* Run the university like a business! Efficiency! Synergy! Dynamism!

Due to its 2010 renovation of Memorial Stadium, Cal Athletics is obligated to pay annual interest of $18.1 million until principal starts to be paid back in 2032. According to the new financial model within the report by professors from the Haas School of Business, the debt payments may rise to as high as $81.9 million in 2053.

* NCAA Reduces Penalties On Penn State For Sandusky Scandal.

* The NFL ripoff.

Taxpayers fund the stadiums, antitrust law doesn’t apply to broadcast deals, the league enjoys nonprofit status, and Commissioner Roger Goodell makes $30 million a year. It’s time to stop the public giveaways to America’s richest sports league—and to the feudal lords who own its teams.

* As I work to organize adjunct faculty in Ohio and nationally, my own biggest fear is that any successes we have will erase our collective memory of our adjunct experience and desensitize us to the reality of the least advantaged of our students. If our efforts re-gild instead of reclaim the ivory tower, then we will have failed our students and ourselves. Adjuncts, Class, and Fear. Casual Labor and the Future of the Academy. Adjunct professors are the new working poor.

* Tenure nightmare: A cautionary tale for those needing a Green Card to work in the U.S.

H. Adam Ackley, Transgender Theology Professor, Asked To Leave California’s Azusa Pacific University.

* Ninth Circuit Clarifies First Amendment Rights of Public University Professors.

* And the world’s largest tortoise found. Whoa. THE WORST NEWS SINCE @horse_ebooks.

      • It’s still real if we just believe.
