Augusta, GA -

Time to take a look at What's Trending......

Students at a California college are pushing to ban tobacco products on campus.
Their message....."no e-cigarettes, no messaging, no tobacco products on campus at all."...and that includes chewing tobacco.
While some students say they want a total ban.
A few students say a total ban might be too much, suggesting that there should be designated smoke areas.
The schools president will make the final decision on whether to implement the ban.

Smartphones are everywhere and now people are using that easy access to post what's known as Funeral selfies---there's even a tumblr blog dedicated to them. Selfies snapped before and after memorial services, by what was called in one article, the young and seemingly clueless.  We saw one that read "love my hair today. Hate why I'm dressed up. Hashtag Funeral." Some argue that grief should be kept quiet but others say its cathartic to grieve on social media.

Who works more? Men or Women? A new study says, when you include unpaid work around the home, it's not even close.
Researchers say while men work longer hours at paid jobs, women do a lot more cooking, cleaning, and child-rearing. Researchers found in the 22 out of 28 developed countries, women put in the longest hours every week.

An ATM in California is putting out 50 dollar bills rather then 20's....
Some Bank of America customers say the A-T-M is paying out better than any slot machine in Vegas.
The bank won't say how much money was taken or why it happened.
They only released a statement saying it was an isolated situation and they fixed it as soon as they found out.
Bank of America has video and personal information on everybody who took money from that a-t-m over the weekend.
Representatives say they plan to work with customers on an individual basis, to get their money back.
