For the past 18 years, thousands of students at the prestigious University of North Carolina took fake, "paper classes," according to an independent report issued last week. Advisors funneled student athletes into programs to keep them eligible. The report estimates that more than 3,100 students took these classes. Gerald Gurney, President of the Watchdog Drake Group said "...the scope of the 20 year UNC fraud scandal easily takes the prize for the largest and most nefarious scandal in the history of NCAA enforcement. The depth and breadth of the scheme--involving counselors, coaches, academic administrators, faculty and athletic administrators eclipses any previous case".

Myanmar's parliament will consider amending the country's constitution -- which currently bars opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi from becoming president -- ahead of crucial elections next year, an official said Friday. Suu Kyi is trying to change key sections of Myanmar's charter ahead of 2015 polls that are widely expected to be won by her National League for Democracy (NLD), if they are free and fair, after decades of disastrous military rule. The move to moot constitutional reform was discussed during unprecedented talks between President Thein Sein and his political rivals, including Suu Kyi, as well as top army brass and election officials. The NLD has focused on altering a provision in the constitution that ensures the military in the former junta-ruled nation has a veto on any amendment to the charter.
