UW in the News

July 17, 2017

State, national and international media frequently feature the University of Wyoming and members of its community in stories. Here is a summary of some of the recent articles:

The Jackson Hole News and Guide printed an Associated Press story in which UW economist Rob Godby commented on oil production and exploration in Wyoming. The Casper Star-Tribune also printed the story.

NexusMedia interviewed Godby about wind energy opportunities in Wyoming. RenewEconomy and The Huffington Post also printed the article.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reported that Godby told attendees at the recent Wind Operation and Maintenance Conference in Rawlins that most of the growth in renewable energy sources is occurring with wind because the economic incentives are becoming more appealing. Inside Energy also covered the Rawlins seminar. The Casper Star-Tribune reported on a second seminar in Casper. A third seminar was held in Gillette.

Jonathan Naughton, director of UW’s Wind Energy Research Center, commented in a Wyoming Business Report story on LogiLube’s addition to the Wyoming Wind Coalition. LogiLube, Wyoming’s first wind energy industry manufacturer, recently graduated from UW’s business incubator, the Wyoming Technology Business Center. North American Windpower also printed the story.

EurekAlert! and ScienceDaily picked up UW’s release about a study by UW and Duke University researchers that finds mountaintop-removal coal mining causes many streams and rivers in Appalachia to run consistently saltier for up to 80 percent of the year. International Business Times also reported on the study.

Nature interviewed Robert Kelly, a UW professor of archaeology, about an expansion project of the Canadian Archaeological Radiocarbon Database (CARD). The latest effort aims to make the software behind the site open source so research groups can set up their own versions of CARD and still contribute information to the main database.

Andrew Kniss, an associate professor in the UW Department of Plant Sciences, told Bloomberg that cutting out glyphosate use in farming would have a major impact on farmers and their bottom lines. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is evaluating glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, to determine if it causes cancer.

Wyoming Business Report reprinted, on its website, UW’s release about a new genus of plants named after UW botany Professor Greg Brown.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported that Sarah Kooienga, a UW assistant professor of nursing, received a nearly $1 million federal grant to promote integrated health care in Wyoming.

College Choice, an independent college search and rankings website, listed UW’s nursing program among the “50 Best Online RN to BSN Degrees for 2017.”

Chad Baldwin, UW associate vice president for communications and marketing, discussed with Sheridan Media UW’s No. 14 ranking by the Wall Street Journal for helping students improve their critical-thinking skills.

The Laramie Boomerang featured the Snowy Range Summer Dance Festival in which dance students from throughout the region receive instruction from guest resident faculty at UW.

The New York Times profiled former UW basketball star Josh Adams and his journey back to playing basketball following a serious car accident last August. K2 Radio reported that Adams will continue his professional career by playing basketball in Turkey.
