Wharton students to Trump: 'You do not represent us' (CNN)
Trump regularly reminds the public he attended Wharton, and often credits the school for his business knowledge. However, on Friday over 1,400 current Wharton students and alumni expressed their disdain for Trump, saying they were "deeply disappointed" by his candidacy. "We, proud students, alumni, and faculty of Wharton, are outraged that an affiliation with our school is being used to legitimize prejudice and intolerance," the letter read. "Although we do not aim to make any political endorsements with this letter, we do express our unequivocal stance against the xenophobia, sexism, racism, and other forms of bigotry that you have actively and implicitly endorsed in your campaign."

I used a nanny cam to catch my co-worker stealing my lunch (NYP)
The burrito in question — a perfect mix of pulled pork, green chile queso, salsa verde, romaine, crispy tortilla strips, and manchego and Monterey Jack cheeses that the 25-year-old account executive goes gaga over — seemingly vanished from the office fridge and into thin air. The only evidence that it ever existed was the bag that [Noelle] Mulholland had used to carry it between purveyor Mexicue in NoMad and Phear Creative, the Flatiron-based ad agency where she works. “I was so angry when I opened the refrigerator and my burrito wasn’t there,” says the Queens resident, who immediately fired off an e-mail to the entire company, even upper management..While Mulholland never did find out for sure who nabbed her burrito, Jacqueline Whitmore, founder and director of the Florida-based Protocol School of Palm Beach, says it’s normal to want to nail the person yourself. “But don’t become the kitchen cop,” she warns. “You’ll only be creating trouble for yourself.” This is something that Ted, who wouldn’t share his last name for professional reasons, learned the hard way. While working at a large pharmaceutical firm in New Jersey a few years ago, he put up a nanny cam in the company kitchen to find out who was nabbing his meals. When management discovered it, they fired him.

Canadian man uses drone to wax his leg hair (UPI)
David Freiheit recorded himself Thursday applying a Nair wax strip to his leg after fitting the strip with some wire. Freiheit then launched his drone, which was connected to the wire in the wax strip with some rope. The drone gets a good head start from the slack on the rope before successfully yanking the wax strip -- and Freiheit's leg hair. "For the first time in the history of human kind, someone has used a drone to wax their legs" he wrote. "I only did one strip, but the venture was a smashing success."
