GW Basketball Has New Digs: Photos of Smith Center Renovations

George Washington University basketball has been all over the news recently.  Media from around the nation flocked to Foggy Bottom when Kye Allums, a junior on the Colonials' women's basketball team, announced he is a transgender male.  And while Allums is making national headlines, GW's renovations to its arena, the Charles E. Smith Center, has created a buzz throughout the greater Foggy Bottom community.

The arena certainly looks different than it did just a few short years ago.  The renovations cost a whopping $43 million, money that went to giving the facility a face-lift, both inside and out.

Parents of Hardy Middle School Students Outraged After Minors Subjected to Graphic Sex Survey

Parents of students at Georgetown's Hardy Middle School knew that the DC Public School system would provide their children with sexual education courses.  They just didn't think said classes would involve such graphic content.

This past Tuesday, during a sex education session ran by Metro TeenAIDS, a DCPS contracted organization, 7th grade Hardy students were administered a survey to determine the extent of their sexual knowledge.

Parents feel as though the survey crossed the line and that the questions were inappropriate.

For example, students, some of whom are just 12 years old, were asked if they knew "the difference between oral, vaginal, and anal sex" or if they could “correctly put a condom on (them self) or (their) partner".

According to parental accounts, one student actually asked what the various sexual acts were, at which point the Metro TeenAIDS facilitator explained what they all meant.
