Editorial: La pandemia de los especuladores capitalistas

first_imgHay un nuevo término para describir a los superricos: “centimillonarios”. Son individuos cuyo patrimonio neto asciende a más de $100 mil millones.Después de haber agregado $67,2 mil millones a su patrimonio neto en el 2020, el propietario de Amazon, Jeff Bezos, encabeza la lista de centimillonarios globales: $182,2 mil millones a partir del 13 de diciembre, según el sitio web de Forbes. A continuación, el patrimonio neto del fundador de Tesla, Elon Musk, de $147 mil millones representa un aumento de más de $100 mil millones en su riqueza desde el 2019.Tanto el fundador de Microsoft, Bill Gates, con un patrimonio neto de $118.300 millones, como Mark Zuckerberg de Facebook, con un valor neto de $101.800 millones, obtuvieron ganancias de ingresos de más de 10.000 millones de dólares cada uno en el 2020.Mientras tanto, los 651 multimillonarios más ricos de EE.UU. disfrutaron de un aumento neto total de más de $1 billón desde la pandemia a mediados de marzo, según un análisis de los datos financieros de Forbes realizado por Americans for Tax Fairness y el Institute for Policy Studies. Su patrimonio neto combinado actual era de más de $4 billones, para la fecha del 11 de diciembre (tinyurl.com/y3qceb8e).Trabajadores Médicos, Ciudad Juárez México, abril de 2020.Con decenas de millones de personas sin trabajo y el fin del seguro de desempleo extendido en el horizonte, es difícil comprender qué significa tener tanta riqueza y no haber hecho casi nada para ganarla. Después de todo, las mega-ganancias de estos súper multimillonarios provienen de la explotación del trabajo de sus trabajadores, no de su propio sudor y sangre.Más de un tercio de los adultos estadounidenses, alrededor de 83 millones, tienen problemas para pagar sus necesidades básicas, incluidos alimentos, facturas médicas y alquiler/hipoteca. Solo las ganancias de estos pocos cientos de multimillonarios desde marzo del 2020 podrían alimentar a todos los hambrientos, albergar a todas las personas sin hogar y cubrir todas las necesidades médicas relacionadas con la vacuna.Si el Congreso de los EE.UU. No aprueba un nuevo proyecto de ley de ayuda, 12 millones de personas perderán los beneficios por desempleo el 26 de diciembre. Frank Clemente, director ejecutivo de Americans for Tax Fairness, calculó: “Sus ganancias pandémicas [$1 billón] son ​​tan inmensas que los multimillonarios podría pagar una importante factura de alivio de COVID y aún así no perder ni un centavo de sus riquezas previas al virus”. (truthout.com, 11 de diciembre)Según Clemente, el crecimiento de la riqueza de estos 651 multimillonarios podría proporcionar un pago de estímulo de $3.000 a cada persona en los EE.UU. Y los ricos aún serían más ricos de lo que eran antes de la pandemia.El patrimonio neto de Jeff Bezos es mayor que el PIB de la mayoría de los países. Podría dar a todos los miembros de la fuerza laboral global de $1,2 millones de tiempo completo y parcial de Amazon un bono de $75.000 y seguir siendo tan rico como lo era antes del COVID-19.Pero tal “bonificación” solo comenzaría a cubrir la riqueza que Bezos ha robado a los trabajadores de Amazon al no pagarles el valor total de su trabajo, especialmente desde mediados de marzo, cuando el negocio de Amazon se disparó debido a los bloqueos de COVID-19.En 2011, el movimiento Occupy Wall Street surgió para centrar la atención en la creciente brecha de riqueza entre el 1 por ciento más rico y el 99 por ciento de la población que lucha por sobrevivir. En ese momento, el patrimonio neto de Bezos era “solo” $18,1 mil millones. En los EE.UU., 1.210 personas tenían un patrimonio total neto de $4.5 billones, aproximadamente dos veces la cantidad de personas que lo valen hoy. (www.forbes.com, 9 de marzo de 2011)Eso solo confirma que, bajo el capitalismo, la riqueza sigue concentrada en la cima y en cada vez menos manos. Si bien la crisis de COVID-19 es un factor que contribuye, las disparidades extremas de riqueza y el aumento de los centimillonarios en los EE.UU. también fueron impulsados ​​por cuatro décadas de salarios fijos para los trabajadores y siglos de discriminación por motivos de raza, sexo, género, sexualidad, discapacidad y más.La vasta riqueza de los capitalistas podría usarse para hacer que las vacunas COVID sean gratuitas y accesibles para todos, y en particular para los trabajadores más vulnerables y las personas oprimidas, en el plazo más corto posible. Pero si bien una vacuna para prevenir el COVID-19 es bienvenida, lo que hace desde mucho tiempo es ha debido hacerse es una revolución para poner fin a la pandemia de los especuladores capitalistas.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Whicker: Disbelief precedes grief over the news about Tyler Skaggs

Whicker: Disbelief precedes grief over the news about Tyler Skaggs

first_img Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Bane did and did, and that was enough. The Angels had six of the first 80 picks, and Skaggs went 40th and signed for $1 million. Five of those six are in the big leagues, including 25th pick Mike Trout, who became Skaggs’ minor league roomie.“Before Tyler filled out, he looked like he had the body of a skateboarder,” said Serrano, now the coach at Cal State Northridge. “But he always had that swag going.”Skaggs was looking forward to another start in Dodger Stadium, on July 23 or 24. The Angels will be blindsided by such forfeited moments, such former opportunities, for years.We all think baseball careers will end organically, either by performance or injury or, in rare cases, the player’s own choice. Now we’re consigned to remember Skaggs for what he could have been instead of what he was.Monday wasn’t right.Photos: Angels pitcher Tyler Skaggs through the years Around the tight world of baseball, they got pinged by their texts and their e-mails and their social media, early on Monday afternoon.They looked at the screens and blinked.Angels left-hander Tyler Skaggs, 27, was found dead in a Southlake, Texas hotel room.They looked again, read again, shook their heads as if it were some exotic language, or maybe one of those word pyramids where they bury the sentence in a forest of letters. Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield center_img “One thing about him,” said Marcel Lachemann, who has been advising Angel pitchers since the 1970s. “He didn’t like to come out of games.”But Skaggs was coming on. He had ditched his slider and was throwing more four-seam fastballs and changeups. He had fought through two major injuries, including Tommy John surgery, and a trade to Arizona and then back to Anaheim. And, as Bane kept saying on Monday, he was 27.“I watched that game,” said Bane, the scouting director who supervised that 2009 draft, now a special assistant with the Red Sox.“They showed the dugout and there was Tyler, laughing and imitating the way Justin Upton was running. He just looked so comfortable and I thought, there you are. You’re a big-leaguer now, no question. It happens so fast.”That’s 10 years, happening so fast. In 2009 Angels fans adorned the ballpark plaza with flowers and mementos for Nick Adenhart, who was taken by a runaway drunk driver. Fans began doing that on Monday for Skaggs.How many wins and awards and dollars would Adenhart have by now? Those questions endure to this day and now will be asked in tandem.“It’s hard,” Lachemann said. “As a coach or manager, you really don’t know what to say. You’re as shocked as anyone else. Nobody really wants to play when this happens. The baseball is pretty insignificant at this point.”The fans felt proprietary. Skaggs went to Santa Monica. His mom Debbie was the softball coach there; his stepdad built a mound in the backyard. Debbie had pitched well in her day, and she pointed out things with every start.As a sophomore, Skaggs pitched in a CIF championship game at Dodger Stadium, but lost 7-1 to Charter Oak. “We didn’t play well behind him that day,” said Kevin Brockway, Santa Monica’s coach at the time. “He was throwing 90-91 that day and he always had that curveball. He was skinny, but that curve was what they all liked.”Dave Serrano, the Cal State Fullerton coach, liked it a lot and got a commitment from him. But as Skaggs got stronger and faster, the pro scouts converged.Bane saw Skaggs throw slow, looping curves on his visit.“I don’t like him,” he told Bo Hughes, the Angels’ Western scouting supervisor at the time.“Go back again,” Hughes said, “and you’ll see the real curve.”Related Articles Was there another Skaggs, another Tyler? Is this a fake account?“That’s not right,” Eddie Bane said.It isn’t. But it was painfully correct. Skaggs, from Santa Monica High, a tall and talented kid whom Angels fans watched from the beginning of his cocoon, is no longer with us. The details were nonexistent and, for now, irrelevant.Skaggs got married to Carli last October. He was showing signs of becoming a high-rotation starter. Just last week he predicted the Angels’ inconsistent rotation would begin to catch up with the healthy offense and cause a “meteoric rise.”His final pitch was in the fifth inning Saturday night, at home against Oakland, and it produced a groundout. It was also his 91st pitch, and Skaggs was removed for Trevor Cahill, and he was agitated in the first place because he’d been called for a balk, and then Matt Chapman homered off Cahill for a 3-0 Oakland lead. Skaggs rose and walked down the tunnel, his emotions unmasked, as usual.

Soggy conditions Between the Rows

Soggy conditions Between the Rows

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Things are wet and miserable. Every three days it rains. I have straw that has been rained on four times. We finally got all the wheat cut. When you get nice days do you bale straw or go cut the wheat before it gets rained on for four straight days and the test weight goes down? They brought a draper out to demo and we finished cutting wheat last night about 11.Here around home the wheat was in the 75- or 80-bushel range, which I wasn’t too upset with, but the wheat was pretty rough on one of our south farms. It was just too wet. Quality wise we haven’t hauled any in yet, but things are looking promising as far as the markets go. We have a bunch of wheat sold and we have heard the test weights have been good. The wheat is actually worth something now and we wanted to get it off.We got about 20 acres of 150 acres of straw baled. We ended up round baling a bunch of it. We still have a bunch of straw laying in a windrow that has been rained on three times.The last couple of years of farming I feel like a Cleveland Browns fan. You always start out with a positive attitude and you get halfway through the season and you’re saying, “There’s always next year.”It was wet and we finally got planted and things got going. Now it is so wet again. In the last week or so of June we got over three inches in two days and we got another inch last week. We’ve had between four and five inches of rain in the last two or three weeks and it has been hard rain. We have corn that came up beautifully and now we have ocean waves of corn with high spots and low spots and everything else in between.We should be making the second cutting of hay and now that’s getting behind too. Would you rather have an overly wet year or a dry year? At least when it is dry, you can get work done. When you are wet you can’t do anything and you get behind. Along with all of that, we are having a Stark County Cattlemen’s event here Saturday and we have to get things cleaned up.For the rest of this week’s reports, click here.last_img read more
