Policy: From the Headlines

The "current events" that make headlines inevitably deal with issues that have more complexity than a single headline or blog post can cover. Test your knowledge of current events, particularly some of the important details that often go unnoticed.



Information Security


Information is like a commodity: it is a valuable resource that can be owned and controlled.

Often we treat information as if it has no particular value, such as where we were at noon yesterday. But that information can be used by advertisers to target consumers, investigators to track criminal activity, or epidemiologists to track a disease outbreak.

What is Border Security?


Homeland Security works with other federal agencies to protect borders from a variety of threats.

What is Harrassment?


Compliments on appearance may feel welcome from intimates, but unprofessional at work or school.
The EEOC defines sexual harassment as a form of sex discrimination.
