Rutgers University severed its ties to the sports apparel giant Adidas Group on Monday, responding to student concerns about the company's obligation to workers at a former Indonesian manufacturing plant. The company is no longer licensed to use the Rutgers name or logos, university spokesman E.J. Miranda said. After the campus bookstores' stock of Adidas gear is sold, it will not be reordered. 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.

The firing of Rutgers football coach Kyle Flood has left two of the state's top senior players, Archbishop Wood quarterback Anthony Russo and West Catholic defensive end Tymir Oliver, rethinking their recruitment. Russo, a 6-foot-4, 225-pounder who drew rave reviews with his strong arm and poise while advancing to the Elite 11 finals in Oregon last summer, committed to the Scarlet Knights in May. The 6-4, 265-pound Oliver, powerful and quick off the ball, did the same in August. Oliver reopened his recruitment via Twitter last Friday.

BRUSSELS - The terrorist who decimated a holiday crowd in Nice on Bastille Day was the latest incarnation of the nightmare confronting police in Brussels, Paris, Toulouse, Denmark, Orlando, and elsewhere. How do you prevent a lone wolf from wreaking havoc on a community when the police have no previous indication of his terrorist leanings? A team of security experts from Rutgers University, working with community leaders and police in Molenbeek, Brussels, thinks it has come up with an answer.

BAYVILLE, N.J. - Jon Taylor is a football player, first and foremost. The Salem High School junior certainly looks the part. At 6-foot and a muscular 211 pounds, he stood apart from many of the lithe and lean athletes at the Meet of Champions for track and field on Wednesday night. When the gun sounded for the finals of the 100-meter dash, Taylor separated himself again. "It's not something I expected," Taylor said after winning the race at Central Regional High School in 10.61 seconds.

ISSUE | CAMPAIGN 2016 Let's get civil President Obama gave an inspirational speech Sunday at Rutgers University's commencement, addressing the dangers of ignorance and anti-intellectualism ("Get smart," Monday). This is one of the scary characteristics of many of the followers of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. It's based on anger and xenophobia. This elicits further division and has the potential to encourage violence. We have created terrorism within ourselves as our demographics have changed.

A car door slammed on South Reeds Beach Road, and 300 feeding shorebirds - ruddy turnstones, sandpipers, and red knots - took wing, shrieking out over the Delaware Bay. The commotion caught the attention of Rutgers University biologist Joanna Burger. She rose from the nearby bulkhead where she was monitoring an experiment, and started walking over. All seemed calm on this Middle Township beach in Cape May County. And yet there is growing tension here between economics and ecology, conservationist and oyster farmer.

"In politics and in life, ignorance is not a virtue," Obama told more than 50,000 people in Highpoint Solutions Stadium, home to the school's football program.
