    Researchers at Northwestern University have found evidence for a massive reservoir of water deep within the Earth's mantle. The reservoir, which is said to be three times the volume of the oceans on the surface, is contained within highly-pressurized rock known as ringwoodite. The scientists hope that their findings, recently published in the journal Science, can shed light on where Earth's oceans came from. THREE TIMES THE VOLUME OF THE OCEANS ON EARTH'S SURFACE The team, led by mineralogist Steven Jacobsen, used an array of 2000 seismometers to study how seismic waves generated by earthquakes move through the Earth's interior....

    Northwestern University continued to stumble over diversity issues this week as Mexican students voiced disagreement with a campuswide letter that advised students not to celebrate Cinco de Mayo by engaging in racially-offensive activities, such as eating tacos and drinking tequila. The letter was sent to students via e-mail, and published in The Daily Northwestern last week. Leaders of Alianza, a Latino student group, and the Associated Student Government called on students to remember that Cinco de Mayo commemorates Mexico’s victory over France in the Battle of Puebla. It is not a day to throw a sombrero-themed party, they said. “Some...

    Why do parents hope their children will go on to college? Most parents I know hope that college will provide the education and training needed for a satisfying and rewarding career that will also pay the bills. As the mother of two young women – one a college freshman, the other a high school freshman who will soon be contemplating some form of higher education – this is my hope as well. And I am so very thankful that my oldest is not attending Northwestern University, where students were recently treated to a live demonstration of female orgasm:

    Logans Warning ^ | October 1St, 2010 | Christopher Logan
    In the continued slow suicide of Western Civilization, Northwestern University has appointed a Muslim chaplain to represent the Muslim community on campus, (make demands in favor of Islam). In the past Tahera Ahmad was a leader of the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago, whose website details their 16 point plan to silence the critics of Islam. The Council is also trying to curtail the sales of alcohol in their area. Did anyone at the university bother to ask Tahera if she is against Sharia Law? Of course not, that would be “offensive”.

    CHICAGO — News organizations, including The Associated Press, the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times, filed court papers Monday supporting Northwestern University's fight of a subpoena seeking the grades of journalism students who believe they've found an innocent man in prison. Prosecutors are seeking grades, grading criteria and class records because they contend the students may have been motivated to find evidence of Anthony McKinney's innocence to get better grades. McKinney is serving a life sentence for the 1978 murder of a security guard and is seeking a new trial. Northwestern University's attorneys filed a brief Monday asking Cook County...

    While on the board of a Chicago-based charity, Barack Obama helped fund a carbon trading exchange that will likely play a critical role in the cap-and-trade carbon reduction program he is now trying to push through Congress as president. In 2000 and 2001, while Barack Obama served as a board member for a Chicago-based charitable foundation, he helped to fund a pioneering carbon trading exchange that is likely to fill a critical role in the controversial cap-and-trade carbon reduction scheme that President Obama is now trying to push rapidly through Congress. During those two years, the Joyce Foundation gave nearly...

    EVANSTON, Illinois, August 22, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Academics and transsexual activists turned on a psychology professor after he published a highly controversial explanation that transsexual desires are eroticism based on the "idea of being a woman". In his book "The Man Who Would be Queen," Professor J. Michael Bailey of Northwestern University explained that a man's desire to be a woman is based on a sexual desire called "autogynephilia," which he describes as "sexual arousal at the idea of being a woman." He also explained that the term "women trapped in men's bodies" is a misleading way of explaining the...

    Minarets tower over two of the tallest roller coasters in the world, on the flyer announcing today’s big event at Six Flags’ Great Adventure & Wild Safari.  On this day, the park will be “transformed,” as thousands of Islamists from across the northeast come together in Jackson, New Jersey for "The Great Muslim Adventure Day."  Regrettably, Muslims will be the only ones having fun, as non-Muslims have been told that they are not welcome. The event, which also goes by the name "Muslim Youth Day," is being sponsored by the New Jersey chapter of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA),...

    Our first reaction to reading Northwestern University professor Arthur Butz's latest claim that the Holocaust was a Jewish hoax was-like that of so many-pain, frustration, and outrage. But more than anything, we felt profoundly annoyed that the lies of a delusional academic would undermine all the hard work of so many to make Northwestern the welcoming home for Jews that it is. Our Jewish Theater Ensemble just concluded a sold-out five performance run of the musical 'Children of Eden,' by Broadway composer Steven Schwartz, a theatrical interpretation of the first nine chapters of Genesis.

    Bill Ayers (scroll down the below post for more about him) is married to fellow ex-Weather Underground terrorist Bernardine Dohrn. She's a clinical associate professor of law at Evanston's Northwestern University. Her NU biography is here, and like hubby's UIC biography, it leaves out her terror past. Today I found this Dohrn dropping, courtesy of FrontPage Magazine's Discover the Network. In 1969, the infamous Manson Family mass murder took place--that same year, this is what future-Professor Dohrn had to say about that crime: "Dig it. First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them....

    The other day I ran across a newspaper report of a most remarkable and bizarre study wherein the researchers decided to examine the responses of 24 white college students to determine the hidden racial beliefs of white Americans overall. The students were shown ambiguous facial expressions in pictures of both blacks and whites. As a result of their recorded reactions, the researchers (headed by a Professor Bodenhausen) found that the students were more likely to read hostility in the faces of black Americans than in those of their fellow whites. Another experiment of theirs reached a similar conclusion when the...

    Protestors clash over abortion rights Students, community members line Sheridan Road in demonstration By Sheila Burt and Nick Collins March 11, 2004 Joe Scheidler positioned his 5-foot-high picture of a bloody fetus head in plain view of the passing cars on Sheridan Road. The national director of the Pro-Life Action League wanted to raise students' awareness about abortion through an on-campus protest on March 10. Two women -- joining a group of more than 75 Northwestern students and community members to protest the anti-abortion group -- jumped in front of the tall man as they held abortion-rights signs.

    Northwestern University tailback Jason Wright closed out his college career as the school's fourth-leading rusher, and was a two-time first team Academic All-American. On Saturday, however, he recorded a first: he gave his first formal speech, as the keynote speaker at the Rolling Meadows Community Prayer Breakfast. "I'm just glad for the opportunity," Wright said afterward. "This is the only group I've ever spoken to, besides my (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) group." It won't be his last. He already is booked to speak to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes coaches meeting on March 13 at Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire....

    EVANSTON, ILL. - It's a rainy Thursday night, a few days before finals, and Northwestern University's campus is deserted. But students can hear the raucous music emanating from one old stone building long before they step inside. "Blessed be Your glorious name!" sings a throng of 100-plus students, led by amped-up guitarists, a drummer, and backup singers on stage. It would take more than rain or exams to keep them away from these Thursday nights of singing, praising God, and sharing their relationships with Jesus. Religion on campus - particularly evangelical groups like this one - is thriving these days,...

    Evanston police arrested a Communication freshman Monday and charged him with felony disorderly conduct, alleging he lied about two hate crimes to bring attention to race relations on campus. Jaime Alexander Saide, nicknamed Xander, told police he found the words "Die Spic" written on a poster and wall adjacent to his first-floor room in Chapin Residential College on Nov. 4. Four days later Saide told police someone grabbed him from behind on the street nearby the dorm, held a knife to his neck and whispered "Spic, we didn't run away this time," into his ear. Saide "made up" both incidents,...
