship. The incident took place when the batsman hit the ball fiercely straight back at the bowler. Dinda tried to catch the ball, but was too late to react, which resulted in the ball hitting his forehead.He fell to the ground instantly, and the players surrounded and checked up him, fearing a serious injury. The physio and medical staff immediately reached the spot and took note of the hit he suffered. Advertisement
