• The National Academic Quiz Tournaments has stripped Harvard University of three national Quiz Bowl championships. Officials say a Harvard competitor improperly accessed information on questions that would be asked in 2009, 2010 and 2011. That student has denied any wrongdoing.
• Christian groups have complained after discovering that training material for an Army Reserve unit in Pennsylvania referred to Catholics and evangelical Christians as examples of “religious extremism” along with al-Qaida, Hamas and the Ku Klux Klan, which was referred to as a Christian organization. An Army spokesman says the material was used as part of an Equal Employment Opportunity briefing and was not produced by the Army or under the direction of any Army officials and has since been removed.
