    People unwilling to act on the climate-crisis narrative should be assisted with drugs that improve and promote conformity, according to eminent bio-ethicist Professor Matthew Liao, of New York University, who also wants to see parents dosing their children with hormones and diets to keep them shorter and less of a burden on the planet. He wants such people to be given the ‘love drug/cuddle chemical’ oxytocin. This would increase their trust and empathy and make them more ready to change to emission-saving lifestyles. As his peer-reviewed study puts it, “Pharmacologically induced altruism and empathy could increase the likelihood that we...

    A New York University librarian recently felt compelled to pen a blog post bemoaning the “racial fatigue” she experiences “in the presence of white people” following an academic conference. April Hathcock said that she “hit her limit” after spending five days “being tone-policed and condescended to and ‘splained to” by "white men librarians" and "nice white ladies."

    In early December 2016, Adam was doing what he’s always doing, somewhere between hobby and profession: looking for things that are on the internet that shouldn’t be. That week, he came across a server inside New York University’s famed Institute for Mathematics and Advanced Supercomputing, headed by the brilliant Chudnovsky brothers, David and Gregory. The server appeared to be an internet-connected backup drive. But instead of being filled with family photos and spreadsheets, this drive held confidential information on an advanced code-breaking machine that had never before been described in public. Dozens of documents spanning hundreds of pages detailed the...

    It turns out that multiculturalists--teachers and demonstrative students alike--cannot even expound on their area of expertise accurately. "Take hoop earrings, which date to ancient Assyria," Jonathan Zimmerman, who teaches education and history at Penn, writes in The Chronicle of Higher Education. "In Nimrud, located in present-day Iraq, there’s a depiction of King Ashurnasirpal II (884-859 B.C.) wearing thick hoop earrings." "The ancient Greeks and the Romans wore them, too; so did pirates in many parts of the Western world, who believed that hoop earrings contained healing powers or would protect them from drowning." "And, yes, hoop earrings were eventually adopted...

    Even lifelong men and women on the Left are becoming concerned about the oppressive political climate on American college campuses. Jonathan Haidt, a psychologist and professor of ethical leadership at the New York University's Stern School of Business, spoke about the roots of campus rage in light of the mob and "heckler’s veto" at Middlebury College and the University California-Berkeley. The Wall Street Journal published the interview, conducted by Bari Weiss, entitled, “The Cultural Roots of Campus Rage.” Haidt warned about this "new religion" of "true believers" in ideology. These believers "have reoriented their lives around the fight against evil,"...
  • After Middlebury College: Students Protest Charles Murray’s ‘Racism’ and ‘Classism’ at NYU

    Charles Murray was not met with riots when he showed up to speak at NYU last Friday, as he had been at Middlebury College a few weeks before. Still, his reception hardly served as a model for campus discourse. Security was beefed up, and his hosts, a student group affiliated with the American Enterprise Institute, had to restrict access to the event. A small crowd showed up to protest Murray’s presence — and to hurl insults at attendees and the university itself. In response to what occurred at Middlebury, the speech’s venue was moved to an underground room in...

    Former Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, whom President Donald Trump fired earlier this month, will join New York University's law school on April 1 as a distinguished scholar in residence, the school announced on Tuesday. In a statement provided by the school, Bharara said he was honored to join NYU, and welcomed the opportunity "to continue addressing the issues I so deeply care about - criminal and social justice, honest government, national security, civil rights, and corporate accountability, to name a few." Bharara was fired by Trump on March 11 after refusing to step down. He had been among 46...

    When people started tweeting at me about this incident, my first instinct was to question whether they could possibly be characterizing the situation accurately. I don't know why: Between this week's disgrace in Berkeley -- replete with atrocious public statements from various Democratic public officials -- and this mind-bending lowlight from last year's unrest at the University of Missouri, nothing should surprise any of us at this point. Scroll ahead to roughly the ten-minute mark and watch an "adult" NYU professor berate NYPD officers for not using physical violence against Trump supporter and Milo-esque 'alt-right' figure Gavin McInnes. Welcome to...

    According to a report by the Washington Post, some 180 federal employees have registered for training on the February 4-5 weekend in both the rights of workers and in civil disobedience. The report said that dozens of federal bureaucrats attended a support group that foments opposition to the Trump administration, less than two weeks after the inauguration President Donald Trump.    While the Post report pointed out the obvious public protests that have emerged since the beginning of the Trump administration, “there’s another level of resistance to the new president that is less visible and potentially more troublesome,” it said....

    Liberal studies professor Michael Rectenwald, the man behind the controversial @DeplorableNYUProf account, has been promoted by prestigious New York University and given a raise days after the University had put him on a paid leave for criticizing politically correct culture on campus. Michael Rectenwald was promoted from clinical professor to full time professor on Monday, a source said to the NY Post. In the initial interview with Heat Street on October 26, Rectenwald was outspoken against the current on-campus culture of social justice warriors and safe spaces. He likened academia to a mad house and claimed that “safe spaces” is...

    As demonstrators in the United States protest against recent incident in which police officers killed African American men, Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) has found a way to blame Israel. New York University's chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine shared a post on its Facebook page claiming that "the same forces behind the genocide of black people in America are behind the genocide of Palestinians." Aside from the extreme hyperbole in describing growth from 1.3 million to 12.3 million over the past 70 years as "genocide," the accusations bring to mind anti-Semitic conspiracy theories about Jews controlling the...

    NYU’s pro-Trump students fear for their safety — and grades. They may be flooding caucus rooms across the country, but Donald Trump supporters at NYU keep their heads down, mouths shut and their correspondence secret. Lying in class about their political beliefs and keeping online conversations strictly private are typical precautions taken by The Donald’s badly outnumbered followers on campus. “Supporters generally try to keep it hidden from the rest of the student body,” said junior Dylan Perera, 22. “They’re afraid of losing friends, being ridiculed in class, getting worse grades and are even afraid of being assaulted and physically...

    A professor found an easier way to study math. Unfortunately, he’s a political scientist. "I propose an alternative to mathematics, what I call numerical literacy, or for lack of a better phrase, adult arithmetic," Andrew Hacker, a professor emeritus of political science at Queens College said in an interview with the Chronicle of Higher Education. "It's the kind of thing you need to make sense of everything from corporate reports to the federal budget, or to decide whether it's better to buy or lease a car." "Despite the fact that nearly every young American is made to take algebra and...
