Across US, Dems enlist Latinas for top of ballot

Saturday, 4:44 PM

FILE - In this July 17, 2014 file photo, Annette Taddeo-Goldstein, right, talks to reporters during a news conference as former Gov. Charlie Crist listens in Miami. Crist picked former congressional candidate and Miami-Dade County Democratic Party chairwoman Annette Taddeo-Goldstein as his running mate. After years of running few Latinos for statewide posts, Democrats are building a bench that better reflects the support they have in the Hispanic community: more than twice as many Hispanics identify as Democrats than Republicans nationally, according to polls. This year they are showcasing this bench in key states that not only have large Hispanic electorates but enough electoral votes to swing presidential elections. The shift is crucial for a party that often fails to get its Hispanic supporters to the polls. (AP Photo/Alan Diaz)APOPKA, Fla. (AP) — The Democratic lieutenant governor candidates from Florida, Texas and Nevada all have colorful biographies: a Colombian-born business executive; a pharmacist-turned-veteran lawmaker; and a juvenile delinquent-turned-lawyer.


SpaceX returns to Earth loaded with lab results

Saturday, 3:56 PM

In this still image from an October 25, 2014, NASA video, SpaceX's unmanned Dragon spacecraft leaves the International Space Station to return to Earth after a month in orbitSpaceX's unmanned Dragon spacecraft splashed down in the Pacific Ocean on Saturday carrying a heavy load of NASA cargo and scientific samples from the International Space Station that experts hope could yield significant results. A boat was ferrying the spacecraft to a port near Los Angeles, where NASA said the haul of 1.5 tonnes of experiment results and other materials will be removed and returned to the space agency by late Monday for scientists to pick apart. The investigations in the cargo could help develop more efficient solar cells and semiconductor-based electronics, as well as grow plants better suited for space and improve sustainable agriculture, according to NASA. "This mission enabled research critical to achieving NASA's goal of long-duration human spaceflight in deep space," said Sam Scimemi, director of the International Space Station division at NASA headquarters.

MacKenzie, who had delivered the shot of the day with a spectacular ace at the par-three sixth, fired a five-under-par 65 in ideal scoring conditions on the Seaside Course to post a 12-under total of 198. In pursuit of his third career victory on the PGA Tour, the 40-year-old from North Carolina ended the round with a flourish by draining a monster putt from 44 feet at the par-four last. Dinner will taste better," added MacKenzie, who has not triumphed on the PGA Tour since the 2008 Viking Classic.

Jarrod Dyson #1 of the Kansas City Royals attempts to steal second base in the seventh inning while taking on the San Francisco Giants during Game Three of the 2014 World Series at AT&T Park on October 24, 2014 in San Francisco, CaliforniaWet basepaths at the Giants' bay-side ballpark caught the eye of Kansas City manager Ned Yost, even if they didn't dampen the Royals in a World Series win on Friday. "I thought it was a little extra wet around first," Yost said Saturday, adding that he'd noticed third baseman Mike Moustakas coming up "extremely muddy" from a dive back to first base. If that was the Giants' plan, it didn't stop the Royals from edging San Francisco 3-2 in game three. Kansas City won without attempting a steal and took a 2-1 Series lead into Saturday's fourth game of the best-of-seven set.
