AUSTIN — The pre-abortion drugs were kicking in, and the seven women in a light pink waiting room were coaching each other through dizziness and chills. “It’s OK, You’ve got this,” one woman said. “I’m drowsy,” said another, curled up in a comfy chair. About half of them had a blanket and a spot to curl up in at this point before the procedure. Elsa Vizcarra’s job that day was to try to interview to all of them. Vizcarra, a University of Texas researcher, spent the better part of a year sitting with nearly 600 abortion patients at a dozen clinics around Texas to understand what led the women to these waiting rooms and what barriers they faced to get there.

Don Markus Associated Press Published 10:06 PM EST Dec 13, 2018 Former Maryland coach D.J. Durkin could become the latest former Football Bowl Subdivision coach to rebuild his career at Alabama. According to a report published Thursday on AL.com, Durkin has been working with Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban’s football program in a “consultant-like capacity” for the past week. The 40-year-old Durkin was fired Oct. 31, one day after being reinstated by the University System of Maryland’s Board of Regents following nearly three months on paid administrative leave. Durkin lost his job in the aftermath of offensive lineman Jordan McNair’s death in mid-June and allegations of a “toxic” culture in the way he ran the football program during his 2 1/2 -year tenure at Maryland. Neither Durkin nor a spokesperson for Saban could be reached for comment. Durkin’s attorney, Jeffrey Klein, declined comment. Since Maryland announced Durkin was fired … [Read more...] about Thursday’s football: Durkin reportedly a consultant for Alabama
