Last week, teams raced to Abu Dhabi, where it was hot. I decided to cheer for the Bunny Wives, and they came in last place. But they were saved by a non-elimination round. What will happen tonight? Still in Abu Dhabi, teams have to drive themselves to some sand dunes. But first! Remember the bag of Viking coins that they dug up in Norway? If they arrange the coins in the order that they're stenciled on the bag, and then turn them over, they'll have the numeric code to unlock their car. Do you know who already cracked the code?

It's a wet night after last week's Tribal Council, and Spencer is pissed that no one told him that they weren't going to vote Tony out. Tony thinks it's because they were toying with him, but the truth is that Kass (and possibly Woo) have figured out that no one likes Tony and they might stand a good chance to win against him in the final three. Tony talks to Woo about the final three, and Tony is thinking about bringing him and Kass (although he's lying about taking Woo because Woo is so darn likeable)

Who is the most over-demonized pop culture star of our time: Michael Jackson? Madonna? How about Joe Camel.The cartoon dromedary that R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. uses to pitch its Camel cigarettes has become an outsized symbol of the public's justified concern over health risks related to smoking. Last winter, U.S. Surgeon General M. Joycelyn Elders urged the banning of the campaign, which she said charmed adolescents into thinking that smokers are sexy and successful. In Maryland, gubernatorial candidate Lt. Gov. Mickey Steinberg brandished a "Joe Camel" windbreaker at a hearing on cigarette taxes as proof that tobacco companies are targeting children.

JOE Camel is in the news again. They used to say he was pitching Camels to the kids. And now they're saying he's making camel's eyes at the girls.Sometimes a guy feels he just can't win.Last year Joe Camel -- half human, half Bactrian, whose parentage defies examination -- underwent a transformation. Previously, we all knew Joe as a typical macho male. Joe astride his Harley. Joe with his top-gun Navy buddies. Joe in the pool hall. Joe the Cool Character in dark shades. Joe of the pubescent muzzle.

Old Joe Camel, the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. "smooth character," should hit the desert trail because his message is too seductive to children, the surgeon general and the American Medical Association said yesterday.Surgeon General Antonia Novello's invitation to cramp the style of Old Joe, who shoots pool, plays Las Vegas and woos women with a Camel in his snout, raised the stakes of a public relations battle over the marketing of tobacco and alcohol products. Ms. Novello's status as surgeon general -- and her notification yesterday of the Federal Trade Commission of her concern -- also raised a First Amendment issue.

LAST WEEK, just over the Howard Street bridge, heading away from downtown, I crossed a camel's path.Stopped at a traffic light on my way to a business meeting, I glanced up and saw the camel rising above the brick building tops in vibrant, unnatural hues, stretching, it semed, far into the sky.I thought he saw me too; he winked at me and grinned as if there were an understanding between us -- camel and man, man and camel.But his wink and grin were not meant for me alone.I am a local advertising professional, and the camel is the symbol for Camel cigarettes.

Two Arabian camels who spend their summers in Baltimore are taking on passengers for short daytime trips past their penguin and elephant neighbors at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore for the next few months. The one-humped animals, also known as dromedaries, arrived at the zoo last week from another facility in Missouri, where they spent the winter, the zoo said. Rides on "Pam" and "Mocha" for zoo visitors began Saturday. The rides, available daily between 10:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. through Labor Day, cost $7, the zoo said.

Question: How can I get rid of striped crickets in my basement? I've heard them called camel back crickets, spider crickets, and sprickets. Are these the same? Is it true they eat clothing? Do they bite or sting? Answer: The photo you sent though our website is a camel cricket. All those names are the same critter. Crickets have chewing mouth parts not designed for biting or stinging. They typically feed on living or decaying plants, fungi, or organic materials. It is possible for them to feed on organic fiber clothing, but this is rare.

In the businesses that Rudolph W. Giuliani built and bought these last six years, more deals have yet to be examined, more dots connected in the picture of his great financial success. But enough are there already, with lines between them, for a shape to have clearly emerged. It's a picture of a politician leading a parade, as Mayor Giuliani so often did. Only the marchers behind him aren't drum majorettes or wartime veterans or firefighters or police. They're a ragtag band of Texas lawyers and energy lobbyists, penny-stock sharpies and security-industry entrepreneurs, agog with visions of the ultimate pay-to-play presidency.

The attorneys general of Maryland and seven other states filed lawsuits yesterday against R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co., the nation's second-largest cigarette maker, accusing it of violating its vow not to entice children to smoke by using cartoons in its marketing campaigns. The states' top law enforcement officials focused their ire on a lighthearted, nine-page illustrated advertisement for Camel cigarettes in the November issue of Rolling Stone magazine that they said was designed with children and adolescents in mind.
