Wake In The News Synopsis

The Galápagos sit in the cross hairs of one of the world’s most destructive weather patterns, El Niño, which causes rapid, extreme ocean heating across the Eastern Pacific tropics. In this interactive feature, climate scientists weigh in on the future of these islands. David Anderson, a biologist at Wake Forest who studies the blue-footed booby seabird, said the ravages of El Niño were a surprise when he began working on the islands in the 1980s. “Now we are wondering, how frequent do these things get? El Niños have a bulldozer effect and they are happening more and more. One hundred years from now, I would not be surprised if the blue-footed boobies were gone” if current trends continue, Anderson said.

Wake Forest continues to be a leader among colleges and universities focused on wellbeing, and the University’s efforts to help students thrive were featured in this Chronicle of Higher Education story. The story notes Wake Forest has created an Office of Wellbeing Office of Wellbeing to serve everyone on campus, developed a wellbeing-focused freshman course and offered individual wellness coaching sessions. Wake Forest has also begun a research initiative, led by director Nicole W. Brocato, to create an assessment that measures student wellbeing and program outcomes. Wellbeing is a complex and multifaceted concept, so Wake Forest is implementing a suite of interconnected efforts to help students. “Maybe,” Brocato said, “no one single program is helping someone to suddenly have meaning in life.”

Christian B. Miller, Wake Forest professor of philosophy, said the question “How do you know if you’re a good person?” posed by NBC’s comedy show “The Good Place” is a multi-faceted one. A good person, Miller said, is someone whose behavioral and psychological profiles perfectly match up. Not only must the person show virtuous tendencies — our world’s hallmarks for “good,” such as “honesty, compassion, kindness, generosity, temperance, fortitude, justice, and the like” — but the person must act upon these virtues consistently and for the right reasons.

Mentoring can have a huge impact, but it requires a sustained institutional commitment. When considering mentorships in the #MeToo era, Allison McWilliams, an assistant vice president at Wake Forest who directs its Mentoring Resource Center, said “mentoring relationships are, and will always be, power relationships. Should we avoid them for fear of the damage that might be inflicted? Of course not. But it does mean that we should not enter into these relationships lightly.” She advises students to sound out others about potential mentors, whether male or female; to have multiple mentors in a network so that no one relationship starts to make them feel needy or dependent; and to know when to end the mentorship. “Trust your instincts,” she advises.

A group of Wake Forest alumni, staff, faculty and students sat down for dinner as strangers and left as friends. As part of the university’s “Call to Conversation,” the participants were tasked with leaving their differences at the door in pursuit of meaningful conversation. “It’s not an opportunity to argue points. It’s meant to encourage good dialogue,” said Andrea Ellis, the university’s assistant vice president of innovation who led the rollout of the program for students. Hatch said the art of conversation is threatened because of polarizing viewpoints and technology that alienates people from one another. “I think it’s very important to renew what it means to sit down and have face-to-face conversation.”

In a recent study 58% of working women and 68% of working men in America said that they believe they can voice an unpopular opinion at work without negative consequences. Being able to disagree with civility is also the only way to cut through the amount of false information or speculation passed off as fact in company conversations, said John Petrocelli, an associate professor of psychology at Wake Forest. When friends get together to work on a project, they’re often too focused on enriching their relationships to question each other. That sets the conditions for bullshit to flourish, he said.

Roger Beahm, professor of practice in marketing at the Wake Forest’s School of Business explains why a price match guarantee is an effective strategy: “A price-match guarantee is quite effective for retailers because it is a way they can add credibility to a claim of low pricing. In retail, as in other areas of marketing, most people make claims. Unless these claims are both (1) meaningful, and (2) believable, they often don’t generate much response. A claim of “lowest price” is substantive, and can attract attention and interest. It can also turn into an increased customer base and higher sales volume.”

After 14 years of leaking, the Taylor Energy mishap is threatening to become one of the country’s worst-ever oil spills — rivaling 2010’s Deepwater Horizon disaster, the largest in U.S. history.

“It’s one thing to say you’re leaking one or three barrels a day. But at 700 barrels a day you’re getting into some interesting numbers,” Stan Meiburg, the former Acting Deputy Administrator of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, said in an interview.  “If — and that’s a big if — the rates have been occurring at that rate for 14 years, you get a big number,” added Meiburg, who is now the director of Graduate Studies in Sustainability at Wake Forest University.

Wright wrote: “My recently published research on juror removal in North Carolina conducted with colleagues at the Wake Forest University School of Law proves — for the first time with statewide evidence — that peremptory challenges are indeed a vehicle for veiled racial bias that results in juries less sympathetic to defendants of color.

Government officials in Brazil say deforestation in the Amazon rainforest hit its highest rate in a decade. More than 3,050 square miles of the world’s largest rainforest was destroyed in a year — an area roughly five times the size of London. Conservation biologist Miles Silman, Wake Forest’s Director of the Center for Energy, Environment, and Sustainability, appeared in a live TV segment on BBC’s “World News Today” to discuss the findings. Silman explained  the Amazon is incredibly important both in terms of its high biodiversity – housing between a third and a quarter of all species on the entire planet – and its mitigation of climate change. “As we lose those forests, we not only lose the ability to store carbon but we also return that carbon to the atmosphere.”

The Wake Forest community remembers President George H.W. Bush and his visit for the National Presidential Debate hosted by the college in 1988. Beth Dawson McAlhany, alumnus and Wake Forest Director of Development for the Northeast region, was one of the three students who successfully petitioned to host the debate at Wake Forest. “Wake immediately embraced us as a representative team of three students who would be involved,” McAlhany recalls. “I just remember that so much of my college life had to do with that from there on.” McAlhany said she will always remember Bush as a humble and kind person. “He just exemplified the values and the leadership that our country deserves and across all offices,” she said. “He just, I thought, was a great human being and a great patriot.”

The troubling number has closed significantly since the Equal Pay Act became law in 1963, but progress has slowed despite the continued scrutiny of the issue. Another disparity, equally disturbing and just as discriminatory, has not gotten the same kind of attention: the racial income gap. In 2016, the Pew Research Center released figures showing that college-educated black and Hispanic men earned 80% of the hourly wages earned by college-educated white men.

It is shameful that women made only 80.5 cents for every $1 earned by their male counterparts in 2017, according to data from the Institute for Women’s Policy Research. The troubling number has closed significantly since the Equal Pay Act became law in 1963, but progress has slowed despite the continued scrutiny of the issue. Another disparity, equally disturbing and just as discriminatory, has not gotten the same kind of attention: the racial income gap. In 2016, the Pew Research Center released figures showing that college-educated black and Hispanic men earned 80% of the hourly wages earned by college-educated white men.

In November, Kim Reynolds was elected Iowa’s first female governor. Like many official documents of that time, the Iowa state constitution uses male pronouns when detailing the duties and responsibilities of the governor. There hasn’t been much activity by states to adopt gender-neutral language in recent years, according to John Dinan, a Wake Forest political science professor who follows state politics. A constitutional amendment adopted by New York in 2001 may be the most recent. Vermont and Maine adopted amendments in 1994 and 1998, respectively, he said.

The Journal of Occupational Health reports that business travelers who spend two weeks a month or more traveling are significantly more likely to report a host of health problems including depression, anxiety, alcohol dependence and sleep problems.

Forti said make time periodically to take stock of how you’re feeling and what you’re doing. “When you travel a lot, you can get into autopilot, and start doing things and not know why, like eating the same big meal at the same restaurant, or not talking to your partner.”

The pervasiveness of smartphones and police on-body cameras make it easier to capture and share video of police behavior, forcing police departments to address potential abuses of power. “It’s no longer a police officer’s word against a suspect that they have stopped for a possible crime, because you have these real-time depictions of these encounters,” said Kami Chavis, a law professor at Wake Forest.

Holding public hearings with people who are in Robert Mueller’s orbit could still cause problems for the special counsel, according to Katy Harriger, a political science professor at Wake Forest who studies the history of independent counsel investigations. “There’s this perennial tension between congressional investigations and special prosecutors because Congress’s goal is to shed light on everything, while it’s much better for Mueller to keep what he’s doing secret until he issues his indictments.”

The two top U.S. tobacco manufacturers, Altria Group Inc. and Reynolds American Inc., have signaled that they would support an FDA recommendation to Congress to raise the minimum purchasing age of tobacco from age 18 to 21. This shift in manufacturer support may mark a serious change for the future of tobacco and its sales, but John Dinan, a political science professor at Wake Forest, said Congress does not have the power to simply raise the tobacco-buying age to 21. “It would have to come up with a workaround of the sort it used in 1984 in inducing states to raise the drinking age to 21. States were given a choice of raising the drinking age, but then told that they would lose a portion of their federal highway grants if they didn’t take this step,” said Dinan.

Sears has begun to close low-performing stores across the country after filing for bankruptcy in mid-October. These closures will include the Sears store at Hanes Mall, which has been an anchor tenant since the mall opened in 1975. “While not really surprising, it is quite disappointing,” said Roger Beahm, executive director of the Center for Retail Innovation at Wake Forest University School of Business. Beahm said that with Sears no longer owning the property, “shutting the store at Hanes Mall is another way to further reduce cost and focus only on their most profitable properties.”

Former N.C. Gov. Jim Martin called the defeat of two controversial state constitutional amendments a victory against overreach by the General Assembly. The amendments would have altered how judicial vacancies are filled by the governor and the composition of the elections board. John Dinan, a political science professor at Wake Forest, said “it is not surprising that voter support for the six amendments broke down as it did — approving four dealing with rights and policies, and then soundly rejecting the two amendments with separation of powers implications.”

Voters in at least two dozen states and localities across the nation will find initiatives aimed at government or election reform on their ballots this year.

Lawmakers may be wary of legalizing marijuana or raising the minimum wage, he notes, but “when you put them up for a vote, voters almost always say yes, we’re in favor of that, even when it’s been blocked in the state legislature.”

Wake Forest political science professor, John Dinan, helped answer a reader question in the Winston-Salem Journal Ask SAM column. The reader asked why it seems candidates in this election are touting their political afflictions less in political ads than they have in the past. Dinan said this omission on political signs and ads is surprising “given that party affiliation has been shown in political science studies to be the most important piece of information for voters in deciding how to cast their ballots.”

Birmingham, Alabama will get a professional basketball team in 2022, but the team will be a minor-league affiliate G League team rather than a more well-known NBA League team. The addition of the professional basketball team may lead to economic benefits for the city says Wake Forest sports economist Todd McFall. “I see potential upsides,” he says, “but I think this is going to take a little bit of time, just because the idea of whatever the G League is isn’t really clear in people’s minds.”

Texas has fined health insurance company Humana for network adequacy deficiencies after they canceled contracts with anesthesiologists at over 20 hospitals in some of the most populous parts of the state. It’s unusual for states to fine insurers over network adequacy issues, said Mark Hall, a nonresident senior fellow in the economic studies program at the Brookings Institution and director of the Health Law and Policy Program at Wake Forest University’s School of Law. “There needs to be some way to hash out whether the insurer is making a good enough effort to negotiate, or the provider is insisting on an unreasonable rate,” Hall said.

In an opinion piece, Sidney Shapiro, Fletcher chair in administrative law at Wake Forest University School of Law, wrote that the after-effects of natural disasters often disproportionally affect the poor or people of color. Lagoons of animal waste from North Carolina hog farms overflowed after Hurricane Florence’s record rainfall and released toxic chemicals into those communities putting residents and the environment at risk. Civil courts have provided an opportunity to successfully fight back against companies like Murphy-Brown, the multinational corporation that owns most of North Carolina’s largest hog farms. “Such lawsuits illustrate how the U.S. civil courts remain one of our society’s ‘great equalizers’ – a place where even the wealthiest individuals and most powerful corporations can be held accountable.”
