The dark specks swirling around in big water-filled tanks at the Columbus Center hardly look like fish, much less the kings of the ocean. But from these tiny beginnings, a team of Maryland scientists hopes to unlock the secrets of "farming" Atlantic bluefin tuna, one of the most prized fish on the planet — and one of the most threatened. "For me, it's the Holy Grail," said Yonathan Zohar, a professor of marine biotechnology with the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and head of the aquaculture research center at the Institute for Marine and Environmental Technology at the Inner Harbor.

THERE ARE only two individuals in the totality of American history who have federal holidays named after them: the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Christopher Columbus. Presidents Washington and Lincoln once were in that company, but their birthdays were morphed into President's Day. If Washington and Lincoln were passed over for this honor, it really must take something to get on this holiday list. So on this Columbus Day, it's worth examining the legacy of Columbus and why we bestow such a high honor upon him. The obvious reason is Columbus's discovery of America, sort of. That, of course, implies that those who were already on American soil before 1492 don't really count.

It's not often you hear of a traditional Irish band that features the name of an impoverished African nation in its title. But the Tanzania Ceili Band, which performs lively Irish music for social dancing, isn't your average group.

The musicians bolster the fundraising efforts of the Tanzanian Children's Project, a nonprofit formed five years ago by Knights of Columbus Columbia Council 7559.

Joe Datsko was an admitted workaholic for the first 25 years of a 47-year career as a mechanical engineering professor at the University of Michigan.

" That changed in the early 1970s when the younger of Datsko's two sons - he also has three daughters - was invited to the 1972 U.S. Olympic trials in cycling. Robert Datsko, who was in high school at the time, failed to secure one of the 12 spots, finishing in the top third of the 66-person field.

Leafy tree branches stuck out over the top of the historic red-brick walls, making it seem like the school's only future inhabitants would be squirrels and birds. But Kevin Bell and Michael Barland saw more. They are investing about $14 million into the run-down 120-year-old building, also known as Public School 99, to make it livable for dozens of families.
