Educational psychologist Lori Day says the problem is growing worse with the increasing power of the Internet and today's hyperfeminine girl culture, so we're seeing more mean girls today and at younger ages. Here's where we as parents need to slam on the brakes. If the problem is getting worse and it's starting with girls as young as elementary school, what can we do about it? How can we avoid raising mean girls?
Derrick says there was no indication Julia's ex-boyfriend, 35-year-old Rodney Harvey, was dangerous. He says she had recently told Harvey that she had started dating again. She was with him for about three years, and called it off about six months ago.
Both families say they never could have seen this coming, although Harvey’s relatives say he’d been in a long battle with depression. They’ve set up a gofundme page to help cover his funeral expenses, and plan to donate some of the proceeds to programs that treat mental illness.
FAMILY planning has been a huge success. The global fertility rate has crashed, from 5.1 babies per woman in 1964 to 2.5 today. The average Bangladeshi woman can now expect to have about the same number of children as the average Frenchwoman. Only in sub-Saharan Africa are big families still in vogue, and even there they are shrinking. This is welcome. It suggests that women have gained more control over their bodies and that parents no longer reproduce frantically for fear that some of their children will die. Cutting the birth rate also leaves countries with fewer dependants per worker, at least for a time, making them better off.
But this triumph conceals a growing problem. For more and more couples, the greatest source of anguish is that they have fewer children than they want, or none at all. With Globescan, a consultancy, The Economist polled 19 countries, asking people how many children they would like and how many they expect to have. In every rich country we surveyed, couples expect to be less fertile than they would like, and many in developing countries suffer the same sorrow (see article). On average, Greeks think the ideal family contains 2.6 children but believe they will end up with 1.7.
The 25-year-old rapper has filed a police report against the Oscar-winning actor following what allegedly transpired at a Beverly Hills hotel Sunday evening, Banks' rep confirmed to E! News. Per TMZ, who was first with this news, Banks went to the Beverly Hills Police Department after demanding an apology from Crowe which she did not receive.
In a since deleted Facebook post, Banks claimed Crowe "called me a n----r, choked me, threw me out and spat at me" during a party in the actor's suite. However, as TMZ first reported, multiple eyewitness accounts state that Banks laughed at Crowe's music and called him and another attendee "boring , white men."
After another woman defended Crowe, Banks allegedly replied with, "You would love it if I broke my glass, stabbed you guys in the throat, and blood would squirt everywhere like some real Tarantino s--t" and allegedly added a few racial slurs. After reportedly taking her glass and cocking it back, as TMZ described, Crowe allegedly grabbed Banks in a "bear hug" and carried her out before calling security guards to remove her from the property. (Banks was reportedly a guest of RZA, who cast Crowe in a film he wrote and directed called The Man With the Iron Fists.) Raymani, who represents Banks, told E! News that Monday that she is still shaken and not yet ready to speak out, she will give her account of what happened and tell her plans to move forward in the next day or two. Raymani added that Banks is disgusted by fictitious reports that have surfaced and said she remains disappointed by the misconduct of individuals who she once admired.

How do you mediate this sort of conflict? As an officer, how would you determine what had really happened?

Billy Bush, a host on NBC's "TODAY" show, has been suspended "pending further review," per an internal memo sent to staff by senior vice president Noah Oppenheim, who oversees the broadcast.
Bush has come under fire for his involvement in a 2005 "Access Hollywood" videotape with Donald Trump that has sparked backlash against the Republican nominee. On the tape, Trump is heard boasting in lewd terms about a failed attempt to seduce a married women and talks about kissing and groping women without their consent, saying "when you're a star, they let you do it." Bush, then an anchor for the entertainment show, is heard on the tape laughing and joking along with Trump.
In his memo, Oppenheim wrote, "I know we've all been deeply troubled by the revelations of the past 48 hours. Let me be clear — there is simply no excuse for Billy's language and behavior on that tape. NBC has decided to suspend Billy, pending further review of this matter."
Bush apologized in a Friday evening personal statement after the video surfaced saying, "Obviously I'm embarrassed and ashamed. It's no excuse, but this happened 11 years ago — I was younger, less mature, and acted foolishly in playing along. I'm very sorry."
