The Toronto Blue Jays got their name after holding a name-the-team contest during the Summer of 1976. Out of 4000 suggestions "Blue Jays" was chosen likely due to the connection with owner Labatt's Breweries "Labatt's Blue" brand of beer. Fans despised the new name right out of the gate, local politican Paul Godfrey even claimed the fans would never accept the name and would just refer to the club as the "Toronto Blues". The original logo was designed by Toronto-area graphic design company Savage Sloan, Ltd. and was unveiled to little-to-no fanfare in the Fall of '76. This core brand lasted unchanged until 1996 when a modernization was carried out by Major League Baseball for the 1997 season. Designed by Toronto designers Brandid, the new Blue Jays indignia removed any reference to the "Blue" from the team name, introducing black and graphite as the primary colours.
Many trademark infringement stories involve mammoth corporations picking on smaller, unrelated businesses, but this one's a bit different. A small chain of seafood restaurants in Florida has filed a $2 million lawsuit against Wendy's over the use of the phrase "You can't fake fresh." Pincher's Crab Shack, which has seven locations, says it has been using that slogan since 2004. So owners were surprised to see it — and other "You can't fake..." slogans — pop up in advertising campaigns for Wendy's. In the lawsuit, Pincher's Crab Shack asks the court to force Wendy's to stop using its slogan, along with monetary damages.
Caffeine and nicotine belong to the stimulant family of drugs. Both readily cross the blood brain barrier that separates the blood stream from the interior of the brain, and increase heart rate and speed up other bodily functions, and have the potential to cause overdose or be habit-forming. If you feel jittery, extra anxious or are having trouble sleeping after a few days, take a look at your caffeine consumption levels. As shown by the below study, nicotine doubles the rate at which the body depletes caffeine and some caffeine users may find that they cannot tolerate caffeine consumption at pre-quitting levels.
CHALLENGE #8: The word "pizza" first appeared in a Latin text from the southern Italy town of Gaeta, then still part of the Byzantine Empire, in 997 AD; the text states that a tenant of certain property is to give the bishop of Gaeta duodecim pizze ("twelve pizzas") every Christmas Day, and another twelve every Easter Sunday". Modern pizza was invented in Naples, Italy, and the dish and its variants have since become popular and common in many areas of the world. Pizza is sold fresh or frozen, either whole or in portions, and is a common fast food item in Europe and North America. Can you find this European pizzeria so I may join my date for lunch?
