Tweet How does Mark Zuckerberg feel about the Facebook movie and books? Mark revealed his opinion of The Social Network movie and the book The Accidental Billionaires by Ben Mezrich on which the film was based by saying, “The reason why we didn’t participate is because it was very clear that it was fiction from the beginning. We talked to [Mezrich] about that and he basically told us, ‘what I’m most interested in is telling the most interesting story. All the book reviews of that book from people who know it say that it’s fiction. The movie is based on the book. I don’t really know how much else there is to say about it. So, I mean that’s why having not read all of your book speaking to author David Kirkpatrick , and I read a part of it when you sent it to me, I at least appreciate the effort that you put in, in terms of spending all those hours and days talking to dozens of people in the ecosystem around us, at least trying to understand what’s going on. If I read your book, I probably wouldn’t agree with everything, but at least there’s the sense that it’s serious journalism. Our research into the real story behind the Facebook movie confirmed that in June , after completing his sophomore year, Mark moved to Palo Alto, California and never returned to Harvard as a student.
Harvard beats Brown 31-17 in 118th meeting
Prior to the Herald report, the public was unaware that Warren claimed to be Cherokee. In none of the public interviews  or testimony she gave prior to that point had Warren revealed that she was Native American. When confronted by reporters, Warren claimed not to know why Harvard  was promoting her as Native American, and said that she only learned of it by reading the newspaper reports. Warren had not previously revealed these law directory entries.
Harvard’s Long March Across The Charles River The university has a long history in Allston, dating back nearly years.
Elizabeth Warren’s struggles over her shameless cultural appropriation scandal, wherein she baselessly claimed Native American ancestry for professional gain — the polar opposite of “checking” her “white privilege,” as the Social Justice Warrior ethos requires. Initially, nearly all of the blowback from her cynical, self-serving hoax was generated on the political Right, with most leftists giving her a pass for her identity politics sins, or simply ignoring them.
Adherence to the, er, tribe’s agenda was the paramount consideration. But with the Woke Olympics in full swing, and amid intense competition among ‘resistance’-pandering politicians to outflank potential rivals, Warren’s vulnerability is starting to gain traction on the Left. In case you missed it, here it is — and if you’ve seen it, the audience’s awkward laughter is worth experiencing again: Matt also wrote up an unsparing piece by an actual Cherokee woman, hammering Warren for her offensive betrayal and demanding an apology.
Perhaps most extraordinary is the fact that this essay was published at the left-wing website Think Progress. She is not from us. She does not represent us. She is not Cherokee In defending her supposed Native identity, Warren has drawn from both racist stereotypes and easily refutable stories about her family.
Which brings us to the front-page story that appeared in the Boston Globe over the weekend. It runs through the ways in which Warren’s ancestry fable has become a real and growing political liability for her among core pieces of the Democratic base.

Apr 27, Matt Kaufman Many say abortion is the closest thing to a solution in cases of rape. Here’s research that shows it isn’t in the best interest of either mother or child. It’s widely held that when dealing with abortion, rape and incest are special cases. Most people will say abortion is the closest thing to a solution in such cases. Even those who disagree — who point out that an innocent child shouldn’t perish for the sins of his father — often share the popular assumption that abortion would be something of a relief to the woman who’s been victimized.
In short, the notion is that the interests of the woman and her child are in conflict: What’s good for one is bad for the other. But is that true? Some Harvard students thought otherwise, and they decided to put forth their dissenting view in a very public way. It was not, and I have been living with that for five years.

Worst toys of the year according to W. We believe the value of sorority is too great. Harvard University has long butted heads with its campus social groups. Though the university has not banned these groups outright, it did institute a series of sanctions penalizing group members.

Executive Vice President, Aspen Institute Harvard, Rhodes, Gender, and Fraternities A key sanction Harvard has adopted in its opposition to single-sex final clubs is to deny their members endorsements for Rhodes Scholarships and other fellowships requiring the University’s imprimatur. Many universities have grappled with the discriminatory implications of single-sex fraternities and sororities, as well as the many undesirable effects they often have on undergraduate culture and behavior, including those relating to alcohol and sexual assault.
Some institutions have successfully banned all such organizations, which is possible though still often very difficult politically when the organizations are supported by or legally linked with the university. But where the organizations are unaffiliated and legally private, banning or regulating them is much more challenging. Harvard University , exasperated by the persistence and influence of unaffiliated single-sex fraternities despite decades of moral jawboning to open their doors to women, recently threw down the gauntlet with a new policy to penalize students who join such private clubs particularly a small number of socially elite ones dating to the 19th century or earlier, with their own elegant buildings in central positions in Harvard Square and called “final clubs”.

For a while, the school was called “Dane Law School. Ashmun, son of Eli Porter Ashmun and brother of George Ashmun , accepted a professorship and closed his Northampton Law School , with many of his students following him to Harvard. Enrollment remained low through the 19th century as university legal education was considered to be of little added benefit to apprenticeships in legal practice.
After first trying lowered admissions standards, in HLS eliminated admissions requirements entirely. At Harvard, Langdell also developed the case method of teaching law, now the dominant pedagogical model at U. Langdell’s notion that law could be studied as a “science” gave university legal education a reason for being distinct from vocational preparation. Critics at first defended the old lecture method because it was faster and cheaper and made fewer demands on faculty and students.
Advocates said the case method had a sounder theoretical basis in scientific research and the inductive method. Langdell’s graduates became leading professors at other law schools where they introduced the case method. The method was facilitated by casebooks. From its founding in , the Association of American Law Schools promoted the case method in law schools that sought accreditation. For example, Dean Berring of University of California, Berkeley School of Law once stated that he “view[ed] Harvard Law School as a samurai ring where you can test your swordsmanship against the swordsmanship of the strongest intellectual warriors from around the nation.
