Additional information is available on the Internet at http:// www.health.gov/PAguidelines/. There is strong evidence that regular physical activity promotes health and reduces risk of many chronic diseases. Over the past 40 years, many organizations, including the Federal Government, have issued physical activity recommendations. More recently, a specific physical activity guideline was included in the 2000 and 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, and the Institute of Medicine included physical activity in greater detail in its review of energy balance in the 2005 Dietary Reference Intakes for Energy, Carbohydrate, Fiber, Fat, Fatty Acids, Cholesterol, Protein, and Amino Acids. While the various recommendations illustrate scientific consensus on the health benefits of physical activity, they differ from each other in the particular recommendations and highlighted benefits. The Physical Activity Guidelines Advisory Committee will review existing scientific literature to identify where there is sufficient evidence to develop a comprehensive set of specific physical activity recommendations. The Committee will prepare a report to the Secretary that documents scientific background and rationale for the 2008 edition of the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans. The report will also identify areas where further SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\22JAN1.SGM 22JAN1

SUMMARY: The Federal Trade Commission announces the revised thresholds 
for interlocking directorates required by the 1990 amendment of Section 
8 of the Clayton Act. Section 8 prohibits, with certain exceptions, one 
person from serving as a director or officer of two competing 
corporations if two thresholds are met. Competitor corporations are 
covered by Section 8 if each one has capital, surplus, and undivided 
profits aggregating more than $10,000,000, with the exception that no 
corporation is covered if the competitive sales of either corporation 
are less than $1,000,000. Section 8(a)(5) requires the Federal Trade 
Commission to revise those thresholds annually, based on the change in 
gross national product. The new thresholds, which take effect 
immediately, are $24,001,000 for Section 8(a)(1), and $2,400,100 for 
Section 8(a)(2)(A).
