This year, there will be no necktie, no book, no gift card to Amazon. Instead, I'm giving a donation to an important charity in honor of my Dad.
Global energy consumption is on a path to grow 30-50 percent over the next 25 years, bringing with it, in many countries, increased local air pollution, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and oil consumption, as well as higher energy prices.
Faculty should be hired and evaluated on the basis of their teaching, research, and professional service, and should be free to speak as citizens and persons without fear for their jobs.

The early bird gets the worm. Slow and steady wins the race. For those of us who are parents, these may be familiar sayings that we tell our children to either get them moving, or instead have them slow down.
To hear the words "cancer" and "cure" in the same sentence from experienced cancer researchers is both breathtaking and unexpected. Researchers and top oncologists are usually cautious to a fault.
For three consecutive years, inspired by the NCAA's March Madness, Thomson Reuters has hosted "Metrics Mania" a competition that takes these teams off the court for a faceoff on the strength of their scholarly research programs.

The scandals at Syracuse and North Carolina, the shadows over Duke, the many scandals of the past and future will not vanish. The only thing that ultimately will vanish is the integrity of American higher education. That is the real Madness of March.
It's not about wins and losses. It's about recognizing challenges that are bigger than basketball and having the courage to stand up to battle them. Dean Smith showed us that.
Krzyzewski isn't just a coach these days, but an institution. The framework of the entire university is shaped by his program, and in turn, by Cameron Indoor itself. Etched in my memory are the slate of banners hung in the rafters, one after another, after another. Four national titles, 11 Final Fours -- and Krzyzewski's latest accomplishment, 1,000 career wins, an unprecedented feat and a banner that rightfully hangs all by itself.
Imagine you are dining in a restaurant with a friend, and your friend suddenly begins to choke on a piece of food, grabbing for her neck. What do you do? Did you say the Heimlich Maneuver? Hopefully so. The Heimlich's simplicity makes it easy to recall during extremely stressful situations.

The adhan can help us recall what gives our lives meaning, and can help us cultivate an attitude of gratefulness. It can help us look up from the cellphone in our hand and notice the blue sky, the purple shadows stretching across the snow or the smiles of those we pass by.
Franklin Graham has little or no connection with Duke, and knows little about its heritage and traditions and commitment to its religious and educational values. My personal and family connections to Duke and Islam lead me to an entirely opposite conclusion from Mr. Graham.
