“I think I’m in the best position to do it. I’m a compassionate advocate, I’m a mother, I’m a small business owner, I’ve faced tough elections,” said Tenney. Former Congresswoman, Claudia Tenney, has her eyes on regaining the seat once again after she was defeated by incumbent and democrat, Anthony Brindisi, in 2018. Meanwhile, she faces Seton Catholic Central and SUNY Broome history teacher, George Phillips, in the race after beating him in the 2018 primary election. “I’m the only one who can beat Anthony Brindisi,” said Phillips. “Tenney lost to the district that the president won by 15 points. It’s a big republican district and I’m the only one that can beat Brindisi in this election in the fall.” In response, Tenney says, “The only people that are going to rebuild this are the people who built the economy in the first place and that’s President Trump and the republicans, so people like me who understand small business.” (WBNG) — As the race for New York’s 22nd Congressional District seat heats up, both republican candidates express their goals before the primary. The candidates say they want to focus on the financial comeback for the 22nd district from the pandemic crisis. In response to the crisis, Phillips says, “I’ve laid out a plan on the economic issues that are so important here… I’m the only one with true conservative values.” Both candidates say they are the best ones to beat Anthony Brindisi in the general election come November. Phillips saying he is the better pick because he represents the Southern Tier as someone who is a strong member of the community. Tenney says she is the better pick because of her experience with elections and politics as well as being an owner of a small business.

Poisoning social relations “Not all of the calls lead to police intervention,” said Heidi Vogt, a spokeswoman for the police in Berlin.At the end of March, overwhelmed by complaints, police in the German capital appealed to residents on Twitter to stop calling the 110 emergency number, stressing that it was “not designed for lockdown breaches”.Andreas Geisel, interior minister for the city-state of Berlin, called on citizens to restrain themselves.”We don’t want any snitching,” he told RBB radio. “With a soft lockdown like we have in Germany at the moment, people’s continued freedom depends on their ability to contain themselves,” political historian Klaus-Peter Sick told AFP.”If a group of young people are behaving in an undisciplined way, some people will see that as irresponsible and not thinking about others,” which can lead to frustration and denunciation, he said.But some informers are motivated less by social responsibility and more by the desire to settle personal scores.”This is always the case in times of crisis, especially when they give rise to new regulations that make it possible to invoke justice: anyone who is jealous of their neighbor now has the opportunity to denounce them for the slightest violation of the coronavirus rules,” said Behr.”That poisons social relations.” Telling on your neighbors is a highly sensitive subject in a country still haunted by memories of Nazism and the former communist dictatorship in East Germany, two regimes under which informing on others was practically a national policy.The term “Duninziant” (“snitch”) has been trending on Twitter, fuelling ever more reference to the Third Reich and the Stasi secret police.”All of this appears to confirm a deep-seated prejudice that Germans have against themselves: That when in doubt, a part of the population is willing to become an extension of state power,” psychology professor Christian Stoecker told Der Spiegel weekly.But Germany is not the only country to have seen a rise in the number of people reporting fellow citizens to the authorities for breaching virus-related social distancing rules. Similar observations have been made in countries around the world where lockdowns have been imposed: In New Zealand, a dedicated website was deluged with reports; in South Africa, a wedding was interrupted after an anonymous call; and in France, the emergency number 17 has been overrun with calls. On a sunny Sunday in April, 20 people were enjoying a barbecue in the city of Schwerin in northern Germany.The police promptly intervened, slapping them with a fine for breaking new social distancing rules to limit the spread of COVID-19.They were alerted to the festivities by a neighbor, “outraged by such behavior”, who also proceeded to boast about her efforts on social media, opening up a heated debate about the return of denunciation to Germany and whether it is acceptable in the current crisis. Universal phenomenon “The phenomenon is universal, but with different regional characteristics. It happens more often in urban areas, where many people depend on each other, than in less populated areas where you have more space,” said Rafael Behr, a professor of criminology and sociology at the Hamburg Police Academy.”Acts of denunciation will increase, as will acts of solidarity,” he predicts.”The longer the state of emergency goes on, the more antisocial people will become and the more mistrust and suspicion will develop, for example about whether your neighbor is contagious.”In Germany, police are receiving several hundred complaints a day via phone calls, emails and social media, according to an AFP tally.In Munich alone, “around 100 to 200 citizens are calling every day” with violations to report, according to Sven Mueller, a spokesman for the city’s police force.In the state of Brandenburg, which surrounds Berlin, police intervened in 2,930 violations of social distancing rules between March 20 and April 7.”Around two thirds of these cases were linked to reports from citizens,” said police spokeswoman Stefanie Klaus.The majority of complaints are about people entering public spaces such as stadiums, parties in private homes or cars with license plates from outside the area.

Every Michigan family deserves the peace of mind of knowing that when they hand a glass of water to their child it is safe. I am proud of our state’s work leading the way when it comes to PFAS detection and investigation. I will continue to support efforts to address this growing issue.”According to Oscoda Township Supervisor Aaron Weed, there is not much that can be done at this point until the EGLE meets with the township board.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Hinks Elementary hosts lemonade sale to teach financial literacyNext Help send Underwater Robotics Club to international competition
Ghana youth defender Patrick Asmah is set to join Italian Serie A side Atalanta after agreeing a 4 year deal with the club.Asmah joins a whole host of players to have deported the shores of the country in search of greener pastures.However, the BA United left back joins a select few to move directly from Ghana to a top European league over the last few seasons.Chelsea full back Baba Rahman was the last to move from Kotoko to Greuther Fürth, who were 0in the Bundesliga at that time.The norm has seen Ghanaian players roam through Scandinavian or other African countries before making the giant step to the major European leagues.For Asmah, his agent Oliver Arthur believes his outstanding display at the FIFA under 20 World Cup stood him in good standing for the deal. “Asmah is moving directly from Ghana to Atalanta. If the player is a young player who has prospects and is possible to develop, it is possible to get him to mainstream Europe,” Oliver told Joy Sports“Asmah is in Ghana now, he never came for trials in Italy but based on his performance at the under 20 World Cup, I was able to convince Atalanta to give him a contract to get him into Europe.”“I’m sure Asmah something big in the future.”Asmah was also a member of Ghana’s under 23 team that had an abysmal showing at the All African Games in Congo-Brazzaville. – Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoyFMSports.

Israel was referring to last week’s 25-15 vote in Tallahassee, in which the State Senate voted to uphold Governor Ron DeSantis’ decision to remove Israel from office. DeSantis suspended Israel last January, claiming that Israel’s incompetence resulted in his deputies’ poor performance in responding to last year’s shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland.Israel maintains that he was removed only because DeSantis is a Republican and Israel is a Democrat.He provided examples of other mass shootings around the country as proof of his explanation. He says, “No sheriff, no elected official, no police chief has been suspended. Just me.”Israel also referred to many of his deputies as “brave” and “heroes” in their response to the shooting. He adds, “We had one deputy that didn’t go in, referring to Deputy Scot Peterson. “It wasn’t a training issue. It wasn’t a policy issue. It was a fear issue.”The former sheriff says he will run again for that position in 2020, and that he believes the voters still want him as their sheriff.“They understand this election was stolen from them, that the 2016 election for sheriff was wiped out,” Israel says of voters. “The sheriff of any county in America is not the sheriff of one group of people or one city or one town or one area. You’re the sheriff of everyone in the county. As I’ve said all along, the only one responsible for taking lives that day was the evil killer,” referring to accused shooter Nikolas Cruz.850 WFTL’s Karen Curtis will soon interview Scott Israel, as well as his replacement and campaign rival, Gregory Tony. Former Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel says his removal from office was purely political.He tells a local reporter, “It was a political sham. They dealt from the bottom of the deck. We had no chance of ever prevailing.”
