Self Help


Begin with your big rear end in mind: Setting a goal to lose weight and become more fit is one thing; sticking to the goal is another. That’s where studying the habits of highly fit people comes in (Page B1).

Find a highly fit person who makes a habit of drinking beer while sitting on a couch in front of a Mariners game on TV, and you can count The Buzz in.

Two peas in a pod: A new scientific study suggests that our DNA code tends to be more similar to the code of our friends than the code of strangers (Page A2).

In fact, researchers say our friends are “related” as fourth cousins. So in the interest of genetic diversity, you really should keep things platonic with your longtime best buddy.

Don’t know much about history: On this day in 1799, the Rosetta Stone was discovered in Egypt by French soldiers (Today in History, Page A2).

The stone proved instrumental in deciphering ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs; unfortunately, it isn’t much help in decoding the iTunes store’s terms of use.
