Florida Senate Race Heads to a Hand Recount

The Hill
November 15, 2018
5:09 PM EST


The Florida Senate race between Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) and Gov. Rick Scott (R) is heading to a hand recount after the latest round of machine tallies showed the two candidates still neck and neck.

Nelson and Scott were separated by a margin of about 0.15 percentage points, according to results of a machine recount released Thursday - a narrow enough margin to trigger a hand recount under state law.

The hand recount must be completed by Sunday, in time for a Nov. 20 deadline for state officials to certify the final election results.

A manual recount does not mean that every ballot is counted by hand.
Instead, local election officials will sort through so-called overvotes and undervotes - ballots on which voters marked either more or fewer than the maximum number of selections allowed

Black security guard stops shooter in a bar - then gets gunned down by a cop

BLACK SECURITY GUARD STOPS SHOOTER IN A BAR - THEN GETS GUNNED DOWN BY COP WHO MISTOOK HIM FOR CRIMINAL


A black security guard this weekend prevented a potential mass shooting at the bar where he worked - and was then gunned down by an Illinois police officer who mistook him for a criminal

WGN TV reports that 26-year-old armed security guard Jemel Roberson was working at Manny's Blue Room Bar in Robbins, Illinois Sunday morning when he was attacked by a gun-wielding man who witnesses say had been kicked out of the bar earlier in the evening.

Roberson returned fire on the man and managed to subdue him and pin him to the ground.

However, when a Midlothian, Illinois police officer showed up on the scene, he opened fire and killed Roberson because he thought Roberson was the true assailant.

"Everybody was screaming out 'he was a security guard,' and they basically saw a black man with a gun and killed him," witness Adam Harris tells WGN TV.

Today, November 9th, is Carl Sagan's birthday

Carl Edward Sagan was born November 9, 1934 in Brooklyn, New York.
His father, Samuel Sagan, was an immigrant garment worker from today's Ukraine.
His mother, Rachel, was a housewife from New York.

Sagan claimed that his "sense of wonder" came from his father, who in his free time gave apples to the poor or helped soothe labor-management tensions within New York's garment industry.

After his family moved to Rahway, New York, e attended Rahway High School, where he was a straight A student.
By graduation, his classmates had voted him "Most Likely to Succeed."

Though only 16, he was admitted to the University of Chicago, where he earned a B.S. degree in Physics in 1955.
He went on to earn an M.S. degree in Physics in 1956, before earning a PhD in 1960.

In 1961, he published an article in the journal "Science" on the atmosphere of Venus, while also working with NASA's Mariner 2 Team, and served as a "Planetary Sciences Consultant" to the Rand Corporation.

He became an assistant professor at Harvard, where he lectured, performed research, and advised graduate students from 1963 to 1968, as well as working at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory in Cambridge, Mass.

In 1968, Sagan was denied tenure at Harvard.
Cornell University astronomer Thomas Gold invited Sagan to join the faculty there.
Sagan accepted Gold's offer and remained a faculty member at Cornell for nearly 30 years until his death in 1996.

Sagan was associated with the U.S Space Program from it's inception,
From the 1950's onward, he worked as an adviser to NASA, where one of his duties included briefing the Apollo astronauts before their flights to the Moon.

Sagan was married three times and had five children.

Isaac Asimov described Sagan as one of only two people he ever met whose intellect surpassed his own.

After suffering from myelodysplasia for two years, and receiving three bone marrow transplants from his sister Carol, Sagan died of pneumonia at the age of 62.
