University of Kansas Football Coach Bans Players from Seeing Women after 10 P.M.

In a bid to turn around his team’s losing ways (and boy have they been spectacular with last weekend’s blowout against middling Baylor and a loss to North Dakota State — which plays in a lower tier! — in which they managed only 3 points), first year University of Kansas football coach Turner Gill has instituted a curfew which prohibits his boys from “seeing women” after 10 P.M.

Apart from keeping his players from likely having late-night sex (apparently college kids, especially jocks, like to do that from time to time), Gill also wants to teach the team appropriate ways to interact with the fairer sex:

The True Cost of Being Single: £250,000

Living alone costs single people an extra £250,000 over a lifetime, it has been claimed, in a new study commissioned by UK price comparison website uSwitch. Researchers compared the spending of people living alone with couples, and found that carrying the full burden of a mortgage, holidays and bills all adds up and that single people actually spend more than £250,000 over the course of their life because they are not part of a couple.

Added importance has been given to the findings by the projection that the number of single-person households in the UK could reach 9.5 million over the next decade.

The biggest aspect of what has been dubbed the ‘singles tax’ is housing, with people who live alone having to pay an average of £7,080 a year on mortgage or rent compared with £3,804 for someone living with a partner. On top of this there is the full cost of household bills, not shared, and council tax. Here in the UK, lone residents can claim a rebate on council tax, it is only 25% rather than the 50% it should be to equal what a couple pays.

Expensive single hotel rooms and the lack of opportunity for bulk buying at the supermarket were noted as additional ‘penalties’ faced by singles. Ann Robinson, of uSwitch, stated that:

Does No-Fault Divorce Harm Women and Children Disproportionately?

A new report from The Heritage Foundation claims that no fault divorce hurts women and children, and has led to a breakdown of traditional marriage and family values. The article was written in response to New York making strides to become the final state to adopt no-fault divorce. One of the points that the article focuses on is the strange bedfellows that this bill has made, as the National Organization for Women (NOW) and the state Catholic conference have teamed up to oppose the bill using the same logic that The Heritage Foundation is using. Specifically, the groups argue that, “the bill would allow judges to ignore cruelty that occurs in some marriages and also permit husbands to hide assets from the court, leaving divorced women and children financially unstable.” While this argument may be true in some cases, no fault divorce in fact often helps to mitigate these very same circumstances.

The Heritage Foundation cites the current fifty percent divorce rate, the decline in the number of marriages, and the increase in the number of people cohabiting and having children out-of-wedlock as the problems related to no-fault divorce. In addition, Senior Research Fellow Chuck Donovan, in a WebMemo entitled “Marriage, Parentage, and the Constitution of the Family,” states that, “children of divorce disproportionately suffer from such maladies as …

Royal Navy to Allow Women to Serve on Submarines for the First Time

The Royal Navy is preparing to allow women to serve on its submarine fleet for the first time, the UK’s Daily Mail reported on Monday.

The move comes after a report found that life aboard a submarine would not adversely affect pregnant women. Previously accepted thinking was that recycled air and living and working close to a nuclear reactor would affect unborn babies – but this has now been dispelled.

Most navies, including the US Navy, still prohibit women from serving on submarines, though there are some exceptions, including Canada and Australia. The Royal Navy currently only allows three exceptions to the blanket ban on women being on board military submarines: women midshipmen on an overnight stay during summer training, female civilian technicians (for a few days at most) and family members for one-day dependent cruises.

In addition to opening up more military jobs to women, recruiting females into the 110-year old Royal Navy submarine service will also help to overcome significant command shortages aboard submarines, it is thought. Despite this, however, the proposal has drawn a predictably colourful range of reactions.
