Hi! pretty much as the title says, im moving there. Got a job at Broward Health and I start Jan 7. I lived in Sunrise for 3 months last year when i had a contract at Northwest, so im familiar with the area. But i remember it took me awhile to find a good place, so I thought id check with my favorite community before scrolling through craigslist and Roomster. Im really just wanting to rent a room for awhile to get a feel of the area before i find something permanent. If anyone has a spare room, or knows of someone who has one, please PM me. Im more than happy to discuss the details of what im looking for, and any questions about me. All responses appreciated!

2018.03.01 22:39 ignoremsmedia Why Did It Take Two Weeks To Reveal Parkland Students’ Astroturfing?

The response was professionalized. That’s not surprising, because this is what organization that gets results actually looks like. It’s not a bunch of magical kids in somebody’s living room. David Hines By David Hines
MARCH 1, 2018 “Can you believe these kids?” It’s been a recurring theme of the coverage of the Parkland school shooting: the remarkable effectiveness of the high school students who created a gun control organization in the wake of the massacre. In seemingly no time, the magical kids had organized events ranging from a national march to a mass school walkout, and they’d brought in a million dollars in donations from Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney.
The Miami Herald credited their success to the school’s stellar debate program. The Wall Street Journal said it was because they were born online, and organizing was instinctive.
On February 28, BuzzFeed came out with the actual story: Rep. Debbie Wassermann Schultz aiding in the lobbying in Tallahassee, a teacher’s union organizing the buses that got the kids there, Michael Bloomberg’s groups and the Women’s March working on the upcoming March For Our Lives, doing social media promotion and (potentially) march logistics, and training for student activists provided by federally funded Planned Parenthood.
The president of the American Federation of Teachers told BuzzFeed they’re also behind the national school walkout, which journalists had previously assured the public was the sole work of a teenager. (I’d thought teachers were supposed to get kids into school, but maybe that’s just me.)
In other words, the response was professionalized. That’s not surprising, because this is what organization that gets results actually looks like. It’s not a bunch of magical kids in somebody’s living room. Nor is it surprising that the professionalization happened right off the bat. Broward County’s teacher’s union is militant, and Rep. Ted Lieu stated on Twitter that his family knows Parkland student activist David Hogg’s family, so there were plenty of opportunities for grown-ups with resources and skills to connect the kids.
Ted Lieu ✔ @tedlieu THIS CONSPIRACY THEORY IS INSANE. Our kids know David Hogg. My wife and I know his mom, who taught at our kids' elementary school before they moved to Florida. Although David is very articulate, he is not a crisis actor.
He is a student who lost 17 of his classmates to bullets.
3:53 AM - Feb 22, 2018 41.5K 17K people are talking about this Twitter Ads info and privacy That’s before you get to whether any of them had been involved in the Women’s March. According to BuzzFeed, Wassermann Schultz was running on day two.
What’s striking about all this isn’t the organization. If you start reading books about organizing, it’s clear how it all works. But no journalist covering the story wrote about this stuff for two weeks. Instead, every story was about the Parkland kids being magically effective.
On Twitter, I lost track of the number of bluechecks rhapsodizing over how effective the kids’ organizational instincts were. But organizing isn’t instinctive. It’s skilled work; you have to learn how to do it, and it takes really a lot of people. You don’t just get a few magical kids who’re amazing and naturally good at it.
The real tip-off should have been the $500,000 donations from Winfrey and Clooney. Big celebrities don’t give huge money to strangers on a whim. Somebody who knows Winfrey and Clooney called them and asked. But the press’s response was to be ever more impressed with the kids.
For two weeks, journalists abjectly failed in their jobs, which is to tell the public what’s going on. And any of them who had any familiarity with organizing campaigns absolutely knew. Matt Pearce, of the Los Angeles Times, would have been ideally placed to write an excellent article: not only is he an organizer for the Times’s union, he moderated a panel on leftist activism for the LA Times Book Festival and has the appropriate connections in organizing. Instead, he wrote about a school walkout, not what was behind it. (In another article, Pearce defined Delta caving to a pressure campaign’s demands as “finding middle ground.”)
But it’s not just a mainstream media problem. None of the righty outlets writing about Parkland picked up on the clear evidence that professional organizers were backing the Parkland kids, either. Instead, they objected to the front-and-centering of minor kids as unseemly, which does no good: Lefties aren’t going to listen, and it doesn’t educate the Right to counter.
The closest anyone got was Elizabeth Harrington at the Washington Free Beacon, who noted that Clooney’s publicist was booking the kids’ media interviews pro bono, and said that a friend (not Clooney) had asked him to do it. The result of all this is that the average righty does not understand what’s going on in activism, because all they see is what the press covers. The stuff that’s visible. It’s like expecting people in the Stone Age to grok the Roman army by looking at it. Conspiracy theorists happily fill this ignorance vacuum.
On one hand, sure, the issue with people who believe in crisis actors and various other kinds of conspiracy theories is that they’re susceptible. If they didn’t believe in crisis actors, they’d believe in something else (and they probably do). But on the other hand, I think one reason there’s an opportunity for righty conspiracy types to get all hopped up on goofballs with respect to protests and such is the abject failure of the Righty establishment to explain to its people how protests actually work.
This results in occasional hilarity when the Right tries to organize its own protests. For example, then-Internet celebrity Baked Alaska tried to create pro-Trump flashmobs in Los Angeles during the election. His efforts consisted of posting times and locations online. And that’s it. You see this attitude often among Righties: “We have the Internet! We’ll post a notice and people will show up!” Well, no; they won’t.
It’s not that Baked Alaska needed a magical kid, because there are no magical kids. There’s just hard work, and our press and politicos do everyone a disservice when they pretend otherwise. Here’s an example of how to turn out people, cribbed from “Organizing for Social Change,” the activist manual published by the Midwest Academy, which has been around since 1973 and has trained over 30,000 activists, some of whom went on to found their own training schools.
Say you run an organization that wants to impress a city councilman, and you’ve landed a meeting. You want your group to look bigger than it is. You’ve got 15 dedicated people you know will go, but you want to show the councilman 60 people.
The first thing you do is get 10 people from other groups (you do know other ideologically aligned groups in the area, right?). That leaves 35 people. To get them, you don’t post an ad on Craigslist. You look in your database of people who’ve signed your petitions or whatever. Call and ask them to come.
If they say yes, call them again a day or two in advance to confirm. Of the people who say yes twice, only half will actually show up. So you need 70 people to say yes twice. Expect to make seven times that number of phone calls to get them. That’s 490 five-minute phone calls, which breaks down to five people a night making phone calls for five straight nights.
It’s not magical kids, and it’s not George Soros sprinkling money around. It’s hard work by people who’ve trained to do it. That’s a little more work than posting an announcement on Facebook. And that’s organizing. It’s not magical kids, and it’s not George Soros sprinkling money around. It’s hard work by people who’ve trained to do it.
Now that the organizations are more open about their involvement, at some point the Parkland kids will go into the background a bit in media exposure, the same way Deray and Linda Sarsour did. That’s part of how organizing fame works these days: Two Minutes’ Heroes, in frequent rotation. But the problem remains: until the press covers organizing campaigns accurately, organizers will be able to punch above their weight politically even if they don’t win every election.
In his excellent book “Hegemony How-To,” leftist organizer Jonathan Smucker wrote, “Power tends to appear magical to those who have less of it, and mechanical to those who are accustomed to wielding it instrumentally.” Or, for that matter, to even seeing it instrumentally.
For two weeks, journalists treated power as if it were magical. It’s not. It’s mechanical. The people organizing the response to Parkland, and a host of other causes, know that. So should you.

2017.08.14 18:31 Aplos9 Free Buff Orpington

I know it's a long shot, but I'm starting here. I live in South Florida, Broward County. I am moving to a new living situation and I can no longer properly care for my Buff Orpington. She had a companion that recently passed, and I know on top of my new living situation, she needs companionship. She's been free range her whole life. She is older and her best laying years are behind her, but I really want to find a good home for her. I'm willing to drive pretty far for the right situation. I'm also going to North Carolina soon by car so if someone is near the highway that might work too. I'm going to try here for a day or so, then craigslist and the forums. I know many people aren't excited about older hens, but I'm hopeful a good situation will present itself and I know this community understands more than most. Thank you.
EDIT: I was able to find a great home with someone fairly close to me. Great community everyone. Especially with everything going on in America right now, it was nice to see our better half.

2017.06.04 21:04 JaguarGator9 [OC] Lost Leagues- Part IV: History of the Stars Football League

When you think of stars, what do you think of? Some people think of Stars on 45, who made a Beatles medley yet included “Sugar, Sugar” by The Archies (not a Beatles song). Some people think of a City of Stars, even though that wasn’t the best song in the movie (“Start a Fire” for the win in that category). And some think in the sense of the universe or the galaxy and think of outer space.
When I asked that prompt to think of stars, how many of you thought of the Stars Football League? Because this was a league that actually existed… and judging by the name of this post, it went about as well as you’d expect.
On Lost Leagues, so far, we’ve looked at the United Football League, the Spring Football League, and the Fall Experimental Football League. All three of them turned out to be failures. And even though the Stars Football League turned out to be a failure, it might have the funniest ending of any league I’ll come across. The league was horribly run, everyone involved was out of their mind and delusional… but the ending to this league is absolutely hysterical.
So, with that being said, let’s look at another attempt at spring football that backfired. This is the story of the Stars Football League.
Part I: Developing the League
Oddly enough, for a league that was created in 2010, I can’t find any articles about the creation of this league. You’ll be able to tell very quickly that this league didn’t exactly have a whole lot of coverage or promotion; I mentioned in a completely unrelated thread that it really puts into perspective how incredible the XFL was. For practically every league I’ve done, you had to put in the effort to find out it existed. For the XFL? You couldn’t escape it. Say what you want about the league, but the promotion for that was off the charts.
As for the SFL, there really isn’t anything confirming the creation of the league. Not even the league’s website (which is still up) has any articles on it; this is the first article ever from their website. We know it was, at the very least, founded in October of 2010, because that was when one of the franchises got their logo approved.
The SFL was going to be the solution for spring football. It would have six or eight teams all over the country, ranging from Las Vegas to Michigan to Fort Lauderdale. It promised a team that would play at the Pontiac Silverdome. It promised new rules (which we’ll get to later). Instead (and stop me if you heard this one before), the league only started with four teams. This seems to be a common theme amongst spring leagues- they want to start with more teams but are only able to get four off of the ground straight away.
The man responsible for this league was Peter Huthwaite, the co-owner of Giant Janitorial Service Incorporated. Unlike some other commissioners, he had experience in professional football; I was able to find this 1978 article from the Washington Post which mentioned his name as an agent. He’s definitely been around the block representing players, so unlike other leagues, this man actually has some qualifications to try something like this.
The rules of the league were a bit different. They had the three point conversion, where a team could take the 2-point conversion from 10 yards out for 3 points. Any field goal taken from 50 yards or more that was successful counted as 4 points (which seems to reward bad offense; I’ve seen this rule a few times before and I’m not a huge fan of it). Aside from that and the play clock being 30 seconds, everything else was the same.
This league had high ambitions. The 2011 season would just be the beginning. In fact, the SFL was so confident that they already announced expansion to Los Angeles in 2012. Not only did they announce a Las Vegas team, but they even went through with the logo. There were 6 teams in the South (Little Rock, New Orleans, Mobile, Charleston, Daytona Beach, and Fort Lauderdale), with the league being headquartered in Michigan (makes perfect sense), and a team being in Michigan and Las Vegas.
But the writing was on the wall from the very beginning, because just one month before the start of the season, the league was still in the planning phase. In a May article, the league would start “on or around June 18”. “On or around” isn’t exactly the most comforting phrase. Imagine if the NFL announced that they would play games every day of the week instead of Sundays, and in August, announced that week 1 would take place “on or around” September 6. Kind of screws up travel plans and all that.
The other problem with the league? It was incredibly delusional. This is a 2010 article about the creation of the league. This part in particular stood out to me:
The league’s financial model is “based on averaging 10,000 fans over 30 games buying $20 tickets, which would raise $6 million.”
First off, if this is a minor league with no television contract (they didn’t have instant replay because they had no TV deal), very little promotion (I bet none of you have ever even heard of this league before this post), and poor quality of football (if players are receiving $100 per game but are having to pay their own travel expenses, then you’re not gonna get good players), how are you averaging 10,000 fans per game? The UFL couldn’t even do that in its first season, and even though there was poor planning involved, they had a television contract and promotion. Playing 30 games is a bit ambitious for a league like this, but I can see it; if there are 8 teams in the league, everyone plays each other once, and then 4 teams make the playoffs, that leaves you with 31 games.
But who is buying $20 tickets for minor league football? If my two options over the spring/summer are to go to a minor league baseball game in a nice stadium for $10, or go to a minor league football game in a high school stadium for $20, I’m choosing the baseball game every day of the week. About 20 minutes from my house, a minor league baseball team plays where it’s $8 for a regular ticket and $12 for a club ticket behind home plate. A $20 ticket in the SFL could get you 5-yard line seats on uncomfortable bleachers.
Already, the league was in massive trouble with a flawed business plan and only 4 teams in the league when they were expecting 6-8. So how did their first season go?
Part II: The 2011 Season
After promising 6-8 teams and unveiling logos for teams in Las Vegas and Charleston, neither Las Vegas nor Charleston was in the league. In fact, a month before, the league didn’t even know whether they were gonna have a team in Las Vegas or Los Angeles. They eventually settled on neither. While they announced a program allowing them to scout 5,500 players, they still didn’t know who would be in the league, other than the Daytona Beach Racers and the Fort Lauderdale Barracudas.
In the end, they would wind up with 4 teams. The Racers and Barracudas would be in the league, while the Michigan Coyotes would become a traveling team (again, probably not the best idea to have your league headquartered in Michigan while everything else is being held in the South), and the New Orleans Jazz (the football team, not the former NBA team that moved to Utah) would join the league midway through the season. Why you would name a team as the New Orleans Jazz, I’m not entirely sure, but then again, I’m not sure that this league had any idea what it was doing.
Oddly enough, I couldn’t find anything about the inaugural game on the league’s website. The league’s website is comically bad, and I’ll be referencing this a few times, because it’s in the “so bad it’s hysterical” category. You can buy a New Orleans Jazz jersey for $165, which is about twice what an NFL jersey goes for, and you can buy a Daytona Beach Racers polo, even though the description says something about Pebble Beach. Even when I filtered the search to the week of the game, I found absolutely nothing about the inaugural game. All I could find was that the Racers beat the Barracudas 26-13, but in terms of game details, nothing.
The first game was on June 30. The next game wouldn’t take place until July 16, once again between the Racers and Barracudas. This time, Fort Lauderdale won 22-4. Michigan still had not played a game, and New Orleans was still in limbo, as they didn’t even have a GM yet. Finally, on July 22, the New Orleans Jazz would play their first game against the Fort Lauderdale Barracudas, and the Jazz won 15-9. How good was the game? It would live for all of eternity.
I’m not kidding. The postgame article on the league’s website says this. Just read this. It’s absolutely hysterical. Whoever the PR man for this league is either doesn’t know how to do their job, or is the greatest hype man ever, and I’m not sure which one it is. Any article that starts with “No where in the history of football did anyone ever witness a game that would live for all of eternity” is worth a read.
However, the story on this game gets even weirder. Here’s a legitimately fantastic article written on the first game by a journalist named Nick Peruffo. Some of the notes I took away from the article: the SFL season was supposed to end on September 11? That’s a terrible idea. It’s a bad idea to end your football season on the day where week 1 of the NFL season would be happening. Good luck getting the crowds you wanted to get by going up directly against the NFL.
The fact that the GM for the New Orleans Jazz was a position on Craigslist and uses incredibly vague terms is pretty funny. If you haven’t noticed, the league doesn’t really go into detail on things, and uses really broad terms. Imagine if Vincent from Bojack Horseman (the 3 kids stacked on top of each other in a trench coat) gave the quotes for the league (no spoilers- I just started and binge watched season one in a day). When the Jazz hired their coach, the only quote was about having experience in football coaching. Not just coaching, but football coaching. It never lists what he’s actually done.
A game between the Jazz and Coyotes was supposed to be played the week before, but never was. It got cancelled. Tickets, as mentioned before, were $20. That’s a lot for a game where apparently, there were no rosters. The attendance was maybe 200 people, and even that might be a bit generous; here’s highlight footage of the game. As you can tell from the 2 plays, the quality of football is really, really bad. Why you would lateral the ball up 9-0 is beyond me. As you can also tell, nobody was at the game. I couldn’t find one fan in the stands.
The funniest part? The PA announcer was literally commentating the plays. The PA announcer’s name? Albert Einstein Peter Huthwaite, as in, the commissioner of the league. The commissioner was the PA announcer. Imagine if Roger Goodell was the PA announcer the next time you went to a football game. In an interview with the commissioner, he envisioned a league with 30 teams (he could barely get 4 teams off the ground), and adjusted the business plan model to get anywhere from 15,000-20,000 fans per game. Good luck with that.
The other thing I should mention is that Jaguars GM Gene Smith was a terrible general manager. I bring this up because, to my knowledge, he is the only GM that actually looked at this football league.
After a few more games, the league abruptly called the first season short. After an apparently “exciting 21-6 game” according to their PR guy, in a game that drew over 1,900 fans (which seems really high to believe, since in this highlight video of a different game, there was nobody in attendance), the league wasted no time planning out season 2, saying they would start on Saturday, 2011 (taken straight from the website; what Saturday, 2011 means to you is up for interpretation). The goals were to get a TV contract, add 10 teams (again, they could barely get 4 off the ground this year), and possibly look at Europe and China for talent.
Remember that their business model was “based on averaging 10,000 fans over 30 games buying $20 tickets, which would raise $6 million.” I doubt they even averaged 1,000 fans per game over 6 games. This league was on thin ice. Would season two fare any differently?
Part III: The 2012 Season
How do you grow a league that’s struggling and needs money? That’s easy- play a game in the Bahamas. I kid you not, that’s what the league wanted to do. They even announced it. Obviously, this never happened. And remember those plans for expansion? As you can probably guess, they didn’t expand. In fact, they lost two teams. The Michigan Coyotes folded, and the New Orleans Jazz looked to play elsewhere (they didn’t fold, but I don’t think they existed afterwards). While they did add a team, there was no announcement on the team; the Fort Myers Swampdogs announced a coaching staff out of the blue.
The plan for 2012, as described by an out-of-breath commissioner, was to play from March to July. They started the 2012 season in June with just 3 teams, all based in Florida. The Barracudas and Racers returned, but a 3-team league is tough to run. Even worse was that the Daytona Beach team was now a traveling team to an extent; they had just one home game, and it was played at Fort Pierce. In the end, the season consisted of just five games, and it was poorly run.
After the opening game between the Barracudas and the Racers, the league announced on June 12 that their next game would be on June 16. For some reason, even though every game was in Florida, the league thought it would still be a good idea to be headquartered in Michigan; the dateline on the articles was from Grosse Pointe, Michigan. The way the article is written is just hysterical; the fact that the commissioner announcer the results of the game makes it seem like a boxing match, and the fact that the Swamp Dogs “won the game 14 to 0 with two amazing touchdowns late in the fourth quarter!” is just funny to me. The first game in Fort Myers had a large and enthusiastic crowd without revealing any numbers, the next game was won by the Racers by a final score of SIX to ZERO, and the final game of the regular season was won by the Swamp Dogs.
After 5 games, we had reached the championship. They had finished a season. It would be Daytona Beach at Fort Lauderdale for the title game. Daytona Beach ended up as the champions, and the crowd was enthusiastic, but at the end of the day, that’s pretty insignificant. Let’s just jump to the offseason, where the league was still trying to find its footing.
Part IV: The 2013 Season
Yes, the league would play a third season. They wanted teams in Akron, Charleston, Cleveland, and Canton. They even wanted teams in a bunch of other cities. Oddly enough, the New Orleans Jazz were still looking for a coach, even though they’re no longer in the league. Big surprise- the Jazz wouldn’t be in the league in 2013. They announced their opening game would take place on April 6, even though when all was said and done, the league wouldn’t kick off until June.
They tried getting TV rights. It fell through. They tried getting more TV rights. It fell through. They tried permamently putting a team in the Bahamas. It fell through. They tried starting the season in April. It fell through, and only started in June instead. The 2013 season would have just 4 teams, as they added the Miami Ironmen. The Fort Myers Swampdogs were now the Pompano Swampdogs, even though they played no games in Pompano. Every team made the playoffs. I don’t even know what this article even means. The league was a mess at this point, so much so that a franchise that didn’t even exist was up for sale. They even moved the schedule to bring in expansion teams in Charlotte, Jacksonville, and Texas, even though that never happened.
Remember the Charleston Admirals, the team that had their logo announced before the start of the 2011 season but never played? They moved to Palm Beach and never played a down. They planned to add another Florida team but that never happened. There would be 100 teams in this league if the commissioner actually did something besides just talking.
In the end, every single game would take place at Central Broward Regional Park. Every game would take place at the same stadium. Didn’t really matter where the teams were stationed if every game would be at the same spot in a doubleheader format. They did get some sort of broadcasting deal with ESPN West Palm, so there actually was some progress. The league also introduced a new rule, called the 4-point conversion. If you converted from the 20-yard line, you got 4 points.
But tell me if this makes any sense. Taken directly from the website:
In the case of a tie teams will play a 5 minute sudden death overtime, if the score remains tied after the 5 minutes, each team will be awarded 5 points.
Aside from the run-on sentence and lack of punctuation, what purpose does this serve? First off, five minutes for overtime seems really short. Don’t give the NFL any ideas. Secondly, what purpose does awarding each team five points serve if the teams are already tied? If you give each team 5 points, guess what? THEY’RE STILL TIED. IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE.
Anyway, the league played in 2013, with every game played at the same venue. Here are some highlights. And here is some video of the championship. As you can tell from the opening kickoff, the quality of play is really, really bad. You can also notice a lack of attendance. In the end, the expansion Miami Ironmen finished undefeated and beat the Swampdogs 21-6 to win the third season of the SFL and the second ever Presidents Cup (they didn’t play a first season championship game).
Part V: The Final Hurrah & Conclusion
After 2013, the league was still planning on surviving in 2014. How, I’m not sure, but they held a meeting and determined some expansion sites. They’re very good at determining expansion sites, but not so much at expanding. It’s like the reservation scene in Seinfeld. A league that could only find footing in Florida was now going to have 12 teams and even play in Mexico. They even had franchises set up in California and New Mexico for 2015.
But the league never made it. The 2014 season never happened. Neither did the 2015 season. They never played, but oddly enough, they never folded. The reason? This is the greatest ending in the history of any football league ever. Taken straight from the website from August in 2016, typos and all:
The SFL Board of Directors announced today that investors can not only make a wise investment and purchase their own Team, in addition, they cannow purchase the entire Stars Football League! Call now at (313)657-4711 to make your purchase today!
So if anyone here has some money and wants to purchase the entire Stars Football League, you can do that. Want to purchase a league that has team information for teams that never even played a single down in the league? You can do that. Want a ground floor investment opportunity that sounds straight out of a pyramid scheme? You can do that. Want a league where you can buy your 2012 tickets today? You can do that.
If you want to buy a football league, this is your opportunity. The SFL is not dead yet. It’s just waiting for an investor like you to buy it.
In terms of the legacy of the league, the SFL had extremely unrealistic expectations from the start. Expecting fans to spend $20 on tickets and get 20,000 fans per game with no promotion whatsoever is stupid. Announcing and then dropping expansion teams left and right and seemingly every other week is a bad idea. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out where this league went wrong.
But if you want to be the one that fixes that, then go for it and buy the league.

2016.12.24 13:48 MattAmpersand Any Miami/Broward players here? Need some help!

Travelling from overseas and visiting some family in Miami (Miami Lakes, to be specific).
I didn't travel with my decks so I was looking to do some drafts. Any recommendations where to go? Because I'm so far up north, going to shops in Kendall is probably out of the question, so North Miami and south Broward is probably easier.
Also, I'm looking to get bulk cards in English. Again, any shops recommendations for that? Or does anyone from the area have something they want to offload? I'm going to check stuff like Craigslist, but thought I'd check with the local community first.

2014.06.13 00:40 acusticthoughts [For Hire] Widely skilled, experienced corporate/start up looking for 20-25 hours a week while I start my solar power company - South Florida, FL (IT/Sales/Project Management/etc).

Craigslist post here: Link
LinkedIN here: Link
Short version: I am looking for part time work through the end of the year. Very open to doing what you need done. $20/hr. Can do light excel programming (financial modeling or building tools to ease certain business transactions), IT (computer repair, networking, SEO, social media work, etc), sales (I can make phone calls all day long), or coordinate projects between multiple department heads. Either way - I am a talented individual just trying to figure out how to get a solar power company off of the ground.
Not looking for a commissioned position, don't need a contract, can be paid as a contractor ($24/hr more if that is the case), located in Hollywood, FL near I-95. Am actually open to moving because my lease is ending soon (if need be - I happen to really enjoy where I live though). Am open to anywhere in the tri-county area (Miami/Broward/Palm Beach) as I am at home across all three countries (lived in the area since I was 4).
