    Michelles meals turn off the kids Getty Images By Erik Wasson - 05/21/14 06:00 AM EDT More than a million kids confronted by healthier school lunches are turning up their noses, leaving the cafeteria and heading out to get a burger instead.

The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, supported by President Obama, requires lunch programs that receive federal dollars to provide healthier meals. The new standards began to go...

    Why climate change may ruin breakfast By Laura Barron-Lopez - 05/20/14 12:08 PM EDT A new report out Tuesday says climate change might increase the price of Kellogg's Corn Flakes by 30 percent in the next 15 years.

Oxfam estimates that changing weather patterns like hurricanes and drought could drive up grain prices, which will hurt the retail price of Kellogg's Corn Flakes in the U.S. by roughly 30...

But Haftar has sought to portray himself in a different light,...

    Feinstein: Clinton in 'prime of her political life' By LEIGH MUNSIL | 5/18/14 9:44 AM EDT Karl Roves criticisms of Hillary Clinton's age and health were pathetic, Sen.

She has all of the elements of a good leader plus the fact, and this is not to be underestimated, she is enormously attractive to people, the California Democrat said on CNN's "State of the Union." And she carries the torch for women...

Pelosis speech came nearly 50 years after students led by Mario Savio occupied a Berkeley building and launched the free speech movement, which sought to lift university bans on political activities. Now,...
