In public schools, $1 meals all day, every day
Jamie Oliver
by Sachpreet Chandhoke,Medill Reports: Chicago - Imagine having a $1 per meal budget. Now think about how you decide what to eat on a daily basis – breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner.   

You probably don’t just count calories, nor do you just eat separate regimented portions of certain foods.  Within the means available, you eat for flavor, energy and nourishment.  And nothing rivals a home-cooked meal.

For school lunch program providers, and unfortunately for students, taste and flavor are not mandated.  But nutrition requirements and a specified number of servings of fruits, vegetables, proteins and grains must be met – all within a $1 budget.

The result is a

Skin care for natural, radiant baby boomers
By Jean Patteson, Seattle Times - Because this is a story about Lauren Hutton's eponymous makeup line, we'll begin with the question inevitably asked of cosmetics moguls:

If you were marooned on a desert island, what three makeup items would you most want with you?

"If I were on a desert island, I wouldn't be wearing makeup," responds this maverick model-actress-amateur-anthropologist in her distinctively husky voice. "When I travel to Africa and places like that, I don't take makeup with me."

So what would she want on that island?

"Books. Pencil and paper. And someone to love," she says. "A man. A beautiful, exotic man."

Hutton launched her makeup and skin-care

Yahoo, Hellmann's Join Forces On Food Show
WebProNews - Lexington, KY, USA - What do Yahoo and Hellmann’s mayonnaise have in common?  “In Search of Real Food,” a twelve-episode series that focuses on Dave Lieberman and his - you guessed it - search for “real food,” much of which will probably be covered in or filled with mayo.

This sounds like lunacy, but as the Wall Street Journal’s Suzanne Vranica points out, “Visitors to video-sharing Web sites have shown they’ll watch just about anything, from cats chasing mice around to ordinary folks singing in the shower.”  And I’d rather look at yummy food than listen to tone-deaf teenagers.

So it’s no joke; Yahoo really is

Lachey Pumps Up for Infomercial
Nick Lachey - Newly single pop star Nick Lachey is pumping up and cashing in as the star of a new infomercial for celebrity personal trainer Gunnar Peterson.

The former "Newlyweds: Nick and Jessica" star pocketed $500,000 for his appearance in the ad -- which sees him strip off his shirt to reveal his toned physique.

Peterson claims, "Nick came in looking really good and left looking great."

The celebrity personal trainer whipped Lachey into shape a few months before filming the shots last summer for the "Core Secrets" DVD series.

Peterson, who also trains Jennifer Lopez, adds, "Nick doesn't shy away from hard work."

Biggest in the biz, with room to grow
Martha Stewart kicked things off at Kmart. Then Target used designer Michael Graves to give its no-name imported home goods some class. JCPenney splashed cable TV decorator Chris Madden's name all over its home furnishing department.

Stronger Sales in Just 28 Minutes
Fairfield, Iowa, rises from the flatlands like thousands of other small towns along the lonely roads of the Midwest. But in addition to corn, hogs, and rusty John Deere tractors, another uniquely American phenomenon has taken root here: the infomercial. At the foot of Fairfield's water tower, in a sprawling facility housed inside a former sewing factory, an ad agency called Hawthorne Direct produces many of the 28-minute commercials that have become a staple of late-night television--the get-rich-quick schemes, kitchen gadgets, baldness cures, and other pitches targeted at a nation of bleary-eyed insomniacs.

Timothy Hawthorne, the "king of the infomercial," brought

INfomercialS aren't exact science; some ring in money, others hit new lows
By DIANE HOLLOWAY / Cox News Service - Love 'em or hate 'em, infomercials - those feature-length TV ads celebrating their 20th year - are as much a part of pop culture as they are marketing tools.

Who among us hasn't stumbled upon some fabulous household gadget during a bout of insomnia? Or discovered the ultimate ab cruncher while spinning the dial? Or hooted with a friend about a cheesy-looking host hawking hair products?

"They've told us everything we ever wanted to know about slicing, dicing, slimming and toning," said Steven Dworman, infomercial expert and author of "$12 Billion of Inside Marketing Secrets Discovered Through Direct Response Television Sales."
