Things you need to know on September 16.
Thanks to MetroNews Source and the Danbury News Times for the following.
- Connecticut mourns the passing of one of it's own. Subway co-founder, 67 year old Fred DeLuca died Monday, two years after he was diagnosed with leukemia, according to a company spokeswoman. The business started when DeLuca, who grew up in Bridgeport, opened his first sandwich shop in the city in 1965 with a $1,000 loan from Peter Buck of Danbury.
- Scott Gellatly is admitting to the murder of his wife inside the Oxford home of her parents last year. As part of a plea agreement, Gellatly will be sentenced to 45 years in prison at a later date. Lori Gellatly had a restraining order against her husband at the time of her death.
- How often do you read a post on Facebook and think I can't "like" this? Problem solved. Mark Zuckerberg has announced that the site is working on a "dislike" button. Zuckerberg explained that, up to this point, Facebook has been reluctant to add a "dislike" feature because it didn't want to create an environment where users were "voting up or down" on others' posts.
- Told you nothing really ever disappears! Photos and videos that were seemingly long gone after being viewed on Snapchat can now be retrieved for a price. Snapchat's new update includes a pay-for-recall feature letting users pay a dollar to watch three previously-viewed "snaps". Once the content is recovered it can still only be viewed once before disappearing. The replay feature has been free for almost two years but only allowed one photo or video to be resurrected.
