WASHINGTON - During Bernadine Healy's tumultuous final six months as president of the American Red Cross, the nonprofit agency awarded her $1.9 million. As a result, Healy's replacement, former Rear Adm. Marsha Evans, and the agency's board have launched separate reviews of the way the Red Cross compensates its senior employees. Healy wept in public frustration when she was forced out of the top American Red Cross job in the tense and confusing aftermath of the Sept. 11 terror attacks in the fall of 2001.

My oven has convection-roast and convection-bake settings. I understand convection is a heat-circulating fan, but the roast vs. baking part confuses me. What difference does it make to the oven if I leave the lid off a meat pan? In food language, roast and bake really aren't different. Both are done in an open pan, usually in an oven. We refer to cooking meats and vegetables in an open pan as roasting, while cakes, cookies and pies are baked. But convection, which uses fans to circulate air, is a different beast.

I can't help the way I look."Novotna, seeming finally to believe that her game is ideallsuited to grass, has a chance to prove it today in the women's semifinals against Martina Navratilova.

You can't take your eyes off Shohreh Aghdashloo. It's not because she's strikingly beautiful. She is. Or because her voice is deeper than Barry White's. It seems like it. Or because she's a good actress. She was nominated for an Oscar for House of Sand and Fog. No, it's because the 52-year-old Iranian actress is playing a chillingly sinister Middle Eastern terrorist on 24. As the wickedly cunning Dina Araz, Aghdashloo is stealing every scene she's in with her icy looks, throaty voice and scary ability to poison her son's girlfriend with ease.

It shut down. Totally. Well, almost.In 1942, only four months after the start of the war, the course was closed for the duration.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- When California voters passed Proposition 215 in November, supporters proudly declared the state to be in the vanguard of the medical marijuana movement.In fact, at least one other state got a head start - by nearly two decades.Without a whiff of controversy, the Virginia Legislature passed a law in 1979 allowing doctors to prescribe marijuana to treat glaucoma and to help cancer patients cope with the side effects of chemotherapy.The law was passed as a small part of a sweeping overhaul of the state's drug laws.

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. His legacy is as enduring as it is multi-faceted. 1. Sound When America first met Jackson, he was a lovable, pint-sized pre-teen with a puffy Afro and an electric voice.

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.

I have a 6-year-old son in good health who has an interesting problem.For the last year or so, one of his outer ears sometimes becomes very hot to the touch and bright red. This can happen when he is resting, bouncing around or even eating. It doesn't seem to have any pattern, except that it is only one ear at a time. He doesn't have a cold or an ear infection when this happens.Someone said it is blood pressure, so I am concerned. I have asked doctors in the past who brush it off. Please let me know what you think.

The man who police say was behind the wheel of a car that struck and killed the father of a Baltimore officer escaped conviction on federal gun charges last year — a rare exception, given federal prosecutors' reputation for closing cases. Umar Burley, 39, the suspected driver , and passenger Brent Matthews, 36, were ordered held without bond Thursday on drug charges in connection with the crash. City prosecutors say both men, accused of fleeing a drug arrest, could face manslaughter charges once the investigation is complete.

It reminded him of his native North Carolina, but most of all it gave him a place to disappear.
