While the theresponsibility fordomestic violence or sexual assault lies with the perpetrators of these crimes, we all play a role in preventingviolence and looking out for each other’s safety. Recognizing the signs of the behaviors that may signal domestic or sexualviolence or circumstances that may lead to these crimes is a critical first step to taking action to preventviolence. Once you identify when to respond , you can then identify how to respond in a way that feels appropriate and comfortable.

TIP→ Follow your instincts. If a situation feels wrong to you, it probably is. One way to decide is to ask yourself, “If I don’t act, could the situation get worse?” IF YES, then you shouldevaluate the best way to intervene.

Follow your instincts. If a situation feels wrong to you, it probably is. One way to decide is to ask yourself, “If I don’t act, could the situation get worse?” IF YES, then you shouldevaluate the best way to intervene.

Check out the following tips for evaluatingthe best way to intervene if you witness a situation between others that might be abusive or how to respond when witnessing a potential sexual assault:

Ask yourself if it's safe to intervene

Safety is key in deciding when and how to respond to domestic and sexual violence while it’s occurring. If the situation is already violent or looks like it’s escalating quickly, don’t directly intervene. Call 911.


If you’ve decided that you can safely intervene, you can create a distraction in an indirect and non-confrontational way. You can disrupt the situation just by talking, like striking up a conversation about anything to help keep a potentially dangerous situation from escalating. Your goal is to prevent a situation from getting worse, or better yet, buy enough time to check in with the potential victim and ask them if they are okay.

TIP→ Ask for directions, the time, help looking for a lost item, or anything else that you think might keep them from leaving quickly. Better yet, if you can use a distraction that will get you a moment alone with the victim, you may have a moment to check with him/her and see if he/she wants any help. “Hey, I think your car is getting towed outside. I will stay here with your friend, while you go and check it out.” “Hey do you mind if I steal my friend for a second? It’s an emergency.” – via Pleaser Bond Girl 712 Womens rteHwo03


If you don’t have a lot of time, you can still speak out and say what’s happening isn’t right and reassure the mistreated person they don’t deserve these actions. If you feel comfortable approaching the victim, you could check in and simply say, “I’m concerned about what just happened. Is anything wrong?” You can also let them know that FREE and CONFIDENTIAL help is available help for victims, their children pets. Save the number of the National Hotlines in your phone in case you meet someone who needs it.


If you don’t feel comfortable directly talking with someone or distracting them, look for someone else who might be able to help you intervene – power in numbers can be one of the most valuable tools, or you can look for someone else who might be in a better position to get involved – i.e. tell the bouncer, find the person’s friends, or call the authorities.

Prevention is Key

Before going out, create an exit strategy for uncomfortable situations—whether it’s checking in via text messages, creating a signal for a friend to swoop in if a conversation gets intense, or formulating an exit plan when the party’s over. Chat about different scenarios and how you want to respond.

Identify why you're worried

If you see something that makes you uneasy, identify the behavior that worries you. Is your friend drinking too much, and are you afraid she/he might not be able to say no?Are you afraid that they could potentially fail to recognize that the other party is too drunk to consent? Remember, if the person seeking sex is intoxicated, theyhave a decreased ability to recognizethe capacity of the other party to give consent — . Failure to recognize that the victim was too drunk to consent is not just “drunk sex,” it’s sexual assault.

Consider whether to intervene

A situation doesn’t have to be dangerous for you to step in.Of course, if you see someone getting hurt or worried someone might be violent, don’t handle it solo. Call 911. But also recognize that there are “shades of gray” or situations that are hard to read—like at a party or a bar—where something might be concerning but not yet crossing the line. When something doesn’t feel right, ask yourself: ‘How might the situation affect the people who are involved? What’s the possible outcome? Could the situation get worse if you don’t do anything?” IF YES, then evaluate the best way to respond.

TIP→ Think of the “event” as being on a continuum that ranges fromhealthy, age-appropriate, respectful, and safe behaviors to sexual abuse, rape, and violent behaviors. Between the ends are other behaviors, includingthose that begin to feel inappropriate, coercive, and harassing. These mid-range behaviors present anopportunity to intervene andreinforce positive behaviors BEFORE a behavior moves further along the continuum into something violent. –viaNSVRC’s Engaging Bystanders in Sexual Violence Prevention Boolket byJoan Tabachnick.

Decide on a course of action

There aremany ways you can step in when something isn’t right. Stepping in can make all the difference, but remember to never put your own safety at risk.If it’s a friend, and you’ve done Step 1, you know what to do next. Other methods of stepping in could be:

You can disrupt the situation just by talking, like striking up a conversation about anything. Your goal is to prevent a situation from getting worse, or better yet, buy enough time to check in with the potential victim and ask them if they are okay.

Ask directly if they are okay or if they need help or someone to stay with them. You can ask if they’re ready to leave or if they’d like to grab a bite with you to help remove them from a uncomfortable situation.

This is key: There’s comfort in numbers. Enlisting allies, like another mutual friend, can defuse the situation much more smoothly than trying to go it alone. You can also look for someone else who might be in a better position to get involved – i.e. tell the bouncer, find an RA, look for the person’s friends, or call the authorities.

Vladimir Zworykin demonstrates electronic television (1929)

Meanwhile, Vladimir Zworykin was also experimenting with the cathode ray tube to create and show images. While working for Westinghouse Electric in 1923, he began to develop an electronic camera tube. But in a 1925 demonstration, the image was dim, had low contrast, and poor definition, and was stationary. [57] Zworykin's imaging tube never got beyond the laboratory stage. But RCA, which acquired the Westinghouse patent, asserted that the patent for Farnsworth's 1927 image dissector was written so broadly that it would exclude any other electronic imaging device. Thus RCA, on the basis of Zworykin's 1923 patent application, filed a FryeRiley D Ring Lace Llqt0A
suit against Farnsworth. The PUMA Suede XL Lace VR QefiRUDl
examiner disagreed in a 1935 decision, finding priority of invention for Farnsworth against Zworykin. Farnsworth claimed that Zworykin's 1923 system would be unable to produce an electrical image of the type to challenge his patent. Zworykin received a patent in 1928 for a color transmission version of his 1923 patent application; [58] he also divided his original application in 1931. [59] Zworykin was unable or unwilling to introduce evidence of a working model of his tube that was based on his 1923 patent application. In September 1939, after losing an appeal in the courts, and determined to go forward with the commercial manufacturing of television equipment, RCA agreed to pay Farnsworth US$1million over a ten-year period, in addition to license payments, to use his patents.

In 1933, RCA introduced an improved camera tube that relied on Tihanyi's charge storage principle. TOMS Suede SlipOn Sneaker pMpvTL
Dubbed the "Iconoscope" by Zworykin, the new tube had a light sensitivity of about 75,000 , and thus was claimed to be much more sensitive than Farnsworth's image dissector. [ citation needed ] However, Farnsworth had overcome his power problems with his Image Dissector through the invention of a completely unique "multipactor" device that he began work on in 1930, and demonstrated in 1931. [63] [64] This small tube could amplify a signal reportedly to the 60th power or better [65] and showed great promise in all fields of electronics. Unfortunately, a problem with the multipactor was that it wore out at an unsatisfactory rate. [66]
