College News Round-Up: Plans and Completions

The new Butler's construction has been completed and the University has opened up the College's doors to media members. The Chronicle of Higher Education reviews the new buildings along with some excellent pictures.

The New York Times' language blog considers the phrase "Princeton Plan," a plan aimed at equitably determining international carbon caps based off of an article by six scientists, four of whom are based at the Princeton Environmental Institute.

Outside the bubble:

Yale University Press decides not to include images of Muhammad, including the Danish cartoon that set off protests in 2006, in Jytte Klausen's new book The Cartoons That Shook the World.

Harvard licenses new trademark "Harvard Yard" to a clothing manufacturer for a line of expensive, preppy clothing. The profits will fund undergraduate financial aid.
