Posted in Equality

Bostonglobe.com 9/10/2014

"... Do American women still need feminism? A controversial social media movement called Women Against Feminism features women explaining — mostly in “selfies” with handwritten signs — why they do not.

Posted in Policy & Legislation

Utsandiego.com 9/10/2014

"... Something clearly needs to be done about how colleges handle sexual assault cases. As recent media accounts have shown, colleges and universities all too often bungle the treatment of victims.

Which Diet Is Best For Long-Term Weight Loss?

Posted in Weight Loss

Bostonglobe.com 9/9/2014

"... Two new diet studies that appear to reach opposite conclusions on what works better for weight loss have left me scratching my head. Both were published last week in highly respected medical journals, but one found that following a high-fat, Atkins-style diet for 12 months led to more weight loss than a low-fat diet, while the other found that it didn’t matter which diet people followed; they all lost similar amounts of weight over the course of a year simply by cutting calories. ..."
