Tucked into the rolling hills of Hopkins, a suburb west of Minneapolis, the recently refurbished Oak Ridge Country Club looks much like a middle school: beige paneling, a limestone base, and energy-efficient windows. Along the main road to the club is a modest apartment complex with four signs advertising units for rent.

ST. PAUL, Minn. --The ladies competition at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships was billed as a "battle of the ages," but the so-called battle turned into a rout.

When it comes to colds, flu, stomach bugs, and ear infections, everyone has a theory. Some have been passed down through generations, or are based on outdated science. A few just seem like common sense. But whatever their origin, many just aren't true. The facts behind these myths:
So how has the Israeli stock market held up in all this mess? Not so bad actually. Was down 4 percent initially after the shooting started, but since has made up half of the drop. Since then it's been flat. War/terror as usual....
