Good Morning.. Wow, I gotta ask.. Is mother nature bipolar? What a wild wacky weather weekend. First beautiful 80 degree weather, then snow. I wan’t off this roller coaster! Preferably in the warm end of things. Anywho, hope you had a good weekend, here’s what you missed on the show today.
The Morning Brain Buster:
Q. 1 out of 3 Americans like doing this. Some even love it. What?
A. A: Their Taxes
Bonehead Of The Day:
A 33-year-old British man is lucky to be alive after his car went off a cliff and fell 80 feet into the sea. When emergency services got to the scene, they were able to get the car out of the water, along with the driver, who told a fireman "he just had a Red Bull and it...made him fly."
Colorado Gets First Pot Vending Machine
“Hey, I’m heading to the snack bar. Want me to grab you anything from the vending machine? Mountain Dew…Snickers…Weed?” Yep. Now you can grab your favorite grass from a little convenient box called the ZaZZZ.
Montana’s Smokehouse in Avon, Colorado unveiled the state’s first pot vending machine this weekend – a contraption the maker describes as “an automated, age-verifying, climate-controlled marijuana dispensing machine.”
“We imagine it filling the needs based on the dispensary and their client needs/wants ultimately,” says Stephen Shearin, COO of American Green parent Tranzbyte. “But for now, I see someone who knows what they want approaching the machine, purchasing and departing — all within regulatory guidelines, but without the counter lines.”
Sure, these machines have been around for a while in Medical marijuana shops, but usually behind the counter and not accessible to customers.
Baltimore Robber Laughed Out Of Salon
The first cut was the deepest for 29-year-old Ryan Michael Trembly. Mr. Boy thought he had it made when attempting to rob a hair salon in Annapolis, Maryland, but the receptionist thought his gun was a little too “finger-like” to be deadly. And she was right.
The would-be robber entered Bubbles Hair Salon with a finger pointed under his shirt, acting as if he had a weapon. After demanding that the receptionist, Jacqueline, give him all of the money in the register, she says that she laughed, unable to believe his demands were serious, and told him, "Not today!" Adding, "Who tries to rob a salon? The bank's right there!"
NBC Philadelphia reports that Trembly "tried to make small talk with her before eventually leaving the building." As for “Jacqueline,” she called the police and told them that Trembly entered another business before being picked up by a white Nissan.
Trembly didn’t get far and was later found by police at his mother's house, and charged with one count of attempted robbery, one count of theft less than $1,000, and one count of being the least intimidating criminal in Annapolis. Okay – we made that last one up.
New Weight Loss Trend, High Fiber In, Low Calorie Out
We’ve all grabbed one of those low calorie weight loss meals just to find that our bellies were grumbling an hour later. You know why? There’s nothing in there to keep you full and satisfied. Studies show that people are catching on and ditching low cal meals for high fiber!
Dieters are now opting for natural ingredients high protein and fiber even though they’re higher in calories. Because a few calories now are better than a million calories later when you grab for an entire cake because that “Weight Watcher’s” Panini left you starving.
As a result, brands like Diet Coke, Lean Cuisine and Special K that market low-calorie options are now suffering in the sales department.
Research firm IRI reported that Kellogg's Special K cereal's sales have dropped seven-percent in the last two years, Sales of Nestle's Lean Cuisine also dropped 27-percent the last four years, and the sales volume of Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi went down almost seven-percent in 2013.
No more chasing your lo-cal pizza with a bag of Cheetos and milk shakes. Now that we have a fiber filled belly we can think straight…and we no longer want your processed diet meals that are filled with nothing but chemicals and empty promises.
Jet Lag? There’s An App For That!
There could be relief in sight for those of you who suffer from jet lag – thanks to an app called Entrain. Here's how it works: You type in your current location and destination as well as what kind of light you will have access to, and the app gives you a schedule of light exposure that should reset your internal clock in the most efficient way.
Olivia Walch, a PhD student at the University of Michigan, designed the app, which can help you adjust three times faster. It’s based on an earlier mathematical model created by Daniel Forger. The biological mathematician has been studying circadian rhythm – which tells you when to sleep and when to wake up – since the 1990s.
A combined research team from the University of Michigan and Yale University think it's a smart new way to cut down on recovery time after a flight that crosses time zones. And if you report back to the researchers, they can improve it even more.
Dogs VS Babies?
Are more women choosing having dogs over having babies? Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that a big drop in the number of babies born to women ages 15 to 29 corresponds with a huge increase in the number of tiny pooches owned by young American women. And that's just fine with these gals, who are part of that 9-percent decline in live U.S. births in the past several years.
The trend involves a tendency toward smaller dogs, under 25 pounds. Their numbers as pets have risen from 34-point-one-million in 2008 to 40-point-eight-million in 2012.
DamianShore, amarket researcher, said, "Women are not only having fewer children but are also getting married later. There are more single and unmarried women in their late 20s and early 30s, which also happens to be the demographic that buys the most small dogs.” Shore definitely thinks that, along with the joys of dog ownership, there's some baby replacement taking place here.
