"Cedar Rapids" is coming to Blu-ray and DVD this summer.

The Blu-ray and DVD of "Cedar Rapids" include such extras as deleted scenes, a gag reel, digital copy (Blu-ray only) and more. The film will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on June 21.
Fresh Step ‘scoops’ out odor
NEW YORK — Kitty litter brand Fresh Step has introduced a new product that combines natural pine shavings with the odor-control performance of activated carbon.
New Fresh Step Natural Scoop litter offers such great odor control ingredients as Fresh Step’s traditional clay-based litter, but this time with the sustainability benefits of natural wood, the company said. The new product, Fresh Step said, also weighs significantly less than the company’s clay-based litter — available in a 20-lb. box — in a bag that weighs 3.3 lbs.
New Fresh Step Natural Scoop is expected to retail for $8.99.
