How common is domestic violence?

From an entry I wrote for the Open Site encyclopedia:

Family Violence The marked reduction in domestic violence in the last decade -- and the fact that different societies and cultures have widely disparate rates of intimate partner abuse -- give the lie to the assumption that abusive conduct is the inevitable outcome of mental illness. Though the offenders' mental problems do play their part -- it would seem that cultural, social, and even historical factors are the determinants of spousal abuse and domestic violence.

The United States The National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS) reported 691,710 nonfatal violent victimizations committed by current or former spouses, boyfriends, or girlfriends of the victims during 2001. About 588,490, or 85% of intimate partner violence incidents, involved women. One of every five crimes against women was of this nature -- compared to only 3% of crimes committed against men.

Intimate partner violence against women declined by half between 1993 (1.1 million nonfatal cases) and 2001 (588,490) -- from 9.8 to 5 per thousand women. Intimate partner violence against men also declined from 162,870 (1993) to 103,220 (2001) -- from 1.6 to 0.9 per 1000 males. Overall, the incidence of such crimes dropped from 5.8 to 3.0 per thousand.

Still, 1247 women and 440 men were murdered by an intimate partner in the United States in 2000. The comparative figures in 1976 were 1357 men and 1600 women. It declined to around 1300 in 1993. So, while the number overall intimate partner crimes directed at women declined sharply - the number of fatal incidents remained stable since 1993.

And the figures mask a difficult cumulative picture:

One in four to one in three women have been assaulted or raped at a given point in her lifetime (Commonwealth Fund survey, 1998).

The Mental Health Journal says:

"The precise incidence of domestic violence in America is difficult to determine for several reasons: it often goes unreported, even on surveys; there is no nationwide organization that gathers information from local police departments about the number of substantiated reports and calls; and there is disagreement about what should be included in the definition of domestic violence."

Using a different methodology (counting separately multiple incidents perpetrated on the same woman), a report titled "Extent, Nature and Consequences of Intimate Partner Violence: Findings from the National Violence Against Women Survey", compiled by Patricia Tjaden and Nancy Thoennes for the National Institute of Justice and the Centers for Disease Control and published in 1998, concluded that there were 5.9 million physical assaults against 1.5 million targets in the USA annually.

According to the Washington State Domestic Violence Fatality Review Project, and Neil Websdale, Understanding Domestic Homicide, Northeastern University Press, 1999 -- half of these crimes were committed against women in the process of separation or divorce. In Florida the figure is even higher (60%).

Only 4% of hospital emergency room admissions of women in the United States are attributed by staff to domestic violence. The true figure, according to the FBI, is more like 50%. Michael R. Rand in "Violence-related Injuries Treated in Hospital Emergency Departments", published by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, August 1997 puts the number at 37%. One in three murdered women was done in by her spouse, current or former.

The US Department of Justice pegs the number of spouses (mostly women) threatened with a deadly weapon at almost 2 million annually. Domestic violence erupts in one half of all American homes at least once a year.

One half of wife-batterers also regularly assault and abuse their children, according to M. Straus, R. Gelles, and C. Smith, "Physical Violence in American Families: Risk Factors and Adaptations to Violence in 8,145 Families, 1990 and U.S. Advisory Board on Child Abuse and Neglect, A Nation's Shame: Fatal child abuse and neglect in the United States: Fifth report, Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, 1995

"Black females experienced domestic violence at a rate 35% higher than that of white females, and about 22 times the rate of women of other races. Black males experienced domestic violence at a rate about 62% higher than that of white males and about 22 times the rate of men of other races." -- Rennison, M. and W. Welchans. Intimate Partner Violence. U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Bureau of Justice Statistics. May 2000, NCJ 178247, Revised 7/14/00

The young, the poor, minorities, divorced, separated, and singles were most likely to experience domestic violence and abuse.

The National Institute of Justice and the Center for Disease Control estimates that 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are the victims of domestic violence each year. According to this NIJ/CDC survey, 37% of the domestic violence is against men. 100% of the federal domestic violence funding under the Violence Against Women Act is to be used for domestic violence against women. 100% of the federal domestic violence research funds disbursed to several federal agencies is devoted to domestic.

Domestic violence by women against men is not serious.......According to the NIJ/CDC National Violence Against Women survey, 10.8% of the women but only 4.1% of the men used a knife on the victim. 21.6% of the male victims were threatened with a knife, while only 12.7% of the women were so threatened. 43.2% of the male victims were hit with a hard object capable of causing serious injury, while this was true of only 22.6% of the female victims. When all serious forms of domestic assault were added together, as many assaulted men as women were seriously assaulted

All or almost all domestic violence by women is in self-defense.......A survey 0f 1,000 women, perhaps the largest survey of its kind, found that 20% had initiated violence. The most common reasons for women initiating domestic violence were: "My partner wasn't sensitive to my needs," (46%), "I wished to gain my partner's attention," (44%) and "My partner was not listening to me" (43%). "My partner was being verbally abusive to me" (38%) was a distant fourth.

Domestic violence does not affect many people.....A woman is beaten every 15 seconds. Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women between ages 15 and 44 in the united States - more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined. Battering is the establishment of control and fear in a relationship through violence and other forms of abuse. The batterer uses acts of violence and a series of behaviors, including intimidation, threats, psychological abuse, isolation, etc. to coerce and to control the other person. The violence may not happen often, but it remains as a hidden (and constant) terrorizing factor. Whether done by a man or woman.

What is a cabaret license?

I kept running the word 'cabaret' over and over again in my mind, as I thought I was familiar with its historical origins. I was thinking of the Mediterranean style brothel, where in addition to singing and dancing, women also entertained the clientele in other ways. However, cabaret commonly refers to entertainment featuring comedy, song, dance and theatre, distinguished mainly by the performance venue — a restaurant or nightclub with a stage for performances and the audience sitting around the tables (often dining or drinking) watching the performance (wikipedia). According to further research on Wikipedia, in the United States cabaret diverged into several different and distinct styles of performance mostly due to the influence of Jazz Music. Chicago Cabaret focused intensely on the larger band ensembles and reached its zenith in the speakeasies and steakhouses (like The Palm) of the Prohibition Era. It is currently undergoing a renaissance of sorts, as new generations of performers reinterpret the old forms in both music and theatre. So, to answer your question, you are basically running a business that involves food and liquor, combined with live entertainment. This requires special licensing. For example, here is an excerpt from the City of Wichita's Web site: "A cabaret license shall be required for any person to operate any cafe, cafeteria, restaurant, tearoom, dining room, coffee house, private club, tavern, drinking establishment or any other place having a floor show, specialty act, disc jockey, or other live entertainment for guests. This includes go-go dancing, and strip tease dancing." And another from the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs: "Any room, place or space in the city in which patron dancing is permitted in connection with the restaurant business or a business that sells food and/or beverages to the public. Note: This is only a general explanation of the rules regarding Cabaret licenses. You may not operate a cabaret without a license. Licensees are required to comply with all relevant laws and rules, including the Consumer Protection Law. To get a copy of the actual law explaining whether or not you need a license for this category, call 311 or come in person to the DCA Licensing Center in Manhattan at the address above."

Who is the Oakland A's rival?

The A's officially have three rivals: the Seattle Mariners, the LA Angels of Anaheim, and the Texas Rangers. This is because those three teams are all in the A's division. Out of those three teams, the rivalry with the Angels is by far the most intense. Additionally, the A's have an unofficial rivalry with the Boston Red Sox. This is due to their numerous playoff encounters, and the fact that the Red Sox fans often outnumber A's fans when the teams play in Oakland.
