Cereal killer?

Kellogg, the Battle Creek, Mich.-based cereal maker, has launched an initiative to crack the breakfast market in China.

With the nasty stuff that has turned up in China's milk over the years, that bowl of Chinese Rice Krispies might very well not only snap, crackle and pop, but also emit an eye-burning greenish gas.

Chained to your desk: The nation's cubicle serfs can still get in a yoga-style workout without leaving their posts, thanks to a new program called Centeredbeing.

The poses include Downward-Facing Revenue Forecast, One-Legged Reduction in Force, and Feathered Peacock NSFW Website.

You are what you eat: A registered dietitian warns us to exercise some healthy skepticism when it comes to fad diets, especially ones that eliminate entire food groups.

Guess that means we can safely forget about diets that exclude these important food groups: pasta alfredo, rocky road ice cream and the entire menu at Carl's Jr.
