NEW YORK -Standard & Poor's cut the credit ratings yesterday on $18 billion in municipal bonds backed by payments cigarette makers owe the states, blaming weakening industry conditions. The ratings reductions, which apply to debt maturing after April 15, 2004, come as cigarette makers encounter an "adverse litigation environment and expectations for additional state excise tax increases," Standard & Poor's said. Also contributing to the ratings downgrades was a report by Philip Morris USA that cigarette shipments fell by 16 percent in the first quarter.

Perhaps the most startling fact about Coppin State University is the number of academic buildings on campus. There's just one. "And it's totally inadequate," said Maqbool Patel, the university's vice president for capital projects. While other public universities typically have separate buildings for education courses, liberal arts and the sciences, all of Coppin's nearly 3,200 students take classes in the 25-year-old Grace Hill Jacobs building. Space is so limited at the historically black college on North Avenue that student lounges and parts of hallways have been converted into classrooms.

If you regularly contribute money to a 401(k) or mutual fund, you're using a technique known as dollar-cost averaging to invest in the stock market. For beginning investors, it's a way to join the market fray without fretting over when to jump in - you can start anytime. Although it's common among people building their long-term savings, the strategy still calls for discipline in both good and bad times. It works basically like this: When share prices rise, your fixed dollar amount buys fewer shares; but when prices drop, those same dollars snap up more shares at a bargain.
