This item from a recent Penn State newsletter mentions some "research" that has been done by the university regarding the "problem" of there being more men than women in the information technology field (of course, there is no "problem" that there are less men than women in the education field).
"Because only one in four IT jobs belongs to a woman, the researchers questioned how the combination of an Old Boys' Network and the male-dominated IT workplace affected women."
The conclusion of the "study" is that companies need to provide special social networking opportunities for women to solve this "problem".
Anonymous User writes "The New York Times is such a s****y and biased paper. Here is a clearly biased article on move-aways. It belongs in the editorial section, not the news section. Nary a word is offered to point out that non-custodial dads are almost always just as good or better parents as their female counterparts. Thus, switching primary custody to the dad in case the mom moves away should most often be a clear and healthy alternative to allowing mom to uproot the child and move away."
Rand T. writes ""Benefits reduced. Promotions forgotten. Jobs gone. It's tough to find these conditions when returning home from the mean streets of Iraq, ready to resume your civilian career. Increasing numbers of National Guard and Reserve troops returning home are experiencing just such disappointment."
Davie_boy writes "This article in a Salt Lake City newspaper left me fuming.
Apparently, women just don't commit acts of domestic violence. This article speaks volumes about the media bias against men. I just wonder how, as Searle suggests at the end of the article, men are supposed to stop domestic violence when people are turning a blind eye to 1/2 of the problem. It's unfortunate that what will probably happen as DV advocates try to educate the public and local ecclesiastical leaders on the issue is that it will always be from a "woman is victim" position. Sadly, I think this approach will only add fuel to the fire."
Vili Fualaau, the 21 year-old boy statutorily raped by Mary Kay Letourneau when he was 12 years old, was interviewed by Matt Lauer: here . He states that she destroyed his ability to have relationships with women close to his age. He has been emotionally troubled. He was unable to finish high school. There were two children, the first born when he was 13. Sadly, Vili is now asking to reestablish contact with Letourneau."
It's hard to fault the jury in this case. After all, they weren't allowed to hear the testimony of those who had formerly been abused and injured in Dianne Scribner's care. Also, it appears from the article, (though it isn't entirely clear), that judge Timothy McManus didn't allow the prosecution to mention that this is the second time a child has died while in her care. Everything seems to be business as usual here, Mr. Scribner was the first prime suspect in spite of a rock solid alibi, the Star Tribune publishes the story with a very sympathetic tone for Mrs. Scribner, community members show her lots of support, and we can only hope that next time her history of abusing and murdering children is found admissable.
