    (CNN)In the past three seasons, Portuguese giant Benfica has generated more than $200 million from the sale of just two players that came through the club's academy: João Félix and Rúben Dias.Over the years, the club's academy -- known as the Benfica Campus -- has nurtured numerous stars that have gone on to command high transfer fees from Europe's biggest clubs; Ederson, Renato Sanches, Gonçalo Guedes, Félix and Dias to name just a few.Rodrigo Magalhães is the technical coordinator for the Campus and has been working in youth development at the club since 2005. He tells CNN Sport that Benfica's focus on developing its youth stars as human beings before footballers is key to its success.Around 95 players live at the academy at any one time, and when they transition from the under-18s to the under-19s, players move out into their own houses or apartments in the city."In our opinion, it was the age that they start to have their own lives," Magalhães says to CNN. "Some of them have girlfriends, some of them live two or three in an...
    ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (CBS) – A series of one-act plays being performed at Stockton University’s Atlantic City campus is highlighting the memoirs of three South Jersey women who survived the Holocaust. The series, titled “The Manya Project: Three One-Women Holocaust Survivor Plays,” is being produced through a partnership between Stockton University’s Sara and Sam Schoffer Holocaust Resource Center and Rowan University’s Department of Theatre and Dance. READ MORE: Philadelphia Police Officer Creates Portrait Of James Lambert, Man Killed In Attack With Traffic ConeThe first play, performed last Thursday, is based on the memoirs of Elizabeth Roth, 96, of Vineland. Roth and members of her family attended the performance. “It’s impossible to imagine something like that, what happened in Auschwitz,” Roth said. “The people didn’t want to hear about it. Even my fellow Jewish people where I lived in Philadelphia, neighbors, they weren’t interested in it.” Roth was born in 1926 in what was known then as Czechoslovakia. In 1939, her family began hearing about the Nazis invading Poland. “We heard that in Poland what they do to the Jewish...
    Mario Tama/Getty Cal State Los Angeles graduate Maricris Trask, who is a mother and U.S. Navy veteran, hugs another graduate following their commencement ceremony which was held outdoors beneath a tent on campus on July 27, 2021 in Los Angeles, California. This Veterans Day, Americans will honor the heroism and sacrifice of the nearly 22 million men and women who have served in the U.S. military. Among them will be student veterans. Since 2009, nearly one million veterans have benefited from the Post-9/11 GI Bill, which has allowed them to pay for educational expenses such as tuition, textbooks and housing. There is no doubt this federal policy does exactly what it was designed to do – facilitate access to higher education and provide training benefits. This bill offers substantial financial assistance, but as my research shows, an important benefit is missing: What the Post-9/11 GI Bill does not prepare veterans for is the emotional and psychological stress linked to transitioning from military to student life.

                      by Zachary Marschall, PhD  Freedom in Australia is now at the mercy of a state and its police apparatus bent on controlling people’s every movement. But despite the extensive footage of protests gone violent, neither American liberal media nor domestic social justice movements are raising alarms about police brutality in that country. On Monday – 18 days after imposing a vaccine mandate on small businesses –  President Biden said that 98 percent of Americans needed to be vaccinated in order for the country to have hope for normalcy.  Biden is exempting illegal immigrants from the same requirement because those Haitian migrants in Del Rio are “not intending to stay here for a lengthy period of time,” as Press Secretary Jen Psaki explained one week prior. Hot-take pundits harp on these double-standards, but claims of political bias and bureaucratic mismanagement only scratch the surface of the problem. The problem is that those currently with the power to restrict lives and constrict behavior think themselves ordained to do so. By virtue of their woke enlightenment, they know better and do better....
    Hong Kong (CNN)Students and lecturers at Hong Kong's most prestigious university returned from summer break this month to a very different institution.The Democracy Wall at the University of Hong Kong (better known as HKU) -- a pinboard where students once shared political thoughts -- is gone. The student union, which once advocated for students, is all but defunct, with four of its members facing charges of advocating terrorism. Although many students and academics were happy to be back on campus -- many for the first time since the start of the pandemic -- a political chill hangs over the university that some staff say is influencing how they teach. While the Hong Kong government told CNN the city's universities "continue to enjoy academic freedom," four current HKU staff who spoke with CNN on condition of anonymity said they are more cautious about what they say in class, afraid that their own students could report them to authorities. The self-censorship began after June last year when Beijing imposed a controversial and sweeping national security law on the city. Since then, more...
    "The scholar pilgrims who were turned away today while seeking safe passage to a better future need the help of the U.S. government who gave them the hope they must not lose," Bickford added. While being instructed to return home, the defeated group received even worse news: their names had been shared with the Taliban by the U.S. government. "They told us: we have given your names to the Taliban," recounted Hosay, a 24-year-old sophomore who was aboard the bus on Sunday. "We are all terrified, there is no evacuation, there is no getting out." "Our hopes and dreams have turned into dust," several other students reportedly said.What else?Critics blasted the Biden administration last week amid reports that U.S. officials had carelessly supplied the Taliban with a list of names of U.S. citizens, green card holders, and Afghan allies in an effort to expedite their entry into the Kabul airport. "Basically, they just put all those Afghans on a kill list," one defense official told Politico. "It's just appalling and shocking and makes you feel unclean." The Biden administration appeared...

The new $99.99 Quantum-sized Pym-ini Sandwich coming to the Pym Test Kitchen when Avengers Campus debuts June 4 at Disney California Adventure ranks among the world’s most expensive sandwiches.

    Georgina DiNardo’s first virtual class is at 9:45. It’s Introduction To Communications — she’s a TA, so she’s responsible for sharing her computer screen with the class to display articles and other visual aids. At 11, she has a short break — she walks around the room to stretch her legs. By 11:20, she’s back on Zoom for a macroeconomics class (as a student, this time). For the rest of the afternoon, she edits and writes for The Eagle, American University’s newspaper, communicating with her colleagues in a pile of Slack channels. Then, homework. DiNardo, a sophomore at American, and her roommate have to negotiate space (they both have Zoom classes every day). One takes their shared bedroom, and one takes the dining room table. DiNardo prefers the former — it’s easier to focus in a small private space — but, “We kind of rotate on how we’re feeling.” Whichever room DiNardo ends up in, she’s there the entire day. Due to evolving health conditions and government requirements, AU will offer fall semester undergraduate and graduate courses online with...
    Students who are academically struggling will be able to receive one-on-one in-person tutoring in the Los Angeles Unified School District under an agreement between the teachers union and district. Until the deal, which the union announced late Thursday, leaders of the teachers union had discouraged voluntary teacher participation in such tutoring until it signed off on safety protocols and other operating rules for the effort — reflecting the statewide concerns among teachers about returning to work amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Families interested in the tutoring should speak to their child’s teacher or the school administration. The district did not provide information on Friday about how many students may be able to benefit from the tutoring. Supt. Austin Beutner said last week that the effort was being organized locally in each of the district’s 42 administrative units. The school year started Aug. 18. Teachers who participate will be compensated at their hourly rate for sessions that last 50 minutes, with 10 minutes reserved for sanitation between meetings, according to a bulletin that United Teachers Los Angeles sent to members. The tutoring...

    A Cornell student at College Town Bagels in Ithaca, New York. Daniel Ra Cornell University started its fall semester on September 2, and Daniel Ra grabbed his camera to document the day. He spent a few hours wandering around campus and snapping photographs of the nearly deserted campus. He said most students are taking the precautions seriously by wearing masks and social distancing. "No one wants to get sick," Ra told Insider. "No one wants to go back home after spending so much money." Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Daniel Ra stepped onto Cornell University's campus to start his fall semester, but it didn't feel like the traditional start to the year. The graduate student compared it to finals week. "It feels like you're the last person to leave for winter break," Ra told Insider. "You're on campus and everyone is leaving or gone." Ra, a staff photographer at the university's campus newspaper, wanted to capture the emotions and atmosphere surrounding the first day of the fall semester in Ithaca, New York. 
    SANTA CLARA, Calif. (KGO) -- It doesn't matter that Danielle Morgan is an Ivy League educated a professor at Santa Clara University or that her brother is a classically trained musician who has performed at Carnegie Hall.What does matter is that they were racially profiled, questioned and harassed by campus security who wanted proof Danielle lived in her home.EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: Woman says she was racially profiled, attacked by SF Safeway security guardEMBED More News Videos The woman says she was humiliated when a security guard assumed she was shoplifting at the Diamond Heights Safeway and turned aggressive.

I went back inside to get my ID and get my husband. Probably...
    LUCERNE VALLEY (CBSLA) — An elementary school in San Bernardino has reopened for in-person instruction, one of the first in the state to reopen to students. Lucerne Valley Elementary School reopened Thursday with a hybrid model after getting a waiver to resume classes. (credit: CBS) Parents had the option to keep their kids at home full-time for distance learning, or attend in-person classes twice a week. The in-person days are also split up, to limit the number of students on campus. Having the option was a relief to parent Anita Mooyman. “I think physically and mentally, it’s good for them to be back on campus, even if it’s just two days a week,” she said. In one class, a teacher was seen wearing a clear face shield, while teaching children spaced out on a rug. Plastic dividers are placed on every other desk behind them. Lucerne Valley’s COVID-19 rate is below the state’s recommended threshold at about 56.8 per 100,000, but the county’s overall case rate is about three times higher.
    PHOTO VIA UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA/FACEBOOKReturning to campus is the next frontier in Florida’s reopening process, and several state universities are about to put their plans to the test. As thousands of students move into their dorms this month, at least two state universities reported dozens of COVID-19 cases on campus before classes are set to begin Monday.  The situation at some Florida universities has mimicked events in other parts of the country, where several colleges experienced an uptick in infections days after students returned to campus this month. “I would not be at all surprised if we had to shut down,” Florida State University professor Matthew Lata, who plans to return to in-person instruction next week, told The News Service of Florida on Thursday. “More and more universities, as they try to reopen, are experiencing a high risk of infection. So, I would not be surprised if we had to shut down.” University leaders in Florida, one of the states hardest hit by the pandemic, have spent the summer deliberating how to reopen campuses in the fall.  As the start...
