O μυθιστοριογράφος και στενός φίλος του Ντέιβιντ Μπόουι, Γουίλιαμ Μπόιντ, αφηγείται ένα περιστατικό από μία συνάντησή τους στη Νέα Υόρκη, στα μέσα της πρώτης δεκαετίας του 2000...
Σύμφωνα με πηγές που επικαλείται η Καθημερινή, η παραίτηση του κ. Γραμμένου, καθηγητή στο City University του Λονδίνου και εγνωσμένου κύρους πανεπιστημιακού, έγινε δεκτή από τον υπουργό Παιδείας.

Αντιθέτως, όπως σημειώνει η εφημερίδα, οι ξένοι αξιολογητές του Διεθνούς Πανεπιστημίου επισημαίνουν στις κρίσεις τους την «εντυπωσιακή ποιότητα» του ερευνητικού έργου που παράγεται στο ίδρυμα, η οποία είναι «σαφώς αντίστοιχη» με ξένα πρότυπα.
