The husband of Michelle Caruso-Cabrera funds the anti-AOC Super PAC

The husband of a GOP supporter from main Democratic challenger Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who challenged had pumped money into the Super PAC which was intended to end a congressional career inciting freshmen at one time, campaign notes revealed.

Michelle Caruso-Cabrera’s husband, Republican investment banker and donor Stephen Dizard, is listed as the largest donor in the Super PAC named Fight For Our Communities, according to an initial report submitted to the Federal Election Commission.

Dizard contributed two donations totaling $ 30,000 in April – nearly three-quarters of the $ 42,500 collected.

But the group has received more donations since April, the amount of which will be reported in the next FEC filing, which is due June 20, three days before the main election for the Bronx-Queens congressional seat.

Super PACs can receive unlimited contributions from individuals, companies, trade unions or other political action committees for the purpose of advocating for or against candidates.

But the action cannot be carried out “in consultation or in collaboration with any candidate,” said FEC spokeswoman Judith Ingram.

A source close to the pro-Caruso-Cabrera / anti-AOC group – who asked for anonymity – would only say “we will be involved” when asked whether the group would finance advertisements or mailers who attacked Congress members before meeting themselves in the final ballot on Tuesday, June 23.

Wednesday marks the fifth day of nine consecutive days of preliminary voting before Primary Day, while many New Yorkers send ballots that were not present during the coronavirus pandemic. That means many people in the 14th Congress District have voted – possibly limiting the impact of the 11-hour attack on the AOC.

The source said, the AOC vote record for two years would certainly be a fair game.

Caruso-Cabrera has criticized the democratic socialist voice of Ocasio-Cortez against the COVID-19 aid package and its opposition to the canceled Amazon plan to find a new base along the Queens edge.

The two argued in two virtual debates during the coronavirus pandemic, but Caruso-Cabrera criticized the first-term congressman for refusing to participate in the third private debate sponsored by the Parkchester Times.

Ocasio-Cortez surprised politics in 2018 when he overthrew former Congressman and Democratic Party chairman Queens Joe Crowley in the party’s primary election. Since then he has become a rising star in the political wing.

Dizard and Caruso-Cabrera were married in 2014 and now live in Sunnyside, Queens, in the congressional district.

Dizard has donated more than $ 400,000 to Republicans since 1990 and $ 130,500 since 2014, according to FEC data.

She donated $ 24,000 for “Winning Women 2016” – PAC which funded Republican female candidates including: northern New York Rep. Elise Stefanik, former Virginia Rep. Barbara Comstock, former New Hampshire Senator Kelly Ayotte, Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski, Tennessee Senator Marsha Blackburn, and Arizona Senator Martha McSally.

He also donated $ 2,700 to Florida GOP Senator Marco Rubio’s campaign for president in 2016.

The expedition will explore "an area still little known": the Portuguese Sea.

The Oceano Azul Foundation has joined the municipalities of Cascais, Mafra and Sintra and set off together this Saturday on the ship “Santa Maria Manuela” for a scientific expedition that will last until 12 October.

On board will be 50 researchers from institutions such as the Portuguese Institute of the Sea and Atmosphere (IPMA), the Hydrographic Institute or the Portuguese Society for the Study of Birds (SPEA). During this time, scientists will embark on what they consider to be an “essential” process of “investigating the region’s natural values” that will allow for a “global assessment of the marine biodiversity” that exists in that region of the ocean.

Every Portuguese wastes 183 kg of food a year, and this is “inconceivable”.

Every Portuguese wastes 183 kg of food a year, and this is "inconceivable".

President of the Portuguese Federation of Food Banks Against Hunger Isabelle Jonet considers food waste unacceptable and absurd, as every Portuguese wastes 183 kg of food a year.

As World Food Loss and Waste Awareness Day is celebrated, speaking at a conference on the subject in Lisbon, the official recalled statistics released by the National Statistical Institute and said the situation was “worse than expected.”

The data, official and published for the first time, refers to 2020 and shows that 1.89 million tons of food was wasted in Portugal this year, so each Portuguese wasted an average of 183.6 kilograms of food.

INE statistics show that families spend the most. The figures show that over 1.2 million tons of food was wasted by families this year, followed by catering with over 237 thousand tons, trade and distribution with 214 thousand tons, primary production with over 101 thousand tons and food . industry, about 61 thousand tons.

“We buy too much, we buy bad, we let it go bad. It is unacceptable that a third of what is produced ends up in the trash,” the official said, speaking at a debate organized by the United Movement Against Waste.

Ana Cristina Carrola of the Portuguese Environmental Protection Agency (APA), who also took part in the debate, stressed that the average amount of waste per year per inhabitant in the European Union is 173 kg, less than the 183 kg that is thrown away by the Portuguese.

“This is unthinkable in our day,” he lamented.
