A new app, Woman Interrupted, listens to conversations and tracks how often men interrupt – “manterrupt” – women, a behavior that app developer BETC São Paulo refers to as “one of the types of violence against women” and “a sexist behavior.”
“At first glance, it may seem a small problem,” BETC São Paulo Co-CEO Gal Barradas said, “but reflects deeper issues of gender inequality at work and in society. The application is a way to show that, in fact, the disruption is real and alarming.”
“We want men to ask, am I doing it without realizing it?” continued Barradas. “After all, what good is having more women in a meeting room if no one listens to what they have to say?”
The app analyses users’ conversations, identifying male and female speakers and noting when a female user is “manterrupted,” and when a male user “manterrupts” a female. BETC São Paulo claims that “no conversations are recorded or stored: everything goes from voice to data, automatically.”
Still an early version, the application will eventually “present an overview of the data collected around the world” to determine in which locales women endure the most “manterruptions” and at what times “manterruption” most often occurs.
App user Henry Hobson reviewed the product, calling it “an excellent way” for women to track the “numerous times” men interrupt them.
“I am a man,” Hobson wrote, “but believe the feminists in the world like myself need to stand up and help them. That is why I went to the women’s march in Washington DC…to protest for women’s rights around the world.”
“One day,” Hobson concluded, “I hope to be a woman.”

A matador dubbed 'The Pirate' has had his glass eye knocked out after being gored by a bull during a fight in Spain. Juan Jose Padilla, who has worn an eyepatch and glass eye since he was first gored in the face by a bull in 2011, was sent flying by the powerful animal during the bullfight held yesterday at the festival of Fallas in Valencia. Dramatic pictures from inside the bullring, show the legendary matador's facial scars revealed when his eye patch flew off and his glass eye went soaring through the air. Padilla, who is known professionally as the Cyclone of Jerez, was gored in the right thigh and in the chest region during the bullfight on Sunday. After taking a few moments to recover immediately after the incident, and with a tourniquet containing the bleeding on his thigh, Padilla faced the animal again, slaying the beast and cutting off an ear, which he took with him to the clinic. He was treated by medics at the bullring before he was later transferred to the hospital where he was kept in for treatment to his injuries. He has worn an eyepatch since losing his eye in October 2011, in an incident that saw him paralysed down one side of his face after he was horrifically gored during a bullfight. The bull's horn pierced Juan Jose Padilla's jaw and emerged through his left eye socket during the grizzly incident, at the northeastern city of Zaragoza's Fiestas Del Pilar event. With blood gushing from his head, he was helped out of the ring screaming 'I can't see, I can't see'. He was lucky to survive the 2011 incident and underwent a life-saving five-hour operation to repair severe damage to his eye, bone, muscle and skin. Five months later in March 2012, he returned to the bullring in Olivenza with an eyepatch - gaining him the nickname 'The Pirate'. Months earlier, in May 2012, he suffered another mishap when a bull picked him up and threw him in the air during a fight in Madrid. He was lucky to escape serious injury when he was dashed to the ground at Las Ventas bullring, after taunting the 1,400lb animal before it rammed into his chest. In 2001 the Jerez native also suffered serious injuries to his neck during a fight in Pamplona. He then had the same eye-socket gouged again after tormenting one of the powerful animals at the La Misericordia bullring in Zaragoza, in October last year. The 43-year-old fell to the floor after being charged at by the 100-stone animal, sending his glass eye flying. He was rushed to hospital after taking a blow close to his eyepatch, in similar circumstances to the mauling which saw him lose his left eye. Undeterred by his most recent serious run-in, Padilla has vowed not to cancel the running of the bulls event that is scheduled in Castellon for the festivities of La Magdalena, which begins on March 18.
If you thought for one second the "he will not divide us" cameras were good idea, think again! It was a nonstop trollfest for Trump supporters you unleashed on the idiots protesting nonstop! Eventually the cameras were removed from all locations simply because violence at the hands of radical leftists wouldn't stop.

A circus trainer was showing off by putting his head inside a crocodile's mouth - when it snapped its jaws and bit his face. The man was entertaining crowds at a circus on Saturday night in Ha Nam province, Vietnam. The regular animal that had been performing the stunt for many years had died earlier in the day and it was left to an inexperienced younger stand-in reptile. The man puts his head inside the crocodile's mouth but seconds later it clamps down its jaws and thrashes its head from side to side. He pulls free and emerges holding his hands to his head with blood pouring down his face after the incident at the Liem Commune in the Thanh Liem district. Pham Van High, Thanh Liem District Chairman, said the circus troupe was part of the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism and officials were now investigating and speaking to witnesses. He said: 'There was rainy weather on Saturday evening but the circus entertainers did not want to betray the audience. 'Prior to the performances, the circus brought a crocodile but unfortunately it died and the replacement crocodile was put on instead. 'Fortunately, the actor was only wounded in the incident. Now he is being treated in hospital in Henan province. By this morning, the health situation of the actor was better. 'An investigation has been handed over to the police chiefs.'

A man wearing his bathrobe and carrying an armful of packages took a painful tumble on ice after rushing outside to meet a FedEx delivery truck. As warm weather made its way across the United States recently, citizens thought it meant an early end to winter, including this unsuspecting man.

The wife, who has not been named, then roped in her mother and aunt to follow her husband to the apartment.She forced the younger woman down the stairs of the building and walked her slowly into the road, flanked by her relatives. Shouting to attract attention, the group pushed her into the middle of the road and then mounted the pavement.They were eventually stopped by bystanders who stepped in to help. The video maker, named Chichi Chan, claimed that the younger woman 'accepted' her treatment as she knew she was in the wrong. 'Nobody has sympathy for the woman that gets caught doing this with another woman's husband,' she wrote. 'She was accepting of her punishment because she knows that she did the wrong thing. 'It is a good warning for other people not to do this. People should be afraid of what the consequences are.'

Preston Mitchum, a policy research analyst at the Center for Health and Gender Equity, rallied women at Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C. for a march to the White House during the Day Without a Woman strike on Wednesday afternoon.
The Day Without a Woman is an international strike in which women are to "refrain from paid and unpaid work" and "refrain from shopping in stores or online." The goal of the strike is to "highlight the economic power and significance that women have in the US and global economies, while calling attention to the economic injustices women and gender nonconforming people continue to face," according to the Women's March website.
"When abortion rights are under attack, what do we do?" Mitchum yelled through his megaphone to the crowd.
"Act up, fight back!" the crowd yelled in response.
"When trans lives are under attack, what do we do?" Mitchum yelled.
"Act up, fight back!" the crowd yelled.
Mitchum then yelled to the crowd, "When women's lives are under attack, what do we do?"
"Act up, fight back!" the crowd yelled again.

Men shouldn't punch women because they're physically weaker. But it's also wrong for women to provoke men like that knowing the man won't punch them because they can't.
