Woman placed on leave at work after Central Park viral video



Woman placed on leave at work after Central Park viral video

An investment company that hired a white woman who went viral after calling the police to a black man in Central Park on Monday had put her on administrative leave.

“We take this matter very seriously, and we do not condone racism in any form,” said a statement from Franklin Templeton.

“While we were in the process of investigating the situation, the employees involved were given administrative leave.”

The woman in the video was identified in the report as Amy Cooper. A screenshot of his LinkedIn account shared on Twitter identifies him as the head of insurance investment solutions at Franklin Templeton.

Cooper later apologized for the incident in a telephone interview with NBC New York.

“I sincerely and humbly apologize to everyone, especially to the man, his family,” he told the network. “That is unacceptable and I humbly and fully apologize to everyone who saw the video, everyone who was offended … everyone who considered me in a lower light and I understand why they did it.”

The man who could be heard in the video, Christian Cooper, said he asked Amy to tie the dog, and when he didn’t, he offered the dog a gift.

“The only way they can keep dogs from eating food is to tie it up,” he told NBC. “At some point, he decided I would play a racing card, I think.”

Amy told the network that she felt threatened because she did not know what made the dog.

Social media users have also accused Amy of cruelty to animals, as seen in an interesting video and dragging a dog that is struggling with her neck.

“The dog is now in the care of our savior and he is safe and in good health,” the group said.

The shelter also did not openly identify the woman or link her to the Central Park incident. Request comments from the group were not immediately returned.

Amy Cooper does not return phone calls from The Post.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
