How Trump’s Court Pick Will Tilt Abortion, Unions and Affirmative Action

  How Trump’s Court Pick Will Tilt Abortion, Unions and Affirmative Action President Trump says he will announce a Supreme Court nominee on Tuesday. Here is a look at how a court with a reinvigorated conservative wing might act. Abortion Rights Appear Secure, for NowSo long as Justice Kennedy continues to support the broad outlines of the constitutional right to abortion established in 1973 in Roe v. Wade, the addition of a new justice is not likely to make a difference.In June, Justice Kennedy reassured supporters of abortion rights on this point, joining the court’s four-member liberal wing to strike down parts of a restrictive Texas abortion law by a 5-to-3 vote.

A technical foul at the end of regulation cost the Bonnies a huge win. 

VCU may have come away with an 83-77 overtime win over St. Bonaventure, but everybody is going to be talking about how the game ended up in overtime in the first place.

Trailing by two with under five seconds to go in regulation, the Bonnies inbounded the ball to Matt Mobley under their own basket. Mobley shot-faked the defender, and hit a stepback three to put the Bonnies up one with only 0.4 seconds to go. 

Feds detail case against Orlando gunman’s widow at bond hearing

  Feds detail case against Orlando gunman’s widow at bond hearing The widow of Orlando nightclub gunman Omar Mateen admitted to investigators that she helped him case three potential locations for his mass shooting, then cooked up a cover story while her heavily armed husband set off to carry out the carnage, federal prosecutors said Wednesday. Details of the case against Noor Salman were revealed for the first time Wednesday in an Oakland courtroom, more than two weeks after federal agents arrested the 30-year-old woman at her family’s home in the East Bay city of Rodeo, where she grew up.

Then chaos ensued. St. Bonaventure was called for a technical foul for players on the bench and students coming onto the court during the celebration. VCU was awarded a free throw, and JeQuan Lewis converted to send the game to overtime.

Going into the extra frame, the momentum had shifted completely in the Rams’ favor. The Rams outscored the Bonnies in the extra frame by a margin of 17-11, and came away with a six point victory.

For VCU, this win is huge for its postseason aspirations. It keeps the Rams on pace with Dayton for the A-10 lead, and gives them another road win for their tournament resume.

For the Bonnies, this one will sting. The ambiguity of the controversial technical foul will be a hot topic among the college basketball community, but it will really sting in the St. Bonaventure locker room. A win over VCU would have given the Bonnie's a marquee A-10 win and kept them in the hunt.

Colleges Discover the Rural Student

  Colleges Discover the Rural Student Students from remote areas are underrepresented on campus. Universities want them (and their perspectives). First they have to reach them.“People don’t realize that Texas is a huge state,” said Scott McDonald, director of admissions at Texas A&M who came up with the idea of bus trips upon realizing that students from remote areas would not visit on their own. “Sometimes colleges say, ‘We don’t get many of those students; it’s not worth our time.’ ” He disagrees. Rural students bring “a unique perspective” to campus, he said. “In terms of diversity, geography is just as important as racial and ethnic.

As far as the technical goes, there’s uncertainty on whether it’s the correct call or not. Seth Davis of CBS Sports thinks it was not: 

This could wind up as a game that makes or breaks a season for both VCU and the Bonnies.


Simply stated, Gorsuch is steadfast and surprising .
The Supreme Court nominee resides on the right, listens intently to the left and often finds a homespun truth somewhere in betweenA lower court had already rejected their civil rights argument. As her lawyers prepared to appeal in 2007, they had an overarching concern: a federal appellate judge named Neil Gorsuch.
