Addressing a longtime need in the organization, the Orioles selected Florida high school shortstop Manny Machado with the third overall pick in Monday night's first round of the 2010 amateur draft. Machado, who hit .639 with 12 homers and 68 RBIs in 29 games for Brito Miami Private, was considered the top prep position player in the draft. "If Machado stays at shortstop, you have a potential All-Star offensively who is no worse than average with the glove," said Keith Law, a writer for ESPN.

While the Johns Hopkins football team ushers in a new season, Ryan Rice is also grasping something new: his position. For the previous three years, Rice lined up at cornerback, where he made 87 tackles, intercepted four balls, and broke up 12 passes in his career. Last fall, he had a career-high three interceptions and added 27 tackles and four pass break-ups. Those numbers contributed to him being named a second-team preseason All-American by D3football.com. But this year, Rice is moving to safety - a switch he has embraced.

A team of Johns Hopkins University undergraduates was named a finalist in a competition to build a real-life version of the tricorder, a fictional device used on the TV show "Star Trek" to diagnose health ailments. The stakes are high — the Hopkins team could win a portion of a $10 million prize sponsored by wireless communications company Qualcomm and end up with a device that could be sold for medical use. But the competition for the Qualcomm Tricorder Xprize is fierce. The Hopkins team is the only undergraduate group, and it faces nine other teams from around the world, including from India, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.

As millions of Americans prepare to feast on football and fowl, Legg Mason Inc. yesterday served up its 15th annual Thanksgiving List, a selection of a dozen stocks that historically has left investors' portfolios fatter than Legg's mutual funds.Many investment firms offer selected stock portfolios for their clients at various times of the year. Legg Mason's has attracted a following beyond the company's regional base, probably because of its consistent performance: The list has bettered the Standard & Poor's 500 index 12 out of the 15 years since its introduction, with a 28.7 percent average annual return, compared with the S&P's average 16.9 percent annual return, assuming reinvestment of dividends in both cases.

Darra and David Williams were running out of hope for having a baby without cystic fibrosis when they heard about technology capable of helping them select healthy embryos - as well as their child's gender. At an Irvine, Calif., clinic, now-familiar technology was used to fertilize her eggs with his sperm. But in a Brave New World twist, doctors at Coastal Fertility Medical Center then pulled a cell from each resulting embryo to test it for defects such as the cystic fibrosis that runs in David's family, as well as for its sex. Four were healthy - three boys and a girl.

In three consecutive days, Matt Hobgood won a national baseball award, attended his high school's spring sports banquet and was selected fifth overall by the Orioles in Tuesday's amateur draft. "If you'd sit me down and asked how to plan out the week, I don't think you could plan it out any better than that," said Hobgood, a hard-throwing right-hander from Southern California who became just the second high school pitcher in two decades to be selected by the Orioles with their first pick.

The players, managers and coaches should select the starters for baseball's All-Star Game, respondents to "It's Your Call" said this weekend.The 373 callers opposed selection of the starters by fans (57 to 43 percent) and felt even more strongly that the media should not select the team (76 to 24 percent). But they approved of the players, managers and coaches (56 to 44 percent) making the choices, which currently are made by fans."It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically, as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.

Since Charles Darwin wrote "The Origin of Species" more than 150 years ago, it's been known that nature's selection creates some species and ends others. But researchers at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County suggest that another actor is responsible for driving wedges in animal populations to create new species - mothers themselves. A study published last month in the journal Ecology Letters suggests that female creatures' sexual preferences may launch an evolutionary process that can lead to the creation of new species.

Councilman Daryl Jones, a Severn Democrat, will introduce a resolution at Monday's council session that would make the county attorney's job an elected position. Currently, the county attorney is appointed by the county executive. Jones also is introducing an alternative resolution that would ask voters to decide if the County Council should have the ability to confirm whoever is appointed county attorney.

While sitting at the L-shaped bar inside Remington's Parts & Labor on a recent Wednesday evening, it was easy to get distracted. There was no doubt we were in a restaurant attached to a premium butcher shop: Beautiful hunks of meat were on full display, cooking on the large, open grill that greets eyes and noses upon entering. An employee prepared more meat with a gliding slicer that moved so gracefully that I could not help but wonder its cost. Jimi Hendrix's “Purple Haze,” played at a level that still encouraged conversation, added to the atmosphere's unstuffy comfort.

Select fresh apricots based first on aroma and then color. A whiff of apricot fragrance is more important than smooth, blushing skin. Choose fruit with a good, even color that is free of bruises or nicks. Never select fruit tinged with green. These might rot before they ripen.Store apricots in an airtight bag or container because they readily pick up flavors from other fruits.For the best flavor and nutrient content, eat apricots while they're still slightly firm.Pub Date: 8/09/98

"That's why every time we play in Houston, I get booed," he said.

The myriad restaurants and shops all fight for attention with colorful signs and promises of limited-time deals. It's enough to give you a headache. But tucked away in the Enchanted Forest Shopping Center - behind the defunct theme park, around the corner from a grocery store and out of view from the pike - is a bar and restaurant that is clearly interested in providing an experience not typically expected at a strip mall.
