New FAA rules

Brian Huff, an associate professor of engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington, was featured in a Fort Worth Star-Telegram story about the FAA’s recent efforts to clarify its rules for flying model aircraft. “To me the criteria should be if it is being operated in a safe and appropriate manner rather than if it is being used for sport and recreation,” Huff said. The story also appeared in other McClatchy newspapers such as the Modesto Bee

Oliver Bateman, assistant professor of history at UT Arlington, was a guest on WBAL/1090 AM (Maryland) for a story about grade inflation at U.S. universities and colleges. He said it begins at the elementary school level and “the students have come to expect good marks, good scores as a way of confirming they’re average.”
