  • Academic Jargon without Kool Aid

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | May 25, 2017 | Malcolm A. Kline
    It turns out that we outsiders are not the only ones who have developed a jaundiced view of academic jargon. Insiders who don't like Kool Aid also find it inane. "Young people are now told that they must produce 'original' research to get into the best graduate schools—never mind that they’ve just arrived at college and barely know their way around the fields they might want to pursue," Elizabeth Corey writes in the Spring 2017 issue of Modern Age. "A technique called 'rapid prototyping,' pioneered by computer engineers, advocates quickly moving from initial idea to implementing without agonizing over perfecting...

    Christian Post ^ | 05/11/2017 | BY LEONARDO BLAIR
    Several Christian businesses and institutions including fast food giant Chick-fil-A, Wycliffe Bible Translators and Compassion International are featured among Forbes' 2017 list of America's Best Midsize Employers. "Each year, Forbes seeks to discover which companies operating in the U.S. today are best at making their employees feel happy, inspired, and well-compensated," the publication explained in presenting a list of top 800 employers. Partnering with Statista, a big statistics database and consumer research firm based in Hamburg, Germany, Forbes created two categories of employers. Large employers with more than 5,000 employees and midsize employers with between 1,000 and 5,000 employees. Statista...

  • Judge: Federal lawsuit against Baylor University can proceed

    HOUSTON (AP) — A lawsuit filed against Baylor University by 10 women alleging they were sexually assaulted while students can proceed, a federal judge ruled Tuesday. The women, identified as "Jane Doe" plaintiffs, allege Baylor was indifferent to or ignored claims of sexual assault and didn't enforce federal general discrimination protections. Baylor had sought to have the lawsuit dismissed, arguing the former students' allegations were insufficient to state a claim of liability and the women had failed to plausibly allege they were subjected to "further" harassment after reporting their initial sexual assaults. -snip- Pitman did dismiss claims for four of...

    A Baylor University graduate who says she was raped by football players in 2013 sued the university Friday. Her lawsuit includes an allegation that 31 Baylor football players committed at least 52 acts of rape, including five gang rapes, between 2011 and 2014 — an estimate that far exceeds the number previously provided by school officials. Those figures could not be independently verified Friday, and Baylor officials declined to comment on their accuracy. The woman, identified in the suit by the pseudonym Elizabeth Doe, reports being gang raped by then-Baylor football players Tre'Von Armstead and Shamycheal Chatman after a party...

    The Ken Starr (yes, that Ken Starr) image rehabilitation tour has begun, with Starr joining the calls for transparency from Baylor’s Board of Regents. He’s urging the regents to release the full Pepper Hamilton report into how Baylor created a culture so blind that administrators believed rape “doesn’t happen here” and so toxic that women who reported they were assaulted were put through hell. Starr’s even gone so far as to say he resigned as chancellor so he could speak more freely about what happened at the university.

    The rules of politics are being rewritten, and Republican front-runner Donald Trump is behind it. He’s released bold, undiplomatic statements and stirred up controversy, all while dominating the Republican primary race. The businessman and former “Celebrity Apprentice” host has led every Republican poll for the past two months. But as the candidate continues to sell out rallies, triumph in polls and gain supporters, some Baylor students are shaking their heads. “He’s high up [in the polls] because no one knows what his actually policies are,” said Dallas sophomore Michelle Rigg. “He’s focusing on sensational issues and making provocative claims without...

    The world's largest Baptist university, Baylor, has dropped language in its sexual misconduct policy that punished those who engaged in homosexual acts, a change the socially conservative school said better reflects its values as "a caring community." Baylor, in the central Texas city of Waco, had been one of a handful of religious U.S. colleges and universities that allowed for the dismissal of students, and sometimes staff, for homosexuality. Baylor has removed "homosexual acts" as a punishable offense in its sexual misconduct policy, an official said on Tuesday. The policy also mandated disciplinary action for sexual assault, incest, adultery and...

    Baylor University is holding a forum Tuesday after a group of freshman named their intramural team “Ferguson PD,” something school officials now say staff should not have approved. Elizabeth Palacios, dean of student development at Baylor, said the forum event is meant to raise awareness and sensitivity after the students named their football team in honor of the Ferguson, Missouri, police department, which has come under scrutiny for the Aug. 9 shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown by a police officer. The team was ordered to change its name Thursday, the day after the mishap was discovered, and the students...
