Woman Records the 108 Catcalls She Gets in One Day on the Streets of New York

Oct 28, 2014 By Joey White 11

When director Rob Bliss‘s girlfriend told him how bad the catcalling was on New York City’s streets, he had to do something about it.

For 10 hours one day, Bliss walked around New York with a backpack that had a camera hidden inside. Following him was actress Shoshana Roberts, who simply walked around the city in jeans and a t-shirt. She faced over 10 incidents of street harrassment per hour over the course of that day.

This condensed video of that day shows what countless women face every day just walking down the street…

This Man’s Life Was Saved When His Nurses Sneaked His Dog to Him in the Hospital

Oct 25, 2014 By Megan Berman 0

Pets can often feel like a beloved member of the family: we count on their unconditional love and companionship, and in turn, they count on ours.

And for one man in Kentucky, this was especially true recently. 73-year-old James Wathen was so sick and weak that he couldn’t eat, or even speak above a whisper. James told his nurses how much he missed his dog, Bubba, and sensing that it might be their final goodbye, the care team conspired to reunite the best friends.

The only problem? The hospital didn’t allow for the admission of pets. Undeterred, James’ nurses worked in secret with the shelter Bubba had been taken to when James was admitted, and managed to sneak the little pup into the hospital…

Apparently, Bubba had also been doing poorly since he was separated from his best friend. According to the President of the shelter Bubba had been living in, he showed the same symptoms as James

The dog quit eating a week ago, which is very strange. The dog didn’t know where James was and James didn’t know where the dog was and believe it or not, they both stopped eating at about the same time.

Since the reunion, both James and his best friend have made a complete turnaround. And Bubba now has carte blanche to visit James in the hospital whenever he wants.

Gay Marriage Is Now Legal for Most Americans for the First Time

Oct 7, 2014 By Abraham 0

Though the Supreme Court’s decision earlier this week did not legalize gay marriage across the country, it did allow the decisions of lower courts to stand, thus immediately legalizing gay marriage in five more states. And six other states are expected to follow suit in the near future.

Evan Wolfson, founder and president of Freedom to Marry, responded with the observation…

In very short order we will see about 60 percent of the American people living in a freedom-to-marry state.

In the meantime, the Supreme Court’s decision already took us past a significant milestone…

Gay marriage is legal for over 50% of the U.S. population…

The population of states with marriage equality now totals about 165 million, with the remaining states totaling 151 million. Statistician Nate Silver lays it out for us

The momentum is strong and it’s only increasing. So, as John Oliver noted back in June, it is now only a question of which state will be the last.
