    Doping is, unfortunately, a part of sport, and it happens in every country. But there is a big difference between individual cheats like Lance Armstrong and Marion Jones, and a program that is imagined and implemented by the state. A new and improved drug cocktail. Detailed schedules to ensure optimum results. And in the height of audacity, dirty samples that disappeared through a mouse hole in the official anti-doping laboratory at the Sochi Games and were handed to state security agents, who swapped them for clean urine collected before the Olympics. This is what the Russians did. At the behest...

    The temptation to cheat is as old as the idea of administering exams and writing essays. As technology continues to evolve, cheating has become easier through the use of group chat apps like GroupMe and websites like Course Hero that let students share course materials. As a result, more Ohio State students are giving in to the temptation. A Lantern review of annual reports and statistics compiled by Ohio State’s Committee on Academic Misconduct reveals a large spike in the number of reported cases of cheating over the past four school years.

    It started as one of Spain’s typical grand passing rondos, it grew over 90 minutes and then 120 into one of the biggest mountains of possession amassed since World Cup records began, and by the end it felt like this great generation of players had run out of fresh ideas. This was the remnants of the great world champions of 2010 passing the ball 1,114 times in a match but unable to score more goals than a Russia team who refused to be passed to death in the way that so many opponents have in the past. By the end...

    Affirmative action” means hiring people because they can’t do the job well. Near-synonyms are “diversity,” meaning groups that cannot do the job well, and “inclusiveness,” which means seeking people who you know cannot do the job well. These underpin American society, and have ruined education. For some time the sciences seemed less susceptible to the prevailing enstupidation because mathematics would present an impenetrable barrier to the the insufficiently bright. This, astonishingly, is changing. The sciences are being dumbed down to–are you surprised?–spare the feelings of included affirmative diversity. As a matter of observable–if, to many, unwelcome–fact, virtually all of the...

    Before the massive growth of our welfare state, private charity was the sole option for an individual or family facing insurmountable financial difficulties or other challenges. How do we know that? There is no history of Americans dying on the streets because they could not find food or basic medical assistance. Respecting the biblical commandment to honor thy father and mother, children took care of their elderly or infirm parents. Family members and the local church also helped those who had fallen on hard times.

    Republican Judge Roy Moore regained his lead over ultra-liberal Democrat Doug Jones in the Alabama senate race this week after weeks of liberal media attacks and allegations from 38 years ago. Roy Moore leads the race by 6 points in Alabama. And so it should come as no surprise that Democrats are urging out of state voters to cheat for them. Democrat activists are calling on black voters in Mississippi, Georgia and South Carolina to travel to Alabama to vote for the far left candidate Doug Jones.

    When I was a freshman in college, I thought I met the love of my life. He was cool and fun and sexy, an older frat guy who was good at beer pong and knew exactly how to make me laugh. Within weeks of our first meeting, he became my official boyfriend. Within six months, we moved in together. Another six months later and we were engaged. It was a whirlwind romance by any definition — except for the fact that I cheated on my boyfriend three times. Despite the heartache it caused, my experience with infidelity taught me a...
  • City residents react to high school test obtained by Project Baltimore: “It’s sad.”

    Project Baltimore has obtained a test given to seniors at Northwood Appold Community Academy II, or NACA II – the same Baltimore school now under investigation by city schools over allegations of grade changing that were reported by Fox45. The questions came from a final exam. The teacher who gave the test to Project Baltimore, said these questions were for a senior level course at the northeast Baltimore school. The test begs the question, are Baltimore City students being held to a high enough standard? With these questions, from different sections of the test written on a white board, we...

    Never in history has there been an NCAA investigation like the one that is (still) ongoing at the University of North Carolina. Now, six years after the initial investigation began, it appears that the school will finally have its day in NCAA Court on August 14th. The outcome will almost certainly have a huge impact on UNC and on college athletics – one way or the other. The basic premise of the investigation is this: During a period that might have been as long as 18 years (!!) dating from 1993, numerous Carolina athletes were involved in sham classes in...

But sending those emails was a mistake I will forever regret,” she wrote.

    A French court has ruled that extra-marital affairs dating website has the right to advertise its services and ruled that couples are not bound by the country’s civil code to be faithful to each other. The row began back in the winter of 2015 when French Catholics association sued Black Devine, the publisher's for extra-marital affairs dating site Gleeden, over some provocative adverts that promoted its services to those willing to cheat on their partners. "Contrary to anti-depressants a lover costs the Social security system nothing," read one of the bus stop adverts for Gleeden.  "Being faithful to two men...

    Despite Wikileaks evidence showing that Donna Brazile helped Hillary Clinton cheat against rival Bernie Sanders during the Democratic primaries by covertly passing questions to her ahead of debates, Press Secretary-Josh Earnest maintains that she has President Obama’s full support as chairperson of the DNC. “The president is loyal to his friends,” Earnest insisted. “The fact that Donna has been fired by CNN for besmirching their integrity has only stiffened his resolve to stand by her.

    Almost 7 in 10 voters nationwide say they think Hillary Clinton will win the presidency next month, but most say that if that happens, Donald Trump will not accept the results and concede, according to a new CNN/ORC poll. Americans overall are more confident that the nation's votes for president will be cast and counted accurately this year than they were in 2008. Whatever the outcome, however, nearly 8 in 10 say that once all the states have certified their vote counts, the losing candidate has an obligation to accept the results and concede to the winner.
