Todd Boling, the senior associate chaplain for the university, and a song performed by the TCU Concert Chorale.Provost Teresa Dahlberg welcomed the 38 new full-time faculty members to TCU and introduced the new deans of the AddRan College of Liberal Arts, the College of Education and the Mary Couts Burnett Library. “Our academic learning environment thrives with the addition of new ideas, new scholarship and new people that inspire our students and all of us at TCU,” Dahlberg said.The convocation continued with a remark from Paige Shiring, the student body president of the Student Government Association. Shiring recalled a story from her first year at TCU, when she was struggling in her first accounting course. She said she overcame this struggle with the help of her professors and peers.“To know that my professors truly cared about me drives me to put forward my best work.”Paige ShiringShe concluded by saying that TCU faculty and administrators “invest, believe and push us to reach our greatest potential. We are not a number, we are a student.”The Chancellor’s Address, a time for Boschini to share his visions and aspirations on the upcoming school year, followed. “This year, a year unlike any other, requires that we pause and reflect on who we are today, and who we strive to become tomorrow,” said the Chancellor. “How we get there will define us as a community.”He encouraged the TCU community to address issues of social injustice, work to navigate the pandemic and ensure that TCU remains a vital and sustainable university for the next 150 years.Chancellor Boschini continued by highlighting the efforts of several TCU faculty who exemplify top leadership qualities, including Dr. Miriam Ezzani, an assistant professor of educational leadership for the College of Education, and Dr. David Cross, the Rees-Jones director of the Karyn Purvis Institute of Child Development. Recently, the late Anne Marion’s Burnett Foundation, based in Fort Worth, made a $25 million gift intended to support the TCU and UNT Health Science Center School of Medicine.This year’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Award was presented to Adam McKinney, an assistant professor of dance for the College of Fine Arts.McKinney spoke on the importance of looking back on history to make meaning in the present. “We as Horned Frogs…have an opportunity and responsibility to get it right,” he said. The celebration concluded with a parting message from the chancellor, who told the TCU community that this year’s convocation is a “celebration of our culture, our traditions and of our academic community.”Convocation can be viewed on TCU’s Youtube Channel and can also be found on the Fall Convocation Experience website.

North KoreaAsia – Pacific The North Koreans claim that the two journalists, who work for the California-based web TV station Current TV (, illegally crossed into North Korea from China while shooting video along the river. Other sources deny that they crossed the border. Their Chinese guide is also apparently being held by the North Korean authorities.

North KoreaAsia – Pacific News “We call for the immediate release of these two American journalists and their guide,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We also urge the Chinese authorities to intercede on behalf of the two journalists as they were probably on Chinese soil when they were arrested.” It is very difficult for the foreign press to work freely in the Chinese border province of Jilin, although reporting rules allowing the international media more freedom were renewed last October. North Korea is ranked lower than any other Asian country on the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. The South Korean TV station YNT said the two journalists were filming on the Chinese side of the river when North Korean border guards ordered them to stop. According to the YNT account, when the journalists ignored the orders, the North Koreans crossed the river to arrest them. The South Korean newspaper Munhwa Ilbo meanwhile reported the arrest of only one journalist. The two American women journalists who were arrested at the border between North Korea and China on 17 March have been transferred by the North Korean authorities to Pyongyang for questioning.The detention of Euna Lee (who is of Korean descent) and Laura Ling (who is of Chinese descent) was confirmed by the North Korean press on 21 March. The fact that the state media reported their arrests suggested the government was directly involved.The South Korean news agency Yonhap quoted an unidentified Chinese source as saying it was probable that the two journalists were taken to Pyongyang for interrogation by North Korean military intelligence. North Korea could try to exploit the arrests politically, the agency said.A source close to the case said the US government has begun negotiations with the North Korean government with a view to obtaining their release.

first_img Community News Community News File Photo–Ani Hemelians (7) returns to the Lancers as a forward expected to help the offense in 2015.One thing was clear about the Pasadena City College women’s soccer team last season–offense did not come easy. The Lancers struggled to score goals, especially during the South Coast Conference schedule. As the 2015 season approaches, PCC head coach Reggie Rivas thinks the team should be better in that area while continuing to be a solid defensive unit.“We had injuries to our best offensive players, and really no depth at the forward spots,” Rivas said. “Right now, we have four forwards and several midfielders that we expect will bolster our ability to score. We don’t have the dynamic scorer type, but we expect to see different ladies contribute.”The Lancers return their top two scorer from 2014 in midfielder Rachel Schroeder, who netted five goals and had three assists despite an injury that limited her to 14 contests. Ani Hemelians, a speedy forward, also returns after scoring five goals, including a hat trick in a win over El Camino College-Compton Center.Alexandra Bissell, a forward is back after injuries kept her out of the lineup last year, and sophomore Elena Heuze returns as well. Rivas is excited about the additions of freshmen playmaking midfielder Sandra Ambrosio and incoming forward Alexis Acosta, an All-Rio Hondo League honorable mention as a senior. Ambrosio was an All-CIF Division 7 performer who is both a strong passer with goal-scoring ability.Veteran sophomore midfielder Leila Farazdaghi returns after last playing as a starter on the 2011 PCC team. She is one of the team’s top passers according to Rivas.PCC’s defense should again be the team’s strength with returning sophomore Michelle Morales and redshirt freshman transfer Kelly Youssef, a Pasadena Star-News All-Area honorable mention out of Monrovia High, highlighting the defender corps. All-Pacific League Second Team selection Talar Boshgezenyan (Pasadena High) and Juliana Gurule (Maranatha) are freshmen who should take starting spots to open the year.“Michelle and Kelly are two of our better players period, not just in the backfield,” Rivas said.Another key newcomer is redshirt freshman transfer midfielder Nathalie Feil, who comes to PCC via Cal Poly Pomona. Feil was an All-CIF LA City Division First Team selection who helped Verdugo Hills High win a City Section D-2 title as a senior. Known for her strong defense, she played on four East Valley League champion teams.PCC will try to replace one of the school’s greatest goalies Angelique Ulmer, who graduated after setting the school record for shutouts in a career (13) and is now playing at NCAA DIvision II Eckerd College (Florida). Monica Rogers, a freshman from Temple City HIgh, will start in goal for the Lancers in ’15. Her backup is newcomer Natalie Martin (Rosemead High).Rounding out the Lancers’ roster are sophomore midfielder Melissa Garcia, sophomore defender Margarita Munoz, considered the Lancers’ most improved player, and freshmen in defender/midfielder Jasmin Rodriguez (Pasadena High), midfielders Aubrey Subadya and Jessica Valdovinos (both from Arcadia), and Brazil product Natalia Gomes.Rivas’ coaching staff returns Heidi Strauss as the new associate head coach. The team’s new goalie coach is alumnae Andrea Otero, PCC’s all-time wins leader (23) from 1998-99.“We know we need to play 90 minutes all out every match because our power points system doesn’t give us much margin for error,” Rivas said. “Bottom line is we have to put the ball in the net enough to allow our defense to make a difference.”The team will try to break a 6-match scoreless streak dating back to last October when it opens the ’15 season on Tuesday, Sept. 1 at Santa Ana College. PCC’s home opener at Robinson Stadium takes place Friday, Sept. 4 as the Lancers host Moorpark. The Lancers don’t begin SCC play until Sept. 29 at Mt. San Antonio.
