Congress calls for permanent office to address "unidentified aerial phenomena"
https://thedebrief.org/congress-calls-fo...phenomena/

INTRO: Legislation contained within the upcoming FY 2022 National Defense Authorization Act calls for the establishment of a permanent office to address “unidentified aerial phenomena” or “UAP,” more commonly known as UFOs.

“Not later than 180 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the Secretary of Defense, in coordination with the Director of National Intelligence, shall establish an office within the Office of the Secretary of Defense to carry out, on a Department-wide basis, the mission currently performed by the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force as of the date of the enactment of this Act,” the proposed legislation reads.

If passed, the move would represent a monumental shift in the U.S. government’s over half-century position on UFOs and represent the first formally acknowledged and permanently staffed effort to investigate unexplained aerial activity since the 1969 closure of the Air Force’s Project Blue Book...

Sexual consent, what it is and how to teach it will be focus of new expert panel

EXCERPTS: Determining how best to educate young people about sexual consent, and identifying which groups in society might be excluded from exercising it, are at the centre of Australia's first major interdisciplinary study into affirmative consent.

Key points: The University of Queensland is conducting an interdisciplinary study into affirmative consent. Researcher Professor Lisa Featherstone says consent is more complicated for people who are unable to exercise it. The research findings will help inform government policy and initiatives as well as how consent is taught in schools. University of Queensland (UQ) researcher and historian Professor Lisa Featherstone is part of the panel of 16 experts who will work to understand what consent is.

[...] Part of the study will look at whether affirmative consent is an option for everyone. "We, in fact, argue that [affirmative consent] is quite a problematic kind of consent because there are many groups in the community who actually can't make an informed yes, an enthusiastic yes," Professor Featherstone said.

She said not everyone was in a position to be able to give an affirmative yes. "These might include women who are in relationships with unequal power dimensions, people who are in domestic violence situations, people [who] have difficult cultural expectations around sex and what marriage or what partnership means," she said.

Professor Featherstone said the study would also include examining the problem of reproductive coercion. Referencing data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, White Ribbon Australia said one in five women have experienced sexual violence since the age of 15.

"We're also keen to work with women in culturally and linguistically diverse groups … we're trying to work with people who bring diverse stories to the table." (MORE - missing details)

Sarcasm aside, it's interesting that UFO sightings are getting serious attention from the government. Whether that means they believe it's alien-related or not, is yet to be seen. They are likely more concerned that it's another country violating our airspace with far advanced technology.

Between the stories on UFOs and consent, it seems like there's a anal probing joke in there.
