TCU led 67-63 with 5:53 remaining, but the Cowboys went on a 12-2 run over the next two and a half minutes to put the game out of reach for the Horned Frogs.“Everybody in the locker room is disappointed,” TCU forward Kenrich Williams said. “We knew this was a game that we should have won, and we’re disappointed.”TCU head coach Jamie Dixon also reflected on the Horned Frog’s third consecutive defeat.“Tight game down to nine minutes, ten minutes left,” Dixon said. “They simply outplayed us down the stretch and got a 13 point win in a game that was tied.”The Horned Frogs have dropped nine-straight games in Stillwater with the last and only win coming more than 90 years ago during the 1924-25 season, 07-16.  TCU is looking for its first win in the state of Oklahoma since a 57-54 win at Tulsa on Feb. 26, 1998.The loss dropped the TCU to 14-6 overall and 3-5 in the Big 12, now  14-3 against unranked opponents.TCU lost just its third game out of sixteen when out-rebounding its opponent, edging out the Cowboys 35-30. The rebounding advantage fueled TCU for most of the night, as they had 23 second chance points, but the Horned Frogs still finished the game with a subpar shooting percentage of 39% on 24-61 shooting.In an attempt to fix their offensive woes, TCU featured a new starting lineup Jaylen Fisher, Alex Robinson, Kenrich Williams, Brandon Parrish and Vladimir Brodziansky. The Horned Frogs had gone 10-straight games with the same starting lineup, but replaced J.D. Miller with Parrish.“We took too many jump shots at the end,” TCU forward Kenrich Williams said.Dixon agreed.“The rebound was the only thing that kept us in it,” Dixon said.  We were tied and still shooting horribly from the three.”Even though the Horned Frogs out-rebounded OSU, the Cowboys were able to make their presence felt down low, outscoring TCU in the paint, 50-26.TCU’s aggressive offensive rebounding approach came back to bite to them, as the Cowboys had ten more fast break points than the Horned Frogs 18-8.“I didn’t think our defense was sound,” Dixon said.Although the Horned Frogs had a tremendous improvement at the free throw, TCU still couldn’t take advantage. “We made our free throws, but then I look at them and they shot 95 percent and we shot 91,” Dixon said. “They even out shot us there.”OSU’s x-factor Monday night was a Dallas-native, freshman guard Jawun Evans, who scored a game-high 27 points on 11-17 shooting.“He is a tough guard,” Williams said. “When he gets a full head of steam, he is quick, and he can make plays when he has the ball in his hands.”Williams and TCU forward Vladimir Brodziansky led the way for the Horned Frogs in scoring, each finishing with 20 points. Brodziansky heated up late in the game for TCU.“Coaches were just telling me to stay and stay focused, keep going, don’t give up,” Brodziansky said. “I was just trying to play harder, give more effort in my shots, finish a little bit stronger.”Brodziansky led TCU in scoring for the fifth consecutive game and a team-best eighth time this season. Williams recorded his eighth double-double of the season and 10th of his career with a career-high 20 points and a team-best 12 boards, with eleven coming on the offensive end of the court.TCU returns home to Schollmaier Arena Saturday to face the Auburn Tigers.

Presidential candidates urged to resolve press room contoversy

first_imgNews South KoreaAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders has appealed to whichever candidate wins 19 December presidential elections to find a solution to a row over the removal of press rooms from within the country’s ministries.The administration decided in May 2007, at the initiative of President Roh Moo-hyun, to close most press rooms inside public buildings and construct new ones but journalists were then barred from free access to ministries and major administrative buildings.The reform was seen as necessary to concentrate official communications in just a few press rooms in the capital, Seoul, Gwacheon and in Daejeon.The government adopted the new rules under the heading “Steps to develop a modern support system for the media”, but they most journalists’ organisations objected to them as an attempt to restrict access to information. Civil servants can no longer speak directly to the press.The journalists in protest refused to use the new rooms and now ‘camp out’ in the corridors of the various administrations.The authorities on 11 October closed press rooms which had been used for decades within the main administrative buildings. The Internet was cut off and equipment removed. South KoreaAsia – Pacific Help by sharing this information RSF_en News Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia News “The very tense relations between journalists and the authorities following the closure of press rooms is damaging to the work of the media,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.”We urge the next president to find a quick and satisfactory solution for everyone to this conflict, which has lasted several months already. The journalists’ requirements should be provided for to the extent that they show a real concern for the public’s right to access official information,” it added.Elsewhere, Reporters Without Borders called on the candidates to make public their position on a reform of Article 7 of the national security law, which still allows journalists to be imprisoned for expressing any sympathy with the regime in North Korea.”It is not a sign of weakness towards the totalitarian regime in North Korea to remove penalties from the law which are contrary to freedom of expression,” the organisation said.

ELAM: Brinksmanship: Trump’s tariff strategy, ‘the new energy realism,’ and grasping oil prices

first_img Pinterest West Texas Food Bank Logo This column has addressed the tariff issue before it became the mainstream topic it is today. I will grant that the Smoot Hawley tariffs were across the board on near everything, so far President Trump has singled out steel (25%) and aluminum (10%). It is still not clear whether this applies to the raw metal, partially finished goods or a final product.Apparently the Art of the Deal is emerging; there is a pattern here, as Stuart Varney observed on his television show this week. President Trump makes an out of the ballpark, far reaching announcement. The targets of the policy react in alarm. Then Trump retreats a bit, apparently gearing down for a more realistic compromise.After announcing there would be no compromise, everyone would pay the tariffs, Trump promptly reversed course, exempting Canada and Mexico. But then The Treasury Secretary cautioned that would depend on whether the NAFTA negotiations were successfully concluded.Some 109 Republicans signed a letter opposing the tariffs followed by a few dozen Democrats. Other countries are already planning ‘targeted tariffs to get the attention of Republican lawmakers. For example, rumor has it that countries may impose import duties on Harley Davidson motorcycles made in Paul Ryan’s home state of Wisconsin. Ditto for Kentucky bourbon from Mitch McConnell’s state.The Man Behind Trump’s Tariffs, WSJ todayNow, Mr. Cohn has resigned. After lobbying by Mr. Navarro, the president on Thursday signed proclamations imposing heavy tariffs on steel and aluminum. White House officials say Mr. Navarro is in the running to replace Mr. Cohn, who fought against the tariffs. Next on the president’s trade agenda are possible sanctions on China for intellectual-property violations—a longtime goal of Mr. Navarro, who came to candidate Trump’s attention with his anti-Beijing books.There is no question that China has completely disregarded intellectual property laws. Both music and movie discs are openly on display with no royalties paid to the U.S.. But with China only providing 2.2% of U.S. Steel, will a tariff get China’s attention?And Trump at least has North Korea talking, which is what they do best rather than behaving. But we can at least be sure Trump will not have the same naivety that characterized past administrations. Attempts to bribe the North Koreans from their nuclear ambitions have all failed.Meanwhile, former Texas Governor, now Energy Secretary Rick Perry, had his own announcements this week.“Secretary of Energy Rick Perry announced a national energy policy that he dubbed “the new energy realism.” The tenets of this new approach, he said, were a belief in innovation rather than regulation and a warm embrace of the fossil fuels that scientists believe are responsible for climate change.”Texas Monthly website reporting on Perry’s talk at the CERAWeek annual energy conferenceThe Obama administration ran away from fossil fuels, the Trump administration embraces them. Perry called the view pessimistic. He noted a billion people around the world still lack access to electricity. He said it was a moral responsibility for the USA to substantially reduce that number in the future.He rejected the Paris Agreement as harmful to economic growth in developing countries. Instead he called for a global alliance which would embrace affordable fossil fuels. Actually the photographs of miserable air quality in China where citizens must wear face masks suggests the Chinese have done just that.Perry has a unique alternative to walling off the Houston Ship channel from future hurricanes. Instead he suggested building refineries in Appalachia near the Marcellus and Utica formations. This would be in the heart of Trump country and a boost for the Rust Belt economy.Oil prices are stuck in the low 60s still needing to surmount the previous $66-67 highs to regain a bull footing. Shares of Apache have tumbled to $34. The XES energy service ETF is a mere $2.50 above it 2009 low. Over the last two years it has double bottomed at $12.50 which was the 2009 low. We will report on any uptick in the moving averages that might suggest a recovery.Follow Dennis at Facebook By admin – March 11, 2018 Twitter Local NewsBusiness Facebook ELAM: Brinksmanship: Trump’s tariff strategy, ‘the new energy realism,’ and grasping oil prices WhatsApp Twitter Previous articlePermian Basin Drilling Report: Mar. 1 – Mar. 7Next articleHIGH SCHOOL TRACK AND FIELD: West Texas Relays Scoreboard admin WhatsApp Pinterestlast_img read more
