Hospitality green
In an Aug. 20 KGO-TV interview, Associate Professor of Hospitality Management Colin Johnson spoke about the increasing number of hotels focusing on sustainability. "Most of the major chains have bought into this idea of buying into sustainable development, looking after the environment," he said, "but also of course, it was because it produced very attractive cost savings for them."

Silent support
Professor of Communication Studies and Oakland mayoral candidate Joseph Tuman commented on Gavin Newsom's de-emphasis of the gay marriage issue as he runs for Lieutenant Governor. "He’s in a position where his rhetoric has to match the political reality of seeking statewide office,” Tuman said. "Of course he’s grown wiser about that."

No heir
In an Aug. 19 CFO Magazine story on the difficulty of corporate succession planning, Professor of Management John Sullivan commented on the apparent lack of planning at Hewlett-Packard. "Everything went wrong," he said. "It is clear...that no succession plan is in place."
