As we head into the afternoon on Day 3 of the winter meetings, the Orioles remain quiet. No signings, no trades, a lot of discussion -- oh, and plenty preparation for tomorrow's Rule 5 draft. According to an industry source, the Orioles have still not made an offer to any closer. It looks like they're staying pat. But that doesn't mean the Orioles aren't trying to make any moves. Dan Duquette isn't riding Space Mountain or anything like that. And, really, what's the difference between making a move here under the winter meetings spotlight or a week down the road?

Hiking with a 50-pound backpack for the better part of a day is physically demanding, but doing so up the side of a mountain is exhausting. Wendy Cirko found that out the hard way. She could have been sitting on a couch in her Bel Air home, watching TV, she said. But as she grabbed tufts of grass to help her on the steep ascent, all the while trying not to think about how far she could fall if she weren't careful, she couldn't help wondering what she had gotten herself into. All this came on just Day Three of her 77-day National Outdoor Leadership School program, a three-part trip through New Zealand that included about 40 days of backpacking, about 30 days of kayaking and about 10 days aboard a 40-foot sailboat.

Jurors in the trial of Cleaven Williams, who fatally stabbed his wife seven times outside a Baltimore courthouse in 2008, are having trouble reaching a consensus and will continue deliberating for a third day Thursday. Shortly after 4 p.m. Wednesday, members sent a note to Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Timothy J. Doory that appeared to indicate they were having trouble reaching a verdict, and he instructed them to keep at it. They asked to go home for the day about an hour later through another note that mentioned "bickering" and "mixed emotions," according to a clerk's reading of the letter, which could be overheard in the courtroom.

LOS ANGELES -- National Guard troops and police wrestled to gain control of riot-ravaged neighborhoods across Los Angeles yesterday amid indications that authorities were gaining the upper hand for the first time in three days of the worst urban unrest in the city's history.In a city that has long boasted about the richness of its Third World flavor, it had come yesterday to mirror the worst of its war-torn neighbors to the south. Military equipment rolled down boulevards, men with automatic weapons kept sentry and a dusk-to-dawn curfew kept residents indoors following Wednesday's not-guilty verdicts in the case of four Los Angeles police officers charged with beating black motorist Rodney G. King.

NEW YORK - Thousands of abortion-rights supporters marched over the Brooklyn Bridge yesterday in what organizers called the largest demonstration devoted to that issue in New York in three decades. The protest, which opened a third day of demonstrations aimed at the Republican National Convention, occurred as hundreds of bicycle-riding protesters who were arrested a night earlier were arraigned in a Manhattan court, many having been held on minor charges for many hours before being released.

Right guard Marshal Yanda and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata were not on the field today in the Ravens' final full practice ahead of Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Yanda, who is dealing with knee and shoulder injuries, and Ngata, who has a knee injury, haven't practiced all week. Traditionally, Ravens who don't practice at all do not play that week. Ravens defensive coordinator Dean Pees said yesterday that Ngata was "getting some well-deserved rest.

The Ravens are prepared to go into Sunday's AFC North showdown against the Cincinnati Bengals without their emotional leader and top tackler. However, they learned long ago that it would be foolish to rule out middle linebacker Ray Lewis too early. Lewis, 36, missed a third straight day of practice Friday with a toe injury he sustained in last week's 22-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, and he appears likely to be sidelined Sunday, if not longer. But his history and pain tolerance have prompted the Ravens to list him as questionable for the game against Cincinnati at M&T Bank Stadium.

When left-hander Brian Matusz first learned he was headed to the disabled list with an intercostal muscle strain in early April, he refused to speculate on a timetable for his return. Now that he seems to be getting at least a little closer to getting onto a mound, Matusz is still avoiding the temptation to pick a target date to pitch in a big league game. "I get so excited. I just want to get out there, and I've just got to be able to take it day by day," he said. "I can't start planning things out saying, 'Oh, this is the day I want to be on the mound,' or 'This is when I want to be in a game,' because every day is different.

Much of the unrest has been concentrated in and around Karachi, the southern port city that was Bhutto's home base.

Despite taking 11 snow days this winter, public schools in Baltimore County will close just one day later than scheduled, on June 20. The school system had built seven snow days into the school calendar, and the State Board of Education waived three more, leaving one day to make up. Administrators said the district was the only one in the Baltimore area to get a third day waived, an action approved by the state board Tuesday. School system officials said the state board waived a third day because the district had built so many snow days into the school year.

Upset that his friend Ben Vassiliev hadn't given him birthday and Christmas presents and fearful that he no longer "cared," Ryan Furlough told investigators that he turned to the Internet in the fall of 2002 to find the best way to kill Vassiliev - and himself. He chose cyanide for its simplicity and ability to produce "instantaneous" results, all the while waiting for the 17-year-old Vassiliev to prove him wrong, Furlough said through tears. "But when it was nothing again and again and again, I started to accept the fact that for some reason or another, he just doesn't care about me anymore," he said during a lengthy videotaped police interview that was played yesterday in Howard Circuit Court during the third day of testimony in Furlough's trial on murder charges.
