1999 Francis Coppola Diamond Series Chardonnay, Gold Label ($15). The famed director's Napa Valley winery has expanded its line of wines with generally impressive results. This well-balanced, medium- to full-bodied California chardonnay shows a stylishness and vibrant character that is increasingly hard to find in this price range. It offers fresh flavors of apple, pear, lemon, toast and a subtle seasoning of white pepper. There's a soft, gentle texture to the wine, but good acidity in the finish.

Lately, things have been heating up for the local rock band Hotspur. Since singer/songwriter Joe Mach and keyboardist Dave Trichter formed the band after graduating from the University of Maryland in 2004, Hotspur has become an independent success story. The five-piece group's second full-length album, "You Should Know Better By Now," was picked up by area Best Buy stores, and the band has drawn several hundred people to shows at Rams Head Live and the 9:30 Club . In July, Hotspur won the NMS Artist on the Verge contest, netting the band about $50,000 worth of merchandise and equipment.

Morningbird Records has come out swinging. The Columbia company, which started in 1999 promoting its Christian singing groups over the Internet, has had its Christian jazz group, praise-and-worship ensemble and contemporary Christian band broadcast on radio stations in Australia and Zambia after the music is downloaded off the Internet. Their music is on the shelves in area Christian bookstores as well as at Record and Tape Traders and the Borders bookstore in Columbia. Since 1999, the label has sold more than 6,000 compact discs.

Again and again, she made me smile that year. And just when I thought she'd be around for a while, just when I thought she'd lift me into the stratosphere with more of her music -- poof! -- the girl was gone. Adriana Evans is the mysterious songstress whose CD stayed in my changer and Walkman for an entire year, filling my headphones day in and out. I still play her album regularly. In '97, my sophomore year at the University of Arkansas, the San Francisco-raised artist dropped her self-titled debut.

BOSTON - Thus begins another day in the Internet cafe. I arrive at the office, decap my java, turn on the computer, and begin consuming the typical American breakfast: coffee and spam. On my electronic plate I find the usual fare: Several offers to enlarge my penis, an opportunity to lose weight while I sleep, a chance to get a lower mortgage, get out of debt, buy prescription drugs online, all while watching XXX-rated teen-agers. With the only utensil at hand - a plastic delete button - I pick at my food.

When the biggest rap tour of the season stops by 1st Mariner Arena on Saturday, opening act Machine Gun Kelly will provide a stark contrast to the flashy, dipped-in-gold Maybach Music Group trio of Wale, Meek Mill and headliner Rick Ross. While the MMG clique presents a cool, almost icy demeanor in its songs, the 22-year-old Cleveland rapper, born Richard Colson Baker, takes the opposite approach, fearlessly spitting double-time flows in the face of the audience. When his rapid-fire delivery fails to spark the crowd, MGK keeps a battering ram of a single in his back pocket.

The staff of Clue magazine doesn't like the "twentysomething" label.They admit that's what they are and acknowledge it's the audience they have in mind for their soon-to-be-launched Baltimore literary magazine. And lacking anything better, they even plan to use it in their new publication, which they hope will showcase the city's artistic and literary talent.But they don't necessarily like the image it conveys -- vaguely elitist, a tad superficial, the idea of a generation that doesn't know where it's going and doesn't really care.

WASHINGTON -- Federal health officials proposed new label warnings for all antidepressants yesterday, a move aimed at protecting 18- to 24-year-olds who might be at increased risk of suicidal thinking and behavior during early months of treatment. The "black box" update would follow similar changes made to antidepressants' labels in 2005 that added a warning of increased suicide risks among children and adolescents but did not give specific ages.

The timing is off -- way off. But Sunshine Anderson feels it's better late than never. After nearly six years of silence, the R&B singer has finally released her sophomore effort, Sunshine After Midnight. The CD belatedly follows her hit 2001 debut, Your Woman. Spurred by the sassy, strutting crossover smash "Heard It All Before," that album entered the Top 10 on Billboard's pop charts five Aprils ago, eventually going gold. Anderson's lyrical directness and swaggering, slightly off-key approach drew comparisons to the original 'hood-rat diva, Mary J. Blige.

When coronary arteries get dangerously narrow, the solution -- increasingly -- is to prop open the walls with a device called a drug-eluting stent. Now, two new studies are adding fuel to a growing debate about whether these stents are being overused, with ill consequences for patients. The studies, both published in the May 9 issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, included large groups of patients who were treated for narrowing in their coronary arteries with the stents, which are tiny drug-coated cylinders used to prop open blocked arteries.
