ALBA, Italy (RNN) - Do you have a notion to fly across the ocean? The company that manufactures Nutella is hiring.

Ferrero is looking for amateur taste-testers, all paid, contract positions. 

The two-day-a-week job requires "sensory judges" to taste the ingredients that go into Nutella and Ferrero Rocher spreads, including cocoa and hazelnut, The Local reported.

Candidates must be everyday consumers and shouldn't have experience with the "science of taste."

Tasters mustn't have allergies and must have basic computer skills.

The 60 candidates chosen will undergo three months of training to become professionals, after which 20 tasters will be selected with an opportunity to be hired for permanent positions with the company.

Officials investigate cause of death for Colorado mom, kids

By KATHLEEN FOODY and JONATHAN DREWAssociated Press

FREDERICK, Colo. (AP) - The bodies of two young girls were submerged in crude oil for four days before authorities discovered them, according to court documents filed by an attorney defending the girls' father against accusations that he killed his children and wife.

The motion filed Friday by Christopher Watts' attorney, James Merson, also asked that DNA swabs be taken from the girls' necks. The request quotes an expert who believes the oil would not eliminate DNA and said samples can be obtained "after strangulation."

Authorities separately announced that the Weld County Coroner's Office had performed autopsies on Friday and confirmed the bodies as 34-year-old Shanann, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste Watts.

Police did not release any information about how the mother and daughters died. More testing is planned to help…

More detail in Colorado family killings expected next week

By KATHLEEN FOODY and JONATHAN DREWAssociated Press

FREDERICK, Colo. (AP) - Colorado authorities prepared Friday to file formal charges against an oil and gas worker accused of killing his pregnant wife and two young daughters inside their suburban home, then dumping their bodies on his employer's property.

Police said the mother, Shanann Watts, was found dead on property owned by Anadarko Petroleum, one of the state's largest oil and gas drillers, where 33-year-old Christopher Watts worked as an operator. Investigators found what they believe are the bodies of 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste nearby on Thursday.

The operator position generally charges employees with routine visits to oil fields, checking on the status of wells, maintaining the equipment and fixing any issues. Watts was fired on Wednesday, the same day he was arrested, the company said.

AP Source: Soul icon Aretha Franklin is seriously ill

By MESFIN FEKADUAP Music Writer

NEW YORK (AP) - Fans and friends, including Mariah Carey and Missy Elliott, offered prayers and well wishes to Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin, who is seriously ill.

A person close to Franklin, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the person was not allowed to publicly talk about the topic, told The Associated Press on Monday that the singer is seriously ill. No more details were provided.

Carey, who considers Franklin one of her biggest influences, wrote on Twitter that she is "praying for the Queen of Soul." Missy Elliott said that the public has to celebrate iconic artists before they die.

"So many (of them) have given us decades of Timeless music," the rapper wrote on Twitter.

Google can track your location in ways you may not expect. But y

(RNN) – Even though Google gives you the option to switch off a “Location History” tracker, the company will still store location data based on your use of some Google apps, such as Maps, according to an Associated Press report.

The AP said it was able to track a Princeton researcher’s location over a period of days, even though he had the “Location History” setting on “pause,” Google’s way of saying it’s off.

That's because while “Location History” might be turned off, another setting allows Google to save location data. If turned on, “Web & App Activity,” will tag data points with a location, the AP reported.

The AP reported that the data was stored through a number of avenues on a Google user information panel, myactivity.google.com.

The data is not public - only visible to the account holder when signed in. But Google can use the information to help build user profiles valuable to advertisers.

The AP did not explain in detail where th…
