    SOMETIMES store-bought cake needs some TLC before it can look as good as it tastes. One self-proclaimed icing expert was stunned when her $20 grocery store cake transformed into a Fall-themed wedding cake worth $500 with just some elbow grease. 3Laurie is nicknamed The Icing ArtistCredit: Youtube/The Icing Artist 3Laurie used a chocolate salted caramel filling for half of the cakeCredit: Youtube/The Icing Artist YouTuber Laurie Shannon, nicknamed The Icing Artist, set out on the "cakeover" to turn a sheet cake into a round, tiered cake and was surprised by how much she loved the results. After taking all of the buttercream frosting off of the original cake, Laurie worked to cut circular shapes out of the rectangular one. She then removed orange and yellow frosting from another grocery store cake to go along with the Fall theme that she envisioned for her wedding cake. Laurie pressed and pieced misshapen chunks of the chocolate sheet cake until they formed smaller circular levels that she could use as tiers of her wedding cake.

Meanwhile, Abbott Laboratories announced it will import baby formula from its Spanish facilities this month to boost supplies of its product in the United States.Weeks into the crisis over the infant formula shortage, it seems as if emergency measures to make up the shortfall are announced with regularity.

    A shocking clip shows the moment a Houston Family Dollar employee killed a shoplifter, firing six shots into his back as he fled the store with stolen motor oil.  Antonio Batres, 21, faces murder charges after he emptied the clip of his Glock 9mm pistol into 49-year-old Troy Odom around 4.30 pm on April 17 as dumbstruck shoppers looked on.   In video shot by a shopper, two store employees can be seen confronting the Odom - one of the men can be heard shouting unintelligibly. Bottles of motor oil can be seen strewn across the ground.  'He had that all in his pants,' says the woman filming the video. 'He had a lot of fuel.' 'He need to chill out,' the woman says as the shoplifter leaves the store, the two employees following him.  Batres can be seen aiming, taking a wide stance and firing. Odom collapses out of view, and can be heard shrieking as six shots ring out.  'Further investigation determined the victim had his back toward Batres, who then pulled out a pistol and shot the victim...

    Sherri Papini hid out at the apartment belonging to her former fiancé who she had known since she was 13, DailyMail.com can reveal. Papini, 39, was arrested last Thursday, accused of faking her kidnapping in 2016 with James Reyes, 37, a man she has a 'long history' with, according to the indictment. Reyes told police that Papini contacted him 'out of the blue' in 2015 and told her she 'planned to run away with him'. She stayed at his home in Costa Mesa, California, for 22 days while police in her hometown of Redding, California, and the FBI conducted a frantic search for her. Papini reappeared battered and bruised three weeks later and told police she had been kidnapped by two Hispanic women. Now prosecutors claim the whole thing was a sham and that she branded and starved herself. Shasta County Sheriff Michael Johnson said on Monday others would likely face charges and slammed Papini as a 'selfish narcissist'   Papini has been accused of making false statements and mail fraud and she is facing up to 20 years in...

    Left-leaning news outlets ignored the lengthy criminal history of Brianna Kupfer's alleged killer in their coverage - and even omitted his mugshot from their homepages.  Reports by liberal giants - including the Los Angeles Times, ABC News and CNN - inexplicably left out details about Shawn Laval Smith's violent past. A picture of his face was also left off online landing pages after cops released his mugshots in hopes the public might help find him. The LA Times in its article made no mention of Smith's previous arrests, or the fact he was free during the stabbing on a $1,000 bond related to a Los Angeles County misdemeanor in October 2020.   Smith is also free on a $50,000 bond in Charleston, South Carolina related to a November 2019 arrest on suspicion of firing a weapon into an occupied vehicle, court records show. An indictment in that case was handed down on March 16, 2020, just before COVID-19 paralyzed the courts, and the docket shows no further action on the case. Kupfer, 24, was killed last Thursday during a solo shift at the...
    Pedestrians view the holiday windows at a store in New York, on Thursday, Dec. 2, 2021.Christopher Occhicone | Bloomberg | Getty Images With Christmas fast-approaching, retailers are gearing up for a last-minute rush of shoppers. Stores and retail websites are expected to draw more than 148 million shoppers on Saturday, according to an annual survey by the National Retail Federation and Prosper Insights & Analytics. That's a slight drop from the final Saturday before Christmas last year, a day known as Super Saturday in the industry. Last year, 150 million consumers were expected to turn out, which was higher than the estimated 147 million shoppers in 2019. This year, however, that final sprint will be shaped by new and conflicting factors. A strong wave of early holiday shopping means some consumers may have less to buy. Warmer weather in much of the country could make people feel more comfortable driving to the mall or make them feel less in the holiday spirit. And a surge in Covid-19 cases in the Northeast and Midwest could cause gatherings to be canceled or...
    A five-year-old boy in Ontario, Canada, hijacked his parents' car and crashed it after taking it out for a spin to drive to the store to get a new Christmas toy for his sister.  The Ontario Provincial Police in Central Frontenac received a call at 7.20a.m. on Monday from a neighbor, who reported the family car's whereabouts in a hayfield nearby.  When police officers approached the vehicle, they found the boy behind the wheel. He told them that he wanted to go to a store and buy a pink toy tractor for his little sister.  'The parents were already there and so was the neighbor,' said Frontenac OPP Media Relations Officer Const. Richard Martin. 'What had happened is that the neighbor had seen these lights in his hay field, and called the OPP. Then he went to investigate and met his neighbors.'  The child did not suffer any injuries from the crash and the car only sustained minor damage. Police confirmed the parents are not facing any charges.  The distance travelled by the car while it was driven by the...

    Before it all came crashing down, Archi Duenas’ gun-stealing scheme was relatively simple, county prosecutors wrote in a memo. He just couldn’t go on vacation. Duenas, manager of the gun store at the Los Angeles Police Academy, had been reprimanded over the years for tardiness and sloppy record keeping, but he never took time off, according to the memo. As the store’s closing supervisor, he was there each night to lock up — and hand count the inventory. If someone else had been assigned that count, they might have discovered that dozens of guns were missing and that Duenas was stealing them and selling them for cash, prosecutors wrote in the memo. But since he was always there, the Los Angeles Police Revolver and Athletic Club was apparently none the wiser. This went on for years, prosecutors wrote, facilitated by a lack of oversight and safety protocols that are considered standard in other gun stores. Then, in February 2020, Duenas’ bosses told him he had accrued the “maximum allowable leave hours” and had to take time off, prosecutors wrote in...
    An New York City literary couple have enchanted readers with their love story, which began in their 80s with movie nights, dinner dates, and walks in the park.  Phyllis Raphael, an 86-year-old writer, and Stan Leff, an 89-year-old retired bookseller, were both twice-married and widowed when they ran into each other at a Manhattan grocery store in 2015. Though Phyllis couldn't recall Stan, he remembered her — the pair had run in the same circles and met at a party way back in 1974. Phyllis, who clearly left an impression, told the New York Times that now the feeling is mutual: 'I’m crazy about him.'

    New York (CNN Business)The original Barneys department store in New York City is going to be a ghost town -- literally. The retail space, which was home to the luxury department store for almost a century, is transforming into a Spirit Halloween store.Spirit Halloween stores pop up around the country every year ahead of the fall holiday. For the most part, they inhabit the corpses of out-of-business stores. But this opening feels particularly spooky. Barneys opened in 1923 and was an icon of America's luxury clothing world for decades. But the department store filed for bankruptcy in 2019 and officially shut its doors in 2020. In 2020 alone, Lord & Taylor went out of business, Neiman Marcus filed for bankruptcy.

Spirit Halloween has more than 1,400 stores across the United States, making...
    LOGAN SQUARE — When a former greenhouse worker and a crafter met earlier this summer, both were brainstorming how to expand their businesses. Now, they’ve combined their dreams into one shop, opening Terracotto Plants and Pixie & The Boy inside a long-vacant storefront at 3056 W. Diversey Ave. Cotto, who goes by one name, is behind the Terracotto Plants part of the operation, which is devoted to house plants and other gifts. Trish Carnevale is the accessories and housewares maker behind Pixie & The Boy. The grand opening of the blended store is Saturday. “I took up nihilism, and I decided life is too short to not do what you love,” Cotto said. A banner reading, “No risk, no magic,” is a nod to the leap the owners took to open the Logan Square store. The two were strangers a couple of months ago; now, they’re running a brick-and-mortar business together. “When you walk through those doors, you’re going to feel happier,” Carnevale said. “Everything is colorful and green and bright. We want the neighborhood … to experience it and...
    Storing energy is one of the great challenges of tomorrow and an experiment with concrete could solve the great energy crisis posed by the increasing demand for electricity. Solar energy is one of the great assets we have against climate change, since it allows us to draw clean energy continuously for about 12 hours a day, with practically no maintenance costs. All you need is land and sun. The problem comes in that this energy is very difficult to store, or rather very expensive to store. When the sun goes over the horizon, all solar farms are no longer useful for this reason, and if the energy produced during the day has not been used, it has been wasted, since solar farms do not have batteries to store surpluses energetic. Fortunately, technology is advancing in all directions and the invention that we are now going to talk about could solve the current great problem, which is not of clean energy production, and in 2021 we are doing very well, but of saving that energy for the moments when the air...
    A Florida gas station clerk who intervened in the alleged kidnapping of a woman on Mother's Day while working a weekend shift said all she could think of at the time was to "get her safe into the store with me." Rachel Craddock told FOX Tampa Bay that she was working on Sunday afternoon when a man accused of beating and forcing a woman inside a vehicle stopped at the Citgo gas station in Inverness, located 76 miles north of Tampa. The man, identified by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office as Cody Jackson, struck the woman inside a home in Seffner with a piece of wood to the head.  He then forced her into a car and drove away, authorities said. At one point he stopped and tied her ankles and wrists with extension cords, authorities said. He then drove to the gas station.  When he went inside, the woman broke free from the restraints and ran toward a side door in the gas station.  "He seen [sic] the woman that he had bound in the car escape from the...
    For years, tech companies like Facebook and Amazon have faced the brunt of antitrust criticism by Congress, and Apple has gotten far fewer questions. But that changed on Wednesday, when Congress finally sunk its teeth into Apple as part of a hearing titled “Antitrust Applied: Examining Competition in App Stores.” The hearing brought in representatives from companies like Spotify, Tile, and Match Group, a dating app company, to explain how Apple’s App Store fees and walled-garden business strategy harms their companies. All three companies gave harsh testimony, accusing the iPhone-maker of anti-competitive behavior over the burdensome fees it charges some app developers on its App Store. “If Apple turned on us, it can turn on anyone.” The timing couldn’t be worse for Apple, coming just a day after the company announced an iPhone-linked item tracker called the AirTag in direct competition with Tile. Speaking to Congress, Tile’s General Counsel Kirsten Daru said that once Apple decided to develop its own item-tracking devices and services in 2019, the two companies’ friendly relationship dissolved. “If Apple turned on us, it can...
    Apple is allowing Parler, the social networking site popular with conservatives and members of the far right, back in the App Store, according to a letter the company sent to Republican lawmakers on Monday.  In the letter to Congressman Ken Buck of Colorado and Senator Mike Lee of Utah, Apple said it "engaged in substantial conversations with Parler" since removing the platform from the App Store for violating compliance guidelines and lacking proper content moderation policies in January. "As a result of those conversations, Parler has proposed updates to its app and the app's content moderation practices," Apple said in the letter, adding that it anticipates the updated app will become available as soon as Parler releases it. Apple declined to comment for this story and Parler did not immediately respond to a request for comment from CBS News. In the days leading up to the U.S. Capitol riot, supporters of former President Trump and members of far right groups like the Proud Boys and the Oath Keepers used Parler to call for violence on January 6 and organized plans...
    Google is killing off its dedicated Google Wifi app for managing its routers, rolling that functionality over to the Google Home app as the company continues to “help our customers control and manage all their connected products in one place and enable routines across them.” The switchover to the Google Home app will come in two phases: first, Google will disable most of the functionality of the Google Wifi app on May 25th. Starting then, users will only be able to view the current status of their networks — but any changes, including adding new routers or access points — will have to be done in the Google Home app. Starting on May 25th, users will have to use the Home app to make any changes to a Google Wifi setup Then, sometime in June, Google will remove the Wifi app from the Play Store and iOS App Store, funneling all users to exclusively use the Google Home app. (It’ll also stop supporting the old app at that time for existing users, too.) Google points out that migrating existing Wifi...
    At least they weren't murder hornets. After what should have been a routine grocery trip on a leisurely Sunday afternoon, a New Mexico man was shocked to return to his car and find some unexpected visitors waiting for him: thousands of bees in his back seat.  Earlier this week, the man, whose name has not been released, left Albertson's grocery store in Las Cruces and placed his groceries in his vehicle. He had left his windows open while food shopping, officials said.  It wasn't until he started to drive off that he noticed the thousands of bees taking the trip with him. The Las Cruces Fire Department was soon on the scene, blocking off the surrounding area to protect nearby shoppers from the bees. Firefighter Jesse Johnson used his experience as a beekeeper, which he does in his spare time, to safely relocate the swarm.  Bee Swarm that Invaded Parked Car is Safely Relocated by Off-duty Firefighter An off-duty Las Cruces firefighter used...Posted by Las Cruces Fire Department on Monday, March 29, 2021 Johnson, who was off duty at the time,...

    (CNN)A little more than seven months ago, I stood in a line at my local Vons supermarket with a rack of frozen ribs and a frozen turkey in my cart. I've never cooked ribs before and the calendar was closer to Valentine's Day than Thanksgiving, but I didn't know when I'd get another opportunity to buy some meat. The phrase "global pandemic" had just been thrown around in the news the day before and even though I'd been prepping supplies and canned goods since the month prior, I decided that morning that our household could use a fresh round of the basics so we could hunker down for a couple of weeks. Everyone in West Los Angeles apparently had the same idea. I'll remember that morning for the rest of my life because walking into a crowded grocery store with mostly bare shelves was something I had been privileged enough to not have experienced before. Though, there had been a time when I wanted nothing more than to run through a grocery store, clearing shelves as I went along. I...
    A California woman has been caught on camera calling 911 after she was denied entry to a pet store because she refused to wear a face mask.  Bones-N-Scones employee Aidan Bearpaw recorded his encounter with the woman, identified only as Laura, after she arrived at the Palm Springs store shortly before close last Sunday.  The six minute video begins with Laura saying she is being 'discriminated against' as Aidan stands at the door and offers her a cloth mask.  'I cant, I'll have a panic attack, I'll freak out, I'll have an anxiety attack. I know what I want. I'm here at the end [of the day], no one is in the store,' Laura states.  'I don't want to call 911 on you, but I will.' A woman has been caught on camera calling 911 after she was refused entry into a Palm Springs pet store because she wouldn't wear a face mask Aidan still refuses to let Laura inside the Bones-N-Scones outlet, prompting her to make good on her promise to phone the police.  '911, what is...
    Postal worker charged after nearly 2,000 pieces of mail, including ballots, found in trash Shoppers visits to Whole Foods are rebounding far slower than at other grocers, and the company blames its vanishing lunchtime business Jeff Bezos: Amazon turned into the everything store thanks to an email to 1,000 random people With Amazon's massive success today, it's hard to imagine that Jeff Bezos started it in 1994 as an online bookseller — in a small garage where employees' desks were made out of doors from Home Depot. © Provided by CNBC Jeff Bezos Now, there's almost nothing you can't buy on Amazon, which begs the question: How did it become "the everything store"? Load Error 'We can sell anything'In 1997, after Amazon made enormous strides into selling CDs and DVDs, Bezos wanted to see how else he could expand his online storefront. "I emailed 1,000 randomly selected customers and asked them, 'Besides the things we sell today, what would you like to see us sell?'" Bezos said in a 2018 interview at the Economic Club of Washington. The responses were...

A single session can be completed in around half an hour, while more dedicated players can push further and try to challenge themselves with longer runs.

    Shoppers walk through the King of Prussia mall in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania.Jennah Moon | Bloomberg | Getty Images As consumer shopping habits change, America's shopping malls have annointed many saviors: food halls, movie theaters, gyms. Grocery stores could be next on the list.  Simon Property Group, the largest mall owner in the U.S., hinted at the idea on an earnings call Monday evening. The comments came on the heels of a report that said Amazon was in talks with Simon to open warehouses at some of its shuttered Sears and J.C. Penney locations. CEO David Simon did not comment on the report Monday. Amazon also previously declined to comment.  One analyst thinks that instead of opening logistics hubs at Simon malls, Amazon might be looking to open more of its own grocery stores there — which could end up working out better for both parties.  "We understand that Amazon is reportedly looking for grocery deals in the Boston market, and grocery offerings at A-rated malls, similar to Europe and Asia, would provide essential retail use and boost shopper traffic, in our opinion," Compass...

    New York (CNN Business)Walmart and other major retailers made headlines last week with a new requirement for customers to wear masks in its US stores. But the new rules only go so far. Walmart (WMT), Home Depot (HD), Lowe's (LOW), Walgreens (WBA), CVS (CVS) and others say they still won't prohibit customers who refuse to wear a mask from shopping in stores. The issue, they say, is they want to avoid confrontations between angry customers and employees. Retailers and their employees are finding themselves playing the uncomfortable role of mask police. The increase in coronavirus cases is prompting concern over how to protect both customers and workers in crowded stores from infecting each other. There is no federal mandate to wear a mask, and many state and local governments have not required wearing one. This has forced retailers to navigate a patchwork system and left them in the position of having to create their own policies. Retailers are canceling coronavirus hazard pay. Thats a mistake"Many retailers feel like they have to act since some governors haven't," said Melissa Murdock, spokesperson...
