It seems every other day in South Florida we see a new story of a teacher sexually abusing a student. And in fact, this past week, it was literally every other day, as two female teachers were arrested in Miami-Dade county for predatory sexual relationships with male students. What's even more disturbing than the abuse itself may be the response to it by the general public, a large portion of which seem to feel that male students are "lucky" when their teachers "have sex with" (sexually abuse) them. There is a definite double standard when it comes to females who abuse males, and we're chatting about it on today's episode.

Hoy en Día a Día, comenzamos conversando con el profesor de Relaciones Internacionales en la Universidad de La Salle, César Niño, sobre la posibilidad de que China tenga capacidad en el 2025 para invadir Taiwán: “Estaríamos hablando de un conflicto regional con alcance global… Taiwán podría convertirse en el episodio mediante el cual podríamos tener ese gran pulso entre ambas potencias”, dijo, y comentó: “Si se toca a Taiwán, seguramente EE.UU también entre en la partida. La pregunta sería cuál será la respuesta de Joe Biden”. Diana Seminario, analista político y periodista peruana, nos habló sobre la renuncia de Guido Bellido, primer ministro peruano: “En los últimos días, Bellido y Castillo tuvieron constantes discrepancias públicas, y Bellido responde directamente a Vladimir Cerrón”, señaló, y destacó: “Aunque este cambio es bueno, no podemos decir que es para mejor, porque anoche tomó juramento Mirtha Vásquez, quien también está a favor de la nueva constituyente y de ir a un referéndum”. Desde Caracas nos atendió Andrea Santacruz, abogada y directora ejecutiva del Centro de Derechos Humanos de la Universidad Metropolitana, para hablarnos sobre la denuncia de los diputados federales de Brasil ante la CPI en contra de Nicolás Maduro: “Los diputados sienten una profunda preocupación por la situación de los migrantes venezolanos”, dijo, y explicó que la denuncia se debe a que “Estos migrantes no son reconocidos como personas por algunos miembros de comunidades cercanas, no reciben asistencia jurídica o médica, no tienen alimentación constante y no tienen posibilidades de trabajar legalmente”. Roberto Rodríguez, vocero del Departamento de elecciones del condado de Miami Dade, nos habló sobre las elecciones del 2 de noviembre: “Serán seis elecciones el mismo día, con lo que estaríamos hablando de casi un tercio de la población que va a salir a votar”, dijo, y señaló “En las diferentes municipalidades van a estar eligiendo también a comisionados que van a segunda vuelta, así como alcaldes que van a segunda vuelta”. Con el químico físico, escritor y comunicador científico español, Guillermo Orts-Gil, conversamos sobre los aportes de los ganadores del Premio Nobel de Química 2021: “Benjamin List y David W. C. MacMillan dos personas que han ayudado a las moléculas a bailar… Ellos lograron crear un celestino que ayuda a las moléculas a balar mejor para conseguir muchos medicamentos”, explicó. Y para cerrar, el periodista deportivo venezolano, Daniel Chapela, nos habló sobre las denuncias contra el entrenador Kenneth Zseremeta: “En la medida en que estas denuncias contra Zseremeta se divulgaron, comenzaron a aparecer testimonios de otras muchachas que estuvieron bajo su mando. No específicamente de abuso sexual, pero sí de maltrato psicológico”, dijo, por lo que “El caso se podría llevar a la FIFA para que le suspendan su licencia y así le impidan seguir trabajando”.

Also, on today's Sunrise: — Miami-Dade's school superintendent draws a line in the sand. He opposes the Governor's emergency order that forbids mandatory mask policies at public schools and told the Board of Education their threats mean nothing to him. — Florida Democrats in Congress are criticizing the Governor's mask policy … or lack thereof. And they blame DeSantis for the resurgence of COVID-19 in Florida. — And finally, two Florida Men: One used a bogus credit card to steal $10,000 worth of home improvement supplies from a Home Depot.

When you look at demand for housing, you often hear the statement “Everyone needs a place to live “. That's true. But if we go back to the financial crisis and look at the counties in the US that had large numbers of foreclosures, a disproportionate number of those foreclosures were in fact on second homes. The outsized number of foreclosures in Miami Dade county and Broward county were among the highest in the country. Maricopa county which comprises the municipalities of Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa, Tempe, Glendale, over 20 municipalities in all had some of the highest foreclosure rates in the country. What distinguishes these locations is that a large proportion of these residences are in fact second homes. In moments of financial distress, people will sacrifice their second homes to protect the family homestead. That makes perfect sense. Most rational people would do the same thing. On average, prices fell about 33% as a result of the financial crisis. But prices in Maricopa county fell an average of 56%. A disproportionate number of these properties were second homes. There was a similar phenomenon in Las Vegas and in south Florida and Orlando. We are not accustomed to managing price volatility. In the moment, the heat of the current market conditions, the price today seems to make sense. At least it's possible to explain why the price is what it is. But with the wisdom of hindsight, it's easy to see how distorted the perspective can become for periods of time. ----------------------- Host: Victor Menasce email: podcast@victorjm.com episode # 1279

Memphis rapper Pooh Shiesty is in federal custody and faces a list of charges connected to an alleged robbery and shooting of two men outside of a hotel in Miami-Dade County, Florida. Lontrell Williams, the rapper's legal name, made his first court appearance Tuesday after the FBI indicted him and two other men on charges of discharging a firearm during a violent crime, conspiracy and robbery under a law regulating commerce. Williams, 21, along with Jayden Darosa and Bobby Brown went to the Landon Hotel in Bay Harbor Islands, Florida in October to purchase "high-end athletic sneakers" and marijuana, according to the criminal complaint by Miami-Dade FBI Detective Elio Garcia. Williams arrived in a McLaren he rented from one of the victims and wanted to negotiate the car's rental as well, but during the transaction, he and Brown shot the men — one in the hip and the other in the butt, according to the court documents. Garcia said surveillance footage captured the shooting and after law enforcement spoke with the victims they identified one of the culprits as Pooh Shiesty. While leaving the scene, a Louis Vuitton bag — which had $40,912 dollars in cash — fell out of the McLaren and according to the complaint, Williams posted guns and $100 bills on Instagram days before the robbery. Law enforcement utilized the rapper's social media account and found the same bills in the Louis Vuitton bag were also in his posts, the court document said. For the same incident, Williams was charged and released on bond in Miami-Dade state court but he was detained again in June after allegedly shooting a strip club security guard in the ankle in May. The Commercial Appeal, part of the USA TODAY Network, reached out to Williams' attorneys and record label, Gucci Mane's 1017 Records, but did not receive a response. The rapper's next court appearance is set for July 6 at the Southern District of Florida Court in Miami.

Con Norma Vera Salazar, investigadora del conflicto armado colombiano y defensora de DD.HH, conversamos sobre el encuentro entre víctimas de secuestro y sus captores de las FARC: “En Colombia tenemos 9 millones de víctimas del conflicto armado durante más de 100 años”, dijo, por lo que “Este encuentro es un paso en esa transición tan esperada como sociedad para que empecemos a reconocernos e identificar estas verdades del conflicto”. El corresponsal de ABC en Bruselas, Enrique Serbeto, nos habló sobre la reacción de la Unión Europea ante la ley del gobierno húngaro que prohíbe hablar de homosexualidad en colegios y medios de comunicación: “Hay países que, en voz baja, han apoyado a Viktor Orbán, tales como Polonia y Eslovenia”, comento, pero destacó que “Hay una opinión mayoritaria que dice que el pulso entre Orbán y la Unión Europea tiene que acabar resolviéndose por alguna parte”. La periodista, productora TV y radio y especialista en Comunicación Organizacional, Floralicia Anzola, nos informó sobre las declaraciones de la alcaldesa de Miami Dade, Daniella Levine Cava: “Cava comentó que consiguieron 3 cuerpos más, lo que aumenta el número de fallecidos de esta tragedia a 4 personas”, nos dijo, y destacó que la alcaldesa alertó que “La situación se ha vuelto compleja, ya que por la forma en que cayeron los edificios es muy difícil y riesgoso para los bomberos acceder a los espacios”. Desde Miami nos atendió el editor principal de inmigración en Univisión, Jorge Cancino, quien nos habló sobre la visita de Kamala Harris a la frontera de EE.UU y México: “Harris ha retrasado su viaje por razones que no se conocen mucho, pero se pueden leer entre líneas varios mensajes, y uno de ellos es que ayer asumió el nuevo jefe de la patrulla fronteriza tras la renuncia del último jefe nombrado por Trump, quien respaldó la política de tolerancia 0 del gobierno anterior”, expuso. Y para cerrar, la periodista Rita De Martino nos ayudó a ampliar información sobre el derrumbe del edificio en Surfside, Miami: “Más de 120 personas se encuentran a salvo, y se ha elevado la cifra a 159 desaparecidos hasta el momento”, nos informó. De Martino destacó que “Los familiares de las personas desaparecidas están ubicados en el Centro de Reunificación Familiar, a unas tres o cuatro cuadras del edificio donde ocurrió el desplome” y que “Hasta el momento, eran 4 los venezolanos que se encontraban desaparecidos, jóvenes que han sido reportados en los medios”.

Gov. Ron DeSantis is still basking in the warm glow of a favorable court ruling in his fight with the feds over getting cruise ships back in business. The Governor says there are limits to what the government can do to protect you from the pandemic. Also, on today's Sunrise: — DeSantis made his first public comments about the court ruling during a news conference in Jacksonville about the state's financial commitment to support people with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. — For Rep. Scott Plakon of Longwood, this is personal. Plakon says the state is spending more money on victims of Alzheimer's and their caregivers. — Officials at the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council are hoping the Governor will be just as generous with their clients. They're asking DeSantis to draw down $300 million in Medicaid money to help pay for home care services. — Big changes are coming to Florida Politics. Publisher Peter Schorsch talks about upcoming projects, including a new Florida-centric podcast, hiring new reporters to beef up coverage in Miami Dade and creating a new repository of all of the vilest political ads out there. — And finally, the stories of two Florida men: One has a tattoo of the state on his forehead, the other is accused of pulling a gun during a dispute over cream cheese. The victim's mom is the chief of police.
