To watch Vevie Reynolds work is to watch a pro in action. On long Donna Karan hose-clad legs, she is shuttling among three dressing rooms, assisting a mother-to-be in need of chic maternity clothes, a CEO's wife in for a refitting of an opalescent red designer gown, and a woman buying clothes for a trip to Spain. While hustling at a breakneck pace, there is not a bead of sweat on her brow or a hair out of place.

February 9, 1986 | RAY CONSIDINE, Ray Considine, a management sales consultant and author of "The Great Brain Robbery" (1979), has a tradition of sending out a New Year's card that's based on an idea he got from the book "Quintessence." The following is from this year's version.
"Quintessence": the quality of "having it." (The book's) pages are full of striking, giant photo-graphics, all classic designs of things that we instinctively recognize "have it." The Oreo cookie. Your everyday black Ace pocket comb. Keds (remember them?). Zippo lighter. The VW Beetle. A peanut butter and jelly sandwich. An Eagle pencil. The Campbell's soup can. A plain brown bag. And there is mention of people with Quintessence. Fred Astaire. Cary Grant. Bogart. Bergman.

Answer: Establish yourself as a fashion expert by starting a blog and setting up social networking sites. "Start writing articles so you become known among the fashionistas [whom] you need to spread the word about your interesting hats," said Don Baarns of Baarns Consulting Group in Sylmar.

"I'd like to take a little bit of responsibility for this nightmare." The source of that generous offer is far from evil. If anything, Nathan Gunn is the dimpled picture of Midwestern nice guy-ness -- think a younger, darker Russell Crowe without the edge. That's why he's volunteering to take the fall for men like himself -- opera's tantalizing new breed of baritone known as "barihunks." They're known for their great bods and for breathless blogs written by devoted admirers.

Smokestacks and factory compounds stretch from downtown to the smoggy horizon. Canals fouled by sewage encircle the city. Shenyang strains to cope with overcrowding, pollution and water shortages from rapid growth. And it's getting bigger. Twenty years ago, this industrial city had a population of less than 3 million. Today, it's 6.8 million. By 2025, Shenyang's residents are expected to number more than 10 million. It's a pattern being repeated throughout Asia.

THE DAY PETER METcalf decided to take on the governor of Utah, the lieutenant governor of Utah and, well, most of the population of Utah, he looked at his hands -- hard and scarred from years of climbing, the right index finger missing above the joint -- and wondered if they were up to poking powerful people in the chest as he plunged into the contentious argument over the future of the state's wild lands.

Casey KirkHart was in many ways a typical medical student, which is to say he was usually hungry, always pressed for time and keenly aware of his mounting loan debt. Unlike many of his peers, however, he routinely passed up the lunch that accompanied a weekly lecture, even though the food was everything a student could want: tasty, convenient and, thanks to the pharmaceutical company that catered it, free.

A year ago, a California Angels home run--by sending the team into post-season play--could have cost Dan Greene a half-million dollars. And a hailstorm would have put him deeply in debt. But the Angels lost and it only drizzled, so Greene's Home Restoration and Remodeling Show was able to go on as planned at Anaheim Stadium. The crowds arrived, and Greene's investment paid off.
