♦♦♦ A beach in Argentina has gone to the dogs! The beach in the resort town or Mar Del Plata is believed to be the country’s first beach exclusively for dogs. The ‘Dog Beach’ offers a recreation square, a private swimming pool for pups-only, and free canine snacks. This is serious business. Only question is – do they have human lifeguards?
♦♦♦ This might make you spit out your cornflakes. A criminal investigation has been launched after video emerged appearing to show someone urinating on an assembly line at a Kellogg factory. The video from 2014 was shot at a factory in Memphis, Tennessee.
The company says it told police as soon as they found out about the video.
♦♦♦ Amazon wants to bring new meaning to the phrase – “a million-dollar smile.” The company is now one step closer to letting you pay with your face. Amazon filed a patent application to allow users to pay for items by taking a selfie. They say the move would improve people’s security as they carry out more and more tasks online.
♦♦♦ OMG so cute. Meet Terry and Jeanie. These two chimpanzees met at an animal sanctuary in Florida. Terry was kept in solitary confinement for 18 YEARS before arriving at the sanctuary (disgusting, heartbreaking)…and he hasn’t been able to let go of Jeanie’s hand since.

♦♦♦ And how about pot on demand? There’s an app for that – but it won’t be working in California anytime soon.
The pot delivery app created by a company called Nestdrop, delivers medical marijuana with just the clip of a button. But the state of appeals court has upheld a lower court’s decision to issue a preliminary injuction on the app.
The court says the pot app violates a law that restricts medical marijuana facilities in Los Angeles.
♦♦♦ As if you needed another reason to watch 107-year-old Virginia McLaurin dance at the White House, here it is: Today, Ms. McLaurin will be accompanied by the Harlem Globetrotters at Roots Public Charter School in NW DC. McLaurin STILL volunteers at the school. The basketball stars got word of her school and they are going to present her with a jersey and donate 107 tickets to their games in DC and Fairfax, Virginia.
♦♦♦ I admit. I have not seen Hamilton: The musical. I know, I’m the worst. But trust me, it’s on my list.
However – just because I haven’t seen the hit show, doesn’t mean I don’t get just how awesome it is…which is why this clip of Lin Manuel Miranda, the creator of the show freestyling with the President is just so, so good.
Miranda was in the Rose Garden with President Obama, and the Commander in Chief held up cards with words associated with government. Mirando had to use each word in his freestyles! “Hamilton” tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, our first Secretary of Treasury. WATCH.
