We visit Dickinson’s recent International Climate Symposium, where hundreds of students engaged in meaningful sessions with world-class experts on climate science and policy, including authors from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The event is part of Dickinson’s annual Rose-Walters Prize for Environmental Activism, which honored the IPCC this year.

Plus, President John E. Jones III ’77, P’11, discusses the Dickinson Forward Tour and his message to Dickinsonians near and far.

Puzzler: “A Return to Professor Maher’s Logic Class”

Professor Maher has just given a midterm in his Intermediate Logic class (a student favorite at Dickinson) and is concerned that some of the students in the class cheated on the test. One of the things he knows about his students is that the cheaters lie about everything, while most students tell the truth when asked a direct question. After looking over the exams, he asks Bertrand and Kurt to join him in his office. Sternly looking them over, he demands: “Did either of you cheat on this exam?” Bertrand glanced at Kurt as the pressure built and replied, “At least one of us cheated on the test, but I won’t say more.” Prof. Maher though a moment and replied, “You’ve told me everything.” So, our question for this episode is: Who, if anyone, cheated on the exam?

Listen to the question at the 00:14 mark.
