Recent news media coverage involving Webster University community members includes:

Rishe on NBA Sterling Controversy, Potential Clippers Sale

The NBA is embroiled in controversy after a recording surfaced of racist comments by Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling. The league fined Sterling $2.5 million and banned him from the league for life. With that financial impact — including the expectation the league will force Sterling to sell the team — several media outlets turned to analysis from economics professor Patrick Rishe, of Webster University’s George Herbert Walker School of Business & Technology.

Watch Rishe’s Wednesday morning appearance on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” show at this link or embedded above.

In an article by Chris Isidore at CNN Money, Rishe says a Clippers sale could fetch at least $750 million and that a bidding war could quickly take the price to $1 billion or more.

Miller on Evangelical Age in America

Steve Miller, adjunct faculty member in the College of Arts & Sciences Department of History, Politics, and International Relations, had his article, “The Years of the Evangelicals,”  published at The Christian Century. He has a book on this topic, “The Age of Evangelicalism: America’s Born-Again Years,” recently published by Oxford University Press.

Chakaryan, Huang on Stress of First-Responders

Counseling professors Hasmik Chakaryan and Hsin-Hsin Huang were both quoted in a West Newsmagazine article examining the effects of stress on firefighters and other first-responders. Huang’s dissertation focused on returning war veterans and PTSD, and a manuscript based on that research has been accepted by the American Counseling Association’s flagship peer-reviewed journal, the Journal of Counseling and Development.
