    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

    Michelle Lobdell – author of the upcoming Real Men...Love their Wives – has spent 5 years researching and interviewing couples to create RomanceMadeEZ.com (RME), an answer to the devastation of disconnected marriages and divorce. Tune in for Michelle's advice: ** Men: Make Your Relationship “Valentines Day” Proof. ** Why 70% of Divorces Are Filed by Women: WAKE UP, HUSBANDS!  ** How the “Hook Up” Culture is Ruining Lives and Relationships ** Husbands: How to Turn Your Nagging Wife Into a Purring Kitten ** Wives: How to Turn Your Husband Back Into the Romantic Guy You Married … and more.


    Colleen O'Grady – author of Dial Down the Drama: Reducing Conflict and Reconnecting with Your Teenage Daughter, A Guide for Mothers Everywhere – is a licensed marriage and family therapist, life coach, and workshop leader, and a mom-in-the-trenches raising her own teenage daughter. Despite being an “expert”  in parenting theories , Colleen was shocked at how easily she got hooked in her daughter’s drama. Colleen discovered the missing pieces to having a healthy connection with her teenage daughter—and these same principles became the framework for her Power Your Parenting programs, blog, podcast, and weekly e-zine, that help mothers and daughters around the world.

    Clothes that Fit Your Morals

    in Environment

    Scott Leonard and Matt Reynolds, Co-Founders of Indigenous


    In this case, Indigenous is synonymous with organic, fair trade, ethically sourced and guilt free clothing. I love these two! The backstory:  On a trip to South America back in 1993, Scott encountered the priceless beauty of clothes produced by local artisans. The richness of the culture and the amazing knitting techniques prompted him to bring back more than a souvenir to his Northern California home. He returned with a vision to pioneer a new business model that would invite each of us to wear apparel that demonstrates our commitment to the people and environment. Together, Scotty and Matt have helped form a scalable artisan network through the Indigenous clothing line that reflects a commitment to sustainability, social entrepreneurship and responsible actions by consumers and business alike. These guys are fun, funny and true revolutionaries. You will never feel the same about clothing again - and that is a good thing! This show made possible due to the generous support of The Chapman Automotive Group.
