A rising number of young Americans are disconnected from work, school and a sense of purpose. Disconnection rates have been increasing since the 1990s, affecting young people鈥檚 futures. Poor mental health and a lack of a financial safety net contribute to rising disconnection.鈥Ashley Palmer, assistant professor of social work, said disconnected youth fall along a spectrum of connectedness to work and school. 鈥淚 don鈥檛 think that simply being in school or working means that you鈥檙e doing OK or that you鈥檙e going to have improved well-being,鈥 Palmer said. She said that while there鈥檚 a lack of research in predicting the long-term social and psychological effects of disconnectedness, she suspects a lack of purpose can erode mental and physical health and relationships with friends and community.

The recent shooting death of a student at Bowie High School in Arlington stirred up a very real fear that exists in the minds of teenage students everywhere, according to Dr. Cheryl Hurd, professor at the Burnett School of Medicine at TCU. 鈥淭he vast majority of teenagers now in America 鈥 well over 50 percent when surveyed by a variety, including the National Institute of Mental Health, fear a school shooting at this point,鈥 Hurd said. 鈥淭eenagers know what is going on, but they also feel less empowered. They are minors and there are restrictions on them and they don鈥檛 have in their opinion access to safe things or safe places to go.鈥

Taylor Swift鈥檚 controversial song 鈥淚 Hate It Here鈥 has fans divided about the pop star鈥檚 racial lens and lyricism. Psychology professor鈥Naomi Ekas鈥痶eaches a course about the connection between psychology and Swift鈥檚 place in pop culture. She believes there are universal themes listeners have experienced in Swift鈥檚 lyrics but notes that the pop star鈥檚 particular worldview may not translate to everyone. 鈥淓veryone鈥檚 dated the bad boy and they鈥檝e had the friendship breakups and they鈥檝e, you know, crashed and burned in relationships, revenge 鈥 these are pretty common themes across humankind, but then her particular life and how she鈥檚 living them out might not connect to everybody,鈥 Ekas said.

A recent finding reported that childhood gun violence exposure was associated with gun carrying in adolescence but not as an adult. This 鈥渄ecay effect鈥 mimics human life experiences,鈥Benjamin Comer, assistant professor of criminology and criminal justice, noted to Undark in an email. 鈥淚mmediately after we have an experience, it is quite strong in our memory and seems to exert quite an effect on our behavior (in this case, gun carrying)鈥 Comer wrote. 鈥淏ut as time passes, that experience fades, and its effect on the immediate behavioral context diminishes. Indeed, other factors better explained changes in gun carrying over time, including delinquent behavior, criminal peer groups, environmental factors and personal characteristics.鈥

The Fort Worth Police Department shared a plan to increase public safety in West 7th in the wake of three shootings in the area in the last eight months, two of which were fatal. But while police say crime is down in West 7th, analysis by criminal justice experts and the Star-Telegram鈥檚 reporting on the issue 鈥 as well as the presentation鈥檚 own data for the most violent crime of all 鈥 suggest that the area is not as relatively safe as conveyed. According to criminal justice professor鈥Johnny Nhan, who also serves as a reserve Fort Worth police officer and patrols about once a week, 鈥淭here is an argument to be made that the police are sending contradictory messages: 1) Crime is high there and justifies the extra resources and 2) Crime is low there so the police are doing a good job.鈥

After more than 38 years, MedStar鈥檚 time as the designated EMS provider for Fort Worth is drawing to a close. Fort Worth鈥檚 EMS committee, which has been researching alternative models for six months, recommended that the city switch to a fire-based EMS model. Under that model, the fire department would house employees 鈥 including those currently working at MedStar 鈥 whose sole role is to respond to medical emergencies. The projected cost for the switch is approximately $10 million. Not everyone agreed with the committee鈥檚 recommendation.鈥Dr. Terence McCarthy, John M. Geesbreght MD, MS, FACEP, Chair of Emergency Medicine at the鈥疊urnett School of Medicine at TCU, said the existing MedStar system is functioning fairly well. 鈥淚f it ain鈥檛 broke, don鈥檛 fix it, and it鈥檚 really not broke,鈥 McCarthy said.

The football field has always been a sanctuary for TCU鈥痩inebacker鈥Johnny Hodges. Hodges鈥 return in 2023 was one reason the program was optimistic the defense could improve, but instead Hodges suffered an injury in the third game of the season against Houston and would play in just one more the rest of the year. 鈥淚t was tough. I think the hardest thing was just watching the team kind of reel and not be able to do anything about it,鈥 Hodges said. 鈥淚 tried to come back a little and obviously that probably wasn鈥檛 the smartest decision, but if I were to go back in time, I wouldn鈥檛 change anything. But it was tough. It was also a blessing in disguise. I got to work on a lot of things that I needed to work on that I didn鈥檛 know about. I got much closer to my lord and savior Jesus Christ first and foremost. He helped me through a lot of dark times.鈥

By 2030, we may all look back at TCU鈥檚 run to the 2022 national title game as one of college sports鈥 greatest achievements of this century.

Carter Stadium, head coach鈥Sonny Dykes鈥痠s well aware of the ever-changing obstacle course that is this job, and a standard he set. He knows he has something to prove. 鈥淔or sure, definitely,鈥 Dykes said. 鈥淲e all do in our profession, but especially the highs and the lows that we鈥檝e had here in two years. I definitely feel like I have something to prove.鈥
