TCU athletes are “SPARK-ing” an interest in Fort Worth area students

first_imgAbortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature One Women, One Mission, Two Campaigns Linkedin Linkedin Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday printCaylin Moore woke up in the middle of the night with an idea.Moore, a junior transfer quarterback at TCU, had the vision to create an organization composed of TCU athletes that would travel around Fort Worth schools and encourage children to reach their dreams.Moore said one of his academic advisors encouraged him during his first semester at TCU to create something that would have a positive impact on both his teammates and the community.“One night, right after the bowl game, the idea of helping the youth and leaving a positive legacy hit me so strongly that I woke up out of my sleep at 3 a.m., and I just put a pen to paper and started writing out the schematics,” said Moore.He called TCU football teammates Aaron Curry and Michael Carroll that night with his idea. The next morning, he contacted numerous other people to get his organization started.The organization’s goal stated in their constitution is to: “Inspire the youth to rise above their circumstances, build bridges to success and ultimately spark a change in their communities.”The constitution also states that the organization has a multifaceted purpose: “We are looking to develop leadership in Student-Athletes at TCU as well as bridge community relations between the athletic program and the surrounding community.”Moore’s story is unique. From homeless to a Fulbright scholar to a janitor to a TCU football player, he now hopes to encourage kids that were in the same situation as him to chase their dreams.“Caylin is one of those guys that has an idea and then he makes it happen,” said sophomore TCU wide receiver Michael Carroll.“As TCU football players, we have such a strong impact on people and the community,” Carroll said. “The young kids now are the future leaders of this world so we decided to use our influence to bring something positive and to spark a change in these kids.”On Jan. 3, 2016, Moore’s idea became a reality. His official student organization is named SPARK: Strong Players Are Reaching Kids.SPARK members speak with local youth (elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and community organizations) about the importance of education, reaching back to the community and staying on a path towards success.SPARK members have already spoken to N.A. Howry Intermediate School, J.D. Hall Learning Center, and Jacquet Middle School in Fort Worth.There are currently twelve members in the program. Moore said most of the group’s members are football players, but SPARK is open to students who are passionate about inspiring the youth to excel in academics, athletics and those who are “interested in positively sparking a change in their community.”The program is also open to students who are looking to further develop their leadership and public speaking skills.Moore said speaking to elementary children has not only influenced the kids, but has strongly affected the TCU athletes.Rocket Ismail, freshman slot receiver, said when it was his opportunity to talk in front of the students he discussed redefining “cool.”“Never in my life—like ever, did I think that I would be able to motivate kids of that age… and it’s all because of Caylin,” said Ismail. “I was nervous the night before and Caylin called me and told me to get ready. He said that I could make a difference to these kids… and I did.”Junior defensive tackle Aaron Curry said when he was growing up in Oklahoma City he was surrounded by drugs and gangs; however, he had good influences in his life that kept him out of danger.“I like SPARK because I can be the positive influence on these kids, that might not have influential people at home,” said Curry. “It makes me feel better helping these kids and giving them the opportunity that I had.”Curry added he had a similar experience with a role model football player when he was growing up.“I remember [Adrian] Peterson from the Oklahoma Sooners coming to talk to our school,” said Curry. “I wanted to be just like him and now I just want to be that light for the kids we talk to.”And Moore said his experiences with SPARK have helped him realize his dream job.“Dream job—not the job that would make the most money, not the job that would bring the most fame—but dream job? That’s easy, it would be coaching football for young kids.” Twitter The 109 The 109 Facebook TCU athletes are “SPARK-ing” an interest in Fort Worth area students ReddIt Facebook The 109 Stories from the polls: Election Day in The109!

Alabama executes Muslim inmate who sued to have imam present

first_imgKuzma/iStock(ATMORE, Ala.) — A Muslim inmate in Alabama who sued the state for not allowing his imam by his side at his death was executed Thursday night.The United States Supreme Court voted Thursday to lift a stay for 42-year-old Domineque Ray, allowing the Alabama Department of Corrections to proceed with his execution that evening. Ray was convicted and sentenced to death for the 1995 rape and murder of 15-year-old Tiffany Harville in Selma, Alabama.“Due to the nature of his crime, the decision of a jury to condemn him to death and because our legal system has worked as designed, Mr. Ray’s sentence was carried out,” Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey said in a statement Thursday night. “Courts at every level have upheld Mr. Ray’s conviction for his senseless act. Accordingly, the laws of this state have been carried out. It is my prayer that, with tonight’s events, the Miss Harville’s family can finally have closure.”Ray had been held at the Holman Correctional Facility in Atmore, Alabama, since he was convicted and sentenced in 1999. He’d been a devout Muslim since at least 2006 and met regularly with his imam, who has provided religious ministry to Muslim inmates like Ray since 2015, according to court documents.On Jan. 23, two weeks before his scheduled execution, Ray met with the prison warden who, apparently for the first time, explained the practices and policies that the Alabama Department of Corrections adheres to during executions. Among other things, the warden told Ray that a Christian chaplain employed by the department would be in the death chamber as a lethal cocktail of drugs is administered. The inmate’s designated witnesses, along with any spiritual adviser other than the prison chaplain, may be seated in a witness room, separated from the execution chamber by a large window, according to court documents.Ray asked if he could bring in his imam in place of the prison chaplain, but was told his request couldn’t be honored due to the department’s policy. Ray and his attorneys filed a civil rights complaint and an emergency motion for stay of execution on Jan. 28, claiming the policy violated his constitutional rights.The Alabama Department of Corrections agreed to exclude the prison chaplain from the death chamber, and on Feb. 1 a district judge denied Ray’s initial request for a stay of execution. The judge wrote that Ray waited “until the eleventh hour” to make his legal claim, it’s a matter of safety and security, and Ray’s imam, who is not a department of corrections employee, is “untrained, inexperienced and outside the state’s control.”The United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit on Wednesday overturned the denial and granted an indefinite stay for the death row inmate, one day before his scheduled execution.“The central constitutional problem here is that the state has regularly placed a Christian cleric in the execution room to minister to the needs of Christian inmates, but has refused to provide the same benefit to a devout Muslim and all other non-Christians,” a panel of three district judges wrote in their decision Wednesday.The judges wrote that it was “exceedingly loath to substitute our judgment on prison procedures,” but that “it looks substantially likely to us that Alabama has run afoul of the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.”“What is central to Establishment Clause jurisprudence is the fundamental principle that at a minimum neither the states nor the federal government may pass laws or adopt policies that aid one religion or prefer one religion over another,” the judges wrote. “And that, it appears to us, is what the Alabama Department of Corrections has done here.”But the nation’s highest court voted to vacate the stay in a 5-4 decision Thursday evening.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Bald eagle shot dead in Indiana, search on for suspect

first_imgIndiana DNR Law Enforcement(NEW YORK) — Officials in Indiana are searching for the person who shot and killed a bald eagle. The bird was shot in Lawrence County on Friday, according to a statement from the law enforcement division of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources. The eagle was discovered alive on Saturday, but later died from the gunshot wound, officials said.Shooting a bald eagle is against the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, which was a federal law enacted in 1940. Punishment includes fines and jail time. “A bald eagle is considered a raptor, which by both state and federal statute, they are protected,” Indiana DNR conservation officer Jim Hash told ABC News. “You cannot actually shoot at or harass any type of raptor.” A reward is available for information leading to arrests. The reward at a minimum is $200, but depending on the information and the charges filed, that amount could increase, Hash said. Anyone with information is asked to call the Indiana Conservation Officers’ Central Dispatch at 812-837-9536 or the anonymous tip line at 1-800-TIPIDNR.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Economy: Recruitment market by sector: Hospitality

first_imgThe hospitality industry is still struggling to recover from the aftermathof the foot and mouth disease and the global downturn following the terroristattacks of 11 September. During the first quarter of 2002, output of the hospitality sector decreasedby 2%. The volume of business currently stands some 7% lower than the peakachieved in 1999. The hotel sector is still in the doldrums, suffering from weak overseasdemand, a downturn in domestic commercial activity and only a modest revival inconsumer bookings. Overall, spending in hotels fell to £10.5bn in 2001, adecline of nearly 5%. This downward trend continued into 2002. According to PKF’s latest figures, occupancy in the regions was 67.7%, a2.7% fall on March 2001. In London, occupancy dipped by 4% to 74.5%, down from77.5% for the same period last year. Compounding the gloom average room rates are reported to have fallen by 4.3%in the regions to £60.27 and by 13.5% to £101.96 in London. By contrast, the restaurant sector fared much better in 2001, with incomerising to £18.1bn, an increase of nearly 12%. Demand was particularly strong inthe second half of the year, and this trend looks set to continue into thefirst half of 2002, assisted by a buoyant household sector. The commercial catering sector also enjoyed strong growth in 2001, withrevenues rising by nearly 19%. Similarly, spending in bars was also relativelybuoyant with revenues rising by 5% in 2001 to £19.2 billion. The broader trends in the hospitality market are reflected in the fortunesof companies within the sector. The Hilton Hotels Corporation reported a dramatic 38% decline in firstquarter income, but noted an improving trend, and some optimism about thefuture. Thistle Hotels saw a 14% fall in turnover and occupancy was flat, but theaverage room rate had fallen 12%. Jarvis Hotels has posted a 49% decline in profits for the year. On a more optimistic note, the Whitbread hotel and leisure group saw firstquarter like-for-like sales up 6.3% in Travel Inn, and 3.1% at its Beefeaterrestaurants. JD Wetherspoon saw like-for-like sales in the 39 weeks to April 28 rise by5.4%, with total sales up 25% to £438.1m. The holiday industry is also recovering from the end-of-year slump. First Choice Holidays said its first-half losses would be greater than lastyear, but it has seen a strong recovery in its mainstream business. The trend is bucked by Mytravel, previously Airtours, which has a millionunsold holidays. Some analysts believe the change of name has confusedconsumers and sent them elsewhere. Holidaybreak, the travel group, saw the drop in demand for its adventureholidays compensated for by the strength of its camping and hotel breaksbusinesses. Within entertainment, Power Leisure, the Irish bookmaker that trades asPaddy Power, reported a leap of 68% in turnover for the 15 weeks to April 16.Its betting shops turnover was up by 42%, and its telephone and onlinedivisions rose by almost 300%. Holmes Place, the upmarket health and fitness club operator, reported flatlike-for-like sales in its mature clubs, due to an increasingly competitiveenvironment. Related posts:No related photos.

UK’s first café pre-order app launched

first_imgThe UK’s first iPhone app for drinks pre-ordering has been launched by independent coffee shop Urban Coffee Company (UCC).The app allows consumers to pre-order their teas and coffees, so they are ready by the time they arrive at the shop, therefore cutting down on queueing time. Although cost is one of the main barriers to developing apps, this one was created for the firm for free by a software deve-loper and UCC regular, Scott James Remnant.”We believe this is the first coffee ordering app in the UK,” said UCC founder Simon Jenner. “Our customers are a tech-savvy bunch and, from day one, we’ve used social media such as Twitter to communicate with them. With that in mind, creating an iPhone app seemed like a logical step to take.”In the three weeks following the app becoming available via the iTunes store, 200 users had downloaded it, and over 100 orders had been placed via the app.l See pages 22-23 for a feature article on apps.last_img
