VIDEO: How to make a cereal box projector to view the solar eclipse

Maybe you didn't get to the library quick enough to pick up some free NASA-approved eclipse viewing glasses. Or maybe you just want to do a fun craft with the kids to experience the eclipse. The project is NASA-approved and variations have been used for decades. (Maybe you put a big cardboard box over your head as a child to watch the 1979 eclipse.) Here's a video to show you how to make your own pin projector to safely watch the eclipse on Monday.

Advocates point to Harvey Weinstein allegations as example of larger problem

Khrys Styles formed the K.A.S.S.I.E. Project after a good friend, Cassie Betts, was killed by her boyfriend 17 years ago. She said she wants to create a safe space to speak.  "Cassie and I spent a lot of time just hanging out, talking on the couch, but I feel like we weren't talking about anything," she said.  That's because neither knew the other had experienced sexual assault, Styles said.  Allegations of sexual assault by movie mogul Harvey Weinstein have advocates here in the Tri-State saying it's part of a growing problem that needs to be addressed.  Kristin Shrimplin is the president and CEO of Women Helping Women, another group that helps victims of gender-based violence. Shrimplin said the group works with 7,000 survivors.  "I get incredibly frustrated at times," she said. "I do not understand why we are seeing more violence, harassment and assault." Shrimplin said high-profile cases like Weinstein's point to a growing "rape culture" in society, and that needs to change. It will take policies, laws, mandates and programming to prevent it, she said. In a report last year, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission called sexual harassment a persistent problem, saying three out of four cases go unreported to a supervisor.  "We're not going to be quick to say, 'Hey, this happened to me,'" Styles said. "We don't need somebody else telling us that it was our fault, or we should have done this or it couldn't have been them." Women Helping Women also helps companies develop sexual harassment policies. They offer a 24-hour crisis hotline at 513-381-5610.

PD: Facebook post helps nab accused 'porch pirate' in Miami Township package theft

MIAMI TOWNSHIP (HAMILTON COUNTY), Ohio -- 'Tis the season for package thefts, and 31-year-old Daniel Stolz of College Hill stands accused after police say he snatched two packages off a front porch near Cleves. A judge set bond at $25,000 on Tuesday morning. Stolz was identified after the victim shared video surveillance footage on social media asking for help finding the man who took two packages off her porch just moments after a Fed-Ex driver dropped them off. The packages contained credit cards and children's toys, according to a court affidavit. The prosecutor said Stolz has prior felony theft and burglary convictions. Several Tri-State police departments, including Norwood, Colerain Township and Amberley Village, are working to make sure people don't fall victim to "porch pirates" by allowing them to ship packages to police stations through December. Other advice police offer is to have a neighbor sign for packages or simply make a conscious effort to be home when packages arrive, if that's feasible.
