From Anita Hill's accusations of harassment by Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas to Gennifer Flowers' claim of ** an illicit affair with presidential candidate Bill Clinton, from the date rape trial of William Kennedy Smith (acquitted) to that of Mike Tyson (convicted), it has been a rough year for relations between the sexes. On Valentine's Day, it is fair to ask: Can men and women get along?That is a far different question from the old male cry of "What do women want?" The question has usually been asked with the heavy implication that no one could ever provide a rational or lasting answer -- mostly because the answer would have to come from women who, from the male point of view, were often irrational and fickle.

College freshmen are completing their first month on campus. According to the website  The Other Freshman 15 , "The first 15 weeks of college can be the riskiest for sexual assault. ... One out of five students experience rape or sexual assault while they are in college, and in the great majority of cases (75-80 percent), the victim knows the attacker. " The  Washington Post  recently carried a front-page story about campus sexual assaults. As the father of former college students, two of whom are daughters, I was stunned by the presumptions in the story.

Havre de Grace. -- The Wall Street Journal reported this past week that women are different from men.This interesting and potentially important discovery turned up in a series of articles about computers. It seems women (and girls) don't view the things in the same light that men (and boys) do. They use them differently, too.Experts consulted by the Journal report that women use computers as tools to do a job, but they don't love them. They want them to function, but they don't care if they understand them.

Unlike Mark Turgeon's first three years at Maryland, when a lack of early-season road experience and not many tough non-league games left his men's basketball team a little ill-prepared for what it would face in the ACC, the Terps should be more battle-tested when they start play in the Big Ten. Unlike Maryland's final season in the ACC, most of the Big Ten's marquee programs will be coming to College Park. The 2014-15 schedule, which was unveiled Thursday night on the Big Ten Network, includes a previously announced first-round matchup against Arizona State in the CBE Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City on Nov. 24 as well as a home game against longtime rival Virginia on Dec. 3 in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge.

So the porn industry is now in the business of educating our youth. A spokesman for Digital Playground expressed disappointment with the cancellation of a public screening of one of the company's porn movies at the University of Maryland, College Park, claiming that showing such a movie "opens up a discussion, a discourse on sexuality and gender roles." Actually, it does no such thing. Showing porn movies on campus creates a hostile and dangerous environment for its female students, it distorts how students think about sex and it debases both men and women.

On a dark November evening, Sara and Nelson Fishman's home glows with the passions and insights of a group who have gathered to discuss "Call It Sleep," Henry Roth's 1934 classic novel about Jewish immigrants in New York City.After a pleasant half-hour of cake and coffee and a warm-up biographical introduction by book club leader Ghita Levine, the discussion gets right down to business."Something that bothered me is that the descriptions . . . are very surface. You know what everybody says but not what they think," says Sidney Brower, a professor of urban planning at the University of Maryland.

Washington -- I knew everything had changed when a male colleague walked in the office last week and greeted me with a cool, professional "Hello, Susan."My head turned in astonishment. This was a breakthrough.For four years, this man had swept into the office with a breezy, "Hi, beautiful!" There was never any chance of mistaking this for a compliment; it was the same line he used on every female with whom he had more than a passing acquaintance.But now, it seemed, the sassy salutations were to be no more.

WASHINGTON - A new computer program can determine in most cases the sex of an author by detecting subtle differences in the words men and women prefer to use. For instance, female writers tend to choose grammatical terms that apply to personal relationships, such as "for" and "with," more frequently than men do. "Women have a more interactive style," said Shlomo Argamon, a computer scientist at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago who developed...

FORT MEADE -- Quietly and without fanfare, men and women in the Army achieved a measure of equality last week on a muddy practice field.Sgt. Corinne Castanza and Spc. Omari Walker had to complete at least 50 sit-ups to pass the Army's new physical fitness test.Five years in the making, the new test narrows a gender gap that caused grumbling from male soldiers, who complained that women were getting off easy on the semiannual test that also requires push-ups and and a 2-mile run.And there's a lot at stake in the three events of the test: The fitness score is among the factors considered for promotions and entry into advanced Army courses.

Recent executive orders from the White House have rekindled a decades-long debate about gender pay disparities that persist in corporate America. Some blame the gap on lingering workplace biases that protect the "C suite" senior executives as the domain of men. Others dismiss the problem as overstated, citing the choices that women often make to sacrifice career advancement in favor of family. A new study, which I co-authored with Geoffrey Tate from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, debunks the argument that gender pay differences largely reflect the unequal career choices of men and women.

It swallowed people up. That's what it really did, if you want to know the truth. It swallowed them up whole, swallowed them up by the millions. In the process, it hollowed out communities, broke families, stranded hope. Politicians brayed that they were being "tough on crime" -- as if anyone is really in favor of crime -- as they imposed ever longer and more inflexible sentences for nonviolent drug offenses. But the "War on Drugs" didn't hurt drugs at all: Usage rose by 2,800 percent -- that's not a typo -- in the 40 years after it began in 1971.

Are men and women so different in their management styles? I am beginning to wonder. For years, the conventional wisdom has preached that to be successful in the corporate ranks, women had to become more like men. Be hard driving. Work long hours, with lots of "face time. " Show unbridled ambition. Demand what you want. I have watched lots of men - and women - try this approach, which I think of as the top-down, military-style model. The funny thing is, I have not seen it work very often.

Many banners overlook the pool at the Newton White Athletic Center, but three stand out. The 1977, '78 and '79 Johns Hopkins men's swimming national championships stare out over the pool, as if to motivate those who have qualified for this year's championships today through Saturday in Indianapolis. On the pool deck, coach George Kennedy writes practice information on a whiteboard as his men's and women's teams wait patiently in the water. After a brief period of instruction, the swimmers begin to warm up with paced laps, going about their business of trying to earn more titles.

At first, she thought there was damage to her meniscus. She played through it, refusing to give up her final year of basketball to injury.

It has been four weeks since Navy added to its string of victories over Army in college football's most venerated rivalry, but the amicable athletic animosity between the nation's two oldest service academies does not begin and end on the gridiron. Their reciprocal mantras - "Go Navy, beat Army" and "Go Army, Beat Navy" - reverberate through their respective athletic programs all year round, and the intensity of the rivalry was very much on display for Saturday's nationally televised basketball doubleheader at Alumni Hall.
