Judge Throws Out PETA Lawsuit Seeking To Stop Ca Happy Cows Ads

September 7, 2012

A California judge has thrown out a lawsuit filed by  People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) seeking to stop  California dairy farmers from running TV ads touting how happy, healthy and well-cared for dairy  herds are.

PETA, which filed the lawsuit in 2011, had argued that the California  Milk Advisory Board and the California Department of Food and  Agriculture had violated state rules that bar misleading or inaccurate  marketing with the “Happy Cows” ads.

The animal rights group had demanded that California dairy farmers  prove that California cows are “happy cows,” as the milk board claimed  in the ads.

Facebook CEO Moving To Farmville, Angry Birds On High Alert

May 27, 2011

When he’s not too busy connecting people across the universe, Mark Zuckerberg is pursuing a new “personal challenge,” as he calls it. “The only meat I’m eating is from animals I’ve killed myself,” says the Facebook founder and CEO.

It’s an odd dietary direction for the 27-year-old Internet billionaire, but since he has taken to killing goats, pigs and chickens, “I’m eating a lot healthier foods. And I’ve learned a lot about sustainable farming and raising of animals,” he says. “It’s easy to take the food we eat for granted when we can eat good things every day.”

Zuckerberg’s new goal came to light, not surprisingly, on Facebook. On May 4, Zuckerberg posted a note to the 847 friends on his private page: “I just killed a pig and a goat.

This drew a stream of emotional comments, which were a mixture of confusion, curiosity, and outright disgust. Zuckerberg posted his own comment in response, explaining that he fixates on a personal challenge each year (in 2009, he wore a tie every day), and this year’s is about animals and meat.

Angry Birds Just Got A Whole Lot Angrier

January 18, 2011

Bubble Ball, a physics puzzle game, knocked the smash hit game Angry Birds out of its top spot on the Apple App Store’s list of most popular free apps.

While Angry Birds was created by a 17-person company based in Finland, Bubble Ball is the work of 14-year-old Robert Nay, an eighth grader living in Spanish Fork, Utah, who taught himself how to program and created his first website while in third grade.

His company, Nay Games, launched an iOS version of the app on December 29 and its popularity in the App Store quickly skyrocketed. As ABC News reports, “during the past two weeks, his free game ‘Bubble Ball’ has been downloaded more than 2 million times.”

At last word, The Angry Birds are planning a board meeting to determine strategy on how to deal with the 8th grader.
