Arizona Iced Tea X Adidas— Arizona Iced Tea has an oddly addictive quality. It was made for the kind of hot, steamy day when you sweat for no particular reason. Sure, water is what you need, but where’s the fun in that? Oh, and a can of the stuff is only $0.99. That’s also how much their sneaker developed in collaboration with Adidas was supposed to cost. The shoes were apparently going to be sold at a NYC pop-up today, but the event drew more people than expected. Sneaker heads queued for hours waiting at the chance to buy a pair, unfortunately the pop-up was shut down by the police due to safety concerns. 300— A new study funded by the National Institutes of Health has revealed an amazing find. Using a method called Calorie Restriction (that’s: reducing caloric intake) subjects decreased their intake by an average of 300 calories/day and saw reductions in weight and body fat, improved cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, better blood sugar control, and less inflammation. Big Fish— The Thai fishing industry supplies the US, Europe, and Asia with seafood. Turns out, slavery may have been playing a role in bringing the fish to the table. A new documentary film, Ghost Fleet, features abolitionist, Patima Tungpuchayakul, and is focused on her work with Thailand’s “lost” men; men who were kidnapped or drugged and taken captive and forced to fish with no pay. Many never see their families again. Finally— This food mockumentary series sounds right on time.
