This winter, consider a culinary and cosmopolitan weekend in chilly Montreal — IT'S FRIGID OUTSIDE, even in the sun, and we're shivering as we wait patiently in line . . . for bagels. But not just any bagels. Montreal bagels.

Are solar panels worth it? — You've seen them on your neighbors' roofs. Solar panels are popping up everywhere now, and so are the ads for them. It's no wonder - harnessing energy from the sun appeals to everyone from carbon-cutting environmentalists to grid-wary doomsday preppers. But the real growth has been driven by average homeowners with a much simpler motive: saving money.

Home improvement meet self-improvement — When you picture a pack of fraternity brothers traveling around the country doing construction work, you're probably tempted to imagine the Hollywood version - a beer- and testosterone-fueled road trip, "Animal House" with power tools. With Pi Kappa Phi, it's a tale of dedication, inspiration, and service.
