The Ongoing Debate About Sexual Assault on College Campuses

Education Secretary Betsy DeVos spoke recently at George Mason University about coming changes to campus sexual-assault policies.

Absolute in Bret Stephens’s column about Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s adapting the guidelines governing allegations of campus sex assault under Title IX is the idea that a dominance of male college students accused of rape are rather victims themselves.

Are American college women so hooked upon quarrel that they would subject themselves to public inspection, the approbation of colleagues and the possibility that they might be proved untrue, just to destroy someone’s life cavalierly?

Mr Stephens writes that “real numbers are all but impossible to come by.” That’s because most college sexual assaults go unreported and undocumented. Generations of women have mostly kept silent about such things, and now Ms DeVos is set to silence the few who would dare to speak up.

Whether one agrees with a preponderance-of-evidence standard turns largely on whether one thinks that women are more likely to lie about sexual abuse, or men tend to lie about consent.

If 90% of represented accused men get excused, as Mr Stephens pens, it seems that a lot of uncertainty is being raised, playing on an age-old stereotype that women cannot be trusted to tell the truth.

Sexual abuse cases are difficult, but in a world still dominated by men, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos shouldn’t look for an easy solution in changing the common pattern to one that will discourage even more women from coming forward.

The American AUW analysed 2015 DOE data and determined that 89% of campuses had zero reported rapes, a number contradicting years of research and survivor and student stories.

That finding shows not that sexual violence isn’t prevalent, but rather that gaps may exist in reporting — both to schools and the Education Department. Study after study on the occurrence of sexual violence supports such a conclusion, meaning that more sexual abuse occurs than is reported.

Iphone Introduces The iPhone X

“iPhone X is the future of the smartphone. It packed with new technologies, like the innovative TrueDepth camera system, Super Retina display and super fast A11 Bionic chip with neural engine,”
“iPhone X enables fluid new user experiences — from unlocking your iPhone with Face Recognition to playing immersive AR games to sharing Animoji in Messages — it is the beginning of the next ten years for iPhone.”

The iPhone X is presenting Brilliance to the edges. By Applying innovative folding and circuit stacking technology, the OLED panel follows the curves of the device into the farthest reaches of the corners. Then it uses a process called sub pixel anti-aliasing to tune individual pixels for smooth, distortion-free edges.

iPhone 8 ‘X Edition’ concept with MacBook Pro-like Touch Bar …

With the addition of this near-full-face display, we lose the home button completely and Touch ID with it. That means you can no longer log in with your fingerprint; instead, you use your face and a swiping gesture. Swiping to unlock is back, and I’m honestly not a fan.

What could be more natural than a touch? A look. That was the insight behind Face ID, a robust and secure authentication system that’s even more convenient than Touch ID. It makes unlocking and paying fast, easy, and intuitive.

iOS remains the best smartphone operating system and the iPhone’s biggest advantage over its competition. Apple’s operating system is the only smartphone platform that comes with consistent, guaranteed updates. And it’s the only one that routinely brings cutting-edge features, like augmented reality, to older phones.

The stainless steel band that wraps around and reinforces iPhone X is a special Apple-designed alloy that’s both durable and purer, and it polishes beautifully. For space grey finish, we use a process called physical vapour deposition to precisely match the colour of the stainless steel band to that of the glass.

With Face ID, iPhone X unlocks when you’re looking at it. It’s designed to resist spoofing by photos or masks. Your facial map is encrypted and protected by the Secure Enclave. And authentication happens instantly on the device, not in the cloud.

Design: More significantly, Apple has given the iPhone X a major makeover. It’s ditched the Home button at the bottom of the device, favouring the use of facial recognition technology (called FaceID) for unlocking rather than its TouchID fingerprint system. The firm says there is a one-in-a-million chance that someone else’s face will be able to unlock a device. There are around 7.4 billion people on Earth. FaceID can also be used to pay for products using Apple Pay.

We’ve always intended iPhone to be a truly wireless device, free from charging cables and headphone cords. With a glass back and an embedded wireless charging system, iPhone X designed for a wireless future.4

Instead, the iPhone X has a nearly bezel-free design with the screen covering almost the entire front of the phone. The designers made room for the front-facing selfie camera and facial recognition; the screen has a slight notch that indents at the top. It has a dual-lens rear facing the camera and will come in the colours silver and space grey.

The surprising new strategy of pro-Russia bots

Coordinated groups of Twitter bots pushing pro-Russian propaganda have developed an odd but occasionally effective strategy – retweeting messages that the bot-makers disagree with and flooding their enemies with followers.
Brian Krebs is an investigative journalist with a big social media following. But even he was surprised when one of his tweets was retweeted thousands of times:
