A UT Arlington College of Nursing assistant professor is at an international conference in Boston this week presenting information from a new study that compares online students' stress levels and sense of belonging to their on campus counterparts, according to the websites Science Newsline, Science Daily and News Medical. Ronda Mintz-Binder surveyed about 60 online and on campus master’s students and will check back with them a year later to find out how they fared.

UT Arlington Vice President for Research Carolyn Cason has been appointed to the Advisory Board of The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Manufacturing Extension Partnership, a program of the U.S. Department of Commerce, according to the Dallas Business Journal’s People on the Move section. The MEP works to increase the competitiveness of American manufacturers.

UT Arlington has hired Paul Componation to chair the Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Department, the Dallas Business Journal’s People on the Move page said. Most of Componation’s current work has been in improving launch system development for NASA.

Kate Holliday, associate professor and director of UT Arlington’s David Dillon Center for Texas Architecture, was quoted in a Ryerson Review of Journalism story on the changing face of newspaper buildings. She said that in the past if you wanted to keep up with the latest news on events like elections “you hung around outside the newspaper buildings.”

An item on the KERA Art & Seek webpage lauded Jesse Morgan Barnett and Michael Mazurek, two friends and former students in the UT Arlington art program who invented the Dallas Biennial two years ago. This year, they presented DB 14, a wild concept showing 50 artists in twelve exhibitions during four months in Dallas

A Fort Worth Star-Telegram blog post that mentioned tests that UT Arlington scientists are doing on private water wells in Parker County also appeared on the FindLaw and Dallas Business Journal websites. The story focused on increased levels of a methane in private water wells and a Texas Railroad Commission report about it.
