With markets currently being volatile and the possibility that at least some listed companies may not survive, putting your money to work in stocks right now takes guts.Today, however, I’m picking out 10 top-tier stocks that I’d feel comfortable buying now and holding until 2030.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Defensive demonsAlthough the near-term may present challenges to even the most resilient, globally-diversified companies, firms such as Unilever and Diageo should emerge relatively unscathed. Even if the panic-buying witnessed over the last few weeks is (thankfully) unlikely to last, it’s clear that consumers will continue to prioritise spending on food and household items for the foreseeable future.With a portfolio bursting with brands such as Persil and Dove, that should keep earnings relatively steady at Unilever.The same goes for Diageo. Despite the enforced closure of pubs and bars, there will still be plenty of drinking going on at home. And when this is all over, the desire to socialise over a beverage or two will surely return in force.Power provider National Grid is another stock I’d consider buying. As dull as utility stocks are, they do have a habit of holding their own during troubled times. They’re also a fairly safe choice for income hunters. Right now, the Grid yields 5.4%.Healthcare heroesAside from those with great brands, there are other stocks — most notably related to healthcare, safety or hygiene — that could make great investments over the short and long term.With its 5.4% dividend yield, GlaxoSmithKline would be my preferred pick in the pharmaceutical space. Medical devices manufacturer Smith & Nephew looks good too, especially as it only revealed market-beating revenue and profits back in February. The hip and knee implant maker might also be a good play on the longer-term ‘ageing populations’ theme.Despite their still-frothy price tags, safety product maker Halma and pest control firm Rentokil Initial would likely make the cut too. I can’t see demand for any of their services drying up. Indeed, I think it will be the opposite!High qualityMy remaining picks are more cyclical. However, what they may lack in traditional defensiveness, they more than make up for in quality. Again, adopting a long-term perspective is vital here.Like nearly all retailers, 164-year-old luxury brand Burberry has been forced to close stores across the world. Once the coronavirus has passed, however, I suspect its products will be as much in demand as ever, particularly in Asia. It may even become a takeover target. In the meantime, the company’s financials look robust, at least relative to sector peers.While the extent to which the crisis will impact the UK housing market is unclear, I’d be eyeing up property portal Rightmove as well. Perpetually prohibitively expensive, the £4bn cap generates unparalleled returns on the money it invests. It’s also succeeded in protecting its massive market share for many years.My final pick is not a single company stock at all. Tech-focused Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust gives exposure to high-growth giants such as US giants Amazon and Tesla.Although the sector is prone to hype, the returns made by the trust over the last 10 years have been superb and far above that generated by the FTSE 100 (indicating that the trust’s managers are assured stock-pickers). As an existing holder, I’m hoping this will continue for the next 10 years. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Image source: BAE Systems Shares of Signature Aviation (LSE: SIG) jumped over 40% last Thursday following the announcement of a potential cash offer for the entire business. Despite appearances, the proposed acquisition has not yet been accepted and may not even happen. So here’s what you need to know.A cash offer for Signature AviationBlackstone and Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP) have issued proposals to Signature Aviation’s management team to buy out the entire business using cash. The bid from GIP was lower than Blackstone’s offer and therefore has been rejected.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…If approved, shareholders would receive £3.86 per share in the form of cash. This represents an acquisition premium of 44% compared to the closing price before the announcement was made. And so the share price has surged by almost the same amount.Blackstone has until January 14 to confirm whether it wishes to proceed with its offer to acquire Signature Aviation. If it does, Signature’s management will review the proposal and make a formal recommendation to shareholders whether to accept or reject the offer. A majority shareholder vote will be required to proceed, as well as approval from market regulators such as the Financial Conduct Authority.The official stance from the company seems to be leaning towards accepting the deal. It has made a formal recommendation to Blackstone to confirm an offer at the price set in its initial proposal. This would indicate that it’s likely to accept the deal if the price remains the same. But, as the negotiations are still ongoing, management is currently recommending that investors should take no action at this time.What to expect in the near futureJust like the rest of the aerospace industry, Signature Aviation has been heavily impacted by Covid-19. The firm provides premium full-service flight support for the Business and General Aviation (BG&A) market. This includes refuelling, ground handling, concierge services, and passenger/pilot amenities. With most flights being grounded, business has been slow.But, thanks to the recent sale of its Ontic division, it was able to clear the majority of its near-term obligations. As a result, the earliest maturity date of the remaining debt is not until 2025.Why does this matter? The current stock price has been elevated by expectations of an acquisition early next year. Suppose the proposed deal falls apart? In that case, the 40% boost to the share price may disappear as shareholder expectations are not met. But the underlying business remains financially sound, and thus this decline may only be temporary.Is it a good deal?Let’s ignore the cash offer for a moment. Fundamentally, the business looks healthy with plenty of room left for growth over the long term. While short-term disruptions have created problems, the stock’s strong liquidity should be able to see it through the remainder of the pandemic.The cash offer presents an opportunity for investors to close their positions at a seemingly reasonable price in today’s market climate. But even if this acquisition fails to materialise, the company appears to have everything it needs to grow over the next decade. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Planting, tending, harvesting and preserving food in the organic gardens has become a favorite activity among campers of all ages. Photo: Camp Stevens staff[Diocese of Los Angeles] For Tim Alderson, the new executive director of “Seeds of Hope,” coordinating efforts to feed the hungry and undernourished throughout the diocese is a pretty simple equation—lots of churches have available land, lots of people need food — so, he says, “Let’s get to work.”That “three million people, including a quarter of all the children, living in the six-county Diocese of Los Angeles don’t know where their next meal is coming from” is reason enough to get started right away, according to Alderson.“The impacts on individuals and communities from food- related disorders are devastating. The problems are so pervasive that there is not one of us in the diocese who is not affected,” he said in a recent interview.“We are all in this together; we can farm the diocese,” said Alderson, a third-generation California farmer. “We can take an agricultural view of our 139 neighborhood congregations, 40 schools and 20 other specialized service institutions, seeing the abundant food-producing potential lying dormant here.”Since Bishop Diocesan Jon Bruno announced this latest Hands in Healing ministry initiative Alderson has visited community gardens from Camp Stevens in Julian to the Abundant Table Farm’s project in Oxnard and lots of places in between.“I’ve been to about 30 locations and since then I’ve learned of about three or four others,” he said. He also has gathered representatives from congregations growing food and launched ambitious efforts to work with a Christian, Jewish and Muslim interfaith farm project.Bruno said the impetus for Seeds of Hope grew out of seeing in many neighborhoods of the diocese “on a daily basis the demand for food distribution serving families, seniors and others in need.“While many of our congregations have been involved for some time in reaching out to meet these needs, additional parishes and missions now are expressing a desire to get started in the area of community garden and food distribution. These new start-ups can benefit greatly by learning from long-time providers.“We don’t need a lot of acres, we just need commitment,” he added.No effort is too small, says Alderson, who envisions growing food in everything from window boxes and rooftop gardens to “farm scale food production in our rural areas.”Already, the ministry is blossoming.“Prince of Peace Church in Woodland Hills is a great example,” he says, of the way the ministry has already exploded into wonderful possibilities.The church is a host site for the West Valley Food Pantry, an interfaith coalition of ten congregations in the west San Fernando Valley providing emergency food to the area’s needy and homeless. Volunteer-operated, it serves balanced food packages to more than 4,000 people, or 37,000 meals each month, according to the church website.During Alderson’s initial site visit to Prince of Peace he noted that “they had a nice vegetable garden and … a big chunk of unused land.” Congregational representatives told him they’d thought of possibly planting an orchard. A few days later, Alderson received a donation of 150 fruit trees. He managed to secure a drip irrigation system and planting help; the orchard was dedicated April 21 during regular 10 a.m. Sunday worship.“A little creative thinking and a couple of generous gifts, and now they will be able to produce as much as 25,000 servings of fresh fruit for their food pantry clients each year from land that seemed to have already been put to full and productive use as a church,” Alderson said. “To do this with resources we didn’t even notice before is almost miraculous.”An interfaith outreachAlderson’s connection with Netiya, a Jewish network with interfaith partners dedicated to advancing urban agriculture in synagogues, schools and nonprofit organizations in Los Angeles, has also sparked a potential interfaith collaboration.It all started when the Goldhirsh Foundation issued an L.A. 2050 Challenge (www.la2050.org) offering several $100,000 grant opportunities to organizations participating in shaping a healthy future city. Alderson scrambled to submit a proposal on time and reached out electronically to the diocese, asking for votes when the foundation decided on a social media funding approach.“We proposed three pilot projects to plant orchards in three different types of locations — urban, suburban, with different demographics, at a church, at a synagogue, at a mosque,” he said.Although they didn’t get the grant – it went to a city parks project – the interfaith connection continues.Roots in faith, farmingAlderson’s vision is that Seeds of Hope will help to “plan and coordinate our food production and distribution on a diocesan scale, targeting production geographically and seasonally according to need,” he said.Interns and volunteers at The Abundant Table farm in Oxnard gather produce for “shares” to be provided to local subscribers through its “Join the Farm” program. The Abundant Table is a ministry of the Episcopal chaplaincy at California State University at Channel Islands. Photo: The Abundant TableThat will include providing practical, how-to garden support and resources, including an internet-based forum for the exchange of ideas and information as well as volunteer crews to move around the diocese for planting, tending, harvesting, packing and delivering food, Alderson said.He also is eagerly anticipating the upcoming clergy conference, hoping to begin a conversation among clergy, scholars and theologians that will result in a Christian theology of food.Alderson, 52, “was born on a farm in Salinas, and started working in the fields at age 11.” He founded AgriGator Inc., a multi-national soil amendment company and is a former senior warden at the Church of Our Saviour in San Gabriel.“Community gardens on church property create an amazing opportunity for outreach and congregational development,” he said. There is potential for community empowerment, cross-cultural understanding, and spiritual practice, he added.The Rev. Julie Morris of the Abundant Table Farm Project attended Alderson’s “first-steps” gathering of food growers held earlier this year at the Cathedral Center of St. Paul.She said that one of the greatest surprises of farming is “that the closer you get to working the land, the more the Bible and liturgy make sense. We are constantly saying, ‘Oh, now the Eucharist makes sense. Now, the Bible makes sense.’ The light bulbs go off.“God comes to us in food,” she added. “Every day, we hold up bread and wine and say ‘this is Jesus’ and how does that inform meals we have around our own tables at home? What are the connections?”A ministry of agricultureFor Alderson, the connections are many.No stranger to coordinating garden networks, Alderson was the founding chairman of the California School Garden Network of some 40 public and private organizations that secured funding for more than 4,000 school gardens.The group also developed extensive training for educators, and created lesson plans aligned to the state standards for teaching all core subjects, kindergarten through 12th grade, in a garden setting, along with numerous other accomplishments.While he’d much rather talk about his vision for Seeds of Hope than himself or why he accepted this new role, Alderson will say this: “The short answer is, it means a lot to me.“The longer answer is, it has to do with my farming roots and my personal faith. Growing food and giving it to those in need is very satisfying. It’s a tangible expression of my own personal faith,” he said.Alderson currently serves as president of the Schools Agriculture and Nutrition Program, appointed first by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and then again by Governor Jerry Brown.Schwarzenegger also appointed him to the Governor’s Summit on Health Nutrition and Obesity, and former State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell appointed him to his California School Garden Advisory Committee.He has previously served on the board of directors of the National Agri-Marketing Association and as a member of the education committee of the Fresh Produce and Floral Council, the school garden steering committee of Western Growers Association and the education resources committee of the California Foundation for Agriculture in the Classroom.He is also a past member of the Soil Science Society of America, the Crop Science Society of America, the American Society of Agronomy, and the California Agricultural Production Consultants Association.He is married to Tracy and has two sons, Evan and Trevor. He lives in Pasadena, where he has served as chairman of the Recreation and Parks Commission and was appointed by the mayor to the city’s Workforce Housing Task Force.He earned a bachelor of arts degree from Biola University and has also studied at the University of Judaism and the General Theological Seminary of the Episcopal Church.One of the biggest surprises about Seeds of Hope thus far is that it’s been a way to reconnect “with my 82-year-old dad, who has Alzheimers,” he said. “This project has really lit him up.” Phina Borgeson says: Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Director of Music Morristown, NJ Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Featured Jobs & Calls The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Smithfield, NC Rector Tampa, FL Rector Collierville, TN Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI By Pat McCaughanPosted May 29, 2013 Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Seeds of Hope: ‘We can farm the diocese’ An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Knoxville, TN Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector Pittsburgh, PA Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Washington, DC The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Albany, NY Curate Diocese of Nebraska Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Youth Minister Lorton, VA Comments are closed.

We wanted to make a light-filled house connected to the garden – and a family home that had space to live and work in. The idea was to place a top-lit stair in the middle of the plan, with a private buffer to one side (to the road), and the living spaces to the other (to the garden). This sandwiched the living spaces between the garden and the circulation zone and made the connection to the outside. The clients had asked about making a terrace adjacent to their bedroom for a morning coffee, and this tied the roof heights of the extension into the existing floor levels.Save this picture!© Emanuelis StasaitisThe existing house had a convoluted set of internal corridors and dark rooms, despite having large elevations facing east, south, and west.

Portantino introduced Resolution, SCR 8, which will name the segment of the CA-134 freeway between the Glendale CA-2 and the Interstate 210 Freeway the “President Barack H. Obama Freeway”.President Obama attended Occidental College in Eagle Rock from 1979 to 1981 and lived in Pasadena during his sophomore year. His attendance at Occidental College influenced his political trajectory and led him to become one of our most revered and respected Presidents in American history.For his contributions as a community activist, constitutional scholar, United States Senator and President, it is only fitting to honor our 44th President by naming a part of a freeway he most certainly used while living in the area, Portantino said.Over this past weekend, local activists in the 25th Senate District suggested to Portantino that given the President’s connection to Southern California and Eagle Rock in particular, it would be appropriate to memorialize his time in Southern California with a freeway naming.Portantino said he has spoken with Asm. Jimmy Gomez who currently represents Eagle Rock and he will be joining Portantino on this resolution. Portantino represented Eagle Rock while in the Assembly.“I am honored to be in a position to bring appropriate respect to President Obama’s leadership, his fond memories of living in the 25th Senate District, his college days in the 51st Assembly District and his tremendous legacy.

Comments are closed. Manyemployees view their annual appraisal with a mixture of ambivalence andcynicism. One reason for this is that the appraiser can abuse the exercise byusing it to highlight an employee’s performance failings and as a forum forcriticism. Fortunately, the shift from appraisal as a retrospective assessmentof performance towards a forward-looking, joint discussion about developmentmeans managers and employees have an opportunity to transform the annual ritualinto a meaningful and profitable experience.PersonnelToday’s recent report, UK Line Managers, Are they good enough?, in conjunctionwith Richmond Events and Computers In Personnel, reveals 68 per cent of linemanagers handle their organisations’ performance management, compared to 32 percent of HR professionals. Worryingly,performance management is highlighted by the HR respondents as one of linemanagers’ problem areas. HR’s role is not only to create the template for anorganisation’s appraisals and implement appropriate feedback systems, but alsoto lead by example. HR should, therefore, be the most expertly appraiseddepartment in the company.Preparationis everythingAppraisalsoften fail as a result of lack of preparation on the part of the appraiser.It’s unrealistic to expect the appraisee to take the exercise seriously if youhaven’t even bothered to go through their appraisal from last year, so makethat your starting point. Familiarise yourself with their employment history.If you are well prepared you could improve communication, put your relationshipwith the employee on a better footing and make them feel better about work.Yourorganisation may have a formalised structure in place to elicit furtherinformation, such as a multi-sourced feedback or full-blown 360-degree appraisalsystem (if not, then consider putting one in place). If the feedback throws upinconsistencies, such as wildly differing views on an employee’s performance,leave adequate time before the appraisal to investigate further.Anticipateany questions or problem areas that will arise during the exercise. Avoid beingtoo prescriptive but the employee, reasonably, will expect you to have answersto all of their questions.Tomaximise the benefit of the appraisal exercise, it is not unreasonable toexpect some preparation on the part of the employee, too. Get them to list inadvance their strengths and weaknesses, achievements as well as performancehighs and lows for the previous 12 months.Createa framework for the appraisalThisis the template HR should set for the entire organisation. Recognise that theexercise should be stimulating, not stifling, so while imposing a structure itis essential to retain a degree of flexibility.Atypical framework will allow for the following:–A general introduction, stating the purpose of the appraisal–To review objectives set at the last appraisal and a forthright and honestdiscussion as to whether they have been met–If the objectives have not been met, to highlight any difficulties and how theycan be resolved or dealt with –Outline and agree future objectives–To formulate a personal development plan (PDP) for the year ahead and how itwill be achieved–To identify any training and development required by the appraisee to meetthose objectives–Sufficient time for the employee to discuss concerns.Therecan be a tendency to assume too much from the exercise but the employee willexpect to:–Receive constructive feedback on their performance–Understand what their objectives are for the year ahead–Be made aware what their career prospects are for the year ahead and in thefuture–Be able to air grievances about management or the organisation without itaffecting their prospects–Be able to discuss salary frankly–Above all, to feel notice has been taken of what they have said.Whatshould I do if bad feeling or hostility arises?Oneway to avoid such unpleasant- ness is to frequently discuss performance anddevelopment throughout the year. Regular informal chats with employees can alsoprovide early indications of any discontent or resentment so they don’tsuddenly, and confrontationally, surface in the appraisal.Makesure you listen to what is being said. “Listen to what appraisees say andignore how they say it,” says Terry Gillen, author of Exercises inAppraisal and Performance Development. “More than a good appraisal, peoplewant a fair appraisal; they want confidence in their appraiser. Activelistening forms an essential foundation.”Alwayskeep the discussion on the track of the appraisee’s performance anddevelopment. Be assertive about it if necessary.Wherecan I get more info?Books–The Appraisal Discussion, Terry Gillen, Chartered Institute of Personnel andDevelopment (CIPD),£6.99, ISBN 0852927517–Exercises in Appraisal & Performance Development, Terry Gillen, CIPD,£175, ISBN 0852927738ReportsUKLine Managers, Are they good enough?

His website iswww.terrygillen.co.uk DoHR and line managers work closely enough in terms of developing their appraisalskills?Unfortunatelynot, and HR is often its own worst enemy in this regard. All too frequently,appraisal training focuses on the formal processes and documentation and not onday-to-day performance management skills. Where managers are trained in thelatter, coaching and staff development, formal appraisal is what it should be –an overview of conversations that have already taken place.Whatare common failings when conducting appraisals?The‘mother’ of them all is the appraiser doesn’t know what performance theyactually want. (Here is a challenge for readers: describe three fictitiousstaff, one whose performance is acceptable, one under par and one who is verygood. If you can’t begin immediately, you’re thinking about it for the firsttime). Another is to think of giving feedback as an end in itself: it isn’t. Itis a step towards modifying behaviour and improving performance. Lastly, theappraiser sees it as an HR process. It isn’t. It is about what good managers doanyway.Whatqualities and characteristics make for good appraisers? Feedbackand performance development is part of their day-to-day management style. Soformal appraisal is just an ‘overview’ of what they already do. They know whatperformance they want from staff in terms of both inputs (what they do and howthey do it) and outputs (the results they achieve). They see themselves as aperformance coach not a performance police officer, and enjoy developing peopleand seeing them move on (knowing talented people will always want to work forthem). They see performance management as part of their job, not something theysqueeze in once a year.

Written by Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailMaddie Meyer/Getty Images(BOSTON) — Retired Red Sox icon David Ortiz underwent a second surgery at a Boston hospital for injuries suffered when he was shot in the back Sunday night at a bar in the Dominican Republic in what appeared to be a targeted ambush attack, the former baseball player’s wife said in a statement Tuesday.“David arrived at Massachusetts General Hospital last night and underwent a successful second surgery. He is stable, awake, and resting comfortably this morning in the ICU where he is expected to remain for the next several days,” Ortiz’s wife, Tiffany Ortiz, said in a statement.Ortiz, 43, had been airlifted to Boston Monday night on a medical air ambulance chartered by the Red Sox. He first underwent surgery at a hospital in the Dominican Republic, where “Big Papi” was born and raised.Tiffany Ortiz thanked the Red Sox owner, John Henry, and his wife, Linda, and the team’s management for rallying around her husband. She also expressed appreciation to Dr. Larry Ronan and his staff at Massachusetts General for caring for Ortiz.“Lastly, I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support and love that we have received during this incredible difficult time,” her statement reads. “We ask for privacy as David works towards recovery.”Shortly after he was shot, Ortiz was taken to Abel Gonzalez Center for Advanced Medicine in Santo Domingo, where he underwent his first surgery. Ortiz’s father told reporters the bullet entered his son’s back and exited through his abdomen.Dr. Abel Gonzalez, who performed the surgery, said part of Ortiz’s intestines and liver were removed.The shooting unfolded Sunday night at the Dial Bar and Lounge, a nightclub in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic.Security camera footage acquired by ABC News shows the gunman coming up behind Ortiz and opening fire at close range. The footage shows people scattering after gunfire erupted and Ortiz, who had been sitting at the outdoor bar, appear to grab his side and then collapse.A man who allegedly confessed to playing a role in the shooting was identified by police as 25-year-old Eddy Feliz Garcia.Garcia reportedly confessed to being involved in the shooting, according to Frank Félix Duran, a spokesman for the Dominican Republic National Police. Duran declined to elaborate on what the suspect told the police, or if he was the man seen in the video pulling the trigger.Police are searching for a second suspect.Garcia apparently tried to flee the nightclub after the shooting, but onlookers immediately stopped and attacked him before he was turned over to police and taken to a hospital for treatment. He was released into police custody and has yet to be charged in connection with the shooting.On Monday night at Boston’s Fenway Park, the Red Sox and the team’s fans made it clear that their beloved “Big Papi” was in their thoughts and prayers.Prior to the start of the Red Sox game, a moment of reflection was held for Ortiz, a 10-time All-Star and a member of three Red Sox World Series championship teams. A message reading “We send our love to David Ortiz” was flashed on one of the ballpark’s scoreboards.Fans held up letters spelling out Ortiz’s name, and many showed up at the game wearing his No. 34 jersey.“They talk about superheroes without capes and he’s a superhero without a cape,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora, who a former teammate of Ortiz’s in Boston, said during a pregame news conference.Another one of Ortiz’s former Red Sox teammates, Hall of Fame pitcher Pedro Martinez, who also hails from the Dominican Republic, broke down in tears while talking about Ortiz on Monday night during a broadcast on the MLB Network.“I don’t have enough words to describe who David is, what David means to baseball,” Martinez said on air. “But I’m so disappointed to know that someone like David, who saved so many lives, can have someone after his life. And I’m sorry. I’m sorry. But it hurts me. It hurts me.“I just can’t take it,” Martinez added. “I’m here sitting with you guys and I’m trying to have fun, but my heart is with David, with his family, with everybody that cares about David. Because just one coward out there that wanted to do that to someone that didn’t deserve it.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
