Research shows that Indigenous women and girls are more likely to experience violence compared to women of other ethnicities, but it’s a crisis that’s difficult to grasp because no one knows exactly how many have been taken or killed. With no comprehensive method for tracking cases, the website Justice for Native Women is a grassroots initiative to record these victims across the United States and Canada.
The work of Justice for Native Women, along with federal data sources, helped a…
A mammal native to South America’s savannas, the maned wolf now lives in the Amazon Rainforest. That’s the finding of a recent study by researchers in the Brazilian states of Mato Grosso, Amazonas and Rondônia, which recorded 22 sightings of maned wolves in the Amazon over the past two decades. Ten were in new territory, effectively widening the animals’ normal geographic distribution by more than 20,000 square miles.
Historically, the Amazonian biome marks the northern boundary of the maned wolf’s…
The Ohio State Highway Patrol says it’s important to be aware of the consequences of drunk and drugged driving.
December is National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month, an effort to highlight what authorities say is a notable increase in the number of crashes involving impaired drivers.
According to the group “Mothers against drunk driving,” during the year of 2018, 839 deaths occurred in December alone.
That represents 29 percent of all drunk driving deaths of that year.
With that in mind, the…

The NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Committee announced today the relocation of 13 predetermined preliminary round sites for the 2021 Division I Men’s Basketball Championship.
In recent weeks, the Division I Men’s Basketball Committee has engaged in a thorough contingency planning process to determine the most effective way to conduct a safe and healthy March Madness for all participants for the 2021 championship. Through these discussions, it became apparent to the committee that conducting the championship at 13 preliminary round sites spread throughout the country would be very difficult to execute in the current pandemic environment. The committee has decided the championship should be held in a single geographic area to enhance the safety and well-being of the event.
As a result, NCAA staff are in preliminary talks with the State of Indiana and the city of Indianapolis to potentially host the 68-team tournament around the metropolitan area during the coordinated dates in March and April. Indianapolis was already slated to host the Men’s Final Four from April 3-5, 2021.
“My committee colleagues and I did not come lightly to the difficult decision to relocate the preliminary rounds of the 2021 tournament, as we understand the disappointment 13 communities will feel to miss out on being part of March Madness next year,” said Mitch Barnhart, chair of the Division I Men’s Basketball Committee and University of Kentucky athletics director. “With the University of Kentucky slated to host first- and second-round games in March, this is something that directly impacts our school and community, so we certainly share in their regret. The committee and staff deeply appreciate the efforts…
Ever since this whole Coronavirus thing has been around I have been experiencing something strange. No not a fever or coughing-rather I have been experiencing bad service. That’s right anywhere you go or anywhere you call it seems everyone is using the virus as an excuse for bad service. Even the U.S. Mail Service has been using it as an excuse why their deliveries are late. As if they ever could be considered quicky delivery! And when ever you call a customer service number, no matter if its a bank or a store, you almost always hear a recording as soon as you call saying about the same thing-“We are sorry but due to the virus we are experiencing longer then normal wait time”. Yea sure its the virus that caused that. What was your excuse for the long wait times the last 20 years? It just seems that everyone has an excuse for bad service, long wait times or out of stock items. I went to the local grocery store yesterday and they were out of Grandma Brown’s Baked Beans. When I asked the store manager when they would be getting them in her response was-“I’m not sure, they have been out of stock because of the virus”. Really? So let me get this straight-Grandma Brown is not able to grow, pick, can & ship beans because of the Coronavirus? That is one wicked strong virus! Let’s face facts-the Coronavirus has nothing…
