Unemployment Extension Update

Unemployment Extension Update - The latest twist in the saga over extending unemployment benefits, illustrates Democratic displeasure with the bill. The current proposal aim to extend Bush-era tax rates and offers an extension of unemployment benefits. Both are seen as key legislative victories for each party.

Unemployment Benefits Extension 2010: Tier 5 Extension Will not Help 99ers - The unemployment benefit extension for level 5 that will involve the 99ers is the talk of the town today in the internet. Apparently, Vice President Joe Biden has recently talked with the House Republicans and Democrats to keen with a deal that will allow the Congress to pass another year of unemployment benefits in exchange of a 2-year tax cut for big enterprises and high earning individuals.

Republicans are saying that Democrats fail to get genuine solutions to the issue of unemployment extension and Tier 5, while Democrats says that Republicans are blocking these solutions. The fact is that almost all of these politicians are paid heavily, earned a lot and care less about what ordinary people actually feel or experience in their everyday lives. It could have been easier if Democrats did win majority of Congress last mid-term elections but corporate power and the rich would not allow them to just give unemployment extension benefits to unemployed.
President Obama’s administration continues to try to drum up support for the framework agreement it announced earlier this week that includes an extension of federal unemployment benefits and an across-the-board extension of Bush-era tax cuts for two years.

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…
