Russian Brewer Buys Pabst Blue Ribbon

A Russian brewer is taking over American icon Pabst Blue Ribbon.

Oasis Beverages, which is based in Russia, said on Friday it’s signed a deal to acquire Pabst Brewing Company, which is headquartered in Los Angeles.

Pabst traces its roots to 1844 and owns a number of well-known American beer brands, including Pabst Blue Ribbon, Old Milwaukee, Schlitz and the malt liquor Colt 45. It recently resurrected one of the most popular beers of the mid twentieth century, Ballantine India Pale Ale.

Oasis, which also has brewing operations in Ukraine, Belarus and Kazakhstan, did not disclose the terms of the deal, except to say that the investment company TSG Consumer Partners has a minority stake.

Oasis said it will not change any of the Pabst brands.

“There are definitely NO plans to change any of the recipes of the brands,” said an Oasis staffer, in an email to CNNMoney. “The entire team at Pabst including the Head Brewer Greg Deuhs will continue to focus on maintaining the classic recipes and consistent quality of all Pabst products. NO CHANGES WHATSOEVER.”

Toyota Recalls 20K Vehicles for Possible Fuel Leak

Toyota Motor Corp said on Thursday it will recall about 20,000 vehicles worldwide for possible fuel leaks. Most of the affected vehicles are in the United States but were also shipped to other countries, Toyota said. Toyota Motor Sales USA said the recall involves vehicles with its 2GR-FE engine.

The recall includes the 2015 model year Lexus RX, and four 2014 model year Toyota vehicles: Avalon, Camry, Highlander and Sienna. Lexus is Toyota’s luxury brand. A fuel delivery pipe in the engine may leak because it was not correctly welded by a Toyota supplier company, the automaker said. This could lead to a leak, which could increase the risk of fire. Toyota said it was not aware of any fires, crashes, injuries or fatalities caused by the problem.

Apple and it’s iOS 8 Screws Police and Spying Government “We can’t, won’t unlock devices for Police”

Even cops with a warrant to pull private user data off of someone’s fancy new iPhone or iPad might be out of luck—Apple says that with the release of iOS 8, it’s now not physically possible for even the company itself to access that info, reports the Washington Post.

In an open letter posted yesterday on the Apple website, CEO Tim Cook explains the company’s commitment to customer privacy, facilitated by a new encryption process that will hopefully keep at bay attacks like the recent celebrity nude-photo hack (which, incidentally, Apple says wasn’t its fault).

On one point Cook is especially firm: “[We] have never worked with any government agency from any country to create a backdoor in any of our products or services. We have also never allowed access to our servers. And we never will.” The passcode that protects all those emails, texts, pictures, and related content on Apple devices—retrievable only by the owner—effectively lets Apple off the hook if it’s served with a search warrant.

The 20 Most Underrated Party Schools In The United States [POLL]

For every big school that winds up on the Princeton Review’s over-hyped list, there are three smaller schools who rage equally as hard, if not harder. Why aren’t they recognized? Why aren’t they loved? As big fans of both underdogs and partying here at COED, we’re happy to announce that once again we’re putting the spotlight on the 20 Most Underrated Party Schools in the United States.

To qualify as an underrated party school, a few things need to happen. First, and most importantly, you need to party. All the schools you see here have student bodies fully committed to the weekends. Second, people need to be talking about how ratchet your ragers get. If people aren’t Tweeting about your parties, you’re not doing it right. Finally, we’re not taking into account the difficulty of curriculum at the schools. There are more than a few institutions on this list that are hard to get into. There are also some that are very easy to get into.

You’ve all had plenty of time in 2013-2014 to leave your mark on the college world, so without further delay here’s our list for the 20 Most Underrated Party Schools in the United States.

Ben Affleck BANNED FOR LIFE from Hard Rock Casino Las Vegas

Ben Affleck just confirmed TMZ’s story that he was kicked out of the Hard Rock Casino for counting cards in blackjack … but he says the casino really is just a sore loser because there’s nothing wrong with it.

Affleck told Details Magazine, “I took some time to learn the game and became a decent blackjack player. And once I became decent, the casinos asked me not to play blackjack.”

TMZ broke the story in May … Ben’s been banned for life from the blackjack tables at the Hard Rock because security caught him counting cards, but fact is … it’s not illegal. Really, it’s just kind of awesome.

Notorious Ex-Cocaine Kingpin George Jung Out of Prison, Living In San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — A man so notorious a movie was made about his life just walked out of prison.

Former cocaine kingpin George Jung is now in San Francisco where he will finish serving his sentence.

You might not know the name George Jung at first, but perhaps this will jog your memory.

In the 2001 film Blow, Johnny Depp portrays Jung, a notorious drug smuggler.

Jung spent the past 20 years behind bars but TMZ spotted him at San Francisco International Airport.

They asked him what was his first meal when he got out of prison.

“Clam chowder,” said Jung.

TMZ said Jung will be living in a San Francisco halfway house.

“Life’s a rodeo and all you have to do is stay in the saddle,” Jung told TMZ. “I’m back in the saddle again.”

Just like that, the man responsible for 85% of the cocaine smuggled into the United States in the 1970s and 80s walked out of SFO, a free man.

As a cocaine kingpin, Jung specialized in smuggling drugs from Colombia. The feds finally arrested him in 1994 after catching him with almost a ton of cocaine in Kansas.

Porn Gets its Own Search Engine

You ever go online and think, Wow, there’s just not enough access to adult material here? Yeah, us neither.

In any case, a Los Angeles startup, Boodigo (yeah, Boodigo), announced this week that it has launched as “the first adult-oriented search engine that takes users straight to the online action … with no tracking, registration, cookies or hassle.”

Sounds to us like a solution in search of a problem we didn’t know existed:

The site says that mainstream search engines (Google, Bing, Yahoo) censor some adult content, allegedly giving you incomplete results.

According to Boodigo:

Unlike mainstream search engines that go out of their way to avoid adult-related results, Boodigo delves only into adult-only content at lightning-fast speed, providing customers with more useful answers to their sex and porn-related queries.

The engine says it can eliminate results from sites that are “potential security threats” and that it works to “keep unlicensed and illegal content from appearing online.”

THREE OF FIVE DETAINEES SWAPPED ARE NOW ISIS LEADERS – Obama’s Act of Treason yet unprosecuted!

Remember when Obama committed treason by bypassing Congress and swapping five high-value detainees for one American traitor? 

Remember the speech Obama gave last week telling Americans that we must take on ISIS? 

Put together the two and you have a case for charges of treason against Barack Hussein Obama. 

It is being reported that at least 3 of the 5 detainees involved in the swap have joined ISIS in Syria and Iraq as commanders and are using that rank to usher in an “Islamic Caliphate” (a Sunni Islamic Theocracy – contrary to Obama’s claims that ISIS is not Islamic). 

The “Taliban 5″ 
who were transferred from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to custody in Doha, Qatar, are Mohammad Fazl, Khairullah Khairkhwa, Abdul Haq Wasiq, Norullah Noori, and Mohammad Nabi Omari. They have largely disappeared from view since they were dropped off in Doha, but eyewitnesses place Fazi, Wasiq, and Noori in Iraq and Syria fighting with ISIS.
