When the next customer went to pay for his or her caramel macchiato and was told that it had already been covered, he or she decided to continue the trend and paid for the drink of the next customer. Soon, the employees began keeping a tally and informing each new customer of the trend, saying they could either pay for their tab, which would then go towards the following customer, or cover the following customer entirely.</p> <p>According to the St. Petersburg, Fla., Starbucks baristas, 260 customers had participated by 1:30 p.m., and <a href="http://www.tampabay.com/news/humaninterest/more-than-250-have-paid-it-forward-at-local-starbucks-and-the-chain-is/2193784" target="_blank">378 people took part in the pay it forward chain</a> before it was halted at 6 p.m.</p> <p>“We are greatly humbled by the generosity of our customers and store partners in the organic Pay It Forward movement happening in St. Petersburg, Florida. It’s truly a testament to the goodwill of our customers and our store team,” <a href="http://www.cnn.com/2014/08/21/us/starbucks-pay-it-forward-chain/index.html?sr=tw082214starbuckspayitforward1130aVODtopPhoto" target="_blank">said Starbucks spokesperson <strong>Linda Mills</strong></a>.</p> <p>According to the <em>Tampa Bay Times</em>, a woman who would have been the 379th participant appeared confused when asked by the Starbucks employee if she would like to pay for the next drink and insisted to pay for her own coffee.</p> <h1> Man Goes To Starbucks To Break The Streak</h1> <p>On Thursday, the very same Starbucks experienced another pay it forward streak until the 457th customer, blogger <strong>Peter Schorsch</strong>, purposefully drove to the Starbucks to end it.</p> <p>“When the barista asks you to pay it forward, <a href="http://abcnews.go.com/US/florida-man-deliberately-scuttles-pay-forward-starbucks-line/story?id=25084619#" target="_blank">it is no longer spontaneous</a>,” Schorsch explained to ABC News.</p> <p>Schorsch, who claims he left the Starbucks barista a $100 tip, says he felt that the streak made the action of paying it forward meaningless, and pointed out that some customers ended up paying more than their fair share due to the varying orders and drink prices.</p> <p>“It just seems like a First World problem to me. Middle-class people sitting in their cars at a drive-thru, sipping a $5 drink and worrying about someone breaking the ranks,” Schorsch continued.</p> <h1> Over 700 Customers Pay It Forward</h1> <p>Schorsch, of course, blogged about his acts, claiming responsibility for ending the chain, but that has not been confirmed. And despite Schorsch’s attempts, he did not end the pay it forward movement. In fact, according to Mills, many people have chosen not to participate and gone on with their day, interrupting the chain for only a moment or two.</p> <p>“There were some stops and starts to it since it started yesterday [Wednesday] morning at 7 a.m.,” Mills said Thursday, adding, “More than 750 people have participated in it at this one store, which is so amazing to see. Naturally not everyone chose to participate, which is completely fine.”</p>Fri, 22 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/1j5x4bwwzjbnt/hjd7k2s8e5cgo/k8pptb18cpww8880/2zf4p27ulo8/2imq9amt72gwcs/c8l26tqso8/3onliozw<![CDATA[Brenton Thwaites And Odeya Rush On 'The Giver,' Working With Jeff Bridges & Taylor Swift [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO]]]>http://uinterview.com/news/brenton-thwaites-and-odeya-rush-on-the-giver-working-with-jeff-bridges-and-taylor-swift-exclusive-video-12594<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/brenton-thwaites-and-odeya-rush-on-the-giver-working-with-jeff-bridges-and-taylor-swift-exclusive-video-12594'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/4bab84a148dc45b27b73621ed19a93b4-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><script src="http://www.springboardplatform.com/js/overlay"></script><iframe frameborder="0" height="300" id="uinv010_978273" scrolling="no" src="http://cms.springboardplatform.com/embed_iframe/2141/video/978273/uinv010/uinterview.com/10" width="300"></iframe> <p><strong>Brenton Thwaites </strong>and <strong>Odeya Rush </strong>are the two young stars of <em>The Giver</em>, which has been brought to the big screen by director <strong>Phillip Noyce</strong> from <strong>Lois Lowry</strong>’s 1993 Newbury Medal-winning novel.</p> <h1> Brenton Thwaites, Odeya Rush On 'The Giver'</h1> <p>Neither Thwaites nor Rush had read Lowry’s novel prior to reading the script for the feature, but picked up copies soon thereafter. Though their characters – Jonas and Fiona – are four years younger in the book than the teens they were bringing to the big screen, they both found the read helpful in developing them.</p> <p>“I think reading it helped me a lot with approaching this character,” Rush told uInterview. Thwaites added, “Once I read the book I kind of said to myself, 'Wow, this is a dream.' You know, it's a license almost to feel such an array of emotions. So it was a great challenge.”</p> <p>One of the emotions Thwaites had to master was one's first encounter with love – an emotion that had been “stolen” from Jonas by injections but that he begins to feel for Fiona. “We find love throughout the film,” Thwaites explained to uInterview exclusively. “When I stop taking my injections I start to feel a sense of love, and I guess that is returned when [Sophia’s] character stops taking her injections. And that's what we fight for.”</p> <h1> Thwaites & Rush On 'Jamming' With Swift & Bridges</h1> <p><br /> When Thwaites and Rush’s characters weren’t falling in love onscreen, the actors enjoyed the company of their costars – namely the musically inclined <strong>Taylor Swift </strong>and <strong>Jeff Bridges</strong>. On working with Swift, who plays the late daughter of Bridges' character and former Receiver of Memory Rosemary, Thwaits said, “It was great, we had a lot of time off set to play guitar. […] It was a fun couple of days working with Taylor.”</p> <p>Though Rush didn’t have scenes with Swift, one of her favorite recollections from working on the film was “jamming” with the “Shake It Off” singer and Bridges. “[Jeff] plays guitar [and] he sings, and Brenton would play and sing, and I sang,” Rush revealed. “When Taylor came she also played with us, like [Brenton] said. I think those moments were really fun. Jeff always told us not to take life too seriously and to enjoy it. And, Jeff knows how to enjoy his life in the time that he works on set.”</p> <p><em>The Giver </em>is currently in wide release.</p> <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/iJNNugNe0Wo?rel=0" width="300"></iframe>Fri, 22 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/1j5x4bwwzjbnt/hjd7k2s8e5cgo/k8pptb18cpww8880/2zf4p27ulo8/2imq9amt72gwcs/c8l26tqso8/c2lq0w41ncgs0<![CDATA[Jessie Nizewitz Sues For $10 Million After Genitals Are Exposed On 'Dating Naked']]>http://uinterview.com/news/jessie-nizewitz-sues-for-10-million-after-genitals-are-exposed-on-dating-naked-12595<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/jessie-nizewitz-sues-for-10-million-after-genitals-are-exposed-on-dating-naked-12595'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/5e9aef43fe5c4d21f2d6a37bbb72ec73-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Jessie Nizewitz</strong>, 28, a cast member on <em>Dating Naked</em>, filed a $10 million law suit after VH1 failed to censor a shot of her genitals.</p> <p><em>Dating Naked</em>, VH1’s newest matchmaking reality show, features contestants who meet and then date completely in the nude.

While walking down the boardwalk in Hollywood Beach, Fla., with light weights strapped to her ankles, Rohrback started moving to the beat of a catchy song that started playing through her earphones. The rhythm she found through the song became the first version of her popular exercise. "I heard a really good song on the music player that I had; I started moving in a very unique fashion forward, rhythmically, and that became the first mode of Prancercise: the Prancercise walk," Rohrback told uInterview exclusively.</p> <p>In her latest video, the follow-up to the insanely viral first one that Rohrback released in 2013, the exercise originator teams up with a number of horsse. Rohrback admits that including the horses in the video was fulfilling a childhood dream – not one of riding a horse, but moving alongside of it with a prance of her own.</p> <p>“It was always my dream to move alongside a horse, Prancercising and not riding one because I’m not one to ride a horse,” explained Rohrback. “Personally, I don’t want to force my will on another creature, and I don’t want to put a bit in its mouth, put a saddle on it, and kick it with my feet to force its movement in one way or another. I’d much rather just be part of the herd and move alongside one and Prancercise.”</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/cIXIZ_8aGM8?list=UUJ8M54BsuUzQxFXLzNcrrmw" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>In order to make this dream a reality, Rohrback joined forces with Peacefull Ridge Rescue owner <strong>Victor Cutino. "</strong>He’s a very good human being and when I approached him for a location, and I didn’t know where it was going to go and we talked more, and it just kind of came to be," said Rohrback. "He’s very comfortable with the horses and not everybody can be that way, and he was just a good accompaniment to my video."</p> <h1> Rohrback Talks 'Impostors,' New Exercise</h1> <p>From the get-go, when Rohrback was perfecting her Prancercise movements on the boardwalk, she received wary looks from people who thought she was “on drugs or something,” but it didn’t deter her. Rohrback has also been making an effort to not be phased by the “imposters” copying her moves or the plethora of parody videos that have cropped up.</p> <p>"I know people are trying to do it but in kind of not upright ways and not legitimate ways, but as I have my certification process in motion, that will change," says Rohrback of the impostors. As for the parodies, she says, "I say ‘Hey, everybody wants to ride the wave and any type of amusement and entertainment they can bring out. Why not, you know? Everybody was so in awe and trying to figure me out, and thought it was kind of funny because of the clothes I was wearing or the way I was wearing them or the way I talked and it was just all so new and different that it was easy to do parodies for it.”</p> <p>Rohrback, who parlayed her cyber-stardom into a guest-starring role on <em>Glee</em>, does have more exercises in store for her fans – but she’s not ready to share what they are just yet. “Hey, you guys have to learn the first four modes! You want more?” she asked with a laugh, adding, “There is another mode of Prancercise that I might develop but that’s hush hush for now. You have enough to chew on. I’ve got to have some secrets to make myself intriguing!”</p> <p> </p> <p> </p>Fri, 22 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/1j5x4bwwzjbnt/hjd7k2s8e5cgo/k8pptb18cpww8880/2zf4p27ulo8/2imq9amt72gwcs/c8l26tqso8/1ip5n8vr31vog4<![CDATA[Goliath Grouper Swallows A 4-ft Shark Whole In Viral Video]]>http://uinterview.com/news/goliath-grouper-swallows-a-4-ft-shark-whole-in-viral-video-12587<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/goliath-grouper-swallows-a-4-ft-shark-whole-in-viral-video-12587'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/decebdf8bc20062517190e951bc878c4-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p>A fisherman off the coast of Florida recorded a goliath grouper swallowing a 4-foot shark in a single bite in a video that has now gone viral.</p> <h1> Goliath Grouper Swallows 4-ft Shark Whole</h1> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/O37HI_AX9nY?rel=0" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>The fisherman in the video had just caught a four-foot black tip shark in Bonita Springs, FL, when the <a href="http://abcnews.go.com/US/massive-goliath-grouper-snatches-shark-single-bite/story?id=25076840" target="_blank">goliath grouper</a> made itself known. Just as the shark was approaching the side of the boat, the giant fish emerged from the water, opening its jaws, and disappeared just as quickly, leaving nothing in its wake.</p> <p>Goliath groupers populate the Florida coastal waters, though they are far from common. Known as predators, goliath groupers can grow up to 800 pounds, measuring over 8 feet in length. According to the Florida Museum of Natural History, goliath groupers typically eat lobsters, shrimps, octopus and other fishes, and prefer to consume their food in one bite.</p> <p>“Prey is ambushed, caught with a quick rush and snap of the jaws. The sharp teeth are adapted for seizing prey and preventing escape although most prey is simply engulfed and <a href="http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/fish/gallery/descript/goliathgrouper/goliathgrouper.html" target="_blank">swallowed whole</a>,” states the Florida Museum of Natural History.</p> <p>It’s not uncommon for goliath groupers to take their food from a fisherman’s reel. Once close to endangered, it is illegal for fisherman to catch and kill goliath groupers, but goliath groupers have been increasing in number, and stealing more potential catches from fishermen.</p> <p>“We have goliaths taking legal grouper and snapper right off our lines, over and over – lobsters too. <a href="http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2014/07/goliath-grouper/holland-text" target="_blank">It’s such a waste</a>,” <strong>Jim Thomas</strong>, a commercial fisherman, told <em>National Geographic</em>.</p>Fri, 22 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/1j5x4bwwzjbnt/hjd7k2s8e5cgo/k8pptb18cpww8880/2zf4p27ulo8/2imq9amt72gwcs/c8l26tqso8/1vdio5aujk80g40c<![CDATA[Kent Brantly And Nancy Writebol, American Missionaries, Cured Of Ebola, Released From Hospital]]>http://uinterview.com/news/kent-brantly-and-nancy-writebol-american-missionaries-cured-of-ebola-released-from-hospital-12586<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/kent-brantly-and-nancy-writebol-american-missionaries-cured-of-ebola-released-from-hospital-12586'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/9544def95ada817d7be4eea7a26e7ced-150x150.jpg' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p>Dr. <strong>Kent Brantly </strong>and <strong>Nancy Writebol</strong>, two<strong> </strong>American medical missionaries, successfully fought off the Ebola virus and have been discharged from Emory University Hospital.</p> <h1> American Aid Workers Discharged After Ebola Scare</h1> <p><a href="http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-nn-american-doctor-ebola-20140821-story.html" target="_blank">Brantly was released </a>from the Atlanta hospital Thursday after Writebol’s release on Tuesday, reported the <em>Los Angeles Times. </em>Though Writebol declined to meet with the press due to her ongoing recovery, Brantly participated in a news conference upon his release while standing beside his wife <strong>Amber Brantley.</strong></p> <p>“God saved my life.

On July 28, at 1 a.m., officers were called to the scene of a disturbance outside the home of <strong>Keith Capo</strong>. Capo claims that Couch, standing next to Capo’s neighbor, threatened him with a gun, days after Capo and his neighbor had had a disagreement. According to the North Richland Hills Police, Couch falsely identified himself as a reserve officer for Lakeside, a neighboring community, when pressed by the police.</p> <p>“Couch reached into his vehicle and took out his wallet, displaying what appeared to be a police badge and identification card, <a href="http://www.nbcdfw.com/news/local/Frederick-Couch-Father-of-Affluenza-Teen-Ethan-Couch-Arrested-for-Impersonating-Police-Officer-271900031.html" target="_blank">suggesting he was a police officer,</a>” said the North Richland Hills Police.</p> <p>Couch presented the cops with a Lakeside ID and police badge that appeared legitimate, so the cops let him go. However, one of the officers had previously worked at Lakeside PD and, suspicious of Couch’s credentials, attempted to verify Couch’s story. After doing a bit of research, the officers quickly found that Couch had never been a licensed officer, nor had he ever been involved with the Lakeside PD. A warrant was soon issued for his arrest, and Couch was taken into police custody Tuesday.</p> <p><script type="text/javascript" charset="UTF-8" src="http://www.nbcdfw.com/portableplayer/?cmsID=271946381&videoID=QwkR4x_TxfQd&origin=nbcdfw.com&sec=news&subsec=local&width=600&height=360"></script></p> <p>Couch has been charged with <a href="http://www.myfoxdfw.com/story/26319287/ethan-couchs-father-arrested-for-impersonating-police-officer" target="_blank">False Identification as a Police Officer</a> and Misrepresentation of Property.

Vasquez told US District Judge <strong>Alvin Hellerstein</strong> that he <a href="http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/shakira-loca-rip-off-song-judge-article-1.1911198" target="_blank">shared “Loca con su Tiguera” with El Cata</a> in 2006 or 2007 when the two singers met outside a studio in the Dominican Republic. Bello denies the two ever met, and claims he wrote the song about his ex-wife.</p> <p>Eventually, the song found it’s way to Shakira, who recorded her own version with El Cata.</p> <p>“She [Shakira] told me, ‘You have something that makes me move.’ I told her it was the percussion, and I said, ‘Those sounds that you want, I have them in my studio,’” <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/17/arts/music/17shakira.html?pagewanted=all&_r=2&" target="_blank">El Cata said</a> of their collaboration in 2010.</p> <p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="169" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/XAhTt60W7qo?rel=0" width="300"></iframe></p> <p>“There is no dispute that Shakira’s version of the song was based on Bello’s version. Accordingly, I find that, since Bello had copied Arias, whoever wrote Shakira’s version of the song also <a href="http://www.billboard.com/articles/news/6221982/shakira-illegally-copied-song-sony-damages" target="_blank">indirectly copied Arias</a>,” wrote the judge.</p> <h1> Sony ATV Latin To Pay Damages</h1> <p>Shakira, who is a bilingual artist, released both English and Spanish versions of the song, but the copyright claim focused on the Spanish version. As a result, Judge Hellerstein dismissed Sony Corporation and Sony Music parent companies as defendants, but found Sony ATV Latin and Sony/ATV Discos responsible as the labels that distributed the Spanish track. A new lawsuit, to take place before the end of the year, will determine the amount of damages owed.</p> <p>Shakira herself was not directly involved in the suit, and the singer has not commented on the case.</p>Thu, 21 Aug 2014 00:00:00 -0400http://uinterview.com/feed/1j5x4bwwzjbnt/hjd7k2s8e5cgo/k8pptb18cpww8880/2zf4p27ulo8/2imq9amt72gwcs/c8l26tqso8/2xw1jxf7sqqsc<![CDATA[Hafthor Bjornsson, Who Plays The Mountain On 'Game Of Thrones,' Wins Europe's Strongest Man Competition]]>http://uinterview.com/news/hafthor-bjornsson-who-plays-the-mountain-on-game-of-thrones-wins-europes-strongest-man-competition-12576<div align='center'><a href='http://uinterview.com/news/hafthor-bjornsson-who-plays-the-mountain-on-game-of-thrones-wins-europes-strongest-man-competition-12576'><img src='http://uinterview.com/images/uinterview/news/cc44f411a7be6e1ce34ba39164a2645e-150x150.png' alt='' align='left' /></a></div><p><strong>Hafthor Bjornsson</strong>, the<strong> </strong><em>Games of Thrones</em> actor, proved he’s nearly as mighty in real life as his onscreen persona “The Mountain” Gregor Clegane when he became Europe’s Strongest Man.</p> <h1> The Mountain Is Europe's Strongest Man</h1> <p>Earlier this month, Bjornsson – whose nickname is Thor – bested the rest of the competition at Europe’s Strongest Man 2014 that was held in Leeds, England.
