Vine founder Rus Yusupov seemed to be struck by seller’s remorse on Thursday after Twitter announced plans to shutter the six-second video service. Don’t sell your company!— Rus (@rus) October 27, 2016 Yusupov, who sold to Twitter for $30 million in 2012, didn’t even know the company planned to discontinue the mobile app-based service until a reporter called him earlier on Thursday, according to TechCrunch. He used Hype, an interactive live video service he launched recently, to broadcast a stream of his favorite Vines that evening. Neither Yusupov nor Twitter immediately responded to The Huffington Post’s requests for comment. Twitter has struggled over the years with anemic user growth and weak advertising revenue. Three years after going public, the company lags far behind titans like Facebook and Google, which together pull in about 85 cents on every dollar spent on online advertising. Twitter is also plagued by any army of trolls infamous for harassing celebrities, journalists and other users. Under pressure from board member Ev Williams, CEO Jack Dorsey agreed to explore selling the San Francisco-based company earlier this year. Despite an initial bevy of big-name suitors ― including The Walt Disney Company, Google-owner Alphabet and cloud-computing giant Salesforce ― no one made an offer. Unable to find a buyer, Twitter said Thursday it would lay off 9 percent of its staff and shut down Vine. Ironically, Twitter has never seemed more vital to its audience of more than 300 million users. As BuzzFeed News’ Alex Kantrowitz wrote earlier this week: To recap the same three months: Twitter emerged as the most significant social platform in the US presidential election. It was the essential media service during the debates, providing a waterfall of commentary, fact-checking, and meme-making as candidates traded barbs. It was so much the hub of conversation that even tweets presented with no real clarifying context could be parsed, and even went viral, because seemingly everyone was tuned into the same thing at the same time in the same place. It served as the medium of choice for Donald Trump’s predawn Twitter attack on beauty queen Alicia Machado, a tweetstorm that became a central issue to both campaigns for days. In the weekend following the release of the “Trump Tape,” Twitter’s app was impossible to close as Republican after Republican tweeted updates on their support for Trump (or lack of it). In the days that followed, it was Twitter where women turned to share share stories of their own sexual assaults. And it was also Twitter where Trump turned in an effort to defend himself. The platform similarly became a critical source for updates on the Brexit fallout and the invasion of Mosul, along with the usual celebrity spats and sports commentary. No other service possesses the fast-moving, real-time environment of Twitter, and the platform provides an unparalleled window into unfolding world events. The worst corporate turbulence, it seems, can’t shatter the glass around the lightning it caught in its bottle a decade ago now, which no other company, service, or product has been able to duplicate. Vine, however, had largely lost relevance to newer platforms like Facebook Live, Snapchat and Instagram video, which proved more popular partly because they were easier to use. The app, once in the top 40 most-downloaded iOS apps, plummeted to nearly the 250th slot in recent months, according to data cited by Vice News from the analytics service AppAnnie. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Двое мужчин и две женщины, вероятно из одной семьи, погибли в результате несчастного случая, который произошел в парке развлечений Dreamworld в австралийском штате Квинсленд. Причиной инцидента стали технические неполадки на одном из водных аттракционов. Руководство парка обещает полное содействие следствию для установления причин произошедшего. Несчастный случай произошел на аттракционе Thunder River Rapids — это быстрая река с искусственными порогами, по которой движутся круглые плоты с шестью сиденьями на каждом. Скорость плотов может достигать 45 километров в час. Thunder River Rapids считается одним из самых популярных семейных аттракционов в парке Dreamworld. На плоты допускаются дети с двух лет. По предварительным данным, причиной аварии стала поломка транспортной ленты, в результате чего один плот перевернулся. На нем находились четыре человека: две женщины в возрасте 32 и 42 лет, а также двое мужчин в возрасте 38 и 35 лет. Двое из них были выброшены за борт, двоих придавило плотом. Из-за полученных травм, все четверо скончались на месте. Местные СМИ пишут, что, вероятно, погибшие были из одной семьи. Очевидцы рассказывают, что рядом с аттракционом они увидели мужчину, ноги которого были покрыты грязью и рядом с ним маленькую девочку всю в слезах. «Она сказала, что там была ее семья, она кричала и звала маму. Он (отец девочки) был просто в панике, все пытался кому-то позвонить и бегал туда-сюда. Я полагаю, что он находился на этом плоту. Он был весь в царапинах и в грязи, будто он упал», — цитирует The Guardian одного из очевидцев. Руководство парка пообещало сделать все возможное, чтобы в кратчайшие сроки установить причины, по которым произошел этот инцидент. Dreamworlds позиционирует себя как крупнейший парк развлечений в Австралии с более чем 50 аттракционами. После трагедии акции владельца парка Ardent Leisure Group упали на 7,84%. Кадр из видео с камеры в австралийском парке развлечений / YouTube.com Австралийский премьер-министр Малкольм Тернбулл сказал, что он был «очень опечален, узнав о трагической аварии». «Парки развлечений — это места для семейного отдыха и счастья, а не для трагедий», — сказал он. К сожалению, аттракционы, даже самые, на первый взгляд, безобидные, скрывают в себе большую опасность. Ежегодно тысячи детей получают травмы различной степени тяжести в парках развлечений по всему миру. Как правило, инциденты на аттракционах делятся на три категории: несчастные случаи, произошедшие по вине посетителей (несоблюдение правил безопасности), физическое недомогание из-за сильного стресса, который вызывают перегрузки на некоторых аттракционах, и технические неполадки. Бывают, конечно, исключительные случаи, которые не подходят ни к одной из этих категорий. Например, в июне этого года в парке развлечений Walt Disney World в американском штате Флорида аллигатор на глазах у родителей утащил в озеро двухлетнего мальчика. Ребенка обнаружили в 13 метрах от этого места уже мертвым. Не всем известно, что за всю историю существования «Диснейленда» погибли около 60 посетителей самого популярного парка развлечений. Справедливости ради нужно отметить, что большинство из них погибли за пределами территории парка. Два наиболее крупных инцидента связаны с вертолетной службой доставки, перевозившей посетителей из аэропорта Лос-Анджелеса в парк и обратно. Первая катастрофа произошла в мае 1968 года, тогда погибли 23 человека, включая членов экипажа. Второй вертолет потерпел крушение уже в следующем месяце, погиб 21 человек. После этого руководство парка отменило вертолетные перевозки посетителей. По статистике, в США с 1990 по 2010 годы из парков развлечений были госпитализированы в общей сложности более 92 тысяч детей в возрасте до 18 лет, то есть ежегодно серьезные травмы на аттракционах получали свыше четырех тысяч детей. Один из самых крупных инцидентов произошел в 1984 году, когда в «Замке с приведениями» на территории парка развлечений «Шесть флагов» (Нью-Джерси) начался пожар. Большинство посетителей замка отделались ожогами и отравлением угарным газом, но восемь подростков не смогли выбраться самостоятельно и сгорели заживо. Другой крупный инцидент произошел в 2010 году в китайском городе Шэньчжэнь. В результате неудачного запуска аттракциона, симулирующего космический полет, погибли шесть человек в возрасте от 24 до 48 лет. А в 1972 году пять детей погибли на британской версии «Американских горок» в лондонском парке развлечений «Беттерси». Трагедия в австралийском парке развлечений Dreamworld Исследования медиков показали, что некоторые аттракционы, особенно те из них, которые считаются взрослыми, провоцируют неврологические расстройства. Это происходит из-за чрезвычайной нагрузки на организм в связи с резкими ускорениями и разнонаправленными переворотами до 360 градусов. На «американских горках», например, большинство смертей происходят либо в результате выпадения пассажира из тележки, либо по медицинским причинам: инсульты, мозговые гематомы, нарушение функций каротидных артерий. Из-за громкого шума и ярких вспышек у посетителей парков развлечений часто случаются приступы эпилепсии. В российских парках развлечений ежегодно происходит не менее 10 несчастных случаев, в основном из-за нарушений требований безопасности. С 1 сентября все владельцы аттракционов обязаны иметь документы, подтверждающие их надежность. Ранее эти документы оформлялись в добровольном порядке. Теперь все механизированные аттракционы повышенной опасности должны проходить обязательную сертификацию.

What is that freaky sound? What is that loud “p-s-s-s-t” noise that we hear wherever we go?Not to worry. It is just the air rushing out of Donald Trump’s balloon.A balloon filled with hot air usually rises. But when you have a giant baby sitting on top of that balloon, kicking his legs while he blubbers about how life is rigged against him, that bag and that candidate are heading nowhere.Which is where Trump is heading.Here are four things he should think about on the way, just because I’ve always wanted to make a list of four things:1. Always be closing. Donald Trump lurching along the tarmac, from his jet to his limo to his podium, is not a closing argument for voters. It is just a bunch of unrelated thoughts coming from a fevered mind.So his campaign needs closers to do the job for him. Closers like Rudy Giuliani, a man so venomous that rattlesnakes have been known to grow ill after biting him.“I’d rather have a genius like Donald Trump running this country than someone like Hillary Clinton,” Giuliani said on “Meet the Press” a few weeks ago.In fairness, to Giuliani a head of cabbage is a genius. But most people have higher standards. And most people lift the bar for the presidency a little higher.Unfortunately for Trump, his opponent, Clinton, has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to closers. She has Michelle Obama, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton just to name the Big Three. After that she has Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden.I’m not sure any of them calls Clinton a genius. They just say she knows important stuff — like the date of Election Day.In 37 states and the District of Columbia, you can vote right now without giving a reason. On Election Day, Nov. 8, you can cast a regular ballot. Or you can wait until Incredible Election Day, which is Nov. 28.“We’re doing something that’s incredible, it’s a movement,” Trump told a crowd in Panama City, Florida, on Oct. 11. “There’s never been anything like this, so go and register, make sure you get out and vote Nov. 28.”You can try that. It’s 20 days too late to actually vote, but you can bang on the doors at your polling place and tell them you want the Trump Incredible Special, which is a ballot between two pieces of white bread.The good news is that on Incredible Election Day, you won’t find long lines.The bad news is that your vote will not be counted.Which actually is good news.2. It’s OK to play an audience like a violin. On Sunday, President Obama rolled up the sleeves of his open-neck blue shirt and delivered a closing speech for Hillary Clinton at a North Las Vegas high school.“You’ve got an ace and you’ve got a jack,” Obama boomed to the clamorous crowd. “But you’ve got to make sure to turn over the card by voting! This game didn’t start on Nov. 8! The game ends on Nov. 8!”Say what you want about Obama. He has not been a perfect president. He has not gotten all our troops out of Afghanistan or Iraq. Guantánamo is still open. And reversing the effects of climate change is still a few years off.But the guy knows the correct date of the election. And he knows how to turn a rip-roaring speech into a speech that chokes everybody up.“I was here in Nevada in the closing days of both my campaigns — both times you guys came through. I turned over that card and it was an ace,” Obama said as the crowd shouted its approval.“And Michelle and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the support and all the prayers these past eight years.”The crowd grew quieter now.“It has been such a privilege to serve you,” Obama said. “But we’ve got to make the right choice. Progress is on the ballot. Civility is on the ballot. Tolerance is on the ballot. Justice is on the ballot. Equality is on the ballot. Democracy is on the ballot. “My name is not on the ballot ... ”Boos filled the air, but Obama quieted the crowd. “That’s all right; that’s all right,” he said. Hillary’s name is on the ballot, he said, and she will work hard for them if they will work hard for her by making a few more phone calls and knocking on a few more doors.“We will elect Hillary Clinton to be the next president of the United States,” Obama said. “We’ll show our kids that we are still the greatest nation on Earth. And we’re just going to keep on getting better because of you.”And with lumps in their throats, the audience applauded on and on.3. You can end with a bang. Elizabeth Warren ripped Donald Trump up and down on Monday,“Donald Trump thinks because he has a mouth full of Tic Tacs he can force himself on any woman in groping distance,” Warren said. “Well, I’ve got news for you, Mr. Trump: Women have had it with guys like you!”4. Or you can end with a whimper.On Monday, Trump held a roundtable discussion in Boynton Beach, Florida. “I actually think we’re winning,” he told the group.It’s possible. They have Walt Disney World in Florida. And Trump may have wandered into Fantasyland and can’t find his way out.Roger Simon is POLITICO's chief political columnist.

A Tennessee man died last month shortly after riding the Star Tours attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World in Florida. Ralph Lyles, 67, had a pre-existing heart condition, according to the Orlando Sentinel. The incident took place on Sept. 18, but was not revealed publicly until this week, when Florida’s theme parks issued their quarterly report on safety incidents. “The cause of death was listed as hypertensive cardiovascular disease with other significant conditions contributing to death listed as obesity,” a spokesperson told the Sentinel. Star Tours has a sign warning people with preexisting conditions, including heart conditions. The warning is also online: “WARNING! For safety, you should be in good health and free from high blood pressure, heart, back or neck problems, motion sickness, or other conditions that could be aggravated by this adventure. Expectant mothers should not ride.” Lyles was a big Disney fan who visited the resort every year and joked about dying there, his niece, Bonnie Rook, told Orlando NBC station WESH. She said the family doesn’t blame the company. “There’s no blame. There’s mostly ... it’s a little bittersweet,” Rook told the station. “Obviously, he’s young and he was in good condition and it’s just a shock to us. But he did die where he said he wanted to die, so we’re trying to get a little bit of solace in that.” Lyles traveled to the theme parks with his 9-year-old grandson, according to WMC, an NBC station in Memphis. Teresa Lyles, the boy’s mother ― and Lyles’ daughter-in-law ― told the station Lyles didn’t feel well after riding Star Tours with the child and asked for a cup of ice ― then collapsed of a heart attack moments later. “He was an awesome person,” she told the station. “He was more than a grandfather.” The station reported that he had been taking heart medication. Star Tours is a 3D motion simulator ride that takes guests through several different scenes that take place in the universe of the “Star Wars” films. Disney’s Hollywood Studios is currently in the middle of a major expansion that will include a larger area dedicated to “Star Wars” attractions. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

What happens to a company when a visionary CEO is gone? Most often innovation dies and the company coasts for years on momentum and its brand. Rarely does it regain its former glory. Here's why. --- Microsoft entered the 21st century as the dominant software provider for anyone who interacted with a computing device. 16 years later it's just another software company. After running Microsoft for 25 years, Bill Gates handed the reins of CEO to Steve Ballmer in January 2000. Ballmer went on to run Microsoft for the next 14 years. If you think the job of a CEO is to increase sales, then Ballmer did a spectacular job. He tripled Microsoft's sales to $78 billion and profits more than doubled from $9 billion to $22 billion. The launch of the Xbox and Kinect, and the acquisitions of Skype and Yammer happened on his shift. If the Microsoft board was managing for quarter to quarter or even year to year revenue growth, Ballmer was as good as it gets as a CEO. But if the purpose of the company is long-term survival, then one could make a much better argument that he was a failure as a CEO as he optimized short-term gains by squandering long-term opportunities. How to Miss the Boat - Five Times Despite Microsoft's remarkable financial performance, as Microsoft CEO Ballmer failed to understand and execute on the five most important technology trends of the 21st century: in search - losing to Google; in smartphones - losing to Apple; in mobile operating systems - losing to Google/Apple; in media - losing to Apple/Netflix; and in the cloud - losing to Amazon. Microsoft left the 20th century owning over 95% of the operating systems that ran on computers (almost all on desktops). Fifteen years and 2 billion smartphones shipped in the 21st century and Microsoft's mobile OS share is 1%. These misses weren't in some tangential markets - missing search, mobile and the cloud were directly where Microsoft users were heading. Yet a very smart CEO missed all of these. Why? Execution and Organization of Core Businesses It wasn't that Microsoft didn't have smart engineers working on search, media, mobile and cloud. They had lots of these projects. The problem was that Ballmer organized the company around execution of its current strengths - Windows and Office businesses. Projects not directly related to those activities never got serious management attention and/or resources. For Microsoft to have tackled the areas they missed - cloud, music, mobile, apps - would have required an organizational transformation to a services company. Services (Cloud, ads, music) have a very different business model. They are hard to do in a company that excels at products. Ballmer and Microsoft failed because the CEO was a world-class executor (a Harvard grad and world-class salesman) of an existing business model trying to manage in a world of increasing change and disruption. Microsoft executed its 20th-century business model extremely well, but it missed the new and more important ones. The result? Great short-term gains but long-term prospects for Microsoft are far less compelling. In 2014, Microsoft finally announced that Ballmer would retire, and in early 2014, Satya Nadella took charge. Nadella got Microsoft organized around mobile and the cloud (Azure), freed the Office and Azure teams from Windows, killed the phone business and got a major release of Windows out without the usual trauma. And is moving the company into augmented reality and conversational AI. While they'll likely never regain the market dominance they had in the 20th century, (their business model continues to be extremely profitable) Nadella likely saved Microsoft from irrelevance. What's Missing? Visionary CEOs are not "just" great at assuring world-class execution of a tested and successful business model, they are also world-class innovators. Visionary CEOs are product and business model centric and extremely customer focused. The best are agile and know how to pivot - make a substantive change to the business model while or before their market has shifted. The very best of them shape markets - they know how to create new markets by seeing opportunities before anyone else. They remain entrepreneurs. One of the best examples of a visionary CEO is Steve Jobs who transformed Apple from a niche computer company into the most profitable company in the world. Between 2001 to 2008, Jobs reinvented the company three times. Each transformation - from a new computer distribution channel - Apple Stores to disrupting the music business with iPod and iTunes in 2001; to the iPhone in 2007; and the App store in 2008 - drove revenues and profits to new heights. These were not just product transitions, but radical business model transitions - new channels, new customers and new markets-and new emphasis on different parts of the organization (design became more important than the hardware itself and new executives became more important than the current ones). Visionary CEOs don't need someone else to demo the company's key products for them. They deeply understand products, and they have their own coherent and consistent vision of where the industry/business models and customers are today, and where they need to take the company. They know who their customers are because they spend time talking to them. They use strategy committees and the exec staff for advice, but none of these CEOs pivot by committee. Why Tim Cook Is the New Steve Ballmer And that brings us to Apple, Tim Cook and the Apple board. One of the strengths of successful visionary and charismatic CEOs is that they build an executive staff of world-class operating executives (and they unconsciously force out any world-class innovators from their direct reports). The problem is in a company driven by a visionary CEO, there is only one visionary. This type of CEO surrounds himself with extremely competent executors, but not disruptive innovators. While Steve Jobs ran Apple, he drove the vision but put strong operating execs in each domain - hardware, software, product design, supply chain, manufacturing - who translated his vision and impatience into plans, process and procedures. When visionary founders depart (death, firing, etc.), the operating executives who reported to them believe it's their turn to run the company (often with the blessing of the ex CEO). At Microsoft, Bill Gates anointed Steve Ballmer, and at Apple Steve Jobs made it clear that Tim Cook was to be his successor. Once in charge, one of the first things these operations/execution CEOs do is to get rid of the chaos and turbulence in the organization. Execution CEOs value stability, process and repeatable execution. On one hand that's great for predictability, but it often starts a creative death spiral - creative people start to leave, and other executors (without the innovation talent of the old leader) are put into more senior roles - hiring more process people, which in turn forces out the remaining creative talent. This culture shift ripples down from the top and what once felt like a company on a mission to change the world now feels like another job. As process oriented as the new CEOs are, you get the sense that one of the things they don't love and aren't driving are the products (go look at the Apple Watch announcements and see who demos the product). Tim Cook has now run Apple for five years, long enough for this to be his company rather than Steve Jobs'. The parallel between Gates and Ballmer and Jobs and Cook is eerie. Apple under Cook has doubled its revenues to $200 billion while doubling profit and tripling the amount of cash it has in the bank (now a quarter of trillion dollars). The iPhone continues its annual upgrades of incremental improvements. Yet in five years the only new thing that managed to get out the door is the Apple Watch. With 115,000 employees Apple can barely get annual updates out for their laptops and desktop computers. But the world is about to disrupt Apple in the same way that Microsoft under Ballmer faced disruption. Apple brilliantly mastered User Interface and product design to power the iPhone to dominance. But Google and Amazon are betting that the next of wave of computing products will be AI-directed services - machine intelligence driving apps and hardware. Think of Amazon Alexa, Google Home and Assistant directed by voice recognition that's powered by smart, conversational Artificial Intelligence - and most of these will be a new class of devices scattered around your house, not just on your phone. It's possible that betting on the phone as the platform for conversational AI may not be the winning hand. It's not that Apple doesn't have exciting things in conversational AI going on in their labs. Heck, Siri was actually first. Apple also has autonomous car projects, AI-based speakers, augmented and virtual reality, etc in their labs. The problem is that a supply chain CEO who lacks a passion for products and has yet to articulate a personal vision of where to Apple will go is ill equipped to make the right organizational, business model and product bets to bring those to market. Four Challenges for the Board of Directors The dilemma facing the boards at Microsoft, Apple or any board of directors on the departure of an innovative CEO is strategic: Do we want still want to be a innovative, risk taking company? Or should we now focus on execution of our core business, reduce our risky bets and maximize shareholder return. Tactically, that question results in asking: Do you search for another innovator from outside, promote one of the executors or go deeper down the organization to find an innovator? Herein lies four challenges. Steve Jobs and Bill Gates (and 20th century's other creative icon -Walt Disney) shared the same blind spot: They suggested execution executives as their successors. They confused world-class execution with the passion for product and customers, and market insight. From the perspective of Gates there was no difference between him and Ballmer and from Jobs to Cook. Yet history has shown us for long-term survival in markets that change rapidly that's definitely not the case. The second conundrum is that if the board decides that the company needs another innovator at the helm, you can almost guarantee that the best executor - the number 2 and/or 3 vice president in the company - will leave, feeling that they deserved the job. Now the board is faced with not only having lost its CEO, but potentially the best of the executive staff. The third challenge is that many innovative/visionary CEOs have become part of the company's brand. Steve Jobs, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Immelt, Elon Musk, Mark Benioff, Larry Ellison. This isn't a new phenomenon, think of 20th-century icons like Walt Disney, Edward Land at Polaroid, Henry Ford, Lee Iacocca at Chrysler, Jack Welch at GE and Alfred Sloan at GM. But they're not only an external face to the company, they were often the touchstone for internal decision-making. Years after a visionary CEO is gone companies are still asking "What would Walt Disney/Steve Jobs/Henry Ford have done?" rather than figuring out what they should now be doing in the changing market. Finally, the fourth conundrum is that as companies grow larger and management falls prey to the fallacy that it only exists to maximize shareholder short-term return on investment, companies become risk averse. Large companies and their boards live in fear of losing what they spent years gaining (customers, market share, revenue, profits.) This may work in stable markets and technologies. But today very few of those remain. In the 21st Century an Execution CEO as a Successor Increasingly May be The Wrong Choice In a startup the board of directors realizes that risk is the nature of new ventures and innovation is why they exist. On day one there are no customers to lose, no revenue and profits to decline. Instead there is everything to gain. In contrast, large companies are often risk-averse engines - they are executing a repeatable and scalable business model that spins out the short-term dividends, revenue and profits that the stock market rewards. And an increasing share price becomes the reason for existing. The irony is that in the 21st century, the tighter you hold on to your current product/markets, the likelier you will be disrupted. (As articulated in the classic Clayton Christensen book The Innovator's Dilemma, in industries with rapid technology or market shifts, disruption cannot be ignored.) Increasingly, a hands-on product/customer, and business model-centric CEO with an entrepreneurial vision of the future may be the difference between market dominance and Chapter 11. In these industries, disruption will create opportunities that force "bet the company" decisions about product direction, markets, pricing, supply chain, operations and the reorganization necessary to execute a new business model. At the end of the day CEOs who survive embrace innovation, communicate a new vision and build management to execute the vision. Lessons Learned Innovation CEOs are almost always replaced by one of their execution VPs If they have inherited a powerful business model this often results in gains in revenue and profits that can continue for years However, as soon the market, business model, technology shifts, these execution CEOs are ill-equipped to deal with the change - the result is a company obsoleted by more agile innovators and left to live off momentum in its twilight years A shorter version of this article previously appeared in the Harvard Business Review.

BRUNCH EDITION -- AT&T/Time Warner merger will be a BOON for business in D.C. -- CLINTON shifts focus to Senate – TOM HANKS plays CHRIS WALLACE on SNL
GOOD SUNDAY MORNING -- The new ABC tracking poll this morning has Hillary Clinton at 50 percent, up 12 points over Donald Trump who’s at 38 percent. Gary Johnson is at 5 percent, and Jill Stein at 2 percent. http://abcn.ws/2eW8IjM16 DAYS until ELECTION DAY!HUGE NEWS FOR D.C. -- “AT&T Reaches Deal to Buy Time Warner for $85.4 Billion: Wireless carrier agrees to pay $107.50 a share in half-cash, half-stock deal,” by WSJ’s Thomas Gryta, Keach Hagey, Dana Cimilluca and Amol Sharma: “The companies said they aim to be the first U.S. wireless company to compete nationwide with cable companies by providing an online-video bundle akin to a traditional pay-television package … A major question is whether regulators will be willing to bless another major consolidation in the media industry especially after misgivings from a prior deal between Comcast Corp. and General Electric Co.’s NBCUniversal. At the very least, former regulatory officials say there could be significant conditions placed on the combination.“On a conference call Saturday night, AT&T’s Mr. Stephenson played down any regulatory roadblocks, arguing that AT&T isn’t eliminating a competitor, but rather is buying a supplier, a type of combination that isn’t blocked by regulators … The companies are reviewing whether any of Time Warner’s licenses will be transferred under the deal, requiring a review by the Federal Communications Commission. Competitors are likely to sound alarms about the scale of the combined company to possibly extract concessions during the review. Walt Disney Co. Chief Communications Officer Zenia Mucha said Saturday that ‘a transaction of this magnitude obviously warrants very close regulatory scrutiny.’” http://on.wsj.com/2euR3zJ-- WHY D.C. SHOULD CARE -- AT&T is going to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to push through this merger and will hire up an army of K Streeters with connections on key committees like Energy and Commerce, House and Senate Judiciary, to influence potential problem lawmakers and key agencies. Competitors will also be watching the deal closely and could look to try to cause problems for AT&T, working behind the scenes to push lawmakers to ask questions that could embarrass the company at hearings and work connections with outside groups to get them to oppose the deal. Outside watchdogs have already started to vocally oppose the merger. The process, which will likely take up to two years to be approved, will be a boon for business in Washington. The big question everyone will be watching: What lesson did AT&T learn after its failed merger with T-Mobile in 2011, when the company spent more than $11 million on lobbying to try to get that deal over the finish line?**SUBSCRIBE to Playbook: http://politi.co/1M75UbXSUNDAY BEST -- ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos, who asked Eric Trump: “So you don’t think you’re fighting from behind right now?” TRUMP: “Maybe -- listen, maybe, but I can tell you, when I’m on the ground, the amount of love out there is -- is incredible.” ... STEPHANOPOULOS: “Do you think you might be living ... in a bubble of your own support?” TRUMP: “No, I don’t -- I don’t think so at all.”SCOOP -- OBAMA GOES ALL IN -- “Obama endorses all the way down ballot,” by Isaac Dovere: “President Barack Obama will make a late splash into races for state senate and assembly over the next week, endorsing roughly 150 candidates across 20 states. He’ll also back a candidate for Pennsylvania state supreme court. The endorsements—which will come along with a variety of robocalls, social media, mailers, photos of Obama with the candidates taken as he’s been traveling to campaign in recent weeks, and even a few radio ads—are Obama’s biggest investment in state races ever by far, and come as he gears up to make redistricting reform at the state level the political priority of his post-presidency. This is the beginning of that effort, an unprecedented engagement all the way down-ballot for any president.” http://politi.co/2f5aUo3THE MAP -- “The battle for the Senate has narrowed to these 6 states:Donald Trump's October slump doesn’t appear to be expanding the map, yet Democrats still hold the pole position,” by Burgess Everett, with Elena Schneider in North Carolina, Kevin Robillard in Pennsylvania, Seung Min Kim in Indiana and Maggie Severns in Missouri: “After all the head fakes, the millions of dollars in ad reservations made and canceled and the pleas for help from underdogs to D.C. bosses, the battle for the Senate has winnowed to six races. The Senate will be won, insiders say, in a half-dozen states that could go either way on Election Day: The traditional swing states of Nevada, Pennsylvania and New Hampshire, and the newly competitive states of North Carolina, Missouri and Indiana, which historically lean Republican.” http://politi.co/2dA8hpeNEW POLL -- Hillary Clinton maintains a three-point lead over Donald Trump in Florida (46%-43%), while in Texas – a state that has voted Republican by wide margins in recent years – Trump leads by a mere three points (46%-43%), according to a new CBS Battleground Tracker poll.-- “Buoyed by rising polls, Clinton shifts to a new target: the House and Senate,” by WaPo’s Phil Rucker, Ed O’Keefe and Mike DeBonis: “Hillary Clinton is pouring $1 million into Indiana and Missouri in the campaign’s final weeks — not because the Democratic presidential nominee thinks she can carry those reliably Republican states, but because she believes that, with an extra push, Democrats can win the Senate and governors’ races there.” http://wapo.st/2ecVcoxGOOD NEWS FOR EVERYONE! -- “Early Voting Data Shows Strengths for Trump and Clinton,” by AP’s Hope Yen: “Hillary Clinton appears to be displaying strength in the crucial battleground states of North Carolina and Florida among voters casting ballots before Election Day, and may also be building an early vote advantage in Arizona and Colorado.Donald Trump, meanwhile, appears to be holding ground in Ohio, Iowa and Georgia ... More than 5.3 million votes have been cast already, far outpacing the rate for this period in 2012.” http://abcn.ws/2eGsLNVBEING THERE -- “Clinton looks past Trump,” by Shane Goldmacher in Pittsburgh: “Hillary Clinton is done with Donald Trump. Using her most dismissive language of the campaign — ‘I don’t even think about responding to him anymore’ — Clinton said Saturday she is now more focused on electing other Democrats in the final days of the 2016 campaign than her Republican opponent. ‘As we’re traveling in these last 17 days we’re going to be emphasizing the importance of electing Democrats down the ballot,’ Clinton told reporters aboard her campaign plane. It was the surest declaration of confidence yet from a candidate and a campaign that enters the home stretch in so commanding a position that they are redirecting cash and manpower to traditionally red states, including Arizona, Missouri, Indiana and Georgia.” http://politi.co/2dyAt0D-- NYT A23, “Donald Trump Pledges to ‘Heal Divisions’ (and Sue His Accusers),” by Ashley Parker and Amy Chozick in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania: “Donald J. Trump came to this historic battlefield town Saturday to offer his vision for America’s future, saying he hoped to ‘heal the divisions’ of the country as President Lincoln tried to do here seven score and 13 years ago. Yet in his own Gettysburg address, Mr. Trump, who has been sliding in the polls less than three weeks before Election Day, did not offer much in the way of race-changing oratory and did not seem to embrace Lincoln’s unifying ambition. Instead, the Republican nominee used the first third of what had been promoted as a ‘closing argument’ speech to nurse personal grievances, grumbling about ‘the rigging of this election’ and ‘the dishonest mainstream media,’ and threatening to sue the women who have come forward — an 11th woman did on Saturday — to accuse him of aggressive sexual advances.” http://nyti.ms/2e0Cr5QBUZZ -- DNC UPS SECURITY PROTOCOLS -- The Democratic National Committee wasn’t taking any chances after its embarrassing email hack.

So what happened?,” by Boston Globe’s Victoria McGrane: “Trump’s candidacy is doing more than turning women away from the top of the ticket. He is alienating scores of them from the GOP more broadly, including some of the party’s most dedicated foot soldiers. It’s a dynamic that some, but not all, Republicans fear will inflict lasting damage on the party’s ability to attract female voters, a key constituency they already struggled with before the improbable rise of Trump. Trump’s woman problem has become the Republican Party’s woman problem, and it could hurt the GOP in national and state elections beyond 2016, analysts as well as some Republicans say.” http://bit.ly/2ec4vFf-- @danmericaCNN: “Robby Mook asked by @jaketapper if any of Trump’s accusers have had contact with the Clinton campaign. ‘Not that I’m aware of,’ he said.”DEPT. OF YA CAN’T MAKE IT UP -- “Lobbyist-bashing Trump was once a lobbyist,” by Ben Schreckinger: “Trump was a registered lobbyist in Rhode Island from April 2006 through the end of that year, according to state records reviewed by POLITICO. The businessman was registered to lobby on behalf of Trump Entertainment Resorts Holdings, the casino operator in which he was then a minority shareholder, and received $4,000 per month for the work ... At the time, Trump was promoting a proposed casino in the town of Johnston, according to a brief item in the April 25, 2006, edition of the Providence Journal. The journal reported, ‘One of Trump’s operatives filed an application and paid the $5 registration fee that entitles him to walk the State House corridors, with a lobbyist badge on his jacket.’” http://politi.co/2eVV5kx -- “Trump advisers went to strip club with members of media,” by Page Six’s Emily Smith and Carlos Greer: “Page Six has exclusively learned that a trio of senior Trump advisers was fixated on a different type of ‘pole’ the night before Trump’s final debate with Clinton this past week in Las Vegas.

The move reflects struggles throughout the Republican coalition, though for LGBT conservatives it’s been particularly wrenching. Trump’s rhetoric, they say, has been more pro-gay than any presidential nominee in history.” http://politi.co/2ejzQaqSHOCKER – “The New Yorker Endorses Hillary Clinton” in a special 5-page “Talk of the Town” column entirely devoted to the race: “The election of Hillary Clinton is an event that we will welcome for its immense historical importance, and greet with indescribable relief. It will be especially gratifying to have a woman as commander-in-chief after such a sickeningly sexist and racist campaign, one that exposed so starkly how far our society has to go. The vileness of her opponent’s rhetoric and his record has been so widely aired that we can only hope she will be able to use her office and her impressive resolve to battle prejudice wherever it may be found.” http://bit.ly/2f56zkR--Adelson-owned Las Vegas Review-Journal endorses Trump: http://bit.ly/2ejX8giFRANK SERPICO in Politico Magazine, “Penetrating the Police Brotherhood”: “[W]hen Terrence M.
