CEO StarfishMedia. Host: @MatterofFacttv this weekend! Producer of many things including 4 kids. I ❤️wine and horses.

Worth Giving: Why Socially Conscious Businesses Matter Now — Gunnar Lovelace was born in 1977 in Ibiza, Spain, in a 400-year-old house with no electricity or running water, the son of an Argentine mother who fled a military dictatorship and a Spanish father who was jailed under the fascist rule of Francisco Franco. In 1979, his mother brought him to the U.S.

Rising Son - Worth — Tim Williamson was born and bred in New Orleans, but after he received his Bachelor's in business from Tulane in 1987, the city didn't offer enough opportunities for a young would-be entrepreneur like him to stay home. Instead, he joined the management training program at Drexel Burnham Lambert in New York, then went to Bear Stearns in Boston.

Soledad O’Brien - Worth — Soledad O'Brien is an award-winning journalist, documentarian, news anchor and producer. In June 2013, O'Brien launched Starfish Media Group, a multi-platform media production and distribution company, dedicated to uncovering and producing empowering stories that take a challenging look at the often divisive issues of race, class, wealth,

What We Can Do When the War Comes Home — Delon Beckett is wasted while our cameras are rolling on him. He is tripping around his living room drunk while his three-year-old daughter, Jayla, tries to wrestle. She hits his groin so he pushes her away, then he makes for the staircase.

Soledad O'Brien: #Blacklivesfade on 2016 trail — The campaign is mostly about angry whites instead of grave police mistreatment of minorities. The Justice Department issued a scathing report on Ferguson, Mo. a year ago, confirming to the broader public what many blacks and Latinos had been saying for years: that the criminal justice system is rigged against them, sometimes with deadly results.

Soledad O'Brien on #OscarsSoWhite — In my experience, diversity doesn't just "happen." It has to be very intentional. People have to have a genuine desire to make a change. It's hard to tell what's going to happen this time around. There are some bright signs, including the fledgling efforts off the Oscars.

International Women's Day Forum 2016 — On March 7 and 8, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center and United Nations Office for Partnerships will host the 6 th Annual International Women's Day Forum. The event will convene public and private sector leaders to explore inclusive solutions that create opportunities for women and girls around the world.

What Howard Buffett Does in Africa — For hours I travel on roads with potholes big as craters deep into the Democratic Republic of Congo, then walk uphill through the dirt. This is a beautiful country, but poverty, corruption and civil war have left it lacking essential services like roads.

Race in America - Q Ideas — We all have felt the temperature rise over the last few months around the topic of race in America. As we are experiencing a once in a generation moment, how can we think well and commit to being a part of the solution that brings reconciliation and healing for all?

American Graduate Day: Closing the education gap — When I became a journalist, I began to meet so many young women who didn't have that kind of support in their lives -- like Tierra Moore, a wonderfully gifted young woman from California who was on the verge of dropping out of UCLA.

Hmmm I didn't think he was saying be super human. I felt he was saying it's a lot of work, and a slow slog.

I think the strategy of coming across as insensitive, even cruel, to a woman when you're trying to appeal to women voters: seems unwise.
