Hippocampus throughout the menstrual cycle

The recent issue of the journal Hippocampus has an interesting article on the structure of the hippocampus throughout the menstrual cycle. By studying women two times during the menstrual cycle (pre- and post-menstrual) using volumetric MR scanning, researchers Xenia Protopopescu and her colleagues at Cornell University demonstrated structural changes in the hippocampus. Specifically, gray matter was relatively increased in the right anterior hippocampus and relatively decreased in the right dorsal basal ganglia (globus pallidus/putamen) in the postmenstrual phase.

The science is a little over my head; I guess I should try to read this again in about two weeks. 😉

Drinking mom asks daughter, 9, to drive

TORONTO (Reuters) – An Ontario woman was charged with a traffic violation after having her nine-year-old daughter drive her home following a night of drinking.

“The woman was concerned that she was unable to drive having consumed some alcohol at a social function,” police said on Thursday.

The child was driving the car slowly along country roads in southeastern Ontario on October 12 when police noticed how tiny she was and pulled her over, police said.

What do you want to bet this bitch dumped her husband and took their daughter away from him?

Naked Woman in Police Chase Without Headlights

LOS ANGELES (CBS) ― A naked woman suspected in a Pasadena, Calif. car vandalism was taken into custody Thursday night after leading police officers on a wild car chase.

Police say the woman was reported vandalizing a car and jumped into her car when she saw police officers. The female suspect led police onto the Ventura Freeway, the and the Golden State Freeway, driving at speeds as high as 95 mph without headlights.

There’s a (clothed) picture of the bimbo here. She’s moderately pretty. In a nonfeminist era, she’d probably have been a nice girl, not a criminal slut.

Mark Twain was a prophet.

In an essay about women’s suffrage, he envisioned the campaign slogans:

“Vote for Judy McGinniss, the incorruptible! Nine children – one at the breast!”

Women shouldn’t be security guards

October 1, 2008

You probably all remember the case of Brian Nichols, the 6’1 rapist who was put in the charge of a 5’1 middle-aged woman. Shockingly, he overpowered her, punched her in the face so hard that she sustained brain damage and the ER medics thought that she had been shot, took her gun, killed three people and made his escape. It was terribly sexist of him not to remain in the guard’s custody the way he would have if she had been a man. He should have been indoctrinated in school to respect women as equals.

Now here’s another incident:

Armored car guard robbed in Kips Bay

KIPS BAY (WABC) — A female armored car guard was robbed of a large amount of money and her weapon outside a bank in Kips Bay Tuesday morning.

Police say the guard was attacked outside the M&T Bank at 397 1st Avenue just after 9:30 a.m.

The armored car guard, a woman, was reportedly attacked while either making a delivery or picking up money at the bank.

Police say she was put in a headlock by the suspect, who may have been armed with a knife.

Cops hunt gunman in Manhattan armored car heist

Police say the guard went into the vestibule of the bank and noticed a man in a gray hooded sweat shirt near an automated teller machine. As she went to the bank entrance he pounced from behind, put his arm around her chest and grabbed her handgun.

The guard dropped a nylon bag with the cash inside.

But it would be sexist not to endanger women by putting them in dangerous jobs where large men will assault them.
