Kitten biting now, help!

Kitten filter: My wife's new kitten (he is 4 months old now) seems to be going through a biting phase. He especially likes biting hands and arms. We try to spray him with water and say "no biting." Will this be enough to train him not to bite, or is there something else we should be doing? Thank you!

How do I loose weight and gain muscle at the same time?

I wake up in the morning at 6am and walk 2km (1.2 miles) to the gym and back five days a week. My workouts last 45 minutes and are aimed at sculpting, working on a body part per day (back, shoulders, chest, arms and legs). I weigh 100kg (220 pounds) and am 180cm (5.9 feet). I want to weigh 85kg (185 pounds). What and when should I eat to loose weight and gain maximum muscle mass? and how long should it take for me to loose this weight? I work from home as a software developer and sit on my ass all day so I don't get any more exercise than that...

House training a dog who dwells in a condo with shared corridors and an elevator...

How can I house break a 6-year-old rescued scent hound when I live in a condo with shared corridors and an elevator? After searching many rescue listings, I have found a cute dog that seems to be a good fit for me according to the adoption counselors. I plan to meet the dog this weekend and take her home early next week if all works as planned. The rescue agency told me that she doesn't like pooping on leash, but will urinate on leash. They think she'll be OK with the shared corridors and elevator. I'm mainly worried that she will make a mess in these common areas as I don't want to upset my neighbors. It is my understand that she will poop in the house at times because she doesn't understanding the concept of pooping on leash. [more inside]

If you're so smart, why ain't you fat?

My dog Duffy is very smart and even though he's pretty old he learns new things fast, so I am doing an experiment with him and I am finding his failure to pick up the trigger puzzling. He discerns the most subtle cues from others when he's trying to decide what to do next, so I wonder how this isn't working. [more inside]

Adult beginner soccer training/camps in the U.S.?

Adult beginner soccer training/camps in the U.S.? I'm a relatively new player (started a couple of years ago). I play on a couple of teams, but as fun as games are they're just not the best way to develop basic skills; I really need a structured practice environment and feedback. I'm considering going to this camp, but I'm wondering if there's anything similar in the U.S. (Google turns up a bunch of camps for kids, but very few for adults, and even fewer for adult beginners.) West Coast would be best, but I'm willing (obviously) to travel further afield if need be.
