Mr. Johansson was born and raised in Kirjala, Finland. During the 1930s, he served as an officer in the Finnish cavalry and later joined the Finnish merchant marine, serving aboard ships as a purser and chef.

Scarlett Johansson is too good and too hot for Woody Allen's Match Point. She brings down this homicidal London-set romance like a match igniting a Covent Garden opera house of cards. There's a lot of opera in this movie. As if the prominent placement of Crime and Punishment weren't enough to foreshadow gloom and doom, the onslaught of arias indicates that nothing will be easy for Johansson's struggling American actress, Nola Rice, and her ambitious Irish lover, Chris Wilton (Jonathan Rhys-Meyers)

The Washington Capitals and veteran defenseman Calle Johansson parted ways yesterday on friendly terms. Johansson and Caps general manager George McPhee agreed the 16-year veteran would not be part of the team's on-ice plans next season. "Calle is not sure if he will play next season, but if he does, he'll explore free agency," McPhee said. "If he decides not to play, we'd like to have him join our European scouting staff. He was one of our best defensemen for 15 years and is one of the classiest individuals in the game."

The newly renamed Economic Alliance of Greater Baltimore announced yesterday that it has promoted its No. 2 executive, Christian S. Johansson, to managing director and head of the organization. Under a new leadership arrangement, David M. Gillece, president of the commercial real estate firm Colliers Pinkard and chairman of the Economic Alliance, will take on the added role of the business group's chief executive.

The Washington Capitals, whose locker room resembles a MASH unit, sent defensemen Calle Johansson, Joe Reekie and Stewart Malgunas for more X-rays and exams yesterday.The good news is that the Caps learned that Johansson's right wrist, injured in the team's 4-2 loss at Pittsburgh on Thursday, is not broken. They also learned that Reekie, who suffered a bruised nerve in his left foot in the same game, is day-to-day.The bad news is that Johansson's wrist is so badly sprained that he still will be out two to four weeks.

"For us, this is a shot in the arm to have resources necessary to assist small businesses," said Christian S. Johansson, Maryland's secretary of business and economic development.

Maryland's unemployment rate is creeping higher, though still trailing the national average. The state's struggling with a budget deficit, and many agencies, including the Department of Business and Economic Development, face sharp funding cuts. Yet Christian S. Johansson, the agency's new secretary, is bullish about Maryland's position in the recession. The 36-year-old Harvard MBA was tapped by Gov. Martin O'Malley in January to lead the agency, He knows that past governors have typically chosen DBED leaders with more experience, but Johansson said he believes he'll be judged more on the results he can deliver to businesses and workers across Maryland.

At a time of financial crisis, Gov. Martin O'Malley has chosen as the state's new economic development chief a thirtysomething Baltimorean whose private-sector experience includes a failed dot-com, two companies based out of his mother's home and a year at a consulting firm. O'Malley's choice of Christian S. Johansson to lead the state Department of Business and Economic Development might seem risky for a Cabinet post recently held by men decades his senior with far more experience in business and government.

Johansson, who must be confirmed by the Senate, would replace David W. Edgerley, who resigned in December to pursue a career in the private sector or education. O'Malley has sought to reorganize the Department of Business and Economic Development, a process that emphasized efforts for the biotechnology industry and international trade and consolidated some functions.

You kiss Penelope Cruz, exchange a few e-mails with Barack Obama, get engaged to heartthrob Ryan Reynolds, and what? People talk?! Well, if you're Scarlett Johansson, they do. But the 23-year-old New Yorker has a few things of her own to say about what people are saying. And, by the way, you'll be seeing a lot more of Johansson soon ... and we're not talking about the sex scene in Vicky Cristina Barcelona, which now is in theaters. She's got two more highly anticipated films on the horizon - the comic-strip adaptation The Spirit and the star-studded take on the relationship advice best-seller He's Just Not That Into You. In VCB, Johansson's third Woody Allen film, she plays Cristina, one of two American girls who get romantically involved with a pair of wild Spaniards played by Javier Bardem and Cruz.

WASHINGTON - The Washington Capitals got a jolt of adrenaline against an even more goal-starved team than them last night and shut out the Atlanta Thrashers, 3-0. It was Washington's and goalie Olie Kolzig's first shutout of the season. He made 34 saves as the Caps ended a six-game winless streak. But with the good news for the Capitals came bad news as well. Veteran defenseman Calle Johansson will undergo shoulder surgery tomorrow to repair a severely torn right rotator cuff and will be out for the rest of the season.

BEIJING - He is the ultimate Swiss timepiece now. Gold, no less. Roger Federer has been pursuing a spot on the top platform of an Olympic victory stand for eight years and three Olympics, and it didn't seem possible that he had not yet made the climb. He has been the best tennis player in the world for long enough to have your son or daughter start and finish college, but the Olympics have always been his banana peel. Last night, it finally came to pass that dreams do come true, even for icons who have realized almost all of theirs.
