Starbucks Christmas Tree Frappuccino tastes like sugar and regret (but I took many photos)  

Starbucks Christmas Tree Frappuccino tastes like sugar and regret (but I took many photos)Nothing says Christmas like a cold cup of sugar.  At least that's what I kept telling myself as I took a sip, and another one of the Christmas Tree Frappuccino. It's Starbucks' latest concoction that has people running out to corporate coffee shops, where they spend $5 and most likely take a bunch of smartphone photos to later post on social media.  Like this:  I have amended this pic.twitter.com/d46gbs1dyQ — Kerry Flynn (@kerrymflynn) December 10, 2017 Like any good business reporter, I jumped on the trend Sunday. After my editor shared a piece by The Denver Post reviewing the drink and some tweets of people's reactions, I asked if I could go get one and try it myself. Because that, my friends, is reporting.  My @Starbucks Christmas tree Frappuccino doesn’t look nearly as pretty as the one in the picture. pic.twitter.com/el2ql89VKf — ⚜️susan⚜️ (@NotYourFlyGurl) December 7, 2017 Well, I've been wanting to get one ever since my sister shared the Starbucks ad in our family group Thursday morning.  Three hours later, my mom shared a picture of hers. Her review: "It is delicious." Her favorite part was the candied cranberry topping.  Image: screenshot Image: screenshot I had participated in two of the previous limited-edition Starbucks drinks.  The Unicorn Frappuccino, a trend debut, was actually not too bad in my biased opinion. Though I think I was on an emotional high because I drank them with Chloe the Mini Frenchie (RIP).  important coffee meeting with @kerrymflynn who you would share a unicorn frappuccino with? ☕️ A post shared by Chloe The Mini Frenchie (@chloetheminifrenchie) on Apr 19, 2017 at 5:53pm PDT The Zombie Frappuccino was strange, but I was also in the middle of emceeing an event in Columbus, Ohio.  I definitely couldn't let this one escape me.  And so that's how I ended up drinking 420 calories on a Sunday morning. Fortunately, I live four blocks from a Starbucks, so it wasn't too burdensome to put on a jacket and walk out in the cold weather for a frozen beverage.  The most embarrassing part was probably ordering when I asked for a "Christmas Tree Frappuccino" and the barista replied, "What?" So then I had to repeat myself over a cringeworthy order while the person in front of me just sipped her cup of hot coffee.  I waited to take a sip until I could take photos. Because, of course, that's exactly what Starbucks wants us all to do. All of our tweets are free ads. Actually, they're not just free. We're not getting paid. We're paying them. Starbucks is making money having us all make ads for them. It's brilliant, and I'm happy to be part of it.  This looks absolutely horrible pic.twitter.com/VLzIWKzbQU — Kerry Flynn (@kerrymflynn) December 10, 2017 Look I’m an ad for @Starbucks (also my hand is so cold and I may die) pic.twitter.com/foM1Z6KUMp — Kerry Flynn (@kerrymflynn) December 10, 2017 I got home and looked at the drink on my counter. The Matcha whipped cream had melted to half its height from before. I finally noticed that there was no candied cranberry topping. But I regretfully took a sip. And oh man, it was not good. Thin Mints are great (Disclosure: I'm a Girl Scout). Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream is awesome.  The Starbucks Christmas Tree Frappuccino is not either of those things. Every sip of this beverage is an overload of sugar. I'd rather crush up a bunch of Thin Mints and mix them with some ice and milk in a blender than continue sipping this.  I'm not going to tell you not to get a Christmas Tree Frappuccino because you can probably make your own decisions. But this is not good and you can spend $5 on something else. If you need the picture, go to Starbucks and just wait for someone else to order one. But be good to yourself, and don't drink it.  Honestly I don’t know how I’m still doing this pic.twitter.com/V6MYMQTgcM — Kerry Flynn (@kerrymflynn) December 10, 2017 Please.  WATCH: This mini elliptical is a spin class under your desk

The Army's Has Over 100,000 'New' M4A1 Rifles - Here's What They Can Do  

The Army's Has Over 100,000 'New' M4A1 Rifles - Here's What They Can DoTo date, the Army has completed more than 117,000 M4A1 upgrades on the way to the eventual transformation of more than 480,000 M4 rifles. As a result, it is entirely conceivable that the Army will explore new requirements and technologies for the M4A1 as time goes on. The service’s so-called M4 Product Improvement Program, or PIP, is a far-reaching initiative to upgrade the Army’s entire current inventory of M4 rifles into higher-tech, durable and more lethal M4A1 weapons, Army spokesman Pete Rowland, spokesman for PM Soldier Weapons, told Scout Warrior in an interview.

S. Korea to impose new sanctions on Pyongyang: report  

S. Korea to impose new sanctions on Pyongyang: reportSouth Korea will impose new unilateral sanctions against nuclear-armed Pyongyang, a report said Sunday, in Seoul's latest effort to pressure the North after a series of weapons tests that have sent regional tensions surging. The move comes after a rare visit to North Korea by a senior UN official, who called for dialogue between Pyongyang and the international community to avert a potentially catastrophic "miscalculation" in the high-stakes nuclear crisis. Seoul's new measures, its second set of unilateral sanctions in a month, are likely to draw an angry response from Pyongyang, which views its neighbour as overly-dependent on a hostile Washington.

Thousands march in Tel Aviv to protest against corruption and Netanyahu government  

Thousands march in Tel Aviv to protest against corruption and Netanyahu governmentThousands of Israelis protested in Tel Aviv on Saturday for the second consecutive week against government corruption and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is under criminal investigation over allegations of abuse of office. Police estimated the number of demonstrators at about 10,000 and they followed last Saturday's demonstration, which was by far the largest of the recent weekly anti-corruption protests when an estimated 20,000 people participated. The protests have been sparked by corruption allegations against Netanyahu, who denies any wrongdoing. The four-term leader is suspected of involvement in two cases. The first involves receiving gifts from wealthy businessmen and the second involves negotiating a deal with a newspaper owner for better coverage in return for curbs on a rival daily. Israelis take part in a demonstration under the name "March of Shame" to protest against government corruption and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu  Credit: Jack Guez/AFP If charged, he would come under heavy pressure to resign or could call an election to test whether he still had a mandate to govern. Netanyahu's right-wing Likud party said in a Facebook post that the protest was a left-wing demonstration. It called on all Israelis to back their prime minister as he defends Israel against international criticism following U.S. President Donald Trump's acceptance of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. "Instead of uniting with all the people behind Jerusalem and showing the world a unified front, the left cannot contain itself and it prefers to create division," part of the statement said. Over weeks of demonstrations, protesters have identified themselves as supporting both left- and right-wing parties. On Saturday they held banners reading: "Neither left, nor right (we demand) integrity," "We are fed up with corrupt (politicians)" and "Sweep the corrupt away."

California fires: Year around blazes set to become 'the new normal' as Governor blames climate changeCalifornia Governor Jerry Brown has told the state’s residents to get used to destructive wildfires in winter, declaring them “the new normal”. As six major fires ravage southern California, having led to the death of one person and the destruction of hundreds of homes and other buildings, Mr Brown said the state needed to face up to a new challenge. Visiting Ventura County, where the largest of the blazes – the Thomas Fire – is still growing, Mr Brown said drought and climate change mean California faces a “new reality” where lives and property are continually threatened by fire, at a cost of billions of dollars.

China's 'tiger mothers' rebel against punitive homework for parents  

China's 'tiger mothers' rebel against punitive homework for parentsFed up with picking up the slack in terms of helping her son with his heavy school workload, 39-year-old mother, Mrs Wang, has joined millions of like-minded parents who are calling for something that China’s ‘tiger mothers’ would have considered unthinkable only a few years ago – a break from homework. The campaign focuses on the frustrations of parents who believe they shouldn’t be spending their evenings tackling arithmetic questions or reciting complex sentence structures when they could be watching a soap or reading a magazine. It was triggered by a viral post titled: “Goodness, what have I done wrong to have to do homework with my kids.” After millions on views on Sina Weibo, China’s Twitter, parents flocked to social media to share their own stories. Since then, three Chinese provinces have issued regulations banning schools from giving out homework which would involve parents. Three years ago, Mrs Wang’s family spent their life savings to move to a desirable catchment area where they could enroll their son, now aged nine, at an elite primary school that would compel him to work long hours. Like the majority of Chinese parents, she believed she was doing the best for her family by helping him attain the grades needed to enter a top secondary school. But after becoming heavily involved in helping her son meet those tough demands – usually after a ten-hour day at her busy Beijing office - Ms Wang now views the school as a source of conflict in her house and a major drain on her own time. “Sometimes all I think about when I am at work is my son’s homework,” said Mrs Wang, who only provided her surname. Chinese social media is full of stories from parents sharing experiences of screaming and shouting their way through homework with their offspring. One post said: “When I returned from school when I was young, my parents watched TV while I did my homework. “Now when I get home from work... I still have to do homework.” Other parents told how homework-related stress had caused them serious health problems or driven them to the brink of madness. “Come homework time, the whole yard knows my howls,” one said. Opposition from parents stunted previous attempts by the government to soften China’s notoriously high-pressure education system. A programme dubbed ‘happy education’ was rolled out four years ago, but there was resistance to slashing levels of homework, which is said to be around three hours a day in China - twice the global average. Consequently, the 2013 reforms resulted in teachers facing pressure from both sides. They were being told by education officials to relax academic learning, but parents were telling them to push their children harder. The teachers responded by involving parents more in the challenging topics. However, things didn’t go to plan. “It has become a vicious cycle because students submitted homework that had been polished by their parents, so teachers assigned more difficult homework,” one teacher told local media. Some parents choose to send their children to one of a growing number of expensive after-school institutions where they can finish their homework before being picked up. But education chiefs are already fighting back against challenging workloads, with officials in the eastern Jiangsu  and Zhejiang provinces, and also the northern Ningxia province, ruling that homework should not become “parental homework” or be set “above the level of the curriculum or the ability of the student”. Mrs Wang, meanwhile, has recently adopted a new daily regime. When she returns home from work, she instantly kicks off her shoes, makes a cup of green tea and changes into her pyjamas. She has decided that she won’t let her son’s academic frustrations affect the relationship she has with him, or her own work-life balance. Additional reporting by Christine Wei


 

Egypt reveals artefacts, mummy from tombs in ancient city of Luxor  

Egypt reveals artefacts, mummy from tombs in ancient city of LuxorEgypt's authorities on Saturday revealed artefacts and a linen-wrapped mummified body, possibly that of a top official, from two tombs that were discovered two decades ago in the Nile city of Luxor but had not been fully unexplored. The Ministry of Antiquities said the tombs, located in the Draa Abul Naga necropolis on Luxor's west bank, had been noted by German archaeologist Frederica Kampp in 1990s and were either unexcavated or had never been entered. Along with the mummy, archaeologists found painted wooden funeral masks and several hundred carved statues, likely dating around the end of Egypt's 17th Dynasty or the start of the 18th Dynasty, the ministry said.
