Kevin D. Williamson's article starts with the premise that women — even Michelle Obama! — must elect Romney because he's blinged-out rich, and of course women are attracted to status — while men go for youth and fertility. Then he goes on for a couple more unbearable, rambling pages.
Dr. Lynda Klau Years ago I read that sentence in an inspirational book by Marilyn Ferguson called “The Aquarian Conspiracy.” There are some lines that you hear once and never forget. This is one of them. Ferguson was right. Avoidance does work. You can push down, cut off, go far away, blame, not see—to varying degrees—feelings and thoughts inside you.
Our species is living longer, getting married later, and having children a decade (or more) later than prior generations. Due to technological innovations and advances in science and medicine, we are improving our health and as a consequence, prolonging our lives. What this means according to scientists, is that middle age is coming on later. So that by 2050, 52 years of age will be considered middle age, instead of 40 years of age, which was considered middle age in 2000.

Seventy-eight million of us baby boomers who grew up in United States during the 1970s remember this slogan as an iconographic hallmark from the feminist movement, an unofficial benchmark signifying that women were emancipated and free (if you considered smoking and wearing pants the epitome of freedom).

Turns out, this phenomenon is alive and well in the penguin community too!

Ever wonder why we usually gravitate toward the tallest man in the room? A new study found that it's all about biology. Scientists say that women perceive men of substantial height as better fighters and more useful than their shorter counterparts.
When I first began promoting my program The Art and Science of Romance, I discovered an audience ready and eager to receive my gospel about the benefits of romance. There seems to be a swelling among women who have found success in the work place to bring back a respect for this human experience that’s been trivialized and corrupted by our much too serious culture!
Just as we saw the evolution of bigger beaks in Galápagos finches so they could break seeds for eating, we're seeing an evolution in how humans engage in relationships. Monogamy, unfortunately, isn’t natural for primates and mammals.
