The President is in trouble because of Twitter again...this time, over a tweet about his wife.


President Trump is welcoming First Lady Melania Trump home from the hospital by misspelling her name on Twitter. In a tweet, he spelled Melania's name as "Melanie." The first lady returned to the White House Saturday after a kidney surgery.

“Great to have our incredible First Lady back home in the White House,” Trump wrote. “Melanie is feeling and doing really well. Thank you for all of your prayers and best wishes!”

The tweet was deleted a coupled of hours later and the following tweet without a typo of the first lady's name was released: "Great to have our incredible First Lady back home in the White House. Melania is feeling and doing really well. Thank you for all of your prayers and best wishes!"


Starbucks is set to increase stores in China by opening one every 15 hours.


Here in America, Starbucks is one of the leading coffee brands, but internationally, the coffee brew house is about to grow even bigger. That’s because the company is looking to expand its locations by double in China over the nest five years. This means that one store will open there every 15-hours. 

“Starbucks is committed to playing the long game in China and is proud to be an integral part of the local community for nearly 20 years,” says Belinda Wong, Starbucks China chief executive officer. “Our company has a strong, healthy, responsible business with purpose-driven values that celebrates our incredible 47 years of coffee expertise in sourcing, roasting, blending and handcrafting some of the world’s finest coffees.”

Sounds crazy to open a store every 15-hours, but that’s the measures it will take to get from the 3,300 stores that are open now to the 6,000 stores Starbucks wants open by 2022. They’re hoping to put the shops in more than 89 cities across the country. It’s also looking to triple revenue and double its operating income in China. To do so, they’re starting off with a flagship-style store in Beijing opening next month. It’s set to be the largest store in the entire world.

The odor is described by Hasbro as a "sweet, slightly musky, vanilla-like fragrance, with slight overtones of cherry, and the natural smell of a salted, wheat-based dough."

"The scent of Play-Doh compound has always been synonymous with childhood and fun," said Jonathan Berkowitz, senior vice president of global marketing for the Play-Doh brand. "By officially trademarking the iconic scent, we are able to protect an invaluable point of connection between the brand and fans for years to come."
