News with a twist

What about the SPF?
magazines say last year’s trend in the U.K. has washed up on U.S.
beaches. Some sunbathers are using Coca-Cola as self-tanner. Is it
effective? Apparently, Coke can provide a temporary stain — but it isn’t
the real thing. Dr. Joshua Zeichner, a dermatologist at Mount Sinai,
told Allure magazine, “I recommend staying away from it.
Applying it to the skin may lead to a temporary darkening or staining of
the skin, but because sodas are acidic, it may exfoliate dead cells,
enhancing the ability of UV light to penetrate into the skin.” So, cola
to exfoliate? Maybe.
AI for Alpha kids
a professional organization dedicated to advancing technology, recently
released results of a survey asking millennial parents of generation
Alpha kids — children 7 years old or younger — about artificial
intelligence. About two-thirds of the parents would prefer to have AI
rather than their kids help them live independently in their golden
years. About 48 percent of parents would get a robot pet instead of a
real pet if their kid wanted one. And about 40 percent would hire a
robo-nanny in place of a real nanny. Of course, a new survey will be
required next year, after the release of Mary Poppins Returns.

man who bought a dilapidated house next to his childhood home in
Pennsylvania undertook an extensive renovation and discovered the
eyesore was a 300-year-old log cabin — one of the oldest homes in the
state. After removing layers of exterior, the 71-year-old man found a
log home untouched — except by time — since 1704.
Whether you like men smooth, hairy or not at all, you might find this interesting. MissTravel.com
asked more than 4,000 people about their opinions of hirsute men.
Sixty-one percent of women said they prefer their men bare, while 58
percent of gay men said they like them bushy. But asked whether they
manscape their chest hair, 46 percent of men said yes, while 54 percent
said no. “There’s a disconnect between how a woman wants a man to look,
and how he actually looks,” said MissTravel.com CEO Brandon Wade. But apparently not so for gay men.
artist Dario Gambarin used his tractor to transform a field near the
city of Verona into a portrait of Russian President Vladimir Putin ahead
of the Group of 20 summit. The AP said the artist creates his giant
images with a good eye and tractor skills. Last year, Gambarin created
portraits of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. To everything, there is a

The Collective Brewing Project in
Texas is catering to college students — or perhaps nostalgic college
grads — with its latest concoction. The Cup O’ Beer is brewed with ramen
noodles and, according to the Fort Worth brewery, delivers notes of
ginger, lime, lemongrass and a seaweed-cured sea salt. From tap, the
beer is served in Styrofoam cups. To go, the beer retails for a
not-so-nostalgic price — $7 a bottle.

Donald Trump wearing a sombrero and a swastika belt buckle and declares
the president of the United States belongs “in a mad house, not the
White House.” Luis Enrique de la Reguera, chief executive of brewery
Casa Cervecera Cru Cru, said the beer has been selling “extremely fast”
since it arrived on the market in May. Credit for the IPA goes to Cru
Cru, Mexican partner Error de Diciembre and U.S.-based Epic Brewing, in a
show of cross-border cooperation.
Florida man accidentally shot himself in the penis after unwittingly

for possessing the firearm that wrecked his junk.
Woops, wrong car
22-year-old Pennsylvania man is facing charges after breaking into a

the officers apprehended him.
