Info You Should Know

* Seeking Faculty Book Recommendations

Faculty members, what are you reading this summer? You're invited to share your book recommendations for a feature that will appear on UE’s website and social media channels. 

If you'd like to contribute, please e-mail Kristen Lund, director of news services (KL147) the title and author of a book you’d recommend for a broad audience -- as well as a brief explanation of why it’s worth a read -- by the end of the day Wednesday, June 5. Thank you in advance for your help!

* Health Tips: Destress Through Diet

While food isn’t a cure-all when it comes to stress, what you consume has the potential to affect your body.

Alcohol, caffeine, and high-sugar foods can contribute to mood changes, excessive stress, and blood sugar disruption.

Foods rich in the vitamin B complex, on the other hand, may help you stabilize your mood and avoid stress, while those rich in antioxidants may help combat the free radicals released when your body’s stressed.

If you feel stressed this week, increase your vitamin B and antioxidant intake by eating more veggies (especially dark leafy greens), whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds.

Bruscia and published by Barcelona Publishers. 

* Cris Hochwender

Associate Professor of Biology Cris Hochwender has a research article titled “Costs of glucosinolates in Brassica rapa: Are they context dependent?” in the most recent issue of the Open Journal of Ecology.  Two former UE biology majors— Krista Fleck and Nikki Duvall — are co-authors on the paper. The paper uncovered evidence that chemical defenses can be costly, but that those costs may be temperature dependent, occurring only under higher temperatures, where turnover of chemical compounds may be greater.

* Clark Kimberling

Professor of Mathematics Clark Kimberling  has a research article titled “Fractal Change-of-Base Functions” in the March 2013 issue of Advances and Applications in Mathematical Sciences.  The paper introduces a class of fractals similar to some pictured in the Wikipedia article “List of fractals by Hausdorff dimension."
