10 Things to Know About DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz's Super Progressive Challenger
2016-05-24 14:40:29 (45 minutes ago) 
Naturally, Bernie Sanders just endorsed him.

The Bernie Sanders campaign has given DNC Chair, Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, major political headaches about primaries, super delegates and the number of debates. And now Wasserman-Schultz has an even bigger problem on her hands, a primary challenger in her own Congressional district, Tim Canova. And to make things worse, this past Sunday, when asked about Wasserman-Schultz's leadership, Sanders told Jake Tapper on CNN's "State of the Union" that he would most certainly be endorsing her opponent, Tim Canova.

Here are 10 more things you should know about Tim Canova:

1. Canova is not only Wasserman-Schultz’s first challenger in the DNC, but the first in her political career according to WPBT2, South Florida's public television.

2. Canova is a lifelong activist and hopes to the democratic party will adopt a more progressive agenda. Canova has been involved in the anti-globalization movement and the Occupy movement and helped abolish felony disenfranchisement in New Mexico.

3. Canova has known Bernie Sanders for years. The law professor and finance expert campaigned for Sanders prior to receiving his endorsement and even served on Sanders' Wall Street reform advisory committee in 2011.

4. Canova’s congressional campaign has raised more than $250,000 since Bernie Sanders officially endorsed Canova this past weekend. 

5. Canova is a professor of Law and Public Finance at the Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

6. Canova may be running against Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, but “doesn’t think anyone could do both [jobs of serving in the House of Representatives and as DNC chair] effectively,” he told CNN. However, he also stated that he doesn’t believe Wasserman-Schultz is currently doing either job effectively.

7. Canova believes the biggest divide in America isn’t between Democrats and Republicans, but between the haves and have-nots. “The recent budget disputes that almost shut down the federal government were over $139 billion in cuts,” Canova told RT America in 2011. “In a budget that’s $3-4 trillion a year, it’s actually not a huge difference between the two parties.”

8. Canova sent an open letter in March to Debbie Wasserman-Schultz regarding payday lenders. “Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is pushing legislation in the House of Representatives which would help the pay day lending industry which would undermine consumer protection laws. And at the same time Wasserman-Schultz has been taking many thousands of dollars from this industry over the past decade," Canova said.

9. Canova has also sent Wasserman-Schultz several invitations to debate him before the August primary, but she refuses to answer him - or any of the pundits asking if she will, in fact, debate her opponent.

10. Canova never planned on running for political office until last year, when he "got involved in the anti transpacific partnership, trying to lobby [his] local congresswoman and getting nowhere," Canova explained at the Bernie Sanders Miami campaign warehouse launch.

"If you have a $5,000 check from a PAC, you get a response from Debbie Wasserman-Schultz," Canova added. "And a whole bunch of us thought somebody’s gotta challenge her in a primary. I didn’t think it was going to be me.”

The first volume of Injection reads like a fairytale brought into the tech world
2016-05-24 15:20:31 (5 minutes ago) 

See sample pages from this book at Wink.

Injection
by Warren Ellis (author), Jordie Bellaire (illustrator) and Declan Shalvey (illustrator)
Image Comics
2015, 120 pages, 6.4 x 10 x 0.4 inches
$7 Buy a copy on Amazon

Science meets folklore. It’s a theme that is pervasive throughout literature, from Frankenstein to Dracula to The Dragon Riders of Pern. And like its predecessors, the first volume of Injection also poses the question, what if these two things aren’t as different as we’d like to believe?

Injection reads like a fairytale brought into the modern century, combining the folklore used by its predecessors with new computers and communication systems. The story jumps backwards and forwards in time, telling the chronicle of five brilliant people with different backgrounds who came together and built an artificial consciousness to “make the 21st century more interesting.” As anyone who has seen The Matrix or Terminator films could tell you, this creation doesn’t do what the team was hoping it would. But instead of being straight science fiction, the novel joins science with the fantastic. The creation begins mimicking folklore, and the solution to defeating it seems to lie just as much in magic as it does in science.

The artwork is classically rendered graphic novel illustration, reminding me of the Hellboy series, or Sandman. What strikes me as the most interesting part of the pictures is the range of color used in them; the palette moves from dark greys and greens to brilliant oranges and reds, and some of the scenes are done in such a surreal manner you feel as though you’ve been transported to another plane altogether (which, truth be told, might just be the case). Each character is distinct in design and memorable in execution, and the different storylines interweave with each other during the telling of the tale. My favorite character remains the somewhat crazy scientist, Maria Kilbride, whose story is simultaneously dark and hopeful.

Injection proved an interesting and beautiful read, although in complete honesty I was often confused by the story. The arc is clearly designed to be resolved over several books, so I imagine this confusion was intentional, but I could have done with more background either visually or in the actual wording to get a better sense of the story they were telling. However, I still eagerly await the next installment. – Julia Pillard

A 23-year-old Westside Jacksonville man has been charged with accessory after the fact, and the arrest report case number matches that of the Jan. 29 shooting death of toddler Aiden McClendon, according to police and court documents.

Too Fat For Facebook: Photo Banned For Depicting Body In 'Undesirable Manner'
2016-05-24 14:51:28 (34 minutes ago) 
An anonymous reader shares a report on The Guardian: Facebook has apologized for banning a photo of a plus-sized model and telling the feminist group that posted the image that it depicts "body parts in an undesirable manner". Cherchez la Femme, an Australian group that hosts popular culture talkshows with "an unapologetically feminist angle", said Facebook rejected an advert featuring Tess Holliday, a plus-sized model wearing a bikini, telling the group it violated the company's "ad guidelines". After the group appealed against the rejection, Facebook's ad team initially defended the decision, writing that the photo failed to comply with the social networking site's "health and fitness policy". "Ads may not depict a state of health or body weight as being perfect or extremely undesirable," Facebook wrote. "Ads like these are not allowed since they make viewers feel bad about themselves. Instead, we recommend using an image of a relevant activity, such as running or riding a bike." In a statement on Monday, Facebook apologized for its original stance and said it had determined that the photo does comply with its guidelines.Facebook said that its team scans millions of ad images every week, and sometimes understandably misses out on a few.
