first_imgBy Dialogo October 07, 2010 It appears that the Sendero Luminoso group was destroyed, but such is not the case, that light is still lit, the membership of this group multiplies in the hearts of the revolutionaries and one day will reappear. A soldier and a member of the Maoist group Shining Path died in a clash in central Peru, the Armed Forces Joint Command announced Wednesday. As a result of the confrontation, “an unidentified narcoterrorist, who was carrying an AKM rifle and was one of the commanders of the column, was killed,” according to a military statement that indicated that Army Capt. Illich Montesinos also died. The military authorities use the term “narcoterrorist” to identify members of the Shining Path remnant groups that maintain an alliance with gangs of drug traffickers. The confrontation took place Tuesday in the Rondayacu Gorge, an Andean area of the Junín region. Several of the subversives are believed to have been wounded, in light of traces of blood and other evidence found by military personnel, for which reason military operations are continuing, the document indicated. The area where the clash took place, which is under a state of emergency and controlled by the armed forces due to the presence of Shining Path remnants, is a coca-producing area where drug traffickers operate. Shining Path, which was defeated in the mid-1990s, began an internal war in 1980 that ended after two decades with a toll of 70,000 dead and missing, according to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. With their chief leaders captured, only isolated groups currently exist in the central and southeastern Peruvian jungle, and according to the government, they do not represent a danger to the country’s security.last_img read more

The London bout has been postponed indefinitely due to the pandemic and Hearn would be willing to move it to the Middle East if an audience is allowed there.Joshua beat Andy Ruiz to take the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight titles in Saudi Arabia in December.Hearn has already suggested he might stage the clash between Dillian Whyte and Alexander Povetkin in an empty venue, but the financial implications of doing the same with Joshua make it unworkable.“We’re not going to go to AJ and say, mate, there’s £10 million less in the pot – we’ve got to get creative,” Hearn told Boxing Social on Wednesday.“These countries are going to be up and running a lot quicker than our country or America. “Would Saudi (Arabia) or Dubai or Abu Dhabi be ready to stage an event in September or October? I think 100 per cent.“If you can’t get a live gate for the bigger fights we have to look elsewhere and that involves looking at other territories.“Do I really want AJ to box behind closed doors? No. With what he has produced in terms of that live audience, I will be doing everything I can do make sure AJ doesn’t fight behind closed doors.”The British Boxing Board of Control has issued a series of rules for the sport’s prospective domestic return in July, including all shows taking place without fans, and trainers and officials wearing face-masks.Hearn said he broadly accepted the guidelines, which they insist are not necessarily binding, but called it “a very conservative starting-point”.

(AP Photo/Carlos Osorio)ExpandGLENDALE, Ariz. — It isn’t often that the birth of a baseball rule is preserved on video. Such is the beauty of Pat Venditte’s first professional game.Venditte, the Dodgers’ ambidextrous pitcher, was 22 years old when he took the mound on June 19, 2008 for the Staten Island Yankees. When the month began, Venditte was a little-known college pitcher with a novel talent. Soon he would become a YouTube sensation. Accounts of that night’s game against the Brooklyn Cyclones appeared in the major New York papers. The secret of baseball’s only “switch pitcher” was out.Pat McMahon was the Staten Island manager that night. Nearly a decade later, his memory of that warm, clear night on Coney Island remains crisp.“It was a really neat environment, the Yankees against Brooklyn,” McMahon said. “It was a loud, boisterous rivalry game.” Dennis Santana aims to be the Dodgers’ next position player-turned-pitcher The game’s final out has been viewed more than 1.4 million times on YouTube. That’s because Venditte and Brooklyn switch-hitter Ralph Henriquez needed nearly seven minutes to figure out who would get their preferred matchup. Did the pitcher have the final say, or the batter?The fans didn’t seem to know. The broadcasters didn’t know. Critically, neither did home plate umpire Shaylor Smith.Ultimately Smith ordered Henriquez to stand in the right-handed batter’s box. Venditte would be allowed to pitch with his right hand. Henriquez struck out on four pitches, ending the game. It was the last time that Venditte, now 32 and pitching for his fifth organization, had the final say when facing a switch-hitter.“I’m still here pitching,” he said, “so it’s all right.” Kenta Maeda, Kyle Farmer help Dodgers beat Royals The legacy of Venditte’s debut was inevitable. McMahon insists he was firm on the rule before that night, but the protocol wasn’t formalized until afterward, when the Professional Baseball Umpire Corporation consulted with Major League Baseball’s Rules Committee to create the so-called “Pat Venditte Rule.” A switch-pitcher must declare which hand he’s throwing with first, then the batter can step into whichever box he chooses.The consequences played out rather dramatically on Thursday.In the Dodgers’ Cactus League game against the Cleveland Indians, Venditte had the misfortune of facing Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez in the same inning. In retrospect, Venditte said he had never faced two more talented switch hitters in one outing.Lindor, batting left-handed, hit a home run. Ramirez, batting right-handed, flew out to deep center field.Related Articles With one famous exception, Venditte has never enjoyed the advantage over a switch-hitter. Now he merely takes it for granted.“Every time I go into a series, there’s switch-hitters,” Venditte said. “It’s not something I really think about in a negative way. It’s just a way I have to go about facing the hitters. You try to go through things in your head about how you’re going to get those guys out and just be ready for any situation.”McMahon, the Yankees’ director of international player development, believes that Venditte’s debut game offered another lesson that can’t be overlooked. The rookie pitcher had about seven minutes to lose his cool. He never did.After the game, McMahon said, “I brought him in and I wanted him to know how proud I was of him – most of all of the way he handled it in a first-class manner with tremendous principles. It was a huge check of his makeup, his character, and his competitiveness.”ALSODodgers pitcher Kenley Jansen was scratched from his scheduled Cactus League debut when he felt some tightness in his upper right hamstring warming up. Manager Dave Roberts said the injury wasn’t serious and that Jansen would not need an MRI. … Jansen is scheduled to pitch in a “B” game Monday at Camelback Ranch. … Roberts didn’t want to formalize his plans for the season-opening starting rotation, but the Dodgers’ five top starters have already established a predictable order behind opening day starter Clayton Kershaw: Alex Wood, Kenta Maeda, Rich Hill and Hyun-Jin Ryu. “As it stands right now you can read between the lines,” Roberts said. … Utility player Max Muncy suffered a strained oblique and will be down “a few days,” according to the manager.

That’s our job.” Bush volunteered his thoughts on a report on two secret 2005 memos that authorized extreme interrogation tactics against terror suspects. “This government does not torture people,” Bush said. Meanwhile, Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin, D-Mich., demanded a copy of a third Justice Department memo justifying military interrogations of terror suspects held outside the United States. In a letter to Attorney General nominee Michael Mukasey, Levin wrote that two years ago he requested – and was denied – the March 14, 2003, legal opinion. Levin asked if Mukasey would agree to release the opinion if the Senate confirms him as attorney general, and cited what he described as a history of the Justice Department stonewalling Congress. “Such failures and the repeated refusal of (the Department of Justice) to provide Congress with such documents has prevented the Congress from fulfilling its constitutional responsibilities to conduct oversight,” Levin wrote. The White House said Mukasey has not been cleared to read the classified documents Levin requested. The two Justice Department legal opinions from 2005 were disclosed in Thursday’s editions of The New York Times, which reported that the first opinion authorized the use of painful methods, such as head slaps, freezing temperatures and simulated drownings known as waterboarding, in combination.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
