OverviewChurch connections are no guarantee of the performance of an investment. Why is Utah dubbed "the capital of affinity fraud?" We'll discuss that with an FBI special agent and a former attorney with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Plus, girls are beating boys in the classroom and women are taking over in the workforce. What is happening to the males? Is society waging an unintended war against boys? We'll look for some answers, in this Sunday Edition. Segment 1

It happens over and over and over again -- so often, that Utah has the most unenviable reputation of being the fraud capital of the country. Bruce Lindsay discussed the problem with FBI Special Agent Michelle Pickens and Brent Baker, organizer of Utah's Fraud College.

Segment 2

For the first time in our nation's history, a generation of sons is maturing that will have less education than their fathers. At the same time, girls are graduating from college in record numbers. Women have also become a majority in the workforce. What's happening? Why are young men falling behind? Some observers believe the gap begins at an even younger age. Bruce Lindsay discussed the topic with Lois Collins, a reporter for the Deseret news who has researched the subject extensively, and David Derezotes, a professor of social work at the University of Utah.
