‘Unnoticed and unreported’: Child abuse reporting down during pandemic, while internet crimes increase | Crime



Special report: Spotlighting sex offenses to draw discussion out of the shadows

Sex offenses, and how our society deals with both offenders and victims, are problems we can’t ignore.

Sgt. Theresa Janick, who oversees the Milwaukee Police Department’s Sensitive Crimes Unit, said her unit has seen a decrease this year in the reporting of child abuse and sexual crimes against children.

Janick’s unit investigated 361 reports of sexual assault of a child and 554 reports of child abuse from Jan. 1 to Nov. 15 in 2019. Over the same period in 2020, cases dropped to 334 and 475, respectively.

From January to October in 2019, Madison police investigated 165 cases of abuse, neglect or sexual assault compared to

‘Drunk squirrel’ becomes unlikely internet hero after eating too many fermented pears

In the midst of an endless news cycle centred on global pandemic guidelines and the future of democracy itself, it seems no one can resist a much needed break. Enter: a drunk squirrel vid.

A video posted on Twitter earlier this week, which now has nearly two million views, shows a squirrel guzzling down some pears which have seemingly fermented – turning them alcoholic.

The drunk squirrel was initially caught swaying on camera by Katy Morlok of Minnesota, who had put out an old pear from her fridge outside for local wildlife to eat. She saw one of the squirrels, who she called ‘Lil Red’, take a pear up a tree.

“It kind of dawned on me: ‘Oh no, those pears were so old, I bet they fermented,’” Morlok told local station Fox 9.

The wide-eyed tipsy squirrel can be seen slowly swaying backwards like any drunk mate you

Utah’s Mysterious Monolith Case May Have Been Solved Thanks To The Internet

Utah’s mysterious monolith case seems to have been solved thanks to the Internet. If you leave a mystery alone on the web for long enough, someone will crack it. (Just look at how fast Reddit communities around different properties routinely figure out season arcs and twists months in advance.) Well, it seems as though the monolith is actually a leftover set piece from Westworld filming. On Reddit, users isolated the site of the weird rectangle and figured out where it was using Google Earth. Then, using historical imaging data, they figured out that it appeared between August 2015 and October of 2016. So, the HBO show was filming nearby and that means there could have been a set that was simply neglected on the way out of Utah. So, the Bureau of Land Management in the state had to issue a statement. Things get weirder, because now the monolith is

Ask Dr. Universe: Why does the internet go down?

Dr. Universe: Why does the internet go down? – Mia, 11, Sheridan, Wyoming

Dear Mia,

The internet has helped many people connect with classmates, friends and family during the pandemic. But you’re right, sometimes the connection gets lost.

My friend Dingwen Tao, an assistant professor of computer science at Washington State University, said we can think about the internet like a highway of information.

You might remember from our question about how the internet works that information, like the data that makes up your favorite cat video or science website, travels through electronic signals we cannot see with our eyes.

Tao said these electrical signals also can move through a system of underground wires and cables. The cables and wires run from where you are using the internet to a local internet office to a regional internet office.

One reason the internet might go down is that there is a

Salesforce-Slack would be first big deal in boom year for software

The tech industry has seen some hefty deals announced during the 2020 pandemic, including several in the tens of billions of dollars. But not in software.

That could change soon. Salesforce, which has been one of tech’s biggest acquirers in recent years, has been in talks to buy Slack, CNBC and other media outlets reported on Wednesday. Slack shares surged almost 38% after the initial report, lifting its market cap to $23 billion.

It would be one of the biggest software acquisitions ever, and potentially the largest since IBM bought Red Hat for $34 billion, a purchase announced in 2018.

The dearth of big software deals this year reflects the outsized growth much of the industry has experienced during the past eight months
