Carter Stadium has room for about 4,000 students, or about half the undergraduate population, Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Christopher Del Conte said.But Del Conte said this season student attendance is averaging around 4,500-4,700, which leaves about 500-600 students without a seat.“You can see how they just cram themselves in there because you can see how bent my bleachers are,” Del Conte said. “They created an unbelievable home field advantage.”The standing room only zone behind the student section is meant to hold the overflow.“We’ve created a great standing room only environment,” Del Conte said. “If you’re not in the student section you can stand right here and go crazy as well because you’re standing anyways.”Still, Student Body President Maddie Reddick said some students are unhappy that the university isn’t opening more spaces for them. Reddick said she has received emails from students complaining about the size of the student section.Reddick and Chief of Staff Matt Miller have been meeting with officials in the athletics department about the student section. Miller said that there is no quick fix.“Overall athletics knows it’s an issue, but they also know there is really not a solution at this time because basically the entire stadium is sold out for the entire season,” Miller said. “The best solution, for now, is show up earlier.”Junior strategic communication major Danielle Deffebach said student seats should have been more of a priority before the stadium was sold out.“I don’t think it’s fair,” Deffebach said. “I get we have to make money at football games, that’s what football is for, but I think it would be better if they would open up the other sections.”Sophomore business major Lalita Sundarrajan said the student section should be larger.“For our student population, I feel like it’s a little bit small,” Sundarrajan said. “Our school is growing and there is more interest in football.”Sundarrajan said if ticket holders don’t show up those seats should be for students.“In that instance, there should be a caveat that students should be allowed to go fill up those empty seats because ultimately, we are students, we are paying to go here,” Sundarrajan said.Del Conte said there are no expansion plans.“I think I’ll address expansion when  we’ve got ourselves to the point where we are completely popping at the seams everywhere” Del Conte said. “I’d rather have it packed, loud, and energetic. Bigger is sometimes not always better.”The next chance to pack the student section is at 11 a.m. Saturday when the Horned Frogs take on the University of Texas Longhorns for homecoming.

TCU drops 5th straight after 71-54 loss to Texas

first_imgTwitter Texas center Prince Ibeh (44) drives to the basket over TCU defenders Devonta Abron (23) and Vladimir Brodziansky (10) during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game on Jan. 26 in Austin, Texas.

When he made two in a row midway through the second half, Ibeh got a raucous standing ovation from a home crowd that was ready to wince every time he stepped up to the shot.“I don’t know how to describe that,” Ibeh said. “I’ve been shooting free throws well in practice. Tonight after seeing one go in, I settled down.”Texas (13-7, 5-3 Big 12) also got a career-high 22 points from freshman guard Kerwin Roach, Jr.Roach, whose superb athletic ability has yet to translate into big minutes or consistent scoring in Big 12 play, was 6 of 9 shooting and also grabbed five rebounds for the Longhorns.Malique Trent and Chris Washburn scored nine points apiece, and Devonta Abron added seven points and eight rebounds for TCU (9-11, 1-7), which dropped its fifth straight game.For Texas, the win comes in a stretch where every victory builds confidence as first-year Texas coach Shaka Smart readies his team for the second-half of a rugged Big 12 schedule.Getting more games like this one from Ibeh could be critical. Texas has been in search of dependable inside scoring ever since center Cam Ridley was sidelined by surgery to repair a broken bone in his foot shortly after Christmas.“Sometimes an opportunity comes a guy’s way and they make the most of it. His confidence is growing,” Smart said.TCU beat the Longhorns in their first matchup in Fort Worth on Jan. 9 but the Horned Frogs were barely in this one as they struggled with Texas’ pressure defense, poor shooting and an inability to stop Texas from scoring almost at will near the basket. Texas opened up a 10-point lead by halftime.“They cause a lot of problems with their perimeter players both offensively and defensively. We knew they were going to bring pressure,” TCU coach Trent Johnson said.Texas guards Isaiah Taylor and Javan Felix, the catalysts for Texas’ biggest wins this season, took a back seat early in a ragged game that saw 27 turnovers in the first half. Texas shrugged off its own tough shooting night — 0-7 on 3-pointers in the first half — and outscored TCU 36-20 in the paint.Texas found its touch from long range just in time to snuff out TCU’s only real hope for a rally. The Horned Frogs opened the second half with a 3-pointer by Brandon Parish before Felix answered at the other end.A few minutes later, TCU had a chance to pull within three, but misfired on three straight possessions before Felix made another 3-pointer and Texas quickly pushed the lead back up to 48-36.TIP-INSTCU: After their first meeting, TCU’s scouting report likely noted contesting Texas on 3-pointers and keeping Taylor in check. Ibeh turned into an unexpected matchup problem. Ibeh had just six points and five rebounds against TCU when the Horned Frogs won.Texas: Texas got sloppier than usual but it didn’t end up costing the Longhorns very much. Their 15 turnovers snapped a five-game streak of having less than 10.“I kind of had a feeling that was coming,” Smart said.TURNING POINTTexas is 4-1 since losing to TCU in the third game of the Big 12 schedule. That run has included big wins over league title contenders Iowa State and West Virginia. The only loss was on the road at Kansas.Ibeh called losing to TCU three weeks ago a turning point for the Longhorns.“Everyone had to look in the mirror and realize we were digging ourselves in a hole,” Ibeh said.WHAT’S NEXTTCU hosts Tennessee on SaturdayTexas hosts Vanderbilt on Saturday + posts TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Facebook TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hellolast_img read more

Americans Migrated West and South in 2017

first_img January 2, 2018 1,976 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago About Author: David Wharton  Print This Post Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago States in the Mountain West, Pacific West, and the South saw strong inbound migration for 2017, according to United Van Lines’ 41st Annual National Movers Study. The Study tracks state-to-state migration patterns during a given year. For 2017, Vermont, Oregon, and Idaho topped the list of predominantly inbound states. Meanwhile, states in the Northeast and Midwest saw more people moving out than moving in during the year.Vermont was clearly doing something right in 2017, as 68 percent of the total moves in or out of the state for the year were inbound. That’s nearly the mirror opposite of Illinois’ numbers, which saw 63 percent of its 2017 moves being outbound.States in the Pacific and Mountain West saw quite a bit of inbound migration for the year, with Oregon (65 percent inbound), Idaho (63 percent inbound), Nevada (61 percent inbound), Washington (59 percent inbound), and Colorado (56 percent inbound) all proving strong performers in 2017. Overall, the Mountain West region saw 54 percent of its moves as inbound during the year. The Southern states were close behind with 52 percent of total moves being inbound.The Northeast trended the other direction for the year. Illinois’ 63 percent outbound total was followed by New Jersey (also 63 percent outbound), New York (61 percent outbound), and Connecticut (57 percent outbound).Michael Stoll, economist and professor in the Department of Public Policy at the University of California, Los Angeles, said, “This year’s data reflects longer-term trends of movement to the western and southern states, especially to those where housing costs are relatively lower, climates are more temperate, and job growth has been at or above the national average, among other factors. Stoll also highlighted continued migration to the Pacific Northwest and Mountain West “as young professionals and retirees leave California.”The top 10 inbound states for 2017, according to the National Movers Study, included:VermontOregonIdahoNevadaSouth DakotaWashingtonSouth CarolinaNorth CarolinaColoradoAlabamaOn the other end of the spectrum, the top 10 outbound states for 2017 were:IllinoisNew JerseyNew YorkConnecticutKansasMassachusettsOhioKentuckyUtahWisconsinThe study was based on “household moves handled by United within the 48 contiguous states and Washington, D.C.” A state is classified as “high inbound” if 55 percent or more of the moves are going into a state, and “high outbound” if the same percentage are moving out.

The Single Bench of Justice Sabyasachi Bhattacharyya further observed that the extension of powers of the CBI in respect of Railway areas falls outside the purview of the State’s authority to grant or withdraw consent.However, the Court added that the CBI’s authority to investigate beyond the ‘railway areas’ was subject to the specific consent by the State Govt. The matter before the Court The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) started investigation in an FIR, wherein the Petitioner was named as an accused. The FIR was registered in connection with suspected offences of criminal conspiracy, criminal breach of trust by public servants and criminal misconduct by public servants by dishonestly or fraudulently misappropriating the property entrusted to them or any property under their control as public servants or allowing other persons to do so. Importantly, the FIR specified the place of occurrence of the offence as leasehold area of ECL under Kunustoria, Kajora area, District West Burdwan, corresponding Railway Sidings and other places (in the State of West Bengal). [NOTE: It is important to note that Section 5 (1) of DSPEA states – The Central Government “may by order extend to any area (including Railway areas), in a State, not being a Union Territory the powers and jurisdiction of members of the Delhi Special Police Establishment for the investigation of any offences or classes of offences specified in a Notification under Section 3. Also, the extension of powers and jurisdiction of the CBI in a State, granted by the Central Government under Section 5 of DSPEA, is subject to consent of the concerned State Government under Section 6 of the 1946 Act.] Arguments put forth The Counsel for the Petitioner submitted that the consent given by the State of West Bengal under Section 6 of the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act, 1946 on August 2, 1989, was withdrawn vide a subsequent Notification dated November 16, 2018. Thus, it was contended that in view of the withdrawal of such consent by the State of West Bengal, the CBI had no authority to register FIR and conduct investigation pursuant to the same within the State of West Bengal. Question before the Court? The Court was concerned with the question as to whether the withdrawal of consent by the State of West Bengal denuded the CBI of any authority to conduct investigation within the territory of West Bengal, including Railway areas? Court’s observations At the outset, for the purpose of defining Railway area as contemplated in the 1946 Act (DSPEA), the Court borrowed the definition of “Railway” given in Section 2 (31) of The Railways Act, 1989 (as 1946 Act doesn’t define “Railway area”) and held, “All conceivable areas covered by the Railways, including rails, sidings, yards or branches used for the purposes of or in connection with Railway, fall within the periphery of Railway area.” Next, the Court held that the extension of powers and jurisdiction of members of the Delhi Special Police Establishment to a State would automatically include Railway areas falling therein, in the absence of any specific exclusion of such areas in the order conferring such powers. Further, the Court remarked, “Since, under Section 6, the consent of the State Government operates only in respect of a State and not Railway areas, which are specifically excluded in the section, the grant or withdrawal of consent by the State Government is irrelevant in respect of Railway areas.” With regard to Section 6 of the DSPEA, the Court said, “…For obvious reasons, Railway areas were excluded, since such areas spread over the whole of the country and are interconnected. Therefore, it would be absurd if each and every State asserts rights over the Railway areas to impose their own fiat regarding such areas, which would adversely affect the continuity of services and operation of the Railways.” Further, the Court observed that a composite reading of Sections 5 and 6 of the 1946 Act makes it evident that the grant or withdrawal of consent by the State Government, though valid for other territories in the State, does not have any repercussion on Railway areas. Importantly, the Court did note that it might lead to certain practical difficulties for CBI to investigate in the Railway areas falling within the State of West Bengal while not being able to conduct such investigation in the other areas of the State. However, the Court also clarified that the CBI shall have the authority to summon any witness or suspect for the purpose of interrogation, even if they reside outside the Railway areas in West Bengal, to the limited extent as such interrogation is necessary for investigation within the Railway areas. Accordingly, the Plea was disposed of in the following manner: The Central Bureau of Investigation is authorized to continue its investigations in respect of the said FIR in whatsoever manner within the “Railway areas” situated in West Bengal.Although the CBI is not authorized to conduct physical raids and/or active investigation into other areas of West Bengal than the Railway areas, it can summon and interrogate witnesses residing in West Bengal, even in places other than Railway areas, for the purpose of such investigation; In the event the CBI deems it necessary for the purpose of such investigation within the Railway areas in West Bengal and in other States, pertaining to the FIR impugned herein, the CBI will be at liberty to approach the State authorities of West Bengal for the purpose of the latter’s co-operation in the matter and necessary permission to hold joint raids and/or investigation. However, such action, in areas beyond the Railway areas, shall be conducted by the CBI only subject to specific consent being granted by appropriate authorities of the State of West Bengal.

Age distribution of breeding female Antarctic fur seals in relation to changes in population growth rate

first_imgThe age distribution of breeding female Antarctic fur seals at Bird Island, South Georgia, in 1988 was compared with the age distribution of a sample obtained in 1971–1973. The mean age in 1971–1973 was 7.41 (SE = 0.26) years and in 1988 it was 6.93 (SE = 0.20) years. After correction for age-dependent arrival time at the pupping beach in 1988, the mean age was 6.22 (SE = 0.14 years), which was significantly lower than in 1971–1973. Indicators of population size suggested that population growth at Bird Island had declined to below 3% annually by 1988 compared with rapid growth (17%) in 1958–1972. Exponential models fitted to the frequency distribution of age-classes greater than age 5 years and corrected for the rate of increase of the population gave adult survival rates of 0.66 (SE = 0.03) and 0.88 (SE = 0.02) for the 1988 and 1971–1973 samples, respectively. The reduced apparent adult survival rate in the 1988 sample was probably caused by emigration brought about by high densities of females on the pupping beaches. There are few signs from this analysis that the fur seal population at South Georgia is close to carrying capacitylast_img read more
