Fundraising page launched for Texas DPS trooper shot multiple times on Friday night

MEXIA, Texas (KXAN) — An online fundraiser has been launched to support Chad Walker, the Texas DPS trooper who was shot on Friday night, and his family.

Walker was shot multiple times after he stopped to help the driver of a disabled vehicle on FM 2838 outside Mexia, northeast of Waco, DPS said.

Walker was taken to a hospital in Waco where he is in a critical condition.

A GoFundMe page[1] created for Walker, a father-of-four, and his family raised more than $ 12,000 as of 3 p.m. on Sunday.

It was created by Kara Hardin, who wrote on the page that she had the family’s permission to collect donations, which she said will be used for medical and travel needs.

After the shooting, DPS launched a Blue Alert for the suspect, 36-year-old DeArthur Pinson, Jr.,

Blue Alerts are issued for people who are accused of killing or seriously injuring a law enforcement officer. The alert was canceled when Pinson was found dead on Saturday evening.

Andrea Bocelli son Matteo: Stunning first time he sang for special mentor 'He launched me'

To have David Foster’s seal of approval is priceless in the music industry.

He hasn’t just produced many of Andrea’s blockbusting albums and filmed concerts over the years. He has delivered major hits for stars like Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion and Whitney Houston.

It’s hard to stress his importance, as much for his producing skills as for his eye for talent. David spotted young Irish group The Corrs and produced their debut album, as well as star-making ones for Josh Groban and Michael Bublé.

He was involved in American Idol (eventually marrying contestant Katherine McPhee) and has won 16 Grammys.

Yet Matteo has known him since he was a child and regards him as “family.”

First super-fast 5G network launched in Russia

Russian telecom operator MTS has announced that some of its customers will be able to access the company’s first 5G network in more than a dozen areas around the Russian capital.

The ultra-fast network is set to cover such popular Moscow sites as Gorky Park, an area around Moscow State University (MSU), as well as the Moscow City International Business Center among others. 5G coverage includes a total of 14 zones, and is set to be further expanded in the near future, according to MTS. A similar network covering around 10 areas will be launched in St. Petersburg this summer.

“After multiple tests and trial versions in the 5G area, our company has launched the first mass-scale pilot fifth-generation network in Russia, which is available to thousands of our clients in real-life conditions,” MTS President Alexey Kornya said on Friday as cited by the media.

The new-generation network will enable users to download data with speeds up to 1.5 gigabits per second. It means that an average film (with a file size of around 10 gigabytes) can be downloaded in less than one minute. Apart from fast mobile internet, in the future 5G networks are meant to help to develop the transport system and improve security in the city, MTS said.

However, not all MTS customers can try the 5G network. The operator plans to send invitations to some of its clients when they are close to one of the 5G zones. 

Russia aims to become one of the leading 5G countries globally as it wants to roll out the super-fast network in at least ten big cities by 2024, business daily RBC earlier reported. According to the plan, five million people will be able to access the network by that time. In less than a decade, by 2030, more than a third of the Russian population is expected to switch to 5G, with the user base set to increase tenfold and reach 50 million people.
