The heat was stifling even at 11 a.m. yesterday when Eileen Marmon, a registered nurse, pulled her red Nissan up to an Annapolis rowhouse.

Erika Prophet, 22, who is expecting twins any day now, staggered to the door and invited Marmon to sit down. "Are you drinking enough water?" asked Marmon. She whipped out the bottle of water and placed it on a table next to an empty soda bottle.

Most of us know that summer weather can put us at risk for dehydration if we don't get enough fluids. But drinking plenty of water each day is just as important in winter. According to a report from the Health Care Financing Administration, dehydration is a frequent cause of hospitalization among people over 65, and research shows that about half of those hospitalized for dehydration die within a year. Nearly a third of all cases of serious dehydration result from pneumonia and flu, which peak during the winter.

BANGALORE, India -- Each year about 800,000 Indian children age 5 and younger die from dehydration and diarrhea, many during the summer months when wells dry up and water quality plunges.A U.S.-backed program to market a life-saving remedy could be the answer, but it is threatened by sanctions imposed on India for conducting nuclear tests last month. Officials for the U.S. Agency for International Development hope the program will be spared under a clause that exempts humanitarian aid from sanctions.

BOSTON -- For much of last night, Erik Bedard labored in his featured pitching matchup with ace Josh Beckett, battling not only a tough Boston Red Sox lineup, but also dehydration. He couldn't consistently throw his fastball over the plate. His curveball was darting into the dirt before hitting the inside of catcher Ramon Hernandez's mitt. And late in his outing, Bedard, his face flush white, admitted he felt as if he might faint right out on the mound. But in the most recent indication that Bedard is becoming one of the top pitchers in the American League, he overcame it all, relying more on guts and guile than his vast talent.

For the first time in my life, I have a little paunch. How do I get my abs back in shape -- in a hurry -- for swimsuit season? Whipping your abs into shape in a matter of weeks is a real challenge. Are you up for it? If so, you will have to commit to a three-part regimen: trim with cardio, tone with strength training and cut fat from your diet. Still on board? The cardio you choose should be highly aerobic, like running. Activities that incorporate the abdominals, like Pilates, swimming or tennis, are good off-day supplements.
