    Dynamic Dojo Talkradio: Cyberbullying: Its NOT okay.

    in Sports

    Special episode for kids and adults alike! 


    Since the rise of the Internet, cyberbullying has become rampant in many online circles. Two things make it easy for bullies to harass others online: Anonymity and distance.  It is not just a "kids problem" anymore...many adults are victims of cyberbullying, and like kids many adults don't know what to do. Adults tend to think that they should be "old enough" to take care of it, but when bullying turns into constant harassment or threats of physical violence, both age groups need to have the tools to deal with and stop the bullying.


    We invite our listeners to call in and tell us about their own experiences....either as a victim or a previous bully. Let us know your thoughts on this matter. 


    Kids all over the United States are actually killing themselves from the anguish of bullying....or worse yet, committing acts of violence themselves in retribution. Let's discuss ways to stop the downward spiral that bullying causes.

    Are Trolls Taking Control of the Internet?

    in Technology

    Look up the word "Troll" and you will find two meanings.  The first is the Scandinavian legend concerning hideous creatures whose life revolves aroung vexing humans and who turn into stone upon contact with sunlight.  The other definition is to fish using a hook and line that is pulled through the water.  Trolling on the Internet combines the worst of these two meanings, by creating hideous comments and untruths about human beings that are then pulled along by the sheer momentum of social media.  In short, online trolling is the most vile form of yellow journalism yet devised. Unlike traditional yellow journalism that can be dealt with in court by  overturning the slander and broadcasting the facts, online trolling can be difficult to defeat since the slander can snowball to take on a life of its own.  In a number of cases, trolling has been employed to cow or even stifle a journalist's right to free speech.  It has also transmogrified free speech into an insidious form of cyberbullying that threatens to undermine the rights of anyone who goes against the grain.  If you want to protect your freedom and keep from being hooked by these vile creatures, shine a light by making sure you tune into this episode of Working the Web to Win. you can also read about on our blog at this link - http://workingthewebtowin.blogspot.com/2016/02/are-trolls-taking-control-of-internet.html

    Erase the Problem of Bullying with Expert Jill Vanderwood

    in Self Help

    Bullying is not a new topic. It has been around since biblical times with such stories as David and Goliath, and Joseph whose brothers were so jealous of their father's favoritism that they sold him to the Egyptians and told their father he was dead. 


    Today, bullying has taken a a new phase with cyberbullying. Kids can be involved in bullying behind a screen, anonymously in their own homes. 


    Today's special guest, Jill Vanderwood has experienced bullying first hand. In the fifth grade she told on a boy who stole her eraser. All the boys in her class vowed to get her back. The bullying began that year and continued into high school. One boy even brought a gas mask to school for his friend who had to sit next to her in class.


    In her new book, Erase the Problem of Bullying Jill Vanderwood shares her own story along with the stories of others who have been bullied, such as NBA All Star, James Donaldson, who nearly gave up on a basketball career because of the problem he was having with bullies.


    Jill Ammon Vanderwood is the award winning author of eight books. Her books have won the Indie Excellence Award, Gold and Silver Quill from the League of Utah Writers, USA Best Books Award and the National Mom's Choice Award.

    Mr. Brett A. Scudder hosts The Suicide of Bullying and CyberBullying

    in Lifestyle

    Join Mr. Brett A. Scudder and his guest Mr. Kevin Epling, Parent Advocate, Co-Director Bully Police USA as they discuss the human condition and impacts of Bullying and CyberBullying on Youth. Mr. Epling lost a son to suicide as a result of bullying. He travels the country talking in schools, meeting with legislators and parents to address the realities of Bullycide.


    About the Tour.


    SISFI is hosting our Suicide Awareness and Prevention NY Tour on Sept. 17th - Oct 3rd across NYC, Long Island and Westchester to bring more awareness, services, programs and resources to address the increasing numbers of people facing serious life and emotional challenges, and human suffering with suicide ideations/thoughts, and supporting families who lost loved ones to suicide.


    The theme of the tour is “Look into my heart and mind, tell me what you see”. It highlights the realities of not knowing what’s in a person’s mind or on their heart by what we see on the outside, and that we must engage in dialog and allow an open and comfortable atmosphere for people to open up and express themselves.


    We have aligned 15 community workshops, 3 luncheons and 15 radio shows to bring people, mental health professionals, energy therapists, health professionals, survivors and healers together to address this very serious and important topic affecting many people in our communities. While the community workshops are local in the 3 cities, the radio shows will have guests from across the country who lost loved ones, and practitioners who specializes in the support, treatment, recovery and healing of mental health, life coaching, emotional wellness and human suffering.


    Tour schedule at http://sisfi.org/suicidetours.html. Like us on Facebook www.facebook.com/sisfi.suicideawarenesstours.


    For any questions please contact us at SISFI via (347) 817-8686 or Ask@sisfi.org.


    Thank you and God bless. #OneLove

    Cyberbullying to Zombies, Author Tom Leveen Touches Us All

    in Books

    Tom Leveen is the author of five young adult novels: PARTY, MANICPIXIEDREAMGIRL, and ZERO (a 2013 YALSA Best Book) with Random House; SICK, with Abrams/Amulet; and most recently, RANDOM with Simon Pulse. His next novel, SHACKLED, debuts in August 2015. Tom is a frequent speaker at schools and conferences, where he brings his 22 years of theatre background to booktalks and writing classes. For more information, visit tomleveen.com.


     


    RANDOM is a tense, gripping exploration of cyberbullying and teen suicide is perfect for fans of Before I Fall and Thirteen Reasons Why.


    Late at night Tori receives a random phone call. It’s a wrong number. But the caller seems to want to talk, so she stays on the line. He asks for a single thing—one reason not to kill himself.

    The request plunges her into confusion. Because if this random caller actually does what he plans, he’ll be the second person connected to Tori to take his own life. And the first just might land her in jail. After her Facebook page became Exhibit A in a tragic national news story about cyberbullying, Tori can’t help but suspect the caller is a fraud. But what if he’s not? Her words alone may hold the power of life or death.

    With the clock ticking, Tori has little time to save a stranger—and maybe redeem herself—leading to a startling conclusion that changes everything…
