Feb 28, 2020

(CDMX). La jefa de Gobierno de la Ciudad de México, Claudia Sheinbaum Pardo, junto a la secretaria de Salud local, Oliva López Arellano, por medio de un mensaje pidieron la calma entre los ciudadanos ante la llegada del Covid-19.

Informaron que a partir de las alertas que ha emitido la Organización Mundial de la Salud se han intensificado los trabajos de monitoreo y la vigilancia epidemiológica funciona a nivel nacional.

“La Secretaría de Salud de la Ciudad de México a cargo de Oliva, en coordinación con el Gobierno federal y la comunidad científica internacional intensificó las acciones de vigilancia epidemiológica”.

López Arellano indicó que se cuenta con equipos de sanidad internacional en las dos terminales del Aeropuerto de la Ciudad de México, monitoreando tanto a la tripulación, como a los pasajeros.

Al detectarse algún caso sospechoso, se aisla a la persona y a los que estuvieron en contacto para tomar muestras y analizar.

“La probabilidad de que haya casos en México y en la ciudad es alta, hay que decirlo, no hay que tener miedo a decir la verdad; lo importante es mantener la calma, estar informados todos los días”.

Pidió la funcionaria no propagar rumores, ni fake news, y recordó a la ciudadanía las medidas de prevención sanitarias para evitar contagios.

No se cerrarán escuelas ni centros de trabajo por llegada de coronavirus a México

Feb 28, 2020

(CDMX). Ante la llegada del coronavirus a territorio capitalino, el subsecretario de Salud, Hugo López-Gatell, aseguró que no habrá cierre de escuelas o centros de trabajo.

Indicó que México se encuentra en escenario uno, es decir, hay una transmisión localizada y no generalizada, lo que descarta este procedimiento de prevención.

“No hay ninguna indicación porque no hay una razón científica o técnica de salud pública para cerrar escuelas, cerrar trabajo, tener ausentismo laboral justificado de manera generalizada, no hay razón alguna hasta ese momento. Estamos en escenario uno y eso es transmisión localizada en torno a los contactos; estamos hablando de decenas de casos que pudieran haber alrededor de los casos y no hay transmisión generalizada”.

Reiteró el presidente Andrés Manuel López Obrador que el Covid-19 no es equivalente a la influenza y el país está preparado para atender el virus, por lo que pide evitar amarillismo y pánico entre los ciudadanos.

“El doctor Hugo López-Gatell va a estar constantemente informando para evitar, lo digo con toda claridad, que haya amarillismo, que no haya exageraciones para que haya una psicósis colectiva, de miedo, de temor, porque hay quienes no actúan con ética y vuelan”.

Pena de muerte no soluciona los problemas de inseguridad en México: Reyes Carmona

Feb 28, 2020
  • Debemos ir por fortalecer el sistema de justicia mexicano, por la aplicación de penas más severas para que la ciudadanía pueda depositar su confianza al garantizarles seguridad y protección
  • Nuestro país se ha sumado a pactos internacionales en materia de derechos humanos, los cuales no pueden ser violados al aceptar esta medida

(CDMX). El diputado federal, Emmanuel Reyes Carmona, se manifestó en contra de la iniciativa presentada por diputados del Partido Verde la cuál fue apoyada por algunos legisladores de morena, la propuesta va en relación de aplicar la pena de muerte en México a los responsables de violaciones, feminicidio y homicidio doloso.

‘’Aunque el partido verde es aliado de la 4T, esto no significa que se comparta el tema, pues como legisladores son libres de suscribirse a cualquier iniciativa, lo mismo aplica para el caso de los diputados morenistas que secundaron dicha propuesta’’, aclaró.

El legislador precisó que el tema de la pena de muerte no está dentro de la agenda legislativa que propone el grupo parlamentario de morena en San Lázaro, toda vez que en los análisis que se han hecho dentro de la bancada concuerdan que esta determinación no sería la solución para contrarrestar delitos graves que agobian a la sociedad mexicana.

‘’México lo que necesita es un sistema de justicia más eficiente, podríamos hablar de penas más severas y seguir atacando la corrupción en el ámbito judicial, para lograr que el acceso de justica y la aplicación de las leyes garantice seguridad y protección a todos los mexicanos’’, declaró.

Reyes Carmona dijo que según datos del Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Geografía (INEGI), 4 de cada 10 mexicanos, desconfían de los jueces y policía ministerial, sin embargo, se está trabajando para que el Poder Judicial sea funcional y brinde servicios de alta calidad en el que la ciudadanía pueda depositar su confianza.

El morenista guanajuatense, respaldó al presidente López Obrador en el rechazo a la pena de muerte y se sumó a lo mencionado por el titular del ejecutivo federal en el que la aplicación de justicia traerá como fruto la paz y la tranquilidad, pero además resaltó como fundamental el respetar los tratados internacionales en materia de Derechos Humanos que México ha firmado y que serían violados al aplicar la pena de muerte.

The scorecards read 77-74, 76-75 and 75-76. In the ShoBox co-main event, 2016 Olympian and undefeated super lightweight prospect Richardson Hitchins (10-0, 5 KOs) takes on Rhode Island’s Nick DeLomba (16-2, 5 KOs) in a 10-round bout. Once-beaten Las Vegas native Kevin Newman II (11-1-1, 6 KOs) faces Albania’s Genc Pllana (7-1-1, 4 KOs) in a 10-round super middleweight matchup to open the telecast.Tickets for the Mayweather Promotions’ Sin City Showdown start at $25 and can be purchased at: https://mayweatherpromotions.com/events/. Barry Tompkins will call the action from ringside with boxing historian Steve Farhood and former world champion Raul Marquez serving as expert analysts.

It’s good that I’m getting him a second time because I’m going to show that it’s not even going to be close. I could see how some people thought it was a close fight the first time, but it won’t be close this time. He got some clean shots on me, but he never hurt me. I dropped him early. If I didn’t do that, it could have been a different story. “I’m going to get him out of there. I think it’s going to be an exciting fight. I had unleaded gas the last time around, but I now have premium gas in the tank. “He got me with one body shot. But there was really nothing up top that hurt me. With our styles, it’s always going to be the matador vs. the bull. The slugger vs. the boxer. I think this will be a similar fight as the last fight, but I’m going to be more effective this time. I’m going to hunt him. I’m a bounty hunter. “I don’t really want to leave it to the judges. There will be a time in the fight where I’m going to hurt him. When I do, I have to assess my energy and how he takes it. From there, I will decide to apply pressure or just keep boxing him and beating him. “I want anybody at 140. I want the top guys: Josh Taylor, Regis Prograis. But now, to be honest, I really want Malik Hawkins. Now it’s personal. He can fight for a tall guy. He can fight in the pocket but Darwin Price was beating him until his leg gave out. I want him next.” Sanjarbek Rakhmanov “I heard about the new opponent one week ago. I’ve been wanting this rematch forever. I one hundred percent feel that I won that fight. I was dominating for five or six rounds. I’m so happy that this will be a 10-round fight. The more rounds I have, the better my chance. We had him last time, and I let him off the hook. That was a mistake and I won’t let him off the hook this time. “I was waiting too much in the first few rounds. I started too slow. This time, I will start fast. I give him respect for taking the rematch. I’m very motivated. I want to avenge the loss. I want to make everybody know that the judges made a mistake the first time. There is a lot on the line and this win will open many doors for me. “I am more excited for this fight than for the first fight. This is my second time fighting on SHOWTIME and this is the main event. It’s a huge opportunity for me. “I started so slow in the last fight. It wasn’t until I was knocked down until I woke up and realized that I was in a real fight. That’s when I started fighting my fight and started dominating. But it was really my own fault. The punch didn’t hurt me, but it woke me up. I think Hunter is a good fighter. He can take a punch. I hurt him with a couple body shots. I can’t wait for Friday night to show the world I am the better fighter.” Richardson Hitchins “I was pretty disappointed in the last few rounds in my last fight against Kevin Johnson. He capitalized on some mistakes I made, specifically with my left hand being down. I knew if I wanted to get better, that was just something I had to go back home and adjust on. That shouldn’t happen again. I think it was a good learning experience for me. It’s better that it happened early in my career so that I can learn from it. “It wasn’t just my hand speed that won me the fight. I think I was smarter than him. I got hit with a couple right hands but I got the win. I went back and did my homework. Andre Ward is one of my favorite fighters and he got hurt early on in his career. He adjusted from that and that’s what I plan to do. “I think you’re going to see a different Richardson Hitchins this fight. Based on DeLomba’s style and me studying the sport, I don’t think he has the defense that my last opponent had. His only chance is to come forward and make this a dog fight. It’s hard to make it a dog fight with me. I feel like I’m going to shine tomorrow. “I think my last fight was a statement. That kid could fight. I may not have been at my best, but I fought a really good fighter. Even Floyd [Mayweather] was surprised that I took that fight, because he told me that kid could really fight. After the fight, I asked Floyd what I could do better. He just told me that there were some technical things I could switch up, but he said that both of us could really fight. I give so much respect to Kevin Johnson. I was able to learn a lot from that match. He’s only lost to two Olympians, so that says a lot about him. “I think I have a good inside game, but in a fight I’m more comfortable out-boxing you. It fits my skillset more. If I don’t have to get in a brawl, I’m not going to. Eventually, I’m going to have to show that I can do it.”  Nick DeLomba “I feel good at 140 pounds. I’ve even fought at 137 before. I’m comfortable at lighter weights. I fought tough fights coming out the gates. I beat guys as the ‘B side’ fighter. I’ve taken the tough road. I’ve always wanted to fight on SHOWTIME. I made it to Vegas. I made it to SHOWTIME. It’s an honor to have this opportunity. There’s definitely a sense of urgency with this fight. This is make-or-break. “I just need to fight my fight. I need to stay busy and give him trouble. Give him different angles. I’m tough to figure out. I just need to be that awkward fighter that he hasn’t seen yet. He’s fought on SHOWTIME before. He’s the prospect. I’m the guy being brought in to fight him. I need to show that I’m more than just a stepping stone for him. He’s never had to dig deep. I want to make him dig deep. I know my role, and I’m here to play spoiler. “I’m proven. I’m tested. We’re going to test him. I have more fights. I have the experience. I think that is what will give me the advantage Friday night.” Kevin Newman II “You guys saw the real me the last time I was on ShoBox. As soon as I came out, I came out stepping to him and popping the jab. It was a totally different fight from the first time and I could tell immediately once he started backing up. Throughout the whole training camp, I knew I had to go and right my wrong. The first time I lost to him, I called Leonard Ellerbe immediately and told him I wanted the rematch. It took a couple years, but I was able to right that wrong. “To this day, so many people tell me I look like Roy Jones in the way that I fight. I don’t want to be Roy Jones. I want to take certain things from his game and implement them into mine, but I want to be my own fighter. Who better than the man himself to bring in and help me? The same thing with Floyd Mayweather. I always watched him and I took a lot from his game that I liked, especially defensively. I still have more work cut out for me if I want to be mentioned in the same sentence as him. But in terms of talent, people see what they see. I take so much from Roy Jones. Sometimes, when I put the tassels on my boots, I feel like I’m him. He’s my idol. Everything he says to me is gold to me. “I want to bring back the excitement to boxing. Even if you’re not knocking out everybody like Deontay Wilder or Tank Davis, I still want people to leave saying that I put on a show. There’s a lot of work to be done, but we’re going to get it done. “I just need to stay focused and keep winning. I need to keep showing my talent and the skills that I have. I still feel like there’s another 60 percent that people haven’t seen from me. Roy Jones and the rest of my team are bringing that out of me. I just want to keep going out there and putting on a show and everything else will fall into place. “He has an awkward, unorthodox style. But this is boxing, you have to go out there and be able to adjust. We have a great game plan. We’ve been working on that game plan in the gym so I’m going to go out there and do exactly what my team tells me. There’s not a guy in the division with faster hands than me. He won’t be able to handle that.” Genc Pllana “I had about two weeks’ notice for this fight. But I was ready for a March 14 fight, so I’m in good shape and right on weight. People think that I’m going to be an easy opponent based on my style, but I think I’m a really frustrating guy to fight. “I’m already a confident fighter, and my last fight against Henderson gave me even more confidence. I think I could have stopped him in my last fight. Honestly, confidence has never been an issue for me. I believe I’ll be the first Albanian world champion. I believe I’d beat Roy Jones in his prime, so that really doesn’t bother me at all. If he thinks that’s going to bother me, he has another thing coming. “I don’t care who I’m fighting, or who’s in the other guy’s corner. In the ring, it’s me vs. him. That’s all that matters. I think this will be a coming out party for me. After Friday night, fight fans will be saying that ‘The Sexy Albanian’ really is sexy.”

We are currently under a boil water notice and you will be notified when it is rescinded.  

A City of Houston contractor was doing exploratory work for a City of Houston water line project in east Houston near 610 and Clinton Drive. When soil was moved from the line, the 96-inch line burst.Food service establishments without water or flushing toilets must cease operation. The Houston Health Department has dispatched sanitarians to the area.I want to thank our first responders for acting quickly and getting drivers to safety. Thankfully, no water entered any homes in the affected area.

Today’s water line break is a reminder of the aging infrastructure that Houston and other major cities face as we work to make improvements each day.”

TOP PROSPECT KEITH HUNTER AND FIVE OTHER SHOBOX

TOP PROSPECT KEITH HUNTER AND FIVE OTHER SHOBOX: THE NEW GENERATION FIGHTERS WORK OUT IN FRONT OF LAS VEGAS MEDIA IN ADVANCE OF TRIPLEHEADER Rising Stars Richardson Hitchins and Kevin Newman II Ready For Action Friday, February 28 From Sam’s Town Live in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS – February 27, 2020 – Boxing Hall of Famer Roy Jones Jr. leaned into the ropes and intently watched his pupil, rising once-beaten prospect and Las Vegas native Kevin Newman II run through a spirited 30-minute media workout on Thursday at Mayweather Boxing Club. Newman (11-1-1, 6 KOs) is preparing to open Friday night’s ShoBox: The New Generation telecast when he faces Albania’s Genc Pllana (7-1-1, 4 KOs) in a 10-round super middleweight matchup live on SHOWTIME (10:45 p.m. ET/PT) from Sam’s Town Live in Las Vegas. In the main event, undefeated rising prospect Keith Hunter will face talented Sanjarbek Rakhmanov in a rematch in a 10-round super lightweight bout. Hunter (11-0, 7 KOs) and Rakhmanov (12-2-1, 6 KOs) first met on February 5, 2019, in an eight-round welterweight contest that resulted in a narrow-split decision victory for Hunter. In the ShoBox co-main event, 2016 Olympian and undefeated super lightweight prospect Richardson Hitchins (10-0, 5 KOs) takes on Rhode Island’s Nick DeLomba (16-2, 5 KOs) in a 10-round bout. “Avenging the only loss of his career says a lot about Kevin Newman,” said the former four-division world champion and expert boxing commentator Jones, who serves as one of Newman’s trainers and mentors. “He’s not afraid of nothing or nobody and he wants to go and do his thing the right way. He wants to makes sure there’s no blemishes on his record. The loss, if you go back and avenge that loss, then that’s no blemish. You lost but you went back and beat him. You proved that it was just a bad night. Jones continued: “He cares about what people think about him. He cares about his own career because he wants to keep it clean, and he did that. A great winner has to be a great loser. He was a great loser by coming back and proving exactly what he said was wrong. He said, ‘I’m not making any excuses, he got me, but he won’t get me again. When I get prepared, I’m going to go back and do it the right way.’ And that’s exactly what he did. That’s how you’re supposed to lose gracefully. “I believe Kevin can go on to be a world champion because he has all the physical attributes. He’s got to have a little more knowledge to go along with those physical attributes and he’ll be a monster. He has great hand speed. He’s very explosive. Good reflexes. Good defensive skills. A few little technical adjustments, and he’ll be anything he wants to be.” Here is what the fighters had to say on Thursday from Mayweather Boxing Club: KEITH HUNTER: “I was born and raised here and this is the mecca of boxing, they say. So with that being said, me coming from Vegas, it’s electric because I have a lot of friends here. They are out here supporting me and they really want to see a young kid from Vegas who comes from not the best area succeed. The love is electric here. “We’re locked in. This is going to be a good statement. It’s still going to be another step-up even though I already got rid of this guy. So now I have to do it in a better fashion. “I was preparing for Malik Hawkins so I was really trying to train for a tall guy. But you have to make adjustments and you have to stay in the present moment, so for this camp I just made sure I had premium gas in my tank. I already know my opponent pretty well, but I went back and watched our first fight. I saw that he was leaping in a lot and I was giving him too much, so this time I’m going to make sure he pays every time he leaps in.” SANJARBEK RAKHMANOV: “Training camp was very great and smart. I’m very excited for this rematch. For me this fight is better than a title fight. I want to show Friday night what I’ve been working on. “I understand my little mistakes and my opponent’s mistakes and that’s what I’ve been working on during my whole training camp. I got a lot of good sparring this camp with Jessie Vargas and a couple more undefeated fighters. “Fans can expect to see a war on Friday night. For fans it’s a rematch, but to me it’s different. This time it’ll be a much smarter fight. “I’m more excited for this fight than the first fight because I want to redeem myself and climb the rankings after a win on Friday night.” RICHARDSON HITCHINS “My training camp was great. We had a tremendous training camp. I’m really not sure what to expect from my opponent. He only has a few choices: He can either come and put pressure on me, that’s not going to work, or he can try to outbox me and that’s not going to work either. He’s got to pick his poison. “Every show is important, whether it’s on TV or not. I’m definitely looking for the knockout. If it comes, it comes. I can’t predict a specific round, but I really can’t see him going past five with me.” NICK DeLOMBA: “I had one of the best camps I’ve ever had. I had a new strength and conditioning coach brought onto the team. He did a phenomenal job with me. I got great work from both my head coach and my assistant coach. We trained hard. We fought smart. We’re ready. “I want to give a big shout out and thank you to my sparring partners, Jermaine Ortiz from Worcester and Rashidi Ellis from Somerville, Mass. They were my two main sparring partners and they helped me a lot this camp and got me ready for this fight. “Hitchins is a tough opponent. He’s up-and-coming, he’s 10-0. He’s one of those prospects that are coming up and they are testing him. I am here to put him to the test and see exactly what type of fighter he is. I’m making my debut on SHOWTIME so it’s really important for me to look good. I’ve fought on some streaming services before but nothing as big as ShoBox, so it’s an honor for me and something I’ve wanted to do my whole career. I’m going to go out there, do my best and show that I can take it to that next level.” KEVIN NEWMAN II: “I feel good. Just sharpening the tools and working on little game plan stuff. Just making sure everything is in order and the game plan is all worked out. I know my opponent is tall, kind of lanky but at the end of the day the skills pay the bills. “I don’t feed into all the favored stuff. I mean, that guy has trained just like me for this. I don’t feed into that. I’m just going to try and come as prepared as I can and not focus on anything else.” GENC PLLANA: “Training camp has been great, and we are definitely ready for 10 hard rounds. In preparation for this fight I ran a lot more than usual. “My keys to victory for this fight are to walk him down with my jab and make him feel my right hand. “It feels good to fight for the first time on SHOWTIME so that people can see how good I can fight. It’s a big platform, but I feel right at home and where I belong.” LEONARD ELLERBE, Mayweather Promotions CEO “Roy [Jones] has had a tremendous influence on Kevin Newman. Roy and Floyd Mayweather were his favorite fighters growing up and you can see where he’s patterned his style a lot after Roy. “It’s a great thing, picking up little nuggets from an all-time great like Roy Jones is a dream come true. He’s been very positive and he’s learned a lot from him. I look to see some of the new things he’s picked up on Friday night. “It’s a terrific card. I really enjoy these smaller cards than the bigger cards because it’s fun watching these fighters develop in the early stages of their career and watching them grow along the way. “It’s a tremendous platform to develop your young fighters as far as the exposure that they’re getting, it’s phenomenal. I continue to tell our guys that these opportunities don’t come to you, they have to make the most of these opportunities. “Each fighter and every fighter has something to prove to themselves and it’s a good opportunity to step-up and develop more fans.” Barry Tompkins will call the action from ringside with boxing historian Steve Farhood and former world champion Raul Marquez serving as expert analysts. The executive producer is Gordon Hall with Richard Gaughan producing and Rick Phillips directing.

El presidente de la FIFA anuncia su visión para el período hasta 2023

Feb 28, 2020

El día del cuarto aniversario de su elección como Presidente de la FIFA, Gianni Infantino presentó la Visión 2020-2023: por un fútbol verdaderamente global, su plan de acción para la organización en el transcurso de los próximos años.

“Este documento configura un plan para modernizar el mundo del fútbol y hacerlo cada vez más inclusivo y marcar el camino hacia el día en que contemos al menos con 50 selecciones y otros tantos clubes de todos los continentes en el máximo nivel competitivo”, comentó Gianni Infantino.

La Visión 2020-2023: por un fútbol verdaderamente global es una hoja de ruta para que la FIFA se vuelque en su objetivo de que el fútbol sea verdaderamente global mientras navega las aguas de un mundo en constante cambio. La visión gira en torno a once objetivos clave:

1.  Modernizar el marco regulador futbolístico

2.  Acrecentar los ingresos de manera sostenible para seguir reinvirtiendo en fútbol

3.  Aumentar la eficiencia y eficacia de la organización

4.  Garantizar el éxito de nuestras competiciones más emblemáticas

5.  Globalizar nuestras competiciones

6.  Incrementar la competitividad a escala global

7.  Maximizar nuestra influencia en el desarrollo global del fútbol

8.  Acelerar el crecimiento del fútbol femenino

9.  Aprovechar la tecnología en el fútbol

10.  Salvaguardar valores positivos en el fútbol

11.  Influir en la sociedad gracias al poder del fútbol

Cada uno de estos objetivos descansa en cuatro pilares que van desde organizar torneos sustentables a generar más oportunidades para que las federaciones miembro alberguen torneos de la FIFA, pasando por crear experiencias únicas para los aficionados y las audiencias globales, y por luchar contra el racismo y el resto de formas que adopta la discriminación.

La Visión 2020-2023: por un fútbol verdaderamente global está disponible en es.FIFA.com/Vision2020-2023.

LOS ANGELES (Feb. 25, 2020): Vergil Ortiz Jr. (15-0, 15 KOs) and Samuel Vargas (31-5-2, 14 KOs) hosted a press conference today ahead of their 12-round fight for the WBA Gold Welterweight Title. Undercard fighters from the event also participated in the presser. The fight will take place on Saturday, Mar. 28, 2020 at the “Fabulous” Forum in Inglewood, Calif. and will be streamed live exclusively on DAZN.
Below is what fighters had to say at today’s press conference: VERGIL ORTIZ JR., WBA Gold Welterweight Champion:“I’m thankful to have one of the best promotors in the world. We’re a big family, and I’m very proud to be a part of Golden Boy Promotions. I train for every fight like I’m training for a world title. I don’t think I’m the most talented fighter in the room, but I do know that I work the hardest in the game right now.” SAMUEL VARGAS, Welterweight Contender:“I’m open to fighting everyone. I’ve fought a lot of talented boxers have had great experience throughout the years. I’m confident and I’m ready. I’ve been training very well, and I’m excited for this fight. A huge shout out to my fans in Canada and Columbia who will be watching and supporting me.” AZAT HOVHANNISYAN, Super Bantamweight Contender:“I’m as ready for any champion. I’m in the best shape and have the best trainer. I can’t wait to show everyone a wonderful fight on March 28.”
SENIESA ESTRADA, WBC Silver Light Flyweight Champion:“This is going to be my fifth time at the Forum, but this time it’s going to be very different. The last four times that I fought at this venue. I didn’t have promoter. I wasn’t making any money and I wanted to give up on my dreams. I honestly didn’t think I could make it as a boxer. This time coming back to the Forum, I’m at the best place in my career right now, physically, mentally and emotionally. I’m ready for a great fight.”
ERIC GOMEZ, President of Golden Boy:“There’s a lot of great boxing history at the forum. A lot of famous world champions have fought at this venue, including Oscar De La Hoya, who made his debut back in 1992. This is a great card and all these fights are going to be exciting, especially Vergil Ortiz Jr., who is no longer a prospect but now a contender. He has captivated the world of boxing, and I hope for him to win a world title this year. Vergil has proved himself in the ring, but make no mistake Samuel Vargas is a dangerous fighter. Vergil needs to be able to beat a fighter like Vargas. This is a big test for Vergil. Vargas is going to challenge him, but this is what he needs to go through to win a world title.
