LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Last year, Delaney Spaulding was preparing to compete for the U.S. Olympic softball team, but her Olympic dream nearly died after tearing the ACL and meniscus in her right knee. February 2020. Spaulding, though, had a built-in love for softball that started at an age too early to remember. “My parents told me that I was at the softball field at 8-weeks-old, watching my sisters play. Obviously, I don’t remember that, but I do remember taking my naps at the softball field and hearing the game being played in the background,” Spaulding said in an interview Chris Hayre. “I think that’s when I really found my love for the game, even before I touched a ball and played on my little league team.” Like her sisters, Spaulding went on to play at Etiwanda High School.

Anuncio que muestra a una paciente de covid sin aliento provoca reacciones negativas en Australia mientras el país lucha contra la variante delta

Alexandra Ferguson (CNN)– Un drástico anuncio de salud del gobierno de Australia que muestra a una mujer joven jadeando mientras está conectada a un ventilador provocó una fuerte respuesta negativa en el país. Los usuarios de las redes sociales critican que se dirija a los jóvenes con el fin de que se vacunen contra el coronavirus, siendo que la mayoría de ellos aún no son elegibles para recibir la vacuna recomendada. “El covid puede afectar a cualquiera. Quédate en casa. Hazte la prueba. Reserva tu vacuna”, dice un mensaje en pantalla en el anuncio de 30 segundos, aparentemente destinado a ilustrar los riesgos que supone para los jóvenes la variante delta, altamente contagiosa. La variante delta avanza más rápido, dice experto 2:54 El anuncio, que empezó a emitirse el domingo por la noche en Sydney, “es bastante gráfico, y pretende serlo”, dijo el domingo en una rueda de prensa el jefe médico de Australia, Paul Kelly. “Lo hacemos a causa de la situación (de covid-19)”. Aunque a Australia le ha ido mejor que a muchas otras naciones desarrolladas en cuanto a mantener las infecciones relativamente…

Judge Denies Gov. Newsom’s Request To Be Listed As Democrat On Recall Ballot

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California Gov. Gavin Newsom can’t put his Democratic Party affiliation on the ballot voters see when they decide whether to remove him, a judge ruled Monday. Newsom’s campaign missed a deadline to submit his affiliation to California Secretary of State Shirley Weber for the Sept. 14 recall election. Newsom’s campaign said it was inadvertent and asked Weber, who was appointed by Newsom, to allow the affiliation to appear. She said the issue needed to go to a judge, so Newsom filed a lawsuit. Newsom’s Republican opponents criticized the move as an attempt to change rules everyone else must follow. Newsom’s elections attorney, Thomas Willis, and an attorney for Weber both argued during an hourlong hearing Friday that Newsom merely missed an arbitrary, harmless filing deadline and that it is in the voters’ interest to know his party preference. Adding that information now wouldn’t cause a procedural problem because elections officials still have enough time to ensure Newsom’s party preference appears on the ballot along with those seeking to replace him, Weber said in a court filing. “At base this comes down to whether…

Judge Orders New Hearing To Determine Whether Scott Peterson Should Get New Trial

(CBS13/AP) – A judge has ordered a hearing to see if convicted killer Scott Peterson deserves a new trial, over possible juror misconduct. Peterson, 48, was sentenced to death in the 2002 murders of his pregnant wife, Laci, and the son she was carrying. His attorneys claim a juror who eagerly sought to be involved in the trial, Richelle Nice, committed misconduct by not disclosing she had been a crime victim, defense attorneys said Friday in their bid for a new trial. New details show Juror 7 failed to disclose her boyfriend beat her in 2001 while she was pregnant. It was previously revealed that she failed to disclose that while pregnant with another child she obtained a restraining order against the boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend, whom she feared would hurt her unborn child. In court filings, prosecutors have brushed off accusations of misconduct. They included a declaration by Nice that indicated she either misunderstood or misinterpreted the questions about other legal proceedings she had been involved in. The California supreme court already overturned Peterson’s death sentence in the murder of Laci and their unborn son over…

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Funeral services will be held next week for Father Joe Carroll, a San Diego icon of charitable services whose decades of work for the homeless made him a noted figure nationally and a beloved civic fixture in his adopted hometown.

San Diego County is not being asked to reduce water usage. Why?

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – As California continues to face a drought brought on by record-breaking temperatures, Gov. Gavin Newsom is asking residents to reduce their water usage by 15%. However, this request does not apply to San Diego County. Sandra Kerl, General Manager at the San Diego County Water Authority, joined KUSI’s Logan Byrnes on Good Evening San Diego to discuss what “America’s Finest City” is doing right. Kerl explained that due to a “portfolio” of different water supplies and long-term conservation efforts, the city has enough water supply for now, despite the state’s drought. A large portion of San Diego County’s water supply comes from the Colorado River and about 10% comes from the Carlsbad Desal Plant, the largest and most technologically-advanced desalination plant in the Western Hemisphere, according to their website. About 66% of San Diego County’s water usage comes from residential use, Kerl said, so water conservation at home really does make a difference, she emphasized.
