A system, method, and apparatus for determining indirect distances are disclosed. An example apparatus includes a case including a laser device configured to determine a distance to a point at which a laser beam reflects off of an object. The example apparatus also comprises a client device that includes a processor configured to receive a first distance to a first point on the object and a second distance to a second point on the object. The processor is also configured to receive first and second angular movement data from a gyroscope and determine linear movement data from an accelerometer. The example processor determines, as an indirect measurement, a distance between the first point and the second point on the object using the first distance, the second distance, the first angular movement data, the second angular movement data, and the acceleration data.

Consumer demands and retailer preferences for more naturally nutritious, no additives/preservatives, and less-processed foods are restructuring the global food industry and sending US sales of natural foods and beverages soaring. Despite the weak economy, two-thirds of U.S./ Canadian food retailers added natural/organic items to their product offerings, and 65% of retailers enjoyed increased natural/organic dollar sales for the month of May 2011. Sales of foods/beverages in natural product stores reached $21.3 billion, up 7% in 2010. In conventional food, drug, and mass merchandisers, sales of natural/organic foods are $16.5 h, up 7.6% in 2010. Label claims declaring no chemical additives are very important to about half (47%) of food shoppers; no preservatives claims are attractive to more than one- third. Sales of foods/ drinks carrying a no preservatives claim topped $14.5 b in 2009, while sales of natural claims reached $22 b.

The consumer food products industry has witnessed significant growth of sales in the year 2010 and is expected to increase in the year 2011. Supermarkets continue to dominate consumer food spending with a 49% share of sales in 2010. Households with incomes of less than $35,000 are projected to represent nearly 40% of the US households by 2015. Low-income households are expected to deliver $115 billion in incremental consumer packaged goods (CPG) spending in future. Low-income shoppers are driving growth in fresh bread/rolls, yogurt, salty snacks, natural cheese, and cold cereal, among other sectors. Affluent ethnic households, which represent $110 billion in purchasing power, are another overlooked market segment. Sales of foods/drinks formulated without preservatives topped $14.5 billion in 2009, sales of products with a natural claim reached $22 billion. Consumers are moving toward products that are naturally high in vitamins/minerals and those that have been blended with other foods to create even higher nutrient levels.

The article details America's changing eating patterns, preferences, and priorities in the present uncertain times. Consumer rituals around food, beverages, beauty, and health continue to center around the home. More than half of consumers serve more simple and less expensive meals at home, 55% eat out less often, and 42% bring snacks, foods, and/or drinks from home to work or school in order to save money. More than 11% of all adult eating today includes foods or beverages consumed within one hour of purchase, spurring convenience store and drug store food sales to new heights. When eating dinner alone, today's single consumers are also more likely to replace frozen meals with fresh, less processed alternatives. Moreover, these meals are likely to be more indulgent. At the same time, the American culinary movement is beginning to build momentum. About one-quarter of consumers are ordering more traditional, familiar flavors than they were ordering a year ago.
