This is how HuffPo's "morning top headlines roundup" crew characterized last night:
"MILO YIANNOPOULOS SPEECH CANCELED AT BERKELEY AFTER VIOLENT PROTESTS Over 1,500 people had started fires, taken down light poles and thrown items at officers before the event, forcing the school to cancel the speech by the right-wing provocateur. Trump then tweeted that the school’s failure to allow “free speech” could mean no federal funds. [HuffPost]"
-But 1500 -one thousand five hundred-assembled peacefully, --about 125 didn't ...around 125 -one hundred twenty five people did NOT do that...
Seems important to note.
In a similar vein, there seems to be some highlighting of the importance of student newspapers, student press:
Trump Supreme Court Nominee's College Newspaper: Don't Use College Writings Against Public Figures | The Huffington Post
Also some think now is the time to remember:
Those items could become important: in light of :this other "DC higher education task force reform" news yesterday...
Seems an important time to pay attention to important things and cover them or read them accurately...

It was a busy news night but did Chris Newfield become UCSD faculty? nope don't think so, still Gaucho/SB -but see this coverage on :
"The learning is the other way around — you raise tuition, we cut funds,” said Newfield. “University leaders misinterpreted these cuts — administrators didn’t see that they caused part of the cuts.”
Additionally, Newfield advocated for a return to free tuition for all in-state students. Total undergraduate tuition would cost the state 300 million dollars a year — less than 10 percent of total tuition revenue, according to Newfield.
According to Christ, this argument is “false and dangerous” because the burden of tuition has been passed down from government to families, resulting in greater inequality. Christ argued that free tuition is an unrealistic goal to strive for within the current California tax structure and that the conversation should instead revolve around the proportion of those who can and cannot pay tuition.
“The argument for free college is dangerous argument because it implies that there isn’t a cost for college,” said Christ. “The question for us is not how make college appear to be free, but to share the costs equitably.”
UC Berkeley anthropology student Rozie Beverly, whose thesis is called “What is Education,” came to the event in order to meet Professor Newfield and take part in an open dialogue between high-level administrators and students.
“I feel more empowered now that I’ve met Chris Newfield — gives us hope,” said Beverly."
