    Kyle Rittenhouse is no longer enrolled at Arizona State University (ASU), where a mob of left-wing students have called for his expulsion, despite Rittenhouse being acquitted of all charges. “Kyle Rittenhouse has not gone through the ASU admissions process,” a university spokesperson told the New York Post. “University records show that he is not currently enrolled in any classes at ASU.” Rittenhouse was enrolled as an online student at the university, according to a report by Tucson.com. ASU had also confirmed earlier this month that Rittenhouse had been taking classes as an online student for its session starting on October 13, but wasn’t enrolled in its Edson College of Nursing and Health, reported the Post. The news of Rittenhouse no longer being enrolled at ASU comes after a mob of socialist students demanded the school expel the 18-year-old, who they called a racist, “blood-thirsty murderer,” despite the fact that a jury found Rittenhouse acted in self defense. The socialist students then laid out their list of “demands,” which includes expelling Rittenhouse, and for the university to “Release a statement against white supremacy [and] racist murderer Kyle...
    Alumni from major colleges are withdrawing their financial support in an effort to put pressure on university leadership to encourage and protect free speech on campus, the Wall Street Journal reported. Many alumni are pushing back against teaching they believe violates their own values, the Wall Street Journal reported. Cornell graduate and California real estate developer, Carl Neuss, hesitated after the university asked him to make a seven-figure donation. Concerned with what he referred to as liberal indoctrination on campus, he began an organization called the Cornell Free Speech Alliance, according to the Wall Street Journal. Several of these types of organizations have formed on campus. They are mostly driven by politically moderate or conservative alumni. They believe progressives have taken over colleges campuses and are squelching free speech, the Wall Street Journal reported. Some alumni are pushing back against “intellectual monocultures” at their schools, withholding donations. “This is a battle for our culture and, in many ways, for Western civilization.” https://t.co/BOOgdWtr4s — The Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) December 1, 2021 Protecting free speech is cited as one of...
    Cytalux (pafolacianince), a drug that binds to ovarian cancer tissue and glows when exposed to fluorescent light, has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help surgeons detect ovarian tumors during surgical procedures in patients. A Purdue University spokesperson told Fox News that Philip Low, Purdue University's Presidential Scholar for Drug Discovery, invented the drug. Low described in a press release that when a surgeon turns on the near-infrared light during the surgery, "those lesions light up like stars against a night sky." "While many surgeries result in complete resection of all cancer tissue, a substantial fraction unfortunately leave buried or concealed tumor tissue behind, often resulting in recurrence of the cancer and sometimes even death," Low told Fox News. EXPERIMENTAL DRUG BOOSTS IMMUNOTHERAPY TREATMENT OF PANCREATIC CANCER IN MICE He added: "To help prevent the latter outcomes, we have designed a cancer-targeted fluorescent dye that homes specifically to cancer cells that express a folate receptor and causes them to fluoresce brightly upon illumination with near infrared light." Low explained that cancer cells require folate, a...
    Kyle Rittenhouse has opened up about his trial, revealing that he knew the 'state didn't have a case' against him when 'they put Dominic Black on the stand.'  Rittenhouse, 18, appeared on the Charlie Kirk Show on Tuesday to discuss his infamous case after he was acquitted earlier this month for fatally shooting two men and injuring another at the Kenosha protests.  During the hour-long interview, the teen discussed the risk of taking the stand instead of pleading the Fifth, but explained he 'wanted the world to know who the real Kyle Rittenhouse was.'  He told the conservative host that he had been 'freaking out' during the run up to the trial, despite his remarkably calm composure in court, but he felt the tide turn in his favor when the prosecution called his friend Black - who purchased the AR-15 Rittenhouse used in Kenosha with the teen's money. He explained that he knew then that there wasn't a case against him because the prosecution was banking on Black to 'lie,' he claimed.  Kyle Rittenhouse has opened up about his trial, revealing that...
    Kyle Rittenhouse is no longer enrolled at the Arizona State University (ASU) following student protests demanding his withdrawal from campus despite a jury acquitting him on murder charges earlier this month. The university has confirmed Rittenhouse's decision to leave campus, saying he was only registered part-time last year for a non-degree online course that he did not complete. 'Our records show that he is not currently enrolled,' ASU spokesperson Jay Thorne said in a statement to The Arizona Republic, adding that the decision taken by Rittenhouse was not a result of any action taken by the university against him.   A spokesperson for Arizona State University told Dailymail.com that Rittenhouse has 'not gone through the ASU admissions procession. University records show that he is not currently enrolled in any classes at ASU.'  Scroll down for video   Kyle Rittenhouse, 18, chose not to sign up for classes at Arizona State University amid student protests on his enrollment.

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Scott Carr is replacing Pete Garcia as Florida International University’s new athletic director. “We know there’s a lot of pride, Panther pride, here in the community.

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (CBS/AP) –  Dr. Mehmet Oz, the celebrity heart surgeon best known as the host of TV’s Dr. Oz Show after rocketing to fame on Oprah Winfrey’s show, announced Tuesday that he is running for Pennsylvania’s open U.S. Senate seat as a Republican. He issued the following message on why he is running: “Today, America’s heartbeat is in a code red in need of a defibrillator to shock it back to life. Many of us feel like we’re in the adjacent operating room, armed with insights and already scrubbed up but reluctant to leave our quiet, serene setting for the chaos next door. But for me, stepping into the political arena is the right thing to do. In our time of need, we want to be surrounded by people of action more than armchair intellectuals, because a great surgeon never censors ideas and never shuts off the light that shines on our wounds, which is what happened while our nation battled the pandemic.” READ MORE: Health Officials Push COVID-19 Boosters As Concern Grows Over Vaccine Effectiveness With Omicron...
    (CNN)The former dean of Temple University's business school was convicted Monday on charges of conspiracy and wire fraud for a scheme in which he and others used false data to boost the school's position on the US News and World Report's rankings, the US Attorney's Office said.Moshe Porat, 74, was the dean of Temple University's Fox School of Business and Management from 1996 to 2018.

In particular, they falsely stated how many students took the GMAT, their average work experience and the percentage of students who were enrolled part time, the indictment states.Gottlieb and O'Neill have both pleaded guilty to conspiracy and have not yet been sentenced, according to court records."Today, a jury reaffirmed that wire fraud is a federal crime even when perpetrated within the...

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center has agreed to pay $4.5 million to resolve allegations that its violations of the Controlled Substances Act allowed hospital staff to divert fentanyl and other dangerous drugs from the hospital. The civil settlement – which also includes an extensive corrective action plan – is the culmination of a three-year-long joint DEA and U.S. Attorney’s Office investigation of UTSW’s handling of controlled substances, which began in December 2018 after two UTSW nurses overdosed on fentanyl and died at UTSW’s Clements University Hospital. This marks the largest settlement involving allegations of drug diversion at a hospital in the state of Texas and the second largest in the nation.

Sign up for the free Mother Jones newsletter.I thought this assignment would be easy: Call a few scholars and settle the question of how to pronounce “omicron” in English, once and for all. Since the new coronavirus strain was discovered last week in South Africa, I’ve heard newsreaders and leaders alike use at least half a dozen variations, with accent-inflected mutations—a mix of oh’s and ah’s, me’s and my’s. President Joe Biden added to the confusion Monday morning when he said “omni-chron,” throwing in an extra consonant that lent the air of a secret island lair where an evil genius hatches a dastardly plan. Dr. Anthony Fauci says it the so-called American way. A patriot! His interviewer, CNN anchor and notable American Jake Tapper? The British. But my search for a correct pronunciation was soon snagged in the crosscurrents of academic traditions and linguistic pickles dating back millennia.

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A jury convicted the former dean of Temple University’s business school on charges related to a scheme to falsely boost the school’s rankings. The jury deliberated for less than an hour Monday before deciding Moshe Porat, 74, was guilty of federal conspiracy and wire fraud charges, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported. Porat boosted the university’s online MBA program to the top spot on the U.S. News & World Report rankings for four years in a row. With help from with two subordinates, who are also charged, Porat submitted false information about student test scores, work experience and other data. “The hope is that this case sends a message to other college and university administrators that there are real consequences to making representations that students and applicants rely on,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark B. Dubnoff said. The elevated rankings helped the university draw more students and vastly increased the Fox School of Business’ revenue under Porat’s tenure. An attorney for Porat, Michael A. Schwartz, argued at trial that while he made mistakes, Porat had not committed...

    The University of Oxford said Tuesday there was no evidence that current COVID-19 vaccines would not continue to protect against severe disease from the omicron variant.  "Despite the appearance of new variants over the past year, vaccines have continued to provide very high levels of protection against severe disease and there is no evidence so far that omicron is any different," a University of Oxford spokesperson told Fox News in an email. "However, we have the necessary tools and processes in place for rapid development of an updated COVID-19 vaccine if it should be necessary." The spokesperson also said current data about the omicron variant is limited due to its recent discovery.

ASU can confirm that Mr. Rittenhouse enrolled as a non-degree seeking ASU Online student for the session that started Oct. 13, 2021, which allows students access to begin taking classes as they prepare to seek admission into a degree program at the university," the university initially said in a statement following Rittenhouse saying in court that he was taking nursing classes at the school.  ARIZONA UNIVERSITY STUDENTS DEMAND ADMINISTRATION TO 'WITHDRAW' KYLE RITTENHOUSE: 'KILLER OFF OUR CAMPUS' Kyle Rittenhouse is not currently enrolled in any Arizona State University classes, according to school officials (Sean Krajacic-Pool/Getty Images) The administration released another statement on Monday explaining that the 18-year-old is not enrolled in any classes at the school.  "Kyle Rittenhouse has not gone through the ASU...
    Arizona State graduate student and Campus Reform correspondent Judah Waxelbaum blasted the university after leftist clubs demanded Kyle Rittenhouse be banned from enrolling at the school, shortly after being acquitted on all charges.  ARIZONA UNIVERSITY STUDENTS DEMAND ADMINISTRATION TO ‘WITHDRAW’ KYLE RITTENHOUSE: ‘KILLER OFF OUR CAMPUS’ Waxelbaum joined "Fox & Friends First" on Tuesday to discuss the list of demands, warning that college campuses everywhere are succumbing to "mob rule" through the rise of cancel culture.  "We're losing our campuses to mob rule at this moment," Waxelbaum argued. "This isn't a mob of hundreds, it's mobs of dozens, and it's only possible because faculty allows it to happen." "Since this came out, Arizona State University's only response has been to clarify Mr. Rittenhouse's enrollment status, not to condemn what they're calling for, not what they're asking of the university," he continued.  Four far-left organizations at ASU demanded the school "withdraw" Rittenhouse from the university's online classes calling him a "murderer" and "racist." The groups, including Arizona State University Students for Socialism, Students for Justice in Palestine, Multicultural Solidarity Coalition, and MECHA...
    Despite being the size of a grain of salt, a new microscopic camera can capture crisp, full-colour images on par with normal lenses that are 500,000 times larger. The ultra-compact optical device was developed by a team of researchers from Princeton University and the University of Washington. It overcomes problems with previous micro-sized camera designs, which have tended to take only distorted and fuzzy images with very limited fields of view. The new camera could allow super-small robots to sense their surroundings, or even help doctors see problems within the human body.

    American scientists have discovered the world’s first ‘creature’ Robot ‘ (Living robots). Not only that, but this too Robot Scientists said they could also do reproductive work. Living robots are also called Xenobots. Scientists have created the world’s first ‘living, self-healing’ robot using frog stem cells from African frogs. Xenobots was first released in 2020. Their size is very small. After this, experiments show that they (‘living robots’) can walk, work in groups, heal themselves, and live for many days without food. Scientists say – Now scientists at the University of Vermont, Duffts University and Harvard University’s Voice Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering claim to have discovered a different biological prognosis than the biological predictions of animals or plants. This pattern or morphology is different from any other form. ‘Living Robot’ – This robot is an updated version of the Xenobots biological robot. It was released last year.

              moreby Alexa Schwerha and Sterling Mosley   After a shooting involving two non-university individuals occurred near the University of Texas at Austin over Halloween weekend, a segment of the student body is working to realize a vision of campus safety “beyond policing.” Following the incident, The UT Senate of College Councils hosted an event titled “Campus Safety Beyond Policing” during which students discussed various ways to pursue a supposedly safer campus without needing UTPD. The event was led by the Equity and Inclusion Team of the Senate of College Councils, which opened up the meeting by stating that the purpose of the meeting was to “gain insight into what safety means to you beyond policing and how to best advocate for your needs.” Exclusive audio obtained by Campus Reform reveals that many students voiced their concern about the shooting and advocated for increased mental health services, food security services, and increased lighting in the neighborhood of West Campus, where the shooting occurred, rather than an increased police presence. Some students stated that they were afraid to contact UTPD because of their belief that the police would...

    As the COVID crisis threatened to derail Cal’s season in early November, confusion soared within the football program. Why had a handful of cases prompted mass testing of players and staff? Why had a program with strict safety protocols been called out publicly by the City of Berkeley’s health officials, supposedly causing the players to be shamed on campus? And most of all, why had a program with a 99% vaccination rate become the only team in major college football to have a game rescheduled because of the virus? Coach Justin Wilcox was measured in his public comments throughout the two-week crisis. But privately, Wilcox and others were deeply frustrated with the handling of the situation by the university, according to a recording of a virtual meeting between team parents, Wilcox and Cal medical officials that was obtained by this news organization. Midway through the hour-long meeting, the topic turned to the statement issued by Berkeley Public Health, which included previously unpublished case data and criticized the Bears for “ongoing” failures to follow public health protocols. During a tense exchange,...

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — As a workforce shortage plagues hospitals across the country, many local nursing programs are sending students to help beef up the workforce. More than 100 nursing students from the University of Maryland School of Nursing are graduating a few weeks early. These students are in a position to help local hospitals and medical offices. Many of them are in clinical rotations right now and have just an exam standing between them and the professional world. Jessica Smith, a soon-to-be graduate from the University of Maryland School of Nursing, said “the patients need it, the nurses need it, we are needed.” Smith plans to start on the oncology floor at the University of Maryland Medical Center after she graduates on Dec. 16. She says that every unit needs help. “It’s not just in the emergency departments, or in the ICUs; for me working in oncology it’s with people who maybe haven’t had many people at their bedside,” Smith said. In September, health officials called this labor shortage one of the worst nursing shortages in Maryland’s history. As a...
    (CNN)The family of Nathan Valencia, the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) student who died days after a charity boxing match, said his death "could have been avoided."Cynthia Valencia told CNN's Brianna Keilar Monday she was worried when her son first mentioned he was going to participate in UNLV's Kappa Sigma fraternity's "Fight Night" November 19."But he kept telling us 'no, this is for people who didn't have prior boxing experience,' because he never was a boxer.

    Arizona State University students have called for Kyle Rittenhouse to be expelled from the online nursing classes he has been taking, a week after the 18-year-old was acquitted of charges that stemmed from when he was in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Aug. 25 last year during riots in the aftermath of Jacob Blake, a Black man shot by a White police officer. Rittenhouse is a non-degree-seeking student at ASU who has been taking online classes offered through the university. According to Fox News: The Arizona State University Students for Socialism, Students for Justice in Palestine, Multicultural Solidarity Coalition, and MECHA de ASU are all calling on the Arizona State University administration to take action against Rittenhouse by withdrawing him from the university and releasing a statement against him. The four groups are calling him “Murderer Kyle Rittenhouse.” … The groups also demand that the university administration “reaffirm support for the multicultural center on campus as a safe space from White Supremacy.” Students making the demands also want the administration to redirect funding from the Arizona State University Police Department to the multicultural center...
    (CNN)The US scientists who created the first living robots say the life forms, known as xenobots, can now reproduce -- and in a way not seen in plants and animals.Formed from the stem cells of the African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis) from which it takes its name, xenobots are less than a millimeter (0.04 inches) wide. The tiny blobs were first unveiled in 2020 after experiments showed that they could move, work together in groups and self-heal. Now the scientists that developed them at the University of Vermont, Tufts University and Harvard University's Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering said they have discovered an entirely new form of biological reproduction different from any animal or plant known to science."I was astounded by it," said Michael Levin, a professor of biology and director of the Allen Discovery Center at Tufts University who was co-lead author of the new research."Frogs have a way of reproducing that they normally use but when you ... liberate (the cells) from the rest of the embryo and you give them a chance to figure out how...
    A Temple University senior was shot dead outside his off-campus Philadelphia apartment on Sunday as he returned home from spending Thanksgiving with his family.  Samuel Collington, a 21-year old political science student months away from graduation, was shot dead around 1.32 pm in an attempted robbery outside 2252 North Park Avenue as he unloaded his car after returning to his apartment from Thanksgiving at his parents' house in Delaware County. His death brings this year's homicide rate in Philadelphia to a record breaking 506. The grim milestone broke the 1990 record of 500 murders in the span of a year.  Philly police have accused District Attorney Larry Krasner of allowing crime to sky rocket by failing to prosecute gun crime.  Collington's murder was the sixth shooting death in the span of a week in the city plagued with gun violence. Neighbors told the outlet that Collington briefly struggled with the attacker before gunshots rang out.  He was rushed to Temple University Hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries.  No arrests have yet been made.  'Each and every homicide carries with it a profound sense of...
    BESSEMER, Ala. (AP) — A former University of Alabama track star and Olympian was killed in a shootout with another man, authorities say. The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office on Monday identified Emmit King and Willie Albert Wells as the two men who died after exchanging gunfire in Bessemer on Sunday, AL.com reported. King, 62, was a sprinter and a member of the U.S. relay team for the Summer Olympics in 1984 and 1988, but he didn’t compete. He ran for Jefferson State Community College and for the University of Alabama, where he became the 1983 NCAA national champion in the 100 meters. That same year, he won the bronze in the 100 meters at the first World Championships. Authorities said King and Wells, 60, knew each other and were arguing outside a house Sunday afternoon when they both pulled out guns and fired. Wells was pronounced dead at the scene, and King died later at a hospital. Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    COLLEGE PARK, Md. (WJZ) — The University of Maryland’s School of Public Health is set to receive a $100,000 federal grant to upgrade an Environmental Protection Agency mapping tool that tracks issues such as the concentration of homes with lead paint, proximity to traffic, the ozone level in the air and other hazards. Researchers with the university will upgrade the federal agency’s Environmental Justice Mapping Tool to include data on issues that impact children and rural areas, such as exposure to pesticides and large-scale animal feeding operations, blood lead levels, maternal and infant mortality, and socioeconomic factors such as the percentage of the population receiving social service benefits, the EPA said. Officials with the EPA, the Maryland Department of the Environment and the university are scheduled to hold a press briefing about the contract on Tuesday at 10:30 a.m.
    A Canadian college professor has lost her job after a media investigation found she had fabricated indigenous ancestry. Carrie Bourassa was placed on unpaid leave from her position as a professor of community health and epidemiology at the University of Saskatchewan and from her post as scientific director of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research after she was outed for falsely claiming indigenous heritage. GEORGIA UNIVERSITY SYSTEM DECLINES TO RENAME BUILDINGS AND COLLEGES ASSOCIATED WITH SLAVERY A CBC report last month revealed that Bourassa likely had exclusively European ancestry, despite claiming to be a member of the Metis people and using the name “Morning Star Bear” when introducing herself at a 2019 TEDx talk. Her employers initially stood by her , saying she hadn’t been hired “because of her Indigenous status.” “The quality of Professor Bourassa’s scholarly work speaks for itself and has greatly benefited the health of communities across Canada,” university provost and academic vice president Airini said. But days later , the university reversed course and relieved Bourassa of her roles...

    Student organizations at ASU are organizing a protest to get Kyle Rittenhouse (who is an online student) kicked out of ASUpic.twitter.com/qHy4xM6nri — Libs of Tik Tok (@Libs of Tik Tok) 1638069937 The ASU chapter of Students for Socialism additionally told Fox News in statement: The goal of these demands is to let the ASU administration know that we as the ASU community do not feel safe knowing that a mass shooter, who has expressed violent intentions about ‘protecting property’ over people, is so carelessly allowed to be admitted to the school at all. Our campus is already unsafe as is, and we would like to abate this danger as much as possible. ... Rittenhouse took the lives of innocent people with the intent to do so—by strapping an assault rifle to himself in a crowd of unarmed citizens. That is the textbook definition of intention. The decision made by the court is one of thousands of cases that have been influenced by biased judges, predominantly white juries, and mistakes inherent in a judicial system founded off of...
    Some of Kyle Rittenhouse's fellow students at Arizona State University want him expelled even though a jury found he acted in self-defense when he shot two people dead during riots in Wisconsin last year. Rittenhouse, who takes online classes, recently said he would like to attend in person at some point. But a coalition of liberal student groups is calling on school administrators to kick him out. "Even with a not-guilty verdict from a flawed 'justice' system, Kyle Rittenhouse is still guilty to his victims and the family of those victims," the coalition wrote in a statement posted on Friday. "Join us to demand from ASU that those demands be met to protect students from a blood-thirsty murderer."

    Woke students at Arizona State University have demanded that 'blood-thirsty' Kyle Rittenhouse be booted from the college after he was acquitted of murder. Rittenhouse, 18, was cleared after shooting dead two white men and wounding a third at a Black Lives Matter protest in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August 2020. He revealed during his testimony earlier this month that he was an ASU student. The university have since confirmed he is enrolled as an online student - a position he could have kept even if he was convicted, because criminal background checks are not required to take online classes. But an alliance of left-wing student groups, The Arizona State University Students for Socialism, Students for Justice in Palestine, Multicultural Solidarity Coalition, and MECHA de ASU, are demanding that 'murderer Kyle Rittenhouse' be withdrawn from the university.
