Mr. Nice Guy

He's not a dinner jacket: Though Iran's new president stayed on the good side of the nation's ruling clerics by ruling out halting its nuclear weapon program and engaging in direct talks with the United States, he nonetheless promised Monday to follow a "path of moderation"

To President Hasan Rowhani, "moderation" apparently means "I won't be an obnoxious creep like that Ahmadinejad."

Don't bother me, I'm eating: Many people who exercise regularly cling to a cherished belief: Daily workouts allow you to can eat anything you want. That, and nine other fitness myths, get a thorough debunking.

It's simple: If we eat more calories than we burn on a consistent basis, our bodies will accumulate these extra calories as fat. In other words, only marathon runners should dine at Carl's Jr.

Check's in the mail: For the first time since 2006, most U.S. homebuilders are optimistic about home sales, a key economic indicator shows. Steady hiring, low mortgage rates and increased demand have boosted builders' confidence about the market for newly built homes.

In fact, general contractors are feeling so upbeat, they might even pay their subs on time.
