    College administration bribery scandal

    I'm still trying to figure out how responsible the actual colleges are though. Did they have missing fraud controls or were they following reasonable fraud standards at the time? There are always changes to security after something like this to try to keep it from happening again. And I don't...

    College administration bribery scandal

    I'm still not buying it. This kind of crap is why people say the current system needs an overhaul. The only people who have a valid reason for claiming damages are the top of the wait list. They most definitely were screwed out of their spot. Everyone else that didn't join in on the fraud would...

    College administration bribery scandal

    The only ones I see having a chance at a valid lawsuit are the ones first up on the wait lists. If the fraud students hadn't been admitted, these are the ones that would have been. I wouldn't even support refunding application fees for anyone else. They would have had to pay those to get...

    Netflix/Prime/Hulu Discoveries

    I just watched Shoplifters on Hulu and I recommend it. It was a very strange film in that the parents in this family are kidnappers. That sounds worse than it appears. This poor child is is so much better off with this misfit of a family than her blood family. They are not good people but they...

    College administration bribery scandal

    How can they collect damages just for being rejected? I don't think there are that many people that committed actual fraud. A lot of people would still have been rejected even if no fraud had occurred. Wouldn't they have to prove they would have been accepted?

    College administration bribery scandal

    I know a few people working in financial aid that would be thrilled at the thought of dumping athletic aid. They tend to be the smallest population causing the most problems.

    The Voice 16, Spring 2019

    I think the battles are the true test of ability. They have all the time they need to perfect their audition piece. It gets harder from here on out. They have to learn their songs quickly.

    2018 Fall-Spring TV New/Returning Shows

    Has anyone been watching The Orville? It is filled with Seth MacFarlane humor but he has been covering a lot of serious plot lines. For example there is a race of men only. The couple had a child that was born a daughter. The planet's custom is to perform surgery on the baby to make it normal...

    SafeSport alleges "culture of grooming and abuse" in U.S. figure skating

    Is there any reason you need to keep searching for an example where people would think a relationship is ok? Do you think that would mean the rules in place shouldn't be there even if they protect more than they harm? There is no such thing as a perfect system. And 1 valid relationship isn't...

    SafeSport alleges "culture of grooming and abuse" in U.S. figure skating

    No. He got suspended because there were complaints and preliminary investigations provided enough evidence to issue a suspension until a more thorough one could be conducted. Investigations have protocols around them. The investigators could face disciplinary measures themselves if they fail to...

    SafeSport alleges "culture of grooming and abuse" in U.S. figure skating

    I don't know Safe Sport's hiring requirements for investigators but I'm 100% certain that they have to have some sort of certification or licensing. If investigators failed to follow standards in preliminary investigations they could lose their licenses and their jobs. So I doubt that they are...

    SafeSport alleges "culture of grooming and abuse" in U.S. figure skating

    Tinami's example also assumes that a complaint automatically ends up being a suspension. I believe it has already been stated that they do some investigation and have evidence to support decisions that go public.

    2018 Fall-Spring TV New/Returning Shows

    I know I wrote a negative review of The Enemy Within earlier but I went ahead and gave the 2nd episode a chance. I like the actress from Dexter and really wanted this show to work. It didn't improve and just clarified the problem I'm having with the show. I apologize in advance for the length...

    SafeSport alleges "culture of grooming and abuse" in U.S. figure skating

    That is more likely than SafeSport providing the service. That's not the reason the organization exists.

    SafeSport alleges "culture of grooming and abuse" in U.S. figure skating

    NM @RFOS answered while I was typing my question. :) ETA: The covered individuals for mandatory reporting are listed on p. 11 in the link RFOS provided. It's a huge list.

    SafeSport alleges "culture of grooming and abuse" in U.S. figure skating

    It might be state specific. I think there are about 13 states that require institutions to have mandatory reporting if they organize any activities for children. That includes camps and recreation centers. I would think that it would cover sporting organizations in those cases. But I'm not sure.
