February 14, 2007 | David M. Buss, DAVID M. BUSS is a professor of psychology at the University of Texas and author of "The Dangerous Passion: Why Jealousy Is as Necessary as Love and Sex."
WE BECAME ODDLY ENERGIZED when Lisa Marie Nowak, an astronaut with a sterling record, drove nearly 1,000 miles to attack Colleen Shipman, a woman Nowak believed was a rival for the man she loved. Nowak was charged with attempted murder, and her alleged "kill kit" contained a knife, 3 feet of hose, garbage bags, a BB gun and, most ominously, a steel mallet. Jealousy is possibly the most destructive emotion housed in the human brain.

Sipping a to-go herbal tea in the back of a hotel bar not far from the Fox studio lot in Century City, Sarah Paulson is blond, smiling and thoroughly modern. In the slavery-era drama "12 Years a Slave," her hair and her manner are darker in the role of Mistress Epps, wife of Michael Fassbender's demented slave owner Edwin Epps. It's a role that requires the actress to explore jealousy, sex and contempt - as well as feeling pain and doling some out. Paulson, who also stars on the FX network's "American Horror Story: Coven," couldn't be more delighted or honored.

Dear Amy: I recently remarried after 16 years of a first marriage, which ended because of an act of infidelity by my former wife. I stayed in that marriage too long because of my overwhelming love for my kids. My current wife and I have only been married a little more than a year, and while I knew she had trust and self-esteem issues, I never imagined what I would have to endure. My wife is enormously jealous and accuses me of improprieties in our marriage, even though I have gone out of my way to show her how much I love her and that she can trust me. I have given her all my passwords to all my e-mail accounts and access to my company computer and cellphone.

LONDON — In the end, the most hyped Olympian was also the most alone. Lolo Jones finished the 100-meter hurdles in a desperate lunge, stood by the finish line staring up at an Olympic Stadium scoreboard that registered a fourth-place finish and then slowly walked away. She didn't stick around to congratulate the two medal-winning Americans, both of whom had questioned her enormous pre-race publicity. She didn't hang out to schmooze with fans who have increasingly questioned her sincerity.

A man accused of killing his wife, model Jasmine Fiore, did not acknowledge the killing in a suicide note left on his laptop computer but expressed his love for her repeatedly and wrote that he was jealous and angry, police said. Buena Park Police Sgt. Bill Kohanek on Tuesday said the 1 1/2 -page "suicide letter" was recovered by investigators from Ryan Jenkins' laptop after the former VH1 reality show contestant hanged himself in a Canadian motel room not far from the border after a pursuit by U.S. authorities.

So, your significant other takes you for granted - and you think you might want to make him a little bit jealous, just to send a message.  One way to do it would be to spend an hour with an ex. If you really want to make him green with envy, make sure there's a meal involved.  At least, that's what new research, published Wednesday in the journal PLoS One , seems to suggest. “Do people believe that sharing food might involve sharing more than just food?” asked coauthors Kevin Kniffin and Brian Wansink, both of Cornell University, in the report.

In our culture, "jealousy marks you as some sort of emotional nerd," says Gordon Clanton, who teaches sociology at San Diego State University and who wrote the classic textbook on the topic. He views jealousy as "a warning system, with social usefulness. It lets people know that relationships they value are threatened or perceived to be threatened."

He's won the Nobel Peace Prize. He's been hailed as a pioneering economist who brought hope to millions of poor Bangladeshis. And he's adored by the international community. Maybe Muhammad Yunus was just a bit too popular. Bangladeshis have a word for it: hingsha , meaning jealousy or vindictiveness. Analysts say hingsha is a hallmark of national politics, and they say it may have played a role in Yunus' ouster last week from Grameen Bank, the microfinance institution he founded nearly 30 years ago. "This is hingsha ," said Golam Hossain, a professor with Dhaka's Jahangirnagar University.

Handsomely mounted, literate, emotionally sophisticated, "The End of the Affair" has everything a period romance should have, including a score by Michael Nyman and passionate performances by stars Ralph Fiennes and Julianne Moore. But to call this brooding, complex film simply a romance is to miss a good bit of the point. "Affair" comes by its troubling qualities honestly, both from the 1951 Graham Greene novel it's based on and the moody sensibility of writer-director Neil Jordan, whose previous films include "The Butcher Boy," "Interview With the Vampire," "Mona Lisa" and "The Crying Game."

Never mind the perils of cyber-stalking, cyber-bullying and posting photos that could endanger your future job prospects: Facebook could be ruining your relationship and driving you toward compulsively jealous behavior. Social psychologists from the University of Guelph in Canada queried college students who were in romantic relationships about their Facebook use. Their preliminary findings, described in the journal CyberPsychology & Behavior, suggest that rather than enhancing communication between romantic partners, Facebook use may be fueling wild flights of jealous investigation, as users in relationships perceive hints of potential infidelity and then scramble to find evidence of a partner's unfaithful thoughts or behavior.

Prosecutors in the murder trial of former LAPD Det. Stephanie Lazarus made their closing argument Monday, and Lazarus' attorney delivered much of his, leaving jurors to mull over conflicting interpretations of testimony and evidence on which the detective's fate hinges. Deputy Dist. Atty. Paul Nunez led the jury steadily through what he called "the overwhelming evidence of guilt" against Lazarus, who is on trial in the 1986 beating and shooting death of Sherri Rasmussen, the wife of a man Lazarus had dated.

The Los Angeles Unified School District has declined to release to The Times the names of teachers and their scores indicating their effectiveness in raising student performance. The nation's second-largest school district calculated confidential "academic growth over time" ratings for about 12,000 math and English teachers last year. This fall, the district issued new ones to about 14,000 instructors that can also be viewed by their principals. The scores are based on an analysis of a student's performance on several years of standardized tests and estimate a teacher's role in raising or lowering student achievement.

The hunters kneel before a tiny altar of fresh persimmons, paper cups of alcohol and burning incense, bowing three times to solicit permission from the mountain god to enter the forest. Moments later, they're scaling a slippery hillside, far from any trail, with the sure footing of mountain Sherpas. Carrying binoculars, wielding their long scythes as walking sticks, Seo Min-seok and a partner scan the forest floor for secret untrammeled places. Soon, under the cross of two felled trees, they encounter a small plant, its leaves a telltale late-autumn yellow.

Dread, in fiction, can be a magnificent thing. Joyce Carol Oates, in her latest collection of short stories, "Give Me Your Heart," spends a great deal of time conjuring dread, that conviction that calamity lies just beyond the end of the sentence, possibly the next paragraph. It's the compulsion to know the impending catastrophe that propels the reader forward through these 10 tales ? a voyeuristic desire to watch the deeply flawed (or at least unreliable) narrators in these stories march toward a certain, sorry fate.

Police spokesman Dave Abrecht said Friday that identities of the victims and the husband, who committed suicide, were still being withheld pending notification of next of kin.
