Rutgers president Robert L. Barchi announced the decision in a letter to Rutgers United Students Against Sweatshops, which began an anti-Adidas campaign in August.

Julius Lazarus knew what it felt like to be an outcast. He was a Jewish teenager in Austria in the '30s when Adolf Hitler came to power. His oldest brother was one of the first killed at the Nazi concentration camp in Dachau. So when he began a career as a photographer in New York, it was the unpopular causes and struggles that stirred his blood. He snapped images of Communist rallies to save Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who later were executed for selling atomic secrets to the Soviets.

Applications to Rutgers University surged this year, with school officials citing entrance into the Big Ten athletic conference - and the corresponding nationwide exposure - as the major driver for the 11 percent increase in first-year applications. Across the university, Rutgers had 37,459 freshman applications, up from 33,717 in 2014, 33,545 in 2013, and 31,842 in 2012. The increases are spread across the New Brunswick, Newark, and Camden campuses, and mirror a rise officials expect to see in transfer applications by the end of summer.

Is it a critter making a South Jersey comeback or just Internet innuendo making the rounds? It's hard to say, but Pennsauken has posted on its website that the township has had "a handful of reports" that a creature known to some as a "fisher cat" had been sighted in the last few days. "While this animal's natural habitat is much farther north than Pennsauken, the Township is currently looking into this matter to confirm or deny this claim's validity," the website says, adding, "Any issues regarding animal control in Pennsauken Township should be directed to 856-663-3058.

When mating prospects are grim, certain females in Jersey Shore waters appear to have developed a clever strategy: changing sex. That is what Rutgers University scientists think is happening with black sea bass, apparently in response to declining numbers of males. The ability to take a swim on the wild side has been shown previously in lab studies, both in black sea bass and a few other marine species. Now the Rutgers team has shown it happens in the ocean. With the help of Jersey Shore boat captains, the researchers have been tagging, recapturing, and studying hundreds of the fish.

Gov. Christie's administration filed a complaint Friday in federal court in an attempt to stop a seismic testing project the state argues will harm fishing industries and marine life. The action was praised by several environmental groups, which said the testing that began this week in federal waters southeast of Long Beach Island would hurt endangered whales, among other species, and would lead to oil and gas exploration and extraction. Proponents of the project, which is being conducted by Rutgers University with federal funding, say it will help scientists study sea-level rise.

The New Jersey Legislature signed off Thursday on changes to Rutgers University governance that would reduce the size of the school's secondary, largely advisory governing body. With a unanimous vote in both houses of the Legislature, the measure passed and will go to Gov. Christie. Rutgers' governing bodies last week voted to reduce the membership of the board of trustees to 41 from 59. That board is largely honorary; most of the slots will be closed by attrition over a period of about three years.
