Photo of Syracuse police without masks causing police chief to speak out

first_imgOfficials say the photo in question was taken at the scene of a crash Thursday. Syracuse police officers and Onondaga County deputies appear in the photo. Police Chief Kenton Buckner says the photo is under investigation. The issue is following Governor Andrew Cuomo’s announcement limiting indoor and outdoor gatherings in the state to 10 people. Chief Buckner said, “I’m responsible for these 401 police officers. It appears we have not been following our own rules and again, if I can confirm that, there will be consequences for it.” SYRACUSE (WBNG) — A photo of police officers in Syracuse is causing the city’s top cop to speak out because none of the officers pictured are wearing masks while on the job. As COVID-19 cases continue to rise in the state and close to 5,000 new cases and 21 deaths were reported on Wednesday, the photo is causing residents and the Syracuse police chief concern. Chief Buckner said there are 14 officers that currently have the coronavirus. Buckner also said the virus is the number one killer of police.last_img read more

first_imgSanitation, immunization and malnutrition programs risk reduction and closure.Yemen’s health system is already on the brink of collapse, kept going through aid. Cholera, malaria and dengue were rife amid a malnourished population even before the coronavirus outbreak.About 7.8 million children are now out of school, putting them at risk of child labor, recruitment into armed groups and child marriage, UNICEF said.”UNICEF has previously said, and again repeats, that Yemen is the worst place in the world to be a child and it is not getting any better,” Nyanti said.Cases of coronavirus infection reported by Yemeni authorities surpassed 1,000 on Wednesday, but the United Nations says the virus is spreading unmitigated in a country with shattered health systems and infections are likely much higher.

A pledging event this month raised half of what was needed and aid programs impacting millions are set to close in coming weeks.UNICEF is appealing for $461 million for its humanitarian response, which is currently only 39% funded, and $53 million for its COVID-19 response which is only 10% funded.center_img The number of malnourished children in Yemen could rise to 2.4 million by the end of the year due to a big shortfall in humanitarian funding, the United Nations children’s agency UNICEF said on Friday.A UNICEF report warned of a rise of 20% in the number of malnourished children under the age of five – almost half of all of that age in the country.”If we do not receive urgent funding, children will be pushed to the brink of starvation and many will die,” said UNICEF Yemen representative Sara Beysolow Nyanti. “We cannot overstate the scale of this emergency.”last_img read more

He has a car collection worth millions that includes FOUR Rolls Royces and two Bugattis – both worth in excess of £1m each. Money also loves his bling and reportedly spent just under £1m on a diamond-encrusted Hublot watch during a shopping trip in Dubai. And in his own typical style, Mayweather explained that he is living the most comfortable of lives. He added: “My thing is this. This is the truth. “Right now today, I could sit in my house and do nothing for the rest of my life and I would still collect money every week until the casket closed.” 50 Cent was once a valued member of Mayweather’s circle with the pair inseparable. read also:Nigeria boxer, Efe Ajagba joins Floyd Mayweather’s ex-manager But their recent online feud traces back to 2012, when Mayweather was released from prison. Jackson claimed he was owed money by the boxer having taken care of the fighter’s promotional banner. Despite the back and forths between the two, Mayweather said the beef was totally random and he never put a foot wrong with the American artist. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather, has said that 50 Cent fell out with him because he wouldn’t “give him half of his company”. The two global megastars have been at loggerheads since 2012, having previously been great friends. Mayweather has previously said that the fall-out was down to business disagreements. And now, speaking to the Champside podcast, the retired undefeated boxer has elaborated on some of the finer details. Talking about his former friend, the 43-year-old said: “You can’t hang out with me every day for years then all of a sudden if I don’t give you half of my company you’re like ‘you’re dumb, you’re stupid, you can’t do this and you can’t do that’. “But if I can’t do all these things, why are you hanging around with me? That’s all I’m trying to add. “If I’m such a person that doesn’t know certain things, and I’m not that sharp, why you want to be around with me every day.” In February this year rapper 50 Cent claimed that Mayweather needed to return to boxing as he had “run out of money”. Mayweather officially walked away from the ring in 2017 after beating UFC star Conor McGregor in a lucrative crossover bout. 50 Cent – real name Curtis Jackson – told Hot 97: “I think he got to right now because the money’s gone. “It’s the fight, get the money, spend the money, fight. “With the lifestyle that money’s gone. Trust me. Now it’s like if you call him he’ll be at your local nightclub because he needs that action right now.”last_img read more
