Former All-Big 12 setter Dilfer announces transfer to Louisville

first_imgLinkedin Despite series loss, TCU proved they belong against No. 8 Texas Tech printSophomore Tori Dilfer continues to impress. Photo by Eric SasadeuszAfter two seasons in Fort Worth, setter Tori Dilfer announced that she will be transferring to Louisville Wednesday.“I always respect any player’s decision whatever it is,” head coach Jill Kramer said. “[I] just want her [Dilfer] to be happy and successful.”The move comes just two months after the end of TCU’s season in which they finished 15-12 and failed to make the NCAA tournament for consecutive seasons. Louisville finished 21-8 and lost in the second round of the NCAA tournament to Illinois, 3-1.After seeing limited time as a freshman, Dilfer thrived in the starting setter role as a sophomore. The San Jose, Calif., native played in every set of every match, totaling 1,134 assists, which was good for 11.12 assists per set (3rd in the Big 12). Her 2018 assist average puts her at No. 5 all-time on TCU’s single season list.Dilfer was also excellent from the service line. Her 40 service aces were good for 0.40 aces per set—the best average in the Big 12. That mark ties her at No. 7 all-time on TCU’s single season list.After the season, Dilfer was named to both the All-Big 12 Second Team and the Academic All-Big 12 First Team.Despite Dilfer’s departure, TCU still has plenty of options at the setter position.“I think the void will be filled,” Kramer said. “It’s who steps up and takes that on.”Junior Ashley Kozer has plenty of experience at the position after starting at Loyola Maryland as a freshman before transferring to TCU and learning behind Dilfer for a year.Kramer is also excited about incoming freshman McKenzie Nichols. A three-year letter-winner at Southlake Carroll High School, Nichols was ranked No. 34 on the PrepVolleyball.com’s Senior Aces list.“Really, I’m very very comfortable with our roster right now,” Kramer said. “I am very comfortable and very confident in the players that we have right now and the ones coming in.”Kramer said that she could look to utilize a two-setter system next season; however, that decision is still up in the air.Personnel decisions will be made as the team starts practices in the spring and takes a foreign trip together in the summer before starting the NCAA season in the fall.“I know our team’s really really hungry,” Kramer said. “They understand that their work and their consistent effort pays off.” Twitter Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ Twitter Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ Colin Post Facebook Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Previous articleTurnovers and Dedric Lawson doom No. 25 TCU’s upset bid against No. 7 KansasNext articleLacking offensive firepower, Horned Frogs outmatched by No. 20 Cyclones 92-54 Colin Post RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Taylor’s monster slam highlights big weekend for TCU Athletics Sophomore Tori Dilfer continues to impress.

Garda Ken gets set to carry up Carrauntoohil

first_imgWhatsApp NewsCommunityGarda Ken gets set to carry up CarrauntoohilBy David Raleigh – February 22, 2020 972 Print Facebook Twitter A LIMERICK Garda is planning to carry a rowing machine to the summit of Ireland’s tallest mountain where he will row a distance of ten kilometres to raise funds for children battling terminal and serious illnesses.Ken McDonald from Ashbrook Gardens on the Ennis Road has set a €30,000 target for his “Carry up Carrauntoohill” fundraiser to cover the cost of repairs to the Share A Dream ‘Dreamland’ play area which was broken into a number of times last year.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The one of a kind fantasy play land on the Dublin Road allows for non-able bodied children to play with their able-bodied siblings and friends.A champion rower and training instructor at the Garda Training College in Templemore, Garda McDonald told the Limerick Post that he was determined to help the Share a Dream Foundation after meeting its founder Shay Kinsella last year.“To say I was blown away by the amazing work being done by the charity for seriously ill and disabled children all over Ireland for the last 27 years, would be an understatement.“Not only do Share a Dream make dreams come true for children fighting terrible life threatening illnesses but they have also built the very first ever all- inclusive magical indoor Fun Centre called Dreamland.”Garda McDonald said the charity relies solely on donations and the goodwill of the community and does not receive any government funding.“So, when the charity suffered two major break-ins last year causing thousands of euros worth of damages, I decided I had to do something to raise much needed funds for repairs and to make dreams come true for terminally ill children while raising more national awareness that the charity deserves.”“Rowing is my passion and I have been so fortunate in my career to have broken the World indoor record over 1000m last November at the Provincial rowing Championships; I won the Rhine marathon in Germany in a men’s coxed quad, and won two Gold medals at the World Masters rowing championships in Budapest.“So, whatever I decided to do, it had to be associated with rowing. After witnessing the amazing courage and determination that the children endure daily to find some quality in life, I decided I would challenge myself to the limit for Share a Dream.”He plans to carry out his ‘Carry up Carrauntoohill’ challenge on Saturday, March 28.“I will be attempting to carry my rowing machine, which weighs 26kgs up Carrauntoohill and then row 10 kilometres before bringing it back down.“My aim is to raise €30,000 rectify the damage caused by the break-ins and so that this wonderful organisation can continue making dreams come true for very sick children.”He is now encouraging people to take part in raising funds by organising a sponsored cycle on a stationary bike or rowing machine; a sponsored head shave/beard shave.“Or why not get out with the kids and go for a walk or a climb in your local area,” he suggests.Online donations can be made at on iDonate or contact 061-200080 to get a sponsor pack.center_img Email Linkedin Advertisement Previous articleCity’s churches will fill for Limerick Choral FestivalNext articleWATCH: Munster earn bonus point win over Zebre David Raleighlast_img read more

Young helpers learn life skills

first_img Facebook Young helpers learn life skills Facebook Burleson Elementary.PTA, Booster Clubs Information. By admin – May 13, 2018 WhatsApp Twitter Burleson Elementary School’s Rising Stars venture was just implemented this year, but it has already garnered the Outstanding Junior Volunteer Program award.The group received the recognition at the recent Volunteers & Partners Celebration.Principal Tristan Specter said Rising Stars is for fourth and fifth-graders and there are about 60 members. About 29 played on the playground on the campus May 9.They help with almost anything around campus and he provides treats and activities for them, such as movies. The students help the counselors, librarians, read to younger students and deliver Food 2 Kids.“If the office needs help moving anything or doing anything, they’re the ones they’re supposed to call for help,” Specter said.The Rising Stars also helped kindergarten students log onto Istation, a web-based learning program that helps campuses determine how their students are doing academically.Specter said he was glad that the students and Volunteer Chair Pat Lopez won the VIPS award.“I’m happy for the kids and happy for Pat because, honestly, it’s the kids’ good behavior. It’s the kids that are willing to help. … I’m proud of them and I’m proud of the hard work of all the VIPS,” Specter said.Fourth-graders Audree Porras, 9, and Joaquin Carrasco, 10, have enjoyed being part of Rising Stars.Porras said she wanted to join because it seemed like fun.“I like helping people — a lot,” Carrasco said.Both want to be part of the group again next year and they liked being recognized at the celebration lunch.Porras liked being in the newspaper and enjoyed the food.“Rosa’s Café. That was really, really good,” she said.Specter said part of the reason Rising Stars is just fourth and fifth-graders is that he wants to keep them coming to school.“I want to give them something to keep them motivated as they get older because when you come to school you’re so excited and so happy, but as they get older I want to keep them excited and happy about coming to school,” he said.The students have to go through a process to become part of Rising Stars and get a badge. If they keep their badge over the summer and bring it back, they can be fast-tracked.“… Part of the program is responsibility. If they lose their badge, then (they) start from ground zero with a brand-new sheet of paper. … You’ve got to be responsible for what you have,” Specter said.Specter said the program started in 2005 when he was assistant principal at Burleson with Martha Mitchell as principal. Specter brought it back this year.Burleson has 430 to 440 students in grades kindergarten through fifth.He said they discussed implementing it last year, but didn’t have enough time.“… I think it’s been a success. You see that these are kids that make good grades. These are kids that don’t get referrals. It’s probably about half of my fourth and fifth graders. That’s a big chunk of kids that are top-notch, great kids,” Specter said.Students from Burleson Rising Stars pose with Permian High School National Art Society student Tory Shelton, Burleson Principal Tristan Specter and ECISD Board Vice President Doyle Woodall (front).

RMBS Suit Filed by S&P Investors is Denied Revival by U.S. Supreme Court

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, News Home / Daily Dose / RMBS Suit Filed by S&P Investors is Denied Revival by U.S. Supreme Court Tagged with: Lawsuits Mortgage-Backed Securities Standard & Poor’s U.S. Supreme Court The U.S. Supreme Court recently decided to deny the revival of a suit involving allegedly false statements made about toxic mortgage-backed securities by Standard & Poor’s (S&P) rating agency.Boca Raton Firefighters & Police Pension Fund accused S&P’s parent company McGraw-Hill Financial CEO Harold McGraw III and former CFO Robert Bahash of breaking federal law by convincing investors that their credit ratings were accurate, according to court documents and a media report.Ultimately, the judge determined that the court system “will not credit mere business ‘puffery,’ which we have defined in this context as ‘statements [that] are too general to cause a reasonable investor to rely upon them.’”The suit, brought about by the pension fund shareholders in February 2013, stemmed from information given from a lawsuit by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) over S&P’s alleged role in the financial crisis. A district judge refused to revive the case in September 2013 based on allegations by the DOJ, saying that the outcome of the case would not have been changed by new information brought up about representations made by S&P to investors. The judge had previously found a lack of proof that S&P knowingly made false statements about the securities it rated. The Second Circuit Court affirmed the District Court’s decision in February and refused to grant the plaintiffs a rehearing, according to the report.S&P agreed to pay the DOJ $1.375 billion dollars to settle the financial crisis accusations in February 2015, according to the report.On July 20, 2015, the plaintiffs filed a petition for a writ of certiorari with the country’s highest court, claiming the lower court did not weigh the context of S&P’s statements about certain mortgage-backed securities before the crisis. The writ questioned “whether a verifiably false factual statement about a matter of obvious importance to a company can nevertheless constitute inactionable ‘puffery’ under the federal securities laws.”According to the court documents, between October 21, 2004 and March 11, 2008, S&P rated structured finance transactions including residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) and collateralized debt obligations (CDOs). S&P rated approximately 10,000 RMBS in 2006 and 2007 alone.The investors noted in the writ that “as the quality of the underlying housing loans declined and the RMBS and CDO products increasingly bundled “junk” loans, S&P intentionally adjusted its ratings models to rate those securities as AAA and investment grade in order to preserve and increase its market share.”McGraw-Hill representatives nor the investors responded to requests for comment.The suit clearly did not affect operations at McGraw-Hill, as their third quarter earnings statement released Tuesday reflected a 5 percent increase in revenue to $1.32 billion compared to last year.”The performance in the quarter demonstrates the balance across the portfolio as the Company continued to deliver solid revenue growth, margin expansion and adjusted EPS growth during the third quarter despite a significant decline in global bond issuance,” said Douglas L. Peterson, president and CEO of McGraw Hill Financial.He added, “This year’s margin expansion is the result of top-line growth and a concerted focus across the Company to deliver on our productivity targets. As we look to continue to build shareholder value, we are ever more excited with the addition of SNL and the synergy potential with S&P Capital IQ and Platts to create an offering that is distinctive and essential to the global financial markets. Lastly, we remain committed to actively repurchasing our shares–having repurchased 4.9 million shares in the last nine months.” Xhevrije West is a talented writer and editor based in Dallas, Texas.

Future of iconic Ritz Cinema in Twin Towns still in the balance
