In City Hall in Indio, Calif., hangs the Ortiz Wall of Service, a plaque listing more than 50 names of military servicemen from Richard Martinez III’s family.“It dates back to the Mexican-American War — on the American side — and I’m the last name. I’m fourth-generation infantry,” said Martinez, a College freshman and an Army veteran who served in the 82nd Airborne Division.But Martinez, who is 21, ultimately wants his name not on a plaque, but heard making an impact on the community.“There is a van 10 minutes from my house in Fresno that takes workers to pick in the fields. There are younger kids starting from age 8 to people even over the age of 60. Some kids don’t go to school because they have to work and provide for their family,” he said. “It’s an image I grew up with, and something no other culture or race does, but it’s prevalent, and I’m tired of it.”Martinez grew up in a modest neighborhood of West Fresno, the son of two teachers (his father has a radio talk show called “To the Point with Super Mex”).“They gave me every opportunity they could with what they had,” he recalled. “My dad, who grew up very poor, thought the elementary school I attended was not a wholesome view of what the Hispanic community is. So in seventh grade I was sent to school in neighboring Madera, where there was a much higher percentage of Mexicans and minorities in general. It was culture shock and I literally and figuratively got my ass kicked.”Martinez returned to Fresno for high school at a public charter school that emphasized academics and the arts.“I was on the academic decathlon team, seven-time, back-to-back national champions, and we won the years I was on the team. I also won a national championship title in Greco-Roman wrestling,” said Martinez, who started wrestling at 7. He also performed in choir, feeding his lifelong love of singing.,But despite his academic success, while his friends were applying to college, Martinez enlisted to serve his country.“The Army was much different for me. In some ways, my life before the Army was harder. What I got was perspective. It was, in some ways, a safety, but a safety no one would ever look down on,” he said.In 2015, Martinez deployed to Iraq as a paratrooper with the mission to advise, assist, and train Iraqi soldiers — some of whom later died in action.“I realized what I have compared to what they have, and I have everything,” he said. “Being a soldier was the best they could do. It was the only steady paycheck they could find.”As his hitch wound down, Martinez decided to apply to college. He retook the SATs, then he aimed high.“I had a lot of time to think. I wasn’t satisfied with the bare minimum,” he said. “I hadn’t written anything in four years before writing the college application essays.”Last year Martinez stepped onto the Harvard campus with enthusiasm. He moved into Hurlbut Hall; dove into a philosophy seminar on Friedrich Nietzsche, “Ottoman State and Society,” and Expos 10 and 20; joined Arts and Humanities Dean Robin Kelsey’s student board; and made the wrestling team, another tight-knit band of brothers who helped him find his way as an older freshman.,“I don’t know what the school year would have been like without them,” he said.The reverse is probably true as well.“Richard has had many experiences that most of his classmates will never have. I’m always struck by how he doesn’t take anything for granted — about his schooling, or about being in the classroom,” said Rebecca Summerhays, a preceptor in the Harvard College writing program. “He seizes every opportunity to think critically and to become involved in the discussions. He would never sit quietly and let others have the discussion.”Summerhays has been struck by Martinez’ eloquence, and by the way he related personally to assignments. To write about the Harvard Art Museums, he toured them with a classmate who had never been in an art museum.“I know they had a meaningful conversation on how to approach art for the first time,” she said. “Richard became a role model.”That’s something Martinez says he hopes to be not just to his classmates, but to other Mexican-Americans and to military men and women of all backgrounds considering higher education. His Army buddies “are incredibly smart people,” he said, but many were surprised that he would apply to an Ivy League school.“They said, ‘Martinez, you’re crazy. It will never happen,’” he said. “They just think community college, but they could be here too.”
By Carla Babb/Voice of America August 20, 2018 Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters traveling with him to Washington from Bogota, Colombia, Friday August 17th that he would likely be sending the USNS Comfort based at Norfolk, Virginia. Mattis said those he spoke with in Bogota were “embracing” and “enthusiastic” about the upcoming ship deployment, which he stressed was “absolutely a humanitarian mission.” “We’re not sending soldiers, we’re sending doctors,” Mattis said, without providing details on when the ship would set sail. Hospital ships are typically deployed to provide life-saving treatment and medical care and to relieve the pressure on national health systems. The U.S. defense secretary said he was given specific input, such as where best to deploy the ship, during talks Friday with his defense counterpart and newly inaugurated Colombian President Ivan Duque. “They (Colombian leadership) not only agreed in principle, they gave details of how we might best craft the cruise through the region,” Mattis said. Chile, Argentina and Brazil — the other stops on his South America tour — also provided input on the hospital ship deployment, according to Mattis. Aware of Venezuelan sensitivities, Mattis stressed the U.S. hospital ship would not go into Venezuela’s territorial waters. Jason Marczak, director of the Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center at the Atlantic Council, told VOA the situation in Venezuela has led to a migration crisis of global proportions “that is on track to potentially parallel or surpass the numbers that (have been) coming out of the Middle East.” “If those migration numbers are not managed in an orderly, effective way, that has the potential to create greater instability in the countries to which migrants are going,” Marczak said. As of June, an estimated 2.3 million people had fled Venezuela, mainly to Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Brazil, according to the United Nations. U.N. officials reported at that time that more than half of those who fled were “suffering from malnourishment.” The U.S. Navy has one other hospital ship, the USNS Mercy, which is based at San Diego, California. USNS Comfort and USNS Mercy usually deploy for humanitarian missions with a diverse group of doctors on board hailing from multiple countries.

(ESPNCricinfo) – WITH their third straight opening century stand, with the highest ever opening partnership in IPL, and with rapid centuries of their own, Jonny Bairstow and David Warner consigned Royal Challengers Bangalore to their third straight loss.The 232 chase fell on Virat Kohli’s shoulder early in the innings, as Mohammed Nabi removed the top order, including the big scalp of AB de Villiers in the first four overs.Kohli crawled to 3 off nine in the Powerplay, but was out soon after. At one point, RCB slumped to 30 for 5, and it was game over.Sunrisers reached the IPL final last year without Warner. This year, without Kane Williamson, their captain and IPL 2018’s highest run-getter, they’ve put on three century opening stands.On Sunday, the demolition mantle was taken over by Bairstow, who scored his second T20 century and first in the IPL, off 52 balls.Kohli opted to bat because he expected the pitch to be slow in the first innings.He opened the bowling with Moeen Ali, and immediately saw Bairstow go after him.The second ball was swept for four to begin the boundary barrage.While Warner made room for deliveries that were outside off for punches and drives, and walked across to swat and nudge the others on the leg side, Bairstow mainly targeted the leg side right throughout.In the Powerplay, Bairstow hit Mohammed Siraj for consecutive fours in the fourth and sixth overs when he went short or wide.There was a hint of the openers slowing down when 16-year-old debutant legspinner Prayas Ray Barman conceded only six off his first over, the seventh of the innings, but they didn’t take long to line him up. Bairstow tore into Barman off his next.He followed an inside-out six over the covers with two fours on the leg side to bring up a 28-ball half-century.Bairstow even hogged the strike from there for the rest of the partnership, with plenty of swipes and lofted sixes on the leg side, mixed with technically-correct drives and punches when required.Bairstow was equally punishing off Colin de Grandhomme, dispatching two slower short balls for six.Exactly three overs after Warner brought up his 32-ball fifty in the 13th over, Bairstow reached his century with a couple off Barman.He celebrated the milestone the way Warner does – with a running leap and helmet in his hand.His first 50 runs saw more runs through fours (nine) than sixes (one), but his acceleration from 50 to 100 featured four sixes and only three fours.Barman returned to bowl the 16th, and conceded 20, the most expensive over of the innings.Bairstow fell soon after, but the damage had been done. Warner was on 70 off 42 balls then with 21 deliveries to go.From there, he struck Siraj and Umesh for sixes, and ran several singles and doubles even after he had batted through a hot Hyderabad afternoon.With a single on the last ball of the 19th over, he had six balls to face and seven to get to century.By steering a low full toss past short third man for four, Warner showed the original celebratory leap for his fourth IPL hundred.Siraj’s 0 for 38 were the most economical figures of the innings.
