Wisconsin students' Rice Krispies treat a snap, crackle, colossus

Yahoo! National News - Mon, 04/13/2015 - 05:21
By Mary Reardon MADISON, Wis. (Reuters) - University of Wisconsin-Madison students said on Sunday they have completed a Rice Krispies cereal treat weighing more than 5-1/2 tons they hope will be entered into Guinness World Records. The colossus made by combining Rice Krispies cereal, marshmallows and butter was more than 1,000 pounds heavier than a 10,314 pound Rice Krispies treat made in California in 2010 that is recognized by Guinness World Records. The students had been aiming for a 15,000 pound dessert and manufacturers had donated 9,000 pounds of marshmallows, 5,500 pounds of Rice Krispies and 900 pounds of butter for the effort. Danny Lerner, one of the organizers, said Sunday he was pleased with the results after challenges posed by raw weather and warping in the wooden mold used to make the treat.

Founder and President of the National Action Network Al Sharpton speaks at the opening of National Action Network Convention in New York CityBy Randall Hill NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (Reuters) - Civil rights leader Reverend Al Sharpton on Sunday praised the mayor of a South Carolina town where a white patrolman was charged with murder after the fatal shooting of a black man and said other officers there should face charges. New York-based Sharpton said he hoped the prosecution of the officer, who shot Walter Scott in the back on April 4, would mark a turning point in the United States. "Rather than duck, the mayor stood up," Sharpton said of North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey, who attended Sunday's service at a local church where Sharpton spoke. Sharpton said it seemed providential that "way down in South Carolina, where we are still protesting the Confederate flag, that in the Deep South, a mayor and police chief did what we couldn’t get mayors in the North and the Midwest to do." Sharpton told the New York Times he would urge authorities to prosecute a black police officer, Clarence Habersham, who arrived on the scene just after Scott was fatally shot.

Striking Lyondell Houston refinery workers to weigh final offer

Yahoo! National News - Mon, 04/13/2015 - 02:25
More than 400 striking hourly workers represented by the United Steelworkers union (USW) at Lyondell Basell Industries' Houston refinery are scheduled to vote on the company's last, best and final offer on Monday and Tuesday, a local union official said on Sunday. "We were presented with a last, best and final offer yesterday evening," said Kent Farr, an official of USW local 13-227. Companies usually make a last, best and final offer in an attempt to bring negotiations to a close. Talks between the union and Lyondell have been focused on the company's proposal to curtail long-standing rules on overtime pay that allow a worker to receive several wage premiums when working extensive overtime hours.
