Mascot Selection Steering Committee views graphics
ASU's Mascot Selection Steering Committee met for two hours Friday with Jamie Skiles of Phoenix Design Works and viewed draft designs and imagery as part of the next steps in selecting a new mascot. After viewing Skiles' work, the committee narrowed the concepts for consideration to imagery that will incorporate a train theme, such as the A-Train or the Express, the Red Wolves, and the Ridge Riders. Skiles will continue to explore any possible alternatives. At the committee’s next scheduled meeting, set for Wednesday, Jan. 30, Skiles will return with additional design options for consideration by the group. For more information, see the NewsPage release.

Dr. Guha publishes article in international journal
Dr. Gauri Guha, Economics, recently published an article, "A Concurrent Evaluation of Trends in Commodity Exports, Economic Growth, and Environmental Quality in the United States," in this month's issue of the International Business and Economic Research Journal. Guha's article examines the dual consequences of recent U.S. exports, noting that economic growth is a logical motivation for and an empirically determinable outcome of increasing exports. The article also notes, however, that there are corresponding losses in environmental resources.
