The question posed today is: Did Harvard University, whose position on the question of privacy seems ambiguous, make the right decision to secretly search the email accounts of 16 resident deans without first informing them?
NBA sensation Jeremy Lin chatted with me at SXSW about his brand new documentary, Linsanity the movie, appearing in various YouTube videos and the overall message he wants fans to take away from his new film.
By giving immigrants equal access to the privileges of nationals, what seemed fair to policy makers seemed unfair to citizens such as Breivik. So fairness, being subjective, is not the glue that binds us. Love, in the form of genuine respect, is that glue.
Harvard students and faculty should make clear their grave concerns over the university's direction. It seems like Harvard's administration needs a reminder that student and faculty rights must take precedence over public relations.
Spring is the time of year when many juniors and their parents start visiting prospective colleges. This is the ideal time of year to visit colleges as they are still in session and you can see authentic college life.

How, and more importantly who, do contemporary artists collect? Neither Matt nor I really set out to collect art, but as Matt says, "spending your life in the presence of art, you start to pick up things that you love." Most of the pieces he owns come with a story, and often with a trade.
Today's version of the metal can could be a thing of the past, if a consortium of activist groups gets its way. Their target is a chemical that, if banned, could change the very way food is packaged.
