TCU recruiting ‘outside of the box’

TCU won 94-92.

He inherited a Big 12 Conference program, but with a record that didn’t attract top talent.Dixon and his staff developed a two-pronged recruiting strategy: focus on Texas, especially the metroplex, and look outside the box, said assistant head coach David Patrick. In this case, instead of trying to compete nationally, the Horned Frogs went global. Patrick is from Australia and that was the first stop. He played professionally for the Canberra Cannons of the National Basketball League from 1999-01 and was named Rookie of the Year in 2000. He’s coached at Saint Mary’s in Moraga, California and LSU.Some of his college recruits have gone on to play in the NBA – most recently his godson Ben Simmons who played under him at LSU. Simmons was the No.1 overall draft pick by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2016 NBA draft.Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons dribbles upcourt during the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Houston Rockets on Monday, Oct. 30, 2017, in Houston. Philadelphia won 115-107. (AP Photo/Eric Christian Smith)The Simmons connection attracted redshirt freshman forward Kouat Noi.“I look up to Ben Simmons a lot,” he said. “I used to remember when we used to play NBA 2K growing up when we were 11 years old and for me to follow the same path he’s following and for DP to be a mentor for me as well, I feel like I’m heading in the right direction now.”New Zealand is also part of the game plan. Big man Angus McWilliam, a 6’11” center from New Zealand who graduates in the spring, has committed. Dixon played professional basketball in New Zealand for the Hawke’s Bay Hawks from 1989-1990. While at Pittsburgh, he recruited Steven Adams – now the starting center for the Oklahoma City Thunder – from New Zealand.Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams (12) dunks over Boston Celtics center Aron Baynes (46) in the first quarter of an NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City on Friday, Nov. 3, 2017. (AP Photo/Sue Ogrocki)Patrick said the lifestyle in DFW is also compatible to that of the players they target from Australia. “I think what’s unique about Dallas-Fort Worth is it’s similar: It’s a big city with people who are easy to get along with because it’s not an east coast city or west coast city where it’s going 100 miles an hour.”Accessibility is also key.  “We have direct flights to Melbourne and direct flights to Sydney, and that makes it easier when you’re traveling and your parents can come on a direct flight to see you play,” Patrick said. But in the end, it’s the investment in TCU basketball that has made Fort Worth a basketball destination.“When you’re pitching TCU and a great institution, Power Five school in the Big 12, you get to play for a great coach in Jamie Dixon that has a resume that speaks for itself, it’s an easy sell,” Patrick said. “Now you have these brand new facilities that are available to them, so it’s an easy sell to be honest.”With that being said, the Horned Frogs have become an international team as a third of the roster was born outside of the United States: senior forward Vladimir Brodziansky hails from Slovakia, freshman forward Lat Mayen and Noi are Australians, senior forward Ahmed Hamdy is from Egypt and freshman center Kevin Samuel comes from Barbuda, an island in the Caribbean. “I think the international pitch is a great and easy sell for us,” Patrick said.

TV station illegally holds five of its journalists for 60 hours

Two of them, Verónica Lazzaro and Carina Alvarez, had to be hospitalised.“A labour dispute should be resolved by dialogue and negotiation, not by such brutal methods,” the press freedom organisation said. “We condemn the behaviour of Canal 9’s management, we voice our solidarity with the journalists who were illegally detained and we call on the station’s owner to provide an explanation.”The five journalists, all Canal 9 staff members, were initially prevented from entered the TV station’s headquarters by security personnel on 7 January because they were protesting against the dismissal of five fellow employees.After forcing their way into they building, the journalists were held their against their will for the next 60 hours. The station’s management cut off water, electricity and air-conditioning although there was a heat wave in Buenos Aires. The detained journalists were also denied access to toilets. Two of them, Lazzaro and Alvarez, finally had to be rushed to hospital.Canal 9’s management has been at odds with its staff since the station was acquired in January 2007 by a US businessman of Mexican origin, Remigio González González. The management wants to shed 200 posts. The staff say they were never notified they were being let go. According to the employees, the new management has reacted to staff discontent with disciplinary measures and unannounced dismissals, while some journalists have even been placed under video surveillance. Tomás Eliaschev, the editor of perfil.com, a news website that is part of the Perfil press group, was attacked and badly beaten on 13 September 2007 in a dispute between the Perfil group’s management and the Buenos Aires Press Workers Union (UTPBA).

Celebrate the Rest of Spring Italian Style with Celestino Ristorante’s New Black Truffle Menu!

first_imgThough it’s tempting to hop on a plane headed east to get an authentic taste of Italy in the spring, it’s not always schedule-friendly or cost effective. Lucky for us, Pasadena eatery Celestino Ristorante, part of the famed Drago Family restaurant group, is offering a brand new menu highlighting the flavors of the season on their new spring Black Truffle menu with a collection of authentic, old-world eats!Start your flavor journey with Calogero’s Antipasti offerings, beginning with a Mushroom Soup with Black Truffle, or the Soft Polenta with Mushroom in Fontina Cheese and Shaved Black Truffle Sauce.

Mixed vegetables are also perfectly highlighted in the Tagliatella Primaverille, with flat wide pasta, mixed vegetables and shaved truffle.One of the main dishes in the Carne e Pesce section that Calogero feels perfectly represents spring, and compliments the Black Summer Truffles at Celestino is the Filet of Dover Sole poached with julienne Vegetables and Summer Truffles. But these days, Drago is most in love with the Veal Scaloppini with Prosciutto, Sage, Provolone Cheese and Truffle.“It’s a classic Italian dish,” Drago explains. “It’s a very fine piece of veal that receives a burst of flavor from ingredients like tomatoes, wine, garlic, capers and oregano, and then is combined with the prosciutto, provolone and Truffle. People like it because it’s simple and delicious.”Rounding out the Dolce section of the menu is the ultimate dessert – Tartufo Ice Cream. The word “Tartufo” means “Truffle” in Italian. “Tartufo” is well known as an ice cream dessert that is also known as “Bomba”. At Celestino, Calogero has paired three fabulous flavors together giving diners a taste of Chocolate, Vanilla and Pistachio to complete their meal.

first_imgGARDAI in Limerick are looking to speak with three males who left the scene of a road traffic collision outside Adare on Sunday afternoon last.Shortly before 2pm on Sunday, a 999 call was made to the emergency services notifying them that a car had rolled over on to its roof following a collision with a ditch on a straight stretch of the road leading towards a nearby hotel.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Upon their arrival, emergency paramedics and firefighters from Limerick city and Rathkeale, found a man lying in the middle of the road with serious head injuries.They believed that the male. aged in his 30s, had been ejected out the back window of the car as a result of the collision.However, three other males who were believed to have been in the car as well, had made off from the scene by running through nearby fields.Gardai who attended the scene also, spoke with the man before he was transferred to University Hospital Limerick.Gardaí at Croom and Newcastle West are investigating the incident and have asked that any members of the public who have any information about the incident, that the contact them on 061 397 240.Separately and earlier on Sunday, the driver of a jeep had a lucky escape when his 4×4 rolled over on to its side after the driver swerved to avoid a dog.The incident happened shortly before 1pm on Sunday when the jeep flipped on its side a hit the steel railings at the junction of Childers Road and John Carew Park link road.Emergency services attended and the male need treatment for minor injuries and shock.

New Year Brings New Homeowner Bill of Rights Requirements

first_img The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Previous: Then vs. Now: Housing Markets That Remain Below Price Peaks Next: In the Near Future, Buyers Could Use Bitcoins to Purchase a Home December 15, 2017 2,303 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Market Studies, News Riddled throughout California’s Homeowner Bill of Rights (HOBR) are the words “repealed” effective “January 1, 2018”. Unfortunately, many loan servicers assume that means the entire HOBR will be repealed and that all they have to worry about going forward is complying with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) loss mitigation rules. Unfortunately, that is not the case.Many sections of HOBR are being replaced by new rules that automatically go into effect January 1, 2018. In many instances, the new provisions are less onerous than their predecessors. But, in some very key areas, the new provisions can cause servicers more problems. The key is to understand what provisions are being changed and how they impact your compliance procedures.For starters, “HOBR II” attempts to remove the distinction between servicers conducting more or less than 175 annual foreclosures. In most respects, all servicers are treated the same going forward.Civil code section 2923.55 will be history in 2018. Going forward, section 2923.5 sets forth the pre-NOD contact requirements for servicers of all sizes. The two statutes are substantially similar, except that the written notice regarding servicemembers and the statement that the borrower may request a copy of the note, deed of trust, assignment, or payment history will no longer be required starting in 2018.Since the provisions are substantially the same, we anticipate that violations of the pre-NOD contact requirements will continue to be a popular allegation in lawsuits and therefore, recommend documenting the pre-notice of default contact and/or due diligence steps with precise details in case you need it later as evidence. Further, please make sure your foreclosure trustees update their compliance declarations to reflect the code change.The provisions in section 2923.6 prohibiting dual tracking will be replaced by the (new) Section 2924.11, which prohibits recording a notice of sale or conducting a foreclosure sale upon receipt of a “complete application for a foreclosure prevention alternative.” Historically, servicers were only required to stay foreclosure proceedings upon receipt of a complete loan modification application. Beginning January 1, 2018, the dual tracking prohibition applies to all applications for all foreclosure prevention alternatives.Another change is that section 2924.11 does not require an appeal period following a written denial. Instead, the denial of a first lien loan modification application shall state with specificity the reasons for the denial and shall include a statement that the borrower may obtain additional documentation supporting the denial decision upon written request to the mortgage servicer. Oddly, the new section 2924.11 does not appear to prohibit recording a notice of default when there is a pending complete foreclosure prevention alternative. However, the CFPB rules do.The old section 2923.6(g) excused servicers from having to review multiple loan modification applications that did not involve a “material change in financial circumstances.” While that provision’s vagueness caused servicers many sleepless nights, at least it afforded some relief.  Unfortunately, that provision is gone at the end of the year and there is no replacement. Therefore, it is possible that servicers must review multiple applications, regardless of whether there is a material change in financial circumstances. That said, if a servicer finds itself in trouble with an issue with multiple applications, there may be an out, but one that requires further discussion.Section 2923.7 does not expire and remains the same as before, requiring a single point of contact, also known as a “SPOC,” to communicate the loss mitigation application process, coordinate documents, notify the borrower of any missing documents, and have access to current information to accurately inform borrower of the current status. Note that this section still only applies to servicers who conduct more than 175 qualifying annual foreclosures.Section 2924.10 will be expiring, which means servicers will no longer be required to provide a written acknowledgment within five business days of receiving loan modification documents. However, the CFPB rules still require an acknowledgment letter.With section 2924(a)(5) expiring, servicers or their foreclosure trustees will no longer have to provide written notice to a borrower when a sale is postponed more than 10 business days.Section 2924.12 still creates a private right of action for a borrower to enforce HOBR; but it will now only apply to material violation of “sections 2923.5, 2923.7, 2924.11, 2924.17.” Like its predecessor, the borrower is only entitled to injunctive relief prior to the Trustee’s Deed Upon Sale recording. But, after it records, the servicer is potentially liable for any actual economic damages resulting from a material violation of the covered sections and, if the court finds that a material violation was “intentional or reckless, or resulted from willful misconduct by a mortgage servicer, mortgagee, trustee, beneficiary, or authorized agent,” the greater of treble actual damages or $50,000. This section also still allows for attorney’s fees for a prevailing borrower.With section 2924.17 remaining in effect, all servicers, regardless of size, must still ensure that before recording or filing a declaration pursuant to section 2923.5, notice of default, notice of sale, assignment of deed of trust, substitution of trustee, or a declaration or affidavit in court relative to a foreclosure proceeding, that it has reviewed competent and reliable evidence to substantiate the borrower’s default and the right to foreclose, including the borrower’s loan status and loan information. However, some of the government enforcement provisions will expire at the end of 2017.Unfortunately, the challenges with handling “complete,” but last-minute, loan modification applications still exist.  The new HOBR sections still do not directly address what happens when a servicer receives a complete loan modification application minutes or hours before a foreclosure sale. In fact, the new HOBR actually complicates matters by extending the dual tracking restriction to all foreclosure prevention alternatives, not just loan modifications. That said, like before, servicers can take steps to address how to deal with these last-minute applications ahead of time; but, it will require a separate discussion.What do all of these changes mean from a litigation perspective? Unfortunately, we anticipate continued litigation over alleged violations of HOBR. In the short term, most lawsuits will implicate the pre-January 1, 2018 HOBR due to when the foreclosure documents were recorded and when the subject loan modification reviews took place. Down the road, litigation could actually increase if servicers do not get ahead of the year-end changes.
