How natural does ‘natural’ have to be? It appears that the Organic Consumers Association (and other groups) have an answer. A lawsuit from a few years ago has forced General Mills, makers of the crunchy granola snack Nature Valley, to drop the “100% Natural” label from their advertising. The snack contains traces of a chemical called glyphosate, which is actually a weed killer. The inclusion of this substance is in accordance with EPA standards (30 parts per million in grains), whereas Nature Valley products include .45 parts per million.

Do you ever find yourself in a state of saying, “That’s not fair!” or bickering with a house mate or sibling over what to watch on television? You aren’t alone—and if you are a Cablevision customer a lot of unfairness has been flying under the radar. However, the injustice is coming to an end.
Even if you are a sworn Suave customer or only buy Herbal Essences for your hair care needs, you have probably seen or heard about WEN.

Think of your daily routine, wake up, go to work, clock in, have lunch, work some more then clock out.

Sad to report, this isn’t a hypothetical for some workers; this is reality for the workers at Delaney Hall in Newark, New Jersey.
Johnny Football has had a harder time escaping and eluding public headlines, compared to collegiate and professional defensive players. The good news is that he does not seem to mind, which gives reporters plenty of fresh content while keeping his name relevant. Manziel is being sued for over $40,000 by The Goodwin Group Inc., for physical damage and rule violations with regard to a property he rented from April 4th – April 6th. Damages have exceeded $19,000, including “extensive burn marks from cigarettes and marijuana” and wine stains “that cannot be removed” from the carpet, according to the ESPN.com news article. As a part of the rental documentation, Manziel agreed to terms that the property was strictly for his personal and private use and that he would pay a fine of $10,000 any time 15 or more people were at the property. Staying true to form, Johnny violated this rule twice, resulting in two separate $10,000 fines.
