Anne Hatch Commits Suicide

Anne Hatch Commits Suicide - A Minnesota politician’s daughter who faced trial here following a highly publicized dustup with Chicago Police officers outside a North Side nightclub committed suicide in her Michigan Avenue home, authorities said Monday.

Anne Hatch, 27, was the daughter of former Minnesota Attorney General Mike Hatch, who ran for governor of Minnesota in 2006.

She was found dead in her apartment at 535 N. Michigan just before 5 p.m. Sunday, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

An autopsy confirmed she died of hanging. A source said no note was found.

Anne Hatch and her sister, Elizabeth, were arrested in 2004 for allegedly slapping two police officers after being kicked out of the Crobar nightclub during Anne Hatch’s 21st birthday party.

The sisters were found not guilty of misdemeanor resisting arrest, battery and criminal damage to property.

Mike Hatch served as Minnesota’s attorney general from 1999 to 2007. He now practices law for a Minnesota-based law firm.

The Hatch family issued a statement Monday saying Anne Hatch “died unexpectedly.”

“This is a sad and painful time for our family,” the statement continued, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. “Nothing in life can prepare you for the loss of a child. We are grateful for the outpouring of support and compassion we have received from so many people. We ask that our family’s privacy be respected at this very difficult time.”

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…
