There's plenty that distinguishes Ravens rookie offensive lineman John Urschel from his teammates, including his prodigious academic career and potential in the field of mathematics. But what I couldn't fit into Sunday's story was the fact that, with all of his football and academic responsibilities, Urschel taught two classes at Penn State - and did it well, by all accounts. Urschel said it's not typical for master's students to teach at Penn State - that responsibility typically goes to doctoral students.

The Olive Tree is not the Olive Garden. But you would be forgiven for mixing them up. Both outside and in, the two restaurants look quite similar; they share a "rustic Italian" vibe and their logos are nearly identical. Both are reasonably priced, with menus offering a broad selection of popular Italian-American meals. The similarities between the two restaurants are obvious. But the Olive Tree, locally owned with locations in Glen Burnie and Aberdeen, differentiates itself from the mega-chain Olive Garden with an emphasis on what Maryland restaurants do best: seafood.

JOHN O'M. Bockris, distinguished professor of chemistry at Texas A&M University, is experimenting to turn mercury into gold. He has a grant of $200,000 to do it from William Telander, a California financier who has been charged with fraud by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Twenty-four of Texas A&M's 32 distinguished professors, as reported recently in the Chronicle of Higher Education, have asked the university to strip Mr. Bockris of his distinguished professorship.Alchemists have been trying to transmute elements into gold since the Dark Ages, and have been seen in the intellectual zTC community as frauds, quacks, nuts, mad or theoretically outdated.

Those who criticize the John Leopold case - that it was "too much squeeze for too little juice," a waste of taxpayer money - should read the 40-page memorandum by Dennis M. Sweeney, the judge who presided over the Anne Arundel County executive's trial. It is a superb document that navigates through foggy territory - how and when an elected official deploys the police officers provided by taxpayers for his protection - and draws a clear line between the criminal and the just creepy, between use and abuse.

Dan Schrider laughs heartily when he thinks back on it now. The morning he was to take the SAT, the then-Atholton High School student overslept. A student who, as he put it, was as focused on fun as he was on schoolwork, he didn't bother to reschedule the college entrance exam. It wasn't until the Fulton resident enrolled at Howard Community College - after hearing the detailed plans of classmates bound for four-year schools - that he began taking his education more seriously. Though he never earned a degree from HCC, Schrider credits his year-and-a-half stint there with helping him understand how far a quality education could take him. In fact, he says, it placed him on the road to becoming CEO of Olney-based Sandy Spring Bancorp, which according to NASDAQ is the largest publicly traded banking company headquartered and operating in Maryland.

After animal advocates protested a ruling by the state's highest court deeming all pit bulls inherently dangerous, state lawmakers now will consider a bill to overturn the decision during the special session this week. On Monday, Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee Chairman Brian Frosh said a circulated draft bill would make owners of any breed legally responsible for bites. In its April ruling, the Maryland Court of Appeals distinguished pit bull and pit bull mixes from other breeds, giving greater liability to dog owners and landlords who permit tenants to have them, in response to a 2007 attack on a Towson boy. The decision outraged pet owners and animal-rights groups, who say the court's decision unfairly targets dogs based on breed when such laws should be based on the dog's behavior.

China should be at the center of the 2012 Republican campaign for the White House. Unless Mitt Romney emphasizes specific solutions for creating jobs by ending unnecessary outsourcing to the Middle Kingdom, he won't win. President Barack Obama's economy is a disaster - since the recovery began in June 2009, economic growth has averaged a paltry 2.4 percent, and unemployment hangs stubbornly above 8 percent. Ronald Reagan, like President Obama, inherited a deeply troubled economy.

It is very sad and disturbing to continue reading and hearing about the skirmishes still transpiring in and around Afghanistan in order for the U.S. and NATO to maintain control of the terrorist forces, including al-Qaida and the Taliban, which is an absolute necessity. In my opinion, the most frightening aspect of this continual conflict is President Barack Obama's recent declaration that our troops would be withdrawn from this area in 2014 - a date which appears to be nothing more than a political ploy in order to please the American public, when the announcement of a more comprehensive statement by Mr. Obama to the effect that the troops would remain there until the problems were resolved, and our troops were no longer needed, would have been more practical.

A taste of Italy"Ottocento" at the Walters Art Gallery brings the world of 19th-century Italian art to Baltimore. Though there were no Manets or Cezannes, there were many artists of worth including Sylvestro Lega, Domenico Morelli, Andrea Appiani, Francesco Hayez and Giovanni Fattori among others. The art often pulses with the Italians' renewed spirit of nationalism, displays a desire to recapture Italy's glorious past, and exhibits a warmth of light and of spirit. The exhibit continues at the gallery, 600 N. Charles St., through Jan. 3. Call (410)

Just one sip is all it takes. That first swallow explodes with flavors not usually attributed to the grape: Arugula, sugar snap peas, moss, heather, lentils. There is a bracing and refreshing minerality, plus a weight on the palate that belies its flavor profile. The wine is surprisingly dense and chewy for an unoaked white wine. Just one sip will take you by surprise, but so will its name: gruner veltliner (grooner-velt-leaner). It's a struggle to verbalize, but not to internalize.

H. Emslie "Lee" Parks, former Baltimore County attorney and school board president who was also a highly regarded litigator, died Monday of cancer at Rutledge on Wye, his Queenstown home. The longtime Granite resident was 81. The son of a lawyer and a schoolteacher, Mr. Parks was born in Baltimore and raised in Catonsville. He was a 1949 graduate of St. Paul's School and earned a bachelor's degree in business from the Johns Hopkins University in 1953. After earning a degree in 1956 from the University of Maryland School of Law and entering the Maryland Bar, he began practicing law with his father, Zadoc Townsend Parks Jr., and two years later, became a partner in the firm of Parks and Parks in their One Charles Center office in downtown Baltimore.
