The professor posted a copy of the father’s complaint onto his university website and encouraged his students to discuss the issue, which further escalated the situation.The college informed Peterson, 61, last week that he would not be needed for classes next semester. Peterson immediately tendered his resignation and says he intends to sue the university for infringing on his free speech rights.When contacted by the Tribute Herald, the school’s vice chancellor for academic affairs said he couldn’t discuss the issue or comment on personnel action.Do you watch your language in the workplace?

Elswick Hoppers are a brand of bicycles I like. I already have a 1938 Gents Hopper in my collection, so I jumped on this 1950 Model W Trade Bike when I found it. The wonderful thing about it is the faded original paint and all its badges and decals still there 58 years after it left the factory.
Over a decade later, running deep inside the southernmost continent remains an exclusive experience. Around 40,000 tourists visit each year, but the vast majority remain on cruise ships that skirt the coast. Few make it to the interior and just over 50 will run the marathon.
