It’s 7 a.m., 54° and headed to 67°. Details for the next 10 days are here.

Beware the for-profit company living off of unpaid interns. Pro Publica reports that the Labor Department has stepped in on a case involving the Hearst Corporation.

In the brief, the department urges the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to adopt a narrower interpretation of the federal standard governing when for-profit employers may legally hire unpaid interns. The Labor Department expresses particular concern that the sluggish economy has made “the promise of free labor…both tempting and available,” allowing unpaid internships to proliferate.

And thank you to Rowland and Pat Rebele for the Rebele Digital and Print Journalism Internship Program. Mission Local will be getting two Stanford students this year thanks to their generous internship fund.

Uber adds delivery service, reports Valley Wag. Oh why is this beginning to sound like the last dot-com boom?

Meanwhile Bernalwood does an update on real estate prices in its neighborhood and finds the average sales price at $1.2 million. 

Enjoy the day!
