By Carolina Valladares/Voice of America (VOA) May 08, 2020 In an interview with Voice of America, Mauricio Claver-Carone, senior director of the National Security Council Office for Western Hemisphere Affairs, urged Nicolás Maduro to seriously consider the plan presented by the government of U.S. President Donald Trump to create a transitional government.Neither Maduro nor Interim President Juan Guaidó will be part of this plan.Claver-Carone, who is also a security adviser for Trump, said that the White House’s proposal is “too generous” and warned Maduro that “no one who confronts the American legal system fares well.” On March 26, U.S. Attorney General William Barr filed formal charges against the Venezuelan leader for narcoterrorism, narcotrafficking, and corruption.Carolina Valladares, VOA: Are the United States’ latest moves in the region, including announcing an increased military presence, a sign that the U.S. is losing patience with Venezuela?Mauricio Claver-Carone, adviser to U.S. President Donald Trump for Western Hemisphere Affairs: Undoubtedly, we currently see a regime with a leader who has basically usurped the powers of a state and put them at the service of narcoterrorism. We haven’t seen this since the 1980s, with Manuel Noriega in Panama, which creates a situation where we take seriously this risk to our neighbors, our partners, the region, and obviously to U.S. citizens.Valladares: Maduro said he rejects the U.S. offer. What are Trump’s alternatives now, regarding Venezuela?Claver-Carone: We’ve been very patient. Obviously, the pressure increased drastically in January 2019. The initiative offered now is generous, I think maybe too generous, so he should consider it very carefully. It’s time for common sense to prevail. They should study this opportunity closely, because opportunities like this are not always available. Nicolás Maduro probably regrets missing all the opportunities that he had three to six months ago, and we don’t want him in three or six months’ time to regret not seizing this opportunity. Let him take his time, not too much time, but I hope he uses his common sense. This is not the time to see who is more macho. It’s time to see what is best for his country and for the people of Venezuela.Valladares: You’ve used legal means, pressing charges against Maduro for narcotrafficking; diplomatic means, with proposals for dialogue; and economic means, with sanctions. What would a military approach be like?Claver-Carone: Ultimately, we’re not operating at a one hundred percent capacity of the high-pressure efforts we began in January 2019. We don’t want to reach maximum, pressure. We would like to follow a process, which is now at 60 to 70 percent, to enable a democratic and peaceful transition. This opportunity still exists, and it’s what I would like to see executed. I think they have this initiative on the table; they have the mechanism on the table, and they should take advantage of it.Valladares: The United States has offered a process for talks in which Guaidó and Maduro would not participate in. Does this mean the strategy to support Guaidó has failed?Claver-Carone: Quite the contrary. We’ve reached this situation because of Juan Guaidó’s international leadership and Nicolás Maduro’s crisis. Now with the coronavirus outbreak, the international community is willing to help with easily more than $2 billion, which is what Guaidó said he needed. But it recognizes Juan Guaidó’s government, not Nicolás Maduro’s narco-dictatorship.
It took getting to 13-1 for the Marcellus girls basketball team to finally crack the state Class B rankings, entering last week at the no. 18 spot, though still behind three other Section III sides -South Jefferson, Bishop Grimes and Oneida.With a chance to improve upon that mark, the Mustangs traveled to Hannibal last Thursday and again was quite impressive, cruising to a 57-30 win over the Warriors.An airtight defense produced a 29-15 halftime edge. Then Marcellus closed 15-5, led by Katie MacLachlan, who put in 15 points.Sarah Fallon earned 11 points, while Hannah Durand, Hannah Rogalia and Sam Wynne each finished with eight points.Not to be forgotten in the Class B picture, Westhill gained a major shot of confidence last Tuesday night when it pulled away late to defeat its neighbors from Bishop Ludden 56-45 for its fifth win in a row.Though it never trailed after the game’s opening minutes, the Warriors saw the Gaelic Knights keep up with them throughout the first three periods.Led by Amarah Streiff (16 points) and Lauren Petrie (15 points), Ludden matched baskets with Westhill and only trailed by three, 40-37, going into the fourth quarter.But then the Warriors held the Gaelic Knights without a field goal for nearly seven minutes as it put together a decisive 13-2 run, with Catherine Dadey and Jenna Larrabee at the forefront.Dadey hit on three 3-pointers early and a series of baskets late to finish with 22 points, adding seven assists. Larrabee nearly had a triple-double, augmenting her 21 points with 13 rebounds and eight blocks as Erica Gangemi got nine points.Perhaps that disappointment for Ludden carried over because it lost again to Central Square 48-36 a day later, but recovered on Friday for a big 54-47 win over Bishop Grimes.Much of that was due to Streiff, the freshman forward earning 31 points on everything from rebound baskets to a pair of 3-pointers.Ludden took the lead for good when it went on an 8-0 run late in the second quarter to break a 20-20 tie. With Streiff netting nine points in the third quarter, the Gaelic Knights built a 39-26 advantage.That cushion was needed, since Grimes would increase its pressure and whittle that deficit to single digits, but get no closer than five in the final seconds of the game.Then it turned around again for Ludden on Sunday as it lost, 52-47, to Christian Brothers Academy in the Pathfinder Bank Zebra Classic at Onondaga Community College’s Allyn Hall.The Brothers led by as much as eight in the first half and was up 23-18 at the break. Helped by key 3-pointers from Leanna Heitmann, CBA extended its margin to 38-26 late in the third quarter, and would need that cushion.Cold from the field most of the way, Ludden finally started to hit some 3-pointers in the final period, and got the margin down to 49-44 with a 3-pointer in the final minute to pull within two that clanged off the rim.Ultimately, CBA senior Brooke Jarvis put the game away with a series of late free throws. Of her 19 points, 12 of them came in the fourth quarter as Streiff had 16 points, with Petrie getting 11 points and Keiara Odune nine points.As for Jordan-Elbridge, it still was in search of its first win of the season as it took on Camden Jan. 18 and lost 55-33 to the Blue Devils. Ashlee Eaton got nine points, while Mollie Yard had seven points and Kyler Langhorn earned six points.J-E fell to Pulaski 45-33 last Tuesday as Yard this time led the way with 11 points. Then a 47-37 defeat to Canastota followed, Yard earning nine points as Eaton and Langhorn had eight points apiece, and it lost 56-47 to Camden Saturday.Solvay ran into Chittenango last Tuesday night and lost 64-38 to the Bears, who got 22 points from Sarah Lanphear. Ryleigh Bidwell had 15 points and five rebounds to pace the Bearcats as Tazz Pitts got nine points.Skaneateles was close for a quarter against Cazenovia last Thursday but was held to just eight points in the last three quarters of a 37-19 defeat in this Laker clash at Buckley Gym.Maeve Canty had seven points overall as Cazenovia’s Harvard-bound senior forward, Lindsey Lawson, had 20 points. Skaneateles fell to 4-9 overall.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: Bishop Luddengirls basketballMarcellusWesthill

Athlon SportsAthlon Sports has ranked every college football coach, No. 1 to No. 128, ahead of the 2016 season. You can view the full list here. The top of the list is what most people care about, though, and inside Athlon Sports’ top 10, there aren’t too many surprises. The biggest “surprise” is probably that there is only one SEC coach in the top 10, but there isn’t a clear SEC coach slight.

MONTREAL – Quebecers won’t get a break on already low hydroelectricity rates but a massive export deal with Massachusetts will give the public utility flexibility to keep increases below inflation, Hydro-Quebec’s CEO said Friday.“It relieves some pressure,” Eric Martel said at a news conference. “It gives us a certain flexibility for things to come.”The biggest export contract in Hydro-Quebec’s history, run by Hydro-Quebec and U.S. partner Eversource Energy, would bring up to 9.45 terawatt hours of electricity per year from Quebec’s hydroelectric plants to Massachusetts.Hydro-Quebec promised several years ago to keep domestic power rates below inflation and to increase the utility’s profitability.It kept the rate promise over the last three years with annual increases of 0.7 per cent while the $10-billion deal over 20 years with the New England state will generate higher returns, he told reporters.Martel wouldn’t provide the rate Massachusetts would pay but said it is above the three cents per kilowatthour cost to produce and transport the energy.He told reporters Friday that the contract will be profitable, largely because electricity prices are stable and it already has the available production capacity.That’s good news for all Quebecers because the government will receive a larger dividend from the Crown corporation, added Energy Minister Pierre Moreau.“Whenever the profit goes up it’s good news for the shareholders, which is the government of Quebec and basically all Quebecers,” he added.The contract expected to be signed in March could generate up to $500 million in annual revenues for Hydro-Quebec.In 2016, Hydro-Quebec’s exports represented $803 million of its $2.86-billion profit.The contract will also help the utility achieve its goal of doubling revenues to about $27 billion by 2030.Massachusetts officially selected Northern Pass on Thursday out of 46 submissions presented to the state last year, including six by Hydro-Quebec and partners.The project has faced intense opposition in New Hampshire, but Moreau and Martel said that has mostly been resolved after Hydro-Quebec and Evercore agreed to put more than 100 km of the transmission line underground in environmentally sensitive areas.“Social acceptability is always a challenge for that kind of project but now it seems that it’s not a problem anymore,” said Moreau.Despite the size of the deal, Martel said Hydro-Quebec still has room for one or possibly two more deals of such size.He said the contract could put pressure on neighbouring jurisdictions like New York and Ontario to decide if they want more of the province’s hydroelectricity.“The impact of this signature will stimulate people because it’s sure that our energy capacity isn’t infinite.”Ontario currently has a surplus of power but could use Quebec’s clean power to replace other sources along its current interprovincial transmission line, Martel said.He said there is a risk for Ontario if it waits too long to decide but Moreau said in an interview that he believes Quebec has the capacity “to answer their needs.”Even though the project received approval from former president Barack Obama, Martel doesn’t foresee any objections from the current administration because the $2 billion that will be spent in the United States will create thousands of engineering and construction jobs.Spending in Quebec is forecast to be more than $680 million.“The president is very favourable to infrastructure investments and this is a significant investment in infrastructure.”The project still needs to be approved by New Hampshire as well as by Canada’s National Energy Board. Construction of the line is expected to start this fall with electricity flowing in 2020.Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter.
Anthony Bourdain’s culinary passions went far beyond the cuisine he put on a plate. He also was committed to the immigrant workers who toil in his and other kitchens throughout the restaurant industry.Bourdain, who died Friday in France in an apparent suicide at age 61, was an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump’s immigration policies and a fierce defender of Hispanic workers.The chef, global traveller and author, whose popularity grew with his CNN series “Parts Unknown,” often was the first to tip his hat to his employees from Central America or Mexico. He promoted his Mexican-born sous chef, the late Carlos Llaguno Garcia, to run two of his New York restaurants and complained loudly about the United States’ “ridiculously hypocritical attitudes” toward immigration.“Some, of course, like to claim that Mexicans are stealing American jobs,” Bourdain said in 2014. “But in two decades as a chef and employer, I never had one American kid walk in my door and apply for a dishwashing job, a porter’s position or even a job as prep cook.”During the 2016 presidential campaign season, Bourdain slammed Trump’s promises to deport immigrants in the U.S. illegally and build a wall along the Mexican border.“If Mr. Trump deports 11 million people or whatever he’s talking about right now, every restaurant in America would shut down,” Bourdain said in an interview with SiriusXM radio.Trump has said the wall is needed to keep immigrants and drugs out of the U.S. and his policies are designed to keep the country safe.Julian Medina, the owner of eight Mexican restaurants in New York, said he and Bourdain crossed paths a few times at industry events.“The Latino community was very important to him because in the kitchens of New York there are many Latinos,” Medina said. “He supported that because he always worked beside a Latino and put Carlos in charge of his kitchen.”Saul Montiel, executive chef at the Mexican restaurant Cantina Roof Top in Manhattan, said Garcia, who died of cancer in 2015, always spoke highly of Bourdain. For an episode of Bourdain’s Travel Channel show, “No Reservations,” Garcia gave Bourdain a tour of his hometown, Puebla. Bourdain claimed all the best cooks in his New York restaurants came from there.Montiel, who started in the business washing dishes 15 years ago, said Bourdain was “one of the few chefs that valued the work of the Latinos in the kitchen.”“There are many chefs,” he said, “that never recognize the hard work of the Hispanics.”Mel Mecinas, an executive chef in Scottsdale, Arizona, who was born in Oaxaca, Mexico, remembers when Bourdain featured his home state on “Parts Unknown.” He liked that Bourdain went to smaller villages and wasn’t afraid to sit on the floor and eat, sampling traditional dishes such as tamales with mole negro sauce wrapped in banana leaves instead of corn husks.“When he goes somewhere, he always finds the place where he can find the root of the culture,” Mecinas said. “I was so impressed about how down-to-earth he is and his sense of humour.”Occasionally, Bourdain’s penchant to spotlight minorities attracted a backlash. Last year, a blogger accused him of banning white chefs from getting exposure on a “Parts Unknown” episode on Houston’s culinary scene. Bourdain responded on Twitter, calling it “shameful, dishonest race-baiting click bait.”Latinos weren’t the only minority group that embraced Bourdain. Jason Wang, CEO of Xi’an Famous Foods in New York, planned to donate profits at all its locations on Friday to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.In a Facebook post, Wang said Bourdain’s impact on his family’s Chinese street food business was immeasurable. In 2007, Bourdain endorsed the Wangs’ basement food stall, which served lamb noodle soup with hand-ripped noodles on “No Reservations.”The bump in business was swift. Wang and his father gradually went from that stall to six eateries. In 2015, Wang had the chance to relay his gratitude in person.“I looked at him in the eyes and said, ‘this is something we will always be thankful for Tony,’” Wang wrote. “And he simply replied, ‘I’m just calling out good food like it is, that’s all.’”___Associated Press writer Claudia Torrens in New York contributed to this report.
