                       PORTION DISTORTION

               http://hin.nhlbi.nih.gov/portion/

  How do the portions served in today's fast food restaurants
  compare to those available 20 years ago? Take the "Portion
  Distortion" quizzes to learn exactly how much portions have
  "super sized," as well as the amount of physical activity
  required to burn off the extra calories provided by today's
  portions. Also, download "Portion Distortion" slides as
  PowerPoint, PDF, or text, and read about the differences
  between portions and servings. This site is part of the
  National Institutes of Health's Obesity Education Initiative.

  In addition, the NIH offers a Body Mass Index (BMI) Calculator:

                            SUDOKU

                   http://www.sudoku.com/

  Different from a magic square, this puzzle created by
  Pappocom, aka Wayne Gould, requires no arithmetic, only
  reasoning and logic to deduce which digit to put where. The
  goal is to fill in the 9x9 grid so that every row, every
  column, and each of the nine 3x3 boxes contains the digits 1
  through 9.
