A Harvard Law School initiative calls for rewriting labor law “to shift power from corporations to workers.”
Written accounts of Native Americans cultivating the land in New England overstate the importance of agriculture in the pre-contact period, according to a new study. Here, an engraving by Theodor De Bry, after a drawing by Jacques Le Moyne, depicts Timucua Indians at Fort Caroline, a French settlement established in what is now Florida, hoeing and sowing seeds, including beans and maize. The image may be the only contemporaneous visual depiction by Europeans showing the importance of agriculture to Native Americans in the New World.

Before Europeans arrived in New England, local ecology was driven by climate shifts, not by human interventions.

Men's and women's basketball teams eliminated from the Ivy League Tournament
Last year, in the last semifinal game of the Ivy League tournaments, the Harvard and Princeton women’s basketball teams played before a crowd significantly smaller than that for their male counterparts’ games earlier in the day.
