Video: cello ensemble closes out semester with winter concert

first_imgKelsey Ritchiehttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kelsey-ritchie/ ReddIt Linkedin Fort Worth’s first community fridge program helps serve vulnerable neighborhoods Kelsey Ritchie The TCU Cello Ensemble brought the semester to a harmonized end on Dec. 11. Twelve cellists, a mixture of both graduate and undergraduate students, performed pieces ranging from Mozart to Rossini at a free concert in Pepsico Recital Hall.The ensemble provides cellists with an opportunity to showcase and sharpen their talents. Students must audition prior to the semester and be willing to dedicate a considerable amount of time to practicing individually and rehearsing with the group.This semester, Ignancy Gaydamovich, a TCU alum and a guest director, directed the ensemble. Gaydamovich said he has enjoyed his experience with the ensemble.“Cello ensemble is very specific,” Gaydamovich said. “It’s a cross between chamber music and orchestral playing so they get to experience both things at the same time.”Along with the uniqueness of the technicalities of the ensemble, graduate assistant McCaryn Bourgeois said she believes the camaraderie amongst group members is equally as unique.“I think our studio is really special because it is very much like a family,” Bourgeois said. “We do rehearsals during the day, but then at night we do things like go shopping. I think it is really special that way because it makes us play better together.”Graduate assistant Liqian Zhao, a foreign exchange student from China who has been studying cello in the United States for the last two years, said the ensemble allowed her to experience something new while continuing to improve her skills on an instrument she has grown up playing.“I picked cello because my father taught cello,” Zhao said. “I’ve played since I was five, and I realize now I can’t live without cello. I need water, and the cello is the same thing with water.First year student Lexi Cole said the cello ensemble allows her to stay in touch with her musical side.“It just brings out emotions that I don’t get to bring out in other areas of my life,” Cole said. “It’s just something really fun for me and the people are great.”Gaydamovich said he felt that the concert was an example of all that the TCU School of Music has to offer to the campus community.“The students and faculty here are amazing,” Gaydamovich said. “It’s also a school with a very high level of playing, especially in the cello studio. The entire campus— actually, the entire country— should know more about this school.”For more information on upcoming concerts, visit music.tcu.edu.

He was fresh off a Super Bowl win and had just signed a three-year contract to continue as a long snapper for the Seattle Seahawks. Just one year later that all changed. In March of 2016 Gresham got the call from the general manager of the Seahawks telling him he had been cut, his career in the NFL was over. He wrote on his blog calling the day, “absolutely the worst break-up ever.” “Everything I had known for the last six years had happened in Seattle,” Gresham wrote. “I mean, I won a freakin’ Super Bowl with the men on the other end of this empty phone call. All I wanted to do was crawl into a hole and not feel what I was feeling.” Two more months after that and Gresham had found something new to focus on, writing about his experiences and struggles in his first book, “Becoming: Loving the Process to Wholeness.” Set to be released Oct. 3, “Becoming” tells Gresham’s story of learning the importance of his own self-worth and not to solely measure himself on his success or failures. “If you live for people’s approval you will die over their criticism,” Gresham said. “Having that type of mindset makes us very, very fragile. I had to come to a place of who am I really? I’m not what I do.” Gresham said his faith played a large role in his journey of self-discovery and identity. “In those challenging moments you realize what’s in you,” Gresham said. “Not because God is trying to show us how bad we are. He’s trying to bring things to the surface because he’s trying to grow us.”It wasn’t an easy path for Gresham, who writes in his book about the worry and uncertainty he often felt over his identity – even as far back as with his freshman year homecoming dance date. However, it was only through these trials that Gresham said he was able to find himself. “It’s only through the fires that that stuff comes out,” Gresham said. “It’s only in those painful moments do we get refined in ways that we otherwise never would have had.” While many of those trials were emotional, sometimes they also came in the form of a TCU business school test, which Gresham faced when he was an entrepreneurial management major. “I was taking financial accounting up until three in the morning dying to get a C on this test,” Gresham said. “I’ve never worked so hard for a C in my life. I’m so proud of that C.” His hard work didn’t go unnoticed by his professors. Dr. Bill Moncrief, the Charles F. and Alann P. Bedford Professor of International Marketing, said Gresham was a “very good student” who showed great time management as a Neeley Associate, helping to put on events for the college, and as football player. “He did a good job of balancing the two,” Moncrief said. “Always being there for the football but he was always there when I needed him.” Moncrief said that he wasn’t surprised that Gresham ended up writing a book and is excited about it. “He’ll do a good job for the book,” Moncrief said. “He’s always had a little bit of a marketing flair.” As part of that marketing Gresham will be back in Fort Worth Oct. 7 before the West Virginia football game to sign copies of his book and meet with people on journeys of their own self-discovery. “I’m hoping to start a conversation of where does your value actually come from and what does it mean to be whole in every area of your life,” Gresham said. “I define wholeness as giving up hope for a better past, relinquishing control for a perfect future and choosing joy and courage right where my feet are. If you can have a mindset like that, you’re going to be pretty unstoppable.” Facebook Elizabeth Campbellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-campbell/ Elizabeth Campbellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-campbell/last_img read more

Defense has been key during Horned Frogs’ win streak

Moore is averaging 7.3 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game this season.Junior Jordan Moore blocks a Texas player’s shot.Photo Courtesy: GoFrogs.com“We focus a lot on defense in practice, and I feel like that helps us a lot in games,” Moore said.TCU head coach Raegan Pebley attributed the team’s defensive improvement to their offseason focus on physicality.“Overall since last season we’ve worked really hard with our strength coach on just becoming a stronger and more explosive team,” Pebley said.Along with Moore, the team’s roster is filled with long and athletic defenders that can defend a variety of positions at an above-average level. Sophomores Kianna Ray, Jayde Woods, and Adeola Akomolafe along with junior Dakota Vann all provide a defensive flexibility that has been suffocating opponents.Over the course of TCU’s win streak, no team has shot higher than 45 percent from the field against the Horned Frogs and two, Iowa State and Oklahoma, failed to eclipse 40.Pebley also spoke about the competitive spirit the team brings to practice.“In our offseason, in our summer with the practices we had in Australia, just continuing to bring a more competitive personality to our practices, that’s allowed us to become a more physical team,” she said.Pebley said the team rarely calls fouls during practices to help build an extra layer of physical and mental toughness.The team will look to continue their tough defensive play when they take on the No. 8 Texas Longhorns this Saturday in Austin at noon. The team defeated then-No.7 ranked Texas 79-77 in Fort Worth last month. Benton McDonald is a senior journalism and political science double major from Austin, Texas.

The fine sets a worrying precedent that could open the way to an escalation in censorship.Echo of Moscow was fined 20,000 roubles (250 euros) for “obscene language” although it did not post the offending swearwords. The words were uttered in a YouTube video to which a link was included in former presidential candidate Ksenya Sobchak’s blog, which is hosted on the site.The radio station’s editor-in-chief, Vitali Ruvinsky, was also convicted and was fined 5,000 roubles (65 euros).“This conviction takes harassment of the Russian media to a new level of absurdity,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “Holding a media outlet responsible for content for which it has absolutely nothing to do opens the way to an infinity of abuses.”Many prominent public figures keep a blog on the Echo of Moscow site. In the offending post, Sobchak referred to the insults she received from a passer-by during his campaign for the March 2018 presidential election. “I was not offended,” she wrote. “I know that [this person did not represent] the Chechen people.”The 40-minute video to which she posted a link followed her as she walked though the streets of the Chechen capital, Grozny, and met residents. A 2013 law banning the use of swearwords in the media was used as grounds for a complaint by federal communications regulator, Roskomnadzor.

Banned magazine back on sale amid tension about media freedom

first_img Togo court upholds “baseless and disproportionate” newspaper closures News TogoAfrica Reporters Without Borders and Avocats Sans Frontières (Lawyers Without Borders) are delighted that the regional bimonthly Tribune d’Afrique will be back on sale in Togo on 29 August for the first time since a Lomé court banned its distribution and sale a year ago in a libel case brought by Mey Gnassingbé, the president’s half-brother and a member of the president’s office.The resumption of distribution in Togo is the result of a 14 July decision by a Lomé appeal court reducing the damages that Tribune d’Afrique is supposed to pay from 60 million CFA francs (90,000 euros) to 10 million CFA francs (15,000) euros and limiting the distribution ban to a period of three months (which expired last November). Reporters Without Borders and Avocats Sans Frontières have been providing the magazine with legal and moral support ever since the president’s half-brother filed his lawsuit. Based in Benin, Tribune d’Afrique is normally sold in seven of the eight countries that make up the West African Economic and Monetary Union (WAEMU).The magazine’s lawyer, Jil-Benoît Kossi Afangbedji, who was engaged by Avocats Sans Frontières, said he planned to take the case to Togo’s highest appeal court with the aim of getting the entire damages award overturned.More information about Mey Gnassingbé’s lawsuit .Tribune d’Afrique’s reappearance in Togo comes at a time when the state of media freedom in Togo is the subject of some dispute. Several hundred people took part in a 5 km march through Lomé on 7 August brandishing placards calling for the preservation of media freedom and the resignation of the head of the National Intelligence Agency (ANR), which is suspected of being behind death threats against some journalists.The march was organized by SOS Journalist in Danger, a local NGO. The Union of Togo Independent Journalists (UJIT), the Togolese Media Monitoring Centre (OTM) and the National Council of Press Owners (CONAPP) did not support the march.L’Indépendant Express, a privately-owned weekly, is meanwhile being sued by Julie Béguédou, the head of the rice-important company Elisée Cotrane, over an article published on 16 August accusing her of planning to put 190,000 bags of contaminated rice on sale in Togo.

According to the previous report, for May 2019, home prices rose 3.4%, down from 3.5% growth the prior month.“Growth in home prices, as measured by the Case-Shiller HPI, began to stabilize in May. The more than 100 basis point decrease in mortgage rates since November has revived home sales and given buyers additional purchasing power in the market,” said Tian Liu, Chief Economist at Genworth Mortgage Insurance. “That extra purchasing power is beginning to show up in home prices.”The 10-city composite annual increase came in at 2.2%, which is a slight decrease from 2.3% in the previous month.“Despite the stabilization, home price growth has slowed from over 6% in early 2018 to less than 3% in May,” Liu said. “That slowdown has made homes less attractive as an investment, especially for investors with a shorter time horizon, even though the cost of financing has decreased. This is one factor contributing to the slower than expected rebound in home sales this year.”Las Vegas led the nation with a 6.4% year-over-year price increase, and was followed by Phoenix’s 5.7% increase. CoreLogic states that seven of the 20 cities in the composite reported higher price increases in the year ending May 2019 than the year ending April 2019.Danielle Hale, Chief Economist for realtor.com, added the slowing of growth has stabilized as lower mortgage rates have “boosted home-buyer purchasing power.”While stating it is promising to see price growth in the fastest growing markets, Hale said the number of markets seeing growth was seven in May compared to nine in April. Also, the first time Seattle, Washington, posted a decline, although slight, at 1.2%.“While increased availability of homes is driving the current slowdown in price growth, looking forward, if mortgage rates remain near recent lows, we could see prices pick back up as a result of improved affordability as well as the possibility of more limited inventory availability,” Hale said.Here’s what else is happening in the Week Ahead:FHFA House Price Index (Aug. 27)NAR Pending Home Sales Index (Aug. 29) Case-Shiller Home Prices Rates 2019-08-23 Seth Welborn Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share Save Tagged with: Case-Shiller Home Prices Rates Related Articleslast_img read more
