    Claire's stores nationwide have pulled nine items from store shelves after a family in Rhode Island says they found asbestos in their 6-year-old's makeup, NBC affliate WJAR reported.

    Kristi Warner said she had been concerned about the ingredients of the makeup, so she sent it to an independent lab in North Carolina.

    Test results showed tremolite asbestos was inside the glitter makeup kit, a toxic, cancer causing material.

    Warner took the results to her employer, Deaton Law Firm, which then purchased 17 more Claire's products from nine different states and sent them all in for further testing.

    [DFW] Domino's Pizza Launches Outdoor Delivery

    Domino's Pizza is tweaking its home delivery service for those times you're not at home.
    After years of delivery right to your doorstep, Domino's drivers will now deliver to outdoor locations.
    That includes beaches, parks, landmarks, and other outdoor locations across the country.
    Domino's says its drivers will deliver to 150-thousand locations from the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, to the "Welcome to Las Vegas" sign.
    The locations are now active and show up in the company's app or website as "Domino's Hotspots."
    Customers pre-pay for their orders, select a location, and your pizza is on the way.
    Previously, Domino's delivered to offbeat locations, but, the new service sets up designated drop off points.
    The service was tested last fall in Miami before being rolled out nationwide.

    Canadian lawmakers wore hockey jerseys on Monday to honor the victims and their families of that tragic bus crash in Canada that killed 16 people.
    The bus was carrying the junior league Humboldt hockey team to a game when a tractor-trailer slammed into the bus.

    Today's remembrance was one of a number of events that honored the team and their families.
