May 1999 Short Cuts - Tips for Work, Home and Life

EDITED BY LOREN G. EDELSTEIN


GIVE A LITTLE SQUEEZE
Why are suited executives in the boardroom holding rubber duckies and caressing beanbag animals? Hand-held stress toys are the latest meeting-room craze. Here's why.

PLAYING DRESS-UP
Just as "the clothes make the man," costumes can make the party. But there's an easy alternative to asking guests to dress funny: Rent costumes for the catering staff.

HEALTH BEAT: TOOTH LOSS
Where you live and the level of education you completed are among factors that point to whether you'll be gumming your food after age 65.

FOR THE BOOKSHELF
We review Managing Multiple Bosses by Pat Nickerson and The Retirement Handbook by Carl W. Battle.

FAST FORWARD: EXPOCAD VR2
This program lets exhibitors choose booth spaces over the Internet and even link those spaces on the grid to their own Web pages.
