UO study finds level of sexism feeds a man's denial Some guys just don't get it. In this case, that commonly used setup line doesn't result in a joke. A University of Oregon study has found that young men who have never been traumatized are the least likely population to believe a person's recounting of child sexual abuse. The study - published in the March issue of the journal Psychology of Women Quarterly - also ... [full story]

BODRUM, Turkey - What would Herodotus, the world's first travel writer, make of his hometown today? He wouldn't even recognize its current name, Bodrum. Just about the only familiar word might be Halikarnas, the city's best-known disco. It was named for Halicarnassus, which is what Bodrum was called when the great Greek historian was born there in 484 B.C. Come to think of it, Herodotus, who captured the essence of much of the ancient world ... [full story]

In its heyday, Life magazine had an impact that's difficult to imagine today. Before television hit its stride, and before newspapers printed even black-and-white photos, Life was the lens through which Americans could view what happened in any week in the U.S. and worldwide. This was accomplished by assembling an unparalleled team of journalists and, in particular, extraordinary photographers - including such greats as Alfred Eisenstaedt, Margaret Bourke-White, Cornell Capa, Edward Steichen, W. Eugene Smith ... [full story]

Muriel is 76 and lives alone. One day at lunch, her daughter catches her staring off into space for a few minutes. Both women think nothing of it and soon forget it ever happened. David is 64 and considered healthy, despite experiencing some confusion and losing track of time on occasion. He, too, assumes this is a natural condition of growing older.

Prague, Vienna and Budapest are a string of historic and cultural pearls in central Europe. These capitals of the Czech Republic, Austria and Hungary each are about 1,000 years old. They have architecturally beautiful landmarks, and they're situated on diverse terrain divided by a river. Many locals of the trio share a love of beer and cigarettes, fattening cuisine (with heaps of french fries no matter the dish), and American pop music. They don't like ... [full story]

Robert Zeps doesn't believe in prayer. He doesn't believe in God. He believes it's all in your head. "It has to be in the brain," he says. "Your brain is your brain and all your thoughts and feelings and what you believe, it all happens in the brain." Sitting in the conference room of his San Diego business, Zeps speaks rapidly, passionately, his British accent making him sound like an English version of Elmer Gantry. ... [full story]

Q: It seems like every time we leave our dog at the boarding kennel for more than two or three days she comes home with a dry, raspy cough. We do not remember our previous dog having this problem. Is it possible that our current dog has a weaker immune system than our previous dog? Should we change boarding kennels? Are there vaccines available to prevent this coughing?

It happens too often: The daughter caring for her parents gets ticked at her siblings for not helping. Before long, everyone's angry.

Whatever the family dynamics, rifts created in times of caregiver stress are difficult to bridge. And when parents are ... [full story]

New Zealand is such a pleasant and lovely land with so many plusses and next to no minuses. No snakes. No poisonous insects or plants. No dangerous wildlife. "But we do have three pests," our Kiwi guide told us on the first day of our 22-day Goway tour, "and all three were introduced here from Australia. The rabbits are a bit of a nuisance. So are the possum. But it's the third pest that really ... [full story]
