House passes $3 trillion coronavirus stimulus plan, will include new round of payments

first_imgThe House of Representatives passed on a $3 trillion stimulus bill late Friday, which would provide funding for state and local governments, and send a second $1,200 check to most American adults.Democrats passed the bill by a small 208-199 margin despite the opposition from Donald Trump, and Republicans. According to reports, fourteen Democrats opposed the bill, and one Republican voted for the bill.“The HEROES Act is a critical $3 trillion-dollar rescue for our front line workers, cities and states, our small businesses, and it creates the kind of modern day safety net I have been fighting for with so many brave allies in and outside the U.S. Congress,” said Rep. Rosa DeLauro during floor debate on the legislation.House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California called the rescue package a “Democratic political messaging bill” that had “no chance of passing the Senate.”  And the White House has threatened a veto of the bill as currently written.The bill has been criticized heavily by Republicans and declared “dead on arrival” by President Donald Trump.The bill made history as the largest relief package in U.S. history, which includes funding for state and local governments, coronavirus testing, and another distribution of payments to Americans. The rules for the $1,200 payment changed this time around. Single filers would still get $1,200 and $2,400 for joint filers, but filers would also be eligible for $1,200 per dependent, but filers can only claim three dependents for the money, according to Vox. It would also provide stimulus payments to immigrants, an idea that was opposed by the GOP and is not likely to become law.Additionally the bill will include:$200 billion for a “Heroes fund” that would provide “hazard pay” to essential employees such as front-line health care workers, $75 billion to beef up testing, $10 billion for emergency grants to small businesses through the Economic Injury Disaster Loan program,  COBRA subsidies to workers who have lost their health insurance because they’ve been laid off, extension of weekly $600 federal unemployment payments through January and $175 billion to help renters and homeowners make monthly rent, mortgage and utility payments and other housing-related cost.last_img read more

Bundesliga players to face no penalty for anti-racism statements

first_img(BBC) – BORUSSIA Dortmund forward Jadon Sancho and other Bundesliga players will face no further disciplinary action after they made anti-racism statements during matches last weekend.England international Sancho unveiled a ‘Justice for George Floyd’ T-shirt after scoring against Paderborn.Floyd, an unarmed black man, died while being restrained by a white Minneapolis police officer on May 25.Protests have been held across the United States and globally.Sancho’s Dortmund team-mate Achraf Hakimi also wore a ‘Justice for George Floyd’ T-shirt, while Schalke’s Weston McKennie wore a similar armband and Marcus Thuram of Borussia Monchengladbach kneeled in tribute to Floyd after scoring.In a statement, the German Football Association (DFB) said no proceedings would take place against the four players “because of their solidarity and anti-racism statements”.It added: “The panel also intends to maintain this line in the event of renewed anti-racism campaigns to mark the violent death of George Floyd on the coming match days.”FIFA’S rules state that players must not display political statements but president Gianni Infantino said on Tuesday: “For the avoidance of doubt, in a FIFA competition the recent demonstrations of players in Bundesliga matches would deserve an applause and not a punishment.“We all must say no to racism and any form of discrimination.”DFB president Fritz Keller said: “I expressly welcome the far-sighted decision of the DFB control committee and am very happy about it. The DFB is firmly against all forms of racism, discrimination and violence and stands for tolerance, openness and diversity – values ​​that are also in the DFB statutes.“So the actions of the players have our respect and understanding.”Dr Anton Nachreiner, chairman of the DFB control committee, added: “Of course, the DFB control committee always has the requirements of the FIFA football rules and the DFB regulations in mind.“In the specific case, however, these are targeted anti-racism campaigns by the players, which are committed to values ​​for which the DFB also stands and always stands for.”The Football Association said it would take a “common sense approach” to any protests such as those seen in the Bundesliga when English football resumes later this month.last_img read more

Despite club sport status, men’s club soccer finds ways to thrive

first_imgIt is past 10 p.m. on a Thursday night and the sound of cleats striking the grass, the sight of soccer balls arched into the air and the bright lights high in the sky bring Cromwell Field to life.Trevor Sochoki | Daily TrojanThis is the men’s club soccer team, the highest level for male footballers at USC because there is no Division I men’s team at the University. Team members say not many students know about it, and even fewer come to their games, but just playing a sport they love competitively is worth the time.USC used to field a Division I men’s soccer team, but it was removed following the 1980 season and relegated to a club program.“Ever since then, it’s been a real struggle coming back because of Title IX,” said Jonathan Montesdeoca, the Vice President of the club last semester, referring to the 1972 law that assured equal treatment and benefits to NCAA athletes regardless of gender.Men’s soccer wasn’t the only sport that was dropped by USC in the 1980s and 1990s; men’s and women’s gymnastics, men’s rowing, men’s cross country, sailing and skiing were either eliminated or became club sports due to factors including lack of finances, facilities and participation, according to a USC spokesperson.“I definitely wish people paid more attention to us,” Montesdeoca said. “Club sports aren’t really given much attention in general.”As far as club sports go, however, men’s soccer has arguably taken the biggest step forward. Over the summer, the team traveled to Beijing to participate in the inaugural World Elite University Football Tournament, which hosted college teams from around the world for a competition. USC was the only representative from the United States, competing in the “second group” with Oxford, Peking University and Renmin University.The Trojans wound up winning first place in their group, but just participating in the tournament — and being the first club team from USC to compete internationally — warranted acknowledgment.“It’s very significant,” head coach Adam Gootnick said. “I’ve been in this program for six years now, and we’ve never gone internationally or even talked about it. To go international and play and compete on another level and win games is a next step in the process of becoming the best we could possibly become.”Montesdeoca said the team was offered a spot in the tournament “out of the blue,” with the organizers putting together a “cultural exchange event.” In addition to playing in the competition, the team toured Beijing, visiting the Great Wall, the Forbidden Palace and Tiananmen Square.“Beijing was an incredible experience, not only to play in another country but to play in a country on the other side of the world that is so culturally different,” Gootnick said.Ruben España, a senior on the team, also reflected positively on the experience.“As a team, we really bonded and met interesting people over there, guys from different teams, different countries, nationalities,” España said.The team came back from China with another accolade to add to a string of recent successes — between 2011 and 2014, the club soccer team advanced to the semifinals or further in either a regional or national tournament each year. The team competes in the California Collegiate Club Soccer League of the West Coast Soccer Association, with the goal of the fall season being to earn a spot in the Championship Division of the NIRSA National Championships.The team this year consists of 26 players — out of the 90 or so hopefuls who tried out — a mix of players who transferred from Division I, II or III schools and pure walk-ons. Some players had offers from schools where men’s soccer was a varsity sport, but still chose to attend USC.España was in discussions with Amherst College in Massachusetts. Stuart Young, a junior, was in talks with the University of La Verne, which is near Los Angeles. But he chose USC instead, and despite not having the option to play soccer at the varsity level, it was worth it.“This is a very good in-between between [attending a top university] and playing Division I, which is more of a job,” Young said. “They play every day, sometimes twice a day. For us, we get just the right amount, which is 2-3 practices a week. Our team is very close because it’s the right amount of soccer and team bonding. It’s the right environment for our team to grow.”The mix of skilled former recruits with students just looking to play soccer provides an assorted roster for Gootnick, a USC alum in his first season as head coach.“We have a very diverse group of people who come from all different backgrounds, and even some international players, all way from freshman to senior,” Gootnick said. “Everyone adds different value to the team, whether that be personality, focus, left foot or right foot, in the air, offensive or defensive. There’s so many different tools a soccer player can have, and my job as a coach is to utilize them.”Players agree that the experience and the environment make the time spent worthwhile. Still, the downsides of not being a Division I team can be frustrating. The team does not draw well at the few home games it has each season. This year, it has three, but in the past, it had been relegated to one or two. According to Montesdeoca, the team also had to move from playing its games on McAllister Field — home of the Division I women’s soccer team — to the less-preferred turf of Cromwell Field. A spokesperson for the Recreational Club Council, which oversees USC club sports, noted that McAlister Field is run by USC Athletics and that RCC has no control over allocating the field to its clubs.Games have also been canceled due to “scheduling conflicts,” Montesdeoca said. Before one game, the field wasn’t even open, and the team had to call DPS officers to unlock the gates. There, players found that the goals were still locked together and the field lines weren’t clear, forcing them to use cones instead. In another instance, corner flags were missing for a game.“We just want things ready for a game,” Montesdeoca said. “It’s a lack of professionalism.”Stuart added that the issues were “embarrassing” to him.“USC is a very prestigious school,” he said. “When we show up to games and we don’t have corner flags or proper lines set up, it makes us look very amateurish.”The RCC spokesperson said that club sports in general are of low priority for the school administration and there is a lack of “proper resources.”Funding can also be an issue, though Montesdeoca pointed out that the RCC paid for a vast majority of the team’s trip to Beijing in addition to providing contingency funds for new uniforms. They have to collect money and gain attention by relying on sponsorships and other creative means, such as having a portion of the Trojan Marching Band play at a game to attract fans. RCC provides some funding, but overall the financial burden falls on the team. This includes tryout dues and a $360 membership fee — up from $300 from last year, in part to cover uniforms and practice jerseys.Montesdeoca said the ultimate goal for the club is to be a basis for a Division I men’s soccer team, though he has explored other options such as forming a Premier Development League team, which competes in the third-tier of professional soccer in the country.There are more than enough Division I sports to go around at USC, so perhaps the lack of a men’s soccer team goes unnoticed by a majority of students. But the fanfare and attention is not why members of the club team dedicate late nights to practicing; rather, it’s the chance to keep playing the game they love.“The soccer alone is worth it,” España said. “Sure, nobody shows up to our games, but we’re here for the soccer, we’re here for each other and we’re here for the experience. Honestly, this is a great way for us to do what we love, de-stress and just have fun.”Correction: This article previously stated that Jonathan Montesdeoca is the Vice President of the club. He was the Vice President last semester. The Daily Trojan regrets the error.last_img read more

Trojan track enjoys productive weekend at USATF Championships

first_imgKatie Chin | Daily TrojanFlying high · Redshirt sophomore Marquís Morris was one of many USC student-athletes and graduates competing at last week’s USATF Championships in Sacramento, Calif. Morris was a semifinalist in the 110m hurdles, while Trojan alumnus Aleec Harris triumphed in the finals to claim the national title.The USC track program shone at the USA Outdoor Track and Field Championships last week, with both alumni and collegiate stars impressing during the four-day competition in Sacramento, Calif. Former Trojans Dalilah Muhammad and Aleec Harris earned titles in the 400m hurdles and 110m hurdles, respectively, and current Trojans smashed multiple team records.At the meet, five USC runners — four graduates and junior Kendall Ellis — qualified to represent the United States at the IAAF World Championships in August. Ellis will team up with Trojan track greats Muhammad, Harris, Allyson Felix and Nia Ali as they gun for glory in London. Ellis and Felix will both run the 400m, Harris will enter the 110m hurdles and Muhammad will compete in the 400m hurdles.Muhammad earned her second career USA title in the women’s 400m hurdles on the last day of action at Hornet Stadium. The 2016 Olympic gold medalist recorded a personal-best time of 52.64 to win the finals, while Harris topped the men’s 110m hurdles with a time of 13.24.For the current Trojans, Anna Cockrell competed in the women’s 400m hurdles finals and finished eighth overall (55.14), breaking her USC freshman record in the process. Junior Deanna Hill recorded a time of 23.04 to come in sixth in the women’s 200m finals.Numerous USC athletes also starred in the competition’s earlier days. Ellis broke her own all-time school record in the 400m on Friday and repeated the feat Saturday. She trimmed her first time of 50.24 down to 50.00 flat to take third overall and earn a spot on the USA roster. Michael Norman bettered his USC freshman record in the 400m on Saturday, running to finals qualification in 44.60 seconds. The time also elevated Norman to third place on the program’s all-time 400m list.Senior Cameron Pettigrew qualified for the 400m semifinals with a time of 51.74, and junior Ricky Morgan Jr. also advanced on the men’s side after recording a time of 45.47 — just .03 seconds from his personal best.Redshirt sophomore Marquís Morris ran in Harris’ heat in the first round of the 110m hurdles, and he qualified for the semifinals with a 13.73 mark while Harris won the heat. Morris did not advance to the finals, however, settling for 14th overall.After the end of the USATF Championships, Trojan athletes will look forward to rooting on Cockrell at the biennial World Championships, which features more than 200 countries. The United States is the winningest nation in the competition’s history.The IAAF World Championships kick off on Aug. 4 at London Stadium.last_img read more

His 3-point shooting tied Ty Lawson’s mark for shooting percentage for players with at least 10 attempts.“Never hit 10 threes in a row in a game, that’s hard to do,” Thompson said. “I happened to be on one tonight, and I’m happy I was able to do it in front of my family.”“I don’t think the league has seen that,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “Has anybody ever gone 17 for 20 and 10 for 11? Not in that combination … it was spectacular.”“Pretty incredible,” Green said.Kevin Durant shrugged.“Anything Steph (Curry), Klay, Draymond, even (DeMarcus Cousins) do at this point, it’s kind of expected to me,” Durant said. “When he has a big game, I’m just like, ‘All right, let’s move onto the next one, I’m sure he’ll have another one soon.’ It’s still fun to be out there and watch, but at this point, it’s just expected for me.”To Durant’s point, it was Thompson’s fifth career game with double-digit 3-pointers, which ranks behind only Curry’s 12 such games in NBA history. It also was Thompson’s 13th career 40-plus point game.He joked about what Mychal Thompson’s reaction would be when he saw him after chatting with the media: “He’ll probably tell me good job — and you shoulda had 50. Never good enough for your parents, but that’s life.”And — get this, Lakers dreamers — Klay Thompson also mentioned how much Rocco likes staying at his parents’ home: “He likes the sun.”last_img read more
