Earlier this month, China’s national health policy agency National Health Commission listed Tan Re Qing as one of its recommended coronavirus treatments. Wildlife advocates have since criticized said recommendation as it runs contradictory to China’s earlier commitment to shutting down the live animal trade for food.

 

However, Skidmore’s post went well beyond criticizing the Chinese government and its policies as she directly condemned the Chinese people.

 

“There a special place in hell reserved for the f*ing Chinese and their archaic culture,” she said at the beginning of her post.

Eleventh grade students at Harding Charter Preparatory High School told KFOR-TV the recruiter from Oklahoma Christian University visited Monday and, during a gathering at the gym, first asked them to line up from darkest to lightest skin. After dispersing that line, he had them stand based on their hair.

 

“He told us to line up nappiest hair in the back and straightest hair in the front,’’ junior student Rio Brown said in an interview with the Oklahoma City station.

Boston University grad student Kristin Hugo required to pay ~$6,000 to work a summer internship

Kristin, along with other students in her master’s program, was expected to pay her university thousands of dollars to work a summer internship at a separate institution in a different city.

At BU, I often felt like, You guys are always trying to reach into my back pocket, what is the deal? For a while I thought it was kind of sinister, but the school is technically a non-profit institution. Still, the year I was there the president made $2.48 million. It was like, C’mon, I’m eating out of trash here!

To me, the weirdest part about this whole thing is that schools charging students to intern is actually kind of common. It’s wonderful that people are starting to pay attention to the exploitation of interns as free labor, but it seems that few people have issues with universities charging people to do them.

One year after revelations of admissions bribery scandal, California’s oldest private university USC offers free tuition to students from families making under $80,000; home ownership will not factor in need

The changes will be phased in beginning with first-year students entering USC in the fall of 2020 and the spring of 2021, the university said.

Folt, the former chancellor of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, was named USC’s president in 2019 as the university was addressing a series of major scandals, including the college admissions bribery case.

That scandal came in the wake of allegations that USC ignored complaints of widespread sexual misconduct by longtime campus gynecologist George Tyndall and an investigation into a medical school dean accused of smoking methamphetamine with a woman who overdosed.
