Shortage: Business Schools Seek Professors
"Sooner or later, the price factor will kick in and more people
will view becoming a business-school professor as quite attractive,"
says Mark Zupan, dean of the Simon School, in a report about recruiting
business professionals into the teaching field. "But that hasn't
happened yet." (Subscription required.)
Million Can't Sleep, Can't Sit With Restless Legs Syndrome
Irene Richard, associate professor of neurology, comments on drug treatments
for restless legs syndrome. "When patients come in asking about
the treatment, doctors need to know that this is usually not a simple,
single-pill solution, despite what they've seen on TV."

Should New Citizens Know about Our Country?
Richard Niemi, professor of political science, discusses a new citizenship
test being piloted by the U.S. Office of Citizenship and Immigration
Services. "It's easy to say that questions should not be so simple,
but designing other questions, especially of the conceptual variety,
is not easy."
NCAA Needs More Black Coaches
"NCAA president Myles Brand asked member schools to offer more
opportunities to minorities when hiring coaches and administrators and
wants them to do a better job educating athletes about sportsmanship.
Speaking at the opening of the NCAA's annual convention, Brand admonished
Football Bowl Subdivision—formerly Division I-A schools—for
not aggressively pursuing black football coaches. Only seven of the
119 programs have black head coaches." (Brand earned his doctorate
in philosophy at Rochester in 1967.)
