Starbucks Sues Starbung Coffee Stall
A Bangkok coffee maker is in trouble over his logo
This coffee stall in Thailand is being sued by Starbucks.
A Thai coffee stall has been sued by Starbucks thanks to its eerily similar green-and-white logo.
The Guardian reports that a coffee stall in Bangkok has been hit with a trademark violation complaint; the green-and-white "Starbung" emblem has a man pouring coffee with the peace sign in the middle of a circle.
"My logo is halal and has a moon and a star, and is green for the color of Islam," owner Damrong Maslae told the Guardian. "Starbucks has insisted I take out the green and the words 'star' and 'coffee.' I can't do that."
Starbucks filed a cease-and-desist letter late last year, and has since filed a a petition with the international trade and central intellectual property court. The company fears that customers will believe they're purchasing Starbucks coffee.
Starbung, however, serves coffee in the Thai style, and Maslae vows to "fight them to the end."
Thread: Thai coffee vendor defies Starbucks
A Thai coffee vendor is refusing to drop his "Starbung Coffee" logo, defying legal threats by US multinational Starbucks.
Last week, a Thai law firm filed a complaint on behalf of Starbucks Coffee Company against Damrong Maslae, 44, for not complying with an injunction issued in 2012 to remove the "Starbung Coffee" logo from his sidewalk stall in the Thai capital.
The international coffee giant has demanded compensation of 300,000 baht ($A9950), plus 30,000 baht ($A995) a month in legal fees.
An initial hearing has been set for November 4.
"I will fight the case," Damrong told DPA on Wednesday.
"I may lose, because Starbucks is a big company with a lot of money, but I have already won my case in the eyes of society," he said.
"My customers, both Thais and foreigners, have given me a lot of moral support," he said.
"One client gave me 1000 baht ($A33) to help fight my case and yesterday another paid 500 baht for a cup of coffee and told me to keep the change."
Damrong, a Muslim from Krabi province in southern Thailand, insisted that his green-and-white logo, which depicts a Muslim man at its centre with crescent moons on the side, was inspired by Islam, not Starbucks.

Too little, too latte? Starbucks is being sued for underfilling your coffee
A federal judge is allowing the bulk of a lawsuit accusing Starbucks of systematically underfilling lattes to move forward. Two California residents are suing the Seattle-based coffee chain, claiming that Starbucks lattes are filled only filled to about 75 percent of the cup’s capacity. The lawsuit says Starbucks instituted a recipe in 2009 to create smaller lattes in order to save money on milk. Starbucks spokesman Reggie Borges said in a statement that the company believes the lawsuit is “without merit” and it will be prepared to defend itself in court. He said if a customer is unhappy with a beverage, Starbucks “will gladly remake it.”

Suspected Killer Admits To Dozens of Murders After Mutilated Corpses Are Found In His Home
A 72-year-old man was arrested this week following the discovery of human remains under the floorboards of his home. He has confessed to killing as many as 30 people over the last two decades. The suspect, identified only as “Andrés N,” per Mexican privacy laws, was known colloquially as El Chino (The Chinese). He was arrested inside his home in the municipality of Atizapán de Zaragoza on Saturday for the killing of 34-year-old Reyna González, who vanished on May 13. He is believed to have stabbed her and dismembered her body El Pais reported. Police said they found shoes, ID cards, women’s handbags, and clothing in the home along with other belongings linked specifically to Rubicela Gallegos and Flor Nínive Vizcaíno, who disappeared in 2016 and 2019, respectively, according to the outlet. Reports have emerged from various news outlets in Mexico that Andreas N. told authorities he’d eaten some of the remains of his victims and peeled the skin off of González's face. Investigators reportedly also discovered scalps and skulls, and audio recordings of over a dozen murders. The alleged killer also had weapons including machetes and a fretsaw on the property. After his arrest, Andrés N. reportedly admitted to as many as 30 murders, the news agency Efe reported. Prosecutors in the State of Mexico, which includes Mexico City and much of its suburbs, said Wednesday that they have yet to determine the number of possible victims in the case, the Associated Press reported. According to Efe, he is being held at the Tlalnepantla Penitentiary and Social Reintegration Center. The gruesome discovery of González’s hacked-up body on a bloody table came during the search for her in Las Lomas de San Miguel, a neighborhood on the western edge of Mexico City. Investigators jackhammered the floor and took apart a concrete structure on the common-access property, then forensics experts sifted through dirt to find evidence. DNA testing will be needed to determine how many victims Andrés N. may have killed over the years, prosecutors said. Andrés N. rented out rooms in his home to support himself, El Pais reported. Fernando López, his tenant, is a doctor who ran a practice in one of the rooms he was told by authorities to exit the property as the search began. Prior to her brutal death, González ran a small cellphone store near the property where her remains were found. When she vanished on Friday, missing person posters went up around the neighborhood. Neighbors said that she knew Andrés N. — who they reportedly said got along well with locals and had been a local association leader.“The man was always there at her store, always talking to her, always there,” Karla Narváez, a local pharmacy owner, told El Pais.According to a report in El Universal, González had gone to the alleged killer's home before she disappeared. He was going to accompany her on a trip to the center of Mexico City to purchase merchandise for her cell phone sales business. Resident Maura Valle told reporters that Andrés N. never had a life partner but did have a sister who no longer lives in the immediate area. Femicides — defined as the murder of women because of gender — have plagued Mexico for decades. In 2019, approximately 35,000 women were murdered, according to the Center for Strategic and International Studies. The country began collecting data on femicides in 2012. Activists say that femicides have become so pervasive that police no longer do much to prevent, investigate or prosecute the killings.

The Strange New Turn in the Case of 4-Year-Old Cash Gernon
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Photos by Dallas County Police DepartmentDALLAS—After the kidnapping and killing of 4-year-old Cash Gernon in Dallas last week, neighbor Jose Alvarado checked his security cameras for any footage that might help investigators.What he found sent a chill up his spine.The video is from 10 weeks before little Cash was left dead of stab wounds on the ground. But it shows the teenager charged with abducting him, Darriynn Brown, skulking down the street, opening Alvarado’s backyard gate and peering in before quickly walking away.“It’s really scary,” Alvarado told The Daily Beast. “I have two kids, one girl and one boy, and they play basketball in the backyard.”Alvarado’s house shares a back alley with the home of Monica Sherrod, 35, who was taking care of Cash and his twin, Carter. She has said she was dating the twins’ father, Trevor Gernon, a 31-year-old construction worker, until he reportedly left town in March when a court ordered him to report to rehab.That left Sherrod to care for the boys for the next two months—unbeknownst to their mother, Melinda Seagroves, who lives in Houston.Early on the morning of May 15, a young man crept into the twins’ bedroom, lifted a still-sleeping Cash out of the toddler bed he shared with Carter, and walked out—a chilling scene captured in grainy black and white by a baby monitor.The footage, obtained by the Daily Mail, shows the intruder returning about two hours later, hovering over the bed where Carter remained in slumber, before abruptly leaving as though he was startled by something.By then, Cash was already dead.Antwainese Square, a Dallas teacher who lives in the area, was out for her morning walk around 6:45 a.m. when she saw a clump of hair on the ground she thought belonged to a dog.“I was on the phone with my mom,” Square told The Daily Beast. “As I got closer, I could see an arm and a foot and I just began crying, saying, ‘Mom, I think I’m coming up on a body.’ And I started, ‘Mommy, it’s a child! It’s a child!’ And the baby had blood all over his face. At that point, my mom told me to get off the phone with her and immediately call 911… The baby had ants all over the bottom of his feet. So I pretty much knew that he was gone.”Square said she remembers “being in denial,” and hoped Cash was actually just sleeping even though he was obviously dead. “I was just trying to put together all possible stories there was no way in my mind that I would think somebody would do that to a kid,” she said, adding that she stayed with Cash’s body until police and paramedics arrived so no one would run over him.“One couple that was leaving out of their garage, I had to stop them to let them know that this baby was on the ground,” Square said.More than three hours later, Sherrod reported Cash missing. “The day that he was missing, I got up late and thought it was weird,” Sherrod would later tell the Daily Mail. “I was like, ‘It's 10 oɼlock already, you guys.’ So I figured Cash was still in bed.” Cash Gernon was abducted out of his bed on May 15. Handout Later that day, police arrested Brown, 18, who lives with his parents about a half-mile from where Cash’s body was found, according to court documents. He was charged with kidnapping and burglary, but not murder because police said they are waiting for the result of forensic tests.Held in lieu of $1.5 million bail, Brown could not be reached for comment and does not have a lawyer listed in court records. His mother, Mimi, has told reporters that she believes her son is being framed.A tangled web of relationships, criminal records, and an unknown motive hangs over the case.Sherrod, the mother of several children, has a criminal record that includes assault and DWI. Trevor Gernon, who has an extensive rap sheet, appears to have vanished a phone number listed under his name was disconnected. Darriynn Brown, meanwhile, is reportedly a friend of one of Sherrod’s children and had been seen playing with children in Sherrod’s care.Sherrod initially characterized any relationship she or her kids had with Brown, who attended the same high school as at least one of the boys living in her house, as minimal. She later told a reporter that Brown had visited her home two days before Cash’s murder, but she was out grocery shopping at the time.According to multiple neighbors, Brown was definitely not an unfamiliar face around the neighborhood. One told The Daily Beast the teen regularly played football and basketball with some of the kids who lived with Sherrod. Others said they had spotted Brown on their Ring security cameras hanging out in the area.Little information has emerged about Seagroves, who now has custody of Carter. Seagroves did not respond to multiple interview requests, but her mother, Connie Ward, told The Daily Beast this week: “We are not ready to give any kind of statement. My family is broken. It has been a nightmare listening and watching the news about our baby and stories being reported that are false.”Seagroves does not appear to have had any brushes with the law, but court records show both Sherrod and Gernon have records that include arrests for assaulting their own parents.In 2013, Sherrod pleaded guilty to attacking her mother, Lezlee Pinkerton. According to a criminal affidavit signed by Officer Glenn Burkheimer-Lubeck of the Harris County Constable’s Office, Sherrod “intentionally struck” Pinkerton in the head and chest with her hand and pulled her to the ground, then “cause[d] bodily injury” to Pinkerton “by stomping on [Pinkerton’s] toes with her feet.”“Complainant reports that she believes her toes are broken,” the affidavit says. Sherrod was sentenced to two years of community supervision, participation in a domestic violence treatment program, a $100 donation to a family violence center, and a $200 fine.In 2018, Gernon was arrested by deputies from the Harris County Sheriff’s Office for assaulting his father, Roger Gernon, during a dispute over a credit card bill, Texas court records show. When Roger Gernon told his son that he was going to call the police, Trevor grabbed the phone away, bloodied his dad’s arm with his fingernails, and elbowed him in the chest. Charged with misdemeanor assault and interference with an emergency telephone call, he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 68 days in county jail.In addition to the assault of family members, both Sherrod and Gernon have a history of theft, fraud, and drug possession.Sherrod’s most recent arrest was for DWI she has also pleaded guilty to identity fraud charges, meth possession, driving without a license, and misdemeanor theft.Gernon’s most recent arrest was for the possession of narcotics in 2020. He was previously charged for possession of methamphetamine in 2016. His rap sheet includes a range of other crimes.Neal Flanagan, who co-owns a corrosion-proofing business, told The Daily Beast he met Gernon in high school, then reconnected in 2016. He gave Gernon a bit of work because he was struggling. Then things went sideways.“My ex-wife and I were married at the time,” said Flanagan. “We had started having issues. She separated from me in January 2017. That’s when Trevor and her started seeing each other.”“I never did see him after,” said Flanagan. “A couple years later, he messaged me on Facebook. Like, ‘Hey buddy. How you been?’ Like nothing ever happened."When he was sober, Gernon “was as good as you could ask for,” Neal’s father, Johnny Flanagan, said. But he added that he wasn’t surprised Gernon took off without his boys.“He’s one of these guys that kind of goes whichever way the wind blows, you know, and he'll do good for several months and then do bad for several months and you know, just up and disappear,” Flanagan said.Gernon’s whereabouts are unknown. Following his indictment on felony drug possession charges last November, he failed to appear for a March 29, 2021, hearing and thus forfeited a $10,000 bond payment. There is now an open warrant out for his arrest.None of the various defense lawyers who represented Sherrod or Gernon in court agreed to speak, citing attorney-client privilege.Cash’s death has raised many questions about those responsible for him. But in the neighborhood where he spent his last months, the overriding mystery is why would someone kill a defenseless child and leave him on the street like trash. Steven Monacelli The solidly working-class Mountain Creek section of Dallas is a quiet place, bordered on one side by the 600-acre Cedar Ridge nature preserve. Houses are in decent shape, and yards are clean. On the street where Cash’s body was found, locals have been stopping at a shrine to leave toys, flowers, and other mementos.The woman who found Cash’s body, meanwhile, has been struggling with her emotions since that morning.“It's been difficult. It really has been difficult,” Square told The Daily Beast.“I have a 3-year-old and as we’re dealing with this and processing this, I’m learning that I have little triggers. If I see a little boy, 4, 3, 5, I will burst out crying. It’s just a trigger for me. My own daughter is like a trigger. Sometimes she’ll say something and I’ll cry.“Because even though I didn’t know that baby, he was just robbed of his life. So, it’s been really hard. It’s been really hard to just process this. And no matter how much you try to move on, you can’t unsee what you saw.”Rohrlich reported from New York, and Monacelli from Dallas.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

If You Use This to Grow Your Garden, You Could Get Salmonella, Experts Say
With summer fast approaching, many people around the U.S. are eagerly planting their gardens, hoping they'll yield a bounty of vegetables, fruits, and flowers in the coming months. However, there's one common gardening habit that could make you seriously ill, experts warn. Read on to discover which gardening mistake you can't afford to make this summer.RELATED: If You're Over 65, Never Drink This While Eating, New Study Says. Composting animal products can introduce harmful bacteria into your garden. While making compost from food scraps may be an eco-friendly way to grow your own food, adding the wrong ingredients to the mix could potentially jeopardize your health."Meat, bones, and dairy products don't belong in a typical household compost pile and can introduce harmful bacteria and attract pests to your soil and gardens," says Darby Hoover, a senior resource specialist at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).Hoover additionally notes that "the added fat and grease from those types of products can also clump things together and prevent much-needed airflow."For the latest health and safety news delivered straight to your inbox, sign up for our daily newsletter! The bacteria is rarely absorbed through soil in the edible flesh of plants. A 2012 review of research published in the journal Foodborne Pathogens and Disease found that there had been multiple cases of salmonella internalized into plants through contamination in growing conditions.Salmonella was found in the roots of lettuce, seedlings of radishes and lettuce, barley roots and shoots, and all major tissues of peanuts—however, all of the aforementioned crops had been grown hydroponically, meaning no soil had been used. The study's researchers concluded that salmonella contamination via a plant's flesh through soil was unlikely. Though, it can be introduced during the harvesting process. While soil may not be a common culprit when it comes to salmonella contamination, the dangerous bacteria can be introduced into crops during the harvesting period.A 2012 study published in the Annual Review of Food Science and Technology found that the pathogens like salmonella can be introduced into produce due to tiny cuts in the surface of their exterior tissues during the harvesting process. In a study published the same year in the International Journal of Microbiology, researchers discovered that cantaloupes that came in contact with contaminated soil bore detectable salmonella on their rinds, which could be introduced into the fruit's flesh if it were subsequently cut. Keeping compost at warmer temperatures can help protect your health. While not introducing animal products into your compost is your best bet for protecting your health, keeping your compost at an adequate temperature—something easily measured with a compost thermometer—can also help.According to a 2012 study published in the International Journal of Microbiology, salmonella in compost was inactivated after just 24 hours in a 140-degree Fahrenheit environment, but survived for three full days in an environment that was just 18 degrees cooler.RELATED: Never Eat Leftovers That've Been in the Fridge This Long, Experts Warn.

Section 3: Market Analysis and the Competition
Demonstrate that you have thoroughly analyzed the target market and that there is enough demand for your products to make your coffee business viable. The competitive analysis includes an assessment of the competition and how your coffee business will compete in the sector.
Given the proximity to schools and office complexes, our primary target market will be students and professional business people. Both groups are heavy consumers of coffee, tea, and snacks.
Based on our customer surveys, there is a strong demand for a high-end coffee shop in a central location that serves great coffee and has both outdoor seating and available parking. The three most common complaints about the existing competition in the area are:
- Inconsistent product: Discerning customers are reluctant to become regular patrons of a coffee shop that cannot consistently serve a high-quality product.
- Lack of patio seating: Many people prefer to consume their food and beverages outdoors on a sunny day.
- Lack of parking: The lack of parking makes it difficult to attract vehicle commuters.
The local customer base consists of approximately:
- 3,000 students from two post-secondary schools
- 200 school staff
- 1,000 business people and office workers
Both schools have solid attendance and are expanding their student populations. The local business market is strong and has been relatively unaffected by previous economic downturns.
Compared to our compeition, we expect our revenues to grow strongly as we build our customer base:

Daughter-in-law dishes on 'Eli's Cheesecake Cookbook'
In 1940, Eli Schulman saw a foreclosure sign in front of a coffee shop he liked on Chicago's West Side, so he decided to buy the place. A few days later, he opened the Ogden Huddle and found the restaurant's chef passed out drunk on the floor. He had to call his mother for advice so he could prepare food for the customers himself. The food was well received and he went on to open Eli's Stage Deli on the Near North Side in 1958 and Eli's The Place for Steak in 1966.
"What's interesting to me was how different times were then compared to now," said his daughter-in-law Maureen Schulman. "This would never happen today. He never went to culinary school he never went to pastry school. He just wanted cheesecake to be his signature dessert and started making them between lunch and dinner."
Eli died in 1988 and Eli's The Place for Steak closed a decade ago, but his unique style of cheesecake, made with cookie crust instead of graham crackers and cooked hot and fast instead of in the low temperature water bath used to make the New York version of the dessert, remains a Chicago favorite. Maureen Schulman collaborated with a trio of chefs to write "The Eli's Cheesecake Cookbook," which they published in December to celebrate Eli's Cheesecake's 35th anniversary. She'll be discussing the book and doling out samples on Jan. 30 at The Book Stall in Winnetka.
"It's not like your normal cookbook," Schulman said. "There's a lot of historical information. It really traces my father-in-law's career from the Depression, to World War II straight until now. Even if you're not a big baker you might want the book because there's so much Chicago history."
Maureen wrote her sections by combining 12 years of knowing Eli personally with research involving pouring over pictures, newspaper clippings and her mother-in-law's scrapbooks and interviewing her husband, Marc, and other people that knew Eli well including co-author Jolene Worthington, who was the first person Eli hired. Worthington, who now serves as vice president of operations for Eli's Cheesecake World and Café, 6701 W. Forest Preserve Drive, Chicago, said she was shocked that Eli stumbled upon such a great cheesecake recipe given his lack of cooking experience. Before opening his first restaurant, Eli worked odd jobs including selling shoes out of the back of a car on Maxwell Street during the Great Depression and serving as a deputy city coroner and a commissioner of the North Shore mosquito abatement district.
The book is packed with pictures showing celebrities that visited Eli's restaurants including Barbra Streisand and Frank Sinatra. Eli's Stage Deli was located in an area with many nightclubs, and its late hours made it an after-show destination for performers that got their start on Chicago's stages. The place was regularly so crowded that Eli became a master at turning over tables.
"He had a real energetic welcoming personality and he could do things that no one else would do," Maureen said. "If you were staying too long at a table he would put a Styrofoam cup down next to your coffee and say 'take it to go' or he'd come over with a parking meter head and say 'your time is up.'"
Eli's businesses were also a favorite of politicians and newspaper columnists would talk to him in hopes of getting scoops. "Everyone told him everything," Maureen said.
The first 10 recipes in the cookbook are savory favorites from Eli's The Place for Steak including chopped liver and shrimp de jonghe. The rest of the book focuses on dessert, with chapters devoted to different batters, crusts, finishing touches and suggestions on how to combine all three from celebrities including former Chicago Bears coach Mike Ditka, who prefers baked apple cheesecake with toasted oat and pecan streusel, and Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy, who likes plain cheesecake atop stroopwafel. Maureen Schulman said it's hard to go wrong with the combinations.
"I hope the book inspires a little creativity," she said. "People can mix and match. I'm not a great cook. I did a nut crust, espresso batter and chocolate ganache top. I took something out of each chapter and it turned out great."

“Starbucks new winter menu offers a range of beverages and fan-favorite foods to help customers bring in the new year with the right choices for their lifestyle and taste preferences,” the Seattle-based coffee giant said in a statement.
The company announced that starting Tuesday, customers can order the new Honey Almondmilk Cold Brew and the Pistachio Latte at participating locations in the U.S. and Canada.
The latte, inspired by a drink first launched at Starbucks Reserve Roasteries, is made with the flavor of pistachio paired with espresso and steamed milk and finished with a salted brown buttery topping.
Starbucks also said the Kale and Portabella Mushroom Sous Vide Egg Bites and the returning Honey Almondmilk Flat White are permanent items, while a Red Velvet Loaf and the Earth Cake Pop are available for a limited time.

Martha Stewart Reveals Her Last Culinary Mishap: 'the Croissants Were Still Frozen'
Even Martha Stewart makes mistakes in the kitchen!
During a recent interview for PeopleTV&aposs "One Last Thing" segment, Stewart, 79, admitted that her latest cooking mishap had just happened that morning.
"I had a guest stay overnight and I wanted to serve beautiful Ladurພ croissants that are in the freezer," she said, explaining that her oven had malfunctioned and "everything got turned on except the gas."
She continued, "So the croissants were still frozen by the time the guest came for breakfast."
After noticing the problem, Stewart said she was fortunately able to stall by whipping up some other food while waiting for the croissants.
"I had to scurry around and make some eggs, just waiting for the croissants to heat up," she said.
Stewart told PEOPLE that Ladurພ croissants aren&apost the only thing she keeps stocked in her freezer.
"I eat ice cream sometimes from the frozen food aisle," she said. "Usually coffee [flavor]."
