Aziz Ansari and the perils of implied consent

On Saturday, a web publication by the name babe published a woman’s account of the worst night of her life, as she calls it. “Grace” was excited to go on a date with Aziz Ansari, an actor, comedian and author she greatly admired. The evening ended with what she now understands to be sexual assault.  Grace says her friends helped her grapple with the aftermath of her night with Ansari. “It took a really long time for me to validate this as sexual assault,” she told us. “I was debating if this was an awkward sexual experience or sexual assault. And that’s why I confronted so many of my friends and listened to what they had to say, because I wanted validation that it was actually bad.” Grace decided to share her story following Ansari’s Golden Globe win for his show, Master of None. “I believe that I was taken advantage of by Aziz. I was not listened to and ignored. It was by far the worst experience with a man I’ve ever had.” The ensuing furor has been dramatic and disturbing. For every outraged reader, there’s at least one caustic commentator with an elevated platform waiting to scorn Grace and those behind her: Apparently there is a whole country full of young women who don’t know how to call a cab, and who have spent a lot of time picking out pretty outfits for dates they hoped would be nights to remember.

Donald Trump’s ‘Prototypes’ in San Diego becomes art

President Donald Trump’s “Prototypes” in San Diego, California might soon gain the status of a national monument.Eight types of walls have been chosen to expand the barrier between Mexico and California. During the election campaign, Trump suggested that this barrier be enlarged by getting Mexico to foot the bill. The Prototypes project is a temporary work of landscape art, but the MAGA non-profit organization is working towards making it a historical and permanent monument, protected by the 1906 Antiquities Act. The association organizes tours between San Diego (California) and Tijuana (Mexico), on fixed dates, to show the different types of walls in the context of the border.Following Trump’s request for Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements, Customs and Border Protection issued two requests for proposals for the design of walls with the aim of building a number of prototypes, and went on to shortlist eight such prototypes from six companies. Four of them are built out of reinforced concrete and four others use different construction materials.The building of these walls was completed in a month on October 26, 2017. Safety tests commenced soon after to monitor attempts to “dig, scale or violate” the walls. The choice and final design will be followed by construction of 2000 miles of wall. The MAGA organization is appealing for these walls not to be demolished and is asking for them to be considered as works of art with a historical memory. However, it appears that it has been the United States that has paid for the walls, and not Mexico, as President Trump provocatively suggested, noted Domus.

Carmelo Anthony is ‘done with the refs’ after Russell Westbrook’s ejection

Russell Westbrook didn’t speak to reporters after being ejected late in the fourth quarter of Monday’s game against the Kings, but teammate Carmelo Anthony managed to share a few words about the officiating in the game.Westbrook was ejected for arguing with an official, after receiving two technicals in the span of roughly five seconds. The dissent stemmed from when the Thunder guard appeared to have been fouled twice on the same play after driving the lane, but was called for traveling. Westbrook then gave an official a piece of his mind, which resulted in the two technical fouls, and him being ejected.Anthony didn’t go into detail about the play in question after the game, but he made sure to convey how he feels about the officials, and was pretty candid in doing so.“I’m done with them,” Anthony said, via ESPN’s Royce Young. “I’m done with the refs. No disrespect, but I’m done with those guys.”Westbrook has been critical of the officials a number of times during the course of his career, and it appears that
