Meg Harrington took the tortoise approach to fitness when she decided to shed pounds after her third child was born: She started slow, lifting weights, but not the traditional way. She is using a slow-motion training technique that she and others say is difficult, but effective at building muscle, promoting weight loss and developing strength. Her SuperSlow workout has produced results: She's 7 pounds lighter and 4 inches trimmer. "It takes every ounce of strength that I have," says Harrington, 39, a homemaker and business consultant in Sterling, Va. "After about six or eight weeks, I got to the point where I hated it, and it felt like labor, but you know, when my 18 minutes were up, I was really proud of myself."

Oh Maryland, how we love thee.  The Ravens, the Orioles, mountains of crabs. ADG ad agency has created a video Valentine to the Free State.  Shot in slow motion, the video features a cascade of Berger Cookies and a veritable river of Old Bay.  And, in honor of the agency's Columbia headquarters, there's a nod to some distinctly Howard County pleasures, such as the county library system.  We love their take on Maryland's rapidly...

IN THE first trial of the Los Angeles police officers who beat Rodney King, George Holliday's videotape was the key evidence.Jurors (and cable television viewers) did not just see the tape in real time, however; they watched it over and over in slow motion and with stop action.These techniques can be useful. They can also be very misleading.Before the jurors in the second trial begin their deliberations, it should be made clear to them the many ways in which videotaped evidence can be distorted or misused.

If you wonder why voters are often disgusted with inside-the-beltway politicians, you might consider what's happening this week to the $146 billion economic stimulus bill on which President Bush and Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives reached uncharacteristically quick agreement. The bill would quickly put tax rebates from $600 to $1200 into the pockets of 111 million Americans, and everyone - economists, business leaders, central bankers and even normally balky politicians - agrees that swift passage is an urgent priority if it is to have any effect in helping dodge a dangerous recession.

Even from the distance of almost 30 years, it is still shocking to review the events that took place Nov. 22, 1963, in Dallas. Especially hard to watch is the grainy footage of a bullet hitting President John F. Kennedy in the skull, snapping his head back against the limousine seat and sending a pink spray into the air.We see that moment multiple times -- and be warned it is sometimes in close-up slow motion -- during the premiere segment tonight of...

`YOU'VE WATCHED your house go up in flames. You watched them take the loot out of your house and put it in a helicopter and take it away. You've watched women being raped, or maybe you were a father and had one of your daughters raped. You don't know if all your family members are alive or are dead. "You're really sick, you're weak. You've watched people die all around you. [You're] lying on a mat, sometimes on a tarp, sometimes just under bushes -- feces all over the place; garbage all over the place; very, very little clean water; very, very little food, and almost no medicine.

Steve Trachsel was throwing a lot of pitches yesterday. And throwing to first base. And tugging on his jersey. And adjusting his cap. And asking for a conference with his catcher. And throwing to first base again. And circling his favorite programs in TV Guide. Let's speed it up. Livan Hernandez isn't getting any younger, you know. Trachsel threw 90 pitches in four innings. Strange ... it only felt like 89 to me. I'm not sure Jon Knott has a position. His reputation in the minors was built with his bat, not his glove.

DANDONG, China -- The gash on Ma Guanzheng's forehead is a small sign of the vast hunger gripping North Korea these days.A teen-ager struck Ma with a rock earlier this month as he was transporting flour across the border into North Korea. Ma said a crowd of teen-age boys leapt on his truck, cut through inch-thick ropes that held the flour on top and made off with 30 bags."If you stop, it's even worse," said Ma, 49, smoking a cigarette as he waited to cross the border again last week. "They will steal more."

Tejano Run had put up some numbers. The Kentucky-bred chestnut had finished out of the money once in nine lifetime starts and had run an impressive second at the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago.It was no wonder that he was one of the betting favorites for yesterday's 120th running of the Preakness, but Tejano Run didn't run very well -- finishing a disappointing ninth in the 11-horse field.The Derby runner-up got out of the gate slowly and never mounted a serious challenge over the 1 3/16-mile course.
