This makes plain the importance of the global Anglican Communion to the archbishop of Canterbury, and the drive towards the deeper unity of all Christians.A prayer for the Most Rev. & Rt. Hon. Justin Welby as he is enthroned as the 105th archbishop of CanterburyLord Jesus Christ, Son of the living God,through whom all things live and move and have their being;pour out your Holy Spirit and the boundless gifts of graceupon your servant Justin,that being daily renewed,he may faithfully serve youin the ministries which you have entrusted to him;giving glory to you,who with the Father and the Spirit,are One God, now and for ever, to the ages of ages.

TCU’s record-setting offensive efficiency leads to 88-55 blowout of Stephen F. Austin

first_imgFacebook Linkedin Garrett is a Journalism and Sports Broadcasting double major. He is the Managing Editor for TCU360, and his passions are God, family, friends, sports, and great food. ReddIt Linkedin printThe TCU women’s basketball team extended its home winning streak to 12 games on Wednesday, as the Horned Frogs coasted to a 88-55 victory over Stephen F. Austin to improve their record to 7-2 on the season.The team has built an impressive home winning streak dating to last season. The streak is the third longest in program history.As a team, the Frogs set a school record for shooting percentage in a single game, as they shot 61.5 percent from the field. The Frogs made 32 of their 52 shots in the game, also shooting 9-of-18 from the three-point line.The Frogs’ stellar performance from the field led to five players scoring double digit points, including freshman center Jordan Moore (11 points), senior guard Zahna Medley (11 points), sophomore guard AJ Alix (13 points), sophomore guard Toree Thompson (14 points) and senior forward Caitlin Diaz (11 points, career high).TCU put the game away early in the first quarter by starting the game on 22-4 run, which included a 19-0 by the Horned Frogs, as SFA went 0-11 from the field over the seven and a half minutes when the run occurred.  A big reason for that dominant stretch was first-year center Jordan Moore, who scored eight of her eleven points in the game’s first two and a half minutes.“She [Moore] plays really really well and we always try and get her the ball, and today she was just making buckets,” senior forward Caitlin Diaz said. “When someone starts making buckets, we keep trying to get the ball to her.”Diaz and Moore and the rest of TCU’s frontcourt led the Horned Frogs to outscore the Lumberjacks 44-32 in the paint.Head coach Raegan Pebley attributes her team’s prolific shooting to valuing possessions.“We’re focused on working for a great shot, so that we score, not just so that we take shots,” Pebley said. “Our poise, our willingness to value possessions, and to recognize floor spacing was important against the defense they playing, which really allowed us to be efficient.”Pebley also said ball reversals and patience also factored in to TCU’s efficient scoring outburst against SFA.The Horned Frogs are 213-53 at home since the 1999-2000 season and 20-3 over the last two seasons.TCU’s next game is back at the TCU University Recreation Center Saturday at 11 a.m. against No. 3 Notre Dame. It’s also their last game at the University Recreation Center, as they’re set to move into the new Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena on Sunday Dec. 20 when the Horned Frogs face Southern Utah at 3:30 p.m. Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award + posts Facebook Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ TCU Basketball vs Prairie View A&M at the University Recreation Center on the TCU campus in Fort Worth, Texas on November 24, 2015.

(Courtesy of TCU police.)Update 10/04: Fort Worth police arrested two individuals who TCU police say confessed to the armed robbery near Fost Hall last month.According to a campus-wide email sent by TCU Assistant Police Chief Robert Rangel, police were responding to a vehicle robbery when they caught the suspects and were then recognized from the TCU bulltein.“The suspects are currently being held and are not expected to be released soon,” Rangel wrote. “TCU police are continuing the investigation to prepare for filing charges.”Rangel said that the capture happened as a result of a community effort.“It is important to note that it was a tip from a TCU student, who recognized the suspects from the crime bulletin, that led detectives to retrieving the images that eventually led to their identification by Fort Worth Police,” Rangel said. “This is a great example of how vigilance, and immediately reporting suspicious or relevant information to police, helps to keep our community safe.” Update 9/24: TCU Police emailed students, faculty and staff Saturday night with pictures of the suspects so that “community members can remain vigilant and call police if they observe the suspects,” according to the email.TCU police are working with Fort Worth police to identify and obtain arrest warrants on the suspects pictured, according to the email. Both police departments have been stepping up patrols in the TCU area.Assistant TCU Police Chief Robert Rangel sent the email with a reminder to call the TCU police department at 817-257-7777 if they have any information on the crime and for everyone to remain vigilant in the area.“Do not confront or take any action that would place you at risk,” Rangel wrote. “Do not allow anyone to access a residential hall or other building that you do not know personally.” Twitter Facebook Elizabeth Campbell is executive editor of TCU 360 and a senior journalism and political science double major.

He left behind a flip-flop style sandal at the scene. The other suspect was described as black, 20-25 years of age and wearing a white shirt and dark pants.One was carrying a “small caliber handgun” according to the email, and both fled the scene on foot.The student suffered some “abrasions” from the encounter but is now safe. TCU police are asking anyone with information to call the Crime Stoppers number at 817-469-8477.“We never would treat anyone disrespectfully or presume the worst if someone were to call about a suspicious person, but it gives us the opportunity to make at least a casual contact and confirm that the person in question is someone with a legitimate reason for being on campus, especially at night,” Rangel said. “We have a beautiful and open campus environment but that also brings some challenges with regards to safety and security.”Police are calling the incident an “aggravated robbery.” According to the TCU Police 2016 Annual Security Report, robbery is defined as, “the taking or attempting to take anything of value from the car, custody, or control of a person or persons by force or threat of force or violence and/or by putting the victim in fear” and an aggravated assault is defined as, “an unlawful attack by one person upon another person for the purpose of inflicting severe or aggravated bodily injury. This type of assault usually is accompanied by the use of a weapon or by means likely to produce death or great bodily harm.”There were two aggravated assaults on campus in 2015, five in 2014 and four in 2013, according to the TCU Police 2016 Annual Security Report.The email also included a reminder to call TCU police at 817-257-7777 to “immediately” report any suspicious activity and a list of safety tips for students to follow.Saftey TipsBe aware of your surroundings and call police if you observe anything suspicious.Always travel in pairs with trusted companions, especially at night or in remote areas.At night, walk in well-lighted pedestrian routes.On campus, use shuttle service, Froggy 5-0 and other escort services when available.When reporting suspicious activity, be a good witness. Describe exactly what you observe with as many details as possible. Give complete descriptions such as sex, race, height, weight, hair color, clothing, etc.  If a vehicle is involved, note the color, make, model and, if possible the license plate. This is a developing story and will be updated with any new information.  Linkedin Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 1 day ago Tiny houses are not new, but COVID-19 and resultant lifestyle changes are making the movement more popular, according to IPX1031, a Fidelity National Financial Company blog, which conducted a survey of 2,000 Americans to understand how likely they would be to live in a tiny home. The researchers also looked into regions of the country with optimal tiny-home markets for both homebuyers and investors.”Even though the micro home movement isn’t necessarily new, many have put tiny homes on their radar since COVID-19,” note those who conducted the study.Affordability was the top reason for survey respondents who answered that, yes, they would consider purchasing a tiny house (more than half).65% cited affordability; 57% said “efficiency” would be a motivating factor; 48% said “eco-friendliness” would be a factor; and “living a minimalist lifestyle” rounded out the list of top tiny-house selling points. Also listed: Downsizing (36%), mobility (35%), and privacy (29%)Among the respondents who have never owned a home, 86% said a tiny home could be a contender for their first home purchase.What constitutes a tiny house? They can be on wheels or stationary (abut 54% of respondents said they would prefer the more-mobile option). They generally are less than 400 square feet and range in price from $30,000-$60,000 (whereas the average median price for a typical starter home is $233,400, according to the National Association of Realtors.Half of those surveyed say they would spend less than $40,000 on a tiny home and 79% say they would be able to buy or finance a tiny home rather than a traditional starter home.The low cost and maintenance mean tiny houses present an attractive opportunity to investors, according to the survey. Of the study participants, 72% said they would consider buying a tiny house as an investment property. Among them, 63% reportedly envision a long-term rental opportunity; 37% say they would see it as a short-term rental. On average, potential investors who responded to the survey said their ideal monthly rent would be $900 per month for a long-term rental and $145 per night for a short-term rental.The study also revealed which states had the best markets/highest demand for tiny homes.

Donegal County Council promises action on pier parking

first_img Google+ Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Community Enhancement Programme open for applications Donegal County Council has confirmed that additional measures will be put in place at a number of piers in the county to help alleviate access problems.It comes following a number of recent incidents during which emergency services were delayed in attending an emergency due to access being blocked at piers by parked vehicles, including an incident at Bunbeg Pier, which Cllr Michael Cholm MacGiolla Easbuig said could have put lives at risk when coastguard personnel were delayed while responding to a callout.In a statement issued by Donegal County Council they say they are aware that emergency services have, on occasions, encountered difficulties reaching piers / slipways due to traffic congestion.The Council says it’s Piers & Harbours team will continue to monitor activity and review operations at locations known to be particularly prone to congestion and additional measures will be put in place to alleviate access problems, which will entail placing restrictions on where vehicles can park.However, they say as many of the piers and harbours that attract visitors in large numbers are quite small, with limited room for parking, there will continue to be a reliance on drivers behaving responsibly when deciding where to park.All drivers visiting a pier or harbour are asked to park only where it is safe to do so and never park where it is liable to cause an obstruction to other traffic, particularly on a slipway or anywhere that would hinder access to a slipway.The Council has warned that free access to slipways is vital for emergency services, in particular lifeboats as lives can depend on it.
