Court backs Texas affirmative action

AFP

A federal appeals court panel ruled that it could use so-called affirmative action as a way of promoting diversity. Last year, the US Supreme Court sent the issue back to lower courts for further review. In a 2-1 ruling, the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the case of a white student denied a place at the Austin, Texas, university in 2008. Abigail Fisher said the policy of considering her race violated her civil and constitutional rights. But the judges found that barring the university from using race would negatively affect the diversity of the campus, which would be…

White House student loan proposal won’t help many

The White House rolled out the proverbial red carpet last week to announce the administration’s latest proposals to make college more affordable for students. But it turns out the latest plan, which will expand a version of income-based repayment to more borrowers with federal student loans, among a few other components, probably won’t do much to make college more affordable, nor will many students likely notice a difference. The specifics of the plan aren’t yet clear. From what we do know, though, the White House plans to offer a version of the income-based repayment plan for student loans it introduced…

QuestCinq.com TALLAHASSEE —As students in the Senate gallery wiped tears from their eyes and the voice of the bill’s sponsor cracked, the Senate approved a measure Thursday that would grant in-state tuition to immigrant students brought to the U.S. illegally as children. Afterward, undocumented students, parents and supporters who had sat on the floor outside the doors to the Senate all week cried, pumped their fists in the air and took selfies with the Senate version’s sponsor, Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater. “I’m a big softy,” said Latvala, whose voice cracked during his final remarks before the vote. “This is a…

BY CHRIS TAYLOR (Reuters) – We all start somewhere. Reuters has proven this edict since last August, when we started asking some of America’s greatest achievers about the first jobs they had. We have talked to chief executives of billion-dollar companies, beloved authors, TV personalities and tech gurus. But then we figured: Let’s talk to an even more elite club. And you can’t get much more exclusive than those who have reached the absolute pinnacle of human achievement: the Nobel Prize. Here, in conjunction with the release of the nation’s monthly jobs report, some American Nobel winners recount their very first…

New York: l’école pour tous à partir de 4 ans

SHANNON STAPLETON, ARCHIVES REUTERS

MARIANO ANDRADENew York-C’était une promesse électorale du nouveau maire de New York Bill de Blasio et elle va devenir réalité : l’école maternelle publique accueillera tous les enfants de la ville à partir de 4 ans dès la rentrée prochaine. Mais M. de Blasio, un démocrate résolument marqué à gauche, a dû ranger dans ses cartons un autre de ses engagements : il voulait imposer plus lourdement les New-Yorkais gagnant plus de 500 000 $ annuels, pour financer le système. Le gouverneur, lui aussi démocrate, de l’État de New York, Andrew Cuomo, lui a coupé l’herbe sous le pied. M. Cuomo a annoncé ce weekend un…

Dwarf planet discovery hints at another planet

NASA ,JPL, Caltech via AFP

Scientists say they’ve found a pink dwarf planet that travels farther from the sun than anything ever seen. Its discovery has led to tantalizing hints that a separate, unknown planet bigger than the Earth lurks at the fringes of the solar system, exerting a stealthy control over its neighbors. The new planet is a celestial bonbon, a dainty, rose-colored ice ball far smaller than tiny Pluto. Its detection helps confirm that the outer stretches of the solar system are a crowded place. An analysis of its orbit and the orbits of other heavenly bodies provides evidence for a super-sized planet…
