The U.S. Department of Education has exonerated two more UC campuses - Irvine and Santa Cruz - of allegations that they fostered anti-Semitic climates by allowing protests against Israeli policies and other incidents that Jewish students contended amounted to illegal harassment. UC Berkeley announced Tuesday similar findings that ended an investigation by the department's Office for Civil Rights into complaints by Jewish students. Related probes at UC Irvine and UC Santa Cruz also finished with findings that the schools were not at fault, officials said Wednesday.

California high school seniors had a slightly easier time this year in winning a freshman seat somewhere in the University of California system, according to a report released Friday. But it became noticeably more difficult at the most coveted campuses, such as UCLA, UC Berkeley, UC Irvine and UC San Diego, the report stated. The share of California applicants who were offered a space on at least one of UC's nine undergraduate campuses was 61.2%, up from 60.6% last year, the UC statistics showed.

UC Irvine scientists say they have discovered a way to make a surface capable of eliminating glare. It could be a huge relief to anyone blinded by solar panels and by extremely bright electronic displays. The discovery could also make other kinds of electronic devices more easily visible in bright sunlight, such as smartphones, tablets and laptops. Also, soldiers in combat areas may be less likely to have their positions given away to the enemy by reducing the glare coming off their weapons and equipment, UCI scientists said.

A  UC Irvine  fraternity has volunteered to suspend itself after it was blasted for a member-produced video that featured a student in blackface. Lambda Theta Delta announced Wednesday that it would cancel all major events and stop operating as a UCI-sanctioned organization until fall 2014. "This decision is mainly due to the abhorrent, insensitive and highly offensive 'blackface' video created by our members that has been circulated widely on the Internet," members of the Asian fraternity said in a  statement on their Facebook page . Lambda Theta Delta  came under fire  toward the end of April for the video on its YouTube page that showed four of its members lip-syncing to the Justin Timberlake/ Jay-Z  song "Suit and Tie. " The student playing Jay-Z wore blackface in the video.

Students at UC Irvine say they are excited about having President Obama speak at their commencement this year after the news was announced Thursday. “I feel it to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” said Alex Liao, an international studies major who is scheduled to graduate. The president will deliver the address at Irvine's 50th anniversary ceremony in June. Liao had been worried there would be only one large ceremony that would deprive students of the chance to walk across the stage and receive their diplomas, but having Obama and smaller ceremonies was the “optimal solution,” he said.

Cannen Cunningham scored 17 points to lead SMU to a 68-54 victory Wednesday night over UC Irvine in the first round of the NIT and give Hall of Fame Coach Larry Brown his first college postseason victory in 26 years. Ben Moore added 11 points in the Mustangs' first NIT since 2000. Nick Russell chipped in 10. SMU (24-9) used a 23-7 run in the second half to erase a 35-29 deficit, scoring inside and hitting free throws to balloon the lead to 52-42 with 8:16 left. However, less than two minutes later, the refereeing crew determined the Mustangs inadvertently were given a one-and-one opportunity too early, and they removed a point from the hosts to make it 51-44 with 7:24 left.

You might want to ask for a mulligan if this happens. Scientists at UC Irvine announced Wednesday that titanium-coated clubs can cause plants and grass on golf courses to catch on fire. Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi told the Associated Press that the results confirm suspicions investigators have had that titanium clubs caused a fire that burned 25 acres at Irvine's Shady Canyon in 2010 and a much smaller fire a year later at Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club in Mission Viejo that burned close to homes.

The Big West's automatic bid to this year's NCAA tournament must be considered up for grabs if only for the fact the favored team has never been to the NCAA tournament. UC Irvine opens tournament play Thursday at Honda Center without a reliable read of the expectations. The Anteaters (22-10, 13-3) won the Big West regular-season title, but the tournament's three-day format somewhat nullifies all that has been achieved. The top Big West teams don't receive byes, they jump straight into single-elimination frays.

Newspaper veteran Larry Burrough, who was the city editor at the Los Angeles Herald Examiner and then a deputy editor at the Orange County Register where he oversaw a Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative series, died Monday in Yakima, Wash. He was 66. Burrough had surgery in December to remove a cancerous brain tumor and never fully recovered, said his sister, Nancy Yuckert. "He was a huge personality, born for the news business," said Ed Stover, who worked with Burrough at three newspapers in the Pacific Northwest.

An attorney representing a group of Muslim students found guilty of disrupting a speech by the Israeli ambassador said she will appeal the case, which she said tests whether “peaceful, measured student protests” should be a crime. "We are confident that a higher court will overturn the convictions and protect this important right for every individual," said Jacqueline Goodman, who represents some members of a group of students who became known as the “Irvine 11.” Ten of the 11 students were convicted in 2011 of disrupting Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren's speech at UC Irvine on American-Israeli relations.
