WHAT DOES it mean when you hear that a dear friend has had a heart attack and is in the hospital in critical condition? Just how bad is critical? You might call the hospital the next day and be told his condition is stable. Does that mean he is out of danger now?Perhaps you read about an accident on I-95 in which three local teen-agers are hurt. The paper says one of the passengers was hospitalized in critical condition. The next day you read that the teen's condition is guarded. Does that mean he is getting better or worse?

By his own calculations, David Rubenstein, the Baltimore-born businessman and philanthropist, has just a couple of short decades left to make his mark on the planet. "I'm 60 now," Rubenstein says." "I'm running out of time. The average white man my age can expect to live to age 81, and before I die, I'd like to make an impact on the world. I'd like to have been truly transformative in at least one area." The sense of urgency is striking, if somewhat puzzling. Rubenstein is the son of a postal carrier and homemaker who grew up in a blue-collar enclave in Northwest Baltimore.

A silvery confection of turrets and domes, the Ansonia Hotel reigned like a dowager empress over Manhattan's Upper West Side. The basement of the Ansonia, however, more closely resembled a steamy cross between Hades and an Esther Williams movie.These were the famous Continental Baths, the subterranean gay mecca where Bette Midler, Barry Manilow, Melissa Manchester and other performers got their start playing to howlingly appreciative homosexual audiences.The principal activity at "the Baths" had nothing to do with music -- or baths, for that matter.

The pharmaceutical industry and the National Institutes of Health spend billions of dollars annually on medical research techniques that have been rendered obsolete by technological advances. Adult stem cell research is key to our status as the world's leader in medical research. The continued use of animals to test the effectiveness of medications and health interventions for humans is akin to using smoke signals instead of e-mail as a method of communication. Animal testing has never really worked.

My 8-year-old daughter has been coughing up blood. Otherwise, she seems fine.How worried should I be about this?Coughing up blood (called hemoptysis by doctors) should always be taken seriously.It is an unusual symptom in childhood. When it does occur, it may be a sign of a lung disease that requires treatment.Before listing some of the most common causes of hemoptysis during childhood, we want to point out that it is not always easy to tell whether the blood is coming from the lungs or the stomach, but both are important.

SHE WAS a petite reporter with blond hair, seemingly perfect skin and tan, and toned legs that caught the players' eyes as she wandered around the Philadelphia Phillies' locker room in a knee-length skirt. I remember wondering if she was sleeping with any of them. Then, I wondered if she thought the same thing about me. Truth is, it happens. But not like the media or Hollywood might lead you to believe. It doesn't make it any easier to establish credibility, though, when someone like Fox sports reporter Carolyn Hughes allegedly crosses the line.

Some of the images of Baltimore Detective Troy L. Chesley Sr. that flashed on screens above the pulpit made people laugh. In one, he is bare-chested, belly out and wearing white swim trunks. Another shows him as a boy, with a silly grin and eyes as big as grapes. Others shown at his funeral yesterday revealed his serious side. Posing for a portrait as a young police officer, he looked straight into the camera with a stony expression. Later, he stood with chin up, leaning against a patrol car with other members of the Western District.

Betty Fleming of Bel Air asked for help in finding a recipe for candied sweet potatoes that have a thick syrup. She said no matter which recipe she had tried, the syrup was not thick enough. Roy Roche of Salem, Ore., wrote: "I found [this recipe] at allrecipes.com. However, I made the following alterations: I used 1 cup butter instead of 1 1/4 cups margarine. I peeled and cut the sweet potatoes prior to boiling instead of boiling the potatoes with the peels on. Instead of mashing half of the potatoes with the sauce, we left all of them in chunks."

NEW YORK -- Don't hate fashion designer Matt Nye because he's beautiful, or because he's the companion of media maverick Jann Wenner, or because he's traveled through Europe in five-star style with former boss Ralph Lauren. "Yes, good looks, youth, a level of notoriety, can open doors. For whatever reason people may be curious about me," says Nye, 34, while lounging in his Upper West Side studio. "What you choose to do with those opportunities once they're created is up to you. In the end, it's your work that's going to speak louder than who you're with or what you look like."

When "XXL" revealed the cover of its March "Freshman Class" issue - the hip-hop magazine's annual anointment of rising rappers most poised for major success - there was a fresh-faced, parka-wearing kid in the bottom-right corner, throwing a peace sign as a couple of gold chains hung from his neck. It was Sir Robert Bryson Hall II, better known as Logic, a 23-year-old rapper born and raised in Gaithersburg. Less than a month after the "XXL" cover was announced, Logic, who headlines the Fillmore Silver Spring on Sunday, signed to Def Jam Recordings, a label that has been synonymous with hip-hop prestige since producer Rick Rubin founded it in 1983.
