Harvard, Yale under federal investigation for shady foreign gifts

The Department of Education has opened an investigation into the millions of dollars in foreign funding going to Harvard and Yale Universities.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Department of Education is continuing a review that American colleges did not disclose $6.5 billion in foreign funding, including monies from China and Saudi Arabia.  

In a letter to Harvard, the Department of Education asked the Ivy League institution to disclose all information regarding gifts and connections to China, Iran, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia. The Department of Education also asked Harvard to disclose any connections it may have to Huawei and ZTE, two Chinese telecommunications companies, and Kaspersky Labs, the Russian cybersecurity firm.

The Wall Street Journal previously reported that Huawei has been accessing mobile phone networks around the world through “back door” methods traditionally used by law enforcement.

Biology Deniers Removed Lesbians From Australian Pride

A lesbian event has been removed from Sydney, Australia’s LGBT Pride after a vocal minority protested the participation of a popular lesbian YouTuber with critical views towards transgender self-ID.

Arielle Scarcella runs an LGBT-centred YouTube channel with over 630,000 subscribers.

She has also spoken out against self-ID laws which have enabled biological males to be transferred to women’s prisons after the commission of serious offences, such as sexual assaults. In 2018, Scarcella collaborated on a video with Blaire White discussing how lesbian sexual preferences that do not include an attraction to biological males who transition to female were not “transphobic.”

Les-Talk was originally planned to be one of the events featured at Sydney Mardi Gras, the local Pride parade and festival. A panel-style discussion also featuring Tania Safi of Buzzfeed, the event began to draw ire from trans rights activists for including Scarcella. A petition was launched on February 15 demanding Scarcella be removed and replaced “preferably by someone of intersectionality.”
