NEWS: University professor discovers bacteria's new role in reducing greenhouse gases

University microbiology and molecular biology assistant professor Calvin Henard recently discovered methanotrophic bacteria can consume carbon dioxide and methane.

The greenhouse effect can potentially be reduced by feeding the methanotrophs these gases in the atmosphere. This discovery was made through Henard engineering methanotrophic bacteria to convert methane gas to bioplastics, biofuels and other valuable products in a lab.

ICYMI: Return of Tylor Perry fuels men’s basketball win over Fresno State

Men’s basketball defeated California State University-Fresno 61-52 at home on Saturday night.

The Mean Green (2-1) were coming off a 30-point loss to Saint Mary’s College of California and were ranked last in the nation for average points per game. The return of senior guard Tylor Perry, who led the team in scoring with 21 points, and junior guard Rubin Jones saw the offense score at a higher level.

“I think just us being out there gave them that extra boost of confidence,” Perry said. “Me and Rubin [Jones] do not have to score the ball all the time, just us being on the floor opens up for other people.”

Whether it’s altering dialogue or erasing entire episodes, studios can change content at any time they desire.

Altering digital-exclusive media after it is released seems harmless on a surface level. After all, one can simply grab a physical version of their favorite piece of media. Yet ultimately, these alterations prove to be nothing but damaging to how media is consumed.

SPORTS: Mooney kicking his way into the record book for football

Senior Ethan Mooney was destined to be a kicker.

After earning kicking duties on his seventh grade team at Timberview Middle School in Keller, Texas, Mooney did not look back. When his coaches tried to get him to switch to tight end due to his frame, he refused, confident that his leg would get him an offer at the next level.

“I played soccer for so long that I had a strong leg, so I figured it would be an easy job to get — I was pretty good at it, stuck with it [and] got a [personal coach] for it outside of football,” Mooney said. [The] next thing I knew I had one offer and I took it.”

Sophomore outside hitter Aryn Johnson is one of several volleyball transfers from McNeese State University.

While head coach Kristee Porter, who was formerly at McNeese State, had a major impact on Johnson’s decision to join North Texas, she said the move was based on her own goals.

“When you are undersized and a woman of color, unfortunately, people tell you what you can and cannot do,” Johnson said. “Proving people wrong, beating the odds, no matter what my height is, no matter what the color of my skin is, I can achieve anything I put my mind to.”

To be accepted, the Solar Team's car must pass several tests in the scrutineering phase, which ensures the car fits within the parameters of the competition and is safe to drive.

OPINION: Truly helpful volunteering requires mindfulness, intention

This year’s election cycle put several contentious issues on the ballot. The world is still reeling from the effects of COVID-19, abortion is no longer recognized as a human right in the United States and America’s inflation rate is four times higher than it was a year ago. There’s an overwhelming amount of social issues affecting the country today, victimizing millions of Americans.

Voting has always been advertised as a way to create change, but civic engagement doesn’t stop at the ballot. Concerned citizens can volunteer as a way to create change themselves. Volunteers must be well-intentioned, listen respectfully and be able to utilize their skills to maximize the positive impact of their work. Otherwise, this level of civic engagement can create more harm than benefit.

OPINION: Trickle-down economics doesn’t serve the public

In modern politics, it’s rare to see politicians crash and burn as quickly as British Prime Minister Mary Elizabeth “Liz” Truss”. Her predecessor, Boris Johnson, was able to weather controversy and criticism for over three years before he resigned. Truss lasted just 44 days.

While similar rapid falls from grace can be explained by s*x scandals, demonstrations of bigotry or other detestable personal behavior, Truss’ downfall was due solely to her policies. More specifically, a single proposal — the September mini-budget — triggered such an extreme backlash that even abandoning the proposal couldn’t save Truss’ premiership.

IIn a game that would have secured a spot in the conference championship game with a win, football fell to the University of Alabama-Birmingham 41-21.

North Texas (6-5, 5-2 Conference USA) could still clinch the final spot in the C-USA championship with a win over Rice University two weeks from now after a bye week. If the Mean Green lose to Rice, they leave the door open for Western Kentucky University or Florida Atlantic University to move into second place in the conference should either of those teams win their remaining conference games.

Vazques, who started studio art at 13, has always been creating, his sister, Nancy Galvon, 31, said. Galvon said being a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals student who came to the U.S. at 2 years old, the death of his mother and the trials of immigration have shaped Vazques’ art.

OPINION: The United States is facing a reading crisis

Life is somewhat returning to normal after the pandemic changed life for most people over the past two years. Stores have reopened at full capacity, mask mandates are gone and children are back in school. This return to normalcy does not undo the damages of two years in a pandemic.

Simply put, there is a reading crisis in America. Test scores and student grades show a reality that is hard to ignore. The children of America — the future of America — are not testing where they need to be. Sixty-seven percent of fourth graders read below grade level, according to the Literacy Network, and nearly 130 million American adults read below a sixth-grade level, according to the U.S Department of Education.

“We needed to be here to listen to the voices of Dentonites so we can understand what we need to do to make sure that we affirm the freedoms and rights we all deserve.”

Thanks for the spot, North Texas Daily!
Nobody is
I was featured on my Alma Mater’s page, University of North Texas! 🤗💚

I got to cover my experience at their all vegan cafeteria, called Mean Greens and talk a little bit about how much I enjoyed writing for the school paper, the North Texas Daily!

I truly feel so happy and honored I get to say that I graduated from UNT back in 2014! 🎓💜
Congratulations to the former sports editor of The Fuel, Alberto Torres, for getting published in his college newspaper, the North Texas Daily!

Folks, I was on your staff in the early eighties under the by-line Antichrist.
What a beautiful article by North Texas Daily about The Chairy Fairies, Judy C Smith and Anne Pearson, and their Orchard. The Chairy Orchard represents the eccentricity and uniqueness that is Denton, and if you’ve yet to visit we highly recommend adventuring into the magical land at 1426 Churchill Drive!
Just got the privilege of being kicked out of the Cross Roads Town Hall for the second time under threat of arrest today. Cross Roads Mayor, T. Lynn Tompkins, decided that not only could we not wear clothing that had slogans on it counter to his agenda but that if you spoke up about him telling citizens they couldn’t read their public input statements he will kick you out of the Town Hall lol.

So no free speech on your clothing and no free speech in your verbal statements either. Hell of a job on voting in this new Mayor Cross Roads..I bet he saves y’all a fortune in legal costs (probably not).

If you don’t know this Mayor is hell bent on separating/gutting the Northeast Police Department that serves Cross Roads and Krugerville all the while spending an estimated $300k more annually to provide the community a less capable Police force. True genius at work here! If that isn’t enough he and the Town Council appointed a new commissioner, Diane Bartek, immediately after she assaulted me at the previous Town Council meeting lol. Probably a good idea right?!?

Some people need to stand up against this nonsense, someone needs to speak out for our NEPD officers (and their families) who are being held in limbo, not knowing for sure whether they will be employed or not and someone needs to ensure that the people of these towns have Police services after the Mayors’ and the NEPD Commission’s wreckless decisions put us all at risk. I, can’t even see how any self respecting officer would choose to work or apply for a job in the newly forming Cross Roads PD knowing how the Mayor would gladly trade any of them for his political vision of sole control to be realized.
