Sharing in Purgatory

We're back on Lisa Belkin's NY Times Motherlode blog again today (thanks, Lisa!) with a guest post dissecting newly published co-parenting research from Ohio State University. The media coverage, until now, has been rather abysmal on this one - with provocative headlines such as Dads are Fun, Moms are Shrews, Fathers Should Be a Little Less Involved in Parenting, Men Should Concentrate on Playing with Their Children and Leave the Care to Women, and even Splitting Child Rearing Duties Can Be More Harmful Than Helpful.

But when we actually read the study, we found something very different...data that make sense given the non-ESP study population, and great fodder for the argument to make sure that you share the power and responsibility at home when you attempt to also share the chores. Check out our analysis and leave a comment if you can.

Many thanks to the study's co-author Sarah Schoppe-Sullivan, psychologist at the Department of Human Development and Family Science, for allowing us to interview her. Her response to our NYT blog post: "Wonderful post! Just fabulous! A great analysis of relevant issues and you have also assuaged some of my guilt from how my study is being interpreted. Bravo and keep up the excellent work!" 

It feels great to have made a new friend in the ESP-research world.

When you are writing your law dissertation help london, it is important to make sure that you are aware of the different types of writing needed for a thesis. A law dissertation can be either descriptive or analytical work. A descriptive work will focus on the facts and figures of the case while an analytical work will analyze the legal arguments made in order to arrive at a conclusion.

One type of writing that is often needed for law dissertations is journal research. Journal research can take many forms such as interviewing witnesses, reviewing case files, and conducting surveys. If you are looking to do journal research, it is important to familiarize yourself with the different types of writing required for a thesis. Make sure to include this information when you are planning your research effort.

When it comes to writing your law dissertation, always remember that you are working for someone else – your professor.

This literary journey combines wisdom with confusion, resulting in a more complete awareness of the afterlife of literature.
