Friday: Newsy Snacks For Busy People
Jill Meagher: The worst possible news this morning. Sadly, Jill Meagher has been found and a 41-year-old Melbourne man has been charged with her rape and murder. I had been hoping with all my heart (as had many, many others) that she would be okay. Further details are coming to hand here. Poor Jill. And her poor family and friends. Things like this just shouldn’t happen. Our thoughts are with her family and friends today.
Housework: Ugh. I hate housework. Maybe you do too. Well, a Norwegian study has found that in marriages where men contribute to the chore load, the divorce rate is 50% higher than in those where the woman does most of the work. Splitting responsibilities is a sign of a more modern attitude to relationships, and with that comes higher expectations of marital happiness. The study also found that in couples who split the workload, the women had a fairly high income and were quite independent, making separation a more viable idea when things were going wrong. Interesting.
Cyberbullying: A Canadian girl who was cyberbullied via a malicious fake Facebook profile has won the right to sue her tormentors anonymously in a landmark case, which also prevents media from publishing the contents of the profile her bullies set up ( in her name.) When she discovered the profile page which included photos of her and other sexually explicit content, the girl and her father sought a court order which required the ISP (internet service provider) to divulge the identity of the bully. After initally being refused both the media ban and anonymity, they headed to the Supreme Court, which granted both and understood the importance of protecting children’s identity in cases such as this. You can read the full story here. It’s fantastic that precedents and procedures are finally being cobbled together in the fight against online bullying.
