How's the Dollar Doing

How's the Dollar Doing - It seems that the world dominant currency has not been doing so great lately. The value of the dollar depends on a number of things: the treasury notes, the exchange rates and the amount of American money belonging to foreign countries. Considering these numbers and the following facts, we can only conclude that the future does not look so great for the American currency.

The US debt is over 13 trillion, which causes taxes to raise and economic development to slow down. There are voices who claim that the American government wants the dollar to go down in order to diminish the relative value of this enormous debt. The euro zone is also confronted with a lot of issues; but the demand for euro is increasing, as many countries want to join the European Union every year. This is why the US dollar seems to lose the combat with its European counterpart. Likewise, as the US dollar seems to be falling down, investors seem to be afraid of keeping their assets in dollars.

How's the Dollar Doing

In times of deep economical crisis, people all over the world are searching for safe investments, to secure their savings. Instead of trying to strike a profitable deal on the stock market, more and more people want to invest in tangible assets which can offer them stability. The growing inflation and the weakening of the US dollar made the price of gold to reach an all-time high.

The demand for gold is growing, but its quantity is limited; the gold supply already fails to meet the demands coming from individual investors, governments and funds. If you want to make a smart investment in times of recession, think of buying gold sovereigns coins, big bars, e-gold or gold mining stocks. If all else fails, gold can never lose its entire value. It can be stored at home or at the bank, in special vaults.

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…
