Kanye West Tells The Grammys To Suck His D-ck And Throws Shade At Justin Timberlake During Concert Freestyle! Watch HERE!

Aw, man! And here we were, all worried that Kanye West's impending fatherhood had neutered his notorious, volatile outbursts!

Luckily, the rapper put all of those fears to rest last night during his concert last night at the Hammersmith Apollo in London in pretty much the most scathing, HIGHlarious and surprisingly astute way ever!

Oh, and at the expense of the Grammys, big businesses, and shockingly…Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake!

Following his performance of Clique, Yeezy descended into a frenetic, somewhat theatrical freestyle rant that, if it's possible to draw an over-arching message or theme, questioned the authenticity and morality of the entertainment industry, all the while lashing out at the creative and personal sacrifices that must be made in today's big-business-centric culture to ensure corporate backing and marketability as an artist!

Seems a little strange for this to come from someone who's expecting a baby girl with a woman who has essentially branded and sold her entire existence to America, but he even acknowledges that himself, when he says:

Cereal Marketed Toward Kids May Have More Sugar Then Some Desserts!

Filed under: FoodFamilyNutrition

Sugary Cereal has more sugar than desserts

Most parents wouldn't dream of feeding their kids cake for breakfast every day, but if they aren't careful about what kind of cereal they're buying, they just might be feeding them worse!

A survey by the Environmental Working Group has found that a lot of cereals marketed to children, like Honey Smacks, have MORE sugar in them than a Hostess Twinkie.

Yes! The survey reveals a cup of Cap'n Crunch or Apple Jacks has more sugar than three Chips Ahoy! cookies.

Yuck! If you don't want you're kids eating the nutritional equivalent of a chopped up candy bar (fortified with vitamins of course), check out ten of the sugariest cereals below:

Congress Working To Censor The Internet Very Soon … Starting Today!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooPolitik

PROTECT IP Act Breaks The Internet from Fight for the Future on Vimeo.

"Today, the House Judiciary Committee will be hearing testimony related to legislation designed to combat online copyright infringement. The House Bill, the Stop Online Piracy Act, and the Senate version pursue an at-all-costs approach to policing the net that would have grave repercussions to the Internet as we know it." writes Senator Ron Wyden.

According to him and many other senators, the proposed legislation could strip certain freedoms of the people at corporations' wishes under the guise of copyright protection.

For example, when one little kid wants to upload a video of herself rapping Nicki Minaj to Facebook, the entire site could be blocked for each and every user.

When someone wants to share a cool still from last night's The New Girl on Tumblr, the entire site could be shut down for each and every user.

These websites, among countless others, have proven effective as tools to share information in a fast-evolving world where freedom of expression is constantly facing new challenges.

Senator Wyden also points out the proponents

Occupy Wall Street Corporate American Flag New York City Protest Bankers

In case you don't know what we're talking about, Mayor Bloomberg deemed the state of Occupy Wall Street a health hazard that needed to be cleaned up. So in went the hoses!

Bloomberg said the protestors could come back without their camping equipment — which would basically kill the 24/7 protest.

American's Loves Salt WAY MORE Than They Should

Filed under: DietsFoodHealth

morton salt

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, pretty much all American's are consuming WAY MORE than the recommended amount of sodium.

88% of U.S. children and adults are consuming more than 2,300 milligrams of salt a day, the amount recommended by federal dietary guidelines.

A report from the CDC shows that the average American goes over the suggested daily amount of sodium by 53% and consumes about 3,513 milligrams.

Researchers aren't surprised by the data, but are now aware public health officials have a lot of work to do in order to curb America's taste for their favorite spice.

A high sodium diet can lead to high blood pressure, which contributes to life-threatening health problems such as heart attacks and strokes.

The problem, as a coauthor of the report points out, is not that we're sprinkling too much salt from the shaker on our food, but instead we're eating too much food that is too high in sodium to begin with.

Janelle Peralez Gunn, a public health analyst with the CDC's Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention, said:

"A lot of people tend to think…'I don't add salt to my food,' without realizing that they've probably already exceeded—and in some cases probably doubled—their [recommended] intake before they've even picked up the saltshaker."

Health officials believe a partnership between the government and food companies may be the key to lowering America's sodium intake.

Over two dozen food manufacturers and restaurant chains have already pledged to reduce the sodium in their food up to 25% by 2014 with the National Salt Reduction Initiative.

We don't advise waiting for corporations to take action before you do first as a consumer. Check nutrition labels and opt for lower sodium foods as part of your healthy diet. Including more water, fruits, and veggies into your diet is also an easy way to reduce your salt consumption!

New Nutritional Guidelines For Food Marketed Toward Kids

Filed under: FoodFamily

New food guidelines

As we reported last week, a coalition of some of the biggest names in food called The Children's Food and Beverage Advertising Initiative (CFBAI) has developed new guidelines for food marketing to kids.

The guidelines set new limits for sugars, sodium and saturated fats in juices, dairy products, fruits, vegetables, seeds, nuts, main dishes and entrees, causing companies to reformulate roughly one third of products they advertise to kids.

What are some of the new nutritional guidelines companies must abide by? According to sources:

"Most" sweetened cereals will have to have no more than 10 grams of added sugars rather than the current 12 grams that had been the general standard. Another example is canned pastas will have to have 600 mg of sodium or less to be advertised in kids shows, rather than the current CFBAI standard of 750.

Proponents have called the agreement amongst the food industry, "a groundbreaking agreement that will change the landscape of what is advertised to kids by the nation's largest food and beverage companies."

Companies signed on to the new limits include:

Burger King Corp.; Cadbury Adams USA LLC; Campbell Soup Company; The Coca-Cola Company; ConAgra Foods, Inc.; The Dannon Company; General Mills, Inc.; The Hershey Company; Kellogg Company; Kraft Foods Global, Inc.; Mars, Incorporated; McDonald's USA, LLC; Nestlé USA; PepsiCo, Inc.; Post Foods, LLC; Sara Lee Corporation and Unilever United States.

These changes may not be as strict as the government recommended guidelines, we're happy to see big corporations taking responsibility for the effect their products may be having on childhood obesity!
