By Chuck Mikolajczak NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stocks were little changed on Wednesday, as equities recouped much of their earlier declines amid signs of progress in diplomatic attempts to ease tensions surrounding Ukraine. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will meet with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov in London on Friday ahead of a referendum Sunday on whether the Ukraine's Crimean peninsula will join Russia or go independent. "People are just kind of reassessing, they are looking at that headline and thinking maybe it is not going to turn out to be a disaster in Russia and Ukraine," said Ken Polcari, Director of the NYSE floor division at O'Neil Securities in New York.
By Alice Popovici MARRIOTTSVILLE, Maryland (Reuters) - The gunman who killed two store employees at a Maryland mall this year did not know his victims and may have been obsessed by the 1999 Columbine High School massacre, police said on Wednesday. The shooter, Darion Marcus Aguilar, 19, opened fire at a Columbia, Maryland, mall on January 25 while it was crowded with Saturday shoppers. Investigators have been unable to find any connection between Aguilar and the employees he gunned down at a Zumiez Inc skateboard store, the Howard County Police Department's investigation found. Aguilar worked at a doughnut shop.
By Ronnie Cohen NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - The more television children watch, the less total sleep they're getting, according to a small Spanish study. Researchers found that a nine-year-old who watched five hours of television a day, for example, slept an average one hour less a night than a nine-year-old who watched television for less than an hour and a half a day, lead author Marcella Marinelli, from the Center for Research in Environmental Epidemiology in Barcelona, told Reuters Health. The study team followed some 1,700 children for up to three years and found those who increased their TV time got even less sleep as they grew up. "This study really demonstrated that kids who watch a lot of television and continued to do so continued to have a trajectory of less sleep than they should have," said Christina Calamaro, from the Nemours Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Delaware, who was not involved in the research.

By Kathleen Raven NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Smokers who kick the habit appear to benefit from an improved mood, according to a new review of past studies. On average, quitting smoking was associated with improvements in mental health similar to taking an antidepressant drug, a team of UK researchers found. "The main message is that when people stop smoking, they feel better than they did when they were smoking," Dr. Paul Aveyard, one of the review's authors, told Reuters Health. "People who quit smoking may feel grumpy, irritable and bad - those feelings are similar to feelings of stress and people conflate the two," Aveyard, from the University of Oxford, said.
