UMBC "Talking Heads" Suggest 2009 Resolutions for the World

Recently, the UMBC News team launched the “Talking Heads” blog, a community of faculty experts using text and video to post their views on current events.

The blog is becoming a dynamic community discussion and a destination for members of the media seeking new sources.

The year 2009 promises to be a milestone as world leaders face intertwined challenges for the global economy, sustainability and security.

These challenges also present opportunities for UMBC experts to share their ideas.

As the New Year began, the UMBC News team sought out faculty across disciplines to address these global issues in the form of a resolution. We asked our experts to answer the short question:

"In 2009, the world should resolve to _____________.”

From sustainable hamburgers to cleaner cars and beyond, the resulting video- and text-blog posts help show the campus community and those new to UMBC that our faculty members have a broad range of expertise and a passion for talking about complex issues that impact our society.

Above all, this is the start of a conversation. Please subscribe to our news feed or bookmark this page and join us throughout 2009 as we grow the depth and range of expert commentary at “Talking Heads.”
