Rogelio Funes Mori anotó dos goles, llegó a 90 anotaciones con la camiseta del Monterrey y se acercó a Mario da Souza Mota “Bahía”, quien se retiró con 96.

La Jornada 3 del Apertura 2019 representó un reto para los Rayados, pues enfrente tenían a un equipo que se plantó bien, aprovechó las oportunidades y complicó el partido.

Sin embargo, los Rayados lucharon durante todo el encuentro y obtuvieron la recompensa al esfuerzo.

19′ RAYADOS 0 – 1 LEÓN | Víctor Sosa

Jean Meneses cobró un tiro de esquina, Ramiro González hizo contacto de cabeza y Víctor Sosa remató con la testa para abrir el marcador.

42′ RAYADOS 0 – 2 LEÓN | Ángel Mena

Joel Campbell abrió para Víctor Sosa quien pasó de primera a Ángel Mena. El delantero esmeralda disparó hacia dentro del arco.

44′ RAYADOS 1 – 2 LEÓN | Rogelio Funes Mori

Dorlan Pabon cobró un tiro de esquina y César Montes cabeceó y clavó el balón en el larguero. Rogelio Funes Mori aprovechó el rebote y, también de cabeza, mandó el esférico al fondo de las redes.

Al minuto 57, Miguel Layún se atrevió con un disparo de larga distancia que pasó rozando el poste del arco rival.

67′ RAYADOS 2 – 2 LEÓN | César Montes

Miguel Layún cobró una falta desde el sector derecho. César Montes se alzió y cabeceó cruzado y picado, imposible para Rodolfo Cota.

90′ RAYADOS 3 – 2 LEÓN | Rogelio Funes Mori

Los Rayados siguieron presionando durante todo el partido y la recompensa al esfuerzo llegó. Segundos antes de que terminara el partido, Maxi Meza mandó un centro raso desde la banda de la derecha. Rogelio Funes Mori se anticipó y punteó el balón ante la salida de Rodolfo Cota. ¡Golazo que dio el tirunfo a los Rayados!

El próximo martes 6 de agosto visitarán a los Cafetaleros de Chiapas dentro de la Jornada 2 de la Copa Mx. ¡Vamos, Rayados!

 Belfast Bash: Michael Conlan Scores KO

Aug 5, 2019


Conlan stops Diego Alberto Ruiz in 9 in front of sold-out Falls Park crowd

(Photo Credit: Top Rank)
 
BELFAST (Aug. 3, 2019) —The sold-out crowd of around 10,000 at Falls Park came to see Michael Conlan put on a memorable show. Conlan, Belfast’s featherweight fistic superhero, stepped on the gas late and knocked out veteran Diego Alberto Ruiz in the ninth round of a scheduled 10-rounder Saturday evening under the lights. 

With the win, Conlan (12-0, 7 KOs), who is ranked in the top 10 by two of the major sanctioning organizations, moved closer to a world title shot.
 
It was the second hometown bout of Conlan’s professional career, but this one was a particularly special occasion. The fight card was one of the premier events of the annual Féile an Phobail summer festival in West Belfast.
 
Ruiz (21-3, 10 KOs) attempted to move forward, but he was thwarted by the movement of Conlan, who alternated from orthodox to southpaw at times throughout the fight. Just as it appeared Ruiz was destined to go the distance, Conlan turned up the heat, knocked him down, and then forced a corner stoppage.
 
After the fight, this is what Conlan had to say:
 
“I am a very adaptable fighter. I can box, and I can push the pace. In the end, I got the finish, so I’m happy that I figured it out. I worked it out and answered questions of myself. When he was hurt, I got the finish.”
 
“Before the fight, I was really nervous, I’m not going to lie. I wasn’t even acting like I wasn’t nervous. I was just myself. I was nervous today. I didn’t know what to expect. When I started my ring walk, that’s the stuff I live for.”
 
“{The atmosphere} didn’t scare me as much as I thought it would. The first two songs were unbelievable, and when the Red Hot Chili Peppers (“Can’t Stop”) kicked in for my ring walk, I said to myself, ‘This is the reason I picked that song.’”
 
“I’m prouder that I got the finish. I can box people and I want longevity in my career, but to get the finish was extra special, and I’m really happy I did.”

“I’m ready for a world title soon. This time next year, I want to have a world title around my waist.”

City issues nationwide request for qualifications for public artwork honoring Barbara Jordan

Aug 5, 2019

The City of Houston Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs is starting the process of selecting an artist to create the city’s first permanent outdoor artwork commemorating the life and legacy of the late Congresswoman Barbara Jordan, Mayor Sylvester Turner announced today.

The site selected for the artwork is the historic African American Library at the Gregory School, a Special Collections archive of The Houston Public Library, at 1300 Victor St, Houston, TX 77019 in Freedmen’s Town.

“It’s well past time we memorialize our hero Barbara Jordan with inspiring public art, especially since the city’s art collection contains only one outdoor sculpture or monument honoring a woman,” Mayor Sylvester Turner said.

 “Peggy,” a statue by John Gutzon Borglum, honors Elizabeth Stevens MacGregor in MacGregor Park.

Artists residing in the United States are invited to submit qualifications for the opportunity to design, fabricate and install a tribute to the pioneering educator, civic leader and venerated Houston native.

The project has a total budget of up to $235,000. The deadline for submission of qualifications is Monday, Sept. 23, 11:59 p.m. CST. For details, go to www.houstontx.gov/culturalaffairs/barbarajordan.html.

A panel of arts professionals, stakeholders and community representatives will review qualified submissions and select a short list of artists to receive stipends to create and present detailed concept designs for final selection.

The final commission will be provided through two contracts with Houston Arts Alliance, one for design and one for construction. The selected artist must be able and willing to sign a contract with Houston Arts Alliance for the commission.

The artwork is funded by the City of Houston Civic Art Program.  In 1999, the City of Houston established an ordinance mandating that 1.75% of qualified Capital Improvement Project dollars be set aside for civic art.

For more information about the City’s Civic Art Program go to www.HouCityArt.org or follow the Mayor’s office of Cultural Affairs on Facebook & Instagram @HoustonMOCA.

Born in 1936, Barbara Jordan attended Texas Southern University, where she graduated magna cum laude, and received a law degree from Boston University. After teaching at Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, she opened a law practice in Houston and became active in politics. In 1966 she won election to the Texas Senate, become the state’s first African-American senator since 1883. In 1972 Jordan was elected to the United States House of Representatives from the Eighteenth Texas District in Houston. She was the first African American woman from the South to serve in Congress.

In 1996 she was the first woman and the first African American to deliver the keynote address at a Democratic national convention. Jordan retired from politics in 1979 and resumed teaching. She once again delivered the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in 1992 and she served as chairwoman of the United States Commission on Immigration Reform in 1994. Barbra Jordan died Jan. 17, 1996.

DECLARACIÓN DE ÓSCAR DE LA HOYA SOBRE LA DECISIÓN DE DESPOJAR A CANELO ÁLVAREZ DEL TÍTULO MUNDIAL MEDIANO DE LA FIB

Aug 5, 2019

DECLARACIÓN DE ÓSCAR DE LA HOYA SOBRE LA DECISIÓN DE DESPOJAR A CANELO ÁLVAREZ DEL TÍTULO MUNDIAL MEDIANO DE LA FIB       

 LOS ÁNGELES, California 1 de agosto de 2019. – Óscar de la Hoya, Presidente y Jefe Ejecutivo de Golden Boy, ha emitido la siguiente declaración sobre la decisión de la Federación Internacional de Boxeo (IBF por sus siglas en inglés) de despojar a Canelo Álvarez del cinturón mundial mediano de ese organismo. “Estamos extremadamente decepcionados de la FIB por forzar al mejor peleador del orbe de abandonar su titulo mundial. Habíamos estado en serias negociaciones con el promotor de Sergiy Derevyanchenko. Le ofrecimos a su equipo una cantidad de dinero sin precedentes para un peleador de ese nivel y popularidad limitada, pero la verdad es que ahora estoy seguro que nunca tuvieron una intención de llegar a un acuerdo. En cambio, querían obligarnos a renunciar al cinturón de Canelo. Esto es un insulto al boxeo, y lo que es más importante un insulto a los aficionados del boxeo. La decisión confirma las preocupaciones ya existentes sobre la credibilidad del campeonato de la FIB. Canelo heredó un retador obligatorio tras derrotar a Daniel Jacobs, irónicamente el hombre que superó a Derevyanchenko, por lo que despojarlo de su titulo sin darle tiempo suficiente para realizar la mejor pelea posible, es lo que realmente está mal en el boxeo, y planeo considerar agresivamente todas las acciones legales posibles”, puntualizó.

ADDITIONAL VICTORY TOUR NOTES:

  • Korea Republic played in the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup – its third Women’s World Cup – but finished at the bottom of a difficult Group A after falling to host France in the opening game of the tournament, then dropping matches to Nigeria and Norway.
  • The USA has played 11 games against Korea Republic in its history, going 9-0-2, with the most recent pair coming in October 2017, a 3-1 win in New Orleans and a 6-0 win in Cary, N.C.
  • Korea Republic notably tied the USA 0-0 in its final warm-up game before the Americans went on to win the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
  • Korea Republic was also the opponent on June 20, 2013, in a 5-0 U.S. win that featured Abby Wambach scoring four first half goals to tie, and then break, Mia Hamm’s all-time world scoring record for international soccer.
  • The match at Bank of America Stadium will be the USA’s third at the facility. The first two were remarkably different results, a 9-0 win over Japan in 1999 and a 0-0 draw with Iceland in 2000.
  • The WNT has a 15-0-1 all-time record in the state of North Carolina, including the aforementioned visits to Charlotte (2), along with stops in Davidson (3), Greensboro (1) and Cary (10).
  • Since losing its first game of 2019 to France in Le Havre, the USA is unbeaten in its last 16 matches, including a 13-game winning streak and seven consecutive victories at the World Cup.

ADDITIONAL WOMEN’S WORLD CUP NOTES:

  • At the World Cup, the USA set a record for most goals in tournament history with 26, breaking its own record of 25, set in 1991 in six games.
  • The USA also set records for most goals in a single Women’s World Cup match and largest margin of victory when it beat Thailand 13-0 in its Group F opener, a game that featured 10 second-half goals, also a record.
  • Alex Morgan tied the record for most goals in a single match when she scored five against Thailand, matching the feat of Michelle Akers against Chinese Taipei at the 1991 Women’s World Cup in China.
  • Jill Ellis became the first coach to win two Women’s World Cup titles. Italy’s Vittorio Pozzo won the Men’s World Cup in 1934 and 1938.
  • The USA has now won 12 consecutive World Cup matches (five in 2015 and seven in 2019), which is the longest winning streak in Women’s World Cup history.
  • The title was the USA’s fourth out of eight Women’s World Cups that have been contested. No other country has more than two.
  • Rose Lavelle (24 years, 54 days) became the second-youngest American to score in a World Cup Final, trailing only Alex Morgan (22 years, 15 days) in 2011.
  • The USA scored inside of 12 minutes in six of its seven Women’s World Cup matches. Only in the World Cup Final did the USA fail to score early.
  • The USA was ahead in its World Cup games for 70.2 percent of the time. The Americans never trailed in their seven contests and led for 442 of 630 total minutes.
  • With six goals and three assists in the World Cup, Megan Rapinoe won the Golden Boot as the tournament’s top scorer and also won the Golden Ball as the tournament MVP.
  • Alex Morgan won the Silver Boot as the second-leading scorer. She also had six goals and three assists but played more minutes than Rapinoe.
  • Lavelle won the Bronze Ball as the third-best player in the tournament.
  • Rapinoe’s goal against the Netherlands made her the oldest player, at 34 years and two days, to score in a Women’s World Cup Final. She broke teammate Carli Lloyd’s record set in 2015. Lloyd was 32 years, 354 days old when she scored three times against Japan.
  • The USWNT is now 40-4-6 all-time in the Women’s World Cup, outscoring its opponents 138-37 in 50 games. The 40 wins, 50 games-played and 138 goals scored are all FIFA Women’s World Cup records.
  • The USWNT had nine different goal scorers at this tournament. Only the 2003 Germany team (10) and the 1999 U.S. team (10) have had more at a single WWC.
  • The United States is the only nation to have made it to all eight semifinals of the Women’s World Cup and the only team to advance to five Women’s World Cup Finals. The USA has four Women’s World Cup titles, one second-place finish and two third-place finishes.

Organizaciones Comunitarias y Religiosas llaman a Refugiados

Bereavision TV Los Angeles, CA.- La administración del presidente Trump redujo el número de los refugiados con un comunicado difundido el 24 de septiembre del 2018. En la actualidad por medio de organizaciones religiosas, civiles y comunitarias este pasado sábado 3 de agosto en a escalinata sur del “City Hall” de Los Angeles se reunieron para hacer un llamado a los refugiados y al gobierno local sobre la problemática que enfrentan los refugiados en este momento.

“La administración Trump quiere reducir el numero de refugiados que son aceptados cada año a nivel federal a cero(0), las organizaciones vinieron para hacer conciencia al gobierno local y se puedan recibir fondos del estado que pueden ayudar a mantener las puertas abiertas para los refugiados. Entre otras cosas el presidente tiene el poder de determinar el numero de refugiados. Cuando se fue Obama dejo el número en hasta 110,000 refugiados y actualmente el numero ha bajado a 30,000 y lo que quiere la administración Trump es reducir esta cifra a cero”, afirmó Apolonio Morales Director Politico de CHIRLA quien nos habló de las peticiones que se dieron a conocer en esta rueda de prensa.

De acuerdo al reporte difundido por el Departamento de Estado de los Estados Unidos el 24 de Septiembre de 2018 en su introducción redacta el plan del presidente es reducir a 30,000 el numero de los refugiados en el año fiscal 2019.

(Pursuant to Section 207(d) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), the President proposes resettling up to 30,000 refugees in the United States in Fiscal Year (FY) 2019.)
