"The Shrieker" has been silenced.

Emily Harriott, a Northwestern senior known for shrieking during Wildcats basketball games, has been told to stop after the school received complaints from fans and television and radio partners following Sunday's 68-66 win over Illinois, according to Teddy Greenstein of the Chicago Tribune.

Harriott regularly meets with Heather Obering, the athletic department's director of marketing, as part of her duties as president of Northwestern Wildside, the official Wildcats student section. It was during their latest meeting that Harriott was asked to quiet down.

"It caught me a little by surprise because I've been doing it for the last three-and-a-half years," Harriott said.

Although she's no longer allowed to shriek, Harriott will continue to attend games.

"This team is a literal privilege to watch," she said.

Complaints about bears double in New Hampshire.
New Hampshire officials received about twice as many complaints about bears in 2018 than 2017, officials said. Andrew Timmins, the bear project leader for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, said there were at least 800 reports of bear-human conflicts in 2018, and that total will surely go up because not all of the data have been calculated yet. “I believe we’ll approach 1,000,” he said. That may seem like a big jump from 2017, when there were 410 reports of bear-human conflicts, but it doesn’t necessarily mean the bear population is booming, he said. “It’s more indicative of food abundance,” he said. Simply put: Bears go where the food is.
