In March 2004, U.S. Surgeon General Richard Carmona called attention to a health problem in the United States that, until recently, has been overlooked: childhood obesity. Carmona said that the “astounding” 15% child obesity rate constitutes an “epidemic.” Since the early 1980s, that rate has “doubled in children and tripled in adolescents.” Now more than nine million children are classified as obese.1 While the traditional response to a medical epidemic is to hunt for a vaccine or a cure-all pill, childhood obesity has proven more elusive. The lack of success of recent initiatives suggests that medication might not be the answer for the escalating problem. In recent years, policymakers and medical experts have expressed alarm about the growing problem of childhood obesity in the United States. While most agree that the issue deserves attention, consensus dissolves around how to respond to the problem. This literature review examines one approach to treating childhood obesity: medication. The paper compares the effectiveness for adolescents of the only two drugs approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for longterm treatment of obesity, sibutramine and orlistat. This examination of pharmacological treatments for obesity points out the limitations of medication and suggests the need for a comprehensive solution that combines medical, social, behavioral, and political approaches to this complex problem.

Cisco began providing electronic support to its business in 1991 using value-added networks (VANs). The first applications offered were software downloads, defects diagnoses, and technical advice. In spring 1994, Cisco moved its system to the Web and named it Cisco Connection Online (CCO). (Not to be confused with Cisco Learning connection, which is related to e-learning at Cisco, see Chapter 5.) By 2004, Cisco’s customers and reseller partners were logging onto Cisco’s website over 2 million times a month to receive technical assistance, place and check orders, or download software. The online service has been so well received that nearly 85 percent of all customer service inquiries and 95 percent of software updates are delivered online. The service is delivered globally in 16 languages. CCO is considered a model for B2B success, and several books have been written about it. Online Ordering by Customers Virtually all of Cisco’s B2B products are made to order. Before CCO, ordering a product was a lengthy, complicated, and error-prone process because it was done by fax or by “snail mail.” Cisco began deploying Web-based commerce tools in July 1995, and within a year its Internet Product Center allowed users to configure and purchase any Cisco product over the Web. Today, a business customer’s engineer can sit down at a PC, configure a product, and find out immediately if there are any errors in the configuration (feedback is given by intelligent agents).
Microsoft PowerPoint is one of the most popular presentation programs supported by both Mac and PC platforms. Microsoft PowerPoint can be used to create interactive presentations for classroom, business, or personal use. To begin Microsoft PowerPoint, go to Macintosh HD > Applications > Microsoft Office 2008 > Microsoft PowerPoint (Figure 1). Select PowerPoint Presentation from the Project Gallery if a blank document does not open. Computers crash and documents are lost all the time, so it is best to save often. Before you begin to type, you should save your document. To do this, go to File > Save As. Microsoft PowerPoint will open a dialog box (Figure 2) where you can specify the new file’s name and location where you want it saved. Once you have specified a name and a place for your new file, press the Save button. By default, the format for PowerPoint 2008 is .pptx not .ppt like in previous versions. Note: If you want to save your document on a Mac and then open it on a PC you must specify a file extension (i.e. .ppt). Usually your computer will do this for you, but if it does not you must do this process while in Save As. Once you have titled your document, you can give it a file extension by clicking in the Format box. Click PowerPoint 97-2004 Presentation for the correct file extension and make sure Append File Extension is checked.
Internet Payday Lending: How High-Priced Lenders Use the Internet to Mire Borrowers in Debt and Evade State Consumer Protections November 30, 2004 Executive Summary • Payday lending has expanded from check cashing outlets, pawn shops and payday loan outlets to the Internet. Loans are marketed, delivered and collected online at rates and terms that mire cashstrapped consumers in repeat borrowing at extremely high costs. Finance charges are in the $25 (650% APR) to $30 (780% APR) per $100 borrowed range, with built in loan flipping in many contracts. • Web sites marketing and/or delivering small loans are growing rapidly, with numerous referral sites feeding applications to actual lenders. Lenders are hard to locate, identify or contact. Some are licensed in their home states, while others hide behind anonymous domain registrations or are located outside the United States. • Banks are involved in Internet payday loans through the Automated Clearing House System (ACH) used to electronically deliver loans to consumers’ bank accounts and to withdraw payments. County Bank of Rehoboth Beach, DE, participates directly in Internet payday lending. • Internet payday lenders bypass state usury laws and consumer protections by locating in lax regulatory states and making loans without complying with licensing requirements or state protections in the borrower’s home state. State regulators, notably in Kansas, New York and Colorado, are beginning to enforce state usury and small loan laws against lenders making loans online to state consumers. • Payday loan applications made online expose consumers to privacy and security risks as bank account numbers, Social Security numbers, and other personal financial information are transmitted to lenders, often over unsecure web links. Privacy policies do not protect privacy. • Federal electronic banking laws and industry self regulatory rules for use of the Automated Clearing House (ACH) system do not adequately protect consumers who use electronic fund transfers to borrow and repay loans from bank accounts.
