Base Boston: It’s where many victims of sexual assault in the service get sent.

This is about a friend of mine.
After decades of being all but ignored, the issue of sexual violence in the military has been the focus of a firestorm of attention in recent months. The Oscar-nominated documentary The Invisible War has done its part to give a face and a voice to the crisis, while Congress is working to address the issue with fervor, implementing several new laws to protect members of the armed forces, and holding a flurry of hearings in the past few months to discuss further legislation. Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel has called sexual assault within the ranks “unacceptable,” and President Barack Obama has said that the perpetrators of violence are “betraying the uniform.” Meanwhile, the number of reported sexual assaults jumped 34.5 percent in the past year, to 26,300.

Miami Heat fans SUCK

Hundreds Of Heat Fans Leave Game 6 Early; A Nation Laughs

But then a funny thing happened. The basketball gods granted us an all-time thriller. Ginobili missed a FT; LeBron hit a three. Kawhi Leonard missed a FT; Ray Allen hit a three. Tie game. Overtime. And somehow, those Heat fans heading for their cars caught wind. What followed was a desperate rush to get back into the arena, and to pretend they didn't suck. WPLG's Victor Oquendo was there to make sure they didn't go unshamed:

Civil War

Some Southerners love to refer to the Civil War as "The War of Northern Aggression". This is just for them.

Abandoned wooden house in Russia

There is an abandoned village Ostashevo in Chuhlomskoy district of Kostroma oblast and 100 meters to the east this wooden wonder is standing. The building is an old two-storey house with a tower, full of various carved decoration.
Such a cool looking place!. Would love to visit.

Blood is thicker than water?

Really sick of the hell this crazy relative is putting my family through.
