Campus: CSU, Hayward -- May 10, 2001
International Business Journalists To Have
'Adventures In Economics'
Twenty-four business journalists from Hong Kong, Jerusalem, New Delhi,
Montreal and more than a dozen American cities have been selected for
a one-week fellowship in economics that begins May 20 at California
State University, Hayward.
The "Adventures in Economics" fellowship is hosted by the
Cal State Hayward Center for Economic Education and the university's
Office of Public Affairs, and is co-sponsored by the Council for Advancement
and Support of Education.
"Reporters and editors who cover business, technology, education
and politics will benefit from this fellowship in one of the most important
economic regions of the world," said Jane Lopus, CSUH economics
professor and director of the Center for Economic Education.
Principal presenters will be professors from the university's School
of Business and Economics.
The journalists will have discussions with corporate leaders during
visits to major area firms such as Intel Corp. and Wente Winery. The
schedule includes a visit to the Federal Reserve Bank in San Francisco,
meetings with Silicon Valley corporate leaders, and a discussion of
the economics of sport when the fellows meet with San Francisco Giants
Executive Vice President Larry Baer at Pacific Bell Park.
Fellows will also meet with high school student winners of the Center
for Economic Education Stock Market Simulation contest that involves
thousands of economics students.

And unfortunately for new mountain dwellers, Parker says that even as
they get more adjusted to the elevation, they will not be able to match
what they were able to do at sea level. Their performance may get better,
but their maximal exercise capacity won't increase.
