Scientific American:We are prejudiced against all kinds of other people, based on superficial physical features: We react negatively to facial disfigurement; we avoid sitting next to people who are obese, or old, or in a wheelchair; we favor familiar folks over folks that are foreign. If I asked you why these prejudices exist and what one can do to eliminate them, your answer probably wouldn’t involve the words “infectious disease.” Perhaps it should.What does infectious disease have to do with these prejudices? The answer lies in something that I’ve come to call the “behavioral immune system.” The behavioral immune system is our brain’s way of engaging in a kind of preventative medicine. It’s a suite of psychological mechanisms designed to detect the presence of disease-causing parasites in our immediate environment, and to respond to those things in ways that help us to avoid contact with them. This has many important implications – for prejudice, for sexual attraction, for social interaction, and even for the origins of cultural differences. (And, yes, for health too.)Read more: Scientific American More of our Members in the Media >

In conjunction with the restructuring, Dull also announced the departure of Mike Cable, vice president. AdvertisementClick Here to Read MoreAdvertisement YORK, Pa. – Max Dull, general manager of the MAHLE Clevite RTI division, has announced a restructuring of the division’s sales force to better serve aftermarket customers. In addition to providing overall leadership and vision for the division, Dull has taken on additional responsibility for directing the company’s sales force. Hetzel joined the company in 2012, bringing more than 35 years of automotive equipment expertise to the MAHLE Clevite RTI division. He has worked for Bear Automotive Service Equipment, Rotary Lift, Hennessy Industries, Snap-on Equipment and Bosch Equipment. He has held management positions in customer service, field service, technical service and sales. Hetzel is based in Nashville and responsible for all sales west of the Mississippi in the U.S. and Canada. Korchma has been with the MAHLE Clevite RTI division since 2011 and is responsible for leading, managing and executing the sales function for the company within the Eastern U.S. and Canada. He has broad-based experience in aftermarket sales, including with Three Plane and Co., Kuryakyn, Stingray Distribution, StreetGlow, DiabloSport and Ed Morse Automotive Group. Dull is an experienced senior-level sales and marketing executive with many notable aftermarket companies including Beck/Arnley, Affinia, Uni-Select, AE Clevite and Dana. He spent many years running Beck/Arnley, an aftermarket import parts specialist. He joined MAHLE in October 2013. “With the support of MAHLE and its worldwide resources, we are building a new division with a customer-centric focus,” said Dull. “As we put together a strategic plan and build this new structure to better support our customers, I’m pleased with the opportunity to work directly with our customers and field sales team. This new structure provides a strong foundation for the new products and product enhancements that MAHLE RTI will introduce in 2014.” Keith Korchma, director of eastern regional sales, and William “Bill” Hetzel, director of Western regional sales for MAHLE’s RTI division, will now report directly to Dull.
Tiger Woods won the 83rd Masters on Sunday, capturing his 15th major title to cement an epic return from scandal and injuries that once threatened his career.Woods, who started the day two shots behind Francesco Molinari, fired a final-round 70 for a 13-under par total of 275 and a one-shot win over Dustin Johnson, Xander Schauffele and Brooks Koepka.Woods, clad in bright red, raised his club and fist to the sky then hugged his mother and two children after sinking a short bogey putt to seal the win as the crowd erupted in chants of “Tiger! Tiger! Tiger!”Woods had birdied the par-five 15th hole to take a one-shot lead and stretched it to two strokes with a birdie at the par-three 16th as Molinari’s challenge faced with double bogeys at 12 and 15.Woods’s majesti march to victory was made to the accompaniment of the roars of the Augusta National crowds — those watching him and those who saw his name go up atop the leaderboards around the course.The 14 years between his fourth Masters triumph and his fifth topped the previous longest gap of 13 years between Gary Player’s 1961 win and his 1974 title.For more sport your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.

England managed to take an early lead after a thrilling victory in the first test leaving Virat Kohli and co. several questions to answer.Advertisement The England camp are too having their own problems in the wake of Ben Stokes’ trial which has forced him out of the test. Apart from that, the sloppiness of the slip cordon is another issue as it made matters rough for the hosts throughout the first match.Despite the Indian bowling unit managing to perform as a unit, the batting order failed to live up to their expectation which leads to the question of the changes in the batting line up and order.Advertisement The Indian skipper did not rule out the possibility of including an extra spinner in the playing XI despite the surface sporting a lot of grass.While India look to level the series with yet another historic victory at Lord’s, the hosts will go with their momentum to stretch their lead to put pressure on the visitors.England skipper, Joe Root revealed the playing XI which includes debutant Ollie Pope in place of Dawid Malan and Chris Woakes in place of Ben Stokes.England Playing XI: Keaton Jennings, Alastair Cook, Joe Root (c), Ollie Pope, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Jos Buttler, Chris Woakes/Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Adil Rashid, Stuart Broad, James Anderson.India Probable XI: Murali Vijay, KL Rahul, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (c), Ajinkya Rahane, Dinesh Karthik (wk), R Ashwin, Hardik Pandya, Mohammed Shami, Ishant Sharma, Umesh YadavRead Also:England vs India- 2nd Test: Predicted XI for the BluesCricket: People who think Test cricket is “dead” should watch England’s dramatic 31-run win over India in the first Test “on repeat”, says captain Joe Root Advertisement

Powered by Firework Chelsea star Eden Hazard has made up his mind on his future in London by refusing to sign a new contract amid Real Madrid links. Chelsea are rendered powerless in stopping him from leaving even if they trigger his one-year extension clause, as the club will be forced to accept whatever offer will be on the table thereon.Advertisement The long standing Real Madrid-Eden Hazard saga might just be coming to an end in the summer as the La Liga giants are confident of landing the Premier League star in Zidane’s all new lineup, while Chelsea are out of moves to try and entice the ace to stay.To add to the misery of the Blues, not even Champions League football can convince the Belgian to further his stay in London. Hazard’s heroics against West Ham have further upped the ante, and as he enters the final year of his deal, the Blues ought to make a decision quickly. Should they reject Real’s offer, hold him against his will and extend his stay another year, they risk not only losing him on a free later but also a reported £100m sum in return.Advertisement The Stamford Bridge outfit have already insisted that any bids from fellow Premier League sides for the Belgium international will not be considered, and with that being said, should Hazard indeed become a free agent, Chelsea face the highly undesired possibility of losing their prized forward to their English rivals.Read also:-Advertisement Chelsea considering a move for Edinson Cavani to replace Eden HazardChelsea shortlist two options as the replacement of Maurizio Sarri Advertisement
