UC Santa Cruz officials said a federal report on campus sexual harassment is filled with errors and omissions. University officials responded in a 22-page letter to the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights report that charged that UC Santa Cruz did little to assist female students who complained of harassment, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. "We simply didn't have our day in court," UC Santa Cruz Chancellor Karl Pister said.

Two firebomb attacks last week on UC Santa Cruz scientists who conduct animal research have angered and worried academics throughout the UC system, who said their work has broad public support and that they will not be intimidated by bombers who crossed the line by targeting families. "It is outrageous when people's families are targeted," said UCLA Chancellor Gene Block. "This is incredibly serious because it could have led to loss of life. It's chilling."

The FBI is investigating possible links between animal-rights activists in Southern California and a weekend incident at the home of a UC Santa Cruz researcher. Patti Hanson, an FBI spokeswoman, said the bureau was examining possible connections to "domestic terrorism." A demonstration by six masked protesters in front of the home Sunday afternoon turned violent when the group pounded on the door and was confronted by the researcher's husband, police said. The husband was hit on the hand by an unknown object and fought back, throwing a punch or two, according to police.

He's the proud new owner of a two-bedroom condo -- at a cost of $208,500. Moini is among the first to buy one of 50 condos on campus. The school put what had been rental units up for sale to give campus employees a chance to become homeowners after years of waiting.
