Starbucks is loosening its dress code. Still have to wear one of those attractive green aprons, but now its employees can show what they really are as the company’s announcement heralded their staff "to shine as individuals while continuing to present a clean, neat and professional appearance." 

And one of the newest ventures into food service is coming to us from Michael J. LaRue with help from his long time and now departed friend Rue McClanahan of the Golden Girls. His plan is to open up a Golden Girls café in Manhattan.

In case you missed this...
By 2025 One-Third of World Population Will Be ObeseThe Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that the average weight of U.S. men over the age of 20 has increased to 195.7 pounds, according to data from 2011 to 2014. The former average, 180.7 pounds, was based on data from 1988-1994. The heights of both men and women remained about the same.

The tale of woe doesn’t stop there. The average woman in 1960 weighed 140.2 pounds. Today, the average weight for a woman is 168.5 pounds. And as ABC News reports, adolescent boys and girls seem to be the most at risk, with a 12 pound average weight gain -- proportionately more based on height -- compared to 20 years ago. So what can we do about it? 

The App Review: EWG's Healthy Living: Each week we review a food related app. This week it’s EWG's Healthy Living – find out what the Lempert Report thought.

What it says it does: From food to shampoo – we are exposed to chemicals every second, yet we know very little about them. To navigate this complicated world and make safer choices, EWG combined two of their most popular resources to form the Healthy Living App. Now, the product health and safety ratings for over 200,000 food and cosmetics products are simply one click away.

Inside America's Maddening Gun-Tracing System

There's no telling how many guns we have in America — and when one gets used in a crime, no way for the cops to connect it to its owner. The only place the police can turn for help is a Kafkaesque agency in West Virginia, where, thanks to the gun lobby, computers are illegal and detective work is absurdly antiquated.
