Short Cuts:ETC.

Fewer than 8 percent of visitors at a trade show booth are greeted with a handshake, revealed a study by The Incomm Center for Trade Show Research in Chicago. Another study by the group demonstrated the value of a handshake: More than half of strangers lied when asked if they had found a quarter left at a public phone. When first greeted with a handshake, however, only 24 percent lied, reported Trade Show News Network (www.tsnn.com).

Dinner's in the bag... Nearly half of Americans are cooking fewer meals at home than they were two years ago, according to a recent survey by the National Restaurant Association. More than 34 percent admit they eat more takeout food.
