Better lay off the doughnuts: Your waistline is a more accurate indicator of your cardio-vascular health than your body-mass index, some doctors now say. The rule of thumb is that your waistline should measure no more than half your height.

I Love L.A.: A newly renovated billion-dollar terminal at Los Angeles International Airport is designed to be a microcosm of the City of Angels, including a lineup of duty-free Rodeo Drive-style shops.
