  • Bill Gates known for ‘womanizing,’ naked pool parties, biographer says

    Behind his image as a straight-laced tech mogul, Bill Gates was notorious for throwing naked pool parties with strippers and being a “womanizer” — even after meeting future wife Melinda, according to a biography. The Microsoft co-founder’s wild lifestyle was well known among his inner circle — but newspapers like the New York Times hid the unflattering reports to continue getting “spoon-fed stories,” James Wallace wrote in the 1997 biography, “Overdrive: Bill Gates and the Race to Control Cyberspace.” They “didn’t report on the wild bachelor parties that Microsoft’s boyish chairman would throw in his Seattle home, for which Gates...
  • ‘An Endangered Species’: The Scarcity of Harvard’s Conservative Faculty

    The Harvard Crimson ^ | 4-9-21 | Natalie L. Kahn
    While the University has made a concerted effort across the past decade to promote gender and racial diversity among its faculty, Harvard has not made any explicit attempts to bolster representation from across the ideological spectrum. Government professor Harvey C. Mansfield Jr. ’53 is widely known on campus as the default example of a conservative faculty member at Harvard. According to Mansfield, this is not because his views possess any sort of “superiority” to others’ perspectives, but simply because a professor with his political stance is “rare” on Harvard’s campus. “Every class you enter, you have to work out your...

    A progressive friend and I were discussing higher education this morning. The topic was, of course, the political leanings of professors. She told me she thought there was a “lean” towards progressivism at most colleges but that it was likely closer to even between conservatives and progressives at elite schools like Harvard. I laughed, saying it’s probably even worse at schools like Harvard because the lifetime academia who find their way there work through a network of which I am very familiar. Only the brightest radical leftist minds can get a full-time gig as a professor at Harvard, I told...

    Not a surprise. Kirsten Clarke, Biden’s nominee to head civil rights at the DOJ, has a history of black nationalism, and sympathy for racism and antisemitism. Kristen Clarke, Joe Biden’s nominee for assistant attorney general of the United States, once promoted racist pseudoscientific quackery, arguing that the human brain was structured in a way that makes Black people superior to white people, and that “human mental processes” in the brain have chemicals that imbue one race with “superior physical and mental abilities” and “spiritual abilities.” And then there’s the antisemitism. Wellesley Professor Tony Martin spoke at Harvard at the invitation...

    According to a recent study in JAMA Network Open, Americans gained about 1 1/2 pounds every month during stay-at-home orders last year. At the same time, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 2 in 5 are struggling with mental health issues. One local researcher believes a ketogenic diet could help address both issues. Eric Rodgers was running marathons when his doctor said he was pre-diabetic. At the time, he was also taking anti-depressants. "You would lose enjoyment in things. You're not looking forward to things that you used to look forward to," Rodgers said. He...

    Mr. Pendley, a Wyoming attorney, led the Bureau of Land Management for the Trump administration. A few years ago in Casper, I sat in the memento-filled office of the late Mick McMurry, Vietnam Veteran, Midas-touch entrepreneur, and magnanimous philanthropist. As everyone in the “oil patch” knows, Mick discovered the Jonah Field—one of the largest gas province in the country—near Pinedale when he applied the decades old but not fully in its prime technology—hydraulic fracturing or fracking. He took some Bureau of Land Management (BLM) leases that had been worked over without promising results, hired the “best men I could find...

    A Harvard-educated Texas Democratic lawmaker drew double-takes for declaring at a hearing that there are six sexes, prompting a rebuke from skeptics who said his count was off by four. Texas state Rep. James Talarico made his pronouncement prior to public testimony Tuesday before the Public Education Committee on House Bill 4042, a measure to bar transgender athletes from girls’ K-12 scholastic sports. Mr. Talarico, a former English teacher, first quizzed Republican state Rep. Cole Hefner, the bill’s sponsor, on how many sexes there are. Mr. Hefner said there were two. “The bill seems to think there are two,” said...

    Senator Cruz called out Yale for discrimination Senate Democrats voted down an amendment from Senate Republicans, including Ted Cruz, John Kennedy, and Bill Haggerty. It would have barred “Federal funding for any institution of higher education that discriminates against Asian Americans in recruitment, applicant review, or admissions.” “This amendment is straightforward, it targets the ongoing discrimination that is being directed against Asian-Americans by colleges and universities across the country,” Cruz said. He specifically mentioned Harvard and Yale as “denying admission to qualified Asian-American applicants in favor of underrepresented minority groups.” Cruz said that the Department of Justice had sued these...

    Progressives are becoming more enthusiastic about using race to allocate medical resources. Two years ago, we learned the story of Dr. Lara Kollab. During 2011–2013, while an undergraduate at John Carroll University, she tweeted many antisemitic comments, including: “I'll purposely give all the yahood [Jews] the wrong meds,” and “People who support Israel should have their immune cells killed so they can see how it feels to not be able to defend yourself from foreign invaders.” SNIP Recently, ten years after Dr. Kollab's undergraduate antisemitic tweets, Drs.

    A Boston hospital says it will offer “preferential care based on race” and “race-explicit interventions” in an attempt to engage in an “antiracist agenda for medicine” based on critical race theory. A Boston Review article titled “An Antiracist Agenda for Medicine” lays out a plan from Brigham and Women’s Hospital that implements a “reparations framework” for distributing medical resources in order to “comprehensively confront structural racism."

    This week, YouTube deleted footage of a COVID-19 roundtable discussion between Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) and medical experts from Oxford, Stanford, and Harvard. The doctors and medical experts reportedly disputed Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance that children wear masks in school to stop the spread of COVID-19. Cody McCloud, DeSantis’s press secretary, condemned the move as “another blatant example of Big Tech attempting to silence those who disagree with their woke corporate agenda,” NBC News reported. “YouTube claimed they removed the video because ‘it contradicts the consensus of local and global health authorities,’ yet this roundtable was led by...

    The calls come in the wake of a speech Breyer gave to Harvard Law School students and alumni earlier this week when he warned that court packing – a term for adding seats to the Supreme Court to change its political makeup – could harm the rule of law in the U.S. "Proposals have been recently made to increase the number of Supreme Court justices. I'm sure that others will discuss related political arguments," he said. "This lecture reflects my own effort to be certain that those who are going to debate these questions ... also consider an important institutional...

    A hospital in Boston is set to offer “preferential care based on race” and “race-explicit interventions” as a part of its new “antiracist agenda for medicine.” Brigham and Women’s Hospital will implement the program, outlined in a Boston Review article titled “An Antiracist Agenda for Medicine,” later this spring. Harvard Medical School instructors Bram Wispelwey and Michelle Morse wrote that the program uses a “reparations framework” for allocating medical resources in order to “comprehensively confront structural racism.”

    A new analysis suggests Earth may have been a water world three to four billion years ago with a global ocean large enough to have submerged Mount Everest. Scientists at Harvard University examined our planet's ancient mantle and found that in ages past it was four times hotter due to radioactivity, and would therefore not be able to hold the current amount of water. 'We find that water storage capacity in a hot, early mantle may have been smaller than the amount of water Earth's mantle currently holds, so the additional water in the mantle today would have resided on...

    As evidence of what the late Professor Edward Alexander has called “the explosive power of boredom” in rousing the liberal professoriate to its ideological feet, Harvard’s own Harvard Divinity School professor of the Practice of Public Philosophy, Cornel West, recently wondered out loud why the university might have denied him tenure. His explanation: that because he is a relentless critic of Israel, and because he thinks so highly of his academic accomplishments and record, it must be his pro-Palestinian leanings that spooked the Harvard committee making his tenure decision. "This is my hypothesis,” West said, “because given the possibilities of...

    The editorial board at the Washington Examiner has a good analysis of a pending case before the Supreme Court that could turn some of the current debates over racism in America on its head. The subject at hand once again deals with the college admissions system in this country and the ham-handed way that many schools put their thumbs on the scales for all the wrong reasons. A lawsuit against Harvard is currently attempting to deal with that issue, particularly as it applies to one specific group of minorities. Through an arbitrary “rating system” used by the admissions board, Asian-American...

    A few days ago, an email from Zahra Takhshid (granddaughter of Mohammad Yazdi, former head of the Islamic Republic's judiciary) was sent to some people, and I was one of the recipients. In this e-mail, a plan for the Islamization of information technologies in the field of law, especially sharia, was proposed. This is apparently the research project of Takhshid as one of the lecturers at Harvard Law School. Harvard University, which once trained members of the U.S. Supreme Court, is at one of its lowest points today, where the Islamicization of the internet and information technology has been promoted...
