SHELLEY RATTET of Framingham, Mass., has lost about 25 pounds these past few months. It was the first time the 55-year-old clinical psychologist had lost weight in 10 years. One of the changes she made: Making sure that she ate a good breakfast. Mark Mattson, a neuroscientist at the National Institute on Aging, disdains the morning repast. He hasn't eaten breakfast in 20 years, ever since he started running early in the mornings. He says he's skinny and healthy and never felt better.

And like Humpty Dumpty after his fall, there's no putting it together again.

Kellogg Co. on Monday reported third-quarter net sales of $3.7 billion and also announced a four-year plan to cut costs that will include reducing its global work force by 7%, or about 2,000 jobs.

In the 58 years since the late Kellogg Co. founder established the W. K. Kellogg Foundation, it has dished out more than $1 billion on programs to overcome the problems of hunger, disease and ignorance--both at home and abroad.

The ingot, as big as a loaf of bread, is the largest known gold bar to come out of California's Gold Rush.
