The Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant shut down one of its reactors Tuesday after employees at the southern Maryland facility detected problems with a control rod. Operators took the plant's Unit 1 reactor offline around 8:30 a.m. to replace one of the electrical coils connected to a control rod and test all the other control rods, said Kory Raftery, a spokesman for Calvert Cliffs. The move came after monitoring of the reactor picked up "electrical noise" in that control rod, a sign that part of the connection might have gone bad, he said.

Federal regulators are clearing the way for a Columbia-based company to compete in the field of magnetic resonance imaging technologies. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved a urethral coil and a prostate micro-coil, two devices made by Surgi-Vision Inc. that the company says will help improve the clarity of MRI scans. This development has the 2-year-old company poised to market its line of internal miniaturized coils to help in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases. "With a picture this clear, now you have the ability to guide the treatment with images that are microscopic, almost," said Sean Salmon, a spokesman for the company.

Hot enough for you? Air-conditioning season is upon us. If you're lucky enough to have air conditioning, you've probably turned it on for at least a while during the past week. The phones are ringing off the hook at HVAC contractors' offices as sweaty, disappointed people find that their air conditioners stopped working over the winter. What can you do to keep from joining the ranks of those poor souls? Regular maintenance will help the equipment operate more efficiently and dependably.

How much is a good night's sleep worth? How about $4,500? Michael Zippelli, chief executive officer of Jessup mattress maker Dormia Inc., is betting on it. He believes people would be willing to pay more for his beds, which are made from viscoelastic memory foam rather than coils or springs, if they gave them a try. "If you get a good night's sleep, you'll have a good day," he said. The Jessup manufacturer's business is growing, thanks to increasing interest in high-end bedding, whether it be traditional innerspring mattresses or "specialty bedding" made from foam or latex.

If Al Gallegos has his way, every man, woman and child will one day walk with a spring in their steps and a satisfied smile on their faces. The spring will come attached to the heel of a strange, space age-looking shoe Gallegos wants to sell you. And the smile, well, that will come once you put on the shoe, says the 73-year-old inventor of the Z-CoiL line of pain-relief footwear. Z-CoiLs first hit the shelves four years ago in New Mexico, and since then, the shoes have become something of a cult item.

Tiny platinum coils inserted into ruptured brain aneurysms are more effective in many cases than surgery in preventing disability and death, according to a study published today. Doctors said yesterday that the coils offer an exciting therapy for aneurysms, which kill more than 20,000 people annually in the United States alone. They can be inserted without cutting into brain tissue and subjecting patients to quite as much risk. "This is really a profound change in neurosurgery," said Dr. Kieran Murphy, an interventional radiologist who treated patients in the study at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

HESPERIA, Calif. -- It's not exactly that the aborigines of Australia's Western Desert have forgotten how to build traditional earth houses. It's just that it's been a while, and besides, they've heard about some new architectural ideas for using nature-friendly building materials.Sandbags, for instance.A half-dozen village leaders from the Ngurawanna community, in the Pilbara region of the great Outback, were on a walkabout of sorts this month at a seminar put on at Iranian-born architect Nader Khalili's Cal-Earth Institute.
