Enrollment in Public Health
207x, the online adaptation of
a Harvard University School
of Public Health class in epide-
miology and biostatistics, sur-
passed 30,000 students when it
went live Monday, The Harvard
Crimson reported Tuesday.
"This is the biggest course in
public health ever offered in the
world," E. Francis Cook, one of
the Public Health 207x profes-
sors, told the Crimson.
The class is one of seven free
online courses offered by Har-
vard University, the Massachu-
setts Institute of Technology,
the University of Texas and the
University of California, Berke-
ley as part of edX - a virtual

STUDENT DATA WITHOUT
POLICY
The information of students
at Princeton University is being
recorded without rules or regu-
lations by university databases
each time an individual uses
his or her student ID card, The
Daily Princetonian reported
Thursday.
Beginning next year, stu-

dents' dorm room information
will be streamed in real time
over a secure campus Wi-Fi net-
work, according to the Princeto-
nian.
Princeton spokesman Martin
Mbugua told the Princetonian
there is currently no explicit
policy regarding the use of data
recorded from students' IDs,
adding there is no stated policy
for the length of time the data
will be kept.
Data gathered from the cards
of students presently dates as
far back as June 2010, the last
time a new system was installed,
according to the Princetonian.

next to me singing along to every
song, loudly. A few songs were
truly guided by the DJ's fingers,
the crowd breaking out into
dancing at times - yes, people
actually danced to the xx! At
times the floor of the Congress,
a lovely but decrepit building,
would shudder with every beat.
The show's pre-encore ending
involved lingering ambient noise

as the band walked off the stage,
making room for the giant three
dimensional "X" that was slowly
revealed against the stage wall.
Glowing smoke leisurely filled
the oversized letter, and then
of course the group reappeared
after letting the X have its time
in the limelight. Later, the "X"
art morphed into floating stars,
finishing as shifting rainbow
blobs.
At some point, Sim offered
some deep-voiced mumbles of
gratitude, an audience member
turning to me and asked, "Do
you have any idea what he just
said?"
No, and I didn't really
understand much of anything
that was sang either. But
staring at the beaming cosmic
"X" and rippling lights against
the archaically beautiful dome
ceiling, I realized, damn,
the xx knows how to create a
mood.
