Women who have had their ovaries removed are twice as likely to later develop Parkinson's disease, according to new research.

The study, presented Wednesday at the American Academy of Neurology's annual meeting in Miami Beach, Fla., is the first to show a direct link between Parkinson's and ovary removal, a procedure known as an oophorectomy, said lead author Walter Rocca.

He has weathered three suspensions from the PGA Tour because of behavioral problems. He and his reputation have felt the chill of cold shoulders from his peers.So it follows that yesterday, in the 124th British Open, at the birthplace of golf, in wind that gusted at 52 mph, Daly found himself in a position where he again needed to overcome.

These are strange days for Mo Rocca. A fake news correspondent for the fake news program The Daily Show, he's also a real correspondent for the real news program Today. He's often tapped to be a pundit by super-serious MSNBC, CNN and the Fox News Channel, which are regularly the butt of jokes on The Daily Show. He's interviewed about pop culture on VH1's I Love the '80s and this week's I Love the '70s. He's a regular on NPR's quiz show Wait Wait ... Don't Tell Me. And tonight at 8, he is the host of Smoking Gun TV on Court TV. It's a sophomoric TV version of the Web site (thesmo kinggun.

The president of the real estate group battling to defeat the Robey administration's plan to increase the Howard property transfer tax has resigned, just as the fight is coming to a head. Rick LaRocca said yesterday that his action is not related to the tax issue that will be the subject of a key public hearing tonight in Howard County Council chambers, but he agreed that the timing of his decision is awkward. County Executive James N. Robey wants state legislators to approve an increase in the transfer tax to raise $215 million for school construction over eight years, and then pay off the debt.

Tina Rocca-Lundstrom dips her head toward the candle dubbed Meditation and takes a sniff. The label says it contains patchouli and ylang-ylang, pure essential oils. True enough, but Rocca-Lundstrom, with her trained chemist's nose, also picks up a hint of synthetic perfume. "None of this is real," she says. "None of it." Controversy is intruding into the mellow, lavender-scented world of aromatherapy, the quasi-science of smells that purportedly enhance health, mood and brain function.
