At Emily Adams' ballet studio in Greensboro, N.C., Bran Pace stood out. Not just because he was one of her few male students, or because he was a college-aged beginner, or because of his angelic good looks. He stood out because at the end of class, when all the other students went home, Bran stayed."Let's do it again," he would say.So Emily Adams would stay late too, watching Pace do the steps over and over until he got them just right, working long past the point when other students would give up in frustration, finishing a dance combination only to start it all over again.

Unless there are confirmed reports about certain players planning to...

Another magic bullet is headed for your supermarket.Recently, the Food and Drug Administration approved an additional label claim for foods that lower your cholesterol. Recently the FDA gave the go-ahead to oat products because so many studies have shown that if you eat your Cheerios or oatmeal regularly, as part of an overall healthy diet (low in fat, high in fiber, you know the drill), the soluble fiber they contain can play a part in further lowering your cholesterol.Now the FDA has reviewed the scientific evidence and concluded that psyllium, a type of ground seed husk, is even more powerful at lowering cholesterol.

He shares his Triple Crown picks and betting tips with The Baltimore Sun each year.] California Chrome hardly broke a sweat in his last four races, despite being in increasingly competitive fields. He appears to have push-button acceleration and is a man amongst boys on the west coast. One could argue that he has yet to show what he can do if really tested.

I have come across several recipes that call for quick-cooking barley but have been unable to find any in local stores. Any ideas where quick-cooking barley is sold or who the manufacturer is? Mother's sells a quick-cooking barley that tends to be found in health-food stores and in the health-food sections of supermarkets. You can order directly from Mother's at mothersnatural.com (call 630-595-8919). Frankly, I had never heard of quick-cooking barley, so this question gave me an opportunity to learn something.

About a month ago, my son-in-law started taking one regular Bayer aspirin each morning and one Bayer PM before going to sleep. Two weeks into this regimen, he started bleeding from the mouth while he was sleeping. He stopped taking the aspirin, and the bleeding stopped as well. Is this a possible side effect? Aspirin can thin the blood by interfering with the sticky part of blood called platelets. Some people are especially susceptible to this effect, so even a standard dose might trigger bleeding.

"It is better to be cruel than weak. " - Theon Greyjoy Whoa. Did Theon Greyjoy really just kill Bran and Rickon Stark?! Moreover: Why is this show so insanely cruel to its only honorable family? The seventh episode in the second season of"Game of Thrones"ended with Greyjoy's soliders hanging the tarred bodies of two young boys, leading the people of Winterfell (and viewers) to presume that he had killed Bran and Rickon (who I believe are only 9 and 4 years old, respectively)

When beauty sees a beastIn our appearance-conscious society, almost everyone feels insecure about his or her looks at times. But for a few thousand adults, imagined cosmetic "defects" create a disabling obsession. American psychiatrists are just now addressing this problem, which they call body dysmorphic disorder, and the best treatment thus far is drug therapy. People with the disorder agonize over features that most others consider normal. In their minds, large noses, thinning hair or big mouths become grotesque eyesores.

Do you play "spin" nutrition?Did you panic when your produce department ran short of broccoli for a few days?Have you suddenly switched to red wine?Were you first in line for oat bran?Spin nutrition happens when nutrition science is reported with a RTC "consumer-y spin" that turns it into a magic cure.Don't get me wrong. It's about time we put some science behind nutritional recommendations.But context is crucial.There is no single food that can make up for a lifetime of continuing dietary indiscretion.

Here is the fourth installment of an attempt at a premature poll for next season. The Top 20 will be broken up into four installments with Tuesday's post involving teams ranked from Nos. 5 to 1. Thursday featured Nos. 20 to 16 , Friday Nos. 15 to 11 , and Monday Nos. 10 to 6 . Wednesday will include three schools not mentioned in the poll that could make some waves. Unless there are confirmed reports about certain players planning to use fifth years of eligibility, this space will assume that seniors in 2013 will not return next year.
