    A Cornell University course titled “BIPOC Rock Climbing,” was originally restricted to “people who identify as Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, or other people of color.”.. When Campus Reform contacted the school, Cornell officials edited the course description to remove the race-based enrollment restriction. Cornell University altered the course description of a racially-segregated physical education course offered to students during the Spring 2021 academic semester after Campus Reform reached out for comment. The class, entitled “BIPOC Rock Climbing," was originally restricted to “people who identify as Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, or other people of color," before its description was edited to...

    Ivy League schools have the reputation as the best universities in the nation. But, a new Cornell policy for Fall 2020 which gives people of color an exemption from the school’s mandatory flu vaccination is turning heads. How can an equal opportunity educator require only its Caucasian students to get vaccinated? Cornell Offers Exemption To Mandatory Flu Vaccination The prestigious university is requiring students to get flu vaccines. It’s mandatory, but Cornell Health is giving exemptions to people of color. Campus Reform reports that Cornell Health’s vaccine requirement FAQ reads, “Students who identify as Black, Indigenous, or as a Person...

    Although the U.S. is on a record streak for job-creation, many Americans still feel like they can't get ahead — it's not their imagination. The last three decades have seen the economy churn out more and more jobs that offer inadequate pay, a group of researchers found. "The history of private-sector employment in the U.S. over the past three decades is one of overall degradation in the ability of many American jobs to support households — even those with multiple jobholders," they wrote. The group wants to popularize a new economic metric, called the Job Quality Index, that goes beyond...

    Pentagon research project called "Insect Allies." Funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the project involves using gene-editing techniques like CRISPR to infect insects with modified viruses that could help make America's crops more resilient. If a cornfield were hit by an unexpected drought or suddenly exposed to a pathogen, for example, Insect Allies might deploy an army of aphids carrying a genetically modified virus to slow the corn plant's growth rate. According to the DARPA website, these "targeted therapies" could take effect in a single growing season, potentially protecting the American crop system from food security threats...
  • Planned Parenthood President: Abortion Gives Women “An Equal Seat at Life’s Table”

    The former president of Planned Parenthood told a crowd of impressionable young college students Thursday that abortion is essential to gender equality. The Cornell Daily Sun reports Gloria Feldt, who led the abortion chain in the 1990s and early 2000s, spoke at Cornell University during an event sponsored by Cornell Hillel. The title of her talk was “3 Truths About Sex, Power and Leadership.” Like many pro-abortion feminists, Feldt claimed that abortion (women’s legal ability to kill their unborn babies) is empowering for women as they compete with men for power. “Sex is about power, more than anything else,” Feldt...

    Not all scholars agree that the artifacts should be returned right away. "If these tablets are returned and if they are from Irisagrig, it will be a great tragedy for scholarship that they will not be published before they are returned," said David Owen, a professor of Near Eastern Studies at Cornell University. Owen has published a number of scientific papers describing tablets from Irisagrig, but has not worked with Hobby Lobby and has not studied the seized texts. "Once they enter the bowels of the Iraq Museum, it is unlikely scholars will ever have acccess to them, nor are...

    (CNN)Huddled around a corner table during happy hour at the swanky St. Regis Hotel bar in downtown Washington, five young Republicans busily brainstormed how they could help Hillary Clinton become the next president of the United States. The group included an unlikely gang of pro-Clinton foot soldiers, including a Mississippi-born Southern Baptist who got her start in GOP politics as an intern in the second Bush White House, a conservative health care policy analyst who has volunteered for anti-abortion causes and a former president of the Cornell University College Republicans. Over glasses of wine and champagne Monday night, they kicked...

    Jesse Watters crashed Cornell University to test students on their liberal “indoctrination” after a report claimed that 96 percent of Cornell professors' donations went to Democrats. However, in the middle of the regular “Watters’ World” questioning, Jesse was kicked off the campus because Cornell media relations had not granted him permission to interview students.“We ask that you don’t interview students on campus,” Melissa Osgood, Cornell’s deputy director of media relations said.“Cornell doesn’t have a problem with Fox News, does it?” Watters asked.“Absolutely not,” Osgood said.After Watters asked repeatedly, even the senior director of Cornell media relations would not budge, saying...

    Writing in the Conversation, Sara B. Pritchard, an Associate Professor of Science & Technology Studies at Cornell University, writes about the pervasiveness of "gender bias" that she claims is harming female professors in the United States. "Now that most colleges and universities have completed their spring semesters, course instructors are opening up sealed manila envelopes, all over the country, to read their teaching evaluations," she begins her article, titled, "Should female faculty get bonus points to correct for gender bias in student evaluations?" She continues, "And, like each year, what they’ll find has been pervasively slanted by gender bias." According...

    Washington — An alliance of Asian American groups on Friday filed a federal complaint against HarvardUniversity, saying that school and other Ivy League institutions are using racial quotas to admit students other than high-scoring Asians. More than 60 Chinese, Indian, Korean and Pakistani groups came together for the complaint, which was filed with the civil rights offices at the Justice and Education departments. They are calling for an investigation and say these schools should stop using racial quotas or racial balancing in admission. "We are seeking equal treatment regardless of race," said Chunyan Li, a professor and civil rights activist,...

    A recently released undercover investigative video purports to show a dean at Cornell University telling a prospective Moroccan student that the school would welcome student groups to invite ISIS fighters to conduct training camps for students on campus, but the school has since decried the video as misleading. Project Veritas, an investigative nonprofit firm that claims to expose corruption, released a video on Tuesday where one of its reporters disguised himself as a student from Morocco looking to start a "humanitarian group." The undercover reporter went to visit with Cornell's assistant dean for students, Joseph Scaffido, in his office to...

    In the latest undercover sting operation from investigative filmmaker James O’Keefe, an assistant dean at Cornell University has advised a journalist posing as a Moroccan student all about how to launch a campus club with the express intent of supporting ISIS. The Ivy League administrator, Joseph Scaffido, also provides counsel on how to fund the pro-Islamist militant club so it can send “care packages, whether it be food, water, electronics” to ISIS and Hamas — both terrorist organizations, according to the State Department. Scaffido even lays out how the club can bring an ISIS “freedom fighter to come and do...

    The Root ^ | February 17, 2014 | Travis L. Gosa, Ph.D.
    A crisis in white masculinity is killing black teenagers and, history says, the violence is likely to continue. Why are so many white men like Michael Dunn angry? Dunn, the man found guilty Saturday on three counts of attempted second-degree murder for shooting into a car full of black teenagers at a Jacksonville, Fla., gas station after an argument over loud rap music—but not convicted of the murder of Jordan Davis, the 17-year-old slain in the incident—provides some answers. Like Trayvon Martin’s killer, George Zimmerman, Dunn’s case represents the rage felt by many angry white men in America. During his...

    He was a feminine boy, averse to manual work, who was "annoyingly subservient" to superior officers as a young soldier and had nightmares that were "very suggestive of homosexual panic." The mass killings that he later perpetrated stemmed in part from a desperate loathing of his own submissive weakness, and the humiliations of being beaten by a sadistic father. What is believed to be the first psychological profile of Hitler commissioned by the Office of Strategic Services, a predecessor to the Central Intelligence Agency, was posted this month by Cornell University Law Library on its Web site (www.lawschool.cornell.edu/library/donovan/hitler/). Although declassified...
