  • Mediterranean Diet is HEALTHIER than Low-Fat Diet!

    Posted by Corey Carter

    FROM THE L.A. Times

    new study claims that a traditional Mediterranean diet . . . full of olive oil and nuts . . . is much more healthy for your heart than the low-fat diets that doctors have always recommended for weight loss.  The Mediterranean eaters in the study were significantly less likely to have a stroke or to develop heart disease.  And they were allowed to drink wine every day!  (--The researchers say the study shows that the kind of calories you consume is much more important for heart health than the amount of calories you consume.  The low-fat dieters had restricted calorie counts, while the Mediterranean dieters were allowed to eat as much as they wanted.)  (From "NBC Nightly News" on Monday, February 25, 2013)

  • Waiter is Hero for Standing Up For Child with Down Syndrome

    Posted by Corey Carter

    This is an AWESOME story!  Wish there were more people in the world brave enough to stand up for what they believe...and what is RIGHT!

    Waiter Story

    From the Consumerist: 

    A woman named Kim Castillo lives in Houston and has a five-year-old son named Milo . . . who has Down's Syndrome.

    --Earlier this month, Kim, Milo, and the rest of the family went out to a restaurant called Laurenzo's.  Everyone at the table, including Milo, was talking . . . but Kim says no one was being loud.   (--They don't say exactly WHEN this happened or who else was there.)

      --But a party of four sitting near them complained to the waiter, Michael Garcia.  They asked to be moved to another seat and said, quote, "Special needs kids should be kept in special places."

     --Instead of moving them, Michael told the group that he was offended and WOULDN'T be serving them tonight.  They left without eating.
