The Minnesota Twins' Target Field will be one of the first sports venues in the country to introduce DraftServ's beer vending machines, which will reduce the long lines at concession stands, help regulate alcohol consumption, and give attendees more choice when it comes to what they're drinking.

Customers first need to visit a manned register and show ID in order to purchase a pre-paid debit card in $10, $20, or $50 amounts. They're then free to visit the DraftServ vending machines whenever they like, and choose one of four different beers ranging in price from 0.38 cents per ounce for Bud Light, to 0.40 cents per ounce for a pale ale.

Publimetro is the Latin American branch of the Swedish Metro media company (no relation to UK's Metro). What you're looking at here is indeed their coverage of the escalating conflict on the Gaza strip plastered with a full-page ad for the newest Transformers movie. Perhaps Publimetro has the scoop on Israel's "Iron Dome" defense system (ACTUALLY AN AUTOBOT, PERHAPS IRONHIDE) or maybe it's some kind of ironic commentary on the commoditization of war... or maybe it's just a sad statement about the struggles of print media in a digital age.

Point is, let's never mix real life-threatening missiles and Michael Bay missiles ever again, shall we?
