By Dialogo February 07, 2012 In early January, the Ecuadorean Navy detected another drug submersible 60 miles off the coast of Puná Island, in an action in which three Colombian nationals and one Ecuadorean citizen were arrested after they succeeded in sinking the vessel. This is the second large drug seizure of 2012, following the announcement by the police and the Navy on January 27 that 1.3 tons of cocaine had been seized in the gulf of Guayaquil, where three Ecuadorean nationals were also apprehended. Ecuador seized around 26 tons of drugs during 2011, compared to 18 tons in 2010 and a record of 68 tons in 2009 (64 of them cocaine), according to the police. “More than a ton of drugs, nine people arrested, high-caliber weapons (…) are the results of a police operation,” Justice Minister José Serrano reported on his Twitter account, where he also congratulated the Anti-narcotics Police for their work. The seizure took place in the maritime port following the arrest of the nine suspects in various locations in Guayaquil and in the locality of Mocache, which belongs to the neighboring province of Los Ríos. That shipment was being stored on a Puná Island shrimp boat, according to authorities, who simultaneously discovered a submersible on Santa Clara Island, 25 km south of Puná, which was used to transport alkaloids to Central America. The individuals arrested were brought before a judge to be arraigned for alleged narcotics trafficking, according to the police. The Ecuadorean police seized at least a ton of cocaine in the city of Guayaquil, southwest of Quito, in an operation in which nine people were arrested, authorities announced on February 5.
“We are seeing a reduction in the rate of growth but a rate of growth nonetheless,” Newsom, a Democrat, said at a briefing in Sacramento.”Hospitalizations and ICU [admissions] continue to be cause of concern in this state. That’s why we want everybody to double down on what we’ve been doing,” the governor said.Teams from the Federal Emergency Management Agency arrived to pitch in at strapped Southern California hospitals.”We really pushed up last week to our limits. If we had continued to see accelerating number of cases coming into the hospital, something would have to give,” said Dr. Allan Williamson, chief medical officer at Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage, east of Los Angeles. The coronavirus pandemic raged in Florida on Monday as the state reported more than 10,000 new infections for a sixth day in a row, but California saw improvement, with cases and hospitalizations beginning to stabilize after a surge.Florida has become the epicenter of the latest COVID-19 surge, prompting the state’s teachers union to sue Republican Governor Ron DeSantis over his plan to reopen schools for in-class instruction.In California, which emerged as another coronavirus hotspot in July, Governor Gavin Newsom said new infections, hospitalizations and intensive care unit admissions were all still rising in the nation’s most populous state but not nearly at the pace of recent weeks. Topics : “So fortunately, the federal government, through the Department of Defense was able to step in and provide us some additional staffing, which has really helped us a lot,” Williamson said.The mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, has more than once threatened to impose a new “stay-at-home” order in America’s second-largest city if trends were not reversed. California’s high school sports authority postponed fall competitions, including football, altering a rite of passage for many Americans.Trump tweets face mask photoFlorida reported 10,347 new infections on Monday, the sixth day in a row the state has announced over 10,000 new cases. Another 92 people died in Florida, increasing the state’s death toll to 5,183.DeSantis, who has been sharply criticized for his handling of the crisis, said over the weekend that positivity rates and COVID-19-related emergency room visits have been trending lower in recent weeks.New York, which has recorded far more deaths than any other U.S. state, 32,000, recorded only eight fatalities on Sunday.The total number of people hospitalized in New York for the disease fell to 716, the fewest since March 18, Governor Andrew Cuomo said. Restrictions were eased slightly with zoos and the Statue of Liberty reopening as well as professional sports without fans.Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a Democrat, imposed new clamp-downs, including a ban on indoor service at bars and shutdown of personal services such as shaves and facials that require the removal of masks.”While we aren’t near the peak of the pandemic from earlier this year, none of us wants to go back there,” Lightfoot said in a statement.Metrics nationwide show a continued surge in the pandemic, with 32 states reporting record increases in COVID-19 cases in July and 15 states reporting record increases in deaths.The illness has killed 140,000 people in the United States and infected some 3.7 million, both figures leading the world.President Donald Trump, who had pushed back on mask requirements by state and local officials, on Monday posted a black and white photo of himself wearing one on Twitter.”We are United in our effort to defeat the Invisible China Virus, and many people say that it is Patriotic to wear a face mask when you can’t socially distance. There is nobody more Patriotic than me, your favorite President!,” Trump said in a tweet.Trump also said he would resume holding regular COVID-19 news briefings on Tuesday after stopping in April.
Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 16, 2016 at 10:52 pm Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21 An eventful first inning left Syracuse in a four-run hole and without its head coach.Two North Carolina State singles and a pair of walks put the Orange down less than 15 minutes in. Head coach Mike Bosch was ejected in the first inning after arguing a close call at the plate. It all came right on the heels of SU losing by one run in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader after Cheyenne Balzer launched a go-ahead home run in the seventh inning.But the Orange scored five unanswered runs in its comeback thanks to mid-game adjustments at the plate and in the field. Syracuse (22-18, 7-9 Atlantic Coast) fought all the way back from a four-run deficit in the first inning to beat NC State (20-25, 4-10), 5-4, in game 2 on Saturday at SU Softball Stadium.The Orange banged out 10 hits in game 1 — twice as many as N.C. State — but only plated four in the loss. In game 2, SU again recorded 10 hits but only had five runs to show for it. The Orange left nine runners on base in game 2, and 16 between both games, but in the final six frames on the day, SU stranded only four.“You can be anxious in the beginning of the game, you can be aggressive,” senior Corinne Ozanne said. “We kept our composure and that was kind of the turning point.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWith the exception of a fourth-inning rally, the Orange didn’t capitalize on scoring opportunities until Andrea Bombace’s walk-off single in the 10th inning. Before that, SU, Bombace especially, couldn’t get the timely hit.The fourth was the only inning in which the Orange strung together more than two hits. This stemmed from SU assistant coach Alisa Goler’s decision to have Aliyah Wade pinch run at first base. The next batter grounded to Wolfpack second baseman Maggie Hawkins, who tried for the lead runner, Wade. The throw was rushed and sailed wide because of Wade’s speed. SU took advantage of two N.C. State errors and scored three runs.“We wanted to give ourselves the chance to kind of get the ball rolling,” Goler said of subbing in Wade. “She’s just the one that got in there. And she did do a good job. She forced chaos on the bases.”During that inning, Goler met with her base runners to help help keep the players focused. Goler called more of these mini-huddles than she or Bosch normally do. In addition to the team huddle between innings, Goler met with players several times during innings, including in the fourth, when the meetings helped SU score three runs.“When you get kids on, sometimes they start to pressure,” SU assistant coach Kristyn Sandberg said. “I think we just needed to reassure to them that they were good hitters and capable of performing. Once they kind of relaxed a little bit and got in their competitive mode, they were able to have that clutch hit.”The Orange transferred its mid-game composure at the plate onto the field. This was highlighted by an Alicia Hansen fielding clinic in the fourth inning. With the Orange still down 4-0, Hansen ranged to her right to cut off a grounder up the middle. A bad hop didn’t stop the freshman from centering it in her body and making an accurate throw to first base.The next batter hit a fairly hard one-hopper to Hansen’s left. She laid out and, without getting up, made a backhand toss to Ozanne at first base for the out. The play earned Hansen hugs from right fielder Rachel Burkhardt and center fielder Sydney O’Hara, who both jugged in from their positions.“They very easily could have just gone off after the first inning,” Sandberg said, “but we refocused them and they got back and they competed well.”Shortstop Sammy Fernandez made a similarly difficult play on a ball to her right. She slid into the ball, backhanded it and stood to her feet before firing a strike to Ozanne’s chest. Syracuse could have faltered defensively after a long first inning, but it didn’t make an error in either contest.AnnaMarie Gatti started the game in the circle and, although she didn’t pitch all 10 innings, earned her ninth win of the year. O’Hara relieved Gatti in the seventh, dealing three shutout innings. Then, in the top half of the 10th, Gatti came back to finish the game she started. She pitched with forcefulness, striking out the side.“We just kept ballin’,” Bombace said. “We didn’t give up.” Comments Related Stories Andrea Bombace’s walk-off hit propels Syracuse to 5-4 win over North Carolina State
