If you wish to work in the (ahem) growing field of Marijuana cultivation and distribution, you'll be happy to know there's a university where you can learn every angle of the trade. Oaksterdam University in Oakland, California offers a full range of Cannabis related studies. NBC4 reports:
Oakland University offers marijuana education With California voters getting ready to decide whether or not to allow adults to use marijuana recreationally, would-be entrepreneurs are looking to possibly cash in on what some consider to be the state’s next gold rush.

Back in March, we blogged about a story from San Francisco State University that could only happen on one of today's college campuses. A white male student was accosted by a young black woman who was also a student because he was wearing his hair in dreadlocks. The woman claimed this was a form of cultural appropriation. At the time, I wrote:
One of the most interesting aspects of this situation is the male student’s insistence that the young woman has no right to tell him what to wear.

The fear of clowns is called Coulrophobia and it's quite common. What happened this week at Auburn University might seem like another classic case of campus hysteria, but there is apparently some real cause for concern. WKRG News reported recently that creepy clowns on social media issued threats and caused a lock down at two grade schools in Alabama. Here's a video report:

We have followed the problems at Oberlin College for years. Rather than revisiting everything, please scroll through our Oberlin Tag. The most recent incident involved Professor Joy Karega, who posted blatantly anti-Semitic conspiracy theories on Facebook, including linking the Rothschild family to a global conspiracy. Karega Rotshchild Image Karega also accused Israel of attacking Charlie Hebdo as part of a false flag operation and being the equivalent of ISIS.

Yesterday the University of California at Berkeley rescinded its suspension of a course, Ethnic Studies 198: Palestine: A Colonial Settler Analysis—a vehemently anti-Israel, one-credit, once-a-week, student-led course. The entire purpose of the course appears to be political advocacy and organizing, in violation of university policy for an academic class. California Regents Policy 2301 provides:
“The Regents…are responsible to ensure that public confidence in the University is justified. And they are responsible to see that the University remain aloof from politics and never function as an instrument for the advance of partisan interest. Misuse of the classroom by, for example, allowing it to be used for political indoctrination…constitutes misuse of the University as an institution”.
The course was so obviously political advocacy that the course poster [see Featured Image and below] used the completely discredited BDS propaganda map which was so false and misleading that MNSBC apologized for once using it during a news segment.
