SHANGHAI -- Call it capitalism with Chinese characteristics.* A middle-aged Chinese factory manager returning here from a business trip to Beijing settles into his airplane seat. The glint from his fat gold ring parallels his political views. "The government still preaches socialism," he says. "But I don't care what ism they preach. I just worry about making money."* In this city and in the special economic zone of Shenzhen to the south, tens of thousands regularly joust with one another in long lines to buy a chance to purchase new issues on China's two fledgling but red-hot stock exchanges.

Pop-culture references are not new to sermons, but a high-profile Baltimore pastor is making national headlines for quoting a popular Chris Brown song. Recently, the Rev. Jamal Bryant of the Empowerment Temple was in the middle of an impassioned sermon titled “I'm My Enemies' Worst Nightmare.” To punctuate a point about men needing to recognize the good women in their lives (and not “run off with a side chick,” as Bryant also said), he surprised the congregation by quoting the chorus of Brown's current hit, “Loyal.” “God help me. Old saints, y'all forgive me, but I got to tell you: These hoes ain't loyal!

All I want for Christmas this year is a good set of garden tools. . . and the good sense to use them properly.My old hand tools are a wreck. Both the hoe and the lawn rake are broken, their handles cracked in half. You'd have thought I had used them as baseball bats. Well, I didn't. However, the garden shovel has stroked a few hits during pick-up games in the back yard. Maybe that's why there is a 2-inch gash in the blade.I ruined the hoe a week ago, while chopping at a stump the size of Kuwait.

Everyone just had so much to do today. The best advice the girls can give Emily as she deals with the visitor in the crawl space at Mrs. DiLaurentis' house is to always wear underwear. Thanks, Spencer. While the girls spend lunch trying to piece together the suspects that could possibly live in the infamous crawlspace, Lieutenant Tanner tries to line up some suspects of her own. During her brief lunch visit with the girls, LT. Tanner mentions the shoe that matches the prints found at Detective Wilden's murder scene and its appearance at Emily's house.

There's even a listing for Satan (nofirst name is listed), who composed Trauermarsch in 1946.The encyclopedia, the result of 12 years of research by William Rehrig of Joppa, a middle-school band director, is the first comprehensive listing of band music.

Did you have the right stuff? For the garden, that is. You really only need about 10 basic tools, and maybe another five. Everything else is gravy.

For once at least, Glenelg junior outside hitter Julie Hollrah is inclined to agree with the saying that you shouldn't believe everything you read in the newspaper. Spurred by a comment in a Howard County-based weekly paper that Reservoir had "outplayed" the Gladiators during a preseason volleyball scrimmage, Hollrah and her No. 5 Glenelg teammates needed less than an hour to sweep the No. 9 Gators, 25-10, 25-16, 25-20, in Fulton last night. The loss was Reservoir's first in five starts this season.

"Can U Control Yo Hoe" - so asks the high priest of gangster rap, Snoop Dogg, on his CD R&G: (Rhythm and Gangsta): The Masterpiece. In "Housewife" on his CD 2001, Dr. Dre says, "Naw, `hoe' is short for honey." Rapper Beanie Sigel says "Watch Your Bitches" on his 2001 album The Reason. Just a light sampling of how gangster rappers, some black filmmakers and comedians routinely reduce young black women to "stuff," "bitches" and "hoes." Their contempt reinforces the slut image of black women and sends the message that violence, mistreatment and verbal abuse of black women are socially acceptable.

Attempting to make the postseason for a second consecutive year, the Orioles made the boldest move of Wednesday's exceptionally quiet non-waiver trade deadline, acquiring 28-year-old right-handed pitcher Bud Norris from the Houston Astros for two local products, outfielder L.J. Hoes and minor league lefty Josh Hader. The Orioles also gave up their competitive lottery draft pick for next year - roughly 35th overall - and gained an extra international bonus slot (91st overall, worth slightly over $200,000)

L.J. Hoes walked into the Orioles clubhouse on Wednesday glad to see his name in the starting lineup. He didn't know that come gametime, he'd be playing for the opposing team. Hoes, the Orioles' No. 6 prospect according to Baseball America, was dealt to the Houston Astros Wednesday in a deal for right-handed starter Bud Norris. Hoes was sitting at his locker around 3:30 p.m. on Thursday when he took a glance at his Twitter timeline and saw a tweet saying he was being traded. For Hoes, a Mitchellville native who grew up an Orioles fan, it was bittersweet.

It took L.J. Hoes a roundabout way to get to from Triple-A Norfolk to Baltimore this weekend, but the outfielder eventually made it to the Orioles to make his first major league start. Hoes left Rochester, N.Y., on Saturday evening with the goal to make it to Baltimore that night. But as his flight approached Detroit, thunderstorms forced the plane to circle, and it was diverted to Cleveland as it ran low on fuel. By the time Hoes made it to Detroit, his flight to Baltimore had left without him, so he had to spend the night there before flying to Baltimore on Sunday morning.

Outfielder L.J. Hoes is headed to Baltimore and will most likely be activated for Sunday's Orioles game against the Boston Red Sox, according to a source. Hoes, rated as the No. 6 prospect in the organization by Baseball America, is batting .304 with a .406 on-base percentage in 99 games for Triple-A Norfolk this season. He has more walks (58) than strikeouts (56) to go with 29 extra-base hits. The 23-year-old made his major-league debut Sept. 25, 2012 and appeared in two games with one at-bat for the Orioles.

The Orioles made a cut Sunday, sending outfielder L.J. Hoes to minor league camp. The 23-year-old Hoes hit .320 (8-for-25) in 16 games with the Orioles this spring. More than anything, the converted infielder opened eyes with his outfield defense. “I think the thing I was most impressed with is how far he came defensively. He played a good outfield here,” Showalter said. “He's been good, He was really good defensively.” Hoes, who Baseball America ranks as the sixth best prospect in the Orioles system, appeared in two games with the Orioles last year, getting one official at-bat, He is targeted for Triple-A Norfolk, where he hit .300 in 82 games as a 22-year-old.

Orioles rookie outfielder L.J. Hoes earned a taste of the big leagues this past season, but the organization's minor league player of the year faces a tough fight this spring to make the 25-man roster out of camp. The Mitchellville native was a late-inning sub in two late-September games last season - he had just one at-bat, an eighth-inning ground out to short in the Sept. 26 game against Toronto - but he was able to experience the Orioles' push to the postseason firsthand. “It was tremendous,” Hoes told reporters Tuesday during the Orioles' annual holiday party.

The Orioles didn't have to make any extra travel plans for their top minor-league award winners for the first time in 20-plus years. On Tuesday, as part of minor league appreciation night, the organization honored current Oriole right-hander Dylan Bundy (Jim Palmer Prize) and outfielder L.J. Hoes (Brooks Robinson Award) during a pre-game ceremony at Camden Yards. Only two other times in the club's history have both of its top minor league award winners been with the Orioles in September: Anthony Telford and Leo Gomez in 1990 and Mike Mussina and Chito Martinez in 1991.

Outfielder L.J. Hoes is expected to be announced Tuesday as this year's winner of the Brooks Robinson Award for the best season by an Orioles minor league hitter. He won't be winning it alone, though, not in his mind anyway. "I really played this whole season for my grandfather. He has been sick this whole season," said the 22-year-old Hoes, who was the Orioles' third-round pick out of Mitchellville, Md., in 2008. "He passed away in August, and I played the whole season for him. " Charles E. Hoes , a retired bio-lab technician born in Germantown, died Aug. 16 at age 78 from ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
