Audi A6 Sneak Peek

Audi A6 Sneak Peek - One change that owners of the current-generation Audi A6 can appreciate about the new car is the 2012 A6's revised door pulls allowing people to grab from both above and below the handle. Otherwise, from what we can tell from this out-of-focus video, the A6 will offer large twin five-spoke wheels and vaguely resemble the new A8. A big, chrome-lined grille and LED daytime running lights will be part of the package, as well.

The new A7 Sportback's 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 making 300 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque will no doubt be offered as an option in the A6. Currently, the outgoing A6 offers a 3.2-liter V-6, a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 (300 horsepower, 310 pound-feet of torque), and a 4.2-liter V-8.

Fuel economy should improve from the current car, which starts at 21/30 mpg city/highway in front-wheel-drive 3.2-liter V-6 form and 18/26 mpg with the 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 and all-wheel drive. A bit later, a hybrid A6 is expected to launch. Before that happens, though, you can keep it right here for all your Geneva updates until the show starts in March.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
