Just in case you were in need of a bottle opener or a wood saw and the only thing you had was your phone, there's a phone case for that. The new TaskOne iPhone case comes with 22 tools--including pliers, wire cutters, screwdrivers and more.

Earlier this week, officials at an elementary school in Utah took away the lunches of as many as 40 students and threw them in the trash because their parents were behind on their school-lunch payments, prompting an outcry in the community and nationwide. Officials had intended to withhold the meals from the start of the lunch period, but because they didn't learn which kids had overdue balances until after lunch was served, they ended up taking back those lunches, throwing them out and giving the kids milk and fruit instead. The school district has issued apologies online and says it's investigating the matter.
The first official poster for the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaptation has been released, with leading man Jamie Dornan taking center stage. In fact, co-star Dakota Johnson is not represented in the poster at all. In the image, Dornan, dressed in a suit, shows off his backside as he peers out a floor-to-ceiling office window at the Seattle skyline. A tagline above him reads, "Mr. Grey Will See You Now," while the bottom of the poster advertises the film's release date as "Valentine's Day 2015."
More than 24,000 children visit the ER annually due to shopping-cart related injuries. That averages out to 66 kids per day, or one ER visit every 22 minutes. Strangely, the problem has only gotten worse since voluntary shopping-cart safety standards took effect in 2004. Since then, the annual number of concussions tied to shopping carts in children younger than 15 jumped nearly 90 percent. More than 70 percent of injuries were caused by kids falling out of carts, followed by running into a cart or carts tipping over. The study's lead author called carts' current safety standards "not adequate."
