Animal Rights Activists 'Die' In Berkeley
Animal Rights Activists 'Die' In Berkeley

To raise awareness for the rights of animals to enjoy "total liberation," especially from medical research, a group of international protesters with the group Direct Action Everywhere, staged a "die in" at UC Berkeley. On top of the medical testing that takes place at the left-wing university, the activists also claim the Berkeley labs engage in animal cruelty.
The protesters apparently see no moral, medical, or ethical difference between any sort of animal and a human being.
“Even if they aren’t violating the Animal Welfare Act, UC Berkeley is a place of terrible suffering for anyone who isn’t a human,” said Brian Burns, an activist and recent graduate of Head-Royce School in Oakland. “Just because someone is different from you — be it a dog, a cat, a pig or a rat — does not mean they deserve to be hurt or killed.” ...
“In the moment, (the benefit) might seem like it’s a fair tradeoff,” said activist Felicia Baeza, a part-time student at Evergreen Valley College, about medical testing. “But overall, you’re just keeping the idea alive that certain beings are less than.”
The "die in" was meant to address the contradiction of the practice of life sciences resulting in the deaths of animals.

The Alger Hiss Case
A Half-Century of Controversy
The Alger Hiss Case (U)
It has been 50 years since Alger Hiss was convicted of perjury for denying that he had been a Soviet spy, but his case continues to fascinate and stir controversy. The reasons for this are not surprising. The case had all the elements of a fine drama: compelling characters, accusations of treason, unusual evidence, the launching of a presidential career, and enough inconsistencies and ambiguities to leave the issue of guilt or innocence in doubt for decades. Indeed, when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991, one of the first goals of historians was to gain access to Moscow's archives and settle the question. Although no specific file on Hiss has been released from the KGB or GRU archives, enough material has been found in other files--in Moscow, Eastern Europe, and Washington--to enable historians to write several new works that leave almost no room for doubt about Hiss's guilt. These developments also have significant implications for the intelligence professional today.
