Stringer Bell, John Luther, Nelson Mandela and maybe the next James Bond - the career of Idris Elba is on the rise. At 40, Elba is one of the most sought-after and respected actors on either side of the Atlantic. And this week, BBC America has four nights of “Luther” that showcase his remarkable emotional range and dramatic power to an extent not seen even on HBO's “The Wire.” Elba returns for this very short third season of four episodes airing Tuesday through Friday.

On a day when Towson desperately needed someone to step up, coach Shawn Nadelen didn't hesitate to reach down into the bowels of his depth chart. With both of the Tigers' top face-off specialists struggling against Mount St. Mary's, Nadelen turned to third-stringer Ian Mills, who hadn't appeared in either of Towson's first three games. The junior came up huge down the stretch, winning four of five face-offs in the fourth quarter, as the host Tigers rallied to score the game's final three goals in a 10-8 win. "We talked [Friday]

Sun media critic David Zurawik emailed “Wire” creator David Simon seeking an assessment from him of Idris Elba for a feature story on Elba. Simon's generous and thoughtful email reply seemed too good not to publish on its own. Here's what Simon has to say about the actor who helped him bring Stringer Bell to life - and then death: “From the very first episodes, Idris demonstrated the abilities and dynamics of being a breakout star. It was all there in the first dailies, actually.

Ask Rutgers women's basketball coach Vivian Stringer about her Maryland counterpart, Chris Weller, and you're likely to hear a hearty chuckle.Their teams have been playing each other for more than 20 years -- even having faced each other in the first NCAA Final Four in 1982. While their sport evolves, Stringer, whose Knights will meet the Terps tonight in Maryland's home opener, feels that her friend hasn't really changed."Chris has always had a team that's under control. They play a lot of high/low, they have balance," said Stringer.

Don't look for less violence on CBS in coming months.The networks have done enough to clean up violence. And politicians, like Sen. Paul Simon, D-Ill., should leave them alone and focus on the real causes of violence in society.That was the message here yesterday from CBS President Howard Stringer, who last week met with Senator Simon on the issue of TV violence. The meeting with Simon was also attended by top executives from ABC and NBC."In private meetings with Senator Simon, I have said that the purpose of the political hearings [last year in Washington]

Obafemi Ayanbadejo and Qadry Ismail counted him as a friend. He kept Randall Cunningham out of harm's way for three seasons. His education in the intricacies of an NFL offense was provided by Brian Billick. The death of Pro Bowl offensive tackle Korey Stringer hit the Ravens particularly hard. He spent his six-year NFL career with the Minnesota Vikings, the franchise that Billick used as a springboard to his first head coaching job and where Cunningham had an improbable Most Valuable Player season in 1998.

You could feel the love from the opening kickoff. Even as Jacoby Jones took a knee in the end zone, things were getting chippy. Forearms were flying, shoves were traded and the Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers were exchanging the usual pleasantries that go along with the most heated rivalry in the NFL. But in the end, it was the Steelers who were the tougher team Sunday, tough enough to steal a 23-20 win at M&T Bank Stadium, where the Ravens had...

The Ravens were fortunate that Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger didn't play Sunday because the score might have been worse. Much worse. In the past couple of weeks, the Ravens had the football gods smiling down on them, but Sunday they were beaten by a quarterback older than Moses. Some say Charlie Batch was playing in the NFL when there were no facemasks on helmets. There is speculation he has filed for Medicare and Social Security. But Batch, 37, outperformed his much younger and sometimes more talented counterpart Joe Flacco as Pittsburgh upset the Ravens, 23-20, before 71,442 at M&T Bank Stadium.

Tony Guthrie never met the man he calls "the best mayor we ever had," William Donald Schaefer, who died in April. "He loved this city," said Guthrie, 51, who owns a barbershop in Baltimore's Pimlico neighborhood. "I would have loved to shake his hand. " But if Guthrie never got that close to Schaefer during his lifetime, he brushed up against his legacy on Tuesday, which would have been the 90th birthday of the former mayor, governor and comptroller. Guthrie was among those who celebrated the milestone in a way that surely would have made the cantankerous Schaefer smile — by expending some elbow grease to tidy up the town.

DES MOINES, Iowa -- Iowa's first same-sex couple to get married here tied the knot yesterday in a surprise breakthrough for gay rights advocates in this traditionally conservative Midwestern state. As wedding ceremonies go, the Rev. Mark Stringer admits the event he presided over in a front yard yesterday morning was "really brief" and lacked the usual lofty and sometimes somber oratory used at weddings. But taking advantage of a narrow window created by a Polk County judge - an opening that closed hours later when the judge agreed to stay his ruling - Stringer administered vows to university students Timothy McQuillan and Sean Fritz in what is believed to be Iowa's first same-sex marriage.

Apple Computer Inc. yesterday became the second PC maker to recall hundreds of thousands of potential- ly flammable laptop bat- teries. But the recall may prove less a headache for Apple Chief Executive Officer Steven P. Jobs than for Sony Corp. CEO Howard Stringer. That's because Sony manufactured the 1.8 million potentially problematic batteries in Apple's iBook G4 and PowerBook G4 laptops - just as it did the 4.1 million batteries recalled last week by Dell Inc. Now, other device makers are scrutinizing rechargeable lithium-ion batteries made by the little-known Sony Energy Devices Corp.
