Today's paper had a piece about obesity now being a reality for 25% of the U.S. population. Children are especially prone (they "inherit" their parent's habits) and about one-third of all youth 18 and under are either overweight or obese. My daughter, Isabella Acosta Barna is on the Youth Advisory Board for a Healthier Generation as a member of the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. The Alliance is fighting childhood obesity.
My friend, Judy Shasek, has put her uber creative self to the task of getting America up and on their feet. She's invented a mouse pad that you can stand on to play video games such as Bejeweled and other common games. She called her invention, FootGaming. FootGaming has huge potential in education and recreation markets.
Isabella and I helped her out with a video she produced to introduce FootGaming. It was a lot of fun to be actors. Here's a clip of the FootGaming video.
