Making Headlines

MIT Technology Review“The app enabled research to be conducted in unprecedented ways. The question then became, if you can press a button and participate in research, can you press a button and access care? For Parkinson’s we think the answer is yes.”
—Ray Dorsey, who holds the David M. Levy Professorship in Neurology, in a story about Apple’s emphasis on health care–related apps. Dorsey helped create the mPower app as part of a study on Parkinson’s disease.


Bloomberg View“The world’s largest currency union contains about 1.7 billion people and accounts for more than a third of global economic output. It also may be headed for a breakup—and that’s a risk to which policymakers everywhere should be paying a lot more attention. I’m talking, of course, about the U.S. and China.”
—Narayana Kocherlakota, the Lionel W. McKenzie Professor of Economics, in a column for Bloomberg View.


The Washington Post“Ninety-nine point nine percent of organists make their living at a church job, with some teaching and the occasional concert.”
—David Higgs, chair of the Department of Organ, Sacred Music, and Historical Keyboards at the Eastman School of Music, in an article about bringing organ music to a larger audience.


The Wall Street Journal“It used to be in the U.S. and the U.K. that a producer was basically a salaried employee whose job it was to make sure the company’s studio time was being used wisely. As they became more creative rather than administrative people, producers began to think they needed to work within the structure that artists work under.”
—John Covach, director of the Institute for Popular Music, commenting on the influence of the late Beatles producer George Martin.
