Sonic Drive-In is bringing pickle juice to customers in its signature slush form.

Food & Wine reported that the drive-in restaurant chain will have pickle juice slushes on its menu this summer.

“Quite simply, pickle juice is fun,” Scott Uehlein, Sonic's vice president of product innovation and development, told Today in a statement. “Nothing says summer like a Sonic slush.”

According to Food & Wine writers who were able to taste the drink at Sonic’s Oklahoma City headquarters, the bright green treat is sweet and tangy. 

A Sonic team member told the publication that the syrup that makes the pickle slush can be added to anything once it’s on the menu, but it will be up to each franchise to decide if there is a charge for that.

Pickle juice slushes will be available to order at Sonic restaurants in June.

Michigan U.S. Senate candidate wants to arm the homeless with shotguns

A U.S. Senate candidate in Michigan has a plan to arm homeless people in an effort to reduce violent crime.

Candidate Brian Ellison, a Libertarian, is trying to raise $10,000 to put his plan “Arm the Homeless,  plan into action to train and provide weapons to the homeless in metro Detroit, according to

Ellison said the homeless need to be able to protect themselves. "Homeless people are people too, and they have a right to defend themselves," he told MLive.

Ellison said in an interview with the Guardian he thinks the best weapon for a homeless person is a pistol.

“But due to the licensing requirements in the state we’re going to have a hard enough time getting homeless people shotguns as it is,” he said.

“Getting them pistols is probably next to impossible. The pistols need to be registered, people have to have addresses.”

Ellison also told the Guardian he isn’t worried about people walking around town with loaded shotguns and he doesn’t think it presents any additional danger. Giving the homeless ammunition along with a gun is part of his plan, too.

“Are you worried about the police being armed with military weapons?” Ellison asked.

“I am,” he said. “The world we live in is a scary world, where the police who used to dress in short-sleeved shirts and carry a revolver now have long rifles with scopes and bulletproof vests and armored vehicles.” 

“And quite frankly that scares me much more than a homeless person trying to defend themselves with a shotgun,” Ellison told the Guardian.

Essential oils could pose danger to pets, experts say

Experts say that essential oils could make pets sick, or worse.

If pet owners are using an oil diffuser in their home or putting essential oils on their pet, experts say they should make sure the oil is either diluted or of a low concentration, according to WSOC.

“Animals can have allergic reactions just like people could to any scent that is out there, or they could have GI upset that could cause stomach ulcers, vomiting, diarrhea,” Dr. Angele Bice, with the Charleston Animal Society, said.

According to the website for Veterinary Centers of America Hospitals, some symptoms of essential oil  poisoning in a dog include difficulty breathing, difficulty walking, drooling, lethargy, muscle tremors, pawing at the face, redness or burns on the skin, lips, gums or tongue and fragrance on a pet’s coat, skin or in their vomit. The same symptoms may also appear in a cat.

If the oil is ingested, a pet may have diarrhea and vomiting.

Experts said that people should make sure pets have a way out of rooms in order to avoid the oils.

Startup offering to preserve brain with '100 percent fatal' procedure for $10,000

Need a way to hold on to your memories forever? One startup is offering a special, but fatal, procedure to help you keep your brain active.

>> Read more trending news

Researchers at Nectome, a medical company founded by MIT graduates, have discovered a way to maintain brain functionality after death with high-tech embalming, a process used to prevent a body from decay. 

“Our mission is to preserve your brain well enough to keep all its memories intact: from that great chapter of your favorite book to the feeling of cold winter air, baking an apple pie, or having dinner with your friends and family,” co-founders Robert McIntyre and Michael McCanna wrote on the business’ website.

>> On If you don’t get enough sleep, your brain could start eating itself

They will target patients suffering from terminal illnesses. The individuals will be sedated, connected to heart and lung machines, and injected with the embalming chemicals while they are alive.

The procedure is “100 percent fatal,” the founders warned, but the solution “can keep a body intact for hundreds of years, maybe thousands, as a statue of frozen glass.”

The analysts believe their investigations will help future scientists “recreate consciousness” and retrieve information from the brain’s molecular details.

“You can think of what we do as a fancy form of embalming that preserves not just the outer details but the inner details,” McIntyre told MIT Technology Review.

“If the brain is dead, it’s like your computer is off, but that doesn’t mean the information isn’t there,” added Ken Hayworth, a neuroscientist and president of the Brain Preservation Foundation -- the organization that awarded McIntyre for his recent work on preserving the pig brain.

The surgery is not yet available to the public as they are still unsure if the memories will be found in the dead tissues. However, they are inviting prospective customers to join a wait list for a $10,000 deposit, which is fully refundable. So far, 25 people have signed up. 

“When a generation of people die, we lose all their collective wisdom. You can transmit knowledge to the next generation, but it’s harder to transmit wisdom, which is learned,” McIntyre said. “That was fine for a while, but we get more powerful every generation. The sheer immense potential of what we can do increases, but the wisdom does not.”

Russia investigation: Special counsel Mueller subpoenas Trump Organization


Special counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed the Trump Organization for documents as part of his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and its possible ties to President Donald Trump and his associates, according to multiple reports.

>> Read more trending news

The subpoena is the first directly connected to one of Trump’s businesses, The New York Times reported Thursday. The newspaper was the first to report on the subpoena, citing two unidentified sources briefed on the situation.

The breadth of the subpoena was not immediately clear, although some documents sought were related to Russia, the Times reported. According to the newspaper, the subpoena was served “in recent weeks.”

>> More on Robert Mueller's investigation

The Trump Organization has already provided investigators with a range of documents, most focused on the period between when Trump announced his candidacy for president, in June 2015, to his inauguration, in January 2017, CNN reported in January. Citing an unidentified source familiar with the situation, the news network reported that the recently issued subpoena was meant “to ‘clean up’ and to ensure that all related documents are handed over to the special counsel.”

In a statement released to several news outlets Thursday, Alan Futerfas, an attorney representing the Trump Organization, said reports of the subpoena were “old news.”

“Since July 2017, we have advised the public that the Trump Organization is fully cooperative with all investigations, including the special counsel, and is responding to their requests,” Futerfas said. “This is old news and our assistance and cooperation with the various investigations remains the same today.”

The decision to subpoena the Trump Organization, which is owned by the president and managed by his children, appeared to mirror the strategy employed by Mueller with the Trump campaign, The Wall Street Journal reported. The newspaper noted that the campaign “voluntarily gave documents to the special counsel for months before receiving a subpoena in October.”

Mueller, who headed the FBI from 2001 to 2013, was appointed by the Justice Department in May 2017 to oversee the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. His investigation has thus far led to several indictments and a handful of guilty pleas from people connected to Trump.

Mueller indicted 13 Russians and three Russian entities last month on accusations that they interfered with American elections and political processes, starting in 2014. On Twitter, Trump claimed that information in the indictments proved his innocence on allegations of colluding with Russia to win the election.

Five people have pleaded guilty to charges levied against them in Mueller's investigation. Most recently, former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates pleaded guilty to making false statements and conspiring against the United States.

She thought her professional gamer boyfriend was cheating so she bought samurai sword, police say

A Washington state man is lucky it wasn’t a final game over. 

Professional gamer Alex Lovell’s girlfriend said she thought he was cheating on her after she found the dating app Tinder on his phone. She said she also found a woman’s red hair in their shower drain. Emily Javier, the girlfriend in question, had hair dyed green, The Washington Post reported.

With the alleged evidence against Lovell, Javier told police she did what she thought was the answer: She went to the mall and bought a samurai sword.

“I thought, I was gonna stab him while he was sleeping,” The Post reported Javier telling police.

But instead of stabbing him, she told police she reached for her sword on March 3, which she had taped to their shared bed along with two knives, and started cutting Lovell over and over as he slept.

He said he woke up and his lifetime of watching kung fu movies, along with martial arts training, helped him stop the attack, Oregon Live reported.

“I told her I loved her, and she was killing me. She needed to call police, or I was going to die,” Lovell told Oregon Live.

Police said she called 911 and told them that she had stabbed her boyfriend and that they needed to hurry because she thought he was dead. When emergency responders arrived, they found Lovell in a ball lying in a blood-spattered room, Oregon Live reported.

The professional gamer had nearly lost his index, middle and ring fingers, but doctors were able to reattach them, Oregon Live reported.

Lovell told the The Columbian that he was not unfaithful to Javier, but he did spend a lot of time playing video games and training for the gaming competitions.

“I  barely had time to hang out with my girlfriend, let alone another girl,” he told the Vancouver, Washington, newspaper.

Javier is charged with attempted murder and was taken to the Clark County Jail on $350,000 bail. She’s scheduled to stand trial in May, Oregon Live reported.

Small Texas town buys $4 million luxury mansion, but deal backfires. Now what, officials ask? 

The 8,000-square-foot mansion perches on a cliff overlooking Lake Travis about 20 miles outside of Austin, Texas. It has a wine cellar in the basement, a billiards table in the game room and red leather reclining loungers in the home theater. Greek statuary guards two turquoise negative-edge swimming pools. There is a helipad nearby.

The estate rents for as much as $2,000 a day. “First, you arrive at the private gate to realize how tranquil the location is. Then, you pull up to the circular driveway and see the magnificence of the home,” a delighted client wrote in a recent review. “It is hard to believe that this is an actual vacation rental! We each had our own private bathroom, which was extremely nice.”

“The views are better than any others you will find on the lake,” said Lago Vista City Councilman Kevin Sullivan.

He would know. That’s because the taxpayers of Lago Vista are the mansion’s reluctant owners.

Three years ago, this picturesque lakeside city of 7,000 shelled out nearly $4 million — a figure representing more than half of its annual budget — to buy the sprawling villa. After a couple of years of failing to unload it, the city has turned to using it for the occasional city council retreat and, more recently, renting it out to tourists.

“People love it,” said Jacqueline Wittmuss, owner of JW Properties, which manages the rental for the city.

Not everyone. Paying top dollar with public money to acquire a manor featuring 20-foot ceilings, a giant pantry and a three-oven kitchen “was not the wisest decision,” said Mark Tippetts, a former city councilman.

“It’s not the best situation,” added Ed Tidwell, Lago Vista’s new mayor.

“This was an intentional act," CHP Lt. Chuck Geletko told KABC. "Even though the person or persons who threw the boulder may not have known who was inside the vehicle at the time, any prudent person would know that a boulder that size would seriously harm someone driving on the freeway below.”

GoFundMe account was started to help the family with funeral expenses. 

"If anybody saw anything, please help us find whoever did this to him," Gutierrez told KABC. "He didn't deserve this. My daughter didn't deserve this."
