Amid reports of an "active shooter" on campus Monday, Stevenson University students threw their desks against the classroom door, then prayed with near-strangers under computer carts. Just three days later, elementary and middle school students at KIPP charter schools in Baltimore were hiding with their teachers in a classroom, while police searched the building for a gunman and hundreds of parents rushed to a nearby school to wait anxiously for word about their children. There was no real danger to students or teachers in either incident.

Name: : Joby Gorillapod flexible tripod (original) What it is: : This plastic tripod has a clip that screws into a digital camera for easy locking between camera and tripod. But to call this a tripod is almost misleading. It's a kind of plastic "creature" whose legs can wrap around railings, chair backs, table legs - your imagination is the only limit. It's perfect for leveling your camera on uneven surfaces or, as I said, attaching in places where a regular tripod wouldn't have a chance.

Last October, my wife, Wendy, and I traveled to Istanbul, Turkey, in celebration of her birthday. We stayed at a wonderful boutique hotel about a block from the famed Blue Mosque. On her birthday we met friends on the rooftop terrace for appetizers and wine before going out for a celebration dinner. As the evening progressed, we had the good fortune to witness a full moon rise behind the mosque. A few of us scattered to get our cameras. I went so far as to tangle with the tripod I had carried for so long and got the shot.

Forget what Tom Cruise does outside his movies: What he does inside his movies is more than enough to wreck them. He hides booby traps of self-absorption within a bundle of energy. Michael Mann brilliantly abstracted his go-getting persona into an affectless contract killer in Cruise's best star vehicle, Collateral. And at the start of War of the Worlds, Steven Spielberg and screenwriter David Koepp prod Cruise into using his goony effusiveness to portray a first-class - make that first-grade - idiot.

Finding a home on the Internet for your Web site can be relatively cheap thanks to the dot-com bust. Three years ago, a Web address with 100 megabytes of storage could cost $240 or more annually. Today, $100 a year will buy an address with up to 250 megabytes (most of which users never fill). Hundreds of companies such as FatCow, Feature Price and PowWeb offer Web hosting packages that include multiple e-mail accounts. By purchasing your own space, you won't have to put up with the banner advertising that is the hallmark of free Web site hosting plans like those offered by Yahoo!

Though never a fan of the tiniest gadgets, I found Panasonic's SV-AV100 D-Snap Video Camera ($1,000) appealing. It is so small and lightweight (.34 pounds) that it fits in the palm of your hand or a shirt pocket, yet the movies it shoots are pretty good - which is to say only a tad less gorgeous than those recorded by camcorders onto Mini-DV tapes. The D-Snap records MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 videos to a tiny SD memory card. The MPEG-4 images have lots of artifacts (glitches in fidelity caused by compression)

The news that the old downtown Stewart's department store has been transformed into the home of Catholic Relief Services occasioned some delightful letters, which need to be given a wider audience. Here goes: Skip Jones wrote: "I'm an expatriate now living in California. I worked for Stewart's display department in the early sixties. We often worked on the windows late at night after the store closed.

In his bunk aboard HMS Empire Javelin, Pvt. Charles "Harry" Heinlein felt gentle rocking as the vessel, packed with more than 1,200 American soldiers, awaited orders to leave Weymouth harbor for one of the greatest military adventures ever conceived. In the late afternoon on June 4, 1944, the West Baltimore native had no idea that out on the English Channel, one of the world's most capricious bodies of water, the waves were already so high, the forecast so gloomy, that Allied commanders were reconsidering their intention to launch a surprise invasion of Normandy, France, before the next sun rose.

Tuesday shapes up as a watershed election for Maryland. Regardless of who wins the race for governor, voting patterns are in the process of shifting so dramatically that this state may never be the same.Parris Glendening, the Democratic candidate, is relying on a tripod strategy -- massive victories in three of the state's most populous jurisdictions that are so huge they offset heavy losses in Maryland's other 21 counties.If he succeeds, it will establish a new formula for statewide elections and create a Prince George's-Montgomery-Baltimore city nexus in Annapolis.

There were maybe a couple thousand cameras on hand in, on, around, under and over the new ballpark at Camden Yards today: Expensive television jobs, hand-helds, instamatics, slo-mos, speed graphics, camcorders, Brownie hawkeyes. Chances are none were in better hands than those belonging to Michael Gustafson, however.As professional photographers go, Mike is probably in the Monet category, rapidly closing in on the Van Goghs and Rembrandts. He shoots ballparks and signature sporting events among other things and one glance at his stuff leaves you with a I-gotta-have-it yearning.
