About midway through the episode, it became so clear who this week's eliminated team was going to be that the show itself seemed to lose interest. Not that Team You Tube was that interesting anyway, on this season or  Joey and Meagan were pleasant enough, but for two people who have willingly spent so much of their waking life talking into a camera, the two Internet personalities never really excelled in their "Amazing Race" interviews. Ultimately, Team You Tube was tripped up by a banal mistake.

The books are pretty eclectic, from How to Win Friends and Influence People to  The Handmaid's Tale to I'm a Frog . What they (and the titles in the headline) have in common -- possibly the only thing -- is that they're all on the U.S. Department of Labor's Books That Shaped Work in America list . The agency launched the project to celebrate its 100th anniversary, and it's asking for more contributions. "It would be great if the City That Reads was able to make some recommendations on books that they think need to be included," said Leni Fortson, an agency spokeswoman.

Think Mexico is only for spring breakers on a beach, coconut drink and pink umbrella in hand? Think again. Adventurous visitors willing to branch out from well-traveled haunts like Puerto Vallarta or the Riviera Maya will be rewarded with singular experiences, from a freshwater lagoon in Quintana Roo to a treasure-trove of Mayan handicrafts in a stunning colonial town. Leave the crowded coast behind and stumble upon un-excavated pyramids rising from the jungle, warm swimming holes carved from limestone beneath the earth or a tranquil fishing village on the Pacific.

Editor's note: After being tricked into joining the circus, an arrogant lion escapes and returns to the jungle where he once lorded over the other animals. One day, while the animals were picking bananas for the almighty king, a man was seen roaming through the jungle. The monkeys ran and told the lion. "Oh, very well." The lion yawned. "I'll take a look. I was bored anyway." So the lion slunk through the bushes and vines until he spotted the man. "Rrrrroar!" he hollered, and leaped on top of the surprised man, who, incidentally, looked like he would make a lovely dinner.

WASHINGTON -- Twenty-five years ago last spring, Marines of the 3rd Reconnaissance Battalion returning from jungle patrols near Da Nang told me of running into white soldiers working with enemy forces in the I Corps area of South Vietnam.They theorized that the Caucasians in the mountains jungle near the demilitarized zone were French, or former French colonial troops converted to communism after being captured in the Indochina war more than a decade earlier. Or perhaps they were Russians.

Cellophane Marie Arana Dial / 371 pages / $24 In Marie Arana's expansive, exuberant first novel, a mid-20th century inventor with a passion for paper builds a factory in the middle of the Peruvian jungle and there develops his own process for making cellophane. That cellophane had been invented by a Swiss engineer nearly half a century earlier, and has been produced and sold by DuPont for more than a quarter-century, does little to dim the thrill of discovery for Don Victor Sobrevilla.

The world's largest flower, a voluptuous beauty as red as lipstick and as big as a child, makes its physical home in the steamy jungle floors of southeast Asia. Now, analysis of the flower's DNA has placed it in a strange taxonomical home - in a family of plants with tiny flowers. Rafflesia, as it's called, is a freak of nature. But it seems the flower is also a freak of evolution. How did such big flowers, some a yard wide, evolve from flowers less than an inch across? "It's a mind blower," said Daniel Nickrent, a Southern Illinois University at Carbondale plant biologist and one of the authors of the study, which was published in the journal Science.

Now that the NFL season is here, I'm putting a twist on my weekly Blogger on Blogger series. Each week, I will enlist a blogger who regularly writes about the Ravens' opponent to help me break down the game. This week, I exchanged emails with Josh Kirkendall, who blogs about the Bengals for Cincy Jungle . MV: The Bengals are no longer the Bungles, having gone to the playoffs in consecutive seasons for the first time in decades. With a big cushion in the AFC North, they are poised to make it three in a row this season.

The family of a Baltimore school student was awarded a $50,000 settlement after their son was severely injured on a faulty playground at Francis Scott Key Elementary/Middle School last year. The city's Board of Estimates approved the settlement this week, which stemmed from a $100,000 negligence lawsuit against the city school board for the boy's injuries. According to the claim approved by the city's board, the boy fractured his arms in March 2012 when he was pushed from the school's jungle gym. The jungle gym, the suit claimed, did not have retaining panels on the platform, which would have provided protection from a fall.

Last week's episode was all about shock and awe: Brooks said something that made sense and Tamra did something admirable. Tonight's episode is filled with mock and "Awww, no she didn't!" We open with Tamra fessing up to Her Highness Heather (HHH) and her hubby Terry admitting that she threw Terry (and by association, Heather) under the bus with Alexis last week. If Tamra had any kind of track record of behaving like a normal person, I would give her mad props for her honesty, but it's not that kind of party.

There's always something, isn't there? There's always a catch. The world is a tricky place. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is. If you're not on your game and you don't read the fine print, you stand a pretty good chance of being somebody's sucker. It's all acutely true if you're a guy who doesn't do a lot of retail shopping in big, national chains, which describes me. If I can shop at a locally owned store, that's what I usually do. Things are less complicated there and, when you have an issue, you can talk to the man or woman who owns the business.

Now here's a Tarzan who really swings.It helps, of course, that he's a cartoon. No matter how fine an athlete Johnny Weissmuller might have been, he couldn't entirely defy gravity while swinging through those jungle trees.But an animated ape man can do just that, which makes Disney's "Tarzan" one of the best adaptations of Edgar Rice Burroughs' stories -- best in the sense that this dude really does come across as more ape than man, swinging effortlessly through the trees with blinding speed.

A mid the clamor in Annapolis to find ways to reduce spending, it's not surprising that Baltimore's share of transportation aid has drawn state lawmakers' attention like hungry lions eyeing a wounded zebra. But a proposal to cut $30 million in city aid, not to help balance the state budget but to enrich more affluent jurisdictions, demonstrates how nature's carnivores have nothing on the predators in Annapolis. Such blatant theft would surely make the Sheriff of Nottingham proud.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Many people dream of running away from home and joining the circus. Neil Goldberg had a better dream -- to create his own circus. Tucked away in a cluster of Pompano Beach warehouses are the offices, circus school and design shops for Goldberg's Cirque Dreams Studios, a home-grown operation that has turned into an international entertainment conglomerate. Although he has big plans to branch out into television and the Broadway stage, at the moment Goldberg is content sending his psychedelic European-style circus to college campuses, casinos and performing arts complexes, like the Hippodrome Theatre, where Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy opens for a week's stay Tuesday evening.
