In today’s EOD roundup, Clarissa Explains It All creator Mitchell Kriegman is writing a where-is-she-now book about Clarissa Darling: “The novel will follow a 23-year-old Clarissa as she tries to crave out a career as a journalist and deals with the obstacles toward becoming a real adult.” If Clarissa doesn’t have a blog, live in a converted loft in Williamsburg/Bushwick, and still hang out with Sam who works in the Park Slope co-op and brews his own kombucha, I’ll eat my bowler hat.

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz has spent much of the past few months fighting Washington policies. Finally, he seems to be taking a step back from convincing 100 other CEOs to curb campaign donations and taking out full page newspaper ads. For the first time in a while, he’s talking about Starbucks again. And how its future is not necessarily in coffee.

Starbucks is raising the prices of its packaged coffee by 17 %, but it’s not CEO Howard Schultz’s fault. Really, he doesn’t want to be blamed.
Schultz says the price upticks are due to speculation on the part of…coffee price speculators…saying that the price of coffee will reach a 34-year high. The change will take effect by July, on top of the 12% increases that already came in March.
According to Consumerist, Schultz really doesn’t want you to think it’s his, or Starbucks’ fault. Right, because Starbucks coffee has never been overpriced.

Starbucks’ net income may have climbed 20 percent during the second quarter, according to Seeking Alpha, but that doesn’t mean that CEO Howard Schultz is feeling optimistic.
Schultz warned investors that he expects to see fuel and dairy costs continue to climb in the coming months — and said that could be a big problem for the coffee titan.
Although he cheered Starbucks’ stability in recent weeks, despite “formidable economic and operating headwinds that continue to confront global businesses,” Schultz’s bearishness was enough to send shareholders into a tizzy — Starbucks saw shares drop 64 cents following the news, down to $36.55.
