CNN: Did you get phubbed by your boss?

Oct. 6, 2015
Opinion piece about “phubbing” — phone snubbing — by James A. Roberts, Ph.D., The Ben H. Williams Professor of Marketing in Baylor’s Hankamer School of Business. Roberts and Meredith David, Ph.D., assistant professor of marketing, did a study about “partner phubbing,” which confirmed that paying too much attention to cellphones is damaging romantic relationships and leading to higher levels of depression. In this article, Roberts, author of “Too Much of a Good Thing: Are You Addicted to Your Smartphone?” suggests that “boss phubbing” — being snubbed by a supervisor whose attention is diverted to a cellphone — is wreaking havoc on workplace relationships and productivity. (Eric Eckert, Baylor Media Communications specialist, is pitching Roberts’ research nationally. He covers faculty and research in the Hankamer School of Business.)

First Things: The Crisis In International Religious Freedom

Oct. 6, 2015
Essay by David Corey, Ph.D., associate professor of political philosophy in Baylor’s College of Arts & Sciences, who writes about two recent lectures at Baylor on religious persecution and lack of American concern given by former congressman Frank Wolf, now The Jerry and Susie Wilson Chair of Religious Freedom at Baylor, and Princeton Professor Robert P. George, who currently serves as the Chair of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom. “If Americans do not care about the state of religious liberty around the world, neither will their government, nor will the leaders of other nations,” Corey writes. “Americans have historically been the most outspoken proponents of religious liberty in modern history. Should we fall silent now, either out of ignorance or apathy, the effects will be disastrous.”
