In case anyone thought art school students lack a practical sense of direction, Carole Schlein, newly minted graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art, told hundreds of people in her commencement remarks yesterday at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall that she has a plan. "I plan to spend a big chunk of time in front of the TV watching reruns of Golden Girls, gaining 10 pounds," said Schlein, 22.

Raj Suri always wanted to play baseball, but he was cut repeatedly from the Centennial High School team, so he tried acting instead. That decision might be about to pay off big time. The Ellicott City native spent $300 and several hours filming with his friend, director Ryan Anderson, to make a commercial that has been chosen as a finalist for Doritos' annual $1 million Super Bowl advertising contest. Now working as a software engineer in Arizona, Suri, 39, also produces and acts in commercials and the occasional movie.

According to a 2012 survey published in the University of Scranton's Journal of Clinical Psychology, losing weight is the No. 1 New Year's resolution. For some Baltimore residents, working toward that goal by eating healthfully has gotten easier over the past year, thanks to the introduction of healthy snacks in their office or school vending machines. In December, Howard County Executive Ken Ulman signed an executive order banning the sale of high-sugar drinks in county buildings and at county-sponsored events; Baltimore City is exploring similar initiatives.

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The talent scouts who grade high school football prospects track their picks through college and into the NFL. The touts make pronouncements about their ability to gaze into the future, but did any project Drew Brees as a Heisman Trophy candidate and a first-round draft choice four years ago? "How hot a commodity was I?" Brees said in early August, echoing a question. "I was cold." Purdue wants its first Big Ten title since 1967, and Brees is ready for one last season of outrageous passing statistics.

Mr. Ojeda came to Sheppard Pratt in July 1993 because he had survived, but still wasn't living.
