Just how does one dress for a fundraising party that has "The Seven Deadly Sins" as its title and theme? If it's for the Maryland Art Place, a little personal creativity comes in handy. For MAP board chair Suzi Cordish, that meant welcoming the evening's guests in a chic cocktail pajama pants outfit. "I'm epitomizing Sloth," she said, looking anything but. "Out of desperation, I wanted to be a little greedy, so [I went] into the Monopoly game," said Ray Mitchener, the owner of Ruth Shaw, explaining why his suit lapels were covered with play money.

A 19-year-old honors student convicted of strangling his girlfriend and burying her in a shallow grave because she broke up with him was sentenced in Baltimore Circuit Court yesterday to spend the rest of his life behind bars. Adnan Masud Syed maintained his innocence at his sentencing on first-degree murder and kidnapping convictions, even as his attorney asked Judge Wanda K. Heard for mercy when punishing Syed because the killing was "a crime of passion." "He made a bad decision," Syed's attorney, Charles H. Dorsey III, told Heard.

What is the difference between a winter storm watch, a warning and an advisory? In these parts, an advisory is issued by the National Weather Service when a disruptive coating of 2 to 4 inches of snow - alone or with sleet and freezing rain - is anticipated. A watch means the possibility of hazardous conditions looms within 48 hours. A warning is for a mix-and-match set of circumstances: more than 5 inches of snow or sleet; one-quarter inch of ice; enough accumulation to down power lines; damaging precipitation and high winds.

The body of a young woman found Tuesday buried in a shallow grave in Baltimore's Leakin Park was identified yesterday as an 18-year-old Woodlawn Senior High School student who disappeared nearly four weeks ago. Hae Min Lee was last seen Jan. 13 driving away from the Baltimore County school in a gray 1998 Nissan Sentra, on her way to get her 6-year-old niece and go to work at a LensCrafters store. "We thought she would come back," said her uncle Tae Soo Kim. Baltimore police said a man out walking found the grave, which was about 100 feet off Franklintown Road in the secluded West Baltimore park -- about a mile from Woodlawn High.

CAMBRIDGE, England - They arrived armed with stories about a man and theories about the universe. They talked of a genius and friendship. And they celebrated a 60th birthday that some called "a miracle." During a work week of parties and lectures, Cambridge University physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking was lauded by colleagues as an original thinker, a cherished confidant and a gritty survivor who - despite all predictions to the contrary - has lived for decades after receiving a diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

Casey Towers, then 20 and the mother of two babies, spent January and February of 2006 at University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore. She prayed for a gift that was a matter of life and death: a healthy heart to replace her broken one. She got it within weeks, on her daughter's first birthday. She knew it had belonged to a person from Georgia who was even younger than her. She later learned it came from Luke Abbate, a top athlete at the Carey Harrison High School in Marietta — and the younger brother of Jon Abbate, a star linebacker for Wake Forest University.

Those who have a habit of biting their lips may find that a small bluish bump has developed inside their mouth. It might disappear on its own or it might linger.

Why does the water heater in my new house have another small tank hanging off the side of the pipe above it? That is an expansion tank installed on the water supply pipe to the water heater. Its purpose is to deal with thermal expansion of water as it heats up in the water heater - to prevent water pressure from getting too high. If water pressure gets high enough it can damage valves in plumbing fixtures, joints in supply pipes and even the water heater. Thermal expansion always occurs in water heaters.

Winston Cup racing is a difficult life for families. A minimum of four days a week is spent on the road, at race tracks spread across the country. On the other three days, there are often appearances for sponsors and other commitments. When is there time for family? Every team can tell a tale of birthdays and anniversaries missed. Of children's ballgames and dance recitals unattended. Of separations and divorce. But seldom do those woes reach that point among the sport's stars, the drivers.

M. Cristina Gutierrez, one of the Baltimore area's most ferocious criminal defense lawyers, has agreed to her own disbarment, marking the end of an accomplished law career.
