Soda Ban? Article for ?Tinypliny?

So Even before I read this article I thought Hey a bet if (e:tinypliny) is on the internet this is an article she would find interesting now I have to read it... But not only her anyone who thinks about health and how we have a right to drink what we want but maybe there should be a tax on bad stuff... Or maybe the government shouldn't subsidize corn?



NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg plans to propose a far-reaching municipal ban on sales of large-size sugary beverages by restaurants, mobile food carts, movie theaters and delis, his administration said on Wednesday.
A document outlining the proposal said it was aimed at fighting an epidemic of obesity, citing public health statistics showing that 58 percent of New York City adults and nearly 40 percent of city public school students are obese or overweight.
The proposal defines sugary drinks as beverages that are "sweetened with sugar or another caloric sweetener that contain more than 25 calories per 8 fluid ounces and contains less than 51 percent milk or milk substitute by volume as an ingredient."

It would impact drinks sold in containers larger than 16 ounces, but would not impact the sale of diet soda or dairy-based drinks.
Americans consume 200 to 300 more calories every day than they did 30 years ago, according to the Bloomberg administration's analysis.
Bloomberg has used the power of the city government to promote other health measures, including a campaign to cut down on salt and a ban on trans fats in restaurant food, as well as a requirement that chain restaurants display calorie counts.

In 2003, the city banned smoking in bars and restaurants, generating howls of protest at the time from smokers and non-smokers who saw it as a case of government creeping into private lives, but the law has since become widely accepted.
Bloomberg, a political independent, is in the middle of his third four-year term as New York City mayor.
The response to Bloomberg's public health initiatives have been mixed. Earlier this month, a Quinnipiac University poll found that 45 percent of New York voters thought the government should discourage unhealthy eating and drinking habits, while 48 percent said the government shouldn't get involved.
Still, many of those initiatives, including the smoking ban, have become models for other cities.
The proposed ban on sugary drinks requires the approval of the city's Board of Health. It will be submitted to the board on June 12.

In a statement, a spokesman for the New York City Beverage Association challenged Bloomberg's assertion that the consumption of soda was driving obesity rates.
"It's time for serious health professionals to move on and seek solutions that are going to actually curb obesity," said spokesman Stefan Friedman. "These zealous proposals just distract from the hard work that needs to be done on this front."

For anyone who reads me Do you think the box or " " bubble is a better way to read something.... I kinda think that the box is but not sure....

So here is my question what will the movies sell for you to drink now? Also I wonder flavored water might be pretty close to this... Now lets say they just cut the size of the soda will anyone get the big popcorn anymore?

The little bit of an issue I Have with this though is that it acts like Diet Pop is ok.... Not that I'm going to fund it... But it would be interesting to look into how Diet pop and regular pop by brand of course very ..... They do taste different but most diet pop doesn't toss out the sugar they use some fake stuff and hasn't all that fake stuff been found like it does damage to you if the pop is left out in the back of the truck bed on a hot day......

Also though this doesn't address the real issue... As some comedian said have you ever noticed the only people drinking diet Soda are fat? In other words it doesn't work... See what often happens is people think oh it is diet so I can have more of it.... Also some people think oh I'll get this huge meal and oh a diet soda...don't want to get full or anything or they think that like counters the bad stuff.....

So the last two pictures I have to explain... It was weird and funny all at the same time.... Like what no one listens to metal, watches Sons Of Anarchy or even Wrestling? Everyone thinks I look like Jesus... So this lady comes up and because of the resemblance gives me a card..... In any event....

Battleship +

So Not saying that the last time I went to the movies was on 2-12 but it might have been since that is my last post in this category .... Part of that is there are so many shows I like on and plus the Many shows on sunday nights and the lovely DVR.... Plus with wrestling PPV's and trying to keep up...... Plus sports like Friday night I went to the bisons game... Not really time to post pix today so that will be a sunday thing.... Hoping it isn't over 3 months till my next shows... But it is that crazy season Next weekend is Pride Buffalo... Weekend after that is The Artfestival....... Think I have those dates right....

First movie I went to go see Was Men In Black in 3D.... I liked the other 2 and if Memory serves there is one thing that story wise doesn't make sense...But it was fun and at points I could feel the movement in the movie and it was pretty cool how 3D not really sure but fun time....

So the movie ended at just the right time to see The Dictator.... I enjoyed that crazy movie it was great and funny.....

So after that I figured that was it... But as I left I checked the Times and Yes I could see Battleship....And yes there is stuff at the end of the credits kinda like how they had stuff during the credits of the Dictator but different.... This was a fun movie.... But also this being memorial day this was a great time to see a Navy Movie where they battle Aliens... Good times....

2012 Hospice Walk

So today was the hospice walk.. Some people do really go all out they have teams and writing on their shirts over even printed pictures... To me though that isn't my style... They have like whom you are walking in memory and again I don't really follow that.. See we are walking to give them money for like others... Who if they don't need it now will.... But again I'm not like everyone else.... So here are a bunch of photos that mostly will look like Downtown Buffalo....

Now I should say that this walk was my mother's Idea I had never heard of it... Yes it is because of my dad that we now of hospice... But to say I walk in his memory isn't really correct... Of course you do remember that person and the tributes people do are nice.... But the walk helps new people......

2012 May Skiffle

So Yesterday was the first Friday of the Month so off to see the Skiffle Minstrels ....

But for anyone who reads me 2 things first.. Sorry I didn't vote at all in the artvoice thing... I never got around to it...Opps ... Now what got me thinking about that is how tasty they make a burger there.... Now the second thing is a question and a few pix after it...

1. Should Burger king have a garbage right by the bus stop?
2. Should NFTA have them at all Shelters?
3. Or maybe buffalo can be like a real City like Toronto and have pickups all year round on the sidewalks maybe even re-cycle ?

Ok some random pictures from the show.......
