Bill Leonard, a professor at Wake Forest School of Divinity, said there will never be an evangelist as influential as Graham, owing partly to the fracturing of audiences and media since the pre-cable, pre-internet era in which Graham commanded his large audiences.

“The media that Graham used so well early in his crusades then became so pluralistic, so diverse, that there was no longer room for one central person who could pull together those evangelical subgroups,” Leonard said.

Do you have a good B.S. detector? You need one in our digital age. The skill of spotting false information—rubbish, nonsense and, yes, fake news—is so important these days that scientists have begun serious research on it.

“If you expect no one to challenge you on your opinion, you can B.S. it up all you like,” says John Petrocelli, a social psychologist and associate professor of psychology at Wake Forest.

Dr. Petrocelli’s research shows that B.S. can help strengthen a weak argument when the speaker owns up to it.  But the opposite effect is true as well: B.S. will weaken a strong argument.

A New Year show televised to millions across China on Thursday night set off a flood of indignation with its caricatures featuring blackface and African men in animal suits. With China’s broad contacts across Africa, the producers of the New Year show should have known better, said Lina Benabdallah, a Wake Forest professor and expert on China-Africa relations. “If CCTV was in some small, rural area, we can say this is naïveté,” she said. “This is at a bigger level.

Wake Forest counseling professor Samuel Gladding said that even when violence happens far away, it can have a negative effect on a person’s well-being and sense of safety. “When people experience tragedy or trauma, either personally or vicariously, they have a sense of fear, a sense of anxiety and often they become understandably upset.” Limiting young people’s exposure to media reports and social media involving these kinds of events can be beneficial.

When we feel supported, we feel less stress. But sometimes we think we are being supportive of a romantic partner and we’re not. Wake Forest communication professor Jennifer Priem studies dating relationships and explores the connection between supportive conversations and physiological signs of stress reduction. “The fastest stress recovery comes from explicit messages,” said Priem. “When a partner is stressed they are unable to focus on interpreting messages well. Clarity and eye contact help.”

Death planning is one of those uncomfortable, yet crucial, topics it’s never too early to start thinking about. This is where pre-need funeral arrangements come in: You can plan all the details of your body disposition and funeral so the burden doesn’t fall to your loved ones. Some experts are divided on pre-paying for funeral expenses.

“There are advantages for consumers who want to spend down their assets in order to qualify for Medicaid,” said Tanya Marsh, lawyer and professor of funeral and cemetery law at Wake Forest University. “But for consumers who aren’t in this situation, there are benefits to prearrangement, but not clear advantages for purchasing pre-need plans.”

Wake Forest and Winston-Salem State are using an event to try out a unique concept: the human library. Instead of checking out a book, readers can borrow a person for a candid conversation.

King spoke at Wake Forest University in 1962, the same year the university admitted its first black student.

“It was very fine and appropriate that Martin Luther King came that year too, especially since, at that time, he was not speaking at many white Southern colleges,” said Ed Wilson, who was the dean of Wake Forest University at the time. Wilson, who became provost in 1967, said King’s presence could only be compared to the greatest speakers of all time, like Winston Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt.

Race and class tensions have coexisted with policing in America since at least the 19th century, a reality that has resulted in deep mistrust between law enforcement and minority communities. Laws and policies that seem to shield cops from accountability further heighten that mistrust. “Do these laws protect good cops who found themselves in an unfortunate situation? Yes. But they also protect bad actors,” said Kami Chavis, a law professor and director of the criminal justice program at the Wake Forest School of Law. “We have to balance some of those protections against protections of citizens who are at the mercy of these officers.”

Missouri legislators are considering two proposals encouraging shared parenting when parents divorce or separate: Senate Bill 645 and House Bill 1667. The House bill unanimously passed out of the House Judiciary Committee last week, and after three years of educating legislators about the benefits of shared parenting. Linda Nielsen, professor at Wake Forest University, spoke on 52 studies that she analyzed. She found that shared parenting had beneficial effects on most of the measures of child well-being, and just this month she published an update, showing the same conclusion on 60 studies.

Todd McFall, an assistant teaching professor in the Department of Economics at Wake Forest, said interest in golf will continue to at least be maintained as long as the economy is robust. But it’s an expensive sport, he adds, and when there’s a downturn, much of the industry will suffer. “When wages stagnate or, worse, when a household loses employment, the first areas of spending that get chopped are activities like travel, visits to restaurants and participation in hobbies,” McFall said.

There is a connection between age and knee deterioration, and that is because with every step we take, we are fighting gravity and causing wear and tear on our joints. Stephen Messier, a professor and director of the J.B Snow Biomechanics Laboratory at Wake Forest University, said knee osteoarthritis is a common condition that affects more than 250 million people worldwide. Exercising and staying active can help by strengthening the muscles around your knees.

Wake Forest is conducting a study for individuals over age 50 who are overweight and experiencing knee pain most days of the week. It aims to help participants reduce pain and improve quality of live with exercise and diet.

President Trump technically does have the power to have a special counsel like Mueller fired — and the reason goes back to the Constitution. Katy Harriger, a professor at Wake Forest University and author of “The Special Prosecutor in American Politics,” says that’s because of the complicated history of the job Mueller holds. The job has gone through many permutations over the many years since it was first used in response to the Whiskey Ring scandal of the 1870s, but it’s important to note that the theoretical underpinnings of the President’s power over such a position go back to the beginning. “In Article II [of the Constitution] it does say that he has to take care that the laws are faithfully executed – that’s the source of his enforcement power,” Harriger says. “The courts said a long time ago that officers who are executing that power on behalf of the president have to be removable by him.”

“So, a restrictive covenant is just a promise where the landlord promises a tenant, in this case a grocery store, that they’re not going to lease other space to competing uses,” said Wake Forest University law professor Tanya Marsh. It’s a clause in a grocery store’s lease that says the landlord can’t rent the space to another grocer. Grocery stores don’t want another one next door. And grocery stores are big clients, so landlords are inclined to listen…But when stores close, critics say these restrictive covenants can lead to food deserts in areas where it is difficult to buy affordable or quality fresh foods.
