Restaurant Menus Must Carry Calorie Counts, FDA Says - NBC
Restaurants will have to list calories right on their menus under long-awaited rules to be published by the Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday.

As expected, the rules require chain restaurants to list clear calorie information on menus. But they don’t require anything else, such as fat content, up front, and they exempt some, but not all, prepared grocery store products.

Pizza delivery chains get a little flexibility on counting the calories in toppings, but you’ll be able to see just how many calories are in movie theater popcorn and at the salad bar, as well.

It’s been one of the most contentious issues the FDA has ever had to weigh in on, commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg has said.

404 Not Found
To see the archetypal in an image is thus not a hermeneutic move. It is an imagistic move. We amplify an image by means of a myth in order not to find its archetypal meaning but in order to feed it with further images that increase its volume and depth and release its fecundity.
