My family and I have always wanted to experience a Disney cruise, and this video only continued to build my interest. I can just tell that my daughter's would love the experience, as would my wife and myself. The idea of trying unique dining experiences every night, enjoying Disney themed shows, and interacting with characters while on board is highly intriguing. While we almost always cruise exclusively with Carnival, I know that we have to at least try Disney cruising once while my children are still young enough to truly enjoy it.

New study finds that more people are dependent on caffeine to the point experts are issuing a warning!


Via alessandrapirasdetorrens
Angie Hidalgo's insight:

There are many common symptoms that indicate too much caffeine consumption For example, nauseas, anxiety, insomnia, dizziness etc. These symptoms should be recognized and further caffeine intake should be stopped to avoid more serious and even life-threatening symptoms. Ingesting massive doses of caffeine all at once is particularly dangerous, as it doesn’t give your body time to react. Overdose symptoms serve as an early warning system. I do think that coffee should carry a warning on the dangers of caffeine addiction because a lot of persons are addicts to caffeine and they do not even know.

In this particular case I can not place blame on the bartenders or employees. This is something that all parties (employees and customers) need to be accountable for.

Interesting twist on liquor liability. Should the trained officer have recognized that the driver was intoxicated and prevented her from driving? Should courts hold police officers to the same standards as bar tenders in light of their duty to protect the public?

Tatiana Monsalve's comment, April 27, 2014 2:06 PM
I think both Zamora and Officer Coronado both need to be placed in jail. Zamora for drinking and driving, and not to mention she killed someone while doing so. And Coronado for letting this woman drive away 3 times! He knew she was coming from a yacht club, he knew she wasn't paying attention at all, since her headlights were off. Why would he let her drive away, then meet her, and ask for her phone number, have a full conversation with her, and not care to do his job? He killed someone because of his poor decision, he's a cop, he's supposed to leave all that flirting and socializing behind him while on duty. They both need to pay the consequences and go to jail for a very long time.

A bartender or waitress has no way of knowing if a patron drove, arrived in a taxi, walked, rode bus, or came with someone who is a designated driver. Getting drunk and driving is only the responsibility of the individual. He is fully responsible. Even to this day, he refuses to admit it.

Tatiana Monsalve's comment, April 27, 2014 2:26 PM
As sad as this story was, I agree with measuring a driver’s blood alcohol content before they can start a car. No one should be drinking and driving, it literally does kill. It is sad that we are in 2014, and nothing is being done to at least decrease the amount of times this happens per year. Measuring the amount of alcohol you have consumed is a really good idea. I do believe that the bars have some fault for serving Hutto even more after he was already intoxicated. But it doesn't really mean he has to drive home, one person is allowed to drink, just DO NOT DRIVE. I think Hutto is a full responsibility for all of this. He might have been drinking even before he got to any of these bars, even bought his own drinks before reaching. I do agree with the fact, that the last bar shouldn't have opened after bar hours. They were just interested in making a few more bucks or budget before closing for the night. Not to mention that Hutto had been convicted of DUI years before. He is at full fault and should go to jail for life, he obviously didn't learn his lesson. Anyways, what sick person wants to go to church a couple hours after they've been acting like this, while he's hungover and looks like pure hell.
