You may have noticed a box in the Community Room for food collection. Everyone should be putting something into that; "something" being:
Canned goods (veggies, fruit, meat)
You have until next Wednesday to drop an item or multiple items in there. All donations go to the Atlanta Community Food Bank, and you walk away with a healthier conscience knowing you're helping those in need.
And here are three other important things you should know: 1. Taco Tuesdays are safe (for now). But you probably didn't know they were in danger. NBA superstar LeBron James tried to trademark the phrase since he likes to record himself screaming it every Tuesday. His request was denied. "James began sharing videos of his family's taco nights on his Instagram account during the offseason. The videos became something of a social media sensation, with James making special 'It's Taco Tuesday' T-shirts and new Lakers forward Anthony Davis even making a special guest appearance. James had sought to monetize the videos by filing to trademark "Taco Tuesday" in August." ESPN 2. Vaping is on the hot seat. First the news cycle is loaded with vape-related illnesses and death, resulting in the U.S. beginning talks to regulate the industry. Now India has come out and banned e-cigs outright. "Yesterday, India’s government announced an immediate, full-stop prohibition of e-cigarettes, citing public health concerns for today’s youth. Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said in a statement that the ban covers all aspects of the market: production, manufacturing, import, export, transport, sale, distribution, storage, and advertising." The Hustle 3. There's a new site for ending debates. If you've ever been deadlocked with a friend or significant other in an argument, the internet has come to rescue you. "Let's Settle This plays host, judge, and jury to your argument on the online stage. The free site allows you to write a post describing your situation, where you can detail exactly what's going on. Below, site users can vote for who they think is right. The site then calculates a percentage based on peoples' votes, and boom! Argument solved. Right? After voting, you're presented with a new argument, which seems like it can easily lead to hours of playing jury." Mashable New From Marketing Tomorrow is Bar Cart!
