Betsy DeVos Plans to Change Campus Sexual Assault Policies Dek: Here’s what the education secretary had to say about Title IX and sexual assault. Photo Credit: Getty Images Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has announced that her department will begin reviewing some Obama-era regulations that require universities and colleges that receive federal funding to abide by Title IX rules which includes how the schools handle sexual assault allegations. To review: Title IX was enacted in 1972 as a means to ensure equal rights to male and female students and student athletes in an effort to thwart discrimination based on genderin athletics in course offerings or in cases of misconduct. Under Title IX in 2011 the Obama administration issued the Dear Colleague Letter which acts as a set of guidelines for how schools should address sexual assault claims in order to hold them accountable for providing a truly equal educational experience. Because reminder sexual assault on college campuses is a huge problem. Over 20 percent of femaleundergrads experience rape or sexual assault through physical force violence or incapacitation. And unfortunately there’s a long history of sweeping these issues under the rug and flat-out not providing justice when it’s due.Take Stanford swimmer Brock Turner who only spent three months behind bars(out of an already-low six-month sentence) last year for sexually assaulting a nearly unconscious woman near a dumpster behind a frat house. “The era of ‘rule by letter’ is over” DeVos said during her 20-minute speech to a crowd at George Mason University’s Law School campus in Arlington VA. She added that the current reporting process though well intentioned is a “failed system” that is “increasingly elaborate and confusing” and has done a “disservice to everyone involved.” By everyone she means both the survivors and those who’ve been accused of sexual assault. (Related: This Teen’s Photo Series Offers New Perspective On Trump’s Comments About Women) While DeVos did not report any cemented changes to Title IX she did present two possible approaches the Department of Education might explore to help replace the current policy. She says these potential changes are based on conversations she’s had with those impacted by certain Title IX policies which include representatives from a men’s rights group sexual assault survivors and representatives from educational institutions. The first possible approach would be to “launch a transparent notice and comment process to incorporate the insights of all parties” and the second would be to “seek public feedback and combine institutional knowledge professional expertise and the experiences of students to replace the current approach with a workable effective and fair system.” It’s unclear what either of those scenarios would look like in a real-life campus situation. (Related: New Nationwide Program Aims to Reduce Sexual Assault on College Campuses) DeVos spoke at great lengthabout protecting those who’ve been “wrongly accused”devoting roughly the same amount of time to both sides of this disturbing equation (victims and the accused) during her speech. Problem is just 2 to 10 percent of reported rapes turn out to be false claims according to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center. This type of talk makes it all the more difficult for women to speak up about their assaults which is hard enough as it is. As she addressed the listeners inside Founders Hall nearly two dozen people protested outside to protect the rights of those who have been and who will be sexually assaulted. “No survivor groups were invited to today’s decision” Jess Davidson managing director of End Rape on Campus who took part in the small protest told theWashington Post. “The fact that they’re not in the room is not reflective of who’s actually going to be impacted by the policy. We’re gathering outside the speech to show how important survivor voices are.” Video Story Image: ift.tt/2gLyFQp

4 Supergirl Spinoffs That Would Be Better Than Supergirl Sometimes Kara is the least interesting person on her show. Actually that's most of the time. While some people are hoping for a Superman themed spinoff I'm looking in another direction. What if there was spinoff based on one of the series regulars on the show. It may not happen now but every CW show gets a spinoff eventually. Arrow had Flash Flash had Legends Legends will probably have Booster Gold in a few seasons. It's only right Supergirl gets one.1. Alex Danvers Alex really doesn't get enough credit at all. She's a bad ass secret agent that takes down evil aliens. It's not like she just started this when Kara became Supergirl either. She's been doing this for years and has helped fight off countless invasions along with the DEO. On top of that she's also recently come out of the closet and started dating another bad ass who spent years as a loose cannon cop. Sure Kara has superpowers but a spinoff with Alex would be like Law and Order with aliens. She's also got that cool power armor she uses when fighting aliens sometimes. She's good. She needs a spin off.2. J'onn and M'Gann He's one of the last living Green Martians and the mothefucking Martian Manhunter. He's got decades of bad ass stories staring himself including some hard boiled detective stuff. On top of that he's got one serious case of PTSD with a side of survivor's guilt. She's a White Martian pretending to be a Green Martian after refusing to go along with the murderous ways of her people. She's constantly being tracked by people who want to kill her for treason and is haunted by those she attempted to save but couldn't. If the two of them couldn't have some awesome stories I don't know who.3. Jimmy Olson Jimmy has been living in the shadow of Superman for a long time. Then he lived in the shadow of Supergirl. He's tried to make it as his own hero and that has had some ups and downs. However we've seen through his interactions with other adults and kids that Jimmy is actually a really cool guy still trying to find his own place in the world. We could have a midlife crisis series with Jimmy as he moves to a new city and attempts to create a name for himself beyond friend of heroes. Or we've seen that Jimmy has created a bond with the Phorians who are just happy to see a planet with black people. We can see him and Marcus maneuver through the world and integrate the Phorians to the world.4. Cat Grant Cat is a monster and I mean that in a good way. She's built and empire and is always looking for her next move. I'd love to see a show focusing on how she came up in the world of media. We can do flashbacks as it relates to her current status of pending media domination. It wouldn't be very action oriented at all because Cat isn't about that life. But it would be a good boardroom drama. It'd basically be Iron Fist without ninjas.You can hear Darrell on theCP TimeandPowerbomb Jutsupodcasts. He also plays classic arcade games onThe Cabinet.

In Norse mythology, Ragnarök is a series of future events, including a great battle foretold to ultimately result in the death of a number of major figures (including the gods Odin, Thor, Týr, Freyr, Heimdallr, and Loki), the occurrence of various natural disasters, and the subsequent submersion of the world in water. Afterward, the world will resurface anew and fertile, the surviving and reborn gods will meet, and the world will be repopulated by two human survivors.
