An upcoming special for OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network will feature a door purchased in Hampden, hon. Ruth Turner, owner of Caravanserai on the Avenue, said that scouts from the network stopped by recently to purchase a red door originally made in India. Celebrity designer Nate Berkus will use the door in an upcoming design project, Turner said. The door was handpainted by an artisan in a small village outside Jodhpur in the central India state of Rajasthan, Turner said. The door was fashioned from modern wood and decorated with antique details, said Turner, who was getting ready to hop on a plane to head to Spain for another buying trip.

In the photo from 1943, Tech. Sgt. Charles A. Bode and his fellow airmen gaze into the camera, some shirtless, some smiling, looking to modern eyes like cast members of the musical "South Pacific. " But the B-24 bomber crew would soon embark on a very real mission during the intense combat for the Pacific in World War II. The men took off from a port in New Guinea on Nov. 20, 1943; after a routine radio check, the 11 crewmen were never seen or heard from again. The mission, in a sense, finally ends for the 23-year-old Bode on Friday afternoon, when the Highlandtown man is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

While we on the Atlantic coast wait anxiously for tropical storms Barry, Chantal, Dean and Erin to appear, we forget that people elsewhere have their own storm threats and name lists to worry through. In the Eastern North Pacific they await Alvin, Barbara, Cosme and Dalila. In the Central North Pacific it's Kika, Lana, Maka and Neki. There are separate name lists - and varied naming rules - for the Western North Pacific, for Fiji, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, the Indian Ocean (two)

Our greatest deficit is not economic; it's social. As a cultural and consumer anthropologist who has studied the recession for the last two years, I believe the downturn led us to this situation. With this knowledge, I feel we are in a position to have a great year, but not because the economy will necessarily rebound (although that would be nice). 2011 will be great because we'll start to create and live by our "sense of social" — the sum total of relationships we create with others and our ability to leverage these relationships to create a mutually beneficial way of life.

Bruce Beehler has enshrined the moment in August 1959, when he first glimpsed the future perching in a tree at Lake Roland. Picnicking with his family in Baltimore County, the 8-year-old boy happened to look up and spot a red-bellied woodpecker. "At the time, I didn't know what the hell it was," he says. "I just knew it was the most beautiful thing. And it's been all downhill ever since." As it turns out, the Baltimore-born naturalist was meant not only to marvel over birds, but to infect others with his passion.

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- The foreign minister of Taiwan and two other top officials resigned yesterday over a botched attempt to win diplomatic recognition from Papua New Guinea, a scandal that has stirred public outrage against the outgoing government just two weeks before it is to step down. Taipei was embarrassed by the public disclosure that about $30 million, which had been intended for Papua New Guinea in exchange for its switching diplomatic allegiance from Beijing, had disappeared. While the resignations had little practical impact - the entire government leaves May 20 when President-elect Ma Ying-jeou is inaugurated - they underscore the depth of the scandal, the most severe during President Chen Shui-bian's eight years in office.
