SUMMARY: The Irwin Center at the University of Texas at Austin was demolished on a Sunday morning to minimize traffic and pedestrian disruption. Dan Cook, executive director for planning, design, and construction, reported smooth execution, involving strategic structural cuts and removal of columns. The roof collapsed as expected without using explosives. Opened in 1977, the center was significant for university events and will be missed. However, efforts to preserve memories through photos and memorabilia were made. The demolition cost $25 million, under budget, with 80% of materials recycled. The site will become UT's new medical complex, set to open by 2030.

UT officials said the Erwin Center structure collapsed on itself after crews tore down the remaining columns.

Supreme Court sides with FDA in abortion pill case

Published

www.youtube.com – FOX 4 Dallas-Fort Worth – 2024-06-13 09:41:01

SUMMARY: The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of maintaining FDA approval for the abortion drug mifepristone, countering challenges from anti-abortion groups. This preserves access to a drug used predominantly in states where abortion remains legal. The court decided anti-abortion doctors lacked legal standing to challenge the FDA's approval. This ruling upholds current regulations, ensuring the drug is available up to the 10th week of pregnancy. However, further legal challenges around interstate regulation of the drug may arise. Additionally, the court faces another significant abortion-related case concerning federal and state power over emergency care regulations.

The Supreme Court issued a major ruling in a case on the FDA's rules for abortion pills. Anti-abortion groups challenged the FDA's approval of Mifepristone. The court sided with the FDA. Good Day talked to law attorney David Coale about the case.
