first_imgMiami-Dade Public Schools Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho, School Board Members, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez, and mayors and police chiefs from Miami-Dade’s municipalities hosted the third Joint Roundtable on Youth Safety on Monday, October 29, at the Miami Senior High School.Since the first roundtable on January 2013, four working groups – In-School Youth Safety, Out -of-School Youth Safety, Youth Services and Community Education and Empowerment – have worked tirelessly to leverage the district’s collective resources, encourage and increase community engagement, and improve safety protocols for the district’s public spaces in order to create an envelope of safety around children.The second roundtable held in March 2013 allowed mayors and police chiefs to review short- and long-term recommendations by the working groups and discuss how to best implement them throughout communities.           The focus of this third roundtable was to provide an update of the work and develop a joint legislative request for full funding by the Florida Legislature for the requirement of a police officer at every public school and discuss possible statutory changes to SB 7026.last_img read more

Wilkin Castillo’s return to MLB after 10-year odyssey can serve as guide to other players

first_imgWilkin Castillo has been everywhere, man, in his pursuit of another shot at the major leagues. Behold the list of his home cities over the past 10 years: Louisville, Escogido, Gwinnett, Colorado Springs, Torreon, Tijuana, Reynosa, Indianapolis, Buffalo, Manchester, Moosic, Trenton, Central Islip, New Orleans. Don’t forget that one spring in Glendale, either.Saturday, he was in Philadelphia, looking as though he never left the Show. “You love seeing those guys get opportunities, because you know the road they’ve been on,” Mattingly said, per MLB.com. “Even though you haven’t been there every step of the way, you know it’s been a road that’s a lot of bus trips, a lot of spring trainings, a lot of work. He’s just put in a ton of work to get back.”Castillo struck a blow for all the guys in affiliated and independent ball who are grinding away to get just one more start, just one more at-bat, just one more opportunity to be a full-time big leaguer. The tread on his tires is wearing thin at age 35, but he’s still rolling along. Regardless of what happens to Castillo when Alfaro is ready to return — Castillo is sharing catching duties with fellow journeyman Bryan Holaday — the fact is became a major leaguer again. He can carry that accomplishment with him wherever he goes next. The Marlins called up Castillo from Triple-A New Orleans on Friday to replace injured catcher Jorge Alfaro (concussion). He went right to work, starting behind the plate and batting eighth. In his third at-bat, he drilled a two-run double that proved to be the game-winning hit.His last hit in the majors before Saturday came almost 10 years ago to the day: June 20, 2009, for the Reds vs. the White Sox.He called his sequel “indescribable.”MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZN “It’s a lot of effort, just playing winter ball in the Dominican league, the Mexican League, the minor leagues for 10 years,” the Dominican Republic native told reporters through an interpreter (per MLB.com). “So just being up here and see things happening, I thank God, and I thank the Marlins for giving me the opportunity to be here at the major league level.”Marlins manager Don Mattingly never experienced such difficulties during his 14-year career, but he still appreciates Castillo’s determination.last_img read more

The ‘one club man’ of the Premier

first_imgHarry Kane, ‘one club man’?The Tottenham striker is considered one of the best on the planet. However, he has never left the club that saw him grow. He only went through Norwich, Millwall or Leicester to grow as a player.But all his good years of sports career have been spent between White Hart Line, Wembley and the new stadium. Who knows if some European giant will put an irrepressible offer on the table. Until then, Kane walks steadily toward the spurs’ history book. In terms of numbers, total 278 matches and an outstanding number of goals: 181.The most ‘loyal’ players, by team *Arsenal: Emi Martinez.Manchester City: David Silva.Aston Villa: Jes Steer and Jack Grealish.Manchester United: Phil Jones and De Gea.Bournemouth: Charlie Daniels.Newcastle United: Rob Elliot.Brighton and Hove Albion: Lewis Dunk.Norwich: Alexander Tettey.Burnley: Kevin Long.Sheffield United: Chris Basham.Chelsea: César Azpilicueta.Southampton: James Ward-Prowse.Crystal Palace: Joel Ward.Tottenham: Harry kane.Everton: Leighton Baines.Watford: Troy Deeney.Leicester: Kasper Schmeichel.West Ham: Mark Noble.Liverpool: Jordan Henderson.Wolverhampton: Matt Doherty.* Transfermarkt data. The ‘one club man’ is becoming less frequent in the world of football. Every summer astronomical amounts of money are moved from one place to another and the players change their jerseys frequently. It is rare to see footballers spend a full decade jumping on the same pitch and even more so not move from one place in their entire sports career. This is also the case in the Premier League, although it is one of the competitions in which there is the most loyalty across the planet. So much so that several Spaniards who once came to England have become steeped in their culture and today are the oldest of their respective clubs.David Silva, who has already announced that he will leave Manchester City next June, is the best example of this. The canary arrived in 2010 from Valencia and now understands that his time in England has ended. Along the way, he has left his mark on the Etihad and has been an important part of a dominating team in recent years. He has worn the citizen shirt 424 times, with remarkable statistics: 74 goals and 137 assists.Despite being questioned countless times, Old Trafford admires and respects its guardian. Already Nine years have passed since De Gea signed for Manchester United. In fact, he is the footballer who has been at the club the longest with Phil Jones. He put on gloves 394 times. Twenty games less sum César Azpilicueta (374) since coming to Chelsea in the 2012-13 season. His loyalty and commitment have led him to wear a captain’s armband that once wore what is now his coach: Frank Lampard.Mark Noble, the most faithfulThe West Ham captain, at 32, is the longest-running player in his club in the entire Premier League. The midfielder has played matches with his team’s jersey continuously since 2006. It is close to 500 matches, which will reach this year if the coronavirus does not prevent it. Leighton Baines he signed for Everton in 2007 from Wigan. Since then, the Goodison Park lane has been his. The two of them are the oldest, although the least long-lived in this study dates from 2014: Chris Basham of Sheffield. In Spain, without going any further, the player who has spent the most time in Granada arrived in 2017.last_img read more

Digicel Sportsmax to televise Mayweather’s ‘final showdown’

first_img retire undefeated KINGSTON: Digicel SportsMax yesterday secured broadcast rights for the Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather Jr vs Andre Berto fight this Saturday, with coverage of the undercard bouts beginning at 7 p.m. and the main fight at 10 p.m. The Digicel SportsMax Fight Night, presented by Fight Sports TV, is being dubbed ‘The Final Showdown’, with the pound-for-pound king Mayweather declaring that the fight will be his last. Mayweather (48-0, 26 KOs) will face Berto (30-3, 23 KOs) to defend his undefeated record and World Boxing Association and World Boxing Council welterweight titles. It comes on the heels of his last bout in May against Manny Pacquiao – which racked up record viewership around the world – that further added to his massive net worth by more than US$400 million. Mayweather is set to leave the ring for good, either with a bang or suffer his first defeat of his career, at a capacity MGM Grand in Las Vegas. If he wins, the 38-year-old’s record will equal that of Rocky Marciano, who retired from the sport undefeated. Berto who was born in the United States but has deep roots in Haiti, started his career with 27 straight wins and was once regarded as one of the most exciting young talents in the world. Although he has previously held the Championship title, Berto is still considered the underdog, after suffering from numerous career setbacks. With nothing to lose and having professed to being in the best shape of his life, Berto declared he will be coming after Mayweather with everything he’s got. A win for Berto would be the biggest upset in boxing history. “This could be the last fight of the biggest name in boxing in the last decade and fans are all waiting to see how ‘Money’ Mayweather will bring his legacy to a close. We’re really excited to be able to show the bout exclusively and are looking forward to an exciting ‘Final Showdown’ with the pound-for-pound king,” said Tanya Lee, Digicel SportsMax Caribbean marketing manager. Along with the Mayweather vs Berto bout, Digicel SportsMax is also regional rights holder of premium sporting content such as the Barclays Premier League, the UEFA Champions League, La Liga, the NBA, IAAF Diamond League, IAAF World Challenge meets, the Women’s Tennis Association premier events, the Ashes, Australia and England cricket, the Indian Premier League and more.

President declares June 25 a National Day of mourning

first_imgPiracy massacreAlmost two months after the deadly piracy attacks that occurred in Surinamese waters had left four persons dead and 11 others still missing, President David Granger has issued a proclamation listing Monday, June 25, 2018 as a National Day of Morning in memory of the victims.A statement from the Ministry of the Presidency on Friday said that this action was taken by the President using powers under Article 99 (1) of the Constitution.“… Whereas His Excellency, the President, considers that the Co-operative Republic of Guyana should observe Monday the 25th day of June 2018 as a national day of mourning, as a solemn memorial to the victims of the massacre of Guyanese fishermen off the coast of Suriname between the 27th day of April, 2018 and the 3rd day of May, 2018; now, therefore…I declare Monday the 25th day of June, 2018 a national day of mourning for that purpose,” the proclamation details.Moreover, the document calls on all “authorities, boards, commissions, corporations, public agencies, ministries and citizens to fly the Golden Arrowhead of Guyana at half-staff to demonstrate solidarity with the families of those killed in these grisly and gruesome acts, and to accord due homage, respect and reverence to the memory of the victims.”Late in the evening of April 27, 2018, four boats were attacked by a group of privates, who brutalised the occupants then threw them overboard. Two days later, another boat was attacked, and the captain was killed. That crew is still missing.Most of the victims from both attacks are Guyanese fishermen who were living in neighbouring Suriname. Among those still missing are Guyanese Ramesh Sanchara, Ganesh Persaud, Bharat Heralall, Ralph Anthony and Tiaknauth Mohabir.Only four persons from the first attack survived, while four bodies have since been recovered.However, only two of the recovered bodies have thus far been identified. They are Danesh Singh who, along with the other two unidentified persons, was recovered in Surinamese waters, and 33-year-old Gavin Outar of 18 Sheet Anchor, East Canje, Berbice, whose body washed up at the Number 63 Beach in Guyana.Meanwhile, 13 suspects presently remain in Surinamese authorities’ custody, including “Crackhead,” who confessed to killing at least five of the fishermen. He reportedly was “following orders” to “get rid” of the men after brutalising them.“Crackhead” did not divulge any information about his accomplices, but based on descriptions given by the five survivors, the other men arrested were picked up at several locations in Suriname.Days after the breakthrough, Surinamese Police officer Premcharan Ravikan was found dead hours after allegedly being kidnapped by Guyanese. His body was discovered with at least five stab wounds and one gunshot wound.Hours after the discovery of Ravikan’s body, a Guyanese fisherman walked into a Police station in Suriname and confessed to the heinous crime. It was established after Ravikan’s death that he had provided the gun that was used in the execution-style killing of Guyanese businessman Somnath Manohar on March 30 last.After his death, Manohar’s family had allegedly offered members of a gang US$50,000 to revenge his killing.Suriname law enforcement officials believe the recent piracy attacks were in retaliation for Manohar’s death. However, one of the men fingered in the piracy attacks is Nakool Manohar, brother of the late Somnath Manohar.Last week, Nakool Manohar, called “Fyah”, 39, of Number 43 Village and another one of the attackers, Premnauth Persaud, called “Sanbad” or “Boy”, 43, of Cromarty Village appeared at the Springlands Magistrate’s Court, where they were jointly charged with two counts of murder. They were not required to plead to the indictable charge which stated that between April 27 and May 3, at sea, they murdered Tillacknauth Mohabir, called “Caiman”; and Mahesh Sarjoo, called “Koba,” during the course of a robbery.The men were previously charged separately, but those charges were withdrawn and reinstated jointly. Nevertheless, as investigations continue, the two countries are looking for a breakthrough, as well as to place the suspects before the courts. (Vahnu Manikchand)last_img read more

Open-meeting victory

first_imgSupervisors reverse years-old suppression of public comment. If they could get away with it, elected officials at every level of government would probably ban unsolicited public comment at meetings altogether. They often think their time is too important to be taken up by the contrary, pointless or odd observations of members of the public who have nothing better to do than come to public meetings and speak. Luckily for the public, they have not yet figured out a way to do this legally. Open-meeting laws require that elected officials oblige us with some forum to comment on their actions – no matter how much it annoys them. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Los Angeles City Council recently tightened rules on language use and allows only two minutes per speaker. On controversial topics, the Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education has typically limited speakers to a total of seven – even on important issues such as eminent domain of neighborhoods. But it’s the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors – the body most insulated from the wrath of voters – that placed the tightest comment rules on regular folks. Last week, the supervisors voted to drop the restrictions in place for 15 years. We’d praise the move, except this was the same body that for years happily limited citizens from addressing them to once every three months. As well, the reversal stemmed not from a revelation that suppressing public comment was wrong, but because a complaint was made. It’s the right decision for the wrong reasons. But, hopefully, this change will stop further encroachments on the public’s right to address its elected representatives.last_img read more
