Florida man throws urine on prosecutor during court proceedings

first_imgA Florida man who is facing attempted murder charges is now facing additional charges after he allegedly threw urine on a prosecutor during court proceedings.The incident occurred Wednesday in a Broward County court room.According to the report, Albert Narvaez was facing sentencing for holding his former girlfriend at gunpoint inside a car and shooting at her when she managed to escape.Attorney Andrew Newman, who won the case against Narvaez was present in the courtroom.At some point during proceedings, Narvaez took out a container in which he stored urine in and flung it at Newman while yelling, “He told me to do it!”Officials say they are unsure of who Narvaez was referring to.The urine was said to have gone inside of Newman’s mouth and all over his clothing.Narvaez’ sentencing has since been postponed, however, he is now facing an additional charge of battery .The Broward State Attorney’s Office also reported that they will ask Gov. Ron DeSantis to appoint another prosecutors’ office to handle the case, as to avoid a conflict of interest because Newman is one of their employees.last_img read more

Former ambassador analyzes US-Mexico relations

first_imgFollow us on Twitter @dailytrojan On Wednesday, the USC Center on Public Diplomacy at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism hosted Arturo Sarukhan, Mexico’s former ambassador to the United States and current fellow at USC’s Center on Public Diplomacy, in a panel on United States-Mexico relations.Foreign ties· Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan speaks about the relationship between Mexico and the United States on Wednesday. – Corey Marquetti | Daily TrojanPamela Starr, associate professor of international relations and director of U.S.-Mexico Network at USC, and Jay Wang, director of the USC Center on Public Diplomacy, joined Sarukhan on the panel.“No bilateral relation has as many implications for domestic politics as the relation between the U.S. and Mexico,” Wang said. “It is, in fact, an illuminating case of how intertwined and how interdependent foreign policy and domestic policy have become.”Sarukhan, who served as an ambassador from 2007 until January of 2013, compared multiple perspectives on the Mexican-American relationship. He also brought  humor into the discussion.“Whenever one speaks, especially in this type of setting, I am reminded especially of what a friend in Texas told me. ‘Public speaking is like a Texas longhorn: there’s a point here, a point here and a lot of bull in the middle,’” Sarukhan said.Jokes aside, Sarukhan also spoke seriously on the bilateral relationship between the two countries.“As I thought of the conversation today, I thought it would make sense to do a sort of comparative approach, and use Charles Dickens as a template for the talks,” Sarukhan said. “And just as his template in the Tale of Two Cities the relationship between Mexico and the U.S. … is the best of times and the worst of times.”Sarukhan said the “best of times” began with the North American Free Trade Agreement, which linked Canada, America and Mexico economically. This agreement revitalized Mexico and ended its jingoism while promoting increased codependence, he said.“I think that NAFTA really changed how both governments interacted with one another,” Sarukhan said. “I know a lot of people who still believe that NAFTA is not a success, or a disaster, but we must agree that NAFTA is one thing and one thing only, a free trade agreement … and that it has done admirably well.”Sarukhan gave examples of NAFTA’s effects, citing the fact that $1.4 billion worth of trade happens daily on the U.S.-Mexico border and that Mexico remains the second largest importer of American goods. He also argued that the recent reverse in immigration trends comes from NAFTA’s revitalization of Mexico. Sarukhan said that the hardest part in the relationship between the two countries comes in swaying the public’s opinions.“Why is this the worst of times?” Sarukhan asked. “Because public opinions and public perceptions differ wildly from this diagnostic I have given you. And it’s basically been driven by … two drivers. The first one is obviously immigration … The second issue, obviously, has been the violence that has occurred through the shift in the paradigm of transnational crime.”Sarukhan told an anecdote from when he became the first Mexican ambassador with an official Twitter account. Though he started tweeting in English, within three weeks, there was uproar in Mexico.“‘Why are you tweeting in English? You have to tweet in Spanish,’” Sarukhan said people told him. “Then suddenly I realized that if I was to make headway convincing both sides of the border, I would have to tweet bilingually.”Students who attended the event were impressed by Sarukhan’s speaking ability.“[Sarukhan is] an amazing guy,” said Syuzanna Petrosyan, a second-year graduate student studying public diplomacy. “I’ve heard and read a lot about him. He’s a great speaker with a lot of experience. He’s very innovative in his approaches when it comes to diplomacy and foreign policy.”Sarukhan, who will now serve as a distinguished scholar at the CPD, said his main difficulty as ambassador was catering to citizens of both Mexico and the United States.“At the end of the day, and I’ll finish with this, if you were to ask me what was your most relevant challenge as a Mexican ambassador, I’d probably say winning both the hearts of Mexicans and Americans,” he said. “The largest challenge was to convince Mexicans and Americans that there are no two societies more relevant to each other’s well-being than Mexico and America.”last_img read more

League: the Government believes it is a matter of time the suspension

first_imgAccording to the Federation, “Article 42.3a of the Statutes allows the RFEF to make the decision to suspend the League, but as it is about professional football that is why Thebes has been invited to participate in this Thursday’s meeting with the aim of making it a consensus decision, also in the AFE “. In the Superior Council of Sports they believe that the best thing “is that there is consensus, but in any case it will be what the Ministry of Health says.”Several clubs and soccer players requested yesterday the suspension of the next two days instead of their celebration behind closed doors, as agreed at this time. Hours later, the AFE asked for the same measure and made a joint note for us to play the matches between Italian and Spanish teams in European competitions. David Aganzo, president of AFE, in statements to Cuatro has assured that “we have sent three letters (to the CSD, LaLiga and the RFEF) showing the concern of our soccer players. The protection is good. Let’s try not to play. “The League justified in a public note that it had decided to hold the next two closed day attending, precisely, to the instructions of the health authorities and the Higher Sports Council.The Federation had already suspended all non-professional competitions in the morning at the state level and invited the territorial federations to adopt the same measure in the tournaments of their competition. The First and Second Division League matches could be suspended after the meeting that will take place tomorrow at 12 noon between the Federation, LaLiga and AFE, once Javier Tebas has accepted Rubiales’ invitation to this important meeting, as reported. The Spanish Football Federation is in favor of the suspension, as reported by the SER, while the employer continues to refer to the recommendations of the health authorities as assured Javier Thebes in statements to Four: “There is no news. I am waiting for Health to see what it says. It is not pressure because I wait to see what Health says. My only pressure is what Health says.” For its part, the Federation has the power to suspend a “force majeure” competition in accordance with article 42.3.a of the FEF Statutes.The Government also bets on the suspension: “It is only a matter of time,” government sources have acknowledged to this newspaper. “We must wait for tomorrow’s meeting between the Federation, LaLiga and the AFE, and then the decision will be taken,” said the same sources.last_img read more

UWI edge Tivoli in West Kingston thriller

first_imgAndrae Bernal came on as a late substitute and scored the winning goal for the University of the West Indies FC against Tivoli Gardens in a thrilling 3-2 encounter in the Red Stripe Premier League at the Edward Seaga Complex yesterday. UWI’s scorers were Kemoy Atkinson (34th), Girvon Brown (44th) and Bernal (90th plus one minute). Peter Keyes (22nd) and goalkeeper Edsel ‘Robbie’ Scott converted from the penalty spot in the 76th minute for Tivoli. The game was a fierce encounter as both teams ended with ten players each. Tivoli’s Shavar Campbell picked up a red card in the 35th minute for violent conduct, while Kemar Flemmings was issued a second yellow card and was ejected in the 79th minute. The teams battled each other hard for the entire game. However, UWI scored in added time to break the deadlock. Bernal was naturally happy to score the winning goal for his team. “The aim was to get three points, and that was achieved in a team effort,” Bernal, who replaced Anthony Greenland in the 83rd minute, told The Gleaner. “We want to finish in the top two for an automatic semi-final spot in the championship round, so to beat the leaders was very good for the team,” he added. THE ISSUE OF INJURIES Bernal has been in and out of the team due to injuries and is looking forward to staying injury-free for the remainder of the season. “We are a confident young team and I want to stay injury-free in order to assist the team,” he added. UWI coach Marcel ‘Fuzzy’ Gayle disclosed that the game plan was not to make Tivoli beat us in their physical game. “We didn’t want Tivoli to get the better of us in a physical encounter, so we were prepared for that,” Gayle said. Meanwhile, coach of Tivoli Gardens Omar Edwards said his team moved away from the game plan. “We lost our emotion and deviated from the game plan. The early red card took a toll on the team. We played with ten players for too long,” Edwards said. The win pushed UWI on to 42 points, the same as Montego Bay United and Tivoli Gardens. However, Tivoli remained in pole position with a superior goal difference.
