Natural Disasters of 2010

Natural Disasters of 2010 - Nature seems to have risen in recent times. And is that more than 220,000 people have been killed worldwide so far in 2010 as a result of natural disasters. The last one arrived on Wednesday with the earthquake of 7.1 degrees on the Richter scale that has left over 400 dead and 10,000 wounded in the western Chinese province of Qinghai. This is the third major earthquake recorded in just four months.

The largest of these occurred just opened 2010. An earthquake of 7 degrees shook Haiti killing at least 217,000 dead, a figure estimated to amount to 300,000 when fully completed work to clear debris. Two months after the tragedy, some 300,000 people are still recovering from his wounds and some three million victims try to rebuild their lives in the poorest country of America.

The incalculable damage were linked, rather than the force of the earthquake itself, the location of the epicenter, near Port au Prince, where nearly a quarter of the country’s population, and the poor quality of buildings in the area.

But it would be more than a month later, on February 27, when record the movement of soil from greater intensity of these first months of the year. The earthquake in Chile reached 8.8 degrees, making it the fifth worst in history. The consequences could even, according to experts, to modify the Earth’s axis to shorten the length of day at 1.26 microseconds and to alter the geographic position of cities in Chile and Argentina.

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…
