>Candy flavored ice cream
White Rabbit, the iconic Chinese milk candy, is now a popular ice cream flavor in the US. Wanderlust Creamery, a Los Angeles-based ice cream shop started serving White Rabbit ice cream as a Chinese New Year special at the beginning of February. The ice cream is made with dissolved pieces of the iconic White Rabbit candy. With its intensely milky flavor, it encapsulates childhood reminiscence for many Asian Americans and has been selling out like crazy. Wanderlust Creamery has announced that it will keep it on the menu this month. However, the candy maker, Shanghai Guan Sheng Yuan Food Co Ltd, said on Saturday that it has never granted rights to any person or company to produce White Rabbit ice cream, and it's investigating if the American ice cream shop is infringing its patents.

>Smoking banned at venues
The organizers of the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics announced that smoking will not be permitted at any venue during 2020 events, including heated tobacco products and other vaping devices. Smoking will be outlawed at all indoor and outdoor Olympic and Paralympic venues, including perimeter areas run by the Tokyo Games. The prohibition is tougher than regulations for the last two Summer Olympics in London and Rio de Janeiro. Organizers said the measures were adopted to "protect the health and safety of athletes, spectators and officials". While all sites with spectators will be completely smoke-free, sites without spectators such as the Athletes' Village are considered nonsmoking in principle but will allow smoking in designated areas.

>Airlines spy on passengers
Three of the world's biggest airlines have admitted some of their planes have cameras installed on the backs of passenger seats. American Airlines, United Airlines and Singapore Airlines have new seat-back entertainment systems that include cameras. They could also be on planes used by other carriers. A passenger on a Singapore flight tweeted a photograph last week of the seat-back display, prompting other air travelers to voice concerns about their privacy at 30,000 ft. Vitaly Kamluk, who photographed the camera on his flight, suggested that carriers should cover the lenses with stickers and said it would be easy for airlines to monitor passengers with them. Companies that make the entertainment systems are fitting them with cameras to offer passengers options such as seat-to-seat video conferencing, according to an American Airlines spokesman.



>Inactivity ages the brain
Driving for more than two hours a day negatively affects IQ levels, scientists have warned. In what might come as unwelcome news for middle-aged commuters, a recent study found that long periods behind the wheel could speed up the effects of age on the brain. The researchers said that the results could be explained by the fact that the mind is less active on long car journeys. Previous studies have found that long periods of inactivity have a detrimental affect on brainpower and research shows similar results for those who watched more than two hours of television a day.
