calorie burner Peach
Cost: $? 12 oz
Active ingredients: Caffeine, Green Tea Extract
Rating: 6.5 out of 10

Enviga is the first drink from Nestea and Coca cola, which is after studies claiming to actually help you burn calories. This might not exactly be an energy drink but with 100mg of Caffeine, it definitely fits in with other energy drinks, which range from 80mg to 280mg of caffeine per serving. This is about the same as an average cup of coffee which contains 80-140 milligrams. So does this drink help you to burn calories as the can claims? "The cans per day of Enviga have been shown to increase calorie burning by 60-100 calories in a healthy normal weight 18-35 year olds."

I don't know I guess you would have to drink three cans a day for a month or so, a challenge I might have to take on just to give this a real test. Well as an energy drink, it seems weaker than most, but has a fairly pleasant peach taste, with only 5 calories it has a pretty good flavor. I think the biggest problem is the slightly pungent aftertaste, it tastes a bit like sweat, others didn't notice this after taste, which can probably better be described by saying if you just clumped up all the little hairs on the outside of a peach and put those in your mouth you would have this bitter odd flavor, luckily the aftertaste doesn't last long and the peach green tea flavor is far more noticeable. I don't think this will hit well with the young kids running around and staying up all night, but if your looking for a afternoon burst of energy after lunch and you want a low calorie tasty drink, I guess it might be worth giving this drink a shot, especially if you already like tea.

Slaying Dragon Breath
Wednesday. 2.21.07 9:36 pm
We've all found ourselves chatting with someone whose breath could easily wilt a flower. With more than 90 million people suffering from chronic bad breath (also called halitosis), that's a lot of wilted flowers. If you (or someone you regularly smooch) has an attack of bad breath that even Altoids won't fix, try these eight simple tips to fix the problem.

1. Don't let your tongue become a dirty carpet - A clean tongue goes a long way to warding off bad breath, says Stephen Z. Wolner, a dentist in private practice in New York City. "Your tongue microscopically is like a shaggy carpet. There are millions of filaments on your tongue that trap tiny food particles and bacteria," he says. Get in the habit of regularly cleaning your tongue using a toothbrush, the edge of a spoon, or a tongue cleaner. If you have any mouth guards or oral devices, make sure to clean them thoroughly before putting them back in your mouth.

2. Chew gum like it's going out of style - "When you chew gum it makes you salivate, and the more saliva you have in your mouth the fewer bacteria you have. It not only mechanically washes bacteria out, but we have antiseptic and enzymes in our saliva that kill bacteria," says Wolner.

3. Drink more water - You might not even notice you're thirsty, he says, so make drinking water a habit, because water will help keep the bacteria in your mouth to a minimum. Drinking water has a lot of health benefits, and preventing bad breath is one of them.

24 Drinking Game!!
Thursday. 2.22.07 11:31 am

Jack Bauer has this habit of using the word damn it in his hit TV show 24. The game is designed to have all players take a shot (your poison of choice) everytime your hear him say the word damn it in the show. I think if you were to watch a marathon of 24 you will be stone drunk after the first two episodes!

Salmonella in my Peanut Butter
Thursday. 2.22.07 3:10 pm


Peanut butter is supposedly as safe as flowers – well it was, because nowadays eating from the wrong jar could very well send you to the hospital. Although salmonella is usually associated with eggs, chickens, undercooked meat, reptiles or unwashed hands and eating, peanut butter has become a source too.

The infamous contamination at the ConAgra plant may have been caused by dirty jars or equipment, according to government and industry officials. In the production process, peanuts are usually heated to temperatures that are so high that they kill germs, therefore they can’t be suspected of having generated the contamination.

A Texas couple filed charges against ConAgra after their 5-year-old daughter and 2-year-old son got sick. The lawsuit seeks damages for medical bills, pain and suffering, and caps the damages at $75,000 for each child, their lawyer said.

It's one of at least three lawsuits filed against ConAgra Foods, which is recalling all Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter made at its Sylvester, Georgia, plant. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said 288 persons, from 39 states, had become infected with salmonella since last August. About 85 percent of the infected people said they ate peanut butter.

No deaths have been reported.

Prince Harry to serve in Iraq
Thursday. 2.22.07 3:36 pm
By TARIQ PANJA Associated Press Writer

Britain's Prince Harry salutes his father Prince Charles (not shown) as he leaves, following The Sovereign's Parade at the Royal Military Academy, where Harry received his military commission at Sandhurst, England in this Wednesday, April 12, 2006 file photo. The Ministry of Defense ended speculation that had been swirling for about a week by announcing Thursday, Feb. 22, 2007, the 22-year-old prince will be sent to Iraq with his Blues and Royals regiment in May or June. Harry, a second lieutenant, will assume a troop commander's role.
LONDON (AP) - He's the redheaded son of the late Princess Diana, the rowdy royal known more for dancing until dawn than waking for battle. But Britain's party prince, Harry, is getting his wish and going to Iraq with his Blues and Royals regiment.

Royal officials announced Thursday that 22-year-old Harry would be deployed to Basra, confirming the tabloid speculation about the future of the best-recognized tank commander in Britain. His regiment is expected to complete a six-month tour.

The prince, a second lieutenant, has been trained to lead a team of 12 men in four armored reconnaissance vehicles, and could become the first royal to see active combat since his uncle Prince Andrew served in the Falklands war against Argentina in 1982.

Word of the deployment follows only one day after Prime Minister Tony Blair said British troop numbers in Iraq will be cut by 1,600 in the coming months. The daily tabloid newspaper, the Sun, opined _ "1,600 out ... One in."

Britain will hand over most of security in the Basra area to Iraqi security forces, concentrating its troops at the city's palace and air base. Iraqi insurgent groups looking to target Cornet Wales _ as his rank is called in the Blues and Royals _ will not have to look far to find him _ which has led to concern his presence could mean extra risks for his men.

A higher rank gives your blog greater credibility in technorati. If you don’t already have a technorati account, get one. After you have setup the main settings, such as your profile, you need to claim your blog. Go to Account and then down the page to Your Blogs.
