Street harassment can be sexist, racist, transphobic, homophobic, ableist, sizeist, and or classist -   and it’s happening on streets worldwide.  Perhaps you were on the receiving end of unwanted vulgar comments that left you feeling scared, irate and uncertain how and what to do.  Holla back is a movement to end street harassment by a network of local activists around the world by using smart phones and much more.  Holla Back’s Deputy Director, Debjani Roy reveals the ugly truth of what millions of people experience every day and what you can do about it and how Holla Back’s experiment of filming a young woman walking the streets of NYC to see what verbal assault she would receive depicts just how rampant unwanted verbal abuse is.  www.ihollaback.org

 

Apple’s turning out way more than just new product!  Tim Cook, Apple CEO revealed he identifies as gay…translation – he’s gay.  You’re welcome.  This is terrific news for anyone struggling with the notion of coming out.  Way to go Tim…now what can you do for the tens of thousands of under paid and over worked overseas children and adults building Apple products???     

 

Chris Christie cancels Halloween in NJ due to Ebola breakout???  He probably pondered the notion but the viral rumor is just that but in true Christie form, he did tell a heckler to “shut up”.  Hear why Mark considers him to be far from a viable president.  

 

And Mark muses on why he thinks NYC is the marathon of marathons and talks with first time NYC marathoner Mary Wodell and why she runs and who benefits from her endless pounding the pavement.
