Columbia is my alma mater, and I was quite aware of the antisemitic nature of life on campus today.  That's why I have stopped donating, and will not start until this problem is actively controlled.
 
"Cornell University came in second place followed by George Mason University, Loyola University Chicago, Portland State University, San Diego State University and San Francisco State University. Rounding off the list was Temple University, University of California Los Angeles and Vassar College."
New York’s Columbia University is home to the worst antisemitic activity in the United States, according to a list compiled by the David Horowitz Freedom Center, a conservative think-tank based in California. The Center unveiled its first list of the 10 US campuses with the worst antisemitic activity in 2014 as part of a new campaign entitled “Jew Hatred on Campus,” aimed at bringing awareness to antisemitism at colleges and universities througho...

I'm impressed with what Google sent me.  Apparently, they found the pictures I had taken on my recent Monterey vacation, downloaded them from my Android phone, used the GPS locations to figure out the addresses of the old buildings I had photographed, added a map showing where I was, found two interesting shots for the "cover," and organized the rest of the photos, all (I assume) without human intervention.

+Luca de Alfaro Maybe I'm naive, but I don't worry if Google machines know where I've been.  As far as I can tell, no person at Google learns anything about me, except now +Joseph Smarr has been brought into the discussion because I shared the "story" that his machines created.

A sign of the times.  Stanford's Meyer Library is being torn down, not to be replaced.  Many years ago, most of Stanford's book collection was moved to a warehouse in Livermore, and people who really really needed to see a physical book could request it on 24-hour notice.

An old African proverb says "When an old man dies, a library burns to the ground". The other way round one could say demolishing a library is like murdering an old man.

I received the email below from info@nfdomain.com It looks like a clear case of cybersquatting.  Does anyone know how to combat this sort of behavior?

well me too i was thinking Professor Ullman has not this intent. i would help.
i simply told about this tech solution, because with it you don't need an spamassassin setup, and you have with that a "legal tool" to fight them in tribunal if you need to.
you don't need a anti-spam because if you send a certified mail to a normal recipient then it receives it, but cannot send back an email.
if one writes you then he have to use a certified mail account. so no spam enters your email box. if they write you by means of a certified mail this is considered equipollent to a legal mail and so if you need to, you can place a complaint or ask your lawyer to  intimate them to stop, legally.
stopping them to do that is not simple and even it's annoying they are simply trying to sell something, and this is allowed.
if placing some [at] and [dot] in the mail address is not possible then i think the certified mail solution is smart enough to get them out. many years ago,
my email was bombed by lottery scams, dating scams and so on, only because i published my email on the net.
i played with them, and i have evidences of scam (i still have all the emails) and i have evidences they don't read your answers, they read only some line when it's time to ask you for money.
and i tryed to help people who sent money to them, because i don't like this behavour!
their loved mail reader is called "the bat", it's a good product, i know it features a good regex engine, mass mail, regex substitutions and a lot of other goodies for scammers.
so if you receive an mail and you spot the bat in the headers you are the target of annoying scammers.
this is the story, so,in my experiece,  you have a blonde from russia asking for the ticket to reach you, and they continue to ask even if you tell them you are in japan to help as a volunteer in fukushima :)
they tell you the blonde has no money and she is alone in moscow, she has nothing to eat,because she used all her money to make documents, and so on.
but if you have in mind they are joking you then you have so many tools to foolish them that you enjoy having to do with russian and nigerian scammers.
and magically they stop!
they delete your mail and you can pull the cap of a good bottle of sparkly white wine :)
at the time i had so much time that i would help all the people being scammed :)
by the way have you any idea on how they achieve the goal of being untraceable?
their emails bounced from england to russia to spain and was difficoult to trace them.
one time i answered to them: how you can tell me you are a blonde from russia when i have evidence your mail comes from a spanish broken account owned by metropolitane headquarters in madrid?
well, my friend Boris from russia that time stopped to bore me and went away.
the registerd email i think is the final solution for anyone.
thank you very much,
ciao

Thomas Friedman gave the Daniel Pearl Lecture at Stanford last week.  If you remember, Daniel Pearl was the reporter slaughtered by Islamic terrorists in Pakistan.  He was the son of Turing award winner Judea Pearl.  Here's the link to the program:  http://youtu.be/yGoaOrlEDCs  I especially want to call your attention to the section at about 1:04:00 where he explains why the Clinton peace plan is the only way to solve the Israel/Arab problem, and calls out the BDS movement for their hypocrisy.

Here's a new scam.  I got a (snail-mail) letter from "Remington Registries of Outstanding Professionals" saying I had been nominated for inclusion in their book of heroes.  The letter was addressed to "Jeff Ullman or current resident."  Oh, and it only costs $14 to be included, and I get a "beautiful plaque."

+Jeffrey Ullman , there are two well known axioms of real-estate.  The most famous is "The three most important aspects of property are: location, location, location".  Only slightly less famous is, "Only heroes can buy property from heroes."  So you see, they were only taking advantage of this rule.

Here's some good news indeed.  http://www.standwithus.com/news/article.asp?id=3784
The student court has ruled against the recent UC Davis resolution to support the BDS-ers.  The basis for the ruling was that the issue is outside the scope of what the student senate is charged to cover.  But an especially important point made by the court is:  "In the limited time available, student senators could not be expected to grasp all the complexities of the century-old Palestinian-Israeli conflict."  It sounds condescending, until I remember that when I was of the same age as the typical student representative, I was pro-Palestinian.  It took a good number of years of watching the behavior of the parties involved to understand that Israelis want to live in peace with their neighbors, but their neighbors want to drive the Jews out of a territrory that they believe, for religious reasons, can only be ruled by Moslems.

Holly and I took a brief vacation in Monterey.  Saw the usual ocean life, but I'll share one picture -- a penguin at the Aquarium trying to learn how to use a hula hoop.  No luck on that score the day we were there.

If you know anything about Israel, you know the area around Gaza is flat desert, and there are no dams.

Left-wing news outlets (that's mostly redundant) regularly engage in slander against Israel. They're just being more overt and clumsy than usual in this case.

I was at a fundraiser last Saturday, and they featured a popular singer named Colbie Caillat (which she pronounces like the city "Calais").  I guess I'm showing my age, because I never heard of her.  But the experience reminded me of why I have stopped following popular music.  The music of the 60's may not have been profound, but it wasn't all about the insecurities of teenage girls.

New Delhi is the last stop on my current India trip.  I had Sunday off, and I am staying at the very posh TCS guest house on Prithvirage Rd.   So I thought I would walk over to the "Khan Market."  Interestingly, last time I was staying here, Google Maps had it mislocated, and my attempt to find it led me up somebody's driveway, until I was chased away by a guard.  This time, it was located correctly.  It's a big block full of fancy shops and restaurants of the kind you find in Stanford Shopping Center (no surprise -- the people around the area are rich).  There is complete gridlock, as cars vie for the very limited amount of parking.  Being on foot was a definite advantage.   Didn't buy anything, but worth seeing.

For several months I had been asking to test drive the Accord Hybrid Touring model. I was told repeatedly that they would only let me drive the car if I first signed a contract to buy it. After repeated calls to management, I finally got them to agree to let me drive it "around the block," which I did. The car is impressive, but it is still hard to get one. I'm not sure what is holding back the supply, and I may not be able to wait until one comes in. But I'm glad to see that they are rethinking their policy about no-test-drives. In the long run, it will serve them well, because like every other model, eventually the hybrid supply will match demand, and they will be glad that they have built up interest in the car.
