Opinion: Art Museums at the Crossroads

American art museums are in a deep financial crisis that threatens their very mission -- the access of the public to great works of art. Today, museums have programs for K-12 schoolchildren, people with Alzheimer's and their caregivers, prison inmates, people with mental and physical challenges, and the general public -- literally millions of visitors every year who want to enjoy and learn from the paintings and sculptures housed in American museums, over 1,000 institutions, large and small, in cities and towns from coast to coast. All of this is at risk, as museums look for solutions to...

Clever Cafeteria Layout Changes Can Transform Children's Nutrition

(Oct. 26) -- Wrist-slaps, restricted options and "Big Brother"-esque monitoring systems aren't the only way to get kids eating healthier meals at school -- nor will the heavy-handed approaches prove to be the most effective alternative in the quest to push whole grains and salads over sodas and french fries. Instead, Cornell researchers, writing in this month's Atlantic, report that tiny tweaks to cafeteria layouts can make remarkable differences in what kids opt to eat. You can see a visual mock-up of their plan at The New York Times. Current efforts to revamp school nutrition often...

Beck University: First Course Faith 101 Provides Education On Demand

Glenn Beck has been called many different things, but "academic" has never been high on the list. That changed last week when the Fox News personality announced his online program called Beck University -- a nine-part series on faith, hope, and charity. For $9.95 a month or $74.95 a year, prospective students can become an "insider extreme" on his website and delve into a "unique academic experience bringing together experts in the fields of religion, American history, and economics," complete with a list of suggested readings after every course. But before you go chomping at the bit to...

Cornell's Win Over Wisconsin Sends Both Teams Home

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Bo Ryan lamented it was a coach's worst nightmare to prepare for Cornell in one day. He was partially correct. Game day was just as bad, if not worse. No. 12 seed Cornell continued its magical journey Sunday afternoon in the NCAA tournament, exploding to an early double-digit lead and sending another favorite home in its 87-69 win over No. 4 Wisconsin here at Veterans Memorial Arena. Here's what the historic second-round victory does for the Big Red of Ithaca, N.Y.: • Advances them to their first-ever Sweet 16 appearance next weekend against No. 1 seeded Kentucky at the...

Centers Give Reason for High Expectations for Duke, Cal, Cornell

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- They are the big men in the middle, three 7-footers who each play different yet important roles on their teams here at the NCAA tournament. There's bearded Duke center Brian Zoubek, who is finally healthy and is credited by coaches and teammates for providing a needed post presence. Say hello to Cornell center Jeff Foote, a recruiting afterthought and a favorite of his head coach. And let's not forget California center Max Zhang, the tallest of the three at 7-foot-3 who continues to gain confidence each time he steps on the floor. The trio's performances -- specifically...

Talented Cornell Underdog in Name Only

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- There were a lot of people who thought Cornell was under-seeded at No. 12 in the NCAA Tournament. Count Wisconsin senior guard Jason Bohannon in that majority. Bohannon caught a portion of the Big Red's opening-round victory over Temple Friday afternoon from the seats of Veterans Memorial Arena. "I mean, watching them yesterday, they show why they're in the tournament," Bohannon said Saturday. "They certainly proved they are as good as anyone." Cornell has surfaced as one of the more compelling stories in The Big Dance, the Ivy League champions who won their first NCAA...

Philly Connection in the River City

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Dunphy, Donahue and Bo. The Philly Connection is alive and well in the River City at the NCAA tournament. By all accounts, there are at least 12 head coaches with Philadelphia connections in this year's Big Dance. Three were sent South to the Sunshine State, here on the banks of the St. Johns River, and two good friends will square off in Friday's opening game -- Fran Dunphy of No. 5 Temple against Steve Donahue of No. 12 Cornell. Bo Ryan's No. 4 Wisconsin Badgers follow in the second game against No. 13 Wofford. Naturally, the three are proud of their heritage. "Well,...

Self Hopes Tough Win Propels Jayhawks

Kansas coach Bill Self knew there would be a night like Wednesday for his No.1 Jayhawks. But against Cornell? Well, the Jayhawks found themselves in one heck of a game against the Ivy League program at Allen Fieldhouse, trailing much of the game before senior guard Sherron Collins' late-game heroics squeaked out a 71-66 win to avoid the season's biggest upset.The win might as well have been a loss as it cast doubt on the team favored to win it all in April. The question now is not just are the Jayhawks the best team in the country, but are they even the best team in the Big 12 with No. 2 Texas...
