    Christian Rudder, co-founder of the free online dating site OKCupid, has been compiling statistics on his website to try and determine which factors influence relationship styles.  Rudder, a Harvard graduate, started his site in 2004 and more recently took a statistical approach to compatibility by analyzing profiles and interactions between hundreds of millions of users.

    Labatt's most recognizable color may soon switch from blue to green.  Labatt Blue may be the number one selling Canadian beer in the world, but the brewers move to a completely green facility is what is making headlines recently.  Labatt Canada's Edmonton brewery recently celebrated the fact it recycles 97.5 percent of what the brewery uses to make beer.
