CLAYTON, N.M. -- From the moment their children left for school each day until the time they returned home, Anthony Giraitis said he and his wife, Shirley, worried.They worried about the influence of gangs in the Albuquerque, N.M., schools. They worried about drive-by shootings. They worried that their girls might be assaulted.Then, this summer, Mr. Giraitis (pronounced Gratis) had a revelation of sorts. It came in the form of a newspaper advertisement beckoning transfer students to the northeastern New Mexico farm and ranch town of Clayton.

The power? That blunt-force ability to lay wood to a baseball and propel it 400, 420, 450 feet? He had it even when he was a boy. Came from God, as far as he's concerned. Harnessing it? Well, that's the work of Chris Davis' life. There's a paradoxical quality to the Orioles' first baseman, who has emerged this season as one of baseball's most fearsome sluggers, a likely All-Star starter who leads the majors with 22 home runs. Growing up in East Texas, Davis was like a puppy with big paws, bowling over everything.

WALTHAM, Mass. -- He talked about the environment, the Internet, Judaism, and Christianity, whatever the thousands who came to Brandeis University to see him Friday and yesterday wanted to talk about. But in the end, the Dalai Lama talked about the things he and his admirers are interested in most: Tibet, nonviolence, the power of peace.Students, refugees, senior scholars -- the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize recipient won them all with his combination of personal humility and cosmic consciousness.

In today's high-tech world, it's easy to forget to unplug and unwind.

It's rare that Susan Laugen gets depressed.She remained positive when diagnosed with breast cancer and treated in 1992, and made her friends laugh from her hospital bed when the cancer recurred in 1994 and again last summer. She kept active by joining a band, and she began making jewelry in hopes of earning a living from her craft.Then her studio was burglarized."It just hasn't been a good year," Laugen said. "I thought 1997 would get a little better since I just went through surgery in the summer but the robbery was like a slap in the face."

You see them all around town. They hang above or below "for sale" signs, proclaiming that this house comes with a "one-year warranty." Peace of mind for sellers. Peace of mind for buyers.Well, maybe.The Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation is forming a study group to examine home warranties issued at the time of purchase of an existing home.Unlike new-home warranties, which must be approved by the department and post a performance bond or letter of credit, companies that offer warranties in resales do not have to file with the state, and the issuers aren't subject to any approval or bonding requirements.

"There is a part of me that has a romantic notion to disappear," says Deepak Chopra. He could step hard on the gas in his BMW and just keep going, going. Yes, Chopra admits, sometimes even he longs to escape the responsibilities that come with being a best-selling author, New Age high priest and the human bridge spanning ancient Indian healing and high-tech Western medicine. "I consider myself somebody who offers the tools for inspiration," the 58-year-old lapsed endocrinologist adds.

Most of you who took this month's informal SUNDIAL survey find work more stressful than your personal lives.The survey of which area of your lives gave you peace of mind was less clearcut, however. Though 190 of you said your personal lives gave you peace of mind, 109 answered that "neither"personal life nor job did so.And 37 of you found the most peace of mind in your jobs.The results, for both men and women, are below. Remember that SUNDIAL is an informal survey, not a scientific poll.Gender.

Baltimore Country Club officials were on hand, too. Ditto the press and other elected officials.

These are perilous times for customers of airlines, cruise lines and tour companies that may be financially wobbly. When Aloha Airlines, ATA and GrandLuxe Rail Journeys this year stopped operations, thousands of travelers were stranded - and collectively lost millions of dollars. Although still rare, industry bankruptcies are growing in a tough economy that has driven Americans to cut back on travel. How do you protect yourself? The single best step is to pay with a credit card. Never use cash, a check or a debit card to buy or make deposits on a flight, tour, hotel, cruise or vacation package.

At 0800 hours yesterday, the lobby of the Veterans Affairs Baltimore Medical Center was filled with dozens of soldiers recently back from Iraq, dressed in their combat fatigues and reporting for yet another one of their duties - to be sure they are holding up both physically and mentally from what they went through in the war zone. About 100 Maryland National Guard troops who returned from missions in Iraq in February and March had time to sit down with medical professionals - doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants - to discuss any enduring aches and pains, any war-related stress they might have.

Picture yourself at the cash register at Best Buy, about to plunk down the plastic for a flat-screen television, when the salesperson asks if you want what amounts to an extended warranty. It's a tough question to answer and one that many of us hear often. You have little time to make a decision. And you may be reluctant to spend another couple of hundred dollars on an already pricey item for insurance you hope you'll never need. But you also worry that if it breaks, it could cost you even more to fix or replace it. Whether you're purchasing a television or a washing machine, you often have the option of buying an extended warranty, which often are called service or protection plans.

I recently had an issue with Princess Cruise Lines about their charges for shore excursions. In Belize, we decided to go cave tubing, for which Princess charged us $99 each. People on the same bus that took us to the place said they booked the excursion online for $45 per person. Isn't Princess gouging the passenger? That's a definite maybe. When you book a shore excursion, essentially you are doing the same thing you do when you book any packaged tour, whether it's cave tubing in Belize or 10 days in Europe: You're leaving the details to someone else.

By agreeing to a two-year extension on its existing contract, local members of the International Longshoremen's Association have given the Port of Baltimore a big boost -- an assist that should help port officials lure more cargo business up the Chesapeake. That will mean more jobs for ILA workers, who have seen manpower on the docks plunge in the past 15 years.The 955-144 vote to approve the contract illustrates the new, cooperative attitude that local ILA leaders brought to the bargaining table.

Q: I'm looking to buy a Breitling watch, which I believe is Swiss.Is there a street in Switzerland or some other country where you can get Breitling watches cheaply?A: Breitling watches are indeed Swiss, but according to the president of the New York office of the Federation of the Swiss Watch Industry, Peter Laetsch, there is nowhere in Switzerland where watches are discounted.There are many places around the world where such discounts are given -- Hong Kong is a leading example. Some discounts may indeed be genuine, but there is always the risk that you may be buying a counterfeit product, a thriving business these days for high-priced items.

We hear so often that Americans are poor savers that we forget there are plenty of workers who amass sizable sums with little fanfare. They might be in the next cubicle, next door or next-of-kin. It's not that they save because they make tons of money. Many good savers have modest incomes. They just don't spend every penny of it. Savers say they don't deny themselves the fun things in life. They spend on things that are important to them but don't waste dollars on the other stuff. But you can't help but wonder: Why are some people such good savers while others - even those with healthy six-figure incomes - live from paycheck to paycheck?

Often, the public conversation about Hispanics centers on illegal immigration. That will be an ongoing political debate, to be certain. But in business circles, the rapidly growing Hispanic population represents some $5 billion in spending power in Utah alone. There are presumably 5 billion reasons Utah businesses would want to capitalize on that potential. - Deseret Morning News (Salt Lake City, Utah) Through a mix of economics, diplomacy and the threat of military action, the U.S. has tried to isolate Iran's ruling mullahs.
