Image inside Why Are So Many Female Teachers Sleeping With Students? Read more at: http://www.intellec

| By BlacksAMillion - 3 hours ago



I posed this question on my Facebook page a few days: “Is there much/any social science on the phenomena of female teaches suddenly sleeping with students?”

This was shortly after news broke that a 24-year-old Texas teacher was on the lam for allegedly sexually assaulting a 13-year-old student (who had also impregnated her, according to reports). [Editor's Note: This week's example can be found here.]




A lively social media conversation quickly followed. Many theories were offered and most of the comments (surprisingly) were thoughtful.


My reason for asking the question was that I wanted to better understand why there appears to be an increasing prevalence of female teachers—many of them young and attractive—to have sex with their students.

I say “appears” for a reason. I’m aware that the nature of these stories make them ripe for media attention and sensationalism, something several readers pointed out.

So, do the numbers bear out an actual increase in prevalence?

A decade ago, William Saleton of Slate asked this question. His answer? No, it doesn’t.

Saleton pointed to a bulk of research that showed that female educators convicted of sexual assault appeared to make up a fraction of overall cases, 4 percent to 20 percent, depending on the study. (Overall, females committed just 3.5 percent of sex crimes in the U.S.)

But that was a decade ago. Our world has changed a lot since then. What does more recent data reflect?

It appears things have changed.

Terry Abbott, chairman of Drive West Communications and a former chief of staff at the U.S. Department of Education, wrote an article in the Washington Post last year.

He said teachers are committing more student-related sex crimes, and he cited several examples, including the following:

In Texas, home to the largest number of teacher sexual misconduct cases in the country, investigations into alleged inappropriate teacher-student relationships has grown 27 percent over the past three years, to 179. Kentucky schools reported more than 45 sexual relationships between teachers and students in 2011, up from 25 just a year earlier. And a surge has been reported in Alabama, where the state investigated 31 cases during the year ending July 2013, nearly triple the number it had investigated just four years earlier.

But this data involves teacher-student sex crimes generally. What about female educators specifically?

Though Abbott did not directly address this question, the research he cites suggests that female teacher-student sex crimes are on the rise.

In 2014, Abbott said, two-thirds of reported teacher-related sexual misconduct cases with students involved men; that means one-third of the cases involved female teachers.

If Abbott’s statistics are accurate, it would represent an enormous increase from just a decade ago, when female teachers accounted for as little as four percent of reported sex crimes involving students. (This, of course, assumes the studies cited in Saleton’s article are accurate, as well.)

What does it all mean?

A more precise review of data is no doubt warranted before it would be prudent to declare this a sexual epidemic. Anyone who has worked with statistics knows they can be fickle.

But sometimes conventional wisdom is right.

So let’s assume for a moment that sex crimes committed by female teachers are on the rise. The question becomes: What is driving it?

Abbott points to social media. A lot of people might be tempted to roll their eyes at this answer, but it’s a theory that makes sense and is supported by the data. (For one, it would fit the timeline of the rise. Additionally, Abbott's group found that women used social media in 40 percent of the sex crimes they tracked.)

Still, is there anything else that might explain an increase in prevalence? Could other factors besides technology be driving so many young women to commit crimes of passion that seem certain to land them behind bars?

Finally, to come full circle, why can’t I find some good social science on this?

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency officers caught two deer on camera fighting in a unique way this week.

The white-tailed bucks can be seen fighting each other as if they were “slapping.”

“… We are thrilled that TWRA’s Wildlife Officers Amy and Bubba Spencer caught this great duel on one of their trail cameras,” the agency wrote. “Amy and Bubba think these two bucks were working out their issues over a small food plot in Hardeman County.”

According to Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, in spring and summer, bucks form “bachelor groups” when their antlers are growing and testosterone levels are low. TWRA says they typically get along well but still establish a “pecking order” within the group and sometimes flail one another with their front hooves as opposed to sparring with their antlers.

The antlers are growing bones containing blood vessels and nerves and are covered with velvet, according to TWRA. Growing antlers are sensitive and bucks are very protective of them during this time, choosing instead to spar with their hooves. As day-length shortens in the fall, testosterone levels rise causing antlers to harden and the velvet to fall off. Bucks become intolerant of one another and exhibit aggressive behavior by sparring with their now hardened antlers.

TWRA says there are around 900,000 white-tailed deer in Tennessee. The species can be found across the state, but in the 1940’s they were mainly living in East Tennessee

Man's Best Friend: Loyal Dog Chases Ambulance For Miles To Stay By His Owner's Bedside


A devoted dog has proved its unfailing love for its master after it raced after an ambulance which was taking him to hospital.

Desperate not to lose sight of the vehicle, the pet was filmed bounding along in the middle of the road in the driver's wing mirror by an astounded paramedic in Goiana, Brazil.

The recording, released on the weekend, then switches to the passenger's side and captures the adorable creature bounding beside the vehicle for several minutes in its determination to keep up.



At one stage the dog starts to fall behind as it begins to run out of breath, but keeping close to the side of the ambulance, the pet looks up appealingly at the crew as if pleading for help.

Realising the long journey to the general hospital will be too much for the animal, the ambulance crew eventually decide to stop the vehicle and let the 'man's best friend' climb on board.

Paramedic Celiomar Ferreira do Couto, 42, who made the video, said the whole service team was touched by the love shown by the dog for its owner, a homeless man.

'I've been doing this job for 19 years and I've never seen anything like it,' said Mr Couto.

'Sometimes we arrive at the scene of an emergency and there are pets around but they are too shy for us to get close to and they often run way. I have never seen this reaction in all my career.'




Commenting in the video, Mr Couto says to his colleague as he watches the dog chase the ambulance – 'doesn't he get tired?'

Then to the dog he shouts – 'Go home. Go and have a rest, give up.'


On board, the faithful companion won praise for its good behaviour. The crew allowed it to sit next to the owner in the ambulance all the way to the hospital.

'We couldn't believe how well-behaved the dog was,' he added. 'It just sat quietly and patiently beside its owner. It didn't even bark.

'The man was in and out of consciousness but he could see his companion was right there with him on the way'.

Once at the hospital, the owner, who had suffered an epileptic seizure, was placed on a stretcher.





The affectionate pet was again filmed hovering close by, eventually settling down patiently to stay beside the bedside.

The hospital has not been able to comment on the outcome of the man's hospital stay and whether he recovered to leave with his pet.

'Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find out what happened to the pet and its owner, but it has certainly given me faith in the loyalty and love that exists between owners and their dogs,' said Mr Couto.

Designed to emulate a human woman, the eerie robot answered questions on a TV show in the UK this week

The remarkable creation, which could be set to redefine how humanity interacts with machines, is the latest in a long line of realistic talking robots developed by Texas-based firm Hanson Robotics.

Known as 'Sophia', the female robot possesses a strikingly human-like face which combines the features of actress Audrey Hepburn with those of the wife of the company's CEO, David Hanson

With the ability to emulate over sixty separate facial expressions, the robot is perhaps the most human-like machine ever created.

Its most recent appearance was on British TV show Good Morning Britain where hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid carried out an interview using a series of pre-determined questions.

"She is sitting next to me blinking - I'm slightly afraid of her, oh my goodness," said Reid.

The full interview, which aired yesterday on ITV, can be viewed below
