Facebook The Horned Frogs won in straight sets, 25-17,25-17,25-19, to improve to 2-0 on the season. They were led by first-year outside hitter Elan McCall and senior middle hitter Anna Walsh who combined for 30 kills.Both teams started off slow and the game was back and forth early. But as the first set progressed, TCU started to take control. After a timeout midway through the first set, the Horned Frogs went on a 10-5 run to win the set.“Offensively we started off really slow and hadn’t had a great connection,” Head Coach Jill Kramer said. “In the second match, there was lots more consistent tempo and location.”The second and third sets were similar to the first with TCU climbing back to take the lead midway through the set and holding on to win.The team finished with a .400 hitting percentage and totaled 52 kills and 49 assists with only 12 errors despite their slow start offensively.Defensively, the Horned Frogs limited Green Bay to only a .161 hitting percentage and had 6.5 total team blocks.“I think our team had a really good showing today. I think we bounced back from little things, little errors… and also came back with great plays,” Kramer said. “Offensively our numbers are good and I think we are happy with where we ended up today.”However good they may feel, the team knows that they are just scratching the surface of their potential. A potential that grows each time they take the court together.“The end goal is that we want to win the Big 12 and go far in the tournament but I think that every time we are on the court together we have that much better connection, that much better chemistry,” Walsh said.The Horned Frogs will play the SIUE Cougars tomorrow at 5:00 pm to wrap up the 2018 Cowtown Classic. + posts What we’re reading: Trump won’t participate in virtual debate, Hurricane Delta on path to hit U.S. Brian Contrerashttps://www.tcu360.com/author/brian-contreras/ ReddIt What we’re reading: COVID-19 vaccine testing paused, NFL announces social justice awareness program Brian Contrerashttps://www.tcu360.com/author/brian-contreras/ Linkedin Twitter CDC releases guidelines for a safe Halloween amid COVID-19 Facebook Brian Contreras YMCA to host virtual learning sites in Tarrant County Linkedin TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hellolast_img read more

Defence ministry brands media as “internal enemy” in war against Tamil Tigers

first_img News Receive email alerts Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Organisation News Help by sharing this information Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Sri Lanka: tamil reporter held on absurd terrorism charge June 7, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Defence ministry brands media as “internal enemy” in war against Tamil Tigers News July 15, 2020 Find out morecenter_img News Sri Lanka: Journalist manhandled by notorious police inspector currently on trial Follow the news on Sri Lanka Reporters Without Borders condemns a defence ministry campaign against independent news media, especially journalists who cover military affairs. The ministry’s website is carrying virulent attacks on journalists critical of the government, accusing them of being in cahoots with the “terrorist enemy,” the Tamil Tiger rebels.“While the civil war continues to claim innocent victims in both communities, defence secretary Gotabhaya Rajapaksa is lambasting journalists who do not toe the line of his propaganda,” the press freedom organisation said. “He is directly threatening the safety of journalists by accusing them of agreeing with the enemy. The government has turned Manicheism into a state doctrine in which those not with the army are deemed to be with the Tamil Tigers.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We call on President Mahinda Rajapaksa to restore trust and serenity to the government’s relations with the press.”Two long articles – headlined “Stop media treachery against armed forces members!” and “Deriding the war heroes for a living – the ugly face of defence analysts in Sri Lanka” – were recently posed on the ministry’s website, attacking news media that dare to contradict official press releases about the fighting in the north of the country.By blaming journalists for the military’s failure to “eradicate the LTTE terrorists,” the articles directly expose them to the possibility of reprisals. “Media freedom in this country has been encroached upon by few sociopaths that can be found in almost all anti-Sri Lankan outfits,” the website says.Many local news media, including Sirasa TV, the Daily Mirror and the Sunday Times, and the Free Media Movement (FMM), a local NGO that defends press freedom are explicitly accused of sowing discord within the armed forces in their articles and statements. “Whoever lures disgruntled members of the armed forces to act against the good order and the military discipline of the service is committing treachery against the nation,” the site says.The defence ministry also accuses the press of putting out false information although the army itself has often tried to minimise its losses, for example, after one of the most violent clashes in recent years in the Jaffna peninsula last April.Pressure on the independent media is mounting amid repeated incursions by the security forces into LTTE-controlled areas and deadly bombings in the Colombo region that are blamed on the Tamil Tigers.Keith Noyahr, assistant editor and defence correspondent of the English-language weekly The Nation, was kidnapped and beaten on 22 May in an attack apparently linked to his reporting on the government’s counter-insurgency campaign. TV reporter Paranirupasingam Devakumar and a friend were murdered six days later in an area of the Jaffna peninsula that is under military control. No suspect has been arrested.Iqbal Athas, a reporter who specialises in military affairs, stopped writing articles for the Sunday Times several weeks ago after being the target of a campaign of intimidation. According to the Free Media Movement, Sirimevan Kasthuriarachchi, a journalist who does defence reporting for the newspaper Divaina, was threatened with reprisals by thugs who forced their way into his home on 29 May. Frederica Jansz, the publisher of the monthly Montage and a contributor to The Nation, was followed by suspicious-looking vehicles in Colombo a week ago and the body of a bird was found outside her home in what might have been another threatening message.Press freedom activists have also been the target of intimidation. On 27 May, soldiers went to the Colombo headquarters of the Sri Lanka Press Institute, an organisation that is respected for its defence of media freedom, and asked for the names of its employees.The defence minister was added to the Reporters Without Borders list of “Predators of Press Freedom” on 3 May.

Editor gets two months in prison, amid no sign of progress in civil liberties three years after Mubarak’s reelection

first_img Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison staff Logo : © AFP RSF_en News News to go further Reporters Without Borders strongly condemns the two-month prison sentence which a Cairo appeals court passed on Ibrahim Issa, the editor of the opposition weekly Al-Dustour, on 28 September after upholding his conviction on a charge of publishing false information about President Hosni Mubarak. This is supposed to be Mubarak’s last term as president, but there has no let-up in the repressive policies he has been pursuing since he took over as president in 1981, the press freedom organisation said. Issa’s lawyer plans to appeal to the supreme court, but sentences are not usually suspended while appeals are heard, and Issa may have to start serving his sentence in the next few days.“A secondary school student’s brief arrest in June for criticising President Mubarak in an exam may be anecdotal, but Issa’s conviction highlights the oppressive reality of relations between the authorities and the independent press,” Reporters Without Borders said. “None of the electoral promises Mubarak made in September 2005 have been respected. The decriminalization of press offences is still a dream, and the state of emergency was recently extended pending the adoption of an anti-terrorism law, posing a potential danger for journalists.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Issa’s case also illustrates the judicial system’s subservience to the government. Other journalists reported the rumours about Mubarak’s presumably declining health, but he was the only one to be prosecuted. The trial was ridiculous, with the prosecutor even trying to get the central bank governor and the head of stock exchange regulatory authority to testify that Issa’s report was to blame for the fall in Egyptian stocks. Nothing was spared to guarantee his conviction.”The ruling by the appeal court in the Cairo district of Boulak Abou El-Ela upheld Issa’s conviction by a criminal court in March on a charge of disseminating false information liable to cause unrest and harm the country’s reputation under articles 171 and 188 of the criminal code. At the same time, the appeal court took four months off the original sentence of six months in prison. The prosecution was brought against Issa following a complaint by a member of the ruling National Democratic Party.Issa’s lawyer, Issam Abou Issa, told Reporters Without Borders he has filed an appeal before the supreme court on the grounds that there was no legal basis for the conviction. He said he had also filed for petition for a suspension of the appeal court’s decision.“This ruling opens the gates of hell to Egyptian journalism,” Issa told Agence France-Presse. It is not the first time he has been tried and convicted. A criminal court in the Cairo district of Al-Agouza sentenced him and three other newspaper editors to a year of forced labour on a similar charge in September 2007. They have so far avoided going to prison by paying a bond pending the outcome of their appeal.

Kentucky River littered with dead fish in wake of Jim Beam warehouse fire

first_imgKentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet (LOUISVILLE, Ky.) — The Kentucky River was littered with dead fish on Sunday in the wake of a massive fire at a bourbon warehouse.Officials with the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet shared images on its Facebook page to illustrate how the fire at the Jim Beam warehouse near Louisville had devastated wildlife.Nearly 45,000 barrels of alcohol were destroyed in the fire, which required firefighters from four neighboring counties to assist in putting it out. Firefighters held back from dousing the blaze with too much water — anticipating that bourbon-tainted runoff might contaminate nearby bodies of water.Even still, the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet said the fire left a 23-mile-long alcohol plume in the Kentucky River. Beam Suntory, Jim Beam’s parent company, said it sent environmental cleanup crews and consultants to the area after the blaze.The Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources said it was conducting wildlife assessments in an effort to determine a “fish kill count.” Officials warned residents to beware of “dead and dying fish.”“We continue to see dead and dying fish. People using the Kentucky River in the area of the plume will likely see and smell dead fish,” Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet said in a statement. “We expect the plume to dissipate quickly at it enters the much, much larger body of water but there could be some impact to aquatic life immediately where the two rivers meet.”The plume is expected to reach the Ohio River sometime very early Monday morning, according to the statement.Authorities aren’t sure of what may have caused the blaze, but a previously-released statement from Beam Suntory referenced early reports of a lightning strike.There were no injuries reported.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Ex-Freddie Mac CEO launching lending platform with Meridian, Barings

first_imgFormer Freddie Mac CEO David Brickman and Meridian Capital Group CEO Ralph Herzka (Freddie Mac; Herza by Studio Scrivo)Freddie Mac’s recently departed CEO is now heading up a new agency-lending platform backed by Meridian Capital Group and the investment firm Barings.David Brickman, who stepped down from the quasi-government agency this month, will take the lead at the yet-unnamed platform, Bloomberg News reported.“We have a significant opportunity to create one of the leading lenders in the multifamily commercial real estate space,” Brickman told the publication. “The combination of low interest rates and what is hopefully going to be a degree of recovery and stabilization in 2021 with the vaccine and additional stimulus should result in a strong year with more than $300 billion in total origination.”The new platform is expected to lean on Meridian’s vast reach with borrowers. The brokerage originated almost $40 billion in commercial real estate loans in 2020, more than $25 billion of which was multifamily debt.Meridian president Yoni Goodman said more than a third of that was done through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The new platform is acquiring the assets and liabilities of Barings Multifamily Capital LLC. The deal requires approval from federal government-sponsored entities, or GSEs.Multifamily loan purchases by Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae are capped at $70 billion this year.Brickman had been at Freddie Mac since 1999. He notified the board in November that he planned to leave. He will be an executive chairman at Meridian and a senior adviser at Stone Point Capital, which acquired a minority stake in Meridian.[Bloomberg] — Rich Bockmann Contact Rich Bockmann Full Name* Email Address* Tagsfannie maefreddie macmeridian capital group Message* Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlinklast_img read more
