    University of San Francisco, a Jesuit school, no less, is presenting a lecture event on June 2, that will feature Aarab Barghouti as the guest speaker. Marwan, his father, is currently serving five life sentences in prison in Israel for specific murders, but bears responsibility for the murders of over 100 men, women and children in terrorist attacks in the Jewish state, some of them U.S. citizens. “Only Israeli propaganda presents him as a terrorist," Aarab, the terrorist murderer's youngest son, is quoted as saying. "Nelson Mandela was also portrayed as a terrorist. He spent 27 years in prison. And...

In the lawsuit, DeBose named USF Board of Trustees and several top officials, including the University's Provost, Ralph Wilcox.

    San Francisco 49ers Hall of Fame offensive tackle Bob St. Clair died Monday night following a brief illness, the Pro Football Hall of Fame told NFL Media. He was 84 years old. A Bay Area legend, St. Clair teamed with fellow NFL Hall of Famers Ollie Matson and Gino Marchetti on Joe Kuharich's fabled University of San Francisco Dons squad that went undefeated in 1951. Drafted by his hometown 49ers in 1953, St. Clair emerged as one of the decade's top linemen, earning first- or second-team All-NFL honors nine times. He was also selected to five Pro Bowls and served...

    By now, the Republican Party’s view of the Affordable Care Act should be pretty familiar, as in this ad from David Jolly:“I’m fighting to repeal Obamacare, right away. It’s bad for our families, and our economy.”But not all Republicans agree; one is Irene Jacusis of New Port Richey, who was uninsured until now. “I did not vote for Obama," she said. “But I am so in love with this plan, with this health care plan, what can I do?” […] Another Republican who wants to keep the Affordable Care Act is Mary Fallon of St. Petersburg. She was a teacher...

    How many readers notice Obama’s bold new initiative called “Connect-Ed” announced earlier this month. You might have heard about it in the form of a proposed increase in the Universal Service fund the FCC imposes on all cell phone users, with the exception of the two and a half million Obama phones. If you didn’t hear or glossed over the details since everything Obama does is proclaimed bold by news organizations. Obama is proposing to connect 99% of students to broadband internet service by calling on the FCC to “modernize and leverage” its E-Rate program to support this vision.

    TAMPA — Soon after she was appointed honorary consul to South Korea, Jill Kelley of Tampa went to work trying to establish a relationship between that country and the University of South Florida's medical school. "I was nominated for this diplomatic appointment, for the purpose to facilitate new agreements in the USA with my contacts," Kelley wrote in a Sept. 7 email to USF medical school dean Stephen Klasko. "I have a unique opportunity to propose bids because of my relationship with the top executive branch of Korea, and in addition, the President of the Free Trade Act is my...

    A transgender student at University of South Florida (USF) has now conclusively shown that once people become sufficiently open-minded their brains are likely to fall out and hit the ground. Frustrated and confused with his sexuality, Taylor McCue wanted to force USF to join colleges like Rutgers and Harvard, which are now offering students the option to live with anyone of any gender. And the USF administration has caved. Sissies! Now, as a result of the lobbying of one deeply confused student, USF has decided to go beyond what other universities in Florida do with transgender students, by actively offering...

    On FNC, Gov Huckabee just revealed the cost to you and me to bring Broadband internet service to rural areas through Obama's Stimulus package. It was $349,000 per home, and you and I paid it! In Montana, it was worse. The program made Broadband available to a total of 7 homes that did not have it available before, at a cost to you and me of $49,000,000. That's $7,000,000 per home. The total cost was $7.2 BILLION... and we... and our kids... and their kids, paid the bill! And does anyone doubt that Obama is trying to destroy America?

    TAMPA — Stefani Hernandez was walking her two Weimaraners outside her apartment complex near International Plaza when she got a weird feeling, like someone was behind her. "I turned around," the 26-year-old remembers, "and there he was, inches from me." He told her she had nice dogs. Qingnong Xiao, 48, is an associate professor at the University of South Florida's College of Marine Science, earning $108,344 a year. He is a hurricane expert with publications in scientific journals. Hernandez didn't know any of that. She didn't know him. But she knew he made her nervous. So she went inside her...

    Idle Speculation ^ | 11-30-10 | Dangus
    The Big East's football expansion plans leave the conference with 17 universities, including non-Football members. That's a terrible number for scheduling; the only way the basketball teams can schedule an even number of games is if they play every other team only once. 18 teams would allow three divisions of six teams each. Any team would play the other five teams in its division twice, and one half of the twelve other teams in the conference. 18 sounds like worsening the problem of too many teams, but having three divisions could actually restore some rivalries, and return the conference to...

    How the FCC Plans to Tax the Internet By Kelly William Cobb , Wednesday, March 17, 2010 1:46 pm Today, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released its National Broadband Plan (PDF), an outline for the federal government to become significantly more involved in universal broadband access. The plan, which the FCC estimates will cost $350 billion, claims it pays for itself (a point already called into question), but the plan itself calls for raising taxes on the Internet, as well as enacting some that have yet to exist. First, the plan expressly calls for a digital goods tax: Recognizing that...

    The University of San Francisco, founded by the Jesuits in 1855, is no longer legally a “Catholic” institution and the faith is irrelevant when it comes to whether the school’s health insurance covers abortions, the president of USF’s Faculty Association told Our Sunday Visitor in an interview last week. In an April 23 report by OSV contributing editor Valerie Schmalz, faculty association president Elliot Neaman said that, if USF tries to remove abortion as an insurance benefit, the association would file an unfair labor practice complaint. “Whether abortion involves the killing of a child is ‘not relevant,’” said Neaman, according...
