Cheese lovers, brace yourselves: ‚ÄúCheese can sack your health.‚ÄĚ
That‚Äôs the message on a billboard near Wisconsin‚Äôs Lambeau Field, home of the NFL‚Äôs Green Bay Packers. And yes, that is the same state that leads the United States in cheese production.
A nonprofit based in Washington, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, posted the anti-cheese billboard on Tuesday after conquering some legal issues.
The poster was initially going to depict the grim reaper wearing a cheesehead hat, with the words ‚ÄúWarning: Cheese can sack your health,‚ÄĚ to alert passersby who saw the billboard ‚Äď who would ideally be football fans, according to PCRM.org. However, Foamation¬†Inc., the company that manufactures cheesehead¬†hats, threatened a copyright lawsuit, forcing the organization to remove the cheesehead from its poster, according to the nonprofit‚Äôs website.
‚ÄúWe‚Äôre happy,‚ÄĚ Foamation‚Äôs office manager Denise Kaminski told ‚ÄúThe Chippewa Herald,‚ÄĚ a newspaper based in Wisconsin. ‚ÄúThe cheesehead is a fun thing, so we‚Äôre glad that has happened.‚ÄĚ
A wild elephant trampled a man to death in Mysore, India, Wednesday, creating panic in the city.
Four elephants bore through the city around 6 a.m., straying from the town of Tirumakudalu Narsipura, about 35 kilometers (21 miles) from Mysore, according to The Times of India. One elephant was seen trampling to death a 55-year-old security guard at a bank ATM. The elephant also attacked a cow in the market and a moving bus in the street.
‚ÄúThe forest guards and officials from the Mysore zoo were alerted,‚ÄĚ State Higher Education Minister S.A. Ramdas told the Times. ‚ÄúThey rushed to the spot to control the jumbos by tranquilizing them.‚ÄĚ
Two of the more destructive elephants were tranquilized, the Times reported, citing local officials. One barged into a women‚Äôs college compound and roamed the grounds while the other wreaked havoc in a residential area.
As a precaution, schools and colleges were closed for the day and extra police deployed.
