TCU football looks for redemption in Arkansas

The Frogs get their chance to return the favor Saturday in Fayetteville.Despite the loss– which was a turning point in TCU’s worst season since 2013– senior wide receiver John Diarse said it doesn’t carry over.“It’s a different team on both sides, both here and there; new schemes, different strategies,” Diarse said. “It’s not really about last year, but what we can do to be better this year and how we can come back 1-0.”Since last season, Arkansas has promoted former Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads to defensive coordinator, and he has changed to a 3-4 defensive scheme.“They are running similar to what Iowa State has been doing, just because their coach is there now,” senior offensive guard Austin Schlottmann said. “I’ve been looking at some Iowa State film to try and see what they are doing.”Patterson said Arkansas’ personnel fits the new three lineman, four linebacker and four defensive-back scheme.“They have guys that can run around on defense,” he said. “They like [the 3-4] for the people they are going to play as far as passing groups. It keeps leverages, and you don’t have to take on as many double teams in the scheme. They have good players to go along with it.”Diarse said the new scheme does not alter the traditional expectations of a strong, fast and physical defense from front to back for the Razorbacks. He said the team will go, play their game and trust the coaches have put them in a situation to succeed.“It’s Arkansas, they play hard from the first whistle to the last whistle,” he said.  “We expect that going into that type of atmosphere. On film, their secondary is just as aggressive as their up front, and that’s what you expect out of their defense.”Diarse said an SEC atmosphere should not be a problem for a team that went 4-1 in away games last season. The Frogs are ready for it; they prepare for it every week.“Every Thursday, we go in the indoor, and we blare music so loud that you can’t hear,” Patterson said. “They have to communicate without talking, defense and offense. You have to be able to communicate without talking. It’s very important.”Patterson mentioned his defense has their work cut out for them, as Arkansas has a deep playbook that will challenge the Frogs in a variety of ways.“They are going to trick play, they are going to play action,” Patterson said. “They are going to run the ball at you and then try to throw the ball over your head. They do a great job with draws, and they do a great job with screens. You have to tackle well and play leverage.”The game is scheduled for Saturday at 2:30 p.m. in Fayetteville and will be aired on CBS.

Additionally, he has written B2B marketing copy for Dallas-based companies such as AT&T. An East Texas Native, he also works part-time as a photographer. With Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac on the path to being put back into private hands, The Wall Street Journal reports that funding from Wall Street investors will be necessary to lay down the groundwork.According to WSJ, executives at Bank of America Corp., Citigroup Inc., Goldman Sachs Group Inc., JPMorgan Chase JPM & Co. and Morgan Stanley have talked with the Treasury Department and Fannie and Freddie’s regulator about how a capital raise could work. However, the question of how much capital that needs to be raised is still a question. THe GSEs may need to raise billions of dollars from investors, and there are currently no indications the government has begun a formal process for hiring banks on a capital raise, though several banks, including Bank of America, Citigroup and Goldman, have begun preparing internally to win a role.According to Federal Housing Finance Director Mark Calabria at the the Eighth Annual AEI-CRN Housing Conference, regulators have “more than doubled” the GSE’s capital.“I can’t promise that we can keep that pace up, but we are headed in the right direction.”Speaking about conservatorship, Calbria stated that he “never thought [he] would see a conservatorship longer than six months.”“I have a responsibility to fix them and get them out,” he added.The GSE’s took an important step toward privatization when the U.S. Department of the Treasury  and the FHFA recently announced that they had agreed to modifications to the Preferred Stock Purchase Agreements (PSPAs), permitting Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to retain additional earnings in excess of the $3 billion capital reserves currently permitted by their PSPAs.These modifications are an important step toward implementing Treasury’s recommended reforms that will define a limited role for the Federal Government in the housing finance system and protect taxpayers against future bailouts,” said U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin.

Former Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh Moves Bombay High Court Against Preliminary Enquiry Against Him

first_imgNews UpdatesFormer Mumbai Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh Moves Bombay High Court Against Preliminary Enquiry Against Him Press Trust of India29 April 2021 5:13 AMShare This – xParam Bir Singh filed a petition in the Bombay High Court on Thursday, challenging two preliminary enquiries initiated against him by the Maharashtra government.In his petition, Singh claimed he was being targeted and harassed for highlighting the alleged “corrupt malpractices” of former state home minister and NCP leader Anil Deshmukh.Singh in his plea also claimed that during his meeting with state Director General of Police (DGP) Sanjay Pandey on April 19, the latter “advised him” to withdraw his letter against Deshmukh which he had sent to the state government.Singh, who was in March this year shifted from the post of Mumbai police commissioner to the Home Guards Department, had in a letter to the government alleged corruption and misuse of official position by Deshmukh.Last month, he also filed a public interest litigation in the HC, seeking a CBI inquiry against Deshmukh.On April 5, the HC directed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to carry out a preliminary enquiry into the allegations levelled by Singh against Deshmukh, following which the latter resigned as home minister.The CBI, after completing its enquiry, had registered an FIR against Deshmukh.Singh’s petition was mentioned before a division bench of Justices S S Shinde and Manish Pitale which directed the state government to respond to the allegations levelled by him in his plea, and posted the matter for further hearing on May 4.Singh’s counsel Mukul Rohatgi said the petition has challenged the two orders passed by the Maharashtra government on April 1 and April 20 directing DGP Sanjay Pandey to conduct preliminary enquiries against him.”The first order (April 1) was passed by the erstwhile home minister Anil Deshmukh for alleged violation of some All India Services (Conduct Rules) and the second-order of April 20 was passed by the present home minister (Dilip Walse Patil) over allegations of corruption levelled against Singh,” Rohatgi said.He said on April 19, Singh had a meeting with Pandey during which the DGP allegedly advised Singh to withdraw his letter sent to the Maharashtra government in March, in which he had levelled alleged corruption and misuse of official position by Deshmukh.”Pandey told Singh in the meeting that he cannot fight the system like this and that the government was now considering to initiate multiple criminal cases against him (Singh). Pandey advised Singh to withdraw the letter he sent to the government,” Rohatgi said.Pandey told Singh that if the letter is withdrawn, then the CBI’s case against Deshmukh would not stand, Rohatgi said, alleging that the state government was creating fictious complaints against Singh.He also said Singh had recorded his conversation with Pandey and has sent a copy of the same to the CBI.Rohatgi said the orders passed by the government initiating preliminary enquiry against Singh were “manifestly arbitrary, wholly illegal, null and void”. Public prosecutor Deepak Thakare sought time to respond to the allegations. Rohatgi then said time could be given to the government, but an interim protection should be given to Singh and the enquiries should be stayed until then.The court then asked if any show cause notice was issued to Singh with regard to any of the enquiry.Rohatgi replied in the negative.”If no show cause notice has been issued to Singh till date, then what is the urgency…what is the tearing need for us to pass any interim orders?” the court asked.”It is an enquiry for violation of some service rules.At the most, it is a service matter. Let the government respond to the allegations levelled in the petition,” the high court said.Singh in his petition said the orders passed by the state government initiating preliminary enquiry were aimed at thwarting the investigation of the CBI.”The impugned orders are aimed at silencing the petitioner (Singh) and to compel and pressurise him to withdraw his allegations against Deshmukh,” the petition said.Rohatgi pointed out to the court a case registered against Singh on Wednesday in Akola district and said he was challenging that also.The Akola police filed an FIR against Singh after a police inspector levelled corruption charges against him. The bench said Singh would have to challenge the Akola case before the HC’s Nagpur bench, as it has the jurisdiction to hear matters arising out of Akola district.Singh in his petition has sought a direction to the CBI to conduct an unbiased, uninfluenced, impartial and fair investigation against Deshmukh.He has also sought an order directing the Maharashtra government to ensure that transfer/posting of police officials are not done for any pecuniary benefits to any politician.It also sought a direction to the CBI or any other independent agency to forthwith take custody of the CCTV footage of Deshmukh’s residence to prevent its “destruction”.Tags#Param Bir Singh Bombay High Court Maharashtra government Anil Deshmukh Justice S S Shinde Justice Manish Pitale Next Storylast_img read more

first_imgAn Amber Alert has been issued for Dulce Maria Alavez, 5, in Bridgeton, N.J. – (Bridgeton Police Department)(BRIDGETON, N.J.) — A statewide Amber Alert has been issued in New Jersey for a missing 5-year-old girl who police say was lured away from a playground into a van.Dulce Maria Alavez was last seen Monday afternoon in the area of City Park in Bridgeton, N.J.Ducle’s mother reported to authorities that she saw her daughter playing on the swings with her 3-year-old brother, about 30 yards away, while she remained in her car with an 8-year-old relative. The mother said the toddler returned to her car without his sister and she was unable to find her, according to a press release from the Bridgetown Police Department.“She would never run off,” Dulce’s mother, Noema Alavez Perez, told Philadelphia ABC station WPVI. “She would never walk by herself or do something like that. This is the first time she did it.”Dozens of personnel from various law enforcement agencies within the county searched the area extensively Tuesday alongside K-9 units, but Ducle was nowhere to be found.The Amber Alert was issued after investigators interviewed people who were in the park at the time.Dulce may have been taken by a light-skinned, possibly Hispanic man with a thin build and no facial hair, around 5-foot 6- to 8-inches tall, and wearing a black shirt and red pants with orange sneakers, police said. Investigators believe the man led Dulce into a red van with tinted windows and a sliding door.The little girl is described as Hispanic, roughly 3 feet, 5 inches tall and has dark hair that was in a pony tail at the time. She was last seen wearing a yellow shirt, black-and-white checkered pants with a flower design and white sandals.Authorities have been conducting simultaneous investigations since Dulce was reported missing, with officers focused on locating the child and carrying out a criminal investigation into her disappearance, police said.Anyone with information on her whereabouts is urged to call the Bridgeton Police Department at 1-856-451-0033.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

The huge transport aircraft streamlined the process of relocating the three helicopters, 20 aircrew and 64 maintenance personnel required for the four week exercise. While it would take three days and up to twenty hours flying for a helicopter to get from Nowra to Perth, the C-17s will deliver the helicopters and crew in just over four hours.SEAHAWKS LOADED ONTO RAAF’S C-17 GLOBEMASTERTwo RAAF AP-3C Orions from 92 Wing, one United States Navy P-8A Poseidon and the three Navy Sikorsky S-70B-2 Seahawk helicopters will be participating in the exercise, in hot pursuit of a Collins Class submarine.816 Commanding Officer, Commander (CMDR) Marc Pavillard RAN said TAMEX provides valuable experience for 816 Squadron.“Over the four weeks, each of the Seahawks is expected to fly over 100 hours and conduct around 32 missions.”“Exercises like TAMEX allow us to develop, verify and refine our tactics, techniques and procedures for our primary role of anti-submarine warfare.”“It’s also an opportunity to work closely with the Air Force, both during the transit, with C-17 strategic lift support, and with our maritime counterparts operating the P3 Orion and P8 Poseidon. The exercise provides valuable training for our submarine force too.” said CMDR Pavillard.The Seahawk’s impressive navigation, communication and sensor suites make it a formidable helicopter in anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare.Seahawks’ recent achievements on deployment to the Middle East include playing a major role in drug interceptions off the coast of Africa and anti-piracy activities in the Arabian Sea.[mappress]Press Release, February 25, 2014, Image: Australian Navy View post tag: COLLINS View post tag: class View post tag: TAMEX View post tag: Seahawks View post tag: submarine View post tag: Defence Share this article View post tag: News by topic February 25, 2014 Australian Seahawks Depart for TAMEX RAAF C-17 GLOBEMASTERThe airfield at HMAS Albatross was abuzz with activity late last week when three Seahawk helicopters and 84 personnel from 816 Squadron left for Western Australia to participate in TAMEX, a joint maritime training exercise in anti-submarine warfare.

COA: Mom Owes No College Funds After Child’s Repudiation

first_imgDave Stafford for www.theindianalawyee.comA mother whose infidelity led to divorce and what a trial court called a “deep, seemingly bottomless rift between the children and Mother” owes a daughter no support with college expenses because the child repudiated their relationship.The Indiana Court of Appeals affirmed a ruling of the St. Joseph Superior Court that determined Dawn Marie Messner was not required to provide support for post-secondary educational expenses to her daughter, Riley, who she learned during mediation began attending Azusa Pacific University in California in fall 2017.Dawn’s then-husband Thomas Messner filed for divorce in September 2014, after the couple separated after Thomas was presented evidence of her infidelity, the record says. At some point that year, he and his children met with Dawn in a restaurant and gave her an ultimatum to end her relationship with her new partner or have no future relationship with her children.From that point forward, Dawn attempted to communicate with Riley through texts and through other children, and Dawn provided gifts for major holidays and Riley’s birthday. Riley almost never responded, the record says, and after Dawn was denied joint custody in 2016, father later moved for mother to contribute to Riley’s educational expenses.But at a hearing, Riley said she didn’t desire a relationship with her mother and she believed her mother wasn’t ready, calling her mom’s new relationship “disgusting.”Based on this evidence, the trial court held that Riley had repudiated her relationship with her mother and found Dawn therefore was relieved from contributing to Riley’s college expenses.The COA affirmed Friday in Thomas Virgil Messner v. Dawn Marie Messner, 18A-DR-1110.“Father argues … that the trial court ‘did not look to whether [Mother] bore some responsibility for the strained relationship between her and not only Riley, but also her other children,’” Judge Patricia Riley wrote for the panel. “… However, Father acknowledges that the trial court found that Mother had not been a model parent and that Riley’s repudiation may be entirely understandable. Father essentially argues that, where both parties share the blame for the deterioration of their relationship, a trial court should not excuse the repudiated parent from contribution towards college expenses.“On appeal, Father acknowledges that no existing Indiana precedent expressly supports his argument. We decline to accept Father’s proposed addition to the body of repudiation jurisprudence. Father’s argument might have some merit if there was a presumption of parental contribution towards a child’s college expenses; however, no such presumption exists.”The panel concluded that the trial court applied the correct legal standard in assessing the evidence, which supported its determination that Riley repudiated her relationship with her mother.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
