1.) What is the most visited business in the United States? The one that is under the golden arches. McDonald is the most visited by Americans 14 years of age and older. A new study done by Placed shows that 49% of people say they have visited a McDonalds. Walmart was second, receiving 38.8% of those surveyed with Subway a close 3rd at 37.8%. Burger King and Starbucks rounded out the top 5, being visited by 24% of those surveyed.
2.) Technology continues to influence, change and assist so much of what we do, including the way we drive. GM has announced the creation of their haptic seat technology that lets you know when you start unintentionally changing lanes. The system uses a windshield mounted camera to monitor the lines on the road when the vehicle is traveling faster than 35 miles per hour. And when it detects a lane change without the turn signal being used, it will cause the driver's seat to vibrate on either side so they know which direction they've started to drift and can immediately correct it.
3.) The most popular school principal today is Bob Samson who is in charge at Bellingham Christian School in Bellingham, about 90 minutes north of Seattle, Washington. The principal cancelled classes today at the school. Earlier in the week, he saw the forecast for Bellingham for today was supposed to be sunny and 70, so he sent a note home with students that the school would be closed today due to “fabulous weather.” The principal says he's trying to promote a positive school culture, and he hopes the kids will go outside and enjoy the sun. It's also because Bellingham Christian School didn't use any snow days this winter, so they had a few days off to spare.
