Yale University "punished" a student with a one-day suspension for attempted sexual assault. But it's not just Yale--campuses across the country are under fire for sweeping rape under the rug. Survivors are fighting back--sign here to join them.
Marketing pioneers like Apple, Southwest Airlines, and Kraft Foods have one important characteristic in common: creativity. Without a creative bent, your content marketing is just more white noise in a steady stream of subpar content.
I think that people are so quick to judge and point fingers as the products were consuming. As consumers, we know the risks of eating and drinking sugary foods and liquids. The fact is, an abundancy of alot of products can indeed hurt someone if injested enough.
I don't think its ethical to punish someone before they have had a fair trial. This "letter" that was issued isn't fair to those who are accused and may be victims themselves. Although i'm not necessarily protecting those who have commited the crime, im protecting those who have not and will get punished before a fair trial.

Inauguration of Bottling Plant Part of Planned $200 Million Investment in Myanmar Creating 22,000 Jobs Over Five Years
YANGON, Myanmar - Tuesday, June 4th 2013 [ME NewsWire]
(BUSINESS WIRE)-- For the first time in more than 60 years, Coca-Cola is being bottled in Myanmar. Muhtar Kent, Chairman and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company, today attended the ceremonial inauguration of a bottling plant in Crystal Springs, Hmawbi Township. The facility is the first to locally bottle Coca-Cola since the Company re-entered Myanmar last year. The historic event continues the long-term commitment of The Coca-Cola Company to generate a lasting positive impact by manufacturing, distributing, selling and hiring through its local business in Myanmar.
“As we grow as a local business in Myanmar, we are committed to creating economic value and building sustainable communities,” said Kent. “For the people of Myanmar, Coca-Cola embodies the optimism of a bright future, with the promise of better days and better lives ahead. We are privileged to be a part of their journey.”
After the lifting of sanctions, The Coca-Cola Company became one of the first U.S. companies to be awarded an investment permit under Myanmar’s new Foreign Investment Law. The inauguration of the Coca-Cola plant is a tangible demonstration of Coca-Cola’s planned $200 million investment over the next five years. The capital investment will increase production capacity, grow logistics including sales and distribution operations, and improve marketing and people capabilities.
Through its local presence, The Coca-Cola Company will contribute to Myanmar’s economic and social success by investing in local manufacturing, employing local people, engaging local suppliers and distributors and supporting community investment programs. This investment will stimulate job creation and Coca-Cola estimates that it will create more than 22,000 job opportunities across the entire value chain over the next five years.
At the inauguration, Kent was joined by Madeleine Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State and Chair of Albright Stonebridge Group, His Excellency U Myint Swe, Chief Minister of Yangon Region, officers of Pinya Manufacturing Co. Ltd, the local Coca-Cola bottling partner and other representatives of Coca-Cola in Myanmar.
“As a proud Myanmar citizen, I am honored to be part of this momentous occasion for Myanmar and Coca-Cola,” said Daw Shwe Cynn, Vice Chairman, Pinya Manufacturing Co. Ltd.
“We are excited to join our strong local expertise and passionate employees with the world’s number one brand and Coca-Cola’s world-class business capability. Together we have a positive future for our business, for our community and for the people of Myanmar,” said Mr Thureign Win, Vice Chairman Pinya Manufacturing Co. Ltd.
The Coca-Cola Company’s well-established global standards for corporate ethics are being incorporated into Coca-Cola’s business practices in Myanmar. This includes strict adherence to its global human and workplace rights policy, supplier guiding principles, code of business conduct and anti-bribery policies.
Apart from ethical economic development, The Coca-Cola Company aims to provide growth and development opportunities for the people of Myanmar. As part of this commitment, The Coca-Cola Foundation is working with Pact, a respected non-government organization, to implement Swan-Yi, a three-year program to empower nearly 25,000 Myanmar women focusing on financial literacy, entrepreneurship and business management. Since the program commenced in July 2012, 10,000 women have been empowered to start their own businesses.
Coca-Cola and Sprite in 425ml plastic bottles with uniquely scripted Myanmar labels are being produced in Myanmar, with local production of the iconic glass contour bottle (300ml) and aluminum can expected in the coming weeks. Completing the portfolio is imported Coca-Cola Zero (can). Coca-Cola aims to reach more than 100,000 outlets across the country in the next six months through increased production and distribution capacity, including a second existing plant in Hlaing Thar Yar.

A terrorist from east London described as the mastermind behind the ‘liquid bomb plot’ is trying to have his conviction quashed on human rights grounds.
Abdulla Ahmed Ali, from Walthamstow, was jailed in 2006 for his part in one of the largest terrorist plots ever discovered in Britain,
The discovery of his plan, which used a home-made hydrogen peroxide bomb disguised as a soft drink to blow up planes, led to urgent international restrictions on carrying fluids on aircraft.
Ali is taking his case to the European Court of Human Rights arguing his human rights were infringed, claiming the jury were prejudiced by the media coverage of his trial before he was sentenced to life in prison for conspiracy to murder.
He recruited friends and associates to act as suicide bombers and recorded martyrdom videos at a flat which was bugged by the security services.
The targets were seven flights from London to North America, which if successful could have exceeded the carnage of the September 11 attacks, his trial heard.
Chris Grayling, the Justice Secretary, told The Sunday Telegraph the case highlighted why there was an urgent need for reforms to human rights laws, and how the Strasbourg court was increasingly willing to interfere in Britain’s justice system.
“This yet a further example of why things cannot go on as they are”, he said.
“It is unacceptable to have a situation in which claims to the European Court of Human Rights are actually being used to undermine our justice system.
“Our justice system is one of the best in the world and the Strasbourg court has no business telling us how to run it.”
The European court cannot overturn Ali’s conviction but could pave the way a fresh appeal in the British courts.
Landen Gambill, a student at the University of North Carolina who was the victim of rape, faces being expelled from the college for publicly speaking out about
Deanna Moore's insight:
I don't its morally or ethically right for this women to be subjected to expolsion for publicly stating she was raped by a fellow student. The Dean has already had previous alligations for undermining the accusations from other students, so it it no surprise that she turned to the medias help to promote her story and cry for help.
Debate Rages Over Obama Definition of College Sexual Harassment TIME (blog) To hear the critics tell it, President Obama wants to restrict free speech at college, interfere with campus dating and “de-eroticize” university life.
“To ensure students are not discouraged from reporting harassment, the [Montana] agreement allows students to report when they have been subjected to unwelcome sexual conduct, and requires the University to evaluate whether that conduct created ‘a hostile environment,’” A direct quote from this article. This is response to the letter released from the Obama Administration to try andto encourage students to report what they believe to be sexual harassment on campus, regardless of whether the harassment is creating a hostile environment for students.
The Guardian College culture? An alcohol-fueled frenzy of sexual harassment The Guardian I have no idea what's going on, and neither do many of my fellow classmates, which doesn't stop them from passing out drunk.
It's quiet sad that no matter how hard you try to stop sexual assault, college and university parties are the likely place that they will happen. These peopl holding drinks are still kids, they have yet to see and experience the real world.
Im really hoping that this really unfolds positively in Africa. Coca Cola is taking he right measures to ensure that their products are remembered for the positives and not reflected based on the negatives
