UPDATE (11:55 a.m.): The hearing was abruptly interrupted, and the camera went to a blank wall as a result of a disturbance in the hearing room at about 11:55 a.m. as the last questioner was addressing a question to Rupert Murdoch.  A replay of video showed a  spectator approaching Rupert Murdoch with a plate of white shaving cream. A CNN staffer in the room reports that the shaving cream hit Murdoch "squarely in the face. " Murdoch's wife, Wendi Deng, leapt to her husband's defense by throwing a punch at the man. Murdoch did not seem injured, and the spectator was removed by police.

After three years mixing, bottling and boxing natural personal care products to be sold in local shops at their home in Annapolis, Robert and Zoe Benzinger are poised for bigger things. For the first time their company, eco-armour, will be among the exhibitors starting Wednesday at Natural Products Expo East 2014 in Baltimore, billed as the largest trade show on the East Coast devoted to goods made from ingredients found in nature treated with relatively little processing. The industry says sales of natural food for people and pets, diet supplements, and cosmetics and grooming products are growing about 8 percent a year.

The Orioles have been lobbing some tasty pies. For the past two years, outfielder Adam Jones has been smashing shaving cream pies into teammates' faces to celebrate big wins. This year, the pie smashes have gotten a lot more fun thanks to a daily delivery from Baltimore's Dangerously Delicious Pies.  Notice catcher Caleb Joseph's sugary sweet grin in the photo the team posted to Instagram following last night's 4-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays.   People with a faceful of shaving cream don't look quite so happy.

On Saturday, Taylor Teagarden hit a walk-off home run in the 13th inning to beat the Detroit Tigers after being activated from the 60-day disabled list earlier that day. After the game, Teagarden went on for a live interview with the Fox announcers in the booth, where his teammates proceeded to hit him in the face with a shaving cream pie. While wiping his face off, Teagarden said a four-letter word that is a synonym for 'poop' on...

WE CONTINUE to see evidence of an alarming decline in the quality of our nation's criminals. Consider the man who attempted to rob a mini-mart in the town of Vernon, Conn., as reported in a Journal Inquirer story sent in by alert reader Dan Thompson. The robber elected to wear a disguise, which was a good idea, since he was a regular customer of the store. The problem was the particular disguise he picked. Shaving cream. Yes. According to police, the man walked into the store with his face lathered in shaving cream, apparently believing that this made him unrecognizable.

SOME BOLLMAN Bridge Elementary School pupils and parents recently got boxes full of shaving cream, sidewalk chalk, board games and magnets to take home. But the items were not for playtime or arts and crafts; instead, they were meant to enhance the children's reading skills. "Anything that seems like play is really motivating," said Toni Pinkard, a reading specialist at the school. Why use the same old pencil and paper to practice writing words when instead you can squirt blobs of shaving cream on a table and trace letters with your fingers?

When the ball came off Orioles left fielder Xavier Avery's bat in the eighth inning of Friday night's game against the Indians, he wasn't sure whether he got enough of it for his first major-league home run. He came out of the batter's box sprinting - thinking he could get a triple if the ball hit off the left-field wall - but as he rounded first, he looked up and saw his sprint could turn into a trot. “I looked up I was like, 'Oh snap,'” Avery said. “I caught that one.” Avery's solo homer proved to be the winning run in the Orioles' 9-8 victor over Cleveland on Friday night, snapping the O's three-game losing streak.

People keep asking me about if I'm surprised about the Orioles' quick start. The answer is simple: Yes. Completely surprised. I can give you plenty of reasons this team should not be winning. Yet it is. Saturday night was another example. The Orioles had just six hits, they committed two errors and their starter couldn't get out of the sixth. Yet the Tampa Bay Rays' starter couldn't get out of the fifth. And the Rays committed a franchise-record-tying five errors -- and the Orioles score three runs by taking advantage of those.

This is a tender-hearted time of year, and it is easy to reach into our wallets for the children of the poor, or the homeless and the hungry. But there is another group that deserves our charity at Christmas, and it is the elderly, many of whom have out-lived those who might care for them at the holidays. This is the season for "Be a Santa to a Senior," my new favorite cause. Organized by Paul and Laurie Hogan, founders of Home Instead, which provides non-medical, in-home care for seniors, the program has collected more than a million gifts for more than 700,000 elderly in the country over the past eight years, including about 9,500 seniors in Maryland.

I am waiting to hear from Fox Sports on what happened at the end of its telecast of the Baltimore Orioles 13-inning victory over the Detroit Tigers on backup catcher Taylor Teagarden's walk-off homerun. But until I do, let's talk about this like grown-ups, OK? After Teagarden, who had just been activated for Saturday's game, hit the homer and was duly mobbed by his teammates, he stood on the field for a post-game interview with the Fox announcers in the booth, Bill Ripken and Kenny Albert.

The Orioles desperately needed to go through a game like the one that played out Friday night against the Indians at Camden Yards - one that helps a sputtering offense regain life. During the hottest day of the season so far - the game-time temperature at Camden Yards was a sweltering 100 degrees - the Orioles' bats finally started to heat up. In their 9-8 win over the Indians, a game that included five lead changes, the Orioles enjoyed an offensive performance not seen in two weeks.

Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts went 3-for-4 with one RBI in his first big-league baseball game in more than a year after being sidelined with recurring concussion symptoms. As good as he was on the field Tuesday, his performance may have been even better in the news conference afterward. When Roberts is willing, he can be one of the more thoughtful, introspective players in baseball. Boy, was he willing Tuesday. So much so that I thought it was worth sharing a bunch of the quotes with you in blocks.

Brian Roberts had never been the recipient of a postgame shaving cream pie - the ones Orioles center fielder Adam Jones now ceremoniously delivers to unsuspecting daily heroes while they do interviews on the field after big wins. That changed after Tuesday's 8-6 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates at Camden Yards. Roberts played in his first major league game in nearly 13 months - his long, winding recovery from multiple concussions finally landing back at his rightful place atop the Orioles lineup.
