Multicultural rapist in Britain
A masked robber has been jailed for six years today after he was caught within an hour by police who tracked him using an app on an iPhone he had stolen from a woman he sexually assaulted.
Raymond Yates, 31, straddled and molested his vulnerable victim in her bed after climbing into her south London house through a window at 5am.
He was arrested an hour later by officers using a tracking app on one of the two phones he had stolen from her.
Yates had been caught on CCTV snooping outside the 23-year-old victim's home before tying a T-shirt over his face and climbing through an open window.
The woman, who was sleeping alone in the room, woke to find the attacker straddling her and pinning her to the bed - he then threatened to kill her if she screamed for help.
He also had no shoes on to lessen the chances of him being heard as he approached.
He fled the scene through the same window as he had entered - pocketing two stolen mobile phones.
Police then traced Yates using a security app on one of the stolen phones - he was arrested on a bus in Brixton Hill just an hour later.
DC Corrado Di Mascio of the Met's Sexual Offences, Exploitation and Child Abuse Command, said: 'This was a particularly harrowing attack on a lone woman whilst she slept in her bed at home.
'The evidence shows that Yates was calculating in his attack, concealing his identity and taking off his shoes in an attempt to mask his approach.
'I would like to praise the victim who has been committed to seeing her attacker brought to justice.'
The attack took place at the victim's home in Forest Hill, south London, at around 5am on July 25 last year.
Yates, of no fixed address, was convicted of sexual assault, trespass with intent to commit a sexual offence, and robbery following a trial at Woolwich Crown Court. Judge David Tomlinson sentenced him to six years jail.
Young women who want to be rich and powerful should major in economics or engineering and be prepared to work 60 hour weeks
From the NYT!
A serious dialogue about parity in the workplace can begin only when we liberate ourselves from the widely propagated but utterly false assertion that “for the same work, women receive 77 cents for every dollar a man earns.” The 23-cent wage gap does not take into account the factors that justify different pay, like occupation, education, tenure on the job, and hours worked per week.
Young women who want to be rich and powerful should major in economics or engineering and be prepared to work 60 hour weeks.
Unfortunately, some activist groups cling to the wage gap, insisting that women earn less than men even after controlling for the relevant variables. For example, the AAUW’s "Graduating to a Pay Gap" report classifies "social science" as one college major and reports that, among such majors, women earn only 83 percent of what men earn. Horrifying—until you notice that "social science" includes both “economics” and “sociology.” Economics majors (66 percent male) have a median income of $70,000; for sociology majors (68 percent female) it is $45,000.
When women’s groups acknowledge that pay disparities are largely explained by women’s choices, they then insist that those choices are not truly free. “Women’s personal choices are… fraught with inequities,” says the AAUW: women are “pigeonholed” into “pink-collar” jobs in health and education. But American women today are as independent-minded and self-determining as any in history. It is condescending to suggest that they have been manipulated when they choose home and family over high-octane careers—or to pursue degrees in education rather than engineering.
It is certainly the case that career-minded women, precisely because they so often embrace greater domestic responsibilities, face distinct challenges. We should, however, be wary of claims that European-style policies—extended and fully paid maternity and paternity leave, subsidized day care, flexible work schedules, and the like—will result in workplace parity. Europe’s comprehensive family-friendly polices do bring more women into the workforce—but they tend to work part-time and remain in low-level positions. American women are more likely to work full-time and to achieve high-level jobs as managers or professionals.
Talented young women who aspire to be rich and powerful would be advised to major in economics or electrical engineering rather than psychology or social work. They should be prepared to work 60 hours a week at the office rather than combining shorter hours with home, family, and other pursuits they find fulfilling. Those who stick with this course will find that their W-2s are equal to those of their male counterparts.
Perhaps, if we stop indoctrinating college women with the myth that the workplace is rigged against them, more will try.
Gross: NARAL Celebrates 45th Anniversary With Image of a Birthday Cupcake
NARAL Pro-Choice America, a group dedicated to the expansion of abortion rights and access in the United States, marked its 45th anniversary Tuesday on Facebook with an image of a birthday cupcake with one candle and by starting the hashtag #HappyBdayNARAL.
“I’m so honored to lead this historic organization into a new era. Happy birthday NARAL Pro-Choice America,” its president Ilyse Hogue shared online. “We’re thrilled to be celebrating our birthday today! Together, we’ve been fighting for reproductive rights and access to reproductive health care for 45 years!”
Since the Roe v. Wade decision, over 55 million babies have been denied the chance to celebrate any birthday.

Australia: Black privilege AND Muslim privilege mean you can do no wrong
What is it with footballers of all codes? Rugby League star Blake Furguson, after repeated other offences, has been found guilty of groping a woman’s breasts in a Cronulla nightclub. CCTV evidence shows him also forcing his hand up her dress and grabbing her front bottom while she struggles to free herself from the oaf.
Crumbs, tennis players and golfers don’t do this sort of thing, do they?
That sort of unprovoked sexual assault has to be worth at least a couple of years in the brig, right? Wrong! Magistrate Jacqueline Trad handed him a two-year good behaviour bond instead.
Furguson’s gobsmacked lawyer, Adam Houda claimed, “We are not happy with this. We will appeal this in a superior court.” What are we not happy with, Mr Houda? The guilty finding, the feathered penalty, or is this sort of sexual assault justified?
Of course media has not commented on the case, other than to report it, for good reason. (Just ask Andrew Bolt.) You see Mr Furguson is an Aborigine and blame has instead been heaped upon the Raiders’ football club for not “taking care” of him.
Maybe I’m old school, because if I had snuck even a kiss from someone I didn’t know I’d reckon I was doin’ okay. Even then I would have been quite prepared to cop a smack in the face in return for trying.
What makes an adult male believe he has the right to molest a female?
What the hell gets into a bloke’s head that convinces him to sexually abuse a woman minding her own business?
Does Mr Furguson believe women have no rights, does he believe they are mere chattels for his crass entertainment?
Then it all became clear, you see his cousin and mentor Anthony Mundine had convinced him to convert to Islam.
Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.
American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of other countries. The only real difference, however, is how much power they have. In America, their power is limited by democracy. To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges. They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did: None. So look to the colleges to see what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way. It would be a dictatorship.
