Photo by Jack WallaceTCU Women’s Basketball defeated the Mississippi Valley State Devilettes Sunday in a game that was never in doubt, 96-47.TCU’s defense was able to consistently force turnovers, scoring 37 points off of 27 forced turnovers. The team never trailed and led by more than 10 points for the final three quarters.“Great opportunity for us to work on quite a few things but also to be able to get some of our depth some experience today,” head coach Raegan Pebley said. “Lots of freshman saw the floor for a lot of time.”First-year Yummy Morris played 17 minutes and finished with 10 points and six rebounds. Morris lost her mother earlier this week and the team wore patches commemorating her loss.“I just think it’s a testament to Yummy’s toughness to doing what she did today under the circumstances and she’s going to be a really, really special player,” said Pebley.Pebley said that the team coming together behind Morris during the last week is a testament to their strength and how much they want to play for each other. Four other Horned Frogs scored in double digits, including senior Jordan Moore.Jordan Moore became the 18th player in school history to score 1,000 points. Photo by Jack WallaceMoore finished with 18 points on 8-11 shooting in just 15 minutes. The 18th point was the 1,000th of her career, becoming the 18th player in school history to reach that mark.Moore’s success came as no surprise to Pebley.“I don’t sign somebody unless I think they’re going to be great,” she said of Moore. “It’s not like all the sudden Jordan became a great player. She’s just continued to build on it, build on it, build on it.” Moore’s 18 points led the team and highlighted the offense’s ability to be patient, wait for good shots and pass to the open player. Their 28 assists tied the fourth-highest mark in program history and were a big reason why they were able to put up 96 points. They also shot 57 percent from the field, a mark that will lead to success against almost any opponent.Juniors Jayde Woods and Kianna Ray and first-year Ryann Payne had five assists each. Defensively, the team employed a full-court press that suffocated the Devilette’s offense and led to turnovers and points for the Horned Frogs.The team’s aggressive defense forced 27 turnovers. Photo by Jack WallacePebley said they decided to employ the press because of the experience of their players and the zone defense run by Mississippi Valley State. “They learned how to be aggressive and assertive so that’s part of it,” she said. “We also just knew that [Mississippi Valley State] was gonna run a lot of zone and we needed our defense to be our best offense tonight.”The Horned Frogs will return to action at 2 p.m. next Sunday when they host the SMU Mustangs.  Linkedin Benton McDonald Benton McDonald Twitter Benton McDonald + posts TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Benton McDonald is a senior journalism and political science double major from Austin, Texas.

first_imgNews News Cameroonian journalist Paul Chouta sentenced and fined in defamation case May 19, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders urges Cameroon’s President Paul Biya to reject an anti-terrorism law with provisions that would have a disastrous impact on freedom of information if implemented in a heavy-handed manner.The Cameroonian authorities recently stepped up pressure on the media and the anti-terrorism law could make it even harder for journalists to operate. Its problems include an extremely vague definition of terrorism, disproportionate penalties and provision for only military courts to try terrorism cases.“We ask President Biya not to ratify this law, which is crudely formulated and applies disproportionate penalities that risk stifling freedom of the press,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Africa desk.The law seems to have been drafted ignoring the recommendations of many international conventions that make it possible to reconcile combatting terrorism with respect for freedoms. It expresses a series of intentions and means, without ever relating them to a clear definition of terrorism.Although the government claims to have been inspired by international texts advocating “respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms,” such as last September’s UN Security Council Resolution 2178, the law does not respect the proportionality of sanctions.This is the case with journalists, for whom “defending terrorism” in spoken or written word is punishable by 15 to 20 years in prison and/or a fine of 25 million to 50 million CFA francs (28,000 to 76,000 euros).Laws that punish defending or condoning terrorism have been adopted in other countries including France (LINK), as the Cameroonian government has pointed out, but they have much milder penalties and are much more even-handed.The decision to give military courts exclusive jurisdiction is also worrying because the use of military courts to try civilians should be the exception, not the rule. Furthermore, the defence minister has the power to appoint and assign military judges, which raises questions about their independence vis-à-vis the government.In an interview for Radio France Internationale on 12 December, communication minister Issa Tchiroma Bakary brushed aside civil society’s concerns about the law’s impact on the media and free speech, insisting that “there is no possibility of political demonstrations being confused with actions of a terrorist nature.”Crackdown already under wayThe authorities have not waited for the new law in order to take a tougher line with the media. Two newspaper journalists, Félix Cyriaque Ebole Bola of Mutations and Rodrigue Tongue of Le Messager, have been the subject of proceedings before a military court since 28 October.After contacting the police to check their sources for a story, they were accused of failing to report matters affecting state security to the authorities. They are no longer able to work as they have to present themselves to the police every week and are forbidden to talk to the national or international press.Two other journalists, Amungwa Tanyi Nicodemus and Zacharie Ndiomo, are currently detained in connection with their work. Nicodemus has been held for nearly nine months, Ndiomo for two months.Cameroon is ranked 131st out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Experienced Perth Basin oil producer Triangle Energy (Global) Limited (Triangle/ the Company) (ASX: TEG) is pleased to advise the return of the CH-13 well to production at the Cliff Head Oil Field.The CH-13 well was returned to production on the evening of 13 December 2019 following the installation of an electric submersible pump (ESP) replacement and has been tested over the weekend. The steady-state production rates for the field is currently 970bopd with the CH-13 well producing 150bopd.The ESP is currently being brought up to full speed over the next two weeks and the field total production optimised over the coming month. Total field production is expected to exceed 1000bopd.The Company has completed a program of works to review the methodology of ESP replacement. The successful resumption of production on the CH-13 well validates the Company’s decision to move to an alternative system for workover operations, ESP design and replacement.The Company believes, this change in methodology will deliver:• a safer and more reliable operation under a revised Safety Case;• an increase in the well uptime that arises from being positioned to maintain inventory and reduce turn around time post an ESP failure; and• a significant reduction in capital expenditure on future workovers of the Cliff Head wells.The Company has optimised performance from the other four producing wells at Cliff Head and has averaged 779 bopd over the period CH13 has been offline, which is indicative of the excellent facility uptime that continues.Further updates will be provided as the optimisation programme is completed.

first_imgNovelist Michael Collins, member of the Notre Dame class of 1987, read excerpts from his most recent novel, “The Death of All Things Seen,” on Wednesday in the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore.As an undergraduate, Collins was a varsity track athlete at Notre Dame on scholarship from Limerick, Ireland, majoring in English and business.“I came as an athlete and only survived two years at Notre Dame on scholarship, and I was allowed by the benevolence of [University President Emeritus] Fr. [Theodore] Hesburgh to stay without finishing my running career,” Collins said. “What he did say was, ‘If you’re going to stay on here, do something, don’t be a quitter. You’re not leaving the team because you’re a failure.’ And I said ‘No, I want to become educated. I want to do something else.’”That “something else” was first programming software — a skill he taught himself — at Microsoft under Bill Gates, and then later becoming a successful novelist whose works have been translated into 17 languages.William O’Rourke, professor emeritus and founder of the Notre Dame Creative Writing graduate program, said Collins was the reason he founded the program.“Michael was one of the most extraordinary students I’ve ever encountered, and it wasn’t just because he had over-the-horizon genius in writing,” O’Rourke said. “He has this ability of prose which very few people have, he’s a long distance runner world class and he also worked with Bill Gates at Microsoft.“He traverses three cultures.”One of Collins’ early novels, “The Keepers of Truth,” which is set in a town that closely resembles South Bend, was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and the IMPAC Award. The book led to both his recognition in the literary world and his firing from Microsoft, because they were unaware of his writing career, O’Rourke said.Since then, Collins has written 10 novels in total, all part of an American series that “lament the passing of American greatness,” Collins said.Collins read from his most recent novel, “The Death of All Things Seen”, which is the last in the series.“[The Death of All Things Seen is] a Chicago novel. It’s both sociological, realistic and philosophical — a genre that’s very popular these days,” O’Rourke said.Collins attributed his recent success to the current political climate surrounding the election of President Donald Trump.“When I started writing, it was to understand my own country, to process all that I had left behind in Ireland — again in 1983, Catholics versus Protestants and the whole in Ireland, you got to America and you never wanted to go home.” Collins said. “Writing is about psychotherapy for me. Perhaps it takes a point of dislocation to better receive the past or understand it. It would not be until I became an engineer for Microsoft in the mid ’90s that I would begin to reflect on our collective future.”“The Death of All Things Seen” begins in 2008 in the wake of the economic crisis and the election of then-President Barack Obama. The novel “moves around the central idea that there is no single narrative anymore — that each life simply occupies the same moment, that one’s perception and understanding of the world is never the same to any one person,” Collins said. “This is a world of fracture.”Collins, who is an ultra runner in addition to novelist and is captain of the Irish National 100k team, says that distance running and writing overlap in the areas of self-deprivation and discipline.“Every book takes about three months to write. You spend a lot of time preparing for a book and then you have to find a three-month space to do it. Writing a book is not difficult when you decide to do it,” Collins said. “I do 100-mile races, people think three months is long, but 100 miles is long too. If you prepare for it … you say on that particular day, ‘I’m going to do it,’ to the detriment of everything else in your life.”Collins then offered some advice to aspiring novelists.“Compress everything into a short period of time. If you give yourself too much time to do something, you give yourself an out.”Tags: creative writing, Ireland, Michael Collins, rev. theodore hesburgh, The Death of All Things Seen, Tracklast_img read more
