The Side Jawn - Man on Fire with E Woods
Side Jawn Season 2 Episode 23: Man on Fire!!! Intro: Dennis: Welcome to the Side Jawn. I am your host Dennis the Ignoranthinkerspodcast Holmes, and my co-host is back with us, feeling better, Sharon the Chocolate Girrrrrrl! (Say it right Dennis!) How you doing Chocolate Girl? Sharon: Talks about how she's doing, asks Dennis. Dennis: talks about his week. Dennis: We got a good show for you this morning. We've got a special guest in the building. We calling the show Man on Fire because he is lighting up the airwaves and touching the youth out there in a big way. Dennis introduce the guest Dennis questions Pass to Sharon Sharon's questions You have programming which you call "Raise Your Bar" dealing with sports, life and beyond. Give a summary of what this program is about. Your program targets middle and high school student-athletes which encourages and challenges them to raise their personal bar. How would you define your personal bar to the audience watching today? Are these workshops or forums a 1 time 1 day event, or do you have an ongoing program involving different sessions? How involved are the parents in the program? Looking at what is going on in college sports now with the branding, the NIL agreements and transfer portals, what are the core teachings that high school student-athletes especially really need to focus on to prepare for such adult business and career decisions? I wanted to pivot a little and get your opinion on a couple of things. What is your view on college student-athletes getting compensated while playing in college? Some have concerns that the idea of compensating student-athletes who are amateurs will lead to the commercialization of even high school sports now to a higher degree. Do you think that is a legitimate concern? What changes would you like to see in youth sports in general? Not only what I call the travelling or circuit leagues, but community leagues as well? Does it still feel like players are playing for the love of the game anymore? Sharon sends it back to Dennis Dennis asks final questions, get final thoughts, closes out. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/dennis-holmes/support

Sharon: Tells how she is and how her week went. Asks Dennis how he is doing? Dennis: talks about his week. Dennis: We talking about bullies this week. We just finished National Bullying Awareness Month in October. Bullying is something that appears to be getting worse instead of better. So Chocolate Girl give us those stats you were talking about. Sharon: Let's first talk about What bullying is not single episodes of social rejection or dislike single episode acts of nastiness or spite random acts of aggression or intimidation mutual arguments, disagreements or fights. To be clear bullying is to seek to harm, intimidate, or coerce (someone perceived as vulnerable). More clearly, the deliberate misuse of power in relationships through repeated verbal, physical and/or social behavior that intends to cause physical, social and/or psychological harm. It can involve an individual or a group misusing their power, or perceived power, over one or more persons who feel unable to stop it from happening. Bullying can happen in person or online, via various digital platforms and devices and it can be obvious (overt) or hidden (covert). Bullying behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Youth bullying is any unwanted aggressive behavior(s) by another kid or group of kids, who are not siblings or current dating partners, that involves an observed or perceived power imbalance, and is repeated multiple times or is highly likely to be repeated. Bullying may inflict harm or distress on the targeted youth including physical, psychological, social, or educational harm. Some of these facts are astonishing: 1. More than half of people under 25 have experienced bullying at some point. 2. 20% of people surveyed, said that they often experienced verbal bullying. 3. 24% of young people are worried about getting abuse online 4. People with a physical disability, are unfortunately more likely to experience bullying than a person without a physical disability. #NotCool 5. 5% of people surveyed, said that they constantly experienced physical bullying. 6. Social exclusion is a form of bullying. That means, when your mates leave you out on purpose to hurt your feelings, they are indirectly bullying you. 7. More than a third of people go on to develop Social Anxiety and Depression as a direct result of bullying. 8. Almost a quarter of those who have been bullied have had suicidal thoughts. 9. Guys are more likely to bully someone than anyone else. 10. Those who bully are far more likely to have experienced stressful and traumatic situations in recent times. 11. Of those who bullied daily, 58% had experienced the death of a relative. 12. Bullying is not an identity, it is a learnt behaviour – find out more about that here. 13. The #1 most common reason why people experience bullying is because of attitudes towards their appearance, with attitudes towards hobbies & interests and clothing coming in close at second and third place. 14. 69% of people have admitted to doing something abusive to another person online 15. 62% of people said they were bullied by a classmate 16. People who identify as LGBT+ are more likely to experience bullying. 17. 26% of people reported experiencing cyberbullying in the past 12-months. (2019) 18. More than a quarter of people have had suicidal thoughts as a result of cyberbullying. 19. 35% of people have sent a screenshot of someone’s status to laugh at in a group chat. #ShadyOnlineBehaviour 20.
