Texas Frog Camps are now free for incoming students

first_imgReddIt Graduation: Looking back Linkedin printFrog Camps in Texas will be free for the first time this summer.The nine Texas camps have between 160 and 350 students and used to cost between $200 and $250, said Trung Nguyen, director of first year experience. About 80 percent of incoming students attend the camps.Funding is coming out of TCU’s operating budget, said Kathy Cavins-Tull, vice chancellor for student affairs.The biggest obstacle for many students attending Frog Camp is the financial burden.“What we wanted to do was eliminate that obstacle for all of our students,” Nguyen said. “If you want to come to a Frog Camp, we want to make it accessible for you.”Frog Camps started 20 years ago and have been widely successful, Cavins-Tull said.While there is no clear causal relationship, students who attend the camps tend to persist and graduate from TCU at a higher rate than those who do not, Cavins-Tull said. However, connecting students to peer leaders and mentors among members of TCU’s faculty and staff contributes to that higher success rate, she said.A sense of belonging is critical for incoming college students, and the camps create an immediate community, Nguyen said.“Someone’s going to miss them if they’re not there,” Nguyen said.The plan is to keep the camps free, but the success of the program will be evaluated each year to determine if it is worth the cost, Cavins-Tull said.Hunter Vaccaro, a Frog Camp executive director, said the camps help students recognize that college is doable.“We get all these students together and kind of call out the elephant in the room and say, ‘Look around you. You are not alone,’” Vaccaro said.Frog Camps will begin in early June and continue through the summer into August.

The organisation draws his attention in particular to the case of Pham Hong Son, who is very ill.”Reporters Without Borders, a press freedom organisation, would like to ask you to include prisoners of conscience Pham Hong Son, Nguyen Khac Toan and Nguyen Vu Binh in the list of prisoners who will be pardoned on the 60th anniversary of Vietnam’s independence on 2 September. We think the time has come to show clemency towards these three men, who have already spent three years in prison and whose only crime was to express themselves freely on the Internet.We would in particular like to draw your attention to the state of health of Pham Hong Son, who has chest pains and is spitting up blood – the symptoms of tuberculosis, a disease that could be fatal. Several tumours have also appeared on his face and body, possibly indicating that the conditions in his cell are prejudicial to his health. We therefore urge you to show leniency towards Pham Hong Son, especially as his case is very similar to that of Le Chi Quang, who you agreed to release in June 2004 on medical grounds.As well as Le Chi Quang, four other political prisoners have been freed in the past seven months: Pham Que Duong and Tran Khue in July 2004, and Dr. Nguyen Dan Que and the journalist Nguyen Dinh Huy in February 2005. We hailed all of these releases and they give us hope that you will agree to reexamine the cases of Pham Hong Son, Nguyen Khac Toan and Nguyen Vu Binh, whose detention has gone on too long.” RSF_en Three more independent reporters arrested in Vietnam April 22, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Vietnam Vietnam sentences journalist Tran Thi Tuyet Dieu to eight years in prison April 27, 2021 Find out more News to go further VietnamAsia – Pacific last_img read more

Her driver was shot dead shortly after her abduction.“All of us are very relieved that Jumana’s ordeal is now over,” RFE/RL president Jeffrey Gedmin said. “Journalists like Jumana put their lives on the line every day. They are dedicated journalists, brave people, and Iraqi patriots. We are proud to know them.”An RFE/RL spokesperson told Reporters Without Borders that Obaidi “is in relatively good shape and is currently in a safe place.” The identity of her kidnappers and the circumstances of her release have not been made known.Reporters Without Borders points out that there is no news of the current whereabouts or fate of 14 other journalists taken hostage in Iraq.———23.10.07 : Radio Free Europe correspondent missing, probably kidnapped, her driver shot deadReporters Without Borders today said it was extremely worried by the disappearance of an Iraqi correspondent of the US-funded Radio Free Europe/ Radio Liberty (RFE/RL). Her driver’s body was found after she went missing yesterday in Baghdad. Two RFE/RL correspondents have already been killed since the start of the year.“The circumstances of her disappearance suggest she could have been kidnapped,” the press freedom organisation said. “The number of kidnappings of journalists has fallen this year, compared with the previous two years, but yesterday’s development suggests that the threat still exists. Journalists working for government-funded media, especially those funded by the US government, continue to be a favourite target of the armed militia operating in Iraq.”In the past four years, Iraq has become one the world’s biggest centres for hostage-taking. A total of 85 media workers have been kidnapped since the US-led invasion in March 2003. Of these, 43 have been released, 27 have been murdered by their abductors, and the fate of the other 15, including the RFE/RL correspondent, is unknown.Iraq is also the world’s deadliest country for the media, with a total of 205 journalists and media assistants murdered there since March 2003.The name of the RFE/RL correspondent who went missing yesterday has not been released. RFE/RL said police found her driver’s body in the northeast Baghdad neighbourhood of Al-Bonuk. He had been shot dead. So far, no trace of the journalist or her car has been found and no group has claimed responsibility for her abduction.The two RFE/RL correspondents already killed this year are Khamail Khalaf and Nizar Al-Radhi. Khalaf was kidnapped by two gunmen as he left his office in Baghdad on 3 April. His body was found two days later. Radhi was killed when gunmen opened fire on a group of journalists who had gone to a news conference in the city of Amara, 365 km south of Baghdad, on 30 May.

This year it was awarded jointly to Kitaev, Gregory W. Moore of Rutgers University, and Nicholas Read of Yale University for their work on condensed matter research.The work of Kitaev, Moore, and Read has “played a fundamental role in recent advances in our understanding of the quantum states of matter and quantum entanglement theory,” according to the ICTP’s press release.Kitaev is cited for proposing an innovative method of computation, called topological quantum computation, which builds upon Moore and Read’s theory of non-Abelian anyons. Anyons are special quasiparticles that exist under the conditions of the fractional quantum Hall effect (FQHE). The FQHE is observed in semiconductor structures that contain a thin layer of mobile electrons. When such systems are cooled to very low temperatures and immersed in a strong magnetic field, the electrons form a collective state analogous to a liquid.“Anyons are like bubbles and lumps in that liquid, which can move around, fuse, or annihilate,” Kitaev explains. “However, these quasiparticles have very strange properties: they carry a fractional electron charge and defy the textbook classification into bosons and fermions. For bosons, such as photons, switching the places of two identical particles has no effect, while for fermions like electrons or protons, the particle exchange introduces a minus sign into the calculation. Switching the places of two identical anyons results in an extra factor other that 1 or -1.”“Non-Abelian anyons are even weirder because their state is not determined by where they are spatially; there is also some hidden state in the liquid between them. Exchanging two particles or moving one around the other alters that state.”As part of his proposed method of topological quantum computation, Kitaev suggested that using this hidden state as a quantum computer memory could make such computation more stable and error proof.“Kitaev’s work on fault-tolerant quantum computation using topological quantum phases with non-Abelian quasiparticles has had profound implications in quantum information theory,” the award citation notes.Caltech faculty who have previously been awarded the Dirac Medal are John H. Schwarz, the Harold Brown Professor of Theoretical Physics, Emeritus, in 1989; and John Hopfield, the Roscoe G. Dickinson Professor of Chemistry and Biology, Emeritus, in 2001.last_img read more

A Single Bench of Justice Puneet Gupta observed, “The court has been called upon to assess and appreciate the different angles of the prosecution case set up against the accused as is evident from the arguments that have been raised on behalf of the accused. The court is not to record any sort of finding on the arguments raised by the learned counsel for the applicant-accused which are based on the factual as well as legal aspects of the case.” The Judge concurred with the submission made on behalf of the State by AGA Aseem Sawhney that the court cannot appreciate the evidence that has been collected by the prosecution against the accused while deciding the bail application. In the bail plea, Senior Advocate KS Johal had argued that the no case is made out against the accused from the material collected by the prosecution. He submitted that there is no eye witness of the occurrence and the case is based upon the circumstantial evidence. Johal further submitted that recovery of certain articles on alleged disclosure statement made by the accused, the theft alleged to have been committed by the accused, medical report stating death of the victim because of asphyxia sustained in manual strangulation and the time recorded in the post mortem report regarding of death of the victim— do not connect the accused with the commission of offence. Opposing this, Sawhney had argued, “the points raised on behalf of the accused cannot be finally considered and commented upon in the bail application as the same are matter of trial. The court is not required to thrash the evidence that has been gathered during the course of investigation by the police as it is for the trial court to appreciate the same.” Finding merit in this submission, the Court said it cannot record any observation with respect to the arguments raised by the accused. It further said, “The gravity of offence, evidence gathered by the police agency and the stage of the case do not entitle the applicant to bail in the present application.” The accused had also urged before the court that as the trial could not proceed due to COVID-19 pandemic and the challan is pending disposal for the last more than eight months, he should be bailed out. Refusing indulgence, the Court said, “The extraordinary situation happening due to pandemic cannot be a ground to grant bail to the accused in the case which is otherwise at its initial stage.” Case Title: Amrit Pal Singh v.

Rick Gates concludes his testimony against his former boss Paul Manafort

first_imgThe Washington Post/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Rick Gates, the former campaign aide to President Donald Trump, wrapped up his eight-hour long testimony today against his former boss Paul Manafort, who is on trial in federal court in Virginia on bank and tax fraud charges.Manafort is accused of evading taxes on $60 million earned in overseas lobbying and consulting work for a Russian-backed Ukrainian political party. Manafort has pleaded not guilty to all charges.During a relatively brief cross-examination Wednesday morning, Manafort’s lead attorney Kevin Downing alleged that Gates had a total of four extra-marital affairs, including the one Manafort’s defense team had previously described as a part of Gate’s “secret” life.Before Gates could respond, prosecutors objected on the grounds of relevance, and after a meeting at the judge’s bench, the claim was never mentioned again.On Tuesday, Gates had acknowledged from the witness stand that he used money embezzled from Manafort to finance a London apartment he used to engage in an extra-marital affair. Defense attorneys contend that Gates embezzled about $3 million from Manafort.Throughout his three-day testimony, Gates described his part in shielding millions of dollars in more a dozen offshore accounts from United States tax collectors. Gates said he did so at Manafort’s direction, and also admitted to embezzling “several hundred thousand” dollars from Manafort.Asked if he told Manafort about the relationship in London 10 years ago, Gates said he had, and added that Manafort was supportive and that he didn’t fire him for it.The defense on Wednesday also asked Gates about an interview he sat for with officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in 2014. Gates testified that he had disclosed offshore accounts in Cyprus and the Grenadines during the interviews.When asked if Manafort was truthful with the FBI, Gates answered, “To the best of my recollection, yes.”Special counsel prosecutor Greg Andres moved swiftly through his cross-examination of Gates on Wednesday morning. Andres asked Gates whether the government had ever charged him with embezzling, and Gates said no.Andres also asked Gates whether Manafort had ever confronted him about the embezzlement, some of it through padded expense invoices, and Gates also said no.Andres then asked Gates “who paid for those [expense reports] ultimately?”“The Ukrainian businessmen,” Gates responded, implying that Manafort did not pay for the expenses Gates submitted to Manafort, but that the Ukrainian businessmen reimbursed him for the fraudulent expense reports he submitted.Gates was then asked questions about his pre-trial preparation sessions with the special counsel. Asked if he was ever “told how to answer” questions during the trial, Gates said he wasn’t.“The only answer I was told was to tell the truth.”Gates also testified that he faced consequences if he lied before the jury. Andres asked“If you lie here today and those charges are brought again — would you have a defense to that?”, Andres asked.“No,” Gates replied.“As you sit here today, is there any doubt in your mind that if you lie, the special counsel will rip up your plea agreement?” Andres continued.“No there is not,” Gates answered.Next up on the stand is an FBI accountant, whose testimony is expected to last about two hours.

Veteran detective killed, partner wounded in shooting in Ohio; ‘suicidal’ suspect in custody, police say

first_imgiStock(CINCINNATI) — A veteran sheriff’s detective was shot to death and his partner was injured in a gun battle with a 23-year-old suspect in an attempted burglary, who was allegedly suicidal and barricaded in an apartment building in a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio, officials said.The alleged shooter — identified as Wade Edward Winn — kept police at bay for some 12 hours before he was taken into custody Sunday around 6:30 a.m. following another gunfight with a SWAT team, officials said.Killed in the confrontation was Detective Bill Brewer, the married father of a 5-year-old son and a 20-year veteran of the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office, officials said.“Deputy Brewer gave his life attempting to help a person who was admittedly suicidal,” Clermont County Sheriff Steve Lehey said in a statement Sunday morning. “This will forever change the atmosphere of the Clermont Sheriff’s Office.”The deadly standoff unfolded at about 7 p.m. on Saturday when a man called 911 and told a dispatcher that Winn had barricaded himself in his apartment, was armed, suicidal and refusing to leave, officials said.Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost said Winn was “involved in a burglary attempt” prior to barricading himself in the apartment of the man who called 911.Brewer and Lt. Nick DeRose responded to the call and came under fire around 10:30 p.m. at the Green at Royal Oaks Apartments in Pierce Township about 20 miles southeast of Cincinnati on the Ohio-Kentucky border, officials said.The mortally-wounded Brewer was taken to Anderson Mercy Hospital in Cincinnati, where he died, officials said.“This Officer’s valor is now recorded for all time, written in blood,” Yost said in a statement. “We mourn, and we will remember.”DeRose, a 22-year veteran of the Clermont Sheriff’s Office, was treated for a gunshot wound at University of Cincinnati Medical Center and released, officials said.“It’s a very sad morning for the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office,” said Capt. Jeff Sellars, a spokesman for the agency.The area around the apartment building was shut down as Winn allegedly continued firing throughout the night. Cincinnati ABC affiliate WCPO-TV reported hearing shots around 10:30 p.m. and just before midnight.The Clermont County Special Response Team and a SWAT team from the Cincinnati Police Department responded to the scene and evacuated neighboring residents. Crisis intervention officers attempted to negotiate with Winn via bullhorn, asking him to surrender.At about 6:30 a.m. Sunday, police were heard shouting at Winn on the bullhorn, repeatedly saying, “Come outside. We won’t hurt you. We won’t hurt you,” WCOP-TV reported.A few minutes later, police sirens sounded and an officer was heard yelling, “Go, go, go!” followed by gunshots and fire that broke out at the apartment complex.The suspect was taken into custody by SWAT team members who “endured a barrage of gunfire generated by Winn,” officials said in a statement.It was not immediately clear what started the fire at the complex, but Sellars said a blaze erupted “as a result of the standoff.”“The Clermont County Sheriff’s Office has requested the bureau of criminal investigations to handle the criminal aspect of the standoff,” Sellars said.He said the state fire marshal’s office is investigating the fire.Winn’s criminal history includes several misdemeanor marijuana convictions, dating back to 2015, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.In June, Winn was arrested for improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle, according to the Enquirer. He was sentenced to five days in jail and placed on a month of probation, the newspaper reported citing court records.Brewer’s death marks the fifth police officer killed by gunfire in the line of duty this year in the U.S.The fatal shooting came just 14 days after Mobile, Alabama, police officer Sean Tuder was killed while serving an arrest warrant on Jan. 20.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
