John Sullivan, professor of management, discussed human resources managers
and budgets in the August issue of HR Magazine. He said managers should
draft and adopt a budget, but that they can't then forget about it. "You've
got to be agile," he said, adding that mangers should be prepared
to update budgets quarterly.
Melissa Camacho, assistant professor of broadcast and electronic communication
arts, commented for an Aug. 8 Boston Herald article on ABC talk show "The
View" co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck's emotional reaction to an
on-air debate about the morning-after pill. Camacho mentioned that
each co-host on "The" View is carefully selected to represent
a major American demographic. "You know how many conservatives
will write to the show cheering her for this?" Camacho said. "Talk
shows like this are very orchestrated; these are not natural occurrences."
Still all about the story
An Aug. 8 San Mateo County Times story discussed how Bay Area journalism
schools are training their students to work with new media such as
online publications, podcasts and digital video. "We still focus
on storytelling," said Andrew DeVigal, assistant professor of
journalism. "Reporters still need to write and report and edit." SF
State offers a major concentration in online news. The story also ran
in several other papers that are part of the Alameda News Group.
Adjunct geosciences Professor Jan Null's studies on heat deaths in cars
is cited in State Bill 1806, which would make it illegal to leave pets
in cars, according to the Aug. 15 San Francisco Chronicle. The bill
cites Null's research, which shows that "on a day when the outside
temperature is 86 degrees, it would only take five minutes for the
temperature inside a car parked in the sun to reach 132 degrees even
if the windows are cracked."
