    In 1976, 16-year-old model Babi Christina Engelhardt embarked on a hidden eight-year affair with the 41–year-old filmmaker that mirrors one of his most famous movies. Now, amid the #MeToo reckoning and Allen’s personal scandals, she looks back with mixed emotions on their relationship and its unequal dynamic. Sixteen, emerald-eyed, blond, an aspiring model with a confident streak and a painful past: Babi Christina Engelhardt had just caught Woody Allen's gaze at legendary New York City power restaurant Elaine's. It was October 1976, and when Engelhardt returned from the ladies' room, she dropped a note on his table with her phone...
  • Dear Tigertones, please stop singing ‘Kiss The Girl’

    [T]he song “Kiss The Girl,” from the Disney hit “The Little Mermaid,” is more misogynistic and dismissive of consent than cute. By performing the song multiple times each semester, the Tigertones elevate it to an offensive and violating ritual ... The premise ... is that the male Prince Eric, on a date with the beautiful female Ariel, should kiss her without asking for a single word to affirm her consent... Lyrics such as ... “she won’t say a word/Until you kiss that girl,” unambiguously encourage men to make physical advances on women without obtaining their clear consent... The song launches...
  • Princeton Singers Abandon a ‘Little Mermaid’ Song Over Kissing Concerns

    For many years, the Princeton Tigertones, an all-male a cappella group at Princeton University, has had a tradition while performing “Kiss the Girl,” a song written for the 1989 Disney animated classic “The Little Mermaid.” The singers call up a woman from the audience to do some lighthearted dancing. Then they do the same with a male audience member. As the song concludes, the two audience members dance together — and end the number by smooching at the urging of the singers: The last line of the song is “Go on and kiss the girl!” But last week, the president...

    Princeton to students: Be any gender or genders you want Princeton University is giving its students the option of picking a gender or, reportedly, several genders. The Ivy League’s student services interface, known as TigerHub, allows -- but does not require -- students to select one or more of the following: “Cisgender," "Genderqueer/gender non-conform[ing]," "Trans/transgender," "Man," "Woman," and "Other”. “Students use TigerHub to provide the University with personal information on a confidential basis,” a university spokesman told Fox News. “This information includes emergency contacts, their preferred name, and, if they wish to provide it in response to an optional question,...

    FULL TITLE: 'We Really Muffed The Error Margins': Global Warming Report Rendered Worthless After Scientists Point Out Flaw In Ocean-Warming Survey A major climate change report has been corrected, as two scientists found a glaring error in an ocean-warming report. The original report was alarming; oceans are warming at a rate 60 percent higher than what was first reported by a United Nations panel. The world is ending, folks. It’s The Day After Tomorrow, except that it’s not. The oceans aren’t warning at that rate. In fact, the range is so great that experts can no longer stand by their...

    President Trump is ready to announce Princeton physicist and leading climate skeptic Will Happer as his senior tech adviser. According to CNN: William Happer, a Princeton atomic physicist and prominent skeptic questioning whether humans are causing rapid climate change, is joining the National Security Council as senior director for emerging technologies, according to NSC officials. Happer, 79, is an emeritus professor of physics at Princeton who served in the Department of Energy under President George H.W. Bush in the early 1990s. He did not respond to CNN’s requests for comment. This will be both a tremendously sensible appointment and a...

    Live Action News ^ | September 4, 2018 | Joona Räsänen
    The field of bioethics seems to be less and less concerned about what is considered ethical in medicine, and more and more concerned with justifying a culture of death. It’s no longer enough for abortion to be legal; bioethicists are increasingly calling for the murder of born infants to be permitted. And though these calls for legal infanticide are always met with outrage, they continue to come. Finnish bioethicist Joona Räsänen has argued in the medical journal Bioethics that pro-life arguments against infanticide “are not convincing” and “cannot show infanticide to be immoral.” While Räsänen has not argued for infanticide...
  • Carbon Dioxide ‘Leak’ in Southern Ocean May Have Warmed Earth for 11,000 Years

    “We think we may have found the answer. Increased circulation in the Southern Ocean allowed carbon dioxide to leak into the atmosphere, working to warm the planet,” said Princeton University’s Professor Daniel Sigman, co-author of the study. For years, researchers have known that growth and sinking of phytoplankton pumps carbon dioxide deep into the ocean, a process often referred to as the ‘biological pump.’ “The biological pump is driven mostly by the low latitude ocean but is undone closer to the poles, where carbon dioxide is vented back to the atmosphere by the rapid exposure of deep waters to the...

    BET founder Robert Johnson told CNBC Friday that he believes the Trump economy has helped the African American community. Johnson, who was America's first black billionaire, appeared on "Squawk Box" to discuss the direction of the economy following the most recent jobs report. In spite of a slightly lower-than-expected number (103,000 new jobs vs the expected 193,000), Johnson was optimistic, citing a January report that touted the lowest unemployment rate ever recorded for African Americans. "When you look at that [January report], you have to say something is going right. You have to take encouragement from what's happening in the labor force...

    And not from the dwindling cadre of conservatives there. "The spring semester got off to a somewhat rocky start at Princeton University when a number of students walked out of a class in reaction to the instructor’s conduct," Princeton Professor Keith E. Whittington writes on the academe blog maintained by the American Association of University Professors (AAUP). "Lawrence Rosen, the William Nelson Cromwell Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at Princeton and an adjunct professor of law at Columbia University, was starting a class that he has offered before, 'Cultural Freedoms: Hate Speech, Blasphemy, and Pornography.'" "Apparently as has he has done...

    An anthropology professor at Princeton University allegedly used the n-word multiple times during a lecture this week, prompting several students to walk out and an expletive-laced in-class confrontation. Several students told The Daily Princetonian that professor Lawrence Rosen used the word “n—-r” when asking a question Tuesday during his anthropology 212 course, “Cultural Freedoms: Hate Speech, Blasphemy and Pornography.”

    A Princeton physicist has shared an inconvenient truth of his own--climate change models are based on an alternate reality. "And I know they don't work," Princeton University physicist William Happer says in a video produced by Prager U. "They haven't worked in the past." "They don't work now. And it's hard to imagine when, if ever, they’ll work in the foreseeable future." "In the video, Happer argues that even supercomputers used to predict the weather and forecast future global warming aren't strong enough to capture the complexity of Earth's atmosphere, including cloud cover and natural ocean cycles," Michael Batasch, who...

    More than 100 artists and academics call on the city of New York to censor public art memorializing figures they dislike. The petition sent to the Mayoral Advisory Commission on City Art, Monuments, and Markers cited the Big Apple’s professed “tolerance and equity” in justifying the censorship. The signatories include members of the faculty of Harvard, Yale, and Princeton, as well as CUNY, Barnard, NYU, and other schools located in the city. The statues the group seeks to remove include ones of Christopher Columbus and Theodore Roosevelt.

Princeton student Ryan Born argued in his op-ed for The Daily Princetonian that "when conservatives appeal to 'free speech,'" it is safe to ignore them, since "they are appealing to a right that does not exist.”

    Princeton University is looking to hire an “Interpersonal Violence Clinician and Men’s Engagement Manager” to develop programming targeting high-risk, campus-based populations for prevention of “interpersonal violence,” such as sexual harassment, sexual assault, domestic/dating violence, and stalking. The new position is designed to work closely with the campus’ Sexual Harassment/Assault Advising, Resources and Education (SHARE) office, which bills itself as a “survivor-centered, trauma-informed confidential resource on campus for the Princeton University community.” As is implicitly evident by the descriptions of these offices, the men’s program puts forth an aggressor based platform, whereas the women’s platform is victim based.

    Welcome to Independence Day weekend, New Jersey. It's a time to cast aside all the aspersions brought on by the Turnpike's industrial corridor and celebrate our proud Revolutionary War history. Simply put, New Jersey, more than any other state, was the place where the battle was fought, nearly lost, and ultimately won. With a four-day holiday weekend, it's a chance to make a historic scavenger hunt to put New Jersey's legacy in perspective. That is, if the state lawmakers can play nice on the budget impasse and get the parks they're supposed to run reopen. Here are some stops along...

    The Left's long march through the academy may be nearing its penultimate battlesite—mathematics. Up until now, it has remained so neutral in the Culture Wars that a smattering of conservatives could even be found teaching it. "On a chilly evening in March, students in Cecilia Arias's mathematics course here at Rutgers University were learning about a concept called fair division," Shannon Najmabadi wrote in an article which appeared in The Chronicle of Higher Education on April 21, 2017. "More specifically, they were considering the case of Jason, Kelly, and Lauren, three business owners who share a location in the mall."...

    State Police have arrested a Worcester man in the killing of Vanessa Marcotte, a jogger whose body was found last August in Princeton, according to an official with knowledge of the investigation. Police arrested Angelo Colon-Ortiz early Saturday morning, according to the official. He is being held at the Millbury State Police barracks on $1 million cash bail. Assault charges were filed, said Worcester County District Attorney Joseph Early. “I anticipate there will be a murder charge,” he said. “We’re very comfortable that we’ve got Vanessa Marcotte’s killer,” Early said.

    Princeton is under renewed pressure to rename an institution honoring President Woodrow Wilson after activists branded him a “white supremacist”. Campus activists made another attempt to scrub Wilson’s name from the university’s School of Public and International Affairs (pictured above) over his views on race. He agreed to re-segregate large parts of the federal government, expressed sympathy for the Ku Klux Klan and regularly worked to exclude or dissuade black people from public life. As a Vox explainer notes, although the 1910s had very different racial norms to today, Wilson’s attitude was exceptional even then. However, despite the pressure, Princeton...
