It's hard to be too critical of any NFL telecast that delivers the kind of images CBS did Sunday following Jacoby Jones' touchdown catch that put the Ravens up 19-3 over the New York Jets. The money shot with five seconds left in the third quarter was a close-up on the face of Ed Reed, the Jets safety who was beaten on the play. Reed, the former Raven who is considered by many to be the best safety ever, was sitting on the bench looking toward the field with a pained expression on his face.

Dirty, used oil promises to bring some badly needed jobs to Baltimore, one recycling company says. But energy-saving light fixtures aren't proving to be the growth business that another company thought they were — at least not yet. FCC Environmental, a Houston-based company, recently announced plans to build a $50 million plant in Fairfield to recycle used motor oil, hiring 30 people to reclaim a waste normally burned in industrial boilers....

The first incarnation of Kader Camara's Cafe Mocha was a small shop on Howard Street's Antique Row. There, customers had the joy of discovery. Maybe they would come in for an investigatory cup of cappuccino and a pastry and leave with some of Camara's healthful cafe fare. Before long, Camara's food, especially his sandwiches, many of them sprinkled with North African or Caribbean influences, developed a good reputation. Last fall, Camara, a native of Guinea, moved Cafe Mocha into the renovated Railway Express building.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Matt Stover set the NFL record for most consecutive point-after touchdowns, but that's not what will be remembered from yesterday's 30-10 loss to the New York Giants. His 32-yard field goal attempt was blocked by defensive tackle Fred Robbins, ricocheting off the low part of his arm. The ball was recovered at the Ravens' 33-yard line, which set up the Giants' second touchdown that extended their lead to 13-0. The wind at Giants Stadium - which was listed at 17 miles per hour at kickoff - played a part in the blocked kick.

I didn't necessarily make resolutions for 2006. I didn't curl up with a pen and a journal, reflecting on the last 365 days of my life while jotting down promises I know I'm not gonna keep. I just woke up the morning after a nice New Year's Eve party (slightly hung over, of course) and started doing different stuff. Like tidying up my apartment, something I seemingly never did last year. And two weeks ago, I started visiting the fitness room at my apartment complex. There's this big, nifty thing I've been using in there called the treadmill.

It's hard to believe it has been just six years since Marshall Mathers, a blond, unassuming, Detroit-bred rapper with a killer flow, stormed into pop. Known to the world as Eminem, he seems to have been around much longer, upsetting conservative media pundits, homosexual activists, black women and George W. Bush. His whiny tone and razor lyrical dexterity, his weird sense of humor and Dr. Dre's innovative beats have pushed his record sales past 65 million. He owns three Grammys. In less than 10 years, Eminem has become perhaps the most successful artist in hip-hop.

"Carmina Burana," Carl Orff's marvelously varied setting of racy medieval poems celebrating fortune's fickle role in human affairs, is one of the most demanding works of the entire choral canon. Only superb soloists will do, for Fortuna's path through the tavern, the coming of spring and the intimate chambers of courtly love are marked by virtuosic arias at every turn. Orff's treatment of these Old Latin, German and French texts is extraordinarily colorful, so the orchestra must play with immense style and verve.

It's nice to see Annapolis, best known for its Colonial charm, getting a little funky -- at least as far as restaurants are concerned. First it was Tsunami, an Asian fusion grill. Then recently Aqua Terra opened, specializing in contemporary American cuisine. Think of it as surf and turf for the hip. The storefront dining room has the sleek, minimalist look typical of the breed, in this case quite soothing in understated shades of gray. Blond wood furniture warms things up. The open kitchen is the focus of the room, with a handsome granite counter under a row of blue teardrop hanging lamps.

To modern eyes, the battle scenes in "The Patriot" look pretty ludicrous, with columns of marching soldiers advancing upon one another across open fields. Why, one good strafing run, and all those soldiers are toast. But there was no such thing as a strafing run in the 18th century, when the American Revolution was fought. And, as suicidal as such formations may look today, they were far less so 200 years ago. What you see on screen, it seems, is pretty much what you would have seen on the day of the battle itself.

We've hit that point in the television year when midseason tryouts come one after another. If you've been watching the networks' breathless on-air promotion for the premieres of their new series, it's hard to know which "major television event of the year" you can't afford to miss. There are three dramas debuting in coming days, and, while none is a can't-miss event, each is worth a look. In image of `Hill Street' "Wonderland," which premieres tomorrow at 10 p.m. on ABC, is by far the best of the bunch.
