How Rick Singer started the college admissions cheating scandal? It began with a reality TV audition

Rick Singer looks straight into the camera, auditioning for his own reality show about the cutthroat world of college admissions. Wearing a light blue sweater vest, he pitches himself as a “life-coach” for families desperate to get their kids into Stanford, Yale and USC. He has the look of a tennis pro and a voice that could pass for New York “fixer” Michael Cohen. “This is a game,’’ he says on the production company video submitted to a network in 2010 and unearthed last week by TMZ . “Just rea...

Behold the Anciente Mappe of Fairyland, a Fantastical 1917 Mashup of Tales from Homer’s Odyssey, King Arthur, the Brothers Grimm & More

For most of publishing history, books for children meant primers and preachy religious texts, not mythical worlds invented just for kids. It’s true that fairy tales may have been specifically targeted to the young, but they were never childish. (See the original Grimms' tales.) By the 19th century, however, the situation had dramatically changed. And by the turn of the century, childlike fairy stories and fantasies enjoyed wide popularity among grown-ups and children alike, just as they do toda...

Ultrasonic Groundhogs?

Have you ever noticed how the groundhogs you see on top often end up being the hardest ones to dig to?Now a study in the journal Nature may explain why. It turns out that Richardson's Ground Squirrel uses ultrasonic calls, inaudible to most other ears, to sound the alarm and warn others in the colony that a predator is about. The squirrel's ultrasonic calls, dubbed "whisper calls," are in the 50-kilohertz range-far above the 20 kilohertz that humans can hear.Not surprisingly, there is also some ...

College Cheating Scandal

Opinion Ask your average college president, provost or administrator whether he bothers promoting political diversity among faculty. I'll guarantee that if he is honest — or even answers the question — he will say he doesn't believe in that kind of diversity and inclusion.

UCLA men’s basketball season in review: End of Steve Alford era opens uncertain future

As time wound down in UCLA’s season-ending loss to Arizona State in the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 Tournament in Las Vegas, Pac-12 Networks announcer Ted Robinson said he couldn’t imagine a more uncertain time for the prestigious program.

USC men’s basketball season in review: Trojans never took flight in 2019

USC basketball coach Andy Enfield was already a little irritated. It was mid-October, three weeks before the Trojans were to play their first game. About half of the team’s scholarship players were sidelined for practices. Their 5-on-5 workouts were postponed. “It’s been the most unusual preseason in our coaching careers,” Enfield lamented at the time. A critical period for a reworked roster to jell was lost. The early setbacks were signs the Trojans’ season was poised for trouble. They never se...

It’s UC Irvine, and it might hang around for a bit. The Anteaters, who swept through the Big West and take a 30-4 record to the Dance, have size (as always), experience and stubbornness on defense. They’ve received a fairly favorable draw – by Big West standards, anyway – a No. 13 seed and a first game...

With so much going on, who can remember what happened the last time Virginia was the No. 1 seed in the South Region? Oh right, everyone does.

After a stellar regular season – the only losses were to No. 1 overall seed Duke — now the Cavs are right back in the same spot. Will the added motivation lead to their first Final Four in 35 years, or will the added pressure lea...

In both instances, their archrivals did not have their star freshman Zion Williamson on the floor. Williamson suffered a mild knee sprain in the early minutes during their first meeting in late February when his shoe split and later was ou...
