Perspective is So Important - Rape

Last year the Dept of Justice, using data that was gathered by the FBI and from data gathered by direct polling, came up with a report comparing the enrolled college student with non-students, regarding rape. The the result was a graph in the report which seems to show that students currently going to college on University campus were safer from the threat of rape than those who were non-students of the same age group. Here is the the graph.

You will notice that college students are less likely to be raped -- according to this chart -- over the last few years, except for 2012-2013, which were the years we have been talking about in the media and public forum. 

In the same report, there is another chart which shows more information on the proclivity and variations of events around the subject of attacks and rape. Here is that chart.

According to this chart, college students, compared to non-students are more likely to be threatened with rape, sexually assaulted, and to be attacked -- though more likely to get away -- And this is Safer? 
This report leads me to conclude that the Dept of Justice operates under a new and more open minded definition of the word Safe, which I was not previously aware.
It is also suggested that this report debunks the 1-5 rape frequency. This 1-5 frequency is misquoted as a 1-5 college students will be raped -- I'm not sure who started the misquoting, but the original quote comes from the CDC. The Dept of Justice report does not debunk the original quote at all, though it does show that if we continue to keep a strong eye on the situation and continue to press forward with education, and continue to focus on the rapist rather than the victim, things will get much better.

The Lies of Dr. Peter McCullough

Dr. Peter McCullough Anti-vaccine cardiologist was sued, and now risks loss of board certification . Baylor Scott & White Health is seeking $1 million in a lawsuit filed in July against  Peter A. McCullough, M.D., MPH   for allegedly spreading COVID-19 misinformation under the Baylor name in media interviews. The lawsuit alleges that, since leaving Baylor, he “has conducted dozens, if not hundreds, of interviews in print and video appearances” while appearing to hold titles related to Baylor. In February, McCullough left his position as vice chief of internal medicine for cardiovascular disease at Baylor University Medical Center and agreed “not to state that he is employed by or affiliated” with the health system.

The Bleeding Corpse

The Bleeding Corpse:  Your MC comes down the wooden stairway, that was old when he was born, and into the cellar of the house. He descends into musty smells, feeling layers of dust and dank as he submerges into the thick air. A single naked, low watt light-bulb hangs over the laundry area to the right, On the smooth cement floor inside that lonely pool of light lays the body of Mrs. Katt. Blood is dripping out of her eyes like tears... Your character better rush to the phone and call Emergency help. Now! Go! Because Mrs. Katt is still alive!

We are currently inside the grips of a pandemic that has been going on in the U.S. since January of 2020. Right now we are in the Delta phase , and heading toward a yet to be understood Mu phase .   Yesterday, ~500 people died in the state of Florida. The daily average is 350, a day. Not a week or a month. Every day .  These days most of them are young.
