New analysis by Harvard Kennedy School’s Thomas Patterson finds the conflicted motivation of news outlets covering the 2016 election has resulted in significantly lopsided and disparate attention paid to the Republican and Democratic candidates.

Donald Trump got the most coverage of any candidate running on either side, the vast majority of which was favorable in tone, according to the study.

Chompsky Loves West Point. He gave a great presentation there, not long ago.
But at Harvard Kennedy School of Government, he gave a better presentation when debating Dershowitz.
Of course, Chompsky won the debate.
Chompsky won the debate because, basically, he was schooled at PENN before decamping to MIT.
No one can out-debate a PENN grad.

The richest American men live 15 years longer than the poorest men, while the richest American women live 10 years longer than the poorest women, according to the Health Inequality Project.
A new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that income is closely correlated with life expectancy, with the richest Americans living as much as 15 years longer than the poorest — and even the poor living longer in wealthy areas.

Harvard University, along with many other selective colleges and universities, has long championed the importance of a diverse student body, contending in amicus briefs in the University of Texas case and others that a diverse community is essential to creating an educational experience that prepares students for future success.

A link between deficits in gut flora and brain inflammation may lead researchers to learn more about its impact on multiple sclerosis.

#multiplesclerosis   #health   #science  
Using pre-clinical models for multiple sclerosis and samples from MS patients, a Harvard-affiliated team found evidence that changes in diet and gut flora may influence astrocytes in the brain, and, consequently, neurodegeneration, pointing to potential therapeutic targets.

When it came time for Hawking to speak, before a group of 70 crowded into Vafa’s living room, he delivered a story not about science, but about a trip he took to Iran in 1962, shortly before he was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

A day after attending Stephen Hawking’s talk at Harvard, reporter Peter Reuell received an invitation from Cumrun Vafa — would he be interested in attending a dinner party in Hawking’s honor?
