Obesity and kids

NY Assemblyman Felix Ortiz is proposing to include weight ranking of children on report cards sent home to parents. I wonder about the implications on eating disorder developments, as well as the fact that BMI score doesn't take into account the wide variety of body types and metabolisms. Also of note, Ortiz has put in bills to tax junk food. [Newsday, via Gothamist]

In September 2004, the NJ legislature voted to ban junk food in schools. [School Nutrition Policy, NYT, Motley Fool]

Food insecurity: diabetes, heart disease, and other obesity-related diseases are replacing homicide and AIDS as top killers of young people in impoverished urban areas. [NYT]

�The wealthy build networks, everyone else looks for work.� Robert Kiyosaki - Book: Rich Dad Poor Dad.

Networking is a proven model for creating wealth. It is the fastest way to acquire leverage and multiplication for your business. Now, networking is not something new. Let's travel back to the beginning� 0ur best history book declares that the Creator said to the image bearers, �Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion�� (Gen. 1:27-28). Years later He gave the same command to Noah and his family. We see that, from the beginning, the dominion paradigm was established. Not only the paradigm but, how to achieve it: �Be fruitful and multiply�. If men were to have dominion they had to be fruitful by relating (networking) with each other and reproducing themselves. In other words, replication led to their multiplication and multiplication gave them dominion.
