GUEST BLOG: Ending the “Red Zone” in PA Starts with Us

first_img By: Delilah Rumburg, Chief Executive Officer, Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Improve awareness, prevention, reporting, and response systems in schools, colleges and universities to better serve all students.Remove/reduce barriers that prevent survivors from reporting and/or accessing vital resources by creating a more consistent, empowering reporting process for student survivors of gender based violence.Demonstrate significant, proactive, and sustainable leadership to change campus culture by challenging Pennsylvania’s education leaders – including college and university presidents, superintendents – as well as students, teachers, faculty, staff, families, and communities to pledge to improve their institutions’ climate.The truth is there is no time to waste when it comes to this issue. May 24, 2016center_img College can be a dangerous time for risk of sexual assault. Research suggests that approximately 25% of college women, 3% of college men and up to 35% of students who identify as LGBTQ will experience sexual assault during their undergraduate years (Krebs et al., 2016). Many campus activists even refer to the first few weeks of college as the “Red Zone”—a time when risk of violence skyrockets. Factors like substance use, fear of retaliation, and social pressures on campus have contributed to low reporting rates, and have allowed campus sexual assault crimes to be largely ignored by schools and communities (Sable et al., 2006).Pennsylvania is home to nearly 700,000 undergraduate college students (U.S. Census Bureau, 2014). Our state ranks fourth in the country for having the highest number of colleges and universities (Pennsylvania State Data Center, 2016). The impact of campus sexual violence is of particular concern in the Commonwealth.The Campus Climate Survey Validation Study (CCSVS) found that just the climate around sexual assault makes a difference. When students perceive that their school won’t tolerate sexual assault, those schools are shown to actually have fewer incidences of SA. What’s more, schools that make this issue a priority send the message that they are supportive of survivors. Students may feel more comfortable reporting or getting help after an assault.Taking the It’s On Us Pledge is a first, valuable step that any person can take in ending this widespread issue. With only a minute of your time and an email address, you can be a part of the solution. If you are a part of a campus community, consider instituting your own campus-specific It’s On Us Campaign. Doing so can peak interest in learning more about prevention & getting students and administration involved. Your voice helps to make campus sexual assault a community-wide issue—as it should be. Sexual violence impacts every member of the community and has no place in an educational institution.We love that Governor Wolf is leading the charge with the first statewide It’s On Us campaign. It sets great example for the Commonwealth and the nation. Join us in taking the pledge and eradicating campus sexual assault once and for all. GUEST BLOG: Ending the “Red Zone” in PA Starts with Us It’s On Us PA,  The Blog The PA Coalition Against Rape (PCAR) is proud that our state is the first in the nation to launch a statewide It’s On Us Campaign. The campaign calls on every community member to take a personal and public pledge to help promote awareness and prevention of sexual violence on college campuses.Specifically, the campaign that Governor Wolf launched in January seeks to:last_img read more

British raider Debt strikes

first_imgDandy Nicholls-trained British raider Sovereign Debt was a dominant winner of the Dubai Duty Free Full Of Surprises Celebration Stakes at the Curragh. The six-year-old was a 9-2 shot having run with credit in Ireland on his last couple of starts, finishing fifth in the Gladness at this track and third in the Ballycorus Stakes at Leopardstown. Sovereign Debt was positioned close to the speed from the off by Chris Hayes and after being sent on from the home turn, quickly put the race to bed. Press Associationcenter_img The grey was kept up to his work in the final furlong and came home four and three-quarter lengths clear of Flight Risk, with the front-running Fastnet Mist third. War Envoy was the odds-on favourite after winning the Britannia Stakes at Royal Ascot nine days ago, but although he made late headway, he failed to land a telling blow. Nicholls said: “He’s had a lot of traffic problems in the past and I just told Chris to make up his own mind on how to ride him. He gave him a great ride and maybe that’s the best way to ride him. “I brought him over myself and he travelled over really well, ate up everything and he was so relaxed. “He’ll come back here again and deserves to go for all those races now. “He’ll go to Dubai at the end of the year.” last_img read more

Aaron Rodgers ‘easier to sack’ than most quarterbacks, says Bengals defender

first_img Falcons’ Julio Jones says he won’t hold out for new contract Taking a sack is certainly not the worst outcome on a pass play. Interceptions are worse, and Rodgers has been intercepted on only 1.5 percent of his career pass attempts, the lowest percentage in NFL history. And while it might look good for a QB to avoid a sack by scrambling for three yards, how often does Rodgers wait that extra split second to spot a receiver open downfield for a 20-yard reception?The Packers yielded 53 sacks last year, tied for third-most in the NFL, but Rodgers was hobbled by a bad knee. However, they’ve ranked in the top five in most sacks allowed three of the past four seasons.As for Lawson, he’s returning from a torn ACL suffered last season in Week 8. “Honestly, I think it’s easier to sack Aaron Rodgers than most quarterbacks,” Lawson said (via NFL Media). “He sits there, and he pats the ball. At the same time, sacking him don’t mean nothing if you don’t do it for four quarters. You know, he came back against us. So, I mean, he’s an easier quarterback for me to sack personally, because he sits there, and he probably gets eight to 10 yards in the pocket.”He’s got a great left tackle in [David Bakhtiari]. So, he just sits there, he waits, he waits, getting that read. When he gets sacked, he doesn’t get flustered. I only saw him get frustrated maybe one time when I did sack him, which was the third and a half sack that [was called off by a Bengals penalty].” Related News NFL suspends Malik McDowell after he was caught on tape wrestling cop, report sayscenter_img That may be true in Lawson’s case — he sacked the Packers quarterback 2.5 times as a rookie in the third game of the 2017 season, marking more than one quarter of his 9.5 career sacks. Aaron Rodgers is arguably one of the greatest quarterbacks of this generation, maybe ever, so to hear someone point out a potential flaw in his game is almost sacrilegious in football terms.But Bengals defensive end Carl Lawson did just that Monday on NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football,” saying the seven-time Pro Bowl quarterback is “easier” to sack than other quarterbacks.last_img read more
