    New city tech workers dreaming of dining in workplace cafeterias may soon face a harsh reality — going outside. Two city legislators on Tuesday are expected to announce legislation banning on-site workplace cafeterias in an effort to promote and support local restaurants. The measure, proposed by Supervisor Ahsha Safai and co-sponsored by Supervisor Aaron Peskin, would adjust zoning laws to ban workplace cafeterias moving forward, but would not be retroactive. Peskin said the measure, was inspired by tech companies like Twitter and Airbnb, which are widely known to have access to dining in their own buildings, depriving nearby restaurants of...

    State agent inspects sack lunches, forces preschoolers to purchase cafeteria food instead RAEFORD — A preschooler at West Hoke Elementary School ate three chicken nuggets for lunch Jan. 30 because a state employee told her the lunch her mother packed was not nutritious.

  • Face the Future with Faith [Real Mormonism]

    SNIP Teach of faith to keep all the commandments of God, knowing that they are given to bless His children and bring them joy. 4 Warn them that they will encounter people who pick which commandments they will keep and ignore others that they choose to break. I call this the cafeteria approach to obedience. This practice of picking and choosing will not work. It will lead to misery. To prepare to meet God, one keeps all of His commandments. It takes faith to obey them, and keeping His commandments will strengthen that faith. Obedience allows God’s blessings to flow...

The U.S. Department of Agriculture is giving $2 million to food behavior scientists to use marketing tricks to encourage kids to pick fruits and veggies over cookies and french fries. Some of the ideas include hiding chocolate milk behind plain milk, putting the salad bar near checkout, placing fruit in pretty baskets and accepting only cash as payment for desserts.

    Those disaffected Anglicans in England and Wales who think they can take up Pope Benedict’s offer and switch to Rome with a “pick and choose” attitude should think again, the Catholic Archbishop of Westminster, Vincent Nichols has said. Many Anglicans unhappy with women’s ordination and gay clergy cannot just convert to Roman Catholicism as a way out, but must accept Catholic doctrine wholeheartedly, he said. “Nothing is envisaged in this provision that the Pope has put in place is a kind of minimalist approach to picking bits of the Catholic faith that I like and then seeing myself as it...

"This was a top school official, well-compensated, whose charge and duty was to protect the interests of the school district and its students," Acting U.S. Attorney Ralph J. Marra said. "Instead, he acted as...

Their front ranks will be filled with clerical collars. ‘Blue’ churches like Blue states will be the base for counter-attacks on ‘value voters’ on many fronts. The blue churches are the Religious Left – mainline Protestant churches with declining membership, lapsed, cafeteria Catholics and secular Jews. And all the other Pagan faithful who are ‘spiritual not religious’, Wiccan, Vegan, etc. The Liberals will come back hard, because they’re infuriated that...

    Baghdad Museum 'Outrage' Dwarfed by Diplo Looting Spree Now that many of the irreplaceable treasures supposedly looted from Baghdad's National Museum are turning up in Jordan, it seems that all handwringing over the episode by media types desperate to paint the Iraq war as a failure was vastly overdone. But while Iraq's art looters weren't all they were cracked up to be, there's still plenty of cause for concern on the looting front - especially when it comes to the media's favorite deliberative body, the United Nations. "It was chaos, wild, something out of a war scene," said one executive...
