Can you apply stucco to the exterior of a brick home? What tips can you share to ensure the stucco does not peel off? Yes, you can. Not only do you need the right tools and equipment, but you also need good hand-eye coordination to do the job well. These challenges are not insurmountable. You can rent the needed scaffolding and power mixer that will be required for the job. I recommend that you hone your technique on a practice wall before trying to stucco your house. First, inspect your existing brick.

Lauren Simenauer has spent many late nights and weekends on college applications. The Centennial High senior is completing 12 of them with the help of "lots of coffee." She is one of an increasing number of Howard County students applying to a double-digit number of colleges. "In my Advanced Placement classes, most people are applying to 10 or 15 schools," said Simenauer, adding that in other circles "people think I'm crazy." In part, technology allows students to do this. "Fourteen out of the 15 [schools I'm applying to]

The hours are long, the pay is nonexistent and the requirements just to be considered are stiff. On top of that, the agency you'd oversee is facing a fiscal crisis including a $58 million deficit, and your potential co-workers have become the target of scorn and recrimination across Maryland. Not exactly a dream job. So perhaps it's not surprising that the application deadline for this position - member of the Baltimore City school board - has been extended twice. The Maryland State Board of Education, which is advertising three board openings coming up in June, first pushed the original deadline of March 15 to Wednesday.

Do the homework: Many job seekers apparently don't bother to learn much about the companies or industries they're applying to. Sixty percent of executives surveyed by Accountemps, an employment company, reported that applicants rarely indicate in their cover letters that they know anything about the company or industry. And 38 percent of the executives reported that even at the interview stage, job candidates rarely display such knowledge. Max Messmer, the chairman of Accountemps, suggests job seekers do some homework before they start applying for a job.Pub Date: 10/12/97

In her shop in Montgomery Village, Savita Jain practices the ancient form of henna art - applying a temporary stain made from a ground-up plant in intricate patterns on her client's bodies. Jain says she has equal numbers of Indian and American clients. The Indian clients prefer to have their hands and feet adorned, while Americans are apt to ask for designs on all parts of their bodies. The stain lasts about three weeks.

THE TROUBLE with ad-libbing your way through a home repair usually comes later, when you learn about the correct way, the way it should have been done.Take, for example, my attempts at painting the basement door. Over the past 20 years I have slapped a coat of paint on this door maybe three or four times. Each time I did it, I felt a sense of accomplishment. But it turns out, each time I did it, I was using improper painting techniques.I was a free-range painter. I would simply hold the open door by putting a wedge between the bottom edge and the floor.

If your grades and SAT scores are less than stellar, you still have a shot at getting into Goucher College with a two-minute video. Starting with applicants for next year's class, Goucher announced Thursday that it will give students the option of submitting a video they record in lieu of transcripts or college admission exams. Officials say the move is designed to help those who might have difficulty navigating the complexity of the college application process. Though colleges across the country have allowed students to submit videos as a supplement to their application, Goucher officials believe the college will be the first to judge applicants primarily on the video.

I never liked it when George W. Bush used the term "evildoers" to describe al-Qaeda and other terrorists. A lot of other people objected as well, but for different reasons. I didn't like the term because it always sounded to me like he was saying "evil Dewar's," as in the blended Scotch. (This always made some of Bush's statements chuckle-worthy -- "We will not rest until we find the evil Dewar's!") I prefer single malts, but "evil" always seemed unduly harsh. The more common objection to "evildoers" was that it was, variously, simplistic, Manichean, imperialistic, cartoonish, etc. "Perhaps without even realizing it," Peter Roff, then with UPI, wrote in October 2001, "the president is using language that recalls a simpler time when good and evil seemed more easy to identify -- a time when issues, television programs and movies were more black and white, not colored by subtle hues of meaning.

As bills go out with the first fees for customers who don't want smart meters, Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. is pressing to apply the charges to a much larger group - people the utility says have ignored repeated requests to switch out old meters located indoors or behind locked gates. About 350,000 customers with inaccessible meters - more than a quarter of BGE's territory - haven't scheduled appointments with contractors despite multiple attempts, the company said. That's preventing installation, but they aren't on the hook for the extra charge now levied on people who ask to opt out of a smart meter.

— Ravens running back Ray Rice rejected a plea offer Thursday that would spare him jail time on charges that he assaulted his then-fiancee, and instead asked the court to put him in a program under which he could eventually clear his record. With his status in the NFL still undetermined, Rice made his first court appearance since being charged by an Atlantic County grand jury with one count of third-degree aggravated assault. He is accused of knocking Janay Palmer unconscious during an altercation in the Revel Casino in February, an incident that authorities say was caught on video by a security camera.

A few months ago, you wrote about turmeric being used for boils and also being studied for treating arthritis and cancer. This bit of information has changed my life. I've suffered with psoriasis on nearly half of my body for 25 years. I've seen many physicians and tried every medication and ultraviolet treatment. The cost has been enormous, matched only by the disappointment with the failures. When I read that turmeric might have anti-inflammatory action, I wondered if it might help me. I immediately bought some and sprinkled a rounded teaspoonful on my cereal.

After we wrapped up my interview with Bruno Sammartino on Sunday, he wanted to demonstrate the front facelock on me so I could understand how effective it was. So I leaned over and the world's strongest 73-year-old locked me in the hold and squeezed, turning my head in an awkward position that was quite uncomfortable. Fortunately for me, Bruno knows his own strength. After releasing me, he said that if he were to yank upward when applying the hold, it "would break any man's neck." I wasn't going to argue with him.

The General Assembly is poised to approve legislation that would allow Sunday hunting on public and private land in three western Maryland counties. Under bills that have passed both the House and Senate, hunters in Garrett, Allegany and Washington counties would not be subject to the widespread ban on Sunday hunting. While Sunday hunting for deer was approved in some jurisdictions in 2003, hunting for most other game is banned that day. The new bill would make it legal to hunt all game species except waterfowl in those western Maryland counties during the existing hunting seasons.

Edgar Allan Poe was a pretty open-minded guy. "I do not believe that any thought, properly so called," he once said, "is out of the reach of language. " So this Baltimore favorite son presumably would have been cool with the "Homo Poe Show," which started as a single thought - Is there a way to see Poe through a gay lens? - and resulted in enough provocative language to launch an evening-length collection of four short theater works. It's the brainchild of Steven J. Satta, founding member and artistic director of Iron Crow Theatre Company, a Baltimore troupe that emphasizes works with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender perspectives.
