Photo by Heesoo YangAfter losing six of their first seven conference games, TCU volleyball dominated West Virginia on Thursday night, sweeping the Mountaineers in the annual Spike out Cancer match.The Frogs wore pink uniforms to honor and raise awareness for those who have battled with cancer.“There’s these people out there who are fighting abattle that they don’t have any control over,” head coach Jill Kramersaid. “There’s a lot out there that’sbigger than the game going on right in front of you.”The match marked TCU’s first sweep since they defeated Miami 3-0 Sept. 13 in the Add-Ran Cup.The Frogs were electric on offense, producing 48 kills (a season-high for a three set match) on a .248 hitting percentage as a team.Outside hitter Audrey Nalls led the way for TCU with 12 kills, but junior Ashley Waggle was right behind her with 11 of her own. Waggle finished with a hitting clip of .429.“She’s [Waggle] one heck of a player,” setter McKenzie Nichols said. “She has great leadership. She just makes everyone feel so comfortable on the court.”The first set was competitive from the start; the largest lead either team held was four. After struggling to produce much offensively to start conference play, TCU hit .357 as a team to go with 14 kills, overpowering West Virginia in the end for a 25-23 win.Preseason All-Big 12 outside hitter élan McCall set a season-high with four kills on .571 hitting clip in the first set alone. After dealing with an injury to start the year, McCall played mostly on the back row in her seven matches prior to Thursday’s game.The intensity grew in the second set. The Frogs continued to thrive offensively as a team, but the Mountaineers would not go away. West Virginia took a 21-20 lead late, but a strong presence from Afedo Manyang helped TCU take the five of the last six points.“She’s [Manyang] really put the work in,” Kramersaid. “You could see it tonight.”TCU won the second set 25-22 to take a 2-0 lead. Manyang produced five kills and two blocks in the set.The Frogs looked sharp and ready to complete the sweep in the third set; however, the hard-hitting of West Virginia’s outside hitter Katelyn Evans kept the match interesting. The set was tied at 17 as it drew to a close. Evans totaled a game-high 13 kills for theMountaineers in the contest. Then, TCU took off. A 5-0 run put the Frogs up for good, sealing their first sweep of an opponent in almost two months.“It definitely makes us feel really good,” Nichols said. “[It] puts us on the right track for sure.”McCall, Manyang and middle blocker Katie Clark combined for 22 kills and nine blocks in the victory.Nichols finished with a game-high 40 kills, her mostin a three set game this season. Thefirst-year setter also added 10 digs for the fourth double-double of hercareer.“It’s all thanks to my hitters,” Nichols said about her early success this season. “They’ve been really good helping me out and helping me run the offense.”Looking to gain momentum, TCU advances to 2-6 in Big 12 play with the win.The Frogs will stay in Fort Worth for their next action, as they face Iowa State at 7 p.m. on Wednesday at the Rickell to start the second half of conference play.
Pasadena Now announced Thursday it has become the first grant recipient from the newly-formed Pasadena Media Foundation Wednesday.According to the group’s website, the foundation’s mission is “to build a sustainable financial future for Pasadena-area news and information organizations, which are essential for democracy to function, and to promote high-quality local journalism within the community.”Following the grant award announcement, founder Sheryl Turner told Pasadena Now, “Local news nationwide has become a shell of its former self where vibrant local news has been replaced by mega-mergers that do not employ any reporters. Now add COVID-19 to the mix and regional journalism is about to become extinct – with a great cost to our democracy and civic engagement.”Turner said that the Foundation was formed to support local media organizations and explore new business models for their sustainability; to protect freedom of the press, as well as promoting news literacy and connect with audiences through civic engagement and technology.“We hope our organization will be a portal for funders and individuals to support local media,” said Turner. “Our efforts embrace for-profit and nonprofit local news entities alike”Turner continued, “We wish to provide a counter-narrative to the nationwide loss of local media by creating new models and ventures and providing support to existing entities. Our Board’s award to Pasadena Now is the first step of our young nonprofit in helping fill the gap.”Turner said, of awardee Pasadena Now, “(They) do such good work and really gets into the depth of some the issues, whether it’s the school district or the political scene, or the restaurants, whatever is current, (they’re) always on top of it, with good reporting and analysis. We appreciate that.”“We feel there are several (media outlets) in town worthy of help. And this is our first effort. And we hope that other people will think it’s a good idea, too.”Pasadena Media Foundation Board member Bishop Christopher Milton of Holy Assembly Church of God said Wednesday, “The end goal is to build up and help so that (the publication) can employ people to do what you need, arms and legs, what they need to get it done. I believe it could be advantageous to all of us, to the paper, to the community, and then to individual writers and so forth.”According to the foundation’s website, 95 percent of all donations are to be awarded to the specific news organization or local journalism awardee.The Foundation is not associated with Pasadena Media, which is the city of Pasadena’s cable television organization.Tax-deductible donations to the Foundation may be made here.

Ramasubramanian stated that the petitioner Alka Priya has no locus stand in the matter and that the Mumbai Police is already probing the case and must be allowed to do its job. Court suggested the petitioner file a PIL in the Bombay High Court in order to seek appropriate relief if she had anything concrete to show.When the petitioner submitted that the Actor was a “good person” and worked towards public interest, the CJI led bench said that the aspect was unrelated to the prayer at hand.Petitioner: But he had done a lot in public interest. Sent children to NASACJI: “This has nothing to do with whether a person was good or bad”SC junks PIL to transfer #SushantSinghRajpoot case to CBI#CJI led bench says “Let police do its job”It has nothing to do with whether a person was a good person or a bad person. It is also about jurisdiction. Go to Bombay HC if you have anything concrete to show. @itsSSR— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) July 30, 2020 It is pertinent to mention that after Rajput’s untimely death on June 14, the call for a CBI probe into the Actor’s death has been making national headlines. A PIL has been filed by Supreme Court Lawyer Sarthak Nayak before Bombay High Court to hand over the case to an independent probe agency instead of the case being investigated by Mumbai Police.Further to this, Subramanian Swamy had been at the forefront urging for a CBI investigation into the actor’s death.Yesterday, bollywood actress Rhea Chakraborty Wednesday moved the Supreme Court seeking transfer of an FIR from Patna to Mumbai and the stay on the investigation by the Bihar police on the allegations of Sushant Singh Rajput’s father that she abetted suicide of his actor son.The move of Rhea to rush to the top court assumes significance in view of the fact that a four-member probe team of Bihar police is already in Mumbai and may seek to interrogate the actress as the FIR lodged at Patna by Rajput’s father, K K Singh, contained allegations of severe criminal offences such as abetment of suicide and criminal breach of trust under the IPC.The move came, four days after Rajput’s father K K Singh lodged an FIR at Rajiv Nagar police station in Patna against Chakraborty and six others, including her family members, accusing them of abetting the actor’s suicide.Today, the actor’s family moved the Supreme Court, filing a caveat in Chakraborty’s plea for transfer of the probe.Actor #SushantSinghRajpoot’s family moves the SC with Rajput’s father filing a caveat in Rhea Chakraborty’s plea to transfer probe into FIR registered in Patna, to Mumbai. Caveat states, “Let nothing be done in the above-mentioned matter without priory notice to undersigned”.— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) July 30, 2020 Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
