He's a former New York cop. A detective with a colorful personality. Bo Dietl says he's running for mayor of New York City.

This week we ask him why he decided to run, and why now, against an increasingly popular Mayor Bill de Blasio.

Also, the statue is called "Fearless Girl". It became all the buzz after last week's International Women's Day, appearing on Wall Street facing rather defiantly the "charging bull" of the most powerful financial district in the country.

But its message wasn't surprising.

After all a woman came close to becoming president, and that's now inspiring women of all stripes to get more involved.

The Fearless Girl on Wall Street is bringing new attention to just how much power women have in business. Or lack of power.

The numbers are not exactly without a gender gap.

Two women trying to change all that, one business at a time, are Tracy Chadwell, one of the few female venture capitalists in the country - funding companies owned by women who are engaged in socially responsible work.

And Tania Yuk, who started a company funded by Tracy that helps her clients companies engage more profitably on social media.

Finally, as predicted, President Trump's time in office is anything but boring.

And there's plenty of controversy.
