    On Friday, March 30, 2012, Hisham Y. Altalib visited the White House. According to visitor logs, Altalib was received by Joshua DuBois, the director of President Obama's Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Four days later, White House officials welcomed a foreign delegation of the radical Sharia-enforcing Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt. The White House meeting with overseas Muslim Brotherhood leaders was reported in April by a few mainstream journalists and questioned loudly by conservative media. But the White House confab in March with U.S.-based Altalib -- which appears to be a prep session with the global Muslim Brotherhood's American...

    Juanita Carpenter Richardson, 73, Purdue’s first Golden Girl, died in San Diego, CA, on Dec. 25, 2009, following a short illness. Director Emeritus of Bands Al G. Wright recruited Juanita to come to Purdue from Colorado and perform as a solo twirler with the “All-American” Marching Band in1954. Her blond hair, gold sequin costume and twirling talents combined to make her an instant fan favorite. She twirled two football seasons, in 1954 and 1955, but the name given to her - Purdue’s Golden Girl - created a tradition that continues to this day.

Buddhi, an Indian national who was attending advanced engineering classes at Purdue's West Lafayette campus, faces an 11-count complaint for alleged comments he made in an Internet chat room in 2005 and 2006. The indictment alleges that he made threats against the president,...

    Oxford, N.C. — Sixteen-year-old Ashton Lundeby's bedroom in his mother's Granville County home is nothing, if not patriotic.

    The May 9 edition of the New York Post carries a short article by an Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis student named Keith John Sampson. He tells a story of how he was charged with "racial harassment" simply because he was "caught" reading an anti-Ku Klux Klan book. I'm not kidding.  Sampson tells his story: The book was Todd Tucker's 'Notre Dame vs. the Klan: How the Fighting Irish Defeated the Ku Klux Klan'; I was reading it on break from my campus job as a janitor. The same book is in the university library . . . . But that didn't...

    Purdue Christmas tree gets name back December 8, 2005 WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- The Norwegian spruce in the Purdue Memorial Union's Great Hall is a Christmas tree again. The Purdue Student Union Board, which had christened the 28-foot tree the ''Union tree'' in the interest of diversity, voted this week to return to the traditional name. The decision followed a lengthy discussion over what the tree has been called over the years -- and why, said Heather Owen, program director at the Purdue Memorial Union. The decision to refer to the tree as the ''Union tree'' drew criticism from some...

    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - A Purdue University student has been suspended from his job as a physics department assistant and may lose the job after objecting to Purdue's United Way campaign because the charity supports anti-gay groups such as the Boy Scouts. Mike Sloothaak was placed on administrative suspension without pay Nov. 19 after protesting United Way solicitations from the Northwest Indiana university's president and Andrew Hirsch, head of the school's physics department. Those solicitations included an email from the physics department in October that listed all physics graduate students and staff who hadn't returned their United Way pledge forms....

    WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Researchers at Purdue University have developed a method that will enable authorities to trace documents to specific printers, a technique law-enforcement agencies could use to investigate counterfeiting, forgeries and homeland security matters. The technique uses two methods to trace a document: first, by analyzing a document to identify characteristics that are unique for each printer, and second by designing printers to purposely embed individualized characteristics in documents. The technique currently focuses on laser printers but eventually will be expanded to inkjet printers, said Edward J. Delp, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at Purdue. Findings...

    Milwaukeean struggles with the feeling that he's an outsider both on campus and back home It's a frigid Saturday morning in November, but the Purdue University students do not seem to feel the cold. They spill in and out of main street pubs, dressed in an assortment of flesh-exposing costumes, revving themselves up for the afternoon's football game against Iowa. They are safe and self-assured. This moment is all that matters. Corey Benson, a Purdue freshman, left behind the urban neighborhoods of Milwaukee's north side for the sheltered structure of this campus, an engineer's dream. He doubts that he would...

    For education and discussion only. Not for commercial use.INDIANAPOLIS - After more than 40 years of exporting more meat, grains and produce than it imports, the United States is on the brink of becoming a net agricultural importer, two economists warn. If current trends continue, Purdue University economists Phil Paarlberg and Phil Abbott say agriculture imports could overtake exports by 2007, driven by a sluggish export market and consumers' growing appetite for foods grown overseas. From mangos to baby back ribs, Americans are eating more foods that are either not produced in America or in amounts too small to meet...

    Source: Purdue University Date: 12/17/2002 Purdue Research Hints That Birds Could Spread Ebola Virus WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Ebola shares a closer relationship with several bird viruses than was previously thought, bolstering the case for a common ancestor and hinting that birds might carry the deadly virus, a Purdue University research team reports. David Sanders and his research group have discovered that the outer protein shell of Ebola has a biochemical structure similar to several retroviruses carried by birds. As scientists had known previously of genetic similarity among the viruses, this discovery makes a common evolutionary origin even more likely....

    Liberals must learn when to fight terrorism I am now convinced the "liberal" population of the United States is incapable of learning. We keep hearing from the Democrats, Independents or other liberals that we shouldn?t conduct a pre-emptive strike on Iraq. These people just don?t learn. What is it going to take? The World Trade Center was bombed the first time, two American embassies were bombed simultaneously in Africa, the USS Cole was bombed, plus more smaller attacks most people aren?t familiar with. And who was in the Oval Office during all of these attacks? Bill Clinton (Democrat!). And what...
