New research published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology finds that women who were reminded of a time that their dad was absent from their lives — or who actually experienced poor quality fathering while growing up — perceived greater mating intent in the described behaviors of a hypothetical male dating partner and when talking with a man. These women also “saw” more sexual arousal when viewing images of men’s faces.

Affirmative Consent in Rape Cases Subject of 2017 Fordham Debate at University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law

affirmative.jpg

American law has long criminalized rape and other forms of sexual assault. In recent decades definitions of such crimes have been expanded, mostly providing greater protections for victims who testify they were subjected to non-consensual sex. This trend has even found its way into popular culture with the catch phrase “no means no.” Some reform advocates contend that the essence of sexual assault is engaging in sexual activity without “affirmative consent.” They contend it is inappropriate to require a person to say “no” (verbally or physically) to sex. Instead, the initiator should obtain an affirmative consent – and silence, in and of itself, does not demonstrate consent. The reformers arguing for “yes means yes” have had a great deal of success in influencing disciplinary standards on college campuses, but with respect to the criminal law, the influence has been much less.

Agricultural Productivity Drove Euro-American Settlement of Utah

Farm_Equipment_Harvester_P_35.jpg

U anthropologists propose that agricultural productivity drove dispersal patterns of early Euro-Americans settlers in Utah in a process that led to the current distribution of populations today. They adapted a well-known ecological model, and tested its predictions by combining satellite-derived measures of agricultural suitability with historical census data.
