Rutgers’ French professor Francois Cornilliat, who protested Rice’s appearance, also said he would welcome the former secretary of state on campus for a debate or presentation. “But a commencement speech is not any old speech, it is an honor” that Rice is not worthy of.

That just beyond me. Steven D. Gaines, dean of the Bren School of Environmental Science and Management at the University of California at Santa Barbara, said researchers are developing more effective tools to estimate fish populations, by looking at the size of the fish and how fish are faring inside and outside marine reserves. “It’s really transforming the opportunity for us to assess where the fisheries are at the moment and take corrective action early on to correct overfishing,” he said..
