The win improves their record to 13-3 overall and 2-2 in the Big 12.Six of the eight Horned Frogs to see the floor Tuesday night scored in double figures with guard Desmond Bane leading all players with 26 points, a season-high, and guard Alex Robinson notching a double-double with 14 points and 10 assists.“You want to take care of the ball versus their over-plays and denials, and I thought we did a good job of that, we made our threes,” TCU head coach Jamie Dixon said. “I would’ve liked to have finished a little bit more at the rim, but obviously 12-of-28 from three and 20 assists to go with turnover numbers that you would like against this team.”TCU guard Desmond Bane lays-in two of his season-high 26 points against West Virginia.

Efficient three-point shooting factored into TCU’s success in the first half as they shot 56 percent, 5-of-9, from behind the arc. Noi, Miller, Robinson, Kendric Davis and Lat Mayen all connected from distance in the first 20 minutes.Mayen, a redshirt freshman from Australia, has dealt with multiple injuries during his time at TCU, including a torn meniscus in his right knee in December of 2017 and a bone bruise in his right leg that he suffered this summer. Against West Virginia, he totaled a career-high 12 points and six rebounds.“He was huge for us, and we knew he was always going to have an impact on the game, it was just a matter of getting him healthy,” Robinson said. “We got to experience it for a full year now.”TCU forward Lat Mayen hits one of his three made free throws against West Virginia on his way to a career-high 12 points and six rebounds. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.The second half picked up right where the first left off. The Horned Frogs went on an 18-8 run to begin the second half with 12 of those points coming from Noi and Bane.Another player who had a career-night to cap off a career week was sophomore guard Owen Aschieris.He was surprised by a campus police officer during a team film session that he would be put on scholarship for the spring semester Monday.“It’s really hard to describe because so much work went into this, and it’s been a crazy journey going from high school and not being recruited to the women’s’ scout team, and then walking on,” Aschieris said. “So many people behind me and to get this scholarship and talking [to the media] right now, I’m going to need a few days to let my mind chill.”His teammates were overjoyed to see his hard work rewarded.“He deserves it, over the summer, I thought I worked pretty hard,” Bane said. “The moment he got on the team, he was pushing me to get in the gym, trying to get up a 1,000 shots a day this summer, I thought that this dude is crazy. I was trying to shoot with him, but my shoulder was getting stiff and locking up on me.”Aschieris and the Horned Frogs will look for their first Big 12 road win this season at 3 p.m. on Saturday in Manhattan, Kan. against the Kansas State Wildcats.“It’s going to be tough at Kansas State, they have an extremely great student section there and atmosphere, and it’s an interesting set-up, all the fans come down,” Robinson said. “If we prepare the way we did today and hold them to under 40 percent shooting, we should be fine.”<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span> Boschini talks: construction, parking, tuition, enrollment, DEI, a student trustee Boschini: ‘None of the talk matters because Jamie Dixon is staying’ TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Twitter Twitter Garrett Podell Previous articleFootball add transfer quarterback to rosterNext articleTCU’s network leaves students, faculty with irregular wireless connection Garrett Podell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Garrett is a Journalism and Sports Broadcasting double major.

It is not the harshest penalty for “insult” under Article 228 of the criminal code but the severest sentence under Chapter 228 on insult and physical injury under the Emergency Act. Gopolan Nair faced one year in prison and a 5,000 dollars fine—————–Reporters Without Borders condemns the three-month prison sentence which a Singapore court imposed yesterday on blogger Gopalan Nair for insulting a high court judge in a blog entry. A Singaporean lawyer who became a US citizen in 2005, Nair plans to file an appeal on 20 September, the day he is due to begin serving his prison sentence.“This sentence is disproportionate,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Nair was given the severest sentence possible under the criminal code for insult. We urge the judicial authorities to be reasonable and to reverse this decision to send a blogger to prison.”Nair’s trial under article 228 of the criminal code began on 10 September. He defended himself.During the first hearing, Nair denied allegations that he had sent emails to Belinda Ang, the high court judge he was accused of insulting, and to another judge. “What I wrote on my blog is addressed to the whole world,” he said. He also accused the police of taking his notebook containing the password to his email account and blog.Nair, 58, was arrested in Singapore on 31 May under article 13 (d) of the Miscellaneous offences Act) and was charged four days later with “sedition” ( for criticising Ang and another judge, Lai Siew Chiu, for their handling of a defamation case that resulted in Chee Soon Juan, the head of the opposition Singapore Democratic Party, spending 12 days in prison (and his sister, Siok Chin, spending 10 days in prison).Nair was freed on bail on 5 June pending trial.

Aircraft Public Health Rules Incorporated In The SOP For Evacuation Purposes: Centre Tells SC

It has been drawn by Advocate Kuriakose Varghese and filed by KMNP Law AoR. It focuses on evacuation process in a phased and non-arbitrary manner by surfacing nuances of the existing domestic laws and policies and well as international frameworks.Accordingly, the plea averred that since the country is currently being administered under the Disaster Management Act, 2005, “a coordinated and prompt response and right approach at a unified and integrated level” is need of the hour.While emphasising that the present petition is different from various other evacuation petitions have been filed in the past, the petitioner contends that “the remit of this Petition is slightly different where the evacuation is only a part of the whole and – not the whole”Moroever, it was contended that as the most vulnerable groups of people such pregnant women, senior citizens, skilled and semi-skilled workers etc. have been bearing maximum brunt of the pandemic, a fine-tuned and nuances approach is required in terms of protocols adopted for evacuation.Apropos this, the petitioner highlighted that as “the lack of a legal framework and an identifiable institutional heirarchy” already burdens the institutional frameworks in motion due to “indetrminate rules”, the petitioner sought to highlight the “legal vacuum” in which the proposed evacuation which “as of now is understood” may operate.To effectuate this, a number of stakeholders including the National Executive Chairman (Union Home Secretary) as well as the Ministry of Civil Aviation have been impleaded in the petition.In light of the above, the petitioner proposes the following suggestions as “broadline points in law at a macro-level”:-1) Need for unified Indian Law and the WHO’s Health Regulations in order to provide the legal architecture where our laws intersect with international law – particularly international health laws2) Aircraft Rules and adoption of DRAFTs of 2015 & correction of an anomaly that exists in Sections 35 & 75 of the DMA 2005Petitioner avers that the the current Indian Aircraft (Public Health) Rules  of 1954 are not attuned woth the WHOs IHR 2005, even though new drafts were brought out in 2015 and 2017. They were however, not notified for “unknown reasons”, contends the plea. “This dichotomy ought to be immediately corrected to align our domestic Rules with international best health practices by recourse to inter alia Section 35 & 75 of the DMA, 2005″3) Need for inter-ministerial coordination in terms of tackling complicated tasks, host country regulations and cross-border tracel issues”Proven and capable officers in each of these Departments are required to evaluate the issues on priority basis for effective executive action. DMA 2005 definitely provides for the same and there is no lacuna whatsoever or any shades of grey, which normally acts as inhibitors”4) Urgent Constitition of a Sub-Committee vis-à-vis Section 9 of the DMA, 2005: “The Respondent No.1 is fully empowered to constitute the Sub-Committee including all the relevant Ministries mentioned including the MHA, MEA, MoCA, MoHFW and other relevant ministries/agencies/bodies and is in fact duty bound to do so”5) State Governments – consensual Decision Making within DMA – 2005: “Chief Secretaries of the top five States that have the highest emigration/returnees could be identified (as a reasonable classification) based on identifiable intelligible differentia or such other criteria as shall be fair, just and reasonable”6) Formulating clear protocol/guidelines for all furture evacuation contingencies.Next Storylast_img read more

Ten tax tips to avoid costly mistakes

first_imgHopefully, these ten tax tips will provide you with an accurate and cost efficient filing of your 2014 income tax Bonnie Lee, TaxpertiseWe’re rolling into the April 15 deadline very soon. Hopefully, these ten tax tips will provide you with an accurate and cost efficient filing of your 2014 income tax return. Keep in mind that mistakes made on a tax return can cause refund delays because it takes the IRS longer to process your tax return. Some mistakes may cause your tax return to be rejected during the electronic filing process. And many other errors can flag you for audit or cost you penalties.Here are ten tips to make this tax season less stressful:Make sure that all Social Security numbers for you, your spouse and your dependents have been entered accurately and as shown on the social security cards.If your dependent had income and filed a tax return but still qualified as your dependent, make sure he or she checked the applicable box(es) on line 5 of Form 1040-EZ to indicate that he/she is being taken as a dependent on another person’s tax return. Otherwise, your tax return will be rejected for e-filing. You may have to file an extension for your tax return then amend your dependent’s tax return, allowing eight weeks for processing before filing you tax return.Are you using the correct filing status? If you are single you may qualify as Head of Household. Then again you may not. Use the Interactive-Tax-Assistant on the IRS website to determine your correct filing status. It makes a difference in how much tax you will pay.Make sure the names on the tax return match exactly to the Social Security cards. Don’t use nicknames; use given names as shown on the Social Security card otherwise, you risk rejection of the electronic filed return thus delaying your refund.Check your math! Even if you are using tax software, math errors can occur. For example, you list your charitable contributions on Schedule A for a total of $2000. But when you run a tape off your cancelled checks, it adds up to $1,500. Find the discrepancy and correct it. continue reading » 15SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Hockey Canada decides to ban bodychecking in peewee division

first_imgHockey Night in Canada icon Don Cherry is not in favour of Hockey Canada’s recent decision to ban body checking at the peewee level.During his Coaches Corner segment Saturday, Cherry disagreed with Hockey Canada’s decision to ban bodychecking for peewee players saying young players will be ill-prepared and unsafe when physical contact is introduced at higher levels. “You [Hockey Canada] have good intentions, but hey listen, the road to hell is paved with good intentions,” he said on his Hockey Night in Canada segment. “You’re gonna be sorry. You watch and see, you will be sorry.”The decision came during Hockey Canada’s 94th Annual General Meeting in Charlottetown P.E.I.The meeting was attended by more than 250 delegates from across the country.The new body-checking rule change approved at 2013 Hockey Canada Annual General Meeting reads:• A modification to playing rule 6.2b was approved, removing body-checking from Peewee levels and below within leagues governed by Hockey Canada, starting in 2013-14. * In addition to this rule change, a work group has been directed to build a mandatory national checking and instructional resource program to support the progressive implementation of checking skills at the Novice to Peewee levels to better prepare players for body-checking at the Bantam and Midget level.last_img read more


first_imgSISE DREAMING OF DERBY FEVER WITH PROSPECT PARKCliff Sise Jr. couldn’t be blamed for being smitten with Derby Fever after Prospect Park aired to a 5 ¼-length victory in a one-mile overnight race at Santa Anita on Friday.It wasn’t just the margin of victory that impressed not only Sise, but hard-core race trackers. The 3-year-old son of Tapit owned and bred by Marty and Pam Wygod barely took a deep breath as Kent Desormeaux had the Kentucky-bred colt in hand the final sixteenth.It was the second straight win from five starts for Prospect Park, who does his training at San Luis Rey Downs where the 63-year-old Sise has some 30 horses in training, including some promising youngsters.“Marty always wanted me to break his babies,” Sise said. “Marty was nice enough last year to send all the 2-year-olds to me. I didn’t know if I was going to get them ready for other trainers, or what.“But he came out one day and we had a little celebration at the barn and told me he was going to let me run Prospect Park, so as of right now, everything’s good.“I loved the horse on Friday. He changed so much from the race before (a neck victory in a maiden allowance route at Santa Anita on Dec, 27). He ran good that day but he got sick two nights before with a little colic. We don’t know how much that took out of him.“He was OK the morning of the race so we ran him and he won. After that race he came back and trained like a different horse. He was stronger, and everything’s going good at the right time now.”Asked if he had a race in mind, Sise said, “Not really. I’ll leave that up to Marty Wygod. We’ll try to find the easiest spot for him.”Sise, who at 20 was the youngest to get a trainer’s license at that time when he started his career, has never run a horse in the Kentucky Derby, but that doesn’t stop him from dreaming.“I had a couple I hoped would run there,” he said, “but something always happened.”Sise recently returned to training a year after another endeavor.“I stopped as a trainer to run Rancho Paseana for Jenny Craig for two years,” Sise said. “That was enjoyable, but when San Luis Rey reopened, I came back to training in January of last year.” Martin Pedroza781013613%$378,950 Mark Casse3365418%$544,320 Kent Desormeaux791912924%$1,059,592 A.

Mark Glatt3557514%$276,392 BIGGER, BETTER VERSION OF CHROME IN 2015Take it from a man who’s been as close to the horse as anyone: CaliforniaChrome is bigger and better than last year.So says Victor Espinoza, who rode the California-bred son of Lucky Pulpit to victories in four Grade I races last year en route to Eclipse Awards as Horse of the Year and male 3-year-old of the year.“I think he’s stronger this year,” said Espinoza, who worked the immensely popular chestnut five furlongs Sunday morning at his Los Alamitos base in 1:03.60 in his final major breeze for Saturday’s $500,000 San Antonio Invitational at Santa Anita.With blinkers on and over a cleared race track, Chrome’s fractional times were 25 1/5 and 49 4/5, according to Los Alamitos head clocker Russ Hudak.“He went good; we’re happy with him,” said Alan Sherman, son of and assistant to his father, Art, who trains California Chrome. “He’ll ship to Santa Anita on Tuesday and gallop on the track Wednesday.”Added Espinoza: “The way he feels when I work him, he’s bigger and more mature. From last year to this is a big difference. He’s been working really strong. I believe he’ll run as good as a 4-year-old as he did at three.”Said Art Sherman: “I thought he was going to work him faster. Victor told me that he goes so easy he was afraid he would go too fast if he clucked to him. I was looking for a minute and change; that would have helped me a lot more going into this race.“I think it’s a good work but I would have liked a sharper workout for this race. He’s doing so good though, so . . . his gallop out was stronger than it has been. He galloped out (six furlongs) in 1:11.80. He was so strong pulling up. He’ll be fresh and ready, I can tell you that.”Chrome is expected to face once-beaten male 2-year-old champion of 2013 Shared Belief and eye-catching San Pasqual winner Hoppertunity, among others in the eagerly anticipated San Antonio Invitational, which will decided at a mile and an eighth for older horses.“He’s running,” Baffert said unequivocally after Hoppertunity worked six furlongs in company Sunday morning in 1:14.20 under Martin Garcia. Stablemate Doctor Dempsey was clocked in 1:14.60.“That’s good for him,” Baffert said of Hoppertunity’s time.Shared Belief is scheduled to have his final major breeze for the San Antonio at his Golden Gate Fields base on Tuesday, then ship to Santa Anita on Wednesday. “He’ll work a half-mile under Russell Baze,” Jerry Hollendorfer said by phone Sunday morning.Shared Belief, who could very well be unbeaten had his chances of winning the Breeders’ Cup Classic not been compromised by a rough start, will be seeking his ninth win from 10 career starts in the San Antonio.“He’s a very consistent horse,” Hollendorfer said.Probable for the San Antonio, which will be limited to 10 starters: Bronzo, Gary Stevens; California Chrome, Victor Espinoza; Clubhouse Ride, Aaron Gryder; Hoppertunity, Martin Garcia; Shared Belief, Mike Smith; Tonito M., Rafael Bejarano; Alfa Bird, Tyler Baze; and Imperative, Flavien Prat.            In other San Antonio news:            Trainer Bob Hess Jr. said Sunday morning he was “50-50” on running San Pasqual third-place finisher Blue Tone in the San Antonio or the Donn at Gulfstream the same day. “If he runs here,” Hess said, “Kent (Desormeaux) will ride him.”Blue Tone worked five furlongs Sunday morning in a bullet 59 flat, fastest of 59 drills at the distance, the average time of which 1:01.31.Trainer Mark Casse said he “wasn’t sure” on Dynamic Sky, who also is nominated to Saturday’s San Marcos Stakes at 1 1/8 miles on turf, where the son of Sky Mesa owned by John Oxley has run seven times in his 21-race career.“We’ve been preparing him like he’s going to run in the dirt race,” Casse said. “We’re definitely thinking about it and appreciate being invited. We’ll talk to Mr. Oxley and decide.”Trainer Sean McCarthy said Gold Cup at Santa Anita winner Majestic Harbor will go in the San Marcos, not the San Antonio. Majestic Harbor worked five furlongs on Santa Anita’s main track Sunday in 1:00.40.The race will be televised nationally on Fox Sports 1.
