Weekday football game to add to rush hour traffic

first_imgReddIt Linkedin Twitter Facebook Facebook printUniversity Drive will be busier than usual Thursday afternoon as game day traffic combines with the rush hour commute.TCU is scheduled to play West Virginia University at 6:30 Thursday evening, which is expected to bring the usual fans and tailgaters to Amon G. Carter Stadium.Officer Tamara Pena of the Fort Worth Police Department said there would be around 45,000 people around campus trying to get to the game. However she said there were no plans to treat this game different than any other.“We control traffic exactly like we do for all TCU home games,” Pena. “There are approx. 95 officers directly involved with traffic control all around the TCU property.”Nearby schools will also bring traffic, in addition to the normal university congestion from students and faculty at TCU.Laurie Sager, the secretary at Alice Carlson Applied Learning Center, said they will let out at their normal 3 p.m. dismissal time, but have sent a message home to parents asking them to pick up their students by 3:15.“We will have extra police to help direct traffic at dismissal,” Sager said. “We did ask for early dismissal from FWISD but they weren’t on board with that option.”Christine Cole, a secretary at Paschal High School located down Berry Street, said they will also dismiss at normal time, however they have made no changes to after school activities. She said the school will continue to sell parking spaces for the game as they do for any TCU home game based on how many spaces they have available.“Parking for the TCU game will start at 4 p.m. and the shuttles will start running at 4:15,” Cole said. “After school activities such as sports and extracurricular come first and TCU game day parking comes second.”Kathy Cavins-Tull, the vice chancellor for student affairs at TCU, sent an email to students earlier this week that said they need to move to clear the parking lots on the west side of campus Wednesday night for game day parking. Commuters will then have to park at Will Rodgers Coliseum and take a shuttle to campus.“This means that most of the [commuter] parking on the east side of campus will be occupied by student cars on Thursday morning.” Cavins-Tull wrote. “While we are working to provide enough bus support to make this as convenient as possible, we recommend that you add 30 minutes to your normal travel and parking time.” + posts Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature The 109https://www.tcu360.com/author/the-109/ The 109https://www.tcu360.com/author/the-109/ TCU athletes are “SPARK-ing” an interest in Fort Worth area students Twitter The 109https://www.tcu360.com/author/the-109/ The 109 ReddIt Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Fort Worth braces for more severe weather TCU athletes are “SPARK-ing” an interest in Fort Worth area students Stories from the polls: Election Day in The109!

Armed robber sentenced to eight years

first_imgWhatsApp Facebook NewsLocal NewsArmed robber sentenced to eight yearsBy admin – May 24, 2011 1350 Twitter Linkedin Emailcenter_img A COUNTY Tipperary man was sentenced to eight years in prison this week after Judge Carroll Moran described what was a “horrendous experience” for the Morrissey family in 2007 when 25-year-old Declan Whyte was one of five men that held them at gunpoint demanding money at their home. Declan Whyte with an address at Ballywire, Kilross, Co Tipperary, was one of five armed and masked men who broke into the home of local businessman Seamus Morrissey in Galbally, Co Limerick four years ago.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The gang, including Declan Whyte, held Seamus Morrissey and his wife, Siobhan, with their two young daughters at gunpoint in their house until Siobhan handed over €14,000 from the safe. Whyte, the only one of the five to appear before the courts, had pleaded not guilty at the trial despite admitting his involvement when questioned by gardai at the time of the incident.Prior to sentencing, Siobhan Morrissey described September 19, 2007, the day that was “the worst day of their lives” and something that would leave a mark on the rest of their lives. Judge Carroll Moran said this was an horrendous experience for the victims and in his view the appropriate sentence was 10 years.However, he discounted the last two years on the basis that Whyte was not the main leader of the gang and that he had been influenced by another person.An eight year sentence was imposed and Judge Carroll Moran granted leave to appeal.

The Reserve Bank of India may in its discretion, alter such period as it thinks fit. Ordered accordingly. The instant applications are disposed of accordingly,” a bench led by Chief Justice SA Bobde said in the order passed on July 10(released on Tuesday, July 14).The bench, also including Justices R. Subhash Reddy and AS Bopanna, accordingly disposed of the interlocutory application which sought a direction that the period of validity of cheques be increased, amid the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. The application was filed in the suo moto case taken by the SC to extend the period of limitation for filing of cases in Courts/Tribunals on account of national lockdown. All cheques are valid for a period of three months, from the date of issue. The court noted that this validity period is not been prescribed by any Statute but it is a period prescribed by the Reserve Bank of India under Section 35-A of the Banking Regulation Act,1949. It thus held that the RBI should be given the discretion to extend or to not extend the same since, the entire Banking System relies on the same. Last month, the Supreme Court had declined to entertain a PIL which sought a relief to exclude the time period of lockdown for calculating the limitation for presentation of cheques/demand drafts. “In our considered view, this is a policy decision to be taken by the Reserve Bank of India regarding which the court can not issue any direction. The writ petition filed under Article 32 of the Constitution of India is dismissed as not maintainable,” a bench comprising Justices R Banumathi, Indu Malhotra and Aniruddha Bose had said.The Delhi High Court has also sought the response of the RBI on the issue, after observing that expiry of cheque on account of the sealing of the branch of bank where it was deposited amid lockdown was ‘unfortunate’.

North Carolina woman forced to be sex slave, tortured in front of her children

first_imgvmargineanu/iStock(PINEVILLE, N.C.) — A North Carolina woman was held as a sex slave and repeatedly beaten and tortured in front of her two children.The woman — who remains unnamed — was allegedly held against her will at two separate hotels in Pineville, North Carolina where police say “she was forced into sexual acts with random men,” according to a statement from the Pineville Police Department. The suspects, Thomas Antoine Miller and Shakeeta Lasha Adams, then allegedly physically and mentally punished the woman if she did not meet certain financial quotas.“The punishments range from verbal abuse, to beatings with a belt, being held under water/ice bath in a bathtub while being strangled, and burned/branded with a hot wire coat hanger. This violence was done in front of her two children and they were beaten as well with a belt at times,” read the police statement.The Pineville Police opened up an “extensive criminal investigation” over a three-week period into human trafficking through interviews, undercover surveillance and search warrants at area hotels when the victim came forward during the investigation asking for help for her and her two children.Miller and Adams were arrested for their involvement in the case. Miller, 26, was charged with human trafficking of an adult victim, sexual servitude of an adult victim, assault by strangulation, assault on a child under 12, assault on a female and communicating threats, according to the Charlotte Observer. Adams, 25, was charged with simple assault and is free on bail pending trial.Police are still concerned that other victims of Miller and Adams could still be out there.“We want those victims to come forward to us. We also want them to know that there is help out there for them,” the police statement said.“Our victim in this case and her children had a long road of physical and mental recovery ahead of them. Our victim has been very brave in coming forward and we hope that if there are more victims out there, then they too will be inspired to come forward,” the statement continued.

Physiology, growth, and development of larval krill Euphausia superba in autumn and winter in the Lazarev Sea, Antarctica

first_imgThe physiological condition of larval Antarctic krill was investigated during austral autumn 2004 and winter 2006 in the Lazarev Sea. The condition of larvae was quantified in both seasons by determining their body length (BL), dry weight (DW), elemental and biochemical composition, stomach content analysis, and rates of metabolism and growth. Overall the larvae in autumn were in better condition under the ice than in open water, and for those under the ice, condition decreased from autumn to winter. Thus, growth rates of furcilia larvae in open water in autumn were similar to winter values under the ice (mean, 0.008 mm d(-1)), whereas autumn under-ice values were higher (0.015 mm d(-1)). Equivalent larval stages in winter had up to 30% shorter BL and 70% lower DW than in autumn. Mean respiration rates of winter larvae were 43% lower than of autumn larvae. However, their ammonium excretion rates doubled in winter from 0.03 to 0.06 mu g NH4 DW-1 h(-1), resulting in mean O:N ratios of 46 in autumn and 15 in winter. Thus, differing metabolic substrates were used between autumn and winter, which supports a degree of flexibility for overwintering of larval krill. The larvae were eating small copepods (Oithona spp.) and protozoans, as well as autotrophic food under the ice. The interplay between under-ice topography, apparent current speed under sea ice, and the swimming ability of larval krill is probably critical to whether larval krill can maintain position and exploit suitable feeding areas under the ice.last_img read more
