"The row has prompted the University of London Union Senate, the union's legislative body, which represents more than 120,000 students, to vote unanimously for the dismissal of Kanazawa, and to condemn his research."
"Jibril's enterprise is not only an example of the evolving multicultural dynamic within the US workplace, but also the role of women. According to Joyce Stanley, head of the Dudley Square Main Streets Program, a city initiative to support business development in the community, there are nine businesses that were started up by African women in the area, many of them in the last four years alone."
"Montgomery's former Greyhound Bus Station is reopening as a museum honoring the Freedom Riders on the 50th anniversary of the day they were attacked in Alabama's capital city.

'It's not a brain drain, but a hemorrhage,' exclaims Wadhwa. 'Flawed US immigration policies along with opportunities in India and China have hastened this trend.'"
"Reverby said that the study came up with no useful data, and was hidden for decades. Records of the experiments suggest that despite intentions, it is likely that not everyone was cured, she said.
