While most students at Columbia University will spend the first day of classes carrying backpacks and books, Emma Sulkowicz will start her semester on Tuesday with a far heavier burden. The senior plans on carrying an extra-long, twin-size mattress across the quad and through each New York City building – to every class, every day – until the man she says raped her moves off campus.

‘I was raped in my own bed,’ Sulkowicz told me the other day, as she was gearing up to head back to school in this, the year American colleges are finally, supposedly, ready to do something about sexual assault. ‘I could have taken my pillow, but I want people to see how it weighs down a person to be ignored by the school administration and harassed by police.’

"Truth is, despite the fact that I’m surrendering, I actually win. You’ll have my money, but I’ll have the most valuable and rare of currencies to me these days: my time. It’s a modern spiritual reclamation. I choose the chance that I’ll be able to do something sacred with my time — watch Maya try to figure out how Velcro works, hand write a letter to my mom, write an essay that matters to a stranger — rather than battle boringly on and on with faceless, nameless you. In that way, I suppose I’m a believer in practical love over financial principle."

"My husband and I recently had four concert tickets to Country Stomp here in Boise. When the two of us were going into the show, we gave the last two tickets away to a couple that was waiting to buy them at the booth outside. They were grateful, and my husband just told them to pay it forward someday. He’s big on that."

TV. RTÉ TWO Has Success with Electric Picnic Coverage (@rte2, @epfestival)
More than 40,000  encamped themselves to the fields of Stradbally for Electric Picnic last weekend but a significantly higher figure than that tuned in to RTE’s television coverage of the festival, in fact 104,000 people tuned in. 
RTÉ put the like of MTV to shame when it dedicated the majority of their Saturday schedule on RTE Two to the festival and pulled in a total viewership figure of 104,400.
The broadcast was anchored by RTÉ’s Eoghan McDermott and 2fm DJ Jenny Greene, with additional reporting by Al Porter and Blathnaid Treacy.
8 hours of untamed Electric Picnic coverage is available to view now on RTÉ Player for a limited time only. Let’s hope RTÉ TWO continue to broadcast the Electric Picnic in future years.
