Male Victims of Domestic Violence – When HE is the Victim

There are many programs for female victims of domestic violence too numerous to mention – and that’s a good thing. But what happens when the MALE is the victim of domestic violence? Are we as a society quick to intervene, do we show compassion for the male victim, or do we simply look the other way?

Mainstream media and cheesy tabloids exploded with the news. A physical altercation left singer Rihanna bruised, allegedly by her equally-popular, then-boyfriend, Chris Brown.

The news traveled far and fast. People everywhere were furious and even the hip-hop world spoke out on the alleged assault. Talk shows dedicated entire episodes on the topic of violence against women and rightly so.

For a certainty, the subject of domestic violence (DV) is no longer taboo. As recently as the early 1990’s, the topic was only spoken of in smaller, more intimate circles. There were whispers in the dark and for the most part, people – including the victims’ family members – turned a blind eye.

While the outrage toward domestic violence is …read more

Travel Advice & Hotel Guide For African Safaris

African safaris are so popular because of the exotic experience in a distant continent, and this is precisely what makes it harder to make the travel arrangements. It’s not as easy as booking a hotel in a big city, and there are other issues to be considered such as meals and transport. The whole thing becomes a lot easier by finding and booking package deals where the traveler doesn’t have to worry about the details.

The first thing to know would be where exactly within Africa to go for a safari, and when to go. The where can be broadly classified into popular destinations in southern and eastern Africa. This includes South Africa’s Kruger Park and Botswana’s Chobe Park in the south, and Kenya’s Wildebeest migration and Masai Mara and Tanazania’s Serengeti in the east, among others.

When to visit these places for a safari is determined by the rain and migratory patterns. Those visiting Kenya for the migration should go in between July to Nov. In Tanzania, it is the opposite, from Nov to June.

Trump Loses Travel Ban Appeal, Will Most Likely Go To Supreme Court

Published by:

A federal appeals court slapped down the latest iteration of President Trump‘s travel ban, saying it “drips with religious intolerance, animus and discrimination,” according to the New York Times.

The decision came down from the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, in Richmond, Virginia, with a vote of 10 to 3. Unsurprisingly the three justices who voted no are Republican appointees.

The ban was yet another a setback for the president who immediately tried to restrict travel for those from seven predominantly Muslim countries soon after taking office in January. The executive order was met with scores of protests throughout the nation and was ultimately struck down by courts as unconstitutional.

The president then submitted a less rigorous and revised ban which was struck down yet again. The Fourth Circuit on Thursday weighed in on that appeal.

Chief Judge Roger Gregory of the Fourth said the order was still the product of religious hostility, and violates the First Amendment which promises freedom of religion. In writing the majority opinion, he referenced Trump’s rhetoric on the campaign trail—which the administration has argued was made before he was president and should not be taken into …read more
