INSIGHT
Midterm elections: Emory experts weigh in on what's at stake Nov. 6
With debates over the midterm elections reaching a fever pitch, Emory faculty experts outline the key issues to watch in this year's historic races.

 

IMPACT
Emory Votes: University to provide shuttles to nearby polling places
On Election Day, Emory encourages students, staff and faculty to exercise one of the most foundational rights of citizenship in our democracy: the right to vote.

 

RESEARCH
Schadenfreude sheds light on the darker side of humanity
Schadenfreude, the sense of pleasure people derive from the misfortune of others, is the focus of a new study by Emory psychologists. This common, yet poorly understood, emotion may provide a valuable window into the darker side of humanity.

 

HEALTH
Mapping shear stress can help predict heart attacks
Calculating and mapping how hard the blood's flow is tugging on the coronary artery wall, known as "wall shear stress," could allow cardiologists to predict heart attacks, according to a new paper by Emory professor Habib Samady and colleagues at Emory and Georgia Tech.

CAMPUS
November arts events include dance, music, theater and more
With over 50 arts events scheduled at Emory in November, there is a lot to be thankful for this month. Highlights include multiple performances featuring Emory student dancers, actors and musicians.
