Cash back?
Associate Professor of Management Mitchell Marks discussed the likely impact of the sale of Safeway for a March 7 NBC Bay Area news report. Cerberus, an investment group that owns Albertsons, Lucky and other companies, "will probably close some stores," Marks said. "They are spending $8 billion on this acquisition, so they are going to have to get some of that back right away."

Silver lining
A March 10 CBC News article on aging in the LGBT community mentioned Professor of Social Work and Gerontology Brian de Vries' research. "The idea of aging alone, or aging without children — those are not exclusively LGBT issues," de Vries said, "the more we could break free of the traditional notion of how services are provided, the better we are to offer services in a really person-centered appropriate way."

Pier assistance
Broadway World reported in a March 10 article that researchers from SF State's Romberg Tiburon Center contributed to the Exploratorium's award-winning Bay Observatory Wired Pier, which allows the Exploratorium to be a research site and data collector for scientists who study the Bay.
