Clamoring to get home, India’s migrant workers stone police

first_imgIt happened when officials stopped the workers, who had rented vehicles, from crossing into neighboring Madhaya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh states, because they did not have sufficient paperwork for entry, officials told AFP.Gujarat is one of India’s main industrial hubs, and authorities there were bracing for a logistical “nightmare” after about two million migrant labourers and their families signed up for permission to return home, an official in the state said.They are clamoring to get back to their villages despite the fact that some might have the opportunity to work again. The government is pushing for factories to reopen and has eased some restrictions in the lockdown which will extend for two more weeks from Monday.”Making arrangements for even half of the registered people would be a nightmare for the district administrations,” the official, who asked to remain anonymous, told AFP. More than 2,000 rural migrant workers blocked from returning home pelted Indian police with stones, officials in Gujarat said, as millions more stranded in the state readied to return to villages.Poor migrant workers across the country lost their jobs during the world’s biggest pandemic lockdown, which began in late March to guard against the spread of new coronavirus.Saturday’s clash in western India’s Gujarat is the latest in a spate of such protests across India. In Indore, in the central state of Madhya Pradesh, 14 migrant workers and four others were found by police on Saturday crammed into a cement mixer, local media reported. The migrants had been trying to return home from western Maharashtra state to northern Uttar Pradesh state — a 1,200-kilometre (745-mile) journey.In a vast exodus, many migrant already managed to return to their villages, mostly on foot, but local media reported that some died on their long journeys. Others have been stranded at crowded shelters in cities.The government late last week allowed special cross-border trains and buses to operate to bring those who wanted to return to their villages in other states.Inter-state public transport is still barred.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Indonesia steers clear of COVID-19 resolution ‘politicization’

first_imgForeign Minister Retno LP Marsudi said that Indonesia had thrown its support behind the resolution based on the points that were highlighted, as well as others such as assistance for low and middle income countries and the participation of women.”Indonesia has been very consistent in reminding all members of the importance of cooperation among countries, to set aside differences and not to politicize the meeting and its issues,” Retno said during a virtual briefing in Jakarta on Wednesday.The resolution was first introduced by the European Union and had been negotiated since early April. It was coopted by critics of China later on, particularly by the United States and Australia, that sought to campaign for an independent inquiry that would hold Beijing accountable for the spread of the virus.The SARS-CoV-2 virus, which has spread around the world, infecting nearly 5 million people and killing more than 323,000, is believed to have emerged at a local market selling wild animal meat in the central Chinese city of Wuhan late last year. As Australian officials hailed the unanimous support for the adoption of a resolution at Tuesday’s World Health Assembly (WHA), Indonesia insisted that its backing had nothing to do with the neighbor’s contentious agenda, steering clear of the “politicization” of the global health crisis.At least 135 countries backed the COVID-19 resolution on Tuesday, which, among other things, highlights the importance of strengthening global cooperation and universal, timely and equitable access to affordable health technologies.Read also: US savages WHO as it promises pandemic review, but China pledges $2 billion The move has prompted strong opposition from China and had led nations to distance themselves from the resolution, including Indonesia, according to people familiar with the situation.Read also: Australia and China spat over coronavirus inquiry deepensIn late April, Minister Retno said she had spoken with her Australian counterpart Marise Payne about the matter, but said that Indonesia was more concerned about mitigating the social and economic impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.Acting ministry spokesperson Teuku Faizasyah also insisted it was wrong to mistake Indonesia’s support for the resolution as an indication that it was party to a “coalition” led by Australia that was calling for an independent investigation into the pandemic, as reported by Australian media.“Indonesia was actually a cosponsor of the resolution […] from the beginning. If we look at the resolution as a whole, there is no specific call for an independent investigation or inquiry, but a global effort to foster cooperation to respond to COVID-19,” he told the media in a separate briefing on Wednesday.Faizasyah said Indonesia did not want to politicize a resolution made with good intentions for international cooperation.He also pointed out that because China had also cosponsored the resolution, there were no longer any “contentious matters that could cause debate and politicization”.Leading up to the annual meeting of the WHA on Monday and Tuesday, member countries were knee-deep in negotiations to come up with a draft resolution acceptable to all.Along with dozens of other countries, Indonesia agreed over the weekend to endorse a version of the draft that proposed that an independent “evaluation” be carried out “at the earliest appropriate moment”, and “in consultation with member states” and “using existing mechanisms”.The text does not mention China by name.“This obviously is good enough for China,” said Anggia Valerisha, who teaches international relations at Parahyangan Catholic University.In a speech at the assembly on Monday, Chinese President Xi Jinping said his country supported a comprehensive evaluation of the global response to the pandemic, Reuters reports.The seven-page document was finally adopted by consensus on Tuesday.Hasan Kleib, Indonesia’s permanent representative to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, said Indonesia appreciated the fact that some of its own views, such as ensuring equitable and affordable access to medical supplies, were accommodated in the resolution.Meanwhile, Australia’s Payne said the resolution was “an important part of the conversation we started,” and expressed her gratitude to all the drafters involved in the past few weeks.Read also: Australia welcomes growing support for COVID-19 inquiry at WHO meetingBut Reuters also reported that the Chinese Embassy in Canberra called out Australia’s vindication at the WHA as “a joke”, with a spokesman saying that the global resolution was different from what Australia had proposed. The WHA is the decision-making body of the World Health Organization.Anggia argued that Indonesia showed the most reluctance in echoing Australia’s earlier call because it put the blame on China, which in turn sent a strong message to Canberra.“I think Indonesia’s response at the time was reasonable because it was facing extraordinary COVID-19 problems and had no energy to get dragged into a ‘drama’ with China,” she said.“Indonesia is not equipped to be treated harshly by China, especially in the economic field, at a time when the domestic economy is sluggish.”Read also: World Bank warns pandemic could push 60 million into extreme povertyThe pandemic has proven detrimental to the global economy, with countries teetering at the edge of recession. Some have been emboldened enough to look for a scapegoat, experts say.“On whether Indonesia will openly criticize China, I don’t think [it will],” Anggia said.“Surely Indonesia will try to be very constructive when dealing with China, bearing in mind the two countries have strong economic ties and interests.”Topics :last_img read more

Update on the latest sports

first_img— Pakistan cricket’s celebrated allrounder Shahid Afridi has tested positive for COVID-19. Afridi tweeted Saturday that he had “been feeling unwell since Thursday” and his body “had been aching badly.” He announced that “unfortunately I’m COVID positive” and asked for prayers for a speedy recovery. Afridi quit international cricket in 2017 and has since played in Twenty20 leagues around the world. USOPC-PROTEST PROBLEMSUS Olympic leaders eye change on protests amid wary athletesDENVER (AP) — U.S. Olympic leaders are open to changing a longstanding rule restricting protests at the Olympics. But the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee is also facing backlash from some of its own athletes who feel they’ve been kept out of the loop.The USOPC is forming an athletes’ group to look into racial issues that have been exposed across the country in the aftermath of George Floyd’s killing in Minneapolis. But the committee made the move before consulting with the group that is supposed to represent athletes on the U.S. team. That upset some athletes. Associated Press Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditVIRUS OUTBREAK-SPORTSTV money gives NFL leg up if fans can’t fill team’s coffersUNDATED (AP) — Timing favors the NFL over other major pro sports leagues in trying to figure out how to keep the coronavirus pandemic from wrecking the 2020 season. In other developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic:— Major League Baseball wants an answer by the end of the weekend on its latest pay proposal. According to details obtained by The Associated Press, MLB is offering players 80% of their prorated salaries and a 72-game schedule beginning July 14 in an effort to start the pandemic-delayed season. Players would get 70% of their prorated salaries during the regular season and the rest for completion of the postseason under MLB’s plan.— NASCAR’S Cup Series returns to the track for the third time in eight days Sunday at Homestead-Miami Speedway, this time with a small number of fans in the stands. The 1,000 guests will be almost entirely military members. It’s the 22nd time that NASCAR will run at Homestead, and the first time it’s happening in any month other than November. The weather is expected to be hot and humid.— Major League Baseball and the affiliated minor leagues are shut down but an independent circuit is set to open on July 3 with some fans in the seats. The American Association says six teams will play in three hubs, at least at the start of the season. Minnesota’s St. Paul Saints will play home games at Sioux Falls Stadium along with South Dakota’s Sioux Falls Canaries. Manitoba’s Winnipeg Goldeyes will be based at Newman Outdoor Field with North Dakota’s Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks. The Chicago Dogs will play home games at the Ballpark Commons with the Milwaukee Milkmen.— New Zealand has become one of the first nations in the world to welcome hordes of fans back into a packed sports stadium. More than 20,000 fans poured into a stadium in Dunedin to watch a rugby match Saturday, with no masks or social distancing required. New Zealand removed almost every remaining virus restriction this week after no new cases of COVID-19 were reported in the country for more than three weeks, and all those who contracted the disease were determined to have recovered. The only major restriction that wasn’t lifted was the shutdown of the country’s border. America’s most popular sport has another big advantage if the games are played: TV money.While NFL owners could lose billions collectively with limited capacities in stadiums or no fans at all, the league is well positioned financially because of lucrative media contracts approaching $10 billion in a full 2020 season.Fitch Ratings recently affirmed its “A-plus” credit mark for the NFL and its properties in part because of the league’s media deals. Fitch says the NFL estimates each team’s media revenue at $250 million per season. The number gets bigger later in the contract, and each deal is set to expire in the next two years.So it’s safe to say more than half of the league’s $15 billion in annual revenue comes from the TV deals shared equally among all 32 teams — unlike Major League Baseball, the NBA and NHL.MLB’s attempts to get the baseball season started are being held up in part by a disagreement over how to compensate players in the likelihood that owners will have no fan-related revenue.center_img June 13, 2020 Update on the latest sports Both the athletes and the USOPC are working out their differences. And both agree that attacking the problem of racism and social injustice is more important than internal squabbling.last_img read more

Finding family: Once abandoned, Bromley finds home, companionship en route to Syracuse football stardom

first_imgCourtesy of Frances NimmonsEvery night for the first 13 years of his life, Bromley slept with his grandmother in her queen bed in the Nimmons’ home.As an infant, Bromley worked through his inborn addiction to crack cocaine. He cried constantly and suffered from a testicular hernia until it was surgically removed when he was 6 months old, Frances Nimmons said.Bromley remembers his grandmother filling a tub with cold water and making him sit in it until the pain passed.“I didn’t know what it was,” Bromley said. “I just knew that it hurt.”But any time anything hurt or anything was wrong, Grandma was there. She bought Bromley his first basketball hoop and basketball, football and sneakers. She inspected his wardrobe each morning, and made sure his hair never grew too long.Kay Frances Jones had been given just one son out of her four children. And he went to jail for murder.Bromley was her second chance.“They used to do everything together,” Nimmons said. “She spoiled him rotten.”His grandmother was one of Bromley’s biggest supporters when he planned to join Flushing’s football team as a freshman.But when she died, he almost quit.“It was hard,” Bromley said. “I was thinking about her at the time and it was just like, ‘Man, do I really want to put myself through this?’”Bromley was so upset, he had to write Nimmons a letter about considering quitting rather than talk about it. He left the note on her night table.The next day, Nimmons said she would come to every game and take Bromley out for food afterward.One month into the season, quitting never crossed his mind again. Courtesy of Flushing High SchoolSeven times Bromley and Moronta visited Rudy in the hospital. He spent most of 18 months there as a toe infection and allergic reaction to his antibiotic turned into kidney failure and heart problems.The last visit came in mid-January when Bromley brought a Pinstripe Bowl victory football signed by the entire Syracuse team.Yet when they walked in to talk to Rudy, the first thing he wanted to know was how they were doing. Just like always.Rudy went into a coma in early February, and was taken off life support on Feb. 13.“I had just seen him. I had just seen him,” Bromley said pleadingly. For a while, the death seemed surreal.But during training camp this summer, Bromley ordered a “RUDY” sticker for the back of his helmet. Then he took out a red sharpie and wrote Rudy’s two pieces of advice on his practice gloves.Through five games, Bromley said he’s surpassed everything he’s done in the past three years. Facing frequent double teams, he’s made a case that he can compete with the nation’s best.Great, and humble.This season, Bromley says, is for Rudy.“I really just want to play for him as much as possible.” Comments Drew Osumi | Staff PhotographerWhen Frances Nimmons got the call, she sprinted out of her Brooklyn home, into her car and sped east toward Jamaica. A baby had been abandoned at an elderly women’s house across the street from her friend’s house. They thought it might be her brother James Jones’ 3-month-old son Jason.Twelve miles later, Nimmons turned onto 109th Street and saw her friend pointing from the right side of the road at the white house across the street.Nimmons pulled her car up on the left side of the street, hurried out the door and rushed to ring the doorbell as cars backed up behind her.When Nimmons rang the door, the woman answered.“Do you know Tyreine?” she asked, referring to the baby’s mother.“Yes,” Nimmons responded.“Well if you don’t do anything, the baby don’t get nothing. I called (child services). They’re on their way.”Nimmons scooped Jason up and told the woman she was his aunt, scampered back in her car and turned on the ignition.As she was pulling away, an Administration for Children’s Services car pulled up.“They would’ve taken the baby. Abandonment,” Nimmons said. “That’s how Jason stayed out of the system.”Jay Bromley was born on May 28, 1992, to Jones and Tyreine Bromley. One month after Tyreine abandoned her child following her breakup with Jones, Frances and her husband, Roy, were granted legal custody.One month after that, Jones was convicted of murder and imprisonment, and sentenced to 25 to life in prison.Jones tied Shirley Ross, mother of his first child and high on crack cocaine, to their basement radiator. He locked the door on his way out to prevent her from taking more crack.But when Jones came back later that night, Ross was dead. She suffered a heart attack, and was unable to get help.“He thought he was doing the girl a favor,” Nimmons said.So Bromley, with a father on the verge of imprisonment and a mother often out getting high, was taken in by Frances and Roy Nimmons. Mom and Dad to him. Thin, messy red letters are written across the back of Jay Bromley’s gray and white practice gloves.“Be great,” reads the left. “Humble,” the right.The gloves serve as reminders to Bromley. Not only of where he came from, but of who got him here. Of who he’s still playing for, and what lies ahead.More than anything, though, the gloves are reminders to live up to a certain standard of behavior. One that Flushing (N.Y.) High School defensive line coach Rudy Alvarellos inspired him to inherit.“He just taught me everything I knew,” Bromley said. “Be humble. Regardless of my situation. Regardless of how many plays I make. Regardless of what people think of me. Regardless of the accolades I get.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Because just like that,” Bromley said, snapping his right fingers, “it can get taken away.”Drew Osumi | Staff PhotographerBromley speaks from the heart. His biological mother abandoned him when he was 3 months old. His father was charged with murder when he was 5 months. His grandmother, who took care of him for the first 13 years of his life, died the summer before he started high school, and Rudy, the closest thing he had to a father figure in life, died in February.Yet you’ll be hard pressed to find Bromley without a smile. The once violent teenager who became so enthralled in his rage that he would “black out,” is probably the cheeriest, bubbliest player on this year’s Syracuse team.“Football just gave me the opportunity to channel my anger into something positive,” Bromley said.As a captain, he exudes the exact traits Rudy always preached to him — humility and helping others — and five games into this season, the senior defensive tackle is tied for 10th in the country with five sacks and eight tackles for loss.But to truly understand how far he’s come, you need to know where he started. Courtesy of Flushing High SchoolAfter two years at center, Bromley moved to defensive end in his junior year, and unknowingly enrolled in Rudy’s life-coaching class.Rudy spent plenty of time instructing pass rush moves, but Rudy also took Bromley and other linemen out to dinner or the beach.“Rudy gave me somebody to talk about it and make sure that I release my stress and things like that in a positive nature,” Bromley said.One highlight that Bromley and Joel Moronta, another Flushing defensive lineman, both point to is their trip to Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Harlem and the New York Jets-Buffalo Bills game on Oct. 18, 2009.It was the first in-stadium game Bromley ever attended.They sat on the top row of the stadium. “Cold as hell,” Moronta described the rainy afternoon, as all four kept their hands stuffed into their jacket pockets between hot chocolate breaks.For his last two seasons at Flushing, Bromley spent almost every day with Rudy. On weekdays they were player and coach, but on weekends they were more. Father and son, almost.Rudy would pick up Bromley every morning and drop him off at night. When Bromley couldn’t afford cleats before his senior season, Rudy bought him a pair of new, black Nikes.“It was like Jason was his son,” Nimmons said. “Nothing was too good for Jason.”On the field, Bromley garnered a verbal offer from Stony Brook and interest from Syracuse, Rutgers and Penn State. The boy who Flushing head coach Jim DeSantis remembers joining the team as “more fat than muscle” grew into one of the best players in New York City.Off the field, Bromley gradually found solace. He stopped fighting and started focusing on landing a scholarship. When his father was released from prison seven and a half years early, it didn’t affect him.But as he worked on improving his SAT score, Stony Brook backed off. Heading into the Empire Challenge, a postseason all-star game, Bromley had no offers. He was expected to play at New Hampton, a prep school in New Hampshire.“The thing that bugs me the most is Syracuse actually had this film,” DeSantis said. “I was told they thought he moved a little bit too slow and that he didn’t move well enough to be their level of player.”That changed after Bromley dominated the Empire Challenge. Two sacks. Seven tackles. Three for loss.Syracuse offered the next day.Adjusting to life at Syracuse wasn’t too difficult for Bromley. He added 53 pounds between the end of basketball season at Flushing and the start of SU training camp in August 2011, and gained complete control of his temper. His anger was replaced by laughter.Like when teammate Marquis Spruill joked about Bromley nakedly parading through their University Village apartment on his 21st birthday. All Bromley could do was laugh.He’s focusing his spare time on helping others — like Rudy helped him.Staying after practice to work with younger linemen. Making sure everyone has a ride to team events. Even cleaning up the locker room.It’s why Bromley returns to Flushing regularly whenever he’s home. Why he talks to each high school student who will look at him thinking, “If he can make it out, we can, too.”“There’s not a more human person that I know on this team,” head coach Scott Shafer said. “He’s as real as real gets.”last_img read more

Africa pledges its support for Sepp Blatter in Fifa presidency elections

first_imgEvery one of Africa’s 54 member countries will vote for Sepp Blatter in next month’s Fifa presidential election, the president of the Confederation of African Football, Issa Hayatou, said on Tuesday.“Africa is comfortable having you. Africa stays with you,” Hayatou said in a speech to open Caf’s annual congress in Cairo, at which Blatter is present.Although the individual countries do not have to follow Hayatou’s directive, Africa is expected to be a strong base of support for Blatter. With 54 of the 209 Fifa member countries eligible to vote in the presidential election in Zurich on 29 May, Africa is the largest of the six continental confederations.Blatter is seeking a fifth term in office to extend a reign that began in 1998. The Fifa vice-president Prince Ali bin al-Hussein of Jordan, the Dutch FA head, Michael van Praag, and the former Portugal international Luís Figo are standing against him. Those three challengers will not be addressing Caf delegates.In his speech to the congress in Cairo, Blatter reflected on Africa’s achievements during his time as Fifa president, including the continent’s first World Cup in South Africa in 2010.He said Hayatou, who has led CAF for 27 years despite allegations of corruption and an official reprimand by the International Olympic Committee, was a pillar of African football. –last_img read more

Yankees injury updates: Giancarlo Stanton suffers setback, Clint Frazier headed to IL

first_imgBoone also acknowledged Stanton’s shoulder pain isn’t new. Boone said Stanton will stay in Southern California when the team travels to San Francisco on Friday to face the Giants. He will stay back to finish rehab on his shoulder and will rejoin the team in Arizona on Tuesday.MORE: Watch ‘ChangeUp,’ a new MLB live whiparound show on DAZN“He’s had some shoulder stuff in the past. I don’t know if it’s a little bit of a residual,” Boone said, per the New York Daily News. “We figured now while he’s down coming from this, lets just make sure we treat this the best we can and doesn’t become a lingering issue if we can help it.”Frazier, who had been recalled from Triple-A to take Stanton’s roster spot, had an MRI on Wednesday after spraining his left ankle and has been working through bruising and swelling. He initially injured his ankle in Monday’s extra-inning win against the Angels.”They feel like it’s a 10-14 day thing, maybe a little less, so we don’t think it’s a long thing,” Boone said Wednesday. “Fraz very much feels like he can play or is close to playing but the MRI revealed enough in there — I don’t have the exact what it is — but revealed enough of some partial tear and it’s gonna cost him the 10 days. “Initially when the doctor saw him, he didn’t feel like he needed to get any tests. And then kind of proactively yesterday when he had some black-and-blue in there decided let’s make sure we get this thing covered the best we can and make sure we have all the answers we need.”Frazier will be the 15th Yankee added to the injured list this season, and will be the 13th player currently on the team’s IL when he’s officially moved. Reliever Joe Harvey will take Frazier’s place on the active roster.Despite the injuries, New York is sitting second in the AL East entering Thursday’s games with a 14-10 record, behind only the Rays. The Yankees’ injury situation is only getting worse as Giancarlo Stanton faces a setback and Clint Frazier heads to the injured list. Stanton was recovering from a biceps injury and has been sidelined since April 1, but he’s now dealing with a left shoulder issue as well. He received a cortisone shot in his shoulder and is expected to be shut down for at least a few days as he recovers. The good news, though, is Yankees manager Aaron Boone revealed Stanton is “completely healed from the biceps” issue.last_img read more
