Gordon Institute Publishes Study on Americans' Eating and Exercise Habits

In its last survey conducted a decade ago, the Gordon Institute found that many Americans were not as active as they should be and often ate excessively. Now, the Atlanta-based nonprofit organization has released the comprehensive results of a new survey on the same topic.

According to the survey, 45 percent of Americans exercise once a week for 30 minutes a day or more. An additional 25 percent exercise three times a week for 30 minutes a day or more, and a further 10 percent exercise at least 30 minutes every day of the week. -[1]-.

Of the Americans who do exercise, 65 percent say they jog slowly, 25 percent say they lift weights, and the remaining 10 percent say they walk long distances or perform other activities. -[2]-. About 40 percent of this group say they don't make any effort to regulate their food intake, while about 60 percent say they strive to eat healthily at least some of the time. -[3]-.

These results make for an interesting comparison to a similar survey the Gordon Institute published 20 years ago. In that survey, only 23 percent of Americans said they exercised at least once a week. Furthermore, the percentage of those monitoring their food intake and endeavoring to make smart food choices has risen 11 percent. -[4]-.

16. What can be inferred about the Gordon Institute?
17. What type of exercise did most survey participants prefer?
18. What does the most recent survey indicate about Americans?
19. In which of the positions marked [1], [2], [3], and [4] does the following sentence best belong? "The rest of them say they do not work out at all."

Sylvie Depardieu,
Small Business Association of Windover,
P.O.Box 7465,
Windover, VT

Dave Mitchell
Manager, Sunrise health Foods
154 Beecham Avenue, Unit 3A
Windover, VT

Dear Mr. Mitchell,
As a long-time member of the Small Business Association, I'm sure you're as upset as the rest of us about the recent hydro rate increase of 29 percent which took effect in October. The difference in our monthly electricity bills is considerable, and for small businesses such as ours that are struggling to make ends meet, I'm sure I don't need to tell you what the increase could mean in the long term.
I wanted to let you know that, as President of the Small Business Association of Windover, I have taken the initiative to contact the State Corporation Commission on behalf of the Association to voice the concerns of small business owners in the area and to register our opposition to this rate increase.
In doing so, I was informed that final approval for this increase has not yet been given to Vermont Hydro by the Commission. Commissioners will decide in the near future whether to approve all, some, or none of the requested 29 percent increase. If the full 29 percent increase is not approved, customers will receive a refund for any overcharges (so save your monthly statements).
This pending decision gives us an opportunity to prevent the increase. That is why I am writing to all of the members of the Association to ask for your support. As customers of Vermont Hydro, we can all contact the Commission and register our opposition to this rate increase. Now, it is your turn to be proactive. Call to register your opposition and pass the word along to businesses in other areas served by Vermont Hydro; even your friends and family could call - every little bit helps.
You can call the State Corporation Commission at (800)553-7845 between 8:15 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. You will be directed to leave your name, address, telephone number and a statement of opposition. The call takes only 2 to 3 minutes. Every call is tabulated and will hopefully make a difference in the final decision made by the commissioners.

To Whom It May Concern:
I recently purchased a T-201 E-Klavier, and have been very satisfied. It has so many useful functions! If anything, it has too many. (It took me a whole afternoon to figure out how to use it properly; but, then again, I'm not exactly skilled with electronic gadgets.) It really lives up to the promises in your literature. The sound is excellent. My son-in-law, who is a concert pianist, was impressed, so that says a lot.

Anyway, the main reason I'm writing is that my little granddaughter spilled her grape juice all over the top of the keyboard. I mopped most of it up at the time, but some got under the lid and now it's a sticky mess in there. I tried using a damp cloth as the user manual recommends, but it's just not coming off. I looked through all of the material on the website, too, but I think this problem is rather unique. I'm worried about ruining the finish, so I'm asking if there are any soaps or detergents that I could safely use.

Thanks a lot,
Randy Wilson

Tampa Weekly

Is franchising right for you? (continued from page 1)

As I learned when I spoke to experts at the recently held Franchise Expo in Fort Myers, franchising is not for everyone. Franchise Friendly's Sam Romanek told me, "Franchises may pose fewer risks than start-ups, but they may not be a good fit if you value total independence and control."

As for choosing the right franchise, FBA's Barbara Allred advises doing your research. "Don't just look at a company's recent performance," she said. "Find out how the overall industry is doing." For instance, she cited the promising outlook for home services and a diminishing one for personal fitness. "Fitness clubs have boomed in recent years," she added, "but the market is now saturated."

To: Adam Johansson
From: Kristina Hausmann
Date: February 17
Subject: Urgent event update

Dear Mr. Johansson,

There are some changes to the schedule for tonight's fundraising event. Professor Trevelyan's flight from San Francisco has been delayed. He will not be able to arrive at the venue in time to speak during his original time slot. So, we will serve dinner 20 minutes early, and Mr. Trevelyan can speak immediately after. Now, the schedule has already been sent out, and we have no time to reprint it anyway. Consequently, it would be good if you could briefly mention these changes when you give your talk.

I'll be at the venue in about 15 minutes to make sure preparations are going smoothly and to meet with the caterers and help them set up. If you have any questions, call me at 555-7246.

Best wishes,
Kristina Hausmann

Established 24 years ago, the organization has assisted homeless around the region in finding food, accommodation, counseling, and employment. Guests were presented with short talks, a selection of performances, and a banquet dinner.
