Pockets of traditionalism
Professor Emeritus of Management Norma Carr-Ruffino discussed successful female executives for a Dec. 19 The Huffington Post article. "The culture is important and it affects corporate culture… It's what I call pockets of traditionalism," Carr-Ruffino said, "and we find that not only in geographical locations but in certain kinds of industries."

Science buzz
Professor of Biology John Hafernik's research into "zombie bees" was ranked among the "Top Science Stories of 2013" in a Dec. 19 KQED Science Blog post. "The bees that are parasitized essentially get bee insomnia. They leave their hives at night, which is a really bad time for honey bees to be leaving their hives. Bees that fly away at night basically are on a flight of the living dead. They're not coming back," Hafernik said.

Familiar comfort
Professor of Health Education Adam Burke commented for a Dec. 25, 2013 Baltimore Sun article about the illegal importation of Russian medicines to the U.S. "People have their traditions, and if they grew up with them, they're used to those traditions," Burke said. "If you were to go to Ghana or somewhere they have different health practices, you'd probably be uncomfortable and want to do what you're accustomed to."
