Paul Arciero, professor of health and exercise sciences, has had a study selected for publication in a leading nutrition publication, the prestigious Obesity Journal. Titled “Increased protein intake and meal frequency reduces abdominal fat during energy balance and energy deficit,” the study has Arciero as primary author and Trustee Jonathan Brestoff ’08 as a co-author, along with Michael J. Ormsbee, Christopher L. Gentile, Bradley C. Nindl, and Mazwell Ruby. The study is one of the first to confirm that the quality and timing of food ingestion has the greatest effect on improving health.

Pola Baytelman, distinguished artist-in-residence, Department of Music, has a new recording, Celebration of the New, released April 1 by Albany Records. Baytelman performs works for piano by American composers Joseph Fennimore, George Crumb and Lowell Liebermann. She is joined by flutist Jan Vinci in Katherine Hoover's Medieval Suite. Albany Times Union critic Joseph Dalton praised Baytelman’s “lively, elegant style,” and the “crisp recording fidelity, thanks to the fine work of producer and engineer Adams Abeshouse and the pleasing acoustics of the venue, the Ladd Concert Hall in Skidmore’s Zankel Music Center.”
