Today in the News: - The Australian billionaire Clive Palmer wants to rebuild the Titanic - Pope Benedict to be called 'emeritus pope' - Drinkers sue Anheuser-Busch for 'watering down' beer
The Australian billionaire Clive Palmer, who is financing the replica luxury liner Titanic, unveiled blueprints for the ship that will be built in China, where else?!, he also wants Titanic 2 to take the same maiden voyage in 2016 as the original Titanic from Southampton, England, to New York City...well you know minus the iceberg. He wants the area for passengers to be authentic with the same design and facilities. But there will also be modern equipment such as air conditioning and other features - such as internet on the ship. Even Costumes inspired by the 1920s will be provided. And, yes, enough life boats for everyone. I dont know about you guys but to me it sounds a little ominous this idea. And no way do we wanna set foot on that thing. If there is a Titanic 2 there might also be an iceberg 2.
Pope Benedict XVI will be known as "emeritus pope" in his retirement and will continue to wear a white cassock. The pope's title and what he would wear has been a major question ever since Benedict stunned the world and announced he would resign on Thursday, the first pontiff to do so in 600 years. While he will no longer wear his trademark red shoes, Benedict has taken a liking to a pair of hand-crafted brown loafers made for him by artisans in Leon, Mexico, and presented to him during his 2012 visit. He will wear those in retirement. Hmmm I really didnt think that pope's are this fashion conscious.
Beer drinkers in the US have filed a $5m lawsuit accusing Anheuser-Busch of watering down its beer. The lawsuits, filed in Pennsylvania, California and other states, claim consumers have been cheated out of the alcohol content stated on beer labels. The suit involves 10 Anheuser-Busch beers including Budweiser and Michelob. Anheuser-Busch is denying all claims of course, but the lawsuits are based on information from former employees at breweries owned by the multinational. Apparently the watering down practice began after the American Anheuser-Busch merged with the Belgian-Brazilian InBev in 2008, to form the world's largest alcohol producer. And this ladies and gentleman is where mass production is hurting the consumer and I am not really surprised at these allegations. I mean they are growing headless chickens for crying out loud, so why not water down beer, as long as you dont notice all fair game no?
