Body Found On Mt Baldy

Body Found On Mt Baldy - After scouring Mt. Baldy for days, search crews Wednesday found a body believed to be that of a hiker who went missing over the weekend.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said a rescue team member spotted what authorities believe to be the body of Michelle Yu, an experienced 49-year-old hiker from Venice. Crews found the body northwest of the mountain, in a steep, cold and unforgiving area void of vegetation, said Jodi Miller, a public information officer with the Sheriff’s Department.

“The area is extremely treacherous,” Miller said. “It’s very, very steep.”

Although authorities believe the body is Yu, officials are still waiting for positive identification. The identification and cause of death will be determined by the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.

Because of the terrain, crews could not remove the body Wednesday evening but plan to do so early Thursday.

Yu’s roommate reported her missing Sunday, when she failed to return home. Yu signed the log book at the Sierra Hut Trail head about 8:30 a.m. Saturday. She planned to hike Baldy Peak and then walk to Baldy Notch, where she would take the ski lift down the mountain.

U.S. Forest Service officials found Yu’s vehicle near the intersection of Mt. Baldy and Falls roads. Dozens of search-and-rescue volunteers from San Bernardino, Los Angeles and San Diego counties searched for Yu for days.

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, 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…
