Kiefer Sutherland: Things You Didn't Know

Once you've learned how to spell Kiefer Sutherland's name, you may want to know a few more things about the enigmatic Canadian star.

No 'Affleck for Senate' in 2013. Is Schieffer's Harvard Gaffe to Blame?

Even before President Barack Obama nominated John F. Kerry for Secretary of State, the possibility that Ben Affleck might run for Kerry's vacated Senate seat has served as a conveniently inclusive discussion topic for readers of Politico and People alike.

Eight Things We'll Miss: Technology

Everyone knows that the world might or might not be ending next Friday, December 21st. Flyby's not in the business of making predictions, but just in case the Mayans were right and the last day of exam period also happens to be the end of, well, everything, we're compiling 8 lists of 8 great things (in no particular order) about the world as we know it, one for each day between now and The End. Today's theme is Technology.

On Campus

Glozell, Condiments, and Clothed Screaming

The quick and dirty about what's been going on around the Ancient Eight (and other schools too). Harvard may be (partially) responsible for Facebook, but that doesn't mean that other Ivies can't make their voices heard via various social media, both on- and off-line. This week, several of our peer institutions did just that.

House Life Survey, Take Two (and Q!)

This time it's for real, in all kinds of ways. After a preemptive round of No Subject emails landed in students' inboxes yesterday from the suspiciuos sender "registration@worldapp.com," The Office of Student Life has done its best to put this botched attempt at undergraduate opinion gathering behind it and move on to bigger and/or less sketchy things.

Remembering November 18, 2006

Let us remember that once upon a time, it was Nov. 18, 2006, a day that would go down in history as The Last Day Yale Won The Game.

Goldman to Win The Game, Cornell's Ranking Anxiety, and 'Compliments' All Around

The quick and dirty about what's been going on around the Ancient Eight (and other schools too). Even Jon Stewart has weighed in on what's going down this weekend, and it's not looking good for the Bulldogs. According to the Yale Daily News' Cross Campus blog, when asked by a Yale student which team would win The Game, Stewart said: "I'm pretty sure Goldman Sachs wins that one." That means Harvard, right?

Undecided Voters, Take Note! Dershowitz Opines

For all you undecided voters out there (do you even exist?): the time is now to make up your minds. In the words of a woman who has seen her own political stock plummet in recent weeks, Speak Now or forever hold your peace. (Disregard the fact that T. Swift won't take her own advice, publicly at least.) While we at Flyby would like to kindly suggest that you decide on who you'll support here and now, once and for all, there is not much more information about any of the candidates we give you that they (or The Crimson) haven't already given (see the post below this one). One more thing you might want to take into consideration, however—and we really think this could swing the vote—is Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law Alan M. Dershowitz's recent endorsement.

Flyby's Third (and Final!) Presidential Debate Recap

Last night, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney sat down for a third and final presidential debate before election day. Although the close proximity of the candidates and moderator Bob Schieffer didn't quite produce the verbal fireworks we saw between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan when they were seated in the same format two weeks ago, we did hear quite a lot from both sides of the table (literally). Fortunately, Flyby stayed alert and on BS-patrol. For one last time, we're back to help you sort through some of the evening's more memorable moments.

Harvard's Hova Problem

According to a recent article in Business Insider, Chanequa N. Campbell was clashing with Harvard administrators long before they knew her as one of two former undergrads with possible links to the Kirkland shooting of 2009.

Tyra's #HB(omb)S Reunion

She only went here for nine weeks, and, sure, she doesn't actually have a Harvard "diploma" (in spite of this touching but tragically misleading photo), but these facts are mere technicalities for Tyra Banks, who spent last weekend back in her element, tweeting up an H-Bomb storm from her HBS Owner/President Management Program reunion.

Breaking: The Voice Attributes Latest Post to Specific Writer!

In The Harvard Voice's first individually-attributed blog post since last spring, co-president and co-editor-in-chief of the publication April A. Sperry '13 posted "A Response to the '5 People' Situation" to the Very Noice blog on Monday night, apologizing "to anyone who was offended or in any manner hurt by the comments about Asians in the recruiting process."
