Rochester in the News
Wall Street Journal (Nov. 9)
Some Don’t Live to Earn, but Earn to Live
Richard Ryan, professor of psychology, psychiatry, and education, studies human motivation and how it affects psychological well-being. His work has shown that people who pursue extrinsic goals, such as money, image and fame, are less happy than those who focus on goals that they define for themselves, irrespective of what society may say. The happier ones have decoupled their own sense of self-worth from material possessions or recognition.

Universe Today (Nov. 8)
Book Review: About Time: Cosmology and Culture in the Twilight of the Big Bang
“When introducing his book About Time: Cosmology and Culture at the Twilight of the Big Bang, author Adam Frank tells us that he is setting out to ‘unfold the grandest conception of the universe we human beings have been able to imagine and explore. At the same time embracing our most intimate and most personal experience of the world—the very frame of human life.’” Frank is professor of astrophysics and a regular contributor to Discover and Astronomy magazines, and is the cofounder of National Public Radio’s  “13:7 Cosmos & Culture” blog.
