The Mule

 

 

 

THE MULE / MULA 12/14/18

Earl Stone (Clint Eastwood) es un anciano horticultor de cerca de 90 años, veterano de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Earl está solo y en quiebra, ya que se enfrenta a una ejecución hipotecaria de su negocio. Es entonces cuando le ofrecen un trabajo que simplemente le exige conducir. Todo parece bastante fácil, pero, sin Earl saberlo, lo que realmente está haciendo es transportar cocaína para un cartel mexicano. Todo se complica cuando el agente de la DEA, Colin Bates (Bradley Cooper) empiece a investigar esta misteriosa mula que transporta drogas para el cartel mexicano de Sinaloa.

Clint Eastwood stars as Earl Stone, a man in his 80s who is broke, alone, and facing foreclosure of his business when he is offered a job that simply requires him to drive. Easy enough, but, unbeknownst to Earl, he’s just signed on as a drug courier for a Mexican cartel. He does well—so well, in fact, that his cargo increases exponentially, and Earl is assigned a handler. But he isn’t the only one keeping tabs on Earl; the mysterious new drug mule has also hit the radar of hard-charging DEA agent Colin Bates. And even as his money problems become a thing of the past, Earl’s past mistakes start to weigh heavily on him, and it’s uncertain if he’ll have time to right those wrongs before law enforcement, or the cartel’s enforcers, catch up to him.

SECOND ACT / SEGUNDA OPORTUNIDADA 12/21/18

Una cajera de unas grandes superficies decide cambiar su vida radicalmente, poner todo patas arriba y cambiar las cosas por completo. Demostrando así que la inteligencia callejera es tan valiosa como un título universitario.

A big box store employee reinvents her life and her lifestyle, which gets her the chance to prove to Madison Avenue that street smarts are as valuable as a college degree.

 

NEW YORK (AP) — The ex-president of the State University of New York’s Polytechnic Institute is facing sentencing in the corruption of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s “Buffalo Billion” economic redevelopment program.

Alain Kaloyeros, born in Beirut in 1956, was the school’s president when the Democratic governor tapped him to help a quest to create high-tech jobs in upstate New York.

His lawyers say Cuomo looked to Kaloyeros for expertise after the administration of Republican ex-Gov. George Pataki successfully teamed up with Kaloyeros years earlier to bring semiconductor manufacturing to the Albany area.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Coach Sean McDermott knows the Buffalo Bills aren’t going to win too many more games if they keep allowing opponents to start drives at midfield — or beyond.

“That wasn’t part of the game plan, for them to start at the 48,” McDermott said, sarcastically.

Three turnovers by rookie quarterback Josh Allen, coupled with a series of special teams coverage breakdowns led to the Bills squandering a 14-3 lead in a 27-23 loss to the New York Jets on Sunday.

Though the Jets took their first and only lead on Elijah McGuire’s touchdown on fourth-and-goal from the 1 with 1:17 remaining, McDermott said the trouble began much earlier when the Bills kept providing New York opportunities.

Allen’s first two turnovers on a lost fumble and an interception committed inside Bills territory, not only ended Buffalo scoring opportunities, but led to a Jets field goal.

And then there were Buffalo’s special teams meltdowns, which led to Andre Roberts finishing with 176 yards on five kickoff returns.

“There’s a recipe to winning in this league and it starts by taking care of the football, giving yourself a chance with good field position,” McDermott said. “We were shooting ourselves in the foot. That’s really the story of the game right there.”

Buffalo dropped to 4-9 and will finish with a losing record for just the second time in five seasons, and a year after making the playoffs to end a 17-year postseason drought. Expectations were lower for the Bills this season, given the commitment they made to rebuilding through youth last offseason.

The lack of experience has shown for a team starting five first- or second-year players on offense, and four more on defense.

Each time the Bills appeared to gain momentum, they handed it back to the Jets.

After Isaiah McKenzie scored on a 15-yard run to put Buffalo up 14-3, Roberts followed with a 51-yard kickoff return, which led to Jason Myers hitting a 21-yard field goal.

After Buffalo’s Stephen Hauschka hit a 31-yard field goal to regain the 14-point edge, Roberts burst up the right sideline for an 86-yard return, which set up Trenton Cannon’s 4-yard touchdown.

And after Hauschka hit a 36-yard field goal with 2:31 left to put Buffalo up 23-20, Roberts not only returned the next kickoff 22 yards to New York’s 34, but the Jets picked up another 5 yards due to an illegal formation penalty called against Buffalo.

Rookie quarterback Sam Darnold then proceeded to march the Jets on a nine-play, 61-yard drive to win it, including a perfectly placed 37-yard pass to Robby Anderson, who made an over-the-shoulder catch up the right sideline.

Members of the Bills’ defense blamed themselves for allowing the Jets to score.

And yet, Buffalo limited New York to 248 yards offense and 15 first downs. The difference was the Jets having eight drives start at their 35 or better, including five inside Buffalo territory.

Allen blamed himself.

“I’ve got to be smarter with the football,” said Allen, who now has nine interceptions and two lost fumbles, versus five touchdowns passing and five rushing.

Allen’s first interception came when he was scrambling to his right and, rather than throwing the ball away, floated a pass back toward the field and was easily intercepted by Trumaine Johnson. Allen’s second interception came on Buffalo’s final drive, when he tried to force a pass to Zay Jones, only to have it picked off by Johnson.

“Yeah, he’s got to learn from those,” McDermott said. “At times, he’s tried to do too much. That’s tough living there.”

Buffalo, NY– This week Mayor Byron W. Brown joined other elected officials who are members of the Cities for Action network in submitting written comments to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in opposition of the proposed Public Charge rule.

USCIS has proposed changes to its Public Charge rule which would allow denial of some status applications to immigrants who are likely to become a public charge.  The rule change would define use of certain public benefits as factors in USCIS decisions to grant or deny future immigrants an opportunity to become permanent residents.

“It is our position that the proposed rule would pressure immigrants and their families to forgo enrolling in vital programs such as nutrition assistance, health coverage and housing that their families are eligible for and need,” Mayor Brown wrote in his opposing comments. “Because the rules for determining whether someone is a “public charge” are technical and the circumstances under which such a determination is made are often confusing, the number of low-income immigrant families that choose not to receive benefits would likely exceed by a sizable amount the number that would ultimately be subject to a “public charge” determination.”

Mayor Brown’s written comment was submitted with information about how this rule could affect individuals in need, especially when their children are present in the U.S. and eligible for local resources.

The written comment can be viewed in full at Regulations.gov and is the Mayor’s second submission concerning the proposed rule.  In October of this year, he signed on to a U.S. Conference of Mayors letter in opposition to the proposed rule.

The comment period for the proposed rule ended, Monday, December 10, 2018.
