Was it Big Kahuna? That's just a guess after seeing a video of a shark circling a boat off the coast of Ocean City that was posted online by University of Maryland student Aaron Caplan. Caplan, 19, said he was shark fishing with friends on July 30 about 5-6 miles off shore when a great white shark became curious about his boat. He estimated the shark was about 13-15 feet - a wee bit smaller than his 24-foot fishing boat. "It got close enough that we identified it as a great white," he said in a phone interview Thursday, adding that he never expected to attract anything that big. "We actually got to pet it one of the times when it rubbed against the boat.

BOONSBORO -- In three months on the Appalachian Trail, Jim Parkins has met a federal judge, a doctor, countless Boy Scouts, marijuana-smoking college graduates, and a married couple who celebrate their anniversary each year by feeding hikers for a week. "People who would never talk to each other in the world get along great," said Parkins, a 53-year-old resident of Derby, Conn., as he rested his legs and smoked a cigarette near Annapolis Rock, a popular landmark with a spectacular view of the Cumberland Valley.

BROOKVILLE, N.Y. - Have you noticed? People rarely ask for directions anymore. I'm at a red light this morning and a guy in the lane to my left toots his horn to get my attention. "Where's the turnpike?" he shouts. I tell him to make a right and follow me to the off-ramp, a couple of yards out of my way. As I scoot back across traffic, I happen upon a car with a Kalamazoo sticker in its window. The driver (I can't believe it!) is a former schoolmate. It turns out that she's attending a seminar at the university where I work.

We don't have to put all the food away, do we?" Those were my husband's famous words, but fortunately, not his famous last words. In late August, our family embarked on its first full-fledged camping expedition to Virginia's Shenandoah National Park. We pitched our borrowed tent in the sprawling Big Meadows Area campground, aware that bears were a common sight around the park, but not truly expecting to see one. Park literature, however, is explicit about storing food in car trunks to prevent bears from rifling coolers and packs.

The movie "Jaws" was released 39 years ago this month so by now we're certain it's more than safe to go back in the water. Or is it? Over the weekend, a fisherman off the coast of Cape May, N.J., had a semi-pleasant (no one died) encounter with a great white shark that came snooping near the man's 35-foot boat. The 16-foot shark hung around about 20 minutes, according to Steve Clark, the vessel's owner, and didn't leave without getting a taste of a bait bag filled with chum that was hanging from the boat.

It's not as messy as the rollout of President Barack Obama's health care plan, but his My Brother's Keeper initiative for black and Latino boys and young men has created a firestorm of debate among people who have largely been supportive of his presidency. But why should we have expected anything less from a bold, if not perfectly targeted, effort to address the fact that, as he noted, "the group that is facing some of the most severe challenges in the 21st century are boys and young men of color"?

"Brief Encounter," David Lean's 1945 movie based on a Noel Coward play about a thwarted romance, has long been spoken of with great reverence and routinely accorded four-star status. Personally, I'd shave off a half a star, if only because the soundtrack is so overstuffed with Rachmaninoff's surging, sighing Piano Concerto No. 2. Still, count me among those who treasure the film. Count me, too, among those who find much to savor in the theatrical version of "Brief Encounter," created by the U.K.-based troupe called Kneehigh in 2008.

The Rawlings-Blake administration's efforts to slash Baltimore's long-term deficit has run into a bump - more than $100 million in new police, education and other expenses now expected over the next decade. The school system is billing the city for more students than expected - at a cost of several million dollars a year. The enrollment figures are wrong, school and city officials agree, but under state law, the city still has to pay a bill that could come to $43 million. Settlements of lawsuits against the Police Department and increased landfill costs are among other expenses that were not anticipated in the fiscal plan.

A Naval Academy midshipman once accused of sexual assault testified for the first time in open court Tuesday, telling a military judge that when he got into a car with a female classmate outside a 2012 off-campus party, he didn't think she was too drunk to know what she was doing. Midshipman Eric Graham said the alleged victim might have smelled of alcohol, but was talking and moving around on the night of a party that resulted in accusations of sexual assault against Graham and two others.

After making the drive, the girls end up at the motel alone. After they find a shirt and a few other things that suggest Ali could have once been there, a message appears behind the door: “You're too late.”  Thanks for the update, A.

Werner Herzog is a magnet for obsessives, and his lovely new film, Encounters at the End of the World, takes you places an ordinary documentary filmmaker might've gone to yet missed completely. At the invitation of the National Science Foundation, Herzog traveled to McMurdo Station in Antarctica, a U.S.-run enclave of 1,100 men and women who study the physical environment. We spend time with ecologists, biologists and survival-school instructors who teach people how not to get lost in a blinding snowstorm.
