NEWSWORTHY Or Not?

NEWSWORTHY or NOT?

 I want to know what is in your local newspaper?  Not the National Headlines – but yours LOCALLY.

Since we all come from different towns, cities, states & countries, I thought it might me more interesting to read what your local paper “deems important”.

Here’s Three from My local paper

Honolulu Advertiser

Dead bodies bills alive

A bill that would prohibit the commercial display of dead human bodies without a permit from the Department of Health has passed out of the House of Representatives.

A companion measure that adds to the prohibition against buying dead human bodies, to include the selling of dead human bodies also passed.

'SNL' skit 'went too far,' Aiona says

A "Saturday Night Live" skit depicting a fictitious hotel on Kaua'i while mocking the visitor industry has incited the ire of Lt. Gov. James "Duke" Aiona Jr. and tourism officials, who claim the piece is offensive and crosses the line at a critical time for the state's biggest industry.

The four-minute skit, which aired this past weekend, featured Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson as a hula-dancing local boy working in the hotel restaurant. It takes stabs at the lives of local residents, mocking the way the visitor industry caters to tourists and offers up stereotypes of the visitor industry employees.

As the nation’s food and nutrition experts, registered dietitians work in a variety of settings as the indispensable providers of food and nutrition information, translating the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living.<br />
<br />
You can be sure that nutrition information coming from a registered dietitian is timely and accurate, and takes into account the most recent evidence-based research. In addition, many dietitians have the counseling skills to provide personalized nutrition education, taking into account the individual human differences each client may have. One diet does not fit all; and the RD is skilled in determining what diet and nutrition parameters should be recommended based on an individual’s lifestyle and diet and medical history.<br />
<br />
So, with today designated as the second annual Registered Dietitian Day, commemorating the dedication of RDs as advocates for advancing the nutritional status of Americans and people around the world, I asked local RDs for their best “taste-bite” of advice for the community at large. I hope you will find their responses helpful to your personal nutrition goals.
