Victoria's Secret Black Friday

Victoria's Secret Black Friday - Numerous retailers are projecting a better holiday season than last year. The National Retail Federation has forecast November and December holiday sales will increase by 2.3 percent from a year ago. This increase is the largest since 2006.

San Diego-based Cricket Communications is one of those companies hoping for a rewarding holiday season. A local executive for Cricket said Blackberry and Android smart phones will continue to top holiday gift lists this year. The local wireless firm said it expects to attract more customers than last year.

A spokesman for Walmart told Patch its customers are excited for Friday. Steven Restivo, a Walmart spokesman, said while the big-box retailer will have some great deals this week, its focus is on providing value to customers right up until Christmas Day.

"One of the big differentials for us this year is our 'price match' guarantee where we will price match competitors' ads on Black Friday," said Restivo. "Customers simply bring in competitors' ads and Walmart will match the price of any identical product right at the register."

The majority of Walmart stores will be open on Thanksgiving and stay open right into Friday; all others will open at midnight.

Making a plan is the best way to find the best deals on Black Friday. Keep your eyes and ears open for commercials and scour the Internet for the best sales and the best times to visit your favorite shops.

Old Navy in Fashion Valley is actually open on Thanksgiving Day. Bath & Body Works, Victoria's Secret and Disney open at midnight Friday in that location. JCPenney opens at 3 a.m., followed by Macy's at 4 a.m.

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.

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…
