  • How did this 146-word essay on Rosa Parks get an A-? UNC football player's shocking term paper..

    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. It contains allegations that UNC athletes in danger of failing were encouraged to sign up for...

    WASHINGTON -- From time to time, I put down my duties of writing about politics and other human follies and pick up a book, often a book of poetry, often by W. B. Yeats. The other night I read Yeats' poem "The Fiddler of Dooney." It is a little masterpiece, but then Yeats wrote so many masterpieces. It begins: "When I play on my fiddle in Dooney, Folk dance like a wave of the sea; My cousin is priest in Kilvarnet, My brother in Mocharabuiee. " And on it dances for a few more stanzas, delighting the eye and the...

    (CNN) -- Early in her career as a learning specialist, Mary Willingham was in her office when a basketball player at the University of North Carolina walked in looking for help with his classwork. He couldn't read or write. "And I kind of panicked. What do you do with that?" she said, recalling the meeting. Willingham's job was to help athletes who weren't quite ready academically for the work required at UNC at Chapel Hill, one of the country's top public universities. But she was shocked that one couldn't read. And then she found he was not an anomaly. Soon,...

    The smartest genius President evah is nothing more than a carboard cutout. A fraud. Doesn't exist. We don't even know how he did in school because to this day his transcripts are sealed. Turns out now that when he was an instructor at the Chicago, his colleagues who were actual Professors didn't like him and didn't want him. Obama's position was obtained through political channels. Is the President's resume accurate when it comes to his career and qualifications? I can corroborate that Obama's "teaching career" at Chicago was, to put it kindly, a sham.

    The Sunday Times ^ | January 24, 2010 | Jonathan Leake
    The chairman of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), has used bogus claims that Himalayan glaciers were melting to win grants worth hundreds of thousands of pounds. Rajendra Pachauri's Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), based in New Delhi, was awarded up to £310,000 by the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the lion's share of a £2.5m EU grant funded by European taxpayers. It means that EU taxpayers are funding research into a scientific claim about glaciers that any ice researcher should immediately recognise as bogus. The revelation comes just a week after The Sunday Times highlighted serious...

    At the University of Chicago no man looms larger than Milton Friedman, the Nobel laureate who led the “Chicago school” of economics and who died in 2006. When the university announced plans for a $200m economics institute in May, it seemed fitting that the centre should be named after him. But a small war broke out. On June 6th more than 100 faculty members wrote to the university’s president to protest against the institute. Armed with academia’s common weapons, indignation and verbosity, they said they were all “disturbed by the ideological and disciplinary preference implied by the university’s massive support...

    The level of “academic” discourse on the Middle-East reached a new low—quite a feat considering some of the old lows—when the notorious Jewish anti-Semite and Holocaust-justice denier Norman Finkelstein wrote a screed suggesting that I be targeted “for assassination” because of my views on Israel. The obscene article was accompanied by an obscene cartoon drawn by “Latuff”, a frequent accomplice of Finkelstein. The cartoon portrayed me as masturbating in rapturous joy while viewing images of dead Lebanese civilians on a TV set labeled “Israel peep show,” with a Jewish Star of David prominently featured. The cartoon aptly represents the content...

    Last May, a Korean report in Science magazine prompted headlines around the world by declaring it had made tremendous advances in the heretofore disappointing field of embryonic stem cell (ES cell) research. It has now prompted much soul-searching in media land. “How could we have been fooled?” reporters are asking themselves in print. Well, wake up guys, because the major science and medical journals have been fooling you for years. And what appeared to be a trickle when I first wrote on it in 1999 has become a torrent. In fairness, for many submitted papers it’s quite difficult for journal...

    The fabricated evidence on human stem cells published by Hwang Woo-suk and colleagues had a life shorter than two years as scientific fact. In contrast, the infamous hominid remains of Piltdown Man announced in 1912 stood as real for nearly 40 years. Hwang Woo-suk et al.’s DNA evidence and photographs of human embryonic stem cells reportedly from a cloned blastocyst were “fabricated,” according to an international investigating panel convened by Seoul National University. The investigation sprang from questions about the cells and DNA evidence posted anonymously at Korea’s Biological Research Information Center. The SNU panel’s independent testing of evidence led...

    In our secular, post-religious society, the figure of the cassock-clad priest has been replaced by that of the white-coated scientist. Dispensing wisdom from the laboratory -- his every word is awaited breathlessly by a world thirsting for knowledge. It's all very well having secular shamans, but when they're caught cooking the holy books once too often, the faithful start to get worried. Scientific fraud, like that perpetrated by South Korean stem-cell researcher Hwang Woo Suk, is not new. Newton did it; Dalton did it; even Sigmund Freud did it. In more recent times, IQ researcher Sir Cyril Burt committed fraud,...

Churchill's complaint to Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, accuses assistant sociology professor Thomas Brown of academic misconduct. Brown has alleged Churchill fabricated crucial details in his argument that the Army committed genocide against Indians in the 1800s.

The two-month News investigation, carried out at the same time Churchill and his work are being carefully examined by the university, also unearthed fresh genealogical information that casts new doubts on the professor's long-held assertion that he is of American Indian ancestry. The findings come as Churchill is, essentially, on trial — in the court of public opinion and in the halls of academia. Prickly debates...

That is where the similarities end. The media has been in an uproar since Ward Churchill was "disinvited" to speak at Hamilton College in NY. The invitation was retracted after the public was made aware of the professor's anti-American screed about the September 11 tragedy. The University of Colorado has since started proceedings to evaluate whether Churchill should continue in his tenured position at the university. The uproar centered on...

Anderson said big-business pressure was part of her removal because her students' work often targeted companies with poor environmental records.

    Rosen: The professor must go February 4, 2005 Isn't it ironic that a man who trampled on the free speech rights of Italian-Americans marching in the Columbus Day parade, now hides behind the First Amendment to save his job at the University of Colorado? Let's make one thing clear: this is not a First Amendment issue. As an American citizen, Ward Churchill can defame the memory of Americans murdered on 9/11 and spew his brand of mindless bile without fear of legal prosecution because the First Amendment prohibits Congress from making laws that abridge his freedom of speech. But this...

    [An Phoblacht/Republican News] The limits of pacificism Pacifism as Pathology By Ward Churchill Published by Arbeiter Ring (e mail: arbeiter@tao.ca) I would recommend to republicans a new book entitled ``Pacifism as Pathology: Reflections on the Role of Armed Struggle in North America.'' It is a re-introduction of an essay written by Ward Churchill in 1984. This version includes a supplementary essay by Canadian anti-imperialist Mike Ryan, and an introduction by recently-released American anti-imperialist POW Ed Mead. I think it could be a valuable resource for republicans and their allies. Ward Churchill, who is of American Indian descent, served for a...

    "Satya" Magazine ^ | April 2004 | nwrep
    Terrorist supporter, freedom's parasite and anti-American anarchist Ward Churchill gave an interview to the Brooklyn-based "Satya" magazine. Here are some excerpts: ************************************************************** This issue of Satya is trying to push the debate about whether or not violence is an appropriate means for a desired end. With animal activists, there’s a growing gap between people who feel it’s not and others who feel that, for example, breaking into laboratories to liberate animals or burning down property is an effective way to stop abuse. Well, that’s an absurd framing in my view. Defining violence in terms of property—that basically nullifies the...
  • The Genocide That Wasn’t: Ward Churchill’s Research Fraud

    02/08/2005 7:54:20 AM PST · by freespirited · 83 replies · 14,808+ views
    Abstract: This is a work in progress that I am making available due to the current interest in Ward Churchill’s writings. I show that Churchill has committed research fraud, and very possibly committed perjury as well. This article analyzes Churchill’s fabrication of a genocide. Churchill invented a story about the US Army deliberately creating a smallpox epidemic among the Mandan people in 1837 by distributing infected blankets. While there was a smallpox epidemic on the Plains in 1837, it was entirely accidental, the Army wasn’t involved, and nearly every element of Churchill’s story is a total invention. My goal here...

Which was correct? (PRWEB) January 31, 2005 -- "There are statistical indications that a systematic, nationwide shift of 5.5% of the vote may have occurred, and that we'll never get to the bottom of this, unless we gather the data we need for mathematical analysis and open, robust scientific debate.", says Bruce O'Dell, USCountVotes' Vice President.

    “Increases in air pollution caused by cars, power plants and industry can be directly linked to higher death rates in U.S. cities, a study said,” reported Reuters this week. The Reuters reporter, I suppose, had no hope of taking the study’s results to task (as they beg to be) since she was undoubtedly hypnotized by the ostensible prestige of the journal in which the study was published— the Nov. 17 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association— the seemingly mesmerizing affiliations of the study’s authors (Yale University and the Johns Hopkins University), and the sleep-inducing nature of the...

    Kimberley Strassel (de gustibus, Taste page, Weekend Journal, Feb. 6) reminds us of historian Michael Bellesiles's discredited claim that many fewer colonists had guns than previously supposed. In Page Smith's "A People's History of the American Revolution" we learn that close to 90% of the rebel soldiers came from farms, where hunting was part of daily life. But even in towns people were armed. A British soldier looting Cambridge wrote that "even women had firelocks. One was seen to fire a blunderbuss between her father and her husband from their windows. . . ." Boston patriots, ordered to surrender their...

    BELLESILES COVERAGE: Report accuses Bellesiles of research misconductBy Andrew AckermanNews Editor October 29, 2002Professor of History Michael Bellesiles resigned from the University Friday, bringing an end to an unprecedented eight-month investigation into an Emory professor's research. The resignation was announced along with a damning report from an outside investigative committee charged with evaluating Bellesiles' scholarship. Bellesiles is the author of Arming America: Origins of a National Gun Culture, which challenges the long-held belief that early Americans depended heavily on guns. Bellesiles argues that guns were more rare in early America than previously thought, basing his claim on thousands of probate...

    An Emory University history professor has resigned after an outside academic panel issued a report condemning his research for a book that went to the heart of the national controversy over gun control. Emory officials said Friday that Michael Bellesiles' resignation is effective Dec. 31. They also released for the first time Friday the panel's 40-page report, dated July 10, and a statement from Bellesiles disputing the panel's findings. Bellesiles, who said he had enjoyed his 14 years at Emory, continued that he "cannot continue to teach in what I feel is a hostile environment." He said he will, instead,...
