Dude … gotta light? If you live in Florida you just might want to have that lighter ready as the legalization of medical marijuana will be on the November ballot! If at least 60 percent of voters agree, Florida could become the first Southern state to legalize pot for health-related reasons. The amendment will also divide the Governor’s race as Republican Gov. Rick Scott is opposed to the measure and Democrat Charlie Crist in favor. The issue was proposed by United For Care, an advocacy group headed by Orlando Attorney John Morgan. The measure passed the Florida Supreme Court by a slim 4-3 decision.
Tampa International Airport will be getting a one billion dollar upgrade starting this fall. The airport’s third floor will be remodeled and work is scheduled to be completed by 2017. The objective is to create more space inside the terminal and give people better sightlines to gates. The new layout will allow sunlight into the terminal and create an airy atmosphere. TIA will move all rental cars from the airport and construct a new $318.7-million rental car facility south of the airport with an additional $417.5-million, 1.3-mile, automated people mover that will connect to the terminal. The job will create more than 9,000 construction jobs.
Did you know that China has an advanced space program? The country has conducted spacewalks and has a space station in orbit. They also landed a six-wheeled vehicle on the moon named Yutu. It was the first soft moon landing in 37 years and proves that China has surpassed the USA in space exploration. This is one of the things that piss me off about our current administration. Stopping the space program is not only stupid, it gives other countries a huge scientific advantage over America.
