Wake In The News Synopsis

Lina Benabdallah, professor of politics and international studies at Wake Forest University, spoke with PRI’s “The World” about China’s increasing influence in Africa. China has provided aid, investment and political training for Africa’s ruling elite, which has left some wondering about China’s expectations in return. “Africa is, in a way, a low-stakes place for China’s experiments in foreign policy. It is a place where Chinese foreign policy can try things for the first time and see how they play out,” said Benabdallah.

Tony Award-winning artist Renée Elise Goldsberry, perhaps best known for her role as Angelica Schuyler in the Broadway smash, “Hamilton,” spoke with WFDD she kicking off “The Arts of Leading” conference at Wake Forest. The weekend-long event is an effort to highlight the importance of the liberal arts in leading others, instead of the fields that typically showcase leadership, like politics or the military. “I believe that artists are hugely influential in forming conversations and reflecting attitudes and shaping them, and awareness of that is so important, so that artists are more responsible with what they do,” Goldsberry said.

Sophisticated cheating on college admissions tests, brought to light by the Varsity Blues investigation, has led some to reevaluate whether colleges and universities should require applicants to take the SAT and ACT college admissions exams. In 2008, Wake Forest University announced it would go test-optional the next year, making it the first top-30 national university to do so, and it says it is “very glad” it made the move. “For the record, it’s not that we think standardized tests are evil. We just think that the measure of your intelligence and potential requires a deeper dive. It’s about life experience, aspiration, work ethic, engagement and all of what makes you who you are.”

Catherine Harnois, professor of sociology at Wake Forest University, highlighted some workplace issues that are specific to women, which can intensify their levels of mental strain at work. “In addition to working in jobs that have low autonomy and may have lower status, prestige or earnings, women are more likely to experience sexual harassment and gender discrimination at work, and are more likely than men to be saddled with familial responsibilities [such as childcare and eldercare] when they get home,” she said. “All of these factors and more can take a toll on health.”

Making the full Mueller report available to Congress, let alone to the public, might be an uphill battle, experts say —so far, Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein might be the only officials outside of the special counsel’s team who have seen the report itself. “The DOJ regulations really do leave it up to Barr to decide,” Katy Harriger, a professor at Wake Forest University and the author of The Special Prosecutor in American Politics, wrote. “The only constraints on that are public pressure, which, if loud and consistent enough, is likely to make him release more, rather than less, of the report.”

New research shows a high-protein, low-calorie diet is both a safe and effective way for those over 65 to lose weight. “Data from this study suggest that practitioners working with older adults with obesity can recommend a hypocaloric, nutritionally complete, higher-protein meal plan and anticipate that their patients will experience significant weight loss, accompanied by a favorable shift in body composition, preservation of physical function, and improvement in several biomarkers of mortality,” said Kristen M. Beavers, PhD, assistant professor of health and exercise science at Wake Forest.

The crash of two new Boeing 737 Max jets within five months of each other has forced the company, Congress and regulators to examine both Boeing’s technology and its practices. Some experts say the company’s scramble to build the larger 727 Max airplane signals the need for a new approach to regulation. “In many instances, AI can fly an airplane safer or drive a car safer than you or I,” says Sid Shapiro, an expert on regulatory policy at Wake Forest University’s law school. “So there’s certainly a promise there of increased safety. On the other hand, you’ve got to get it right for that to happen. And it’s not clear that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or, for that matter, the FAA is really up to this job and it has the sophistication to do it.”

American advocacy groups and police have a shared concern over the fallout from allegations that an openly gay black TV actor faked a hate-motivated assault: that future victims will face more skepticism even as hate crimes are on the rise. “If true, then this is a disgraceful exploitation of many past victims of real hate crimes, many of whom have endured heinous suffering,” said Kami Chavis, who is an expert on hate crimes laws and director of the Criminal Justice Program at Wake Forest University’s law school. But, she says hate crime victims have already faced big obstacles. “There is a long history of these victims not being believed.”

Some lawmakers in North Carolina, Oregon, Montana and other states are moving to control costs of state employee health plans. Their strategy: Use Medicare reimbursement rates to recalibrate how they pay hospitals. “Even if Medicare pays a bit below cost, 177 percent of Medicare should be at least 50 percent above cost,” says Mark Hall, director of the health law and policy program at Wake Forest University. “Is that a reasonable margin? I guess that’s up for debate, but to most people a 50 percent margin might sound reasonable.”

A new book by Wake Forest art professor John J. Curley sheds light on the role that images played in the Cold War. An excerpt from Curley’s book, Global Art and the Cold War says art produced during the Cold War was greatly influenced by and is inextricable from culture and politics. “The Cold War pitted two so-called ‘master narratives’ against each other. Both are products of Western modernization, and both rely on utopian notions: The former promises individual choice and the possibility that anybody can become wealthy, and the latter claims as its goals—equality, meaningful labor, and collective life without greed.”

Strumpf said betting markets do a better job of predicting actual votes than do polls, which tend to favor name recognition in the early stages of campaigns. A major advantage prediction markets have over polls is that they can take into account factors such as a candidate’s potential, as opposed to just performance.

Military images have been used to sell guns for a century. One researcher, David Yamane, said they examined a century of issues of the NRA’s magazine, now known as “American Rifleman,” and found that militaristic images and text went back as far as the publication itself. The frequency has typically risen during times of war, with the most recent peak occurring during the current “global war on terror,” characterized by rifle-wielding special operations units, said Yamane, a sociology professor at Wake Forest University.

Nationwide, hospitals have long complained that Medicare underpays them, and some hospital and business groups have warned employers that tying payments from state workers’ plans more closely to Medicare could result in higher charges to private-sector businesses. But policy experts are skeptical. “Even if Medicare pays a bit below cost, 177 percent of Medicare should be at least 50 percent above cost,” said Mark Hall, director of the health law and policy program at Wake Forest University. “Is that a reasonable margin?

A N.C. Senate bill that would ban female genital mutilation, filed by Sen. Joyce Krawiec of Forsyth County, was cleared in its first committee step and will now go to the Senate Rules and Operations Committee. Kristina Gupta, an assistant professor of women’s, gender and sexuality studies at Wake Forest, said it remains “unknown whether this is a real problem in North Carolina” because it is unknown “whether all, some or none of these women and girls actually underwent female genital cutting.”

John Currie, new Wake Forest University athletic director with a history at Kansas State and University of Tennessee, spoke with reporters about the challenges of working in university athletics and the lessons he’s learned through his years of experience. “Balance and perspective is probably the biggest thing” to keep in mind while overseeing athletics. That and seeking to base decisions on the integrity of the university and welfare of student-athletes, he added, gives him conviction that has helped him contend with the heat he’s taken. “No one likes to be criticized, but maybe over time you build up some scar tissues,” he said. “Because, ultimately, if you’re so wounded by noise that you can’t do your job, then you’re not a professional.”

Big insurers are beginning to offer new plans that have lower premiums but less oversight over what providers can charge for their services, having done away with provider networks. “It’s a bold move,” said Mark Hall, director of the Health Law and Policy Program at Wake Forest University in North Carolina. Still, he said, it’s “not an optimal way” because patients generally don’t want to negotiate with their doctor on prices. “But it’s an innovative way to put matters into the hands of patients as consumers,” said Hall. “Let them deal directly with providers who insist on charging more than 140 percent of Medicare.”

Kami Chavis, professor of law at Wake Forest, explains that even if people who experience hate crimes decide to report them and are able to navigate the reporting process, it can be difficult to charge on the basis of ethnic intimidation or a hate crime, and it can be difficult to prove. “You have to have a nexus, you have to have something to prove,” Chavis said. “The prosecutor doesn’t want to lose the case because you don’t want this person to escape justice just because you weren’t able to prove your element.”

The United Methodist Church may not be as united as its name suggests, following a divisive 53 to 47 percent vote this week that reinforced the church’s policy that homosexuality is “incompatible with Christian teaching.” Wake Forest School of Divinity professor Tom Frank said the global government structure of the church poses a unique problem in that the customs and laws of other countries come into play. “Other Protestant denominations do not have shared governments across nations and cultures. It makes it very complicated. Many of the delegates come from nations where there is almost no tradition of democracy and where homosexuality is actually a crime.”

After the controversy over a blackface photo in Ralph Northam’s medical school yearbook, universities are reviewing their yearbooks for material that could be considered racist or offensive. José Villalba, Vice President for Diversity and Inclusion and Chief Diversity Officer at Wake Forest, says the university knew it needed to do better and, decades ago, opened an office of minority affairs, now called the Intercultural Center. “It’s not a way of patting ourselves on the back.

John Petrocelli, an associate professor of psychology at Wake Forest, hopes the TEDx talk he gave Saturday at the University of Nevada in Reno will be a call to action on B.S. He began studying B.S. about seven years ago, intent on finding out when and why it happens. For his research, he defines B.S. or “bull—-” as “communications that result from little to no concern for truth, evidence and/or established semantic, logical, systemic or empirical knowledge.” Through his research, and the TEDx talk, Petrocelli hopes to inspire people to “call B.S.” when they hear or read it — and discourage the source from trying it again.

Wake Forest graduate student Emily Thompkins and WFU biologist David Anderson published new research from a decades-long study of Galápagos Nazca boobies. The female seabirds have shorter lifespans than their male counterparts, which Wake Forest researchers say is due to sex-differentiated breeding behaviors. In the annual quest for the best breeding mate, the older female Nazca booby’s choice to pair with a younger mate may contribute to lifespan differences within the species, said Tompkins.

What’s the value of a corporate name? When it comes to combining BB&T Corp. and SunTrust Banks Inc. — two super-regional banks collectively more than 275 years old — it could be as pivotal a decision as any integration step they take.

Officials have not released the name of the police officer who shot and killed a 21-year-old black man in Hoover, Alabama. The Mayor of Hoover said that withholding the officer’s identity is about fairness, and a professor who teaches police accountability in the Chicago School of Law says that it’s not uncommon for police to withhold an officer’s name in similar situations. Wake Forest law professor Kami Chavis is shocked law enforcement hasn’t released the officer’s name. She says private individuals are not the same as police officers. “They are empowered to use force and authorized to use force during the normal course of their duties and many times that is appropriate,” Chavis said.

Community members found a swastika carved in the gravel driveway of the Good Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Hallettsville, Texas, which has a predominantly black congregation. Kami Chavis, Wake Forest University School of Law professor and hate crimes expert, said a swastika is an indisputable symbol of hate. “It’s meant to strike fear not only in the members that enter that church but also in that whole community. That’s what is unique about hate crimes, because it harms not only the targeted individual but also reverberates across the wider community.”

“Virginia’s ban on governors serving consecutive terms does not apply to someone who succeeds to the governor’s office midterm,” said Wake Forest political science professor John Dinan, a top scholar of the Virginia Constitution. “A resignation from Northam would open the possibility for Fairfax to serve nearly seven years as governor, if he were to run for and win in 2021, and that would be a significant length of time for a Virginia governor.”

The top three statewide elected officials in Virginia, all Democrats, are embroiled in scandal and facing calls to resign, testing the state’s constitution and line of succession and even raising the possibility of a new election later this year. If the Lieutenant Governor or Attorney General for Virginia either step down or take the place of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam, the succession process for the lieutenant governorship gets complicated. If Fairfax either becomes governor or resigns, he will vacate his current office and the state Senate president pro tem, Republican Steve Newman, would be empowered to “discharge the duties” of the lieutenant governorship, said John Dinan, a Wake Forest professor and expert on state constitutions.

Lauren Rhue, professor of information systems and analytics at the Wake Forest University School of Business, said: “This study is well executed, of course, and highlights the problems associated with large-scale deployment of facial recognition without oversight. This is especially true as law enforcement adopts the software, but it affects other companies who would use facial recognition for their internal needs.”

U.S. Rep. Virginia Foxx, R-5th of North Carolina introduced a bill which would defund entities that provide access to abortion, including Planned Parenthood. Wake Forest University political science professor John Dinan says it is unlikely that the bill would move to a floor vote. “There is little reason to expect that a bill to defund Planned Parenthood would be approved by the House of Representatives, now that the House is under Democratic control.”

Wake Forest professor of criminal law Ron Wright, spoke with Phoenix, Arizona’s 91.5 KJZZ public radio about his Dec. 4 New York Times article on racial bias and discrimination in jury selection. “I want a criminal justice system where every part of the community feels invested, they feel like they are part of doing justice and…if there are certain chunks of the community that realize ‘we’re getting systematically excluded from the jury,’ then that breaks down a relationship of trust. It makes the criminal justice system less legitimate.”
