  • My University Treated Me Like a Criminal Over a Joke

    07/19/2017 7:44:53 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 53 replies
    For the past six years, I have taught an undergraduate course on international economics at Johns Hopkins University. Most of my students thought it was a very good course. So I was shocked when, on December 6, 2016, I was met at the door of my classroom by Johns Hopkins security personnel and barred from entering. The next day, I received a letter from my dean suspending me from my teaching duties—just three classes before the end of the semester. What had I done to cause such a reaction by the administration? I had told a joke when discussing off-shoring,...

  • Top 10 Universities Getting the Most Government Money

    Wall Street 24X7 ^ | 04/25/2013 | Samuel Weigley, Alexander E.M. Hess
    The federal government gave out more than $40 billion for research and development (R&D) to universities across the country in fiscal 2011. Universities depend heavily on federal funding, with many of the top programs relying on the government for more than 60% of their R&D budgets. As a result, many research program directors fear that the federal cuts promoted by the sequester will hurt future funding. A few of the top schools received a disproportionate share of the governmentÂ’s spending on grants for R&D. Of all 896 schools that received federal money for R&D, approximately 20% of those funds went...

    Johns Hopkins’s And Planned Parenthood’s Troubling Extremism By George F. Will April 5 We know Johns Hopkins University is devoted to diversity, because it says so. Its “Diversity and Inclusion Statement,” a classic of the genre, says the university is “committed to sharing values of diversity and inclusion by recruiting and retaining a diverse group of students.” Hopkins has an Office of Institutional Equity and a “Diversity Leadership Council” that defines “inclusion” as “active, thoughtful and ongoing engagement with each other.” Unless you are a member of Voice for Life (VFL), an antiabortion group.

    Dr. Ben Carson on Friday apologized to Johns Hopkins University for “poorly chosen” comments he made last week in which he seemed to compare gay relationships to pedophilia and bestiality. The pediatric neurosurgeon’s message to the Hopkins community came after a top university official issued a statement calling Carson’s words “offensive” and saying he would meet with students who want Carson removed as commencement speaker.

    Johns Hopkins University is standing by Dr. Ben Carson, even after the neurosurgeon’s anti-gay remarks, Dennis O’Shea, executive director of the university’s media relations said. “Dr. Carson is a distinguished Johns Hopkins surgeon and scientist chosen to speak at the School of Medicine diploma ceremony because of his extraordinary accomplishments as a neurosurgeon and his many contributions as an advocate for education and children,” O’Shea said in an email to The Huffington Post. “He was not asked to speak because of his personal political, religious or social views. His personal views are just that, his own. When he speaks about...

Could world-renowned, up-from-the mean-streets of Detroit inspirational figure be the Man on a White Horse who could rescue America from the fiscal and social death spiral the progressives have foisted upon us?

    BALTIMORE - It would have been a wonderful story: The Duke lacrosse team completing its emotional comeback season by claiming its first national championship before a record crowd. Johns Hopkins wrote its own ending, one that left Duke’s players engulfed in an emotion they hadn’t experienced in nearly a year — bitter disappointment. Hopkins claimed its ninth lacrosse title Monday, withstanding a furious Duke rally before escaping with a 12-11 victory. The Blue Jays (13-4) never trailed. But they blew a six-goal halftime lead and found themselves locked in a tie at 11 after Duke’s Max Quinzani scored with 4:37...
  • Fastest way from I-695 (north of Baltimore) to Johns Hopkins Homewood campus?

    10/27/2006 9:26:06 PM PDT · by rudy45 · 10 replies · 240+ views
    We're coming from Wilmington DE/Philadelphia area, traveling south on I-95. I'm thinking, when we hit I-695, taking outer loop ("counterclockwise") around Baltimore. Option 1 seems to be to exit I-695 at North Charles St. We get off I-695 quicker, but I'm unsure how fast North Charles is. Are there many lights? Option 2 is to continue on I-695 to I-83 south. Question: is the extra time I spend on I-695 "worth it" in terms of getting a faster drive on I-83 south? What other options do I have for getting to JHU Homewood "quickly" from north of Baltimore? Thanks.
