The Frogs raised awareness – and money- in pink uniforms, for the Kay Yow Cancer Fund and its fight against women’s cancers.The two Big 12 foes had a fight of their own. TCU led the first 37 minutes of the game, but failed to hang on late en route to the loss.The Frogs started out with shooting success in the paint and carried a 42-34 going into halftime. TCU’s offense slowed down in the second half, scoring half as much as they did in the first quarter (24). The Frogs additionally turned the ball over four times.“We stopped attacking and getting into the paint where we were getting really good looks,” TCU head coach Raegan Pebley said. “We opened that third quarter with some turnovers, and I think made us hesitant.”The Frogs did get a few possessions in the paint during the fourth quarter, but only shot 25 percent from the field.Kansas State fought to get their first lead of the game with less than two-minutes on the clock, and held onto it for good.“We gave ourselves a chance,” Pebley said. “Kansas State stepped up and hit some big shots.”Kansas State guard Kindred Wesemann proved to be the difference-maker in the fourth-quarter. Wesemann scored three 3-pointers to help her team close in on the Frogs.TCU Guard AJ Alix was sought out by Kansas State’s defense. She was forced to focus on passing.“AJ is a player that can score, and she has been scoring really well for us,” said Pebley. “I loved that she had confidence in her teammates to get some points on the board.”Despite the loss, TCU forward Amy Okonkwo rose to the occasion, leading the team with 24 points for the night.“I am proud of our team’s fight,” Pebley said. “It showed that they are still really invested in each other and growing.”With youth aplenty, the Frogs are remaining focused on trying to come out better and better each contest.“It hurts to fight that hard and lose,” Okonkwo said. “As a team we are just re-grouping, because we do still have three more games left.”The Horned Frogs’ next game is Feb. 22 in Morgantown, West Virginia as they take on the West Virginia Mountaineers.

Don’t miss this extraordinary evening of art and conversation between All Saints rector Ed Bacon and artist Richard Hearns — named one of Ireland’s most important young artists.Born in Beirut and raised in Dublin, Hearns’ paintings document a search for an idyll. Driven by a deep spiritual sensibility, his experiences and connections with separate locations and cultures are combined to form a triangular history.All Saints Rector Ed Bacon says, “I got to know Richard Hearns and his beautiful paintings during our journeys to the homeland of the Celtic poet-philosopher, John O’Donohue, on the Western Coast of Ireland. This 35-year old artist and athlete embodies that Celtic spirituality where God is seen and revealed in the beauty of nature. Just as the poet Mary Oliver defines prayer as paying careful attention to creation, Richard Hearns embodies that prayerful attention in his paintings. Richard and I have communed together not only in his village church, in John O’Donohue’s favorite whiskey bar, as well as in gazing at Richard’s paintings. Now you get to see an exhibit of those paintings and join in a conversation we will have about Spirituality and the Creative Process. We will also get to sample the delicious Thai cooking of Richard’s wife, Boo. I hope you will join me for an evening of spirituality and beauty.”For more information contact Debbie Daniels at [email protected] or (626) 583-2750. All Saints Church is at 132 N.

A 61-unit Pasadena apartment building will be preserved as affordable senior housing following the completion of a $31.2 million transaction announced Monday by Standard Communities.Under the plan, the Villa Raymond Apartments, 455 N. Raymond Ave., will remain low-cost housing for senior citizens for decades to come, Standard Communities said in a written statement.The transaction was financed through tax-exempt bonds through the California Debt Limit Allocation Committee, as well as federal Low-Income Housing Tax Credits provided by the California Tax Credit Allocation Committee, the company said.“Completed in partnership with HUD, CDLAC, TCAC, and the nonprofit Housing On Merit, this $31.2 million transaction will preserve the affordability of all 61 units at Villa Raymond for the next 55 years,” according to the statement. “A comprehensive renovation program will invest more than $5 million to modernize unit interiors, upgrade building systems, improve accessibility features and enhance the property’s amenity spaces. In addition, residents will now have access to a comprehensive suite of services and programming, such as health and wellness programs, at no cost.”Affordable senior housing is sorely needed in the region, said Standard Communities Chief Investment Officer Robert Koerner.“There is a shortage of affordable senior apartments in the Los Angeles area, and we believe everyone, regardless of age or income level, deserves to have a place to call home. Standard is pleased to provide beautiful, safe homes for seniors in Pasadena,” said Koerner.Standard Communities Director of West Coast Production Geoff Moen added that the current cost of building makes preserving affordable senior housing vital.“With the significant cost of new construction in Southern California, the importance of being able to preserve existing affordable housing units at communities such as Villa Raymond is critical to the economic and social health of Pasadena and the Los Angeles metropolitan area in general,” Moen said.Standard Communities, which is the affordable housing division of Standard Companies, has now created or preserved roughly 2,600 units of affordable housing in California, and more than 9,300 nationwide, the company said.More information about Standard Communities is available online at standard-communities.com.

Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Print This Post The Fight Against Blight in Maryland Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Maryland Governor Larry Hogan signed a fast-track foreclosure law which would expedite the foreclosure process with the intent to reduce community blight, following the footsteps of a similar bill in Ohio.”Blight caused by vacant properties is a serious problem in certain Maryland communities,” said Delegate Marvin Holmes, sponsor of the house bill. “The longer properties remain vacant–the greater the chance problems will occur, including vandalism, crime and lower property values.”This bill could be the push other states need to move forward with their own fast track foreclosure bills.“Vacant and abandoned properties are a community crisis of national proportion,” said Five Star President and CEO Ed Delgado. “The bills introduced in Ohio and Maryland provide other states the needed incentive to make progress towards ensuring that these magnets for crime and drugs will be quickly rehabilitated and promote the safety and stability of neighborhoods across the nation.”Robert Klein, Founder and Chairman of Community Blight Solutions, has been a leading advocate of the bill. We spoke with Klein on the impact of this bill in the fight against community blight in states and communities across the country.“It’s very significant,” said Klein. “Both the Ohio bill and the Maryland bill passed unanimously, not many bills pass unanimously. This bill was debated quite a bit by the Maryland legislators, and they all came to the conclusion that having a property vacant and abandoned for two years is the wrong thing for community blight. So now we’re seeing a number other states looking at it closely and considering it, like New York, Illinois and Pennsylvania.”What Klein notes is the more proactive approach states are taking toward the problem of community blight.“I feel like we’re finally reaching a stage where the industry and communities and states are looking at the whole community blight and properties sitting out there with a more proactive approach,” said Klein. “Everything has been reactive, the property has already been vandalized, the property has already caused community blight. I think this fast track of vacant and abandoned properties is the first step in being a proactive approach, to not allow the property to become a community blight.” Community Blight Solutions Ed Delgado Five Star Foreclosure Larry Hogan Maryland Governor Ohio Foreclosure Bill Robert Klein 2017-05-25 Brianna Gilpin Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Tagged with: Community Blight Solutions Ed Delgado Five Star Foreclosure Larry Hogan Maryland Governor Ohio Foreclosure Bill Robert Klein Share Save Rachel Williams attended Texas Christian University (TCU), where she graduated with Magna Cum Laude with a dual Bachelor of Arts in English and History.

An assessment of the Polar Weather Research and Forecast (WRF) model representation of near-surface meteorological variables over West Antarctica
Despite the recent significant climatic changes observed over West Antarctica, which include large warming in central West Antarctica and accelerated ice loss, adequate validation of regional simulations of meteorological variables are rare for this region. To address this gap, results from a recent version of the Polar Weather Research and Forecasting model (Polar WRF) covering West Antarctica at a high horizontal resolution of 5 km were validated against near-surface meteorological observations. The model employed physics options that included the Mellor-Yamada-Nakanishi-Niino (MYNN) boundary layer scheme, the WRF Single Moment 5-Class cloud microphysics scheme, the new version of the Rapid Radiative Transfer Model for both shortwave and longwave radiation, and the Noah land surface model. Our evaluation finds this model to be a useful tool for realistically capturing the near-surface meteorological conditions. It showed high skill in simulating surface pressure (correlation ≥0.97), good skill for wind speed with better correlation at inland sites (0.7-0.8) compared to coastal sites (0.3-0.6), generally good representation of strong wind events, and good skill for temperature in winter (correlation ≥0.8). The main shortcomings of this configuration of Polar WRF are an occasional failure to properly represent transient cyclones and their influence on coastal winds, an amplified diurnal temperature cycle in summer, and a general tendency to underestimate the wind speed at inland sites in summer. Additional sensitivity studies were performed to quantify the impact of the choice of boundary layer scheme and surface boundary conditions. It is shown that the model is most sensitive to the choice of boundary layer scheme, with the representation of the temperature diurnal cycle in summer significantly improved by selecting the Mellor-Yamada-Janjic boundary layer scheme. By contrast, the model results showed little sensitivity to whether the horizontal resolution was 5 or 15 km.
