Info You Should Know

* Scam Alerts – Copiers/Printers

Individuals on campus are again randomly receiving scam calls from individuals requesting departmental printer and/or copier information (model or serial numbers, cartridge numbers, etc.).  Keep in mind, UE current printer/copier vendors already have access to UE equipment information and will never call departments requesting it.  In some cases, scammers are calling for individuals by name, saying that they need copier/printer information for repair purposes.  A scammers intent is to obtain information and to bill the University. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY INFORMATION.  Simply tell the caller that you are not authorized to provide information and refer them to the Office of Administrative Services.  Usually this quickly ends the conversation.

If you receive a scam call, please report it to Kim Winsett, Office of Administrative Services at 2940.

* Yasser Alhenawi

Assistant Professor of Finance Yasser Alhenawi has had his fourth publication this year. His manuscript titled "Momentum Effect in U.S. Stocks: An Exponential Effect" has been accepted for publication in The Empirical Economics Letters. In this paper, Dr. Alhenawi shows evidence that returns increase exponentially, not linearly, with momentum. He concludes that momentum carries additional pricing information i.e. stocks do not only tend to “move in the same direction,” they also make “additional gain” – an indication of strong herd behavior.



* Men's Soccer Signs Cortez, Sciarra

The University of Evansville men’s soccer team added even more attacking firepower to an already bright incoming 2013 class, as head coach Mike Jacobs and his staff announced the signing of Felipe Cortez and Tyrus Sciarra.

“We are very excited about our 2013 incoming class, and believe that adding players of the caliber of Felipe and Tyrus with the solid nucleus we have returning will only continue to bolster a deep and versatile roster,” Jacobs said.


Notable:  Cortez comes to Evansville as one of the nation’s more exciting prospects from the United States Soccer Development Academy.  A prospect from the Chicago Fire Academy of Major League Soccer (MLS), Cortez led the Fire to the 2012 Super-20 League National Championship last summer, where they defeated current Purple Aces’ defender Charlie Macias and the Columbus Crew.  Based on his outstanding performance throughout the championships, Felipe was named as the tournament’s Most Valuable Player.  Cortez currently plays for the Chicago Fire Reserves of the Premier Development League (PDL).  He is a former participant of the US Under-14 national team pool and the USYSA Region II Olympic Development Program (ODP).  Cortez arrives at Evansville after transferring from Robert Morris University in Chicago, where he tallied six points on a goal and four assists last season.  He will have two years of eligibility remaining.

Coach Jacobs on Cortez:  “Felipe is a dynamic attacking player that will fit in really well with our current players and system.  His ability to create and finish scoring chances makes him someone that can be an integral part of our team’s attack.”


Notable:  Sciarra is an athletic and versatile attacking player that was a teammate of incoming classmate Landon Souder on the Under-18 Lexington FC team that competes in the USYSA National League, and has already qualified for the 2013 USYSA Region II Championships.  A two-time all-state selection at Ryle High School, Sciarra led his team to a Kentucky High School state final in 2011.  During her career at Ryle, he set the school’s all-time scoring record by netting 72 career varsity goals.

Coach Jacobs on Sciarra:  “Tyrus has all the tools to be a key contributor for our team.  His athleticism, work rate and ability to finish scoring chances make him a threat in the final third of the field.”
