Ocean City -- They've only recently set up housekeeping in Maryland, but already they have a lot of important friends.Brown pelicans, once seriously endangered by pesticides, are nesting on South Point Spoils in Sinepuxent Bay off Ocean City's coast. The four breeding pairs that call the island home are pioneers of a sort: The small, undeveloped island is the northernmost point on the Atlantic Coast where the pelicans are known to nest, and state environmental workers are monitoring the birds closely.

Julia Roberts is certainly beautiful, but she isn't an actress. And "The Pelican Brief" is certainly handsome, but it isn't a movie. It isn't even brief!The most depressing example of routinized, button-pushing filmmaking of the week, it's an almost featureless exercise in chase mechanics and posturing that masquerades as performance.The movie gets in trouble almost from the get-go: For a thriller, it has a premise so lame it defies comprehension. Roberts, playing a young law student named "Darby Shaw" (phony-cute names are a dead giveaway of an impoverished authorial imagination)

The Camel DancesThe camel had her heart set on becoming a ballet dancer."To make every movement a thing of grace and beauty," said the Camel. "That is my one and only desire."Again and again she practiced her pirouettes, her releves, and her arabesques. She repeated the five basic positions a hundred times each day. She worked for long months under the hot desert sun. Her feet were blistered, and her body ached with fatigue, but not once did she think of stopping.At last the Camel said, "Now I am a dancer."

Recoil 2410 flashlight [Pelican, $59] As the days get shorter, the need for a reliable light source increases, especially if your eyes don't see as well as they once did. Pelican, the company famous for almost indestructible watertight and airtight equipment cases, has come up with a dandy flashlight for folks on the water. Flashlight seems too ordinary a name for the neon-yellow Recoil 2410. Start with the white, laser-like beam of light it generates. Unlike many flashlights that scatter light, the Recoil's entire beam is as tightly focused as a Jedi's light saber.

Portable screen for PS one provides sharp picture, sound Putting together a quality portable screen for Sony's miniature PlayStation console, the PS one, is apparently more difficult than it might seem, but Pelican Accessories seems to have gotten it right with the second version of its Game Screen. The Game Screen, roughly the same shape and size of the PS one itself, plugs into the back of the console, allowing you to play without a television. Thanks to the included car adapter, the monitor becomes the perfect accessory for road trips.

Just when we all were getting over the irony of a team named the “Saints” getting stung in that tawdry NFL bounty scandal, the transplanted New Orleans Hornets of the NBA have announced they will change their nickname to the “Pelicans.” The reason is high-minded, of course. The brown Pelican is the state bird of Louisiana, and it became emblematic of the area's comeback from both Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill. Proponents feel it will remind a new generation about the importance of the environment and the resilience of the gulf coast region.

BARREN ISLAND - The baby pelicans hatching here this summer are beastly things, with featherless purple bodies and fleshy pouches that quiver under their beaks. They would resemble lizards, if they weren't so ugly. But in the eyes of wildlife ecologist Dave Brinker, they're a beautiful and welcome addition to the Chesapeake Bay - an encouraging sign that the bay's ecosystem is strong enough to attract more species. Spring marked the first time that the once-endangered brown pelicans nested on this spit of sand and scrub in the bay southwest of Cambridge.
