Risk of sexual assault increases in certain time frames, environments

September 29, 2014
The beginning of a college student’s first semester, known as the “red zone,” is recognized across college campuses as a time when female students might be at an increased risk of becoming a victim to sexual assault. But there might be other periods of risk that are not covered within the red zone time frame that stretches from the first day on campus until Thanksgiving break, said Bill Flack, an associate professor of psychology at Bucknell University in Pennsylvania. Since 2007, Flack has been conducting annual surveys on college campus sexual assault. “All campuses should be doing climate surveys,” he said. “Not that local numbers are perfect, but they are… Read more

University Police identify suspect in sexual assault

September 29, 2014
A suspect was identified in one of the weekend’s three reported sexual assaults. The suspect is not an Ohio State student and is no longer on campus, according to a media release from University Police. A female student reported at about 10:20 a.m. on Saturday that a rape had occurred in a South Campus residence hall earlier that morning between 4-4:30 a.m. At the time, it was believed that the suspect was an OSU student, and the incident prompted a public safety notice. The suspect — who is described as a 22-23-year-old white male standing 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing 150 pounds — was invited into the dorm… Read more

Joey Bosa a ‘dominating force’ for Buckeye defense

September 29, 2014
When Ohio State’s Joey Bosa drilled Cincinnati quarterback Gunner Kiel on Saturday and forced a fumble that ultimately resulted in a safety, the record crowd at Ohio Stadium erupted. Bosa wasn’t even sure where the ball landed. “I just made a move inside and my eyes got big and I ran as fast as I can and hit him as hard as I could,” Bosa, a sophomore defensive lineman, said Saturday following the game. “I actually thought he got the ball off so I stood up and went to walk back to the line, but I saw the ball pop out.” The play not only electrified the fans and gave… Read more

Offensive line paves the way for Buckeyes’ big numbers

September 29, 2014
After Ohio State’s win against Cincinnati, Urban Meyer made it clear which position group led the way. On Monday, the third-year OSU coach reiterated the impact his offensive line had on the Buckeyes 50-28 win. “Player of the game was the entire offensive line,” Meyer said. The line paved the way as the OSU offense either set, or came close to setting, multiple school records against the Bearcats. The Buckeyes set a new OSU record with 45 first downs and finished third in school history with 710 total yards from scrimmage. The Buckeyes even briefly held what would have been a new record of 720 yards before a 20-yard loss… Read more

Former Jay Leno producer shares ‘Tonight Show’ experiences with Ohio State students

September 29, 2014
As co-producer of “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “The Jay Leno Show” for a combined 18 years, Dave Berg helped shape late-night television with his experience in journalism by bringing in people from the political world, which ultimately contributed to one of the first environments where news and entertainment merged. Berg came to Ohio State on Sept. 22 with his wife Mary, an OSU alumna, to speak about his experience with “The Tonight Show,” a period of time he also describes in his new book, “Behind the Curtain: An Insider’s View of Jay Leno’s Tonight Show.” He spoke to several journalism-related classes, including Comm 4202, a magazine-writing class… Read more

Opinion: Vince Vaughn, Colin Farrell fit in new ‘True Detective’ roles; Amanda Bynes arrested yet again

September 29, 2014
This is part of a weekly series called “Pop Opinions” where The Lantern offers its take on the week’s pop culture news. One of this year’s most discussed shows, “True Detective,” still has yet to leave the public eye months after the finale of its fantastic first season. Speculation has since run wild about the replacement of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey as the show’s stars. Now we have some confirmation. Vince Vaughn will be one, and, sadly, Owen Wilson will not be the other. Colin Farrell told Irish newspaper Sunday World that he will star opposite of Vaughn, along with other yet-to-be-named detectives. The second season of the HBO… Read more

Opinion: Off-campus break-in a nightmare realized

September 28, 2014
I was on my way to my friends’ house on 9th Avenue after the Ohio State game against Cincinnati when I got a call from my roommate’s boyfriend. He asked me when I was last at my house. He and my roommate had just gotten back and the door was wide open. To be honest, even though I hadn’t been at my house since 1:30 p.m. and it was now about 10, I was only a little bit concerned. I try not to get too worried about things like this to prevent myself from overreacting, so I just told him to call me when they had talked to my other… Read more

Letter to the editor: Rape culture must stop

September 28, 2014
Letter to the editor: I have been a student at Ohio State for six, going on seven, weeks and already there have been four — count them, four reported sexual assaults — and they are getting more and more frequent. The fact that there have already been so many is outraging. And the fact that in at least two of the cases, there were multiple assailants is sickening. No means no! I know these this past weekend has been a heavy party weekend, and with the football game against University of Cincinnati and midterms, I understand the desire to let loose and drink it away. But just because you decide… Read more
