Even without opening the box, one can guess that the new Apple color scanner is not flawless. If it were, someone at Apple Computer Inc. might have used it to scan in a bunch of $20s and $50s (the new $100 bills are harder to counterfeit) and then send them to a color laser printer to help offset the company's financial losses.Wait! Only kidding. It is illegal for anyone but the government and certain Internet start-up companies to manufacture money.But the new scanner, formally named the Apple Color One Scanner 600/27, is good enough to inspire such thoughts.

The Salisbury women's lacrosse team fell one game short of a perfect season, losing to Trinity (Conn.), 8-7, in the NCAA Division III championship game Sunday afternoon in Montclair, N.J. In addition to seeking the school's second national title, the Sea Gulls were trying to become the first team in the program's 40-year history to finish a season undefeated. Salisbury (22-1) got off to its slowest start this season, not scoring until the second half. The first half was the only period this season where the Sea Gulls were held without a goal.

Funny. A kitchen that can turn out flawless scallops falters on rice pilaf, serving tasteless, dry kernels not as flavorful as most packaged rice mixes.Funny. A kitchen that can produce succulent veal in a beautiful bearnaise trips over a baked potato, serving a shriveled spud that stayed too long at the steam table.Funny, isn't it?But that's what we found at a recent meal at Cacao Lane in Ellicott City. The hard stuff came off without a hitch, but the seemingly simple side dishes didn't make it. Perhaps someone wasn't paying attention.

Chespapeake-Anne Arundel's Megan Hyson was one pitch away from a perfect game in Tuesday's Class 4A state semifinals when Montgomery Blair's Emily Haislip drew a walk. Hyson briefly walked off the mound, collected herself and struck out the next batter, earning a no-hitter in the top-ranked Cougars' 8-0 victory. Hyson also went 4-for-4 with a home run, setting up a showdown against undefeated Urbana in Saturday's state championship at Maryland. "It was close, that's all you can ask for. A no-hitter was good enough," said Hyson, who will play at Georgetown next season.

They're everywhere - dangling from cliffs, at the neighbor's wedding, even undersea - and they're all looking for the same, elusive thing. "We're always trying to achieve some sense of perfection," says Paul Marycz, 50, of Columbia. "But there's always something to be improved upon; we're never completely comfortable with our work." They're photographers, their products are pictures and their jobs are a lot more difficult than the point and click that people might think. In search of that flawless image, Marycz has scaled Arizona canyons, muscled his way through car-racing fans (carrying more than 20 pounds of photography equipment)

We have all seen women with skin so smooth in tone and texture that they appear to have walked right off a magazine cover. Their skin looks flawless and holds the perfect blend of color and glow without looking oily. But such women are not all born with great skin. Skin and cosmetics experts say the flawless look is possible for most everyone.

After executing a nearly flawless landing early yesterday morning, Opportunity, the latest NASA rover to arrive on Mars, began sending back stunning images of an otherworldly landscape the likes of which scientists said they had never seen on the planet. "I am flabbergasted. I'm astonished. I'm blown away," a bleary-eyed Steve Squyres, the mission's science chief, said at an early morning news conference in California. "I always knew if we went to enough places on Mars we would find something that's truly different."

It's interesting to see how restaurants handle annoying customers. In this case, me. Four of us are at Chiapparelli's -- a Little Italy landmark -- and we've been led to a table next to the waitress station and the kitchen door. To get me to sit down at this table they're going to have to use a grappling hook. The hostess has disappeared, so I ask the waitress if we can sit at one of the empty tables farther away. She explains that each of them is set for six people, and what are they going to do if a larger party comes in?

Virginia Mayo, whose honey blond hair and creamy, flawless face had made her ideal for the Technicolor musicals, westerns and adventures so popular in the 1940s and 1950s, died Monday in Thousand Oaks, Calif. She was 84. Rising from chorus girl to film star almost overnight, she went on to appear opposite many of the most popular actors of her time. Although many of her films were escapist fare, she landed two solid dramatic roles - in 1946's The Best Years of Our Lives and 1949's White Heat.

Live Arts Maryland delivered four splendid performances of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "The Sound of Music," this month, telling anew the story of the Austrian singing von Trapp family to justifiably enthusiastic applause and extended standing ovations. Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts in Annapolis was filled to near capacity for four performances just before Valentine's Day, and the standing ovations were "deafening," says Performing Arts Association of Linthicum President Jo Barker.

ATLANTA — The postseason began a week early for the Packers, who needed a victory in the regular-season finale over the Bears just to make the playoffs. Now, with the hot hand of quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the best secondary in the postseason, they're one victory away from reaching Super Bowl XLV. It's a remarkable story for a team that placed 15 players on injured reserve this season and had 13 starters miss time because of injuries. The sixth-seeded Packers advanced to next Sunday's NFC championship game with an 48-21 demolition of the Falcons on Saturday.

It began on the steps of the Connecticut state Capitol on a cold April day last season with Geno just being Geno. The parade celebrating UConn's sixth title had just ended. The Huskies coach stepped to a microphone. "I don't know how we're going to be able to go 39-0 next year," said Geno Auriemma, the Connecticut coach. "The only reason I say that is, if we win every game we play next year we'll be 40-0." Your first thought: He must be joking. Your second thought: Maybe he's not. You know how basketball is?

Chris Tillman pitched two perfect innings, Garrett Atkins had two hits and Adam Jones connected for an opposite-field home run in the Orioles' 5-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night before 4,187 at Ed Smith Stadium. With the Orioles leading 3-2 with two outs in the eighth, Troy Patton allowed a game-tying solo homer to Pirates catching prospect Tony Sanchez. The Pirates then broke the tie with two runs in the ninth off Alfredo Simon as Delwyn Young had an RBI single and Jose Tabata plated an insurance run with a sacrifice fly. Tillman struck out three and threw 22 of his 33 pitches for strikes, showing no signs of the back soreness that bothered him earlier in spring training.

The nerves officially left Matt Albers when he made the jog down the orange carpet during pre-game introductions on Opening Day. By the time bullpen coach Alan Dunn told him to start getting loose, Albers was more than ready to make his Orioles debut Monday. And it showed as he relieved an ineffective Jeremy Guthrie and threw 2 2/3 perfect innings, providing one of the few highlights in the Orioles' 6-2 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. After an off day yesterday, the series resumes tonight.

COLLEGE PARK -- Gary Williams will turn 63 today, but forgive the Maryland coach if he's in no mood to celebrate. What could have been an early birthday present from his team was tossed away in the last 11 minutes of a damaging 73-70 defeat to Clemson on Sunday night at Comcast Center. The day after Maryland blew a 20-point lead to the Tigers and, perhaps, a spot in this year's NCAA tournament, Williams said it was going to be difficult - though not impossible - for the Terps to rebound from what was one of the most crushing losses of his 30-season coaching career, the past 19 spent at his alma mater.

Nathan Milstein, the Russian-born violin virtuoso, died of a heart attack Monday at his home in London at age 88.To many, Mr. Milstein -- the last surviving pupil of Leopold Auer, considered the 20th century's pre-eminent teacher of violin -- was the greatest of all exponents of the 19th-century violin repertory.From the beginning, his playing was described as "flawless," "aristocratic" and "elegant." A supreme technician, he nevertheless refrained from flaunting his extraordinary bow and finger dexterity.
