The Meteorite Museum begins process to be 100% Free of Tobacco Smoke and Emissions

Lunes 24 de Abril de 2023

Cultur already obtained the corresponding recognitions for the XXI Century and Chichén Itzá

Mérida, Yucatán, April 24, 2023. In order to obtain the recognition of "Space 100% Free of Tobacco Smoke and Emissions", today, staff of the Meteorite Museum, located in Progreso, took the awareness talk that was in charge of the psychologist Shanny Cámara Canto, responsible for that program in Yucatan and trainer of the Health Services in the State.

The talk was attended by 18 workers of the tourist site that represents 87% of the total (21), so that it was covered with the minimum requirement that is 80%, to continue with the process.

The next step will be to install signage signs warning visitors of the ban on smoking or vaping and that they can be subject to sanctions ranging from reprimands, fines or even arrests.

Then, Cultur will organize and carry out its "third mattress" to decontaminate both the interior and the surroundings of the building of cigarette butts that are highly polluting waste.

It should be noted that the Meteorite Museum will be the third service unit that will obtain the recognition of 100% Free Space of Tobacco Smoke and Emissions, which already have the Convention and Exhibition Center Siglo XXI and the Parador de Chichén Itzá.

Mauricio Díaz Montalvo, general director of Cultur, asked his collaborators that, once the corresponding recognition is obtained, the space becomes a kind of protected area, so that everyone has the responsibility to ensure that no one enters smoking or vaping.

-With all due respect we will have to ask people to put out their cigarette or vape and if they do not want to do so then urge them to leave the place ... In extreme cases, which we hope will not occur, request the help of the municipal police to proceed in accordance with the law, he added.

During the talk, Cámara Canto explained among other things that the use of electronic cigarettes and vapers, which today can go unnoticed because they look like boxes of flavored gum or markers, definitely do not constitute a safe way to quit conventional cigarettes.

Vape manufacturers say they only contain propylene glycol, glycerin and flavorings, but hide that they actually also contain ether, benzyl alcohol, menthol, ethyl tipinate, isoamyl acetate, eugenol (used to kill fish) and linalool, which is used as an insecticide against flies and cockroaches.

In addition, added the speaker, studies have shown that electronic devices when activated generate significant levels of cadmium, nickel, copper, tin, lead, silver and aluminum that end up lodging in the body.

It should also be considered that heating the battery increases the risk of cancer of those who use the aforementioned devices.

Cultur reports good progress in the video mapping of San Gervasio in Valladolid

It involves a technical-scientific process and complicated design and production
Jueves 25 de Mayo de 2023

Mérida, Yucatán, May 25, 2023. In relation to the note published today in its medium (Diario de Yucatán) with the title of "Wait of four months of a video mapping", in which it is indicated that in this project contemplated for the temple of San Gervasio it is not yet specified and that there are still no works or adaptations and equipment, Cultur wishes to specify the following:

It is important to note that projects of this nature require a series of processes, permits, production, etc., that take time, which began at the beginning of the year when it was announced.

For example, to install the booth where the equipment will be, which are very sophisticated, a permit is required, which after studying its location is granted. We have already worked, as a team with the authorities of INAH-Yucatan, and soon it will be obtained, so that construction can begin, in which we will have the support of the City Council of Valladolid.

While the above is being done, work has also been done in parallel on the production of the video that is practically ready, but it will also have to go through the approval of the aforementioned federal authority that is in the best disposition to support the project; They have already made some observations and the adjustments and adjustments are being processed, so that everything is as it should be and then it can be projected.

What does it mean to make a video mapping?

Doing a job of this magnitude is not as simple as it might seem, it requires a technical-scientific work such as producing the animated part, taking care that there is a perfect splicing of it with the audio or narration, and that all the images are consistent with the narrative.

The script requires research work and the music used has to be original, for the issue of copyright, so it must be commissioned to professionals for its production.

We understand that many people would like to see this cultural spectacle, and we ask for your understanding for the time it takes, but for all that it implies it has to be done with all the thoroughness it deserves. As an example is the videomapping of Dzibilchaltún that its creation took about 12 months.

Finally, it should be noted that this video mapping will be added to the existing ones of "Nights of Kukulkan", "Echoes of Uxmal", "Steps of Light" in Dzibilchaltún, "Paths of Light" in Izamal, "The Heroic Night" which is also in Valladolid, and "Nights of the Picheta Passage".

In short, it remains to say that there is already a good progress in this project and that soon people will be delighted with this cultural event that will be screened in the temple of San Gervasio.

Yucatan: Mauricio Vila delivers 51 patrols in 27 municipalities

Jueves 20 de Abril de 2023

To continue strengthening security work in Yucatan, Governor Mauricio Vila Dosal delivered 51 police vehicles to 27 municipalities in the interior of the state, which already totals one thousand 296 units granted during the current administration.

Vila Dosal put at the service of the municipalities 30 pick-up trucks equipped with turrets, electronic sirens, exterior cameras, horn, roll bar and tumbaburros; as well as 21 motorcycles with siren and horn, equipment that adds to those delivered last January and where resources exceeding 30 million pesos were invested.

Highlighting that when there is a police presence, the commission of crimes is inhibited, Vila Dosal recalled that so far in his administration almost one thousand 300 vehicles have been delivered to the Ministry of Public Security (SSP) and the municipalities, in addition to transfer ambulances and fire trucks; And for this year 200 more patrol cars will be delivered to the police corporation.

Vila Dosal called on mayors to take care of and make good use of the new units, since it is the responsibility of the municipalities to preserve the safety of their inhabitants, meanwhile, the state police is to support them and assist them in cases that may exceed them.

Before elements of the Armed Forces and state and municipal police, he recalled that, today, the Yucatan police is the only one in the entire country that provides its elements with a salary above the national average, which this year increased by 10 percent; access to health services; Infonavit so that they can take out a home like any other worker; In addition, it offers scholarships of 100 percent enrollment and tuition to children of police officers who take the exam at any university in the state, whether public or private. It also supports students with 2,600 pesos bimonthly for their food and transportation expenses.

"Why do we do this? Because we want our elements to know that if they are honest and do their job, they will have the basic needs of their family solved and that they can see in their police career a way to grow family in the medium and long term because we are not interested in having police officers who last us a year or a year and a half,  We are interested in having police officers who last us 20, 30 years and who see that they can have good conditions in the Police," he said.

Vila Dosal recalled that, in 2018, when he began his administration, the budget of the Ministry of Public Security was one thousand 982 million pesos, which in four years has had an increase of 72 percent, going to 3 thousand 400 million pesos, additional to the Yucatan program that contemplated the acquisition of cameras to go from 2 thousand 200 to 7 thousand; the new Control, Command, Communications, Computing, Coordination and Intelligence Center (C5i), the boats and the helicopter for rescue work.

The head of the SSP, Luis Felipe Saidén Ojeda explained that of the thousand 294 vehicles delivered in this administration, 631 belong to the Ministry of Public Security and 663 to the municipalities between patrols and medical transport vehicles; that is why there is often the presence of both state, municipal and federal police in the 106 municipalities of Yucatan and on state highways.

On this occasion, he said, the municipalities of Conkal, Chemax, Chumayel, Espita, Hunucmá, Izamal, Kanasín, Maní, Maxcanú, Opichén, Oxkutzcab, Progreso, Río Lagartos, Tekal de Venegas, Tekax, Tetiz, Timucuy, Tinum, Tixméhuac, Tixkokob, Tizimín, Umán and Valladolid received equipment.

Saidén Ojeda recalled that there are one thousand 895 cameras working from the C5i to have greater security in their municipalities.

"You know that previously there were no cameras in the municipalities and today the governor's instruction was that the municipalities will have the video surveillance infrastructure to make them safer every day. It is the constitutional obligation of each municipality to guarantee the safety and heritage of its inhabitants, however, the state government has always provided security and support to the municipalities to guarantee the lives of all citizens who inhabit or visit our state," he concluded.
