Growing up in West Baltimore's Edmondson Village, Steven Richardson used to watch intently as his father, an automobile mechanic, repaired cars. He admired how deftly his father worked with every part, each as important as the next. It's a fitting tribute today, then, that Richardson has followed in his father's footsteps, working with mechanical parts, but on a much tinier level. He's a horologist, a watchmaker, with his own line of high-end, collector-quality timepieces. "I basically grew up in my father's shop," says Richardson, 36. "I was always interested in putting something together."

Gerba was surprised to discover what we track into the house on our footwear. "I'm starting to make myself paranoid," he said. "It seems like we step in a lot more poop than I thought." Gerba is a professor in the University of Arizona's Department of Soil, Water and Environmental Science. He's spent years studying how humans spread microbes around and "share" them wherever they go. But when he was asked by the Rockport Co. whether he thought throwing shoes in the washer made hygienic sense, he told them, "I don't know.
