Now that oppression is rampant on our nation’s campuses, many colleges and universities have established “bias teams” and “diversity officers” whose job it is to root out and eliminate any whiff of patriarchy or disenfranchisement before social justice warriors melt down, safe spaces are invaded and entire campus communities collapse under the weight of their own manufactured outrage.

"There was a social gathering in the dorms and I overheard Jeremy mention that when he was over in India, it was difficult to find a public restroom. Damien said he had the same problem when he was an exchange student in China.

So what? Are they suggesting that people who defecate in private are somehow better than everyone else? This is Western privilege at its worst."

>* Exceeding market losses at Enron. The Texas-based energy firm, which once was also a darling with many professional and individual investors, was worth $60 billion at the end of 2000 before it imploded following an accounting scandal and stock investors were wiped out, according to research from Harvard Business School professors Paul Healy and Krishna Palepu. That means Apple investors have lost four times more in paper losses...

>* Ranking among biggest wealth destroyers. The $240 billion lost on Apple makes it the fourth largest market value loss among current members of the Standard & Poor's 500 from their all-time highs to now, according to a USA TODAY analysis of data from S&P Global. Cisco Systems (CSCO)'s $419 billion loss from its dot-com bubble top on March 27, 2000 remains the largest amount lost. But Apple's loss even exceeds that on Exxon Mobil (XOM), which has taken a hit from the implosion of oil prices. Shares of Exxon are only down 13%, or $71 billion, from its all-time high in July 2014.

>* Depressing the Dow. Apple has been an unwelcome drag on the Dow Jones industrial average ever since it was added March 19, 2015. During that time, Apple has dropped 26% while the company it replaced, AT&T (T) has jumped 16%. Apple's anchor is a big reason why the Dow is down more than 2% since March 2015, with the stock accounting for about a fourth of the Dow's point loss since joining the average.

>* Recalling past bubbles. It's difficult to compare the Apple implosion with other manias since it's one company while the Internet bubble was characterized by hundreds. But the amount of money lost on Apple’s stock is 20% of the $1.4 trillion value of the Internet bubble near its peak, measured by the USA TODAY Internet 100 on March 2000 of the 83 members with valid historical data. It's important to note that unlike many Internet companies, Apple is highly profitable unlike many dot-coms which imploded. Apple reported a profit of more than $50 billion over the past 12 months.
>>
>Investors can't deny the size of the losses, but many analysts insist it's an opportunity not the start of something worse. The average analyst thinks Apple's stock will be trading for $124 a share in 18 months, which is 31% potential upside. "Its not the first time (Apple stock has) been this inexpensive relative to near-term earnings," McCourt says. "When this last occurred, the optimists were duly rewarded."

24-hour hunger strike failed to convince them

University of Chicago student government representatives are more worried about a food fight with their constituents than the societal problem of mass incarceration.

The General Assembly voted down a resolution to ask the university to bring dining in-house so that it avoids any complicity in the “prison-industrial complex,” and to source more food from local vendors.

It’s another setback for student group The Fight for Just Food (FJF), which staged a fruitless 24-hour hunger strike to convince the university...

The Maroon reported that Mason has said the university is barred from considering “political questions when making institutional decisions” – such as a contractor’s prison ties – because of its Kalven Report, a nearly 50-year-old document that pledges the university to “free inquiry” and “a diversity of viewpoints.”

The university chose Bon Appetit last month after a competitive bidding process, but did not cite Aramark’s prison service as a reason for dumping that company just halfway through its 10-year contract, the Maroon reported.

"Prison slavery" is something I believe in that needs change, but college protesting puts such a bad taste in my mouth thanks to social media warping the idea of activism into attention whoring.

They got dropped because Aramark is a shitty company. I mean think about it, the slop they serve at some prisons is laughable, so would you really want to risk OKing those same meals at a college? College is already a prison in some respects, so they should at least make the food above average.

My college food was great early on, then nosedived and you could see the effect it had on the students. Flunking (or even doing well on) a test and then eating a shitty meal kills morale, which young and emotional students...

I don't know how this will strain small businesses, or corporations on the small side. Every small local business I worked for was willing to pay overtime. It is the corporate giants I've worked for that restrict hours and force salary managers to work 50-60 hours a week at no additional pay. As in zero pay, not even overtime.

Yeah. Sadly I don't think this change will do much, but it might push people to work at smaller businesses. That's always a plus.

It probably won't affect the most-visible small businesses that you're thinking of because the workers in question are more-lucratively-paid anyway - they're lower middle class. We're not talking about a minimum wage errand boy at the doughnut shop.

I would suspect the most likely-to-be-affected small businesses are smalltime contractors that require skilled professionals, like a local land survey business which would make use of professional...

Burlington College announced today that it will close on May 27 after it found itself unable to recover from “the crushing weight of the debt” incurred under Jane O’Meara Sanders, the college’s former president and wife of Bernie Sanders.

At the end of 2010, Ms. Sanders took out $10 million in loans on behalf of Burlington College to purchase a 32-acre swathe of land from the Roman Catholic diocese, which put the land up for sale to help cover the costs of a $17 million sexual-abuse settlement.
