The public service video produced by the Maryland National Guard on sexual assault begins like others. There's footage of troops training in the field. A narrator warns of predators within the ranks. A succession of leaders discusses the impact of assaults on service members and their teams. Then Brig. Gen. Linda Singh comes on the screen. "Speaking from personal experience, and having been sexually molested as a teenager, I sought out what I thought was the right support structure," the commander of the Maryland Army National Guard says.

POTOMAC -- In his third year on the PGA Tour, Vijay Singh is living up to his name. In Hindi, Vijay means "victory."Of Indian ancestry and the only world class golfer ever produced by the Fiji Islands, Singh was the PGA Tour Rookie of the Year in 1993. But he was without a win last year, and his winnings were cut in half to $325,959, explainable at least in part by the back problems that plagued him from May on.Victory is Vijay's more frequent companion this year. He won the Phoenix Open in January and the Buick Classic last month, and is No. 7 on the money list with $636,551, almost matching his 1993 total.

COLLEGE PARK - Seventy-six years after Wilmeth Sidat-Singh was barred a game against Maryland because of his race, the family of the late Syracuse player and Army pilot was honored at Byrd Stadium on Saturday. Relatives of Sidat-Singh, who died on a training mission in 1943, lined up on the field between the first and second quarters of the Terps' game against Syracuse. The family members, joined by Maryland athletic director Kevin Anderson, were presented with a framed, black “Wounded Warrior” jersey.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The extra set of teeth that was implanted into Augusta National four years ago and sharpened this year glistened yesterday under a bright Georgia sun, finally giving this idyllic and historic course the kind of bite that had been missing during a few recent rain-splattered Masters. It took more than five hours for anyone to stay under par in the opening round of the 70th Masters. Two players with varying history here found their way to the top of the leader board. With a 5-under-par 67, former champion Vijay Singh eventually passed journeyman Rocco Mediate to take a one-stroke lead.

AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Charlie Niyomkul noticed a change in Vijay Singh's demeanor in the past few weeks. Singh seemed more at ease with himself, more comfortable with those outside his small circle of friends. Niyomkul, who has known Singh for many years, thought of a conversation he had with Singh earlier this year. "I told him that he was working too hard, that he wasn't enjoying himself," Niyomkul said Sunday night, as Singh was a few yards away accepting the green jacket for winning the 64th Masters at Augusta National.

SRINAGAR, India - Prime Minister Manmohan Singh made his first visit as India's leader to the disputed Kashmir region yesterday and offered to hold unconditional peace talks with any separatists there who would shun violence. But a moderate separatist leader expressed disappointment at the invitation, which came as India began a limited withdrawal of troops from the region. "My brothers and sisters, my doors are open to all those who are ready to talk to me peacefully," Singh said from behind a wall of bulletproof glass in the summer capital of India's Jammu and Kashmir state.

It's been 76 years, but Lyn Henley doesn't consider it too late for the University of Maryland to do the right thing. In 1937, Henley's first cousin - Wilmeth Sidat-Singh - was blocked from playing in a football game at Maryland because he was black. The school didn't yet admit black students. Singh was a top player for Syracuse, Maryland's opponent on Saturday at Byrd Stadium. Rather than cause a stir, Syracuse benched Singh that day and lost the game, 13-0. Singh, a U.S. Army pilot, died in a plane crash in 1943.

No question the timing wasn't great for Vijay Singh to fall out of the top 50 in the world rankings, but it could have been worse. It could have happened next week. The only man to interrupt Tiger Woods' reign at No. 1 still has one week to get back inside that cut line and reserve a spot in both the U.S. Open and British Open. Singh stands 51st this week, with J.B. Holmes one spot back and PGA Tour rookie Rickie Fowler at No. 54. All need a top-5 finish at the Byron Nelson Championship to meet automatic qualification.

CHASKA, Minn. - - A news conference moderator reminded reporters Friday evening that Tiger Woods is the "36-hole leader" of the PGA Championship. OK, it only feels like the tournament is already over. At 7-under-par, Woods leads the field by four shots - but it feels more like 40. Even Padraig Harrington, probably the biggest threat to Woods' coronation, seems resigned to fighting for second. "If Tiger plays the golf he's capable of over the weekend," Harrington said, "then he will be the winner."

REDMOND, Wash. -- They played the third round of the PGA Championship and the Quad City Classic broke out. Actually, we probably should be used to it by now.What is it about the PGA anyway? How can Steve Stricker and Vijay Singh be sitting there together, double-buckled in the front seat, two guys looking for their first major victory and apparently dead set on continuing the PGA's quirky tradition of handing the trophy to first-timers?Maybe it's tradition. For six PGA champions in the last 10 years, the PGA is their only major title.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - He will either be the champion of the B flight or the player who stops Tiger Woods from completing his four-peat of majors. Going on the premise that the 65th Masters is Woods' tournament to lose, then whose is it to win here when play begins today? The list doesn't seem very long, though the rains that softened the greens at Augusta National the past few days and a forecast for warm, dry weather could turn pretenders into contenders as fast as you can say Joe Durant. At the top of the list has to be defending champion Vijay Singh, whose history before last year's three-shot victory indicated he had more of a chance to miss the cut than go home with the coveted green jacket.

As any good caterer knows, a good party involves not just excellent food, but a wonderful setting. So, when the Baltimore chapter of the National Association of Catering Executives throws its annual "Uncorked!" party, you can bet both the eats and the environment will be spectacular. The banquet room at the American Visionary Art Museum was a vision itself, with 27 tables decorated to fit the evening's "A Night at the Movies" theme. A table with The Birds theme featured the famous silhouette of Alfred Hitchcock hanging above a life-size tree centerpiece filled with black birds.

NEW DELHI - Brajveer Singh does not own a wide-brimmed hat, leather boots or a pair of jeans. He has never ridden a mechanical bull. But he can lay claim to being a real-life urban cowboy. Singh is among the dozens of men who spend their days roping cattle on the streets of this city as part of a long and frustrating battle to rid India's capital of stray cows. There is perhaps no more stereotypical image of India than that of a stray cow sauntering down the middle of a busy city street, seemingly oblivious to the traffic swerving around it. Hindus consider cows sacred animals, and their slaughter is banned throughout most of India.
