With three nights of record ratings, NBC's coverage of the London Summer Olympics is winning on the prime-time TV front. But it looks to be losing in major ways in the world of social media, as a rising tide of complaints about the network's policy of tape-delaying major events - such as those involving Michael Phelps - appear on Twitter, accompanied by such hashtags as #nbcfail and #nbcdelayed. The disconnect between NBC's success on TV and failure in social media highlights not only the landmark transformation taking place in media these days, but also the radical change in audience expectations and behavior, analysts say. Like many media companies, NBC has tried to lure viewers to its digital platforms with promises of providing information 24/7, whenever the consumer wants it. But now, the network is feeling the heat in social media for not feeding the very on-demand appetite it helped create “This kind of reaction to tape delay in Olympics coverage has always been there.

It would be improbable for me to dislike a book by Salman Rushdie. He has written seven previous novels, a collection of short fiction and four nonfiction books. I have read much of that, and he has yet to fail me. He goes on growing - on me, at least. Now comes Fury (Random House, 259 pages, $24.95). It's remarkably short, concise, in contrast to his superb and sprawling The Moor's Last Sigh (1996, 434 pages) and The Ground Beneath Her Feet (1999, 575 pages). Rushdie narrates Fury in a voice that is cosmopolitan, confiding and casual.

A proverb from the ancient sewer of male fear insists that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. "Lorenzo's Oil" is a virtual blueprint of that proposition, except that the woman in question has been scorned not by a man but by a gene.It's the heroic story of two parents -- but especially the mother -- who watch in horror as their very special son is shriveled by a genetic disorder for which there appears to be no cure; they in turn are scorned by a medical profession that offers only platitudes about fate and the squishy tread of business as usual.

Some say the world will end in fire, and some say ice. I say they're both wrong. It ended in "Pink Flamingos" 25 years ago.We just haven't noticed that we're dead yet, that's all.But here it is all over again, with that message underscored. A raunchy, all-out attack on everything that's holy except the church, it's the pie in your face from hell.The story behind the story has been retold many times: how he borrowed $12,000 from dad, how cold it was during the cannibal orgy scene, how the dog didn't cooperate.

LAS VEGAS - The morning after Mike Tyson stopped Frank Bruno in less than seven minutes to claim the World Boxing Council heavyweight crown on Saturday night, the real question was not "Who's next?" but "Why would anyone want to test Tyson?" The usual suspects are World Boxing Association champion Bruce Seldon; Francois Botha, who holds the International Boxing Federation belt and is even less mobile than Bruno; and ex-WBC king Lennox Lewis of Canada, who had been knocked out in short order by journeyman Oliver McCall.

RAWALPINDI, Pakistan-- --The assassination of Benazir Bhutto, the charismatic opposition leader who had promised to restore democracy in Pakistan, set off a nationwide wave of grief and fury and raised the specter of violent unrest that could threaten the government of U.S.-backed President Pervez Musharraf. At least 20 other people died in yesterday's assault just outside the main gates of a Rawalpindi park where Pakistan's first prime minister was assassinated in 1951. Bhutto's white SUV was hit by close-range gunfire, then rocked by a powerful explosion set off by a suicide attacker.

NEW YORK -- Leave it to loquacious promoter Don King to borrow from Shakespeare and William Faulkner in dubbing the Evander Holyfield-Mike Tyson heavyweight championship rematch "The Sound and the Fury."But the sound level at the news conference yesterday to promote the May 3 bout in Las Vegas was significantly lower than before their first encounter last fall. At that time, Team Tyson did everything in its power to intimidate Holyfield.Tyson's co-manager, John Horne, disparaged Holyfield for purportedly saying he would never fight a convicted rapist, a quote the challenger denied making while Tyson was serving a three-year jail sentence in Indiana.

As violent protests continued in Afghanistan over the burning of copies of the Muslim holy book by NATO forces, the Pentagon confirmed Monday that a Maryland National Guard major was one of two U.S. military officers shot to death inside a ministry building in the heart of the Afghan capital over the weekend. Maj. Robert J. Marchanti II, 48, a longtime physical-education teacher in the Baltimore County public schools, had been working since September as a mentor to the Afghan National Police, part of the NATO partnering mission at the center of U.S. strategy in the country.

If this past week was not a wake-up call to make sure you are financially prepared to survive a natural disaster, what is? Marylanders barely had time to get over the earthquake last Tuesday before they had to brace for Hurricane Irene over the weekend. While we survived these disasters relatively unscathed, that might not be the case next time. So before nature strikes again, make sure you have the necessary insurance coverage and your papers in order. After all, hurricane season lasts through the end of November, and nature could throw us another curveball.

The woman wailed outside the ruins of Cathedrale de Notre-Dame de Port-au-Prince, the Roman Catholic cathedral that symbolized Haiti's religious fervor. "This is what God did!" she cried Friday morning. "See what God can do!" Tuesday's earthquake brought down the roof of the enormous pink-and-cream cathedral, filling the apse and nave with tons of rubble. The quake punched out its vivid stained-glass windows, twisted its wrought-iron fencing and sliced brick walls like cake. The western steeple, which had soared more than 100 feet in the sky, toppled onto parishioners praying at an outdoor shrine to St. Emmanuel.

We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore. I am talking about me and my new best friends - the "near-retired." Our confusion over the mechanics of the Wall Street meltdown has been replaced with naked fury at the bankers who stole all our money and the politicians who drove the getaway car. "Call me cynical and vengeful, but why isn't somebody going to jail over this?" wrote one reader on a New York Times message board. "How can anyone trust this bunch of thieves?" wrote another.

MONTERRY, Mexico - David Bascome scored two goals to help the Blast defeat the Monterrey Fury, 8-5, last night and extend its winning streak in the Major Indoor Soccer League to six games. Blast goalkeeper Scott Hileman was part of the highlights for the offense as he scored a late goal to help clinch the victory. Chile Farias and P.J. Wakefield got the first two goals of the game, but the Fury came back to get the next two to leave the game tied at the end of the first quarter. Denison Cabral and Bascome added goals in the second quarter to put the Blast ahead 4-3 at halftime.

GERMANTOWN - The Bethesda Fury under-18 girls soccer team didn't waste a minute - literally - in its quest for an unprecedented ninth straight Maryland Cup state championship yesterday. Kelly Hammond, a senior at St. Mary's who will play at the University of Virginia in the fall, scored in the first 10 seconds against the Arundel Wildcats to get things started and by the time things were done, the Fury had a 9-0 win. The Fury's strong performance closed out a busy afternoon of state-play soccer at the Maryland SoccerPlex, the site of the 2002 Snickers U.S. Youth National Championships on July 24-28.

Mayor Sheila Dixon lashed out at prosecutors and reporters yesterday in her first comments since acknowledging having a personal relationship with a developer at the same time that she voted on contracts that benefited his company. In a combative news conference outside City Hall, Dixon vowed "to survive this" and accused the state prosecutor's office of leaking information to the news media that she cannot respond to without harming her own case. Her comments came in conjunction with a push by allies to express public support for the embattled mayor.

It was time for the guys of Linkin Park to grow up. In the early part of the decade, they sold millions of albums scorching with angst-ridden songs of tormented love and alienation. It was music -- a fusion of buzzing metal and swaggering hip-hop -- that appealed mostly to teens and college freshmen. But on Minutes to Midnight, Linkin Park's latest album and first release in four years, the Los Angeles sextet largely trades fury for melody. If you go Linkin Park performs at 7 p.m. Tuesday at 1st Mariner Arena, 201 W. Baltimore St. Tickets are $38.50-$54.
