Dr. Mary L. Disis and colleagues at the University of Washington decided to test an HER-2/neu vaccine after discovering that some breast cancer patients already have a low level of immunity to the protein.

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

Cupid Vanquished. Part 1

Kiss those chocolates and roses goodbye, ladies. If you are a student at one of the 500-plus colleges that have signed on to the “V-Day 2002College Initiative,” you’re in for a very different kind of Valentine’s Day experience. This February 14, feminists want you to cast off those fusty old romantic trappings and claim Valentine’s Day as a feminist holiday. In that spirit, they have renamed February 14, “V-Day”—and with apologies to our readers, we report that the “V” stands for “vagina, anti-violence, and victory.”

Like the reciprocal relation of success and family for women, self-esteem works differently for men and women. “Women with low self-esteem are more likely to be engaged in [risky] sexual interactions,” stated Dr. Drew. “On the other hand, guys with low self-esteem are less likely to have sex.

Dr. Hewlett began researching her book when asked by the Harvard Business Review to interview successful women of the “breakthrough generation” who profited from the Equal Rights legislation of the 1970s. She interviewed ten successful women—including Diane Sawyer, Donna Shalala, and Jessie Norman—and rather surprisingly found that all ten of these highly successful women, rather than expressing satisfaction at their unequivocal success, were regretful and childless.

Sex & Dating Conference. Part 1

In July, 450 workers packed into the stately Russell Senate Caucus Room on Capitol Hill for IWF’s Second Annual Sex and Dating Conference.
The campus project of the IWF, was thrilled to bring back Dr. Drew Pinksy, M.D.—an internist and the co-host of the Loveline radio show. A true favorite among Generation Y on issues relating to relationships and dating, “Dr. Drew” captivated the crowd with his presentation on the inherent differences between men and women. “I hear all kinds of negative insults thrown at men,” Dr. Drew commented. “They’re bad, they’re dogs, they’re stupid.
