Smollett’s counter lawsuit has been thro Chicago
Smollett’s counter lawsuit has been thrown out
A federal judge has decided to throw out the Jussie Smollett’s counter lawsuit against the city by saying that the lawsuit can not move forward until the first lawsuit is handled. The city had spent $130000 on investigating a so-called crime in January 2019. The city now is trying to recoup the donated money, and Smollett is avoiding paying that fees. Smollett’s counter lawsuit claims that the investigation has not been carried out correctly and accuses that the critical evidence was ignored. It also claims that Chicago Police Superintendent is trying to target Smollett without any reason. The former “Empire” claimed last year that he was a victim of a racist and homophobic attack. However, police after an investigation said that Smollett himself had staged this attack as he was unhappy with his “Empire” salary.

As the health officials have updated about the situation of COVID-19 in Illinois with 1551 new cases, Governor JB Pritzker said that Illinois has still not reached a peak in COVID-19.

Torrance man suspected for stealing medication
Christopher Mencia, aged 36, is being suspected of stealing thousands of dollars worth of a controversial medication that has been touted for possible treatment for COVID-19. Christopher Mencias is accused of taking more than 700 tablets of hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, which is valued at $6700. President Donald Trump has touted these two medications have proven to be an effective treatment of COVID-19, but results so far are inconclusive.
There is a group of people who have improved because of drugs. However, there is not sufficient evidence that can describe the two drugs as a possible treatment. One of the studies has even reported that a higher death rate was recorded among the group of people who were treated with these two drugs.
It was reported by the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office that Agustin had stolen the tablets twice from the hospital on different occasions. Hospitals have tightened their attention to the monitoring of this medication so that any further missing of the drugs could be avoided. An official from the hospital said that an inventory noticed the missing quantity of the drugs and notified the hospital authorities. On investigating the incident, Agustin has been arrested on March 31 for grand theft. He has now been held instead of $100,000 bail. If convicted, he can face four years and a four-month jail sentence.
Forced by the scenario, police officer started shooting
In an investigation in the area of 32nd and San Pedro Street, police were called for investigating an incident. One of the police officers decided to include firing, which has caused the death of the suspect. In addition to multiple evidence markers indicating bullet casing, a covered body was visible at the site. There were several damaged vehicles also present at the site.
A thought of having the injured women in the suspect’s vehicle before the incident is also focused. The details of the scenario which caused the office to open fir are not disclosed yet.

Cristina reached on Instagram to tell about how hard she has been working since 10 days to get her son through the virus. She wrote in message that "My heart hurts more than my head over his infection. I'm applying a modified version of my remedies for his protocol with a focus on lots of vitamins. Since his sense of smell and taste have disappeared, I am feeding him healthy foods that I normally can't get him to touch. I kept a diary of the past week, including my remedies and things that I did to stay sane through it all."
Chris Cuomo was also infected with the virus but recovered a month earlier and reunited with his family.
Chris shared the news of Christina's coronavirus diagnosis earlier this month through an Instagram message, which says, "Families all across the state and the country are experiencing... it's very fair for a family to be one and done," Chris shared with his brother, Andrew Cuomo. "Cristina now has COVID, she is now positive, and it just breaks my heart. It is the one thing I was hoping wouldn't happen, and now it has."

NASA | 1998 OR2, el gigantesco asteroide con forma de mascarilla, se “aproxima peligrosamente” a la Tierra - Aweita
La roca espacial 1998 OR2 ha sido calificada como “potencialmente peligrosa” por la NASA, aunque no existe un verdadero riesgo de que impacte con la Tierra.
Pese a que la NASA reportó que un asteroide se acercaría peligrosamente a la Tierra a inicios de abril, un equipo de la agencia finalmente ha revelado mayores detalles de esta roca espacial que viaja con dirección a nuestro planeta. La curiosa forma del 1998 OR2 ha sorprendido a la NASA ya que se asemeja a una mascarilla protectora como las que usan los expertos de la medicina y las personas en general durante estos tiempos de crisis por la pandemia del coronavirus. Desde el Observatorio de Arecibo en Puerto Rico, la Agencia Espacial Norteamericana utilizó un telescopio para descifrar la figura del asteroide potencialmente peligroso que se pasará cerca de nuestro planeta el 29 de abril. La institución calcula que el objeto es de unos 1,5 kilómetros de diámetro y que viaja a una velocidad de 8.69 kilómetros por segundo. No obstante, Zhao Haibin -astrónomo del Observatorio de la Montaña Púrpura de la Academia de Ciencias de China- destaca que el elemento pasará a una distancia mínima de 6.28 millones de kilómetros de la Tierra, por lo que tiene cero posibilidadesde golpearla cuando haga el sobrevuelo esta vez. Haibin explica que, pese a esto, el asteroide lleva la denominación de potencialmente peligroso por la periodicidad con la que pasa cerca a la órbita de nuestro planeta. Have you been hearing about asteroid 1998 OR2s close approach on April 29? Rest assured that this asteroid will safely pass Earth by 3.9 million miles/6.2 million km.

Ask them using #askNASA! pic.twitter.com/a3WhttAoED NASA Asteroid Watch (@AsteroidWatch) April 14, 2020 A través de la cuenta oficial del Arecibo Radar en Twitter, el equipo que monitorea los movimientos del asteroide publicó una serie de fotografías en las que se puede apreciar cómo trabajan para estudiarlo siguiendo los protocolos de sanidad necesarios durante la crisis que atraviesa el mundo por la pandemia del COVID-19. Además, en las palabras que acompañan a las imágenes, se destaca la peculiar figura del 1998 OR2. #TeamRadar y el personal de @NAICobservatory están tomando las medidas de seguridad adecuadas a medida que continuamos las observaciones. ¡Esta semana hemos estado observando el asteroidecercano a la Tierra 1998OR2, que parece que lleva una mascarilla! ¡Tiene al menos 1,5 km de ancho y pasa 16 distancias lunares! mencionó la NASA a través del tuit. #TeamRadar and the @NAICobservatory staff are taking the proper safety measures as we continue observations. This week we have been observing near-Earth asteroid 1998 OR2, which looks like it's wearing a mask! It's at least 1.5 km across and is passing 16 lunar distances away! pic.twitter.com/X2mQJCT2Qg Arecibo Radar (@AreciboRadar) April 18, 2020 El asteroide 1998 OR2 puede resultar intimidante por la frecuencia con la que pasa por la órbita terrestre además de su descomunal tamaño, pero -debido al constante monitoreo que ejecuta la NASA- el elemento ni siquiera ha sido incluido en el Sistema Sentry de la agencia espacial debido a que la posibilidad de que impacte con la superficie terrestre es muy remota desde que fue descubierto en 1998.

Jorge Carrascal podría llegar al fútbol italiano - Liga Deportiva Postobón
De acuerdo a la información de la prensa de Italia, el colombiano es opción en el mercado para la próxima temporada.
En su editorial en el programa Saque Largo de Win Sports, Eduardo Luis López se refirió al protocolo presentado por la Dimayor y al FCF para un posible retorno de actividades. «El Gobierno recibe una ayuda con eso (protocolo de FPC), para que no sea el Gobierno el que diga: ‘ puede volver el fútbol’, como lo tuvo que hacer ayer explicando el presidente con la construcción, y el protocolo es el siguiente: así, así y así; ese protocolo lo tuvo que hacer el Gobierno». «No lo que hizo el fútbol fue ‘si nos permitieran jugar, haríamos esto’. Obvio no es hoy, si lo leen obvio no es hoy. No es titular decir que el presidente dijo que… hoy no, no. Es un titular hoy, pero el presidente sabe que no es para hoy, la Dimayor sabe que no es para hoy». «Estamos es aportando, cuando se pueda, cuando estén dadas las condiciones, con las medidas que pide el Gobierno, con las personas experimentadas; obvio», indicó. El narrador también se refirió a las críticas que vienen recibiendo los periodistas de Win Sports en redes sociales: «Pero del fútbol colombiano vive mucha gente, no Win, no solamente Win, viven también los clubes…Usted que es hincha, no le sirve que su equipo no exista». «Yo solamente soy una voz más, así como hay otras que dicen ‘Lo pagará su madre’, permitan que haya otra que diga: ‘¿Y si volvemos?; ¿Y si volvemos así?; y que rico el fútbol’, que rico que fuera para todo el mundo, y, ¿por qué no piden gratis todo lo demás?… también». «Y que si podemos aportar, claro que podemos aportar algo, ojalá podamos hacer algo, pero el fútbol también es parte de la industria del país», sentenció.
