Alan Greenblatt. Political discord tends to lead to disharmony in relationships. She’s dated Democrats in the past, but she found their acceptance of abortion heartbreaking and their support of President Obama nearly as off-putting. It’s such a big difference. Northrup may sound a little judgmental, but she’s not alone in her opinion.

Most of the major online dating sites won’t set up Republicans with Democrats either. For most people, it’s not that partisan loyalty is all that meaningful. It’s more that firmly-held positions on issues — particularly social issues such as abortion and gay marriage — are wrapped up tight with their overall worldviews, says Peter Hatemi, a political scientist at Penn State University.

A batch of internal documents recently leaked to The Guardian has revealed new insights into the goals and finances of the secretive group called ALEC. The American Legislative Exchange Council is a group that brings together state legislators and representatives of corporations. Together, they develop model bills that lawmakers introduce and try to pass in their state legislatures.

SUMMER SCHOOL 1: Choices & Dating

As protests sweep through India over the Citizenship Amendment Act as well as the National Register of Citizens, an inconspicuous bureaucratic process to create a National Population Register has come under fire. While the National Population Register has not made waves elsewhere, in West Bengal, activists and protesters have attacked the exercise, alleging that it is actually the first step to creating an all-India National Register of Citizens.

The National Register of Citizens is controversial: while its purported aim is to identify illegal immigrants, there are fears it could arbitrarily exclude genuine Indian citizens. What sort of information would the National Population Register collect? The questions include demographic details such as name, age, sex, relationship in household, nationality, educational qualifications, occupation, date of birth, marital status, residential address, birthplace and mother tongue.
