Four of the five best-selling cars

priced under $15,000 are adequate-- but not great-- at protecting passengers in a crash. The lone safety straggler, based on both government and insurance industry tests, is Chevrolet Cavalier. Cavalier lags the field because of its weak one-star rating (lowest on a scale of one to five) in the government's side-impact test and because of its "poor" rating in the front-end offset crash conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Top-Rated Educational Toys

The best and brightest of the people who create and evaluate educational toys know the truth: A common set of wooden building blocks teaches and charms, as always. But there are new kids around those blocks. The market is delivering toys that can simulate a lifesaving surgery, monitor the progress of a caterpillar's journey to flight, or teach about dinosaurs.

Six Ways to Say Welcome

The warm welcome at the home of Stephanie Cohen, a designer and teacher in Collegeville, Pennsylvania, starts with the garden out front. Can you borrow her ideas for your own yard? Yep. Here are six, starting with "Curve the Walk." See how the path to the front door (above) makes a long turn to prolong the show of color? The white flowers are Shasta daisies, the purple are Shortwood phlox, and the tall perennial on the right is Joe-Pye weed.

Home offices

When Joe Ruggiero's creative muse speaks, he listens. This time its message was clear: Make a U-turn, leave the Los Angeles traffic and hubbub of a downtown office behind, and head home to work and inspiration. Since the designer/TV host considers his home an ever-changing interior design lab anyway, the challenge of putting style and efficiency into a home office was appealing.

Intelligent kitchen

Futurists 50 years ago may have assumed that robots would render the family cook useless by now. Never again would mom, dad, or even the kids need to bake another batch of chocolate-chip cookies. But 2000 isn't quite like that. Sure, ready-made food has cut out some cooking duties, but the kitchen is busier than ever-- and so are today's families. That's why we've designed the Intelligent Kitchen. Its state-of-the-art appliances, convenient storage systems, and welcoming, multipurpose floor plan save time without alienating the family. No cold robots here. After all, they'd probably just burn the cookies.

You can't wish away Osteoporosis

It begins with tiny fractures in the bones of your spine. Instead of healing, the bones compress and flatten. As the disease progresses, the upper spine is pushed outward and the shoulders round. The rib cage travels downward and settles on top of the hip bones. Organs crowd together, and the abdomen begins to protrude. Your skeleton can become so fragile that just bumping into something or even a cough can damage a bone.
