The multi-media campaign will incorporate mail, telephone (in association with McGregor Jones) and e-mail communications and will test different segments of the alumni base.Roger Lawson, Managing Director of Cascaid Marketing and lead planner said: “These are exciting times for the University. They have built strong relationships with many alumni over the last few years, but have never asked them for donations. They now have alumni who have actually asked to be able to give to the University.

Nicholaus Noguez, a sophomore communication studies major, heard about Roundnet five years ago in his hometown of Wylie, Texas.“I started playing with a couple of high school buddies of mine and then we realized that there is actually a competitive aspect to it,” Noguez said. Noguez entered his first tournament in April of 2017 and in his words, was “destroyed,” losing 0-16. The result did not discourage him but encouraged him to get better and play more. “After seeing the community and seeing so how many people got together to play the sport they all loved, I wanted to continue playing here at TCU,” Noguez said. What is Roundnet?Roundnet is a sport inspired by the basics of volleyball that contains a round net, held up by pegs and a similarly shaped but smaller ball. The Roundet club practices outside on the volleyball courts on a Wednesday night. Photo courtesy of Nick Noguez. “The game consists of two teams with two players,” Noguez said. “Each team is granted up to three touches, or hits, before having to put onto the net. Just like in volleyball, you don’t have to use all three touches, but it helps to control the ball.” Opponents are able to run around the entire net to hit the ball with their hand or any part of their body. Bringing Roundnet to TCUNoguez, president of TCU’s Roundnet club, and his friend Matthew Dena, a first-year political science major and the club’s vice-president, decided to start a club team to not only teach the sport but to also practice and compete. “I moved into Milton Daniel and saw that he had a spikeball net,” Dena said. “That’s really what brought us together and why not get others into this amazing game that we just love.” The two were able to get approval from the Student Government Association in January to start the club sport and have been meeting up and gaining members since. Members meet Wednesday nights at 7 p.m. on the volleyball courts, weather permitting, or at the racquetball courts inside the Recreation Center and Saturdays in the Commons at 2 p.m. The Roundnet club practices inside the racquetball while it is cold outdoors. Photo courtesy of Nick Noguez. “We have a running group chat if people want to play informally, but it’s a sport you can take anywhere and that’s the beauty of it,” Noguez said. “You don’t have to have a formal soccer field or a giant football stadium to play, you can fold it up and take it anywhere, literally play it in a tree.”Dena said that the club has about 15 members and is quickly growing as people see that this is a sport anyone can play. “We’re trying to bring people together over a new sport, introduce a new type of community to TCU,” Dena said. Spikeball Inc.Noguez said that Spikeball Inc. is the governing body and one of the leading manufactures of the sport, all pro-tournaments use them. “There are three to four brands that sell the roundnet nets, Spikeball was the first one that I had, but when I went to a tournament, they only use SpikeBall nets,” Noguez said. Logan Cornelius, Senior Operations Manager at Spikeball Inc. and pro player, has become a mentor for Noguez and has helped him get into contact with local schools to teach the sport. “I have started working for Spikeball to teach classes on the sport, to make sure that people are learning that this a sport that people can play for the rest of their lives,” Noguez said. Nick Noguez, bottom left, takes a selfie with students he taught Spikeball to at Centennial High School in Burleson, Texas. Photo courtesy of Nick Noguez. In February, Noguez traveled to Austin to teach the game to 37 physical education teachers who then taught their students and purchased Spikeball nets for their classes. With the help of Cornelius, Noguez has been able to reach out to several other schools to either teach directly to students or to train PE teachers on the sport.  More than just a sportThe game of roundnet has been more than just a sport for Noguez: it’s served as an outlet that challenges him and develops his character. “The sport has definitely developed me mentally,” said Noguez. “Playing the game itself requires a lot of discipline. It is easy to get in your head after missing a few serves or not getting easy shots. Working through that definitely reflects in life and getting out of tough situations you find yourself in.” Noguez said that he has met his best friends through the sport and has become passionate about teaching the sport because it is so fun for him. Matthew Dena (left) and Nick Noguez (right) set up a table for a club fair in Waits hall to, spread the word about the new club sport team. Photo courtesy of Nick Noguez. Each week Noguez feels more connected to his friends and peers who join in on Wednesday nights to play. “My hope is to make a national appearance by the time I graduate,” Noguez said. “I may be a dreamer, but I want TCU to take the national title at the college nationals” last_img read more

Herald senior assistant editor harassed by Military Intelligence officers

first_imgNews News News to go further April 21, 2021 Find out more PakistanAsia – Pacific PakistanAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders wrote to President Pervez Musharraf today asking him to get the Pakistan’s Military Intelligence services to stop harassing Amir Mir, the senior assistant editor of the monthly Herald.Irked by his articles about them, the Military Intelligence agencies have been using various methods to monitor and intimidate him, including visits to his home, phone calls and intercepting his e-mail. “Putting pressure on a journalist in an attempt to dissuade him from covering sensitive subjects is completely unacceptable,” the letter to Musharraf said.Two plain-clothes Military Intelligence officers, Liaqat Ali and Shabbir Ahmed, went to Mir’s home in Faisal, near Lahore (in the north-eastern province of Punjab) on 24 November at the behest of their superior, Zaheeruddin Ahmed. They told Mir they had come to talk about his articles. “You should better consult me before writing on sensitive issues,” Ali said, giving his mobile number to Mir. Then, to intimidate him, Ali reminded him that his car was torched by unidentified arsonists exactly a year ago.Two hours later, Mir received a phone call from Ali warning him not to tell anyone about the visit. When Mir replied that he had already told several newspapers, Ali rebuked him for not “acting responsibly.”For the past week, Mir has noticed that people are managing to get into his e-mail and read both his incoming and outgoing messages. He has changed his e-mail address three times since this began, but each time the problem has recurred. He told Reporters Without Borders he suspected Military Intelligence.Mir has written about the Military Intelligence agency known as Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). A magazine that is distributed throughout Pakistan, the Herald is known for its independent editorial line and its reporting on such sensitive issues as Pakistan’s Kashmir, fundamentalism and other political developments involving the army.

May Day Fest set for Saturday

first_img Published 10:59 pm Thursday, May 13, 2010 Skip Print Article Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Book Nook to reopen May Day Fest set for Saturday After the Maypole “strut,” there will be sack races, the egg roll and inflatable fun for the kids and Bingo for the adults.Around 1 p.m., everyone will be invited to a hamburger/hotdog lunch and, after a short time of rest, the activities will begin at 2 p.m. with basketball and volleyball games, water slides and Bingo … and the cakewalk.“Everybody loves the cakewalk and we’ll have a table full of cakes so there will be a lot of winners,” Sankey said.Around 3 p.m. a kickball game is scheduled for the younger children and softball for the older “kids.” And the Bingo table will still be open for those who prefer a less strenuous activity. If the talk around town is right, there will be a free-for-all at the Academy Street Community Park on Saturday, May 15.For the past couple of years, it’s been like that and, if the members of Rockwest Baptist Church have any say about it, the free-for-alls will continue for many years to come.“We think it’s important to bring the community together at least once a year to enjoy the fellowship of family, friends and neighbors,” said Doristine Sankey, a co-coordinator of the annual May Day Fest, which is sponsored by Rockwest Baptist Church. “There is no admission charge and all of the activities are free. We want everybody to come out and enjoy an afternoon of fellowship and fun. And, it’s all free.” May Day Fest will get under way at noon with the planting of the Maypole, which officially opens the spring festival.Sankey laughed at the idea of dancing around the Maypole.“We’ll probably strut around the Maypole but we’ll get the festival off to a good start,” she said. “We’ll have activities for the young children, the teens and young adults and our senior adults. So there will be plenty to do and those who don’t want to participate can sit back and watch.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Latest Stories Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits By Jaine Treadwell “We’ll have so many activities going on at the same time that we don’t need entertainment,” Sankey said. “We’ll have plenty to keep people interested and entertained.”The May Day Fest is an opportunity for families to spend some time together and enjoy an afternoon of wholesome fun at not cost.“We just hope that people will take advantage of this opportunity to come together as families, friends and as a community,” Sankey said.
