UNISUSA Annual Zombie Run

The University of Northern Iowa Supporters of the United States Army (UNISUSA) is hosting a 5K "Zombie Run". The run will assist UNISUSA in their efforts to support UNI ROTC cadets by providing them with funds to compete in events such as range challenge, the German Armed Forces Proficiency Badge and field training exercises. The run is a fun course through campus where participants will encounter zombies who will chase them down. Each participant will begin the race with two balloons; the zombies will attempt to pop your balloons... WILL YOU SURVIVE?

Graduate College Brown Bag Lecture: "A Big Data Approach to Measuring News Media Reliance on the Press Release"

Sergey Golitsynskiy, assistant professor, Communication Studies will speak on A Big Data Approach to Measuring News Media Reliance on the Press Release.”  Golitsynskiy will discuss the results of two studies addressing the use of public relations content in news media, an issue that has been prominent in journalism scholarship for at least a century, yet has not been investigated sufficiently due to methodological challenges. Golitsynskiy will share his experience using a computational approach to tackle such challenges by constructing and analyzing a very large data set of press releases and relevant news coverage. His results suggest that news media delivers reasonably impartial content, which contradicts opinions often voiced in journalism literature. However, the use of computation also lead to a discovery of a "smoking gun" – a striking example of PR influence on the media.
