Starbucks Offends Customer!

Do you know how many calories are in your Starbucks coffee?

A Starbucks customer was highly offended by the writing placed on his coffee. This man, who asked to remain anonymous, purchased a Grande White Mocha that had written, “Diabetes here I come”. Little did the Starbucks employee know, the man has two sisters who have been fighting Type 1 Diabetes since they were young. Thus, the man was triggered by the comment and wrote back on the cup, “2 of my sisters are diabetic, so … not funny.”

The angered customer sent a picture of the Mocha to the store manager who is working to fix the problem and said, “We strive to provide an inclusive and positive experience for our customers, and we’re disappointed to learn of this incident. We are working directly with the customer to apologize for his experience, and with our partners (employees) to ensure this does not happen again.”

So how many calories are in your Starbucks coffee? The answer is unbelievable- The Grande White Mocha above is a 16 oz. with 470 calories. Thus, Starbucks has been under fire for how unhealthy some of their drinks are. To put in perspective how much 470 calories is, imagine more calories than a double-cheese burger from McDonald’s!

1896 Summer Olympic Games in Athens, Greece

Today marks the 120th Anniversary of the First Modern Era Olympics that were held in Athens, Greece. Participating athletes were given olive wreaths to wear as they would have done in Ancient Greece. Despite the fact that the games were first held in Athens in 1896, the games didn’t return until 2004. That’s 108 years later!

The London Olympics, in 1948 were the first televised Olympics. London is the only city to have hosted the games 3 times. The games have been held continuously ever four years since 1896 with the exception of 1940 and 1944 during the time of World War II.

This years Olympics will be held in Rio de Janeiro which is the second largest city in Brazil and will go from August 5, 2016 – August 21,2016. This Summer ’16 Olympics will be the first Olympics held in South America. The list of all host cities for the Olympics thus far and the future cities can be found here.

This will be the final Olympics for two legends in the games history including Jamaica’s Usain Bolt and our own Michael Phelps.  Usain Bolt, known as “The Lightning Bolt”, is the fastest man to ever be timed and holds world records in the 100 and 200 meters as well as the 4 x 100 meter relay with his fellow teammates. These records seem to be untouchable. He is the first man ever to hold the record in both the 100 and 200 meter runs and is my favorite athlete competing this year in the games.

Michael Phelps of the United States, on the other hand, is the most decorated swimmer in history with 22 medals and is the all-time gold medal leader with 18 gold medals (He doubles the second highest medal holders in this category!).

Justin Bieber Concert in Salt Lake City, Utah Highlights

Justin Bieber stopped in Salt Lake City for his “Purpose” Tour last Saturday. The entire concert was sold out with an occasional scalper here and there giving a few lucky fans the chance to see Bieber in person. The Introduction to the concert can be found here.

Thousands of excited Justin Bieber “Belieber’s” filled the Vivint Smart Home Arena to see Bieber. If you are wondering what a true Belieber is than here is your answer from the urban dictionary:

  1. Belieber– One who is an obsessive fan of Justin Bieber.
Sentence: Once I saw his face, I was a Belieber.
     2. Belieber– A person who loves Justin Bieber and Beliebes in everything that he can do.

Sentence: I am a Belieber because I respect Justin Bieber and I believe in him.
      3. Belieber– Belieber is a HUGE Justin Bieber’s fan. Fan and Belieber is really different, Fan will leave him just because a little thing, but Belieber is not going to leave him even though the biggest thing that can break a relationship.
      4. Belieber-A ‘Belieber’ is a fan girl of teeny bopper sensation Justin Bieber. They are usually between the age of 10-15. A lot of them spend most of their life on Twitter where they:
Tweet about how much they love Justin Bieber
Shout-out other ‘beliebers’
-Use a lot of tags like #ifollowback or #teamfollowback.

Other twitter users who are not beliebers (and/or above the age of 15) get rather annoyed by the insane amount of ‘beliebers’ on Twitter and counter act with tags like #Justinbeibersucks.

Beliebers are also well known for fainting at Justin Bieber concerts/appearances. They are also well known for covering their room and school books with pictures of Justin Bieber.

Kanye’s “Life of Pablo” is now available on Spotify and Apple Music

Kanye the “Kan” Artist

Originally, Kanye West had announced that the much anticipated album, The Life of Pablo , would be exclusively available on Tidal. Guess not. The new album is now available on Spotify and Apple Music. This is not an April Fools Joke!

Kanye’s plan, with the con of lots of criticism, worked well, as he was able to get 250 million streams on Tidal in the first 10 days of its release as customers thought it was the only way to get the album. Thus, Kanye sold his album for an expensive price getting new subscribers to Tidal before announcing today that he would release the album to the public. Not a bad business plan if you ask me. Not the best reputation builder though either.
