Country Time Lemonade is going to pay fines and permits for kids who get in trouble for their lemonade stands.
Country Time Lemonade announced a "Country Time Legal-ade" program to pay fines and permits for kids whose lemonade stands get them into trouble.
The lemonade brand, owned by Kraft Heinz, announced the new program will cover fees of up to $300 for lemonade stands owned by kids under the age of 14 who were fined for operating their small businesses without a permit.
The company said it will also cover the cost of permits purchased this year for lemonade stands.
"Life doesn't always give you lemons, but when it does, you should be able to make and share lemonade with the neighborhood without legal implications," the company said. "That's why we're here to take a stand for lemonade stands across the nation."
Officials said the program was inspired by news coverage of kids whose lemonade stands were shut down by local authorities for operating without a permit.
"When we saw these stories about lemonade stands being shut down for legal reasons, we thought it had to be an urban myth. After looking into it and seeing even more instances, we realized these weren't myths, they were real stories," Adam Butler, Kraft Heinz's general manager of beverages and nuts, told CNN. " A very real response seemed the best way to shine a light on the issue."
Setting up the perfect Instagram photo!
The lengths people will go to get that perfect Instagam shot of their food. From standing on tables to getting the perfect lighting, it’s a wonder people actually eat their food. That’s why Boston steakhouse, Boston Chops has invested $10-thousand to create an “Instagram table” in their restaurant to help customers get their likeable shots.
The table, which requires a reservation, includes, “moveable arm lights, adjustable light intensities and adjustable color temperature settings.” Co-owner Chris Coombs feels this is the perfect addition to the restaurant in the age of social media. "Now, it is imperative that photos of restaurant interior and food are beautiful when they are posted online by influencers,” he says. “It is a great marketing tool for people to see our food, décor and cocktails and hopefully entice them to check it out for themselves.”
Coombs and co-owner Brian Piccini even met with social media influencers to discuss the set up and what the perfect social media photo looks like. They made sure to create a space “where anyone wanting to post food photos on social media will have the perfect picture every time.” And if you can’t score the table for the night, there are other Instagrammable moments in the restaurant fitted with art, signs, and backgrounds for the ‘gram.

Get paid to get stung by jellyfish!!
Researchers at the University of Hawaii are offering to pay people $100 to get stung by a jellyfish. Beachgoers report that they’ve tried everything from sea water to vinegar to help ease the pain of a jellyfish sting, but this new study will help develop a first-aid treatment for them.
"Optomized first-aid can prevent a simple sting that's localized from becoming a life threatening situation," says lead researcher of the study, Dr. Angel Yanagihara. The study will test various methods of treatment including hot and cold compresses, Coca-Cola, vinegar, and a newly developed spray and cream. Participants will only be stung with one-inch tentacles. Therefore, Yanagihara believes the study is safe based on the small dose.
She thinks the study is important so lifeguards will know exactly what to do when someone gets stung, especially in Hawaii. "It's important to us here in Hawaii of course," Yanagihara offers. "We have tourism, we want to be able to provide our residents, our visitors with scientifically proven first aid."
