    More is better, right? Sometimes, but not always—particularly when food is concerned. Much of our nation have ready access to a wide assortment of foods. Go to any supermarket, and you will find shelves upon shelves stocked with food items. At first glance, this would seem like a good thing. I can’t think of many people who would want to live in a country whose grocery shelves are bare. Nobody wants to be hungry. As a child, I went to bed hungry some nights, and it was not a good feeling. Yes, scarcity of food is terrible. Moreover, going back in time in the United States, a poor diet used to be associated with undernutrition. Unfortunately, modern times in this country have seen the pendulum swing much too far in the other direction. Today, a poor diet indicates excess, especially excesses in calories, saturated fats, added sugars, and sodium. The Standard American Diet (S.A.D.) truly is a sorrowful pattern of food consumption. It represents the types of foods and their associated nutrient compositions that many Americans eat.  Source:...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf addressed access to abortion and protection over women’s right to choose on Wednesday morning. Wolf was joined by members of Planned Parenthood in Philadelphia, where he said abortion must remain safe and legal. “I am very angry, angry because today the right to bodily autonomy, the right that has been enshrined in law for more than a generation, is under attack,” Wolf said. “I am angry because the right to privacy is under attack. I am angry because the rights of women in this nation are under attack and I am angry because the idea at the heart of American exceptionalism, the idea that I have agency over my own life is under attack, so I am angry today.” READ MORE: Woman Runs To Firehouse For Help After Being Stabbed In Thigh During Run In Philly's Graduate Hospital Section: Police Wolf’s remarks come following a leaked draft opinion suggesting the Supreme Court may overturn Roe v.

    CHICAGO (CBS) — City officials have denied an operating permit for Southside Recycling, a controversial scrap metal recycling facility on the Southeast Side, after deeming it poses an “unacceptable risk” to health and air quality in the surrounding community. Reserve Management Group (RMG), the scrap yard’s parent company, needed a final permit from the Chicago Department of Public Health (CDPH) to begin operating the $80 million facility, which was completed at the end of last year. READ MORE: I-65 Reopens After Hours-Long Pileup Caused By Multiple Truck Crashes On Snowy HighwayBut CDPH announced Friday that it had denied RMG’s permit application, which Mayor Lori Lightfoot put on hold last May, after President Joe Biden’s top environmental official told her in a letter that he has major reservations about the car shredding plant moving to the Southeast Side, raising civil rights concerns about the move from a predominantly white neighborhood to a mostly Latino community already overburdened with pollution. In a statement, city officials said their review of RMG’s permit application “found the potential adverse changes in air quality and quality of life that would...
    President Joe Biden on Wednesday temporarily raised pay for federal firefighters to ensure that none are making less than $15 per hour. He announced the pay boost - and other moves to fight wildfires - during a virtual meetings with governors from Western states. 'Come on man, that's unacceptable to me,' Biden said of firefighters pay.  And he said there will be more to come. 'But a one time boost is not enough, these courageous women and men take an incredible risk of running toward the fire, and they deserve to be paid and paid good wages,' he added. He told governors they would be meeting annually to discuss the threat of wildfires.   'The threat of western fires this year is as severe as it's ever been,' Biden said. 'We can't cut corners when it comes to managing our wildfires and our supporting our firefighters, and this briefing is going to be an annual event.'  President Joe Biden temporarily raised pay for federal firefighters to ensure that none are making less than $15 per hour President Biden and some...
    In this article MSFTDado Ruvic | ReutersMicrosoft on Tuesday released patches for three versions of its Exchange Server email and calendar software that companies use in on-premises data centers, and the federal government has ordered all agencies to install them, warning that the vulnerabilities being patched "pose an unacceptable risk to the Federal enterprise and require an immediate and emergency action." The updates come a month after Microsoft took action to respond to attacks on other flaws in Exchange Server, which the company said had been exploited by Chinese hackers. But unlike last time, Microsoft said in a blog post it has not yet observed exploits of the newly discovered holes. Nonetheless, the widespread usage of Exchange, and the importance of email in general, has spurred the federal government to sound the alarm. In a Tuesday directive, the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency noted that these vulnerabilities are "different from the ones disclosed and fixed in March 2021" and ordered all government agencies to deploy the patches before Friday. "Given the powerful privileges that Exchange manages by default...
    Healthy young illegal immigrants have been given preferential treatment in receiving the coronavirus vaccines ahead of elderly and vulnerable native Britons, an investigation has found. Migrants who came to the United Kingdom illegally and are now being housed at the taxpayers’ expense at the four-star Crowne Plaza Hotel in London have received free coronavirus vaccinations, the Daily Mail reported on Saturday. One illegal Sudanese migrant, 20-year-old Abdul, who crossed in a boat from the safe and wealthy France seven months ago, told the newspaper: “I was given the vaccination yesterday at the hotel to stop me catching Covid. There are 400 migrants living here and we nearly all had it. No-one I know refused.” A group of Sudanese and Eritrean migrants said that on Thursday a “mass vaccination” operation was held at the hotel. A 27-year-old Sudanese national said: “The vaccinations were given to us whatever our age.” “We didn’t have to pay. We were told to queue up for them at the hotel. None of us want to catch the coronavirus,” he said. “This was the first vaccination and...
    The University of Connecticut announced Wednesday morning that it has put its 2020-2021 football season on hold as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. UConn is the first school in the FBS to cancel its season, a decision that the student-athletes were seemingly for. FORMER UCONN BASKETBALL STAR STANLEY ROBINSON FOUND DEAD AT 32 "After receiving guidance from state and public health officials and consulting with football student-athletes, we've decided that we will not compete on the gridiron this season," director of athletics David Benedict said in a statement on the school’s website. "The safety challenges created by COVID-19 place our football student-athletes at an unacceptable level of risk." He continued: “Ultimately, the student-athletes would rather preserve their year of eligibility with an eye to competing under more typical circumstances during the 2021 season." JAGUARS’ GARDNER MINSHEW ON BEING PLACED ON THE COVID-19 LIST: ‘IT TOOK ONE LOOK AT ME AND RAN THE OTHER WAY’ Head coach Randy Edsall also said it was the concern of the athletes that ultimately led to the school's decision to suspend the season. “We...
    Public fallout between the NFL and its players is continuing to heat up with Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Malik Jackson calling out both the league and the Players Association on Wednesday for a lack of “safety” and “financial” guarantees despite training camp scheduled to start in just a few weeks. The Super Bowl champ posted a long message to Instagram voicing his strong feelings condemning the NFL and NFLPA for their handling of the new season amid a pandemic. BILLS’ STEFON DIGGS APPREHENSIVE ABOUT NFL SEASON: ‘I’D BE LYING IF I SAID I WAS COMFORTABLE’ “It is unacceptable and utterly disrespectful for the owners to have set a camp start date of July 28, 2020, with no safety/ financial guarantee agreed upon for us as players, the backbone of this industry,” his caption read. “Today is July 8 and we have no answers to simple questions we’ve been asking since this pandemic started.” Trouble began over the preseason schedule last week when the NFLPA voted unanimously to recommend that the league cancel preseason all together just days after the NFL...
