Comments Off on Whole Foods megafail orange packaging breaks the internet

Whole Foods , purported purveyor of products that support healthy people and a healthy planet, nearly broke the internet over the weekend as images of shocking product packaging went viral . The natural grocer was selling pre-peeled oranges in clear plastic tubs, essentially replacing nature’s own biodegradable packaging with an unnecessary and wasteful product. The company has since issued an apology and pulled the plastic-encased oranges from their shelves, but many other ridiculous packaging decisions are still being made in this and many other grocery store chains.

While Elon Musk originally conceived of the pods floating on a cushion of air, the MIT team decided to go in a different direction and create lift using strong magnets instead.

Comments Off on Will Smith says son “has refused to be a slave to money”

If you are looking for a little inspiration this weekend, how about this quote from proud papa Will Smith? According to Smith, his son refuses to be a slave to money and it is part of a larger trend in values that he sees developing. “It’s such a strange thing. Jaden, my 16-year-old, he has one pair of shoes. He has three pair of pants and he has five shirts, total,” said the actor. “He has refused to be a slave to money. I so respect that. The younger generation is less of an ownership generation,” Smith added.
