The interview was in advance of Costas' appearance in the Maverick Speakers Series on April 13 at College Park Center.

Women and lumbar curvature

A UT Arlington study has shown a preference toward lumbar curvature based on a prehistoric preference of a woman's ability to better support, provide for and carry out multiple pregnancies, Third Age reported. The study was published in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior.

Cross concerns

More than 200 UT Arlington students signed a petition at a protest calling for the removal of a memorial display organized by a pro-life student group on campus, Campus Reform reported. The display, which was the work of the Pro-Life Mavericks, consisted of 2,900 small wooden crosses on the Central Library Mall. The number of crosses is intended to represent the number of children killed by abortion each day.

Scholarships awarded

The American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women and Macy’s are once again set to award 16 scholarships of $2,500 each to help increase the number of diverse healthcare professionals, in an effort to help improve culturally sensitive, patient-centered care, EIN News and several other media websites reported. Olivia Morris, a future UT Arlington nursing student, was one of those scholarship recipients.

Suspect arrested

A man jailed Wednesday on accusations that he fondled one woman and exposed himself to another on the UT Arlington campus the day before had previously been accused of similar incidents in Florida — including the attempted abduction of a young girl, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.
