CIDH realizó audiencia sobre transgresión de derechos humanos en Cuba

CIDH realizó audiencia sobre transgresión de derechos humanos en Cuba

En Cuba un grupo de activistas y periodistas realizaron una audiencia abierta sobre la transgresión de derechos humanos en la isla caribeña con motivo al 173 Período de Sesiones de la Comisión Interamericana de Derechos Humanos (CIDH).

Por Redacción Miami Diario

Debido a que la dictadura cubana sigue violando los derechos humanos de los ciudadanos de la isla, algunos de los participantes de la audiencia conversaron con radiotelevisionmarti.com.

La jurista del grupo Cubalex, Laritza Diversent, habló  sobre la importancia de sensibilizar a los comisionados sobre la situación real de los derechos humanos en Cuba debido a que «en la región hay una versión utópica de lo que es la Revolución Cubana».

Laritza Diversent

Agregó la abogada que en Cuba el régimen no ha realizado ninguna acción para que se establezcan los derechos de las minorías o se combata la discriminación racial.

Entre los argumentos que dio Diversent para señalar que el régimen no quiere acabar con la discriminación racial, es que esta situación no está tipificada en el código penal como un delito, por ello los ciudadanos no pueden exigir justicia cuando existe este tipo de situación.

Director de Diario de Cuba, Pablo Díaz

El director de Diario de Cuba, Pablo Díaz, hizo referencia a una de las herramientas de represión más empleada por el régimen de la isla, que es la prohibición de salida del país.

Por su parte el  oficial del Programa Legal del Instituto sobre Raza, Igualdad y Derechos Humanos, ubicado en Washington, Caitlin Kelly, aseveró que en Cuba existe una nueva Carta Magna, pero la violación de los derechos humanos sigue, y además arremeten contra quienes piensan diferente al régimen.

Kelly hizo referencia a los presos de conciencia Eduardo Cardet y el periodista Roberto Jesús Quiñones Haces.

Cofradía de la Negritud, Norberto Mesa Carbonell

El representante de la Cofradía de la Negritud, Norberto Mesa Carbonell, conversó sobre el acoso que tienen las actividades pacíficas que organiza su grupo, además de la prohibición al derecho de reunión y las detenciones arbitrarias para evitar que las personas se pronuncien.

El integrante de la revista digital Tremenda Nota, Carlos Alejandro Rodríguez,  habló sobre el hostigamiento y la persecución que sufren los periodistas para realizar su labor en Cuba. Hizo referencia a los portales digitales informativos independientes que son bloqueados por la dictadura cubana.

Motivational speaker Grant Cardone raises $50M for multifamily fund via crowdfunding

Motivational speaker Grant Cardone raises $50M for multifamily fund via crowdfunding

Grant Cardone and 10X Living at Sawgrass

Motivational speaker and real estate investor Grant Cardone encourages his followers to “10X” their businesses, incomes and lives. Now, time will tell if the average investor in his real estate funds will 10X his or her investment.

Cardone Capital’s $50 million Cardone Equity Fund V is oversubscribed and closed as of Friday, said Susan Schieman, chief financial officer of Cardone Capital. The fund launched in January and was aimed at non-accredited investors — defined as those who have a net worth of under $1 million. The minimum investment was $5,000, Brian H. Robb, chief marketing officer, said.

Robb said the firm is reaching out to potential investors via email and social media, including through a large Instagram following and on LinkedIn. The goal has been to attract people who wouldn’t normally invest in traditional real estate funds.

At the same time, Cardone Capital has been raising money from accredited investors for Cardone Equity Fund IV. Both funds have parallel investments in five multifamily properties, most of which are in South Florida.

Fund IV, a $125 million fund, may close once it reaches about $105 million, which could happen next month, Schieman said.

“Every day we’re bringing in two to three hundred leads,” for both funds, Robb said. “From there we’re probably raising from $750,000 to $1.3 million per day.”

Cardone will purchase the properties himself and then bring in the funds. He’s reportedly known for not accepting everyone’s money, and insists on investors who “love the idea of investing in real estate” and have a good attitude, according to the release. Distributions are made monthly.

Grant Cardone and the two funds have invested in the following properties:

  • 10X Living Delray, a 346-unit complex at 14050 Pacific Point Place in Delray Beach.
  • Stella at Riverstone, a 351-unit apartment community at 4711 LJ Parkway in Sugar Land, Texas, outside of Houston.
  • 10X Living at Sawgrass, a 501-unit complex at 2903 Northwest 130th Avenue, just north of the Sawgrass Mills shopping center in Sunrise, Florida.
  • 10X Living at Naples, a 456-unit community.
  • 10X Living at Breakfast Point, a 360-unit complex in Panama City Beach.

Cardone, founder and CEO of Cardone Enterprises and a best-selling author, operates a $1.2 billion property portfolio.

Co-working rivals are cashing in on WeWork’s struggles. Flex-space company Knotel, co-working startup Industrious and meeting-space company Convene have all raised funds over the past month amid WeWork’s IPO woes, in part by highlighting the differences between themselves and the SoftBank-backed giant. In particular, firms often point out that their partnerships with landlords will better protect them in a downturn. [WSJ]

The WeWork IPO is just the latest in SoftBank’s long list of problems. SoftBank-backed companies including Uber, its Chinese rival Didi Chuxing, Slack and cancer-test company Guardant Health are all likely to be marked down in the firm’s third-quarter reporting. The odd structure of Softbank’s Vision Fund — in which 40 percent of the capital comes in the form of debt-like preferred stock — poses greater risks in a downturn, and Masayoshi Son’s firm recently took out an unusual three-year loan to pay back its investors, using its stakes in Uber and Guardant as collateral. [WSJ]

Realizan demanda colectiva contra Penn Dutch Food Centers

Realizan demanda colectiva contra Penn Dutch Food Centers

Presentan una demanda colectiva contra Penn Dutch Food Centers después de que la compañía cerrara sus dos tiendas en Hollywood y Margate.

Por Redacción MiamiDiario

Este lunes Lionel Fleming, quien trabajó en la recepción en ambas tiendas desde 2012, colocó su demanda en la corte federal del condado de Broward. a través de su abogado Richard Celler

«A la luz de las inspecciones sanitarias previas y de las preocupaciones planteadas, todos los problemas que resultaron en el cierre de la planta deberían haber sido previsibles para Penn Dutch», dijo Celler.

«En cambio, parece que Penn Dutch, sin proporcionar las notificaciones de despido que la Ley WARN exige a los empleadores, sacó a cientos de empleados dedicados y leales, y cerró las plantas sin previo aviso o dirección, dejando a sus empleados para que se peleen sobre cómo pagar sus cuentas y alimentar a sus familias.

El abogado argumentó que «los empleados también han reportado que sus cheques de pago por horas previamente trabajadas también están pendientes. En la medida en que el pago oportuno y apropiado por las horas trabajadas no sea compensado, también perseguiremos esos reclamos».

El Penn Dutch Food Center en Hollywood cerró permanentemente tras permanecer abierta durante 44 años.

Dolphins recibieron una paliza en su visita a Cowboys

Dolphins recibieron una paliza en su visita a Cowboys

Aunque la primera mitad del juego no fue muy sencilla, los Cowboys encontraron la manera de darle la vuelta a las cosas en el tercer cuarto y terminaron ganando sin muchos problemas a unos Dolphins que se vieron un poco mejor con Josh Rosen en los controles.

Por redacción MiamiDiario

Muchos coaches dirán una y otra vez que el football es el resultado de todos los pequeños detalles que se hacen o dejan de hacer en un encuentro. Este partido es el perfecto ejemplo de cómo esas pequeñas cosas fueron acabando con las aspiraciones de Miami, según ESPN.

En su primera serie ofensiva los Dolphins se colocaron en posición de conectar un gol de campo, pero el balón se fue de lado.

Luego Dallas se metió hasta zona roja y la defensiva dejó ir una intercepción que hubiera dejado a los Cowboys en cero. En lugar de eso, Brett Maher conectó un gol de campo que puso el 3-0 inicial.

Luego vino la intercepción a Dak Prescott que no trajo puntos, el pase de Rosen que no se atrapó en la zona de anotación (y que por alguna razón decidieron no retar) y el más grande de todos los errores: el balón suelto de Kenyan Drake en una serie que podría haber cambiado las cosas para los Dolphins.

De hecho en la primera mitad los Dolphins entraron a zona roja de Dallas tres veces, y de esos viajes los resultados fueron poco favorables: dos goles de campo y un fumble. Cuando se cometen tantos errores no se puede ganar un partido, y eso es precisamente lo que le pasó a Miami.

Los Cowboys, por su parte, hicieron lo mismo que hicieron ante los Redskins: fueron pacientes, no se dejaron llevar por la presión que ponían sus rivales y fueron dominando la línea de golpeo poco a poco.

La segunda mitad vio como la ofensiva anotó 21 puntos sin respuesta, todo gracias a esa paciencia que volvieron a demostrar.
