WASHINGTON - Members of Haiti's diaspora expressed concerns Tuesday about the country’s ongoing insecurity, the economic crisis and the lack of information about the new draft constitution, during a virtual event hosted by the Haitian Embassy in Washington. The two-hour event, streamed live on Facebook, got off to a late start and struggled with technical issues. But it offered the diaspora an opportunity to ask Haiti's top election officials questions about the draft constitution, which includes new privileges and representation for Haitians living abroad. A small group of people at the embassy, who were socially distanced and wearing face masks due to COVID-19 restrictions, asked questions. Others submitted questions on social media. President Jovenel Moise said a new constitution is needed to fix problems in the current charter, which was adopted in 1987. Critics say Moise's effort is just an attempt to consolidate power.

( CBS Miami ) — The RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head returns to its usual spot on the PGA Tour calendar this year. The 2020 tournament was pushed from April to June, thanks to the COVID pandemic that shut down golf and the rest of the sports world. It was the second tournament back after a three-month break. The 2021 RBC Heritage once again finds itself in the shadow of the Masters. The field, however, doesn’t appear to be suffering from following a major or not following a pandemic lag. Top-ranked Dustin Johnson, a native of South Carolina, leads a group that includes five of the world’s top-10 players and 10 of the world’s top-20. Defending champion Webb Simpson, who is ranked ninth, will look to rekindle some of the magic that led to his 22-under showing last year. All but one of the last decade’s champions also return.
