    The University of Maryland law school will offer a course this upcoming semester on the arrest and resulting death of Freddie Gray, a black Baltimore resident whose death led to protests and unrest across the city. Forty UMD students are enrolled in the course — called "Freddie Gray's Baltimore: Past, Present, and Moving Forward" — which will run for eight classes and be taught by law professors, as well as city officials. The law school announced the course Tuesday, and it already appears to have filled up. Gray's death and the following unrest in Baltimore, the course's description states, "have...

    As the U.S. Senate took up a bill to provide financial aid to Ukraine, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, rose to object to an IMF bailout Majority Leader Harry Reid attached to the legislation. In the process he blasted Reid for repeatedly demonizing the billionaire Koch brothers - Reid tried to blame the Koch brothers for halting progress on the Ukraine bill. "I'm beginning to think [the Koch brothers] are a character almost out of Dr. Seuss in the majority leader's mind, they are the grinch who stole Christmas in his telling," Cruz said. Cruz accused Reid of "using his...

    Secretary of State John Kerry warned of serious repercussions for Russia on Monday if last-ditch talks over the weekend to resolve the crisis in Ukraine failed to persuade Moscow to soften its stance. Kerry will travel to London for a Friday meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov ahead of a Sunday referendum vote in the Crimea region to secede from Ukraine and join the Russian Federation. U.S. and European officials argue that Moscow is orchestrating the referendum and waging an intimidation campaign with thousands of Russian troops controlling the region. If Russian-backed lawmakers in Crimea go through with the...

    A California college has invited a speaker to teach students that eating meat is misogynistic, and that our society degrades fish because "we don't view them as individuals." The lecture, titled "The Sexual Politics of Meat," will take place at the University of Redlands on Monday, and is to explore the "relationship between patriarchal values and meat eating by interweaving the insights of feminism, vegetarianism, animal defense, and literary theory," according to the official website of the speaker, Carol J. Adams. The lecture will be based on a book she wrote by the same name, which explores "the hidden connections...

    One of Obama's preferred golf courses, the course on Andrews Airforce Base remains open during the government shutdown. The grocery stores on the base, where troops get discounted groceries for their families are, however, closed. They will shop "at local stores that cost about 30 percent more, Lieutenant General Raymond Mason, the service’s deputy chief of staff for logistics, said yesterday at a House hearing."

    (CNN) — Nearly a month after forced spending cuts prompted some Republicans to call on President Barack Obama to cease his weekend golf outings, the commander-in-chief returned to the links for a springtime round Saturday. **SNIP** “The president will use up more Secret Service time guarding him while he golfs than it would take to keep the White House tours open all year,” Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker, said earlier this month on CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.” Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, submitted legislation which would make it illegal for Obama to use federal funds for commuting...

    Over half of Harvard University students caught in a wide-ranging cheating scandal in an "Intro to Congress" course have reportedly had to withdraw from the Ivy League school. According to The Boston Globe, the dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences told the Harvard community in an email that more than half of the students brought before the school's Administration Board in the fall were required to withdraw for some period of time. Of the students not required to withdraw, roughly half were placed on disciplinary probation, while the rest received no punishment and had their cases dismissed. While...

    STEUBENVILLE, Ohio — A group of gay university alumni and allies is challenging the Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, over its inclusion of homosexuality in its course on “deviant behavior.” The group, Gay Alumni and Allies of Catholic Universities, said that Franciscan University, a conservative Catholic institution on the Ohio-West Virginia border, is “contributing” to a “culture of hate and ignorance” by teaching “ideological falsehoods in the classroom rather than solid, proven research and evidence.” But according to the University, the principles of academic freedom apply to the course and that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.” At issue is this...

    A mighty sea, on right and left, or starboard-port you see The waves not high, the wind just swift, seems satisfactory. But straight ahead, the sky is dark, and from the sky are bolts The clouds are turning darker still, the horizon terror coats. The barque is tossed, the wind is sharp, the sea turns to a stew. The hands take hold, the feet are braced, by passengers and crew. Why fret this course, we’ve chosen here, we sail complacently, Why question now, our past provides, we’ll arrive assuredly. Ah yes! for sure, a sigh is let, from all...

His course at Georgetown University, “Sociology of Hip Hop: Jay-Z," has been both looked down upon and praised by his peers. He recently spoke to the Sun Times in Chicago on what Jay-Z represents to American culture. “It just happens to have an interesting object of engagement in Jay-Z — and what better way to meet people where they are?” Dyson said. “It’s like Jesus talking to the woman at the well.

    Traffic on route A1A is sluggish today, just like the economy here on Florida's Atlantic coast, south of Cape Canaveral. The state's unemployment rate is reported to be 12 percent, but people around here say they cannot believe it is that low. People are hurting here, just as they are around the country, but in the seaside towns around the Kennedy Space Center, they have extra reason. NASA is winding down the space shuttle program, which has employed thousands of people around here for 30 years -- and the Obama administration has canceled the program that would have come after...

    Like putting a fox in charge of a chicken coop, Seton Hall University is allowing a pro-homosexual professor to give a course on “The Politics of Gay Marriage.” When plans for the anti-Catholic course were first announced at the diocesan university, the Most Reverend John J. Myers, Archbishop of Newark, responded. “This proposed course seeks to promote as legitimate a train of thought that is contrary to what the Church teaches. As a result, the course is not in synch with Catholic teaching,” he stated. However, despite the archbishop’s misgivings the course was not stopped. According to the New Jersey...

Throw in a language barrier, limited training aids and an incomplete curriculum and anyone might start to question whether or not it will get finished. However, despite the obstacles, Kabul, Afghanistan's first Petroleum, Oils and Lubricants class graduated Aug. 6. The course's instructor, Master Sgt. Tracey Wolfe, a fuels complex instructor assigned to the 364th Training Squadron here, taught his seven Afghan students various subjects including information safety, vehicle inspection, facility inspection, forms and fueling...
