Researchers Develop Bite Counter

Filed under: DietsFoodObese

Bite Counter

For many people, the secret to losing weight can be as simple as controlling their portions. Unfortunately, not too many people know how to control their portions, but hopefully this will help.

Much like a pedometer that measures how many steps a person takes, a team at Clemson University has developed The Bite Counter.

The device, which is worn on a users wrist, counts how many bites they take with up to 90% accuracy!

The American Dietetic Association seems to be on board for the invention that will help people monitor portions, as a spokeswoman said:

"This would be a good tool for someone who generally knows what is healthy and unhealthy but maybe has more of an issue with portion control."

The Bite Counter's co-inventor, Eric Muth, has determined that every bite has an average of 25 calories and believes people will quickly realize they may be taking a few too many bites, saying:

"The first thing is to make it obvious that they're eating more than they think. If they know that, the behavior change will come a little easier."

The device is expected to hit the market in a year and cost about $100. Hopefully by then, they'll develop a sleeker design than that big black brick tied to the girl's wrist in the picture above.

Wonder if this one will get the Law & Order treatment now that we're only down to Special Victims Unit!

In light of Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter essentially taking over the lives of everyone ever, the NYPD will reportedly be launching a new juvenile justice department, focusing exclusively on tracking criminal activity using the websites, which will be known as the ‘Social Media Unit.'

Assistant Commissioner Kevin O'Connor will be in charge, due to his prior success providing critical information on a number of shooting cases linked to a Manhatten North gang unit by linking it to members who boasted about their crimes via Facebook!

Other cases solved by the usage of this technology include:

La Lohan Is Allowed Visitors During House Arrest, NOT Undergoing Blood Or Alcohol Testing!

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal Matters

lindsay-lohan-allowed-visitors-during-house-arrest-sentence

Good lord, is she one lucky bitch.

As we've reported, Lindsay Lohan surrendered herself to Lynwood Correctional Facility this morning at 5am, where she was fitted with an electronic ankle monitor bracelet and ordered to begin her 35-day sentence under house arrest in Venice - and according to a law enforcement source, even though she's technically an inmate of the El Lay Sheriff's Department, she's allowed to have as many visitors during that time as she wants!

As spokesperson Steve Whitmore explained:

“Miss Lohan came over for a booking this morning around 5am where it was determined that she was eligible for her ankle monitor. The Los Angeles County Probation Department recommended that she was eligible for her to do 35 days of home detention also. She will be paying for this out of her own pocket. Miss Lohan arrived in a black SUV this morning with her attorney and she was co-operative and professional. She left after about an hour and she currently has her ankle monitor.”

Under the terms of her house arrest, she is not allowed to leave the property. Her ankle bracelet is connected to her phone, which is being monitored as well by the Sheriff's Department.

However, she is NOT currently undergoing any blood or alcohol testing.

Let's hope she uses this time to really think about her mistakes, and doesn't just take advantage of the lucky break to go on a 35 day bender!

Fingers crossed she can keep her shiz together!

Two Lucky Breaks For Lindsay!

Filed under: Lindsay LohanLegal Matters

lindsay-lohan-has-two-lucky-breaks-in-stolen-necklace-case

Wow! Everything's coming up Lohan!

At least it has the potential to!

Lindsay Lohan has just gotten two potentially very lucky breaks in regards to her latest court drama regarding the stolen necklace, which could mean that she may not even have to serve jail time at all!

According to the El Lay County Probation Department as well as the El Lay County Sheriff's Department - which is responsible for the jail where she would serve her sentence - inmates with non-violent, misdemeanor offenses are routinely allowed to serve their time at home with an electronic monitoring device.

In other news, Deputy District Attorney Danette Meyers, whom the formerly hard-pAArtying actress claimed had it out for her, will no longer be handling her case, and it is now been turned over to the Los Angeles City Attorney.

But there's a catch!

A source in the office explains:

"Our office was notified this morning that the Lohan theft case is being turned over to us. The case will be handled by the City Attorney assigned to the Airport Courthouse. It's a very big file, and the City Attorney will need time to read it over. The City Attorney could object to that [serving time at home]. When Paris Hilton was released from Lywnood to serve the remainder of her sentence at home, our office objected to that, and Paris was placed back in jail. It's way to early to determine what our position will be on the issue. Lindsay is a repeat offender, period. Our office will be in communication with Lindsay's attorney to discuss the case, and what their position on the matter is."

Uh-oh! Sounds as though they're going to be just as tolerant as DA Meyers was about Lindsay's nonsense!

Stay on your best behavior, gurl!

If you keep your nose out of trouble and play your cards right, we have a feeling that this whole mess may be behind you sooner rather than later!

Custody Dramz Between Charlie And Ex WILL Continue

charlie sheen custody dramz will continue

Sometimes there are delays on the road to winning..especially when custody is at stake.

Despite the fact that Charlie Sheen and ex Brooke Mueller spent the weekend working on a custody settlement, sources say that nothing was settled and that it looks like they'll be heading to court on Tuesday.

The big issues that Brooke refuses to bend on include the following:

- She wants a monitor present at all times when Charlie has the kids over at Sober Valley Lodge his home

- She doesn't want Charlie's goddesses to be able to exercise "parental responsibilities"

Somehow, we doubt Charlie is going to be enthusiastic to allow a monitor in his house when the kids are visiting. With all those goddesses, it's pretty crowded over there already!

Guess we'll be hearing more about this VERY soon…

What do U think about Brooke's custody demands?
