(AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez) printThe TCU Riff Ram chant is one of the oldest traditions in TCU athletics.Band director Claude Sammis, who first organized the university’s band in 1925, started the chant in 1926 and it is now chanted at every home football game in Amon G. Carter Stadium.There was a slight change at the most recent TCU vs. UT game.As the crowd prepared to chant, a Riff Ram rap blared through the stadium and the crowd went wild.“Them T.C.U. Boys” made their vision a reality. The group of four men met at TCU in 2000. All four men came from musical backgrounds and started freestyling at parties.Daniel Earl, a member of Them T.C.U. Boys, got the idea for the song when he was at a restaurant with quarterback Trevone Boykin. At dinner, Boykin discussed how pumped he was for this season.Daniel Earl then called the other members of his musical group and shared his new idea. He had an old hip-hop beat playing in his head and revamped the Riff Ram chant into a rap song.After the group finalized and recorded the song, they shared their piece via email to TCU alumni. Eventually, TCU Athletics Director Chris Del Conte and Assistant Athletics Director for Marketing Drew Martin got a hold of the song.“I love the song,” Martin said. “Over the course of my career, I’ve been sent numerous team-themed songs, but this is the first one where I listened to it and thought, ‘This could work.’”Martin said that it makes perfect sense for TCU to play the song at games as the Riff Ram tradition has continued to evolve and become an even stronger brand component of TCU.Them T.C.U. Boys said the next step is to create a music video. They said they want to include all of TCU Athletics and the entire Horned Frog Family. The song “Give Em’ Hell” (TCU Fight Anthem) can be found on SoundCloud and will soon be available for purchase on iTunes.Them T.C.U. Boys at Global 1 Entertainment recording some new music.

(Photo by James Carbone)The Coronavirus pandemic has led to new battle lines over the city’s minimum wage ordinance.The wage is scheduled to increase to $15 in July, but struggling restaurant owners want the City Council to either delay the increase or move to the slower state schedule, which won’t reach $15 for another two years.“What it will do is if it went through, it would just force businesses to either lay off more people or raise the prices and the public doesn’t have money right now because they’re not working,” Marc Cantor, owner of Cantor’s Deli. “So it’s really bad for everybody. I don’t see how it could be good for anybody at this time with this pandemic going on.”See related story hereMeanwhile, low-income wage earners want their money now, and say they shouldn’t be forced to bear the brunt of the pandemic.“This is the most appropriate time to get a raise,” said local activist Pablo Alvarado. “What you need to do during a pandemic is protect the most vulnerable and the most vulnerable are the low-wage workers. That’s a fact. There are many ways that the local authorities can assist businesses. There are many ways they can forgive taxes, so why does the burden have to fall on the shoulders of the workers?”Activists rallied in front of Pasadena City Hall on Wednesday and called on the City Council to keep the city’s minimum wage ordinance on schedule and increase the minimum wage to $15 on July 1.They claim the Economic Development and Technology Committee is scheduled to discuss the matter in a special meeting on Thursday.City Council members acknowledge the topic has come up.“It’s not on the agenda,” said Councilman Andy Wilson. “But you know let’s be clear, the business owners are tossing out any idea possible that will give them some opportunity to have a decent chance at bringing their businesses back online and surviving. So you know clearly the topic of the minimum wage has been raised but it has not been agendized at this point.”Restaurant owners have had at least two Zoom meetings with local officials and at least one council member.“I think every retailer is a little petrified right now because this came so abruptly,” said Greg Smith, who owns several restaurants in Pasadena. “And now we are in unprecedented, uncharted times. I think we’re supposed to get some guidelines from the city you know about what needs to take place inside our facilities, and we’re waiting anxiously to get advice on those.”The increased minimum wage was opposed by members of the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce and restaurant owners who said increasing the wage would force them to reduce their workforce and cut hours of operation.Pasadena’s ordinance included a review, which allowed the city to pause and look at the impacts of the minimum wage in 2019 before agreeing to continue moving forward.Restaurant owners pleaded with the council en masse to use the pause to switch to the state’s slower schedule.The city passed its ordinance in February 2016, two months before then-Gov. Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 3, which increases the state-mandated minimum wage to $15 in 2022.The council ultimately stayed on track with its own ordinance.However, that was before the Coronavirus forced local officials to close just about every business, leaving restaurant owners and low wage workers wondering how they were going to make money going forward.“No one at the city council meeting in 2019 when we all went there to review the Pasadena minimum wage ordinance for a possible pause would have ever predicted what the world is contending with today,” said former restaurateur Robin Salzer. “Businesses are closed — some permanent — and employees aren’t working.”Salzer said he believes 30 percent of restaurants and retail businesses may never reopen.“It would seem that raising the minimum wage on July 1 while business is still shut down or working at a possible 25 to 50 percent capacity of normal times could force more of these businesses to never reopen or to reopen with a severely reduced work force and staff. I would suggest that the City Council consider a 12 month pause on raising the minimum wage to allow the businesses to rebuild themselves and to reassure their customers that they are safe, clean, and happy to welcome them back.”Marta Salazar, who lives in Pasadena and works in a restaurant said she is expecting the minimum wage to increase to $15 on July 1.“That is what the politicians told us,” Salazar said. “In times of pandemic and economic depression, we need more money in our pockets, not less. It is unfair and immoral that workers have to bear the burden all the time.” Community News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  18 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Top of the News last_img read more

Staying Current with the Changing REO Space

first_img Share Save The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago September 14, 2016 1,029 Views The REO landscape is not what it used to be six years ago at the height of the foreclosure wave—and many will say it is not the same as it was even two years or a year ago.The best in the REO space gathered on Tuesday for the REO Lab at the 2016 Five Star Conference and Expo to discuss ways to survive and grow business in the evolving REO landscape, which has seen volumes decline to just a fraction of what they were in 2010 when foreclosures peaked.A standing room only crowd listened as experts provided insight on how to best take on the new REO marketplace, covering such topics as better branding your company in front of asset managers, servicers, and investors, developing a well-thought out business plan to increase listings, asset management, diversification and converting leads to listings, becoming indispensable, using technology to expand your business, and alternative disposition. The lab was co-directed by Mercedes Henriksson, Director of Loss Mitigation with Fannie Mae, and Lisa Shepherd, Executive Director of Property Preservation, Assero 24. The host of the lab was Jon Miko, CEO of Alacrity Services.“The market has changed and real estate has changed,” Henrikkson said. “A lot of the folks here at the Five Star Conference, the majority of their business is concentrated on REOs, so when you see that inventory decline so drastically, it’s scary for them. Part of it is reinventing what they do to do it better, and the other part is looking and finding other channels for disposition of properties that they can become part of, whether that be the auction space, whether that be the HECM space, whether that be the single-family rental space. To some of those folks, those were new opportunities, and that’s what they’re looking to do—in some ways replace some, if not all of what they’ve lost on the REO side, with something else.”The lab included an update on Fannie Mae from Mark Arnold, Sales Director with Fannie Mae; an update on the Residential REO Market from Mary Best Brill, managing partner, U.S. REO Partners; meaningful data analytics in an Equator update from George Roletter, VP digital products and marketing, Equator; outsourcing, asset management, and mortgage servicing solutions in an update on VRM Mortgage Services from Brandon Kirkham, SVP of business expansion, VRM; and an REO update from Sharon Bartlett, executive director of industry relations with the Five Star Institute.“I think that people are realizing the market may shift again, and if you’re ahead of your game and paying attention now, if it shifts, and your knowledge is there, you’ll be able to handle that industry, I think REOs will come back—not the way they were when the market shifted in 2008, 2009, and 2010,” said Joyce Essex-Harvey, an agent with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage and one of the speakers in the lab. “But I think the inventory will go up in a year or two. Property values, at least where we are (in Los Angeles), have jumped so high in the last two to three years—in some places, 20 percent in a year. When you have that kind of shift that quickly, usually there has to be some kind of adjustment. You can tell already in the really high end in Los Angeles that it’s slowing down a little bit, and sometimes that’s an indicator that it’s shifting a little bit.”Speakers included (in addition to those listed above) were Garrett Mays, RES.NET; Chris McMahon, REO Management Solutions; Rebecca Smith, Green River Capital; Steve Salimbas, Allyconnect; Carla Ulufanua, LRC Asset Management; Rochelle Jones, Alta Realty Company; Erica Jade, Realty One Group; Clay Lehman, Resolute Asset Management; Michael Harris, Exceleras; JP Ackerman, HouseCanary; Shawn Miller, Hudson & Marshall; Tyler Smith, Wells Fargo, Rick Sharga, Ten-X; and Ted Weinstein, Castle Rock Realty Group.“The biggest thing overall from the presentation is the diversity that an agent needs to have now,” said Lisa Shepherd, Executive Director of Property Preservation, Assero 24, and lab co-director. “That’s really the theme we’ve heard across the last couple of days. REO agents need to be more diverse. In the past, REO agents have focused solely on REO. Now you’re hearing a lot more about REO agents doing more in the property preservation space, you heard a lot about reverse mortgages, a lot more about auctions, so they’re really almost re-invented themselves.”Editor’s note: the Five Star Institute is the parent company of DS News and DSNews.com. in Daily Dose, Featured, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Subscribe Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Related Articles Kendall Baer is a Baylor University graduate with a degree in news editorial journalism and a minor in marketing.

University of Oklahoma sorority kicks out member over racist blackface video

first_imgKOCO-TV(NORMAN, Okla.) — A racist video that swept across the campus of the University of Oklahoma (OU) this week received widespread condemnation and resulted in one student being kicked out of her sorority.The video was posted to Twitter on Friday and includes a student from the Tri Delta sorority filming her friend as she is painting her face black. The student filming the video jokes, “Stop, that’s too much paint!”The student, with her face painted black, then flicks off the camera and uses the N-word.Officials have not named either woman involved in the video, but Oklahoma’s Tri Delta chapter quickly moved to expel the woman who filmed the video from the sorority on Saturday. The student on camera who used the slur was not a member of the sorority.“Our chapter condemns the racist, offensive and disgraceful conduct of the two women involved in the video posted yesterday,” Theta Gamma Delta Delta Delta Collegiate Chapter President London Moore said in a statement posted to Instagram. “More specifically, we are deeply disappointed in the actions of the one woman associated with the Theta Gamma chapter of Tri Delta.”“The behavior documented in the video is abhorrent and is in no way consistent with Tri Delta’s ideals,” it continued.Tri Delta also said in the statement that it would “make strides toward change.”Oklahoma President James Gallogly and Dr. Jane Irungu, interim associate vice president of the Office of University Community at OU, issued a joint statement on Friday: “We are saddened and offended that on the eve of such an important holiday for our nation we are reminded how far we have yet to come in the conversation about treating everyone with respect and dignity. Martin Luther King Jr. said, ‘The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character — that is the goal of true education.’”Gallogly said the school “abhors such conduct and condemns” the actions and language in the video, but it appears punishment from the school will be limited.“The students have offered to apologize in order to reflect their regret,” the president’s letter notes.“My role now is to move quickly to educate, to inform — and I’m glad that, meeting with these two young women, they acknowledged their mistake, and we shall move on from there,” Irungu told Oklahoma City ABC affiliate KOCO-TV.The university received widespread negative attention in 2015 after members of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity were filmed singing a racist song to the tune of If You’re Happy and You Know It while on a bus. The video was released online, and the frat was later closed and two members were kicked out by then-President David Boren.Boren retired as president prior to the current school year.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Up to 20,000 Guardsmen, many armed, will now help with inauguration security

first_imgSarah Silbiger/Bloomberg via Getty ImagesBy LUIS MARTINEZ, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — The security preparations for next week’s presidential inauguration increased yet again Wednesday with now up to 20,000 National Guardsmen authorized to provide security at the U.S. Capitol and around Washington, D.C., for next week’s ceremony, according to a Defense Department official.The ramp-up in the number of Guardsmen in the nation’s capital means there could be four times as many American military service members in the city than there are in Iraq and Afghanistan combined.There are now 2,500 troops in each of those countries.The Guardsmen, many now displaying weapons, are working in shifts to provide round-the-clock security both inside the Capitol and around the perimeter of the Capitol grounds.In a startling image, National Guardsmen, in between shifts, were seen sleeping with their M-4 rifles on the floors of the U.S. Capitol Wednesday morning as the House was about to begin a historic impeachment debate. The sight of the sleeping, armed U.S. troops was jarring for Capitol Hill employees and reporters, but a defense official told ABC News that the sight is not uncommon for deployed troops taking breaks in between long security shifts.Previously, up to 15,000 Guardsmen had been authorized to assist with inauguration security with 10,000 to be in place by this weekend.The official said the increase in the number of Guardsmen is due to additional requests from the Secret Service, the FBI, and U.S. Capitol Police.The increased number of Guardsmen are coming from states across the country and are expected to be in place by this weekend, said the official.The National Guardsmen providing security around the U.S. Capitol area have now been authorized to be armed after Secretary of the Army Ryan McCarthy approved a request from civilian law enforcement agencies on Tuesday night.Additional Guardsmen who will be assisting local police in Washington D.C. on city streets providing traffic control assistance will be unarmed.There are currently 6,600 National Guardsmen in the Washington D.C. area.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

What’s good enough for the online customers…

first_imgThe philosophy behind Egg’s shift to a totally digital solution for its HRsystems was a simple one: why shouldn’t HR be run like the business is run –totally online? “We deliver our customers’ statements online so why not deliver ouremployees’ payslips electronically too?” says Caroline Black, head of HRsystems at the digital financial services company, which provides banking,insurance, investments, mortgages and a shopping portal through its website.”We wanted an HR strategy that matched the business strategy.” When Egg launched in October 1998, it had 100 employees, which quickly grewto 2,000, based in London, Dudley and Derby. By 2000, Egg knew that a traditionalHR infrastructure could not service the needs of a young, digital company witha fluid workforce and global ambitions. “It was a case of recruit, recruit, recruit in the early days,”says Black, whose own background is a mixture of compensation and benefits andIT. “Our HR systems were provided by a third party but we knew the wayforward lay in a pure internet solution that enabled us to deploy to everyonevia the web.” While most e-HR systems are now web-based, Black says Egg’s research showedthat not all were what they claimed to be. “There was a degree of smokeand mirrors with some systems and this is why you need IT involved right fromthe start. HR can’t be expected to have this sort of expertise. You need toknow you have the right systems infrastructure to meet increasingdemands.” A project team was set up and given six months to revolutionise the way HRoperated at Egg. An invitation to tender was sent out and PeopleSoft was appointedto undertake ‘project enabling’. “PeopleSoft 8 Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions comprehensivelymatched our set of requirements and has strength in all applications across theHR spectrum,” explains Black. PeopleSoft 8 was implemented to bring a portal concept to Egg that wouldenable employees and managers to go to the same place for all their HRinformation and to carry out all people transactions. Branded ‘Buzz’, it alsoholds all Egg policies and procedures and the staff handbook. A self-service HR facility went online a month later because HR wanted toroad test it thoroughly itself first. To date, the portal has handled 80,000transactions since its introduction. “We’re a 24/7, 365-day company – sois Buzz,” says Black. Implementation was completed in the six-month period but some customisation hadto take place. This was mainly due to a slight ‘disconnection’ between HR andthe original scoping exercise, recalls Black, who explained they had expectedthe self-service facility on the system to commit information to the databaseas soon as an employee inputs it. “Instead it would send a message to HRwith the information. This wasn’t what we wanted so we commissioned acustomisation programme to change it.” Egg undertook an examination to predict reactions to the system and foundthere were unlikely to be any tangible objections because the system made lifeeasier for HR and the workforce – it reduced administration and streamlinedprocesses, freeing up more time for focused face-to-face time with employees. “We knew we might get an emotional reaction from some people,” shesays. But, objections didn’t last long and Egg had a simple and clearcutdefence of the system already in place. The future for Egg’s e-HR system lies in maximising the benefits of datawarehousing, whereby data collected from the PeopleSoft system can be used fora multitude of purposes. “The system lets us measure people information in all sorts of ways,but we want to integrate and measure financial and revenue-related info next,and really see how things affect the bottom line,” says Black. www.peoplesoft.comwww.egg.com Related posts:No related photos.

On the probability distributions of SuperDARN Doppler spectral width measurements inside and outside the cusp

first_imgThe Doppler spectral width of backscatter from the SuperDARN HF radars has been routinely used to identify the ionospheric cusp. The probability distribution of spectral width values has been described as Gaussian ( normal) in the cusp and exponential equatorward of it. Here we re-examine the empirical distributions and show that they are better described by a log-Levy distribution in both the cusp and non-cusp regions, with the same Levy index a approximate to 1.85 but varying Levy location parameter. The spectral width distribution may also be log-Levy at other magnetic local times, but with generally different parameters.last_img read more
