Economist talks about fiscal cliff
The U.S. economy could fall into recession in early 2013 if Congress
fails to stop a looming fiscal cliff made up of automatic spending cuts
and tax hikes, Housingwire
reported in a story that featured UT Arlington professor Roger Meiners,
chair of the University’s economics department. Meiners said: "Markets
have already taken into account the fiscal cliff and a lot of their
concerns are already reflected in stock and equity prices, as well as
decisions that businesses are making today."
News director profiled
Morning shows on Spanish-language stations Univision23/Telefutura 49
recently featured an interview with Julian Rodriguez, Department of
Communication lecturer, and a story about his work at the University.
Rodriguez, news director at UTA News en Español, also is vice president
of the Texas Association of Broadcast Educators.
Putting it all together
UT Arlington film professor Bart Weiss was featured in a Dallas Morning News
story about the upcoming Dallas Video Fest. Weiss, co-founder of the
event, talked about calling on other film experts to help put together
the 24th annual festival. Weiss also was featured in a KERA/90.1 FM Arts and Seek story about the festival.
Steering clear of snakes
UT Arlington professor Jon Campbell, chairman of the biology department, was quoted in a KXAS/NBC 5
story about a 2-year-old who was bitten by a Copperhead snake on a
playground in Richardson Tuesday. "Copperheads especially like to hide
in brush piles and other piles of debris -- any place they can get up
underneath and hide by day,” Campbell said.
