Utah State says it didn't cover up wrongdoing, will make changes to how it handles sexual assault 25.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Utah State University is vowing to improve its relationship with local law enforcement after four women reported being sexually assaulted by the same student to police in 2015.

Here's Why We Have No Clue How Often Rape Is Happening in the US 24.8.2016 Mother Jones
Federal agencies don't have a uniform definition of sexual assault, and that has led to dramatically different estimates on the frequency of sexual violence in the United States, according to a new report from the Government Accountability Office. Because agencies have different definitions of rape, government estimates for cases of sexual assault and violence can vary widely. In 2011, for instance, different federal agency estimates ranged from 244,190 cases of rape or sexual-assault victimizations to 1.92 million victims of rape or attempted rape. The agencies also do not make it clear to the public how they define sexual assault. That's a problem, the report notes, because data is "critical" for both policymakers and the public to understand and address these crimes. "The bottom line is that this can all lead to confusion," said Gretta Goodwin, acting director of the GAO. "We are just asking that there be more transparency about the data and what it means." Currently, four federal agencies—the ...

I Spent Five Years With Some of Trump's Biggest Fans. Here's What They Won't Tell You. 23.8.2016 Mother Jones
In a framed photo of herself taken in 2007, Sharon Galicia stands, fresh-faced and beaming, beside first lady Laura Bush at a Washington, DC, luncheon, thrilled to be honored as an outstanding GOP volunteer. We are in her office in the Aflac insurance company in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and Sharon is heading out to pitch medical and life insurance to workers in a bleak corridor of industrial plants servicing the rigs in the Gulf of Mexico and petrochemical plants that make the plastic feedstock for everything from car seats to bubble gum. After a 20-minute drive along flat terrain, we pull into a dirt parking lot beside a red truck with a decal of the Statue of Liberty, her raised arm holding an M-16. A man waves from the entrance to an enormous warehouse. Warm, attractive, well-spoken, Sharon has sold a lot of insurance policies around here and made friends along the way.

This week in the war on workers: Black Lives Matter and the NAACP say no to more charter schools 21.8.2016 Daily Kos
Here’s some important pushback on the efforts of the corporate education policy world to brand its privatization agenda as a civil rights issue: A few weeks ago, the Movement for Black Lives, the network that also includes Black Lives Matter organizers, released its first-ever  policy agenda . Among the organization's six demands and dozens of policy recommendations was a bold education-related stance: a moratorium on both charter schools and public school closures. Charters, the agenda argues, represent a shift of public funds and control over to private entities.  Along with  "an end to the privatization of education," the Movement for Black Lives organizers are  demanding  increased investments in traditional community schools and the health and social services they provide. The statement came several weeks after another civil rights titan, the NAACP, also passed a  resolution , calling for a freeze on the growth of charter schools. The NAACP had equated charters with privatization in previous ...
