JASON'S PICK - WINNER
$560M Lottery Winner Made A 'Huge Mistake'
After winning the $559.7 million Powerball grand prize drawn on Jan. 6. a New Hampshire woman she signed the back of the ticket, like the instructions told her to. The woman now wants to remain anonymous and claim the winnings in a trust. However, under New Hampshire's Right to Know law, lottery winnings can be awarded to a trust if the name of the trust appears on the winning ticket.
NY Lawmakers Call For Tide Pods Law
Two lawmakers in New York are calling for a law – other than Darwin – that will force companies to better package laundry detergent pods after a trend of young people eating the toxic item.
Senator Brad Hoylman says it's “outrageous” that Proctor and Gamble still hasn't made Tide pods safer and points out on Twitter that there've been thousands of incidents with children nationally and a growing trend called the Tide pod challenge where teens intentionally put them in their mouths sometimes leading to hospitalization.
"We want to make sure these poisonings are prevented,” Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas said at a press conference yesterday. “It’s easy. All we have to make sure is that public safety trumps their profits.” In addition to color changes, the bill would also require detergent packets to be enclosed in an individual wrapper (each pod in it’s own wrapper) and change the design so they are less appealing to children.
