Facing the fiscal cliff
Roger Meiners, UT Arlington’s John and Judy Goolsby Distinguished Professor of Economics and Law, was featured in a segment on KDFW/FOX 4’s
Sunday morning news program, discussing the so-called fiscal cliff.
Meiners said it’s likely that President Obama and legislators won’t be
able to reach an agreement until 2013. He said: “I think we'll in fact
go into January without a change, let the screaming and yelling get even
bigger and that is more likely then to generate a compromise at the
other end. But, in any event, higher taxes are coming.”
Twisting tiny particles
Recently published research by UT Arlington physics assistant professor Samarendra Mohanty was featured in the Laser Focus World Weekly Newscast
online. Mohanty and his research team have created a fiber-optic tool
that can precisely twist and turn the tiniest of particles, giving
scientists the ability to manipulate single cells for cancer research
and twist and untwist individual strands of DNA, for instance.
