Redesign dating apps to lessen racial bias, study recommends September 28, by Melanie Lefkowitz, Cornell University Credit: Brand Communications Mobile dating apps that allow users to filter their searches by race — or rely on algorithms that pair up people of the same race — reinforce racial divisions and biases, according to a new paper by Cornell researchers. As more and more relationships begin online, dating and hookup apps should discourage discrimination by offering users categories other than race and ethnicity to describe themselves, posting inclusive community messages, and writing algorithms that don’t discriminate, the authors said. Although partner preferences are extremely personal, the authors argue that culture shapes our preferences, and dating apps influence our decisions. More people are using these apps, and they’re critical infrastructures that don’t get a lot of attention when it comes to bias and discrimination,” said Hutson, now a student at the University of Washington School of Law. Tinder and Grindr have tens of millions of users, and Tinder says it has facilitated 20 billion connections since its launch. Research shows racial inequities in online dating are widespread. For example, black men and women are 10 times more likely to message whites than white people are to message black people. Letting users search, sort and filter potential partners by race not only allows people to easily act on discriminatory preferences, it stops them from connecting with partners they may not have realized they’d like. Apps may also create biases.

We measured 14C ages of calendar-dated tree rings from AD to from southern Jordan to investigate contemporary 14C levels and to compare these with IntCal While relatively small, such an offset has substantial relevance to high-resolution 14C chronologies for the southern Levant, both archaeological and paleoenvironmental. Such differences affect, and even potentially undermine, several current archaeological and historical positions and controversies.

Teen dating violence leaves scars, experts say Diverse Images Diverse Images Janice Neumann, Special to the Tribune Sheela Raja remembers treating a victim of teen dating violence who at first felt too ashamed to talk about the experience. Instead, the victim buried the trauma in alcohol until she finally opened up during therapy. Raja, a licensed clinical psychologist, and other domestic violence experts are calling for more awareness about the negative health consequences of dating violence.

As an entering student, I visited Princeton University in the middle of April. The campus is coated in blossoming trees, while the buildings are old yet renovated inside. The air is cool and moist, but not humid like southeast Texas. Another thing I enjoy is the commitment to sustainability, especially in projects abroad and the dining hall food. The Princeton Environmental institute does classes with local farmers using a variety of methods and chefs from many culinary backgrounds.
What I like most about Princeton is the community. My host and his friends had endless intellectual and personal discussions and readily invited me into their part of Princeton. Freshman Overall Experience Report I like the small school vibe which makes Princeton feel more tight-knit than larger universities. The residential college system also helps to promote a sense of unity among students on campus.
I also think there is enough entertainment on and off campus with eating clubs on campus and NYC and Philadelphia within a train ride away from campus. However, academics can be intense and stress culture is definitely palpable, especially during midterms and finals period.

Research illuminates inaccuracies in radiocarbon dating June 5, by Daniel Aloi, Cornell University Sturt Manning cores a multi-century old Juniperus phoenicea tree near Petra in southern Jordan. Cornell University Radiocarbon dating is a key tool archaeologists use to determine the age of plants and objects made with organic material. But new research shows that commonly accepted radiocarbon dating standards can miss the mark—calling into question historical timelines.
Archaeologist Sturt Manning and colleagues have revealed variations in the radiocarbon cycle at certain periods of time, affecting frequently cited standards used in archaeological and historical research relevant to the southern Levant region, which includes Israel, southern Jordan and Egypt. These variations, or offsets, of up to 20 years in the calibration of precise radiocarbon dating could be related to climatic conditions.
Pre-modern radiocarbon chronologies rely on standardized Northern and Southern Hemisphere calibration curves to obtain calendar dates from organic material.

Relationships that start slowly are more satisfying in the end. A study of hundreds of couples found those who waited to have sex were happier in the long-run. Women particularly benefited from not leaping into bed at the first opportunity. Marriage also seemed to make them happier than co-habiting. Researchers say couples are happier when they abstain in the bedroom The researchers said delaying sex gave couples time to get to know each other and work out just how compatible they were.
Without this period of courtship, judgment can be clouded, leading to couples falling into unfulfilling long-term relationships. They were asked how committed they were to the relationship, how emotionally involved they were and how well they communicated, as well as about how often they argued and about their level of sexual satisfaction. They were also asked how long they had waited before sleeping together and money worries and other factors that could have skewed the results of the study were taken into account.
Analysis of the data clearly showed the women who had waited to have sex to be happier. And those who waited at least six months scored more highly in every category measured than those who got intimate within the first month.
