For some, good weed and good wine are all they are looking for in life, and thanks to the fine folks at Rebel Coast Winery, they can now get both in one simple package. Starting January 2018. the company will start selling the very first legal "Weed Wine.'
The wine, which is non-alcoholic, is described as tasting like a traditional California Sauvignon Blanc from Sonoma with high acid, citrus notes, and a crisp finish. It’s herbaceous marijuana on the nose, Sauvignon Blanc in the mouth. There are around 16 milligrams of THC in every bottle, which breaks down to around 4 milligrams per glass—6 milligrams less than the California limit of THC in edibles.
The new Sauvignon Blanc could be the first explicitly legal weed wine when it’s released in January 2018. Prop 64 in California legalized recreational adult use starting in 2018, but it also outlaws anyone from selling marijuana in the same place as tobacco or alcohol—including alcoholic marijuana wine. Since Rebel Coast’s Sauvignon Blanc is alcohol-free and it follows all the state laws. It won’t be the last offering, either. Paste reports that a rosé and sparkling are on the way next year.
Each bottle of Sauvignon Blanc is adorned with a tangerine-colored label with a marijuana leaf drawing and clean lettering. It’ll sell for $60 a bottle at recreational marijuana shops as soon as those shops are set up in the Golden State, and Rebel Coast is working on figuring out distribution to other states.

Everyday we as people wake up and go about our day, but in some cases, others wake up in fear or don’t even wake up at all. Bullying is a great factor of many deaths, and we need to recognize the signs.
Bullying can be physical, mental, and emotional. No one truly knows how bullying can really affect a person’s life or actions. Bullying typically starts off in the early stages of childhood. One in three schoolchildren experience some level of bullying between grades six and 10. In some cases, it starts in earlier grades like first and second.
Eighty-three percent of girls experience some form of harassment, while 79% of boys experience the same form of harassment. Bullying can occur anywhere! Six out 10 kids witness harassment in school at least once a day.
Outside of school, many teens deal with cyber bullies. Cyber bullies target their victims over the internet especially on social media outlets. These outlets give them the chance to stay behind the scenes and portray anyone they want to be. In fact, around 160,000 children miss large amounts of school each day because of bullies.
Suicide is the leading death after being bullied. Bullies can be stopped. Speaking up for someone can and will make a difference. Don’t be afraid to stop or just talk to a person who is a victim. Victims shouldn’t be afraid to speak out because you are never alone.
Doing these little things might just change or save a life. Stand up for bullying. No more R.I.Ps.
Subaru has unveiled its largest vehicle ever at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The Ascent is a family-sized SUV that stretches the Subaru Global Platform to its limits to create enough space for three rows of seating. Retaining much of the look of the Ascent Concept that debuted at the New York Auto Show in April, the production Ascent comes with an all-new engine and Subaru's tried and true Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.
For Subaru, the Ascent is a clear move to fill a gap they've often lost repeat customers to. Once a family outgrows the Outback or Forester, they have no other Subaru to turn to and must look elsewhere to get that third row of seating. With the Subaru Ascent, the company hopes to keep those buyers inside a car with the star cluster logo on the hood.

Major news broke this morning (Nov. 3) from BMW AG and it is not good for the company. The Germany-based car company is recalling 1 million vehicles in North America. The recall is due to two separate issues that cause five risks. While the recall is strictly for North America, they may extend the recall to other regions in the future.
The first of the recalls cover 670,000 BMW 3-Series vehicles sold in the U.S. for model years 2006-2011. These vehicles may have a wiring issue in the heating and air conditioning system. This issue can cause the vehicles to overheat which raise the risk of the car catching fire.
The second recall covers 740,000 BMWs sold in the US for model years 2007-2011. These vehicles have a valve heater that could rust and lead to a fire in rare cases. The recall includes some 128i vehicles, 3-Series, 5-Series and X3, X5 and Z4 vehicles.
BMW said both recalls followed recent meetings with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The 2018 Jeep Wrangler is set to debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 29th, but the folks at Autoblog.com have given us a sneak peek at what we can expect. Jeep has released a trio of photos showing off the new off-roader in both two- and four-door configurations, and they look good.
There are no engine, transmission, or other specifications yet. Those will all come at the aforementioned reveal in LA. However, we expect it to be initially offered with a V6 with either manual or automatic transmissions, followed by a turbocharged four-cylinder with just an automatic.
When groups come together to do good they often produce great results, this is definitely the case when it comes to this new limited edition Nike Air Force 1. Socially conscious non-profit Global Citizen Festival has joined forces with M5 Showroom to launch the limited-edition "Freedom And Justice For All" Nike Air Force 1, set for a release at this year’s ComplexCon.
Only 10 pairs of the limited-edition sneakers will be on stock, which features a laser map of the world engraved on each shoe. All the proceeds will go to the festival’s initiative to end extreme world property by 2030. Additionally, M5 will also be selling Pintrill pins, M5 New Era caps and Master Dynamic headphones. The profit made on those items will also go to the cause.
ComplexCon’s activation booth will also include a “For Freedom. For Justice. For All,” section, which will provide attendees with information on the initiative. The event will take place on November 4 and 5 in Long Beach, California.
After a suggestion made by a member of Lego's Ideas fan-sourced creation platform, the company famous for building blocks and elaborate play-sets, Lego, is launching an official Women of NASA set.
The Lego set was originally proposed by MIT News deputy editor Maia Weinstock on the Ideas platform last year, and quickly made its way to the 10,000 mark needed for official project approval by Lego.
Weinstock had suggested that the set include computer scientist Margaret Hamilton, who developed onboard software for the Apollo missions while working at NASA during the 60s; Katherine Johnson, who calculated and verified launch and landing trajectories for Mercury and Apollo programs (and who was depicted in the film Hidden Figures); Sally Ride, the first American woman in space; Nancy Grace Roman, who helped plan and create the Hubble Space Telescope and NASA's astronomy research program; and Mae Jamison, the first African-American woman in space.
The final kit includes all but Katherine Johnson, which Lego says is only because it requires approval from all involved, and apparently, there was some hiccup in gaining approval from Johnson and her family at this time.
The set was designed by Lego's Gemma Anderson and Marie Sertillanges, and sticks close to Weinstein's original vision. Anderson and Sertillanges went to great lengths to capture specific details in the Lego recreations of these space icons, including how Sally Ride's name tag says just "Sally," which is in keeping with a request she actually made in real life.
Again, the Women of NASA set is on sale starting November 1 and will retail for $24.99.

As if air travel is difficult enough at times, residents in nine states will start to find it harder to get on a plane come January if their local government does't act soon. People who live in Kentucky, Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Washington will need a second form of id to broad a plane starting January 22, 2018.
Because of the REAL ID Act of 2005, states are required to meet the federal governments minimum ID requirements to be able to use the state ID for things such as air travel. So far, those nine states have yet to improve their IDs to that level so residents will need a more secure ID to fly.
The forms of ID that would be accepted along with the state ID or a valid US Passport, a current military ID, or a valid permanent resident cards (green card).
Forbes reports that some states are in the process of updating their ID situations before January 22, so you may not need a passport to fly. It would be wise to check with your local government for updates. It also looks like even more states will fall under the TSA's flight restricted category by 2020, as ID standards will be higher then.
In any case, it takes four to six weeks to get a passport request processed, so it wouldn't hurt to start planning ahead now.
