CBS News reports that federal officials have notified authorities in New York, Texas, and Virginia about a possible, “low-level” terror threat for Election Day, Tuesday, November 8. These reports go on to say that polling stations may be targets for “lone-wolf” assailants.

It’s important to note that this threat came from unconfirmed, anonymous sources that officials are still investigating.

"Texans should go about their daily lives as usual,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott. “But remain vigilant over the next several days and report any suspicious activity.”

“We are doing everything we can to keep Virginians safe,” said Brian Coy, Communications Director to Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe. “We're confident they are going to be able to vote safely on Election Day.”

The FBI has yet to confirm or comment on the details of the report.

Artist Candy Change created 1,000 of "Before I die" boards in 70 countries around the world.

Her latest one, in the Parisian train station Gare du Nord, was not appreciated by travellers. Understandably, the country has been suffering from terror attacks for the last 18 months that have claimed the lives of 235 victims.

The powers behind it denied there was any bad taste behind it. Yeah, right...

Mason Wells is an American teenager who has been traveling as a Mormon missionary. He's either very lucky, or very unlucky. To date, he has survived three terrorist attacks after suffering injuries in the latest attack on Brussels. 

He was apparently a block away from the finish line during the Boston Marathon bombing and hours away from Paris during the terrorist attacks in November. 

Thankfully, he is expected to make a full recovery. You can watch an interview with his family here:

Halloween's just around the corner!

And surely you've thought, "Hey, I'd love to dress up as a large lumpy potato with a horrifying black-eyed stare and a shock of colorful hair just to make the whole thing zing its way into the night terrors of children everywhere."

Well, you are so in luck! Some costume that slightly resembles one of those troll dolls from the 1990s, but more accurately looks like the untold insanity of pure evil, is now available from Joker's Masquerade.

Here's how they describe the thing:

This cute pink Troll Doll costume is both a charming and unusual fancy dress idea.

Includes a brown bodysuit with attached shoe covers, gloves and a rounded padded tummy.

A matching brown headpiece with stuffed nose, ears and a large grinning mouth is also included.

The headpiece is topped with a tuft of bright pink hair which can be styled to your liking.

Please don't dress like this for Halloween. You will surely get chased down the street by maddened villagers looking to destroy the thing they fear most.

"Kill it!" they'll scream. "Kill it with fire!"
