:TC WITH ALL the hoopla about affirmative action, the public is scarcely aware of a federal program that discriminates against blacks. You could look it up -- but not under the "affirmative action" heading. Instead, check out the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986, which mandates a minimum 10-year sentence for anyone convicted of selling 50 grams or more of crack cocaine or possessing that amount with the intent to sell. By contrast, dealers in powder cocaine have to be convicted of selling 100 times the amount of crack to trigger the same penalty.

MOSCOW -- Message to Willi Syndikis of Meckenheim, Germany: Dora Brodyanskaya of Moscow received your box of food. She is most grateful, even though she says there's a sting to accepting gifts from the former enemy, vanquished by the Red Army 45 years ago."I confess it, there's a little residue of feeling left from the war," she said.But Mrs. Brodyanskaya, a fragile 86-year-old widow who moves with difficulty around her cozy, two-room apartment, didn't really need the aid.In fact, Yelena Marukhina, the 30-year-old Red Cross nurse who delivered the box, needed it more than Mrs. Brodyanskaya.

Baby-powder softand so much stronger than I remember it being last week.There's me on this neutral phoneconnected and disconnected,the baby blooming in spring so soonI want to press her here against my earbefore the bloom passes.

In recent weeks, FBI agents investigating the anthrax attacks that killed five people last fall have questioned a dozen biodefense scientists at Fort Detrick about former colleagues who have come under suspicion, according to employees of the Army's research institute in Frederick. At the same time, agents were poring over entry records to the high-security laboratory at the Army's Dugway Proving Ground in Utah, the only U.S. facility known to produce the kind of dry, fine-particle anthrax powder like that used in the mail attacks.

I've been searching for Dutch-process cocoa. In the supermarkets, I just see Nestle and Hershey's cocoa, neither of which says "Dutch" or "processed with alkali." Chocolate liquor has two principal components - cocoa solids and cocoa butter - and in 1828, a Dutchman named Coenraad Van Houten invented a method for separating the two. The newly independent cocoa solids also could be pulverized to make a fine powder with lots of chocolate flavor but little fat: cocoa powder. Van Houten also invented a process by which cocoa powder, which is naturally quite acidic, was treated with an alkaline to neutralize the flavor and deepen the color.

What should women over 40 be doing differently than women under 40 when it comes to their makeup and skin care regimes? Women's magazines run list after list of beauty tricks for the "mature" woman. Women over 40 worry that they should be doing something different and think they need new products and techniques, but that is just not the truth.Makeup application and skin care totally depend on the woman -- what kind of makeup look she wants to achieve and what kind of skin problems she's having.
