‘A Genuine Individual’: Chicago White Sox Legend Minnie Miñoso’s Hall Of Fame Induction Finally Arrives

Pioneer. All-Star. Gold Glover.

And, after all this time, inductee into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Minnie Miñoso’s journey from Cuba to Cooperstown, N.Y., becomes official Sunday when the Chicago White Sox legend joins the Hall of Fame.

The on-field statistics are plentiful for Miñoso, who died in March 2015 at 90, but are only a fraction of the story.

“He was a Hall of Fame person off the field and in the community, especially at home,” his son Charlie Rice-Miñoso said during a phone interview from Cooperstown, N.Y., on Friday afternoon. “He just had the biggest heart. I know it would have meant the world to him to be here in Cooperstown himself and to be on that stage.

“He spoke a universal language off the field and one-on-one because he was such a genuine individual. He was a very passionate Cuban. It means so much that his contributions will always be remembered.”

Miñoso, nicknamed the “Cuban Comet,” spent parts of 12 seasons with the Sox and was the first Black player for the team in 1951. He quickly emerged as one of the game’s first Afro-Latino stars.

Miñoso was a nine-time All-Star and won three Gold Glove Awards as an outfielder during 17 seasons with Cleveland, the White Sox, St. Louis Cardinals and Washington Senators. Before that, he made the All-Star roster in two of his three Negro Leagues seasons with the New York Cubans and was part of a championship team in 1947.

Miñoso was one of four players elected through the Golden Days Era committee on Dec. 5, joining Jim Kaat — who also spent time with the Sox — Gil Hodges and Tony Oliva.

Candidates needed at least 75% of the vote by the 16-member committees — or 12 votes — to gain election. Miñoso received 14.

Buck O’Neil, who was the first Black coach in American League or National League history with the Cubs, was elected through the Early Baseball Era committee along with Bud Fowler.

Boston Red Sox great David Ortiz was elected by the Baseball Writers Association of America in January.

Minne’s wife, Sharon Rice-Miñoso, will give his speech at Sunday’s ceremony. She has been allotted 10 minutes.

“I’m at 8:58,” she recently said while meeting with reporters at the Guaranteed Rate Field press box before a Sox game, “but that doesn’t count crying or anything else.

“He was so humble. At home, he would have been excited, overwhelmed, like ‘I don’t believe it.’ But he took everything so in stride. I think during the speech is where he would have got emotional. I picture him at times on the stage and saying, ‘He should be here. This should have been him.’ ”

The family also has Minnie’s oldest son, Orestes Arrieta Miñoso Jr., on their minds. He died of complications from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), aka Lou Gehrig’s disease, on March 15. The two were teammates in the 1970s when Minnie was a player-manager in the Mexican National Baseball League.

Charlie Rice-Miñoso pointed out that among his father’s honors is a spot in the Mexican Professional Baseball Hall of Fame.

Minnie Miñoso’s career stats include a .299 average, 2,113 hits, 195 home runs, 1,089 RBIs and 216 stolen bases in 1,948 games. He was also a mentor to several players, including former White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramírez, who was born in Pinar del Rio, Cuba.

“I’m very happy for him to get this honor,” Ramírez said through an interpreter during a July 15 video conference call. “I would have preferred this would have happened when he was alive. It would have been way better. But it didn’t happen. I know that right now, he’s probably happy just seeing this.

“Ever since I met him in 2007, my first year when I came to the U.S., I met him and (pitcher José) Contreras, we started talking about his time in Cuba and when he moved here all the things he did. Every day he gave me advice about everything. It was every day. And it was something I’m glad, very proud of, to just receive advice from him.”

Sox manager Tony La Russa, who was in the dugout during Miñoso’s brief return in 1980, said: “I never (saw) him have a bad day.”

Sharon Rice-Miñoso referenced “Minnie-isms.”

“He had a lot of nice things to say, like “Thank you, my friend,’ and ‘from the bottom of my heart,’ ” she said. “Minnie said those all the time in his speech. So when I say those, I can hear him and his tone, which his nice. It makes me feel closer to him.”

Charlie Rice-Miñoso complimented his mom, saying she’s doing a “great job” leading into the ceremony.

“I have all the confidence in her,” he said. “But at the same time it’s very bittersweet for us to be here without my dad and without our brother. I’m excited that my sisters will be here and my nieces and nephews.

“It will be a lot of laughing, a lot of crying, a lot of moments of pause. How it’s been already. Even if dad were here, that’s exactly how it would have been like as well.”

Twitter Ban Followed Months Of Pressure From The White House

Journalist and author Alex Berenson, former science editor for the New York Times and known to be one of the most vocal critics of official coronavirus policy, reports that the White House was privately lobbying Twitter in the months leading up to its permanent ban on the platform, which was recently reversed after the settlement of his lawsuit against the social media company.

According to internal discussions among Twitter employees held on Slack, a workplace chat application, and published by Berenson in his newsletter, White House officials specifically asked Twitter why the skeptical writer had not been banned from the platform.

Via the Berenson newsletter:

Andrew Slavitt, senior adviser to President Biden’s Covid response team, complained specifically about me, according to a Twitter employee in another Slack conversation discussing the White House meeting.

“They really wanted to know more about Alex Berenson,” the employee wrote. “Andy Slavitt suggested that they had seen data namely [visualization] it had shown him to be the epicenter of misinformation beaming down at the persuasive public.

According to an interview he gave to the Washington Post in June 2021, Slavitt worked directly with the most powerful officials in the federal government, including Ron Klain, President Biden’s chief of staff, and Biden himself.

In the months following Slavitt’s encounter with Twitter, President Biden began to publicly pressure social media companies, accusing them of ‘killing people’ by allowing ‘misinformation’ about the coronavirus to spread. .

After being permanently banned from Twitter shortly after this pressure campaign, Berenson became the first high-profile media personality in the United States to overturn a permanent ban on the platform through the court system.

As part of a legal settlement announced this summer, Twitter lifted the ban on Berenson’s account. Other details of the settlement were not disclosed.

EURGBP Erases Gains and Returns to Familiar Bias Definition Level

Eurgbp Erases Gains And Returns To Familiar Bias Definition Level

EURGBP used the 100-day MA as a ceiling on Wednesday and Thursday.

EURGBP following technical levels.

On the downside, the 200-day MA and the 100-hour MA were broken on Wednesday and attempted to stay below yesterday’s trading. However, after moving back above, the resistance turned back into support. Price rose to retest the 100-day MA during yesterday’s New York trading session (and found sellers).

Today’s price reaction was initially to the downside in the European session, but true to the moving average support, buyers leaned against the 100 hourly moving average and pushed the price higher.

This time the ceiling against the 100-day moving average has been breached, but the next target area near the 61.8% retracement of the move down from the July high at 0.84899, and a zone swing between 0.8488 and 0.84946, found willing sellers.

After falling back below the 100-day moving average for the past 4 hours, the downward momentum has increased with the pair returning to…..drum roll….the 100-hour MA.

Technically, the price did what it had to do around the moving averages, the retracement level and the swing zone.

  • Sellers sold at the break of the 100 hourly moving average and the 200 day moving average,
  • Buyers bought on the way back above the 100 hourly moving average and the 200 day moving average,
  • The sellers relied on the 100-day moving average,
  • Buyers bought after breaking above the 100-day moving average,
  • The sellers relied on a swing zone and the 61.8% retracement.
  • Buyers are buying again against the 100 hour MA.

And then ?

  • The drop below the 100 hourly moving average is more bearish with the next target at the 200 day moving average at 0.8437
  • absent that, and a break above the 100-day moving average at 0.84698 would tilt the bias further to the upside and tempt traders back towards the 61.8% retracement.

8Th Pay Commission: Good News Related To Salary Of Central Employees, Salary Will Increase With New Formula!

8th Pay Commission: Good News related to salary of central employees, salary will increase with new formula!

8th Pay Commission: Good news is coming for central employees. Actually, a new update has come regarding the 8th Pay Commission. The Finance Ministry has made it clear that in the coming days, the salary of central employees will increase with the new formula. Minister of State for Finance Pankaj Chaudhary has given new information in the Lok Sabha. Let us inform that earlier in the year 2016, the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission were implemented. The 7th Pay Commission was constituted on February 28, 2014.

Minister of State for Finance gave this information in Lok Sabha

According to the report of news agency PTI, Union Minister of State for Finance Pankaj Choudhary told the Lok Sabha on Monday that no proposal to set up the 8th Central Pay Commission for central government employees is yet under consideration with the government. The question was asked to the government whether the central government has any such proposal to ensure the timely formation of the 8th Pay Commission for the central employees. So that it can be implemented on January 1, 2026.

Union Minister said on measures to increase wages in view of rising inflation

Giving information about the measures being taken by the government to increase wages in view of rising inflation, the Union Minister of State for Finance said that due to inflation, the dearness allowance (DA) to the central employees to compensate for the fall in the actual value of the salary. DA) is paid. Not only this, the DA is also revised from time to time every 6 months based on the rate of inflation calculated under the All India Consumer Price Index for workers. He said that there should not be a need for the formation of a Pay Commission to review the salaries, allowances and pensions of central employees and pensioners.

Know what is the new formula

. Now the salary of the employees will be decided by the Aykroyd formula. With this, the salary of the employees will be linked to inflation, cost of living and performance of the employee. That is, the promotion of employees will also be done accordingly. However, a Finance Ministry official says that the suggestion is good, but no such formula has been considered so far. On the other hand, there is no confirmation about when the 8th Pay Commission will also come. It is worth noting that earlier in his recommendation of the 7th Pay Commission, Justice Mathur had said that we want to decide the pay structure according to the Aykroyd formula. Cost of living is also taken into account in this rule. This formula was given by Wallace Rudel Income Tax
