Operation Freefall sheds light on sexual assault

People usually go sky-diving to experience the thrill and cross it off the bucket list. But, in 2001 a woman named Kelly Greene used skydiving as a tool to empower and overcome her past. She was sexually assaulted, but instead of fearing the anniversary of the assault, she decided to overcome another fear of hers: heights. Now, Michigan State University’s Sexual Assault Intervention Team is joining the initiative. Volunteers are raising money and some will even be jumping from an airplane. Exposure Director Abbie Newton talks with MSU psychology student Brianna Jecmen about the Intervention Team and Operation Freefall. For more information on how to make donations, click here.

Russia President Vladimir Putin to annex Crimea, Black Sea Peninsula

Russia President Vladimir Putin approved a draft bill that would annex the Black Sea Peninsula, bringing Crimea into the Russian Federation. This happened after an estimated 97 percent of Crimea voters supported a referendum for a union to Russia. While that number has questionable validity, the US and Europe don’t recognize the vote, saying that it was illegal. To fully understand the situation and its potential impacts, Exposure Host Abbie Newton invited Assistant Professor of the Department of History Matthew Pauly into the studio.
