New Orleans.--The biblical Garden of Eden always seemed to me an unbelievably boring place, begging for vandalism. Every day the same weather, no sex, no fruit, no thought, no language. Adam sees Eve. Eve sees Adam. Nothing to say. Nothing to do. No hello. No goodbye. Keep circling. God always spying. No wonder they went nuts. Went for the nuts. Blame the nuts.Now comes ''The Lost Book of Paradise,'' restored by David Rosenberg from old manuscripts and ancient longings, a poetic rendering of a paradise stormy with emotional deprivation and strife.

Two years ago I moved to Baltimore, where the roads are littered with pot holes (and litter) - I should know because I've had to circle them to find parking. Two of my housemates have had their cars broken into, my high taxes make my escrow payments exceed my mortgage, and a train bellows its horn in my neighborhood at all hours of the night. So it surprises me that in my first public request of this city, I am simply asking for it's leaders to do nothing at all. I am a 33-year-old professional, and I am a demographic that every city fights to have.

News reports of the horrific flooding on the Portuguese island of Madeira refer to it as a popular tourist destination, and it is -- if you happen to be British or German. It is not so well known here, even among Americans affluent enough to take vacations abroad. In fact, before the scary videos of the mudslides hit television over the weekend, I would bet most Americans had never heard of Madeira, one of the most beautiful places on earth. And I don't make such an assertion because my father was born there, or because my visit to Madeira rekindled some strange, almost haunting bond with the place, as if I'd been there before.

Vacation means warm beaches, breezy campgrounds, posh spas - a break from daily stress and a great way to unwind and leave our cares behind. Unless you have a pet. Fido or Fluffy, beloved as they are, can throw a wrench into the best-laid vacation plans. Few of us want to leave our pets in a traditional kennel's cages for days or weeks at a time, and traveling with them can be difficult, if not impossible. But that's changing as more people are taking pets with them or finding what's been deemed "luxury boarding," which turns the traditional kennel on its ear with accommodations that mimic home or even a fancy hotel for humans.

ST. JOHN'S, Antigua -- Nobody here wants to talk to strangers about the yacht that was towed into the harbor 10 days ago with four cadavers aboard, seated as they were when they were murdered -- an American couple and two English crewmen.This is the height of the tourist season. Images are important.The England vs. Leeward Islands cricket matches. The harbors that attract some of the world's most expensive sailing yachts. The hundreds of soft, white-sand beaches.Those are the images they want.

I t is possible in this day and age to fly south in December and three hours later land in a city where you can sit comfortably in your T-shirt and linen jacket and eat your dinner at a cafe under palm trees and still enjoy the protections of the U.S. Constitution, which is a wonderful, wonderful thing. Paradise, in fact. The problem with paradise is that it's temporary: You don't belong here, and the neighbors are nobody you care to know, so it's only blissful for a week or so. You're in a city built on sandy marsh in a boom period, and when you look around at the freeway, the office parks, the malls, the curvy streets of houses, your hotel, you see nothing that predates 1980, nothing that distinguishes this city from Scottsdale or Fort Lauderdale or any other suburb in America, which is exhilarating to some people but not to you. And the people around you are all in the throes of relaxation.

MONTSERRAT is a Leeward Island in the Caribbean, a self-governing dependency of Britain. Its 39 square miles supported nearly 12,000 people in a lush, green, tropical paradise with hills above, a playground for the rich.Until two years ago, that is, when the Soufriere Hills volcano, four centuries dormant, roared to life. Now villages are gone. Much of the south is covered in ash. Clouds rise 10,000 feet. It may yet blow. Of some 4,000 residents huddling in the north of the island, half were being ferried by the British navy to the neighboring island of Antigua.

The moment had passed more than three weeks ago for Dez Wells and Maryland. Had Wells hit one of the two shots he missed in the closing seconds of Maryland's one-point loss to then-No. 18 Connecticut in the season opener at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y., the 6-foot-5 junior guard would have been noticed on the national stage and the Terps might have been ranked. Instead, both went into a prolonged funk. As Monday night turned into Tuesday morning here at the Paradise Jam, Wells and the Terps seized the moment that passed in New York.

ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands - For a group that came here on what its coach called a "business" trip, the Maryland men's basketball team certainly found plenty of opportunities for pleasure during its six-day stay at the Paradise Jam. There were the catamarans the Terps took onto the Caribbean on Saturday after Maryland beat Marist in the opening round. There were more impromptu activities, such as the wall-ball beach games Evan Smotrycz and Jake Layman invented with one of the team managers at the resort where the Terps , their families and many of their fans were staying.

The Maryland men's basketball team came here last week with its collective confidence shaken. Coming off a home defeat to Oregon State last Sunday, the Terps arrived with an urgency to put their early-season problems behind them at the Paradise Jam. When the Terps return to Maryland, they won't mind trading warm breezes and blue skies for cold weather and rainy skies. All is well in their little world, especially after holding off previously unbeaten Providence, 56-52, in Monday night's championship game at the University of Virgin Islands' Sports and Fitness Center.

- The transition to a different role is nothing new for Maryland junior guard Nick Faust. Ever since he came to College Park after being one of the top scorers in the state at City, Faust has been asked to give the Terps something that they didn't have. As a freshman, Faust was asked by Terps coach Mark Turgeon to play point guard when then-sophomore Pe'Shon Howard missed the early part of the season with a broken foot and later suffered a season-ending knee injury. Faust had not played the position since middle school.

ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands -- A few observations from Sunday's Maryland-Northern Iowa game in the semifinals of the Paradise Jam and thoughts about Monday's championship game against Providence: ** The margin of victory Sunday wasn't a true indication of how competitive the game was , and the fact that the Panthers are not a big-name opponent might hide that this is one of Mark Turgeon's better wins since coming to College Park. Truth is, this was a game Maryland could have easily lost down the stretch after having an 11-point lead cut to two. After losing to Oregon State at home a week ago, the Terps were almost in a must-win situation in terms of not having fans continue to turn on Turgeon.

Welcome to a second season of Morning Shootaround. We will follow the Terps throughout the 2013-14 season, but in this space this year, we will provide a look ahead, rather than back. We will try to analyze Maryland's strengths and weaknesses, as well as those of its upcoming opponent. We also hope to provide quotes and anecdotes from practices to give some idea of what Mark Turgeon and his team are doing. Here are a few things to look for as the Terps get ready to play Northern Iowa in the semifinals of the Paradise Jam in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands.

ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands - With each game this season, Morgan State had moved closer to its first win. From a 39-point blowout loss at Ohio State in the opener to Wednesday's three-point heartbreaker at home to Ohio, the Bears seemed close to victory as they headed here for the Paradise Jam. The positive progression continued, for a little while, Friday night against La Salle at the University of the Virgin Islands' Sports and Fitness Center,...

ST. THOMAS, U.S. Virgin Islands - There must be something about playing in the Caribbean that brings out the best - or the beast - in Maryland men's basketball sophomore Jake Layman. On a trip last summer to the Bahamas, where the Terps played three games against competition made up mostly of older, local players, the 6-foot-8 swingman was the team's breakout star in a Maryland sweep. And on Friday here at the Paradise Jam, Layman was a big reason why Maryland broke out of another early-game struggle against Marist to run away from the Red Foxes, 68-43 . The Terps (2-2)
