The #SuperBowl always brings with it a need for heightened #security, but this year there is an added emphasis. The San Bernardino shooting – the first terror attack on U.S. soil since 9/11 – along with the Paris attacks and a growing ISIS-related terror threat, has hastened in a new era of security surrounding major sporting events.
#SB50
The Super Bowl: After Paris, security is tighter than ever - and it includes a 'no drone zone,' heavy surveillance, new high-tech gadgets and boots on the ground.

Today’s report that former New York City Mayor Michael #Bloomberg is considering a 2016 presidential run raises a few questions. What is he thinking? Does he really think he can win? And is it worth a billion dollars of his own money?
#election2016
Michael Bloomberg (Independent): 40%; GOP candidate: 30%; Democratic candidate: 30% = a big possibility of a President-Elect Bloomberg later this year.
