Great documentary on American President Garfield, not sure if it will play in all regions, but it's a good watch -

Diet programs revolve around a proven principle: if you burn more calories than you consume, you will lose weight. The calorie is the defining metric. And so, in the interest of public health, the Food and Drug Administration requires most packaged foods to list their calories, among other data, on labels. To help combat obesity in New York City, the Department of Health requires most chain restaurants to post calorie content on their menus and fines those who donít comply. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, a national program will soon follow.

In theory, this is a valuable reform. But thereís one glaring problem. According to the F.D.A. and the cityís health department, no one verifies the accuracy of these calorie listings. The system essentially runs on an honor system. Food vendors can list whatever numbers they want, until someone (somehow) catches a problem and files a complaint. So, as an obsessive calorie counter myself, I wanted to find out: how accurate are these labels?

For this Op-Doc video, I selected five items I might consume in an average day: a muffin, a tofu sandwich, a Subway sandwich, a Starbucks Frappuccino and a Chipotle burrito. Then, two food scientists at the New York Obesity Nutrition Research Center at St. Lukeís-Roosevelt Hospital Center painstakingly tested the caloric content of each using a device called a bomb calorimeter. Itís a precise but slow process ó taking more than an hour per sample. The results were surprising.

Long and good documentary on the artist Robert Mapplethorpe, from his childhood through his last days, Watch it quick if interested, because HBO will probably get it pulled soon.

Bernie Madoff - Scamming of America, The $50 Billion Ponzi Scheme (2015) Forbes:"If indeed, $50 billion was lost, as apparently Madoff claims, it is the largest such fraud in history, and one that might even shame the conman whose name is attached to this brand of deception
