When Celebrities Get Political, What’s A Reporter To Do?

Posted in Entertainment News

Nytimes.com 11/6/2014

"... But there is no denying that the celebrification of the story gave this some lift. It also presented some questions on how to approach the story . Do the same reporting techniques and rules that apply in, say, a battle involving elected officials, who are used to this kind of thing, apply as well in a fight with this decidedly rarified cast of civilians? ..."

Why Feminism Needs To End: It's Time To Work Towards Equality

Posted in Feminism

Huffingtonpost.com 11/5/2014

"... Women have faced and still face prejudice and inequality. Here's a fact, though: men do too. That men are not allowed to speak about the prejudice and inequality they face simply because they are men is just one ludicrous contradiction from feminists. That feminism apparently stands for 'equality' in order to be recognised as legitimate and politically correct, but does nothing to fight for the rights of separated fathers as equal parents, while advocating the social assumption that women are more emotionally bonded with their children based on gender stereotype, is just one transparent flaw, in the light of its own mission statement of equal rights. ..."

Men And Women Must Work To Stop Domestic Violence

Posted in Domestic Violence

Theranger.org 11/5/2014

"... The problem is viewed as a man’s problem; only he can stop domestic violence. But until we begin offering women equitable anger management classes — and offering men their own domestic violence shelter — not much is going to change. 

We need to teach women as well as men that violence is not the answer. ..."

"Washington Supreme Court Shifts Burden In Rape Cases"

Posted in Sexual Abuse

Cotwa.info 11/5/2014

"... Reversing what it called “incorrect and harmful” earlier rulings, the Washington Supreme Court said Thursday the state cannot put the burden on rape defendants to prove that an alleged victim consented — a decision critics said will make it harder to punish dangerous sex offenders. The court had previously ruled that when a defendant claimed the contact was consensual, it was up to the defendant to prove there was consent by a preponderance of the evidence. ..."

Villanovan.com 11/5/2014

"... The first male-only discussion of rape culture at Villanova took place on October 9, creating an open forum for a diverse group of college men to explore the constitution of male power and the notion of male sexuality that contributes to sexual violence. “There is something valuable for men to be able to talk about issues in a space that is safe,” Horner said. “And the biggest hurdle we have is ignorance. ..."

Posted in Mental Health

Medicaldaily.com 11/4/2014

"... Evidence has shown that regular physical activity can improve cognitive function and brain plasticity. However, research has been unclear in proving how much exercise is needed and how long these benefits can last for. A recent study conducted at the University of Adelaide in Australia suggests that one 30-minute session of vigorous exercise can lead to changes in the brain that make it more “plastic,” including improvements in memory and motor skill coordination. ..."

"... “No Shave November” is a trend where men put down their razors and don’t shave for the entire month of November. But now there’s a purpose behind that. The American Cancer Society wants to use this trend to raise awareness about prostate cancer. The idea of men not shaving their beards is a way to draw attention to the hair that many cancer patients typically lose. ..."
