OSU sociologist named APA Fellow
Riley E. Dunlap, Regents Professor of Sociology at OSU, has been elected a Fellow of the American Psychological Association in recognition of his scholarship on environmental attitudes, beliefs and values. For more than three decades, Dunlap has examined citizen concern for environmental quality. He and his collaborators have published several highly cited articles including the “New Ecological Paradigm Scale,” which has become the most widely used measure of environmental concern in the world. In addition to this honor, happy birthday, Dr. Dunlap!  

Wellness tip: Pumpkin packs a powerful nutritional punch
Autumn is a great time to discover the versatility, flavor and nutritional benefit of pumpkin. Often the star ingredient in many sweet delights, such as pie and custard, pumpkin can also make a savory side dish.  So don’t throw away your carvings; instead, roast, sauté, steam or mash…and enjoy. You’ll get a good supply of vitamin A, beta-carotene, vitamin C, fiber, iron, potassium, and other nutrients. Hint: Small, 2- to 5-pound pumpkins are best for cooking.
