Obama Gets ‘Awkward Silences’ From Vets

Some schools are taking standards of healthy eating to even higher levels

(Washington Times) – As a new school year dawns, the U.S. Department of Agriculture is reminding of its new rules against Gatorade and caffeine-filled drinks in school cafeterias — and it’s a matter of national security, they say.

“Obesity is not just a health issue,” Kevin Concannon, the department’s undersecretary for food, nutrition and consumer services, said in a statement reported by National Review earlier this month. “It is an economic and national security issue.”

The department’s new rules come in the form of Smart Snacks in School nutrition standards, part of the fallout from the first lady Michelle Obama-fueled Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Under the rules, middle schools can’t provide kids with Gatorade, some tea drinks, lemonades, fruit punches or caffeinated beverages.

Some schools are taking those standards of healthy eating to even higher levels.

Mexican President Thanks California for Aiding Illegals

“I want to thank you for what you have done for migrants, especially the ones from Mexico”

(Reuters) – Thursday for improving the lives of immigrants from his country, including legalizing drivers’ licenses for undocumented migrants and making it easier for them to work and start businesses.

Pena Nieto, on his first trip to the United States since becoming president in 2012, addressed a joint session of the California legislature, detailing economic and electoral reforms enacted back home and emphasizing his country’s social and economic ties to the state.

“I want to thank you for what you have done for migrants, especially the ones fromMexico,” Pena Nieto said. “It’s no coincidence that my first visit to the United States is in California.”

Pena Nieto’s visit was the latest in a series of exchanges with Mexico that included a trip to that country last month by California Governor Jerry Brown, a Democrat, and a visit to Sacramento by Mexico’s foreign minister, Jose Antonio Meade.

The visits, part of an ongoing effort to further economic ties between California and Mexico, are taking place against a backdrop of growing tensions from the flow of thousands of undocumented children from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras into the United States from Mexico...(MORE)
