Are you a phubber? A UGA study focused on the phenomenon of so-called phone snubbing,or phubbing, which is the act of people ignoring their friends in a gathering and paying attention to their phones. Juhyung Sun is a doctoral student at the University of Oklahoma and received her master’s degree at the University of Georgia. She studied why people use their phones while in face-to-face situations.

“I focused on friendship because friendship is more like, one of the most comfortable relationship ties so it is kind of okay behavior to use the phone,” according to Sun.

In the animal kingdom, pigs sometimes get a bad rap. We frequently use insults such as “filthy as a pig” in our daily conversations. But, perhaps we should change this to “helpful as a pig,” as pigs might play a critical role in helping to research Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s Disease, and chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). University of Georgia Regenerative Bioscience Center researchers Franklin West and Qun Zhao join the program to discuss their work with Chris Shupe.
