How scientists (including an SMU Dedman College seismologist) monitor North Korea’s nuclear tests

Dallas Morning News Originally Posted: September 8, 2017 At 9:30 p.m. Central time last Saturday, detectors around the world picked up signs of a massive explosion in the vicinity of North Korea's nuclear test site. The country claimed, for the second time in less than two years, that it had successfully detonated a hydrogen bomb, a weapon far more powerful than the bombs dropped on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War II. The last time North Korea said it had a hydrogen bomb, in January 2016, experts quickly dismissed its claim. This time, some say it's a possibility. "The magnitude of this event is bigger than any U.S. or Russian test since the early '70s," said Brian Stump, a seismologist at Southern Methodist University, which operates [...]

Dreamers Look to Congress to Keep Them in America

CBN News Originally posted: September 6, 2017 Jose Santoyo, an SMU Human Rights alumnus, is quoted in this article. WASHINGTON – The ball is now in Congress' court for Deferred Action Childhood Arrivals or DACA.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday  that the Trump administration plans to end the Obama era program. It protects hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation and provides them with social security numbers so they can go to school and work. The administration is giving Congress six months to pass a legislative fix before they stop renewing permits. Thousands of DACA recipients, like Jose Santoyo, are counting on Congress to meet that deadline because their futures are now uncertain. "In social spaces, you always made to feel you belong," [...]
