When Religion Pollutes

Boston University School of Law Professor Jay D. Wexler presents his talk "When Religion Pollutes" at the 2015 Annual Law, Religion and Health in America Conference Saturday. With case studies of ritualistic mercury use among New York City Santeria practitioners and conservative Amish sects refusing to obey waste treatment regulations, Wexler drew a clear picture of how the law often creates conflict between health and religion in the United States.

Snooze Spots: Where to Sleep on Harvard's Clock

Let’s play word association: Nap! Acceptable answers are only “I want one” or “If only I had the time.” Squeezing those shut-eyed moments of pure bliss into your busy schedule can be difficult. Between all of the procrastinating on Facebook, dawdling at the Kong, and avoiding last night’s hook-up, there is often only a small window to hit the sack and take a nap. You rush out of class, bleary-eyed and bushy- tailed, but you live so far away! Where can you possibly go to responsibly catch some afternoon Zzz’s and wake up in a sweaty panic, wondering what the heck the time is and why it’s so dark out?
