HEADLINERS

Koleman Strumpf

A MARKET-PREDICTED PRESIDENT:

Koleman Strumpf, professor of business, recently appeared on CNN's "This Week in Politics" to discuss the history of predictive markets and the merits of this method for choosing and projecting presidential candidates. "The markets have a really tremendous track record dating back to the early 20th century," Strumpf said. "So in 1904, the New York Times reported on the front page what was going on at the Wall Street betting markets since no Gallup Poll existed at that time."

HOUSEWORK EQUITY:

Men still aren't completely pulling their weight when it comes to housework and child care, but they're getting better, according to a recent report by the Council on Contemporary Families. Shirley Hill, professor of sociology and a collaborator with the council, was quoted in a recent Associated Press story about the study. "There's a generational shift that's quite strong," Hill said. "The younger set of dads have their own expectations about themselves as to being helpful and participatory. They haven't quite gotten to equality in any sense that a women would say, 'Wow, that's equal,' but they've gotten so much farther down the road."
