This is one in a series of occasional articles about the good, the bad and the ugly of looking for love online. The way Shirley Thomas remembers it, her online setup was dreamy. The middle-aged banker whom she agreed to meet at a coffee shop in Owings Mills Mall turned out to be as tall and attractive as he had claimed to be. He was a smart dresser. He smelled so good. And to top it off, he was smart and knew how to carry on a conversation. Score one for Internet dating, the 54-year-old Owings Mills nurse thought.

Academy life is a little easier for Navy quarterback Keenan Reynolds as he begins his sophomore year. The adjustment from being away from home, the transition to a more rigorous academic workload and getting accustomed to the off-field responsibility of a midshipman have become routine for Reynolds. Being the de facto leader of the team's offense and its unquestioned star, no matter how much he tries to deflect the attention that comes with each, has been admittedly more difficult as Reynolds gets ready for Navy's 2013 season opener Sept.

The light moved slowly over the casting of a dinosaur bone, up and down, side to side, scanning as many as 19,500 points per second that streamed into a computer. A small group from the Johns Hopkins University watched as a 3-D image formed on the screen. One by one, all the bone castings they had brought to Direct Dimensions Inc. in Owings Mills would be translated into digital images. The images would then be fitted together to re-create the skull of a hadrosauroid, a dinosaur that roamed the Earth eons ago, allowing the researchers to open and close its virtual jaw. The goal: to better understand what it ate and, thus, more about the area in the Gobi Desert where the bones were uncovered.

Changes at Camden Yards for the 2002 season aren't being restricted to the clubhouse and ticket booths. The numbers on the outfield fence apparently won't look the same, either. Two weeks removed from revealing price increases on most seats at the ballpark, the Orioles are expected to return home plate to its original location after pushing it back 7 feet last year. Club spokesman Bill Stetka confirmed that the Orioles have contacted Major League Baseball, which must grant its approval for the dimensions to be altered.

DALLAS - Frustrated in their search for free-agent pitching help, the Orioles are considering assisting their pitchers by moving home plate at Camden Yards closer to the backstop, according to club sources. No decision has been finalized, according to club officials, but one must be made in the next several days as renovation of the field approaches a critical stage. Drainage tiles already have been installed beneath the outfield and are scheduled for installation beneath the infield this week.

GREENBELT -- Scientists with NASA's "Stereo" mission have gotten their first look at the sun in three dimensions - a revelation that could mean more accurate forecasts of the solar storms that rattle power grids and blind the satellites vital to modern communications, navigation and weather forecasting. The revolutionary new view of the sun comes from two Maryland-built spacecraft launched last October and controlled from the campus of the Johns Hopkins University's Applied Physics Lab near Laurel.

The plight of the public charity hospital is a familiar one around the country - struggling to care for the uninsured, surviving with hefty subsidies from local governments. So there was a familiarity to the announcement this week that Prince George's Hospital Center and other facilities in the Dimensions Healthcare System might shut down in 60 days because of a financial squeeze blamed on care for the uninsured. What's different, however, is that Maryland was supposed to have beaten the charity hospital problem, through a unique-in-the-country system that lets all hospitals bump up their rates to pay for uncompensated care.

Your weather forecast is about to get more accurate. The Sterling, Va., office of the National Weather Service (which covers the Baltimore area) in late February received equipment that uses what is known as dual-polarization technology. What that means is the office has upgraded from two-dimensional to three-dimensional radar that sweeps the skies on both a vertical and horizontal plane, giving it a clearer picture of rain, snow or hail before it reaches the ground. That means better estimates of rainfall rates, hail presence and size, and the location of the line between rain and snow.

In her 30 years with The Dance Dimension , feisty dance director Marilyn Byers has rarely missed an opportunity to welcome back her star dancers at Thanksgiving time. One of those rare missed opportunities came last year, when the two-time cancer survivor turned over the responsibility for putting on the show to two of her proteges. This year, Byers is back and more energetic than ever, as stars of past and present Dance Dimension rosters will be joined by a few "pick up" dancers for a very special one-night-only show this Saturday, Nov. 19 at the Slayton House Theatre.

As midnight approached, C.J. Brown sat slumped in a chair inside Maryland's football complex after Maryland's 56-45 loss to Clemson on Saturday. A reporter asked Brown how he felt. "I'm tired," Maryland's new starting quarterback replied. And why not? Brown had just rushed for 162 yards. It was easily the most by a quarterback in school history, besting the 139 yards by Dennis O'Hara against Wake Forest in 1969. Brown had rushed for 124 yards a week earlier in a loss to Georgia Tech.

"What's in California?" quizzed Don Worsham, the self-proclaimed Mayor for Eternity of Glen Ridge Drive. "Just a lot of congestion and pollution, from what I've heard. And phony actors and singers. Betcha there's not even an American Legion post there. " Well, dear friend and neighbor, you're right on the first two points, but a bit off base on the last. During our eight hotel tour de force, I saw dozens of Legion posts. And all of them, like most of the Golden State, were draped in fragrant red, yellow and white roses, all wild.

Torrey Smith's first NFL training camp has been about adjusting to a new offensive system and a different level of expectations. After an entire offseason of presuming he would be a backup as a rookie, Smith felt his NFL world change in a matter of days when Derrick Mason signed with the New York Jets and Malcom Floyd stayed in San Diego. The second-round pick out of Maryland is now preparing himself to start beyond Thursday's preseason opener at Philadelphia. Smith is ready to line up in the spot vacated by Mason, the franchise's all-time leading receiver, when the Ravens kick off the season against the Pittsburgh Steelers in 32 days.

They've heard just about all the suggestions by now. But if you insist, you can approach members of the Rhymes with Opera ensemble Saturday at the Windup Space and offer your response to what is actually not a request. "We've had people come up to us and go, 'I've got it: Deepak Chopra,'" said Ruby Fulton, one of the Peabody Conservatory alums who founded the group. David Smooke, a composer and Peabody faculty member who teaches music theory and rock music history, has also heard his share of reactions since letting people know he wrote a work for Rhymes with Opera.

Bit by bit, Michael Raphael's company is digitizing the real world. Direct Dimensions, the Owings Mills firm he founded, scans items, buildings and even people and turns the results into 3-D computerized models. It has trained its equipment on everything from the presidential limousine to submarines to the Lincoln Memorial. Clients have used these digital copies for projects ranging from building renovations to special effects for films. Seeing growth potential in one of its niches, Direct Dimensions is preparing to spin off a new firm — ShapeShot — that will focus specifically on scanning people's faces.

"Avatar," the most high-profile, fiercely debated and expensive 3-D film in history, is poised to become something more than a conversation piece or a mega-blockbuster. If its writer-director, James Cameron, manages to flood the pop-cultural mainstream as he did with his last film, "Titanic," it could transform the way people view entertainment not just on movie screens but on TVs and personal computers. David Modell, former president and CEO of the Baltimore Ravens and now chairman of the board of the technology company 3ality Digital, thinks the game has already changed.
