Capital Gazette newspaper where 5 were killed gets outpouring of support

first_img(ANNAPOLIS, Md.) — Alex Wroblewski/Getty ImagesThe Capital Gazette newspaper, where a gunman killed five people, is receiving an outpouring of support from the journalism community and the public.Capital Gazette’s parent company has set up a fund to raise money for families of the victims in the mass shooting Thursday, according to the Baltimore Sun, the Gazette’s sister newspaper.The Capital Families Fund will be managed through the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County, and the Michael and Jacky Ferro Family Foundation will match up to $1 million of donations, the Sun reported Friday.Four journalists and a sales assistant at the newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland, were killed, and two others injured when alleged gunman, Jarrod Ramos, 38, opened fire Thursday. Ramos, who authorities say had targeted the paper, has been charged with five counts of first-degree murder and is being held without bond.Within hours of the shooting, a Bloomberg journalist, Madi Alexander, set up a GoFundMe account called “Help Capital Gazette Journalists.”“Please give what you can to help the Capital Gazette newsroom and their journalists,” Alexander wrote on the GoFundMe campaign page. “Our hearts break for our colleagues in Annapolis and we want to do whatever we possibly can to help them pay for medical bills, funeral costs, newsroom repairs, and any other unforeseen expenses that might arise as a result of this terrible shooting.”She also asks contributors to take a moment to read the obituaries of the Gazette staff members who were killed.“Remember their names and faces: Gerald Fischman, Rob Hiaasen, John McNamara, Rebecca Smith, Wendi Winters,” she wrote.The account had as of Friday afternoon raised more than $150,000.Other media organizations and public officials also expressed condolences and support.“We pledge our support in their recovery and support [the Capital Gazette staff] in the means it takes to mend the hurt and loss,” read a statement from Associated Press Media Editors. “We will support these journalists to enable them to keep covering their community and standing for the values we all treasure – freedom of the press, an obligation to the truth, being on the front line as a watchdog and a way for many to have a voice.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Bernardo Silva urges Pep to buy Portuguese

first_imgManchester City ‘I don’t even care if they’re good or not!’ – Bernardo Silva urges Guardiola to sign Portuguese support Chris Burton 01:39 6/17/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Bernardo Silva Manchester City 2017-18 Getty Images Manchester City Premier League Guardiola The Manchester City playmaker has jokingly suggested that the Premier League champions need to bring in some fellow countrymen this summer Bernardo Silva is hoping to see Manchester City offer him some Portuguese support this summer, with the Premier League title winner joking that he is not concerned about “whether they’re good or not”.A man currently away on World Cup duty with his country enjoyed a productive debut campaign at the Etihad Stadium, taking in 53 appearances after completing a €50 million switch from Monaco.The 23-year-old playmaker is enjoying his time in England, with City’s domestic dominance allowing them to work with a relaxed camp where dressing room banter flows as freely as the goals. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Out of his depth! Emery on borrowed time after another abysmal Arsenal display Diving, tactical fouls & the emerging war of words between Guardiola & Klopp Sorry, Cristiano! Pjanic is Juventus’ most important player right now Arsenal would be selling their soul with Mourinho move Silva is, however, looking for a fellow countryman to come and join him in the japes, with Pep Guardiola urged to raid the transfer market for a player with ties to the Euro 2016 champions.He told The Players’ Tribune: “The problem is that now I’m the only Portuguese guy on the team. I am surrounded by the Brazilians, the Spaniards, the English, and they think it’s funny to play pranks on me on Instagram. They’ve tied my boots to the ceiling. They’ve tossed me in the pool with all my clothes on.“Even though we were Premier League champions, going to training every day felt like it did when you were a kid, when you were just having fun. That’s pretty rare in football, I think.“The guys behind it are usually the Brazilian Crew: Fernandinho, Ederson, Danilo and Gabriel Jesus, and I’ve become really close friends with them. I swear, this summer, after the World Cup, I’m gonna convince Pep to buy some Portuguese players. I don’t even care whether they’re good or not. They just need to be very creative with pranks. That’s all I ask.”Silva made his move to City early in the summer of 2017, before the market exploded on the back of Neymar’s record-breaking switch to Paris Saint-Germain.He was always hopeful that a former team-mate or two would join him from Monaco, and he eventually got his wish.Benjamin Mendy has become the joker in chief at City, with the France international nudged towards a big-money move by a man he enjoyed Ligue 1 title success alongside in 2016-17.“For me, there is no better place to be than Man City,” said Silva.“A lot has been written about Pep, but I still don’t think people fully understand how much he is a master of details. Before games he often says that he is giving us the map, but that we have to solve the riddles out on the pitch. For anyone who is obsessed with football, he’s the perfect manager to learn from. I wake up every day so happy to be playing football here.“On the day that I signed with City, I sent the Monaco guys a message with a photo of me holding up my jersey, and I said, “It’s done, guys. When are you joining us?”“Mendy said, “Man! Now I’ve gotta come over too!”“Kylian [Mbappe] grew up a fan of PSG, so I think he was destined for Paris, but two months later, Mendy signed with City, too.”last_img read more
