HEALTH
By Meredith Cohn, The Baltimore Sun | September 3, 2014
Antibiotics have saved countless lives over the years, but their overuse has lead to problems including antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Dr. Mary R. Clance, an epidemiologist at Anne Arundel Medical Center, discusses the history, troubles and appropriate uses of the drugs. How have antibiotics contributed to public health since their discovery and what is their status now? The collective memory of death from infectious disease is short-lived. Death from pneumonia, puerperal fever, post-operative infection, urinary and skin infections were commonplace just two generations ago. Pneumonia was the leading cause of death at the beginning of the 20th century.

Leonard Sachs and Lainy LeBow-Sachs have turned their world outside-in. The renovations and additions to the Baltimore power couple's Reisterstown home make it ideal not only for entertaining large groups, but for entertaining birds, too. Fond of plants and flowering shrubs as well, Leonard commissioned a solarium that defies Mid-Atlantic winters. And the flagstone that was once the exterior of the house is now part of the study and den and informal dining area, giving the house a rustic, masculine quality.

Even after some 30 years of reviewing wines, there's something new to learn. Falanghina, a white wine varietal I had not encountered before, comes from the slopes of Mount Vesuvius and dates to ancient times. This version is exceptionally complex and elegant, dry almost to the point of being severe. There are hints of nuts, apple, pear and orange zest — along with a delicate hint of pine resin. Among Italian whites, it's a standout. From: Taburno, Campania, Italy Price: $20 Serve with: Salmon, swordfish

WASHINGTON — The Smithsonian Institution's Dinosaur Hall is filled with the skeletons of magnificent giants, collected from around the world by professional paleontologists. But the museum's first-ever exhibition of dinosaur fossils from the museum's own "backyard" would not have been possible without the contributions of local amateurs. And amateurs — including kids like 9-year-old Gabrielle Block, of Annandale, Va., who found a dinosaur tailbone during a visit to Maryland's Dinosaur Park last fall — are still discovering bits and pieces from the Cretaceous Period, and adding to scientists' understanding of that ancient world.

Overall, McDonogh won its seventh consecutive A Conference title with 467 points, well ahead of second-place Notre Dame Prep (349)

You join the Navy to see the world and then one night you end up in Baltimore, wrestling with this strange supper called Maryland crabs. That is my interpretation of what was going through the minds of some of the sailors on the USS Sterett the other night as they sat down to a crab feast in Locust Point. The ship was in town for the ceremony commissioning the guided missile destroyer named after Baltimore native Andrew Sterett. A group of local businessmen put on a dockside feed for the crew, complete with burgers, ribs and, of course, steamed crabs and crab soup.
