It's Thursday night on the seventh floor of Hagerstown Hall dorm, and there's a party going on.Well, sort of a party.In the lounge, there are three giant bags of potato chips, two huge platters of chocolate chip cookies and a couple of cases of soft drinks. There are also 15 or so University of Maryland, College Park students in cutoffs, sweats, jeans and gym shorts eating, drinking and waiting for the start of "Seinfeld."Other dormies wander in and out. One woman dries her hair in preparation for a date that she says "will probably be totally Elainesque"; one guy slides in the door like Cosmo Kramer.

Sharon Fenick first heard the figure of speech "rule of thumb" cited as a sexist pejorative during her freshman year at Harvard seven years ago.The phrase was invoked in a lecture as an example of domestic abuse permitted by British common law. The rule of thumb, according to the professor, was a law that allowed a man to beat his wife so long as the rod used was no thicker than his thumb. But over the centuries, the term had evolved into vernacular for an "approximate measure.""It sounded very believable to me," says the 24-year-old Fenick, now in her third year of law school at the University of Chicago.

A Baltimore County jury convicted former UMBC student John C. Gaumer of murder and rape yesterday in the beating death and sexual assault of a woman he had met online, capping four days of evidence and testimony that a prosecutor acknowledged to jurors was as shocking as it was graphic. The verdicts - announced to a packed courtroom about 4:30 p.m. after jurors deliberated for less than five hours - set up a capital sentencing hearing scheduled to begin Monday. With the jury convicting Gaumer of both first-degree murder and first-degree rape - a charge that serves as an "aggravating circumstance" under Maryland's death penalty statute - prosecutors will seek a death sentence.
