Group Builds Novel Sexual Assault Reporting System -- By Talking To Survivors 22.10.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
A nonprofit company says it has designed an online system for reporting sexual assaults, for use by colleges and universities. What it has going for it that others don't: It was created with the input of rape survivors and student activists. The third-party sexual assault reporting system is called Callisto , and was designed by nonprofit Sexual Health Innovations for use by higher education institutions. Callisto allows a victim to file an incident report online, to "receive a clear explanation of their reporting options, and then either directly submit the report to their chosen authority or save it as a time-stamped record," the company said in its description. Sexual Health Innovations, whose advisory board includes sexual assault survivors and activists, public health officials and college professors, set up a Crowdrise fundraising page this week to get the Callisto service off the ground. As of Tuesday afternoon, the page had collected $1,250 toward a goal of $10,000, but organizers say they need ...

Nearly 1,000 Students, Faculty Demand Miami University Cancel George Will Speech 21.10.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
Miami University of Ohio has no plans to cancel a speech by Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist George Will, despite protests over the Washington Post writer's comments about campus sexual assault. Will is scheduled to speak at the university's Farmer School of Business on Wednesday. Nearly 1,000 students, faculty and alumni of Miami have signed an open letter opposing the decision to invite Will. The letter argues that his appearance sends the wrong message about "the tolerance of rape culture and predatory sexual behavior at Miami University." In June, Will wrote that being a victim on a college campus had become a "coveted status," using sexual assault survivors as an example. His column placed the words "sexual assault" and "survivors" in quotations, which many interpreted as him questioning the validity of such attacks. Will's column sparked outrage, especially among women who had experienced sexual violence. In the face of fierce backlash from activists, sexual assault survivors, U.S. Senators, ...

Pacific Islanders Blockade World's Largest Coal Port To Protest Rising Seas (PHOTOS) 21.10.2014 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
Last week a group of Pacific islanders and Australians worked together to form a flotilla of kayaks and traditional canoes to blockade the world's largest coal port in Newcastle, Australia. The action was led by a group of Pacific Climate Warriors , who traveled from their home countries to protest coal's contribution to climate change and the threat of sea level rise to their low-lying islands. The group targeted Australia in particular because it is the second-largest coal exporter in the world and plans to expand production. Just this summer, the government approved a project that will lead to the creation of the country's largest ever coal mine . According to 350.org, hundreds of people participated in the blockade, including representatives from 12 Pacific island nations. They were successful at keeping at least two coal ships from passing through the port. Mikaele Maiava from Tokelau told 350.org, "It is very important for us to take direct actions against climate change because it is threatening ...
