At that moment, Walter was unaware of who the dead man was. Meanwhile, in Texas, Claire sat in an uncomfortable chair across from Veejay Singh and worked to establish rapport. Singh, like Charlie, moved easily between pop culture and more serious arenas. His subject specialty was the biology of attraction—the whys and hows of picking a mate. Men like long hair and big breasts, we assume. But is that really the case and, if so, why?
He compared these ratios with estrogen levels and fertility data, and through his findings he promoted his idea that men are hardwired to seek a certain shape. More specifically, his research showed that women with a. These women have the best odds of conceiving a baby, so men intuitively seek them out to reproduce.
The famous hourglass figure, in other words, is not just a fashion trend but an important step in evolution. Singh was tall, like Charlie, and lean. He dressed simply—dark slacks, V-neck sweater—but his clothing flattered him. He became animated when he spoke about his work, punctuating his sentences with wide sweeps of his arms, and short bursts of laughter that were intended, Claire thought, to disarm her. She wondered if he slept with his students.
The book was why Claire was sitting here, why Misconstrued deemed his measurements worthy of print. That Claire was writing pop stories for glossy female magazines at all had everything to do with Charlie. He had discouraged her own literary ambition.
Then the temporary adjustment in her focus became what she did permanently. Charlie worked, and Claire found things to do. He jumped up, then motioned for Claire to stand so he might measure and calculate her own ratio, her own potential for reproduction. His hands felt warm through her blouse.
He had a tantalizing mess of dark, thick hair; a heady shot of cologne hit her nose.

Somewhere along her nine years with Charlie, certain interest had, well. Singh mumbled a number and jotted it on his notepad. A stack of transparencies lay on his desk—anatomically correct line drawings of well-ratioed women: Eva Mendes, Marilyn Monroe, Raquel Welch.

It signals health and fertility. This is the true essence of desire. Claire looked down at her own small breasts. She wanted to believe him. She wondered if there was a Mrs. Singh and, if so, what size her breasts were. He jotted her measurements on a notepad and did the math. The buzzing persisted. Singh took in the spectacle. Byrne, this is Officer Callan from the Nineteenth Precinct. I need you to contact me immediately, your husband. Oh fuck.
Sasha was fourth. She was sobbing and Claire could hear ice hitting glass. They dropped a Giacometti on Charlie. Turn the TV on! Claire set her phone on the desk and looked at Singh shuffling paper stacks. Singh took a step toward her then stopped. He lifted his arms up and dropped them. There were an awkward few moments of silence.

It also found service men and women between the ages of 18 and 37 showed higher rates of depressive disorders than the broader Australian community. The report also revealed that many ADF members and veterans had not sought assistance because they feared doing so may have restricted their career opportunities. That's a notion Gwen is familiar with. Peter only sought professional help once. He hid his mental health struggle from the Army, afraid he might lose his job if they knew. And while Gwen noted there was no tangible reason for that fear, that didn't make it any less real for Peter. Gwen says the key to change is encouraging the idea that mental health issues can — and do — affect all types of people.
