From the Midwest to the Northwest, from SoCal to Seattle... life is always an adventure.
If I'm not watching the Buckeyes, I'd rather be on the trail

This certainly seems to be asking  for a "cupping" series of photos, but I'm neither clever enough nor photoshop savvy enough to put it together.

Plus, this is still a family friendly website.

I was in town for a conference a few weeks ago and rented and apartment in Clintonville via VRBO. Clean and relaxing and less expensive than the conference hotel partnership rates.

I've been informed by my daughters (10 and 16) that they're doing the egg hunt (plastic, filled with goodies) for my wife and I this year.

While I'm not expecting any "big goodies", I'm thankful that they know my chocolate preference- Dark and bitter, like my soul.

The challenge is that the Department of Education/Office of Civil Rights have a different definition of "sexual assault/rape" than the Department of Justice/Local Law enforcement.

The former is working to figure out how Title IX applies (and may arguably have an overly expansive definition), while the former sometimes leads to moments like this: Oklahoma court rules that forced oral sex isn't rape if the victim is passed out drunk

Good article. Think about the OJ trials... Different evidentiary standards found him not guilty in the criminal court and guilty in the civil trial. Criminal standard is beyond a reasonable doubt (100%) Civil is "clear and convincing" (75%) DoE uses preponderance of evidence or "More likely than not" (50.1%), but many schools are being encouraged to use the higher standard in these types of situations in order to ensure fundamental fairness. https://www.insidehighered.com/news/2016/12/16/will-colleges-still-use-preponderance-evidence-standard-if-2011-guidance-reversed
