ABC Gives Pilot Order For NYPD Blue Revival

ABC has given a pilot production commitment to an all new NYPD Blue revival series that will revolve around the son of Dennis Franz’s character Detective Andy Sipowicz. The pilot is already in the casting stages for its four main roles.

The sequel will not feature the return of Franz’s character. Instead, in the new series Sipowicz is now dead, and the story will focus on his son Theo “as he tries to earn his detective shield and work in the 15th squad while investigating his father’s murder. Theo seems to have taken after his father as he too is a hard-drinking, hard-headed and quick-witted cop.”

Square Announces Terminal Standalone Point-of-Sale Solution

Square has just released Square Terminal, a new all-in-one point of sale solution for the company’s payments service. Rather than relying on an accessory attached to an iPhone or iPad, Square Terminal provides full end-to-end credit card processing for traditional swipe and chip card payment methods as well as contactless payments, including support for Apple Pay. 

The device connects to Square via Wi-Fi, and includes a touchscreen for keying in transactions and amounts, as well as a built-in receipt printer for issuing paper receipts (although Square’s e-mail and text receipt options are also still available with the terminal as well). 

A built-in battery and durable construction allows the terminal to be used anywhere without needing to be tethered to a desk, meaning it can be used in environments like restaurants and also be easily set up at trade shows and other events, although merchants will need to either have a Wi-Fi network or mobile hotspot available, although an offline mode allows users to keep taking payments even when no internet connection is available. 

Terminal is available in the U.S. for $399, although Square is offering a $300 processing credit for merchants who are new to Square.

Kellogg Partners With GLAAD For Spirit Day, Launching “All Together” Cereal

Kellogg Company firmly believes in equity and inclusion in the workplace, marketplace and in the communities where we work and live. Continuing its commitment to inclusion, Kellogg is again partnering with GLAAD as an official sponsor of Spirit Day, the largest, most visible anti-bullying campaign in the world. Kellogg, its brands, and employees, are ‘going purple’, the color of spirit on the rainbow flag, to stand up to bullying and show support for LGBTQ youth.

New this year – in celebration of Spirit Day and for one day only, Oct. 18 – limited edition “All Together” Spirit Day cereal boxes, will be available exclusively at Kellogg’s New York City Cafe to mix favorite Kellogg’s cereals together in celebration of belonging no matter how you look, where you’re from, or who you love. All proceeds from Kellogg’s “All Together Cereal” will be donated to GLAAD.

Celebrating Spirit Day globally, Kellogg employees around the world will participate in conversations that enable the company to build a culture where all employees are inspired to share their passion, talents and ideas. At Kellogg Company World Headquarters, employees will invite the community to help celebrate Spirit Day with an anti-bullying art exhibit – created by local students – during a local art hop event.

“At Kellogg, we are committed to a diverse and inclusive environment. We have long been allies and supporters of LGBTQ employees, their families and the community,” said Mark King, Global Head, Diversity and Inclusion. “For more than 100 years, Kellogg has nourished families so they can flourish and thrive and the company continues to welcome everyone to the table.”

Burger King Nightmare King

Burger King loves to experiment with weird burger buns—usually featuring an unnatural color. Today, the chain has unveiled a new burger, the Nightmare King, featuring a green bun just in time for Halloween, but this time there’s a new twist on the unusual bun gag: The company is looking to make good on its nightmare claim using science to figure out if eating this burger will actually make you more likely to have a nightmare.

The chain, along with creative shop David Miami, conducted a sleep study in partnership with the Paramount Trials as well as the Florida Sleep and Neuro Diagnostic Services to find out just how scary its new burger is (because we fear burgers this time of year?). Using 100 participants for 10 nights Burger King asked participants to eat its burger and then tracked their heart rate, brain activity and breath.

“According to previous studies, 4 percent of the population experiences nightmares in any given night,” said Dr. Jose Gabriel Medina, the somnologist and lead doctor behind the study, in a statement. “But, after eating the Nightmare King, the data obtained from the study indicated that the incidence of nightmares increased by 3.5 times.”

Apparently the burger, which has beef, chicken, American cheese, bacon, mayonnaise and onions on the aforementioned green bun, has a protein and cheese combination that can cause “an interruption of the subjects’ REM (Rapid Eye Movement) cycles, during which we experience the majority of our dreams,” noted Medina.

Why anyone would choose to eat a burger that allegedly causes nightmares? Well, we still don’t have that answer. The burger will be available at Burger King locations from Oct. 22 to Oct. 25.
