The school says it is keeping the dogs in a space that won’t impact students with allergies who may also need to use the library.

    It was inevitable, from the moment video cameras went up over Pittsburgh area bald eagle nests, that viewers would eventually see something disturbing. On Tuesday, eagles at the nest site in the Hays neighborhood brought a young cat into the nest to feed their two eaglets. "After reviewing the footage, we believe the cat was dead when it was brought to the nest," said Rachel Handel, spokeswoman for the Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania. "We don't know if it was a pet or feral. It's impossible to know if the cat was killed by the eagle or was a roadkill,...

    The Donald Trump campus chalking conspiracy continues. The University of Wisconsin Lacrosse is the latest campus where messages touting the polarizing developer's presidential bid were taken as "micro-aggressions" by college students apparently seeking shelter from disparate political beliefs. "All Lives Matter," "Build the wall" and "Stop Illegal Immigration" were among the messages inscribed in chalk around the grounds earlier this month, prompting the school to send its "Hate Response Team" to investigate, according to The investigative group even posted a message on its Facebook page to quell the worries of the student body. "While we respect peoples’ right to...

    A recent girls soccer game in Elkhorn, Wisconsin, was suspended after a group of Elkhorn students directed a series of pro-Trump chants at Latino students on the opposing team. The opposing team, Beloit Memorial High School, asked the game’s referees to suspend the game after the chants rendered Beloit’s student athletes incapable of returning to the field. High school soccer rules allow referees to suspend play due to “outside interference.” “They came off the field and weren’t able to finish the game because they were too upset and distraught over what happened to them,” Denu said. “One of the girls...

    The phrase, “Well, poop!” actually has wider applicability than just the obvious within America today: gender-specific, neutral or sexually unidentifiable restrooms in public places. The phrase certainly can be applied to this election season. Heaven help the candidate who while trying to address an issue of concern to most voters inadvertently strays during an expansive moment and trips over a political mouth-block. There will be no mention of what the candidate was talking about or responding to. What will happen, however, is a series of seemingly never-ending, mouse-clicky, blood-thirsty “news” headlines feeding off the most mindless and insignificant element of...

    Several events for Ohio University’s Greek Week, an annual, weeklong event focused on philanthropy, have been canceled after some Sorority and Fraternity Life members painted “Build the Wall” on an area typically designated for graffiti last week. The Greek Week events, set to take place between April 11 and 18, were amended after unnamed members of Sorority and Fraternity Life painted the graffiti wall by Bentley Hall, including the phrase “Build the Wall,” according to a letter sent Sunday to sororities and fraternities. The phrase has been a part of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's campaign to construct a wall...

    A vocal group of students at the University of California Berkeley is demanding the university use taxpayer dollars to fund an abortion clinic on campus. LifeNews reported the UC Berkeley student government approved a resolution in March urging administrators to provide free abortions through the university health services. The students claim that better access to abortion will help female students to succeed. However, not everyone is supportive of the on-campus abortion clinic. Members of the UC Berkeley Students for Life club said they were horrified by the proposal. “This is exactly the kind of callous attitude that forces students to...

    On Monday, students at Indiana University Bloomington mistook a priest for a Ku Klux Klan member, taking to social media to express their fear of the alleged Klansman, who they claimed was carrying a whip, and dressed in “white robes.” Rumors of a Klansman on campus were extinguished after it was pointed out that the passerby was actually a priest innocently making his way through Bloomington, Indiana. When sighted on campus, students thought his white robes indicated an affiliation with the KKK. Residential hall advisor Ethan Gill quickly wrote an email to his students, warning them of the “threat” on...

    The relationship between college students and free speech: It’s complicated. A new Gallup survey said 72 percent of college students oppose campus restrictions on “expressing political views that are upsetting or offensive to certain groups.” But asked whether “slurs” and other “intentionally offensive” language should be banned, and they’re all for it. Sixty-nine percent of college students surveyed said they would be in favor of prohibiting “intentionally offensive” speech on campus, and 63 percent also said they would support administrative measures to ban “costumes that stereotype certain racial or ethnic groups.” As the sound and the fury over the “Trump...

    Professor Victor Davis Hanson is a classicist and historian with the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. He recently wrote an article titled "The hypocrisy behind the student renaming craze." Students, often with the blessing of faculty, have discovered that names for campus buildings and holidays do not always fit politically correct standards for race, class and sex. Stanford students have demanded the renaming of buildings, malls and streets bearing the name of the recently canonized Junipero Serra, an 18th-century Franciscan priest who was often unkind to American Indians. Harvard Law School is getting rid of its seal because it bears...

    The American Council of Trustees and Alumni publishes occasional reports on what college students know. Nearly 10 percent of the college graduates surveyed thought Judith Sheindlin, TV's "Judge Judy," is a member of the U.S. Supreme Court. Less than 20 percent of the college graduates knew the effect of the Emancipation Proclamation. More than a quarter of the college graduates did not know Franklin D. Roosevelt was president during World War II; one-third did not know he was the president who spearheaded the New Deal. But it is little mystery why so many college students are illiterate, innumerate and resistant...

    Last week, a group of about 50 students at Emory University claimed that at an outbreak of pro-Donald Trump sidewalk chalk around campus was “triggering,” racist and damaging to their psychological well-being. Emory president James Wagner then legitimized the complaints, describing words such as “Vote Trump” and “Build the wall” — chalked on cement — as “perceived intimidation.” Over the weekend, students involved in Emory’s Young Americans for Liberty chapter responded to the wailing and gnashing of teeth by the $59,444-per-year private school’s social justice warriors with a new, bigger, better political message in support of Trump, reports Inside Higher...

    After the GOP frontrunner's name was written in chalk on a campus wall, students said they 'feared for their lives.' The school vowed to identify the taggers. But professors at the school are now pushing back. Support for Donald Trump in the form of chalk markings on campus at Emory College sent the university into a tailspin this week, with the administration scrambling to appease students who felt threatened by the sudden scourge of pro-Trump scribblings on school grounds. Early Monday, students say, they were "attacked" by Trump's name in large, pastel letters on campus walkways and buildings. "Vote for...

    Have you seen the anti-Trump video that features women quoting Donald Trump’s most offensive statements about women? I just showed it to a woman. She thought it was funny. Apparently nothing that Trump says comes off as offensive to her. The reason I checked with a woman is because I didn’t trust my own reaction. To me, the video looked like the most tone-deaf ad of all time. I would rank it as among the worst I have ever seen in terms of persuasion. I’m guessing it worked in Trump’s favor. ...snip.....

When the people came ashore, they went to work. They cleared trees, dug in the ground, built structures, and planted food. Unlabeled began to detect microaggressions, especially from the cisgender males who just assumed a leadership role in the community without being asked by the strong, proud, independent women. She was hurt by these microaggressions and asked them to stop. The leader of the community, a cisgender male, marginalized Unlabeled by...

    President Barack Obama is seeking to end federal funding for a pro-life program installed during the administration of President George W.

The “snowflake baby” program provided funding for adoption-awareness programs for the children who were formerly stored human embryos at fertility clinics who could have been destroyed for scientific research. Congressman Chris Smith, a New Jersey Republican, was one of the strong proponents of the pro-life program, saying, “Assertions that leftover embryos are better off dead so that their stem cells can be derived is dehumanizing and...
