The human brain has been evolving over 3.5 million years, and our thoughts, behaviors, and actions are rooted in a system that is evolutionary, adaptive, and unencumbered by political, social, or religious constraints.Evolution only cares about one thing: survival of our genes.It's also because we've actually done an awful lot of work into the maths of how to find the perfect partner.Peter Backus tries to rate his chances of finding love. Of all of the available women in the UK, all Peter's looking for is somebody who lives near him, somebody in the right age range, somebody with a university degree, somebody he's likely to get on well with, somebody who's likely to be attractive, somebody who's likely to find him attractive. Now, just to put that into perspective, that's about 400 times fewer than the best estimates of how many intelligent extraterrestrial life forms there are.And how can you gauge his feelings without seeing his body language or even hearing his voice? In The Joy of Text, real-life cyber-Cyrano Kristina Grish establishes hard and fast rules to help modern women navigate their love lives via technology; offers invaluable tips on how to analyze text, timing, and tone; and provides advice on etiquette in an age when the handwritten thank-you note is all but obsolete.SHIFT Students is the weekly gathering of the Christ’s Church of the Valley Student Ministry at the San Dimas Campus pm.A “down and dirty” scavenger hunt will lead you to stations throughout the Zoo to get an insider’s perspective of our on-site animal care programs and field conservation work.But it's not just because of our dashing personalities, superior conversational skills and excellent pencil cases.
In this podcast I talk to best-selling author Tucker Max, no longer the wild man of his youth, about mating, dating and finding fulfillment in sexual relations.*Apologies for the audio difficulties in the first 120 seconds. Join us for a titillating night exploring animal courtship, breeding behaviors and the lowdown on programs zoos lead to ensure genetic diversity and healthy animal populations.If we could sum up our desire in one word it would be transformation. We want to see students transformed by the power of Christ.
