The New York Police Department’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating Nazi drawings found Friday morning at an elementary school in Queens, Detective George Tourovakas told CNN.
Dozens of swastikas, a Nazi eagle and the words “Hail Hitler” (sic) were found drawn in chalk on the pavement of PS 139’s schoolyard.
Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz, who represents the district, told CNN her office received photographs from a resident in the apartment building next to t
he school and immediately informed the police. According to Koslowitz, the area is a predominately Jewish neighborhood.
I am horrified, disgusted, and nauseated, to say the least, of what I have witnessed today. Naz
i imagery and anti-Semitic slurs were drawn at the PS 139 Playground in Rego Park. I was on the sce
ne today and most of the imagery has been washed away. Enough is enough! pic.twitter.com/vteXmlqQyk
”This was exceptionally scary today,” Koslowitz said, describing the images as “horrible, just horrible.”
Koslowitz told CNN she heard stories from her mother, who came from Poland, about anti-Semitic incidents in Europe in the
last century. Koslowitz, who grew up in New York, said she never believed an act of this nature could occur in the city.
”This really just has to stop,” she said. “There’s no question about it being a hate crime.”
There have been 36 anti-Semitic crimes reported in the city so this year, compared
with 21 for the same time last year, according to a New York Times report, which cited police.
In the 2016 presidential race, they initially backed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio to be the Rep
ublican nominee for president before switching their allegiance to Trump.
The next year, Trump nominated Craft to be ambassador to Canada, a position she officially assumed in October 2017.
Shortly after arriving in Ottawa, Craft earned some ridicule for telling the CBC she
understood “both sides” of the debate on climate change. Both, she said, “have the
ir own results, from their studies, and I appreciate and I respect both sides of the science.”
Craft is likely to encounter some wariness. Trump and his senior staff have made their
dislike for the United Nations clear, earning the distrust of many at the institution and at times, their mo
ckery. The President has referred to the world body as “just a club for people to get together, talk and have a good ti
me” and repeatedly attacked the institution’s core principle of multilateralism.
artists, according to the concert’s website. These include huge names in Latin America, like Colombian musical legends Carl
os Vives, Juanes and reggaetón singer Maluma — all three of whom have collaborated with pop-star Shakira in the past.
Swedish DJ Alesso is also on the lineup, alongside Mexican rock band Mana, who
have won seven Latin Grammys and four Grammys, and Spanish singer and songwriter Alejandro Sanz.
Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido, who invoked a constitutional provision last month to declare himself acting pres
ident, has been working with a raft of global partners, including the United States, to bring aid into the co
untry. Maduro has repeatedly refused assistance, leaving aid languishing on the border despite growing shortages.
The Venezuelan government has used containers to barricade the Tienditas Bridge and prevent aid from entering.
Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, told CNN en Espanol Thursday that he was asked to do the concert by Guaido.
to faster identify what’s in the shot and make suggestions for better framing.
The four models, which are available for pre-order on Thursday and hit starts on March 8, start at 128GB and go up in cost depending on s
torage size. The devices come in four colors in the US: black, white, blue and a pink inspired by t
he Pantone color of the year (Living Coral). More colors will be available globally.The S10 5G mod
el is the first mainstream device to run on lightning-fast 5G wireless networks later this year. The move could give Samsung a sig
nificant head start in early 5G markets, such as part of the US, South Korea and China, and pit itself as an inn
ovation leader. Apple isn’t expected to have a 5G iPhone until the final quarter of 2020.
Of course, the 5G network is still in its infancy, which could limit the new device’s true potential.
”Some carriers have aggressive launch dates, but full-scale co
verage, like we currently have with 4G, is years away,” Ben Stan
ton at Canalys told CNN Business. “Cellular waves needed for 5G do not travel as far as with 4G and 3G, an
d it will take time for carriers to build a sufficiently dense network of infrastructure.”
