It's no Club Med, but this colony of Argentinean ex-pats on the Mediterranean coast is certainly living la vida loca. They arrived about 1920, and today they number in the billions. That's right, billions with a B. All living and working in harmony, across 6,000 miles from the Italian Riviera to the Cote D'Azure, from the Costa del Sol to the Montanhas on Portugal's northeast coast. Not what you'd expect from members of the newly discovered supercolony of Argentine ants on the European coast, given their disposition back home.

A team of civilian specialists from Aberdeen Proving Ground is headed to the Mediterranean Sea for what is being called a historic mission to destroy Syria's chemical warfare stockpile - an effort that could serve as a model in the drive to rid the world of weapons of mass destruction. The 64 civilians and contractors from the Edgewood Area are at the center of an international mission to neutralize up to 700 tons of chemical agents surrendered by the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Ravens cornerback Chris Carr is everywhere, all at once. He had played in 97 straight games before being injured in this year's season opener, where he was part of a defense that forced a franchise-record seven turnovers in a 35-7 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. On the field, Carr is praised for his initiative, versatility and camaraderie with his teammates. Off the field, he's spent time interning at a law firm, a profession he plans to pursue after football. Last winter, the engaging political science major from Boise State was presented with the media's Good Guy Award for his accessibility and candor.

When word reached me that a new fish was in town, I hustled down to the harbor to meet it and eat it. I said "nice to meet you" and "bon appetit" to five different servings of gilthead sea bream, a fish with a Mediterranean heritage that grew up in an East Baltimore warehouse. A lunch honoring the fish was held last week at the Columbus Center in Baltimore's Inner Harbor. There, researchers at the Center of Marine Biotechnology were trumpeting the fact that they had successfully induced the sea bream, normally an ocean dweller, to reproduce in captivity.

One of the largest shipping lines at the port of Baltimore is considering curtailing its business there because of what a company official called the "political incompetence" of Ehrlich administration officials running the port. Capt. E. Lorenzo Di Casagrande, vice president of Mediterranean Shipping Company Inc., wrote that Transportation Secretary Robert L. Flanagan is jeopardizing long-term business relationships by stripping port Director James White of his authority and replacing seasoned workers with people who don't have "the slightest idea of the shipping industry".

MAGALUF, MAJORCA / / After jostling crowds at one tourist-clogged port after another, the chance for a shore break on this sunny Mediterranean island was just what the ship's doctor ordered. The beach at Magaluf beckoned, and Kevin, my 19-year-old son, and I stretched out under the shade of a thatched umbrella hut. Bikini tops tied to the yardarms of the huts around us fluttered in the breeze, like flags of hedonism, while their owners got that little extra bit of sun. Now we know why some call Magaluf "Majorca's party capital."

A chef's dream: a restaurant serving the earthy foods of all the countries on the Mediterranean Sea. The reality: Tabrizi's, a new restaurant and gourmet carryout on South Charles Street.Since he left Israel at age 20 to work in restaurants and hotels in Europe, Michael Tabrizi has wanted a place with an open kitchen where customers could sit at the counter and schmooze while they watch him cook. After three years in the United States, he chose to open such a place in Baltimore because it is a harbor city like Haifa, Israel, where he was born.

There's a new eatery in Columbia that offers Turkish and Italian dishes as well as American flair and a menu for kids. Rustem “Rudy” Keskin is the brains behind Rudy's Mediterranean Grill & Diner, which opened in the Gateway Plaza in Columbia earlier this year. Keskin grew up helping in the kitchens of relatives' restaurants in his hometown of Istanbul, Turkey. Later, as a Howard County resident, Keskin says he learned quite a lot as a waiter and in the kitchen of the Double-T Diner in Ellicott City, where he worked prior to establishing his own restaurant.

Columbia Gateway seems a well-conceived venue for a variety of area businesses. Whatever the purpose, though, the troops need to be fed. So that busy area features a number of eateries that draw local workers and area diners as well. One such facility is an “all-American” strip center boasting three restaurants that cater to those with other than all-American palates. There's Indian. There's Japanese. And in between the two is Rudy's Mediterranean Grill (and Diner), which provides a compendium of culinary approaches at breakfast and lunch, then focuses on Turkish at dinner.

Ozra, a Persian-Mediterranean restaurant, has opened, quietly, in Little Italy.  Ozra's formal opening, according to co-owner Reza Holland, is July 26. Until then, Holland said, the restaurant will be asking in friends and family, but curious passersby are being welcomed in to dine as well. Ozra occupies a long-shuttered Stiles Street location that longtime Little Italy residents will remember as the Impallaria/Gramigna Bakery. Holland and his partner, Mahrdad "Max" Tabasi, purchased the building in 2009 and have spent the last two-and-a-half years completely renovating the property.

Sitting on the cool patio at Donna's at Cross Key's, enjoying a fine dinner of gazpacho, Moroccan-spiced lamb meatballs and bouillabaisse, I got to telling my friends about the old days at Donna's. These friends weren't living in Baltimore back in 1992, when it all started. "You know," I told them, "no one was dipping bread in olive oil before Donna's started it. " I'm not sure they believed it. I'm not sure I believe it, but that's how I remember it. If you've forgotten 1992 - I know I have - Bill Clinton was elected president, the Orioles played their first season at Camden Yards and Michael Keaton was Batman.

A new study provides the best evidence to date that a Mediterranean diet high in olive oil, fish, vegetables and nuts can reduce heart disease. The research, published today in the New England Journal of Medicine online edition, found that the diet can reduce heart attacks and strokes by 30 percent. Other scientists have had similar findings, but this study conducted in Spain is the first major clinical trial. Previous research mostly showed that people living in Mediterranean countries had low risk of heart disease.

Rudy's Mediterranean Grill & Diner has a pretty descriptive name, suggesting a menu filled with typical diner fare — omelets, sandwiches, a few Greek specialties. But with roots planted on the Turkish side of the Mediterranean, Rudy's adds a new twist to traditional fare. Owner Rudy Keskin moved to the U.S. in 1998, leaving his native Istanbul, where he spent summers working in family restaurants — he calls his hometown, "the most interesting city in the world. " At Rudy's, Keskin shares his passion for Istanbul via well-executed traditional Turkish recipes (Keskin himself isn't behind the stove, though his chef is also a Turkish native)
