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 coverage:
Sam Kalen, a UW College of Law natural resources professor, was among legal experts who commented for a Bloomberg Law article focusing on President Joe Biden’s administration’s offer of oil leases that may not be enough to end legal challenges.
The Jerusalem Post, Ancient Origins and The Oman News Gazette noted that a new analysis of archaeological sites in the Americas challenges relatively new theories that the earliest human inhabitants of North America arrived before the migration of people from Asia across the Bering Strait. UW anthropology Professor Todd Surovell led the study. Wyoming News Now and The Laramie Boomerang published UW’s release.
John Koprowski, dean of UW’s Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources, was author of a story on the importance of connectivity that was featured in The Conversation and published by more than 50 media outlets.
The Hindustan Times, News Medical Life Sciences and New Food published articles noting that scientists, including UW researchers, report that intense exercise could help to gain control over cravings for unhealthy, fatty foods. The article first appeared in the Obesity journal.
Spectrum News Buffalo and Business Today published an Associated Press article on Staten Island Amazon workers who voted to unionize. UW law Professor Michael Duff was quoted in the article. Duff said some unions have funds to help out-of-work strikers, but sustaining such support can be burdensome for unions. It also is difficult for workers to survive long strikes, something that employers know well, he added.
A recent study, led by UW doctoral graduate Michael Curran, noted that oil and gas reclamation is good for Wyoming’s bugs. The Casper Star-Tribune reported that the study found that disturbed sagebrush reseeded with native plants hosts many times more insects than intact reference sites nearby. The scientific journal Land first published the study.
The Adirondack Explorer reported that researchers from UW are part of a team of scientists that is studying freezing rain, sleet, hail and their variations across the Lake Champlain and St. Lawrence River valleys, an area that receives the most mixed precipitation in North America. In February and March, the team collected weather pattern data that could offer insight into mixed winter precipitation.
UW Associate Professor Haibo Zhai, the Roy and Caryl Cline Chair of Engineering, Environment and Natural Resources, has four research papers referenced in the latest international climate report. Wyoming News Now published UW’s release.
The Sheridan Press and County 10 published UW’s release noting that Mortar Board, the university’s senior honor society, selected 44 new members as well as award winners for outstanding advising, service and dedication, and leadership.
