Whitney Wolfe: No More Gunplay At Bumble

Guns and dating do not have anything in common. When most people go out on a date, they usually don’t think about taking a gun with them. Not unless they plan on shooting at a gun range or hunting in the great outdoors. Still, the average person will not bring a gun with them to go to the movies, out to eat or to sit outside under the stars.

In February of 2018, a tragic situation took place in Parkland, Florida. A young man named Nikolas Cruz killed 17 people after going on a shooting spree. Many people lost their lives and a national gun debate emerged from this situation. In the aftermath of this incident, people all over the nation (and the world) had to rethink gun laws, school violence and guns in general. Another area that was impacted by this event was social media and how users portray themselves online.

Apparently, Nikolas Cruz had a social media profile that portrayed himself using guns. He also sent crypted messages through his profile page about using his weapons. Most people just did not pick up on his behavior at the time. Those who did see something off probably just dismissed him as being crazy. Still, the signs where there.

Whitney Wolfe realized that a dating site should not be a place to display firearms. What’s the point? As CEO of Bumble, Whitney Wolfe even stated that guns just does not fit with Bumble’s values. She also pointed out that there are women on her staff who are gun owners. They even agreed to get rid of the guns from the site. This took place sometime around March of 2018.

Bumble’s leaders reported that many people were pissed off by this announcement. They threatened Whitney Wolfe and her team. Some users even stated that they were going to get the ladies at Bumble. They even sent pictures of their genitalia and guns to the staff. Whitney had to hire a police presence at her office to keep everyone safe. Whitney Wolfe also got rid of guns on her site to ensure that no one would be identified as a potential weapon toting psychopath from her site. She wants people to feel protected, safe and secure while they try to find love on Bumble. Bumble is a feminist dating app that secures safety and security to all its members.

Jim Toner Offers Some Unshakeable Advice For Real Estate Investors

Jim Toner knows quite a bit about the American recession that has been hitting the housing sector for years, now. He has watched as many Americans have been scammed and has been trying to offer advice to help them make the right investments in the real estate market. He has been a real estate investor and entrepreneur for over two and a half decades and wants investors to know that the United States is coming into a time of great possibilities in investing.

Jim Toner has been clear when he has said that an investor’s attitude has everything to do with how successful they can become. Instead of looking at the financial crash that occurred in 2008 as the fault of the real estate industry, he has turned the focus back onto investors, themselves, whose bad decisions really caused it. Right now, according to Jim Toner, the real estate market is at a low, and now is the time to buy. He believes the best thing an investor in real estate can do today is to surround themselves with smart and talented individuals that can help them to learn as much as possible.

Jim Toner has been talking about the importance of strengthening, both, our bodies and our minds. He is sure that hard work, determination, and doing things the right way will lead to an investor’s success. But, investors need to focus on their overall health and wellness to ensure that they are up-to-par and that they are clear enough to make the right decisions. Toner has admitted that he has tried to find success while he was out of shape and in poor health and that it was extremely difficult for him.

Jim Toner also suggests that everyone should laugh a little more because being too serious is not going to help lift anyone’s spirits or motivate them. Along with this, he suggests that real estate investors read plenty of books including those from well-known figures in the investment world. If you want to be rich, then the best thing you can do, according to Toner, is to stop behaving as if you were poor. See books written by Toner here.

Sean Penn’s Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff: a Satirical Exploration of Our Current Political Climate

Sean Penn has done many different things over the years. He is a well reputed Hollywood actor with an Oscar under his belt, and known for his social activism. It’s perhaps unsurprising that his latest endeavor is writing a novel. Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff was originally released as a smaller audiobook back in 2016, with Penn narrating under the pseudonym Pappy Pariah.


This longer version seems to be a caustic look into the new Trump-era, with the novel’s setting being during the 2016 presidential election. Bob is a divorced baby boomer that works odd jobs. He is a festival Carney, an expert in waste management that travels the country, and an assassin that takes out the elderly.

Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is a satirical look into not only the political landscape of America, but the social issues that have risen up. The #MeToo movement, slammed as childish, and Las Vegas shooting make an appearance in the poetic epilogue. Sean Penn seemingly uses the character of Bob Honey as a self-insert to communicate his unease of the world around him. It’s cathartic to say the least, but the narrative gets lost within the construct of social commentary. This is most noticeable near the end of the novel where Bob writes a letter to the Trump-esque presidential figure. The letter not only emasculates the representaion of Trump, but discusses almost every topic that surrounds him on the news, such as Russia.


The novel, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, is an ambitious take on today’s society and dystopic comparison of where it could be heading. There is a narrative to be had, buried among Penn’s more flavorful stylistic writing choices. Penn says about his book that, “Some people, I think, will really enjoy it, others will loathe it.” Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is weird and flawed to be sure, but Penn is able to convey his anger at the political climate by emotionally purging those thoughts through Bob. Bob Honey has much to be angry about.

Lacey and Larkin worried about state of human rights under the Presidency of Trump

Joe Arpaio is the former sheriff of Maricopa County who was recently pardoned by President Trump. The pardon was based on a court case that happened after the sheriff failed to defend his seat. One thing that has happened with the administration of Trump is that the immigrants and minorities have no say. It is clear from his conduct that he is against any immigrants living in the country.

In the first year of his presidency, he has taken a number of steps which show that he is not steady to embrace immigration in the country. The pardon of Arpaio is one of the indicators that he has no interest in making sure that all people in the country are given the same priority. Read more: Michael Lacey | LinkedIn and Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

Joe Arpaio was the sheriff of Maricopa County for 24 years. In this period, he carried out one of the worst injustices against the immigrants. He ensured that they were not given the same treatment as other people.

In his term as the sheriff. Immigrants, especially the Latinos, were treated with the worst contempt. People who should never have been harassed found themselves behind bars for no reason. This is one of the worst mistakes he committed. Indiscriminately harassing the people is against the law and this is what he did with np action being taken against him. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://james-larkin.com/recent-news/ and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Village_Voice_Media

Joe Arpaio used the two decades he was in power to harass immigrants in his county. For the longest time, he did it behind closed doors, and no one could really tell what was happening. However, the actions he was taking reached Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin who decided to take the matter head-on.

They performed investigations into the allegations of harassment and what they found out was gobsmacking. Immigrants were being killed and tortured in concentration camps which had been set up illegally.

Michael and Jim decided that they could not keep quiet as all the unlawful behavior of the sheriff was being carried out. They used the media outlets they owned to publish information which revealed the rogue activities of the sheriff.

The Phoenix New Times was used as one of the channels that highlighted the criminal activities of the sheriff. They exposed Arpaio to the world and made sure that no crime was brought to their attention was swept under the carpet. Everything was happening according to the plan.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were angered by the action taken by President Trump to pardon Sheriff Arpaio. The pardon was given months into the presidency of Donald Trump. The move was seen in many quarters as a step taken for Trump to show that he meant every bit of the things he had said about immigration.

Trump and Arpaio were supporters of the birther movement that even forced Barack Obama to show his birth certificate to prove that he was born in the United States. Arpaio and Trump believe that no immigrant should be allowed into the country. This is, however, a skewed view of the issue of immigration.
