Writer who helped students publish their work will visit campus

first_imgprintSeven TCU students are now published authors, thanks to TCU professor and writer Amy Howell.After the success of Howell and co-author Anne Deeter Gallaher’s first book “Women in High Gear,” some people said they wanted something similar written for their children.Enter “Students in High Gear,” a book Howell said was born out of “Women in High Gear.” Howell added that she and Gallaher felt there was “something missing for students receiving good advice.”The book gives insight into past mistakes of high school and college students by incorporating actual essays written by students themselves.A majority of these essays come from TCU students in one of professor Bob Akin’s marketing classes.Akin gave his class a questionnaire last semester asking: “If you could go back as a freshman, what would you do differently to be successful in college?”Out of approximately 40 responses, seven were selected for the book itself.Compared to other colleges, TCU had the lowest number of essay submissions, but there were more TCU student essays selected for this book than any other school.Howell said that this is because the students at TCU “just get it.”“Not only do the Frogs have a great football team, but TCU gets it all the way around,” she said.Akin wanted his students to be a part of this book because he said he feels it can stop history from repeating itself.He even said that the book should be required for all incoming first-year students.“Einstein said that doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome every time is insanity,” said Akin. “We want you to learn from other’s failures and successes, and this book gives you a road map that’s going to help you minimize the bad and replicate the good.”Howell said her book is also a call to action for both parents and students.“Our book contains information that students cannot get in the classroom,” said Howell. “You’re not in college just to study and to have a good time, you’re in college to figure out what you want to do with your life. And it’s not the college’s job to help you do that, you’ve got to do that yourself. So this book is a playbook for that.”Although Howell did not attend TCU, she said she is a huge Horned Frog fan. Both of her parents graduated from TCU and she wants to launch the book here as a way to say thank you.“The book is getting launched at TCU largely because of Bob’s involvement with his marketing class and because of all the student voices in the book,” said Howell. “We just thought it would be fun to thank TCU for participating.”Howell’s book signing and launch event of “Students in High Gear” will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10 in the Brown-Lupton University Union Ballroom.She will also be signing copies of her book from 4-6 p.m. this Wednesday in the TCU bookstore.Students have an opportunity to see Howell and get a copy of her book at both events.

Construction creeps from Bellaire Drive onto Overton Park Drive in time for TCU football

But almost overnight they reappeared on nearby Overton Park Drive East.It might not seem like it, but the wastewater line work to replace decaying and aging infrastructure in the neighborhood is ahead of schedule. Come Christmas, the entire water infrastructure improvements project will be finished, said Project Manager Robert Sauceda.Sauceda said the project ran smoothly in partnership with TCU.“When we first started this project almost two years ago, we coordinated with TCU and let them know that we were going to start in January after football season, and we were going to continue to work until the first football game,” Sauceda said. “That was our goal.”That goal made resident Janet Herald‘s drive down Bellaire Drive South in late August a pleasant one.Photo of Janet Herald, courtesy of Janet Herald.“It had to be cleared up before the first football game because so much traffic comes up that way up from Hulen to get to the stadium,” Herald said. “I mean, it was an absolute necessity.”Sauceda said extra manpower and better weather conditions sped up the process.However, some Overton Park residents said they were surprised the construction on Overton Park Drive East was not completed before school started in the fall.Sauceda said this was intentional: construction on Overton Park Drive East was farther away from Tanglewood Elementary than the previous construction on the west side of Overton.“Because we’re on the opposite road, not in front of the Tanglewood Elementary or close to TCU…we’re able to do it during school days,” Sauceda said.He also said the construction contractor took precautions on neighborhood streets, covering holes overnight and not allowing residents too close to the dangerous work environment.These blueprints from the Fort Worth Water Department outline which streets required water and wastewater line installations at the outset of this project.Overton Park Drive East’s sanitary sewer line replacement–painted orange for clarity–is the only remaining portion of the project. Blueprints were provided by the Fort Worth Water Department.These water infrastructure improvements are needed because of a history of breaks on the lines and a demand for more water flow.

A Call to Congressional Candidates!

first_imgA Call to Congressional Candidates!by Gail Riecken, CCO State House EditorMichael Leppert in his StatehouseFile article on Sixth District US Congress candidate Greg Pence slams Mr. Pence for not being up for his race. Among the issues Leppert cites is Pence’s total reliance on the name of his famous brother.http://thestatehousefile.com/commentary-name-greg-pence-not-ballot/35523/Name recognition is a big asset, but really, shouldn’t it be for something more than your family.At the same time, I read Leppert’s article, I also read an article how President Trump is promising Michiganders he’ll prioritize needed waterway improvements on the St. Lawrence Seaway.https://www.maritime-executive.com/article/trump-wants-to-fix-pinch-point-for-great-lakes-shipping#gs.SRSG8X0So, I say, if any Congressional or State legislative candidate, for that matter, wants to do something really big, something that gains him/her “kitchen table” name recognition, that person should advocate with the President and, yes, the Vice-President, that southern Indiana and the Ohio River locks and dams need just as much attention as the St Lawrence Seaway.For years the Corps of Engineers has been trying to get more money for the dams on the Ohio River. (One construction project, that some feel was poorly designed, has sucked up all the monies and seems to stall the argument for improvements on other locks and dams.) What has remained is a policy of basic maintenance, only, for the other dams.To quote the Corps of Engineers, “ Within five years, over half of the current navigation structures will be past their structural design life.” The Corps considers “the modernization of the Ohio River system a top local, regional, national priority”.http://www.lrd.usace.army.mil/Missions/Civil-Works/Navigation/Ohio-River/As a matter of fact, I don’t see how one can prioritize the Great Lakes and the St Lawrence Seaway over the Ohio River.  The Ohio River carries over 220 million tons of freight (year 2010). Both the Seaway and Ohio are integral parts of the economic health of our country.http://midamericafreight.org/rfs/network-inventory/waterways/top-commodities-by-waterway/How could candidates do something worthwhile to earn name recognition?  Pledge support and advocacy for improvements along with one or more of the compacts of the 6 states bordering the Ohio River; visit the Corps and solicit their help and advocacy; travel to the state legislator and national legislator conferences and lobby targeted Electeds,(Canada used to be active for the St Lawrence Seaway at these conferences and probably still is); and visit Governor Holcomb and secure his active support.Backing a candidate for office should be more about the actions that a candidate takes to benefit our area and less about who his/her brother or father is or the fact the candidate looks good in public. Those attributes haven’t won us a seat at the allocation table for what we need on Ohio. How about asking a candidate to take a stand and tell us what he/she will do for southern Indiana and the Ohio River.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Call Congress, oppose gun loopholes

first_imgDear Editor:Over the coming weeks, PACs, special interest groups, and members of Congress will be pushing two innocuously named pieces of legislation from their agenda: HR 2406, Concealed Carry Reciprocity (CCR), and HR 38, the SHARE Act. These bills would maintain loopholes that circumvent the background checks required to buy silencers, and allow people to publicly carry concealed weapons in any state, as long as their home states’ laws would allow it.Many will say that to discuss gun safety legislation right now is opportunist, given the massacre in Las Vegas. We disagree. The horrific truth is that we’ve seen this before. We’ve seen this eight times this year alone. Innocent people have been killed in one of the grisliest ways imaginable, and “thoughts and prayers” are not enough. But when it comes time to do something concrete, to make sure Americans can go to concerts, and movies, and kids can go to school, the gun lobby says that would be taking advantage of the situation. We can discuss these issues academically and ideologically, but the fact is Americans are dying.It is our right and our patriotic duty to those killed and those we can still save to make sure our laws don’t empower people who put Americans in their crosshairs. Please, call your members of Congress and ask them to vote “No” on the upcoming silencer and CCR legislation. We can and will do better.

Seaweed bread provides satiation benefits

first_imgIt has been revealed that seaweed has appetite-supressing qualities after a university student incorporated it as an ingredient in a loaf of bread.Anna Hall, who is studying MSc Nutrition with Public Health Management, has won an Alpro Foundation Award for Masters in the UK for her thesis about food and nutrition and its impact on health, the environment or the economy.She said the fortified bread was much higher in fibre than standard bread and therefore helped people feel full after eating fewer calories.“Results from this study suggest that seaweed presents an attractive option for food manufacturers, particularly in the bakery sector, aiming to maximise the health-giving potential of their dietary fibre-rich products,” she explained.Hall, who is currently working with Sheffield Hallam University’s Food and Nutrition Group alongside her studies, conducted two trials with the bread. The first, on 79 sensory panellists, indicated that seaweed (Ascophyllum nodosum) can be incorporated into a staple food, such as bread, with no deterioration in consumer acceptability.She also looked at whether the bread could affect people’s appetites by testing it on a number of healthy but overweight men aged 18 to 65.A breakfast of scrambled eggs on toast was given to the men, comparing the seaweed-containing bread to standard wholemeal bread.Participants reported they felt fuller and less hungry after seaweed-enriched bread, and that they consumed significantly less energy both at lunchtime and over the course of that day.Hall will collect her award at the National Nutrition and Health Conference at the Olympia Conference Centre in London today (Friday 26 November).last_img read more
