When 60 million Americans cast a ballot in support of a man who has admitted to sexually assaulting women there are repercussions. The election of Donald Trump told women across the country that sexual harassment by powerful men should be ignored, at least, or at worst, rewarded. The Southern Poverty Law Center reports that dozens of women have been harassed after Trump’s election and now a Connecticut politician has used it as an excuse to sexually assault a colleague.


Chris von Keyserling, 71, a Greenwich Representative Town Meeting board member was arrested last week for groping a female employee’s genitals. Keyserling had a political argument with her in a hallway and then told her, “I love this new world, I no longer have to be politically correct.” As she walked away, he allegedly reached from behind and pinched her crotch. When she confronted him, he replied, “It would be your word against mine and nobody will believe you,” according to arrest documents.

Von Keyserling was arrested by police, charged with fourth-degree sexual assault, released on a $2,500 bond, and given a court date of January 25th. Although he told the victim that no one would believe her about the assault, the police may beg to differ. According to the report, security cameras in the office from the day of the incident confirm with the woman’s claims.

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

Childbirth is the number one reason American women visit the hospital, and it ain't cheap. In fact, it's getting more and more expensive. A new study published in Health Affairs found that the cost of having a baby with employer-sponsored health insurance increased by almost 50% in the past seven years.

The study evaluated "trends in cost-sharing for maternity care for women with employer-based health insurance plans, before and after the Affordable Care Act," which was signed into law in 2010. The study looked at over 657,061 women enrolled in large employer-sponsored health insurance plans who delivered babies between 2008 and 2015, as these plans tend to cover more than plans purchased by small businesses or individuals.

A meteorite crashed into Earth nearly 800,000 years ago. The meteor was 1.2 miles wide, and the impact was so big, it covered 10% of the planet with debris. However, scientists haven't been able to find the impact site for over a century. That is, until now. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal believes the crash site has been located.

Tektites, which are essentially rocks that have been liquefied from the heat of the impact and then cooled to form glass, help scientists spot the original impact site of a meteor. Upon impact, melted material is thrown into the atmosphere, then falls back to the ground. Even if the original crater has disappeared due to erosion or is hidden by a shift in tectonic plates, tektites give the spot away. Tektites between 750,000 to 35.5 million years old have been found in every continent except Antarctica.
