It once was common in America for three or more generations to live together. Now, the economy, debt and unemployment are causing many families to live under one roof once again. Experts say multi-generational households have special challenges and benefits. We explore this with Dr. Vicky Phares, area director of USF's Clinical Psychology program; Karen Blanden, licensed marriage and family therapist; and Lillian Lima, social analyst. We discuss the evolution of this lifestyle, analyze the benefits versus the consequences and question whether these households actually “work.” This program was produced by Lauren Webber and the USF Advanced Production and Direction class, under the guidance of Professor Kristin Ruyle. Their companion television documentary on multi-generational households is scheduled to air on WUSF-TV in January.

This week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7 pays a visit to the Crisis Center and talks to some of the students about some of the unbelievable things they’ve experienced.

Green Algae coats rocks in the Chassahowitzka Spring
The state was sued three years ago by environmental groups, who say too many nutrients are flowing into rivers and lakes, creating green outbreaks in what used to be clear waters. That lawsuit resulted in the EPA determining the state violated the Clean Water Act. But some business and agriculture groups have balked, saying it would cost them millions.

Susan MacManus, USF Distinguished Professor of Political Science, talks about the importance of the “hands-on” Florida Congressional redistricting project, how work like this is preparing students for future careers in politics, and how politically active students have become over the past few decades.

Political Science/Criminology seniors Philip Montesi and Jon Ball say, despite their group having two Democratic leaning members and two Republican leaning ones, partisanship didn’t play a role in their redistricting plan.

General Business Administration senior Jorge Garcia and Political Science Senior Ashley Chapman say that political leanings didn’t matter to their group either. They also talk about how tough it is to fairly divide a diverse state like Florida.

The Occupy Wall Street movement has spread south to Florida. But what impact will the protests have here? To get a “big picture” perspective on the Occupy Wall Street protests and how they’re playing out in Florida, we speak with Seth McKee, who leads the department of history and politics at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. He tells WUSF’s Scott Finn that these protests are especially unusual for Florida. This is a movement led largely by young people, so WUSF’s Yoselis Ramos asks students at the University of South Florida in Tampa about their opinions of Occupy Wall Street. And we speak with Sean Snaith, director of the University of Central Florida's Institute for Economic Competitiveness, about income inequality in Florida.
