It is a retail confrontation: McDonald's versus Starbucks, a real-life struggle pitting a fierce fast-food chain with 30,000-plus stores against a fierce gourmet coffee chain of more than 14,000 outlets. The world is their playing field. Some contend these two companies aren't direct competitors. But as they seek to increase profitability and expand worldwide, it is inevitable offerings and style will morph a bit. There are only so many ways to drink and eat quickly, short of intravenous feeding.

''Slacker'' is a cult film. It was meant to play special theaters and in this instance, it is. It is showing at the Charles.The film, written, produced and directed by Richard Linklater, is a "chain" comedy in which the cameras introduce us to one character, who, in turn, meets another, who, in turn, becomes the focal character.For a time, the film just bores, then as we get used to the format, it begins to entertain. This enchantment lasts for a time, then the movie begins to bore again, primarily because the characters are boring.

Among them are rabbits, goldfish, an assortment of cats (and, we're happy to say, no more kittens), toads and a hermit crab. Only the crab was allowed in the house -- until last week.Now, I like cuddly critters, small, warm, furry animals that play. This does not describe reptiles. It especially does not describe snakes.

A movie date, it turns out, can be more than a picture show. A psychologist at the University of Michigan has found that certain movies can crank up our hormone levels and perhaps alter our behavior. A romantic flick such as The Bridges of Madison County can increase our biochemical readiness to cuddle. But a violent The Godfather II can fire up a guy's testosterone, unleashing his assertive instincts and his libido. "Movies, like good books, arouse our emotions," said Oliver C. Schultheiss, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor.

Along with the predictable driving rain, pounding surf and toppling trees, Hurricane Isabel brought with it a sense of disbelief, helplessness and even absurdity. There was plenty of headache and heartache. Baltimore bus riders stood stranded in the rain. Cheese and pate rotted in a flooded Annapolis market, whose uninsured owner worried about going belly up. And a mother with a toddler at Johns Hopkins Hospital endured a lonely wait in a darkened downtown hotel room. But Isabel also left behind an assortment of unforgettable oddities.

Jim Arnett typically spends his days working on designs for military radar systems, aircraft navigation equipment, precision weapons and other Defense Department electronics. But the electrical engineer with Northrop Grumman came to Friendship Valley Elementary School on a far different mission: Helping fourth-graders design and build towers from marshmallows and uncooked spaghetti. In 50-minute intervals, children at the Westminster-area elementary school were transformed Friday from quiet pupils, sitting attentively at their desks, into a giggling mass of sticky-fingered inventors running around the classroom with fists full of pasta.

TOKYO -- "Excuse me," says Kumihiro Yashiro competing with the roar of an airplane close overhead as he pulls a portable phone from his belt. "I'm working."He's also vacationing in the currently booming Japanese style of a semi-urban camping. A prolonged recession has prompted many Japanese to rethink holidays. For those who can't afford to take advantage of the high yen by going abroad, a new word has been coined to describe what's desired: ankintan, from the Chinese characters for cheap, close and brief.

What kind of wacko comes to Baltimore to attend a conference on Jack the Ripper? Well, there's the retired, skull-collecting local judge who became fascinated as a child with true crime stories, presided over more than 200 homicide cases - "but most of them were dull" - and still maintains a crime library in her home and membership in the Society of Connoisseurs in Murder. There's the Liverpool-born, Baltimore-based writer and historian who, in addition to his day job - as a medical editor for the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists - co-wrote a fanciful musical based on Jack the Ripper's murder and mutilation of at least five prostitutes in Victorian England.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Along with trying to build on his 10-win season and perhaps make a push for the Opening Day start, pitcher Jason Johnson has accepted the added responsibility of being the Orioles' player representative during a potentially turbulent year. Johnson has replaced Sidney Ponson, who didn't want to continue in that capacity. Ponson was filling in for Mike Mussina after the right-hander vacated the job by signing with the New York Yankees after the 2000 season. With Ponson on vacation, Johnson said he was contacted by Phil Bradley of the Major League Baseball Players Association and agreed to attend the December union meetings in Dallas.
