The drama never seems to end for the NFL. After years of getting a slap on the hand for violence against women, the athletes are going to face a new tough policy in the future. And the NFL hired former Manhattan prosecutor Lisa Friel as an advisor for that revamp in policy. Problem is, she is already getting wishy washy about how the policy has to look out for the athletes. So is all the hype from the NFL just that - hype?
Join us with MIchael O'keeffe, award winning sports reporter for the NY Daily News as we discuss his take on abuse in sports.

Foreign Policy, Domestic Agenda and ISIS, add them all up and you get a picture of the world that holds less promise than when BHO was elected. With one broken promise after another, we find ourselves on the edge facing a collapse. A collapse of our foreign policy, ability to deal with obvious threats from without all the while creating threats within. So what will it take to change the direction of this behemoth? What do you and I have to do to secure the future and promise of opportunity that the Founders laid at the feet of the earliest of us?
Join me to discuss the things that matter most and to ask the hard questions and disucss the tough answers. Anything that makes a difference, is sure to annoy a liberal.
Its My World You Just Live In It. The Warren Markowitz Show
Tonight’s episode is entitled, Foreign Policy & Child Soldiers, how is our country handling this? Should the United States be involved in stopping the use of child soldiers? What is the United States’ current foreign policy? What should it be? We will be discussing all these questions tonight. Let’s start out with initial reactions about the results from our personalities.
In this episode of The Red Light Sports Rant; presented by The Red Light Sports Network, Evan Witalison and Troy Otradovec talk about the 'Million Dollar Ramble'. This campaign has been put together to help raise awareness against domestic abuse. We may never be able to stop domestic violence, but we can help raise awareness, and decrease the number of cases. 1 in 4 women will be a victim of some form of domestic violence in their life. Evan and Troy will journey around the country, arriving in 46 cities, and doing 365 live shows, starting on April 14, 2015. The first show will be opening day, in Pittsburgh, and the last show will be full circle back where it started, in Pittsburgh. The purpose of the trip, is to raise awareness about domestic abuse, and to raise funds for 50 local shelters across the country. Help support the cause, we will be sellling T-shirts, and also need to secure 365 venues. The biggest obstacle is finding an RV, so that we can get from point A to point B, and have a place to rest, while on the road. Listen in and help support our cause against domestic abuse.

Domestic Violence from athletes to Judges from all walks of life comes violece againist men and women.
Verbal - Sexual - Physical Abuse
Man Up Pledge: The pledge says "I pledge never to commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women. I pledge to learn about how I can help to end violence and discrimination against women and girls and to work towards creating a community where all people are valued and safe.
On one hand, domestic violence committed by intimate partners — current or former spouses, boyfriends or girlfriends — has declined by more than 60 percent since the mid-1990s, according to Justice Department figures.
Yet the dramatic decrease from 1995 through 2004 has largely stalled, with the numbers stabilizing at a level that appalls people in the prevention field. The latest federal figures for "serious" intimate partner violence — sexual assault or aggravated physical assault — showed 360,820 such incidents in 2013, or roughly 1,000 per day.
Join Ms Reason and J Floyd as they discuss Domestic abuse. October is Domestic Abuse Awareness Month but we feel that everyday is awareness day. Domestic violence and abuse can happen to anyone, yet the problem is often overlooked, excused, or denied. This is especially true when the abuse is psychological, rather than physical. Noticing and acknowledging the signs of an abusive relationship is the first step to ending it. No one should live in fear of the person they love.
