Professor John Knox quoted in Foreign Policy article about Ebola

With the Centers for Disease Control now forecasting up to 1.4 million new infections from the current Ebola outbreak, what could “big data” do to help us identify the earliest warnings of future outbreaks and track the movements of the current outbreak in realtime?

Professor Mark Rabil’s work as a capital defender featured in Virginia Quarterly Review

On Dec. 16, 2007, Jennifer Vincek was pulling another overnight shift at the Shell Food Mart in downtown Statesville, North Carolina, when Jeffrey Peck, a regular at the store, stopped in for coffee and the morning paper. As usual, Vincek was alone, so she and Peck sat together and talked through the final flickers of night. She had three young children at home. Peck had five young grandkids. With Christmas just a week away and an unusual weather pattern sweeping across the East Coast, it isn’t difficult to imagine what they might have discussed. Eventually a customer wearing a green parka walked in, a nineteen-year-old named Andrew Ramseur. The store’s surveillance camera picked him up as he walked straight to the bathroom, and  then again thirty seconds later as he made his way toward the front of the store. By then Vincek had returned to the counter. She pointed him toward the bread display, where he picked up a loaf and placed it between them at the register.  Continue reading »

Professor Abigail Perdue addresses culture of cruelty in the NFL in Huffington Post blog

Only after a video of the incident surfaced did the NFL suspend Rice indefinitely. Regrettably, that suspension is on appeal, and Rice may evade punishment by invoking Article 46 of his collective bargaining agreement, which bars the NFL from disciplining a player twice for the same conduct. The NFL’s shocking response to Rice’s egregious behavior has sparked a national debate on interpersonal violence in the NFL. Continue reading »
