Is it just me, or is Paul Schurick looking a lot cooler now that he's on the hot seat? The longtime aide to former Governors Bob Ehrlich and William Donald Schaefer always came off as a buttoned-down bureaucrat to me. Until I saw him in April at Schaefer's funeral. He said hello outside the church and for a moment, I didn't recognize him. This is a guy I've lunched with a several times. He's someone I know well enough to have swapped recipes with him. (Schurick may prove to be a political dirty trickster, but he's also a foodie.

Sydney Miller, a 15-year-old sophomore at Broadneck High School in Annapolis, lost more than 30 pounds after switching to a vegan diet and giving up all processed foods last year. She also helped her dad, Todd Miller, lose weight. "I eat completely clean," she says. "Adults come up to me and ask me how I do it. " Sydney, who is hoping to be a nutritionist, is sharing her interest in eating well through a multimedia project she created for BeeQuest, a national competition that asks high school students the question: "What's Nutrition Mean to You?"

There was no buzz surrounding Damonte Dodd coming out of Queen Anne's County High School on the Eastern Shore. The 6-foot-9 center was viewed as a long-term project when he signed with Maryland. Some even questioned Mark Turgeon for taking Dodd in the first place, considering that he had both Shaquille Cleare and Charles Mitchell coming in at the same time. There was little buzz about Dodd last winter, except among those who saw him play at Massanutten Military Academy in Woodstock, Va. Dodd averaged 14 points, eight rebounds and four blocked shots on a team stacked with more highly-touted Division I prospects.

On a night when we saw a six-man tag match involving John Cena, Roman Reigns and Chris Jericho be the main event, all the buzz came from the announcement that the WWE is inviting Michael Sam to Raw in Baltimore next week. Midway through this Monday's Raw , the WWE ran a graphic (complete with Monday Night Football graphic and music) officially announcing that they were inviting the recently released Sam to Raw. JBL commented that he couldn't believe Sam wasn't signed to a team, and how unfair that was. Cole said that if Sam does accept, he'd be granted ringtime and an open mic to say whatever he wanted.

To no one's surprise, Saturday in Long Island broke gloomily, with neither dark angry clouds nor a blazing sun. The sky just hovered, as did an unmoving humidity. The clouds are burning off now, and it could be a sunny afternoon. Belmont Park feels crowded and cramped. Everything is behind some sort of barrier. Every passage way is too narrow for the people trying to get through it. What should have been the anxious buzz of people hoping to see history is now the unsettled disappointment of knowing they won't . The crowd isn't nearly what it would have been but it's still large and, remember, there's nobody allowed out in the infield here.

Tapes 'n Tapes. Beirut. TV on the Radio. Cold War Kids. Lupe Fiasco. Lily Allen. Birdmonster. Grizzly Bear. Sufjan Stevens. The Knife. Clipse. Destroyer. The Hold Steady. Joanna Newsom. These were, by a certain measure, the most important new musicians of 2006. Heard half of them? If you're a casual or even moderately engaged pop fan, possibly not; your ears are busy with commercial radio, ring tones and music television. If you're involved in the music industry, you know the names and might have heard some music.

In a few weeks, the buzz will be over. No more Janis Joplinesque shrieks from the trees of Baltimore. The cicadas will be gone. Didn't have time to commemorate their emergence with a keepsake? No need to worry. Along with thongs, T-shirts, wall clocks and mugs, you can now purchase a cicada carcass and have it shipped to you via Cicadaville.com. Or so Cicadaville says. For $5.95, the Cincinnati-based Web site says, it will send customers an "attractive" cardboard jewelry box lined with cotton, and containing, of course, an unpreserved cicada.

After a week spent writing post after post about "House of Cards" and its troubles in Maryland, I had a chance Sunday on Howie Kurtz's "Media Buzz" to finally weigh in on the troubles of "Meet the Press" and its host, David Gregory. It's been a bad three years for the show as it went from first to third place in the Sunday morning wars. And Gregory's failure as a host was brought ijnto sharp focus last week with a report that NBC News hired a "psychological consultant" to interview Gregory's wife, friends and others about him. NBC claims it was a "brand consultant' -- not a shrink -- as if that is so much better.

Oh, how best to describe BuzzFeed? You could start with a recent day on the site's main page, which featured this mix of stories: "14 creepiest things kids have said about their imaginary friends"; "27 reasons 'Hook' is actually the perfect holiday movie"; and If Buzz from 'Home Alone' had Instagram. " But you'd also find serious-minded pieces on Benghazi and protests in the Ukraine. Jack Shepherd, BuzzFeed's 34-year-old editorial director, said this ever-present mix on the site reveals much about the way people experience and process media in 2013.

I wrote a story for today's paper on a proposal for a large development on what is now part of the University of Maryland 's golf course. The proposal is just a “concept,” the principals say. As now constituted, it would include a large, mixed-use development (hotel, retail, residences, office) and a direct link to the campus area from the I-95/I-495 interchange. At least some golf course land would be “repurposed.” Obviously, this would be a vast undertaking.

Amy Schumer can tell a story. Knowing how to craft a short narrative and make it pay off with a laugh has, after all, helped make her one of the hottest comedians on TV and the concert circuit these days. So, let the star of Comedy Central's “Inside Amy Schumer” explain how it came to be that she finished her work for a bachelor's degree in theater at Towson University in 2003 but didn't receive her diploma until 2007 - in the lobby of Baltimore's Lyric Opera House. “I say I graduated in 2003 from Towson, but that's not actually true,” the 31-year-old New-York-born performer says in a recent interview.

Part of the appeal of the NCAA basketball tournament is the drama of a tight game in the closing seconds. Each possession becomes precious. Each shot could be game-changing. So Mr. Flip can put up with the seemingly inexhaustible supply of timeouts and the constant parade to the foul line. But do we have to see the buzz-killing commercials every time? Mr. Flip implores you, CBS, to stick with the game instead of breaking away for a commercial every time there is a timeout in the last minutes of a back-and-forth contest.

Description: Unusual proteins within microbes allow the organisms to survive in cold and salty conditions in Antarctica, and could in theory help support life on Mars as well, according to NASA-funded study at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. The study revealed slight differences between core proteins in ordinary organisms and those known as Haloarchaea, which can live in severe conditions with extreme salinity or temperatures, for example. They studied such microbes from Deep Lake, a salty body of water in Antarctica, and found that atoms within the core proteins were more loosely connected, "allowing them to be more flexible and functional," DasSarma said.
