The 412 Line in Harford County to be cut?

From the Baltimore Sun...

Transit riders fight bus cut
Customers willing to pay higher fares

By Mary Gail Hare
November 23, 2008

Hundreds of Harford County's mass transit riders say they are conserving energy and helping to preserve the environment without adding to congestion on Interstate 95. Riding the bus also saves them money on gas and parking in downtown Baltimore.

Now they are battling the Maryland Transit Administration's cost-savings proposals that would eliminate one of the four commuter bus lines from the county to Baltimore and cut back trips on others. A public hearing in Bel Air last week drew nearly 150 people. More than 40 of them argued that increased ridership alone is reason to keep the service.

Eating 6x a Day DEBUNKED

Read more here.

A snippet:

Meal frequency and energy balance.
Br J Nutr. 1997 Apr;77 Suppl 1:S57-70.
“More importantly, studies using whole-body calorimetry and doubly-labelled water to assess total 24 h energy expenditure find no difference between nibbling and gorging. Finally, with the exception of a single study, there is no evidence that weight loss on hypoenergetic regimens is altered by meal frequency. We conclude that any effects of meal pattern on the regulation of body weight are likely to be mediated through effects on the food intake side of the energy balance equation.”

Today! Founder of Peace Corps at UMBC 7 PM

Today we have a unique opportunity to hear from one of the Peace Corps founders, Bill Josephson, author of the Towering Task (the blueprint for the original Peace Corps) and lifelong friend of Sargent Shriver. Bill will be presenting his ideas for a 21st Century Peace Corps as we transition to new national leadership in this critical historical moment. Bill is also a leading expert on the Electoral College, so it will be highly interesting to learn his thoughts on the election just days after the vote. And we'll have dessert after!

Please come: Thursday November 13th at 7pm in UMBC's Library 7th Floor. Parking for the event will be marked upon entering campus, and Directions to UMBC can be found at www.umbc.edu A dessert reception will follow...
