Making the News

Indian media in the U.S. and abroad covered a recent trip to India by a UCSC delegation. Chancellor Greenwood, who led the delegation, was the focus of a number of stories as a result of her address to the Indian Science Congress, held in Hyderabad. Greenwood's speech focused on issues concerning scientific collaboration between India and UC, was covered by Hyderabad's Indian Express and the Hindu Business Line, and sparked a feature story a few days later in the Indian Express of New Delhi. India West, a U.S.-based newspaper, also covered the news of the delegation's trip.

Research physicist Michael Riordan has received extensive media attention for his book on the history of the transistor and the microchip, Crystal Fire: The Birth of the Information Age (coauthored with Lillian Hoddeson). An article he wrote on the invention of the transistor appeared on the front page of the Horizon section of the Washington Post, and he was interviewed on NPR's Talk of the Nation/Science Friday and Morning Edition programs. Riordan was also quoted extensively in a San Francisco Examiner story on the 50th anniversary of the invention of the transistor.

Psychology's Roland Tharp appeared on the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer last fall, discussing bilingual education.

Brent Haddad of environmental studies was quoted in a Salinas Californian article about California's planned electricity deregulation.
