Senior College Democrat appears on Hannity show

first_imgSenior Adam Newman represented Notre Dame’s College Democrats in a Sept. 6 episode of Fox News host Sean Hannity’s primetime show. Newman (Editor’s Note: Newman is a Viewpoint columnist.) said the Hannity show assembled a group of seven Republican and seven Democrat college students from schools across the country to discuss current issues. “Fox flew me out to New York, put me in a hotel in Times Square, had a driver to the hotel, a driver to the airport on the way home,” Newman said. “It was all inclusive, essentially.” For the debate, the students sat in three rows of chairs while Hannity posed questions about current events and called on certain students to answer. Newman said the students had received a list of 10 potential questions before the show, but they were not reflective of the questions Hannity actually asked. “Sean did not go by those at all,” he said. “[There was] no talk of foreign policy. It was more debt and deficits. I’d say a lot of the issues were covered, but not in the way they represented it … Them giving me those questions didn’t help at all.” Newman said he prepared beyond the scope of the questions he received to make sure he was ready for the debate. “This was an opportunity that many people would kill for, and I wanted to know leading up to it that I had done my best to prepare,” he said. “Even though we’re only talking about a three or four minute segment of me talking … [I did] a lot of fact checking, I watched a lot of his tape. I wrote out talking points for almost every issue, and it was definitely worth it.” Newman said he caught Hannity, a staunch conservative, off guard a couple times, but his favorite moments were edited out of the show. “[Hannity] took out parts that didn’t make him look good … It was an opportunity of a lifetime, and I think I did very well,” he said. “However, they did edit me out, and this is going to come across as egotistical, but they did edit me out because I did a very good job.” In the episode as it aired, Newman spoke about taxes and health care, but in an unaired segment, Newman said Hannity called him a Marxist after he expressed moderate agreement with a quote from Karl Marx. “He said, ‘You’re a communist, Adam, you’re a communist,’” Newman said. “I said, ‘Sean, I know what you do on this show, you call people names. I’m a moderate Democrat. I am not a Communist.’ At the time I wasn’t that affected by it. I don’t really care what he says. But after talking to my parents about it, it was interesting because I know that being called a Communist has a much different connotation for our parents’ age than for our age.” Newman said Hannity came off as a “bully” toward the students who appeared on his show. “These are college students. They’re younger. They’ve never been on TV before, and he went after them,” he said. “He was trying to embarrass them. He was trying to condescend them. He was picking on them, on the weaker ones … This is the Hannity I’m used to. I didn’t expect anything different, but for some people he did come off very rudely.” Newman said he expected Hannity to be friendlier in the green room before the show, but was surprised at his choice of conversation topic. “I know who he is on TV, and I would’ve thought that beforehand he would’ve been like, ‘How’s school going? What did you do this summer? What do you have going on this semester?’” he said. “He was right away like, ‘You’re a Democrat from Notre Dame. What’s going on with you, man? I didn’t know there were Democrats at Notre Dame.’ He was really going after me right away.” Despite Hannity’s argumentative tone, Newman said he is proud of his performance on the show and is grateful for the opportunity to defend his beliefs. “Thanks to College [Democrats’] leadership for putting me out there. They trust me enough to do this,” he said. “They were very kind and trusting, and I’m so thankful for their faith in me.” Clips from Newman’s appearance are available on foxnews.com.last_img read more

Wage subsidy may continue into next year, minister says

first_imgSome 15.7 million workers earning less than Rp 5 million (US$339.6) and who are registered with the Workers Social Security Agency (BPJS Ketenagakerjaan) will receive Rp 600,000 in monthly assistance over four months. The government has allocated Rp 37.7 trillion from the state budget for the program.The government started the cash aid disbursement last week as part of its latest measure to boost consumer spending. It had transferred the aid to 1.9 million workers as of Wednesday, according to Manpower Minister Ida Fauziyah as reported by kompas.com.The government has allocated Rp 695.2 trillion in stimulus to jack up the economy, which is expected to shrink by 1.1 percent at worst or grow by 0.2 percent at best this year, marking the worst economic performance since the 1998 Asian financial crisis.The economy contracted 5.32 percent in the second quarter as household spending, which accounts for more than half of Indonesia’s gross domestic product (GDP), shrank by 5.51 percent.Despite the falling consumer spending, the government had only disbursed around 28 percent of the stimulus as of Sept. 2, five months after the start of the outbreak, as red tape and a lack of citizens’ data held up the release of the much-needed assistance.Topics : The government’s wage subsidy program may continue into next year as the government works to boost people’s purchasing power and stimulate consumer demand, State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) Minister Erick Thohir said on Wednesday.“We are hoping that if the program turns out to be effective, we can continue it [next year]. But the decision now is that the program will run until December,” he told reporters on Wednesday.The government will transfer the cash aid for millions of workers in September or October, as well as in November or December, he went on to say.last_img read more

El Gobernador anuncia la reapertura limitada de las actividades recreativas al aire libre en todo el estado para ayudar a los residentes de Pennsylvania a mantener una salud mental y física positivas

first_img Español,  Press Release,  Public Health Con el fin de garantizar que los residentes de Pennsylvania tengan oportunidades de disfrutar de la recreación al aire libre de manera segura como una forma de mantener una salud física y mental positivas, y conforme a las órdenes estatales de quedarse en casa para mitigar la propagación de la COVID-19, el Gobernador Tom Wolf anunció hoy que la Administración Wolf está levantando algunas restricciones a las empresas relacionadas con ciertas actividades al aire libre.A partir del viernes 1 de mayo, los campos de golf, las marinas, los viajes de pesca guiados y los campamentos de propiedad privada pueden reabrir en todo el estado. Se les exige que cumplan con la guía de soporte vital para empresas y con las preguntas frecuentes publicadas por la Administración Wolf que incluyen información específica sobre la manera en que estas industrias recreativas al aire libre pueden reanudar sus actividades al tiempo que se prioriza la salud y la seguridad públicas. Los campamentos en los parques estatales permanecerán cerrados hasta el jueves 14 de mayo.“Los residentes de Pennsylvania se han mantenido resilientes a lo largo de esta crisis de la COVID-19. A medida que continuamos aplanando la curva con éxito para proteger nuestra salud física, es crucial que también nos centremos en nuestra salud física y mental durante estos tiempos sin precedentes. A medida que el clima se torna más cálido y los días se alargan por la luz del sol, disfrutar tiempo al aire libre es una manera importante de controlar el estrés”, dijo Wolf. “A medida que comenzamos a dar pasos medidos y limitados para reabrir nuestro estado, la reapertura de estas industrias ayudará a reconstruir nuestra economía y fortalecer nuestra salud mental”.Según un estudio reciente de la Kaiser Family Foundation, cerca de la mitad (45%) de los adultos en los Estados Unidos informaron que su salud mental se ha visto afectada negativamente debido a la preocupación y el estrés entorno a la COVID-19 con la posibilidad de que la carga probablemente continúe incluso cuando la amenaza de la pandemia disminuya.Los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC) publicaron guías sobre las visitas a parques y centros recreativos. Las empresas deben seguir estas guías en todo el estado y al realizar actividades al aire libre mientras la declaración de desastre estatal siga vigente. Las guías garantizarán la seguridad de las personas y las familias que participan en actividades al aire libre. Cumplir con ellas ayudará a disminuir la propagación de la COVID-19.Quédese cerca de casa: se alienta a los residentes de Pennsylvania a disfrutar de las actividades recreativas al aire libre permitidas dentro de su comunidad y evitar llenar de personas a los destinos populares.Practique el distanciamiento social: mantenga el mínimo recomendado a 6 pies de distancia entre sus compañeros recreacionistas. También se recomienda a los residentes de Pennsylvania el uso de una máscara o una prenda protectora que cubra la nariz y la boca cada vez que salgan. Si el estacionamiento en un parque está lleno o hay demasiadas personas en el mismo sendero, busque un lugar alternativo para recrearse. Cruce la calle para evitar pasar corriendo a otro corredor o espere más tiempo en un hoyo de golf para que un compañero de golf avance.Minimice el riesgo para los demás: las personas solo deben salir si se sienten saludables y no han estado expuestas a alguien que haya dado positivo en la prueba de COVID-19.Practique una buena higiene: lávese las manos con frecuencia con jabón y agua tibia durante 20 segundos. Si no dispone de agua y jabón, use un desinfectante para manos que contenga al menos 60% de alcohol. Evite las superficies que se tocan con frecuencia, como las manijas de puertas y las barandas.Tenga un plan: cree un plan de seguridad antes de salir al aire libre. Explique a los niños la necesidad de mantenerse alejados de los demás, incluso si se encuentran con un amigo mientras están afuera. Discuta con los socios el distanciamiento social mientras está en el campo de golf. Piense en cómo evitar a otros corredores de manera segura cuando esperan para cruzar la calle al mismo tiempo.“Practicar el distanciamiento social requiere un poco de planificación y paciencia, pero es necesario si queremos continuar aplanando la curva al tiempo que aseguramos que los residentes de Pennsylvania tengan oportunidades de desestresarse y hacer ejercicio físico”, dijo Wolf. “Encontrar el equilibrio entre disfrutar al aire libre y mantenerse a salvo solo es posible cuando todos los residentes de Pennsylvania respetan las mismas precauciones. Es crucial que todos los residentes de Pennsylvania cumplan con las guías de seguridad para permitir que estas actividades al aire libre sigan estando disponibles para el público”.Para obtener la información más actualizada sobre la COVID-19, visite on.pa.gov/coronavirus.Ver esta página en inglés.

Newcastle’s  takeover £300m Saudi deal stalls indefinitely

first_imgNewcastle are planning for next season under Mike Ashley and Bruce, with the proposed £300m deal unlikely to be waved through. The Premier League are believed to be standing alongside its major £500m overseas rights holder beIN Sports. They were last week slapped with a permanent ban by a Saudi court from broadcasting in the country – hugely inflaming the situation. The ban was passed in direct contradiction to Premier League chief exec Richard Masters saying in June that the Saudis had to “respond positively to the situation and allow sports rights holders to protect their rights”. Wimbledon, the ECB and the FA, all massive UK exports, all now concerned that their sports have also been illegally banned from broadcast in Saudi Arabia, via beIN, which is a concern to the Department of Trade. The Public Investment Fund trying to buy Newcastle is state owned and chaired by ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. They will have to come up with a change of approach and a more plausible way of passing the owners and directors test, or the Premier League are unlikely to make an announcement in their favour soon. Bruce pleaded this week: “I’ve said many times now we need some clarity on it and to see what the decision is. Up until that time I’ll just go to work, see the CEO at the end of the week and plan for the summer and what we can do with what we have. “It’s frustrating for everyone concerned so let’s hope there’s a decision very, very shortly.” Loading… There is currently no legal way of watching the Premier League in Saudi Arabia. Premier League clubs have privately expressed concern that the value of their overseas rights, their income, is being eroded. Sources claim there is no chance of the Premier League carving out the Saudi market for an individual national deal. A Saudi-based piracy operation, beoutQ, illegally broadcast the Premier League through 3m set-top boxes for almost three years. The Premier League legal department were denied access to justice in their courts nine times, and eventually, a WTO report ruled the nation had done nothing to stop the theft. read also:Kane scores 201st club goal as Spurs win at Newcastle The Premier League is being asked to approve the Saudi PIF as suitable owners, and allow the state investment fund to become a shareholder in the league they stole from. Newcastle’s confirmed Fun888 – an online gambling and casino business – will continue as their main shirt sponsor next season on Monday. Gambling is illegal in Saudi Arabia. Bruce has talks planned for this week ahead for the transfer window opening, and the future of his loan players will be sorted out, as Lee Charnley continues to run the club for Sports Direct tycoon Ashley.
