Luckily for you, there is a new website that will make it all better.

What’s New With This Story:
–AArrow Sign Spinners is the world leader in “human directional” advertising. They are making a big push in the South Florida market and just opened a new office in Hollywood.
-The company was founded by Max Durovic when he was in college. Durovic started the company with just $500. It now employs 2,500 sign spinners in 35 different global markets.
-The South Florida market is run by two Jamaicans named Kadeem. They are also considered some of the top spinners in the world.
Max Durovic is spinning mad.
And that’s a good thing.
Durovic, the founder of AArrow Sign Spinners sits at the top of an unusual advertising empire.
He doesn’t harvest people’s attention via television or on the radio, he does it using the human form on the side of the road.
Durovic reinvented the sign spinning form and turned it into a sport.
15 years after he founded the company, Durovic now has 2,500 sign spinners working for him across the world in 35 global markets.
He is also doubling down on South Florida, a market that he feels could soon rival his top earning areas.
The company recently opened a new office in Hollywood.
That office is managed by Kadeem Johnson and Kadeem Grant.
Both Johnson and Grant are Jamaicans who met Durovic while he was attending graduate school in Washington, D.C.
Both are also considered to be soon of the top spinners in the world.
Johnson is even a three time world sign spinning champion.
They have a world championship in Las Vegas every year.
This company fits right at home in South Florida.

Tomi Lahren, the controversial millennial shock jock who is always all over your Facebook feed seems to have a whole bunch of folks who don’t like her.
Over 53 thousand people have signed a Change.org petition calling for Lahren to be removed from Glenn Beck’s Blaze television network because of her habit of being wrong and intellectually lazy.
“Everyone has a voice and an opinion,” the petition reads. “However, when the wrong voice is given a platform and is allowed to influence an audience of millions by perpetuating derogatory ideology toward select groups of individuals, this is where the injustice lies. Tomi Lahren (although her words are laden with passion and emotion) lacks the knowledge and experience to effectively communicate and facilitate.”
The petition campaign was created by a man named Cameron Tendaji and it has gained traction on social media.
“As a millennial in these “progressive” times, Tomi Lahren should be allowing safe spaces for all audiences,” The petition reads. “Instead, she attacks minority groups, fabricates historical “facts”, and is grossly misinformed on political topics.”
Lahren is pretty flawed as a media figure.
She has little experience and has been a darling of the right-wing since her schtick of attacking progressives started a couple of years ago.
She is a bomb thrower of the Rush Limbaugh variety and has almost no journalistic credibility.
Some of her commentary is borderline racist and almost always unfair.
However, should she really be silenced just because we disagree with her?
Is it really the job of media to create “safe spaces”?
Isn’t the role of media to stir the pot and chafe for change while identifying uncomfortable facts?
Just a thought.
Anyway, if the folks supporting this petition get their way then Lahren will soon be silenced.
“Tom [sic] Lahren’s hate speech against minority groups will no longer be tolerated,” the petition reads. “She will learn that although we have freedom of speech, there is no freedom from consequences. This may not solve the main issue; however, great things have small beginnings.”
But instead of removing Lahren, shouldn’t we just create a better alternative to her?
