    A new adhesive device that attaches to bras or underwear can detect when an article of clothing is forcefully removed. Inventors at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) hope it can help prevent rape and sexual assault. Conceived by MIT researcher Manisha Mohan, this garment add-on can sense violent removal, and sends a prompt to the wearer asking her to confirm consent. If the owner doesn't respond within a set time, the tape uses a Bluetooth connection to alert five pre-selected phone contacts to the danger. It also sends a GPS location to them and begins recording audio. This device,...

    FRIDAY, July 21, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Most women murdered in the United States die at the hands of a current or former intimate partner, a new federal study reports. In a review of female homicide statistics from 2003 to 2014 in 18 states, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that domestic violence was involved in about 55 percent of the deaths of 10,018 women. "This was consistent across all racial and ethnic groups, and really highlights that intimate partner violence is a public health problem," said lead researcher Dr. Emiko Petrosky. She is a science officer...

    “A taxpayer funded study has made the audacious claim that Australians need to show ‘cultural sensitivity’ towards migrant men who physically abuse their wife and children….The study refers to some refugees claiming that these rights ‘contravene the cultural values, norms and mores’ of their ethnic groups…Yet the study has faced strong resistance in the shape of federal Minister for Women Michaelia Cash who has stated Australia is categorically against family violence.” This problem may not be solved now, but it will have to be faced eventually, not just in Australia but in all non-Muslim countries: are Muslims allowed to break...

    Virginia Democrat Governor Terry McAuliffe just put a lot of innocent lives in his state at risk.  On Friday, he vetoed a bill that would have allowed victims of domestic violence, who have a protective order to carry a firearm concealed for up to 45 days without a permit. House Bill 1852 would recognize that a person who has a protective order and is over 21 years of age to carry their gun concealed for up to 45 days after they receive the order.  Additionally, it would give the person another 45 days if they chose to apply for a permanent...

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D.) vetoed a bill on Friday that aimed to allow victims of domestic violence to carry concealed firearms without obtaining a permit. House Bill 1852 would allow anyone in Virginia who has a protective order and is over 21 to carry a concealed firearm without a permit for up to 45 days after the order is issued. It would then give anyone with an active order an additional 45 days to carry concealed should they apply for a permanent concealed-handgun permit, which can take up to 45 days to process. The person with the protective order...

    Congress has written some laudable policies into the Pet and Women Safety Act of 2017 (H.R.909) that are designed to protect domestic violence victims from “trauma caused by acts of violence or threats of violence against their pets.”There is one provision of the bill, however, that takes a familiar step too far: It would create a federal crime to harass or intimidate any person’s pet in a way that causes “substantial emotional distress.”Given the threats from cyberattacks, interstate and international crime cartels, terrorist groups, drug trafficking, and the criminal aspects of immigration issues, the resource-constrained federal law enforcement community does...
