What is a diversified portfolio? (with examples)

When it comes to building the best investment portfolio, you’ll often hear that diversification is key. But what does that even mean — and why do you need to bother with it? After all, you already own a wide range of stocks, from that skyrocketing Amazon stock to your Apple and eBay stocks, and you’re raking in the profits. What could go wrong? If you’re relying on a portfolio filled with big tech stocks or energy stocks to get you through to retirement — or if you’re banking on picking th...

Colbert and Diversity Changes to the ABA's Standards and Rules

Every fair-minded person who heard the recording of the meeting between the Yale Law School diversity administrators and Trent Colbert over his Constitution Day invitation has concluded that something was seriously amiss in the way the administrators handled the incident. Indeed, the administrators’ views and urgings are so astonishing that without the recording it would be hard to believe the meeting even happened in the way it did. However things now shake out at Yale (an assessment is underwa...

A growing number of colleges are abolishing student loans to avoid making the $1.7 trillion debt crisis worse

Camille Tokerud/Getty Images A growing number of colleges are removing student loans from financial aid packages, offering grants instead. Colgate University, for example, is offering grants to students with family incomes under $150,000. Only a small number of schools have taken those steps as the student debt crisis continues to grow. A growing number of colleges are taking the $1.7 trillion student debt crisis into their own hands by making it impossible for students to take out loans ...

Can We Have More Productive Conversations About Climate Change?

Global warming is wreaking havoc. Whether it’s devastating wildfires, more frequent and severe storms, droughts, or loss of coastal land, we know that the planet is warming and that our human emissions are the problem. Why then are so many of us concerned about climate change but doing little about it? That question is at the heart of climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe’s new book, Saving Us: A Climate Scientist’s Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World. In her book, Hayhoe explains the ...

A Beautifully Illustrated Edition of On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century, the Bestselling Book by Historian Timothy Snyder

For all its talk of liberty, the US government has practiced dehumanizing authoritarianism and mass murder since its founding. And since the rise of fascism in the early 20th century, it has never been self-evident that it cannot happen here. On the contrary — wrote Yale historian Timothy Snyder before and throughout the Trump presidency — it happened here first, though many would like us to forget. The histories of southern slavocracy and manifest destiny directly informed Hitler’s plans for t...

L'Affaire Trap House at Yale Law School

 The movement for diversity and inclusion has improved people’s lives in many tangible ways. A few days ago at Northwestern Law School, where I’m a professor, I went into the men’s restroom and saw that the school had provided tampons and sanitary pads on a shelf there. It made me happy. There are people here who menstruate and identify as male. Their needs matter, and the school now recognizes that.  But in other respects, the diversity and inclusion movement is becoming the enemy of diversity ...

"Now, could someone write an erudite, historically informed analysis arguing for why 'trap house' should be considered offensive?"

"Sure—and [Yale Law School diversity director] Yaseen Eldik, in his lecture to the sender of the email, has provided a helpful outline. But if you have to write a mini-dissertation on why something should be seen as offensive—or deliver a twenty-minute speech, as Eldik did—then it’s… probably not offensive.... In situations like this one, involving an allegedly offensive communication, law schools should have a 'meet and confer' requirement, like courts do when it comes to discovery disputes. Be...

Arcadia wants to shut down sex therapist-radio host’s local studios

A zoning dispute in Arcadia has pitted a larger-than-life sex therapist against code enforcement officers and, along the way, involved a registered sex offender, an unprecedented court order for a surprise inspection and a painting of a half-nude Marilyn Monroe. The sex therapist and her colorful partner-slash-husband say they’re just misunderstood. The city, which initially suspected them of running an adult business, says they’re unlawfully converting their internet studios compound into a hom...

15 Must-See Movies About College, Ranked

College is a time to let loose, unfettered by the restraints that make high school such a prison. As a result, movies that revolve around the college experience have a tendency to embrace a wild atmosphere. Despite the general concept of university as a place to get an education, the focus in college movies tends to be on partying first, studying later. That's the stereotype of a college film, anyway: toga parties and sororities and hazing as far as the eye can see. But the reality (much like th...

The New Jeopardy Champion is a `A CS grad student from a school in New Haven'

Of course, that website will change. 1) They refer to him as A CS grad student from a school in New Haven. My first thought was probably Yale, but whatever it is, they should just say it.

The Power Of The Dog Review: Jane Campion's Stunning Neo-Western Has A Career-Best Performance From Benedict Cumberbatch [TIFF 2021]

"What kind of man would I be if I didn't help my mother?" So says Peter (Kodi Smit-McPhee) at the start of "The Power of the Dog," Jane Campion's quiet-yet-menacing neo-Western. We hear Peter say these words before we've even met him, and it will take almost the entire film before we find out what they truly mean. With this moment, Campion, adapting the novel by Thomas Savage, is setting a trap. The entire film feels like that; like something hypnotizing us, lulling us in, ready to strike us dow...
