Watch: “It’s on us” urges the White House in powerful rape prevention video

If a man is preying on a woman who has had too much to drink, it is her responsibility to stop him and her fault if she can’t? No, it’s on us.

That is the message President Obama and Joe Biden are sending today with the launch of their new sexual assault prevention campaign “It’s On Us.”

This is a huge step forward | Follow micdotcom

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford, III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

The Nautilus Live crew encounters a Flapjack Octopus (Opisthoteuthis sp., most likely O. agassizii) with the ROV currently exploring the deep sea Anegada Passage in the Caribbean Sea.

*Although the species is identified as a “Dumbo Octopus” in the video, I decided to make a more specific identification for you ;)

Look at this little dude! (Or dudette! Or however octopi handle gender!)

This must be one of those “pokemon” I keep hearing about.

So cute!
