I came to know Ben first through my journey to have the mission of doing oral histories of survivors of domestic violence. He hast been a great mentor and friend along the journey and I am so excited in having him on my radio show. Ben is a spokesperson for the National Organization for Men Against Sexism (www.nomas.org) and is a public speaker on issues of violence prevention. He has performed his one-man play, "Voices of Men" in 43 states and Canada. Ben has spoken and performed at colleges, high schools, military installations, public theatres, conferences, houses of worship and juvenile detention facilities. For the past 17 years, Ben has worked as a prevention educator for rape crisis centers, domestic violence programs, and state coalitions. He is an advisory board member for the White Ribbon Campaign in the United Kingdom. Ben has received recognition and praise for his work to end men’s violence against women, sexism, homophobia, racism and other forms of oppression. Ben began his activist career at age 19 in 1986 by walking 3700 miles across the United States on the Great Peace March for Global Nuclear Disarmament. He organized and walked on two 300 Mile Walks Against Violence Against Women in his home state of Massachusetts. Ben identifies as a “recovering sexist” and believes every man must challenge violence and sexism in the world and in themselves. He met and fell in love with his incredible wife, Lucinda, seven years ago while they were both doing improvisational comedy in Maine. They live in Maynard, MA and have no children except themselves. For information about Ben’s one-man play, “Voices of Men,” please go to www.voicesofmen.org. Please join my in welcoming this phenomenal man advocating for truth and change - Mr. Ben Atherton-Zeman!!
On May 31, 2014, SLENDERMAN went from fictional Internet meme to household word when two 12 year-old Wisconsin girls lured a friend into the woods and stabbed her 19 times in an effort to earn the favor of the faceless, elongated, dark-suited figure. A few days later, an emotionally disturbed 13 year-old girl near Cincinnati attacked her mother with a knife in their kitchen in the guise of Slenderman.
These real life homages are all the more disturbing because the creation of the character is readily traceable to writer Eric "Victor Surge" Knudsen on the "Something Awful" Internet forum in 2009. But as the most powerful memes do, this one seeped into the very fiber of online culture to the extent that five years later young girls were willing to kill for it.
Interestingly, AMHRadio was ahead of the Slenderman Zeitgeist. On the March 11, 2014 episode with documentary filmmakers JOSH ZEMAN and RACHEL MILLS, whose urban legend films CROPSEY and KILLER LEGENDS expose the terrifying truths behind the myths, we discussed the the Slenderman meme, with Zeman uniquely declaring the character to be the very personification of the Internet.
Now Zeman and Mills return to discuss developments in the Slenderman saga and what may lie ahead.
Dr Richard Selznick welcomes guest Ben Foss
The Dyslexia Empowerment Plan: A Blueprint for Renewing Your Child’s Confidence
Ben Foss is prominent inventor, entrepreneur and activist who founded Headstrong Nation a not-for-profit organization dedicated to serving the dyslexic community. He is also the inventor of the Intel Reader® a device CNN called “too ground breaking to ignore.” The Intel Reader® is a mobile device that takes photos of text and reads it aloud on the spot to people who have difficulty with text, creating what Ben calls “a ramp into a book.”
Identified as a dyslexic at the age of eight, Foss became successful by developing a unique approach to his disability. After years of hiding his dyslexia, he challenged himself to use it as a bridge to the rest of the world, realizing that if he thought of himself as being “from dyslexia,” he could integrate his history and harness his strengths. As a compassionate and skilled speaker, he shares this message with Fortune 500 companies, human resources and public policy organizations, and colleges and universities across the country.

14 year-old Ben Robinson played rugby for his school. After being treated three times for blows to the head and sent back onto the field following each, he collapsed and later died in hospital.
Ben is one of the rare documented cases in the world of young athletes dying from Second Impact Syndrome (SIS).
Death from sport-related head trauma, although devastating in every case, occurs less than death by other causes. Since Ben died, his dad has become an advocate for change.
Peter Robinson makes some valid points:
There should be a chain of health-and-safety procedures in place.
Responsibility for safety should be shared by players, coaches, referees and parents.
There are ways to reduce the risks and save lives.
Ben's concussion should have been spotted and his son may have survived. Peter shares with us how his family and life has been altered.

MBW services are geared toward reconstituting and rebuilding the communities in the city of Arad, Israel where they are headquartered, as well as throughout the surrounding Negev (Southern) region.
