Devin Toner may remain frustratedSupport role: Devin Toner looks set to stay on the periphery of the Ireland squadToner had a largely decent game, topping the tackle count, but he looks set to remain a peripheral figure from the Ireland XV. He’s did nothing wrong but is likely to find himself relegated to outside the match day squad next week. His problem is that Iain Henderson is undroppable and his USP’s – midfield distribution and defensive lineout – are just as capably carried out by the flanker Peter O’Mahony. A further compounding problem is that Donncha Ryan is a more obvious impact player off the bench. At least O’Connell will retire soon, eh? Tough old world… Theatre of dreams: Ireland packed out Wembley Stadium LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Tommy Bowe finds some form, Simon Zebo starts to fit the 15 role, Devin Toner to keep the support role and Richardt Strauss does a passable impression of Rory Best All smiles: Simon Zebo is proving a useful cover option at full-backSimon Zebo has played more at No 15 than on the wing in the last few weeks, and the performance graph shows plenty of volatility. Promising against Wales, poor against England but once again here, there was bags of promise. He was unlucky not to score, he appeared aware of his body position but just couldn’t get his foot of the floor before catching the ball. Elsewhere, his pass to put Earls away was to-die-for and he showed selflessness in putting Kearney away for a score. A solid day’s at the office. I’ll end this with a question. Ireland’s test number 23?Keith Earls lights it up, againAgainst Canada he produced the game’s finest moment with his floating, accurate inside pass to Rob Kearney but he had looked a little scratchy up to that point. At Wembley he was to the manor born. The arguments that he cannot pass and is blinkered must surely be put to bed now. Predatory finishes for two tries and brought some positivity to the play every time he touched the ball. The back three is competitive, especially if Robbie Henshaw is available to play 13, but Earls is likely to stay in the 11 shirt. By Whiff of CorditeWhile the World Cup ‘went off’ around them, Ireland quietly went about their business against Romania – bonus point secured, no major injury concerns and some well-worked training ground moves. And all done with the minimum of fuss. It had the finger prints of Joe Schmidt all over it – whack and bag ’em early. With the dirt trackers largely starring, most of the key takeaways were personnel ones.Tommy Bowe lives on Bowe is unlikely to displace Dave Kearney for the Italy game but it was important that a trim-looking Bowe put his Twickenham nightmare to bed, and show that he deserves to be in RWC situ while his Ulster compatriot Andrew Trimble has been omitted. This was a heartening display with two tries and some neat aerial work – and Schmidt views the latter as more relevant than the former. There is life in the old dog yet.Strong Bowe: Tommy chipped in with two tries against RomaniaRichardt Strauss has a bit of Rory Best about himThe green scrum cap caused us to momentarily forget it was Richardt Strauss on the pitch, and not Rory Best. Not only that though, the performance was pretty Best-like too. Strauss was a menace in the tight exchanges, especially at the breakdown and a dab hand in loose play too, with a couple of nice ball transfers and a big part in Simon Zebo‘s almost-try. Strauss has had a long spell in the international semi-wilderness due to injury and the continued emergence of Sean Cronin has denied him meaningful opportunities in green – it was reassuring to see him so effective.Zebo at full-back takes a positive turn

Adjuncts, who are not full-time employees, receive no benefits. A study commissioned by the Faculty Senate suggests that because adjuncts receive no benefits and have lower pay rates, they often have less motivation and availability for students. The study suggested raising adjunct pay by $1,000 per 3-credit-hour course. The resolution serves more as a “statement of principle” than a policy guideline, said Andrew Ledbetter, a member of the Faculty Senate subcommittee that worked on the resolution and the study backing it.The resolution will move to Provost Nowell Donovan for further consideration.TCU pays adjuncts between $2,500 and $3,500 per 3-credit-hour undergraduate course, which does not compete with regional and national pay averages, according to the study. Ledbetter said a student taking a 15-credit-hour course load pays about $1,350 per credit hour, which means having one student in a class covers the majority of an adjunct’s salary. “As a committee, we feel that something is awry with the economics of that,” Ledbetter said. Most adjunct faculty members are hired because of enrollment needs, the study found.“There’s too few of us as faculty,” Ledbetter said. The Faculty Senate is seeking to better fulfill two of the cardinal principles of TCU’s Vision In Action (VIA) plan, according to the study.Those principles include hiring and retaining “outstanding” faculty members and creating a learning atmosphere through “excellent” teaching, according to the VIA website. Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated terms of the Faculty Senate’s resolution regarding adjunct pay. The resolution did not recommend raising adjunct pay by a specific dollar amount.

ABC News(ST. GEORGE, Utah) — A Utah high school student, who had allegedly researched information on the Islamic State terrorist group, has been arrested on suspicion planting a homemade backpack bomb in his school cafeteria and attempting to detonate it at lunchtime, authorities said Wednesday.Classmates of the suspect thwarted the alleged bombing attempt Monday at Pine View High School in St. George, Utah, when they spotted smoke coming from the backpack and alerted a school resource officer, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.The school was immediately evacuated and the Washington County bomb squad was called to detonate the device, officials said.“They confirmed this absolutely was an explosive device and had it detonated it could have caused severe injury, potentially death and damage,” Officer Lona Trombley, spokeswoman for the St. George Police Department, told ABC News Wednesday.The device was left in the cafeteria around lunchtime Monday and there were numerous students near it, she added.“He had attempted to light the fuse so the bomb would explode,” Trombley said of the suspect.Investigators searched the suspect’s house in Hurricane, Utah, and allegedly found materials consistent with manufacturing a homemade explosive, officials said. They also allegedly uncovered evidence that the juvenile male, whose name has not been released, had researched information about ISIS and expressed interest in promoting the terrorist group.The teenager arrested in the incident is also suspected of vandalizing Hurricane High School Feb. 15, police in that nearby town said.In the vandalism incident, a U.S. flag was taken down from a pole in front of the school and graffiti reading “ISIS is coming” was spray-painted on a school wall, police said.Student Jack Whalen said he spotted the suspicious backpack, which was open and smoking. He said a friend immediately went to notify the school resource office.“I came around the corner and I could smell smoke. As I walked by, I looked inside of it [the backpack] and I could see the matches inside of it,” Whalen told the St. George News.The school of around 1,100 students was evacuated to a football stadium where the suspect was arrested.The suspect, who remained in custody today, was charged with the manufacture, possession, sale, use or attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, Thombley, the St. George Police Department spokeswoman, said. He was also charged with mischief stemming from the alleged vandalism at the school in Hurricane, she added.The investigation, with the help of the FBI, is ongoing and officials said other charges could be filed against the suspect.“It was really scary,” Olivia Jones, a senior at the school, told ABC Salt Lake City affiliate KTVX-TV. “I saw cops coming from one side and then another side and grabbed this kid that was literally like five feet from her. They were kind of aggressive with him and brought him up to the top of the stadium and they were like patting him down and searching him and stuff, and he actually ended up being the suspect.”Jones said the suspect is in her seminary class and described him as “super quiet.”“My seminary teacher was saying that before they had been evacuated, he was like hysterically laughing, which is sort of like out of the usual for him,” she added.During a news conference at the school Monday, Steve Dunham, spokesman for the Washington County School District, credited the quick response from students and school resource officers in preventing anyone from being injured in the incident. He said that since the mass shooting Feb. 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, security has been boosted at all schools in the district.“Since the incident that took place in Florida, our school resource officers have been very present,” Dunham told reporters. “We’ve had additional officers throughout all of our schools. All of the police departments that we work with have had additional officers out and around our buildings.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
ABC NewsBy MAX GOLEMBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — In the last two days there have been 14 reported tornadoes in four states from Texas to Florida. The strongest tornado was in Mississippi, just south of Hattiesburg, and it was an EF-4 tornado with winds of 170 mph and its path was 54 miles long and its width was 1 and a quarter miles. On Monday, four reported tornadoes moved through central and northern Florida producing damage through the state. On Tuesday, a new storm system is expected to move into the Northeast with severe weather possible, with the biggest threat in the Northeast being damaging winds 60 to 70 mph.Unfortunately, more severe weather is also possible for the hard hit South over the next several days. On Tuesday, severe storms will be mostly in western Texas and western Oklahoma where damaging winds and large hail will be the biggest threat. By Wednesday, severe weather should move into eastern Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and into hard hit Mississippi where tornado threats will increase as these storms move east.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Global changes in the climate, especially the warming trend in mean temperature, have received increasing public and scientific attention. Improving the understanding of changes in the mean and variability of climate variables as well as their interrelation is crucial for reliable climate change projections. Comparisons between general circulation models and paleoclimate archives using indirect proxies for temperature and/or precipitation have been used to test and validate the capability of climate models to represent climate changes. The oxygen isotopic ratio δ18O is routinely measured in speleothem samples at decadal or higher resolution and single specimens can cover full Glacial-Interglacial cycles. The calcium carbonate cave deposits are precisely dateable and provide well preserved (semi-) continuous, albeit multivariate climate signals in the lower and mid-latitudes, where the measured δ18O in the mineral does not directly represent temperature or precipitation. Therefore, speleothems represent suitable archives to assess simulated climate model abilities for the simulation of climate variability beyond the timescales covered by meteorological observations (10–100 yr). Here, we present three transient isotope enabled simulations from the Hadley Center Climate Model version 3 (iHadCM3) covering the last millennium (850–1850 CE) and compare these to a large global dataset of speleothem δ18O records from the Speleothem Isotopes Synthesis and AnaLysis (SISAL) database version 2 (Comas-Bru et al., 2020). We evaluate systematically offsets in mean and variance of simulated δ18O and test for the main climate drivers for individual records or regions. The time-mean spatial offsets between the simulated δ18O and the speleothem data are fairly small. However, using robust filters and spectral analysis, we show that the observed proxy-based variability of δ18O is lower (higher) than simulated by iHadCM3 on decadal (centennial) timescales. Most of this difference can likely be attributed to the records’ lower temporal resolution and averaging processes affecting the δ18O signal. Using cross-correlation analyses at site-level and modeled gridbox level, we find evidence for highly variable but generally low signal-to-noise ratios in the proxy data. This points at a high influence of cave-internal processes and regional climate particularities and could suggest low regional representativity of individual sites. Long-range strong positive correlations dominate the speleothem correlation network but are much weaker in the simulation. One reason for this could lie in a lack of longterm internal climate variability in these model simulations, which could be tested by repeating similar comparisons with other isotope-enabled climate models and paleoclimate databases.
