Jan. 14, 2019
Thomas S. Kidd, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of History and The James Vardaman Endowed Professor of History in Baylor’s College of Arts & Sciences, is quoted in this article about the number of self-identified Protestant Christians who make up the largest religious group in Congress. “To me, this suggests that Christian denominations – especially mainline Protestants – still hold a lot of cultural sway in America, in spite of the massive media coverage given to the unaffiliated, or ‘nones,’ over the past decade,” said Kidd, who also serves as associate director of the Baylor Institute for Studies of Religion.

BrightSurf: Mosquito known to transmit malaria has been detected in Ethiopia for the first time

Jan. 16, 2019
A type of mosquito that transmits malaria has been detected in Ethiopia for the first time, and the discovery has implications for putting more people at risk for malaria in new regions, according to research by Tamar Carter, Ph.D., assistant professor of tropical disease biology in Baylor's College of Arts & Sciences. The study is published in the international journal Acta Tropica. Further research is needed to confirm that the mosquito — Anopheles stephensi — carries malaria parasites in Ethiopia, Carter said. The mosquitoes tend to feed indoors, and such malaria control strategies as insecticide-treated bed nets and indoor insecticide spraying may be needed. (This article was written by Brad Holbrook, online specialist of electronic marketing in Baylor’s Division of Marketing and Communications. Terry Goodrich, assistant director of Baylor Media and Public Relations, is pitching the story nationally.)
