Is the Supreme Court Out of Order?

July 11, 2014

The latest session of the US Supreme Court was especially contentious, with important decisions on the separation of church and state, organized labor, campaign finance reform, birth control and women’s health, among others, splitting the court along its 5-4 conservative-liberal divide.

On the other hand, nearly two-thirds of the court’s decisions this term were unanimous — the first time that’s happened in more than 60 years. But there’s more to that seeming unanimity than meets the eye: in some instances, conservative justices went along but expressed their wish that the court had gone even further to the right, and many believe that some of the decisions might simply be a preliminary step toward a more significant breaking of legal precedent in years to come.

CARTA:Violence in Human Evolution:Pleistocene Societies; Violence in Prehistory;Hunter-Gatherers


University of California Television (UCTV)

Published on Jul 14, 2014

(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) In the last few decades, new sources of evidence have continued to indicate that male violence has played an important role in shaping behavior in the human lineage. The frequency and nature of such violence varies widely among populations and over time raises questions about the factors responsible for the variation. This symposium takes a fresh look at the causes and consequences of variation in aggression, both between and within species. Christopher Boehm (USC) begins with a discussion about Warfare and Feuding in Pleistocene Societies, followed by Patricia Lambert (Utah State Univ) on Bioarchaeological Perspectives on Male Violence in Prehistory, and Kim Hill (Arizona State Univ) on Male Violence among the Aché and Hiwi Hunter-Gatherers. Recorded on 05/16/2014. Series: “CARTA – Center for Academic Research and Training in Anthropogeny” [7/2014] [Humanities] [Science] [Show ID: 28344]

Published on Jul 14, 2014

Off the coast of Canada’s Baffin Island, polar bears cavort and prowl the ice in search of food. Ice floes are a natural habitat for polar bears, but as the ice melts due to a warming climate, the species faces an uncertain future. Naturalists aboard the National Geographic Explorer share insights about polar bears and their changing habitat.
