    div class="article_body top">Isn’t it amazing how people can make a career decrying poverty and end up collecting big bucks from taxpayers for not much work? Consider the case of University of North Carolina Law School Professor Gene Nichol, who teaches one course per semester, and pulls down almost $213,000 per year in that state-funded school, as professor and head of the school’s Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity.Add in his wife, also on the UC payroll ay the medical school and Health Care System, and this fun couple pulls down over 600k per year. The College Fix has the goods...

    Rashad McCants, the second-leading scorer on the North Carolina basketball team that won the 2004-05 national title, told ESPN's "Outside the Lines" that tutors wrote his term papers, he rarely went to class for about half his time at UNC, and he remained able to play largely because he took bogus classes designed to keep athletes academically eligible. McCants told "Outside the Lines" that he could have been academically ineligible to play during the championship season had he not been provided the assistance. Further, he said head basketball coach Roy Williams knew about the "paper-class" system at UNC. The so-called...

    Controversy has once again hit the campus of UNC-Wilmington. This time it's not my fault. The controversy is actually the fault of a student. His crime is simple: He decided to behave like a feminist behaves every day on campuses all across America. Unfortunately for him, he chose to do so without the proper genitalia and without the approval of the UNCW Women's Resource Center. I was introduced to the controversy shortly after a student of mine finished taking her final exam of the semester. After she had left my 2 pm exam, she came into my 3:30 class and,...

    Former UNC Dean Dan Plyler is like a lot of academics today. He forms strong opinions without taking the time to study an issue to determine whether his opinion is supported by evidence. Evidence is irrelevant for such academics who are more interested in preserving visions of how things should be - as opposed to evaluating how things are with some practical game plan for improving upon them. Plyler's disdain for evidence was on full display when he wrote a Letter to the Editor in response to my recent promotion to full professor. It is reprinted below with my usual...

    (CNN) -- A U.S. congressman is questioning whether the NCAA failed to hold the University of North Carolina accountable during a 2012 academic fraud investigation and is demanding answers from NCAA brass. If he doesn't get them, he'll call for congressional hearings and subpoena NCAA President Mark Emmert, Rep. Tony Cardenas told CNN. The California Democrat is referring to a probe in which the National Collegiate Athletic Association investigated UNC's system of "paper classes" -- independent studies requiring little work and no attendance. Athletes were able to get easy "A"s without actually going to class. The NCAA declined to sanction...

    An awful 146-word term paper littered with grammatical errors that is barely even readable has become a potent visual symbol of the University of North Carolina's fake classes scandal. The one-paragraph essay on civil rights icon Rosa Parks earned an A- and was exposed by former UNC professor Mary Willingham, who spent 10 years teaching UNC's athletes before she turned whistleblower on alleged classroom corruption. The shocking essay came to light during an ESPN documentary timed to coincide with the March Madness basketball competition.

    Gabriel Lugo is president of the faculty senate at UNC-Wilmington. He's generally a nice fellow with a good sense of humor. But, unfortunately, on August 9th, he sent out a wildly unprofessional memo to the entire university faculty. His memo lends credence to my concern that the UNC system has become little more than a political lobby for the Democratic legislative agenda. Thus I will soon propose that we rename our school DNC-Wilmington to reflect the fact that it is an institution committed to politics rather than honest intellectual inquiry. In a section of his memo allegedly updating them on...

    CHAPEL HILL The governing board of the UNC system voted unanimously Friday to ban campuses from letting students of opposite genders live in the same dorm suites or apartments. The decision reverses a housing policy that was unanimously endorsed by UNC-Chapel Hills Board of Trustees last year, and it comes just days before the plan was to take effect on the Chapel Hill campus. Gender-neutral housing was pushed for more than a year by UNC-CH students who said it would give some gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered students a place to live free of harassment. Opponents, though, didnt like...

One issue there is how to define which waters are North Korean.

Im living in a cabin at the base of Pikes Peak, teaching a whopping two hours per week, and starting work on my third book. But, obviously, thats not why Im angry.

The event is free and open to the public, with a speech followed by a question and answer session. Tancredo was invited by YWC last year to speak on illegal immigration, but that event was disrupted by protestors who prevented Tancredo from speaking. This speech marks the first time since that event...

    UNC-Chapel Hill students who disrupted a speech by former congressman Tom Tancredo last year say they're going to do it again. Tancredo's visit to campus last Spring was interrupted by a group of students whose protests resulted in a broken window and led campus police to shut down the lecture. They did so to rail against Tancredo's outspoken opposition to illegal immigration, the topic he had attempted to discuss that evening.

    Some people call them wiggers but I just call them idiots. I used to wonder where they learned to be so racially condescending - presuming that dressing and talking black was a cool thing to do. But now I suspect that many of them have taken a course under Maurice Martinez, an education professor at UNC-Wilmington. The class Teacher, School, and Society (EDN 200) is required of all education majors. When students take Maurice Martinez for the class they get a special treat. Maurice teaches them Black English. In 2003, he even copyrighted course materials to make white future teachers...
