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.

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.
