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

EDITED BY LOREN G. EDELSTEIN


SAY IT WITHOUT FLOWERS
Centerpieces need not be of the floral sort. Planners are finally learning that a fish in a bowl or an elegant piece of pottery can say more than the prettiest pansy.

TOTAL RECALL
Feeling forgetful? Organizations are hiring memory trainers to help employees remember everything from the new product line to clients' names.

HEALTH BEAT: ARE LONG FLIGHTS KILLING YOU?
The answer is "maybe." Travelers who sit for more than five hours in planes, cars or trains are at "relatively high risk" of getting blood clots in their legs.

FOR THE BOOKSHELF
We review When Money Isn't Enough: How Women are Finding the Soul of Success by Connie Glaser and Barbara Smalley, and Couples & Money by Victoria F. Collins with Suzanne B. Brown.

FAST FORWARD
Assuming life won't end due to Y2K compliance problems, The Year 2000 Personal Computer Fix-It Guide helps average folks fix (or prevent) glitches.

WEB SITES WE LIKE
We learn about How Stuff Works, take a Crash Course in Wills and Trusts, and find the right words at Gentlehints.com.

ETC.
American Express customers get a floor all their own...Will Congress make airlines pay flyers for delays?
