  • Parking boots are being replaced by this yellow monstrosity

    If you haven’t paid your parking tickets you may soon have a face-to-face with “the Barnacle.” The yellow monstrosity, which latches on to the windshield and blocks the driver’s view, rendering the car undriveable, has already begun replacing the parking boot in cities like Allentown, Pennsylvania, and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, as part of a 60-day trial that began Sept. 23. The peculiar device is more effective than the boot at immobilizing cars and is easier to install, Kevin Dougherty, president of the New York-based Barnacle Parking Enforcement, told The Barnacle — an opaque piece of plastic held in place...

    Halloween can be scary, but it can also be... offensive? The University of Florida wants students to know that counseling is available for students hoping to work past any offense taken from Halloween costumes. “Some Halloween costumes reinforce stereotypes of particular races, genders, cultures, or religions. Regardless of intent, these costumes can perpetuate negative stereotypes, causing harm and offense to groups of people,” the school administration wrote in a blog post. “If you are troubled by an incident that does occur, please know that there are many resources available.”

    The Senate Democrats’ campaign arm is pulling the remaining money for TV advertising out of the Florida Senate race with three weeks until Election Day. This week, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) canceled its remaining ad reservations in support of Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-Fla.), a DSCC official confirmed. The move was first reported by the Miami Herald. Earlier this year, the DSCC reserved $10 million to help Murphy, who faces an uphill battle against Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). The committee has previously shifted money out of the state to invest more heavily in late-breaking Senate races, such as in...

    Republican Sens. Marco Rubio and Pat Toomey became the latest Republicans to speak out against Donald Trump's warnings of a rigged election Monday night. In separate high-stakes debates, the two incumbent U.S. senators each refuted Trump's claim that the results of the 2016 election could be tainted, and both men called for confidence in next month's vote. "Our elections may not always be completely perfect, but they are legitimate, they have integrity and everyone needs to respect the outcome," Toomey said during his debate with challenger Katie McGinty when asked about the Republican presidential nominee's allegations, which he's been repeating...

Patrick Peacock and Chris Rittenmeyer were in the Eagle's Nest diver area in Weeki Wachee, Florida, with a friend, Justin Blakely, on Saturday. They were missing for about three hours before Blakely called police to report the incident. The dive site is about 50 miles north of Tampa, and the trio was there for a three-day trip, according to WFLA. Divers have referred to the caves as the 'Mount Everest' or 'Grand Canyon' of dives. Peacock and Rittenmeyer were experienced divers, and...

That’s according to SpaceX president and COO Gwynne Shotwell, who spoke today at Euroconsult's World Satellite Business Week — a conference in Paris. "We're anticipating getting back to flight, being down for about three months, and getting back to flight in November," said Shotwell, in a video recorded by Andreas Menn, a reporter for German business magazine WirtschaftsWoche. However, Shotwell indicated that the three-month turnaround was the most optimistic scenario for the...

(Read Jay Cridlin's review of the show). Loud booing from a vocal, but small minority of the arena crowd started about halfway through the show, when Schumer's raunchy humor veered into more topical matters, including gun control and the presidential election. She has been a vocal advocate for stricter gun laws since a man opened fire during a showing of her movie Train Wreck last year,...

    SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. The man convicted of trying to kill George Zimmerman was sentenced to 20 years in prison by a judge Monday, despite arguments from his mother and wife that his trial was unfair. Lisa Apperson, Matthew Apperson's wife, complained that the media painted her husband as a monster. She also accused many witnesses of lying during her husband's trial, saying it was "disturbing" to see the "amount of perjury." Zimmerman told the court that jurors would see a different picture of Matthew Apperson, "if you were to ask his neighbors, if you were to ask the pool man."...

    It cannot be overstated just how far the preferred corporate media narrative is disconnected from reality. The real battle is for your mind.

Within the reality we find the disconnect outlining the "rigged system". Tim Kaine goes to Miami-Dade, a regional geography with millions of registered Democrat voters, to deliver a rally speech and less than 50 people show up: [Snip] Remember, this is Miami Dade, Florida, "friendly territory".

Judge Mark Walker wrote that Secretary of State Ken Detzner has one week to respond to the Oct. 3 lawsuit that seeks to allow voters who cast mail-in ballots with mismatched signatures to cast an updated ballot before the Nov. 8 election. Detzner’s lawyer contends the Department of State is not the right agency to be sued and...

There are encouraging signs for Donald Trump in Ohio. That's a vital state for the Republican presidential nominee, but a victory there would be only one of many steps he would need to win. The latest data, representing at least 758,000 ballots cast — and millions more requested — highlight Trump's difficult path to the White House.

The decision came from Trump's headquarters in New York and was announced on a conference call late Wednesday that left some Republican Party operatives in the state blindsided. Two staffers directly involved in the GOP's efforts in Virginia confirmed the decision. The move to pull out of Virginia shows Trump is "running essentially a four state campaign," with the focus now shifting to battlegrounds critical to his chances in November: Pennsylvania, Florida, North...

Mr. Gore reminded younger people in the audience that his loss to Republican George W. Bush was “very close”—so close that many Democrats believe the outcome would have been different if the Supreme Court hadn’t halted a recount of ballots.

    With a little more than 24 hours before Florida's voter registration deadline, the state's federal court ruled to extend the deadline Monday. The final day Floridians can register to vote is now Wednesday at 5 p.m. The Florida Democratic Party filed suit late Sunday to try to force state officials to extend the deadline for up to a week to allow residents who fled Hurricane Matthew to continue registering. Governor Rick Scott had refused to allow more time. Thousands of Floridians fled areas threatened by the storm, and at least a half a dozen deaths in the state have been...

    Some background info. According to exit polls: 2012 - AA were 13% of the Florida electorate. Obama took 95% of AA vote. 2008 - AA were 13% of the Florida electorate. Obama took 96% of AA vote. 2004 - AA were 12% of the Florida electorate. Kerry took 86% of AA vote. 2000 - AA were 10% of the Florida electorate. Gore took 90% of AA vote. If the AA vote goes back down to 12% from 13% of the total electorate in 2016, that would reduce Clinton's total by approximately 84,000 votes. At 11%, Clinton's total would go down...

    (CNN)A federal court has extended Florida's voter registration deadline from Tuesday to 5 p.m. ET Wednesday due to Hurricane Matthew's interruption of last-minute sign-ups.The US District Court ruling comes after the Florida Democratic Party sued, seeking an additional week due to the "strong likelihood" many of the state's voters would be "severely burdened" by the hurricane's fallout in the upcoming election. Florida Republican Gov. Rick Scott had opposed the extension, saying last week that "people have had time to register." In court papers, Marc Elias, who serves at the general counsel for Hillary Clinton's campaign, argued that Scott "unambiguously...
