Pew: Most Republicans View Higher Education as Bad for America

58% of GOP views college bad for AmericaRepublicans and Democrats offer starkly different assessments of the impact of several of the nation’s leading institutions – including the news media, colleges and universities and churches and religious organizations – and in some cases, the gap in these views is significantly wider today than it was just a year ago.

While a majority of the public (55%) continues to say that colleges and universities have a positive effect on the way things are going in the country these days, Republicans express increasingly negative views.


Judge Overturns Utah's 'Ag-Gag' Ban On Undercover Filming At Farms

Utah Ag-gag law overturnedA federal judge has ruled Utah's ban on secretly filming farm and slaughterhouse operations is unconstitutional, striking down what critics call an "ag-gag" law that Utah enacted in 2012.

The ban violates the First Amendment's free-speech protections, U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby said.

Shelby rejected the state's defense of the law, saying Utah had failed to show the ban was intended to ensure the safety of animals and farm workers from disease or injury.

3rd mistrial in case of ex-cop accused of killing daughter's black boyfriend

Ex-cip gets 3rd mistrial in killing of daughter's black boyfriendFor the third time in less than a year a jury deadlocked on Friday and forced a mistrial in the murder case of a white former Oklahoma police officer accused of killing his daughter's black boyfriend, astonishing prosecutors and frustrating the boyfriend's family.

Judge Sharon Holmes declared the mistrial in the case of former Tulsa police officer Shannon Kepler, who was accused of fatally shooting 19-year-old Jeremey Lake in August 2014, not long after Lake started dating Kepler's then-18-year-old daughter, Lisa. Attorneys involved said the jurors deliberated for 2 ½ to three hours.


Harvard social club revokes membership for 9 women, reverts to all-male status

Harvard social clup expels womenA 2-year-old project of admitting women to a traditionally all-male Harvard social club, which counts T.S. Eliot and Bill Gates among its ranks, has ended abruptly with the alumni-heavy board revoking the provisional membership of all nine women.

The unexpected decision last month, first reported by The Harvard Crimson, deeply divided the Fox Club, pitting undergraduates against alumni. Membership is for life, and alumni largely control the club through its graduate board.

Hawaii judge declines to define travel banA federal court judge declined to clarify the scope of the government's travel ban, telling Hawaiian plaintiffs to seek guidance from the U.S. Supreme Court.
