Students blend religious views on the Interfaith Bus Tour

first_imgMadison Goforthhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/madison-goforth/ Madison Goforthhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/madison-goforth/ Linkedin Madison Goforth is a Senior journalism major from Tyler, Texas. printStudents from the TCU religious community came together Saturday February 4th for an Interfaith Bus Tour of Fort Worth.Rachel Rudberg, president of TCU Hillel, a Jewish organization, said the impact of the tour was getting to experience so many different cultures and backgrounds. Rudberg said through the bus tour, the group was able to have open dialogue which lead to a better understanding of different religions and what each religion means to each person.“I feel like most TCU students and faculty are tolerant of other religious beliefs, but no one really knows much about them,” Rudberg said. “I think this bus tour was great because it answered a lot of the basic questions most people have about other religions.”Associate Chaplain of TCU Britt Luby said the purpose of the event was to introduce students, faculty and staff to the diverse religious landscape of TCU.“Listening to the news, it’s clear that religion is a hot topic,” Luby said. “The tour gave the TCU community a concrete way to learn about people who may believe differently than themselves.”About 45 students and seven faculty members rode a bus and visited three different religious sites: Congregation Beth-El, First Christian Church Downtown and the Islamic Association of Tarrant County.Nasrallah Alkhabi, a student leader on the tour, said his favorite part of the tour was gathering with students from different backgrounds and learning that the similarity between all the religions was peace.“Religion is only for peace,” Alkhabi said. “Not for violence. Some students were surprised to find out some religions are not being represented well in social media.”For more information on how get involved in interfaith dialogue, you can go to the TCU Interfaith Initiative page.

The CoreLogic Home Price Index (HPI) Forecast Validation Report, which compares the increase in the HPI Forecast with the actual HPI results over a 12-month period, indicates that more than a decade of steady growth, volatility has entered the market, reflected in a slightly larger variation between the two HPI indicators.According to the results, with a forecasting gap of 13% above actual home prices, San Jose is one of the most volatile cities in the study. Despite the volatility, San Jose is considered “Normal” by CoreLogic’s market condition indicators, for a majority of the past four years.Nationally, the HPI forecast predicted a national change of 5.7% compared to a 3.3% actual results, a variance of 2.4%.“Long term affordability concerns coupled with consumer sentiment about the general economic climate along with other economic factors caused actual home prices to increase at a slower rate,” CoreLogic states. “This change was particularly noticeable during the spring, when the rate of home purchases tends to be higher.”CoreLogic also examined the most overvalued and undervalued metro areas. Some of the most overvalued metro areas include Miami, Austin-Round Rock, and Cape Coral-Fort Myers at 75%, 66%, and 52% overvalued, respectively. Undervalued markets include Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk, Hartford-West Hartford-East Hartford, and New Haven-Milford, at 37%, 34%, and 30% undervalued, respectively.Some of the most accurately forecasted metroes, with a less than 1% difference, were Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, Arizona; Houston-The Woodlands-Sugarland, Texas; Milwaukee-Waukesha-West Allis, Wisconsin; Charlotte-Concord-Gastonia, North and South Carolina; and Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell, Georgia. CoreLogic notes that three major metros in Texas made the top 10 most accurately forecasted metroes, however, some Texas metroes have also experienced significant slowdowns in appreciation. Austin-Round Rock, Dallas-Plano-Irving, and San Antonio all had appreciation rates of between 1% and 3% during the 12-month period, among the slowest 25 metroes.

Following criticism, NCAA upgrades weight room for women’s basketball players

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailtaka4332/iStockBy MEREDITH DELISO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Following criticism over the disparity between men’s and women’s training facilities during March Madness, the NCAA revealed an upgraded weight room Saturday for female basketball players competing in the Division I tournament.“The weight room has arrived!” the NCAA Women’s Basketball account tweeted Saturday afternoon. “Let’s gooooo.”NCAA officials apologized Friday after images and video surfaced on social media this week showing the stark differences between the women’s and men’s weight room facilities in Texas and Indiana, respectively.The women’s tournament weight room appeared to consist of a single set of dumbbells and some yoga mats, while the men’s more-lavish tournament weight room was stocked with rows of weights and training equipment.Lynn Holzman, the NCAA’s vice president of women’s basketball, promised to have improvements in place by Saturday morning.“We fell short this year,” Holzman said during a press briefing Friday.“I’ve experienced when you don’t have something that’s the same,” said Holzman, a former college basketball player. “This is also why it hit such a nerve with me. … There’s an accountability aspect as the conversation moves forward that is front of mind.”The new weight room, located inside the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, features more weights, as well as socially distanced squat racks, resistance bands and exercise balls. Areas near the center’s practice courts also have exercise bikes, treadmills, rowing machines and other equipment.University of Oregon forward Sedona Prince, who helped spotlight the disparity in the weight rooms in a viral social media video, posted an update from the new facility Saturday afternoon.“Guess what guys? We got a weight room, yeah!” Prince said in a TikTok video that included several of her teammates cheering. “Thank you NCAA for listening to us.”Some of the new equipment was already ordered or was going to be assembled just for the Sweet 16 teams, according to ESPN. NCAA officials also accepted equipment offers from companies made over social media, ESPN reported.The weight room controversy has touched on larger issues of inequality in women’s college basketball, from the difference in the number of Division I teams that compete in the women’s (64) versus the men’s (68) tournaments, to social media branding that focuses on the men’s games.“Women’s basketball is a popular sport whose stock and presence continues to rise on a global level,” South Carolina women’s basketball coach Dawn Staley said in a statement Friday night. “[It is time] for the NCAA leadership to reevaluate the value they place on women.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.
