Gunmen dressed as mariachis kill 4 in Mexico tourist plaza

MEXICO CITY, Mexico -- Gunmen dressed as mariachi musicians opened fire in Mexico City's famed Plaza Garibaldi, killing four people and wounding nine others including a foreigner, police said on Saturday. The five assailants opened fire with rifles and handguns shortly before 10:00 pm Friday (0300 GMT Saturday) as the downtown plaza was filled with partiers enjoying the September 16 Independence Day weekend celebrations. Investigators later found 60 empty bullet casings on the ground. The shooters fled aboard three motorcycles, the Mexico City prosecutor's office said. The music and partying continued until after the city's chief of public security, Raymundo Collins, ...Keep on reading: Gunmen dressed as mariachis kill 4 in Mexico tourist plaza.....»»

Defending champion Capitals have almost no camp competition

By Stephen Whyno, Associated Press ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — While smiles are in high supply at training camp for the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals, open jobs are not. Returning 18 of 20 the players who dressed in their Cup-clinching victory, the Capitals have almost no competition for roster spots going into the regular season. Barring injuries, the front office and coaching staff could pencil in probably 95 percent of the opening night roster before anyone hits the ice. "Obviously, I know our roster pretty well," general manager Brian MacLellan said Friday. "It's still going to be competitive on the fourth line. We're going to try to find a fourth line that we'd like to add a little bit more skill, a little more speed, and what we can do on the penalty kill." Alex Ovechkin, Evgeny Kuznetsov, Braden Holtby and the rest of Washington's championship core remaining intact leaves the likes of Travis Boyd and newcomers Nic Dowd and Sergei Shumakov competing for fourth-line roles. MacLellan figures there will also be a competition between veteran Brooks Orpik and young defensemen Christian Djoos and Madison Bowey for playing time on the third pairing. That's a far cry from a year ago when the Capitals lost a handful of key contributors and were looking for someone — anyone — to step up and fill voids. Those voids don't exist this year given that only fourth-line center Jay Beagle and backup goaltender Philipp Grubauer aren't around. "You never know what's going to happen tomorrow because it's hockey stuff," Ovechkin said. "It's hard when your friends and when some of your teammates left, especially when you win the Cup, but there's a salary cap. ... It's hard to keep." It wasn't hard this time. The Capitals signed pending free agent defenseman John Carlson before he hit the market and re-signed playoff hero Devante Smith-Pelly and deadline pickup Michal Kempny. Their low turnover is similar to what the Pittsburgh Penguins had when they repeated as Cup champions. Todd Reirden replacing Barry Trotz as coach after four years as his top assistant is the biggest change. Reirden knows the roster as well as anyone and won't lie to players about opportunities, but he's trying to set them up to compete for spots that might come open because of injuries. "It's a different kind of competition," Reirden said. "You can't predict it, but all the players that are in camp, they know that there's competition. And whether that's competition for Day One of the season, Day 21 or 121 that there's a chance for them to be a part of a team that is the defending Stanley Cup champs." Dowd saw a chance to win a full-time job with the defending champions and jumped at the opportunity. The 28-year-old who has played for the Kings and Canucks wants to show he can bring everything Beagle did and provide some more offense. He's trying not to wonder every day in camp about where he stands in making the team. "I spent my first two to three years of pro hockey going into training camp trying to split the atom and trying to get in the minds of the coaches and, 'Why am I here, why I am there in the lineup, why am I this group, why am I in that group?'" Dowd said. "A lot of the time it makes no difference where you sit in practices and all that, and it just puts more stress on yourself in worrying about that." Most players at Capitals camp don't have much to worry about because they know where they'll be in October when the season starts. It's almost certain Pheonix Copley is Holtby's backup with prospect Ilya Samsonov in the American Hockey League with Hershey, and neither Bowey nor Djoos will be sent to the minors. Boyd, who played one playoff game during the Cup run, can't be sure and knows he's fighting for a job. "I didn't want to walk in here and think that I'm on the team," Boyd said. "I don't think I am. I definitely think that obviously there's some guys here that are good players too, trying to gain ahold of I guess the one or two spots that are open." NOTES: Carlson and center Lars Eller are nursing minor lower-body injuries that caused them to miss the first day of on-ice work. ... Reirden says the Capitals will take only a handful of veteran players to Boston for the preseason opener Sunday because the Bruins will have a big chunk of their team in China for exhibition games there......»»

Tourists at Spanish resort humiliated online as they take ‘walk of shame’

Foreign tourists are being filmed and humiliated online after doing the "walk of shame" in Magaluf, a popular European holiday resort town in the island of Majorca, Spain. Armed with filming devices and gadgets, men embarrass tourists who do the "walk of shame" by posting clips on a Facebook page called Maga Walk of Shame Official. "Walk of shame" in this context is defined as an instance when one walks back home, usually dressed in the clothes worn the night before, after a casual sexual encounter. Filming equipment in tow, men accost women and men alike, asking them with whom they had sex with: "Was s/he a worker or was s/he a tourist?"

Mexican soccer fans and pride marchers mingle in celebration

By Amy Guthrie, Associated Press MEXICO CITY (AP) — Soccer fans converged at Mexico's Angel of Independence monument to celebrate the national team's second win in the World Cup, mingling with an annual gay pride parade in a country that has been reprimanded for anti-gay slurs during soccer matches. Revelers cheered the Mexican team's second straight win after a 2-1 victory against South Korea while marveling at the harmony between the two celebrations. Some waved rainbow flags. Some waved Mexican flags. Some waved both. "We are very glad to see that these two groups can share the space," said Karla Vera, 27, who came to the pride march with her girlfriend in matching green soccer jerseys. "This is a very important day for Mexico." FIFA fined the Mexican Football Federation $10,000 for offensive fan behavior in Mexico's opening match against Germany. The Mexican team thanked its fans in a tweet Saturday for not shouting the slur during the South Korea match, saying that Mexico "won on and off the pitch." Fans deploy the slur, which literally translates as male prostitute, to distract players attempting goals. Defenders of the chant say the word is more akin to coward or wimp. Eduardo Reyes, 24, said he was initially afraid to attend Saturday's gay pride festivities knowing that soccer fans could flood the parade route. "Soccer is sometimes a little macho," he said, adding that he dies a little inside every time he hears the anti-gay slur during matches. "If you think about it, they're attacking their brothers." Reyes attended the march dressed as a Mexican cowboy, pairing a large embroidered sombrero and bolero jacket with tight underwear briefs. The historian beamed as soccer fans approached to snap pictures with him. Mexico has made great strides in gay rights. The Mexican Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage in 2010, five years before the U.S. But a 2016 study by the National Autonomous University of Mexico showed that Mexico ranked second after Brazil in Latin America for anti-LGBTQ crimes. And the country's National Human Rights Commission has labelled the culture as macho and patriarchal. Saturday's festivities painted a picture of a more tolerant and inclusive Mexico. Crowds of soccer fans jumped for joy next to men dressed as samba dancers and sweet-15 princesses. Drums beat. Spray foam spewed into the air. Signs saying "Stop Homophobia" glided past groups singing the Mexican folk song Cielito Lindo. "You can feel the harmony among everyone," said 18-year-old Renata Inurreta, who poured into the streets with her friends immediately after the match. "This is the essence of Mexico — that we love the party.".....»»
