The measure sets out minimum insurance requirements that include liability coverage of at least $1 million for the period from when a driver and potential passenger are matched until he or she is dropped off.
The final bill did not include a provision sought by lenders, and mulled in some earlier versions of the legislation, which would have required TNCs to ensure drivers with liens on their vehicles also maintain comprehensive and collision coverage.
The bill does require TNCs or their drivers to maintain $1 million of liability coverage while engaged in a ride and, like the Iowa bill, requires that drivers must have coverage of $50,000 per-person, $100,000 per-accident and $25,000 for physical damage during any period when they are logged in to the ridesharing app, but not yet matched with a rider. Finally, there was a bit of movement in the long-stalled effort to pass statewide ridesharing legislation in Pennsylvania, a topic we’ve covered in this space before.
All in all, not an ideal piece of legislation, but still a major step forward for the City of Brotherly Love, which received the lowest overall score in R Street’s 2015 Ridescore report card. At points over the past year, it looked like the worm was beginning to turn on the dominance of comic-book movies.
Sure, Avengers: Age of Ultron finished as the third highest-grossing movie of 2015, but it cost $30 million more and made $125 million less than its predecessor. R Street Distinguished Senior Fellow Alex Pollock was interviewed in a recent segment by CCTV America on the Puerto Rican debt crisis and steps Congress should take to solve it. R Street President Eli Lehrer took part recently in the Alternative Sentencing Key Stakeholder (ASKS) Summit, hosted in Washington by the Aleph Institute. Among all the many problems that bedevil Nina, the Nina Simone biopic that finally comes to theatres this Friday nearly two years after making its debut at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, the natural pigmentation of star Zoe Saldana does not feature among the 10 or 20 or 30 biggest. It’s true that Saldana bears not the slightest physical resemblance to Simone, even with the cosmetic enhancements and the Jan Brady fright wig. But in truth, when all is said and done, Saldana is almost certainly the best thing about this muddled mess of a picture.
Nina sees its protagonist become enamored with a handsome young psychiatric nurse, played by Selma’s David Oyelowo, who is equally taken with her, albeit in a purely platonic way. All of which might be a perfectly serviceable, if well-trodden framing device for ruminations on Simone’s life, the passions that animated her and the forces that conspired to keep her down, including her own self-destructive streak. So it goes for characters in period dramas – at least, those who also happen to be undercover Russian spies. I remember the tenebrous atmosphere of the Mexico pavilion where, through marvels of forced perspective and meticulous matte paintings of a tropical nighttime sky, a visitor was made to feel he was looking at a real volcano erupting off in the distance behind some genuine ancient temple ruins. The names Ray Bradbury and Buckminster Fuller would come to loom large for me later in my life, but they didn’t mean anything to me then. Corporate synergies of this sort need not necessarily be too much of a damper on the experience, were they not deployed in a way so contrary to the original spirit of the place – as somewhere that would inspire children to learn more about the world in which they live and the future they stand to inherit.
Israel would eventually make an appearance in the aforementioned Millennium Village, a temporary attraction that ran from October 1999 through the year 2000, and that also included exhibits for Brazil, Chile, Eritrea, Saudi Arabia, Scotland, Sweden and even Easter Island. Taken as a whole, the World Showcase is light on rides, heavy on restaurants and gift shops. To be sure, Edward Said would have a field day with World Showcase’s representations of the Constitutive Other. But even as I acknowledge the many ways in which Disney’s fast-food versions of world cultures are problematic, I also think its heart is in the right place. If Epcot’s World Showcase suffers from stagnation, its Future World has taken multiple steps backward.
Those perfect little pavilion icons are gone, having been replaced by sad and neglected directional signs.
But of all the lost and forgotten attractions I miss from the Epcot of yore, the one whose absence best illuminates how the park has changed is Horizons.
The central problem with Horizons, and with Future World more generally, can perhaps best be understood by examining its predecessor, the Carousel of Progress, which for reasons that elude millions of visitors each year, does continue to churn on at the nearby Magic Kingdom. The problem is that the gap from act three to act four continues to grow larger and larger.
In other words, the Disney Imagineers eventually just gave up, just as they have at Future World. Nonetheless, in this era of heightened xenophobia and diminished work skills, amid talk of a Great Stagnation and a giant wall on our southern border, I contend we need Epcot now more than ever. Mississippi and West Virginia have become the 30th and 31st states to pass legislation to create a statewide regulatory framework for ridesharing services offered by transportation network companies like Uber and Lyft. The law, which takes effect July 1, requires TNCs to maintain at least $1 million of liability coverage for their drivers from the moment a ride is arranged until a passenger is dropped off at his or her destination.
Drivers also would be required to undergo criminal background checks, which could be conducted by the TNC or by a third party. The law passed the state Senate unanimously and passed the House of Delegates in a 94-4 vote. He also serves as the Atlantic Council’s Global Energy Center Non-Resident Senior Fellow and as director of the Center for Energy, Natural Resources and Geopolitics at the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security. South Dakota has become the 29th state to implement statewide rules governing the operation of transportation network companies like Uber and Lyft, with news that Gov. The R Street Institute thanks the administration for the opportunity to comment on the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s proposed reforms to the federal disaster-declaration process. R Street is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, public-policy research organization that takes a pragmatic, market-oriented approach to public-policy challenges. Unsurprisingly, the number of declarations each year continue to rise over time, with researchers noting particular spikes during election years.[1] While there is some evidence to suggest natural disasters may likewise be on the rise, the rate at which disaster declarations have risen far outpaces any estimated changes in the frequency and severity of catastrophes. As contemplated by the proposed rule, state and other local governments should be required to commit a set level of resources to invest in mitigation and disaster preparedness before they would be eligible for federal grants following a presidential major disaster declaration. As FEMA establishes goals for the disaster deductible, we would encourage a relatively broad interpretation of qualifying mitigation activities.
We also believe states and localities should be encouraged to engage in risk transfer to reduce the potential for catastrophic disaster costs, such as by purchasing private insurance to cover infrastructure and public buildings. It would be appropriate to offer incentives that encourage the transfer of public-infrastructure risks to the private sector for at least two major reasons. Second, the mere process of soliciting private insurance for public infrastructure would introduce market-based price signals to government-planning decisions. After a six-month reprieve, the Hillsborough County Public Transportation Commission – the agency that regulates taxicabs and limousines in Florida’s fourth-largest county, which includes the City of Tampa – voted yesterday to resume its practice of issuing tickets to drivers for ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft who fail to meet local licensing regulations. Following a contentious 17-month period during which it went on a ticket-writing spree, the commission suspended the practice back in September 2015 in anticipation of the Florida Legislature taking up statewide standards during this legislative session. In addition to resuming tickets, the commission also voted to continue its lawsuit against Uber in the 2nd District Court of Appeal, which will determine whether it has statutory authority to regulate the ridesharing industry. The disappointing news caps what’s been a frustrating session for advocates of ridesharing. Gaetz’s bill would require $1 million in coverage any time a driver is actively engaged in a picking up or transporting a passenger. Simmons expressed interest in working with other leaders to amend his bill, potentially to include some elements of the House-passed version. But there is a ray of hope that the issue might finally be resolved next year: Gardiner will be replaced as Senate president in 2017 by Sen. I support a standard, statewide set of modern regulations to create a permanent home for ridesharing here in the Sunshine State.
Sean Speer is an associate fellow of the R Street Institute, a senior fellow at the Macdonald-Laurier Institute and a fellow at the University of Toronto School of Public Policy and Governance. That line is delivered in Zootopia, the 55th feature film from Walt Disney Animation Studios, by gruff water buffalo police chief voiced by Idris Elba, still best-known as crime boss Stringer Bell from HBO’s very un-Disney The Wire. Affirmative action is far from the only touchy subject Zootopia seeks to address, as it dives headlong into animal analogues to subjects like code switching and unconscious bias. But a lingering question is how much of it will land with the film’s intended audience.
Zootopia’s heart is certainly in the right place and the visual landscapes it crafts are tremendously creative. Before working on Capitol Hill, Ben was legislative director for a conservative nonprofit and worked on grassroots efforts in South Carolina for the presidential campaign of Gov.
Caroline joined R Street from the American Enterprise Institute, where she was a senior research associate in social and cultural studies.
Steven founded Cal Watchdog in 2009, which provides Sacramento-based investigative news coverage. R Street Governance Project Director Kevin Kosar sat down with Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform to discuss the Congressional Research Service and why its taxpayer-funded reports should be open to the public. Wallace won five Southern states (and one faithless elector from North Carolina) and Nixon won all the rest, save Texas and West Virginia.
There also continued to be southern conservative Democrats serving in Congress and as governors long after 1968.
This is even more true for the other end of the realignment – liberals and moderates (particularly in the Northeast) abandoning the GOP.
All of which is to say, as we appear to be going through yet another of our periodic realignments, that such processes are messy and often not at all clear to contemporaries. Young voters – Bernie Sanders’ bread-and-butter – are more liberal than older Democrats. America is becoming less white, and the Democratic Party is similarly growing more diverse.
The most common reason cited for why Bernie Sanders is doing more poorly among black and Hispanic voters is that he has lower name recognition than Hillary Clinton. Clinton benefits from the fact that she enjoys support both among older whites and among nonwhites. But we’ve seen the result when leadership has taken even the mildest half-steps in that direction – it is the explicitly tribal and anti-immigration backlash of the base that finds its voice in Donald J. Some have suggested, should Trump actually cruise to the nomination, that this could set the stage for yet another realignment. We are gravitating increasingly toward a two-party system in which one is the party of white people, and one is the party of nonwhite people. During periods when a driver is logged in to the ridesharing app, but not matched with a rider, the law sets minimum coverage requirements of $50,000 per person and $100,000 per accident for death or bodily injury and $25,000 for physical damage. Robert Bentley (who is perhaps facing bigger issues of his own these days), ridesharing legislation also cleared both chambers of the Alabama Legislature May 4. The Commonwealth Senate passed a bill last November, but it has remained hung up in the House, largely over the question of whether and the extent to which state authorities will be permitted to pre-empt regulation by the Philadelphia Parking Authority, which has effectively banned ridesharing. However, the Parking Authority would retain its regulatory authority and the services would be banned from picking up and dropping off at locations with established cabstands, such as Philadelphia International Airport and 30th Street Station. Marvel’s follow-up, Ant-Man, was a modest financial success from a studio accustomed to mega-blockbusters.

Comics film property did pretty well at the box office, as has Fox’s Deadpool (both have topped $350 million domestically). This approach could have gone horribly wrong, doubling down on the bloated mess that doomed Age of Ultron, but the Russos manage to make it work. The picture does offer a version of that plot — high-profile international incidents lead to a call for more governmental oversight of superheroes, sparking deep philosophical disagreements between Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) — but it smartly keeps the focus off the politics. What Civil War is, first and foremost, is a perfect popcorn picture, with a steady stream of perfectly choreographed fight and chase scene set-pieces that keep one from even noticing its 2:26 running time. As great as the action is, what’s even more impressive is that everything is very much grounded in character. Eli moderated a panel March 8, the second day of the summit, on whether federal criminal justice reform legislation would pass and whether it would make a difference. Where the film’s makeup crew actually fall most short is in their utter failure to allow any in the audience to suspend disbelief, even momentarily, that this beautiful 33-year-old actress (at the time of filming) could convincingly portray a 62-year-old alcoholic manic depressive. Her performance, while displaying more ham than an Easter dinner, clearly demonstrates that she studied Simone’s staccato mannerisms and haughty affectations pretty intensely. First-time director Cynthia Mort, previously best known as a writer for 1990s sitcoms, chooses as her window the Nina Simone of 1995 — embittered, paranoid and ready to draw a gun at the slightest provocation.
The film does offer some flashbacks, but none that illuminate how such a unique talent ended up so broken down. But Nina does manage to accomplish one final indignity that actual racist segregationists and a corrupt music industry and mental illness combined could not: It makes this towering figure of the 20th century appear small. Alas, fate intervenes in the form of a deadly bioweapon, and the Jennings family’s vacation plans are scuttled indefinitely. Indeed, every single detail was nothing short of pants-shittingly cool, down even to the icons that adorned each pavilion. Impossibly large and impossibly intricate, just as it was in my Weekly Reader – the 11,520 isosceles triangles that form the perfect geodesic sphere of Spaceship Earth. Thus, I didn’t know that the former helped to design Spaceship Earth and to write its original storyline, nor that the latter – the apostle of the geodesic dome – had given it its name and developed its underlying structural mathematics.
Naturally, it was difficult for subsequent visits to recreate the magic of that initial exposure. But I had not been back in more than 20 years until this past Friday, when my wife and I took a day trip to visit. What remains, while arguably more entertaining than their original incarnations, is a World Showcase no longer terribly interested in showcasing the world and a Future World no longer even the slightest bit interested in imagining the future. There were nine national pavilions when Epcot opened in 1982: Canada, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, Japan, Germany, China, Mexico and, as the centerpiece, the American Experience. As many as a dozen other countries were represented in some fashion in either the pre-show presentation, in an area for indigenous artisans or in what was, I can testify, a fairly impressive food court. All are staffed with natives of the respective countries, who generally are outfitted in some sort of laughably stereotypical indigenous garb (thus, fezzes and disha dashas in Morocco, lederhosen in Germany). This is perhaps inevitable with any attempt to offer capsule versions of entire (and in many cases, ancient) cultures as cheap entertainment for mass consumption. For many middle-class families – and particularly those with small children – a European vacation (much less one to more far-flung destinations like Morocco or China) isn’t financially within reach. The Universe of Energy still has its primeval diorama (albeit looking far creakier than it did 30 years ago), but the kinetic mosaic is long gone. Even just three years after its debut, when the attraction was moved to California’s Disneyland in 1967, the final act already had to be updated.
Just as with World Showcase, some of Future World’s problems were baked in to its DNA. We need dozens more pavilions exposing our children to overly simplistic treatments of foreign cultures. Any time a driver is logged in to the ridesharing app, but not actually engaged in a ride, he or she will be required to maintain third-person bodily injury coverage of at least $50,000 per person and $100,000 per incident and physical damage coverage of at least $25,000.
The legislation also specifically defined TNC drivers as independent contractors, so long as the TNC and driver both agree in writing, the TNC does not prescribe specific work hours or territories and the TNC doesn’t impose any noncompete clauses on drivers. 4228 – West Virginia’s ridesharing effort, which we covered a bit back in February – was signed March 15 by Gov. An earlier attempt to pass statewide ridesharing legislation in 2015 had been hung up by a provision that would have required companies to include protections barring companies and drivers from refusing service or otherwise discriminating against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender riders.
The discussion ends with some thoughts on what a potential Donald Trump presidency might mean for energy markets, a topic Josiah blogged about here. Last year, Sioux Falls, the state’s largest city, announced that it would apply the same requirements to ridesharing services as govern taxi drivers, including requirements to maintain commercial permits, independent contractor licenses, commercial license plates, to undergo vehicle inspections and to collect state sales tax. We welcome the proposed notice of rulemaking as one that would better protect taxpayers and citizens living in harm’s way by offering incentives for community planning and resiliency. Under the existing version of the Stafford Act, passed in 1988, the federal government generally is responsible for at least 75 percent of post-disaster costs for events that trigger a federal disaster declaration. A broadly cited 2009 estimate from the Journal of Environmental Planning and Management finds that each $1 spent on disaster mitigation saves society on average $4 in real resource costs.[4] If properly aligned, incentives such as the proposed disaster deductible offer the potential not only for reduced human misery and loss of life, but for significant reductions in costs to taxpayers.
First, smoothing the flow of catastrophe-related costs would return such concerns to ordinary budget processes, at both the local and federal level, and out of the extraordinary and highly politically charged disaster supplemental process, during which rational cost-containment efforts inevitably fall by the wayside. It would encourage state and local agencies to incorporate benefit-cost analysis about the relative advantages of retaining, transferring or mitigating infrastructure risks. If markets have the ability to aggregate information, then either markets don’t work or climate change is real.
But the session is set to close tomorrow and hopes for a comprehensive bill already are all-but-dashed. In January, the Florida House passed legislation based on the year-old national compromise between the insurance and ridesharing sectors.
But there was strong opposition from Senate President Andy Gardiner, R-Orlando, against the chamber taking up any measure that went beyond resolving insurance and liability issues.
Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman – sent a letter to Gardiner Wednesday urging the Senate to take up the House-passed bill.
It is a world where young fuzzy wuzzies are taught that “anyone can be anything,” a sentiment taken to heart by country bumpkin Judy Hopps (voiced by Ginnifer Goodwin), who strives to become the city’s first bunny policy officer. The plot follows traditional film noir conventions, as Judy teams up with a con-man fox named Nick Wilde (voiced by Jason Bateman) to uncover a political conspiracy. Based on the reactions of the children in the screening I attended — potentially, not very much. For grownups, there’s a lot to chew on, including Shakira voicing a pop-singing gazelle whose hips ought never be accused of mendacity.
In this role, he is responsible for running R Street’s West Coast office in Sacramento, California and leading R Street’s work on legislation and issues affecting the western states.
Steven also was previously vice president of journalism at the Franklin Center for Government and Public Integrity, where he managed a team of 35 investigative reporters and editors who covered state capitols across the country.
He has written for publications that include Reason, Human Events, Bloomberg and City Journal.
Eight years after 1968, Jimmy Carter won the presidency by sweeping every Southern state except Virginia. As of 2012, 22 percent of Democratic voters were black and 13 percent were Hispanic, up from 20 percent and 11 percent, respectively, in 2008.
In the party’s post-mortem following the 2012 election, party leaders made explicit the need to start attracting nonwhite (and particularly Hispanic) voters, or else cease to be a viable national party.
More moderate Republicans and perhaps even many conservatives could come around to seeing the case for Hillary Clinton as a more attractive alternative. But I want to suggest it’s possible that none actually capture what appears to be the likeliest sort of political realignment we are experiencing. Which is which is actually yet to be determined, and the specific political ideologies of those parties likely don’t matter nearly as much as we think.
The final bill sets standards for ridesharing in most of the state under the regulatory authority of the Public Utility Commission, whose existing agreements with Uber and Lyft were validated late last month in a Commonwealth Court decision that struck down a legal challenge from taxi companies. All of which puts the pressure on Marvel and Disney to return to form with Captain America: Civil War, opening this Friday nationwide. The film instead serves as an extended rumination on the nature of familial and fraternal ties, as well as the notions of loyalty and (as befits a movie that essentially serves as Avengers III) vengeance.
Each hero has motivations that make sense and each member of this huge and talented cast gets to add their own shadings. Holland, in particular, is a revelation, which is a positive sign as he prepares to launch his own franchise next year.
Panelists included John Malcolm of the Heritage Foundation, Jesselyn McCurdy of the American Civil Liberties Union and Nicole Austin-Hillery of the Brennan Center for Justice.
She even acquits herself well behind the microphone, doing her own singing and making the wise choice not to strive for a Simone impression in that arena.
Meanwhile, the plot never quite manages to shift out of neutral and the hokey and cliche-ridden script does its talented leads no favors. We first visited Epcot in November 1982 – equally five weeks after the park opened and five weeks before my ninth birthday.
I still don’t quite know why these perfectly efficient examples of clean modernist commercial design were so appealing to my young brain.
What I did know was that — walking out of the park each evening, the smell of orange blossoms on the warm Florida air, every color of the rainbow reflected off its thousands of shimmery surfaces – my not-quite 9-year-old brain could not fathom anything more beautiful. Morocco (contrary to common belief, the only one of the pavilions actually sponsored by a national government) was added in 1984, while Norway joined in 1988. The restaurants range in quality from the more-or-less passable (Morocco, France) to incredibly overpriced versions of the same sort of heavily Americanized cuisines (China, Mexico) that most visitors will find in their local strip mall back home.
Even with all its flaws, the World Showcase introduces tens of thousands of children every year to the ideas of world travel and cultural exploration. In its place is a rather stilted 1996 intro film starring Ellen DeGeneres (along with costars Bill Nye, Jamie Lee Curtis and Alex Trebek) that is every bit as much frozen in amber as any of Jurassic Park’s DNA-hording mosquitoes, if for no other reason than how little resemblance these still-recognizable stars have to their Clinton-era selves. The dark ride invited visitors to imagine daily life in any number of contingent futures – in the desert or under the sea, in towering urban skyscrapers or off into the farthest reaches of outer space. It was updated again when it moved to the Magic Kingdom in 1975 and has seen three subsequent updates in 1981, 1985 and 1993. Disney, after all, is in the business of selling admission tickets at a profit, not indulging the pitiful nostalgia of childless 40-somethings looking to recapture their youth. We need hokey dark rides about nanobots and 3D printing and driverless cars, need Elon Musk to build a mini-Hyperloop and Google to sponsor a pavilion about the Internet of Things.
Here’s to hoping that whatever form Epcot takes in the near or distant future, that big gleaming golf ball will continue to serve as a source of inspiration to all of the not-quite 9-year-olds, that they might still look up at it with awe and wonder.
The signed bill requires companies to adopt nondiscrimination policies, but limits the protected classes to those already covered under existing state anti-discrimination law.

1091 would pre-empt local requirements that ridesharing drivers maintain commercial driver’s licenses or that their vehicles have commercial license plates. Once a driver has been connected with a rider, the law requires $1 million of TNC-provided liability coverage. At the same time, we recognize that public goods, natural monopolies and externalities are real concerns that governments must sometimes address.
In some cases, the cover could take the form of catastrophe bonds or other insurance-linked securities. This would further amplify the agency’s ultimate goal of more effective cost-sharing and disaster planning, with the added benefit of better protecting taxpayers. Dana Young, R-Tampa and Dan Raulerson, R-Plant City, would have carved out an exemption from statewide deregulatory pre-emption explicitly for the Hillsborough County Public Transportation Commission. But for parents, a word of caution is in order — this isn’t your usual funny animals flick. Caroline is a native of northeastern Wisconsin and a graduate of Duke University, where she studied history and political science.
He also was senior editorial writer and columnist at the Orange County Register from 1998 to 2009. Even into the 1990s, Bill Clinton twice won Louisiana, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky and West Virginia, and also won Georgia in 1992 and Florida in 1996. We’re seeing this play out in the current Democratic primaries, with Hillary Clinton expected to begin trouncing Sanders as the race moves to states with larger black and Hispanic populations.
But another, quite clearly, is that black and Hispanic voters are among the least liberal elements of the Democratic Party.
In the even more immediate future, the party almost certainly will become majority nonwhite (if it isn’t there already). Given that many black and Hispanic voters already are more conservative than the party with which they identify, this would seem a perfectly reasonable and cogent strategy for the future. The emergence of this populist backlash – centered, as it does, on a man who dares say that George W. As crazy as it might sound, I don’t think it at all inconceivable that the Bernie Bros and Trumpistas of tomorrow end up lining up on the same side of the partisan aisle.
The measure sets the usual background check and insurance requirements, as well as rules about the age of vehicles, a minimum age for drivers (21) and requirements to accommodate drivers with disabilities. The effects keep getting better, though the single most eye-popping one this time around involves a CGI recreation of Downey’s face from 30 years ago. I remember not just the experience, but the interminable buildup: months and months of awaiting the pilgrimage to this magnetic mecca of modernism, which had been calling to me ever since I first saw the concept designs in The Weekly Reader. Perhaps even without knowing the first thing about design, I appreciated how they managed simultaneously to be both nearly inscrutable and to illuminate abstract concepts with just a few simple lines.
Despite having the room to accommodate as many as six to 10 more attractions, there have been no additions to the World Showcase lineup in the past 28 years. TestTrack dispenses with all of World of Motion’s ruminations on the past and future of human transportation systems. Disney eventually just passed the point of no return where they no longer considered it worthwhile to update the show.
We need just ONE amusement park whose goal is to inspire children to DO, not just to receive.
Somewhat unusually, the measure establishes the Mississippi Insurance Department and the state’s elected insurance commissioner as regulator of TNCs, who each would have to pay a $5,000 license fee to the department.
It sets identical insurance requirements to the Mississippi bill, as both were based on last year’s major interindustry compromise between TNCs and major insurers.
However, companies can choose voluntarily to adopt more stringent nondiscrimination policies that do include LBGT consumers.
David Simmons, R-Altamonte Springs – would have upped those levels to $125,000 per-person, $250,000 per-incident and $50,000 in property damage. The bill would retain the commission’s authority to regulate the services with required insurance and background checks, though it expressly prohibits HCPTC from banning them outright.
For example, our most recent major realignment is usually traced to 1968, when Alabama Gov. It’s that the fault lines on which the party sits seem almost guaranteed to crack in the years to come.
A simple analysis of this trend would be to extrapolate out and plot that the Democratic Party will continue to drift leftward. How will this coalition of very liberal young white voters coalesce with a party that is mostly less liberal nonwhite voters?
Or maybe it’s Trump himself who will launch the third-party bid, particularly if the nomination is wrested from him in a brokered convention.
The bill standardizes the definition of transportation network companies like Uber and Lyft and requires such firms to perform background checks on potential drivers. It doesn’t establish a statewide regulator, impose regulatory fees or include any language requiring background checks. The costumed Disney cast members who once were limited to the Magic Kingdom are now ubiquitous. Planned pavilions for Spain, Israel and Equatorial Africa (announced in the 1982 brochure below) never materialized. Other than some minor tweaks, such as replacing the television screens with HDTV flat panels in 2011, the current show is still essentially that 1993 version.
It also includes very similar language defining drivers as independent contractors, stipulated that TNCs therefore are not responsible for drivers’ workers’ compensation.
It also included an unprecedented requirement that, even when a ridesharing driver is NOT logged in to an app and thus not engaged in ridesharing at all, he or she must carry personal insurance with limits of $25,000, $50,000 and $10,000. In early February, the measure passed the House Economic Affairs Committee by a 15-1 vote, but it never made it to the House floor. The film even presents a demagogue politician who looks to stir fear of the city’s predators, who represent 10 percent of the population, as a means to higher office. The National Review, that venerable Bible of conservatism, devoted an entire issue to taking down Trump.

A number of Epcot attractions and pavilions – in both the Future World and World Showcase parts of the park – have been rejiggered to tie in more directly with other Disney properties. A planned Rhine River ride for Germany and other planned attractions for Italy and Japan also never got off the ground. All other drivers in Florida, a no-fault state, are required to carry just $10,000 of personal injury protection and $10,000 for property damage.
