Michelle Obama eats 1,700-calorie meal: Is she a hypocrite?

first_img Share Can you preach healthy eating and order a 1,700-calorie lunch at a burger joint? A lot of people are saying ‘no’ because the person in question is the First Lady, a role model, and her primary focus while inhabiting the White House has been to urge the country to eat and live healthier. For the record, she was at the new D.C. location of the popular Shake Shack, and the calories were spent on a hamburger, fries, chocolate shake, and Diet Coke. If it was me, I’d probably ditch the Diet Coke, maybe share the fries, but if that’s what’s going to round out the meal for her, who are we to stop her? I believe that balance is a virtue. Eating salads and sustainable fish everyday leaves a person with a lot of greasy, repressed cravings that I don’t want for myself or my leaders. Enough with all this ‘our candidates and their wives have to be specimens of perfection.’ Our country is overweight, so she’s been sharing a message of healthy eating. But Michelle has admitted her own salty weakness. “Look my favorite food in the whole wide world is French fries,” she has said. Have you gotten a different message from her? Do you think she’s asking us to be more perfect than she is?by Sarah Fuss Share Sharing is caring! 23 Views   no discussionscenter_img Share Tweet Food & DiningHealthLifestyle Michelle Obama eats 1,700-calorie meal: Is she a hypocrite? by: – July 13, 2011last_img read more

Recruiting Indiana

first_imgBall State University head basketball coach, James Whitford, shares my philosophy in recruiting.  I noticed in an article from the Indianapolis Star that Ball State has the most Indiana recruits among the 10 Division I schools in Indiana.  Two-thirds of their roster played basketball for an Indiana high school.  This includes Sean Sellers of Greensburg.  Whitford believes the best basketball players play in Indiana, so he says why go elsewhere to recruit?It irritates me when Indiana basketball players think they need to go to Michigan or Kentucky to play college basketball.  I wonder how hard some of our Indiana colleges really recruit in the state?  Do they think like so many people that someplace else is where the talent is?  If you believe this, why do they keep saying the best high school basketball is played in Indiana?Way to go BSU!!last_img read more

Essien delighted with Milan move

first_img Essien, who could make his Serie A debut against Torino at the San Siro on Sunday, joined Chelsea from Lyon in 2005 for £24.4million and made over 250 appearances for the Blues. However, he had found first-team opportunities at Stamford Bridge limited after returning from his loan spell at Real Madrid last season and decided to call time on his stay with the Blues. Essien goes with Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho’s blessing, although the Portuguese admits he is sorry to see the versatile player leave. “To show Michael respect is to not stop him going,” Mourinho said on his club’s official website. “We would have been happy had he stayed because he is fantastic player for the team, but he’s given everything for the club and a great chance arrived for his future. “I know he can continue to play at a high level and I wish him success and happiness in Italy and at the World Cup in Brazil.” Essien is Milan’s third reinforcement of the winter transfer market following the arrival of Japanese playmaker Keisuke Honda from CSKA Moscow and French centre-half Adil Rami from Valencia. Despite their struggles in the first half of the season, which led to the sacking of Massimiliano Allegri earlier this month, Milan still have plenty to play for this campaign. They are only five points off the European places in Serie A and are still alive in the Champions League, where they take on Atletico Madrid in the last 16 of the competition next month. The 31-year-old Ghana international underwent a medical at Milan before putting pen to paper on a contract that ties him to the Italian giants until June 30, 2015 Essien will now link up with his new team-mates on Tuesday and he admits he is itching to begin life with the seven-time European champions. Michael Essien is chomping at the bit to start the next stage of his career after completing his move to AC Milan from Chelsea on Monday. He tweeted: “I have just signed my contract with one of the best clubs in the world. Im very happy and looking forward to winning with the team#ForzaMilan.” “I cannot wait to join the team in training and be a part of Milan’s family,” he added on Milan Channel. Essien joins a Milan side who have fallen on hard times of late with their only major trophy success in the last six years being the 2010/11 Serie A title. This season they are struggling down in ninth place in the Serie A standings, 28 points behind league leaders Juventus, while they were also knocked out of Coppa Italia quarter-finals at home by Udinese last week. Nevertheless, Essien is excited to be joining such a “great club” and has pledged to give new Rossoneri coach Clarence Seedorf his all. “I am very happy to have spoken to Seedorf, he is a nice person,” he said. “It’s a pleasure to have heard what Seedorf had to say about me. “I always give my best and battle for the team from the first minute until the last. “I hope to achieve something important and give my best for Milan.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Sky Sports loses out on La Liga rights

first_img The 20 year relationship between Sky Sports and La Liga has come to an end, after Eleven Sports won the rights to show the League’s matches in the UK and Ireland for the next three years. The deal comes after Sky’s bid of less than £18 million was topped by Eleven Sports, who opted not to disclose the amount that it paid for the rights, which will commence next season.  Eleven Sports are owned by Leeds United Chairman Andrea Radrizzani, who has helped the broadcaster gain a strong presence in numerous markets, including: Poland, Belgium, Luxembourg, Italy, USA, Singapore and Taiwan. Javier Tebas, president of La Liga commented on the deal: “Eleven Sports are an excellent partner for us in various markets across Europe and we are delighted to have the opportunity to work with them in the UK and Ireland – important markets for us in which La Liga is very popular.”  The decision could be monumental for the way football is broadcast in the UK, as Eleven Sports could utilise its online platforms and broadcast La Liga to an English audience via a online subscription based platform. Although, it may see a more lucrative venture is to set up a channel on UK television, something that may become a realistic ambition if it expands its arsenal with the acquisition of a set English fixtures. The other option for Eleven Sports is to sub-license some, or all of its La Liga offering, a move that would likely favour BT Sport given that Marc Watson is the former CEO of BT and was responsible for the forming of BT Sports, is now in charge of the day to day running of Eleven Sports. Furthermore, having captured the rights to Spain’s top division, Eleven Sports could now look for expansion into the English Premier League, with two Premier League rights packages remaining available.  After the February bidding for the Premier League rights came to a close, package F and G, which contained 20 matches, both still remained up for grabs. However, Sky got the bulk of the package with 128 live games and BT Sport picked up 32 games.
