West Virginia’s early 10-2 lead gave them enough momentum to cruise to a 25-18 victory.Outstanding defensive performances by middle blocker Sarah Swanson and outside hitter Audrey Nalls helped the Frogs get back into the contest, though. The duo recorded three blocks each, helping TCU tie the match score at one set apiece with a 25-18 win of their own. Similar defensive performances were also seen in the third set, which TCU claimed by the same score to take a match lead. “Our team battled back from a very slow start to the match,” head coach Jill Kramer said. “I saw a lot of good things from our squad tonight. We’ve made some big improvements on the blocking and defensive side of the ball.”The Frogs’ improvement was not enough, though, as they went on to drop the last two sets of the game. The fourth set was tight, with the score tied 17-17 nearing the end. Great individual performances were seen once again for TCU, with outside hitter Julia Adams recording five kills and defensive specialist Dani Dennison tallying nine digs. Nevertheless, a late 4-0 run by West Virginia gave the team the push they needed to win the set 25-22. The last set was intense as well. The Mountaineers held strong, though, using an early lead to stay ahead of the Frogs and win the set 15-11 to take Thursday’s game. Adams added five more kills in the final set to push her total to 21 on the night.Despite the loss, TCU set their season-highs in digs (71) and blocks (10) as a team. Defensive specialist Ashley Wehrstein also set a career-high with 12 digs, while middle blocker MyKayla Myers tallied a career-high six blocks. Middle blocker Afedo Manyang rises for a spike during the second game TCU’s series against West Virginia. (Photo courtesy of GoFrogs.com) Another strong showing fell short for TCU on Friday, with the Frogs falling 3-1 to West Virginia despite out-killing their opponent 65-47. Dennison tied her career-high with 28 digs, her career-high in a Big 12 match. Sophomore McKenzie Nichols provided 58 assists, and freshman Taylor Raiola recorded her first career double with 14 kills and 10 digs. The Frogs showed an explosive offense in a game that saw them score more than 20 points in all four sets. The first set depicted TCU’s will to try and come back from the previous loss the day before. A strong offensive performance from Adams, Swanson and Raiola saw the Frogs take a 17-11 lead. The Mountaineers offense then got going themselves, ripping off on a 9-3 run. TCU saw four set points but could not finish the job, as West Virginia grabbed the set 28-26.The Frogs responded with a monster second set to tie the match at 1-1. Led by Raiola’s five kills on 11 swings, the team hit 0.303 in the set. The defense was lockdown as well, holding the Mountaineers to a -.083 hitting clip.TCU won 25-11 to earn their largest set victory of the season. The third and fourth sets were close, but West Virginia had just enough in each to edge TCU. After the Mountaineers claimed the third set 26-24, the Frogs went all out to stay alive in the fourth. The set saw 10 ties and three lead changes before West Virginia was able to take it 25-20. “Our team battled today, but came up short,” Kramer said. “We are continuing to improve in many aspects of the game and are looking forward to getting back in the gym this week.”The Frogs will look to bounce back next week when they face the Kansas Jayhawks at home Thursday and Friday at 3:30 p.m. Both games will be streamed on Big 12 Now on ESPN+.  ReddIt Oscar Saraviahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/oscar-saravia/ + posts ReddItcenter_img Alcohol violations on opening game day remain low Twitter Bell reflects on his journey in soccer after championship season Previous articleEpisode 219 – CFB Week 7, NFL Week 6 PreviewNext articleEarly goals lead soccer to victory over Texas Tech Oscar Saravia RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Oscar Saraviahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/oscar-saravia/ Linkedin Oscar Saraviahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/oscar-saravia/ Volleyball swept twice by No. 2 Baylor in season openers Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hellolast_img read more

Fannie and Freddie to Retain “Limited Support”

0 Comments

first_img According to Bloomberg, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are expected to retain “limited and tailored government support” after they are freed from U.S. control, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a letter to lawmakers.“Treasury expects that it will be necessary to maintain limited and tailored government support” to provide confidence that the GSEs will meet their financial obligations, Mnuchin wrote. “Stability in the housing finance system is crucial, and there should be no disruption to the market as a result of Treasury’s recommended administrative reforms.”In 2019, the GSE’s took an important step toward privatization when the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Federal Housing Finance Agency (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.According to Mnuchin and Calabria Fannie and Freddie will “need to raise third-party capital.” As part of its process to take the GSEs out of conservatorship, the FHFA has selected Houlihan Lokey Capital, Inc., as its financial advisor to assist in the development of a plan to conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The FHFA’s report states Houlihan Lokey will consider business and capital structures, market impacts, timing, and available capital raising alternatives among other items. “Hiring a financial advisor is a significant milestone toward ending the conservatorships of the Enterprises,” said Calabria. “The next major milestone for FHFA is the re-proposal of the capital rule, which will happen in the near future.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Related Articles Sign up for DS News Daily Conservatorship Fannie Mae FHFA Freddie Mac 2020-02-21 Seth Welborn Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: Built-For-Rent Volumes Decline Next: Wells Fargo Reaches $3B Settlement with DOJ and SEC About Author: Seth Welborn Home / Daily Dose / Fannie and Freddie to Retain “Limited Support” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Savecenter_img Tagged with: Conservatorship Fannie Mae FHFA Freddie Mac Subscribe The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago February 21, 2020 1,087 Views The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

Police officer arrested in fatal shooting of unarmed man

0 Comments

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(KINGSLAND, Ga.) — A Georgia police officer was arrested and charged with voluntary manslaughter after he allegedly shot and killed an unarmed man who ran from him following a traffic stop, authorities said.Officer Zechariah Presley, 25, a member of the Kingsland Police Department, surrendered on Wednesday to the Camden County Sheriff’s Office after a warrant for his arrest was obtained by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.It is the second time this week that a white police officer in the United States has been arrested on criminal charges stemming from a shooting that left an unarmed African-American dead following a traffic stop.On Wednesday, East Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Police Officer Michael Rosfeld was arrested on criminal homicide charges stemming from the death of 17-year-old Antwon Rose, who was shot in the back as he ran from Rosfeld following a June 19 traffic stop. Rose’s shooting was caught on cell-phone video by a witness, prompting days of angry protests in the suburban Pittsburgh area.Presley was charged in the shooting death of Anthony Marcell Green, 33, in Kingsland, which is about 35 miles north of Jacksonville, Florida. Green was shot multiple times during a brief altercation that occurred after he was pulled over by Presley, authorities said.“This is a terrible tragedy and the family is seeking justice. Tony Green was gunned down in cold blood by Officer Presley,” Reginald Greene, an attorney for the man’s family, said in a statement. “We are encouraged by his swift arrest, but we intend to remain vigilant until he is brought to justice and the family is able to get answers as to why this happened in the first place. The senseless killings of black men by police must stop.”Presley, a member of the Kingsland Police Department for a little over a year, was booked in the Glen County, Georgia, Jail. In addition to voluntary manslaughter, he is charged with violation of oath of office, officials said.He is scheduled to appear for arraignment on Friday at the Kingsland Municipal Court. Green’s family is expected to hold a news conference at the courthouse at noon Friday, according to the family’s attorney.ABC News has reached out to Presley’s police union, the Georgia Police Benovelent Association, to find out who Presley’s attorney is, but has yet hear back.The Georgia Bureau of Investigation sought a warrant for Presley after reviewing video from Presley’s patrol car and his body camera, according to a statement from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. The video has not been made public, and investigators have not described what is on the footage.Kingsland Police Chief Daryl Griffis recommended on Wednesday that Presley be fired and Kingsland City Manager Lee Spell immediately accepted the recommendation, officials said.The incident occurred about 10:42 p.m. on June 21, when Presley stopped a car Green was driving.“The driver and passenger ran from the vehicle and the officer pursued the driver,” according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation report. “Upon making contact with Green, a brief altercation occurred. The officer fired multiple shots which resulted in the death of Green.”Torrence Jones, a friend of Green, told ABC affiliate WTLA-TV, that he had several run-ins with Presley and had filed a complaint about the officer with the police department and spoke to Chief Griffis about the officer.Jones claimed Presley had harassed him numerous times and after he complained, Presley parked in front of his house to menace him. WTLA-TV obtained the written complaint Jones made against Presley, in which he wrote, “I feel deeply that my life may be taken away.”“He’s gonna get exactly what he deserved,” Jones said of Presley. “And a manslaughter charge is way light. He should have gotten a first-degree murder charge.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

FDA authorizes 2nd COVID-19 vaccine, giving Moderna green light to ship doses to states

0 Comments

first_imgpinkomelet/iStockBy ANNE FLAHERTY, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has authorized use of a second COVID-19 vaccine for people age of 18 and over, a move that will trigger the shipment of millions more doses to hospitals and nursing homes next week.Like its competitor Pfizer, the Moderna vaccine was believed to be both safe and highly effective. After tracking some 30,000 volunteers, Moderna estimated it as 94% effective in preventing COVID-19 illness with few serious side effects.“With the availability of two vaccines now for the prevention of COVID-19, the FDA has taken another crucial step in the fight against this global pandemic that is causing vast numbers of hospitalizations and deaths in the United States each day,” said FDA Commissioner Dr. Stephen M. Hahn.The Moderna vaccine though does not require the same ultra-cold storage, making it more user-friendly, particularly in rural areas that might be less equipped.The authorization comes after federal advisers — an independent group of infectious disease experts, doctors and scientists — agreed overwhelmingly on Thursday that the benefits of the Moderna vaccine outweighed any potential risks based on trial data. The vote was 20-0 with one abstention.As with volunteers who took the Pfizer vaccine, fatigue, headaches and swelling at the injection site were noted.Unknown still is whether the vaccine stops transmission. The study only looked at whether people became serious ill.Also unclear is the potential for allergic reactions. A few incidents have been reported following shots of the Pfizer vaccine.At Thursday’s meeting on Moderna, Dr. Doran Fink, a senior vaccine official at the FDA, said researchers didn’t have all the information. But he noted that “these cases underscore the need to be vigilant during the early stage of the campaign” and communicate those findings to the public.Fink said the FDA was working with Pfizer to further revise fact sheets and warnings to health care providers to make clear that any facility administering it “should ensure that medical treatment for managing serious allergic reactions is immediately available.” He said the FDA plans to do the same for Moderna.“I have never been more hopeful that we will eventually turn the corner on this pandemic,” said Rich Besser, a former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and head of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.The 5.9 million doses shipped from Moderna would be in addition to the 6.4 million doses provided by Pfizer-BioNTech.Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, said Wednesday that people shouldn’t be concerned about having to choose between Moderna and Pfizer. An internal assessment by the FDA already found that the Moderna data showed the benefits likely outweigh the risks.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
