    The government should ban high-sugar cereals such as Coco Pops and other foods that are contributing to an obesity epidemic among British children, the shadow health secretary has urged. Regulations limiting the amount of sugar, salt and fat in processed foods should be considered if the food industry does not take action itself, according to Labour’s Andy Burnham, who has begun a consultation on how to tackle obesity. Burnham highlighted the case of breakfast cereals, saying many aimed at children are more than one-third sugar by weight. …

    The black soot that big rig trucks belch from their chugging diesel engines may soon become a thing of the past. In one of the more far-reaching smog regulations that California has ever proposed, state air regulators are considering a first-in-the-nation plan that would require nearly every privately owned, heavy diesel truck in the state to install a filter that would reduce emissions of soot from their rigs by 85 percent. The new regulation would affect 1 million truckers, half of them registered out of state who regularly drive on California freeways. If approved by the California Air Resources Board...

    NEW YORK - In a town where you can get a slice of pizza or a hot dog on nearly every block, one city councilman wants to limit the number of fast food restaurants as a way to fight obesity. Councilman Joel Rivera, health committee chairman, said at a hearing Wednesday he was exploring the idea of using zoning laws to prevent fast food joints from taking over city streets. More than half of adult New Yorkers are overweight or obese. "You're not going to totally eliminate fast food restaurants, but you could limit the amount," Rivera said after the...

    WASHINGTON - The Senate on Wednesday cleared the path for renewing the USA Patriot Act, swatting aside objections while adding new protections for people targeted by government investigations. The overwhelming votes virtually assured that Congress will renew President Bush's antiterror law before it expires March 10. The House was expected to pass the legislation and send the bill to the president next week. The law's opponents, who insisted the new protections were cosmetic, conceded defeat. "The die has now been cast," acknowledged the law's chief opponent, Sen. Russell Feingold, D-Wis., after the Senate voted 84-15 to end his filibuster. "Obviously...
  • House votes to limit U.S. aid to Mexico - (Rep. Drier against measure)

    WASHINGTON -- A vote in the House of Representatives this week to punish Mexico for failing to extradite the suspected killers of Los Angeles County Sheriff's Deputy David March and other law-enforcement officers divided Southland lawmakers, though not entirely along partisan lines. Sponsored by two Colorado legislators, the amendment threatens to cut off aid to any country that refuses to extradite suspects in the killings of U.S. law officers. It would affect about $66 million in aid to Mexico, which has blocked the extradition of suspects who face either death penalty or life imprisonment sentences. It passed 327 to 98....
  • Schlafly: Picking Federal Judges' Party Matters Less Than Limiting Their Power(thoughtful!)

    A well-known conservative and founder of the grassroots public policy organization Eagle Forum says it is not as important to get people of a particular political camp appointed to the federal bench as it is to limit what judges will have the jurisdiction to rule on once they get there. Political commentators agree that the long-threatened Senate filibuster showdown and the tentative compromise that was eventually reached were all about one thing -- the imminent battle over the likely appointments of judges to the U.S. Supreme Court in the next few years. Most pundits seem to feel everything depends on...

    Graduates find area job market limiting Leesha Faulkner / Education Editor Posted on May 4, 2003 Rachel Childress stood at the back of a conference room at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. She clutched a certificate and a copy of the "Merck Index." The certificate, bestowed last month at ULM's Academic Awards Convocation, honored the ULM senior's outstanding status in chemistry. The book provided information about chemicals, drugs and biological agents. They both mean a lot to Childress. A job for this former Monroe resident means more. The 24-year-old with a 3.5 grade point average works as a chemist...
