The Horned Frogs swept the Sooners 3-0 (25-23, 25-18, 25-20) to remain undefeated at home on the season (9-0).It was clear from the beginning that OU had come to play, with Sooners outsider hitter Alyssa Enneking setting the tone with her strong play in the first set. Her powerful presence at the net led to a 12-8 OU lead then a 19-15 lead for the Sooners later in the match.Enneking would have five of the Sooners’ 16 first set kills and a total of 12 in the match.TCU head coach Jill Kramer and her team had known they would face one of the Big 12’s best hitters (Enneking), and they prepared for just that.“We do a great job, coaching staff and then us, trying to engage in what our plan is against them; knowing percentages and when the ball goes to her and when it doesn’t,” said TCU senior middle blocker Anna Walsh about playing about Enneking.However, the Horned Frogs answered the powerful play of OU with offensive firepower of their own. Led by Walsh and senior outside hitter Lexi MacLean, the Frogs had four kills as part of a 10-4 run to take the first set 25-23.The game would only get easier for the Frogs from there, as the Sooners had no answer for freshman outside hitter Élan McCall in the second set. McCall had 6 kills in the set combined with a .385 hitting percentage. McCall would finish with 16 kills and 14 digs in the match, her sixth double-double of the season and 13th straight game with double-digit kills.“Before every match we try to talk offensive game plan,” Walsh said. “[Tonight], I think it was great execution.”Sophomore setter Tori Dilfer was a huge part of that offensive execution for TCU, as she recorded 41 assists in the match.“I thought Tori did a really good job,” Kramer said, “And that’s good, because sometimes, when you don’t pass well, you can be very one dimensional.”The Frogs played well on defense in both the second and third sets, slowing down the Sooners offense and cruising to victory.Sophomore Berklie Baker had five digs in the third set alone for TCU. Baker would finish with eight digs in the match in her fourth straight game as libero for the Frogs.After playing at home in their first match, the Frogs will head north for their next two games against Kansas and Kansas State.“We talked about it immediately after the match,” Kramer said. “Just remember that tomorrow we are 0-0 again and we need to prep for Kansas the same way we just did for OU.”First serve for TCU’s matchup with Kansas is set for 1 p.m. Sept. 22. + posts TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Linkedin Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ ReddIt First TCU spring game since 2018 gets fans primed for a highly-anticipated fall Facebook Previous articleStudent involved in hazing incident had blood alcohol five times the legal limitNext articleStudents practice Judaism without religious accommodations Colin Post RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Taylor’s monster slam highlights big weekend for TCU Athletics Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ ReddIt Despite series loss, TCU proved they belong against No. 8 Texas Tech Colin Post is a Sports Broadcasting and Journalism double-major from Houston, Texas.

The candidates were seemingly aware of the negative reaction they received from the country after the first debate and changed their tones accordingly. After the first debate was strained with insults and interruptions, last night’s debate was fairly cordial.NBC’s Kristen Welker was the moderator Thursday night. During the hour and a half, Welker asked the candidates questions about the coronavirus, the economy, foreign interference in the election and the candidates’ finances.Cold front heads toward Fort Worth this weekendA strong cold front arrived this morning, hitting Fort Worth and the rest of North Texas with lower temperatures than normal for late October.The weather will continue through Monday, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The front, which arrived mid-morning Friday, should cause temperatures to drop throughout the day. Early Friday morning, temperatures in Fort Worth were in the low 70s. According to the National Weather Service, the temperature could fall to 49 degrees by 10 p.m. tonight. While “rain will probably be on the light side Friday,” according to meteorologist Monique Sellers, it should still be expected. There’s an 80% chance of rain and thunderstorms in Tarrant County on Friday. Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court nomination moved to final voteSupreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett moved through the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, according to ABC News. She will now face a full Senate confirmation vote, in which she needs a majority vote to be confirmed as the next Supreme Court Justice. This committee vote, which Barrett needed to continue her path down the nomination, was boycotted by Democratic members of the committee. In the Democrat’s seats were posters of those who they say would be hurt by Barrett’s nomination, those with pre-existing conditions, as Barrett is primed to cast a tie-breaking vote striking down the Affordable Care Act.Barrett passed through the committee with no Democratic support. Each Republican on the committee voted Barrett through. The Senate confirmation vote, which is Barrett’s final obstacle, is yet to be scheduled.Minnesota judge drops third-degree murder charge against George Floyd’s killerFILE – This combination of June 3, 2020, file photos, provided by the Hennepin County, Minn.m, Sheriff’s Office, shows, from left, Derek Chauvin, J.

Reporters Without Borders condemns the readiness with which the Houthi rebels kidnap journalists and hold them in locations liable to be the target of coalition air strikes. Their oppressive behaviour has driven many journalists into exile.“We point out that attacks on the media and abductions of journalists are regarded as war crimes and as serious violations of the Geneva Conventions,” Reporters Without Borders head of MENA desk Alexandra El Khazen said. “The houthis must be held accountable for their actions towards civilians, especially journalists.”The two reporters were kidnapped on 20 May after covering a meeting organized by members of tribes opposed to the Houthi rebels in Al Hadi district in Dhamar, a province to the south of the capital, Sanaa.They were killed in one of the coalition air strikes targeting military sites controlled by the Houthis. The Yemeni Journalists’ Syndicate, which condemned their abduction, said they were being held at the national seismological centre in Jabal Hiran, which was destroyed by a coalition air strike on 21 May.The families of the two journalists had alerted local and international human rights NGOs and media outlets on 21 May about their abduction and had appealed for help in obtaining their rapid release.According to the families, Houthi rebels intercepted the two journalists together with the activist Hussein Al-Ayssi at a military checkpoint, searching them and confiscating their equipment.The families said they were then held along with dozens of other people in a building in Jabal Hiran. Suhail TV, Belqees TV and Yemen Youth TV issued statements condemning their detention and holding the rebels responsible for their fate.The information ministry and some local media have accused the Houthis of using hostages as human shields. A Houthi rebel representative rejected the charge, accusing the Saudi-led coalition of making no distinction between civilian and military targets.Journalists abducted or missingHassan Othman Bader, a Sudanese journalist working for the Saudi government news agency SPA in Sanaa, was detained by rebels in the eastern province of Hadida around the time of the start of the Saudi-led air strikes two months ago. He was freed on the 13 May.The journalist Jalal Al-Shar’abi was abducted from his home on 24 April by members of the Houthi security forces, who fired on his car, badly injuring his driver. Shar’abi’s fate is still unknown.Waheed Al-Sufi, the editor of the daily Al-Arabiya, was abducted from a post office on 6 April by unidentified persons, who reportedly asked him if he worked for the Saudi TV station of the same name.Yemen is ranked 168th out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

In the statement issued by ICE, it was said that “non-immigrant F-1 and M-1 students attending schools operating entirely online may not take a full course load and remain in the United States.” “Active students currently in the United States enrolled in such programs must depart the country or take other measures, such as transferring to a school with in-person instruction to remain in lawful status. If not, they may face immigration consequences including, but not limited to, the initiation of removal proceedings.” As per an Indian Express report, the suit, filed by the two Universities, claims that the directive issued by the ICE is “arbitrary and capricious” and seeks for a temporary restraining order prohibiting the US Government from enforcing the same. It has been submitted that the Universities are being pressurized to open by the federal government, despite the growing spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. It has further been underlined in the plea that “by threatening to force many F-1 students to withdraw from Harvard and MIT, the Defendants have put both schools to an impossible choice: lose numerous students who bring immense benefits to the school or take steps to retain those students through in-person classes, even when those contradict each school’s judgement about how best to protect the health of the students, faculty, staff and the entire university community”. It has been prayed for the District Court in Boston, Massachusetts to hold that the act of the federal government is unlawful as not only does it violate the Administrative Procedure Act, but also no notice had been provided to the public before it was announced. Both the Presidents, of Harvard and MIT, had penned letters against the ICE Guidelines, condemning the short-sightedness of the same, as it would invariably jeopardize the well-being of its students. “ICE’s action leaves hundreds of thousands of international students with no educational options within the United States. Just weeks from the start of the fall semester, these students are largely unable to transfer to universities providing on-campus instruction, notwithstanding ICE’s suggestion that they might do so to avoid removal from the country. Moreover, for many students, returning to their home countries to participate in online instruction is impossible, impracticable, prohibitively expensive, and/or dangerous.” The Indian Express report provides figures regarding Indian students who will face the brunt of the Guidelines. “A little over 46,000 F-visas (which include students’ family members) were issued to Indians in 2019, roughly 11% of the total 3.9 lakh such visas issued that year, records of the US State Department show. Among the total 9,500 M-visas last year, 714, or 7.5%, went to Indians. Indians on F-visas and M-visas amounted to almost 5% of all Indians on non-immigrant visas in the US in 2019.” Noting that the consequences of the sudden displacement as thrust upon the international students is both personal and financial, both the Universities have moved against the Trump Administration, calling for a temporary restraining order, and a preliminary and permanent injunctive relief against the enforcement of the ICE Guidelines, as reported here in The Harvard Crimson.
