From Inside Lacrosse magazine | April 17, 2014
If the 100th meeting between the Syracuse and Hobart men's lacrosse teams is anything like the 99th or the 98th, the No. 4 Orange will face a firestorm of emotion at 3 p.m. Saturday in Geneva, N.Y. The Statesmen are 4-7 in Greg Raymond's inaugural season as head coach, thanks in large part to the loss of senior star attackman Alex Love to an abdominal muscle problem and a host of other key injuries and suspensions. On paper, it's certainly a one-sided affair. "When you look at the Hobart-Syracuse game, I think you can throw the records right out the window because it's always been a very competitive game," Syracuse coach John Desko said.

Nothing better illustrates today's vast changes in electronics and entertainment than the mega-merger of Disney and ABC. The $19 billion acquisition of Capital Cities/ABC by the Walt Disney Co. is revolutionary in terms of pop culture and home entertainment. In retrospect it should not have been a surprise, because its attractions are so obvious. Strategically, the two giants are a perfect fit: They complement each other with little duplication. Mergers like this are a tycoon's dream.But is this a dream or nightmare for everyone else?

It's hard to exaggerate just how much of an accomplishment it was for the Harford Tech girls soccer team to beat C. Milton Wright two weeks ago to win the Upper Chesapeake Bay Athletic Conference championship. Most definitely both teams were evenly matched insofar as they were both made up of high school girls from Harford County, but numbers of players never tell the whole story when it comes to athletic success. That's why, despite having the same salary caps and same size rosters, some NFL teams are good year in and year out, while others seem to struggle through each season.

SBC Communications Inc., the West's dominant local telephone company, is expected to announce today that it is acquiring the Ameritech Corp. for about $60 billion in stock, people close to the talks said. The deal would re-create much of the old Bell system.The proposed deal is the latest in a string of corporate blockbusters. In size, it is the second-largest in corporate history, exceeding the BankAmerica-Nationsbank merger announced last month, and trailing only the $70 billion deal in March between Citicorp and the Travelers Group.

The contest between two area development firms vying to see which would win the right to build a multimillion-dollar marine research center in the Inner Harbor has come to a biblical conclusion.After weeks in which it seemed only an act of Solomon would end the deliberations over whether the Rouse Co. or the smaller Manekin Corp. would win the lucrative contract, the nine members of the Christopher Columbus Development Inc. voted last night to pick Rouse.The selection means the Rouse will take over development and ultimately management of the $164 million Christopher Columbus Center for Marine Research and Exploration.

Friday Getting the lowdown on the U.S.' increasingly desperate financial straits may not seem an appropriately celebratory way to kick off the first full day of 2008 festival-going. But Patrick Creadon's I.O.U.S.A. (11:30 a.m., Charles Theatre 1) offers a lucid and surprisingly engaging primer on what it means when economists talk about the country being several trillion dollars in debt, employing everything from roller-coaster-inspired graphics to clips of Saturday Night Live in the process.

If there is one cliche we never seem to tire of in sports, it's the biblical story of David vs. Goliath (1 Samuel 17) that writers and broadcasters use to help explain an upset. Never mind that it is the intellectual equivalent of beginning a novel with the words, "It was a dark and stormy night." Each year, when a tiny team pulls off a major upset - claiming, more often than not, that it was motivated by disrespect or even outright dismissal - the news wires and airwaves are littered with references to the story of David, the future king of Israel, slaying Goliath, the champion of the Philistines, with a single stone.

LUKE, Md. -- China is 7,000 miles away from this speck of a town in the mountains, half a world away. But as a looming economic threat, the country has never seemed so stiflingly close. The paper mill here that employs 950 is feeling the pressure of cheaper Chinese imports. On New Year's Eve, it shut down one of its three huge manufacturing machines and cut 130 jobs, touching off rumors across the tri-state region where employees live that it was only a matter of time before the plant closed.

WASHINGTON -- Since its parliamentary victory in the West Bank and Gaza last week, the militant Islamic organization Hamas seems to expect that the international community will provide it with diplomatic support and hundreds of millions of dollars in aid without requiring any change in its commitment to Israel's destruction. Hamas, or the Islamic Resistance Movement, judging from its statements, understands that if it can win international support for business as usual, this will mean success in its strategy to sharply lower the bar and allow its extreme ideas to gradually enter the mainstream of civilized discourse.

2004 Rex Goliath "Free Range" Chardonnay ($10). California chardonnay is not my favorite category, but credit has to go to Hahn Estates for creating a value-priced wine of admirable quality. Chief among its virtues is that the winemaker has let the fruit speak for itself without a heavy-handed overlay of oak. The wine offers clean, crisp flavors of lemon, apple and pear - with a subtle infusion of vanilla. Nobody will mistake it for Batard-Montrachet, but its intensity, length and complexity are good for its price.

Two beloved animated figures from the 1960s and 1970s - a good-natured but clueless boy and his drawling dog - are returning to national television. Davey and Goliath's Snowboard Christmas will air on the Hallmark Channel at noon Sunday and Dec. 26. The original stop-action Sunday-morning series, developed and owned by the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, was designed to teach values to children in 15-minute segments. In the first new cartoon in 30 years, Davey and Goliath takes an ecumenical turn, with the introduction of a Jewish boy and a Muslim girl to the cast.
