A plant shot up about 6 feet in our yard recently. I never saw flowers, but the seeds remind me of ragweed. The leaf is not lacy like ragweed, though. It looks more like a stork footprint. What am I dealing with? There is a bumper crop of ragweed this year, and you have a species known as giant ragweed (Ambrosia trifida), as opposed to common ragweed (Ambrosia artemissiifolia). Unfortunately, giant ragweed pollen causes highly allergic reactions, just like the more familiar species.

The cruise out of Baltimore to the eastern Caribbean included a stop in Puerto Rico. Good news: Our side trip was to the rain forest in the center of the island. Bad news: The tour bus broke down just beyond the visitors' center. Having hiked the last mile to the center of the island, we faced a wait until a relief bus would arrive. My philosophy with a camera has always been to look up, look down and look under for unique shots. This photo, backlit by the sun, is of a leaf from one of the rain forest's hundreds of ferns.

There was a multitude of criticism of Fox News' Bill O'Reilly for his disrespecting the "office" of the president when he attempted to get answers from President Obama during his brief Super Bowl interview. The media castigated Mr. O'Reilly for repeatedly interrupting Mr. Obama when the president tried to evade the issue he was asked about and move on to the next question. But there is no media outrage for any form of disrespect for the president's treatment during his recent comedy show appearance ( "When Zach met Barack; pitching Obamacare online," March 11)

A gorgeous pink flower that looks like a lily is emerging in spots around my yard. The flowers have long stems 2 to 3 feet tall but no leaves. Did someone plant this, or did it just grow naturally? This is our first year in this house. Those are naked ladies, or belladonna lilies, common names for Amaryllis belladonna, a popular and easy-to-grow bulb. The strappy leaves previously came up in spring and then died back, about the same time as daffodil leaaves die. The flower stalk appears separately in late summer.

Dr. Marl?s Gonz?lez-Fern?ndez, assistant professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and the medical director of the outpatient physical medicine and rehabilitation clinics at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, has some advice for back pain prevention: Maintaining good physical fitness is the best way to reduce the possibility of injury.
