Wake In The News Synopsis

For Olga Pierrakos, founding chair and professor of the Department of Engineering at Wake Forest, there are no boundaries when it comes to women in engineering, and she’s determined to increase the representation of women in the field. “Right now we can say we have 42 percent women.” That’s compared to only five percent female college STEM students nationwide. Pierrakos is aimed at changing the culture of engineering in universities and beyond.

To avoid being overwhelmed by college applications or submitting shoddy work, plan ahead. “What we see repeated most often is a failure to take one’s time on the application,” said Arron Marlowe-Rogers, associate dean of undergraduate admissions at Wake Forest. “The Common Application and all of the supplements for individual colleges are in no way meant to be completed in one sitting.”

As its first group of engineering students declared their major this year, Wake Forest achieved a student body that more accurately represents the U.S. population. “Engineering really has not been a profession that has been accessible to everyone,” said Olga Pierrakos, the department chair. “Engineering exists to help people, to make processes more practical and user-friendly. To do that, our engineers have to come from a variety of backgrounds.”

The appointment of American ambassadors to African capitals has moved ahead at a glacial pace over the past two years, with some high-profile posts remaining unfilled since President Trump ordered that politically appointed ambassadors around the world step aside following his inauguration in 2017. Analysts say, in contrast, China has sent senior foreign officials to African countries. “In South Africa, China has a highly-ranked diplomat – that shows it really matters to Beijing,” says Lina Benabdallah, an expert in China-Africa relations at Wake Forest.

A 30-year review of test anxiety showed that test anxiety is correlated with negative educational outcomes and that the effects were strongest in the middle grades. “We, as a culture, often think of tests as something you should be anxious about,” said Wake Forest psychology professor Shannon Brady. “We also believe that anxiety is likely to hurt you.” The goal should be to manage stress, and not simply reduce it, and for both children and adults rethinking stress can be very helpful.

The “dark triad” makes us more creative but it turns out there is an opposite, the “light triad.” Psychology professor William Fleeson said the three traits that make up the “light triad” fit well into existing research on what makes someone a good person. In particular, believing that other people are good seems to be key. “The more one believes that others are good, the less one feels the need to protect against them, the less one feels the need to punish them.”

Ronald F. Wright, a criminal law professor at Wake Forest, said it was not uncommon for newly elected prosecutors to drop cases brought by their predecessors. But it was far more unusual for them to suggest that they might file new charges. “You inherit the file, you start looking through it, and the deeper you get in the file, the more you realize there are possible weak spots in your case. I view this as a natural process of a new chief prosecutor becoming familiar with the details of the case.”

But when fathers alleged abuse, the fathers lost custody only 12 percent of the time. “Even when the abuse is credited, women are losing,” Jane Aiken, dean of the School of Law at Wake Forest, said. “This is about not trusting women. I think it’s very powerful. Women are expected to behave as mothers. But then when they come in and say ‘I’m trying to protect my child,’ then they’re not believed, You’re just in a trap, and it’s a gendered trap.”

Domestic terrorism “has become increasingly more of a threat with the resurgence of white supremacists groups, as well as some acts from left-wing extremists, though these account for much fewer incidents,” said Randall Rogan, a terrorism expert and professor of communications at Wake Forest. To tackle domestic terrorism more effectively, experts say the U.S. needs to expand on the work being done by law enforcement agencies to combat right-wing terrorism. There should be “increased cooperation and collaboration among all law enforcement and Department of Homeland Security and other agencies.”

Nathaniel Ivers, chairman of the department of counseling at Wake Forest, said one of the byproducts of the recent mass shootings is that people are “more acutely aware” that such incidents can happen and they are looking for potential danger signs. “I think what’s happening is we’re taking these potential red flags seriously rather than thinking, they didn’t really mean that or they couldn’t possibly do that. They’re actually taking steps.”

Much of the Amazon landscape in southern Peru could soon go missing — lost to the roaring suction pumps, scouring vacuum hoses and mercury poisoning that comes with artisanal gold mining, or the chainsaws that accompany illegal logging. Today, gold mining is primarily concentrated along the length of the Madre de Dios River. “The River Madre de Dios will be the next frontier because it is not being addressed [by authorities],” says Luis Fernandez, director of Wake Forest’s Center for Amazonian Scientific Innovation (CINCIA), who has been working to curb illegal gold mining in the area for the past 15 years.

The study found the latest software from a Chinese tech company marked black faces twice as “angry” as white faces, while Microsoft’s system scored black faces as being three times more contemptuous. “If professionals of color are systematically viewed as having more negative emotions, then they could be eliminated from the interview pool prematurely.

According to a new records analysis, hate crime cases were referred to the federal government for prosecution almost 2,000 times over the past decade, but only 15% of those referrals actually led to prosecutions. “It can be really hard to prove these cases,” said Kami Chavis, director of the criminal justice program at Wake Forest. In 2009, Congress passed legislation that expanded federal hate crime protections to include gender, gender identity and sexual orientation, and paved the way for the federal government to pursue more hate crimes cases. Even with that law on the books, Chavis said, prosecutors still have to convince a jury that a suspect was specifically motivated by hate, which can be harder than just proving a suspect was responsible for a crime.

The pressure to resolve the 2019-20 state budget dispute appears to still weigh more on Democratic Gov.

Blue Cross said the premium reductions were made possible primarily by its transition to value-based provider reimbursement and progress on reducing internal operating expenses. The newer approach — called “value-based” contracting — typically offers providers incentives for better patient outcomes through emphasizing preventive and maintenance care, which tends to be less costly than treating patients after they have become sick. Mark Hall, a law and public health professor at Wake Forest, said the rate reductions “indicate that the ACA’s reforms to the private insurance are now working better following the disruptions caused by regulatory changes in 2017.”

North Carolina State Treasurer Dale Folwell launched his attempt to move the State Health Plan to a government pricing model tied to Medicare rates, moving the SHP away from a commercial-based payment model. “If achieved, a 15% reduction in charges from hospitals, doctors and clinics would be quite significant,” said Mark Hall, a law and public health professor at Wake Forest.

Gov. Roy Cooper’s office said the governor will stress that expanding Medicaid be included in any state budget compromise submitted by Republican legislative leaders. Politics professor John Dinan, a leading expert on state legislatures said: “The question is whether Republicans can negotiate a deal with a few Democratic legislators to override the veto.…We are in much more polarized times in 2019, and it has become much more difficult in intervening years for legislative Democrats to stray from their party and override a veto.”

“There is only the slightest of daylight between this House Medicaid expansion plan and a traditional Medicaid expansion plan of the sort favored by the governor, said politics professor John Dinan. “To the extent that there is some daylight between the two plans, most notably in the work requirements and premium and copayment requirements for Medicaid recipients, several of these key features are tied up in federal court litigation, leading to dim prospects of their actually being implemented.”

Mark Hall, law and public-health professor at Wake Forest, released a study in April 2018 titled “Do States Regret Expanding Medicaid?” Hall said requiring hospitals to help pay for North Carolina’s 10% of new administrative costs “is not likely to increase costs to patients because hospitals will also see reduced uncompensated care. The two effects — tax and reduced uncompensated care — should be a wash.”

A series of Islamic State (IS) announcements of new provinces it controls in recent weeks has renewed debate over the group’s possible resurgence after its self-proclaimed caliphate fell, with some analysts warning an increasingly decentralized IS could recover and spread its tentacles to other parts of the world. Randall Rogan, a terrorism expert at Wake Forest, charged that IS’s recent announcement of new provinces and restructuring of others indicate the group has long-term plans. “The IS messaging should be taken very seriously. Although IS has lost physical territory, the virulent Islamist ideology that informs IS and its adherents continues to resonate with many disenfranchised radicalized individuals in the Muslim community and beyond.”

The Kaiser Family Foundation reported in a 2018 study that a small, but increasing, number of small and large employers are requiring employees to pay on average a $100 monthly surcharge for their spouse to stay on their insurance if the spouse’s employer offers coverage. Other employers are lowering the value of the benefit coverage for a spouse or partner rather than apply a surcharge. “Switching to spousal coverage is an option for any employed couple, but increasingly, private employers are requiring workers to pay more or all of the cost of adding family members,” said Mark Hall, a law and public-health professor at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem. “Therefore, this switch will often cost the couple more money” compared with each spouse or partner having separate coverage on their employer’s plan.

The EPA’s internal watchdog reported that the organization’s oversight of states, territories, and tribes that are delegated to implement federal laws remains a “significant management challenge.” The inspector general’s finding highlights a longstanding tension between national consistency and regional flexibility, said Stan Meiburg, former EPA deputy administrator and director of Wake Forest’s graduate programs in sustainability. “That’s embedded in federalism. The OIG leans heavier on national consistency, and the agency tends to say you need to leave some discretion.”

If this effort (with HB655) to sway enough wavering House Democrats doesn’t work, then the question is whether the governor’s counterbudget proposal might serve as a basis for bargaining with the legislature over teacher salary and school construction funding.”

The fact that the company is in wealth management, as well as capital market services and regional banking, makes First Horizon a better umbrella to use over its broad portfolio of companies, rather than either the words Capital or Tennessee might suggest.”
