A mature, egg-bearing northern snakehead has been discovered by scientists in a river just south of Annapolis, raising the possibility that low salinity in the Chesapeake Bay this year may have allowed the invasive fish to escape from the Potomac River. The 23-inch snakehead was found in the Rhode River last Thursday by biologists from the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center taking annual fish samples by net. "The water was very murky with a lot of sediment. When a fish is that large, you assume it's a carp," said Stacey Havard, a Smithsonian biologist.

Dr. Marion Thomas Jenkins, 77, the Texas anesthesiologist who tried to resuscitate both President John F. Kennedy and his assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, 31 years ago, died Monday at his home in Dallas of stomach cancer. He and a colleague devised a procedure that is used every day in operating rooms around the world when they found that by giving an intravenous saline solution to surgical patients with strong blood pressure and pulse, the need for a blood transfusion was reduced.

Q. Can you tell me what to do about sunblock? I have become increasingly sensitive to the sun, although I always wear sunblock. The problem is that I seem to be allergic to the ingredients that make sunblock work. I have even tried hypoallergenic brands, but my face gets bright red and puffs up no matter which brand I try. Could you recommend any kind of sunblock that won't ruin my skin? The skin on my face seems the most sensitive. I always wear a big hat when I am out in the sun, but even so, my face breaks out. When I use sunblock on my arms and my legs, however, I don't seem to have the same reaction.

Water can block labor painAbout a third of all women who go through labor suffer severe lower back pain in the process. Doctors have tried without much success to relieve this pain with any number of drugs, including Novocaine. That's why this Danish study, which finds that water injections can dull the pain, is so exciting. Doctors at the Aalborg Hospital in Denmark injected sterile water or a saline solution in the aching backs of 272 women going through labor. Each woman was then asked to rate her pain on a scale of 0 to 10 -- with 0 standing for "painless" and 10 for "unbearable pain."

but lived.Fourteen years ago she survived an abortion when her mother was 7 months pregnant, the young woman told an audience of about 2,000 people at Loyola College in Baltimore Thursday.To some of the audience members, the pert California teen-ager was just good entertainment. Dressed in boots and a tie-dyed minidress,she sang contemporary Christian hits popularized by pop star Amy Grant.But to most of the people at Thursday's gathering, Gianna is the reason they oppose abortion. In the last year, National Right-to-Life and other anti-abortion groups have promoted Jessen in literatureand at church rallies as a living symbol of their cause, a fresh-faced youngster they see as proof that each of the 1.6 million abortionsperformed in this country every year kills a human being.

The near-record amount of runoff that coursed down the Susquehanna River and into the Chesapeake Bay last spring has created the lowest salinity levels seen in the upper bay since 1985, when water monitoring stations were established. Gauges at the Conowingo Dam registered 5 trillion gallons of discharge during the three-month gusher that ended in May, enough to replace the water in the upper bay every 30 days, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The spring total is surpassed only by 1993, when 5.5 trillion gallons gushed from the river's mouth.

It's getting to be the time of year when everyone seems to have a runny nose. Sometimes it's a cold or allergies. And sometimes it's sinusitis, or inflamed linings in the sinus cavities. The cavities become blocked and infected. Dr. Alan Oshinsky, an otolaryngologist at Mercy Medical Center, says it's not always easy to self-diagnose sinusitis, but there are treatments that can help. Question: What is sinusitis, and who is likely to develop it? Answer: Sinusitis means inflammation and infection in the paranasal sinuses.

Hey, breast augmentation. Meet the lip implant. A new procedure called FulFil Lip from California-based Evera Medical, has just been approved for testing by the Food and Drug Administration. Much like a breast implant, the FulFil Lip is a balloon that can be filled with saline and then inserted into the lip. A micro-valve prevents any fluid from leaking. Now that could be embarrassing during a first kiss. Outside the U.S., the company already markets VeraFil, a saline implant that plumps skin around the eye. Right now, there are myriad ways to inflate your pucker - from injecting collagen from a dead person to grafting fat from your caboose.

WASHINGTON -- A lack of rainfall in the Chesapeake region this year could be a mixed blessing for the bay in coming months, scientists said. Baltimore received 0.18 inches of rain last month, the lowest March rainfall recorded in the city since 1870, when National Weather Service records begin. Rainfall this week did little to make up for low year-to-date regional totals, which can benefit as well as harm bay life. Low precipitation reduces pollutant runoff from land surrounding the bay, but it can also increase salinity in the bay over time, scientists said.

I know that some women, hearing of the dangers of silicone implants and not being aware of a good alternative, will avoid mammography, self-examinations, visits to their physicians -- actions that could save their lives.

Signs that global warming is changing patterns of rain, snow and ocean currents that drive the climate system were reported yesterday by scientists monitoring ocean saltiness. According to oceanographer Ruth Curry, sea surface waters in tropical regions have become significantly saltier in the past 50 years, while surface waters at high latitudes in Arctic regions have become much fresher. These changes in salinity seem to have accelerated in the 1990s. "This is the signature of increasing evaporation and precipitation" caused by warming, Curry said, "and a sign of melting ice at the poles.

Looming ahead, in the middle of the dry brown flatness, is a vast expanse of sparking blue stretching as far as the eye can see. Checking the map, the traveler identifies this as the Salton Sea, a 380-square-mile lake created accidentally nearly 100 years ago when Colorado River floodwaters overran irrigation canals...
