At 4:45 p.m. today, a last-minute attempt by Cornell Students for Justice in Palestine to force a vote on an anti-Israel divestment resolution during Passover, will come up as “new business,” as previously reported.  That would set up the Resolution for a full vote next Thursday, in the middle of Passover.

Being anti-Israel is the easiest thing to be in academia these days.

An example is the recommendation by the National Council of the American Studies Association for a boycott of Israeli academic organizations. The vote of the membership is pending, with voting closing on December 15.

I detailed yesterday how one ASA member,...

It’s hard being a principled member of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement.

With Israel being a leader in computer, medical and other technologies, one would have to enter a time machine back to the 1950s to truly boycott Israeli products.

The so-called knockout game is receiving a lot of media attention.

It’s hard to know if it is escalating in frequency, or just getting more media coverage:

In addition to the real shutdowns at the WWII Memorial and elsewhere, we can expect to see all sorts of non-shutdowns blamed on the federal government partial shutdown.

I noticed this along a path in the Collegetown section of Ithaca, a path along the Gorge next to the Schwartz Theater.  That path...

Umm, let me think on that.

I have until September 12 at 4 p.m. to decide.

This event sponsored by the Cornell Law School 2nd Amendment Club is open to the public, although good luck finding parking!

Update: In response to some reader inquiries, I’m not sure if there will be a live stream,...

I received a mass email from the person who founded and runs Cornell Law School’s Legal Information Institute, celebrating the birth of the world wide web 20 years ago and the fact that Cornell’s LII was there when the lights went on, along with 24 other active servers:

Parking in a university lot with an anti-Obama bumper sticker.

From a reader on staff at Cornell:

I don’t remember seeing this bumper sticker on your site.

The photo was taken in the parking lot of Cornell’s parking office.

The conservative undergraduate bi-weekly newspaper on campus, The Cornell Review, has a new website where you can read the newspaper in a pretty cool viewer.  Kathleen is the Executive Editor.  Pretty soon they will integrate the Cornell Insider, the blog affiliate, into the website.
