Now in Georgia research news: Deadbeat dads, maternal mammals, and egalitarian couples

Let’s say deadbeat dads couldn’t pull it off? Researchers in the College of Georgia and Boston College crunched data from 1979 to 1993 having a “perfect enforcement” baseline model accustomed to predict how absent fathers would pay in a perfect scenario. The end result? Unmarried men might have less kids. For divorced fathers: “We do discover that perfect enforcement results in in regards to a five percentage point loss of divorce rates,” states UGA assistant professor Meghan Skira.

 They are saying you cannot understand maternal love til you have a young child yourself. Ends up, they could be right. Emory College primate experts discovered that molecules preparing your body for having a baby also activate neural pathways motivating parents to look after their newborns. The research states this reaction isn’t restricted to humans and our fellow primates upon giving birth, most mammals develop maternal instincts.

?Should you worry an egalitarian relationship means a shorter period in bed, don’t. Georgia Condition College sociologists refuted a 2013 study claiming that discussing house work cuts into couples’ sex lives, finding rather that couples with equal divisions at work have similar (and often better) sex lives. “The egalitarian couples have sexual intercourse a bit more frequently,” states assistant professor Daniel Carlson.

  1. Why is Walton applying for low income housing? Is TOD the new acronym for low income housing? There is already plenty of low income housing in the area. We do not need anymore. I&1quo;ll bet there will be no low income housing with the Brookhaven TOD. Improvements to the walkway under the bridge? How about a pedestrian friendly bridge over the tracks, right into the station?

  2. The current stadium uses turf. So what difference would it had made to Lee if the Braves stayed or moved? In either i1tance they would have bought turf.
    Suggesting that Lee benefitted from the stadium move because a company he represents on the Internet from the Netherlands could sell the new stadium turf, completely ignores the fact that if the Braves STAYED where they were, they would have also bought turf, right?
    So, you have to be a crackpot to believe that it mattered if the Braves moved or not – which it does not. If you believe Lee benefitted from the move based on his peripheral ties to a turf company, he would have benefitted EITHER WAY.
    And to a1wer the question above, “Who knew…?”
    The a1wer is, “anyone with a damn browser. Lee wasn&1quo;t hiding from anyone in what he does for a living. What Lee does for a living matte1 about as much regarding the Braves&1quo; move to Cobb County about as much as Lee&1quo;s horoscope.”
