Time Magazine’s Person of the Year?…Women who spoke out against Sexual Harrasment…

No Donald ya didn’t make it….

They went 180 degress from you and the Grand Ole Party…

TIME has named “The Silence Breakers” — the victims of sexual assault who set off a national reckoning by being brave enough to come forward with their stories — as its Person of the Year. The magazine’s editor-in-chief, Edward Felsenthal, said the choice was an easy one, as the courageous actions of these women have “unleashed one of the highest-velocity shifts in our culture since the 1960s.” 

“For giving voice to open secrets, for moving whisper networks onto social networks, for pushing us all to stop accepting the unacceptable, the Silence Breakers are the 2017 Person of the Year.” — Edward Felsenthal, editor-in-chief of TIME.

Last year, TIME named Donald Trump as its Person of the Year, a paradox that is not lost on Felsenthal. He notes that at the onset, this year did not appear to be an opportune one for women after “a man who had bragged on tape about sexual assault took the oath of the highest office in the land.”…..

Time Magazine’s Year-in-Review: No Longer Timeless …

You knew it was coming, but the reality of it is still no less shocking. No, I’m not talking about the travesty of Donald Trump and his dubious-at-best Cabinet choices–That’s a whole other story. No, I was at a Wal-Mart earlier today, and I had a chance to check out the Time Magazine end-of-the-year retrospective, and I saw where they omit mention of Keith Emerson, Glenn Frey, Christina Grimmie, Paul Kantner, Sir George Martin, Garry Shandling, and Leon Russell(he died at the same time as Leonard Cohen, and yet the latter got a not small mention) in the deaths section. This more than EXEMPLIFIES why I no longer buy that expensive dish rag of a retrospective. They mentioned Elvis Presley’s guitarist Scotty Moore, and yet several of the far more famous names–household names, even–get passed over. Oh, but Muhammad Ali(In their only solid move, he was placed at the front of the pack and given the bitter-sweet distinction of being the understood biggest death of 2016), David Bowie, the aforementioned Cohen, Prince, Gene Wilder, and such get their mandatory half-dozen/dozen or so paragraphs. What a complete waste!….

Time Magazine Affirms – Rush Limbaugh Is In Trouble


by Leslie Salzillo @ Daily Kos…..

Rush Limbaugh, eating a cigar It seems the larger mainstream media outlets like Time Magazine are starting to realize that smaller social media outlets have become a force to be reckoned with.
Last week, I published a Daily Kos diary about Wall Street Journal radio statistics. The industry numbers confirmed social media campaigns are winning the fight against hate radio, namely Rush Limbaugh. And now, Time Magazine is jumping in. Both are seeing social media groups like StopRush, BoycottRush, and FlushRush are causing Rush Limbaugh to lose sponsors, radio stations, and market standings. And these groups are supported by large and small social media news organization/blogs. Despite all of Limbaugh’s money and best efforts to squelch the protest, it just keeps growing.

Time Magazine writer, Brian Rosenwald, chimed in on Wednesday. Rosenwald is completing his doctoral dissertation. In this article he discusses how talk radio has changed politics/public policy, and how now, the internet is changing talk radio. For decades, Limbaugh could get away with atrocities like making up sick songs about AIDS victims and getting away with it. Rosenwald goes on to say it’s very different now:

Today, by contrast, every word that Limbaugh says is broadcast and archived. Watchdog groups, such as Media Matters, scrutinize every word, waiting to blast any potentially offensive statements out to the world. Whereas the opinions of non-listeners might have been irrelevant in 1988 and a boycott hard to organize, someone who considered the Elba comments to be racist could easily use social media to pressure advertisers to remove their ads from Limbaugh’s program (as many did in 2012 after Limbaugh insulted Georgetown student Sandra Fluke)….

The Selling of Sheryl Sandberg…..

The CEO of Yahoo , Marissa Mayer made news a week ago by pulling her employee’s back from working at home….

There was an outcry….

She was demonized…..

Then a few days ago it was reported that Best Buy followed Marissa Mayer’s order and told their employee’s no more working from home…

What was NOT reported in the two second media window is that Mayer HERSLF worked from home where she took care of her two kids and that Mayer has HER OWN nursey set up right outside her office….

If you’re rich….The rules get bent for ya….

Over the last several days the media has kept Mayer  name alive under the premise that she is liberating women by making decision’s that men would make .

Is she gonna provide free childcare service, like she has,  for all her employee’s who now have to come to work with young children?

Time Magazine is out with a piece on another woman who has made it to the top…

Sheryl Sandberg….

Props to her and Mayer….

But I hope these women don’t turnaround act like their male predecessors and forget about those NOT so rich….

In person, Sandberg does not give the impression that she’s bossy. She gives the impression that she was born 43, that she was delivered preloaded with the capacity and will to order people around but also the capacity and will to ensure that they thrive. Now that she is really 43, she has so perfected these skills that merely helping run a $66 billion tech company is not quite enough of a challenge. So Sandberg has taken on a new mission: to change the balance of power. That quest and her plan of attack have brought out the broadsides.

It would be un-Sandbergian to write a book and just leave it at that. Her campaign comes with LeanIn.org, a nonprofit foundation with corporate partnerships, online seminars and guidelines for establishing support groups. It’s probably not an overstatement to say Sandberg is embarking on the most ambitious mission to reboot feminism and reframe discussions of gender since the launch of Ms. magazine in 1971.


The thing is, she’s in a pretty good position to pull it off. She’s the co-pilot of the biggest network of humans the world has ever seen: Facebook’s roughly 1 billion members, most of whom are female, at least in the U.S. She’s worth hundreds of millions of dollars. And she has an undeniable record of knowing how to get things done. Her résumé, with its by-the-book stints at Harvard Business School, McKinsey and the Treasury Department, does not reek of revolutionary, but in the lineage of key feminist figures, she may well turn out to be pivotal. “In a sense it’s almost like Betty Friedan 50 years ago,” says author and historian Stephanie Coontz. “She’s talking to a particular audience, but they really need this message.”

I’ve tried to post the teaser bits available….

When Barack Obama was hatching his most elaborate campaign video, he recruited two Oscar winners–one to direct and another, Tom Hanks, to narrate. But the real star of the film was not the man looking to win a second term. It was someone who had already accomplished that.

Bill Clinton appears four times in 17 minutes. Narrowing his eyes, pointing his finger, Clinton croaks out his favorite closing arguments for Obama on the economy, the auto bailout, health care reform and foreign policy. And then he confers upon Obama the Oval Office seal of approval for sending in the Navy SEALs…

Here’s a piece with pictures of the ex-Presidents Club House ….A place I and Most other American’s probably Never knew existed!…..Here….
