We can't help but shake our heads at this.

Bill Cosby is set to give speeches to "young athletes" and "married men" about how to avoid sexual assault allegations.

Yes, really.

Cosby's trial for sexual assault was thrown out last week due to a mistrial after jurors couldn't come to an agreement on his guilt.

While waiting for a new trial to begin, the former TV star is going to hold a series of talks not on consent, but on how “young athletes” and “married men” can avoid accusations “when they are doing certain things they shouldn’t be doing.”

CNN reports that Bill's publicists announced the news during an interview on Good Day Alabama.

Instead of focusing on consent (which should be a priority for everyone, tbh), he's going to tell people the ins and outs of how long it takes legal proceedings to begin, and how men can handle the "issue" of being accused of sexual assault.

One of his publicists, Andrew Wyatt, said: “This issue [of being accused of assault] can affect any young person – especially young athletes of today and they need to know what they are facing when they are hanging out and partying, when they are doing certain things they shouldn’t be doing.”

He added: “And it also affects married men.”

Later that day, Mr Wyatt told Rolling Stone: “It’s important to educate people that you could be at a baseball game and it could be crowded and a young man could try to squeeze through and accidentally touch a young lady's butt or breast by mistake and that could be considered sexual assault.

"It's imperative that we educate people that want to be educated.”

He told the magazine that Bill is due to begin his talks next month.

Cosby's case ended in a mistrial on June 17 after 52 hours of juror deliberations.

One juror anonymously said that the jury was split down the middle, while another juror told a publication that it was 10-2 in favour of finding him guilty.



The Bus Éireann strike has now reached day twenty, and a discussion to resolve the dispute will kick off at the Labour Court this morning. 

The strike has caused chaos for commuters, particularly in rural areas of the country. 

The first session of talks at the Labour Court ended yesterday afternoon after it was adjourned to "allow further talks between management and unions to clarify certain issues," according to RTÉ.

The decision was made to send the issue to the Labour Court yesterday, after talks at the Workplace Relations Commission ended without resolution. 

"After 16 days of intensive negotiations at the Workplace Relations Commission, talks have broken down without agreement," Bus Eireann confirmed.

"The unions have now referred a number of issues to the Labour Court and the company have agreed to attend."

The hearing will begin at 10.30am.

All Bus Éireann services are on strike, except for school bus services. 



Talks aimed at resolving the dispute at Bus Éireann are continuing at the Workplace Relations Commission this morning.

Talks were adjourned early yesterday morning without agreement.

Bus Éireann has now been striking for over two weeks, and thousands of commuters across Ireland have been impacted. 

No services, other than school bus services, have been in operation since March 14. 

Last Friday there was uproar across the country as Dublin Bus, Irish Rail and Dart Services all engaged in secondary strike action in solidarity with Bus Éireann, essentially bringing the country to a stand still. 

However, the core issues of the Bus Éireann dispute still have not been resolved.
