Common pots prepared by neighbors feeding thousands in Peru

first_imgLIMA, Peru (AP) — A survival strategy that first appeared in Peru’s capital four decades ago during the country’s civil conflict has become vital since the coronavirus pandemic arrived in the South American nation. People across the country are cooking in neighborhood “common pots,” banding together to provide to feed children and adults alike. In Lima, Genoveva Satalaya and her neighbors walk through the food markets hoping to find a kind merchant who will donate food to help fill the common pot for their neighborhood. They can prepare lunch only Monday through Friday because there’s not enough food for other meals. Their pot feeds 120 people, including seniors, children and pregnant women.last_img read more


Messi faces £1.1m fine, suspension if…

first_img Loading… It can also lead to what is termed “total suspension”. Messi earns £54m a year at Barca – so a quarter of his monthly wage is just over £1.1m. The six-time Ballon d’Or winner makes around £148,000 a day – so an 11-day fine would equal roughly £1.6m. However, Barca chiefs including Josep Maria Bartomeu are said to be reluctant to punish the club’s greatest ever player. read also:Barcelona table strange condition to let Messi leave for free Messi wants to leave the club but Nou Camp bosses are desperate to keep on good terms with him. Furious Barcelona fans protested against president Bartomeu last week after Messi handed in his transfer request. Club bosses do not want a repeat of those actions – nor those that followed Barca’s unveiling of Francisco Trincao, which turned into another anti-Bartomeu incident. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Lionel Messi is facing a suspension and £1.1million fine for missing Barcelona training as his “free agent” row with the club ignites. The Barcelona superstar did not report to training – nor Sunday’s coronavirus testing for the squad. According to Marca, Messi – who will reportedly be offered a record £450m over five years by Man City – is set to incur “serious penalties” as a result of his actions. Messi, 33, believes he is no longer an employee of the club but Barca chiefs insist he is still the Nou Camp side’s captain. That, according to the report, is in accordance “with the collective agreement of LaLiga and the Association of Spanish Footballers”. Marca reported that the document establishes that a “serious offence can be judged when a player ‘abandons work’ for two occasions without just cause”. Skipping the coronavirus test was one and missing training. Marca claimed a third absence can result in 11 days of his salary being withdrawn or a fine of 25 per cent of his monthly salary.Advertisementcenter_img Promoted Content5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksWho Earns More Than Ronaldo?5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksTop 10 Most Romantic Nations In The WorldThe 18 Most Visited Cities In The WorldCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayThis Guy Photoshopped Himself Into Celeb Pics And It’s HystericalWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?12 Celebrities Who Almost Ruined Their Careers With One Movie6 Great Ancient Mysteries That Make China Worth Visiting7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The World7 Worst Things To Do To Your Phonelast_img read more


Jared Walsh returns to Angels after torrid stretch at Triple-A

first_imgCINCINNATI — Jared Walsh’s hot start at Triple-A earned him his first shot at the major leagues, but when he returned to Triple-A he went from hot to sizzling.It’s no coincidence.Walsh, who on Sunday was recalled for his third stint in the majors this season, said getting a taste at the majors helped him take his game to a higher level.“I think the game slows down a little bit,” Walsh said. “You are up here and you’ve seen the best of the best, then you can go back down and work on stuff to get better and get back up there to help contribute to wins in the big leagues.” Walsh was hitting .301 with a 1.010 OPS at Triple-A before he got his call to the majors in May. Since going back down, he hit .353 with a 1.215 OPS. He hit 13 homers in July alone.He already has 29 homers this season, equaling the career-high he set last year.“Lucky for me every place is Coors Field in the (Pacific Coast League),” Walsh said. “I have been seeing the ball well. Consistent at-bats are huge for me. When I got to go down and play a lot, I think it really helped me.”Walsh said he made a few tweaks in his swing at the urging of hitting coach Jeremy Reed after his first stint in the majors.The challenge now will be getting results at the big league level. Coming into Monday’s game, in which he started at first base, Walsh had hit .235 with no homers in just 36 plate appearances. His stay in the big leagues this time may be not long. At the moment, the Angels can use him because he provides an extra hitter to be used in a National League park, and can also take some stress off the bullpen by pitching.He’s pitched 10 innings this year at Triple-A, allowing three runs. For now, the Angels still view him as a mop- up man more than a reliever to use with the game in the balance.“I love pitching,” Walsh said. “I am still really grateful they are still letting me do it. I think I’ve gotten called up a few times because I have the ability to pitch, so if I can add value to the team as a pitcher or a hitter, I’m happy.”HEANEY UPDATEAndrew Heaney, who is out because of shoulder inflammation was satisfied with how he felt and how he threw during a 64-pitch simulated game on Monday afternoon, perhaps clearing the way for him to return to the rotation this weekend in Boston.Heaney faced Wilfredo Tovar and Luís Rengifo over the equivalent of four innings.Manager Brad Ausmus, who was Heaney’s catcher for the game, also was impressed.“He looked good,” Ausmus said. “Velocity was good. He threw all his pitches for strikes. He felt good. We just have to make sure tomorrow there are no after effects.”ALSOJonathan Lucroy, who was designated for assignment on Friday, cleared waivers. The Angels then requested released waivers, a step toward making him a free agent. …Luke Bard was placed on the injured list with a right triceps contusion, the result of being hit by a 103 mph line drive on Sunday. Bard said he was feeling better, but a little stiff, on Monday. …Patrick Sandoval, who was activated for his major league debut on Monday, took Bard’s spot on the 25-man roster. To clear a spot on the 40-man roster, the Angels moved Félix Peña to the 60-day injured list. Peña is set to have season-ending surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament.UP NEXTAngels (LHP José Suarez, 2-2, 5.66) at Reds (RHP Anthony DeSclafani, 6-6, 4.07), 4:10 p.m., Fox Sports Westcenter_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
