Charles And Camilla Attacked By Protestors

Charles And Camilla Attacked By Protestors - Prince Charles and his wife Camilla got quite a shock on their way to a gala variety show in central London yesterday when the Rolls-Royce they were in was attacked by protestors fighting against a University tuition hike.

The group of protestors got a little too close for comfort and actually smashed one of the windows or the royals’ vehicle. On top of the smashed window, the group of individuals splattered paint all over the car and yelled “off with their heads” as they continued to vandalize the property.

Luckily Prince Charles and Camilla both made it through the incident unharmed (thanks to security) and proceeded to the gala where they tried their best to act like nothing had happened. Camilla sipped back a stiff Brandy and tried to put on a brave face for guests but was visibly shaken by the incident, say witnesses at the party. On the way home, the Prince and his wife rode in an armored police van to ensure complete protection.

So what exactly made these individuals so angry that they felt the need to personally attack the man next in line to be King?

These activists – along with thousands of other students – are understandably angry over the government’s move to triple tuition fees to 9,000 pounds (14,000 US dollars) per year.

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…
