/ PAGE 12 POST-GAZETTE, JANUARY 15, 2016 Ray Darron's A Columbia University stu- dent claims that she's been deeply traumatized by reading too many books about white people. Nissy Aya told a uni- versity panel that the school's required "core" course forced her to look at history "through the lens of these powerful white men." As a result of feeling "no power or agency as a black woman," she said, it take her six years to graduate. Two men were booted off a Southwest Airlines flight when a paranoid passenger overheard them speaking Arabic. The men were allowed onto the plane af- ter being questioned by police, but were then forced by other passengers to open a small white box they were carrying, which was full of sweets. "So I shared my Baklava with them," said one of the men. Ah, Bak- lava, one of my favorite sweets. Elaborate excuses, after an Atlanta college student tried to explain why he missed an exam by forging documents stating that he was in jail. When his ruse was discovered, Deonta Stephens was arrested and briefly j ailed. News from Butner, North Carolina. Almost 30 years to the day after he was arrested, convicted spy Jonathan Pol- lard was freed on parole from a North Carolina prison, bring- ing to an end a long-running diplomatic dispute between the U.S. and Israel. The former Navy intelligence analyst was sentenced to life in prison in 1987 for providing a trove of naval intelligence documents to Israeli officials in exchange for about $50,000. Israel ini- tially denied any knowledge of Pollard's espionage, claiming he was working for "rogue" of- ficials, before finally admitting in 1997 that he had been an Israeli agent. Pollard, now 61, was granted Israeli citizenship while in prison, and is said to be weighing whether to renounce his U.S. citizenship, though the terms of his parole forbid him from leaving the country for five years. His attorneys have filed suit in federal court challeng- ing his parole terms, including the requirement that he wear a GPS-equipped ankle bracelet. Bill and Hillary Clinton have raised at least $3 billion in contributions to their vari- ous political campaigns and charitable foundations over the past 41 years. About $1 billion of that total came as political contributions to their various campaigns, and $2 billion went to the Clinton Foundation. For the first time in four decades, more Mexican im- migrants returned to their home country in recent years then entered the U.S. Between 2009 and 2014, an estimated 870,000 Mexicans came to the U.S., while about a million went back to Mexico, a net reduction of 130,000. Be aware, law enforcement officers took more property form Americans last year than bur- glars did. Under civil forfeitures laws, authorities seized $5 bil- lion in property. Burglars took $3.5 billion worth. A Recent poll disclosed 56% of Americans oppose allowing Syrian refugees into the U.S., while 41% favor granting them asylum. Curbing near-sightedness: Myopia, or near-sightedness, affects more than 40% of Ameri- cans, and a growing number of children around the world. But new research suggests this modern-day epidemic could be curbed by simple eye drops. While the effects of near-sight- edness are easily corrected with glasses or contact lenses, the condition can sometimes lead to more serious eye disorders, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and premature cataracts. In a five-year trial on 400 children aged 6 to 12, sci- entists in Singapore examined whether daily doses of atropine, a powerful medication used to treat lazy eye, could help pre- vent myopia from worsening. Read! Read[ Read! Many peo- ple rely on big cups of java to power them through the work day. But a coffee habit may have another benefit, reducing your risk of premature death, reports CBSNEWS.com. In an analy- sis of three long term surveys charting the drinking habits of more than 200,000 men and women, scientists found those who drank moderate amounts of coffee (three to five cups a day) were up to 15% less likely to die from neurological disease, type 2 diabetes, and even sui- cide. The benefits were limited to non-smokers, but were the same for both decaf and regular coffee drinkers. Caffeine also appears to boost mood and reduce the risk of depression. Whatever the explanation, the study adds weight to previous research showing that moderate consumption of coffee can be beneficial to your health. Did you know this? Congress is considering a bill that would revoke or deny passports for U.S. citizens who are "seriously delinquents on taxes of $50,000 or more. Lawmakers have esti- mated that cracking down on delinquent taxpayers in this manner will raise $398 million over 10 years.

Run date: 1/15/16 O O O Italian-American Contribu- tions: Tullio Suzzara Verdi, M.D., attended to Secretary of State Charles Seward the night President Lincoln was fatally shot. Seward was attacked in his home as part of the assas- sination plot that killed Lin- coln. Born in Mantua in 1829, Dr. Verdi studied medicine at Hahnemann College in Philadel- phia and, in 1859, became the first Italian-American medical school graduate. Fighting on the Union side, he was wounded during the Civil War at Matlvern Hill Gee, in 1849, twenty-seven years before Alexander Gra- ham Bell announced that he invented the telephone, Antonio Meucci conceived the idea of the telephone which he called the =teletrofono in his native Flor- ence and emigrated to America the following year. Meucci at- tempted to secure a U.S. patent, but could not afford the patent fees. He died in 1899, never rec- ognized for his invention. Another great Italian-Amer- ican, Vincent R. Ciccone, se- cured over 20 patents beginning in the 1930s for techniques that contributed to the mass production of Penicillin and revolutionized the way medicine is combined with hard candy. His method is widely used in the production of cough drops. From our great musicologist and show biz great A1 Natale: Peter Allen says Dolly Parton reminds me of two big ice cream cones and a whole lot of cotton candy. She has such a sugar-coated image, and I find her repeatedly saccharine in movies. I have nothing against the gal, but I~1 bet most of her fans are either hillbillies or diabetics.
