Maia Jones could have been sleeping in on this frosty weekend morning. Instead, the 20-year-old Towson University junior was up and gone early to rake leaves for Beverly Schiff, a total stranger in Northwest Baltimore. She looked a little awkward wielding the rake: "I don't know what I'm doing at all," she confessed. But Jones and her Sigma Lambda Gamma sorority sisters pitched in gamely Sunday with nearly 300 other volunteers to help 95 low-income elderly residents of Northwest Baltimore prepare for winter.

If you've tired of espresso drinks or you're just not a coffee person, you've probably encountered chai, the milky, sweet, spicy tea that is nothing short of comfort in a cup. Chai is a Hindi word for tea, so the phrase chai tea is redundant - except that for many Americans the word chai is a way of expressing the difference between a straightforward brew of tea leaves and the delightful concoction that comes to us from India. Indians have a gift for enhancing food and drink with spices, and their spiced tea, masala chai, is no exception.

The basic story is all too familiar: First-time buyers purchase a home, encounter unexpected problems with the property and wind up filing a lawsuit, charging fraud and misrepresentation. What makes the experience of Marshall and Sharon Freedman unusual is that the principal target of their court action is not a real estate firm or mortgage company, but a nonprofit housing and development agency that includes as part of its mission encouraging homeownership. The suit by the Freedmans in Baltimore Circuit Court, scheduled for trial in July, names as the lead defendant Comprehensive Housing Assistance Inc., or CHAI, an agency of The Associated: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore, and two of its employees.

It's an embarrassing problem. Not painful or life-threatening. Just embarrassing and upsetting. And expensive. Stress incontinence - the tendency to leak urine when you sneeze, cough or lift a heavy object - affects as many as 3 million women in the United States, about a third of all those who experience any sort of urinary incontinence. The cause isn't clear. It could be a consequence of childbearing, hormonal changes at menopause or simple aging. But something weakens the muscles that support the bladder and control the flow of urine through the urethra below it. And under the mechanical stress of a cough, a laugh or just walking, urine slips out. Incontinence of all types becomes more and more common as we age, and sufferers spend $20 billion a year, by one estimate, on absorbent pads, drugs and surgery in an effort to cope.

The rows of shelves that line Fallstaff Elementary School's library are half-bare, with stuffed animals serving as placeholders in spots where there are no books. But to Principal Faith Hibbert, the shelves appear half-full. For much of the past school year, there was not a single library book at Fallstaff Elementary, which recently converted from a middle school and did not have money to stock its library with elementary-age reading materials. Now, because of a partnership between Fallstaff and CHAI, the community development agency of Associated Jewish Charities, there are 2,000 new books -- ranging from encyclopedias to Spanish-language storybooks -- on the library's shelves.

BOSTON -- For 10 months on the run from Chinese authorities with orders to shoot if she resisted arrest, pro-democracy leader Chai Ling hid with strangers in remote villages and learned local dialects to blend in.

She even got an eyelid operation.The "commander in chief" of the crushed 1989 democracy protests in Tiananmen Square finally escaped China in a wooden crate at the bottom of a rat-infested boat. Her eventual destination: Boston, where she now works as a management consultant.

You can spend a happy lunch time sipping your way through the new Belvedere Square Market near the intersection of York Road and Northern Parkway. On a recent Sips tour of the reopened market, I discovered everything from first-rate smoothies and made-while-you-wait juice drinks to green tea soda, frozen banana chai and Vietnamese iced coffee. If you're like me, the idea of lettuce juice is a bit of a stretch. But stop by Planet Produce, where Steve Dietrich has perfected a menu of concoctions that will be a pleasant surprise.
