This summer, 10-year-old Jared Cole-Lewis has a rare luxury: daily computer time at school. Jared and his classmates are editing an action movie they scripted and videotaped as part of the Black Student Achievement Program's Summer Bridge program. Despite the name, Summer Bridge seeks to do more than fill the gap between mid-June and late August for its students. "We're trying to accelerate them," said Ron Morris, assistant principal of Bellows Spring Elementary and one of two administrators on site at Wilde Lake High.

In the race between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, it is instructive to watch how each candidate for president behaves when the subject of Israel is mentioned. Every four years, citizens running for the highest office in this country feel duty-bound to show off their inexhaustible support for Israel, attempting to persuade the Israelis how, if elected, their approach toward Iran will increase pressure on the Islamic state. Mr. Romney stated on his recent visit to Israel that preventing Iran from obtaining nuclear capability should be America's "highest national security priority," stressing that "no option should be excluded" in the effort.

WASHINGTON - The United States will demand next week that North Korea agree to dismantle all its nuclear weapons and development programs - including a uranium enrichment program that Pakistan is believed to have supplied in recent years - as a prerequisite for any assistance, a Bush administration official said yesterday. But in a briefing in advance of negotiations with North Korea in Beijing next week, the administration official said he would not specify whether any commitment to dismantle the uranium enrichment program, along with other weapons programs, had to be explicit, or whether the administration would settle for a more vaguely worded commitment from North Korea.

TAKEN TOGETHER, the 9/11 commission report and the recent Senate Intelligence Committee report on Iraq teach us how incomplete intelligence can lead us to exaggerate some threats and miss others. This suggests that where the mists of uncertainty part to reveal an unambiguous threat to our national security, we must confront it squarely. We now face such an unambiguous threat from North Korea. How do we know? Because we have lost track of five to six atomic bombs' worth of plutonium there.

VIENNA, Austria - The board of the United Nations nuclear watchdog agency reappointed Mohamed ElBaradei to a third term as director general yesterday in a move that was widely anticipated after the United States dropped its opposition to him last week. ElBaradei, 62, was chosen by acclamation to continue his leadership of the International Atomic Energy Agency by the agency's 35-member Board of Governors, according to a spokeswoman. In comments to reporters after his reappointment, the one-time Egyptian diplomat underscored that he was not ready to end the agency's two-year probe of Iran's atomic energy program, which U.S. officials insist is a cover for nuclear weapons development.

TEL AVIV, Israel -- The top U.S. military officer attempted to reassure Israeli defense leaders yesterday that the United States still views Iran as a serious threat to the Jewish state, even as the Israelis disagree with an American intelligence finding that Iran ceased its nuclear weapons program in 2003. Adm. Michael G. Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, discussed the National Intelligence Estimate of Iran's nuclear program with the head of Israel's military and Defense Minister Ehud Barak in back-to-back meetings here, where the report has provoked widespread debate over U.S. intentions.

Harford County's school board approved a $195.9 million operating budget last night for the next school year -- a bare-bones plan that does little more than maintain current class sizes and add enough teachers for an expected 1,000 new students.The spending plan, which now goes to County Executive Eileen M. Rehrmann and the County Council, represents a 5.8 percent increase over the current $185 million budget -- the smallest increase in at least 25 years.The 1996-1997 budget, which was approved unanimously, includes about $3.6 million for a 3 percent across-the-board raise for the system's 2,400 teachers.

WASHINGTON -- President Bush and his aides spent a second day trying to keep pressure on Iran, with the White House saying yesterday that the disclosure that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 would not affect conditions for opening negotiations with the Islamic republic. As Monday's report by the 16 U.S. intelligence agencies continued to reverberate, raising doubts about the U.S. push to punish Iran, Bush consulted with top advisers on their talks with counterparts from Britain, Germany, France and Russia.

No tally of how many millions of copies of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows have sold in the time it took to read this sentence. And nothing about unbearably cute children who haven't slept since Friday, when they got in line at the Barnes and Borders a Million to get their copy and have been reading nonstop ever since -- pausing only to e-whine about the newspaper meanies who spoiled EVERYTHING by printing early reviews of the book.

WASHINGTON -- The Bush administration said yesterday that Iran's response to international efforts to restrain its nuclear program fell short of a U.N. Security Council demand that Tehran suspend its uranium enrichment activities by Aug. 31. But U.S. officials declined to say whether that meant it would push for economic sanctions against Iran at the United Nations next week. The administration's refusal to immediately call for sanctions marked a change in tone from signals sent by American officials before Iran issued a 21-page counteroffer Tuesday.

TEHRAN, Iran -- Iran's president has rejected the latest offer from Europe to halt uranium enrichment in exchange for incentives, including a light-water reactor, likening the proposal to an adult's deceptive enticement to a naive child. "Your incentives are definitely not more valuable than nuclear technology," President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said yesterday during a speech in the central city of Arak. "How dare you tell our people to give up its gold in return for chocolate?" In his speech, reported by the news agency ISNA, he also said: "I declare that our people do not need your assistance for development.
