Parents hoping to raise baby Einsteins by using infant educational videos are actually creating baby Homer Simpsons, scientists said today. For every hour a day that babies 8 to 16 months old watched such popular video series as Brainy Baby or Baby Einstein, they knew six to eight fewer words than other children. The makers of the videos sell hundreds of millions of dollars worth each year to parents aiming to put their babies on the fast track, even if they are still working on walking.

Mutter Museum may leave you shocked and horrified or amazed and fascinated. Either way, its collections of bones, bodies, body parts, plus tumors and other terrors, are unforgettable. The nation's finest and oldest medical museum - celebrating its 150th anniversary this month - bills itself as "disturbingly informative," and that is absolutely true. Specimens lining its wood-and-glass display cases reveal the effects of epidemics and diseases on the body, as well as an amazing array of human curiosities and anomalies.

FOR A SMALL TOWN, Annapolis has had some of the nation's most interesting radio stations. Credit two men: Morris H. Blum, 87, whose WANN is still controlled by the same family that started it in 1946, and Jake Einstein, who may be 79 but has been a trailblazer in rock programming.Mr. Einstein has now signed off, selling his two Annapolis stations, WRNR-FM and WYRE-AM. The buyer of the former -- for $2 million -- is Empire Broadcasting, a firm headed by the boss of shock-jock Howard Stern.

SEATTLE - Astronomers have measured the speed of gravity for the first time and found, reassuringly, that it conforms to their expectations of the universe. Gravity travels through space at roughly the same speed as light, scientists announced yesterday. Until now, they could only assume that the two zipped along at the same pace, as Einstein's general theory of relativity predicts. Observations made during a rare celestial alignment last September provided the measurement of the speed of gravity, one of physics' fundamental constants.

As the world marks the 50th anniversary of Albert Einstein's death this week, a team of physicists is madly chasing the ghost of one of his last great unproven ideas: gravity waves. In his 1916 theory of general relativity, Einstein predicted that collapsing stars, colliding black holes and other cosmic train wrecks would unleash ripples of gravitational radiation through space at light speed. Nine decades later, scientists are still trying to find them. Even Einstein wondered whether the subatomic flutters he predicted could ever be detected.

Jacob "Jake" Einstein, a radio station owner whose broadcasts drew a devoted audience for the alternative rock music scene he championed, died of an aortic aneurism and emphysema complications Wednesday at his Potomac home. He was 90. Mr. Einstein, who called himself "the oldest hippie alive," spent nearly six decades in radio work, much of its as a salesman and station owner who had an astute ear for emerging musical tastes. He made a name by giving a free hand to his disc jockeys to play the music they wanted - not what the music industry was pushing.

In halls of science, Albert Einstein is worshiped for reinventing space and time. In the hallways of retailers, the shaggy-haired scientist is revered for a different reason: He's a stellar pitchman. Although Einstein died 50 years ago Monday, the man who refused to profit from celebrity in life is one hot commodity in death. Apple Computer, DaimlerChrysler, Fuji Film, Perrier and Xerox have all licensed Einstein's name or image for advertisements in recent years. Meanwhile, the scientist's droopy lids and unruly halo of hair fuel an inflating universe of Einstein action figures, neckties, coffee mugs, T-shirts and relativity-related kitsch.

It does not take an Einstein to figure out who is dumb or dumber in the state legislature ("Too dumb to be corrupt?" Oct. 19). All one has to do is track delegates and senators during the 90-day session and attend the sessions as the months go by. I would be interested to know how few people voted for Sen. Ulysses Currie in his district out of the possible voters, only for him to end up in such a powerful position that affects all the citizens in...

When somebody says "German food," you think sauerbraten, spaetzle and a nice Black Forest cake, true? And the phrase "German health food" would simply mean half-portions of strudel and dumplings and schnitzel, right? Not so fast, mein schatzi. 12:35 The doors of Cafe Einstein open up to a long, clean, well-lighted and comfortable dining area and counter that hasn't nearly shed its brand-new sheen. The cafe's two owners greeted us as we entered the shop at 1705 Eastern Avenue in Fells Point.

Thomas Fulton, a longtime physics professor at the Johns Hopkins University who swapped notes with the great minds of science, died of heart failure on April 8 at his daughter's home in Ruxton. He was 83. Born Tamas Feuerzeug, in Budapest, Hungary, he immigrated to the United States with his family in 1941 at the age of 14. His immediate family fled Nazis in Hungary and Germany, where many of his other family members died in the Holocaust, and traveled to fascist Spain, where he secured three boat tickets to Cuba by borrowing $100 from a British consular official.

The turbo-charged guy with a head full of swirling salt-and-pepper hair sitting at the lower end of Grand Cru busily sketching most Saturday afternoons, dressed in faded blue jeans, bumpy tweed sport coat, Irish country farmers vest, shirt and tie, is the loquacious Kevin O'Malley. The Belvedere Square bar is O'Malley's home away from home, living room or branch office-studio. He comes here to think, draw, laugh, pick up a few ideas while quaffing a few cold ones with his usual cadre of boon companions.

A Johns Hopkins University astrophysicist has won the 2011 Einstein Medal for his discovery of a mysterious force dubbed "dark energy" that is accelerating the expansion of the universe. Adam Riess, 41, will share the prize with Saul Perlmutter, of the University of California, Berkeley, whose team published similar results just after Riess' team. The prize has been awarded since 1979 by the Albert Einstein Society, in Bern, Switzerland, recognizing outstanding scientific work linked to Einstein's.

Rosamond Einstein, a homemaker, died Monday at the Gilchrist Hospice Care of complications of a fall she suffered earlier this month. She was 94 and lived in Towson. Born Rosamond Cecilia Dyer in Baltimore and raised on Bateman Avenue, she was the only child of real estate developer Frank Dyer. She was a 1935 graduate of St. Joseph's High School in Emmitsburg. She earned a bachelor of arts in history at the College of Notre Dame in 1939. She married Jacob Einstein Jr., a newspaper editor and radio station operator, in 1942.

IF ALBERT Einstein is the "Person of the 20th Century," as the editors of Time magazine believe, it might take all of the 21st century to grasp that the sum of his thinking went well beyond the intellectual parts of relativity, photons, subatomic particles and quarks. Science was Einstein's livelihood; pacifism was his life. Odd, then, even bizarre, that despite the ardency of Einstein's political and spiritual commitment to pacifism, the editors of Time in their December cover story on the person of the century devote 1,425 lines to his scientific ideas but only three to his views on nonviolence.

Jake Einstein is getting out of the radio biz again.The longtime guru of Maryland's alternative radio scene and former owner of both WHFS-FM (99.1) and WRNR-FM (103.1) is set to get rid of his last station, Annapolis' WNAV-AM (1430).In fact, Einstein already has leased the station to a company headed by TV personality and part-time Severna Park resident Pat Sajak, whose Sajak Broadcasting took over operation of the station Jan. 2. Einstein expects to complete negotiations to sell WNAV to the "Wheel of Fortune" host soon.
