The Rev. Jamal-Harrison Bryant strolls onto stage, his dapper image projected on four giant screens, hundreds of faces before him. Swirls of light dance in the background as the 35-year-old takes to the podium, his baritone voice booming through JumboTron speakers and echoing throughout the former roller skating rink. The audience roars. It's an entrance worthy of a rock star. Only this is Tuesday night Bible Study at the Empowerment Temple in Northwest Baltimore. And the man in the paisley shirt and shiny gray suit with the smooth voice of an R&B singer - the pastor.

We would have remembered him if it was just the songwriting or just the dancing or just the eyebrow-raising fashion. But Michael Jackson dominated each of those artistic avenues - and so many others. You see his influence in every Justin Timberlake who sweats to perfect a signature move. Every movie-esque flourish in a video. Every African-American artist who sits atop the pop charts.

Even if life is cheap in the City of God housing project outside Rio de Janeiro, it should exact more empathy than it does in City of God, a razzle-dazzle lower-depths melodrama. The movie's skill is stupefying in more ways than one. As the breakthrough feature from TV-commercial whiz Fernando Meirelles, it's an amazingly ambitious and assured urban spectacle, skipping through decades of gangland mayhem and related catastrophes without missing a narrative beat. As a statement on the debasement of everyday existence, starting with childhood and increasing with each generation, this movie drains you of feeling and puts nothing in its place.

Felicia "Snoop" Pearson has spent much of the past two decades drawn to the gritty glamour of life on the streets, and nearly as much time and energy struggling to break free. Critics will see the arrest of the 30-year-old Baltimore actress on Thursday on drug charges as evidence that she's a career criminal — an image that only was heightened by her portrayal of a cold-blooded assassin on HBO's "The Wire. " But Pearson's friends, and there are many, are profoundly saddened by her latest run-in with police.

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.
