Drone use examined
Recent research by UT Arlington communication professors Mark
Tremayne and Andrew Clark on the use of drones or unmanned aerial
vehicles for journalism and by private citizens was featured on the
website Electronic Products.
Tremayne and Clark looked at the ethical and legal implications of the
new technology. Their paper was published in the journal Digital
UT Arlington professor emeritus of biology Robert McMahon was quoted in a Dallas Morning News
story about the discovery of a juvenile zebra mussel clinging to a
settlement sampler 10 feet below the surface of Lewisville Lake. Zebra
mussels, which are native to Eastern Europe and Russia, breed
prolifically, with the female releasing “a couple of hundred thousand
eggs in a breeding season,” McMahon said.
Green efforts noted
The National Wildlife Federation's Wildlife Promise blog
featured a story on the effects of climate change that mentioned UT
Arlington's Environmental and Regulatory Management System. The system
is a “methodical approach to minimize adverse environmental impacts,
maintain regulatory compliance, promote sustainability and encourage
safe work practices,” according to the story. It is included in NWF
Campus Ecology Program’s Campus Sustainability Case Study Database.
Jose Angel Gutierrez, a UT Arlington political science professor,
presented an audience of more than 100 at Del Mar College with a road
map to being leaders of social change, as well as examples of how much
further the Latino community has to go, the Corpus Christi Caller-Times reported. The
Crystal City native lived through the heyday of the Chicano Movement of
the 1960s and ’70s as a founding member of La Raza Unida Party, which
ran its own candidates for political office. For Latinos to gain power,
movements must be focused on the people and build a capacity for
individuals and groups to grow, he said.
