  • Science Vs. Beliefs On Creationism, Climate

    Throughout the world, the forces of religious fundamentalism are challenging the forces of secular democracy. In the Middle East, the conflict boils into civil war. In the United States, the conflict merely simmers beneath recent Supreme Court rulings...
  • Protection Of State Lakes Gets Little Attention

    Connecticut has more than 3,000 officially named lakes, ponds and reservoirs. A few are the fountainheads from which cities draw potable water. Many are becoming real estate refuges for those retreating from hurricane-hit saltwater shores. Many more are...

    June Rites — Two Gowns, The Future To Go

    UConn's Dominance Shows It Deserves A Bigger Stage

  • Shabazz Scores One For The Players

    Shabazz Scores One For The Players

    Northwestern union vote just small part of drive for NCAA reforms
    Think of Friday's union vote by Northwestern University football players as the necklace in "Titanic," the ruby slippers or the meaning of Rosebud. It's what filmmakers, like the late Alfred Hitchcock, would call a MacGuffin — something pursued and...

    Good Case That College Athletes Are Employees
    Last week, third-graders in Guilford gave me a spontaneous round of applause. Why? Because the teacher introduced me as being from the University of Connecticut, where excellence in basketball has raised my profile, along with that of everyone else in...
