Coffee is that one thing that millions of Americans start their day with. It’s warm, inviting, and full of caffeine that offers a much-needed pick-me-up to get the day started. But, what’s really happening inside of your body when you drink that cup of joe? Are you drinking something that is beneficial to you long-term, or are you fueling your body with a harmful substance? With varying opinions on the topic, here’s what science has to say about it — the good and the not-so-good.

First, the benefits

1. Protection against different types of cancers

Several studies have been conducted to see if the carcinogenic properties in coffee are linked to the development of cancer — a link that researcher have been unable to find. However several studies, including some cited by the American Cancer Society have found that coffee could actually protect against many cancers.

The ACS website stated that “Coffee may lower the risk of several types of cancer, including head and neck, colorectal, breast, and liver cancer … Hundreds of biologically active compounds including caffeine, flavonoids, lignans, and other polyphenols are found in roasted coffee. These and other coffee compounds have been shown to increase energy expenditure, inhibit cellular damage, regulate genes involved in DNA repair, have anti-inflammatory properties and/or inhibit metastasis, among other activities.”

marshawn lynch dives in skittles pool

I’m pretty sure Marshawn Lynch loves Skittles more than I love anything on this earth

Aside from steamrolling people and hilariously pissing off the media, Marshawn Lynch really loves skittles. In fact, if you didn’t already know, Lynch devours a pack of skittles every time he scores a touchdown. It’s just something he has done since he was a kid playing.

Last night, Lynch appeared on Conan and got to take his love to the next level when he executed his signature “Grab my D!ck” dive into a pool of skittles.

So this got me thinking. What candy would I dive into?

Candy Orange slices of course. Yeah I know, I’m gross.

We all love our dads, but they’ve been known to do a silly thing or two.

Let’s explore all of the poorly planned, weird and heart-warming things dads have done.

Normally, people say, “hold my beer and watch this!” This dad didn’t even give up the beer first.

Some dads like to dance. Even fewer like to dance like this.

At least they’re having fun!

In Aberdeen, dads even twerk.

Some dads wait far too long to introduce their baby to her uncle — and daddy’s identical twin.

Dads occasionally underestimate their heft in the world.

Sometimes, dads fall asleep in public.

But their kids always make up for it.

No matter what, we love our dads. Happy Father’s Day!

AT&T first offered unlimited data plans in 2007, promising unlimited data use. Although AT&T stopped selling the plan to new customers, it continued to allow current unlimited users to continue to renew their plan.

Unfortunately for AT&T’s customers, the company sneaked in a new term contract putting in place a “Maximum Bit Rate” policy. This meant that although their plans might still say unlimited data, customers were getting capped data speeds after they had used a certain amount of data in a billing period. For the rest of the billing period, their data would be capped to a rate so slow it would be virtually unusable.

The FCC charged AT&T in violation of the Open Internet Transparency Rule for misleading customers about the true speed of their unlimited data plans. Said FCC Chairman Tom WHeeler, “Consumers deserve to get what they pay for. Broadband providers must be upfront and transparent about the services they provide. The FCC will not stand idly by while consumers are deceived by misleading marketing materials and insufficient disclosure.”

AT&T is currently due to face a $100 million fine for misleading customers and not being transparent about capping data plans. This will be a big victory for the thousands of AT&T customers who have filed complaints since 2011 for being locked into contracts, faced with early termination fees and served an unlimited data plan with painfully slow speeds.
