WebMD

Sally White, professor and dean, Lehigh University College of Education, offered advice for making and keeping New Year's resolutions on the top health Web site, WebMD. White, who studies motivation, discussed the importance of understanding what will motivate an individual. "Research in adherence motivation tells us that strategies have to fit individuals' orientation and very different perceptions of what equals success," says White. "The field speaks of task and ego orientation, and nearly 45 studies show women to be more task oriented and men to be more ego oriented."

Fox TV
Jack Lule, professor of journalism and communication, was mentioned by Bill O’Reilly on “The O’Reilly Factor." Lule had given a newspaper interview in which he said shows like O'Reilly's, in which hosts and guests spend the majority of time yelling at and interrupting each other, could not really be considered journalism. They are a product of spectacle rather than journalism, Lule said. Mr. O'Reilly took exception.

Ban Gives Boost to Ephedra Debate

In article on the recent Ephedra ban, Lehigh University football coach Pete Lembo said he educates his players at the start of each season about legal but questionable supplements.

Group Supports Idea Universe Is Designed by God

Michael Behe, professor of biological sciences at Lehigh, spoke at an October symposium sponsored by Science Speaks, an Orlando-area organization of lay people interested in Intelligent Design, a movement driven mostly by Christians eager to use the tools of science to discover what they say are the divinely established foundations of the universe.

Taylor’s Approach is the Right Approach for Lehigh

Lehigh University's athletic administration might want to consider giving head men's basketball coach Billy Taylor a contract extension — and maybe offer to pay his dry cleaning bill.

Lehigh Shows Discipline in Win over Wagner

Lehigh coach Billy Taylor has established himself as a disciplinarian in his first two seasons. And nobody is openly complaining.

On The Job Hunt in 2004

Donna Goldfeder, director of Career Services at Lehigh, was quoted in an article on the present difficulty of finding a job. "A job at one time was literally just a few mouse clicks away," says Goldfeder. "Students found a job by just looking at a few job boards on the Internet. Now they have to be more assertive by digging deeper and networking, by talking to anybody and everybody."

Twenty years after 1984, a year author George Orwell prophesied as dark and without freedom, the United States of America has some of the earmarks of Orwell's vision.
Nikolai Eberhardt, semi-retired from teaching at Lehigh University, recently re-read "1984" for the first time since his undergraduate days in the 1950s in Munich, Germany.
"I came to the conclusion that in those days, I found it too gory, too depressing," Eberhardt said. "So I don't think I got through it."
