Photo by Jack Wallace.TCU soccer (6-3) experienced their first back-to-back non-conference loss run since 2017 after a 3-4 loss to the Arizona Wildcats (6-1).A goal by Grace Collins, her third of the year, brought the Frogs back after an early Wildcat goal. At halftime, the score remained 1-1, but a goal in the 61st minute plus a quick pair around the 78th gave Arizona a three-goal lead.Yazmeen Ryan’s first brace on the year was not enough to get the Horned Frogs ahead. Photo by Jack Wallace.Yazmeen Ryan’s two late goals for the Frogs, both inside the 80th minute, were not enough to prevent TCU’s third loss of the year. “Obviously we didn’t start the way we wanted to, giving up the early goal,” head coach Eric Bell said. “But we were able to get the goal back quickly on Grace’s shot. Then, I thought it was a relatively equal game. Sure they had 17 shots, but they were not super dangerous shots.”TCU was outshot by 11. In all three of their losses, TCU has been outshot on goal, while in only one of their six wins (SMU), did TCU get outshot.The four goals allowed by the TCU defense were the most since 2015 and makes this the highest combined scoring match of the season for the Frogs.This loss puts TCU at 0-2 all-time against Arizona, following their 2-1 loss in 2017, also on the road. The loss, combined with the Washington loss, is the first time since 2010 that TCU has lost to two Pac-12 teams in a season.Conference play begins for the Horned Frogs later this week. Only two Big 12 schools are ranked — No. 14 Kansas and No. 25 Oklahoma State. Both TCU (62) and Texas Tech (2) are receiving votes.Up next, TCU kicks off conference play with a showdown against Oklahoma at home this Thursday night at 7 p.m. TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Jack Wallacehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/jack-wallace/ Jack is a junior journalism major and studio art minor from Atlanta, Georgia.

‘He took my best friend away from me’: Slain student Mackenzie Lueck remembered at emotional vigil

first_imgiStock(SALT LAKE CITY) — Friends of slain University of Utah student Mackenzie Lueck came together in grief and resilience at a vigil on campus Monday night.Lueck’s friend and sorority sister, Kennedy Stoner, said she wanted to “voice how angry I am with the suspect and how he took my best friend away from me, her family, her sisters…”“It breaks my heart knowing she died alone in such a scary place,” Stoner said through tears.Lueck, a 23-year-old California native and lover of animals, had been missing in the Salt Lake City area for nearly two weeks before her suspected killer was arrested on Friday.Ayoola Ajayi, 31, was booked on charges of aggravated murder, aggravated kidnapping, obstruction of justice and desecration of a body, police said.Charred tissue was recovered with DNA consistent with samples found on Lueck’s belongings, police said.“Words cannot begin to describe the amount of sadness and pain we’re all feeling,” friend Ashley Fine said at the vigil. “Everyone that knew Mackenzie loved her and she is so greatly missed.”“While Mackenzie’s story is tragic, it is also a story of friendship and the strong bonds of women,” Fine said.Fine said she hopes to honor Lueck through acts of kindness. She said their friends also want to start a foundation in her name to help victims and their families.Fine vowed, “This person took away our friend, but he will not take away our strength. We will continue to advocate for victims of violence in our community and will continue to use Mackenzie’s voice for good.”Lueck, a kinesiology major who was planning to graduate next year, was last seen in the early hours of June 17.She landed at Salt Lake City International Airport around 2 a.m. and then took a Lyft from the airport to Hatch Park in north Salt Lake City, police said.The Lyft driver told police that Lueck met an individual in the park and did not appear to be in distress, police said. She was never seen again.Authorities later determined Lueck’s last communication was with Ajayi, said police. Phone records show that Lueck and Ajayi were both at Hatch Park within less than one minute of each other, according to authorities.During a search of Ajayi’s home, his neighbors told police they saw him using gasoline to burn something in his backyard on June 17 and 18, police said. “Several charred items consistent with personal items of Mackenzie Lueck” were found in his yard, according to police.Ajayi has not yet appeared in court.“She had a way of making you feel special,” Stoner said of Lueck at Monday’s vigil. “She loved helping people and always had a smile on her face.”“She always knew how to make you feel loved and she always knew the right words to say,” Stoner said.Overcome with emotion, Stoner paused.“She did not have a voice during her disappearance and time of death,” Stoner said through tears. “But I want to continue to be that voice.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Sally expected to become hurricane Monday night, Paulette slams Bermuda

first_imgABC NewsBy MAX GOLEMBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The Gulf Coast is on alert for Sally Monday morning.Sally is a tropical storm Monday morning with winds of 60 mph and is about 120 miles east-southeast of the mouth of the Mississippi River.Sally does not look very symmetrical at the moment with most of the heavy rain and wind on the right side of the storm.A Hurricane Warning has been issued from Morgan City, Louisiana to the Mississippi and Alabama border.The latest path takes Sally just near the Mouth of the Mississippi River sometime on Tuesday morning as a Category 1 hurricane but, at this time, it’s hard to say if it will make landfall there.The storm is expected to slow down and move toward the Mississippi coastline on Tuesday afternoon and then, possibly, make landfall. This could all change depending on how much it slows down and its turn to the north.Storm surge still remains a big threat even though it will be only a Category 1 storm as it makes landfall.Because of its slow motion, more water could pile up in the bays and inlets along the Gulf Coast so the storm could seem like it is more than a Category 1 because of that.Flooding from rainfall is another major threat with Sally because of its slow motion and some areas could see 15 to 20 inches of rain in the next several days with some areas seeing even more than 20 inches.Elsewhere, Hurricane Paulette is hitting Bermuda now and the island is small enough that it even fits inside Paulette’s eye.After Monday morning, Paulette will move quickly away from the island of Bermuda and not threaten any land.Elsewhere in the tropics, we have a new tropical storm and its name is Teddy.Teddy is forecast to become a major hurricane by this weekend as it moves in the general direction of Bermuda but it is too early to say if Bermuda will get hit again.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Oceanic environment of George VI Ice Shelf, Antarctic Peninsula

first_imgA collation of available data shows that sea-water with a temperature 3°C above the in-situ freezing point lies beneath George VI Ice Shelf in the Antarctic Peninsula, and is widespread on the Amundsen-Bellingshausen continental shelf. The presence of warm water is a factor in the recent and continuing disintegration of ice shelves in the region, yet the meteorology and oceanography of the sector are little known. We discuss a plausible link between the present climatic conditions, sea-water characteristics and the warm-water intrusion on to the continental shelf, thereby illustrating an indirect climatic influence on the mass balance of ice shelves.last_img

Olympian Ashley Wagner claims she was sexually assaulted by figure skater John Coughlin

first_img Beau Lund Written by August 1, 2019 /Sports News – National Olympian Ashley Wagner claims she was sexually assaulted by figure skater John Coughlincenter_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailDaniel Stark / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) — Olympian Ashley Wagner alleged she was sexually assaulted by late fellow figure skater John Coughlin when she was 17 and he was 22, claiming he went to her bed and groped her when she was asleep after a party with other athletes in Colorado.Wagner, now 28, came forward in a first-person essay and video piece for USA Today published Thursday, in which she said she “wrestled with using John’s name.”“But a name can shape so much of how my story is perceived,” Wagner wrote. “Without it, I know people will question my credibility.”Coughlin, a pairs champion and coach, killed himself in January, days after he was given an “interim suspension” by the U.S. Center for SafeSport, an organization that monitors athlete safety in an effort to prevent abuse.Wagner went on to say her story was “not about a name.”“This is about the environment that allowed for that act to happen. I want the issue to feel real to people, and for them to understand the dynamics of my sport, where uncomfortable power imbalances thrive to this day,” Wagner wrote.SafeSport ended its investigation into Coughlin after his death, but said in a March statement it found evidence that figure skating has a culture “that allowed grooming and abuse to go unchecked for too long” and it “cannot be allowed to continue,” per ESPN.Additionally, former figure skater Craig Maurizi testified in Congress in 2018 that the U.S. Figure Skating Association treated him “with the same disdain, disrespect and disbelief” seen by victims of former gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar when he alleged sexual abuse by a coach in 1999, saying figure skating had the same problems with handling these allegations as gymnastics.U.S. Figure Skating did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Wagner said she felt compelled to come forward after a 13-year-old won the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in late January, shortly after Coughlin’s death, leading Wagner to consider how many young girls and boys are in the sport and potentially vulnerable to abuse.“It was in that moment that I knew I had to come forward with my story. I want to make this sport safer for those kids,” Wagner wrote. “I went to U.S. Figure Skating and proposed changes to athlete education and wellness designed to keep these young skaters as safe as possible.”Wagner is not the first skater to publicly claim Coughlin assaulted her. In May, his former skating partner Bridget Namiotka, who is five years younger than Coughlin, claimed he sexually abused her for two years. Attorney John Manly, who represents multiple women who claim Coughlin abused them, confirmed to ESPN that he represents Namiotka.Wagner also posted about her story on Instagram on Thursday, writing, “I feel so strongly that people need to talk more about these experiences, that they need to have a bright light turned on the dark corners where they thrive. This happens all too often to both men and women, and we need to do better for our next generation.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Bayonne Briefs

first_imgFormer Bayonne accountant sentenced for accepting bribesA former senior accountant for the City of Bayonne, Anselmo “Rocky” Crisonino, 56, was sentenced on February 27 to 21 months in prison for accepting bribes in return for directing hundreds of thousands of dollars in grant money from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Developmentto a local contractor, according to a statement from U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman.Crisonino was the senior accountant for Bayonne Department of Community Development (CBDCD), a government agency that received funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under a federal program that provided grants of up to $20,000 to low-income families to rehabilitate their homes and to repair conditions affecting health and safety, accessibility, energy efficiency, or code compliance. The CBDCD also provided these HUD funds under the same federal program to nonprofit organizations.Crisonino was also sentenced to three years of supervised release and was ordered to pay $439,000 in restitution to the state.In February of 2014, he pled guilty to taking $65,000 in bribes from Joseph Arrigo, owner of Shadow Contracting, LLC, a general contracting firm based in Bayonne. In return for the bribes, Arrigo received assistance in securing $426,000 in U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) grants to Arrigo’s contracting firm, according to U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman. Crisonino was responsible for reviewing applications and awarding such funds to qualified applicants.In 2014, Crisonino also pled guilty to theft and conversion of federal funds, conducting an illegal gambling business and submitting a false tax return in 2011. Arrigo also admitted that he failed to report $151,993 in income on his tax returns the same year.In November of 2016, Joseph Arrigo, 47, of Bayonne, was sentenced to 15 months in prison after pleading guilty to paying $65,000 in bribes to Crisonimo. × New details on plane crashThe man piloting the single-engine plane that crashed on Avenue E Sunday, Dec. 19, remains hospitalized, but in stable condition, at Jersey City Medical Center, according to a hospital representative.George Pettway, 56, of Long Island was the lone passenger aboard a Piper PA-28 plane during a pleasure flight that started at the Republic Airport in East Farmingdale an hour before the crash. The plane experienced mechanical issues flying over the Statue of Liberty, eventually crashing into power lines on 41st Street and Avenue E, miraculously not killing anyone.Three cars were damaged in the crash, thousands of people in the area went without power as the lines went down, and the plane narrowly missed a gas station. Suffice to say, disaster was averted.The National Transportation Safety Board said in a statement that investigation into the cause of the plane crash is still in preliminary phases and will take investigators months to complete. Significant findings on the crash will be released over the following months. Christopher Munoz may run for State AssemblyRumors are swirling about a possible Assembly run for BOE Trustee Christopher Munoz, who was among the first elected trustees in Bayonne after 35 years of an appointed board ended with a referendum.After studying at NJCU, Munoz became a social studies teacher in Hoboken. Munoz is an outspoken proponent of increased teacher pay in Bayonne, a perpetually underfunded district, which is currently in a $2 million structural deficit.He is known to voice his opinions openly at meetings, when many others tend to simply vote yes or no.Many expected Munoz to run for City Council, so if he is throwing his hat in the ring, it may come as a surprise to some.Munoz’s running mate is rumored to be Kristen Zadroga Hart, a Jersey City teacher and former campaign manager and spokesperson for Board of Education candidates supported by the Jersey City Education Association, which has a great track record in winning elections. Commuter van crashes on NJ Turnpike, injuring nine, continues drivingA commuter van crashed into the rear of a Ford van in heavy traffic on the Turnpike at around 6 a.m. Monday, February 27, injuring the four people inside who were treated at Bayonne Medical Center for minor injuries, according to the Jersey City Police. The van, driven by a 46-year-old NYC resident, then continued driving to the Holland Tunnel. When police finally stopped the van at 7:30 a.m., five people aboard the van were taken to Jersey City Medical Center for minor injuries caused by the earlier crash, according to Port Authority Police. The NYC man was not issued a citation, and the incident remains under investigation.last_img read more
