Cupcake Business Run By 11-Year-Old Shuttered By Illinois Health Officials - Yahoo



Quote:
Chloe, 11, said she was told by health officials in Madison County, Ill., that if she wants to continue selling cupcakes she will need to buy a bakery or build a separate kitchen.
"It bummed me out because I wanted to keep baking," Chloe told ABCNews.com. "I had a bunch of orders and they said I had to cancel them all."
Stirling, who is in sixth grade, has operated "Hey Cupcake" out of her family's kitchen in Troy, Ill., for the past two years. And it appears her success may have invited the scrutiny of regulators.
The cupcake mogul said she's raked in some serious dough for a kid her age, charging $10 for a dozen cupcakes and $2 each for the more elaborate treats, such as cakes that look like high heel shoes.
"It felt good because with all my money I could buy stuff I wanted and didn't have to wait until my birthday or Christmas," Chloe said, adding that she was also saving money for a car.
No cupcakes for you!

Hackers have developed a drone that can steal information from smartphones, CNNMoney reports. Itís being tested in London, and research on the dronesí functionality will be presented at the Black Hat Asia cybersecurity conference in Singapore next week.

The droneís technology is called Snoopy, which sounds innocuous and is anything but. It looks for mobile devices with WiFi functions turned on, then sends out a signal pretending to be a WiFi network the smartphone is familiar with. Snoopy can then intercept all of the phoneís messages.

Snoopy can access browser history, credit card information data, usernames and passwords, CNNMoney reports. In less than one hour of flying the drone, a CNNMoney reporter obtained network names and GPS coordinates for 150 mobile devices.

Breaking Americaís meat monopoly

In the past 60 years, the United States has fallen deeply in love with meat. What was once a treat is now expected at every meal to the point where we can get it in a tube. The demand for meat has increased dramatically, and the largest meat companies have found ways to fulfill that demand cheaply. Itís not a surprise that the path to the six cent Chicken McNugget was built at the expense of not only the chickens themselves, but farmers and smaller meat plants. The quest for cheap meat has resulted in a ruthless market that has left 85 percent of supply in the hands of five companies.

This oligopoly has driven the meat industry to do some very impressive and terrifying things. We raise nine billion animals for the slaughter a year. To do that responsibly in a way that respects the animal, the consumer, and the farmer just isnít possible. The old clip from Sesame Street is still the image many Americans think of when they imagine a farm. It has an understated beauty, a pastoral ideal that romanticizes the American farmer. But the meat industry lost respect for the farmer a long time ago.


I'm a vegetarian and I consider meat-eaters to be selfish and short-sighted.

I tend to agree with you on the over all meat industry review but since you have already stated that any and all people who eat meat and are not like yourself are selfish and shortsighted I guess there is no need to discuss since you have insulted everyone not like you .

How is it an insult when it's my considered opinion, based on facts?

Re: Super Happy Unfun Thread!

I really didn't know where to put this:

China ship hears 'signal'; unclear if jet-related

I hope they look at simple (not huge re-vamps) fixes to help in these instances. For example my phone has an app that sends a gps "flare" if the battery dies. That way I could go to the web and at least have an idea of where it was the last time it was on. I would think that a simple GPS flare idea would be something doable for planes. In cases of sudden loss of altitude, or if at time of landing/crashing if the GPS doesn't match the destination coordinates, it shoots off a GPS flare.

Just something "simple"

Re: Super Happy Unfun Thread!

they turned their avionics off, whoever had ground radar coverage wasn't immediately forthcoming.

planes have an underwater beacon that sends out a low frequency signal (cause water) once it goes below sea level. battery lasts 20-30 days, depending on how good they are at replacing the batteries, and only works up to 20,000 feet. can only be detected a few miles away (cause water).

gps is a one way signal, in order to send a flare, it'd have to do it over a radio or radio-enabled device (iff mode s, etc), which again, they turned off.

also if they were that far out into the ocean, HF radio is they only thing that'd have enough range, which generally are only used in heavy military aircraft, as the system requires long wire antennas and 90 pounds of equipment.

vhf/uhf radios caps at about 200-300 miles, and i don't think most commercial airlines are installing satcom systems.
