There's no way to downplay the obvious emotional ties No. 5 Johns Hopkins and No. 10 Maryland will have when they meet Saturday evening in another installment of their annual rivalry. But in some ways, both sides have been down this road before. Blue Jays coach Dave Pietramala likened this week of preparation to gearing up for much-anticipated opponents like Virginia and Syracuse. “The Virginia game is an emotional game. The Syracuse game is an emotional game,” he said Wednesday.

A page proof came back to me last night with this sentence marked: "A freight train smacked into a truck carrying garbage and careened off the tracks in Rosedale Tuesday afternoon, triggering an explosion felt throughout the region and sending up a plume of black smoke visible for miles. " The suggestion was to change careened to careered .  I went into the careen/career distinction once in my copy editing class, and got even blanker looks than usual.* We used to be quite firm about this.

A decade from now, business travelers may be routinely flying in aircraft that take off as helicopters do and then tilt their rotors or wings forward to fly as airplanes.The best-known of the new aircraft is the V-22 Osprey, which has a large tilting rotor on the end of each wing. Two military contractors, Boeing Helicopters of Ridley Township, Pa., and Bell Helicopter/Textron of Fort Worth, Texas, are test-flying prototype copies of the Osprey for the Marine Corps.In addition, a small Japanese-owned company, Ishida Aerospace Research Inc., has set up shop in Fort Worth and says it will have a 14-passenger craft with a tilting wing ready for regular commercial airline or air-taxi service by 1997.

When Bill Tierney helmed Princeton to all six of its national championships during his tenure there, the Tigers were renowned for a suffocating defensive scheme that at times strangled opponents into offensive futility. When John Desko replaced Syracuse Hall of Famer Roy Simmons Jr. prior to the 1999 season, the Orange maintained their run-and-gun roots and outsprinted opposing teams en route to five NCAA titles. Tierney left Princeton to take a similar position at Denver for the 2010 campaign, while Desko still heads Syracuse.

HISTORY IS OFTEN UNFORGIVING of diplomats and diplomacy. It promises to be ruthless when the historians, who sometimes err themselves, begin seriously sorting out the background for the new gulf war.That U.S. diplomacy failed in the run-up to the war is indisputable. All wars represent failures of diplomacy. Yet there was a reason for every action, taken for what seemed the higher national interest. It remains for diplomats and their leaders to sort out the results as best they can in order to prepare for the next crisis in the region, which will come before the historians have time to deal with the current one.Was it a mistake to "tilt" -- the vogue word -- toward Iraq in the in Iran-Iraq war?

Tilt: A Skewed History of the Tower of Pisa, by Nicholas Shrady. Simon & Schuster. 192 pages. $21.95. A shrewd little combination history, travelogue and architecture / engineering analysis of what must be Earth's pre-eminent weird building. To make the point, the publisher has manufactured the volume on the bias -- the spine rises at a 15-degree tilt from the vertical, though the Tower of Pisa itself, today, leans only 5 degrees, and leaned 1.6 degrees when built in 1370. The structure -- actually a campanile, a bell tower -- has challenged, worried, delighted and angered technicians and aesthetes for all the 520-some years of its life.

Of all the profound influences on the Earth's delicate climate, from volcanic eruptions to asteroid impacts, scientists now suggest that the most important may be the most unexpected: the moon.Two French scientists reported in today's issue of the journal Nature that the moon apparently acts as a sort of gravitational gyroscope to stabilize the 23-degree tilt of Earth's axis, the slight skew that gives the planet its seasons.Without the moon, Jacques Laskar and Philippe Robutel of the Bureau des Longitudes in Paris assert, the Earth -- like the planets of the inner solar system, Mercury, Venus and Mars -- would tilt as much as 85 degrees off vertical.

Today is the day to set your sundial. On this date the "equation of time" is zero. That means solar time and clock time are in agreement, and noon on your sundial should agree with noon on your watch. This is also true on Sept. 1, Dec. 25 and April 15. The rest of the year, your sundial might run as much as 16 minutes fast or 14 minutes slow. Blame Earth's tilt and elliptical orbit.

An observer describing its popularity wrote: "Go around the corner to the drugstore or tavern or hotel lobby and you will find one or two or 10 pinball machines and a crowd around them.

Washington College's remarkable turnaround last season absorbed a little bit of a blow when the team fell to Dickinson, 11-6, in the title game of the Centennial Conference tournament on May 6. It was the second-to-last game as the Shoremen lost to Goucher, 5-4, in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Despite the heartache, coach Jeff Shirk said he doesn't want No. 10 Washington College (10-1 overall and 4-1 in the league) to remember that result or use it as a rallying cry when the No. 2 Red Devils (11-0, 4-0)

At 10-1 and ranked No. 10 in the most recent United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association poll, Washington College is enjoying one of its more successful campaigns in recent history. But the team is thriving despite a troubling pattern of slow starts. The Shoremen have ended the first quarter with only a one- or two-goal lead in four contests, and although they won all four games, the margin of victory for two of those was just a single goal. During a three game-stretch against McDaniel on March 23, Haverford on March 27 and Franklin & Marshall on March 30, the team trailed at the start of the second quarters in each of those contests.

Loyola's satisfaction over playing with a full starting lineup lasted just one game. After pounding then-No. 8 Ohio State, 9-4, on March 30 with its full complement of starters, the team took care of Fairfield, 13-7, last Saturday without freshman attackman Zach Herreweyers. Herreweyers had started in the No. 10 Greyhounds' last four contests, but was not dressed for Saturday's victory. Coach Charley Toomey wouldn't say what was ailing Herreweyers. “We're all fighting something,” he said.

In the Salisbury-Stevenson rivalry that has bordered on something akin to the dislike waged by the Hatfields and McCoys, there usually isn't room for ambiguity. You're usually rooting for one team or the other. That's what makes Wednesday night's showdown between the former Capital Athletic Conference rivals difficult for Chris and Brady Dashiell. Chris Dashiell is a junior midfielder-converted-to-attackman who starts for the No. 3 Mustangs (9-1). Brady Dashiell is a freshman attackman-converted-to-midfielder who plays significant minutes for the No. 6 Sea Gulls (10-2)

No one likes to lose and Maryland is no exception. It's been five days since the Terps were upset Saturday, 10-8, by then-No. 10 North Carolina - an outcome that saddled the team with its first loss in seven games and cost it the No. 1 spot in most polls and rankings. As No. 5 Maryland (6-1) prepares for Saturday's showdown with Atlantic Coast Conference rival and No. 13 Virginia (5-4), the emotion from the setback has ebbed, but not entirely disappeared. “Obviously, we were disappointed,” fifth-year senior midfielder Jake Bernhardt said Tuesday.
