  • Sexual Assault Reports Increase At Military Academies

    Reports of sexual assaults increased at two of the three military academies last year and an anonymous survey suggests sexual misconduct rose across the board at the schools, The Associated Press has learned. The new data underscore the challenge in stemming bad behavior by young people at the military college campuses, despite a slew of programs designed to prevent assaults, help victims and encourage them to come forward. The difficulties in some ways mirror those the larger military is struggling with amid revelations about Marines and other service members sharing nude photos on websites. Assault reports rose at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, and the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York, while dropping at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado. The Air Force decline was sharp, going to 32 last year from 49 in 2015, contributing to an overall decrease in the overall number of reported assaults at the academies. The total reported cases fell to 86 from 91 in 2015, according to details obtained by The Associated Press. Pentagon and military officials believe more people are reporting sexual assaults, which they see as a positive trend because it suggests students have more confidence in the system and greater willingness to seek help. But the anonymous survey results suggest more assaults and crime occurring. They showed more than 12 percent of women and nearly 2 percent of men saying they experienced unwanted sexual contact. In that survey, the largest increases in sexual misconduct were also at the Navy and Army academies. A vast majority of students said they didn't file a report on the assault because they didn't consider it serious enough. Many women said they took steps to avoid the perpetrator, while more than a third of the men said they confronted the person. Senior defense officials expressed disappointment. They were particularly concerned that more men and women said they experienced unwanted sexual contact. The rate two years ago was about 8 percent of women and 1 percent of men. "This is almost a new population of folks every four years and that makes it a little bit more difficult for the messages to build up and gather momentum," said Nate Galbreath, deputy director of the Pentagon's sexual assault prevention office. Officials struggled to identify a reason. They said some blame may fall on student leaders and how much they are willing to emphasize and enforce sexual assault prevention programs among peers. "Unless the students have a bit of accountability on their own, unless they take the charge themselves, (senior) leadership can really only take them so far," said Elizabeth Van Winkle, who is currently the assistant defense secretary for readiness. "If the students aren't taking the charge themselves, you won't make as much headway in this population." Galbreath said sexual assault prevention instruction may be getting lost amid the many messages about social behavior, including not drinking and driving, or texting and driving. The Pentagon, he said, is encouraging the academies to increase the amount of time they spend talking about how future leaders must foster a climate of dignity and respect. He said students should know that enforcing good conduct is something they will need to do as officers when they graduate and lead troops in combat. In recent months, military leaders have met to try and find what Galbreath called the "holy grail of prevention." One example, he said, would involving taking more to the students about when and how to intervene when they see a bad situation developing. Such scenarios include when they are in a bar drinking or in a workplace in which a boss is the problem. "What we want those folks to do at the academies is to find those things that seem to really be hallmark situations and help people be better scouts and identify those precursors earlier and also give them a wider range of things that they might be able to do to intervene," Galbreath said. Galbreath and Van Winkle said drinking remains a major concern, factoring in about 60 percent of incidents women cite and nearly half of those men cite. They said the academies have been putting alcohol programs in place, including some that require students to take a class before turning 21. Sexual harassment reports filed by students dropped at all three academies. The overall total fell to 10 last year from 28 in 2015. The anonymous survey showed roughly half of the women and slightly more than 10 percent of men saying they were sexually harassed, near the same level as the previous survey. The surveys are conducted every two years.

  • Is It Time For Glitter To Make Its Grand Exit?

    The world is quickly turning against single-use plastic straws and shopping bags. And according to LifeHacker, glitter may be next on the environmental chopping block. Turns out, the party decoration isn't so harmless after all. Most glitter is made of plastic, aluminum, and polyethylene terepthalate, which already isn’t a great sign. PET can be broken down into chemicals that are linked with hormone disruption in both humans and animals. Because of glitter’s small size, it’s considered a microplastic. Microplastics find their way into oceans. Fish then eat them, thereby making their way into the human food chain. Some scientists are calling for a ban, but others say there just isn’t enough research.

  • Study Confirms Beer Makes People More Sociable

    According to a new study, drinking beer does make you friendlier, happier and less inhibited. The study's lead researcher, Matthias Liechti, who is the head of psychopharmacology research at University Hospital in Basel, Switzerland, says, "We found that drinking a glass of beer helps people see happy faces faster, and enhances concern for positive emotional situations." Researchers came to their conclusion after studying two groups of 30 men and 30 women. Before and after alcohol consumption, both groups performed various tasks, including facial recognition as well as tests of their empathy and even sexual arousal.
