  • My Train Wreck Conversion (Lesbian turns away, chooses Christianity)

    As a leftist lesbian professor, I despised Christians. Then I somehow became one. The word Jesus stuck in my throat like an elephant tusk; no matter how hard I choked, I couldn't hack it out. Those who professed the name commanded my pity and wrath. As a university professor, I tired of students who seemed to believe that "knowing Jesus" meant knowing little else. Christians in particular were bad readers, always seizing opportunities to insert a Bible verse into a conversation with the same point as a punctuation mark: to end it rather than deepen it.
  • Students revolting over JP Morgan's Jamie Dimon as graduation speaker

    He may be a hero on Wall Street but the JP Morgan boss Jamie Dimon is seriously uncool in the eyes of students. There's revolt in the air at Syracuse University in upstate New York where Dimon is due to give a graduation address next month. Disgruntled students complain that the university's invitation to Dimon amounts to an attempt to use their commencement ceremony (graduation to us Brits) as a tool to rebuild the public image of the disgraced banking industry. And they point out that while JP Morgan coins in record profits, the credit crunch has left many students...
  • Syracuse University welcomes the pagans

    Syracuse University’s announcement that it has taken the unusual step of hiring a pagan chaplain reflects a welcome open-mindedness to diversity and religious pluralism. The college’s roots are in Methodism. But the appointment of Mary Hudson as the 11th chaplain at Hendricks Chapel shows the broadening of religious expression in America — and one hopes, religious tolerance — in the 80 years since the chapel opened its doors.

    Syracuse, N.Y. -- Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer will speak at Syracuse University next week on the financial crisis. Spitzer's talk, "From Libertarianism to Angry Populism: Have We Learned Anything From the Crisis of the Past Two Years?" will begin at 5 p.m. Thursday in the Maxwell School auditorium. Spitzer resigned in March 2008, after barely more than a year in office, amid accusations he patronized a prostitute. The talk is free and open to the public.

    Just a few years ago, I took the opportunity to attend special guest appearances by two high-profile political personalities at Syracuse University whose visits were within a few weeks of each other—Ralph Reed, former leader of the Christian Coalition and a Republican strategist on the right, and Jocelyn Elders, former surgeon general of the United States during the Clinton administration and a Democrat of decidedly left orientation. Although their addresses and responses to questions that followed illustrated vividly their wide differences of opinion on current issues, that was not the most striking contrast between the two mid-week evening events at...

    "Red Army soldiers don't believe in 'individual liaisons' with German women," wrote the playwright Zakhar Agranenko in his diary when serving as an officer of marine infantry in East Prussia. "Nine, ten, twelve men at a time - they rape them on a collective basis." The Soviet armies advancing into East Prussia in January 1945, in huge, long columns, were an extraordinary mixture of modern and medieval: tank troops in padded black helmets, Cossack cavalrymen on shaggy mounts with loot strapped to the saddle, lend-lease Studebakers and Dodges towing light field guns, and then a second echelon in horse-drawn carts....
  • Report: Russia Had Sources in U.S. Command

    WASHINGTON - The Russian government had sources inside the American military command as it planned and executed the invasion of Iraq in 2003, according to Iraqi documents released as part of a Pentagon report. The Russians passed information to Saddam Hussein on U.S. troop movements and plans during the opening days of the war, according to the report Friday. The unclassified report does not assess the value of the information or provide details beyond citing two captured Iraqi documents that say the Russians collected information from sources "inside the American Central Command" and that battlefield intelligence was provided to Saddam...

Russian specialists intend to build such a jet, or an aviation complex, as engineers say, in five or seven years. Technical details of such developments are being kept top secret, although Russian aircraft designers decided to expose several solutions of theirs. Russia's world-famous major aircraft corporations, MiG and Sukhoi were fighting for the right...

    Polish Prime Minister Marek Belka has said it would be inappropriate to comment on all ‘strange’ statements coming from Russia, such as the latest one on Yalta released by the Russian Foreign Ministry two days ago. The statement says that at the Yalta Conference 60 years ago the allied powers reiterated their support for a strong, free, sovereign and democratic Poland, whose security was guaranteed not only by the United States and Britain but also by the Soviet Union. According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, by criticizing the outcome of Yalta Poles are re-writing World War Two history and are...
