      Enhanced Reputation ("Like" and "Dislike") Functionality Here on CL   07/24/2017

      With the recent software upgrade, CL now has a slightly enhanced and more descriptive "reputation" functionality. The reputation is what CL members can click in the lower right corner of each posting (forums, blogs, calendar events, etc.) to indicate their "like' or "dislike" of that posting. This functionality, previously known as a member's "reputation", has been enhanced and is now known as a member's "reaction". Instead of having only two choices ("like" or "dislike", represented by a +1 or -1), there now are seven different "reactions" that a member can express, including the simple "Like" and "Dislike". As was the case previously with reputations, Administrators of this website cannot be given reputation/reaction, however Moderators can, just as all regular members can. Here in graphic form is the complete list of options in word and emoji form, along with the associated numeric value: The "Like" and the "Upvote" and the "Downvote" are essentially the same as the prior "like" and "dislike" reputation. Those are similar to what is available on some of the larger social media, such as Facebook. As in the past with reputation, the use of reactions is optional. Reputations (now "reactions") are not favored by everyone. Prior feedback indicates approximately 30% of CL's members prefer that "reputation" [and now "reactions"] be disabled. However, the majority of CL's members prefer having the ability to indicate their "like" or "dislike" of a posting. The new, enhanced functionality means simply that CL members have more granularity as to what they can indicate to the viewers. If anyone would like to see additional "reactions", please contact CL management, and include a short discussion of what you would like to see and perhaps an emoji to suggest that reaction. Two new reactions that have already been suggested are "I agree" and "I disagree", which might be expressed respectively with green check mark (or thumbs up) and red X-mark (or thumbs down) style emoji. The reactions functionality is currently configured to display who expressed that reaction. If there is sufficient feedback, we can hide the member's Display Name, and show only the cumulative reactions.           To provide general feedback or ask for help regarding Chiriqui.Life, please leave a posting in Problems, Feedback and Suggestions or email support@chiriqui.life or private message to @Admin_01.

Panama and Costa Rica Agree to Integrated Border Control


EFE   | 29 Jun 2017 08.41pm

the Governments of Costa Rica and Panama signed today, after a bilateral meeting, an agreement for the creation of an integrated control.

The announcement was made in the framework of the Summit of Heads of State of the Central American Integration System (SICA) in which the president of Costa Rica, Luis Guillermo Solis, and his counterpart from Panama, Juan Carlos Varela, were witnesses of honor of the convention.

The agreement aims to establish general rules governing the operation of a control integrated in the border of the two countries, in order to avoid duplication of procedures and records for the flow of people, baggage, goods, vehicles and transport units.

The model will be implemented is called "Integrated Control Center" and which will be based on the development of non-intrusive technology, pointed to the authorities.

"Costa Rica and Panama have a strong relationship with an excellent coordination and collaboration to define common strategies," said Varela, at the close of the Summit of SICA.

The Panamanian President also highlighted the signing of the agreement and stressed the importance of the frontier bridge over the Sixaola river to facilitate tourism.

Solis and Varela agreed that both countries have a "very strong" and coordinated, which has enabled them to solve problems such as irregular flows of thousands of Cubans and Haitians in recent years.

The agreement was negotiated by the technical teams of both countries with the assistance of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
