El Popo despertó a los poblanos; semáforo de alerta se encuentra en Amarillo Fase 2

Jan 9, 2020

(BEREAVISION TV, MX). La madrugada del jueves el volcán Popocatépetl arrojó material incandescente a una altura de 3 kilometros de altura, por lo que autoridades emitieron recomendaciones para evitar riesgos.

El Centro Nacional de Prevención de Desastres compartió una imagen en la que se ve a Don Goyo expulsando lava, la cual se ve espéctacular, aunque Protección Civil pidió a los pobladores no acercarse a la zona.

El contenido moderado de ceniza logró llegar a parte del Estado de México; asimismo, se indicó cubrirse con cubrebocas, utilizar lentes de armazón y evitar los de contacto, así como cerrar ventanas.

La actividad de Don Goyo puede ser monitoreada a través de Webcams de México y dar seguimiento de las recomendaciones, en caso de que cambie el semáforo de alerta.

Preparan a la CDMX para macrosimulacro

Jan 9, 2020

(CDMX). En conferencia de prensa, el gobierno capitalino anunció el protocolo del simulacro que se realizará el próximo 20 de enero a las 11 de la mañana, que será el primero de tres, a llevarse a cabo en este año.

“Una propuesta de la jefa de Gobierno fue tener tres simulacros; teníamos un macrosimulacro, a propuesta de la jefa de Gobierno ahora tendremos tres. Eso convierte a México en uno de los pocos países que tienen macrosimulacros institucionalizados en fechas específicas. Ya lo ha dicho ella, uno el 20 de enero, el segundo en el mes de mayo y el tercero en el mes de septiembre”, indicó

Con el propósito de prevenir mayores riesgos frente a desastres naturales de este tipo, se harán evacuaciones masivas de inmuebles.

Con la participación del Centro de Comando, Control, Cómputo, Comunicaciones y Contacto Ciudadano (C5) activará 12 mil 411 altavoces que se encuentran ubicados a lo largo de la urbe.

Asimismo, participará la Cruz Roja, el Escuadrón de Rescate y Urgencias Médicas (ERUM), la Secretaría de Seguridad y Protección Ciudadana; así como Locatel y la Agencia Digital de Innovación Pública.

“En el momento en que suena la alarma sísmica, en este caso como simulacro y en el caso de que ocurriera un sismo, ya están divididas las tareas no solamente por institución, sino también en las alcaldías”, indicó Sheinbaum.

Por su parte, la jefa de Gobierno de la Ciudad de México, exhortó a los capitalinos a tomar con seriedad el protocolo, para lograr una mayor preparación.

“Invitamos a la ciudadanía a que se tomé en serio estos simulacros. Como dice el lema de la Secretaría de Protección Civil, la prevención es nuestra fuerza, es muy importante estas acciones preventivas que nos permitan frente a un sismo estar preparados ciudadanía y gobierno”, dijo.

Design by @heczar Hector De La Cruz(January 9, 2020 – Las Vegas, NV) :  Trainer Jorge Capetillo, owner of Capetillo & TM Boxing Gym is always one to give the shirt off his back. Genuinely a giving person along with his wife and children. When Capetillo decided to open a gym in Vegas, he never imagined the financial hardship toll it would take. Many kids can’t afford a membership or need discounts unfortunately. He is feeling the effects of all this now, and while talking to his fighter, Tyson Fury, the lineal Champion had a great idea. Fury isn’t doing any interviews or appearances until fight week, but out of the goodness of his heart, he offered to do a Meet & Greet at Capetillo’s gym to see if it would help bring in memberships or sponsorships. A very grateful Capetillo said, “Yes! Great idea!” 
The EXCLUSIVE and FREE Meet & Greet will take place this Saturday, January 11, 2020 at 12:00pm at Capetillo & TM Boxing Gym located at, 3430 E. Tropicana Ave., Suite 61, Las Vegas, NV 89121. We kindly as media to contact Nancy Rodriguez at Nancyr505@gmail.com as there will be limited Media access. 
The purpose of this Meet & Greet is to showcase the Boxing Gym where Tyson Fury will be in training camp ahead of his fight against Deontay Wilder, February 22, 2020 at the MGM Grand. This Boxing gym is a huge part of the community and is in need of member and/or sponsorships. Fury wants to help by giving the gym the exposure it deserves for getting the kids off the streets and teaching them Boxing skills. We hope sponsors will be interested in putting up a banner in the gym in exchange of sponsorship.

SAN ANTONIO (Jan. 8, 2020): Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan (30-3, 21 KOs) hosted a media workout today at Boxers and Brawlers Boxing Club ahead of his 12-round middleweight fight against Jaime Munguia (34-0, 27 KOs) at The Alamodome. The event will take place Saturday, Jan. 11 at The Alamodome in San Antonio, TX and will be streamed live exclusively on DAZN.  O’Sullivan was joined by undercard fighters Franchon Crews-Dezurn (6-1, 2 KOs), Hector Tanajara Jr. (18-0, 5 KOs), Joshua Franco (15-1-2, 7 KOs), Tristan Kalkreuth (3-0, 2 KOs), George Rincon (9-0, 6 KOs), Hector Valdez (11-0, 7 KOs) and James Wilkins (8-1, 6 KOs). Below is what the fighters had to say at today’s workout: GARY ‘SPIKE’ O’SULLIVAN, Middleweight Contender:“I’m ready for war. Jaime Munguia is an undefeated champion and he’s also young. He has become a great Mexican warrior and I expect nothing less from him. I truly respect him, and I know he respects me as well. Hopefully we’re going to be able to put on a great fight for the audience on Saturday. I believe I have the ability to beat anybody and always come up with a win. It’s all about your mindset”
“I come prepared. I’m a hard worker and I’m going to show it off on Saturday night. Whenever I’m fighting, I try to put my heart on it. This is no different for me. I’ve received great support from my team, and I respect their time and their sacrifices.”
“I’m excited to be in San Antonio once again. I didn’t have the opportunity to get around the city the last time I came. So far, I think it is a beautiful place. I had the chance to visit The Alamodome stadium last night and I’m expecting to see much more this time.” FRANCHON CREWS-DEZURN, WBC & WBO Super Middleweight World Champion:“Training camp has been amazing; my team has been amazing. My husband has been my constant partner. I’m feeling good; I’m peaking at the right time.” “I want my opponent to come in confident, I want her to bring her best because I’m going to bring my best. One of my gifts is being able to adapt and I’m going to adapt to whatever is in front of me. I hope she underestimates me because I’m going to make her eat every word she ever said about me. I’m at a better place than I was three years ago, two years ago, one year ago, and I’m living in the moment. And I don’t mix personal with business. I’m going to put up a show and she is going to get beaten.”  “I just want to say thank you to my fans for the support, thank you for the messages. The world is in a crazy place right now, so take your mind off of that and enjoy a good show because I’m going to fight for you. Saturday night I’m going to fight for the world” HECTOR TANAJARA JR., USNBC Lightweight Champion:“I’m excited to be back in my hometown and see a lot of familiar faces. It makes me feel more relaxed and motivated to come out victorious on Saturday. Staying with my family in my hometown helps me a lot to stay focused and grounded. My dad has been a great support for me. He’s has helped me to keep everything one step at a time. I’m excited to show him and my hometown what I can do, especially with a high-caliber fighter.” “My goal is to become a complete fighter. Burgos is a very tough opponent. He has had multiple great fights in the past. He’s a high-level boxer and my level just goes up higher when I’m fighting against opponents like him. I’m ready to show the world what I can give on the ring and that I’m going to fight my fight and not his fight.” JOSHUA FRANCO, Flyweight Contender:“I feel very excited. I finally have the chance to put on a show in front of my hometown. It’s a great feeling. Being able to represent my town and feeling that great support coming from my own people.”
“I had a strong training camp, but I feel really solid. I’m just ready to get on the ring and fight. I have a tough opponent on Saturday. He’s a good boxer; he comes with everything. He only has two losses, so this means he’s going into the ring with a very positive and strong mindset and I know he won’t just give up the fight.” TRISTAN KALKREUTH, Light Heavyweight Prospect:“I feel great for this fight. I pushed myself through every training camp as hard as I could. There’s always room to work harder and I feel that’s what I did on this camp. I feel slim and strong.”
“It’s definitely going to be a hard fight since my opponent is 6’7, but I believe I’m ready to give it all on the ring and fight. It’s going to be a great experience and an opportunity to learn more. As a professional boxer, I hope to continue learning from other great boxers like Canelo. Just keep the hard work going.” GEORGE RINCON, Super Lightweight Prospect:“I’m feeling good, ready and focused for fight night. I’m looking forward to this upcoming fight and to start the year strong. I’ve been working hard on keeping the basics going, so I’m ready to box and do my thing. I have to be patient and make sure I look good and show my talent. That’s the plan, to start this year strong and show what I can do. Once I find that timing and my rhythm going, it will be a short night.” “We have some tough fighters here in Texas. Little by little Texas is getting more attention and hopefully, you’ll remember the Rincon Brothers as part of boxing history here. We are part of the major talent we have here in the state.” HECTOR VALDEZ, Super Bantamweight Prospect:“I feel excited and comfortable for the fight. I had a good training camp; my coach is one of the best coaches. I also had a camp at the RGBA with Vergil by my side. I feel strong, good and I’m ready to fight.”
“This fight is going to be a good learning experience for me. I want to go into the later rounds and see what I can overcome. If there’s an opportunity to take a good shot, I’ll take it.” JAMES WILKINS, Super Featherweight Prospect:“Training camp was great. This is my second camp in Texas, and I love the atmosphere. I’m from New York, so I love the vibe here in Texas. I’ve been preparing good with coach Roger, and I have been working hard on my strength and conditioning too.” “For fight night, I’m looking forward to fighting and be smart and be intelligent, and if the knockout comes, I’ll get him out of there. This is boxing, so I don’t sleep on nobody, I take everything seriously and I know when the opportunity presents itself, I will take my opponent out of the ring.” Munguia vs. O’Sullivan is a 12-round fight for the WBO International Middleweight Title presented by Golden Boy in association with Zanfer Promotions and Murphy’s Boxing.

Boxing and Business Icon George Foreman named Grand Marshal for the 42nd Annual “Original” Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Parade

Jan 9, 2020
Boxing and Business Icon George Foreman named Grand Marshal for the 42nd Annual “Original” Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Parade
HOUSTON – Mayor Sylvester Turner and The Black Heritage Society  have announced that Olympic gold medalist and two-time World Heavyweight Champion George Foreman will join the 42nd Annual “Original” Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Parade as the Grand Marshal.


The downtown celebration will take place on Monday, January 20, 2020 starting at Smith and Lamar streets, from 10 a.m. to noon. The Mayor’s Office of Special Events (MOSE) will co-produce the event.
 
 “As a Texas native, and having grown up right here in Houston, it’s an honor and privilege to be named the Grand Marshal of The Original MLK Day Parade,” said Foreman. “What’s special is that right here in Houston, this parade was the first one to be held in the entire country 42 years ago. I’m proud of our history in this great city and I look forward to seeing us all come together in the name of love, peace and all that Dr. King stood for.”
 
Foreman was born in Marshall, Texas, but spent his childhood growing up in Houston’s Fifth Ward. He started the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ in northeast Houston in 1980, where he continues to serve as an ordained minister. Several years later, Foreman founded the George Foreman Youth and Community Center (GYFC), using athletics to keep local kids off the street and out of trouble. For over 30 years, GFYC has been a beacon of hope in Houston serving the underprivileged and helping kids become champions in the ring and in life.
 
During his boxing career, Foreman earned two heavyweight titles — the first in 1973 in a historical match against Joe Frazier. His second heavyweight championship was earned in 1994, where Foreman made boxing history again as the oldest heavyweight champion at the age of 45.
 
Today, he is a globally-recognized entrepreneur, having built the Foreman brand to new heights with products ranging from shoes to the George Foreman Real Time Pain Relief Formula.
 
“George is a Houston icon. His commitment to the Houston community matched with his ability to persevere, embody the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.” said Mayor Sylvester Turner. “I am excited the champ said yes. We could not think of a better Grand Marshal for this historic event.”
 
The Original MLK Day Parade was the very first MLK Day Parade held in the nation after being sanctioned by the King family in 1978 in Houston.
 
The celebration will showcase a variety of marching bands, decorated floats, dance teams, military and ROTC groups, first responders, city and county officials, VIP guest appearances and notable organizations from around the world.

Sponsors include Radio One Houston, AT&T, HEB, United Airlines and more. The Mayor’s Drum Major Award will be presented again to one participating band, recognizing outstanding performance and originality.

Suspect Arrested, Charged in Incident at 1100 Hadley Street

Jan 9, 2020
Suspect Arrested, Charged in Incident at 1100 Hadley Street
Charges have been filed against a suspect arrested in an incident in which a Houston Police officer discharged his duty weapon at an armed suspect at 1100 Hadley Street about 1:05 p.m. on Monday (January 6).

The suspect, Kenneth Dwayne Jefferson (b/m, 30), is charged with aggravated assault against a public servant in the 230th State District Court.  Following treatment at an area hospital, he was booked into the Harris County/City of Houston Joint Processing Center on Tuesday (January 7).  A booking photo of Jefferson is attached to this news release.

Sergeant W. Dunn, who discharged his duty weapon, was not injured in this incident.  Sgt. Dunn was sworn in as an HPD officer in March 1994 and is assigned to the Homicide Division.

HPD Special Investigations Unit Sergeant J. Hekimian and Detectives I. Ulloa, J. Brown, and R. Lujan reported:

Sergeant Dunn was off duty and working an extra job in a parking lot at 1100 Hadley, providing security for employees leaving and returning from lunch.  While there, he observed two males chasing another male into the entrance of the parking lot.  As they reached the gate entrance, Sergeant Dunn observed the two males knock the third male to the ground and then get on top of him.  One of the males then struck the victim on the ground with the barrel of a pistol.  

Sergeant Dunn, in full uniform, exited his vehicle and identified himself as an HPD officer.  At that time, the armed suspect turned and pointed the gun at Sergeant Dunn, who, fearing for his safety, discharged his duty weapon one time.  All three males fled on foot.  Based upon blood on the ground, it was believed the suspect had been struck.  Further investigation led to the location of Jefferson in a Galveston hospital and he was subsequently arrested and charged in this case.

As is customary when a HPD officer discharges his weapon and strikes a suspect, this case is being investigated by the HPD Special Investigations Unit, the HPD Internal Affairs Division and the Harris County District Attorney’s Office.
