Super Saturday Deals 2010

Super Saturday Deals 2010 - Forget Black Friday. KELOLAND retailers are hoping Saturday is the busiest shopping day of the year. Crowds filled the Empire Mall in Sioux Falls on super Saturday.

"The weather is cooperating and it's getting close to Christmas," said Vendor Susan Moret.

This is Moret's fourth year selling kiosk candy. She says business has been steady coming into the weekend.

People know See's Candy, so they stop by. It isn't hard to sell," Moret said.

And stores don't seem to be having a problem selling either. Empire Mall officials say so far business is trending up, even with a few bumps from Mother Nature.

"It's Super Saturday, so it's the last Saturday before Christmas. So we know it's going to be big because of that combined with people who didn't get here last weekend. We're predicting it's going to be huge," said Empire Mall Marketing Manager Chrissy Spoo.

Last week's storm did put a damper on many people's Christmas shopping plans. It's forced them to last-minute shopper status. They didn't seem to mind though many people did come early to be the crowds.

"We came right off 41st Street and went to Target. It wasn't bad, but we were here at 8 this morning though," said Erin Reinicke, who drove from madison to take in the deals. She planned to leave before the halls filled up even more.

"We know a lot of people did their big Black Friday sale, held off for a couple of weeks and are now doing huge discounts all over the mall this weekend," Spoo said.

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…
