Hamilton College Sociology Professor Dennis Gilbert, who conducted a Muslim America Poll this spring says "American Muslims are one of our most successful immigrant groups.

Dunsmore Advises Parents, “Turn off the TV” for 9/11 Anniversary
The anniversary of September 11 is only days away and media coverage is intensifying. Julie Dunsmore, a developmental psychologist at Hamilton College, advises parents, “Turn the television off. Don’t let your kids watch footage from September 11.” She explains, “Children, particularly young children, can’t tell it’s footage from a year ago, not something that’s currently happening.” In her study of children following the events of September 11, Dunsmore found that children who watched television footage were less able to cope with what happened and had more negative reactions to the attacks.

President Tobin Letter to Editor Published in USA Today
A letter to the editor by Hamilton College President Eugene M. Tobin concerning the length of college sports seasons, was published in USA Today on Thursday, Sept. 5.

Eugene Domack
Eugene Domack Quoted in Science magazine
Professor of Geology Eugene Domack is quoted in a Science magazine article (August 20, 2002) on the demise of the Antarctic Peninsula’s ice shelves, in particular the Larsen B ice shelf. In 1999, Domack’s team, working on the U.S. National Science Foundation’s Nathaniel B. Palmer collected ice cores in waters where a section of the Larsen B broke off. Based on the age of the glacial till under Larsen A, said Domack, “the erstwhile Larsen B was at least 11,000 years old, implying that the breakup [of the ice shelf] is now extending farther south than ever before in the Holocene.” These findings suggest that ice shelves break up faster than anyone thought before, and global warming may be an important factor in this region.

Owen Interviewed for Journal News Article About Federal Reserve
Assistant Professor of Economics Ann Owen was interviewed for a Journal News article (9/3/02) about the Federal Reserve's actions since the Sept. 11 attacks. Owen discussed this year's battered equity markets, and noted that if they're looking to the Fed to save them by lowering interest rates further they may be looking in the wrong place. She said the Fed's obligation is to stablize prices and moderate rates since it's difficult for businesses to plan in the long-term without them. "It's not a question of 'Should they be expansionary,?'" Owen said. "It's a question of, 'Should they be more expansionary?'" Owen is a former Federal Reserve economist. More ...
Douglas Raybeck
Raybeck Quoted in the Boston Herald
Professor of Anthropology Douglas Raybeck was quoted in the Boston Herald in a September 11 anniversary article. Raybeck said, "The psyche that recovers from these wounds of a year ago will be more mature, more sensitive, and profoundly more pessimistic than the psyche which has, for generations, characterized the United States...We will become closer to the world at large and less insensitive to its pain," he said. "The result may well be an even grander nation. But globally, at any rate, the tragedy of 9-11 should result in a more cautious nation, too." More ...
