It's Europe Day! (Yeah, we didn't know that either.) Welcome to your trends report for Friday, May 10. You're not alone if you were in the dark about the EU's annual holiday: Apparently, very few Europeans know that it exists. Nonetheless, between that, soccer championships and some market-related news articles, Europe managed to get some major attention on Twitter this morning. Also getting heavy traffic -- mostly on Google search -- was the NBA. This weekend's matchups include Heat-Bulls and Warriors-Spurs.

Well-aged music with rich color, a hint of tobacco and a strong finish was served up by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra to open its newly christened Summer Wine and Music Fest Wednesday night at the Meyerhoff. Because it was also Bastille Day, the tastings in the lobby were of French vintages; inside the hall, works by French composers prevailed. As in previous BSO summer festivals, a chamber-music program preceded the orchestral one, and, in a nicely symmetrical touch, the spirit of Francois Couperin put both portions in motion.

DIGNE-LES-BAINS, France - The signs on the autoroute announced it clearly: Driving into Digne-les-Bains was "impossible" without a pass. But on this Bastille Day, French cyclists were exempt from the rules of the road. David Moncoutie of the French team Cofidis went to the front early and fought off a series of attacks to finish an emotional first in the 116.2-mile 12th stage of the Tour de France yesterday. Sandy Casar of team Francaise des Jeux outsprinted Spain's Angel Vicioso for second.

SAINT-FLOUR, France - The racing yesterday belonged to the French, which seemed fair because it was Bastille Day, a national holiday. Richard Virenque, 34, a rider brought down by the Tour de France's worst doping scandal in 1998 but who rose again because of his fierce love of climbing the mountains, led much of the way to earn the first mountain-stage victory. And a young native, Thomas Voeckler, made a determined sprint at the end of the 147.27-mile leg, this year's longest, to hold on to the Tour's yellow jersey.

PARIS -- A young Frenchman with neo-Nazi connections fired at least one shot at President Jacques Chirac yesterday morning as the French leader was being driven in an open jeep down the Champs-Elysees before the start of the annual Bastille Day military parade, police said. Chirac was not hurt. The police said the man, Maxime Brunerie, 25, who was wrestled to the ground by spectators before he was arrested, admitted planning to assassinate Chirac and then commit suicide. Brunerie, a student and part-time chauffeur who lives in the Paris suburbs, was "known to belong to neo-Nazi and hooligan movements," including a far-right student group, the police said.

THIS WAS THE FIFTH year in which Dan and Donna Wecker had thrown a Bastille Day celebration at their restaurant, The Elkridge Furnace Inn. It was the biggest one yet, with a couple hundred folks expected. About half an hour into the party, the winds kicked up around the party tent, and guests rushed to the doors to watch members of the Johns Hopkins Pediatric Trauma Team arrive on the back lawn. By helicopter. Not an unimpressive way to introduce the evening's beneficiary. For many of the guests though, the helicopter wasn't the party standout.
