A new movement is underway to label foods with their ‘equivalent’ amount of the exercise. The idea is to provide icons on packages that would show a stick figure walking, running, swimming or biking next to the number of minutes required to cancel out calories consumed.
Examples: A Mocha coffee drink would take 53 minutes to walk off
*30 minutes to work-off a blueberry muffin
*43 minutes to take care of a couple of slices of cheese pizza. http://ti.me/2ca1TI6

Major face lift? It’s still roughly two years away until a 1.2-mile section of Business 40 through downtown Winston-Salem is CLOSED for repairs.
FYI: To allow room for longer merge ramps, six full or partial interchanges in the stretch will be reduced to three: full interchanges at Peters Creek Parkway and Cherry-Marshall streets, and a partial interchange at Main Street.
“The most important thing to do is to start planning now! During the closure everyone needs to plan for additional time due to congestion during peak period” states Pat Ivy (NC DOT division engineer in Forsyth County)
Note: The two-year Business 40 re-vamp will likely start in late 2018. And be completed by November 2020.
