Women who are cheated on 'win' in the long run; new women 'lose'
BINGHAMTON, NY - Women who lose their unfaithful mate to another woman actually win in the long run, according to new research. Our thesis is that the woman who loses her mate to another woman will go through a period of post-relationship grief and betrayal, but come out of the experience with higher mating intelligence that allows her to better detect cues in future mates that may indicate low mate value. Hence, in the long-term, she wins, said Craig Morr ...

Do We Ever Really Say Goodbye to Those We Love?
By the time my wife and I had left for the Central American rain forest, I was very ready to be amazed. I was tired of the over-hyped political primary season, of more dire news about climate change , of endless videos of bombings and destruction by religious zealots. I was tired, too, of being tied to screens my ipad, my iphone, my computer, the TV. So much of my world seemed filtered through a digital lens. I wanted the real Amazon, overflowing with life ...
