Niels Teunis, assistant professor with the Institute of Sexuality,
Social Inequality, and Health at SF State was quoted in an Associated
Press Article covering a study of sex and seniors. Teunis stated that
the findings bolster the "use it or lose it" theory. "If
you are doing it, you keep doing it. If you slack off in marriage like
when you're in your 40s, it's hard to pick it up when you are older," he
Niccolo Caldararo, a former Fairfax town councilman who teaches anthropology
at SF State, argues against the practice of creating "defensible
space" to protect from fire damage in an opinion piece published
in the Marin Independent Journal. "Promoting such practices gives
people a false sense of security and may even lead to people believing
they can ignore warnings to evacuate," he writes. "We must
end this tolerance of carelessness and acts of arson."
Baack, associate professor of business, was interviewed on
KCBS radio about the law suit brought by reporters against Hewlett
for secretly obtaining their private phone records. "It's very
disappointing news for the HP executives and board members that are
Baack. "HP clearly had been hoping to put this behind them."
Finance Professor Yea-Mow Chen appeared on ABC-7
news. Chen commented on America's trade deficit with China, as a fast-growing
has created double-digit inflation, especially for food. "Meat
prices, egg prices, those have been rising by 20% -- 15% -- and some
by 25%. So the living standards or the cost of living … [is]
much, much higher than before."
Assistant Professor of Secondary Education Jamal Cooks is
profiled in the online magazine Wiretap. He discusses a wide range
the High School Exit Exam, the importance of writing skills, and
what it means to be a literacy advocate." I ask my track athletes
all the time, 'What did you learn today?' They typically say, 'Nothing.'
I tell them that if they didn't learn anything,
then they have to share some of that blame, because they should be
able to demand that they get something out of school. I don't think
adults are encouraging students to take control of their lives and
demand that they be taught."
