    “I believe that some colleges may potentially be afraid of having a bad reputation and that would be a reason it could be swept under the rug, because they don’t want that to come out into the public,”Nia Sanchez said. “But I think more awareness is very important so women can learn how to protect themselves. Myself, as a fourth-degree black belt, I learned from a young age that you need to be confident and be able to defend yourself. And I think that’s something that we should start to really implement for a lot of women.”

But this fairy tale, familiar to millions today from storybook and film, bears little resemblance to the extraordinary young woman who crossed cultures and oceans in her brief and ultimately tragic life. The startling artwork (above), the oldest in the National Portrait Gallery collection, is the only image of Pocahontas taken from life. Made during her visit to London...

    With almost no evidence that she committed the crime, Jody Arias was convicted yesterday of Murder in the First Degree. This travesty, this miscarriage of justice, cannot stand. This woman is clearly NOT GUILTY and has been horribly framed. It was obvious that when defending oneself, one must shoot one's boyfriend, then stab stab him 29 times, then dispose of the gun in the desert. I feel so sorry for Jody Arias, who has been unfairly railroaded by an uncaring and fairness-free legal system. She has been persecuted by lying and manipulative prosecutors. She is the modern Joan of Arc,...
