  1. February 6, 2013 The Questions Brennan Can’t Dodge By MARY

    ELLEN O’CONNELL AT his confirmation hearing today, John O. Brennan, President Obama’s nominee to lead the Central Intelligence Agency, is likely to face tough questions on a host of topics, including the soaring use of drone strikes, which have killed at least four Americans, one of them intentionally; his performance as the president’s counterterrorism adviser; the rise of Islamist radicalism in northern Africa; and his past comments on engagement with Iran. Mary Ellen O’Connell, a professor of law at the University of Notre Dame, is the editor of “What Is War? An Investigation in the Wake of 9/11.” Mary Ellen O’Connell Short Professor of Law
  2. Jeffrey Bergstrand Professor of Finance “It’s quite startling that manufacturing

    actually contracted. The banking system is exacerbating the slowdown,” said Jeffrey Bergstrand, a finance professor at the University of Notre Dame.
  3. Notre Dame law professor Jimmy Gurulé, a former Treasury official,

    said he thinks there could be enough to prove wire fraud and a conspiracy to commit fraud. Although MF Global apparently didn't intend to take money from clients, it did intend to borrow that money in a way that clients probably didn't expect: to keep itself alive. Jimmy Gurulé Professor of Law
  4. Michael Desch, a University of Notre Dame expert on international

    security, suggested that Merkel, who often uses an unsecured cell phone that security experts warned could be tapped even by hobby hackers, was being disingenuous. Michael Desch Professor of Political Science
  5. Rick Garnett Professor of Law When the issue finally does

    come back to the high court, there is little doubt that the language in the DOMA case about equality and discrimination will help frame the issue, observes Richard Garnett of Notre Dame Law School. "A lot of that language is going to be really helpful to people who are challenging traditional marriage laws," he says.
  6. Should babies be allowed to 'cry it out'? By Amanda

    Enayati, CNN Contributor January 24, 2013 -- Updated 1829 GMT (0229 HKT) Darcia Narvaez, professor of psychology at the University of Notre Dame, studies moral cognition and development. Her research examines how early life experience may influence brain development, moral functioning and character in children and adults. Narvaez advocates a more responsive style of parenting that mirrors nurturing ancestral practices, including breastfeeding, frequent touch, soothing babies in distress, outdoor play and a wider community of caregivers. Darcia Narvaez Professor of Psychology
  7. Brian Proffitt Adjunct Instructor Then there is Tumblr's adult content,

    which can include pornography. "Tumblr does not insist on knowing the real identities for users, and some of the Tumblr content is very adult-oriented, both features that advertisers would find repellant," says Brian Proffitt, an adjunct instructor of management in the University of Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business.
  8. “If we had the kind of product listing and focus

    on financial flows and interdiction on North Korea that we placed on Iran, we would not be in this spot,” said George Lopez, a professor at Notre Dame and a former member of the United Nations panel of experts charged with monitoring sanctions compliance. George Lopez Hesburgh Professor of Peace Studies
  9. Timothy Matovina, Executive Director of Notre Dame’s Institute for Latino

    Studies, says while members of the Latino community have opinions on social and moral issues, he has seen that it is largely concerned with issues that hit closer to home. “The deeper desire is for the Church to be on mission,” Matovina says, giving examples such as how the Church can better serve immigrant youth that it’s not reaching, how it can better fund the Hispanic ministry, and create more Hispanic leaders. Timothy Matovina Professor of Theology
  10. David Cortright Director of Policy Studies, Kroc Institute for International

    Peace Studies Best way for Obama to help Syria is with aid and diplomacy – not weapons As onlookers gaze in horror at the civil war raging in Syria, many naturally feel a compulsion to do something to relieve the people’s suffering. Many have called for arming the Syrian rebels – a move President Obama is now reportedly considering as Bashar al-Assad’s forces are apparently poised to attack the key city of Homs. But such a step would worsen the devastation and might involve the United States in yet another Middle East war. A better way to help the Syrian people is to pursue diplomatic efforts to end the killing and provide greater support for humanitarian relief efforts. …David Cortright is the director of policy studies at the University of Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies.
  11. A new study offers a possible reason why. The research

    team, led by psychology professor Alexandra Corning, who heads Notre Dame's Body Image and Eating Disorder Lab, asked 139 undergraduates, mostly freshman, all with average BMIs, to look at photos of both "noticeably thin" and overweight women captioned with quotes ostensibly from the women expressing either positive thoughts about their bodies or negative thoughts -- "fat talk." Alexandra Corning Research Associate Professor
  12. Previous research suggested that those elements might have been brought

    to the moon from outside sources like comets and meteorites after the moon's crust formed and cooled. But evidence of water-forming elements in lunar- native rocks complicates that theory. "I still think the impact scenario is the best formation scenario for the moon," study leader Hejiu Hui, an engineering researcher at the University of Notre Dame, noted, "but we need to reconcile the theory of hydrogen."
  13. Politics editor Christina Bellantoni hosted a Google hangout Friday with

    religious leaders from both sides of the argument. They addressed how each of their faith communities view same-sex marriage, and how and why they’ve gotten involved with the political discourse. Joining her were: Father Paulinus Odozor, professor of Christian ethics and moral theology at the University of Notre Dame
  14. Mark McKenna Professor of Law DAN BOBKOFF, BYLINE: Once you

    buy a book in the U.S., you’re free to lend it, throw it away or sell it. This is called the First Sale Doctrine, says law professor Mark McKenna of Notre Dame MARK MCKENNA: This is why there are used book stores.
  15. None
  16. To effectively blame Mason for the company's problems seems to

    border on scapegoating. As Notre Dame Professor of Management Timothy Judge, who researches management psychology and leadership personality, put it in an email to MoneyWatch: After all, Mason started the company, but it seems as if that is, in a real sense, being used against him. Moreover, it seems odd to me that the board, who bought into Mason and his plan, not exit with him. Why are they less responsible than he? Timothy Judge Schurz Professor of Management
  17. Jeffrey Bergstrand Professor of Finance Economists Scott Baier and Jeffrey

    Bergstrand have also found in a series of research papers that agreements similar to the prospective TPP and U.S.-EU pacts create far more trade than they divert.
  18. Rick Garnett Professor of Law "Although Justice Kennedy's opinion explicitly

    states that it is confined to same-sex marriages that have been recognized by states, it contains reasoning and language that will certainly be used, in later cases, to argue that legal recognition of same-sex marriage by all states is constitutionally required," said University of Notre Dame law professor Richard W. Garnett, a past clerk to former Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist. "Almost certainly, and fairly soon, that argument will be presented squarely to the court."
  19. O. Carter Snead Professor of Law, William P. and Hazel

    B. White Director of the Center for Ethics and Culture But University of Notre Dame law professor O. Carter Snead, a bioethicist who specializes in the governance of science, medicine and biotechnology, urged the United Kingdom to "proceed slowly and cautiously" given the "unresolved safety and ethical questions" around the new technique.
  20. In an effort to explore the meaning behind wedding registries,

    University of Notre Dame marketing professor Tonya Williams Bradford interviewed and observed 72 registrants, gift-givers and retail employees. She concluded that families "outsource" the ritual of gift-giving to retailers, leading to less personalized, more commercial gifts. Tonya Williams Bradford Assistant Professor of Marketing
  21. The cardinal who will choose the next pope will pray

    for guidance, but all believers need to pray along, says theologian Timothy O'Malley, director of the Notre Dame Center for Liturgy. The music site Spotify called on O'Malley and other experts at University of Notre Dame to select two dozen chants, hymns, suites, orchestral music and more at Conclave: Institute for Church Life, University of Notre Dame Timothy O’Malley Professor of Theology
  22. Brian Proffitt Adjunct Instructor "Whoever holds the mapping data is

    going to be a hot commodity," said Brian Proffitt, author of several books on mobile technology and an adjunct instructor of management in the University of Notre Dame. "As larger vendors acquire mapping data, businesses and consumers will discover that it's more difficult to gain free access and correct errors."
  23. China's criticism shifted then from calling North Korea's actions "not

    helpful" to actual condemnation, said George Lopez, a nuclear proliferation expert at Notre Dame University who served on a U.N. panel that monitored sanctions on North Korea. The new sanctions are unlikely to stop North Korea from staging another nuclear test or two, but hurt its weapons program in the medium to long term, Lopez said. "The fact this resolution has so many multiple prongs and assertions and stipulations is a very clear message to the North that the Chinese are serious," Lopez said. George Lopez Hesburgh Professor of Peace Studies
  24. British double-jeopardy laws prevent anyone charged in the United Kingdom

    from being extradited to face similar charges in another country, according to James Gurule, a law professor at the University of Notre Dame. Officials at the Justice Department declined to comment on the issue. Jimmy Gurulé Professor of Law
  25. Darcia Narvaez Professor of Psychology Darcia Narvaez, professor of psychology

    at the University of Notre Dame, is a leading figure in the field of moral development, is concerned about the effects excess stress in infants leads to long-term developments that undermine ethical behavior. She contends that her studies show that infants experience stress when separated from parents, thereby flooding the brain with cortisol. Increased cortisol adversely effects the development of conscience, empathy, self-regulation and impulse control. “The way we raise our children today in this country is increasingly depriving them of the practices that lead to well being and a moral sense,” Narvaez says.
  26. William Evans Keough-Hesburgh Professor of Economics That’s backed up by

    a study by Notre Dame’s Williams Evans and Northwestern’s Craig Garthwaite, who found that the expansion of the EITC included in Clinton’s 1993 budget reduced the probability of recipient reports of high blood pressure by 3.2 percentage points and the probability of reporting biomarkers that predict stroke, heart attacks and mortality by 9.6 percentage points.
  27. Lionel Jensen Associate Professor of East Asian Languages and Cultures,

    Concurrent Associate Professor of History The controversies surrounding many Confucius Institutes were discussed in a book published last year by Lionel M. Jensen, an associate professor of East Asian languages and culture and a fellow at the Kellogg Institute for International Studies at the University of Notre Dame.
  28. Robert Blakey William and Dorothy O'Neill Professor of Law, Emeritus

    "We thought that was incriminating of Oswald," said Notre Dame law professor G. Robert Blakey, former chief counsel to the 1977 House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations, which re-examined the evidence in Kennedy's death.
  29. Kathleen Cummings Associate Professor of American Studies Director, Cushwa Center

    for the Study of American Catholicism Editor’s note: Kathleen Sprows Cummings is an associate professor of American Studies at the University of Notre Dame and the Director of the Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism. The views expressed are her own. Conventional wisdom was that a short papal conclave would result in the election of a front runner. So when I heard that there was white smoke after just five ballots, I prepared for a TV interview by reviewing notes about Cardinal Angelo Scola of Milan. Not visible on camera was a thick packet on my lap containing profiles of other candidates, just in case. Luckily, I had it arranged in alphabetical order, and quickly laid my hands on the rather slender file of Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
  30. Lloyd Hitoshi Mayer Professor of Law As Lloyd Mayer, a

    law professor at the University of Notre Dame, explained, “because Congress and the Treasury have left both the definition of political activity and, for [social welfare organizations], the amount of permitted political activity uncertain, the I.R.S. is required to make broad inquiries and to use politically sensitive criteria to decide if a given organization qualifies for tax-exempt status.”
  31. Mark McKenna Professor of Law Google scores key legal victory

    in books lawsuit "This is a huge victory for Google, which had previously tried to resolve legal issues regarding Google Books by class-action settlement," says Mark McKenna, a law professor at the University of Notre Dame.
  32. Robert Schmuhl Walter H. Annenberg- Edmund P. Joyce Professor of

    American Studies and Journalism During the recent White House ceremony celebrating Irish and American connections, President Barack Obama made a point to emphasise the heritage of several key members of his second-term administration. …Author: Robert Schmuhl
  33. Christopher Waller Gilbert Schaefer Professor of Economics St. Louis Fed's

    Waller Talks Inflation Risk, QE (Audio) Christopher Waller, senior vice president and director of research at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, discusses the Fed's leadership in monetary policy and the future of quantitative easing. Waller speaks with Bloomberg's Kathleen Hays and Vonnie Quinn on Bloomberg Radio's "The Hays Advantage."
  34. O. Carter Snead Professor of Law, William P. and Hazel

    B. White Director of the Center for Ethics and Culture The research "will lead inexorably to cloning to produce a live born child," said bioethicist O. Carter Snead, professor of law at the University of Notre Dame, a Catholic University in Indiana.
  35. Stay out of Syria Transporting the stockpiles out of the

    country or destroying them would take a lot of troops and time. "There is no exit strategy with this option either," says Michael Desch, a national security scholar at the University of Notre Dame. Michael Desch Professor of Political Science
  36. Gerald Haeffel Assistant Professor of Psychology “Thinking styles are a

    really important factor in risk for depression,” says the study’s lead author Gerald Haeffel, associate professor of clinical psychology at Notre Dame University. “How one thinks about life stress and negative moods is one of the best predictors that we have of future depression.”
  37. Cynthia Mahmood Associate Professor of Anthropology It’s hard to underestimate

    the power of those ties, said Cynthia Mahmood, an anthropology professor at the University of Notre Dame. She spent some of the past decade on the Pakistan side of Kashmir, talking to young warriors who had signed up for violent jihad.
  38. Robert Schmuhl Walter H. Annenberg- Edmund P. Joyce Professor of

    American Studies and Journalism Two key appointments will influence US foreign policy Bob Schmuhl, Professor of American Studies at Notre Dame University, and Niall O'Dowd, editor of Irish Central.com, discuss the changes we can expect in US foreign policy following yesterday's appointments.
  39. Lloyd Hitoshi Mayer Professor of Law "I'm not sure how

    much law there is because it is one of these things that everyone agrees shouldn't happen," Professor Lloyd Hitoshi Mayer of Notre Dame Law School, who has written extensively on the law and politics of tax exemptions, said in an interview yesterday.
  40. David Cortright Director of Policy Studies, Kroc Institute for International

    Peace Studies Reports of possible chemical weapons use by Syria’s Bashar Assad regime are serious and need to be addressed. …David Cortright is the director of policy studies at Notre Dame’s Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies. He blogs at www.davidcortright.net.
  41. Joshua Diehl Assistant Professor of Psychology The thinking is that

    children with autism often struggle with the complexity of social behavior, so they may more easily learn such skills in the simplified interchange with robots. In addition, they may be more motivated to interact with a robot, said Joshua Diehl, a psychology professor at the University of Notre Dame who will present the data Saturday.
  42. Jennifer Mason McAward Associate Professor of Law "The sky is

    not falling," said Jennifer Mason McAward, a Notre Dame associate law professor. "The Supreme Court made it very clear that racial discrimination in voting is unconstitutional." McAward, who clerked for Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, went on to note that "federal courts remain available to block discriminatory voting laws from taking effect." Supreme Court Rules on voting rights law: Now what?
  43. George Lopez Hesburgh Professor of Peace Studies If entities in

    Pyongyang had to use the Foreign Trade Bank, they would end up spending a lot of time seeking clarity or an exemption to avoid hassle from the U.S. Treasury and their homebase bank, said George Lopez, a former U.N. North Korea sanctions monitor, now at the University of Notre Dame.
  44. Agustin Fuentes Professor of Anthropology Other macaque observers agree that

    life is no picnic for middle monkeys. "The stress for macaques, like humans, is not so much about getting the goodies within the hierarchy. It's about how others relate to me and how I relate to others," said National Geographic explorer Agustin Fuentes, who was not involved in the study but has been observing macaques in Singapore's urban jungles using Crittercam.
  45. Timothy Judge Franklin D. Schurz Professor of Management But a

    new study, forthcoming in the Journal of Applied Psychology, sheds some light on the connection between ambition and the good life. Using longitudinal data from the nine-decade-long Terman life-cycle study, which has followed the lives and career outcomes of a group of gifted children since 1922, researchers Timothy A. Judge of Notre Dame and John D. Kammeyer-Mueller of the University of Florida analyzed the characteristics of the most ambitious among them. How did their lives turn out?
  46. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev could be charged with several crimes including use

    of weapons of mass destruction, terrorism and bombing of places of public use in addition to homicide, said former federal prosecutor and University of Notre Dame law professor Jimmy Gurulé. Jimmy Gurulé Professor of Law
  47. Linda Przybyszewski Associate Professor of History Professor Linda Przybyszewski teaches

    a class called "A Nation of Slobs" at the University of Notre Dame, in South Bend, Ind. "My students very often are floored by the beauty of some of the vintage pictures that I show them," she told Giles.
  48. James Sullivan Associate Professor of Economics There may be millions

    more poor people in the US than you think The federal measure is linked to about half a trillion dollars in federal spending every year, according to a paper published last year by two professors, Bruce D. Meyer of the University of Chicago and James X. Sullivan of the University of Notre Dame, in the Journal of Economic Perspectives.
  49. Jeffrey Bergstrand Professor of Finance "This is a major move

    to bring more developing countries into the liberalization of world trade. It doesn't necessarily mean reinvigorating the Doha Round because it has a lot of political baggage," said Jeffrey Bergstrand, professor of finance at the University of Notre Dame.
  50. O. Carter Snead Professor of Law, William P. and Hazel

    B. White Director of the Center for Ethics and Culture Gosnell Case Fuels Bitter US Abortion Debate The Gosnell case could serve as a fulcrum for more dialogue about abortion, said O. Carter Snead, a University of Notre Dame bioethicist and law professor.
  51. Robert Schmuhl Walter H. Annenberg- Edmund P. Joyce Professor of

    American Studies and Journalism WHEN Barack Obama arrives in Belfast next month prior to the G8 summit in Fermanagh, it's likely he'll still be nursing serious presidential wounds he's suffered during the past few days in Washington. …Robert Schmuhl is Professor of American Studies at the University of Notre Dame
  52. Kathleen Cummings Associate Professor of American Studies Director, Cushwa Center

    for the Study of American Catholicism “It’s just a change in tone, but a change in tone can go a long way,” said Kathleen Sprows Cummings, director of the Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism at the University of Notre Dame. It’s nice “when you’re not hearing constantly about the issues American Catholics have the hardest time with,” she said.
  53. Lloyd Hitoshi Mayer Professor of Law As the Notre Dame

    law professor Lloyd Mayer told the Christian Science Monitor this week: “What has been missed in the outrage is the recognition that this problem arose from much deeper sources than the poor judgment or possible partisan bias of a handful of I.R.S. employees.”
  54. John McGreevy, dean of the University of Notre Dame's College

    of Arts and Letters, called the choice remarkable, echoing Garanzini's surprise. "Jesuits traditionally were discouraged from becoming ... bishops. And they themselves didn't want to become bishops, usually," said McGreevy, who is working on a book about 19th century Jesuits. "But there were exceptions over time, and he's obviously one of them." John McGreevy Professor of History and I.A. O'Shaughnessy Dean of the College of Arts and Letters
  55. Mary Ellen O’Connell Short Professor of Law Mary Ellen O'Connell,

    professor of international law at the University of Notre Dame, told CBSNews.com that as U.S. combat troops prepare to leave Afghanistan next year, it's time for a complete change of course.
  56. Brian Proffitt Adjunct Instructor "Tumblr does not insist on knowing

    the real identities for users, and some of the Tumblr content is very adult-oriented, both features that advertisers would find repellant," said Brian Proffitt, an adjunct instructor of management at the University of Notre Dame.

    Peace Studies And we pick up the debate now with Kori Schake, a research fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institute and professor at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and David Cortright, director of policy studies at the University of Notre Dame's Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies.
  58. Timothy Judge Franklin D. Schurz Professor of Management “We find

    that unattractive individuals are more likely the subject of rude, uncivil and even cruel treatment by their coworkers. And, not only do we, as a society, perceive attractive and unattractive coworkers differently, we act on those perceptions in ways that are hurtful,” said study co-author Timothy Judge, professor of management at the University of Notre Dame‘s Mendoza College of Business.
  59. Ricardo Ramirez Associate Professor of American Politics “It’s anybody’s guess

    to what’s going to happen in terms of sequence,” says Ricardo Ramirez, professor of political science at Notre Dame University. “House Republicans will have their own bill, the question is, is there enough interest in the Senate bill?”
  60. Agustin Fuentes Professor of Anthropology I am occasionally racist— and

    so is most everyone in the USA. Even if we don't think we are. Race is all around us, often in ways we often don’t realize. We can be less racist, and even move away from racism, but it takes a bit of work and some courage. ...Agustín Fuentes, Ph.D, is a professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Notre Dame.
  61. Abigail Wozniak Associate Professor of Economics According to calculations by

    economists Raven Molloy and Christopher Smith of the Federal Reserve and Abigail Wozniak of the University of Notre Dame, the interstate migration rate in 2011 was 53 percent below its 1948-1971 average, while the rates of moving between counties within the same state and of moving within the same county fell 44 and 36 percent, respectively, over the same period. Why Are Americans Moving Less? Will It Hurt The US Job Market And The US Economy?
  62. Guillermo Trejo Associate Professor of Comparative Politics Brazil president Dilma

    Roussef meets core protest group "Brazil will see several waves of protests,'' said Guillermo Trejo, a professor at the U.S.-based University of Notre Dame whose research focuses on social protests in Latin America. "This cycle will decline, and it'll likely return to episodic protests once the media attention of the Confederations Cup goes away.''
  63. Gerald Haeffel Assistant Professor of Psychology At the University of

    Notre Dame, psychologist Gerald Haeffel has recently obtained results from a natural experiment that unfolds every year at the university.
  64. But there actually is consensus on one of the most

    important issues. Paul Schultz, director of the Center for the Study of Financial Regulation at the University of Notre Dame, led a project that brought together scholars of financial regulation from the left, the right and the center to figure out what caused the financial crisis and how to prevent a sequel. They couldn’t agree on anything, he told me. But a great majority favored higher equity requirements, which is bankerspeak for the notion that banks shouldn’t be allowed to borrow so much. Paul Schultz John W. and Maude Clarke Professor of Finance
  65. Partisanship has meant heightened unrest, said Rory McVeigh, director of

    the Center for the Study of Social Movements at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. “There’s been quite a bit of frustration with stalemates in politics and things not being done,” he said. “That helps encourage people to take it to the streets.” Rory McVeigh Chair, Department of Sociology
  66. Jennifer Mason McAward Associate Professor of Law Even with no

    sweeping ruling, the court sent a pointed reminder to judges that they must "actively and skeptically review government programs that allocate benefits or burdens according to race," said Jennifer Mason McAward, a law professor at Notre Dame Law School who once clerked for O'Connor.
  67. Gregory Crawford Dean of the College of Science Meet Greg

    Crawford, Dean of Science at Notre Dame. In an effort to raise awareness and find a cure for Niemann-Pick Type C Disease, Crawford is cycling 3,500 miles from Los Angeles to Baltimore. This is the fourth such ride on this quest, and Crawford will total more than 11,200 miles once he's done.
  68. Guillermo Trejo Associate Professor of Comparative Politics Brazil’s revolutionaries reluctantly

    find themselves in spotlight, ponder future of movement Doing that, however, will mean becoming an actual movement capable of expanding beyond its single-issue base, said Guillermo Trejo, a professor at the University of Notre Dame in the U.S. whose research focuses on social protests in Latin America.
  69. Professor James J. McKenna, director of the Mother- Baby Behavioral

    Sleep Laboratory at the University of Notre Dame and the world’s leading authority on co- sleeping, found that moms who bed-shared aroused 30 percent more frequently so if the baby were to stop breathing, “mothers are going to sense something is going on,” Sears said.

  73. James S. O'Rourke Professor of Management "It's unclear whether the

    USPS has the legislative authority to take such actions on its own, but the alternative is the status quo until it is completely cash starved," James O'Rourke, a professor of management at the University of Notre Dame, told the Associated Press.
  74. R. Scott Appleby Professor of History John M. Regan Jr.

    Director, Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies "Pope Francis has already been very clear about his priority for the poor, the marginalized, the suffering and the oppressed of the world," said Scott Appleby, director of the University of Notre Dame's Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies. "His focus [in the trip to the Holy Land] will be on the human toll of the conflict."
  75. Alexandra F. Corning, a research associate professor in psychology at

    the University of Notre Dame, wondered whether a woman’s size would affect her likability when she engaged in fat talk. As an online experiment, Dr. Corning showed 139 undergraduates photos of two thin and two overweight women, each making either a positive or negative remark about her body. Alexandra Corning Research Associate Professor
  76. Brian Proffitt Adjunct Instructor Brian Profitt, a technology expert and

    adjunct instructor of management at the University of Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business, said the real question is whether the Samsung watch "will make the purchase of yet-another smart device worth it."
  77. The government “doesn’t bring that many cases, so this does

    set a marker,” said Joseph Bauer, a law professor at the University of Notre Dame. “It says that if you engage in unlawful behavior, the DOJ may go after you. Apple may not be a big player in the e-books market, but they are big in a lot of other areas.” Joseph Bauer Professor of Law

  80. Elizabeth McClintock Assistant Professor of Sociology Even single men in

    these careers spend more hours cooking and cleaning, said Elizabeth Aura McClintock, PhD, an assistant professor of sociology at the University of Notre Dame who studies modern romance and its effects on careers.
  81. Different critics draw the lines in different places. Mary Ellen

    O’Connell, a law professor at the University of Notre Dame, is a determined and eloquent critic of drone strikes. She believes that while strikes in well-defined battle spaces like Iraq and Afghanistan are justified, and can limit civilian deaths, strikes in Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, and other places amount to “extrajudicial killing,” no matter who the targets are. Such killings are outside the boundary of armed conflict, she says, and hence violate international law. Mary Ellen O’Connell Short Professor of Law
  82. Gregory Crawford Dean of the College of Science Dean Gregory

    Crawford, a physics professor at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind., counsels many STEM students wrestling with their majors. He notices many undergraduates drop STEM because of weakness in introductory mathematics or chemistry. College STEM majors opting out for other degrees
  83. The battle in Washington over the budget is not mere

    partisan squabbling. What we are debating is the perennial argument between right and left: Do we as a society prefer to leave the well-being of our people to the indifference of the market economy, or do we believe that government also has an important role to play? Editor's note: Benjamin Radcliff is a professor of political science at the University of Notre Dame. He is author of the book "The Political Economy of Human Happiness." Benjamin Radcliff Professor of Political Science
  84. Maurizio Albahari, assistant professor of anthropology at the University of

    Notre Dame, said it was time for Europe to enact new policies rather than simply shed tears for those who died -- or blame the traffickers. Maurizio Albahari Assistant Professor of Anthropology
  85. Duncan Stroik Professor of Architecture Changing faiths at the Crystal

    Cathedral "The exterior will always be the Crystal Cathedral, at least for a while," said Duncan Stroik, a professor of architecture at Notre Dame and editor of the publication Sacred Architecture Journal. "Catholic on the inside, but kind of Protestant on the outside."
  86. Candida Moss Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity Last

    week there was a frenzy about an “angel” (actually a priest) that prayed with a car crash victim in Missouri, but are angels really who you want to help you? Professor Candida Moss on the scary way of angels in the Bible. The Truth About Angels in the Bible
  87. Timothy Loughran C. R. Smith Professor of Finance "The market

    is signaling that it is very receptive again to these young, high-growth social media Internet companies," Tim Loughran, finance professor at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, told the Associated Press, adding that Twitter's success indicates that profitability is irrelevant.

  90. Duncan Stroik Professor of Architecture Private spaces in the home

    for prayer have been around in the U.S. since the colonial period but went out of style in the 1960s, when communal worship became more popular, says Duncan Stroik, professor of architecture at the University of Notre Dame who studies sacred spaces. In the past 10 to 15 years, luxury homes, in particular, have seen a resurgence in private prayer spaces. "What we're seeing is some people who believe in prayer are willing to spend significant money to have a beautiful room dedicated to that in their house," he says.

  95. The fingerprint access makes KeyMe much safer than a password

    or PIN would, Schlesinger says. Researchers have demonstrated before that they are able to spoof fingerprint scanners. A safer login could use scans from two fingers or an iris scan, says Kevin Bowyer, chair of the computer science department at the University of Notre Dame.

    they are risking their lives, but it is a rational decision," said Maurizio Albahari, assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Notre Dame. "Because they know for a fact they will be facing death or persecution at home — whatever remains of their home, or assuming there is a home in the first place."
  99. Nobel Peace Prize decision criticized Max Foster talks to Peter

    Wallensteen about criticism of the Nobel Peace Prize decision. “There are about 100 peace prizes and this is the one that we talk about so it definitely has special status.

  101. No human individual, even sometimes the most wicked, is wicked

    from top to bottom. I think what we frequently find appealing about figures like Don Giovanni and the rest is their struggle between goodness and evil and we can relate to their being drawn to evil.

  102. Candida Moss Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity By

    Candida Moss Over the past few weeks there has been a growing sense among some Christian groups that events in Syria herald the Apocalypse. A prophecy in Isaiah 17 describes the imminent and absolute destruction of Damascus, the capital of Syria. Christian radio hosts, organizations, blogs, and authors have come forward to testify that that we live in the end times. The story has received coverage on Fox News, in USA Today, and in TIME.

  103. Michael Desch Professor of Political Science University of Notre Dame

    political science professor Michael Desch, an expert on international security and American foreign and defense policies, says the ambivalence is epitomized by Secretary of State Henry L.

  105. U.S. Catholics hopeful, but wary, of new Pope Francis And

    Francis has strength that will matter in the USA, says R. Scott Appleby, a history professor at the University of Notre Dame. Francis also has the administrative talent to bring the creaking, scandal-plagued bureaucracy of the global church, the curia, into order. Appleby called Francis "a model of personal holiness" who may inspire believers worldwide. R. Scott Appleby Professor of History John M.

  106. Allert Brown-Gort Faculty Fellow, Kellogg Institute for International Studies "It's

    natural that people in a federal organization are going to take this chance to prove how important they are to the public, especially as that goal is aligned with a White House trying to raise the ante" over the spending cuts, says Allert Brown-Gort, an immigration expert at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana.

    Washington, especially on the Mall, has been the subject of some sort of protest or dissent," says Erika Doss, a professor of American studies at the University of Notre Dame and the author of Memorial Mania: Public Feeling in America. "People don't like its location, its style, its cost— there are all sorts of reasons."
  108. Brian Proffitt Adjunct Instructor Those ambitions are likely a key

    reason Google scooped up Waze, said University of Notre Dame management professor Brian Profitt, who specializes in technology issues. "If Facebook had gotten Waze, they clearly would do something in the mobile market with it," Proffitt said. "Getting Waze is like a billion- dollar remedy to a potential headache for Google."

    Daniel Myers, a sociology professor at the University of Notre Dame, points out what should be obvious: If there's an opportunity for people to gather in big groups following the verdict, there's a chance for things to get out of hand. And don't let it be hot, because people go outside when temperatures are hot.
  114. My title is “International Law and Drone Strikes Beyond Conflict

    Zones” but my point today is to clear up the mounting myths that it is lawful to kill people with the use of military force represented by the drone which fires the hellfire missile, a weapon only lawful on a battlefield under international law.

  115. Thomas F. X. Noble Professor "On issues like abortion or

    gay marriage, I don't think it's reasonable to expect any changes," from the new pope, historian Thomas Noble of the University of Notre Dame told LiveScience. "These are not perceived as scientific issues, they are perceived as moral issues."
  116. Mark Noll Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History Mark Noll,

    a scholar of evangelical history at the University of Notre Dame, argued it would be wrong to view the papacy as weakened because of the challenges before the church. Given the splits within Protestantism and among secular-minded people, few leaders have the platform a pope does.

    might be considered a counteroffensive, aimed at giving Catholic schools in some of the nation’s poorest neighborhoods and regions the teachers they need—and developing new institutions to revivify the system broadly.

  121. Tailgating Gets Online Playbooks Lately, tailgating has attracted academic, as

    well as commercial, attention.

  123. Christian Smith William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of Sociology We

    have a long way to go to get the work force pulling in the right direction, as research by a team led by the University of Notre Dame's Christian Smith has shown.

  124. Timothy Loughran C. R. Smith Professor of Finance "The market

    is signaling that it is very receptive again to these young, high-growth social media Internet companies," says Tim Loughran, finance professor at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. Twitter's successful IPO even proved that it's irrelevant whether companies are profitable, he says.
