    Students at Harvard University are denouncing an alleged hate crime at the school after strips of black tape were found over portraits of Harvard Law School (HLS)’s black professors Thursday morning. But there are several aspects of the supposed “hate crime” that suggest it could be a big hoax. HLS’s Wasserstein Hall includes a small portrait of every single tenured faculty member at the school, but Thursday morning small black strips of tape were found covering the faces of every black professor’s portrait. The vandalism was discovered sometime before 8:30 a.m., when the first notices of the vandalism began appearing...

    INTELLIGENCE agents from Prague to Swansea are uncovering a trail of clues that point to President Saddam Hussein of Iraq having a hand in al-Qaedas terrorist missions. Iraqi ministers have spent the week protesting Baghdads innocence to the United Nations, but will not say why some of its diplomats who met Mohammed Atta, one of the suspected September 11 hijackers, disappeared from their European posts after that date. Nor will Baghdad explain why Saddams agents were spotted at various times this year with Atta in Germany, Spain, Italy and the Czech Republic. Many in the Pentagon are sure Saddam ...

    Where do we come from? There are many right answers to this question, and the one you get depends on who you ask. For example, an astrophysicist might say that the chemical components of our bodies were first forged in the nuclear fires of stars. On the other hand, an evolutionary biologist might look at the similarities between our DNA and that of other primates' and conclude we evolved from apes. Lisa Randall, a theoretical physicist at Harvard University, has a different, and novel answer, which she describes in her latest book, "Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs." Randall has written...

    A group of Harvard law students are calling for the faculty to drop their official shield, which they say honours a family who made their fortune through slavery. The members of "Royall Must Fall" want the emblem of the school changing from the current coat of arms of Isaac Royall. Royall, born in 1719 in Antigua, was the son of wealthy sugar plantation owners and slave traders. The family moved to Massachusetts and on the death of Royall's father, he inherited 12 African slaves -- more than any other household at the time. Royall was banished from the US after...

    A holy war of conquest and extermination is being waged against America and the West, against Christians and Jews, and against infidels generally. Iraq, Syria, Israel and the United States are among the prime targets of this war, which is being waged with a savagery by al-Qaeda, ISIS and Hamas that has shocked the world. But even more shocking than the barbarism of these groups is the fact that there are organizations on American campuses that support the agendas of these terrorists and spread their propaganda lies, and do so with the financial and institutional support of university administrations.

A group called "The National Hispanic Leadership Agenda" has written a letter to NBC objecting to the booking. MoveOn.org has organized a "Dump Donald Trump" petition drive with hundreds of thousands of leftist signatures.

    Most colleges and universities are quick to push for expanded student aid from taxpayers but forget that age-old maxim: charity begins at home. “Last year, Yale paid about $480 million to private equity fund managers as compensation — about $137 million in annual management fees, and another $343 million in performance fees, also known as carried interest — to manage about $8 billion, one-third of Yale’s endowment,” Victor Fleischer wrote in the New York Times in August. “In contrast, of the $1 billion the endowment contributed to the university’s operating budget, only $170 million was earmarked for tuition assistance, fellowships...

    If, like some of us of a certain age, you wondered where the exotic term “microaggressions” comes from, the answer is that, like many maladies that bedevil us, it started in the 1970s, and in academia, no less. “Despite microaggression’s vogueishness, the term itself was coined in 1970 by Chester M. Pierce, an African-American psychiatrist and professor at Harvard Medical School,” Matt Labash writes in The Weekly Standard. “While Pierce, by some accounts, was a well-liked, genteel scholar, not given to rhetorical excess, he did manage to anticipate our present Cocked Fist Culture when writing, ‘Every child in America entering...

    Nature ^ | Tuesday, October 20, 2015 | Andrew Robinson
    Whatever their differences, all Indus researchers agree that there is no consensus on the meaning of the script. There are three main problems. First, no firm information is available about its underlying language. Was this an ancestor of Sanskrit or Dravidian, or of some other Indian language family, such as Munda, or was it a language that has disappeared? Linear B was deciphered because the tablets turned out to be in an archaic form of Greek; Mayan glyphs because Mayan languages are still spoken. Second, no names of Indus rulers or personages are known from myths or historical records: no...

The security policy community is especially eager for an answer.

The chief explanation for this relationship is that higher temperatures...

In 1960, they accounted for less than 1 percent of the U.S. population but had a rich history of persecution -- from the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882 to the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II. Back then, no one could have imagined what lay ahead. Today, nearly 5 percent of Americans have Asian ancestry, tracing to countries from India to Japan.

Last month, Yale Law School Dean Harold Koh, along with a team of foreign law experts, submitted an amicus brief urging the Supreme Court to join the emerging global consensus for same-sex marriage essentially arguing that since most countries in the world are jumping off this moral cliff, why shouldnt we? If that philosophy which most of our mothers warned us against as children wasnt weak enough, they also need to dust off their World Book...

    Sorry, but a totally safe space is actually impossible. A student at Harvard University published an op-ed on Wednesday complaining that her schools safe spaces are just not safe enough. According to Madison E. Johnson, her time spent in the safe space was really great at first there were massage circles, deep conversations, and times explicitly delineated for processing and journaling. But then it all changed.

    Presidential candidate Ted Cruz loved to argue as a Harvard student and boasted he'd get the best grades in his class, only to lose out to two other classmates. In a series of exclusive interviews with Metro, several of his former classmates painted a complex portrait of the Tea Party's most beloved presidential candidate. Laurence Tribe, a longtime Harvard law professor, said Cruz took his constitutional law class, challenged his teacher in interesting and "invariably right-leaning" ways at every turn. Tribe said Cruz bragged to many of his classmates that he would receive the highest grade in the class, which...

    In what was no doubt a rare moment for all involved, Huffington Post editorial director Howard Fineman noted on MSNBCs Hardball w/ Chris Matthews that Harvard Law School professors were in awe of Texas Republican Senator and presidential candidate Ted Cruzs intellect. At Harvard Law School, he was the professors were in awe of his intellect, Fineman noted. Even if they disagreed with him, which they did vehemently, these people knew that this guy was trained under the Federalist Society second-generation Republican wave. In other words, not the Reagan years, but these years. The rare complement from the...

    The Examiner ^ | 27 Jan 15
    During Barack Obama's recent State of the Union speech, he told America he had no more campaigns to run. But it seems that statement flies in the face of reports that an organization known as One Voice has brought in what has been called a "five-man Obama team" to defeat Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Included in that five-man team is Jeremy Bird, the national field director for Obama's 2012 campaign, Dr. Aaron Lerner, Director of the Independent Media Review and Analysis, said Monday, citing a report at Haaretz. That group, Dr. Lerner added, will run the anti-Netanyahu effort out...

    Off to try to defeat Nethanyahu, Obama advisor Jeremy C. Bird once worked for an anti-Israel activist condemned by the Anti-Defamation League. Bird, then a student at Harvards Divinity School, worked for Edmund Hanauer, one of Americas most prominent anti-Israel activists, in 2002. Bird worked for Hanaeuer while Hanaeuer wrote a virulently anti-Israel op-ed that accused Israel of state terrorism and war crimes, and called for the arrest and prosecution of Israeli soldiers. Bird and Hanaeur also attacked Israel in speeches. Hanauer showed an anti-Israel film to a Harvard audience and gave a speech at Harvard in 2002. Bird also...

    Boston, Mass Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., son of the late senator and nephew of the late president, told an audience in Cambridge, Mass. Monday that President Bush has brought fascism to America. Kennedy appeared at a forum, "Books, Politics, and the Culture War," sponsored by the Harvard Book Store and the Progressive Book Club. A longtime environmentalist, he delivered an extended criticism of the Bush administration's environmental policies before alleging that the president has, in effect, created a fascist system of government in America. "I was taught that Communism leads to dictatorship and that capitalism leads to democracy," Kennedy...

    For generations, books, films, and TV have warned us of the danger of mummies. In their crypts they are relatively harmless, but when they rise from the dead and start strangling people, as they did in the Cotswolds of south central England in Doctor Who and the Pyramids of Mars, they become a much greater threat. But this problem may shortly be solved, thanks to global warming. The worlds oldest mummies are at risk of disappearing because of man-made climate change, according to a group of Harvard University scientists. Bodies mummified about 7,000 years ago in Chile are starting to...

    Molly McGaan didnt reference her proficiency in dank memes or her wealth of $wagg moneyyyy when she applied to Harvard. But as admissions season ramped up along with the high school seniors anxiety level she tried to imagine what would have happened if she had. McGaan, who attends the Francis W. Parker School in Chicago, created a faux Harvard University rejection letter that was widely circulated online this week, full of references to hip-hop mix tapes and Internet memes. The 18-year-old, who really applied to Harvard, thought the joke was obvious enough. The letter, which has the name...

    Harvard officials say they have notified members of the university community that an unidentified man came to the Kennedy School of Government on Tuesday who said he was soliciting donations for a charity connected to the Islamic State militant group. At this time there does not appear to be a threat to the community, but we felt that it was important to notify members of our community. We have also notified the Harvard University Police Department, the university said Friday in an e-mailed statement. He has not been seen on the campus since that time, the
