Using their keen eyesight, octopi stare at the world from two beady eyes. They maneuver through the sea with four pairs of bilaterally symmetrical arms that bear suction cups. They possess a hard beak - similar to that of a parrot, the only hard part about them - and as cephalopods, they squeeze into and out of tight places, helpful when fleeing moray eels and other predatory fish. Three hearts pump and heat blood that circulates through an octopus' system, and they have demonstrated both short- and long-term memory and problem-solving skills in mazes and in other experiments administered by biologists.

Merry Christmas Eve, happy holidays, feliz navidad and happy festivus.  Hope you are snuggled up in front of a warm fire and not fighting crowds at the mall (or your family in the living room). Rest happy with the knowledge that NORAD (The North American Aerospace Defense Command) is tracking santa's path again this year, a tradition that stretches back to 1955.  (Don't forget to check out the rival Google Santa Tracker .)  I guess it's slow at their office around the holidays too.  As you probably already know, the Baltimore Ravens clinched the AFC North again this year, ending a losing streak and defeating the Super Bowl champions New York Giants.  As the debate over gun control rages on, CNN is reporting that two firefighters are being treated for injuries after being shot at while responding to a fire in Webster, NY. || ONLINE TRENDS || RavensNation (NFL playoff picture)

As taken from the pages of The Aegis dated Thursday, December 27, 1962: Harford Countians awoke to beautifully snow-covered grounds on Christmas morning. Snow began falling before daybreak early in the morning, making it truly a White Christmas. Safe crackers made off with more than $1,000 in cash and merchandise from the Livezey Lumber Company on Route 40 in Aberdeen. The thieves entered the building by breaking two windows in the rear of the building. They proceeded to the second floor where they broke into four different safes.

A few months ago, things were looking bleak for Brooklyn Homes resident Christina Stocks. The 27-year-old single mother of two took a pay cut at work and fell behind in her rent payments. She was facing eviction - and a Christmas on the streets. Searching the Internet for some sort of help, Stocks came across the United Way's Family Stability Initiative. She called, and everything changed. The organization helped Stocks out with her rent - keeping the family in their apartment - and provided her with groceries and Christmas presents.

My baby boy is about to turn 1. The where-is-time-going panic that is inducing is a post for another day, but I'm starting to wonder, as he gets older, how do we differentiate his birthday celebration from the holiday celebrations? Aaron was due on Christmas Day, and I heard from many December babies how much they disliked having their birthdays wrapped up with the holidays (so to speak). I was terrified I'd go into labor on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day since my husband was in Afghanistan and my older son was understanding Christmas for the first time.

Christmas is a holiday of peace and joy, and most of all a time of wonder and innocence for children. It is a time of belief in magic and goodness, a day when small wishes come true. This year, in particular, we need reminding of that fact. It has been less than two weeks since a town in Connecticut was rent by unspeakable horror, an event so terrible that it spread sadness in the hearts of men, women, boys and girls across the globe. In the face of such profound grief, it feels difficult, even unseemly, to remember that miracles occur at Christmas.

When snowflakes began falling Monday afternoon, the commotion near Mondawmin Mall slowed. Children pointed to the sky. Shoppers, their shoulders previously hunched against the cold, stood to take in the scene. Inside, shoppers buzzed through stores buying last-minute gifts, extra wrapping paper or the final ingredients for holiday meals and desserts. At The Esquire barber shop, men and boys waited for a chair and a fresh cut while talking of Christmas Eve church trips and parties ahead.
