It is time to plug the loopholes for coal-fired power plants in Maryland ( "New coal plant pollution controls eyed," Sept. 13). A report by the Maryland Department of the Environment found that many of the coal fired power plants in Maryland had not used their pollution controls continuously. If the Brandon Shores and Wagner plants had used their controls continuously in 2012, they could have cut nitrous oxide emissions by 2,000 tons. So what's the problem with nitrous oxide?

It wasn't magic. It was just Thursday. OK, it was a Thursday in October, so there already was something special about it, but the Orioles' 12-3 victory in Game 1 of their division series against the Detroit Tigers was just a postseason compilation of all the ways this team has found to win over the course of this amazing and uplifting season. Nelson Cruz, who was signed in February to be their designated playoff hero, launched a two-run home run in the first inning to find his name mentioned in the same sentence with some guy named Babe Ruth, Chris Tillman ground out five tough innings and the bullpen did what it has been doing with amazing regularity since Day One. Why should anyone be surprised by that?

It was all a blur -- a thick, gray blur.Firefighter Charles J. Campbell was on a rescue attempt in the 1300 block of Harlem Avenue in West Baltimore early yesterday when someone leaned out of a smoke-filled third-floor window and handed him something as he stood on an aerial ladder.Thick gray smoke escaped the window and forced tears in Mr. Campbell's eyes. He wasn't sure what the person had handed him at first. When his eyes cleared, he realized that the blur was an infant who had been handed to him by a woman.

It's a striking image: Figure skater Tonya Harding soars and speeds through a demanding routine, and once off the ice heads straight for an inhaler. Whether or not she wins a medal, Ms. Harding represents a triumph over a disease that afflicts from 10 million to 15 million Americans -- asthma.But while she and many asthmatics have their disease well enough under control to pursue regular activities, asthma apparently is growing in both number of sufferers and mortality -- both rose by about 30 percent between 1980 and 1987.

WHAT the aged Communist rulers of China should worry about is the downgrading of their government's credit rating by Standard & Poor's, a nonpolitical judgment that the Asian recession has caught up with it.What does give those rulers the most anxiety appears, however, to be a movement called Falun Gong, or Wheel of Law, which keeps doing its thing despite every effort of Beijing. Its thing is breathing, exercise and meditation. Millions are doing it, many in unison, in China and throughout the world.

VATICAN CITY - Struggling to breathe, Pope John Paul II underwent an urgent tracheotomy late yesterday after being rushed to the hospital for the second time in less than a month. The half-hour surgery, in which doctors inserted a tube through a small hole cut in the pope's windpipe to ease his respiratory crisis, was termed a success by a Vatican official. The pope remained in a 10th-floor suite of hospital rooms. Pope John Paul suffered serious breathing difficulties, complications from a relapse of the flu that sent him to the hospital Feb. 1 for nine days, said the official, reading a statement issued by a Vatican spokesman, Dr. Joaquin Navarro-Valls.

Although recent reports of Pope John Paul II's medical condition have focused on a series of seemingly separate ailments, doctors say his downward spiral likely stems from a larger problem - his long struggle with Parkinson's disease. In the past month, the 84-year-old Pontiff has suffered from breathing, swallowing and speech problems. He has had a breathing tube installed in his windpipe and a feeding tube passed through his nose into his stomach. He speech became so labored he managed to emit only a rasp while blessing pilgrims, then he was unable to speak at all. Doctors say such problems are common among those in the advanced stages of Parkinson's, progressive disease that destroys nerves controlling movement.

The operators of Facci , a casual Italian restaurant with locations in Laurel and Ellicott City, have opened a third restaurant in Howard County. But the new restaurant is not Italian — Pisco is Peruvian. And where there's Peruvian cuisine, ceviche is sure to be found. Pisco even has a "ceviche bar," where diners can watch chefs make 10 different fresh preparations of the marinated seafood dish. Also on Pisco's menu are Peruvian classics like charbroiled chicken; lomo saltado, a stir-fried dish with marinated strips of sirloin, served with French fries and white rice; picante de mariscos, a seafood dish in spicy cream sauce; and anticuchos de corazon o pollo, which are skewered beef hearts marinated in aji panca, a Peruvian red pepper.

Youngsters at a summer vocal camp in Howard County are learning the importance of bending their knees when they sing, lest they get dizzy, become queasy and pass out. Who knew something as simple as posture could derail a performance before you even bellow a note? That's just one tip youngsters learned this past week at the summer camp, offered by the county Recreation and Parks department and held at Mount Hebron High School. The weeklong vocal camp is among several hosted each summer by Recreation and Parks officials for preteens and teens looking to sharpen their performance skills.

Mary Beth York from Niles, Mich., was copying some old recipes a friend had collected over the years and stuck in the back of a cookbook from 1942 when she came across one called "Crisco Breath o' Spring" cake. Unfortunately, there was some damage to the recipe and she was unable to read parts of it. Apparently, the recipe was on the label of a can of Crisco, but when York contacted the Crisco company, she was told that they do not save all their old recipes and no longer had the one she was looking for. York was hoping someone still had the recipe and would be willing to share it with her. Diane Jensen from Alamogordo, N.M., sent in the recipe for the cake York was looking for that Jensen said was copied from a photograph of the original Crisco advertisement from 1945.

Ride-sharing companies such as Uber are bringing much needed choice and competition to a stagnant taxi industry that has failed to advance with the times ( "Uber to file long appeal of Maryland proposal to regulate it as taxi operator ," May 29). Unfortunately, Maryland regulators have also failed to modernize the antiquated policies that restrict access to convenient, affordable transportation options and increased economic opportunities.

Actor Christopher Reeve has undergone an experimental surgery that doctors believe will enable him to breathe regularly without a respirator for the first time since he broke his neck in a horseback accident in 1995. Physicians at University Hospitals of Cleveland used minimally invasive surgery to implant tiny electrodes, which control his breathing by stimulating the muscles of his diaphragm with a pacemaker-like device. Using the device, the paralyzed Superman star is able to breathe without a respirator for 15 minutes at a time.

It was a standard 30-minute hospital procedure, but it grabbed the world's attention overnight. Doctors in Rome performed a tracheotomy yesterday on Pope John Paul II - making an incision in his neck below the larynx and inserting a tube that can provide oxygen to his lungs and help clear fluids or other obstructions from his airway. The 84-year-old pontiff reportedly was breathing with the help of a mechanical ventilator. A Vatican spokesman described yesterday's procedure as "elective" and said the surgery had had a "positive" outcome.

I am sure I speak for most Marylanders when I say that Attorney General Doug Gansler and Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown have let us down with their bickering and mudslinging and dirty political tactics throughout this gubernatorial campaign. I can't go a day without seeing an outrageously obnoxious ad on TV or receiving a slimy flier in the mail. It doesn't have to be this way. On the contrary, Del. Heather Mizeur has been a breath of fresh air since day one. She has remained positive, even at moments it might have been easy to take a cheap shot at her opponents.
