Left tackle Bryant McKinnie won't be seeing double when he lines up in his customary spot in the Ravens' home game against the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving night. The 49ers' starting right defensive end is Justin Smith, and their backup right outside linebacker is Aldon Smith. Justin Smith is an 11-year veteran who ranks third on the defense with 4½ sacks this season. Aldon Smith is a first-round pick in April who leads the team 7½ sacks thus far. McKinnie will likely see a lot of both players Thursday night.

When the Naval Academy's women's soccer season ended last fall, senior Shelly Moeller didn't want to leave the field, so she found a way to extend her playing career. She joined the lacrosse team. Even though the Cincinnati native had dabbled in lacrosse for only one season at prep school four years ago, she said yes when Navy coach Cindy Timchal came calling. "Once you get off the field and realize it's actually over, you want it back more than anything," Moeller said, "and to have the opportunity only a week [after soccer ended]

The decision to buy a vacation house puts a number of factors in play, especially in the current market, which is as flat as week-old beer. According to a National Association of Realtors (NAR) survey, sales of vacation houses decreased by more than 30 percent in 2007, with the median sales price also falling. "We went through a four-year period where price appreciation was 20 percent a year," says Pat Campbell-White at Re/Max Realty Group in Rehoboth, Del. "And that can't go on forever."

Be a good glistener Looking good is all in the lighting, or so we've been told. Fat lot of good that information does us. It's not like we can schlep around a selection of lamps and whip out the appropriate illuminator as needed. But there's a happy medium, says Smashbox, and it comes in the form of a very portable 1-ounce bottle. The company's new Artificial Light Luminizing Lotion ($28; www.smashbox.com) acts as a liquid highlighter. It comes in four pearlescent shades (pink, bronze, cream and white)

It's been a long time, 12 years, to be exact, since we regularly watched that American Tourister gorilla show us just how hard he could hurl our luggage around. The advertising campaign, which was introduced in 1970 and ran till the early '80s, was a Clio Award winner in 1981 and is in the Clio Hall of Fame."The gorilla advertising has always had terrific recognition among consumers," says Frank Steed, American Tourister president.So it's no surprise that, like so many things these days, it's being resurrected, but with a twist.

"The highest purpose of a city or a civilization," the late developer James Rouse said shortly after Columbia opened nearly 30 years ago, "is to nourish the growth of its people."And one of the greatest contributions a builder can make toward that end, Rouse contended, is "to bring art to the marketplace" -- by providing spaces where artists of all kinds can perform or exhibit their work.This quest to bring the fine and performing arts into the mainstream of the community was one of the most enduring themes of Rouse's long career as a banker, developer and urban visionary.

The Senate and House agriculture committees' attempt to integrate a "secret" $250 billion Farm Bill within the supercommittee's package of recommendations collapsed last month with the deficit panel's failure to reach agreement on how to cut federal spending and raise new revenues. As a result, agriculture policymakers are back to square one in crafting a new Farm Bill that will determine much of our nation's food, fiber, conservation and energy policies for the next five years, if not longer.

Nick Ferrara can almost feel the sweat and hear the low thud of impact as his right leg swings through the football. "Every time before a game you sit back there and you imagine a game-winning field goal going straight through," said the Maryland kicker, whose 2010 season was spoiled by a right groin injury. He's been rejuvenated — physically and emotionally — and tops the most recent depth chart at both field-goal kicker and punter in advance of Monday night's season opener against Miami.

Would-be restaurateurs could take notes from Daniel Chaustit on how to open a new restaurant on time, pretty much when he said he would. Of course, it helps if you start with a space that looks good before you ever lay a finger on it. But you have to be smart enough to know not to repaint the persimmon walls, or redo the striped banquettes, or take down the unusual rope design on the ceiling. The building, once a Hess shoe store in Belvedere Square, was transformed into a handsome, contemporary restaurant called Taste.

In state-of-the-art homes teeming with technological toys, the notion of a daybed is almost anachronistic. Even the word seems oddly old-fashioned. But despite its quaint label, the daybed has been inching its way back into the design lexicon and retail stores for the last few years. Often deeper than a sofa, or slim as a twin bed with or without sides, it's more a generous settee than a one-sided chaise. Designed for more than sitting, it beckons. Whether you sit, sprawl or flat out nap on it, the daybed is the ultimate piece of cocooning furniture.

College Park -- When Andrew Valmon took over the men's track and field program at Maryland four years ago, the first advice former coach Frank Costello gave him was: "Get with Ralph [Friedgen] and see if you can borrow some of the football players." Valmon approached the Terps football coach to find out if he could. An agreement has since developed between Friedgen and Valmon, benefiting both programs when it comes to speed. A door has been opened allowing Valmon to recruit sprinters from the nearby football practice field - although there is an understanding they are football players first - without sacrificing one of his 11.1 scholarships.
