The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Twitter ReddIt TCU Frog Camps returning to more traditional look this summer Israel is a senior journalism and political science double major from Sinton, TX. Currently, he serves as a Managing Editor for TCU 360.

Thursday’s concert was set to serve as the grand opening of Schollmaier Arena.The cost of the concert was listed as $150,000 at the Dec. 8 meeting, which did not include venue costs, Reddick said. The bill was passed without an exact estimate.With the concert moved to the Commons, the additional funding will be used on production costs associated with building an outdoor stage, Reddick said.This is the first year that SGA has been able to sponsor a spring concert. After an alum made a donation to fund the 2012 and 2013 fall concerts, SGA used the leftover money to fund the Macklemore concert.In December, cabinet member Katie Phillips, vice president of external affairs, said Macklemore and Lewis reached out to add TCU to their tour as a result of TCU’s positive reputation in the entertainment industry.“We weighed our options and chose the duo based on who we felt would most excite students,” Phillips said. “So far, the student response has been very positive.”Phillips said Macklemore and Lewis were also chosen based on their availability, price and fit for TCU.“The agents and managers of the duo have been very easy to work with,” Phillips said. “They are excited to perform on our campus.”According to the email, the show is a “private concert open only to TCU students, faculty, and staff with a valid TCU ID.” This is a change from the policy for fall concerts, which let students bring one guest.“Given our ability to fund a spring concert this year, we decided this would be an incredible way to give back to the students,” Phillips said.This story has been updated to include a response from Student Body President Maddie Reddick.

They will be greeted by staff trained a certain way, receive documents with the same format, and observe the credit union logo throughout the building. When they go online, they expect the same experience. Developing an omni-channel experience will give credit unions the ability to keep their identity of “not-for-profit cooperatives serving members” in the middle of a digital revolution. This identity must be communicated through every channel available to financial consumers. Potential members may never step into a branch, but with a strong online and mobile presence, they may be attracted to the credit union’s brand through digital channels. Creating an omni-channel strategy to build brand loyalty will further communicate the vision of a credit union.In order to develop omni-channel experiences, credit unions should follow 6 steps:1) Build An Online PresenceConsumers trust brands. When people go shopping, they instantly determine the quality of products and services based on prior experiences. In the past, credit unions could rely on a strong branch presence within a community to build reputation. Through community outreach and exceptional service to members, credit unions would live or die by their branches. Therefore, branch design and staffing were vital investments to establish a strong brand. However, with an interconnected world brought on by the internet, people now look online for their financial needs. Credit unions must address this new channel of member-experiences and develop an online strategy to propel into the future.
The Floyd Mayweather Jr. versus Conor McGregor fight on Saturday may not have lived up to the hype as the greatest fight in combat sports history, but it provided four valuable marketing lessons. Focus on the end game.Professional sports entertains an audience, showcases the amazing potential of the human body, motivates us slobs to get up off the sofa and move, and provides lessons about how to behave in victory and defeat. But the reality is that all professional sporting events have only one purpose: to generate a profit. In boxing, that end game is especially clear, because there aren’t any seasons or regularly scheduled events. Boxing matches are entirely driven by demand, which is driven by profit. While this fight didn’t live up to its competitive hype, it absolutely embodied its other nickname: The Money Fight. Mayweather-McGregor broke records for live gate revenues, pay-per-view and live streaming, and could reach a whopping $1 billion in total revenue after all the income streams are tallied, including those 50-0 hats that went on sale as soon as the final bell rung. Yes, the fight was well publicized, but what made the card a revenue winner was that the fighters are currently the two most popular in the world, generate the most revenue and have already gone down in history as some of the best ever in their respective arenas. And, the promoters took advantage of UFC’s livestreaming, expanding the fight beyond cable pay-per-view to more than 200 countries around the world. Make it intriguing.Mayweather-McGregor wasn’t just about two great fighters facing off. That was the story two years ago, when Mayweather fought Manny Pacquiao, a match so hyped it seemed impossible to top. But this fight eclipsed the last thanks to the extra story of boxing vs. UFC, pitting fans of different sports against each other to settle a long running debate. Instead of one fighter versus another, this match posed questions like, “do boxers really punch harder than UFC fighters?” “Could the best UFC fighter in history beat the greatest boxer of his generation with only his fists?” And, at age 40, Mayweather also faced the question, “is he too old?” After all, Mayweather had retired from the sport after the Pacquiao fight, and he had come back from retirement in 2007 to fight Pacquiao. Of course, he’s announced his retirement again, but since he still holds the title belt, there’s always a chance he could fight another day. Especially if he’s guaranteed another $100 million minimum payout. Who among us wouldn’t take a punch in the face for $100 million? Expand your market.UFC popularity has exploded over the last 20 years; at the same time, interest in boxing has waned. And, surveys show a racial divide, too. UFC is most popular with white Americans, while boxing is most popular among African Americans and Hispanics. Mayweather-McGregor exposed both audiences to each respective sport in one of the greatest cross marketing promotions of all time. The hype leading up to the fight featured video clips of each fighter’s greatest moments, which was free advertising for each sport. Put on a good show.In retrospect, McGregor didn’t have a chance, and it’s no wonder. Boxing and mixed martial arts are different disciplines, and asking McGregor to fight using only one of his weapons is like asking someone to fight with one hand tied behind their back. Most people would argue that Mayweather purposely got off to a slow start to make sure fans got their money’s worth. Had he come out strong and knocked McGregor out in 38 seconds like Mike Tyson, it would have turned off UFC fans and eliminated the only logical conclusion: a profitable rematch. 107SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Heather Anderson Heather Anderson is co-founder of OmniChannel Communications, a marketing company that serves fintech and asset/liability management firms.

Jun 17, 2004 (CIDRAP News) Arizona has had 10 of the 14 human cases of West Nile virus (WNV) infection reported in the nation so far this year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said today. As of Jun 15, one case each had been reported in California, New Mexico, South Dakota, and Wyoming, the CDC said in the Jun 18 issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. The dates of illness onset ranged from May 8 to Jun 1; the case outcomes were not reported. Apr 8, 2004, CIDRAP News story “Six West Nile cases in 2003 linked to donated blood” Widespread screening of donated blood for WNV began in June 2003. At least 818 units of blood were removed from the blood supply last year because of contamination with the virus, but six cases of WNV infection were linked to blood transfusions, the CDC reported in April. So far this year, 18 states have reported dead crows and other birds with WNV infection, and eight states have reported finding WNV-positive mosquitoes, the CDC said. Birds are the natural hosts of the virus, and mosquitoes spread it to humans. CDC West Nile home pagehttp://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvbid/westnile/index.htm See also: CDC West Nile virus case count for 2004 The agency said 12 blood donors with evidence of WNV infection have been reported, including 11 in Arizona and one in New Mexico. One of these donors later experienced neurologic disease from the virus, and two others had West Nile fever, according to the report.
