    A Georgia Tech student was robbed on campus early Tuesday as she walked to her car, Tech police said. In a crime alert e-mailed to students and staff, campus police said the incident happened around midnight as the unidentified female student walked from the library to her car, which was parked near Ferst Drive and Cherry Street. The student was approached by a man, who demanded her belongings. The victim gave the man cash. The suspect was described as a light-skinned black male, 23 to 25 years old and 5 feet 8 inches tall with a medium build. He was...

    Two Navy fighter pilots have been grounded for their low flyover at a Georgia Tech football game in downtown Atlanta in November, according to several media reports. The aviators, identified by the Virginian-Pilot newspaper as Lt. Cmdr. Marc Fryman and Lt. Cmdr. Christopher Condon, are both Tech graduates. They flew F/A-18 Super Hornets a few hundred feet above Bobby Dodd Stadium after the national anthem prior to the Tech-Wake Forest game on Nov. 7. Navy rules require flyovers to be done at 1,000 feet or higher, according to NavyTimes. The Navy assigned Fryman and Condon to non-flying jobs. Several videos...

    (WSB Radio) -- This could be the break terrified Tech-area residents have been looking for: the arrest of three young men police say tried to rob a pedestrian at gunpoint. The suspects are identified as Justin Johnson, and Xavier Mosteller, both 21; and 19-year old Dandre Barnwell. Atlanta Police Sergeant Reginald Moorman says the suspects were armed and very dangerous. "It looks like they were prepared for anything," says Atlanta Police Sgt. Reginald Moorman. The three suspects were arrested early Sunday near the Tech campus. When they were pulled over, Moorman says they had in their car, "a fully-loaded AK-47...

    Letting the facts do the talking seems to be a lost art among university bureaucrats today, at least at Georgia Tech. Honesty takes a back seat to misinformation, distortions of the truth and the assumption that those with opposing views are inherently wrong and deserving of retribution. It doesn't help when some members of the media leave this unchallenged. But now a federal judge has made note of Tech's apparent "lack of candor." In March 2006, the Alliance Defense Fund —- Christian attorneys and like-minded organizations defending the right of people to freely live out their faith —- filed a...

    The student newspaper refuses an ad from the Terrorism Awareness Project, but gives glowing, free coverage to Islamic Awareness Week Last month, the editorial board of the Technique – the Georgia Tech student Newspaper – rejected an advertisement from the Terrorism Awareness Project entitled, “What Americans Need to Know about Jihad.” In the February 23rd edition, the Technique published a news article with the headline, “Islamic Awareness Week promotes understanding.” The Technique has clearly chosen to promote one particular viewpoint and censor those views not in line with its own unbalanced agenda. The Technique seems to doubt the intellectual ability...

    The Alliance Defense Fund, students of Georgia Tech and free speech won a substantial victory in court this week. On Monday, August 14 a court order went into effect that requires Georgia Tech to repeal and replace a speech code which the ADF said is unconstitutional. The order also prohibits the school from changing the code again for a period of five years unless pre-approved by the court. “The First Amendment applies to all students on campus, including religious students and students who hold conservative political beliefs. We are glad that we reached a mutually agreeable settlement with the university...
  • Smaller Bowls and Spoons Key to Eating Less

    Atlanta (August 2, 2006) — When it comes to choosing food bowls, you might want to follow Goldilocks’s lead and opt for the baby-bear serving, but not because of the temperature. What makes smaller bowls “just right” for most people is how they help control the urge to over-serve food, says Koert van Ittersum, assistant professor of marketing at Georgia Tech College of Management. Smaller spoons also help stop people from piling on too much food, according to a study conducted by van Ittersum with Brian Wansink of Cornell University and James Painter of Eastern Illinois University.

When university officials ordered parts of their protest signs for “The Vagina Monologues” be painted over with white paint, they fumed. Now, two members of the student organization are suing the public university in Atlanta, alleging the school’s Community Policies repeatedly restricted their free speech and continue to infringe on their rights. The university’s Community Guide for 2005-06 identifies several “Acts of Intolerance” that are considered “unacceptable,” including “any attempt to injure, harm, malign or harass a person because of race, religious...

The discovery of the bottle containing chemicals led to the evacuation of two dormitories, but students have been allowed back into the buildings. No serious injuries were reported after the devices were found by a janitor this morning. Officers later found at least two more devices fashioned from plastic bottles. The worker who found the bottle was picking up trash. He was taken to a clinic for evaluation.

As a result, a complaint has been filed against a Georgia Tech professor, students are dropping a class they were failing anyway, and Tech's School of Public Policy has been thrown into an awkward position. The school is stuck between a competent and fair professor and political pressure from people such as David Horowitz and State Senate President Pro Tem Eric Johnson (R-Savannah). Horowitz wrote the national "Academic Bill of...
