    RUSH: Look at this headline: “Majority of Wild Coffee Species at Risk of Extinction, Study Finds.” This is in something called The Scientist magazine. Now, this is how climate change advocates do it. When all else is bombing out, when all else is failing, tell people that something they can’t do without, they don’t want to do without, tell people something that they habitually engage in is about to be taken away from them because of X. In this case, climate change. I’ve not shared them with you, but there have been doom-and-gloom stories about chocolate and bananas related to...

    Drugs and syringes have become such a problem in Starbucks bathrooms that the company is installing needle-disposal boxes in certain locations Starbucks is installing boxes for safe disposal of syringes in the bathrooms of certain locations, following workers' reports of discarded needles and sometimes concerning conditions. The coffee giant is exploring remedies after employees expressed fears about being pricked by uncapped needles and experiencing related health risks. Starbucks is testing solutions, including installing sharps-disposal boxes, using heavier-duty trash bags to prevent needle pokes, and removing trash cans from certain bathrooms.

    It's no secret San Francisco is one of the most expensive places in the country to live, but $21 for a cup of coffee? It could put some over the edge. The ridiculously pricey cup of joe isn't being offered at Starbucks or an upscale coffee shop, but at a San Francisco hotel. The Hilton's Parc 55 hotel will charge $170 for a gallon of coffee during the J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference this week. That works out to about $21.25 for a 16-ounce cup!

    ST LOUIS, MOIn an ecumenical council convened in St. Louis last week, the use of decaf coffee was condemned as rank heresy. The evangelical summit unanimously voted to define as heresy the "belief that decaf coffee is of any value, and good for anything other than being trampled under foot." "It is a wolf in sheep's clothing. It devours the unsuspecting. It doesn't even taste good, for crying out loud," said renowned New Testament scholar NT Wright during the summit. "I call on Christians of all stripes to forcefully reject this imposter gospel." The council rejected a motion to name...

    I have a friend who always drinks his coffee black with no sugar (and is rather pretentious about it, mind you), and whenever the server asks him if he wants milk, he makes the same joke: Ill take it black, like my soul. Now, a new study published in the journal Appetite suggests there may be something to that. Researchers at the University of Innsbruck in Austria asked more than 1,000 men and women to self-report their taste preferences and answer a questionnaire that assessed their Machiavellianism, psychopathy, narcissism, everyday sadism, trait aggression, and the Big Five factors of personality....

    During the lecture, titled "Coconut Oil and other Nutritional Errors," Karin Michels has made herself very clear with regard to dietary recommendations, and underlined that coconut oil is not healthy. Its superfood status had already come under scrutiny last year after the American Heart Association (AHA) updated its guidelines, which recommended that people avoid the saturated fatty acids found in coconut oil. Michels went a step further than to recommend avoiding the foodstuff, saying "coconut oil is pure poison" and "is one of the worst foods you can eat." There's no study showing significant health benefits to coconut-oil consumption. And,...

    New York Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez portrays herself as "a normal, working person," but one of her positions may have helped 150 people lose their jobs. After enduring mockery for declaring Sunday that a walk in a national park was an example of democratic socialism, Ocasio-Cortez lamented Monday the shutting down of an iconic New York coffee shop that closed mostly due to a higher minimum wage which Ocasio-Cortez supported. **SNIP** But unlike what Ocasio-Cortez wants you to believe about the closing down, it wasnt the result of greedy capitalists trying to squeeze the workers, but rather government regulations...

    If your family's from the Midwest (especially Wisconsin or Minnesota, both of which have a significant Scandinavian-rooted population), you might remember your grandma boiling up big, big batches of what she called Scandinavian coffee (or perhaps Norwegian or Swedish coffee, if she wanted to get specific). If she was making it for a church get-together, she might have called it church basement coffee and brought along one of these heavenly potluck dishes. But what was that secret-ingredient coffee that Gran made? If you peeked in the percolator, you might have seen it. The secret ingredient in Scandinavian coffee Eggs! They...

    Today, Americans have taken so much for granted. We look at our life and think that it is as it has always been. Indeed, it is assumed that the way things are today have always been that way. Yet, the simple and plain truth is that America has changed. Over the last few decades there has been tremendous changes at all levels of American society and culture. For instance, it is a recent phenomenon that restaurants can charge $8 for a cup of coffee. Or, that we have to take a urine sample to get employed. Casual day on Friday,...

    Go ahead and have that cup of coffee, maybe even several more. New research shows it may boost chances for a longer life, even for those who down at least eight cups daily. In a study of nearly half-a-million British adults, coffee drinkers had a slightly lower risk of death over 10 years than abstainers. The apparent longevity boost was seen with instant, ground and decaffeinated, results that echo U.S. research. Its the first large study to suggest a benefit even in people with genetic glitches affecting how their bodies use caffeine. Overall, coffee drinkers were about 10 percent to...

    The Third Place Policy maintains that employees should consider anyone who enters Starbucks space, including restrooms, cafes and patios, a customer regardless of whether they make a purchase, the company said in a statement. In a Starbucks subreddit, people are voicing concerns that the new policy will lead to stores being filled with homeless people and drug users. One user who claims they work at a Chicago Starbucks wrote that a homeless person using the bathroom got into a fight with a customer and police requested to see the store policy before taking action.

The new policy comes five weeks after two black men who hadnt bought anything were arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks. Company executives have said its previous policies were loose and ambiguous, leaving decisions on whether people could sit in its stores or use the restroom up to store managers. [] The company said anyone can use its cafs, patios or restrooms without buying anything, but it noted workers should still call the police if someone is...
