Hello, you’re with Media and Communications for this week’s media wrap.
• Order in The Chronicle.
Dr Andrew Hemming (School of Law and Justice) provided expert quotes for an article about court sentencing and the parole process. Certainly made us all rise.
• From cotton fields to University leader.
Professor Craig Baillie’s reputation as leader in the *field* was certainly on display in Grain Central and The Chronicle as he was officially announced as the Head of School and Dean of our new School of Agriculture and Environmental Science.
• He’s our (green energy!) superhero.
Associate Professor Andreas Helwig’s energy levels were certainly up – taking part in nine media interviews about power supply and outages. Features on WIN News and ABC Southern Queensland (just to name a few!).
• Blissin’ out.
Dr Edward Bliss was racing across the airwaves – discussing how 100 minutes of physical activity could lower your risk of developing dementia. That’s something we won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
• Shooting (international) hoops!
Local Ipswich News got the courtside scoop about sports science researcher Associate Professor Stephen Bird who has been recognised by the New Zealand Government for his work with their national women’s basketball team.
• Should Queensland add an extra year of schooling?
Dr Alice Brown and Dr Michelle Turner had all the eyes on the headlines (or ears on the airwaves!) for their expert commentary on New South Wales’s and Victoria’s overhaul in early education. You can read more via The Courier-Mail.
We’ll have more USQNews, this time next week.
