TCU’s innovative offense led them to victory against West Virginia

first_imgShelby Kitson Facebook Shelby Kitsonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shelby-kitson/ ReddIt printThe Horned Frogs’ creativity on offense gave them the advantage during TCU’s 31-24 victory over West Virginia Saturday, and now the Horned Frogs are the last undefeated team in the Big 12.TCU made some game-changing plays on offense like the throwback to quarterback, Kenny Hill, and the “WildFrog,” both plays earning them touchdowns.TCU head coach Gary Patterson said his offense had to run these plays because West Virginia’s defense is quick to the ball.“We had the play set up and called; we saw they’re like us on defense,” Patterson said. “We had to throw back into the quarterback because they’re very aggressive.”In the third quarter, Hill handed the ball off to wide receiver, KaVontae Turpin, and naturally Hill started to jog to the side. Turpin drew the defender’s attention and then threw the ball back to Hill, who was wide open. Hill spun off one West Virginia defender and ran the ball 48 yards for a touchdown. TCU took the lead 24-17 after the trick play.Hill said he had been practicing the play all week and wanted to get a receiving touchdown.“I said come to me, if y’all throw this to me, I’m gonna score,” Hill said. “I’m not going to let anyone tackle me on this, but it just worked out we got running touchdowns, receiving, throwing and overall it was a great team effort.”TCU running back Kyle Hicks said Hill was great during the game.“Kenny, he balled out today and I was actually happy for him,” Hicks said. “He was always talking in practice how he wants to get a receiving touchdown so I’m glad he finally got it.”Hill said the coaches trusted him with the ball today, which really helped his confidence.“It means a lot and gives me a lot of confidence. We try to get it done and we did today,” Hill said.The momentum-shifting play did not stop the Frogs from making unconventional plays. TCU ran the “Wildfrog” play twice which helped them win the game.In the beginning of the second quarter, TCU trailed 3-0 until running back Sewo Olonilua took the snap and ran the ball two yards for a touchdown. This put the Horned Frogs on top 7-0.TCU also ran the “Wildfrog” in the fourth quarter on fourth down with one yard to gain. TCU wide receiver Jalen Reagor rushed for seven yards to the West Virginia 34 on a wide receiver jet sweep, resulting a TCU 1st down. At the end of the drive, TCU scored another touchdown and won the game, 31 to 24.Hill said he wanted to give Reagor more opportunities to make some plays.“We came out there and we were like anything you can run by him, just give him a chance, drawback, trust him and just let it go, and he made a play that was big time for us, big time,” Hill said.The Horned Frogs play next week at Kansas State, and Hicks said they only have one job entering their showdown in Manhattan.“Our job is to come out here on Saturdays and just compete and come out with a victory,” Hicks said. “Our next goal is six and zero.”  SGA helps relieve student stress during finals week Linkedin Reagor’s Hail Mary catch gives TCU a spark against SMU Shelby Kitsonhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/shelby-kitson/ Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Facebook TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Twittercenter_img TCU’s IFC gives out free hot shaves to kick-off Movember ReddIt Shelby Kitson is a senior journalism student at Texas Christian University.

TV Review: ‘Big Mouth’ returns better than ever

first_imgMichelle Carterhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/michelle-carter/ The Class of 1969 marks 50 years Facebook Editorial: Students returned to campus. Cases surged Michelle Carter Michelle Carter, a senior of the class of 2019, is a journalism major from Santiago, Chile. She’s a film and TV junkie, and when she’s not reporting, you can find her bingeing the latest on Netflix or catching up on her favorite podcasts. Linkedin Twitter print“Big Mouth” returns to Netflix with a second season full of hilarity as the returning group of confused middle schoolers continue to navigate their way through puberty.Nick (voiced by Nick Kroll) and Andrew (John Mulaney) are still deer in headlights when it comes to talking to girls, figuring out the physical changes to their bodies, sexuality and dealing with all the emotions that these changes bring. Their friends Jessi (Jessi Klein), Missy (Jenny Slate) and Jay (Jason Mantzoukas) also experience similar issues on their own.Accompanying the young teens are their respective Hormone Monsters: Maury (Nick Kroll) for the boys and Connie (Maya Rudolph) for the girls, who constantly veer them in the wrong direction while they discover puberty and sexuality together. What’s hilarious is that they’re all self-aware enough to realize when they’ve messed up, but hormones and feelings are no impediment to make the same mistakes again and again.(Trailer courtesy of IMDb.)This season tackles new storylines: Jessi deals with her parents’ divorce, an episode about all the services Planned Parenthood provides shown through skits and Coach Steve (also voiced by Nick Kroll) going through some changes of his own.The show also introduces the Shame Wizard (voiced by David Thewlis) who channels the same creepiness he exuded as V.M. Varga in the third season of “Fargo”. The Shame Wizard takes the preteens on a judgmental, introspective ride, making everyone aware of the shame surrounding any and every action they take.The raunchy, vulgar and hilarious nature of the show gives traditional animation a run for its money. The writing is incredible as you can see every feeling explored, every thought declared out loud, every nuance covered; there’s no room for filtering or sugarcoating puberty. These characters are tackling something so familiar to many of us. To an extent, vulgarity notwithstanding, we can all relate to the kids’ struggles, as probably some of us have had the same thoughts run through our heads.“Big Mouth” is one of the better animated comedies out there. Its incredible voice cast adds layers to the nuance these kids feel with everything they do, especially through Maya Rudolph’s sultry-yet-sensitive Hormone Monstress, and 25-minute episodes make it bingeable in one sitting.VerdictI was so excited for this season and it did not disappoint. I’m a fan of Nick Kroll, and the talent he displays in providing voices for a wide range of characters is incredible.

Coronavirus live updates: India records world’s highest increase in new COVID-19 cases

first_imgMyriam Borzee/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 940,000 people worldwide.Over 29.8 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The criteria for diagnosis — through clinical means or a lab test — has varied from country-to-country. Still, the actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some national governments are hiding or downplaying the scope of their outbreaks.Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the virus has rapidly spread to every continent except Antarctica.The United States is the worst-affected country, with more than 6.6 million diagnosed cases and at least 196,802 deaths.California has the most cases of any U.S. state, with more than 771,000 people diagnosed, according to Johns Hopkins data. California is followed by Texas and Florida, with over 696,000 cases and over 671,000 cases, respectively.Nearly 170 vaccine candidates for COVID-19 are being tracked by the World Health Organization, at least six of which are in crucial phase three trials.Here’s how the news is developing Thursday. All times Eastern:Sep 17, 9:58 am150 million more children in poverty due to COVID-19, report saysThe coronavirus crisis has pushed 150 million more children into poverty, according to an analysis published Wednesday night by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the U.K.-based charity Save the Children.Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, the number of children living in deprivation in low- and middle-income countries has increased by 15% to approximately 1.2 billion. The multidimensional poverty analysis used data on access to education, health care, housing, nutrition, sanitation and water from more than 70 countries.Although the report already paints a dire picture, UNICEF warned the situation will likely worsen in the coming months.“COVID-19 and the lockdown measures imposed to prevent its spread have pushed millions of children deeper into poverty,” UNICEF executive director Henrietta Fore said in a statement Wednesday. “Families on the cusp of escaping poverty have been pulled back in, while others are experiencing levels of deprivation they have never seen before. Most concerningly, we are closer to the beginning of this crisis than its end.”The analysis noted that not only are more children across the globe experiencing poverty than before, but the poorest children are getting poorer as well.UNICEF and Save the Children said they are both committed to continue to monitor the situation while working with governments and civil society to confront it.“This pandemic has already caused the biggest global education emergency in history, and the increase in poverty will make it very hard for the most vulnerable children and their families to make up for the loss,” Save the Children International CEO Inger Ashing said in a statement Wednesday. “Children who lose out on education are more likely to be forced into child labour or early marriage and be trapped in a cycle of poverty for years to come. We cannot afford to let a whole generation of children become victims of this pandemic. National governments and the international community must step up to soften the blow.”ABC News’ Dragana Jovanovic contributed to this report.Sep 17, 9:24 am860,000 Americans filed jobless claims last weekSome 860,000 Americans lost their jobs and filed for unemployment insurance last week, the U.S. Department of Labor said Thursday.The latest tally shows that the nationwide number of new jobless claims have dropped significantly since peaking at 6.9 million in the last week of March. Still, the figure shatters the pre-pandemic weekly record set in 1982 of 695,000.More than 29 million people across the country are currently receiving unemployment benefits under state and federal programs, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.Sep 17, 7:50 amCOVID-19 outbreaks hit French universitiesDozens of university campuses in major cities across France are reporting COVID-19 outbreaks, according to various local media outlets.The affected cities reportedly include Lyon, Marseille, Montpellier, Rennes and Toulouse.In a recent interview with French newspaper Ouest-France, the country’s minister of higher education, Frederique Vidal, said the clusters of cases emerging on university campuses are “mostly linked to private gatherings,” such as student parties. Still, Vidal said she wants to maintain in-person classes “because it is important that teachers and students meet,” particularly first-year students “who need benchmarks.”French student unions, on the other hand, have laid the blame on overcrowded lecture halls.Since the start of the academic year, at least 81 schools across France have been closed and 2,100 classes have been cancelled due to COVID-19.“We have seen around 1,200 new COVID cases among school pupils this week,” France’s minister of national education, Jean-Michel Blanquer, told reporters Wednesday. “Classes are closed as soon as there are three positive cases.”Sep 17, 6:40 am2-month-old baby dies from COVID-19 in MichiganA 2-month-old baby in Michigan has died from COVID-19.Michigan’s chief medical executive, Dr. Joneigh Khaldun, announced the infant’s death during a press conference Wednesday, while discussing how children are not spared from the novel coronavirus.“I was so saddened to hear this news,” Khaldun said. “My condolences go out to their parents and family.”Nearly 800 children across the United States have been diagnosed with Multisystem Inflammatory Syndrome in Children (MIS-C), a new pediatric disease associated with COVID-19 that can cause multiple organs to fail, according to Khaldun.“Studies show that while children are less likely to get severely ill from COVID-19, they still can and they can also pass it on to others,” Khaldun said, while urging people to wear masks, wash their hands and maintain social distancing.“COVID-19 is not something to be taken lightly,” she added.Twenty children under the age of 1 have died of COVID-19 nationwide as of Sept. 12, according to the latest data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Sep 17, 5:30 amUS sees nearly 17% jump in coronavirus-related deathsAn internal memo from the Federal Emergency Management Agency obtained by ABC News on Wednesday night showed that the current national trend in new cases is only slightly down while the trend in new deaths is way up.There were 261,204 new cases of COVID-19 confirmed in the United States during the period of Sept. 9-15, a 0.7% decrease from the previous week. Meanwhile, 5,906 coronavirus-related deaths were recorded during that same period, a 16.6% increase compared with the seven days prior, according to the FEMA memo.The national positivity rate for COVID-19 tests currently stands at 4.4%, a 0.1% decrease over the past week, according to the memo.Sep 17, 4:48 amUS reports nearly 37,000 new cases, just under 1,000 deathsThere were 36,782 new cases of COVID-19 identified in the United States on Wednesday, according to a real-time count kept by Johns Hopkins University.Wednesday’s tally is far below the country’s record set on July 16, when there were 77,255 new cases in a 24-hour-reporting period.An additional 977 coronavirus-related fatalities were also recorded Wednesday, down from a peak of 2,666 new fatalities reported on April 17.A total of 6,630,892 people in the United States have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic began, and at least 196,802 of them have died, according to Johns Hopkins. The cases include people from all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C. and other U.S. territories as well as repatriated citizens.By May 20, all U.S. states had begun lifting stay-at-home orders and other restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. The day-to-day increase in the country’s cases then hovered around 20,000 for a couple of weeks before shooting back up and crossing 70,000 for the first time in mid-July. The daily tally of new cases has gradually come down since then.Sep 17, 4:27 amIndia records world’s highest increase in new casesIndia confirmed 97,894 new cases of COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, marking the highest single-day increase in infections worldwide since the coronavirus pandemic began.An additional 1,132 coronavirus-related fatalities were also recorded. The country’s cumulative total now stands at 5,118,253 cases and 83,198 deaths, according to the latest data from the Indian Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.India has the second-highest tally of COVID-19 cases in the world and the third-highest death toll in the coronavirus pandemic, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University. The relatively low death toll in a vast county of 1.3 billion people is raising questions about how it’s counting coronavirus fatalities.India has reported more than one million cases this month alone. Based on the current rate of infection, India is expected within weeks to become the pandemic’s worst-hit nation, surpassing the United States, where more than 6.6 million people have been diagnosed with COVID-19.India’s health ministry has attributed the surge in infections to increased testing. The country is conducting more than one million COVID-19 tests per day.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

PG&E plans to sell Pleasant Creek natural gas storage field in US

first_imgPG&E said that the sale of Pleasant Creek field could help ratepayers avoid decommissioning and remediation costs PG&E seeks buyers for its Pleasant Creek natural gas storage field. (Credit: Terry McGraw from Pixabay) Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) is planning to sell its Pleasant Creek natural gas storage field, located in Yolo County, California in the US.Located partly within the city of Winters and partly in unincorporated Yolo County, the Pleasant Creek storage field was operated by a previous owner from 1948 to 1958 as a natural gas production field.The Pleasant Creek field, which is the smallest of four underground natural gas storage fields owned by PG&E, has a natural gas inventory capacity of 2.3 billion cubic feet (Bcf).PG&E said that the sale of Pleasant Creek field could help ratepayers avoid decommissioning and remediation costs.Upon acquiring in 1958, PG&E started operating it as a natural gas storage field in 1960.In a press statement, PG&E said: “Several factors led PG&E to a determination that the Pleasant Creek field is no longer a necessary asset for providing safe, reliable natural gas service to customers, including PG&E’s assessment of future gas demand and the existence of ample storage capacity at PG&E’s other gas storage fields.”The company proposed a reliability-focused storage service strategy in its 2019 Gas Transmission and Storage (GT&S) Rate Case at the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC).The proposal includes the sale or decommissioning of the Pleasant Creek field.The Pleasant Creek storage field comprises approximately 400 acres of land, six injection and withdrawal wells in addition to compression and processing facilities. It also includes pipeline infrastructure designed to connect the field to PG&E-operated gas transmission system.The company added: “The proposed sale is not related to bankruptcy, from which PG&E emerged this past July.”last_img read more
