Vince Vaughn and Co. Create Stock Photos To Promote ‘Unfinished Business’

I’ve gotta admit, I have some stock in this game. Unfinished Business, which comes out this Friday, March 6th, is a film I worked on back in 2013 while I was an intern at Escape Artists. But that doesn’t make this newest promotional effort any less AWESOME. Unfinished Business sees Vince Vaughn, Dave Franco, and Tom Wilkinson take their small business to Europe to compete against a giant company for a contract. The giant company is Vaughn’s former employer, hence the title of the film. To promote the film, Twentieth Century Fox teamed up with iStock by Getty Images to

Comic Book Heroes Mixed with Mythology!

Hey everyone! Welcome to the first complete edition of The Drawing Board here on the SourceFed website. Like we said last week, we’re really excited about this format and we hope you are too. This week’s theme was Comic Book Heroes Mixed with Mythology. We had some pretty kick ass designs for this so without further ado, LET’S TAKE A LOOK! These first three all come from Ioannis Hadjikyriakou. The Speedy Messenger Well done. The Flash here is running through Centropolis, which, along with the S.T.A.R. temple, are a great couple of nods toward The Flash’s mythology. The circular stitching

Will the Electoral College Stay?

 

Last night, before midnight Barack Obama won the presidential election with both the Electoral and Popular vote.

There were a lot of predictions saying that Mitt Romney would win the popular vote with Obama winning the Electoral college, but it came as a surprise to all when the President took both.

President Obama won with 303 of the electoral votes, and 59,583,302 of the popular vote. Mitt Romney came in a close second with 206 in the electoral college and with 56,960,530 in the popular vote.

The election of the President of the United States is decided by the Electoral college and not by the popular vote, although there have been rare instances of the reverse. It’s not often that the electoral college does not mirror the popular vote and when that does happen, many voters contest the electoral college. A perfect example of this was the 2000 election of former President George Bush when he ran against former Vice President Al Gore.

The Electoral college is a particularly confusing subject for voters, most not even knowing that it even exists. Youtuber CGPGrey explains the issues with the Electoral College spectacularly:

In short, the electoral college distributes its votes in a way that leads candidates into paying attention to the needs of just a few states in an effort to gain over 50 percent of the vote. According to the math, one could feasibly win the presidency with just a scant 22% of the popular vote since the votes are by state and not by population. Many people are talking about doing away with the incredibly flawed system that is the electoral college while others fully believe that it prevents larger states from overshadowing smaller states in the election.

President Obama won most of the battleground states and those states with the most electoral votes including California, Florida, Colorado, Ohio, Virginia, and Pennsylvania.

Do you believe we should do away with the electoral college? What system would you put in its place?
