From: Tuscany, Italy Price: $14 Serve with: Clams, oysters This complex but moderately priced Italian white wine shows the distinctly nutty character of vernaccia, with a strong underlying flavor of minerals. Fruit flavors don't predominate in this severely dry but satisfying wine, but they are present: citrus, pear and a hint of coconut. This is another fine selection from Angelini Wines — an importer to watch.

Detroit Pistons coach Chuck Daly, who will coach the team, included Miner on his short list -- six names -- of players he thinks would fit in well in the one or two spots that will go to college players.

As a sport dietitian, I find it very interesting to be on the sideline listening to what parents and players have to say about feeding and hydrating lacrosse players. Where do they get this information? Do they really believe that three Red Bulls before a game will improve performance? Here are the three common sports nutrition myths heard on the sidelines: MYTH: Players do not need to eat carbohydrates because lacrosse is a sprinting sport, not an endurance event. FACT: The game of lacrosse involves lots of sprinting and jogging, and very little walking.

HENDERSON, Nev. — Harold Miner pulls up in a black Cadillac Escalade, rolls down a window and extends his right hand to greet a visitor. Later, the publicity-shy former USC basketball All-American is friendly and engaging. He shows no sign of discomfort as he recalls the pain of failed expectations and explains why he has mostly strayed from the public eye since his surprisingly unremarkable NBA career short-circuited 15 years ago. Smiling and laughing easily, he appears thoroughly at ease.

The 33 men trapped in the Chilean mine for two months were exposed to extreme conditions, including poor air quality and 90-degree heat, which left rescuers desperate for real-time information about the miners' health. An Annapolis company, Zephyr Technology, helped fill the data void. Zephyr, a 30-person firm, provided the digital tools that allowed rescuers a half-mile above them to monitor the miners' conditions over the last month. Zephyr makes the BioHarness, a chest strap with digital sensors and wireless technology that monitor and transmit the wearer's vital signs.

Doctors thousands of miles apart were looking for signs of neurological activity yesterday as two men - a world leader and a coal miner - slowly emerged from medically induced comas. The doctors had similar reasons to place Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and West Virginia miner Randal McCloy in states of deep sleep: to give their brains a rest from injuries that nearly killed them. Sharon suffered a massive brain hemorrhage requiring three operations, and McCloy suffered carbon monoxide poisoning while trapped in a West Virginia mine.

The families of two Western Maryland coal miners who died in a 2007 accident filed a lawsuit Thursday against the strip mine's operator, contending that unsafe conditions led to their deaths. The $4 million suit was brought by the widows and children of Michael R. Wilt and Dale Jones. The two men were working in a coal pit in Barton on April 17, 2007, when an unstable "highwall" collapsed, raining some 93,000 tons of rock and material on their heavy-equipment vehicles. The federal Mine Safety and Health Administration cited the operator, Tri-Star Mining Inc., for violations that it said contributed to the accident.
