Excitement has turned to worry at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, where one of two pregnant dolphins has apparently developed complications that may threaten her unborn calf.The dolphin, named Hailey, is a "first-time mother, and she seems to be having an uncomfortable pregnancy," says marine mammal curator Doug Messinger. "It's got us very worried."On the bright side, the aquarium's second pregnant dolphin, Shiloh, seems to be doing fine as her early March due date draws closer. That animal has had a calf before.

Editor's note: The king of birds finds his true identity after learning the way of the chicken. A farmer went out one day to search for a lost calf. He called out all the time, hoping that the calf might hear, but also because he felt so alone. He climbed up a gully in case the calf had huddled there to escape the storm. And that was where he stopped. For there, on a ledge of rock, close enough to touch, he saw the most unusual sight -- an eagle chick, very young, hatched from its egg a day or two before.

So what can you say about a country whose national sport involves a bunch of tough guys on horseback, kicking, whipping and screaming as they fight over a decapitated calf carcass? You can probably safely say that this is not the most genteel neighborhood in the world. And that has certainly been proved true by generations of would-be conquerors who have found their way to this country. The game is buzkashi. The country is Afghanistan. In a recent match in the Afghan capital of Kabul, the sport's free-for-all roots were on clear display.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Mike Fetters is in good health, but still hurt by the rumors.There were whispers last season that Fetters had an arm injury, that he was damaged goods and not worthy of a serious look in the free-agent market this winter. The Orioles didn't buy it.That's why Fetters is in camp as a nonroster player who believes he has something to prove to all of baseball.His first appearance yesterday didn't go exactly as he wanted, though it could have been worse. Two batters into his only inning, Fetters was putting out fires, escaping a second-and-third, no-out jam with only one run allowed.

On the day he was supposed to leave the farm and go to college, Bobby's mother came into his room at 4 a.m. and turned on the light. Bobby knew what the white glare meant. It was a bugle call, his mother's way of saying something bad had happened, she needed help, time for the new man of the house to get up. He didn't wash his face or mess with his hair or even look at himself in the mirror. Bobby Stiles wasn't that kind of teen-ager. He kept his hair stubble-short, and he owned only one nice pair of tennis shoes for the nights he drove into town to hang out with friends.

An 11-day-old dolphin calf born at the National Aquarium in Baltimore died Sunday morning, shortly after staff first noticed it was breathing irregularly. The cause of death has not been determined for the 30-pound, 2- to 3-foot-long calf that was born March 10 to an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin named Jade. A necropsy was performed at the Johns Hopkins University's comparative pathology lab by National Aquarium veterinarians and Hopkins staff. Aquarium officials were awaiting test results from cultures, which could take one to two weeks, according to a statement from the aquarium.

The bottlenose dolphin calf born March 26 appears to be gaining weight again after returning to a more normal nursing pattern, mammalogists at the National Aquarium in Baltimore said today.Last week, officials were concerned because the calf was losing weight and didn't appear to be getting the nourishment it needed."We're still concerned about the calf," said Nedra Hecker, senior mammalogist. "But we're feeling better about it."She said the staff had stopped its 24-hour watch of the calf and now keeps an 8 a.m.-to-6 p.m. watch.

The amphitheater at the National Aquarium in Baltimore will be closed at least until mid-week so Nani, a 21-year-old dolphin, and her new calf -- born at 5:25 p.m. yesterday -- can have some quiet, get-acquainted time.The Atlantic bottlenose dolphin mother and calf appear to be all right, said Vicki Aversa, spokeswoman for the National Aquarium.Nani was in labor for about an hour, considered average for a dolphin bearing its third calf.The calf's sex will not be known for many months, said Ms. Aversa.

THIS has been the year of money. The greatest peace-time economy the world has ever seen has given rise to whispers of e-dynasties as millions make a killing in the stock market.Young men and women wake in the morning as ordinary citizens only to go to bed as millionaires, thanks to wildfire IPOs and day trading run amok. CNN fairly trips over itself to bring instant market updates to viewers throughout the day who are, presumably, at work, but not too busy to watch their money grow.If the Dow loses 300 points in one day, network news producers now deem it so important they're likely to interrupt regularly scheduled programming to report it. This represents a somewhat subtle but telling shift in the public's perception of what the stock market is and how it functions.
