Venuto refers to a study by Dr. Kevin Hall (an 'investigator' at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda, MD) published in the International Journal of Obesity sometime in 2008, researching the 'mechanisms regulating human body weight'.

Great British Rail Deals to London from the Southwest UK

My daughter wants to show her American friend some of the London sights, so we just went and bought our tickets in advance for tomorrow's journey. From the South West of England you can get a weekend deal for four adults at £20 each (I hope the pound sign showed up!), and two children between 5 and 15 years old for £1 each.
