ACADEMIC ACTIVISM

American Colleges and Universities say activism is welcomed and encouraged on their campuses. US Students reacted.

This is not to say scholars don't have to arrive on time, engage in the classroom, and complete their assignments.
Student activism has its place, but institutions for higher learning must prioritize academic excellence and intellectual diversity over politics.

Activists can create an echo chamber and limit the exchange of ideas, hindering the true purpose of higher education.

As an American tourist Paul Cole was visiting London in 1969, he’d grown tired of visiting museums and went to Abbey Road.

He took a walk on the wild seat while waiting for his wife and by coincidence ended up in a photo seen around the world.

Mr. Cole can be seen in the photograph, taken by Iain Macmillan, wearing a brown jacket and glasses with his hands on his hips looking over toward the Fab Four. 

“I just happened to look up, and I saw those guys walking across the street like a line of ducks,” Cole called them.

This Babylonian clay tablet of a nude couple embracing on a bed, circa 1800 B.C. is considered to be the first recorded kiss.

According to a new study, the fine art of intimate kissing is 1K years older and was far more widespread than previously thought.

I'm a researcher who deeply appreciates the invaluable contributions of librarians. They are the real deal and unsung heroes.

Librarians walk upon the earth sharing a wealth of knowledge and the ability to navigate the massive of information and slay any metaphorical demons that come their way. Most know Queen B, now allow me to introduce Queen R who I invited to speak to my students and she is delivering.
