The Delicious Life — where steak is medium rare and blogging is well-done In defense of the sanctimonious women's studies set. On Monday night, Donald Trump’s wife Melania touched hearts as she addressed the Republican National Convention, sharing the lessons she learned growing up as a black girl on the South Side of Chicago. As first spotted by journalist Jarrett Hill, Melania’s speech bore more than a passing resemblance to another speech at another convention about eight years ago — Michelle Obama’s 2008 address to the Democratic National Convention. The cribbed portion discussed the values that Michelle and Melania apparently share, including working hard for what you want in life and keeping your word.

College Fed: Quick, Easy and Delicious Recipes Why Schools—Not Law Enforcement—Should Investigate Campus Rapes There’s one question about campus rape that comes up again and again: Why isn’t the crime handled exclusively by law enforcement? In a perfect world, the legal system would effectively arbitrate this crime, but given law enforcement’s dismal record on sex crimes, schools have no choice but to adjudicate campus rapes in order to comply with federal Title IX law. Law enforcement is not a viable solution to campus rape because police do a terrible job of holding rapists accountable. According to a recent analysis of Department of Justice data, only 3 percent of all rapists—not just campus rapists—will ever spend a day in jail. Only 40 percent of all rapes are reported to police, and of those, only 10 percent will lead to a felony conviction with slightly fewer seeing the inside of a jail cell. The numbers are no better when it comes to law enforcement’s handling of campus sex crimes. Law enforcement is hampered in prosecuting rape because this crime is rarely witnessed by a third party.
Handle the Heat - Homemade meals and delightful indulgences beautiful agony - facettes de la petite mort about Beautiful Agony Showreel Beautiful Agony began as a multimedia experiment, to test a hypothesis that eroticism in human imagery rests not in naked flesh and sexual illustration, but engagement with the face. We wondered whether film of a genuine, unscripted, natural orgasm - showing only the face - could succeed where the most visceral mainstream pornography fails, and that is, to actually turn us on. Yes, Agony is here to turn you on. But it will do much more than that. Considering porn has had a few thousand years to evolve, alongside other streams of culture - you'd expect it to be refined and sophisticated. Not taken seriously as a valuable cultural genre, the porn industry has lacked real production talent and been, for the most part, exploited for short term profit. So in 2003 we started Agony, kicked off with a handful of videos made by curious friends who liked our theory. But without your help, Agony is in danger of extinction.
