Washington Post: Former Republican designed fake presidential seal that appeared behind Trump

A former Republican voter from Virginia is the man who made a parody image of the presidential seal that was shown behind President Donald Trump at a conservative teen summit, according to The Washington Post. Graphic designer Charles Leazott, 46, created the fake presidential seal that features a two-headed eagle — lifted from the Russian Federation coat of arms — clutching a set of golf clubs in its talons, according to the Post. "This is the most petty piece of art I have ever created," Leazott told the Post. — CNN

A blind man couldn’t order pizza from Domino’s. The company wants the Supreme Court to say websites don’t have to be accessible

Guillermo Robles, who is blind, has tried to order a custom pizza from Domino’s at least twice in recent years, using the company’s website and mobile app. He says despite using screen reading software, he wasn’t able to order the food, because the website is not accessible to blind people. So three years ago, Robles filed a lawsuit against the company. He alleged that the Americans with Disabilities Act, the 1990 law that requires businesses to make accommodations for those with disabilities, applied to the websites and apps of businesses with physical locations. A federal appeals court agreed. Now, the Supreme Court may weigh in. — CNBC

Well this is spooky: More than 70,000 people have signed a petition to change the date of Halloween

Attention, all Halloween lovers: There is a petition circling that may be of interest. It's aiming to change the date of the spooky holiday. The petition, started last year by the Halloween & Costume Association, had 71,573 signatures as of Friday morning — less than 4,000 signatures away from its goal of 75,000. At that point, the petition will be sent to the White House, according to USA Today. The reason for moving Halloween from Oct. 31? Per the petition, they want to push the date to the last Saturday of the month, rather than having the holiday fall in the middle of the week. "It's time for a Safer, Longer, Stress-Free Celebration!" the petition notes. — Business Insider
