It's that time of year when the world falls in love with a color. Typically deemed the "color of the year," the hue depends on whom you ask. For example, Sherwin-Williams has chosen a midcentury-tinged blue called "Aloe" as its top color. Benjamin Moore, meanwhile, chose Lemon Sorbet. But the juggernaut of color forecasting, Pantone, announced that emerald green will be the color of 2013. And so it shall be. We asked a local stylist to offer some quick ways that people can incorporate that color into their home decor: 1. Paint.

Two years after merging football and fashion with splashy new football uniforms, Under Armour and Maryland were at it again Thursday night. The Baltimore-based company unveiled the next iteration of its "Maryland Pride" uniforms, featuring a Maryland-flag-inspired red jersey it says will be impossible for opposing players to grab onto. The "no grab" technology was the highlight of the "Maryland Pride 2.0" uniform that debuted in a Harbor East ceremony that included Maryland band members and Ravens wide receiver and former Terps star Torrey Smith.

Call it rain-envy.While Floridians slosh about in their second tropical deluge this summer, farmers and firefighters on Maryland's parched Eastern Shore are wishing for even just a passing splash from a tropical storm.All of Maryland could use some serious rain, but parts of the Eastern Shore have had virtually none in the past 35 days. Late crops of soybeans are stunted, cornfields are wilting, and the state forest service is stamping out Eastern Shore brush fires at more than three times the normal August pace.

Baltimore City's schools are Maryland's oldest, and Baltimore County's are the second-oldest. The problems posed by the aging facilities in the two jurisdictions are different — the city has an overabundance of underused buildings, while the county has for years been dealing with overcrowding in one region or another — but the first step toward a solution, county schools officials hope, may be the same: developing a comprehensive modernization plan....

A friend called to talk. She was in agony. "I feel envy," she said. "I'm envious of someone with a nicer house." I listened. My friend has a very nice house, but I understood. I have felt enough envy to know its pain and the way that the shame of feeling it can silence us. I have envied people's clothes, cars, jobs and writing success. It's embarrassing; I have a nice life, but envy has little to do with having enough. In 1739, philosopher David Hume, wrote: "It is not a great disproportion between ourselves and others which produces envy, but on the contrary, a proximity.

As my wife will attest, I often suffer from futterneid. This is the term Germans use to describe the envy we feel when, for example, someone orders a better meal than ours. I'm also prone to schadenfreude, the tendency to take pleasure in the misfortune of others. So if I get the braised short ribs and you get stuck with the snail tartare, your futterneid will fuel my schadenfreude. Perhaps it's no coincidence the Germans have so many words for the chillingly petty emotions that run like cold streams through the human heart.

I GAZED AT ITS voluptuous form. I fantasized what it would be like to hold those graceful curves in my hands, to press that smooth flesh to my lips. I had a bad case of tomato envy. Somewhere it is written: "Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's tomatoes." I was breaking that commandment. I am not sure if grass always looks greener on the other side of the hill, but I am certain that tomatoes always look redder in the other guy's garden. Especially in mid-July, when tomato growers get antsy waiting for the crop to come in. I was up to my eyeballs in tomato envy the other day while inspecting my plot in the community garden in Druid Hill Park, comparing my tomatoes with those grown in other plots.

THE OLD SAYING is that size doesn't matter, but it does and everyone knows it does. Standing next to him on this hot Saturday afternoon, I felt painfully inadequate. His grill was one of those big, gleaming gas-burners, 27 knobs, a cooking surface the size of Wyoming, enough glass to qualify as a sun room, side trays, utensil racks, extra storage space, you name it. Mine was a puny little Weber. The black kettle type. Bells and whistles? Ha, that's a good one. The only extra mine had was an ash-catcher.

WEEKEND CARPENTERS and home-repair wannabees who aspire to convert basements to rec rooms, remodel kitchens or craft floor-to-ceiling entertainment centers were likely green with envy after seeing photos in The Sun for Anne Arundel last Friday of the playhouse Frank Martin built for his 5-year-old daughter, Lauren.Replete with amenities such as insulation, stained glass windows, a Dutch door, tile floor, window flower boxes and two electrical outlets, this is one dream of a playhouse.In building his daughter's miniature haven, the 37-year-old Mr. Martin may have been fulfilling his own childhood wish.

For a grown-up escape from everyday life, head to Envy Salon in Historic Ellicott City for Tini Tuesdays and Brew & Do Wednesdays. What started as a way to promote new business hours is now a highly anticipated weekly event at the 13-year-old salon. "We basically started it as something to drum up business on a new day of the week we were open, which was Tuesdays," says Leeza Rainey, owner of the salon. "So we started the martini night and found it was super-successful. " On Tuesdays, clients can enjoy a signature hot pink "Envy-tini," which Rainey describes as both sweet and tart.

A blizzard was expected to dump a couple of feet of snow across New England through midday today, and while Baltimore was largely spared, the storm delivered some wintry precipitation and headaches for travelers. At Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, dozens of flights to and from the Northeast were canceled, leaving some travelers scrambling to brave snowy roads in rental cars. Others landed there Friday from points north, escaping ahead of the expected 2 feet of snow, only to find limited options for getting anywhere else.

It is relaxed, yet very professional,” says Bokeno. “And we have found a good balance between befriending our clients and giving them high-quality service.” The three women have worked in other salons together throughout their careers, but opened Bella Amici in Bel Air in 2004.

Summertime is usually when TV networks air repeats of shows we've already seen. In his State of the Union Address this week, the president got a five-month jump on the summer season by re-running a class-envy video he has broadcast more times than local stations have shown episodes of "The Andy GriffithShow. " Instead of a credible assessment of the state of the union, which is not good, the president delivered a slightly toned-down campaign speech. We heard more of the same about how "the rich" aren't paying their "fair share" in taxes.

The nation's public schools have been battered by a continuing stream of bad news in the past few years, challenging what at one time was considered one of the world's leading education systems. In 2010, the results of international testing comparing students in 34 developed countries showed a stunning decline in U.S. test scores. The U.S. had sunk to the middle of the pack in reading and science and near the bottom in math. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said, "The hard truth is other countries have passed us by during the past two decades.

WASHINGTON - Oh, their lying, cheating hearts. They're really Redskins fans, these Washingtonians say, living for the day their team makes it back to the Super Bowl. But would it be so bad if they were to fall for another city on just one evening of one year at one game? We'll still love Washington in the morning, they insist, but can't we date Baltimore just this one Sunday night? "They're very lucky up there," Robert Moorman muses dreamily, gesturing toward Baltimore from the heart of Redskins territory, the Northern Virginia restaurant owned by former Washington quarterback Joe Theismann.

In 2008, I wrote a book called "Liberal Fascism. " That title came from H.G. Wells, one of the most important socialist writers in the English language. He believed, as did his fellow Fabian socialists, that Western democratic capitalism had outlived its usefulness. What was needed was a new, bold, forward-thinking system run by experts with access to the most modern techniques. For Wells, the label for such a system mattered less than the imperative that we implement a revolution-from-above.

For more than half my life I was a 99-percenter. I kept my first pay stubs in the news business to remind me where I came from and what was necessary in order to get where I am today. In 1975, while working at a TV station in Houston, I wrote a letter to a friend in Washington complaining about my stalled career and low salary. "I will probably die here with my boots on, boots bought on a revolving charge and not fully paid for," I griped. My memory is not that good. He kept the letter and showed it to me a few years ago. We laughed.
