The Queen's Household Cavalry exercising their horses on the fringes of Hyde Park. Christmas decorations in the shop windows of Vienna. Choking smog at 5 a.m. on the streets of Bangkok. Icy, pre-dawn wind blowing off Lake Ontario one February in Toronto. The great blue heron that makes its home on Upper Hollow Road in Dorset, Vt.These are a dollop of the experiences I've had, looking back on four years (almost to the day, as you read this) of systematic exercising.Is it legit to devote a management column to wishing my personal exercise program happy birthday?

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Orioles opened their 11-game road trip with a 10-2 win over the Oakland A's on Thursday night . Here's what some of the key figures had to say about the victory: Chris Davis on the first few innings malaise: “The first couple innings I felt like we had a little jet lag working. So I think it was huge for us to get a bunch of hits and everybody kind of get that monkey off  their backs after traveling across country.” Davis on the HBP that wasn't: “It hit the top of my foot.

WASHINGTON -- It was the kind of gut-wrenching cable that came across Jon Western's State Department desk every day for virtually a whole year: a 9-year-old Muslim girl raped by Serbian fighters, then left in a pool of blood while her parents watched helplessly from behind a fence for two days before she died.It was the kind of cable that led Mr. Western earlier this month to quit his job as an Eastern Europe analyst out of frustration with what he considered America's lack of resolve in solving the Bosnian crisis.

Op-ed contributor Mickey Fenzel recently wrote about "the malady of America's soul" and whether we have the will to heal it ("The malady of America's soul," Dec. 18). The tragedy in Newtown should challenge us all to begin a conversation has long been needed. My first thought on reading his commentary was of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel's most famous quote: "Some are guilty, all of us are responsible. " The culture of the United States has changed in the last several decades.

IN THE third year of his presidency, Jimmy Carter went up the mountain to Camp David and for an extraordinary ten days had himself lectured to and analyzed by gurus and plain citizens about what was described in those days as the "national malaise."With the benefit of hindsight, it can now be seen that the "malaise" was mainly the result of long gas lines -- that the nation's spirit would lift once the gas lines went away and sunny Ronald Reagan invoked American optimism.Now, in the third year of his presidency, Bill Clinton has also gone introspective.

PARIS -- There is something wrong in France, everyone agrees. As always, they call it the malaise, a tired word for a tired and dispirited condition.But not everybody concurs on the cause or the cure.To some the cause is obvious, and so is the corrective. Franz-Olivier Giesbert, editor of the influential newspaper Le Figaro, thinks he knows what to do.For him, the source of the malaise is the Socialist Party that has governed France since 1981 (with a two-year interruption). By extension, that includes President Francois Mitterrand, who founded it, and who has been in office longer than any president since the Fifth Republic was launched by Charles De Gaulle in 1958.

As we all learned many years ago in school, those who ignore history are doomed to, well, bring up the subject of funk. Not funky chicken and not funky Broadway. But actual, down-in-the-dumps funk.We're talking of our president, of course. Except he's not just your president anymore. He's Bill "Sir Funk-A-Lot" Clinton. (Watch for him in Part 8 of the PBS Rock and Roll retrospective.)In an interview on Air Force One the other day, Clinton said - and I'm not sure whether he had backup singers - that among his many duties as president, he was "trying to get people out of their funk."

Howard County is going a little ballistic, which is understandable. Just months ago, Howard was the green ghetto of the state -- with so much money it could even afford to clamp down on growth. Now comes the revelation that Howard is not immune to the economic vagaries that beset other jurisdictions. Growth, it turns out, slowed on its own, and the national economic downtown will produce a deficit of nearly $18 million.Ironically, the County Council reacted by approving a 5 percent assessment tax cap. Cutting off a critical revenue source in the face of a deficit obviously doesn't make a lot of fiscal sense, but it at least offers the perception of fiscal restraint.

Signs grew that the economy could turn even weaker in 2009, as an index of December manufacturing activity sank to its lowest point in 28 years. Every corner of the sector was down, from bakeries to cigarette-makers to aluminum smelters. The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing executives, said yesterday that its manufacturing index fell to 32.4 in December, a greater-than-expected decline from November's reading of 36.2. Even so, Wall Street brushed aside the report and started the new year with a big rally yesterday, sending the Dow Jones industrials up more than 250 points and to its first close above 9,000 in two months.

Mayor Sheila Dixon's humility in the face of victory may seem curious since she overwhelmingly defeated her closest opponent. But when you look at the numbers, the mayor won Tuesday's primary with the votes of less than a fifth of registered Democrats. Turnout was low, and some say not unusually so, but it shouldn't be forgotten in the post-primary euphoria of Ms. Dixon's win. She has her work cut out for her, and energizing the electorate should be high on her list. According to city election board estimates, nearly 31 percent of Baltimore's registered Democrats cast ballots, lower than the figures from 2003 and from 1999, when 49 percent turned out for a contentious three-way primary race for mayor.

TURIN, Italy -- Passion, pageantry and Pavarotti. All three were present in grand scale last night as the XX Winter Olympics began with a sometimes majestic, sometimes whimsical opening ceremony at the Olympic Stadium. It even featured an upset. Amid a 2 1/2 -hour show highlighted by in-line skaters wearing futuristic helmets that shot flames 6 feet into the air, fake cows on rollers, dancing trees, costumes by Giorgio Armani, dancers from Milan's La Scala opera house and the incomparable Luciano Pavarotti, Stefania Belmondo, a surprise choice, was the final torchbearer.

ROME -- For years, he has been one of President Bush's most loyal supporters in Europe, a leader who steadfastly backed the U.S.-led war in Iraq and one of the few on the continent to send troops to help out. So it came as something of a surprise this weekend when Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi revealed his reservations about the war, on the eve of a visit to Washington, no less. "I tried repeatedly to convince the American president not to go to war," Berlusconi told an interviewer with the La7 television channel.

The nation's economy is continuing to sputter, but the Bush administration is betting growth will take off in coming months to fuel a recovery and help trim a soaring federal deficit. If the comeback fails to arrive, it could mean serious trouble for President Bush as next year's presidential election approaches. Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan sounded upbeat in testimony before Congress yesterday, but at the same time, the Fed reduced its growth estimate for the current fiscal year and experts outside the government say the economy remains on shaky ground.

Corvis Corp., a Columbia maker of fiber-optic equipment, said yesterday that its losses narrowed while revenue fell more than 95 percent in the second quarter. The company reported a net loss of $119.1 million, or 31 cents a share, on revenue of $3 million for the quarter that ended June 29. For the corresponding quarter last year, Corvis reported a net loss of $821.8 million, or $2.36 a share, on revenue of $65 million. "To say that market conditions in our sector remain difficult would be an understatement," Chairman and Chief Executive Officer David Huber said during a conference call yesterday.

Shrugging off bad news that had pushed it down more than 245 points by late afternoon, the Dow Jones industrial average essentially broke even in heavy trading yesterday, heartening investors who had hoped that the blue-chip index wouldn't plummet after Wednesday's near-record surge. "We were encouraged the Dow was able to hold onto its gains today," said Jane W Korhonen, a partner and senior analyst with Brown Investment Advisory & Trust Co. The Dow fell 4.98 points, or 0.06 percent yesterday, an insignificant decline, especially in light of its 488-point gain, its second-greatest point gain ever, experts such as Korhonen said.
