Millennium employs more than 800 people in the state. Titanium dioxide is used in such diverse products as toothpaste, trash bags and the letters on M&Ms.

I would like to point out a side effect of allergy medications that contain pseudoephedrine for nasal decongestion. Taking Claritin D left me completely unable to fall asleep. I was literally up all night with a racing heartbeat. I was so sleep-deprived that I couldn't work. I finally read the warning about nervousness, dizziness or sleeplessness. I called my doctor, who said I should switch to plain Claritin (without a decongestant). On this drug, I sleep like a baby. I urge anyone with insomnia to check all medications for pseudoephedrine.

In the world of computer memory, the floppy disk has officially reached brontosaurus status. In other words, it's ancient history. The technological meteor that will soon replace it is the new, compact flash memory card. In the week and a half I spent running PQI's Intelligent Stick 2.0 ($44.99 to $124.99) through the gauntlet, I found it to be durable, fast and remarkably easy to use -- in addition to being much smaller than a floppy disk. Flash memory, for those who are still on the floppy disk wavelength, performs the same tasks but with no moving parts and no magnets.

Researchers at Millennium Inorganic Chemicals are celebrating the fact that they now have acres of space to study products so small that 12 million of them could fit on a pinhead. The company is the world's second-largest maker -- behind DuPont -- of titanium dioxide, a white pigment used in items such as paint, plastics, toothpaste, non-dairy creamer and the white writing on M&M candy. Millennium recently opened an $18-million, 120,000-square- foot research center in northern Anne Arundel County that is three times larger than its old facility five miles away in Baltimore.

Millennium Inorganic Chemicals is weighing whether it should invest millions of dollars in its southern Baltimore manufacturing plant or in other facilities elsewhere to meet rising demand for its titanium dioxide pigment. Executives of the Hunt Valley company are talking with state and city officials to see what incentives might be available to expand its 430-employee Hawkins Point plant. Should the company decide not to invest in the Hawkins Point plant, its future could be endangered.
