Search Continues For Jeni Lynn Watson

Search Continues For Jeni Lynn Watson - Police in two states are searching for a missing Mercyhurst College student. The 20-year-old junior left the school in Erie last Thursday to drive home, only to vanish several hours later.

New York State Police say Jenni-Lyn Watson came home from college for Thanksgiving. She was home visiting her family when she disappeared Friday morning.

Tuesday, search and rescue crews searched on the ground and in the air, pinpointing the area which her cell phone had its final activity. Investigators said they received a signal from a heavily wooded area in Liverpool, N.Y.

"It's completely unlike her," said next door neighbor Stacey Kinahan. "She's a ballerina, a wonderful student, keeps in touch with her family and loves her family. It's very out of character for her not to contact anybody,"

Her friends are doing what they can to help in the search.

A Facebook page setup received thousands of members in less than 48 hours. Many of her friends have changed their profile picture to that of Jenni-Lyn in an effort to bring the case attention and get the word out.

The Facebook posts are working. Dozens of people have been showing up to pass out fliers in her hometown, and others have been spreading the online search across upstate New York and Pennsylvania.

An advertising company is using its electronic billboards to post Watson's picture at seven locations in the Syracuse area, as well as one in Buffalo and one in Albany.

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, GatorUpdates.com 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…
