Antisemitism, Violence and Free Speech: Reflections on the Decay of Sept. 11, 2001, at the Tevatron
Many Jews reacted terribly to that clip. Jewish people of many different political persuasions have been stunned by the rank antisemitism and contempt for Israeli lives that has exploded across campuses, where Jewish students have been threatened and, in some cases, assaulted.

Speaking about his new show ‘The Daily Show’, host Jon Stewart said, “I’m not saying I’m going to take it for granted anymore.

US President Joe Biden did not intentionally retain or disclose classified information, according to the report by a special counsel commissioned by the Justice Department.

Researchers have found that hominin remains from the 2016-2022 and 1932-1938 excavations at a site in Czech Republic are associated with a range of animal taxa including Neanderthals and modern humans. The hominin remains were in most cases excavated on the same day or within a day of the discovery of LRJ artefacts in the same squares.
