Results of recent study on childhood obesity found that the disease is increasing in 2-to 5-year-old children, especially in boys. Previous reports had showed a stabilization or a decrease in childhood obesity. The recent study in the journal Pediatrics left one Texas Tech obesity researcher dispirited.

“It is a sad situation, but not at all surprising,” Dr. Nik Dhurandhar, chair of Texas Tech’s Department of Nutritional Sciences, says. “We don’t know where adult obesity is going and it shows that children are no exception. It’s in the same epidemic that is going on.”

…We’re going to see a wonderful violinist, Simone Porter, perform the Barber violin concerto…It’s a great mixture. When you hear the Barber, the lyrical lines of the Barber, contrasted to all the other bounciness that going on with this concert, it’s going to be so much fun…and she’ll be coming out for the finale.
