Neglect of car maintenance is a prime cause of highway accidents and deaths. The Car Care Council says 5% of cars inspected after accidents have safety defects such as faulty brakes, defective steering, or worn tires. Brake failure is the leading cause of traffic accidents attributed to a mechanical defect. If you're going on a driving vacation this year, take a few minutes to build safety into the plans.

Hog prices are down and feed costs are going up, so it is going to be rougher on pork producers this year, an Agriculture Department analyst says. Profits dropped in the fourth quarter of 1987 and "will probably continue lower" through most of this year, according to economist Kevin Bost of the department's Economic Research Service.

Food prices will rise modestly in 1996 despite tight grain supplies, the U.S. Department of Agriculture said Thursday, but the cost of fresh fruits and vegetables will surge. Food prices are likely to climb 2% to 4% during the new year, with abundant supplies of meat holding down overall food price inflation, the department said. Some analysts disagreed, projecting increases of 4% to 5% because of this year's small grain crops.

Retirement won't destroy a good marriage nor will it salvage a bad one, say two researchers who interviewed more than 200 couples to determine the effect of retirement on marriage. As time goes by, Mature Outlook magazine reports, more couples will be leaving their jobs. "Retirement neither ruins nor resurrects marriage," said Barbara Vinick.

More than 15% of China's city dwellers believe their living standards have dropped in the last 10 years, and almost one-quarter of students are pessimistic about China's political future, a survey published Wednesday showed. But the official Outlook Weekly magazine said that the opinion poll, in which 4,244 residents of 42 cities took part, showed overall that China's 200 million urban dwellers are "full of confidence" about the country's future and support its reform program.

In a further blow to a government battered by accusations of graft, India's senior anticorruption official resigned Thursday after the Supreme Court ruled his appointment illegal because of his involvement in a 1992 scandal that is now a legal case. Polayil Joseph Thomas, appointed in September to head India's Vigilance Commission, stepped down after the court's ruling on a petition challenging his appointment. India's coalition government, led by the Congress Party, has been battered in recent months by alleged irregularities involving sports, telecommunications and real estate deals potentially involving tens of billions of dollars, making Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, 78, appear tired and increasingly ineffectual.

"Mona Lisa" has fascinated art historians and inspired love songs for centuries, but her ineffable gaze is not that of a mysterious woman, a researcher says. It's that of artist Leonardo da Vinci. A computer researcher at American Telephone & Telegraph Co.'s Bell Laboratories juxtaposed a red chalk self-portrait of da Vinci with "Mona Lisa" and found that the eyes, hairline, cheeks and nose were identical, according to the January issue of Art & Antiques magazine.

KOLKATA, India - India-born Monica Liu was 9 in 1962 when her family was loaded into box cars for an eight-day rail trip to an internment camp in the western Indian desert. The Lius were among about 3,000 people of Chinese descent, most of them Indian citizens, rounded up without trial as suspected spies or sympathizers and placed in Rajasthan state's Deoli camp after India's one-month border war with China. Her family remained in detention until 1967. Over the decades, the Chinese-Indian community has paid a high price for India's humiliating defeat and the subsequent distrust between the two Asian giants.
