On the Friday before Election Day, President Barack Obama was ahead of former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney in 7-Election polling throughout Maryland. Billed as unabashedly unofficial and unscientific, 7-Election invites customers to vote by selecting specially marked coffee cups, blue for Obama and red for Romney. Nationally, Obama was polling 59 percent to Romney's 41 percent. In Maryland, Obama's lead was more stretchy (65 percent to 35 percent), and in Baltimore it was stretchier still (68 percent to 32 percent)

For Austin Bradburn, a fresh cup of coffee, brewed and delivered during the busy early-morning hallway rush, became an unlikely path into the complex social world of his high school. Bradburn and eight fellow Patapsco High School special-education students began brewing coffee in their Patriot Java Stop last December, an idea launched by their teachers as a way to give the students real-world skills for their life after high school. "Nothing we have ever done has given them so many gains," said Dana Evans, who has taught the students with Beth Gray for the past dozen years.

" In a recent phone interview, Seidel, 45, who lives in Reisterstown, talked about how she got started in body painting, where it's taken her in her career and why she, well, does what she does.

And now you can't bring your cup of coffee on board the airplane. It's the latest new rule laid down by the nation's security wizards. Everyone knows it's ridiculous - the notion that you can toss together a few liquids and make an explosive is a fiction from late-night movies. You might as well prohibit bald men on the grounds that the evil Lex Luthor was bald and so was Blofeld, the head of SPECTRE. But we ditch our venti latte in the trash barrel (goodbye, four bucks) and board the flight, and there we read in the paper that aggressive CIA questioning of an al-Qaida bigwig - stripping him, turning the air conditioner to 40 degrees, blasting him with Red Hot Chili Peppers music - broke him, so he ratted on Jose Padilla, a terrorist who set out to make a dirty bomb and who believed that by swinging a bucket of uranium in a circle over his head, he could separate plutonium.

I must have my cup of coffee before I exercise each morning. No java and I can't function. Recently, a gym-buff friend told me that caffeine before a workout is bad for you. It dehydrates you and falsely stimulates energy, he says. What do you think? While those with high blood pressure should stay away from coffee before a workout, studies have shown that coffee drinkers have better stamina and less muscle soreness than nondrinkers. That said, caffeine is addictive, and if you're able to get your day started without it, more power to you. If you can slowly wean yourself off that morning fix, you will find you don't really need it at all. There is the famous claim that apples are more effective at waking you up in the morning than coffee.

Care for a premium-priced bacon and egg sandwich with that latte?

Sorry this is a bit late, Scores Baltimore Hockey had a triple-header last night, and I'm proud to say we won them all.

I just saw a commercial for pulled pork pizza from Papa John's. Can anyone confirm whether that is worth eating? I feel like it's a great idea, but the execution needs to be there. In return for your assistance, I will compile the day's local sports headlines in the Coffee Companion, as I do most days but did not do yesterday. - Manny Machado provided his first bit of Orioles Magic last night, getting his first walk-off hit in the form of a 12th-inning home run in a 7-6 win over the Angels . I wish he would have pimped it a little more, but that's just me. It's a typical Orioles win, if you think back to 2012, but Dan Connolly believes this team is better than that one . - There was plenty of off-field news, including a wild Hollywood Reporter article about the dispute over MASN money that could have huge long-term affects on the organization, and some trade deadline notes.

All I do is recap the previous day's sports headlines.

I would want a decent-sized break in the middle if I played baseball every day from March to October too, but since I don't, I can fairly say that this week is unbearable and I'm glad sports are back tonight. You can tell how little has happened in the past day by all the analysis found in the Coffee Companion, where we recap the previous day's sports headlines. - The Orioles open the second half with three games in Oakland, the team that was responsible for Manny Machado's reputation taking a hit but ultimately might have also sparked his turnaround this year.

You have the sofa. You have the chairs, the TV, the lamps. The last big piece for the living/family room is likely to be the coffee table. Finding a table can be a significant challenge. How do you know what size, height and shape? Chicago interior designer Mitchell Putlack offered some clues. Know thyself. Know how you are going to sit at the coffee table, Putlack says. "Are you going to sit on a sofa or chair and put your feet up" on the table? If so, look for an ottoman-style coffee table and put trays atop it to hold food and drinks.

Summertime is getting easier for coffee lovers as choices expand in the bottled-coffee category. Starbucks' successful Frappuccino is getting some competition on store shelves, and competition is good news for consumers.

Its new Jakada drink offers a sweet combination of Mountain Grown Folger's coffee and low-fat milk. The drink comes in 10.5-ounce, single-serve plastic bottles - no need to worry about broken glass with this drink - and is available in three flavors: French Roast, Vanilla and Mocha.

I'm not going to run down the All-Star Game, mostly because I decided to not really watch it, but let's just bask in the fact that we're very close to real baseball coming back. I miss real baseball, which you can tell th er e is none of judging by what fills the Coffee Companion this morning. - Nelson Cruz and Adam Jones each went 0-for-2 last night in the All-Star Game, which the AL won 5-3.
