Patterson emphasizes getting through Iowa State game before bye week

first_imgFacebook Twitter Record-setting duo heads to Atlanta as national award finalists Linkedin Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award printThroughout the fall, TCU football head coach Gary Patterson has spoken about the stretch of four games – three of which are away – that ends this Saturday with Iowa State in Ames, Iowa.After winning by three and seven points at Texas Tech in Lubbock and Kansas State in Manhattan, Kansas, these close games are proving the challenge of playing on the road in the Big 12 Conference.“We can finally maybe catch our breath when we get done with the ballgame [against Iowa State], but we don’t think it will be probably any different than any of the other road games we’ve played up to this point,” Patterson said Tuesday.The wins in Lubbock and Manhattan mean nothing in Ames, Patterson said.“For right now, it’s just week seven,” he said. “It’s the Cyclones of Iowa State. You’ve got to watch fakes. You’ve got to prepare for everything in this ballgame. Everything goes. It’s going down.”The added factor of another night game poses a challenge for TCU. Patterson said there is more emotion at later games, making playing away that much more difficult.“I’d like to know the record of all the head coaches in the league at Manhattan, Kansas,” Patterson said. “I think there’s some that have only won a couple times.”Current Big 12 coaches, including Patterson, are a combined 8-10 with their current schools when playing in Manhattan.“It’s just a tough place to play,” Patterson said. “Ames is the same thing, and Lubbock, for us. TCU hadn’t won in how many years up there.”TCU hadn’t beaten Texas Tech in Lubbock since 1991. It had lost the last four games away at Texas Tech, in 1993, 1995, 2004 and 2013.The running headline of the season for TCU football has been the number of injuries on defense and the 14 true freshmen and 15 redshirt freshmen who have filled in the holes.Still, Patterson said he prefers the situation this year to two years ago, when the team had a dominant defense but lacked offensive power and leadership.“Every day is ‘50 First Dates,’” Patterson said, referencing the romantic comedy. “You’ve got to give our kids credit.”The coach said the defense must start faster. He said that if the team had played the entire game like it played the second half against Kansas State, it would have had a lot more success.Patterson noted that while the Wildcats beat TCU on special teams and on their own offense for the majority of the game, the Frogs’ ability to fight back gives players more confidence.“There’s a lot of compliments right now, but I don’t really have time for compliments,” he said.He did have one for two of his seniors, though.He said both Trevone Boykin and Josh Doctson should be considered for the most prestigious award in college football, the Heisman Trophy: “I’d have to say there’s not many people playing much better, if there is anybody.” Sarah Breuner + posts Facebook TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks George W.

At least nine journalists arrested in new round-up by security services

first_img Prisoner of Conscience Since 2001 – Why has Sweden not managed to bring Dawit Isaak home? November 22, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 At least nine journalists arrested in new round-up by security services January 13, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Eritrea The Eritrean authorities have arrested at least nine journalists in daily raids on the public media since 12 November. “On the basis of the information we recently obtained about the detention centre at Eiraeiro, we have every reason to fear for the physical safety and even for the lives of the journalists who have been detained,” Reporters Without Borders said. RSF_en Organisation Swedish prosecutors again refuse to investigate Dawit Isaak case Reporters Without Borders is appalled by a new round-up of journalists by the Eritrean government, in which at least nine state-owned media employees have been arrested since 12 November and are being held at undisclosed locations in conditions that are probably extremely harsh.“Terror reigns again among journalists in Eritrea,” the press freedom organisation said. “The government controls its people by means of lies, fear and violence, and does not tolerate anyone fleeing the country. We hope this wave of arrests will not be greeted with international indifference like the last time. The international community must intercede as a matter of urgency.”Reporters Without Borders added: “On the basis of the information we recently obtained about the detention centre at Eiraeiro, we have every reason to fear for the physical safety and even for the lives of the journalists who have been detained.”Reporters Without Borders has learned from sources in Asmara that members of the security forces have been going to the information ministry every day since 12 November and, without giving any explanation, have been questioning employees of the public media, which are housed at the information ministry.These are the public media journalists who have so far been arrested (the list is not exhaustive): Ahmed Baja of Eri-TV, Senait Tesfay of Eri-TV’s Tigrinya-language service, Paulos Kidane of Eri-TV’s Amharic-language service and Radio Dimtsi Hafash (Voice of the Broad Masses), Daniel Mussie of Radio Dimtsi Hafash’s Oromo-language service, Temesghen Abay of Radio Dimtsi Hafash’s Tigrinya-language service, Yemane Haile of the Eritrean News Agency (ENA), Fethia (surname unknown) of Eri-TV’s Arabic-language service, Simon (surname unknown) of Eri-TV and an unidentified journalist working for Eri-TV’s Arabic-language service.A local source said those arrested were taken to a detention centre called “Agip”. An Eritrean journalist living in exile told Reporters Without Borders this round-up was probably ordered with the aim of “terrorising those journalists who have not yet fled the country.”The source said: “the government is on a state of maximum alert following the recent defection of a number of veteran journalists holding key posts within the information ministry.” The detained journalists are accused of being the friends of, or being in contact with, the journalists who are now abroad, the source added. Reporters Without Borders is aware of at least six cases since the start of October of Eritrean journalists defecting after fleeing the country or requesting asylum abroad.The news of this round-up comes on the eve of the “Day of Support for Imprisoned Journalists,” which Reporters Without Borders has been organising on 23 November every year for the past 17 years. A total of 139 journalists are currently imprisoned worldwide. Eritrea, with at least 22 detained journalists, is Africa’s biggest prison for the press and the third biggest in the world, after China (with 32) and Cuba (with 23).

Traveling ionospheric disturbances in the Weddell Sea Anomaly associated with geomagnetic activity

first_imgWe present observations from the Falkland Islands Super Dual Auroral Radar Network radar of the propagation of HF radio waves via the Weddell Sea Ionospheric Anomaly (WSA), a region of enhanced austral summer nighttime ionospheric electron densities covering the southern Pacific and South Americas region. This anomaly is thought to be produced by uplift of the ionosphere by prevailing equatorward thermospheric winds. Of particular interest are perturbations of the WSA-supported propagation, which suggest that during periods of geomagnetic disturbance, the ionospheric layer can be lowered by several tens of kilometers and subsequently recover over a period of 1 to 2 h. Perturbations can appear singly or as a train of two to three events. We discuss possible causes of the perturbations and conclude that they are associated with equatorward propagating large-scale atmospheric waves produced by magnetospheric energy deposition in the auroral or subauroral ionosphere. Changes in high/middle latitude electrodynamics during geomagnetic storms may also account for the perturbations, but further modeling is required to fully understand their cause.last_img read more

Sunday Alcohol Sales Booming in the Hoosier State

first_imgSunday Alcohol Sales Booming in the Hoosier StateMARCH 24TH, 2019 AMANDA PORTER INDIANAIt’s been more than a year since Indiana ended the ban on Sunday alcohol sales, and by all accounts, it’s made a difference. FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed the historic bill ending the longstanding law outlawing the sale of alcohol on Sunday’s back in March of 2018. Sunday alcohol sales had been banned in the Hoosier state since Indiana joined the union in 1816. Local liquor store owners, including North Side Liquors manager Kelly Griffin, says that in its first year of Sunday sales, business has boomed.“Any business that we lose on the weekends like on short days we earn back on Sundays, so it’s a boost and helps us bring in new product as well,” says Griffin.Sunday sales remained in place even after prohibition ended in 1933. The powerful liquor lobby feared losing market share and to have to staff stores on Sunday, an extra day of the week. But, the impact of adding that additional day has mostly been met with positive reaction according to Griffin. She says that there are two time periods during the day that remain the busiest.“Twelve to two is the busiest time at first of the day, and right around I want to say four to six is the next like a speed bump, the highest point of the day, the second highest point.”Griffin says that overall, the changing of laws has been solid for business as a whole. Now one year into Indiana’s new law, many businesses are taking full advantage of the extra sales day. Some states, however still ban alcohol on Sundays.Comments0 commentslast_img read more

Who Are The Never Trumpers?

first_imgWho Are The Never Trumpers?Globalists and Soft Progressives AKA: the Republican EstablishmentBy Richard Moss MDOne could perhaps have excused them their earlier indiscretions of November 2016.  He was, after all, an unknown quantity, an outsider of questionable conservative pedigree.  Indeed, Donald Trump had been a fairly typical New York liberal Democrat for much of his life.  And he had led a less than stellar moral life.  And so the pile on at the time by National Review and others could perhaps have been forgiven, although not really when one considered the alternative.  As I had written at the time:“Do we not grow weary of the sanctimonious ones?  The Never Trumpers that endlessly hector and scold, and hold themselves up as paragons of moral virtue? They display their good taste by showing contempt for Trump and his supporters.  Some of them claim they will vote down-ballot, skipping the Presidential slot, or vote for Evan what’s his name (McMullin).  Some will write in a candidate or go Libertarian, neither of who will have any chance of winning.  Other pious Republicans will even cast their vote for Hillary. But how much more compelling is the argument today, three years later, in light of the horrendous behavior of the Left, their naked will-to-power and demonic “rule or ruin” ethos?  And what of Trump, his incredible and unexpected victory in 2016, and then his very favorable performance as President and conservative standard-bearer?  What accounts for the odd and self-immolating behavior of the Never Trump crowd, most if not all of them former card-carrying members of the right?  Never Trumpers go under many labels including Globalists, neo-Cons, “moderate” Republicans, RINOs, Democrat-lites, Davos types (the “Daveoisie”), the Open Borders Crowd, and the “GOP establishment.”  Some of its better-known members include William Kristol, Mona Charen, the Koch brothers, John Podhoretz, Jeff Flake, Steve Schmidt, the Bushes, Peggy Noonan, George Will, Bret Stephens, Jonah Goldberg, Mitt Romney, John Kasich, David Frum, Gabriel Schoenfeld, Rick Wilson, David French, Max Boot, and others.    Many Never Trumpers, furthermore, are of Jewish persuasion, as I am, and supporters of Israel, as I also am.  One would have thought that actions taken by the President, our modern-day Cyrus, and defender of the Jews, would have persuaded them.Perhaps, it is that many of them, along with liberal associates, are part of what Angelo Codevilla describes as the “ruling class.”  These are individuals in higher-level positions in government, academia, the media, think tanks, non-government organizations (NGOs), unions, non-profits, corporations, and the courts.  They compose an extra-constitutional elite system, operating outside of the usual democratic mechanisms, that, in effect, run the country. The ruling class believes themselves of superior cultural, moral, and intellectual temperament; they view with disdain the unwashed living in the vast swaths between the coasts over whom they feel entitled to rule. Although superficially embracing democracy, they prefer government by experts, or, as it may occur, judges, but reject the elected branches unless, of course, they deliver the proper outcome.  They are, in other words, “progressives.”Ruling class elites place great faith in the “New World Order,“ “globalism,” and “world government.”  International bodies such as the European Union, the United Nations, and NATO are highly favored and critical to their vision of the world.  They abhor primitive “tribal” notions of nationhood such as love of country, its culture and heritage, and national sovereignty.  Appalled by “Brexit” and efforts by Trump to “build a wall,” they embrace open immigration and amnesty while spurning borders.  Some advocate policies that can loosely be described as “invade the world, invite the world.”  They support “criminal justice reform,” single-payer healthcare, and the Paris Climate Accord and maintain that Europe is better than America.  Many are not particularly fond of religion or biblical values, in particular, Christianity.  They are socially “liberal” or “libertarian” even when fiscally conservative.  The Second Amendment repulses them. It is a single class that includes Democrats and Republicans but not exactly.  The Democrats are the ranking members and Republicans are subordinate. Democrats enjoy prestige and power; their media organs are dominant; they have cultural gravitas.  Republicans do not.  They seek acceptance and recognition but know that they serve at the pleasure of liberal superiors. Republican ruling class members seek to preserve their lucrative media presence, affirmative pats on the head from leftist betters, and, of course, dinner invitations from liberal friends.  They do this by promoting certain foundational policies beloved by the left (particularly on immigration).  In this particular era, however, they have found a far better meal ticket to ensure continued membership in this exclusive club: denouncing Trump and everything he stands for including those who voted for him.  Republican country clubbers recognize that Trump is, in effect, a giant middle finger from the “deplorable” to them and their liberal cocktail lounge comrades.  Indeed, it is the failure of Republicans to enact policies that they fundraise and campaign on every election cycle (defending our borders, ending Obamacare, law, and order) only to abandon them once ensconced in power that drove voters to the outsider, anti-establishment Trump in the first place.  It is from the ranks of the second tier of the “ruling class,” of the cowering, pseudo-right aristocracy, that many if not most Never Trumpers arise.       “The so-called conservative, Holier than thou Never Trump crowd cannot abide by supporting Trump, or even keep from insulting him and his many followers in the most vicious ways.  They must then recognize that they are complicit in a possible Hillary presidency that will bring the nation to its knees.  Although an imperfect candidate, Trump is the only one that can prevent a likely 16-year Obama-Clinton continuum that will alter the nation irreversibly.  The moral and principled choice is to stop Clinton by embracing Trump.  By failing to do so, Republican Never Trumpers betray the nation and the conservative cause they claim to be a part of, and place themselves alongside the vile Left who actively seek to destroy the country.” We have long been burdened by what Lenin described as “useful idiots,” referring to leftist intellectuals in the West sympathetic to Marxist Socialism despite the abysmal failures and atrocities.  Now we have our “useful idiots” on the pseudo-right in the form of the Never Trumpers.  These pearl-clutches and malcontents, closet socialists and soft-progressives, are every bit as despicable as the leftist followers they once decried.  They cover themselves in shame.FOOTNOTE: Dr. Richard Moss is a board-certified head and neck cancer surgeon and was a candidate for Congress in 2016 and 2018.  He has written A Surgeon’s Odyssey and Matilda’s Triumph available on  Find more of his essays at  Visit Richard Moss, M.D. on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
