Investigators will travel to Antarctica after claims of sexual assault at U.S. bases

McMurdo Station is photographed from the air on Oct. 27, 2014.
Investigators with the National Science Foundation's watchdog office are heading to Antarctica in response to longtime allegations of sexual misconduct at U.S. research stations there — which the NSF director has described as a "pervasive problem."
Special agents are expected to arrive Monday at McMurdo Station, the largest research hub on the continent where hundreds of scientists conduct fieldwork. The visit is scheduled through Nov. 17.
"Members of our investigative staff will be visiting McMurdo to prepare for a future on-site presence in Antarctica and meet with staff to explain our role," Lisa Vonder Haar, the chief of staff for the NSF's inspector general, said in a statement.
Sexual harassment and assault plague U.S. research bases in Antarctica, report says
The trip comes more than a year after the release of a damning report by the NSF, which oversees all American operations in Antarctica, cataloging a culture of harassment and assault within the U.S. Antarctic Program. In addition to McMurdo, the NSF also collected concerns of sexual misconduct at South Pole Station, Palmer Station and other U.S. research vessels in Antarctica.
Drawing on surveys of 880 current and recent employees, 59% of women said they had a negative experience with sexual harassment or assault during the program, while 95% of respondents said they knew of someone who was assaulted or harassed within the program.
"Every woman I knew down there had an assault or harassment experience that had occurred on ice," one interviewee told the report's authors. Another woman in the report called sexual assault and sexual harassment "a fact of life" in Antarctica. Several men also recounted experiencing sexual harassment by men and women, according to the report.
The inquiry also revealed that a pervasive environment of harassment and assault was compounded by fears of retaliation.
"People on station fear, and rightfully so, that if they are harassed or assaulted and report it, they will be the ones who will be going home," one person told the report's authors. "When things happened on ice, the number one thing I heard was 'don't report it or you will go home and be blacklisted from the program.'"
The NSF commissioned the report in 2021 afters years of reports of sexual misconduct. In 2018, three women came forward with allegations that Boston University geologist David Marchant had sexually harassed them during research expeditions to Antarctica while they were graduate students. He was later fired from his university . In a statement at the time, he denied the allegations.
"It wasn't surprising to me to hear some of the stories that we heard," said Roberta Marinelli, the director of the NSF's Office of Polar Programs, in an interview with NPR last year. "It's certainly disappointing."
The U.S. Antarctic Program sends more than 3,000 people — from researchers to cooks — to the bottom of the world each year. About one in three of them are women.
Over the past few months, the NSF watchdog office has been addressing complaints from Antarctica workers remotely. The upcoming visit is part of an effort to have a stronger presence on the ice, Vonder Haar added.
On Thursday, the NSF appointed Renée V. Ferranti as a new special assistant to the director tasked with sexual assault and harassment prevention and response implementation. Ferranti was previously the director of the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response program at the Peace Corps. She begins her appointment on Sunday.
"Addressing this pervasive problem remains a top priority for me and the agency, and with Renee's expertise we will continue to adapt and further accelerate our efforts to address the evolving landscape of sexual assault prevention and response," Sethuraman Panchanathan, the director of NSF said in a statement.
Correction Nov. 3, 2023
An earlier version of this story mistakenly said that investigators will be spending the next two weeks examining reports of sexual misconduct at U.S. research bases on Antarctica. Investigators will be arriving to prepare for a future on-site presence in Antarctica.

Israel tells its citizens to ‘reevaluate’ travel and not wear Jewish symbols abroad
( JTA ) — Noting a sharp rise in antisemitic attacks and expression since Hamas launched a war against Israel on Oct. 7, the Israeli government advised its citizens not to travel overseas and, if they did so, to avoid outwardly displaying that they are Israeli or Jewish.
“Given the magnitude of this, the National Security Council recommends reevaluating the necessity of foreign travel,” a government warning issued Friday said, after listing examples of increased risk for Israelis and Jews, including attacks on Jewish institutions and protests in countries that the country has not previously considered dangerous.
“The National Security Council and Ministry of Foreign Affairs have identified a significant rise in antisemitism and anti-Israel incitement, alongside life-threatening violent attacks on Israelis and Jews around the world,” it said. In particular, it specified several areas as dangerous: the Middle East, Arab countries, the region surrounding Iran and the North Caucasus. Last week, a mob stormed an airport in Dagestan , a majority-Muslim republic under Russian jurisdiction, as a flight from Israel arrived.
Notably, it specified that Israelis should exercise caution around Jewish institutions. “Jewish communities, religious and community establishments (synagogues, Chabad centers, kosher restaurants and Israeli businesses), Israeli delegations, and airports with flights to and from Israel are key targets for protests and attacks by antisemitic groups,” it said.
If one must travel, the advisory said, travelers should avoid “openly displaying Israeli and Jewish symbols and features.”
It also advised “checking whether there have been anti-Israel protests and violence at your destination, including countries for which no travel warnings have been issued”

Royal Caribbean alters 2024 cruise itineraries to skip Israel

NEW YORK, Nov 2 (Reuters) - Royal Caribbean Group (RCL.N) is removing Israel from its 2024 itineraries due to the Israel-Hamas war, according to an email sent to travel agents on Thursday seen by Reuters, making it the second major U.S. cruise operator to alter its plans over the conflict.
The Miami, Florida-based cruise operator is modifying itineraries as late as October 2024 for its Royal Caribbean International unit that stops in Israel, the email said.
Travel has declined sharply across Israel and the Palestinian territories of Gaza and the West Bank. International air carriers have halted trips to top destinations such as Jerusalem and Tel Aviv as the conflict continues.
The cruise operator did not respond to a request for comment. Competitor Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings (NCLH.N) told agents on Tuesday that it was removing Israel from its 2024 itineraries.
Royal Caribbean told investors last week that itineraries that included Israel account for less than 1.5% of its capacity for 2024.
"We don't know how long this conflict is going to go on for, which could very much inform where the consumer wants to go next year," Jason Liberty, Royal Caribbean Group chief executive officer, said on the company's Oct. 26 earnings call.
The company will also redeploy the ship meant to sail in Israel in 2024 for cruises out of Boston, Massachusetts, according to the email.
Liberty said it was too early in the European cruise season for the company to say whether the conflict was having an impact on the demand to sail in that region.
Norwegian Chief Executive Harry Sommer told investors on Wednesday that it was seeing a rise in cancellations and a slowdown in bookings to the region near Israel, primarily in short-term reservations.

Checl them out if your are looking to save on a direct flight to the Philippines. I have a love/hate relationship with Philippine Airlines. The prices are exorbant and almost criminal - over $1800 economy ticket more than a month and a half in advance? Thankfully, Leah and Chriz at 888mytravel were able to hook us up with a discounted price that went toward upgrading my mom's seat. Last time I rode PAL there were still ashtrays and our on air entertainment just sat there not working. After flying better value airlines in Asia, I expect more from a national carrier. PAL gripes aside, this is a great little travel agency with better prices (than the website). Great job 888mytravel, we will be back.

Source: Depositphotos.com Lic#169809176 ID#151990590
Are you seeing the 888 phone number everywhere and wondering what it stands for? You’ll notice these numbers on billboards, ads, company contact details, and more. 888 numbers are toll free numbers used by businesses. You can get toll free numbers such as 888 numbers with Global Call Forwarding. In this post, we will talk about:
- 888 meaning
- Benefits of an an 888 number
- How to get an 888 toll free number.
What is an 888 Phone Number?
When you type in “888 meaning” in Google, most search results will give you information about the spiritual meaning behind the 888 number. However, 888 numbers are also phone numbers used by businesses and corporations to correspond with their clients and customers.
The internet is filled with people wondering, is 888 a toll free number? Yes, the 888 number is a toll free code. And these numbers work just like 1-800 toll free numbers. Toll free numbers are numbers beginning with a three-digit toll free prefix . Prefixes currently available are: 800, 833, 844, 855, 866, 887, and 888. These numbers are preferred by businesses and their customers alike because calls made to toll free numbers charge the receiver and not the caller. Therefore, calling an 888 number is almost free for anyone calling. In cases of providers that offer text-enabled numbers, customers can also send and receive texts from toll free numbers.
Benefits of Using 888 Numbers
An 888 phone number can greatly boost the number of customer calls your business receives. This is because these numbers are free for US customers to call from within the US. Customers can call 888 toll free numbers free of cost while the call is forwarded to your business office. You can forward these calls to any location or device, wherever your sales and customer service teams reside. Help your customers reach your business easily when you get an 888 number.
How to Get an 888 Number for Your Business
You can get 888 numbers easily. These use voice over internet protocol (VoIP) systems to route calls over the internet. This is good for companies that have international clients or want to expand their business to neighboring cities and states. Calls made over an internet connection are much cheaper than through traditional phone lines, making them a viable option. So, how can you get an 888 phone number for your business? Here’s the process.
1) Find a Provider
The first step to getting an 888 phone number is researching various providers. A virtual phone number can give you added benefits and features that work over the internet, making sure you are always connected. So, you may also want to consider getting a virtual 888 number. Browse through a variety of plans available and see what rates work for you. Most rates are based on the number of minutes used or the number of users.
Global Call Forwarding has five 888 number plans: Basic, Value, Power, Premium, and Enterprise. And they are all based on the number of calling minutes you may need. We also offer a Rollover Minutes feature which lets you accumulate unused minutes and carry them forward to the next month. We recommend Global Call Forwarding for virtual toll free numbers because we have a plan for businesses of every size. And setting up your 888 number with Global Call Forwarding is quick and easy.
2) Choose Additional Features
Another thing to consider when selecting a provider is the kind of features they offer. For example, do you need features like call forwarding and call transfer? Does your company have international offices and therefore, do you need to route calls to alternate numbers during certain times of day to ensure no call is missed? Then, features like Simultaneous Ring , Time of Day Routing, etc can be very helpful. Additionally, if you want your company to seem professional to callers, setting up an interactive voice response (IVR) system may be a good idea. This will greet callers and direct them through a menu of options.
These aside, you can add additional benefits that you require such as our Hosted Call Recording feature or more. So, it is important to consider what providers can offer you and how these features can be customized for your specific needs.
3) Consider Making it a Vanity Number
Depending on the type of business you are running, you may want to consider making your 888 number a vanity number. Vanity numbers are unique and attractive numbers that utilize patterns or letters to make a statement. For example, 888-FLOWERS or 888-222-2224. Vanity numbers are easy to identify and remember which makes them a good marketing tool to have.

The only difference between 888 and 800 numbers is the toll-free prefix itself. They are both toll-free numbers and work the same way.
US residents and businesses can call 888 toll-free numbers for free. And these calls are forwarded to your office, wherever it is located. With toll-free numbers, the business pays for the calls instead of the caller. This attracts more callers to a business.
