Unemployment Extension Update 4

Unemployment Extension Update 4 - US Congress has reinstated the previously approved extensions for Americans receiving unemployment benefits. The extension does not add to the 99 weeks that had been approved but does allow anyone who is unemployed to start receiving the remaining benefits that were stopped on November 30, 2010.

Hoosiers need to go to the Claimant Self Service Uplink and sign in to see what vouchers have been posted to their homepage. Starting December 19, 2010, vouchers will populate and should be filled out completely to start receiving unemployment benefits again. Hoosiers who qualify for retroactive benefits may begin filling out the missing vouchers for any weeks that were missing since unemployment benefits were halted on November 30, 2010.

It is highly likely that this will be the final approved unemployment benefits that will exceed the normal unemployment benefits that are approved from base period earnings for someone who is laid off or becomes unemployed through no fault of their own.

It is imperative for Hoosiers to be aware of what tier of unemployment they are on and how many weeks left they have before they have utilized all unemployment benefit extensions. Whether looking at retraining in a new field or taking classes to enhance or change a career path, having income lined up before running out of unemployment benefits will be crucial to being able to support a family.

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…
