Letters To Juliet/13 Going On 30 Director Gary Winick Passes Away

gary winick passes away

The world has lost another talented filmmaker at a tragically young age.

Letters To Juliet/13 Going On 30 director Gary Winick has passed away at 49 years old, after a long battle with brain cancer.

Winick contributed to the film community for his directing & producing efforts, and for launching InDigEnt, an independent film company which was recognized for showing that "digital video production had the capacity to unlock new capacities within short- and low-budget shoots."

He also spent seven years teaching at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts.

Thanks for being such a positive contributor/mentor/innovator in the film community, Gary!

Our thoughts go out Winick's family, friends, former students, and peers during this difficult time.

Knowledge Is Power! Meat To Get Nurtrition Labels In 2012

Filed under: FoodHealth

meat to get nutrition labels in 2012

We wonder if we'll be happy OR unhappy with what we find out.

The U.S. Dept of Agriculture announced today that starting Jan 1 2012, meats will require nutrition labels.

The labels will tell you everything you always wanted to know about meat (but were afraid to ask). They'll include information on calories and fat cals, total fat and saturated fat, protein, sodium, and vitamins.

Here's what New York University professor of nutrition Marion Nestle had to say about the new labels:

"This will be very helpful to people who are bewildered by what's in meat, but people will be quite shocked at the calories and fat."

Here's what Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack had to say about the labels:

"There's a growing concern about the growing problem of obesity. So I think it is appropriate for us to provide as much concrete information to consumers as we possibly can, without overwhelming them, so they can make good solid decisions about how many calories they're consuming and how much activity they need."

As long as you continue to eat meat in moderation, and stay away from overly fatty cuts, we're thinking there's no reason to get TOO nervous to learn the truth but maybe just a little nervous.

It Didn't Work For The Olsens!


And here we were thinking that these two were like 11! Silly us!

Disney tween favorites Dylan and Cole Sprouse are apparently old enough to be college-bound, and are following in the footsteps of the Olsen twins by attending New York University in the fall!

Cole is majoring in Television and Film Production with a minor in Drama, while Dylan is majoring in Fine Arts with a minor in Economics!

Congratulations, you two!

We're sure you'll be drunkenly peeing on the sides of NYC buildings again soon enough - just like you did with Adam Sandler in Big Daddy way back when!
