first_imgThe ballots in the extra boxes were not really newly discovered, Mr. Sánchez claimed, but had been tagged with some kind of problem during the initial count and were set aside to be reconciled during the tally certification process. In the newly discovered boxes, many uncounted ballots from different precincts were found mixed together “in the wrong place, badly organized,” Mr. Rosado said. But he stressed that none of them had left the elections vault, and their discovery underscored the transparency of the process.It was unclear how many votes the boxes contained, he said at a news conference on Tuesday.- Advertisement – Critics blamed the ruling pro-statehood party, which this year changed the electoral law in fundamental ways that gave Mr. Rosado’s party more control over elections. The New Progressive Party’s representative on the elections council, Héctor J. Sánchez, insisted that the government’s party wanted every last vote counted.All of the opposition parties had agreed on Saturday to stop counting votes, he argued, despite lingering questions about ballots in some races that appeared to be missing.In Puerto Rico, each race is voted on a different ballot, and there were discrepancies in the number of votes cast in some areas.- Advertisement – “There are cases that have three ballots, there are cases that have 500,” he said. On Wednesday morning, he told WKAQ-580 AM radio that it could be between 3,000 and 4,000 votes.“Trust in the transparency of the process,” Mr. Rosado said. “Every vote will be counted.”“Asking that of the country is absurd,” Carmen Yulín Cruz, the outgoing mayor of San Juan, tweeted in response.- Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

(L-R) Melonie Bully-Chambers, Marcia Barry-Smith, Nancy Robin and Barbara Witte. Habitat for Humanity of Broward captured three Non-Profit Awards at the 9th Annual Community Care Plan Non-Profit Award ceremony last month. The event was presented by the Signature Grand in Davie and hosted by 2-1-1 Broward.Marcia Barry-Smith, Director of Community Outreach and Program Services for Habitat Broward, won the “Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lifetime Achievement” award.While, Habitat Broward was awarded with the “Memorial Healthcare System Non-Profit Organization of the Year” award.Additionally, Barbara Witte, Director of Development & Marketing for Habitat Broward, received the “Sanford Institute of Philanthropy National Leadership Institute Development Executive of the Year” award.“Receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award is a huge honor and I am grateful to 2-1-1 and its Leaders for this compliment of my work,” said Barry-Smith. “But it would be foolhardy for anyone to think we can rest on our laurels. There is still so much work to be done in all areas of need within our community.”The Non-Profit Awards honors Broward County’s non-profit organizations and leaders for their dedication and impact on the community.“We are very thankful to 2-1-1 Broward and its many partners and friends. They have helped us shine a much-needed spotlight on the affordable housing crisis in Broward County,” said Nancy Robin, Habitat Broward’s Executive Director and CEO. “Habitat for Humanity of Broward is honored, and we pledge to continue our work with even greater vigor…to make home possible for hard-working families.”Last year, Robert Taylor Jr., Habitat Broward’s Board Chair, won the “Non-Profit Board Leader of the Year” award. Nancy Daly, Habitat Broward Women Build co-chair, won the same award in 2016.“It was such an honor to be recognized by 2-1-1 Broward. I feel very privileged to work with so many kind, caring people who want to make a difference in the lives of our residents,” said Witte. “Broward is an amazing community of philanthropists and there is no way to thank them enough for what they do.”Recently, Barry-Smith and Witte represented Habitat Broward at Habitat on the Hill in D.C. along with Habitat homeowner Jhonson St. Remy. This platform afforded them the opportunity to meet with lawmakers on Capitol Hill to stress the need for affordable housing.Habitat for Humanity advocates for full-funding of the Self-Help Opportunity Program (SHOP) and the Home Investment Partnerships Program (HOME) which provide for land acquisition, home building, repair, down payment assistance and more, specifically for low-income households.last_img read more

first_imgAtlético de Madrid’s triumph on Wednesday against Liverpool at Anfield returned the Atletico team to the Champions League quarterfinals three years later, once it did not reach such an instance of the maximum European competition from the 2016-17 academic year, when he was eliminated in the semifinals of the competition by Real Madrid at Vicente Calderón, on May 10, 2017.Until then, he had always reached at least the quarterfinals under the command of Argentine coach Diego Simeone. In 2013-14 and 2015-16 he reached the final, when he was defeated in the decisive duel by Real Madrid; in 2016-17 until the mentioned semifinals; and in 2014-15 up to the quarters. And since then he had not succeeded in either of the two previous campaigns. It did not do so in 2017-18, the first year of existence of the Wanda Metropolitano. Not even passed the group stageBecause he only won one of his six games (2-0 against Roma at the Madrid stadium). Of the rest he only lost one (1-2 with Chelsea), but tied four (0-0 and 1-1 with Qarabag, 0-0 with Roma and 1-1 with Chelsea); an unacceptable deficit to finish between the first two, especially when two of those tied were against the modest team of Azerbaijan, one of them before their audience. Then, months later, he won the Europa League.He also did not reach the quarters last year, in 2018-19. Second in his group, behind Borussia Dortmund, because he was unable to beat Bruges on the last date (0-0), the rojiblanco team multiplied the complexity of their round of 16 matchup when facing Juventus. Although he won 2-0 at the Metropolitano, in Turin he fell flat against Cristiano Ronaldo with a sonorous 3-0. One swipe.This Wednesday he broke that barrier again, with a 2-3 win in overtime at Anfield against Liverpool, as he has already done on four of the six previous occasions of the Diego Simeone era. With the Argentine coach, who took office in late 2011, Atlético did not miss that appointment in his first four appearances under the command of ‘Cholo’. Neither in 2013-14 nor in 2015-16, when he reached the final and was runner-up, nor in 2016-17, when he reached the semifinals, nor in 2014-15, when he was eliminated in the quarters. Real Madrid beat him in all four.Atlético has played the quarterfinals of the European Cup or the Champions League nine times – ten with which it will play this season – throughout its fifteen participations in the tournament, including the current one, in its history.Of these, in six he advanced to at least the semifinals. In three he even went further, to the final, in 1973-74, 2013-14 and 2015-16. He was runner-up in all three, in the first in the tiebreaker game against Bayern Munich and in the following two in overtime and penalties, respectively, against Real Madrid. And in three others, he passed fourths and stayed in the penultimate round: in 2016-17 and 1958-59, against Real Madrid, and in 1970-71 against Ajax.Instead, in the remaining three he was eliminated in the quarterfinals: in 2014-15, by Real Madrid; in 1996-97, by Ajax, and in 1977-78, by Bruges.– Atlético’s record in the European Cup:2019-20:?2018-19: Round of 16.
