WJLA-TV(ANNAPOLIS, Md.) — Five people are dead and several others are “gravely” injured from a shooting at the Capital Gazette, a daily local newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland, said the Anne Arundel County Government.One suspect was engaged by responding officers within about 1 minute and taken into custody, officials said.Gazette crime and courts reporter Phil Davis tweeted, “There is nothing more terrifying than hearing multiple people get shot while you’re under your desk and then hear the gunman reload.”“I’m a police reporter. I write about this stuff,” Davis told The Baltimore Sun, which owns the Gazette. “But as much as I’m going to try to articulate how traumatizing it is to be hiding under your desk, you don’t know until you’re there and you feel helpless.”Davis described the experience as “like a war zone.”The Gazette has tweeted a link to the Sun’s story on the shooting.People were seen streaming out of the office building with their hands up.The building was evacuated and appears to be secure, officials said.The U.S. Naval Academy tweeted, “The Capital Gazette is our local newspaper and is often the first to tell our story. We are grieving with their staff and loved ones after the tragic events that occurred today.” “Absolutely devastated to learn of this tragedy in Annapolis,” Gov. Larry Hogan wrote on Twitter. “Please, heed all warnings and stay away from the area. Praying for those at the scene and for our community.”President Trump has also been briefed on the shooting, tweeting, “My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. Thank you to all of the First Responders who are currently on the scene.”Out of an abundance of caution, the New York Police Department is moving personnel to headquarters of major media outlets in New York, including ABC News.This story is developing.

DefinitionVertebroplasty is often an outpatient procedure used to treat painful compression fractures in the spine. In a compression fracture, all or part of a spine bone collapses.DescriptionVertebroplasty is done in a hospital or outpatient clinic.You may have local anesthesia (awake and unable to feel pain). You will likely also receive medicine to help you relax and feel sleepy.You may receive general anesthesia. You will be asleep and unable to feel pain.You lie face down on a table. The health care provider cleans the area of your back and applies medicine to numb the area.The doctor places a needle through the skin and into the spine bone. Real-time x-ray images are used to guide the doctor to the correct area in your lower back.Cement is then injected into the broken spine bone to make sure it does not collapse again.This procedure is similar to kyphoplasty. However, kyphoplastyalso involves theuse a balloon that is inflated at the end of the needle to add space between the vertebrae.Why the Procedure Is PerformedA common cause of compression fractures of the spine is thinning of your bones, or osteoporosis. Your doctor may recommend this procedure if you have severe and disabling pain for 2 months or more that does not get better with bed rest, pain medicines, and physical therapy.Your doctor may also recommend this procedure if you have a painful compression fractures of the spine due toCancer, including multiple myelomaInjury that caused broken bones in the spineRisksadvertisementVertebroplasty is generally safe. Complications may include:BleedingInfectionAllergic reactions to medicinesBreathing or heart problems if you have general anesthesiaLeakage of the bone cement into surrounding area (this can cause pain if it affects the spine or nerves). This problem is more common with this procedure than kyphoplasty. You may need other types of surgery to correct leakage if it occurs.Before the ProcedureAlways tell your doctor or nurse:If you could be pregnantWhatdrugs you are taking, including those you bought without a prescriptionIf you have been drinking a lot of alcoholDuring the days before the surgery:You may be asked to stop taking aspirin, ibuprofen, coumadin (warfarin), and any other drugs that make it hard for your blood to clot several days before.Ask your doctor which drugs you should still take on the day of the surgery.If you smoke, try to stop.On the day of the surgery:You will usually be told not to drink or eat a anything for several hours before the test.Take your drugs your doctor told you to take with a small sip of water.Your doctor or nurse will tell you when to arrive.After the ProcedureYou will probably go home on the same day of surgery. You should not drive, unless your doctor says it is OK.After the procedure:You should be able to walk. However, its best to stay in bed for the first 24 hours, except to use the bathroom.After 24 hours, slowly return to your regular activities.Avoid heavy lifting and strenuous activities for at least 6 weeks.Apply ice to the wound area if you have pain where the needle was inserted.Outlook (Prognosis)Patients who have this procedure often have less pain and a better quality of life after the surgery.They usually need fewer pain medicines, and can move better than before.ReferencesEsses SI, McGuire R, Jenkins J, et al.

Image Courtesy: AIDA CruisesAIDAperla, the youngest member of AIDA Cruises’ fleet, arrived at the Port of Barcelona via the Western Mediterranean in the evening hours of June 7 as part of its ‘Welcome Cruises’.During AIDAperla’s maiden season, Barcelona is, alongside Palma de Mallorca, one of the start and end ports for the ship’s seven-day cruises in the Western Mediterranean.The Rostock cruise company’s twelfth ship, delivered to AIDA Cruises in April this year, will be christened on June 30, 2017, in Palma de Mallorca.As disclosed, five AIDA ships will be docking in Barcelona a total of 61 times in 2017. Apart from AIDAperla, which will dock 31 times, Barcelona is also a travel destination for guests aboard AIDAstella, AIDAblu, AIDAsol and AIDAaura.What is more, the company – working with the relevant authorities and other partners – intends to supply AIDAperla with low-emission liquefied natural gas (LNG) while it is docked at the port.As AIDAperla’s twin ship AIDAprima has already been provided with LNG in all five ports of its Northern Europe cruises since May 2016, the newbuilding will be the second cruise ship worldwide that, thanks to a dual fuel engine, will be able to produce onboard power from LNG while docked – accounting for some 40 percent of its operating time, according to AIDA Cruises.The company said it is also discussing this issue with other Mediterranean ports.Thanks to the completion of the Carnival Group’s new cruise terminal, for the first time six ships from the AIDA fleet will be stopping at Barcelona on their cruises through the Mediterranean.The cruise corporation is investing a total of around EUR 30 million (USD 33.6 million) in the facility which has an area of some 12,500 m². It is intended for the operation of the next generation of ships that are entirely powered by LNG. The first ship of this generation, AIDAnova, is expected to be commissioned in fall 2018.
The Oakland Raiders had the option of selecting highly touted wide receiver Calvin Johnson or quarterback JaMarcus Russell as their No. 1 pick in the 2007 NFL draft, and selected Russell, who ended up being categorized as a “bust.” But now Russell is attempting a comeback, according to Yahoo! Sports.Russell’s last snap came in 2009 with the Raiders, but he has been away from the NFL for the last two seasons. He received tryouts from the Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins in 2010, but now finds himself trying to resurrect what once was deemed as a promising career.“My first year out, I couldn’t watch football, but after a while, I couldn’t keep the TV off,” Russell said in an interview with Yahoo! Sports. “I got that itchy feeling but now I gotta watch it, gotta watch.”The 27-year-old Russell was heavily criticized throughout his collegiate and professional career for his weight. When he entered the league he was 6-foot-6 and 265 pounds. He has picked up even more weight since his absence. Now Russell has dropped from 320 to 308 pounds by focusing on his cardio conditioning in the last six weeks.“The last few years, the things going through my life, football is my job and it is how it feeds my family,” he said. “People would say (that) I didn’t love the game but that pisses me off. People don’t know the real you, but I want people to know the real me and see what I can do. People are always saying that I’m a bust. I want show them I’m not. I’m committed to this now.”The next couple of months will be one of Russell’s biggest tests of commitment to reclaiming his future in the league. He will work with a plethora of former NFL players and personnel to get into better physical shape and retool his memory. Jeff Garcia, Marshall Faulk and Olympian Ato Boldon are some of the people he will be working with.Russell will still need to prove that he has changed from the man who was arrested in July 2010 for possession of codeine syrup without a prescription.“I’m not looking for a pat on the shoulder from people who haven’t been there for me,” Russell said.One step that Russell has taken is speaking to youth groups about his arrest and poor decision making.But he is determined that the decision to make a comeback will be the right choice in the long run.“It’s going to feel good to go back out there again,” Russell said. “I will make this happen.”

New England actually allowed more than 400 yards of offense in each of the first six games but has done that just once in the past 12 games, including the playoffs, and has conceded more than 20 points just twice.The improvement in defensive coordinator Matt Patricia’s unit has been real, but the Patriots still rank only 22nd in weighted defensive DVOA because they continue to allow a lot of successful plays. The 2017 Patriots have one of the most statistically unique defenses that we have ever studied. They are 32nd in yards per drive allowed but still rank sixth in points per drive allowed. No other defense since the latest league expansion in 2002 has ranked in the top 10 in points per drive allowed while ranking 26th or lower in yards per drive allowed. The Patriots were able to accomplish this with an extreme bend-but-don’t-break style of play. While part of this reflects New England’s red-zone defense that ranks second in points allowed per red-zone appearance, it’s also a matter of real estate. The Patriots’ opponents have the worst starting field position in the league thanks to New England’s strong special teams and ball security on offense — so there are more yards for offenses to gain against this unit. Still, the defense has managed to keep scoring down and is even doing this with just one takeaway in the past six games.You also can say that the Patriots have had some good fortune on defense this year. Opposing kickers missed nine field goals against the Patriots for a success rate of 71.0 percent, the second lowest against any team in 2017. New England has also controversially benefited from a few touchdowns overturned by replay — against the Jets (Austin Seferian-Jenkins), Steelers (Jesse James) and Bills (Kelvin Benjamin).Lest we forget, the Eagles finished 2017 ranked fourth in offensive points per drive. Foles threw four touchdowns against the Giants and just shredded a superior Minnesota defense in the NFC Championship Game for 352 yards and three touchdowns. If head coach Doug Pederson can devise another good offensive game plan, the Eagles could be poised for another big night of scoring against a suspect defense.Stat No. 3: Under PressureThese were two of the best offenses at handling pass pressure all season long, though Wentz hid a lot of Philadelphia’s protection problems with his mobility. Foles is not nearly the same threat in that regard, and he’s also not playing as well as Brady has been under pressure, which we highlighted a few weeks back.Using a scatter plot from ESPN Stats & Info, we looked at how teams fared under pressure by comparing their Total Quarterback Rating (QBR) to their average air yards per pass attempt (how far the ball traveled relative to the line of scrimmage). Not only were the Patriots and Eagles among the top three offenses in QBR, but they were also among the five most vertical offenses when pressured, both averaging just shy of 10 air yards per attempt. SplitTeamQ1Q2Q3 Stat No. 2: Defensive DVOAFor the season, the Patriots rank 31st in defensive DVOA, and that could ultimately be their undoing this week. Our study of Super Bowl winners has shown that no team since at least 1986 has won a Super Bowl with a defense ranked lower than 25th in this metric. Atlanta came really close a year ago, but the 26th-ranked defense eventually wore down against the Patriots in the Falcons’ 28-3 collapse in Super Bowl LI. The 2011 Patriots also came close with the 30th-ranked defense, but Eli Manning led the Giants down the field for another game-winning drive in Super Bowl XLVI. Teams don’t require great balance to win a Super Bowl, but having the No. 1 offense and No. 31 defense like the 2017 Patriots makes them the most unbalanced Super Bowl team in more than 30 years. 2010GB25.14PIT38.42-13.3 1992DAL40.61BUF10.69+30.0 Game winning chance 2016NE33.01ATL19.94+13.1 Philadelphia68.470.873.1 Brady in particular has really taken to throwing deep with defenders bearing down on him. Since 2015, Brady leads all quarterbacks by averaging 10.28 air yards per pass attempt while pressured, according to ESPN Stats & Info. In 2017, Brady has clearly been leaning toward the left portion of the field on passes thrown more than 15 yards beyond the line of scrimmage. He has thrown for 723 yards on 52 deep passes outside the left numbers, as opposed to 407 yards on 25 deep passes outside the right numbers.New England wide receiver Brandin Cooks leads the NFL (including the playoffs) with 381 receiving yards on passes to the deep left this season. He could be in for a big night against a Philadelphia defense that fared better in DVOA on passes thrown to the deep right (-10.8 percent) than the deep left (6.5 percent).Stat No. 4: The Predictable Game Script?In their previous seven Super Bowls, the Patriots have never scored in the first quarter. Every game was decided by 1 to 6 points, and either Brady or Eli Manning led a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime. This season, the Patriots and Eagles led the league in net points per drive, with 1.04 and 0.79 points respectively, and both are accustomed to playing with the lead, though the Patriots needed late game-winning touchdowns to topple the Steelers (in Week 15) and Jaguars in crucial matchups.We turned to EdjFootball, part of the EdjSports analytics site, for its Game Winning Chance probability data to see which team had the higher average win probability through each of the first three quarters of their 2017 games. 1999STL28.21TEN19.45+8.8 The biggest mismatches heading into a Super BowlSuper Bowls with the biggest discrepancy in weighted DVOA since 1986 2007NYG2.617NE42.51-39.9 PostseasonNew England58.869.558.1 DVOADVOA 2001NE15.49STL21.94-6.5 2015DEN16.36CAR30.93-14.6 1994SF39.51SD7.78+31.8 TotalNew England70.177.276.5 Both teams are seldom in troubleThe average Game Winning Chance of each Super Bowl team at the end of the first through third quarters 1989SF42.91DEN18.84+24.1 YearWinnerWEIRankLoserWEIRankDIFF.

But that doesn’t mean every useful bit of information has been presented on the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles. We dug into the databases of ESPN’s Stats & Information Group and Football Outsiders to find a few obscure statistical areas to highlight that could help predict Sunday’s showdown.Stat No. 1: Weighted DVOAThe key efficiency metric used at Football Outsiders is Defense-adjusted Value Over Average, or DVOA for short (explained here). For the season, the Eagles ranked fifth in DVOA (23.5 percent) and actually edged out the sixth-ranked Patriots (22.6 percent). However, when looking at weighted DVOA, which places less importance on early-season games — the ones when the Patriots couldn’t get off the field and Carson Wentz was launching his breakout campaign — things become much different. The Patriots finished No. 1 in weighted DVOA (33.6 percent) and were 10 percentage points higher than the No. 7 Eagles (23.6 percent).It makes sense for the Patriots to rank No. 1 in weighted DVOA. Four of their five lowest games by DVOA came in the first five weeks of the season. Their only loss in their last 14 outings was the Week 14 game in Miami. It also makes sense that the Eagles held steady between the two stats: Philadelphia had five games with negative DVOA in 2017, and four of them were the last four games of the regular season.It has taken some time to adjust from Wentz to Nick Foles at quarterback, but Foles and the Eagles were stellar in the NFC Championship Game against Minnesota. That game is not reflected in the 23.6 percent weighted DVOA for the Eagles, but as Neil Paine recently wrote, a dominant performance in the conference title round has not been predictive of success in the Super Bowl.Since 1986 (as far back as the data currently goes), teams with at least a 5 percentage point edge in weighted DVOA are 15-8 in the Super Bowl. That sounds good for New England, but consider that the two biggest upsets by weighted DVOA were the Patriots’ losses to the Giants in Super Bowls XLII (the Pats had a 39.9-point advantage) and XLVI (a 19.3-point edge). 2011NYG6.014NE25.33-19.3 2004NE32.83PHI20.47+12.5 Regular seasonNew England71.5%78.2%78.8% Including the playoffs, the Patriots hold a slight edge over the Eagles in each quarter, boasting an average Game Winning Chance of 76.5 percent to start their fourth quarters compared with 73.1 percent for the Eagles. However, the Patriots have had a rougher go of things in the playoffs; they held just a 16.2 percent Game Winning Chance to start the fourth quarter against Jacksonville in the AFC Championship. Of course, it sure felt like the Patriots would come back from that deficit more than 16 times given 100 chances, but that’s just because we’ve seen this play out so often.No matter how well the Eagles start this game, we know the Patriots have the ability to come back. To make matters worse, Philadelphia’s worst defensive quarter this season was the fourth quarter, in which its DVOA fell to 14th after ranking in the top five in each of the first three quarters. While the Eagles have some experience at holding big leads, they weren’t doing so against an experienced New England team with Brady and Belichick. The Eagles have to be able to exploit the holes in New England’s defense to put a big number on the scoreboard and keep Brady off the field as much as possible.

Even though the elimination against Girona was painful for Atletico Madrid, striker Antoine Griezmann wanted to remind everyone they are still in La Liga.Despite last Wednesday’s Copa del Rey elimination for Atletico Madrid against Girona, this shocking setback doesn’t stir Antoine Griezmann from the main two objectives this season.The Colchoneros began the season with a clear goal, which is to fight for La Liga and most importantly, the Champions League.The continental tournament’s final will take place at the new Wanda Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid, a unique opportunity for all Atletico fans that the club doesn’t want to pass and they are still determined to get all the way to the last stages of the competition.But fortunately for them, the Colchoneros are also still in the fight to win La Liga this season and they are far from finished despite last Thursday’s heartbreak.Manager Diego Simeone did send a hopeful message after the match, one that struck a nerve amongst the players and possible will help them forget this sour moment sooner rather than later.Such a tight schedule of games don’t leave any time to delve into what happened, Atletico Madrid has a new commitment on Saturday when they visit Huesca for La Liga.🏆🏧 @AntoGriezmann, winner of @futbolmahou’s #Jugador5EstrellasATM Award for December, on the match against @SDHuesca: “We hope to get the three points.”#AúpaAtleti pic.twitter.com/YtkFM5zbyb— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) January 18, 2019The Colchoneros are currently second placed on the table with 38 units, they are only five points behind FC Barcelona who have 43.Diego Simeone’s players are currently not able to indulge themselves into slacking off, they have a very complicated visit on Saturday and they simply can’t drop off any more points if they want to still consider themselves title contenders.Despite the main objective being the Champions League this season, even the players are aware that fighting for La Liga is just as important.“We are okay, we are still fighting for the first position in La Liga but there are many matches still ahead and we have to see where we end up by the end of the season,” said Griezmann as quoted by Diario Sport.“We have to keep working hard, we have to win every single match we have left and we can’t leave any points behind.”“Each away match is always complicated because the rival tends to park the bus, plus we always have their supporters pushing their squad.”Zidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“We have to grow stronger and hopefully, we can get the three points at Huesca,” he added.El trofeo #Jugador5EstrellasATM de diciembre en el @Atleti ya ha sido entregado a @AntoGriezmann ¡Enhorabuena! ⚽️🏆 pic.twitter.com/bnPoe2OMS5— Fútbol Mahou (@futbolmahou) January 18, 2019Although the Colchoneros are not feeling quite happy for the elimination, even manager Diego Simeone wanted to let the players know that they all need to change the chip now and they can’t waste any more time.Atletico Madrid has a recent poor history with eliminations of this nature, they recently got eliminated in last season’s Champions League by modest Qarabag in the Round of 16 but they were able to recover by winning the Europa League.In past seasons, the two times European Cup finalist was already eliminated by Rubin Kazan in the UEFA Europa League and once again by Celta de Vigo in Copa del Rey.The latest from last Wednesday, just adds up to the dark history of Diego Simeone as the Atletico Madrid manager.The biggest hope is that this new setback doesn’t affect the other competitions, ‘Cholo’ is only hoping that he can have the patience this season for anything that comes his way.Because let us not fool ourselves, if Atletico Madrid doesn’t get to at least compete for the two competitions they have left with honor, there is a big chance that the club’s board of directors decide to sack Diego Simeone for next season.🎥 | #ATMFLASHSimeone, Koke and Correa spoke after the #AtletiGirona match.#AúpaAtleti pic.twitter.com/tCTe7UjJwh— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) January 16, 2019Which of the two remaining competitions can Atletico Madrid win by the end of the season?

Jose Mourinho has accepted a 12-month prison sentence for tax fraud but won’t serve any time. He will also pay a €2.2m to the Spanish state.Mourinho has been accused of failing to declare an image rights revenue and willingly evading to play tax expenses of nearly €3.3 million during his time as Real Madrid manager.He was in charge of Real in the period from 2010 to 2013 and committed the offenses between 2011 and 2012.His representatives, Gestifute Media back in 2016 have released a statement insisting he was “fully compliant with tax obligations”. They insisted that Jose Mourinho paid more than €26m in tax at an average rate of more than 41% while he lived in Spain between 2010 and 2013.A year and a half ago it was reported that Mourinho closed a deal with the Spanish prosecutors. Speaking to reporters outside the court in Pozuelo de Alarcon in November 2017, he said: “I did not answer, I did not argue. I paid and signed with the state that I am in compliance and the case is closed.”Jose Mourinho has accepted a one-year prison sentence for tax fraud, but will not serve jail time.More: https://t.co/pwhwY17jjq pic.twitter.com/P9SkKFxmCb— Sky Sports Premier League (@SkySportsPL) February 5, 2019The deal was ratified at court on Tuesday.
