    Science informs public understanding on everything from climate change to cancer treatments to child development. But how does it do so, and who determines what the public learns? Does science infiltrate public awareness from the work of science journalists reporting on new discoveries in places like the New York Times or the BBC? Or from the efforts of […]

    Media Coverage Isn’t as Bad as You Might Think

    It is entirely reasonable to believe that media coverage is systematically flawed. In some ways, it is! Too much attention is paid to violent crime (Altheide 1997; Soroka 2014). Tweets are increasingly presented as representative public opinion (McGregor 2019).

    Bullies and the 2020 Election

    I don’t know who will win the 2020 presidential race, but I do know who will lose: the biggest bully on the block since Billy Franklin beat-up Joey Tarnower in the sixth-grade and ran-off with his lunch money.  The American people, I argue, are sick of political bullying and they’re going to put a stop […]

    Let’s Keep it Simple: Introducing the ICE Model

    I have worked within the wireless communications R&D industry for close to 20 years now and, in my experience, one consistent ingredient that has often escaped the recipe of so many consumer electronic products is simplicity.  This facet alone should be instilled, force-fed and, to be honest, beaten into innovators, developers, manufacturers or whomever decides […]
