    1. Harvard Nutritionist Says USDA 'Food Pyramid' Is Wrong

       
    2. The famous "food pyramid," considered almost holy by many nutritionists and dieters, is wrong and hurts both waistlines and health ... printed on cereal boxes and bread wrappers, posted on elementary school bulletin boards, and published in university textbooks. It's also known globally. The USA Rice Federation distributes the food pyramid ...

      1. ACLU Pocket Card on Police Encounters

         
      2. Police abuse is a serious national problem -- and one that especially affects young people and people of color. While many police officers do strive to be courteous, and while we all understand the stress and danger involved in policing, each of us has the right to be treated with respect -- and without abuse -- by the police. To fight police abuse effectively you need to know your rights. There are some things you should do, some things you must do and some things you cannot do. If you are in the middle of a police encounter, you need a handy and quick reference to remind you what your rights and obligations are. That's why the ACLU is making this pocket card available as a downloadable file. You can photocopy this and carry it in your wallet, pocket or glove compartment to give you quick access to your rights and obligations concerning police encounters.
        This useful document is available as a PDF download. Get it now! (b/w Anodyne, a Blogathon post)

      1. Brain Reacts Differently to Faces Based on Race

         

        (Yahoo! News)

         
      2. African-American participants did well in recalling whether they had previously seen a face, regardless of race--although the best memory performance in the study was among black participants looking at black faces.Whites, however, were not as successful in recalling which pictures of African Americans they had seen before, the report indicates.
        So, there really is something to that they-all-look-alike phenomenon than many people seem to have when looking at others different than them.

      1. PuppetMaster

         
      2. 12 players, 6 men and 6 women, from different backgrounds write about their lives and their personal experiences, trying to collect over $75 in prize money. (Okay, $75 isn't a lot, but I'm counting on donations and I'm a poor boy.)But there's a catch. One of the contestants does not exist. They are a figment of the imagination. An imposter. A Kaycee.
        Funny weblog people. And it turns out that one of BoyCaught's faves, jillmatrix, is real after all. Sheesh!

      1. Men May Prefer Beauty Over Youth

      2. A new study from Britain suggests men may be more choosy than they're usually given credit for, preferring older attractive woman to younger plain-looking ones.
        Some do get better with age.

      1. Give up sex for two years, Kenyans told

         

        (The Times)

         
      2. President Moi has told all Kenyans that they must abstain from sex for at least two years if the spread of Aids is to be stopped.
        BoyCaught realizes that the intentions here are well-meant, but unfortunately, humans are not camels. Some would probably think that a voluntary abstinence for that amount of time amounts to a fate worse then death. After all, when you're dead, it's over. (b/w net.Headlines, excellent)

      1. New technique could make fathers unnecessary

         

        (Jerusalem Post)

         
      2. Children could be born to two biological mothers without the need of a father if a technique developed by separate teams - each of them headed by Israeli scientists permanently living abroad - is applied successfully to human beings. The technique has significant advantages over cloning an embryo from a single mother.
        BoyCaught figures this research may give new meaning to the phrase: "Who's your Daddy?" Or, in Indiana: "Hoosier daddy?" But the real question is: why is this helpful. Is it "natural" for infertile people to breed? Just because you "want" a baby doesn't mean you should have one. Does it?

      1. Review of Nissan Car Loans Finds That Blacks Pay More

         

        (NY Times)

         
      2. A statistical study of more than 300,000 car loans arranged through Nissan dealers from March 1993 to last September
        300,000 records is a pretty large datapoint. But, like, you know, things are way better than they were in the Sixties. Back they, they couldn't even get a loan. Why are those damn n*ggas always complaining? (b/w allaboutgeorge, a blog w/o peer)

      1. America, the Corporate

         

        (AdBusters)

         
      2. As everyday people freshen up Old Glory for the national birthday, Corporate America is revelling in a Golden Age. A shrinking number of the planet's biggest businesses -- AOL Time Warner, Shell, Nike, Microsoft, McDonald's -- are the money behind presidents, the power that drives global trade rules, the voice of authority on how we live and the way we think.
        BoyCaught loves America, and would live nowhere else. But let's face it, this is a country run by a president who was elected by fraud, and controlled by big-money corporate interests that could give a f*ck about democracy. The problem is: most "citizens" don't care as long as they keep getting their paycheck. But if that stops, will it be too late?

      2. Information on how to opt-out of those annoying X-10 pop-up ads. Only lasts 30 days, however.
        Thanks go to Cecily of Outlet blog, and also to Rebecca of Rebecca's Pocket, for pointing to information on how to kill this annoying online nuisance, albeit for only 30 days. Don't these X10 idiots understand that as soon as your ad becomes an irritant it's no longer making your product attractive? What business school did their marketing people go to anyway?

      1. State puts brakes on GPS speeding fines

         

        (News.com)

         
      2. (Follow-up to link posted on June 30, 2001)
        The state's Department of Consumer Protection sided with renters against car rental company Acme Rent-a-Car, of New Haven. In an administrative complaint filed against the car rental company on Monday, the department charged Acme with violating state law when it fined drivers who exceeded the posted speed limit while driving a rental car.
        But just because the company may be prohibited from charging doesn't mean they won't be tracking customers' every move. Do you feel safe?

      1. Tech Firms Send Workers on Vacation

         

        (TechTV)

         
      2. In response to the slowing economy, some of the industry's biggest firms are making vacation time mandatory this summer. With Independence Day falling on a Wednesday this year, many companies decided that the first week of July would be the best time to close up shop.
        Fine and good, but BoyCaught wonders if this is all just a prelude to forced part-time employment. Who needs FTE's anyway? What better way to control the masses than by keeping them on a yo-yoing leash of on-again-off-again employment. Given that the top executives gobble up most of the compensation and perks anyway, how come they never consider going on vacation themselves?

      1. Mrs. Beller's Neighboorhood

         
      2. Mr. Beller's Neighborhood combines a magazine with a map. It uses the external, familiar landscape of New York City as a way of organizing the wildly internal, often unfamiliar emotional landscapes of the city dweller. It is about a specific place - New York - and it about the many different consciousness that thrive and wilt and rage and reminisce here. We publish reportage, personal essays, and the occasional piece of fiction, though by and large everything you read on the site is true.

      1. Inside.com Names Price - $3.95 a Month

         

        (Yahoo! News)

         
      2. Online media and entertainment news site Inside.com, which Brill Media Holdings LP bought in a stock deal in April, has begun charging for most of its news.
        BoyCaught thinks that if more "news" sites will start to follow this model it will seriously crimp the style of many weblogs. What's the point of logging a link if payment is required to view it? Obviously, weblogs have to evolve to a point where they're creating content instead of just pointing to other's material. This weblog too.

      1. Rental driver finds Big Brother over shoulder

         

        (CNN.com)

         
      2. He overlooked a clause in the contract stating that its vehicles were equipped with a Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) system and that going over the speed limit would cost $150 per infraction. When he returned home and tried to use his ATM card, he discovered that the rental company had taken out $450 from his account.
        BoyCaught finds this extremely scary. Not only is Big Brother wathcing, he's billing you at the same time.
