    Better technology yields better data. The bad news is the extra water from 2003-2010 would fill Lake Erie eight times By Jason Koebler February 8, 2012 RSS Feed Print Nearly 230 billion tons of ice is melting into the ocean from glaciers, ice caps, and mountaintops annually—which is actually less than previous estimates, according to new research by scientists at the University of Colorado, Boulder. If the amount of ice lost between 2003 and 2010 covered the United States, the whole country would be under one-and-a-half feet of water, or it'd fill Lake Erie eight times, researchers say.

    Warning: This article contains sexual references that may be offensive to readers. Recently, a young Georgia Tech student wrote me an angry letter saying I had unfairly criticized some of last year’s Georgia Tech Coming Out Week (CTCOW) activities as “pornographic.” His missive contained classic liberal arguments like “Liar! Liar! Pants on fire!” and “You’re a homo!” I hope readers will trust that I am not a “homo” and that my pants are not presently “on fire.” If so, I can defend my use of the term “pornographic” in reference to at least one GTCOW event.

    A magazine cover story about postmodern life on the American college campus depicts three monkeys in cap and gown, covering their ears, eyes and mouth, a parody of the hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil caricature. But students at many colleges actually get quite the opposite. They're required to hear, see, speak and study all about evil, as long as it's the evil oppression of everybody in American society. There's an emphasis on multicultural studies and few campuses have escaped the disease, ... students study the life and murder of Tupac Shakur, the "gangsta" rapper ...There's "Queer...

    The facts are simple: Nine charges against Ward Churchill ranging from plagiarism and historical fabrication to ethnic fraud were considered by an inquiry subcommittee of CU's Standing Committee on Research Misconduct (SCRM). Of these, seven have been referred to an investigating committee for further investigation, which should eventually lead to recommendations to SCRM on Churchill's fate at CU. Only two of the allegations before the inquiry committee were not passed on for further investigation, one of which was a charge of ethnic fraud, which was more than likely the right thing to do. After all the effort we and others...

    University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill has two weeks to respond to a committee's recommendation that he undergo a full investigation for seven counts of alleged plagiarism and fabrication. The professor Tuesday called the status of the investigation against him "very encouraging," partly because two other claims — including an allegation that he falsified an American Indian identity — have been recommended for dismissal. But an expert on academic fraud said the case against Churchill sounds serious. "Any claims moving forward are serious because my sense of these proceedings is that you really make every effort to see the claim...

    University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill was awarded a 2.28 percent merit pay increase this week for work performed in 2004, a little less than his department's average recommended salary increase for professors. A statement released by CU said pay increases for Boulder campus faculty are approved by interim Chancellor Phil DiStefano and based on reviews and recommendations by committees at the department, school or college, and administrative levels. Churchill's increase was finalized Thursday. The average recommended increase for ethnic studies department faculty was 3.21 percent, according to the CU statement.

Churchill, speaking at an anti- military forum in Portland, Ore., military remarks "Conscientious objection removes a given piece of the cannon fodder from the fray," he said. "Fragging an officer has a much more impactful effect." His remarks were posted Sunday on the Pirate Ballerina blog site, which carries mostly anti- Churchill content.

His GPA: 2.88 In one class, "Topical Issues/ Native North America," 52 students gave Churchill an average of three Cs, two Bs as well as a D-plus for "accessibility." Students in his other two classes, "American Indians in Film" and "FBI on Pine Ridge" gave Churchill mostly As and Bs. The firebrand professor earned only As and Bs from fall 2002 through fall 2004.

     Did Ward Churchill use his office at the University of Colorado, Boulder, for political and personal purposes contrary to university policy and state law? This is the question posed by one of our sources, who points us to evidence that Churchill may have done just that. In 1986, Churchill had his office at the Willard Administration Center on the campus of CU in Boulder. He was not yet a professor; rather, he was involved in the American Indian Equal Opportunities Program. A scanned image available on the AIM website*, shows that at least one letter Churchill sent on Colorado American Indian Movement...

    A complaint by University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill alleging research misconduct and fraud against one of his academic critics will not be pursued by that professor's school. Churchill, whose own work is under review by CU's standing committee on research misconduct, filed a complaint earlier this week against Thomas Brown, a sociology professor at Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas. Brown is among the scholars who have accused Churchill of committing research misconduct by repeatedly writing - without factual basis - that the U.S. Army perpetrated genocide by deliberately spreading smallpox among the Mandan Indians in the Upper Missouri River...

    This newspaper devoted a great deal of space this past week probing charges of academic misconduct against Ward Churchill, and not everyone of course had time to read it all. But if you examined even two or three stories and scanned the rest, we bet you reached the same conclusion we have: There is no way the University of Colorado can permit Churchill to remain on its staff without indicting the scholarship of every other professor. If Churchill's shoddy work is not beyond the pale, then the integrity of all research at the university is in doubt. All the facts...

(AP) - University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill, whose essay comparing some Sept. 11 victims to Nazis led to an investigation into his scholarship and ethnicity, has filed a complaint against one of his accusers. Churchill's complaint to Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, accuses assistant sociology professor Thomas Brown of academic misconduct. Brown has alleged Churchill fabricated crucial details in his argument that the Army committed genocide against Indians in the 1800s. In an e-mail to The Denver Post Wednesday, Brown said Churchill...

    University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill, who has been accused of intimidating people who disagreed with him, has filed an academic-fraud complaint against one of the professors who accused him of misconduct. Churchill's complaint, alleging that Lamar University assistant sociology professor Thomas Brown committed research misconduct, arrived Tuesday. The complaint alleges misconduct in the research Thomas conducted to dispute Churchill's work. Churchill also called Lamar University's provost, the arts and sciences school dean and the chairman of the sociology department, saying he would file a complaint against Brown, said university spokesman Brian Sattler. Lamar is in Beaumont, Texas. "He was...

    PORTLAND — An early draft of a five-year "diversity plan" for the University of Oregon has drawn a firestorm of criticism from faculty, prompting administrators to distance themselves from the proposal. The draft plan, billed as a "long-term vision for diversity," called for the university to hire up to 40 faculty members by 2012 to teach courses in a "cluster" of diversity-related topics, including race, gender, gay and disability studies. Under the plan, academic departments that hew closely to the university's diversity goals when hiring would be given "priority in the funding of new positions." The plan also would mandate...

He made that declaration at the tail end of a bitter indictment of interim Chancellor Phil DiStefano's allegation Thursday that Churchill might have misrepresented his ethnic status to buttress the credibility of his work. Churchill said it is befitting of a "lunatic asylum" that a committee is being charged with the task of determining, among other things, if he is an American Indian, as he has long claimed. "I am...

He regards the war of Islamic radicals against the West in general and America in particular as a justified war against imperialism.

"My Life in Nazi America: How to live on a $95K and still be oppressed." That's if CU ever fires him. Which seems highly unlikely. But wherever you fall on this issue, you have to hand it to the university. Who knew academics were this adept at politics? They must be churning out media consultants by the hundreds.

The delay raises the possibility of restarting negotiations to buy out Churchill's contract, this time using private rather than university funds, say sources close to the university.

    Elissa Guralnick is a tenured English professor at the University of Colorado. She holds two advanced degrees from Yale and has served the university honorably for nearly 32 years. But if she doesn't sign a loyalty oath by 5 p.m. today, she says, the university promises to fire her. Never mind that she signed it three decades ago. Never mind that she's not required to sign again. This is the utter madness of the Ward Churchill hullabaloo. Churchill, the CU professor who likens 9/11 twin-tower victims to Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann, signed a loyalty oath when he was hired,...

    Nearly 200 University of Colorado faculty members have bought a full-page newspaper ad demanding that school officials halt their investigation of Ward Churchill's work. The ad is scheduled to run in Monday's Daily Camera. It calls for an end to the 30-day review of the American Indian studies professor that school officials expect to complete by mid-March. The investigation was a response to political pressure and not based on "any prior formal complaint of specific professional or academic misconduct on his part," it said. The statement defends Churchill's "right to speak what he believes to be the truth" based on...

    Transcript for Part I: Question from audience: You mentioned a little bit ago, ‘Why did it take a bunch of Arabs to do what you all should have done a long time ago,’ that’s my question. And as a white man standing here in your midst from a fairly liberal/conservative/middle of the road background—and I tell people I’m so far left I’m coming up on the rigt—and I’d like you to respond to, why shouldn’t we do something and how could we move so they don’t see us coming? Churchill: I’m gonna repeat that, tell me if I got that...

    In the days following the slaughter of 3,000 human beings on Sept. 11 by followers of Osama bin Laden, after a huge hole was ripped in the fabric of all that is considered humane and decent, University of Hawaii Hawaiian Studies Professor Haunani-Kay Trask ignored the grief of an entire nation and coldly parroted the comment of Malcolm X after President John F. Kennedy was killed: “Chickens have come home to roost.” This week, Trask was the lead cheerleader for University of Colorado Professor Ward Churchill, a man she introduced at a press conference as a “comrade” whom she has...

    DENVER—An exhaustive investigation by Bob Newman of Newsradio 850 KOA (Denver), who is also a frequent guest military & terrorism analyst on the FOX News Channel and a Men's News Daily columnist, into the genuine Vietnam service record of radical University of Colorado Professor Ward Churchill, has revealed that Churchill’s claimed combat experience is in direct contradiction to his official military records. After a confidential source provided Mr. Newman with documents pertaining to Professor Churchill’s military service and his employment at the University of Colorado, Mr. Newman began an investigation into the documents’ authenticity. Using his own sources and calling...

    University of Illinois officials said Tuesday they can't locate Ward Churchill's master's thesis and aren't sure if he was required to write one. The embattled University of Colorado ethnic-studies professor claims undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Illinois' Springfield campus, which was known as Sangamon State University until 1995. Springfield is in Sangamon County. University of Illinois at Springfield spokeswoman Cheryl Peck confirmed that Churchill received a bachelor's degree in 1974 and a master's degree in 1975. But no thesis is on file, she said. "We can't say for sure he didn't write one," Peck said. It is...

    Ward Hill as a member of the schismatic Boulder/Denver branch of AIM [American Indian Movement] as spent his whole life trashing the FBI and police. Here is what he said in his "Roosting Chickens" article. He is an anarchist who publishes his books through anarchist publishers. He wants to trash our law enforcement and intelligence organizations so that we will be destroyed. He doesn't want to make them better. He want the USA off the planet. He has often depicted the FBI and CIA as terrorist organizations.
  • Churchill panel already in his corner

    It is increasingly clear that two of the three members of the University of Colorado committee reviewing Ward Churchill's work to determine if he is fit to remain on the faculty have no business being on the panel. The most compromised committee member is Todd Gleeson, dean of the college of arts and sciences. Gleeson has delivered his judgment of professor Churchill's work on several occasions over the years - most notably in 2003 when he offered the ethnic studies professor a generous retention package. At that time he praised Churchill's teaching and "outstanding contribution to scholarship." Gleeson has also...
  • Questions DiStefano should answer: Churchill critics deserve answers to allegations

    In little more than two weeks, an academic committee headed by CU Chancellor Phil DiStefano will issue a report on whether Professor Ward Churchill's "conduct, including his speech, provide any grounds for dismissal for cause, as described in the Regents' laws." It may be the most important document they've prepared in their lives. What's at stake, potentially, is not only the professional fate of Churchill. Hanging in the balance is also the university's interpretation of academic tenure itself. Does tenure shield professors from discipline for any speech, no matter how menacing; from any written claims, no matter how false; from...

    BOULDER - A high-ranking University of Colorado official urged a faculty appointment for Ward Churchill in 1990, despite questions about his academic credentials. Less than a year later, Churchill landed a coveted tenured faculty position, bypassing the rigorous, six-year academic review that normally precedes tenure, according to CU documents. The correspondence between then-Vice Chancellor for Academic Services Kaye Howe and Dean of Arts and Sciences Charles Middleton sheds more light on how Churchill, who faces possible firing, rose in the ranks at CU. Although Churchill's scholarship is under fire now for alleged sloppiness and fabrication, CU officials in 1990 considered...

    He is inspirational or, perhaps, controversial enough to draw 1,000 mostly admiring people at a moment's notice for a speech last week. At the same time, he is so polarizing that a pair of fellow academics and several Indian leaders devoted countless hours to debunking his ancestry and his scholarship long before he became famous for demonizing the victims of Sept. 11. Today, the debate over Ward Churchill's contentious essay on the terror attacks has mushroomed into clearly divergent camps of those who find his writing, philosophy or scholarship repugnant - including families of Sept. 11 victims - and those...
