YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

Restaurant

Soy in a regular part of our diet. It has been for the past 3 thousand years. Soy is served at restaurants and can be found in almost every form, from burgers to nutrition bars. In fact, people who don't know beans about nutrition even know that soy makes for delightfully healthy snacks.

Soy is a source of protein containing nine essential amino acids and is the only plant which is equivalent in amino acids to animal protein. The FDA says that eating 25 grams of soy protein per day as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.

US NATIONAL DEBT

Idea

United States' national debt is the amount owed by the federal government of the United States. The measure of the public debt is the value of the outstanding federal securities at a point of time that have been issued by the Treasury and other federal government agencies.

Neither one of the politicians who have announced their candidacy for the nation's top position has been willing to say how they will solve the national debt.

According to Congressional Budget Office projections, a $534 billion deficit for 2016 is $100 billion more than in 2015.

Booze not necessary

Restaurant

I personally know a few casual and other regular drinkers, where on any given 24 hour cycle they might have a few drinks. But after my divorce to a woman who drank, when it came to dating, I would eventually learn that I preferred gals who were teetotalers.

The Black Whale

Restaurant

This is City Island's oldest restaurant. When they re-opened The Black Whale on City Island in 1998, the goal was to continue the tradition of the infamous Black Whale of the 60s and 70s while updating the restaurant to serve today's needs.

Images: 

TV news is getting to be old hat and the newly accepted method to keep up with current affairs is online, according to recently released data. Of the 18-to-24-year-olds surveyed, 28% cited social media as their main news source, compared with 24% for TV.

Should tipping be necessary?

Restaurant

Tipping may not be a good system, whether its done in America, Europe, or Asia. In fact, in many of these countries tipping is not a part of the national culture.

In countries where gratuities are the norm, some employers pay workers with the expectation that their wages will be supplemented by tips. Some folks criticize the inherent social awkwardness in transactions that involve tipping, the inconsistency of tipping for some services but not similar ones, and the irrationality of basing tips on price, rather than the amount and quality of service.
