Angel investors: Alive and well and active

     Do you believe in angels? If you thought finance had nothing to do with angels, think again.

     These high-net-worth individuals, largely unfazed by the downturn in the housing market and signs of weakness in the U.S. economy, are still out in droves. Yet as their name implies, angels are not readily visible and have to be painstakingly wooed before they make a financial commitment.

     Once they latch onto something they believe in, however, they often work harder than George Bailey's Clarence to earn their wings.

     "It's a fine time to look for angel funding," says Jeffrey Sohl, director of the University of New Hampshire's Center for Venture Research, which is tracking increased angel interest in recession-proof industries like software, health-care services, medical technology, online social networks and alternative energy.

In fact, in a 2003 German study researchers estimated that drinking two additional icy quarts a day would help you burn about 100 extra calories -- or the equivalent of a pound of fat every five weeks -- with no other changes in exercise or diet.

So that's why we like sushi. By simultaneously eating "bad" high-glycemic foods (pasta, rice, etc.) and protein (fish, meat, etc.), you greatly lower the former's absorption rate -- and reduce their tendency to be stored in the body as fat.
