Vegetarian Buddhist Cuisine
Anyone hoping to understand the range of Sichuan cooking should plan to dine at a Buddhist monastery restaurant. In these establishments, monks prepare elaborate vegetarian fare, much of it designed to mimic Sichuan classics like twice-fried pork. The Baoguang Temple in Xindu serves a meatless lunch of artful dishes that fool the eye and offer more proof of the Sichuan penchant for healthful eating.

Adverse Effects of US Jail and Prison Policies on the Health and Well-Being of Women of Color
In the past few decades, US policies have led to an unprecedented increase in the number of people behind bars.

Crime, Heredity and Insanity in American History
This course will give students an opportunity to learn more about the ways in which Americans have thought about crime and insanity and how their ideas have changed over time. The 19th century witnessed a transformation in the understanding of the origins of criminal behavior in the United States. For many, a religious emphasis on humankind as sinful gave way to a belief in its inherent goodness. But if humans were naturally good, how could their evil actions be explained? Drawing on studies don
Global Interdependence: Are the U.S and Other Markets 'Sowing the Seeds' for the Next Crisis?
Despite renewed GDP growth and other positive signs, the U.S. isn't out of the woods, says Wharton finance professor Franklin Allen. In fact, the country could be heading into a "double dip" scenario that tips it back into a recession. That depends on how a number of factors play out in the coming months -- or even years -- not only in the U.S., but also around the world. Global interest rate policies, property markets and public deficits will all demand attention, Allen notes in a recent interv
