President Clinton's welfare proposal has drawn fire from left and right alike. Liberals don't like many of its punitive aspects and especially resent the fact that the administration is funding much of the cost of the reforms by squeezing other social programs, shifting the burden of misery. Conservatives dismiss the plan by saying it fails to fulfill the president's promise "to end welfare as we know it."The program is complex and ambitious, and unless the economy grows briskly, enough private sector jobs for welfare recipients will simply not exist.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas met Monday with the teenager who allegedly was beaten by Israeli police last week, and Jewish leaders in Baltimore condemned the alleged abduction and killing of his cousin by several Israelis. In Israel, meanwhile, Hamas stepped up rocket fire at southern towns, and the government called up reserve troops in anticipation of a possible escalation of hostilities with the Islamist group that dominates the Gaza Strip. Relatives of 15-year-old Tariq Abu Khdeir, a Baltimore native who is visiting family in Israel with his parents and two younger sisters, say he was watching a protest leading up to the funeral of his cousin in East Jerusalem last Thursday when he was detained by Israeli police.

Q: I suffer from severe headaches. I went to the eye doctor and he gave me some glasses but I still get the headaches. What could be causing them?A: Without knowing more about you and the kind of headaches that you're having, it's hard for us to give you a lot of information about what could be causing them. However, we do wish to point out that headaches are extremely common among teen-agers. In one study done in Maryland, approximately 65 percent of teen-agers indicated they had experienced a headache in the past four weeks.

"You can get killed just for living in your American skin. " -- Bruce Springsteen On Aug. 7, 1930, two young black men were lynched in Marion, Ind. A photographer named Lawrence Beitler had a studio across the street from the lynching tree. He came out and snapped what became an iconic photo, which he made into a postcard and sold. It shows Thomas Shipp and Abram Smith hanging dead and their executioners, faces clearly visible, milling about as if at a picnic. Though authorities possessed this damning photographic evidence, they never arrested anyone for the crime.

ALLENTOWN, Pa. -- Agere Systems unveiled a device this week that will allow cell phone users to carry and store larger amounts of digital songs, messages, video games and contact information anywhere they go. The device, a portable hard-disk drive with processing capability, performs many of the same functions as an iPod music player or a personal digital assistant. However, it doesn't depend on a computer and doesn't have a screen or a keyboard. Users can load content onto their phones and transfer it for storage to the BluOnyx Mobile Content Server, as wide as a credit card and about as thick as a cell phone.

An Ellicott City teen-ager who spent several months researching the best way to kill before spiking his best friend's soda with cyanide was convicted yesterday of first-degree murder. The Howard County jury deliberated for less than three hours before returning the guilty verdict. Jurors apparently rejected a defense argument that Ryan T. Furlough, 19, was so depressed and so heavily medicated that he could not have been thinking rationally when he slipped cyanide into a soda can last year and offered it to 17-year-old Benjamin Vassiliev.

The photo shows a teen-ager with his arms triumphantly stretched skyward. For Levi Peresta - who had been in trouble with drugs only months before shooting this self-portrait in February - the stance is revealing. He has stayed clear of drugs all year, is on track to graduate with his class next year from Southern High School in Harwood and plans to reach for college and a future in art. "I'm standing on top of the hill, and that kind of symbolizes being on top of whatever I do," the Churchton 16-year-old said Wednesday as he helped mount a black-and-white photo exhibit at the Anne Arundel County Court House.

Washington. -- I don't get infuriated often, or about many things, but my blood was boiling last weekend when I first read figures about rising teen-age unemployment.And then I read about our soaring prison population.You probably read or heard that in April the nation's unemployment rate held steady at 7 per cent. But did the media, or any of our politicians, tell you that unemployment for teen-agers rose to 17 per cent for whites and an outrageous 46.8 per cent for blacks?It bodes ill for this society when one white teen-ager out of six can't find a job; but calamities await all of us when one black youngster out of two can't find work, even though they need and seek it desperately.

Lawyers for an Ellicott City teen-ager accused of fatally poisoning a classmate last year by spiking his soda with cyanide have decided not to pursue an insanity defense. Instead, they hope that a Howard County judge will allow them to present evidence at trial that Ryan T. Furlough, 19, was so emotionally and mentally impaired at the time that he could not have willfully planned Benjamin Edward Vassiliev's death - and therefore could not possibly be guilty of first-degree, premeditated murder, according to information presented in new court filings and during a court hearing yesterday.

The 15-year-old girl who told investigators she was raped last week by three classmates in the bathroom of an Ellicott City high school has recanted her story to police, leading the Howard County state's attorney's office to announce last night that all charges against the three accused teen-agers would be dropped. The decision came a day after prosecutors, noting an "abundance of new information" in the case, agreed to support the bid of the three teen-agers, who had been charged with rape, for release on $20,000 unsecured bond.
