He is the Managing Editor for TCU360, and his passions are God, family, friends, sports, and great food. + posts printIt was a banner night for TCU women’s volleyball Wednesday as they took down the No. 2 Texas Longhorns at the TCU Campus Recreation Center.The Frogs checked off a number of firsts in their program’s history with their straight sets victory over the Longhorns (25-19, 25-19, 25-20). It was the first time TCU has beaten Texas, the first time TCU has beaten the No. 2 team in the country, and the first time Director of Volleyball Jill Kramer has beaten Texas in her coaching career.“I love firsts, there’s always firsts to be had,” Kramer said. “Stepping on the court with a talented team like Texas and coming out on top definitely makes this win a little bit sweeter.”The key stat of the match was the amount of times TCU was able to block Texas’ hard-hitting frontline. The Frogs out-blocked the Longhorns 8.5-6.o.“I think we see some of the best blockers in the country in our own gym, and we don’t see any opponent as bigger or better than us,” Kramer said.TCU’s unexpected win was fueled by the breakout performance of outside hitter Sarita Mikals, who led both teams in kills with 11.“Sarita Mikals was off the charts for us. She’s such a great player and we need that from her every time,” Kramer said.Wednesday was also the first time this TCU team has faced Texas with their entire lineup intact, as outside hitter Jillian Bergeson sat out the last match TCU played against Texas with an ankle injury.“She was huge for us tonight, moving her to middle back really allowed her to make some great plays,” Kramer said.Setters Kaylee Smith and Alexia Heist tied for the team lead with 16 assists each, both playing a significant role in the win.“Our setters made some great plays and we just kept telling them to keep making great decisions and to keep putting our hitters in great positions, which is what they did all night long,” Kramer said.TCU sold out yet another home game with a total of 2,009 people in attendance. Coincidentally, 2009 was the first year TCU played Texas in volleyball.Kramer said the crowd’s energy played a factor in rattling one of the top volleyball teams in the nation.“Our crowd was amazing tonight, and it has been all year long,” Kramer said. “Everyone in that gym tonight could feel it. I could feel it, our players could feel it, and everyone wearing purple tonight knew we were going to win.”TCU’s next game is on Oct. 31 in Manhattan, Kansas against Kansas State at 7 p.m. The next home game is Nov. 7 at 12 p.m. against Iowa State.

News RSF asks authorities, opposition to guarantee reporters’ safety during Kyrgyzstan protests KyrgyzstanEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders condemns an attack of unprecedented violence on journalist Syrgak Abdyldaev of the independent weekly Reporter Bishkek yesterday evening in the street outside the newspaper’s office in Bishkek. As he was leaving, four men got out of a car and stabbed him 21 times. They also broke both of his hands, his forearms and ribs.He was rushed to a hospital intensive care unit where, despite losing a lot of blood, his condition is now stable. He is expected to undergo two major operations in the next few days.“The attack on Abdyldaev is appalling and confirms the climate of extreme hostility towards the press that prevails in Kyrgyzstan,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities say they are investigating, but that is not enough. We insist that everything possible is done to shed light on this serious assault. Those responsible must be tried and punished.”Reporter Bishkek is one of the few independent Kyrgyz newspapers publishing reports and editorials critical of the government. Its latest issue, published on 27 February, had two articles on the country’s political and economic situation. One of them, co-authored by the editor, referred to the possibility that President Kurmanbek Bakiyev could win another term in elections expected to be held in the autumn.Kyrgyzstan was ranked 111th out of 173 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. Eighteen months after independent journalist Alisher Sayipov, the publisher of the newspaper Sayasat, was gunned down in the southern city of Osh in October 2007, neither the perpetrators nor the instigators of his murder have been identified.

RSF_en United StatesAmericas May 20, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Six French journalists arrested and deported from the United States Organisation News WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Follow the news on United States News Receive email alerts Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says Reporters Without Borders today protested against the detention of six French journalists on arrival a week ago at Los Angeles international airport to cover a video games trade show and their forcible repatriation after being held at the airport for more than 24 hours.”These journalists were treated like criminals – subjected to several body searches, handcuffed, locked up and fingerprinted,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard complained in a letter to the US ambassador to Paris, Howard Leach.Ménard urged the ambassador to press for an investigation and to ensure that the journalists will have no problems the next time they travel to the United States. He also suggested that it should be clarified whether or not journalists travelling to the United States need a specific press visa. “As things stand, the decisions taken by airport security officials appear to have been arbitrary if not discriminatory,” Ménard said in his letter.The six journalists arrived at Los Angeles airport in two groups a day apart. The first group consisted of Alexandre Alfonsi of Télé 7 Jours, Stéphanie Pic of Télé Poche and Michel Perrot of TV Hebdo, who arrived at 2 p.m. on 10 May without press visas. Pic and Perrot passed through immigration without any problem, but Alfonsi was denied access to US territory on the grounds that he lacked the required visa.Pic and Perrot tried in vain to find out from airport officials what had happened to their colleague. All three journalists were then detained and held for a total of 26 hours, which included a night in the cells of a US immigration detention centre.They were subjected to interrogation sessions and six body searches. They were handcuffed while being moved from one place to another, and they were fingerprinted. One official told Alfonsi he would not be able to return to the United States again. They were put on a flight for France at around 4 p.m. the next day and were not able to recover their passports until the aeroplane made a stopover in Amsterdam.The other group, which suffered an almost identical fate, consisted of Thierry Falcoz, editor in chief of Game One cable television, and two of his cameramen, Laurent Patureau and Alex Gorsky. They arrived at Los Angeles international airport at around 3 p.m. on 11 May. Falcoz and Gorsky passed through immigration without a problem but Patureau was stopped by an official who said he needed a press visa.When Patureau’s two colleagues protested, all three were detained. After being held for nine hours in an airport waiting room they were taken to a US immigration detention centre where they were held overnight in a cell. They were subjected to repeated body searches and interrogation. They were handcuffed when taken from one place to another, and they were fingerprinted. Finally, they were put on a flight back to France at around 6 p.m. the next day.

TurkeyEurope – Central Asia RSF_en to go further Organisation Follow the news on Turkey Reporters Without Borders condemns plans to prosecute two cartoonists employed by the daily Cumhuriyet, Musa Kart and Zafer Timuçin, on charges of “insulting the president” under article 299 of the criminal code, which carries a maximum sentence of five years and four months in prison. They were questioned by prosecutors in the Istanbul suburb of Sisli on 22 January.“The judicial proceedings initiated against these two cartoonists are arbitrary and unfortunately this case is not unprecedented,” the press freedom organisation said.Kart and Timuçin are to be prosecuted for cartoons published in November. Kart’s cartoon, published on 28 November, showed President Abdullah Gül as a scarecrow in a cornfield claiming he had no control over his 16-year-old son, who has been trading in corn on commodities markets.Timuçin’s cartoon, published on 29 November, showed the president emerging from an envelope sent to an Arab prince who was protected by gendarmes while vacationing in the Turkish resort of Bodrum. The gendarmes were reportedly paid 5,000 dollars for the job. In the cartoon, Gül said to the prince: “Your excellency, here is the money the gendarmes give you, and here am I, the rose you are offered so that relations between our countries do no deteriorate.”Article 299, in effect since 1 June 2005, states: “Any insult to the president is punishable by one to four years in prison. The penalty will be increased by a sixth if the offence is committed openly, and by a third if it is committed by news media.”A government spokesman said on 24 January that “the proceedings were initiated by the justice ministry” and there was no reason why a trial should not go ahead.Kart and three other cartoonists have been the targets of prosecutions brought by the prime minister in the past two years. In these cases, the courts said the prime minister should “demonstrate generosity towards humour.” April 28, 2021 Find out more Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit Turkey’s never-ending judicial persecution of former newspaper editor News Receive email alerts News February 5, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two cartoonists face possible imprisonment because of cartoons about president TurkeyEurope – Central Asia News April 2, 2021 Find out more Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law News Help by sharing this information April 2, 2021 Find out more
