[...] Female-only college and university STEM programs are coming under fire for male discrimination as they attempt to "redress gender imbalance" in fields such as computer science and engineering. HADDONFIELD — Three New Jersey teens who admitted hacking into their school's computer system won't be spending any time alone at the keyboard. Authorities say the boys, ages 14, 15 and 16, used keystroke recording software to get passwords to the network, then logged in and changed the grades of some students.even in moments of tranquility—of which, in his life, there seem to be none—a torqued-up, joyously belligerent, easily baited, and preternaturally exuberant son of New Jersey, so bringing him to a Bruce Springsteen concert is an exercise in volcano management.
In fact, just living in the state of New Jersey can make students eligible for scholarships and grants.
By using your state of residence or college attendance as a search criterion, can help you find the money you need to pay for a college education.
A judge ordered the Haddonfield Memorial High School students to give up unsupervised computer time as part of their probation. The names of the Haddonfield teens have not been released because of their ages.
The boys and their families are fighting paying restitution of $10,503 for the time school officials say employees spent dealing with problems caused by the hacking.
He is, as is well known, a very large man—twice the width of Mitt Romney—but he is a very large man who dances at Springsteen concerts in front of many thousands of people without giving a damn what they think.
We are in a luxury suite at the Prudential Center—the Rock—in downtown Newark, the sort of suite accessible only to the American plutocracy, from which Springsteen seems to draw a surprisingly large proportion of his most devoted fans. I’ve spent much of my life as a pro-Springsteen extremist (defined here as someone who has spent an unconscionable amount of money on Springsteen tickets and also refuses to contemplate the notion that Bob Dylan might be the better writer), and I have met very few people who love Springsteen the way Christie loves Springsteen.
“No, we got nothing back from them,” he said unhappily, “not even a ‘Fuck you.’” Though he doesn’t like the cold shoulder, Christie takes comfort in something that, I imagine, leaves his idol unhappy and confused: the people who grew up with Springsteen in Freehold, the people who first came to listen to Springsteen, the people whose lives Springsteen explores in his songs—they voted for Christie.
Sixty-three percent of white voters with only high-school diplomas went for Christie in his 2009 race against the incumbent Democrat, Jon Corzine. He is, after all, a Republican, and Bruce Springsteen is known as an enemy of Republicans.
Behind us, Christie’s communications director, Maria Comella, whose job it is to contain him, watches with alarm as the governor grabs his community-affairs commissioner, Rich Constable, and his human-services commissioner, Jennifer Velez, and simultaneously bear-hugs and headlocks them. But what is strange about this statement is that it is an inversion of a central, dispiriting truth of Christie’s life: Bruce Springsteen is beyond his reach.
Christie turns from one to the other—his face is maybe three inches from theirs—as he shouts along with Springsteen: “Workin’ in the fields / Till you get your back burned / Workin’ ’neath the wheel / Till you get your facts learned / Baby, I got my facts / Learned real good right now.” He screams the song’s immortal lines: “Poor man wanna be rich / Rich man wanna be king / And a king ain’t satisfied till he rules everything / I wanna go out tonight / I wanna find out what I got.” He is flushed and beaming. ” he screams over the noise of the crowd, and then screams it again, to make sure I understand: “No one is beyond the reach of Bruce! Despite heroic efforts by Christie, Springsteen, who is still a New Jersey resident, will not talk to him.
