Bats navigate at night by making calls and listening to the sounds that bounce back, a type of biological sonar known as echolocation. Aaron Corcoran at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and Theodore Weller at the Pacific Southwest Research Station in Arcata, California, recorded the calls of hoary bats (Lasiurus cinereus) as the animals flew along a river channel. The team found that bats often eschewed their normal echolocation in favor of short, high-frequency ‘microcalls’ — and sometimes flew without making any calls at all.

There were some very big victories in local races for anyone who cares about ending mass incarceration. These prosecutor offices are perhaps the most powerful in the criminal justice systems — helping decide who goes to prison, for what, and for how long. In the past, these races haven’t gotten too much attention. A previous study by Ronald Wright of Wake Forest University School of Law, looking at data for 10 states, found that about 95 percent of incumbent prosecutors — often supporters of old “tough on crime” and war on drugs–focused policies — won reelection when they sought it between 1996 and 2006.

The challenge for older adults who want to lose weight is that the body burns both fat and muscle when in a calorie-deficit situation. For every pound you lose, up to one-third of it may be muscle. According to the results of a study by researchers from Wake Forest University published last year, one possible answer is to pair a weight loss program with weight training. Researchers studied 249 adults, all in their 60s, all of them either overweight or obese.  The diet-and-walk group lost 4 pounds of muscle mass. The diet-only and the weight training group each lost about 2 pounds of muscle mass.

Wake In The News Synopsis

The social pressure to have an opinion and a lack of accountability are what lead to the mix of truth, half-truth and outright falsehood known as bullshit. According to John V. Petrocelli — a Wake Forest University psychology professor and the author of a new paper in The Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, the technical definition of bullshitting is “a pervasive social behavior involving communication with little to no concern for evidence and/or established semantic, logical, systemic, or empirical knowledge.” Bullshitting is not lying per se—Petrocelli says a liar is someone who is actually concerned with the truth and is actively trying to divert their audience from the truth.

President Trump’s relationship with his former personal physician Harold Bornstein began to sour more than a year ago. Bornstein has accused Trump’s aides of taking his medical records without consent to have his property removed. “Generally speaking, doctors own the originals and patients have only a right to obtain copies, and even then not necessarily copies of everything,” said Mark Hall, an expert on medical law at Wake Forest University. “Thus, it’s possible one could argue that actual theft was involved — if Dr. Bornstein did not hand them over voluntarily or endorse their transfer after the fact.”

John Petrocelli teaches psychology at Wake Forest University, North Carolina, and has published a study in the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology entitled “Antecedents of bullshitting”. The study tries to understand under what conditions people feel authorized or encouraged to say bullshit. As Petrocelli notes, other research has shown that saying bullshit is more socially accepted than lying. Perhaps because sometimes those who say bullshit do so to encourage the sense of belonging of a group around an idea. It does not matter if this idea is based on untrue facts.

After their first pregnancy — twin girls — ended in a stillbirth last week, all Dan and Kristin Christensen of Apex, N.C. wanted was to have the remains cremated and to bring their babies’ ashes home. The problem, found in North Carolina’s general statutes, is that “the simultaneous cremation of the human remains of more than one person within the same cremation chamber is forbidden.”

Tanya Marsh, a professor of law at Wake Forest University who has a special interest in funerary law, said the statute most likely was crafted in the interest of protecting consumers from unscrupulous funeral home or crematory operators who, to save money, might have wanted to cremate more than one set of remains at a time.

For generations, two numbers have signaled whether a student could hope to get into a top college: his or her standardized test score and his or her grade-point average. In the past 15 years, though, these lodestars have come to mean less and less. More than 1,000 colleges nationwide have dropped standardized tests as an admissions requirement. That number includes even some selective campuses such as George Washington, Wake Forest, and Wesleyan. There are good arguments supporting these schools’ decisions: for instance, that standardized test scores are highly correlated with family income.

Any effort to legalize sports gambling in the state — like the implementation of the lottery — wouldn’t require a change to the N.C.
