NY officials insist on putting calorie counts on fast food menus

By Margarita Snegireva. New York City officials insist on putting calorie counts on fast food menus hoping this will make people eat healthier food.

The city Board of Health planned to vote Tuesday for a second time on the requirement for major fast-food chains, which make up about 10 percent of the city's restaurants. A federal judge struck it down in September, but indicated that the rule would be acceptable if it were expanded to include more restaurants.

If the measure is approved, any large fast-food chain would have to list calorie counts prominently on their menu boards. Several chains, like McDonald's and Burger King, have the information available, but don't list it on the menu boards that customers read before ordering.

City officials hope the rule would curb obesity by making people aware of the thousands of calories that can be packed into some of the meals. Health Commissioner Thomas Frieden said Monday he hoped the chains would also respond by offering healthier options.

So Donald Trump referred to "shithole" countries in a meeting on immigration. Or did he? In denying the allegations, claiming that was "not the language used", while others state that was the language used, either he, or they, are lying. The bottom line is, what to make out of the "shithole incident"?
