Utah School To Make Students Pay For Being Late…Literally
We all know it’s not good for kids to be late for school, but one school in Utah may be going to a bit of an extreme to stop it from ever happening again.
Stansbury Park High School in Stansbury Park, Utah has instituted a new policy in which students will be fined if they are late for class. Kids will get by with a warning on their first late arrival but after that they’ll have to start paying up, $3 for their second late arrival, and $5 for each one after that.
"What we're really trying to target is those periods between classes where really it's a choice," Cody Reutzel, assistant principal, says. "It's a personal decision of whether you're going to walk from class A to class B and be on time."
As you can imagine, not everyone is happy about the fines, with one parent suggesting it’s "not going to fix the problem that they're facing,” and another saying it’s just a way to “make a money grab out of the thing,” although the funds will actually go back to the students in the form of incentives.
And students won’t necessarily have to pay for their lateness with actual money. They also have the option of cleaning their slate by serving lunch detention, or not being late for a few weeks.
What's Up With This "Gluten Free" Water?
Food labeling is getting absolutely out of hand. Companies everywhere are marking their food products with “organic” or “GMO free” to entice people to buy the product - even if it’s not necessary or true. What’s next? “Premium” water. This water is free of GMOs, gluten, and hormones – three things that water never actually had to begin with.
But these products tend to have a higher price tag, too. So sure, the rich health freaks out there will snap it up, but it’s not like it’s actually doing anything for their diets. So what’s the real problem with this besides making foods more expensive?
Labeling foods as “GMO free” or “no gluten” suggests that we shouldn’t be having either of those things when in reality, neither is all that bad for us (unless you have a gluten allergy).
So the “gluten free” water is – as we expected – just a load of expensive crap. Figures!

New Workout Pants Can “Eat” Away The Inches
A lot of people will do anything to be able to lose a few inches without putting in much effort and now a new pair of leggings may be the answer to their prayers.
A company called Lanaform Natural Healthcare just introduced Mass & Slim Leggings, an exercise pant they claim can shape the body because it “eats your skin.” The stretchy pants are lined with beads made from the crystalline mineral Tourmaline, that can “give rise to a slight, localized increase in skin temperature which can help the body irrigate fat cells more effectively and thus combat cellulite."
“The Tourmaline dots effectively eat your skin helping you to lose weight quickly,” a spokesperson told the “Daily Mail,” with the company saying users can lose about an inch from their legs, stomachs and even thighs in just two months, The pants don’t come cheap though, selling at $46, but with those results it may well be worth it.
