FORTUNE -- At this year's 33rd edition of Spain's ARCOmadrid contemporary art fair, it was pretty easy to tell where you stood in the art world hierarchy. If you visited over the weekend, you were one of a diminished group of 100,000 or so civilians who forked out between 20 and 40 euros ($27.50 and $55) to bask in art that ran from canonized names like photorealist painter Richard Estes to up-and-comers like Mexican installation artist Héctor Zamora. But if you attended on Wednesday or Thursday, you were likely one of the 400 or so rich folks and art institution bigwigs who'd been invited to Spain, your trip paid in full, in the hopes that you might drop some serious dough on art. All major art fairs have VIP programs designed to attract big spenders. But ARCO's dedication of 20% of its 4.5 million euro budget to inviting buyers and promoting the fair overseas shows how Spain's economic crisis -- now more than five years old -- has forced the fair to turn its attention from national m

Fit and Fat? Yes, you can be fit and overweight within reason. The trick is to control your weight so you can be physically active. There are plenty of people who get regular physical activity, yet they are overweight. A recent study showed people who are fit and carrying extra pounds may not be at increased risk of developing or dying from heart disease or cancer when compared to people of healthy weight.1 Likewise, thin people are not necessarily healthy if they carry excess belly fat. What matters more than weight is the amount and type of body fat. Studies show that fat around the midsection or belly fat may be more harmful than fat elsewhere on the body.2 Why? Belly or visceral fat embedded into muscles and around vital organs can have a metabolic impact compared to subcutaneous fat, which is the type of fat that simply sits beneath the skin like on your hips. Abdominal fat is also a predictor of risk for obesity-related diseases such as Type 2 diabetes, elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart disease. Generally ladies should strive for a waist circumference below 35 inches and men, 40 inches according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Eat Whatever You Want As Long You Exercise It might sound logical that if you work out, you can eat whatever you want, but this is usually not the most effective way to lose weight. Believe it or not, it is easier not to eat the chocolate cake than it is to burn it off. One slice of decadent chocolate cake could contain as many as 500 calories and require up to five miles of jogging to burn it off. Losing weight occurs when you create a calorie deficit either by eating fewer calories, burning calories through exercise or a combination of both. Diet plans that include cutting calories and regular physical activity tend to be the most successful and sustainable. Further, the quality of the food you consume and regular physical activity are important to overall health, regardless of weight. So the next time you want to indulge in a calorie-rich food or beverage, enjoy a smaller portion and account for it in your daily calorie budget. Health Only Improves When You Lose Lots of Weight Seeking to reach your healthy weight is an excellent goal in support of good health. However, you may benefit from losing as little as 5-10 percent of your body weight. Studies show that even small amounts of weight loss may improve blood cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels, blood pressure and lower risk for heart disease. Celebrate small victories on your journey toward a healthier weight. The payoff – people who lose weight slowly are more likely to keep it off. Skipping Breakfast Slashes Calories Studies show that breakfast eaters have healthier weights compared to breakfast skippers. Skipping breakfast or any meal usually results in overeating later in the day. Enjoying a nutritious meal in the morning sets the stage for the day. A breakfast that contains protein and fiber may keep blood sugar levels stable and hunger at bay until lunchtime. Your blood sugar and energy levels are low when you wake up in the morning. To get your body moving and energized after a long night’s rest, you need fuel in the form of a healthy breakfast. Another benefit, people who eat breakfast tend to have healthier diets overall, ones that are higher in nutrients. Breakfast may help you keep the weight off. We have learned from successful losers, the National Weight Control Registry of those who have lost weight and kept it off, make eating breakfast a daily habit. Reconsider where you slash calories in your diet and keep in mind you may save calories if you start your day the healthy way with a nutritious and delicious breakfast.

STATE OF TENNESSEE TENNESSEE COMMISSION ON CHILDREN AND YOUTH Andrew Johnson Tower, Ninth Floor 710 James Robertson Parkway Nashville, Tennessee 37243-0800 (615) 741-2633 (FAX) 741-5956 1-800-264-0904 TO: FROM: DATE: RE: Members of the Tennessee General Assembly and Other Readers Linda O’Neal, Executive Director January 28, 2011 Resource Mapping 2010 Report Revised As required by TCA 3703-116, on April 15, 2010, the Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth transmitted the first Resource Mapping Report to the General Assembly. We have continued to review and discuss the resource mapping information with a variety of stakeholders across Tennessee. There has been great interest in this report and the information it reveals. As a result of the diligence and persistence of Melissa Staley, TCCY resource mapping director, in January 2011, we discovered there was a major omission from the report. The Department of Education was extremely diligent in reporting its expenditures for the many programs and services it provides to Tennessee schools and Tennessee children. In fact, it provided the highest level of detail in reporting expenditures of any department. However, in the focus on programs and services, submission of the most substantial part of DOE expenditures, and indeed the most substantial overall expenditure Tennessee makes for children, funds for the Basic Education Program (BEP), were not submitted. BEP funds in FY 2007 and FY 2008 were more than $3 billion each year. Upon discovering this omission, the Department of Education immediately submitted the BEP expenditure data, and TCCY staff revised the 2010 Report to include the information. The inclusion of BEP dollars results in changes in many of the charts and graphs that are now included in this report. To the best of our knowledge, the Resource Mapping 2010 Report Revised now includes all state and federal expenditures for children in the Tennessee state budget. Collection of such a massive amount of data continues to be a very challenging process. We are grateful for the collaborative support from staff in the 25 state agencies that submit data for these reports. Data submission for the 2011 report is well underway. We look forward to providing a report in April 2011 that includes expenditures for FY 2009 and FY2010. We continue to stand ready to answer questions and appreciate feedback regarding ways we can improve this report.

Global climate change will have a strong impact on development in coming decades. The absence of strong global action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions will hinder future development; conversely, smart climate policies can drive cleaner growth, resulting in a range of economic and social benefits. Through the Global Climate Change Initiative (GCCI) and other climate-related USG programs, the United States will integrate climate change considerations into relevant foreign assistance through the full range of bilateral, multilateral, and private mechanisms to foster low-carbon growth, promote sustainable and resilient societies, and reduce emissions from deforestation and land degradation. The Administration is working to make our climate financing efficient, effective, and innovative, based on country-owned plans, and focused on achieving measurable results. As part of President Obama’s commitments in Copenhagen, we are working together with our partners to provide “fast start” climate finance approaching $30 billion during the period 2010-2012 to help meet the adaptation and mitigation needs of developing countries, including deploying clean energy technologies. To this end we will use the full range of mechanisms – bilateral, multilateral and private – to invest strategically in building lasting resilience to unavoidable climate impacts; reduce emissions from deforestation and land degradation; and, support low-carbon development strategies and the transition to a sustainable, clean energy economy. Investing in Clean Energy: Clean energy programs reduce greenhouse gas emissions from energy generation and energy use by accelerating the deployment of clean energy technologies, policies, and practices. The U.S. will deliver much of its assistance for clean energy deployment through multilateral trust funds that take advantage of existing large-scale greenhouse gas reduction opportunities and establish investment channels for and leverage of the larger private sector financing as demand for cleaner solutions increases. Bilateral efforts complement multilateral investments by helping to shape policy and regulatory environments that can ensure long-term sustainability. In its FY 2011 Budget, the Administration focused on four areas, including energy sector reforms that are preconditions for sustainable clean energy development, energy efficiency, low carbon energy, and clean transport. Promoting Sustainable Landscapes: To help countries that put forward ambitious programs to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+), the United States announced it would dedicate $1 billion over 2010-2012 as part of the U.S. contribution towards the “fast start financing” reflected in the Copenhagen Accord. The U.S. commitment recognizes the crucial role of REDD+ to reduce emissions as part of Sustainable Landscapes programs that include forests and land use. The United States supports REDD+ activities because they offer cost-effective ways to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions while providing other sustainable development benefits. The Administration’s strategy document, “Strategic Choice for United States Fast Start Financing for REDD+,” will guide the implementation of efforts of U.S. agencies. Supporting Climate Change Resilience and Adaptation: Helping low-income countries reduce their vulnerability to climate change impacts will reduce the social, environmental, and economic...
