Traffic Light Labels for Food Products in the UK

posted on January 7th, 2011 ·


How often do you look at the food label before you buy the product? Most people do not bother. Not because they do not care, but because understanding the label is just not plain easy. Food Standards Agency in UK knows this and it has introduced “traffic light” system for food products since early year 2007.

The traffic light colors are printed on the front of food packs. You can take a glance if the food has high, medium or low amounts of saturated fat, sugar and salt in every 100 gram of the food.

How I Stop Drinking Coffee? 3 Things I Did To Stop The Habit.

posted on January 3rd, 2011 ·


I grew up drinking soda during college days, then switched to tea when I studied in the UK. The English people somehow like drinking tea, be it in the morning or in the afternoon. Probably because of the cold weather there, I picked up the habit of holding a cup of hot tea too while I was reading. When I was back here to work, Starbucks arrived and suddenly became the de facto hang out place for yuppies. It was there I started sipping coffee. Lasted for two years before I decided to quit drinking coffee. If not in Starbucks, I would buy coffee from other places too, 7 days a week without fail. (more…)

Will We See Nicolas Cage With 6 Pack Abs Again?

posted on December 22nd, 2010 ·


When I watched Ghost Rider on TV recently, I was amazed to see Nicolas Cage having his ripped body shape with 6 pack abs.  He took on the role in year 2006.  The last role that he is showing his muscles was in Con Air in year 1997.  Even that, he did not go shirtless.

As far as I know, Nicolas Cage is never a “macho” type of action hero baring chest with veins on bulging biceps and blood on shirt.  Surprisingly though, most of Cage’s movies that have achieved financial success were in the action or adventure genre.  Therefore, when he showed off his muscles in Ghost Rider, it is indeed an eye opener for me.
