Rabbi Daniel Plotkin was in the marching band at the University of Wisconsin and one of his highlights came when the football team took part in the Rose Bowl parade in 1994 - the school's first appearance in the game in 31 years. When Plotkin became the rabbi at Beth Shalom in Columbia less than three years ago, he soon learned of several other congregants with dormant musical backgrounds but no outlet to keep sharp or exhibit their skills. With the assistance of Steve Cohen, who joined the congregation in 2005, Plotkin created Divine Intervention, an eclectic mix of musicians who held An Evening at the Coffee House on Jan. 25 as a fundraiser for Beth Shalom.

In Baltimore, he drives cars around the lot of an automobile auction company near Glen Burnie.Despite more than a year of searching, Mr. Plotkin has found little more than unskilled service jobs. Like so many other engineers arriving in Baltimore from the Soviet Union, Mr. Plotkin's language problems and the recession have blocked him from the kind of work he did at home.

Take a long, smooth sip of Baileys or some other cream liqueur and it's hard to remember there was a time when the only way to get such an extravagantly rich liqueur was to mix it yourself. But almost three decades ago, the folks at Baileys revolutionized the notion of cream liqueur by introducing their Original Irish Cream. Robert Plotkin, a Tucson, Ariz.-based beverage consultant and expert on spirits, was "knee-deep in the business" at the time, bartending at high-end establishments in Arizona.

Hardly a day goes by anymore without another round of dot-com company layoffs. Last week, it was at CMGI-controlled Engage Inc., an online ad firm based in Andover, Mass. About 550 jobs will be cut in coming months, the company said. And last month, a record 10,459 dot-com workers nationwide lost their jobs, up 19 percent from November, according to Challenger, Gray & Christmas, an outplacement company in Chicago that has been tracking the layoffs. It has been a rocky time in what was once considered paradise.

CARSON, Calif. - The Maryland men's soccer team has ended its previous two seasons with a pair of bitter one-goal defeats in the national semifinals. Last night was perhaps an even more agonizing loss. With 48 seconds remaining in the second overtime, Indiana midfielder Danny O'Rourke sent a cross to the right post. A streaking John Michael Hayden headed the ball past Terps senior goalkeeper Noah Palmer to give Indiana a 3-2 overtime win in the College Cup semifinals at Home Depot Center.
