Associate Professor of Economics Philip King's study examining San Francisco's economic recovery and job growth was featured in an Oct. 4 Equities.com report. "The San Francisco Bay Area is known as a center of innovation," King said. "Less reported is the role of health and medical technology on the Bay Area's economy, in particular, San Francisco's economy. Much attention has been focused on social media companies like Twitter and Zynga. But another significant revolution is under way in San Francisco -- in biomedical research and technology."
Professor of Political Science Robert Smith gave BET his analysis of the first presidential debate for an Oct. 4 article. "I thought it was almost a perfect draw, but Romney seemed more engaged than the president did," Smith said. "If a person hasn't paid much attention to the campaign until tonight, they wouldn't know the president's main argument against Romney, but they [now] know Romney's main argument against Obama, so in that sense, Romney was more effective."
