FILE THIS under: Men are from bars, women are from Kleenex. In the interest of science, we present this special bilingual editorial to explore the findings of a new major study that suggests how men and women think differently. (Male version) A new study has found a clue to why women are constantly whining and crying. It seems they are programmed to feel and remember emotions more intensely than men. Some guys from the State University of New York and Stanford hooked up the brains of test subjects and found that women's neural responses to emotional scenes were much more active than the men's.

Angel has a beautiful smile and infectious laugh. He loves being around people. The 10-year-old is happiest when he is spoken and sung to. He loves having his face painted. Other favorite activities include art, music, being outdoors, and watching movies. Because of medical issues, he is dependent upon others for his care and uses a wheelchair. Although he is nonverbal, he clearly communicates his feelings. When he is happy his face glows with a dazzling smile and he purses his lips to blow a kiss.

Faking your feelings at work, especially if your boss pressures you to do it, is an important factor in burnout, according to new research from the University of Pennsylvania. Call-center employees were more likely to feel "emotionally exhausted" - a major component of burnout - if their supervisors stressed strict rules of telephone behavior, such as expecting workers to be nice no matter how rude the caller. While good phone manners are clearly important, companies can pay a high price for requiring perfection.

DEAR ABBY : I'm a freshman in college and have the sweetest boyfriend in the world. We've always been close and trusted each other. I always thought it was innocent and safe. Last weekend, though, things got a little heavy between us. We stopped before anything happened, but I felt dirty afterward. As I thought about it, I realized that, to me, it had seemed OK that our relationship was starting to take a more intimate turn. Is it wrong for me to think this way? I don't know how to bring up the "sex talk" with him without seeming desperate or like I'm rushing things.

Question: Two years ago, I got pregnant by my mostly platonic friend, T. After agonizing, I decided to keep the baby, whom I fully expected to raise by myself. To my surprise, T has been incredibly involved in caring for the kiddo, whom he loves dearly. Till now we have really made it work, and have never had a problem with boundaries. T and I are not romantic and probably never will be. In mid-2010, I started dating M. We are now exclusive and serious. Unlike most guys I've met, he did not take off running just because I have a toddler, and he is loving and supportive in every way. The problem is that T cannot stand M. His reasons are unspecific and unfair, but his feelings are very strong.

July 18, 2012 | Question: My relationship with a close family member has taken a turn for the worse. She suffered a tragic loss almost a year ag
The problem is that I feel that in her anger/grief at her situation, she is taking her feelings out on me — she's blamed me for being unsupportive and uncaring (I strongly feel that this is not true). I'm also not the first person she's written off for these reasons. She's so upset with me that she's now declined to be my maid of honor, less than three months before my wedding. Our family is devastated that "we can't get along. " I understand she has been through a lot, but I'm also hurt deeply by her treatment.

DEAR ABBY: I just found out that my girlfriend of nearly four years had an abortion when she was in high school. I overheard her during a conversation she was having with someone. I later asked her what was implied when the name of her ex-boyfriend from high school was brought up. She proceeded to tell me what had happened and then said, "I never told you that?" My reaction is feelings of disgust, betrayal and of having been lied to. Am I overreacting or are my feelings warranted?

Roma Mazza barely let herself cry when her daughter died. Tiny Jeanna Ann was buried on her third birthday. In those days, Mazza was too angry even to pray. But years later, she found a voice she didn't know she had. Or even needed. It came unexpectedly, and in what some might consider an unlikely setting - a poetry-writing workshop at a church day program for the homeless, the ill, the sick-at-heart, and anyone else who needs or wants a place to be with others. Under the title, "Shining Star," Mazza wrote: When I look up in the night And see a shining star I smile, for this tells me You are not too far. In a way, Fred Roberts wasn't surprised at all. "Every person has some poetry within," he said.

DEAR ABBY: I am a 20-year-old female who has recently come to terms with the fact that I am bisexual. My problem lies in the fact that I am strongly attracted to one of my best friends. I have liked her for several years, and she is a large part of the reason I discovered I was bisexual. I know she is straight and won't ever feel the same about me, but every time I'm around her, my romantic feelings for her start up again. It has reached the point where I'm considering avoiding her to stop these feelings.

Q: I have an issue that cost me my relationship. My girlfriend (now my ex) has a tattoo on her arm that says "Big John" with a heart drawn next to the letters. I was very upset and offended when I was out with her and it was visible. I was seeing her for approximately four years and everyday when I see her, I had to look at that stupid tattoo. We had many arguments and disagreements about this. She felt, if I was tired of looking at it, I should pay to have it removed or covered. I was really tired of looking at it. My suggestion to her was to at least wear a long-sleeved shirt to cover it. I am curious as to what you both think.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: My husband and I have been together for more than a decade and have two sweet, young children. After months of a nagging feeling and begging my husband to tell me the truth, he finally admitted this weekend that he has visited prostitutes and massage parlors for years. The last year has been a sad, miserable time. He was emotionally retreating out of shame and guilt. The quiet tension has taken a toll on us and our children. He can get therapy to heal his addiction, but it won't be with me by his side as his wife.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: My husband of 10 years recently came out to me as a transwoman. She says she is a lesbian and wants to stay and make it work. I am trying to be supportive, but I am feeling betrayed and weirded-out and pretty sure I'm not a lesbian. When I hide my confusion, she's ecstatically happy to be her real self; when I mention some aspect of my unhappiness, she goes very quiet. I feel sad and alone and confused, and I don't know how much of that to let show.

DEAR ABBY: I am the mother of a 13-year-old son, my only child. For the last 10 years, I have been living with mounting guilt over the fact that he doesn't have a sibling. It's not because my husband and I haven't tried, we have. But fertility issues took us down an empty road, and adoption discussions were just that - discussions. I can't tell you how many times our son has said he wished he had a sibling. Every time, it's like a knife in my heart, and the guilt surges back. I think about the future and how he will have no brother or sister to share life with or lean on when something happens to my husband or me. Although I have always felt blessed to have him, I can't escape these feelings.

You might not have guessed it from the cable-news reminders, but the second day of the Democratic National Convention on TV was about more than waiting for Bill Clinton to take the stage. Or leave it. Because before the former president - and aspiring first gentleman - could tell us that "in the spring of 1971, I met a girl," describing a courtship that wouldn't have been out of place in a John Hughes film while, yes, leaving out the most publicly painful chapters of their long marriage, Hillary Clinton had to make history and be nominated.

Adapted from a recent online discussion. Question: My husband agreed to have children even though he didn't really want them. He did not make any conditions, and I would not have granted any. We have two - one more than he agreed to (oops! both our faults) and one fewer than I want. Now, he thinks he should get priority in making every other family decision. Where we live. How often we move. How much we spend. Our 3-year-old has already lived in three states, but those moves were for our family's economic good.

Charles Busch - a man - is perhaps not the most obvious casting choice for a Rosalind Russell-type nun. But since he wrote The Divine Sister , a comedic homage to Hollywood nuns, opening at the Bucks County Playhouse, we're willing to overlook gender. Why is this play so special to you? I hadn't had a critical success in a while, so I forgot what was it like. One line from the Times review, it was quite lovely, said it was my "freshest, funniest work in years, perhaps decades.

CLEVELAND - Political Twitter was still aflame the morning after a sharp-eyed journalist pointed out similarities between Melania Trump's convention speech last night and the address Michelle Obama gave in at the Democratic National Convention in 2008. "Trump's laziness, incompetence and dishonesty in one," wrote the Vox staffer Matthew Yglesias. Users gleefully appended the hashtag #FamousMelaniaTrumpQuotes to rap lyrics and lines from famous speeches. In downtown Cleveland, more than 12 hours after the speech had aired, crowds milled on East Fourth Street as Andrea Mitchell discussed the purportedly pilfered paragraphs from MSNBC's mobile anchor desk.
