If you’re a doting dog owner, odds are you occasionally give a special treat to your canine companion, but what about liquid refreshment?

Japanese town axes milk from school lunches, debate likely to wage until cows come home

I’ve lost count of the number of Japanese people I’ve met who were disappointed to find out I don’t have what they consider quintessential American eating habits. The last time I had a steak was a year ago. I’m perfectly happy eating rice, and I love fish, since, you know, I grew up in California, which is a coastal state (same ocean as Japan has, too).

But there’s one stereotype I do conform with, and that’s how much I love milk, despite being a full-grown adult. Many Japanese people, on the other hand, associate the drink with their childhood, since it’s been served in elementary schools for decades.

Milk: Good for Your Bones and… Car?

Car washes are all pretty standard, aren’t they? Sure, marketing theory (that’s a real thing, right?) necessitates some sort of diversity among competitors, but there’s not much you can do beyond lowering prices or having, um, eye-catching employees. Wax is wax, and high-pressure water is high-pressure water, right?

Well, one car wash owner in China has started using a more novel cleaning product: milk! Read More
