At a crowded table in the cafe room at the Wegman's in Columbia, Ekaterina Pyankova greets people with the Russian word for hello: "privet. " A few feet away, Nadja Todt offers a German greeting: "Hallo. " And in the center of the room, Girija Duraiswami says "namaste," a Hindi word and gesture given for both greeting and bidding farewell. While uttering the word, she places her palms together before her chest and bends slightly forward. " 'Namaste' means, 'My soul is saluting the soul in you,'" said Duraiswami, a Columbia resident who grew up in India.

I'll admit it. I kind of hate what Miley Cyrus has done to popular culture (even though I secretly jam out to #Bangerz on a somewhat regular basis.) For one, the tongue thing drives me insane. Every time I see her tongue, I feel like it looks thirsty and I have this urge to throw an open bottle of Fiji at my TV. I sometimes feel uncomfortable with the amount of skin she chooses to show, mostly because she's built like a boy in middle school, so that makes things really weird. Also, I'm pretty sure I pulled a quad at the Pride block party last year twerking to “We Can't Stop.” For these reasons and more, I went all last week absolutely dead-set on hating tonight's episode of "Glee.

Can an old tongue learn new tricks? Lately I have been trying to train my tongue to be in the best position to taste the various types of wine I throw its way.Your red Bordeaux and your California Cabernets, for instance, are supposed to land in the middle of the tongue. By landing there the tongue theoretically gets a clean shot at the fruit flavors of the red wines. Meanwhile, your Rieslings are supposed to splash down on the tip of tongue. This landing spot is where the sweet flavors of the wine are detected.

I believe in bootlicking boosterism as much as any columnist, so if you want to tell me that Baltimore has the best crabcakes, the nicest harbor and the most plentiful downtown parking in the world, hey, I'll pass it on.But I have to draw the line when it comes to pastrami. Journalistic integrity and my own taste buds demand it.Loyal readers (i.e., blood relatives) know that I am somewhat of a pastrami expert. I have eaten it in such exotic and unlikely locations as Saudi Arabia, Beirut, Hong Kong and Los Angeles.

The TV Repairman:You know it's time for the Winter Olympics to end when names like Natalia Mishkutienok and Artur Dmitriev dance confidently off the tongue.* If Nancy Kerrigan is going to become a huge part of our lives via endorsements, commercials, etc., hopefully someone will instruct her to keep her eyes all the way open, stop cleaning her teeth with her tongue and ditch the adolescent shrugs and giggling during interviews.* Tell you one thing, I'd lose a lot of confidence in any sort of athletic pursuit going against a gent with an intimidating name like Vegard Ulvang.

If you like sci-fi mixed in with surreal choreography and a complicated father-daughter relationship, you're going to love "Gift of Forgotten Tongues," on stage at Venus Theatre on C Street through Sept. 28. Written by New York-based playwright Fengar Gael, the futuristic play is sometimes fast-paced and sometimes not, with the characters skillfully pulling the audience into their troubled lives. The play takes place in the lab of Dr. Weaver, a geneticist who wants to someday win a Nobel Prize and is hoping an ethically questionable experiment will make it happen.

A truly ironic position by our County Executive Kevin Kamenetz who proclaims the environmental positives of trees (Towson Times, May 1, "Kamenetz plans to increase county forest county canopy") yet makes the decision to destroy 10 acres of hardwood trees in Mays Chapel Park in order to build an elementary school there. This man is a true snake oil salesman, who is willing to destroy the infrastructure of one community to benefit his political agenda in another. Obviously common decency is lacking.

Annapolis junior Jessica Tongue showed why she's one of the premier sprinters in the area at the county track and field championships last week. She swept the 100-meter and 200-meter dashes, anchored the winning 400-meter relay and placed second in the 100-meter hurdles. "She listens to her desire to be the best runner out there," Annapolis coach Brian Brown said. "She's naturally fast and naturally competitive." Not long ago, Tongue had not even stepped foot on a track. She played lacrosse and basketball growing up, using her natural speed to run by the competition.
