Miami-Dade’s Board of County Commissioners Passes Domestic Violence Resolution

first_img“I am very appreciative of the Board of County Commissioners for sponsoring Vice Chair Sosa’s Resolution and for promoting an awareness campaign to fight domestic violence,” said State Attorney Fernandez Rundle. “Our victims need to know they are not alone.” Miami-Dade State Attorney, Katherine Fernandez Rundle State Attorney Fernandez Rundle appeared before the Commission to make an important presentation regarding domestic violence, delivering the message that staying home does not mean staying trapped in a situation of domestic violence. For those who have been living in an abusive relationship, domestic violence is a great concern especially during this time. Being in self-isolation due to this COVID-19 crisis and staying at home with someone who is an abuser could be a matter of life or death. “We need an awareness campaign to ensure potential victims in our community know the courts are open and issuing protective orders, and police are available to respond to abusive and violent calls. Shelter and services are available”, she said in a release. As of May 4th, shelters in the community are available and all are CDC compliant. The State Attorney’s Office prosecutors and support staff, both misdemeanor and felony, are working remotely to file criminal cases and assist victims. center_img Victims can call the State Attorney’s Office Domestic Violence Unit at 305-547-0140. For services, victims can call Miami-Dade County’s Coordinated Victims Assistance Center (CVAC) Helpline at 305-285-5900. Miami – At the Miami-Dade County Commission meeting held on May 5th, 2020, Vice Chairwoman Rebeca Sosa advanced legislation supporting the creation of an outreach campaign with State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle to inform domestic violence victims that shelters, domestic violence courts and service providers are available and have taken steps to keep families together and safe from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Naquin Making Most of Opportunity

first_imgTyler Naquin finally made it to The Show by cracking the Tribe’s Opening Day roster in April, but he frequented the Cleveland-Columbus shuttle for the first two months of the season.  He was only up initially due to Lonnie Chisenhall and Michael Brantley‘s injuries and the PED suspension of Abraham Almonte, but he made quite an impression and got called up for good on June 2.  The 2012 first round pick has not looked back since and has placed himself right in the middle of the AL Rookie of the Year discussion.Whether it’s a chip on his shoulder from being sent down a few times or just adjusting to major league pitching, Naquin has scorched the ball since being recalled on June 2.  Wednesday’s game against Kansas City was a perfect example.  He went 3 for 4 with 2 home runs, a double, 6 RBIs, and a walk.  In 35 games since the call-up, Naquin has batted .327 with 12 dingers and 27 RBIs.While Naquin wasn’t expected to make a big splash this season, his numbers stack up well compared with other AL rookies.  His 12 home runs are tied for first among rookies, and he leads all rookies in triples, slugging percentage, and OPS.  He is second in average (just .005 points off the lead), runs, and on base percentage, and ranks fourth in hits, fifth in RBIs, and sixth in walks among qualified AL rookies.The biggest surprise from all of those numbers is the fact that Naquin is a centerfielder who isn’t supposed to hit for power.  He never hit more than 10 home runs in any minor league season, but has managed to hit 12 in a span of just 36 games.Naquin has built a solid Rookie of the Year resume so far this season, and of course he will most likely hit a slump at some point in the year, but the potential hardware is not nearly as important as what he’s meant to the contending Indians this season.  Naquin, along with Rajai Davis, has provided stability in the Tribe outfield and unexpected pop at the bottom of the order.  While it was unexpected, Naquin has developed into a key part of the Tribe offense as the team fights for a playoff berth.

Newcastle ‘by far the most pressing’, can’t be faulted for efforts…

first_imgAccording to French newspaper L’Equipe, the 25-year-old has been a target for Newcastle United, Tottenham Hotspur and two newly promoted Premier League clubs, Fulham and Wolverhampton Wanderers.All four clubs have made offers and Rafael Benitez’s side were ‘by far the most pressing’ club for Plea. Sevilla’s director of football also contacted Nice to see if they have any chance of signing the forward.Plea is aware of the offers from clubs across Europe, but the report claims he does not see himself playing in the Premier League, and Newcastle are going to lose out.Borussia Mönchengladbach have won the race to sign Plea this summer. The Frenchman will travel to Germany to undergo his medical tomorrow and sign a four-year contract with the Bundesliga outfit.Nice director general Julien Fournier confirms Mönchengladbach was Plea’s “first choice” club to join this summer.“Mönchengladbach was the first choice of the player and we did everything to comply, from the moment the interests of the club were respected. There was no question of getting into a bidding war, given Alassane’s exemplary behaviour on and off the pitch,” said Fournier.Newcastle’s efforts for the player have been repeatedly pushed, and again today by L’Equipe, so the club can’t be faulted for trying.

Jorge Sampaoli has a defensive headache and calls up four B squad players

first_img CEST 16/08/2016 at 19:22 The Sevilla manager, Argentine Jorge Sampaoli, continues to have a defensive headache given the players missing due to injury and suspension.  Argentine defender Nico Pareja, who missed the first game, is still out injured. He has had to resort to calling up four youth team players to complete his 19-man squad for the second-leg of the Spanish Super Cup this Wednesday at the Camp Nou. The injuries to French centre-back Adil Rami (muscular soreness) and left-back Sergio Escudero (knock to the ribs), are added to the suspensions of two other central defenders, the Portuguese Daniel Carriço and Frenchman Timothee Kolodziejczak. EFEcenter_img Due to this, Sampaoli has had to use players from B squad ‘Sevilla Atletico’ to replace the absentees for the clash, which the Andalusians enter trailing 2-0 from the home first-leg. Another two players from the Sevilla Atletico set-up will travel to the Catalan capital, keeper Jose Antonio Caro, who was on the bench in the first-leg given the injury to David Soria, and central defender Diego Gonzalez, who was watching from the stands after missing out on the matchday squad. The Sevilla squad for Wednesday is formed by the following players: Keepers: Sergio Rico and José Antonio Caro. Defenders: David Carmona, Diego González, Gabriel Mercado, Mariano and Alex Muñoz. Midfielders: Iborra, Kiyotake, N’Zonzi, Kranevitter, Correa, Franco Vázquez, Ganso, Vitolo and Sarabia. Strikers: Konoplyanka, Ben Yedder and Vietto. Right-back David Carmona and young centre-back Alez Muñoz (signed from Hercules this season to play in the Second division) have been called up.last_img read more
