Washington, Sept 17, 2016: An Indian Diaspora Group in America- ‘Indiaspora’ is going to organise an inaugural ball for the 45th President of the United States, which could be either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. The event is scheduled on January 18, next year in 2017 in Washington, DC.

The second presidential ball is being organised by Indian Diaspora, which would be attended by top Indian American personalities, US lawmakers and most probably the new president too.

This event would signify the emergence of the community, according to the event organisers. The event is to emphasise the importance and significance of the Indian-American community in the plight of Ameican politics.

According to the PTI reports, last time, the inaugural presidential ball was held in January 2013. Next year in 2017, there will be other things apart from inaugural ball, which will showcase the ascendancy and prominence of Indian-origin in the US, like yoga, Bollywood, and the Indian Cuisine.

Rangaswami hopes that the general elections would also result in the greater representation of the Indian Americans in the US Congress.

Also, apart from necessary congressman Ami Bera, from California, some other Indian American politicians of being elected to the US House of Representatives, including Raja Krishnamurthy from Illinois, Pramila Jayapal from Washington State and Ro Khanna from California are the prominent ones among them.

“We hope that after January, Indian-Americans could comprise of one percent of the members in the Congress,” Rangaswami added.

This event is of great importance for the Indian Diaspora living in America and will also symbolise its importance in American Political System.

Americans include fast food in their daily food habits.

It’s no secret that Americans have a taste for fast food. In fact, almost one in four Americans eats it daily, according to a report from CBS News. However, the amount of fast food consumed varies depending on the region, according to a new report from Texas-based Datafiniti, which broke down some of the data about Americans fast food habit.

For example, the central and southern states boast the highest concentrations of fast food restaurants per capita, with Alabama as the state with the most. The northeastern states have the fewest and are led by Vermont, New Jersey and New York.

“The Central region, at 4.5 fast food restaurants per 10K residents, has the highest number of fast food restaurants per capita,” the company wrote in a news release. “The South is close behind with 4.4. The Eastern region has the fewest with just 2.5 fast food restaurants per 10K residents.”

Alabama has 6.3 restaurants per 10,000 residents, the most of any state. Of the top 10 states, nine were in the South. Nebraska and Indiana were the only non-southern states in the top 10 with 5.4 and 5 restaurants per 10,000 residents respectively.

Vermont, for example, has only 1.9 fast-food restaurants per 10,000 residents. Orlando, Cincinnati and Las Vegas boast the highest number of fast food restaurants per capita, with New York having the fewest. California has four cities among the top 10, with the fewest restaurants.

McDonald’s, which is the second largest chain of fast food restaurants, can be found in every American city, and Orlando and Las Vegas have the most per capita with 20.9 and 13.9 McDonald’s per 100,000 residents.

What is the largest fast-food chain? Subway, which has 18.5 percent of all fast food restaurants. McDonald’s has 11.3 percent. Behind them, in third, is Burger King, which has 5.7 percent.

“Southern and Central states are the place to go if you love fast food; head to the East or out West if you don’t,” Datafiniti wrote. “Southern cities have abundant options for fast food, particularly in Florida; head to California if you don’t want to eat on the go.

“As for McDonald’s, it appears that this major restaurant chain has spread to every corner of America. Head to California if you don’t like the golden arches, and head basically anywhere else if you do.”  VOA
