Registered student organizations may nominate one Mr. and Ms. TCU applicant for consideration.To be considered, candidates must be rising seniors who have positively contributed to campus life. The nominees complete an online application by submitting their resume and a personal essay before being accepted as an official candidate.After careful staff consideration of their application, the finalists are chosen. These 10 men and women are then interviewed by a panel of staff and voted on by the student body.Mr. TCU 2017 finalist Morris Herman, who was nominated by Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity, said that the interview process was centered around his growth as a leader on campus, along with the impact he has made on those around him.For Herman, being a finalist was more than just a bragging right he said.“It was a great feeling to know that I’ve had the opportunity to shape this school as much as it’s shaped me,” Herman said.Similarly, Ms. TCU 2017 winner Maddie Madill felt that being selected as a finalist among other student leaders was an honor in itself.“It was such an honor to win, but it was an even bigger honor to share the experience with the other candidates,” Madill said.Madill, who grew up in Fort Worth, was aware of the Mr. and Ms. TCU tradition from a young age, but never imagined herself receiving the title. She added that even life after the crown had more surprises.“My sorority had a fun shout-out for me at our next chapter meeting and some professors and students I had not met before congratulated me, which I thought was super sweet,” Madill said.The winners for next fall’s Mr. and Ms. TCU will be announced at the Homecoming game against University of Oklahoma Oct. 20.

This starts with a bond bull market, which means that the price of bonds is high and “the higher the quality of the bond, the higher the price.”In addition, when bond prices go up, yields go down. Similarly, safe bond prices go up when interest rates go down.It is important to note that lower yields mean lower mortgage rates, and mortgage rates are directly tied to the yield of treasury bonds. Additionally, low interest rates don’t allow for refinancing, because if a borrower wants to refinance their mortgage the only thing that can happen is a lowering of interest rates.So what type of risk comes with buying a safe bond with a 4 percent yield? According to the article, “this bond would cost more than the bond will pay back when it matures.”When inflation has ruined an initial investment, then investors must look for another way to receive revenue, as this low interest rate situation “sets the stage for alternatives.”According to the report, “alternatives are ways to raise money by pledging not just assets, but also cash flows to you the lender.”However, these alternative forms of income come with some major risk, as it results in relying on “someone else’s mortgage or the cash flows” to back the money lent from a business. Today, these alternative income investments are tempting for “institutions that must deliver more income than they can get from safe investments.”Reminder: Being a beneficiary of any of these investment pools makes the risk is even higher.

The catastrophic collapses of Larsen A and B ice shelves on the eastern Antarctic Peninsula have caused their tributary glaciers to accelerate, contributing to sea-level rise and freshening the Antarctic Bottom Water formed nearby. The surface of Larsen C Ice Shelf (LCIS), the largest ice shelf on the peninsula, is lowering. This could be caused by unbalanced ocean melting (ice loss) or enhanced firn melting and compaction (englacial air loss). Using a novel method to analyse eight radar surveys, this study derives separate estimates of ice and air thickness changes during a 15-year period. The uncertainties are considerable, but the primary estimate is that the surveyed lowering (0.066 ± 0.017 m yr−1) is caused by both ice loss (0.28 ± 0.18 m yr−1) and firn-air loss (0.037 ± 0.026 m yr−1). The ice loss is much larger than the air loss, but both contribute approximately equally to the lowering because the ice is floating. The ice loss could be explained by high basal melting and/or ice divergence, and the air loss by low surface accumulation or high surface melting and/or compaction. The primary estimate therefore requires that at least two forcings caused the surveyed lowering. Mechanisms are discussed by which LCIS stability could be compromised in the future. The most rapid pathways to collapse are offered by the ungrounding of LCIS from Bawden Ice Rise or ice-front retreat past a “compressive arch” in strain rates. Recent evidence suggests that either mechanism could pose an imminent risk.

After both rescue operations were completed and the migrant vessels sunk, FGS Berlin had 245 migrants onboard.The ship, in her last day at sea as part of EUNAVFOR MED operation Sophia Task Force, is now heading towards Lampedusa Island to disembark all migrants and then proceed to Augusta harbor where she will be substituted by the German Auxiliary ship FGS Frankfurt am Main.During the last 6 months, upon request by the competent Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC), EUNAVFOR MED operation Sophia vessels have saved more than 8700 lives.The German Navy has also said that its vessels saved 10773 persons since May 7, 2015.[mappress mapid=”17625″] Share this article
The Bullingdon Club has claimed to be enjoying a revival in membership, following a desperate bid to recruit members.In 2006, the 200 year-old drinking society had only four members. In a bid to increase its ranks, it was “forced” to reach out to an ex-state school pupil. The student rejected the invitation.The club has announced that it now has twenty members.It is thought that the society’s recovery might be a result of its rebranding as the provisional wing of the Conservative party and its association with former members David Cameron, George Osborne and Boris Johnson.
