Vitamin D may be helpful in protecting highly active pre-teen and teen girls, such as those who play sports, from stress fractures, researchers reported Monday. The study was surprising because calcium has long been considered the nutrient most vital to bone health in children. But, in developing children, vitamin D intake may matter more. Researchers analyzed data from 6,721 girls ages 9 to 15 at the start of the study. The girls' intake of calcium, vitamin D and dairy products was recorded along with stress fractures, which are common sports-related injuries.

Worried about making a great impression on the first day of school? Even Miss Teen USA, Logan West, admits to feeling nervous on first days. "I was like petrified," the 18-year-old says.

Just last weekend Miley Cyrus chopped her long locks into an edgy pixie crop and tweeted it for all the world to see. "Miley's cut is a bold move, and I have to say it's flattering on her," says Yesenia Almonte, beauty director for Seventeen magazine.

Scientists in Scotland think they have the answer: Boys simply grow too fast for their brains. The brain can't keep up when boys in their early teens go through growth spurts that can add 3 to 4 inches to their stature in a matter of months, according to a report in The Times of London.

The driver was 10 years old, police said According to Philadelphia police, the boy saw the van, which was being used to unload furniture, with the keys hanging from the rear door.
