It threatens the safety of U.S. citizens exercising their constitutionally protected rights of assembly and speech to highlight the everyday injustices the black community faces. Inciting violence is abhorrent, and those who encourage it should be held accountable for their irresponsible actions.” Polo cited two sections from the Rules of the Florida House: You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here The Florida Democratic Party followed with a complaint asking Twitter to “remove this account for violence,” But, as Sabatini tweeted Monday: “@FlaDems — EPIC FAIL in your attempt at censorship! Maybe there still is some hope for @Twitter. Oh — and good luck continuing to defend the THUGS who are beating police officers and burning buildings — not sure that will help you this November!”Sabatini repeatedly has drawn attention for alleged racist behavior and comments. • Rule 15.1: “By personal example and by admonition to colleagues whose behavior may threaten the honor of the lawmaking body, the member shall watchfully guard the responsibility of office and the responsibilities and duties placed on the member by the House. To this end, each member shall be accountable to the House for violations …”• Rule 15.2: “A member shall respect and comply with the law and shall perform at all times in a manner that promotes public confidence in the integrity and independence of the House and of the Legislature. Each member shall perform at all times in a manner that promotes a professional environment in the House …”“Rep. Sabatini’s comments are clearly inflammatory to an already volatile situation, and damaging to the integrity of the Florida House of Representatives,” Polo said. “His behavior is contrary to good order and discipline. It is our responsibility, as written out in our own rules, to admonish him and insist he behave responsibly and with integrity.”Sabatini drew fire from Democrats for Twitter comments Friday in which he said, “Lock up every one of these disgusting, lawless thugs destroying the city of Minneapolis. They should each be arrested and prosecuted to the FULL extent of the law. Shame on the politicians that pander to this destruction!”Rep. Shevrin Jones, D-West Park, responded by questioning who the “thugs” were.“You mean these thugs, Rep?” Jones asked with a link to Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz saying he suspected white supremacist groups and drug cartels were carrying out some of the violence in Minneapolis. Reply By John Haughey | The Center SquareState Rep.

Following a June 28 march and walk-in organized by the Laundry Workers Center at an East Harlem laundromat, the owners tried to argue that the labor of the workers was not legally protected by wage, hour and other laws. The center immediately planned picket lines and organized a call-in by supporters to let the laundromat owners know the community is watching them. The LWC’s attorneys also notified the company that they would file charges if the owners retaliated against the workers.The LWC has a record of making important gains in its fight for the rights of New York City’s laundromat workers, who are mainly Latinx women immigrants. The center’s quick actions in East Harlem pressured the owners to relent and agree to negotiate “in good faith” with the workers. The company has also begun paying minimum wage and overtime, providing protective gloves and masks, and complying with health and safety laws.“Due to your support, and the courage of the workers,” said the LWC in a message to supporters, “this is a victory for laundromat workers and the community.” The center plans to monitor company actions and keep supporters informed until a final agreement is reached.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

iStock(FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.) — The U.S. Coast Guard has seized millions of dollars’ worth of cocaine and marijuana at a Florida port.“The Coast Guard Cutter James (WMSL-754) crew is scheduled to offload approximately 28,000 pounds of seized cocaine worth an estimated $367 million and approximately 11,000 pounds of seized marijuana worth an estimated $10.1 million at Port Everglades,” according to a press release from the U.S. Coast Guard.The U.S. Coast Guard shared a video on Twitter of the 28,000 pounds of cocaine that was intercepted.“What you see is 19 tons of narcotics seized from 18 separate Coast Guard interdiction events, with a street value worth more than $375 million,” Capt. Jeffrey Randall, Coast Guard Cutter James commanding officer said in a statement. “These drugs will not reach Main Street USA due to the efforts of the James crew and other Coast Guard cutters involved in these interdictions,”Capt. Randall added that the crew worked in cooperation with “regional partner nations, like Columbia, Costa Rica and alongside the agencies involved in Operation Martillo to stop the flow of illegal narcotics into the United States.”As a result, Randall said, “we maintain an offensive against criminal networks and criminal organizations.”The contraband was interdicted in 18 separate operations of suspected drug smuggling vessels in international waters of the Caribbean Basin and Eastern Pacific Ocean off the coasts of Mexico, Central and South America, officials said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Aim: Lanternfish (Myctophidae) are one of the most abundant and ecologically important families of pelagic teleosts, yet how these species will respond to climate change is unclear, especially within polar regions. The aim of this study was to predict the impact of climate change on the distribution of Southern Ocean lanternfish and to relate these predicted responses to species traits.Location: Circumpolar, 35–75°S.Methods: We used MaxEnt ecological niche models to estimate the present and predict the future distributions of 10 biomass‐dominant lanternfish species throughout the region. Future conditions were simulated using eight climate models, in both stabilizing (RCP 4.5) and rising (RCP 8.5) emission scenarios, for the time periods 2006–2055 and 2050–2099. Species responses were then related to their realized thermal niche (i.e., thermal tolerance range), latitudinal preference and body size.Results: Despite large variation between climate model simulations, all but one species are consistently predicted to undergo a poleward distribution shift. Species show contrasting projections relating to a gain or loss of suitable habitat which was best explained by their thermal niche. Overall, high‐latitude Antarctic species were found to have narrower thermal niches and a higher likelihood of losing habitat than sub‐Antarctic species.Main conclusions: The direction of a species response was dependent on the interplay between physiology (realized thermal niche) and biogeography (latitudinal preference). Antarctic species with restricted thermal niches and limited available habitat in which to disperse will be the most vulnerable group of Southern Ocean lanternfish in the face of climate change. Predicted range shifts may alter the size structure of the myctophid community as smaller, sub‐Antarctic species reach further south. This could have implications for trophic interactions and thus the wider Southern Oceanecosystem.
