Why Men Outnumber Women Attending Business Schools

Originally published on Wed April 9, 2014 5:02 am

Transcript

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

All this week we have been focusing on women and wealth. Look across the business world in fields with the biggest paychecks and you find executive ranks and company boards dominated by men. These disparities often begin back in business school where men outnumber women significantly. NPR social science correspondent Shankar Vedantam came in to talk about research that might help explain this. It looked specifically at why some women opt out of a lucrative career path. Hey, Shankar.

Some Americans Find It Hard To Pinpoint Ukraine

Originally published on Tue April 8, 2014 5:09 am

Transcript

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Steve Inskeep with a geography note.

Ukraine is in Europe next to Russia. We say this because academics asked 2,000 Americans to find Ukraine on a world map and most could not. Most did put it in Europe or Asia but some put Ukraine in Alaska, Brazil or Utah. Researchers told The Washington Post of a connection, too. The less people know about Ukraine's location, the more they favor military intervention there. Makes sense. We'd all intervene if Ukraine was in Tennessee.
