Obsession- wheelchair displays
written by Mimi573, September 17, 2010
Ok, this obsession may not be totally pc- every once in a while I pass a wheelchair retailer, and I always stop to notice their displays. The idea of artfully posing wheelchairs for sale is sad/hilarious, since no one is going to be lured in for an impulse buy. Notable examples include; lots of wheelchairs in a row on the front lawn of a store off the 880 S, as though marching off to a party; and the wheelchair store on Stone Way in Seattle, which features wheelchairs at multiple levels surrounded by small accessories.. flowers?

Sugar: The New Tobacco?

Proposed bill would require warning labels on sugary drinks Will soda and other saccharine libations soon come with a health warning? They will if it’s up to our state senator, Bill Monning (D-Carmel). On Feb. 27, Monning proposed first-of-its-kind legislation that would require a consumer warning label be placed on sugar-sweetened beverages sold in California. SB 1000, also known as the Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Safety Warning Act, was proposed to provide vital information to consumers about the harmful effects of consuming sugary drinks, such as sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweetened teas.
