University of North Texas basketball player Eboniey Jeter committed suicide in her dorm room, according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office report released yesterday, May 8th.
She was a forward on the UNT women’s team.
The Denton Record-Chronicle newspaper states the report by Dr. Nizam Peerwani, chief medical examiner, revealed how Ms. Jeter took her own life.
The Record-Chronicle decided not to include the details of the suicide out of respect to her grieving family.
The newspaper was unable to reach family members Friday afternoon for comment.
Starkville, Mississippi. Few teams across the country – if any – are more connected with adidas than Mississippi State baseball, states the Clarion-Ledger newspaper.
The team uses adidas not just for apparel, but for gloves and bats too.
However, no one was more surprised by the warmup shirts that featured the phrase “F–K The School Up North” than Mississippi State baseball coach John Cohen.
“Somebody ran up and told me,” Cohen said. “It’s unfortunate, but I really don’t have anything (to say) in that area.”
Mississippi State will not wear the shirts again, the Clarion-Ledger reports.
The Pentagon is training a 30-person medical response team designed to be deployed nationally in case anyone else in the country is diagnosed with Ebola.
“The team will consist of 20 critical care nurses, five doctors trained in infectious disease, and five trainers in infectious disease protocols,” said Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby. He said the team was formed based on a request from the Department of Health and Human Services.
The team, which will be trained in Fort Sam Houston in Texas by the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, will help back up civilian doctors and won’t be deployed outside the United States.
“Identifying, training, and preparing forces in advance of potential requests ensures that we can respond quickly and is analogous to how we prepare [Department of Defense] personnel in advance of other potential civil support missions, such as hurricane relief and wildland firefighting,” Kirby said.
