States should lower the definition of drunk driving to a blood-alcohol reading of no more than .05 percent, the National Transportation Safety Board’s staff recommended, saying the U.S. is too tolerant of impairment behind the wheel.
The safety board at a meeting today said the U.S. is behind other countries, including most of Europe, in having a threshold for drunk driving of .08 in all 50 U.S. states.

Unlike many celebrity chefs, who treat cooking like some mystical and convoluted ritual, Ina Garten (The Barefoot Countessa) approaches each dish with the nonchalance of someone who could be doing something else. That’s because she could be. Between 1974 and 1978, Garten worked in the Office of Management and Budget at the White House; starting in 1976, she was responsible for the budget of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and for part of the Department of Energy’s. How Garten went from analyzing nuclear policy to overseeing her own cooking empire is one of the unlikelier stories of American reinvention.

Since printing its address and contact details on a slice of muenster cheese would probably do more harm than good for Bon Vivant, the Brazilian-based cheese shop hired ad agency JWT to come up with something better. And in every way possible, this miniature cheese grater business card is a much better idea.
So as not to also turn your wallet into a pile of shredded leather, the grater comes in a protective sleeve, which probably also helps to minimize the inevitable cheese smell from permeating your pocket. And that’s also why the garlic growers of the world should just forget about trying a similar gimmick to promote their product.
You can even see some video of the grater in action.
WHY DIDN’T WE THINK OF THIS GRATE IDEA?!
