Former Florida International football player Emmanuel Lubin dies in car accident, school says
Former FIU defensive back Emmanuel Lubin died in a car accident Saturday night, the school announced Sunday.
Lubin, 21, was a North Miami, Florida, native and attended North Miami Beach Senior High School before heading to FIU. In 2018, he started 13 games at defensive back as part of a school-record nine-win campaign and set career highs in tackles (31) and tackles-for-loss (2.5) with four pass breakups.
"Tragically, we lost a great young man in Emmanuel Lubin last night," FIU coach head coach Butch Davis said in a statement. "He was a hard worker, great teammate and was respected and loved by his teammates, coaches and staff at FIU. His character, work ethic and leadership were instrumental in leading our program to success these past two seasons. Our football program is mourning his loss and we will honor Emmanuel every day moving forward. Our hearts and prayers go out to his friends and family."

Hong Kong Protesters Attacked in Train Station Near China Border
In this article
As the protest in Hong Kong entered its sixth week, the spotlight turned to Yuen Long, a little-known suburb that’s closer to Shenzhen along the mainland Chinese border than the city’s central area.
Fights broke out in the Yuen Long metro station miles away from the main protests after groups of men in white shirts attacked passengers with sticks and umbrellas. They targeted people dressed in black, the preferred color of demonstrators.
Lam Cheuk-ting, a Democratic Party lawmaker, was among those injured. He posted pictures of a cut on his lower lip on his Facebookpage, and spoke to reporters at Tuen Mun Hospital early Monday morning wearing bandages on his cheek and right arm, which he said was hurt while blocking multiple hits by wooden sticks wielded by attackers.
Lam said he was targeted when as many as 30 attackers in white shirts assaulted passengers on the train. He called the situation “extremely serious” and he’s concerned the aggressors — some in their 20s and others as old as their 60s — may be tied to triad gangs. They also ignored his warning that the police were arriving and continued to beat passengers with three-foot-long clubs.
President Donald Trump Tweetstorm – The Sunday Edition
President Donald Trump has reached out once again to slam The Squad, the four female Congresswomen who have been at odds with his policies.
In today’s tweetstorm, the President gave them what may be his harshest rebuke yet:
“I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country. They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!”
The polarizing quote further divides the country into for/against mode. Some say the back and forth is part of Trump’s tactic to align The Squad as the radical face and platform of the eventual Democratic party presidential nominee. Others claim it’s part of a racist campaign designed to shore up the base.
Whatever the truth, it’s clear that it’s not going to go away quietly, even as Democratic leaders plead with The Squad to tone it down and deal with things in a lower profile way.
The tweetstorm so far:
