Two killed as violence breaks out on Venezuela border over aid, authorities say
02/23/2019 3:44am

Deadly violence broke out at a Venezuelan town near the border with Brazil over aid delivery, leaving two people dead and 17 others injured, local authorities said.The standoff between a local indigenous community and the military over aid delivery occurred Friday near the Venezuelan town of Gran Sabana, said its mayor, Emilio Gonzalez, who told CNN the military opened fire on an indigenous group trying to facilitate the passage of aid into Venezuela.Gonzalez said soldiers shot and killed a 34-year-old indigenous Venezuelan woman and injured 17 others.National Assembly member Americo De Grazia said on his official Twitter feed that two people had died. The second victim was an indigenous man, according to De Grazia.Gonzalez said indigenous guards detained 27 Venezuelan military members. Venezuelas Ministry of Defense told CNN it had no information on the incident.Tensions escalate over aidVenezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, who invoked a constitutional provision last month to declare himself acting president, condemned the incident in a tweet Friday, saying such acts by the military will not go unpunished.Tensions are running high at Venezuelas borders amid opposition plans to usher aid into the country this weekend in defiance of Maduros wishes.Guaido has been working with a raft of global partners to bring Venezuelans desperately needed food and medical supplies. The White House urged the Venezuelan military to allow aid into the country in a statement Friday.The United States strongly condemns the Venezuelan militarys use of force against unarmed civilians and innocent volunteers on Venezuelas border with Brazil, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.Egregious violation of human rights by Maduro and those who are following his orders will not go unpunished. The United States strongly urges the Venezuelan military to uphold its constitutional duty to protect the citizens of Venezuela. The Venezuelan military must allow humanitarian aid to peacefully enter the country. The world is watching.The violence came as dueling concerts kicked off on the countrys western border with Colombia, where aid deliveries from the United States have been languishing since Maduro blocked the Tienditas Bridge.But the US announced Friday preparations to bring aid in through another route.The US and its partners began pre-positioning additional humanitarian aid for Venezuelans in Boa Vista, Brazil, a tweet from the US Department of State said.The aid consists of food kits containing rice, beans, sugar, and salt to feed nearly 3,500 people for 10 days and additional rice to feed an estimated 6,100 people for one month, a fact sheet from the State Department says.Supporters host rival concertsBritish billionaire Richard Branson sponsored a Live Aid-inspired show Friday in Cucuta, Colombia, featuring Latin American stars such as Colombian musical legends Carlos Vives and Juanes, and reggaeton singer Maluma. Colombian President Ivan Duque, Chiles Sebastian Piera and Mario Abdo of Paraguay also joined the crowds.Maduro staged a rival concert a few hundred meters away on the Venezuelan side of the bridge in Tachira.The beleaguered President, who is facing growing calls to step down, denies that a humanitarian crisis exists in his country and suggests that aid efforts are part of a US plot to orchestrate a coup.

Amid fears of bloodshed, some Venezuelans turn to prayer in South Florida
02/22/2019 10:40pm

After a deadly showdown over aid near the Venezuelan border with Brazil, some Venezuelan migrants in South Florida feared for the safety of theadvocates for humanitarian aid who planned to defy the Venezuelan military.A group met to pray at the Iglesia DCN Doral on Friday night and there were other related religious events scheduled for this weekend in South Florida. They are among the estimated tens of thousands of Venezuelan migrants who live in Florida.Under the direction of Rev. Ricardo Alfonso Fernandez, the DCN Doral members bowed their heads to observe a moment of silence for the activists who have died while fighting for change in Venezuela.A trumpeter played Taps during the emotional service.I believe this is the time when we bend our knees, Fernandez said.Some of the members of the churchprayedfor the victims of a Friday shooting that left Venezuela&39s Kumarakapay indigenous village in mourning. Opposition lawmakers identified the woman who was killed as Zoraida Garcia, a mother who worked as a street vendor.Americo De Grazia, a parliamentarian who represents the areain the National Assembly, reportedthe shooting happened under the command of General Jose Miguel Montoya, who remains loyal to embattled President Nicolas Maduro.U.S. President Donald Trump has said he wants Maduro to step down voluntarily, butby saying that all options are on the table he has implied the possibility of military involvement. Some in South Florida fear thepossibility of yet more deaths.Amid the internal and external political tensions, Maduro&39s opposition leader JuanGuaid is leading an effort to deliver humanitarian aid to the most vulnerable communities in Venezuela. Maduro, who announced he was accepting aid from Russia,views the defiant effort as a political strategy.The Venezuela Aid Live concert that billionaire entrepreneur Richard Branson organized in Cucuta, Colombia, with the help ofa long line of celebrity volunteers and the government of Colombia brought some comfort.It was beautiful, but the situation is so serious it&39s hard to feel hope, you know, they have killed so many people. The corrupt will fight to protect their businesses and they are ready to kill, said Natalia Sanchez, a Catholic praying in Key Biscayne. I am frankly scared to tears at what Maduro is capable of against his people. Please pray for us.Maduro has criminalized his political opposition, and human rights activists have criticized his administration over the treatment of dissenters with reports of extrajudicial killings and torture. On Friday night, De Grazia reported authorities were still shooting at civilians.22Feb 10:40 PM GNB persigue a civiles por el Casco Central de SantaElenaDeUairen, disparan a mansalva a los vehculos y motos que transitan, desde las tanquetas en alta velocidad.

Patriots Owner Robert Kraft Charged With Soliciting Prostitute in Florida
02/22/2019 10:40pm

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft was among a number of suspects facing charges as part of a prostitution and human trafficking investigation in Jupiter, Florida, police said Friday.Kraft, 77, is being charged with two counts of soliciting prostitution, Jupiter Police Chief Daniel Kerr said at a news conference.Kerr said the charges stem from two different visits Kraft allegedly made to a spa that was part of a months-long investigation into sex trafficking in the area.

Pyrex Under Fire for Reported Explosions
02/22/2019 6:03pm

Pyrex, a well-known type of bakeware advertised as oven and microwave safe, has come under fire for shattering without warning, prompting a class-action lawsuit alleging the bakeware is dangerous and defective.Hundreds who have complained online have posted photos of shards of glass in ovens, microwaves and on countertops saying the shards came from their Pyrex dishes.Pyrex has been a kitchen staple for more than a century now and is manufactured by Corelle Brands.It originally was made of a type of glass called borosilicate that experts said is heat-tolerant and less likely to shatter, but somewhere along the way, that recipe changed and it now is made of the less expensive soda lime glass. Its unclear when the change was made.Fifteen minutes in, is it was just like, Kaboom one consumer told NBC Responds about her experience with a Pyrex dish. It was like a bomb had gone off.Corelle Brands called those type of cases unusual, saying it produces glassware of the highest quality that is safe to use in conventional, convection and microwave ovens.NBC 5 Responds in Chicago found 850 reports of shattering or exploding glass cookware, including Pyrex and other brands, submitted to the Consumer Product Safety Commission over the past seven years.Corelle Brands said that while any glass bakeware has a risk of breakage, Pyrex glassware has an exceptional safety record.So why is it happening In a demonstration, NBC Responds brought two brand-new baking dishes. One was Pyrex brand, made of soda lime glass, and one was a different brand, made of borosilicate.Using sand, which is common in this type of demonstration, glass expert Mark Meshulam filled both baking dishes and put them in a standard oven at 450 degrees.It has mass, Meshulam said of the sand. It can absorb heat and really hold it just like a liquid can.Nearly an hour later, Meshulam took out the Pyrex dish and placed it on a wet stone slab.Though this is an extreme condition and not advised, Meshulam said it can and does happen. The same thing can happen, he said, when a cool glass dish goes into a preheated oven.The Pyrex instantly exploded, sending shards of glass flying.This was an actual explosion brought about by thermal shock, he said after the demonstration. It was pretty sobering. Pretty scary.As soda lime glass heats up, Meshulam said, it grows and expands. If you put it on a cool surface, that movement is retracting suddenly.The surface quickly absorbs the heat, creating thermal shock. The bottom is trying to shrink really, really rapidly, and it just cant.The baking dish made out of borosilicate was kept in the oven for almost two hours and put on the wet stone slab.Instead of breaking catastrophically and spraying shards all over the place, it broke in what looks to me to be three pieces, Meshulam said.He said thats because borosilicate does not expand nearly as much as soda lime glass when heated.One thing the maker of Pyrex and its critics can agree on: The best place to put hot glassware out of the oven is onto a cloth potholder.The other questions may be answered in the class-action lawsuit filed in Chicago containing allegations that Correlle Brands has denied in court.The company said it does not comment on pending litigation.
