TCU flu shot clinic vaccinates 3,500 patients

Grant McGalliard print TCU Harris College of Nursing and Health Sciences held a free flu shot clinic in the University Recreation Center on Wednesday, Oct. 7, that gave a vaccination to approximately 3,500 people affiliated with TCU.Students, faculty, staff and alumni were all welcome to receive flu shots, which were administered by students in the Harris College.Nursing major Anneliese Niederhauser said the free clinic was a success.“It went great,” Niederhauser said. “We actually ran out of flu vaccines. I think we almost do every year. We got a lot of people vaccinated, so hopefully we beat the flu.”The clinic was scheduled to run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., but students received an email at 1 p.m. saying the number of available vaccines was dwindling, and at 2 p.m. the nurses ran out of shots.Students turned out in droves to receive the vaccine, and Twitter was filled with people sharing their experience and urging others to get the shot.[View the story “Tweeting Through the Flu Shot” on Storify] Twitter Grant McGalliard is a senior journalism and political science major from Bay City, Texas.

In addition, HARP volume accounted for 5 percent of total refinance volume in the third quarter.The FHFA reported that over 3.3 million borrowers have refinanced through the HARP program, which was enacted in 2009 to help homeowners that are not able to refinance due to falling home values.The Agency approximates that over 429,000 borrowers nationwide have a financial incentive to use the HARP program but still have not.HARP refinances were highest in Florida, California, Illinois, Michigan, and Georgia, the FHFA stated.The report showed that Florida, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, and Georgia are the top five states with the most “in the money” borrowers that are able to use HARP. These borrowers could save an average of $200 per month on mortgage payments.FHFA deems borrowers to be “in the money” if they meet HARP eligibility requirements, have a mortgage balance of $50,000 or more, have a remaining mortgage of no more than ten years, and an interest rate at least 1.5 percent higher than current market rates.”FHFA is continuing its efforts to reach HARP-eligible borrowers and has held town-hall style events with local community leaders in Chicago, Atlanta, Detroit, Miami, Newark and Phoenix to get the word out about HARP,” the report stated.Those who refinance using HARP are typically have a lower delinquency rate compared to those who are eligible for the program but choose not to use it, the FHFA says.Of all HARP refinances for underwater borrowers (those with a loan-to-value ratio greater than 105 percent), 28 percent resulted in 15-and 20-year mortgages. The FHFA noted that this method helps build equity for borrowers quicker than 30-year mortgages.The FHFA cautioned potential refinancers that “HARP will sunset on December 31, 2016.”Click here to view the full report.

And, that’s just the kittens. The adult cats are in another room at the shelter.”Brockmann said the number of “adoptable” kittens and cats at the shelter is a good indication as to the importance of having cats spayed or neutered.“If you wonder, why spay or neuter, this is the reason,” Brockman said. The members of the HSPC realized the need for cages for kittens at the Troy Animal Shelter and donated the funds necessary to purchase the cages. “These kittens need a place where they can exercise and just be kittens,” Brockmann said. “We are excited to be able to provide the cages for the shelter and greatly appreciate the opportunity to support the good work that is being done at the shelter.“The shelter has cute kittens that would make wonderful pets. So, we encourage those who would like to give a kitten a forever home to visit the Troy Animal Shelter. You’ll fall in love with these kittens.”However, spay/neuter is the only true solution to pet overpopulation. Adoptions and fostering can’t keep up with this ever-growing number, Brockmann said.

Reuben Brothers seeks to foreclose on Zaha Hadid-designed One Thousand Museum

first_imgA Reuben Brothers venture that includes Fontainebleau Development recently bought out Fortress Investment Group’s stake in the loan backing One Thousand Museum. Fortress Investment Group initially provided a $225 million loan in 2016. It was eventually increased to $256 million, records show.One Thousand Museum’s developers were also seeking a $331 million condo inventory loan in 2019, ahead of the tower’s completion. Sales have picked up at the luxury condo tower in recent months. Records show four developer units have sold since January, including a $16 million penthouse.David and Victoria Beckham closed on a penthouse at One Thousand Museum last year for nearly $20 million.One Sotheby’s International Realty has been handling developer sales.Contact Katherine Kallergis Message* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Full Name* Simon and David Reuben with One Thousand Museum (Getty, iStock)One Thousand Museum, the luxury downtown Miami condo tower designed by the late Zaha Hadid, is facing a foreclosure lawsuit, The Real Deal has learned.Reuben Brothers, the London-based private equity and investment firm led by British billionaire brothers David and Simon Reuben, sued to foreclose on the remaining 15 unsold units at the skyscraper at 1000 Biscayne Boulevard, according to a filing obtained by TRD.The lender sued 1000 Biscayne Tower, 1000 Biscayne Mezz LLC, developer Gilberto Bomeny, Bank of the Ozarks, Plaza Construction and a number of subcontractors in Miami-Dade Circuit Court last week. The developers include Louis Birdman, Gregg Covin, Todd Michael Glaser, Kevin Venger and Bomeny.In a statement provided to TRD, the developers called the action “completely unexpected.”ADVERTISEMENTThe 84-unit, 62-story One Thousand Museum was completed in 2019. Hadid, a Pritzker prize-winning architect, died in Miami Beach in 2016, where she was living while designing the tower.The complaint alleges that the developers owe the balance of the mortgage, which is $82.7 million, plus interest of $379,488 as of August 18.The developers entered into three forbearance agreements between July 31 and August 17, according to the complaint. The third and final agreement was terminated in October.The developers said in their statement that their lender was “well aware that our sales team had a record-breaking year of sales, and that we are preparing to pay off of the construction loan this month.” They said they remain focused on selling out the remaining units.Read moreReuben Brothers venture buys stake in One Thousand Museum loanDavid and Victoria Beckham buy condo at One Thousand MuseumBritish billionaires invest in Jeffrey Soffer’s Turnberry resort in Aventura Share via Shortlink Tags Email Address* downtown MiamiforeclosuresOne Thousand MuseumReal Estate LawsuitsReuben Brotherslast_img read more

Contemporary and historical separation of transequatorial migration between genetically distinct seabird populations

first_imgPelagic seabirds are highly mobile, reducing the likelihood of allopatric speciation where disruption of gene flow between populations is caused by physically insurmountable, extrinsic barriers. Spatial segregation during the non-breeding season appears to provide an intrinsic barrier to gene flow among seabird populations that otherwise occupy nearby or overlapping regions during breeding, but how this is achieved remains unclear. Here we show that the two genetically distinct populations of Cook’s petrel (Pterodroma cookii) exhibit transequatorial separation of non-breeding ranges at contemporary (ca. 2-3 yrs) and historical (ca. 100 yrs) time scales. Segregation during the non-breeding season per se appears as an unlikely barrier to gene flow. Instead we provide evidence that habitat specialization during the non-breeding season is associated with breeding asynchrony which, in conjunction with philopatry, restricts gene flow. Habitat specialization during breeding and non-breeding likely promotes evolutionary divergence between these two populations via local adaptation.last_img read more

Watch Rage Against The Machine’s First-Ever Live Performance In 1991

first_imgAs the countdown clock on continues to tick, fans are still holding their breath for the slim possibility of a Rage Against The Machine reunion. While reports indicate that the announcement is a new supergroup called Prophets Of Rage, featuring three of the four RATM members with hip hop artists Public Enemy’s Chuck D and Cypress Hill’s B-Real joining the band.The supergroup certainly seems to induce excitement, but fans were really hoping that Zack De La Rocha would get back together with the group for a full-fledged reunion. RATM hasn’t performed in 2011, and they haven’t released new music since 2000; too long for diehard fans eager to experience Rage Against The Machine once again.In that spirit, we wanted to dig through the archives and pull out something truly special: the band’s first live show. Taking place on October 23rd, 1991 – a full 25 years ago – Rage Against The Machine hit the campus of California State University Northridge (CSUN) for their first ever show on The Quad. Many of the band’s critical elements, including hard rocking music and in-your-face vocals, were on display in full force for the CSUN show.Fortunately, someone had the good sense to capture video footage of this debut performance. Without further ado, you can enjoy Rage Against The Machine’s first-ever concert below.Setlist: Rage Against The Machine at The Quad, California State University Northridge, Los Angeles, CA – 10/23/911: Killing In The Name (Instrumental) @0:002: Take The Power Back @2:283: Autologic @8:404: Bullet In The Head @13:175: Hit The Deck @19:086: Township Rebellion 23:377: Darkness Of Greed @29:078: Clear The Lane @33:059: Clampdown @37:2510: Know Your Enemy (alternate version) @41:1311: Freedom @46:23last_img read more

NY Project Would Map Genes Of 1 Million To Fight Alzheimer’s

first_imgMGN Stock Image.ALBANY — Researchers would aim to map the genes of one million people living with or at-risk of Alzheimer’s disease over five years through a proposed initiative at the State University of New York.Gov. Andrew Cuomo proposed Friday to establish the SUNY Curing Alzheimer’s Health Consortium to collect and map genomic data statewide. The Democrat said the initiative will eventually provide the data to researchers working to slow the progression of Alzheimer’s.The governor says SUNY and the state’s economic development agency, Empire State Development, will seek proposals for private providers to work with SUNY, other hospitals and non-profit higher education research institutions on the mapping initiative.The Empire State Development’s life science initiative would provide $20 million in initial funding to identify and recruit 200,000 people for genetic testing. State health officials would help acquire samples and anonymized electronic health records of volunteers. More than 5 million people in the United States and millions more worldwide have Alzheimer’s, the leading cause of dementia. New York’s Department of Health estimates 390,000 individuals in New York had Alzheimer’s disease in 2017 — a figure expected to increase to 460,000 by 2025.Current drugs only temporarily ease symptoms and do not alter the course of the disease.
