Please don't think nothing is going on with the whole "rape culture-Lloyd Irvin-Keith Owen" confluence of events... I'm just in the midst of having finished two work deadlines and starting a third, due next week, plus training, plus getting ready to leave for the Pans in Irvine CA this afternoon, on top of all the stuff that seems to happen behind the scenes. It's happening! just maybe not in public as much :)
-- A great site compiling all the links, timelines, etc on the various Lloyd Irvin rape cases is here, www.lloydirvinrapetruth.com/.
--Steubenville football players convicted ("found delinquent" as they're minors) of sexual assault. Horrific stupid comments by so many people out there. Great article about it here.
-- Rumors abound about the NYE rape survivor, confirming that rape culture is alive and well in many minds. (I am working on something to help instructors, leaders, coaches educate themselves and their students/friends, as best I can.)
--Prof. Tony Pacenski posted a reply to Prof. Keith Owen's diatribes on women in jiu jitsu.
--Ironman Bret wrote a nice piece on the 97% vs. 3% mindset.
-- A sickening but very important documentary about rape in the military.
Please do come say hi if you see a short chick with red hair working as a ring coordinator (wearing a blue pinney with a ring number on it) at the Pans--- probably it's me :)
One last thought-- something healthy and low carb, gluten-free etc. The recipe calls for tuna, but I find tuna to be dry and too strongly flavored. Ironically, my amendment is to sub in raw salmon. Do this at your own risk, only use sushi-grade salmon (or tuna) etc. But that's what I do!
6 ounces chunk light tuna packed in water (or diced raw tuna or salmon)
¾ cup chopped celery
8 kalamata olives
5-10 chopped cashews or almonds
½ cup chopped red onion
1-2 tablespoon mild salsa
1/4 diced avocado
4 large lettuce leaves
1 teaspoon capers (optional if you are looking for a low sodium meal)
1 teaspoon pepper
Mix capers, nuts, celery, tuna, olives, avocado, onion and salsa, in a small bowl. Sprinkle with pepper if desired. Wash and pat dry lettuce and leave whole. Place tuna mixture in the lettuce down the center of the stalk. Wrap and enjoy!
