NY Blizzard Bosses Beer

NY Blizzard Bosses Beer - Did four bosses buy beer during the NYC snow disaster rather than clear away the massive piles of white stuff? On Sunday New York launched an investigation into reports that four sanitation bosses actually sat in the cars drinking beer instead of clearing away the blizzard’s aftermath.

The New York Post published an article that said that the four sanitation supervisors actually sat in their cars for hours last Monday night while they were assigned to clear away the NYC snow. If this is true, it is completely unacceptable. It makes little sense that they would do something like this? People throughout the city were counting on them to clear the roads – people’s lives and safety were at risk in New York City.

This is just the latest criticism that the New York City Department of Sanitation is dealing with over its handling of the massive blizzard that literally shut down the city last week. There are even rumors that supervisors deliberately tried to slow down the cleanup measures. That also makes little sense, but the rumors say that it was retaliation for budget cuts. Dan Halloran, a New York City Councilman, actually had sanitation workers come to him to make the allegations about the deliberate slowdown in an effort to get overtime and show the city how much they were needed. Wow, this is pretty shocking!

There are also reports that about 10% of NYC sanitation workers called in sick or used emergency during the two days after the major NYC snow storm last week. That is an unusually high number – normally 2 to 4% of the workforce is sick.

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…
