I?m annoyed with Gatorade. And, the slumping sales figures demonstrate that I?m not the only one. Ever since Gatorade felt the need to change its labeling and branding and add new products to the mix, sales have been heading downhill like the Boston Marathon course?or Obama?s job approval numbers?or mortgage rates?pick your analogy.

I read from the Glendale News Press today:
The Center for Science in the Public Interest, in its January/February "Nutrition Action HealthLetter", ranked vegetables so that YOU can max out on any health benefits when you go GREEN.
What we also love about the article is that it provides the reasons as to why you should eat vegetables.
I love this little blurb that I read in the April 2010 issue of Cooking Light Magazine:
When UCLA researchers stuck salad bars in three elementary schools, they found that fruit and veggie consumption rose roughly 25 percent--a sign that poor eating habits at school may in part be the fault of poor selection, not resistance to fresh food.
In July of last year we reported that several states were attempting to regulate yoga teacher training programs. (Read the post here.)
Today, I New York State said "NO" to such efforts. Governor David Patterson exempted yoga teacher training programs from state regulations overseeing vocational training programs.
Why do we care?
I remember in Driver's Ed class learning the "official" bike turn signals: arm outstretched straight = left turn; arm in an "L" position (right angle at the elbow, fingers pointing to the sky) = right turn. BUT TRUST ME, most automobile drivers (and many bicyclists for that matter) are not going to remember what an "L" arm signal means! Clearly, some government official decided that the signal for right turn had to be different than left turn without considering the realities of the road.
