Time, not calories, may leave students feeling hungry
U.S. News & World Report
New federal guidelines cap school lunches at 750 to 850 calories for high school students — more than sufficient for a growing teenager, says Rebecca Mohning, a sports nutritionist and registered dietician. Skipping breakfast is more likely the cause of the midday hunger pangs teens are complaining about, Mohning says.

    Election 2012: Food labeling
    CSPnet.com

    Pew poll finds Obama, Romney tied at 47-47
    The Hill
    A new poll from the Pew Research Center shows President Barack Obama and contender Mitt Romney are each pulling support from 47 percent of likely voters. The president, though, is leading 47-45 among all registered voters — a difference likely attributable to more than three-quarters of Republicans saying they are likely to vote, outpacing the 62 percent of Democrats who say the same.

    Editorial: Ethanol suit hints at climate split between states
    The Washington Post
    Since the Senate failed to pass a climate bill in 2010, environmentalists have looked to the states to cut the country's greenhouse-gas emissions, and their gaze has been fixed most firmly on California. The Golden State is implementing a landmark greenhouse-gas law that would do what Congress didn't: put a price on carbon-dioxide emissions through a cap-and-trade program, at least in California.
