Hmm, many of these "jokes" are from a show I watch, which makes me wonder how quickly even someone like me, who considers herself vigilant, can become immune.

So, How Should Colleges Actually Prevent Sexual Assault?

So, How Should Colleges Actually Prevent Sexual Assault? | Things happening now | Scoop.it
Drinking puts you at risk of sexual assault... if you are around a rapist. Of course, it's easy to focus on alcohol as a cause of the campus rape epidemic. Doing so is manageable, it's easy to deal with, and it's gives us a concrete issue to tackle — which is comforting on some level.

It's funny (peculiar) that we're having this conversation again. The Yes means Yes campaign that flourished on liberal arts campuses in the 90s was pretty explicit in its message: that before engaging in any sexual act, both parties should have to verbally consent. Why is that so difficult?

What Happens To Our Brains When We Exercise And How It Makes Us Happier

What Happens To Our Brains When We Exercise And How It Makes Us Happier | Things happening now | Scoop.it

Most of us are aware of what happens to the body when we exercise. We build more muscle or more stamina. We feel how daily activities like climbing stairs becomes easier if we exercise regularly. When it comes to our brain and mood though, the connection isn’t so clear.

 

A recent study from Penn State university shed some light on the matter and the results are more than surprising.

Kaitlin Racacho's insight:

When you exercise it releasees endorphins, and endorphins make you happy and happy people just don't kill their husbands.

 

This article made me rethink on how I felt after exercising, more than just being happier but being able to learn better and sleep better. The way you train your brain is what will help it work the right way longer its the same way your body works so if you keep a happy mind and body everything will flow.

19 Creative Ways the World Is Standing Up to Putin to Fight for LGBT Rights | Things happening now | Scoop.it

Kaitlin Racacho's insight:

I love how so many people are see this as a problem and wanting to change the world view on how the LGBT is not a base thing but a good one. The things that are happening in Russia should not be tolerated and people are thanking a stand against it.
