BBC NEWS | Health | Good food boosts earning power

“Giving babies nutritious food could significantly increase their earning power as adults, new research suggests.

The findings, published in the British medical journal The Lancet, were based on a three-decade study of Guatemalan males from birth.

Those who had been well-fed soon after they were born earned almost 50% more than those who had not.” – Fulham offers American refuge

From the page: “For over two centuries, the USA has stood as a beacon for European immigrants in search of increased opportunity and personal freedom. It seems, though, that in the world of football at least, the favour is not one readily returned.

Wild-haired, guitar-plucking defender Alexi Lalas is still the only American to have plied his trade in Italy’s Serie A. Danny Szetela is his only countryman in Spain’s La Liga, and he has yet to make his league debut for Racing Santander, while Benfica recently made Freddy Adu the sole American working in Portugal’s top flight. Germany, Scandinavia and the Netherlands are exceptions to the rule of US exemption, but even in those friendly ports American players are few and far between.

There is, however, one rather gleaming example of a club in a major European League where Americans are more than welcome. Fulham’s Craven Cottage is currently home to no less than five native-born past and present USA internationals.”
