Cigarette maker Reynolds to snuff out workplace smoking - SFGate - http://www.sfgate.com/busines...
"Camel cigarette maker Reynolds American Inc. is snuffing out smoking in its offices and buildings. The nation’s second-biggest tobacco company informed employees Wednesday that beginning next year, the use of traditional cigarettes, cigars or pipes will no longer be permitted at desks or in offices, conference rooms, hallways and elevators. Lighting up already is prohibited on factory floors and in cafeterias and fitness centers. The no-smoking policy will go into effect once Reynolds builds indoor smoking areas for those still wanting to light up indoors, spokesman David Howard said. “We believe it’s the right thing to do and the right time to do it because updating our tobacco use policies will better accommodate both nonsmokers and smokers who work in and visit our facilities,” Howard said. “We’re just better aligning our tobacco use policies with the realities of what you’re seeing in society today.” While Reynolds will no longer allow smoking, it will allow the use of smokeless... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
"The company also will allow the use of Eclipse, a cigarette made by Reynolds that uses a carbon tip that heats tobacco after being lit by a lighter. First released in the mid-1990s, Eclipse is in limited distribution and one of the top-selling brands in the cafeteria at the company’s Winston-Salem, N.C., headquarters. The percentage of Reynolds’ 5,200 employees that smoke is in line... more... - Anne Bouey

50 Books Every Parent Should Read to Their Child – Flavorwire
50 Books Every Parent Should Read to Their Child – Flavorwire
"According to a new study, the hallowed practice of bedtime reading is falling by the wayside — and that some quarter of a million children in the UK do not own a single book. This is a terrible shame, as regular bedtime stories have been shown to increase children’s performance in school, and are also awesome and can help create strong lifetime bonds, both with literature and with parents. So, from the peanut gallery of those who loved being read to (and still wouldn’t say no to a bedtime story): 50 books that every parent should read to their child. For the purposes of this list, we’re only considering books aimed primarily at children under 10 (according to the School Library Journal), which means you won’t find outstanding children’s chapter books like The Hobbit, A Wrinkle in Time, Patricia C. Wrede’s Enchanted Forest Chronicles, or C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia here, nor will you find mention of your favorite bespectacled wizard — the idea being that these are books kids are... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet

I'd add "Library Lion" by Michelle Knudsen. (Here's a version being read: http://www.storylineonline.net/library...) - Stephen Mack

To keep customers coming back, some Chinese restaurants are lacing noodles with opiates - Quartz - http://qz.com/271411...
To keep customers coming back, some Chinese restaurants are lacing noodles with opiates - Quartz
"Forget Colorado, stoners. The real frontier of narcotic edibles is in Shaanxi province, China. A restaurant owner there just confessed to police that to keep customers coming back, he had infused his noodles with 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds) of pulverized poppy buds—which can contain narcotics like morphine and codeine—that he bought in August for 600 yuan ($98). Apparently, it worked; the restaurant boss said customer numbers leapt (link in Chinese) after he started using his “special” seasoning. Chinese authorities say doses were enough to addict frequent diners, reports the South China Morning Post (paywall). Police launched an investigation only after one of the restaurant’s repeat customers tested positive for opiates in a routine urine screen. But Zhang, the shop owner, wasn’t the first Chinese restaurateur to strike upon this idea—not by a long shot. An investigative report in 2011 found that illegal poppy products are available in Shaanxi markets—with restaurant owners being the... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
"Restaurant owners all over China have long embraced this customer retention trick. Last year, two restaurants in the southern metropolis of Guangzhou were caught adding pulverized poppies to their food. The prior year, seven restaurants in Ningxia were found to be dousing their hotpot soups with morphine. A Sichuan restaurant has repeatedly been found to feature codeine as a “secret... more... - Anne Bouey
Ah, entrepreneurship... - Morgan Fugel
"The 26-year-old diner whose urine test exposed the noodle shop’s secret is still in prison for drug use—even though further police testing suggested he tested positive as a result of the poppy-laced noodles. “Whether it’s through self-inflicted drug use or unwitting food consumption, it’s still drug use,” says local police chief Ma Yubin told the Xi’an Evening News. “The law doesn’t draw a sharp distinction between the two.”" Oh, China. - Jessie
I'm both excited and appalled by this... - Hookuh Tinypants
Sounds like the police chief needs his noodles spiked. - Todd Hoff

Tiny Napa cat stands tall in new Guinness record book
"How can something small stand tall? By being the shortest of its kind on the planet – like Lilieput, a Napa house cat who now has a place in the Guinness World Records book. Standing but 5.25 inches (13.34 centimeters) from the floor to her shoulders, the 10-year-old black-and-mocha Munchkin, who is owned by Christel Young, is listed as the world’s shortest domestic feline in the Guinness book’s latest edition, published Sept. 9. Young first contacted editorial staff for the annual reference book of superlatives last year, believing Lilieput to be closer to the ground than Fizz Girl, whom the publication had measured at just under 6 inches (15 cm) in 2011. After a Napa veterinarian measured Lilieput in July 2013, Young shared her pet’s story with the Napa Valley Register, though Guinness publishers did not allow her to officially confirm the record until the book’s publication last month. Lilieput’s place in a bestselling book alongside the tallest buildings, fastest eaters and all... more... - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet

Norway ranked best country for elders; U.S. makes No. 8 - SFGate - http://www.sfgate.com/default...
"No country takes better care of its seniors than Norway, where those over 60 enjoy social security bankrolled by the nation’s oil wealth and are well represented in politics and the workplace, a global study on aging reported this week. By contrast, the 2014 Global AgeWatch Index found, the worst place in the world to grow old is Afghanistan, where per capita GDP is a mere $1,100 and life expectancy only 50 years. Better north of equator The annual rankings based on income security, health care access, social benefits and community involvement reflected the generally greater affluence of Northern Hemisphere countries over those below the equator, with nine of the 10 best places for the elderly found in Northern Europe, North America and Japan. The geographic outlier was New Zealand, which ranked No. 10.

"Japan is experiencing the most dramatic rise in the number of elderly, with nearly 33 percent of the population over 60 now and an expected expansion by 2050 to a staggering 42.7 percent.

Getting animals to dazzle on screen is a wild job - Lowell Sun Online
"For animal trainers on film sets, the job can be wild. Getting snakes on a plane takes a bit of heat or light, but cajoling a bear to perform for the camera can require buckets of fried chicken. Casey the bear, seen in "Evan Almighty" and other movies, had that diva-like demand written into his contract. KFC was his favorite, and it had to be fresh. Sometimes, on remote locations, it would take a 90-minute drive to get to the nearest fast food outpost, his trainer said. The story is among those in the book "Animal Stars," a behind-the-scenes look at how trainers get species from badgers to bears to safely do what dazzles. Set for release Sept. 25, the book is co-written by the head of the American Humane Association, whose entertainment unit is the industry's only sanctioned animal welfare program. The book celebrates the unit's 75th anniversary this year. The group will come on set for a fee to ensure animal safety. If all goes well, it allows the familiar tagline "No animals were harmed in the making of this film" to roll in movie credits." - Anne Bouey from Bookmarklet
"The book features quotes from actors and directors like Quentin Tarantino, who says animals need an advocate. "They need somebody saying, 'No, it's too much.' 'They're too tired.' 'It's too scary for them.' 'Something could happen,'" the "Django Unchained" director said in the book. "You can do amazing, eye-popping things.

There are few people who see an upside to the record-setting drought in California, but Drew McClellan sees a path to business. Earlier this summer, when a friend began complaining about his browning front lawn, Mr. McClellan thought back to his childhood in Florida, where he often spotted golf courses using sprays to dye their greens. When a brief Internet search failed to show any local business offering a similar service, Mr. McClellan decided it was a prime opportunity.
