Tracking rape, on and off campus

March 25, 2015

Campus rape is a serious problem. But while public attention is focused on students carrying mattresses and the discredited Rolling Stone report about rape at the University of Virginia, the fact is that sexual assault is more common off campus than on.

Deutsche Bank’s long round trip

Deutsche Bank inserted two bold new financial targets into its annual report in 2000. Thanks to “the enhancement of our organisational structure”, the German bank committed itself to “planned annual growth in earnings per share of at least 15 percent” for the subsequent three years, and an average annual return on equity of “more than 15 percent”.

Who let the dogs out? The U.S. Park Service, potentially.

The federal agency may soon employ dogs - border collies, to be specific - to chase off and ultimately reduce the Canada goose population at popular Washington, D.C., landmarks, according to Reuters. It's not that Canadian geese are unpatriotic per se (though the irony is rich); the birds drop up to three pounds of feces each per day, presenting undeniable problems. The goose poop is reportedly damaging the pumps and filters in the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool and generally fowling up the Washington Monument grounds in the nation's capital.

No, the college your kids go to won’t decide their destiny

March 25, 2015

New York Times columnist Frank Bruni, himself a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, thinks it’s time to take much of the anxiety out of the college admittance process. His new book, Where You Go Is Not Who You Will Be, gives some pretty good reasons to relax – at least a little.
