“If you don’t stand up for something, you fall for anything,” said Quinones. (WBNG) — Protests across the country have sparked a passion within the hearts of many, including the younger generation taking to the streets to fight racial injustice. “I’m speaking up for what’s right and I believe my grandpa would be proud of me,” said Mazrui. “It really hurt me the most because I live in a neighborhood where everybody knows each other, everybody knows me,” said Quinones. He says that incident shaped his relationship with law enforcement, adding, “There are good cops. They’re not all bad cops. I look at it this way… when you get bit by a poisonous snake, you’re going to take the necessary precautions to make sure you don’t get bit again whether the snake is poisonous or not. You’re not going to want to encounter another snake.” Growing up mixed race and considered a person of color, Quinones is no stranger to racial profiling. He says when he was 16, an officer put him in handcuffs after demanding for his ID, which Quinones said he did not have on hand. He says the officer kept him in the handcuffs because he looked like a similar profile to a person with a warrant out for an arrest. Grace Mazrui grew up in Nigeria until she was six years old. She says her grandfather, Ali Mazrui, was born in Kenya and was a political scholar in Africa. He ended up being an activist in racial equality, even doing some work with Martin Luther King Jr. and Maya Angelou. Mazrui says her grandfather would be impressed to see her fighting for racial justice at such a young age, just like him. For 19-year-old Danny Quinones, 20-year-old Elissa Manwaring, and 16-year-old Grace Mazrui, youth is not wasted on the young. Instead, they’re taking their youth as an opportunity to create a platform for the generations that follow. Meanwhile, people like Elissa Manwaring, say it’s important for the white community to educate themselves and stand with their family and friends of color and those who identify as black or African. She says listening is the most important part because, “There’s things that go on underneath the surface that we don’t even think about that we need to recognize.” 12 News sat down with three people of Gen Z, the generation of people born around 1997 to 2012. This diverse group of young blood has been taking on the Black Lives Matter spreading across the globe. All three come from different backgrounds, but know their voices in unison can speak volumes for the generations that come after them. You can learn from children, from a kid,” said Quinones. “Until people are willing to learn from each other as a whole… black, white, whatever the race may be… then there really wont be any change.”

Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Two of Dave Roberts’ first baseball coaches agree: the Dodgers’ new manager is a born leader. At least, a teenage Roberts already had the potential to manage a Major League Baseball team by the time he got to Butch Smith at Vista High School or Gary Adams at UCLA.“He was like a 21-year-old man at 14,” Smith recalled. “He already had his design on life, what he wanted to do, what he wanted to become.”Roberts was Smith’s first star pupil, the freshman MVP of a Vista junior varsity team that went 19-3. Both of those attributes made him a leader on the field in college.“Just observing the Dodgers a bit, I don’t go to a lot of their games, one or two a year, but I notice a little lifelessness to them,” Adams said. “I think he would add a lot of energy and life. His enthusiasm is contagious. Players would say, ‘we never had to pick up Dave, he always picked us up’.”Yet Roberts failed to impress major league scouts despite hitting .331 as a sophomore at UCLA, .296 as a junior and .353 as a senior. He stole 36, 28 and 45 bases, respectively.His problem, Adams said, was defense.“The guy was relentless in wanting to get better,” Adams said. “After his junior year, he was drafted in the 47th round, the 1,303rd player chosen. His teammates who were juniors at the time, seven others, were drafted way higher. He came into my office after the draft was held feeling really down in the dumps. I didn’t see him that way really often. He sat down across my desk and said, ‘what do I have to do to get drafted higher than this? What are the scouts looking for?’“I said, well DR, you have the speed. You’re a natural leadoff man. … You and I both know you can do that. Your weakness is your arm; you don’t have a big-league arm in their estimation, but you can learn to be quicker to the ball than any other outfielder. Balls that go in the gap, you can cut it off. You don’t need to throw it far. The next year, we worked on it thanks to (coaches) Don Tamburro and Vince Beringhele. He led our outfielders in assists.”The Cleveland Indians drafted Roberts in the 28th round after his senior year of 1994. He signed for a $1,000 bonus.Off the field, Smith said that Roberts worked for his landscaping company in Vista through high school and college, then later at his baseball academy in Vista. One day, a local man called Smith intending to send his two grandsons to his baseball academy. His name: Duke Snider.“That’s where (Snider) met Dave,” Smith recalled. “Automatically like everywhere else, they hit it off and became great friends. Duke was very proud of David and followed him every step of the way until he died.“When Dave played center field for the Dodgers, I was like crazy — the correlation.”Roberts, who will be introduced as manager next Tuesday, played for the Dodgers from 2002-04.Adams wrote a book recalling his conversations with legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden (“Conversations With Coach Wooden”) that published in 2013. In it, Roberts offers a powerful endorsement for Adams, calling him “the best coach I have ever had.”For both Adams and Smith, the feelings are mutual.“I’ve coached for 40 years,” Smith said. “The only way you can win at any level is you have to have that leader that’s on the field. That’s what David did for me. I never had anybody before or since. He was just magnetic. People are just drawn to him.” Rancho Buena Vista High School opened the following year and Roberts was among the students living within its territory. He transferred as a sophomore, and immediately started on the varsity football, basketball and baseball teams.“The Air Force Academy wanted him as an option quarterback,” Smith said. “Baseball wasn’t on top of everyone else’s list, but it was on his.”Roberts only had one scholarship offer in any sport, Adams said. But he was determined, and he had the grades to succeed in college, so he and Smith showed up at Jackie Robinson Field one day to make their pitch.Adams liked Roberts’ height — 5-foot-8, same as his — and the fact that he could run. The Bruins could use a stolen-base threat, if Roberts was willing to walk on and wait for a scholarship and a place on the field.“His enthusiasm was obvious,” Adams said. “I didn’t know about his work ethic yet.”
“Marco played really well today, and really hurt us,” said Ter Stegen.A luckless Reus also fired another good chance well over, while substitute Julian Brandt thundered a long-range effort against the crossbar.Messi had begun his 30-minute cameo by that point, having come on around the hour mark for Ansu Fati, the 16-year-old prodigy freshly crowned as Barcelona’s youngest ever Champions League debutant.Yet the Argentine remained as blunt as his teammates in a Barcelona attack stifled by the impeccable defending of Dortmund elder statesmen Hummels and Axel Witsel.He nonetheless had a chance to score the winner with the last kick of the game, but was denied by a desperate block from Thomas Delaney.Share on: WhatsApp Dortmund, Germany | AFP | Lionel Messi returned from injury to make an innocuous first appearance of the season as Barcelona escaped with a 0-0 draw at Borussia Dortmund in their Champions League opener on Tuesday.Messi, who has missed the start of the season with a calf injury, came off the bench in a game which Barcelona were lucky not to lose after Dortmund captain Marco Reus missed a penalty and several chances in the second half.“We played brilliantly in the second half, and it feels a bit like we have lost two points,” Dortmund defender Mats Hummels told Sky.“It is a tough group and we could have put ourselves in a good position with a win today.”Lucien Favre’s side delivered on their pre-match promise to play fearlessly against five-time European champions Barcelona, probing the visitors from the wings and repeatedly finding gaps in the back line.Both sides had chances in a game of cat and mouse in the first half, but it was Dortmund who looked the more likely to score.Reus was denied at point-blank range by goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen and Jadon Sancho fired the ball over the crossbar shortly before half-time.The hosts continued to turn the screw after the break, and were rewarded with a penalty when Nelson Semedo tripped Sancho in the box.Yet Ter Stegen denied Reus again from 12 yards, diving low to his left to beat away his Germany team mate’s spot-kick. The Barcelona keeper has now saved four of the six penalties he has faced in the Champions League, and was called upon to stop Reus yet again later in the half as Dortmund continued to dominate.
Today President Trump called this poor old man “ANTIFA” and defended the cops viciously attacking him. He’s 75 years old for god’s sake! pic.twitter.com/hle5ktmTp8— Black Lives Matter (@HKrassenstein) June 9, 2020 Trump tweeted Gugino “could be an Antifa provocateur” claiming he appeared “to scan police communications in order to monitor, track or black out the equipment” – adding “I watched, he fell harder than was pushed. Was aiming scanner. Could be a set-up?” President Trump reportedly siting information from this conservative sourced article.(Via Daily Mail) – Two Buffalo cops have been arrested and charged with second degree assault after they shoved a 75-year-old peace activist to the ground Thursday causing him to crack his head open on the sidewalk, as hundreds of colleagues gathered outside the city court in solidarity to cheer their release without bail.Aaron Torgalski and Robert McCabe were each charged with one count of assault in the second degree in a court hearing Saturday morning over the shocking incident that left peaceful protester Martin Gugino in a ‘serious condition’ in hospital.The cops were arraigned in a virtual court hearing where they both pleaded not guilty to the charges and the two cops hid from the view of the camera.They each face up to seven years in prison if convicted of the class D felony. They were released without bail and will appear back in court on July 20.Gugino is still in the hospital with a head injury while the officers have been charged with assault and are suspended without pay.However, here is an alleged photo of Mr. Martin Gugino sitting up chatting on his cell phone before being loaded into the ambulance: President Trump has fired off another incendiary tweet this time about the possible Antifa affiliation of a 75-year old protester in Buffalo, who hit his head on the sidewalk after being shoved by police. Video showing 75-year-old Martin Gugino being pushed to the ground during a demonstration in Buffalo quickly went viral last week.
England’s Jamie Bower has scored his second win in South Africa, with a hot putter giving him a three-stroke victory in the Southern Cape Open at Mossel Bay. The 22-year-old from Meltham, Yorkshire, beat par in each of the four rounds, finishing on 12-under to take the trophy. His closest challenger was South Africa’s Jovan Rebula on nine-under while the third placed players were a further three shots back. “My putter was really hot all week and I think that’s the biggest reason why I was able to score well,” said Bower. “Also it was quite windy all week and I think that gave us English players a slight advantage over the locals as we’re more used to it.” It’s just three weeks since Bower won the North Gauteng Open at Irene Golf Club and his two wins sandwich a third place finish in the African Amateur at Leopard Creek. He said: “This win is even more pleasing to me than the last one. To say I’m struggling with my swing is probably the wrong word, but I certainly wasn’t on it tee to green as I was at Irene a few weeks ago. It was mainly my putter that did the damage this time. So, to still win despite not quite being at my best with my long game is really satisfying for me.” In the Southern Cape Open Bower was one shot off the pace going into the final round, having scored two-under 70 followed by 68, 70. “One shot behind with 18 to play is nothing, especially with the wind blowing,” he remarked. “My main goal for the final round was to not make any big mistakes. I knew there was a good chance that other players around me would fall away so I just tried to keep my ball in play as often as I could and let the birdies take care of themselves.” He got to the turn in one-under and flew home in 33 for another 68, with birdies on 13, 16 and 17 putting him out of reach of his challengers. He added: “I do seem to like it over here! The warm weather is very much a feel good factor, so that helps. I put a lot of work into my game leading up to this tour and it’s nice to see some reward for that.” Nigel Edwards, the England Golf Performance Director, commented: “Jamie’s success in South Africa is a result of the dedication, hard work and commitment to get better over the last number of years. I am delighted for Jamie as he has shown great attitude and determination to succeed and he is now reaping the rewards. I’m sure we will see Jamie continue to progress over the summer, he is a real role model for others to follow.” Bower is part of an England Golf squad touring South Africa, alongside Paul Kinnear (Formby) and Alfie Plant (Sundridge Park). They have two more events to play: the Cape Province Open on 23-25 February at Kingswood Golf Estate and the South African Amateur, 28 Feb-4 March at George Golf Club.

Powered by Firework The COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic has taken a massive blown at the world of sports. Several major fixtures, events and leagues have seen postponement and cancellation, and many sportspersons, players, coaches and officials are under isolation or quarantine, or in a general leisure away from the field. However, not in the case of Harendra Singh. India’s field hockey coach and former international player is not resting. From guiding the players on the field, Singh is now performing the managerial role at terminal 3 of Delhi Airport, as General Manager (Commercial), Air India.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Rediff/TOIHowever, some staunch difference is there. This time, Singh doesn’t have a team of professional hockey players to guide against an opposition team from another country. He has a crowd of Indians returning from abroad, all panic-stricken, fearing for their safety, taking the battle against a virus that has spread its wings across the globe, slowly taking away lives, over 10000 to be exact as of now.However, the former head coach of India’s men’s, women’s and junior field hockey teams has remained unperturbed in his duty. Harendra Singh’s experience from the Indian dugout is clearly working in his favour in the time of woes.Advertisement “The country needs you at this time, just like a soldier or a sportsperson,” a confident Singh spoke to Times of India.“Over the past few days, I and my entire team have even worked for 72 hours non-stop. To save our country, not a single corona-infected patient should enter India. This is our duty,” the former Team India halfback told the reporters.Advertisement The fighting spirit that earned his team a silver medal at the 1990 Asian Games, Singh is positive on the same feeling that is working at the national capital as they are tacking the fight against the contamination of the virus.Singh continued: “We wear masks, suits and use hand sanitises. But I would admit that sometimes you need to summon extra courage to face this situation. Be it a helper, handyman or top management, that fighting spirit is on display here.”The 43 times capped international guided the Junior team to victory at the 2016 Men’s Hockey Junior World Cup. A year later, Singh took on the role of the gaffer of the Women’s team, that clinched gold at the 2017 Women’s Hockey Asia Cup. The Men’s team, under his coaching, went onto win silver at the 2018 Men’s Hockey Champions Trophy, before he was sacked in 2019.Even after a year gap from managing a team of professionals, a confident Harendra Singh in a decontamination suit is what the Delhi airport is relying on.Also read-Will India take part in Tokyo 2020 Olympics if it happens?Read why Dale Steyn wants to be in quarantine with teammate Quinton de Kock!
