The US supreme court has given the go ahead for a fourth execution to be carried out in Arkansas within one week, bringing a bloody end to the state’s controversial attempt to run a “conveyor belt of death” in an aggressive burst of killings unseen in the US for more than half a century.

|Now you can eat a BBQ-flavored PayDay, because America - |
Americans have always loved candy bars. Now, candy bars will be loving America right back. The Hershey Company has announced that it will be rolling out special editions of their most popular candy — Kit Kat, Reese's, Hershey's Kisses, and PayDay just to name a few — nationally under the theme "Taste of America." The collection of candy has new flavors "inspired by the unique tastes of iconic, U.S. summer destinations," states the official press release. Six states will be honored with the Hershey's treatment: California, Georgia, New York, Hawaii, Texas, and Florida. And what exactly will the flavors be?

Georgia gets a honey-roasted peanut butter Reese's, which Hershey's insists will have "a hint of floral, amber, and molasses." We guess peach doesn't mix too well with peanut butter and chocolate. New York will be captured in a cherry cheesecake version of Hershey's regular chocolate bar, while Hawaii gets coconut-almond-flavored Hershey's Kisses. Image: the hershey company Image: the hershey company Alligator-laden Florida is lucky enough to be represented by two different fruity Twizzler flavors: key lime pie and orange cream pop. And that brings us to the last state in Hershey's tour of what represents America — Texas. Image: the hershey companyThanks to Texas and the Hershey Company's ingenuity, BBQ-flavored PayDays will exist in this world. The press release says these candy bars "combine the tang of bold BBQ-seasoned peanuts surrounding a chewy caramel center for a unique, Texas-inspired flavor." To each their own, we suppose, but honestly no thank you. This is one taste of America we very much could do without. If you are interested in eating your way through America via candy, these limited-time candy bars are available now. WATCH: This machine knows how to sort your Skittles by color
|First-ever photos of Apple’s self-driving test car surface online - |
After many months shrouded in secrecy, concrete information regarding Apple's plans in the automotive space are finally starting to leak out. While Apple's initial plans may have centered on developing and manufacturing an Apple-branded car from scratch, Apple in recent months is said to have narrowed the scope of Project Titan to focus more on autonomous vehicle technology.
Far from idle speculation, Apple earlier this month applied for and received a permit to test driverless cars in the state of California. And a few months before that, Apple penned a letter to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) indicating that it is "investing heavily in the study of machine learning and automation" and that they are "excited about the potential of automated systems in many areas, including transportation."
More recently, details from Apple's permit application to the California DMV emerged and revealed that Apple outfitted three Lexus vehicles with self-driving software and hardware.
Earlier this afternoon, Bloomberg obtained photos of the Lexus vehicles Apple has outfitted with a wide array of sensors.
Two such photos are featured below.
And below is a shot of the cars from the back.
