But education experts and historians aren’t remotely surprised. Women in the United States have earned more bachelor’s degrees than men every year since the mid-1980s—every year, in other words, that I’ve been alive. This particular gender gap hasn’t been breaking news for about 40 years. But the imbalance reveals a genuine shift in how men participate in education, the economy, and society. The world has changed dramatically, but the ideology of masculinity isn’t changing fast enough to keep up.

Brawl spilled from Kokomos to the pavement. Comanchero Canberra commander Pitasoni Ulavalu died last year after being stabbed by Frederick Tuifua. During the melee, Tuifua also stabbed another bikie, Zachary Robb, in the leg. The brawl was captured on the bar' s CCTV cameras and recorded on witnesses mobile phones.
