Asensio gave Los Blancos the lead after just 11 minutes, but the home side quickly recovered from the setback to take control. Algerian full-back Aissa Mandi stunned Real with an equaliser after 34 minutes, and Nacho put the ball into his own net three minutes later to make it 2-1 to Betis. Real coach Zinedine Zidane was animated in his technical area in the second half, and his side quickly responded with a quick double to ease tensions. Sergio Ramos rose above his marker to head home five minutes into the second half, and the lead was claimed as Asensio netted shortly before the hour mark. The game had suddenly turned full circle, and Real appeared hungry as they chased more goals. Ronaldo had skated around the periphery of the match, but the Portuguese legend made no mistake as he fired home after 65 minutes. The game was provided a late twist as Betis were rewarded for their positivity. Sergio Leon found the back of the net to make it 4-3, as the home fans burst back into life in the final moments after a period of calm. Real had the last laugh as substitute Karim Benzema burst forward, and the striker put the game to bed with his team's fifth. Atletico left it late in their match at the Wanda Metropolitano, as they scored twice in the second half to beat Athletic Club. Antoine Griezmann fed Kevin Gameiro for the opener after 67 minutes, with the visitors' rearguard action holding firm through half-time. Gameiro went from goalscorer to provider with 10 minutes remaining as he set up Diego Costa to double Atleti's lead. Real Sociedad were quickly out of the traps in their encounter with Levante, grabbing a 10th-minute lead through Xabi Prieto's penalty. Imanol Agirretxe had been fouled by Sasa Lukic in the box, allowing the hosts to claim the best possible start. Levante played like a team near the bottom of the league, and La Real were two goals up after Juanmi struck seven minutes before half-time. Sergio Canales' good work was rewarded as the 24-year-old slotted home from close range. Canales added a third for Sociedad after 55 minutes, killing the game as a spectacle, but Levante were well beaten before they began their trip back to Valencia. Espanyol rescued a point at home to Villarreal, scoring with just five minutes remaining to disappoint the visitors. Rodri's 25th-minute effort had given the Yellow Submarine the lead, but Esteban Granero was the hero for the Catalan side as his free-kick found the bottom corner at the conclusion of the match. http://las-vegas-town.ipub.us/news/1660248-la-liga-table-2018-week-24-standings-and-final-scores-after Sun, 18 2018 21:53:20 GMT http://las-vegas-town.ipub.us/news/1660248-la-liga-table-2018-week-24-standings-and-final-scores-after Estudio demuestra que la MLS es más competitiva que las grandes ligas de Europa http://las-vegas-town.ipub.us/news/1660033-estudio-demuestra-que-la-mls-es-mas-competitiva-que-las-gran Sun, 18 2018 19:11:08 GMT http://las-vegas-town.ipub.us/news/1660033-estudio-demuestra-que-la-mls-es-mas-competitiva-que-las-gran After A Call To Action From Student Emma Gonzalez, Florida Activists Take On Gun Laws Three days after 17 people were fatally shot in her Florida high school, Emma Gonzalez stood before a Fort Lauderdale, FL gun control rally and called BS on lawmakers' "thoughts and prayers." She should have been at home grieving her classmates, she said, "but instead we are up here standing together because if all our government and president can do is send thoughts and prayers, then it's time for victims to be the change that we need to see."A 19-year-old gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on Wednesday, killing 14 students and three staff members, and injuring 14 others. The suspect was arrested and charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder. In the wake of the third mass shooting to take place in a U.S. school in the first two months of 2018, Marjory Stoneman Douglas students such as Gonzalez are calling for stricter gun control measures to prevent other students from living through the same tragedy."Politicians who sit in their gilded House and Senate seats funded by the NRA telling us nothing could have been done to prevent this, we call B.S.," Gonzalez said at the rally on Saturday. "They say tougher guns laws do not decrease gun violence. We call B.S.... They say no laws could have prevented the hundreds of senseless tragedies that have occurred. We call B.S.""They say that tougher gun laws do not decrease gun violence. We call BS!" Florida high school shooting survivor Emma Gonzalez calls on President Trump and lawmakers to tighten gun restrictions in impassioned speech at an anti-gun rally in Fort Lauderdale https://t.co/DgnqrrVs9x— CNN (@CNN) February 17, 2018 Other Marjory Stoneman Douglas students called BS on pro-gun advocates' Twitter arguments that the issue "isn't about a gun it's about another lunatic." And dozens of students from another Florida high school held a rally to call for gun reform, telling Refinery29: "Our message is simple: We want to stop the gun violence."But increased gun control in Florida won't come easily. Despite Florida Governor Rick Scott telling CNN "everything's on the table " when it comes to gun reform in the state, he wouldn't explicitly say he supports stricter gun control laws. Scott has an A+ rating from the National Rifle Association's (NRA) Political Victory Fund, which stated in 2014 that he's "signed more pro-gun bills into law in one term than any other governor in Florida history." It's not just Scott who has the NRA's support, either; congressional and presidential candidates from Florida received a total of $834,165 from the NRA’s Political Victory Fund in the 2016 election, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.Currently, 18-year-olds can buy AR-15 rifles — originally designed for military use — without a waiting period in the state, while anyone seeking to buy a handgun must wait three days. Like most states, Florida also has “Stand Your Ground” laws that allow people to use deadly force to defend themselves against a perceived threat, as well as laws permitting people to carry concealed guns in public.I was hiding in a closet for 2 hours. It was about guns. You weren't there, you don't know how it felt. Guns give these disgusting people the ability to kill other human beings. This IS about guns and this is about all the people who had their life abruptly ended because of guns. https://t.co/XnzhvuN1zd— carly (@car_nove) February 15, 2018 Florida's pro-gun laws have strong public support, too. As The New York Times' Richard A. Oppel Jr. reports: "Nearly two million residents have permits to carry concealed weapons, far more than any other state."Florida is less an anomaly than an apt representation of the problems activists fighting for gun control face nationwide. After a mass shooting at Orlando's Pulse nightclub in 2016 that killed 49 people and another at the Fort Lauderdale airport in 2017 that killed five, no substantial gun reform laws were passed. The same inaction has been seen in Congress: Lawmakers failed to pass restrictions on bump stocks (which outfit semi-automatic rifles to fire more like automatic rifles) after 58 people were fatally shot in Las Vegas.Gonzalez, many of her classmates, and other gun control activists believe enough is enough. On March 14, students and teachers will stage a national school walkout organized by the Women's March to demand Congress take action. And on March 24, activists will take to the streets in Washington D.C. in a March For Our Lives rally demanding the same.Establishing stricter gun control measures in the U.S. certainly won't be easy, but activists think it's about time students stop dying in their classrooms.Like what you see?
