A white tube runs attic to basement, like a stake through the heart of the $525,000-plus Wisconsin home. A network of smaller orange tubes snakes throughout its two stories. The tubing is a structured raceway for low-voltage electrical and cable lines, installed by John Koeske, president of Knight Security Installations in Shorewood, Wis. Koeske, a 30-year veteran of the burglar alarm and fire alert business, sees his newest professional role as residential neurosurgeon. For $2,000, his "surgery" equipped the house for much of today's and possibly tomorrow's technology.

The first thing you need to know about snow tubing is that it's exhausting. The second thing is that it's a ton of snow-bound fun, no matter how old you are. The folks at regional ski resorts realized several years ago not everyone is capable of, or enjoys, skiing and snowboarding but perhaps those people still want to join in the wintry thrills. Snow tubing is the solution. It requires no skill other than the ability to sit on a large recreational tube with handles; you don't even have to steer since you'll be gliding down a divided glazed lane cleverly stacked with occasional moguls (small bumps)

McHENRY - Wisp is such a dainty name for a ski area that can plumb tucker you out. The vertical drop from summit to base at the Garrett County resort is just 610 feet - a mere dip in the terrain if you're used to the Adirondack's Whiteface Mountain or the slopes of the Rockies. But that's not the point. Wisp lets a weekend warrior sample downhill and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snow biking, tubing and snowboarding without wasting time in the family Suburban Assault Vehicle driving from place to place.

A new species of carnivore has been discovered, with experts describing the olinguito as a housecat-like creature. Meanwhile, on Digg, the old idea of sending actual house cats through pneumatic tubes has been resurrected, or at least recognized as maybe not the best idea. And finally, Baltimore's municipal government has decided that perhaps signing a contract giving Comcast monopoly rights in the city for years was not the best idea they've ever had. Welcome to your online trends report for Friday, August 16, 2013.

Last week's rains came too late for the 3,000 seedlings planted thisyear in the Route 100-Route 10 median strip. About 85 percent have died, the victims of the summer drought.But the contractor who planted the trees has agreed to plant new ones for no additional charge,state officials said."There was nothing we could do about it. The draught has absolutely devastated many of our plantings from this year. I've started to remove some of the tubes from the dead ones in the median strip. I'd say somewhere around 15 percent of those trees have survived," said Walter Orlinsky, director of the state sponsored Tree-Mendous Maryland program.

Talk all you want about the "dematerialization of the art object" - critic Lucy R. Lippard's fancy phrase for the emergence of conceptual art in the 1960s - but Dan Flavin's sculptures are still just a bunch of off-the-shelf fluorescent light fixtures with glowing, pastel-colored tubes. Nothing fancy, nothing too terribly theoretical, abstract or fashionably French-ified: just your ordinary, mass-produced fluorescent light bulbs suitable for industrial or office use. Yet in Flavin's hands they became living things, absolutely amazing embodiments of the cultural Zeitgeist.

On Sunday's steamy afternoon, Greg Dean headed north with two friends and three inner tubes for what was supposed to be a cool and lazy float down the Gunpowder. Yesterday, Dean recalled a night of misadventure that left him and one of his pals stranded in a cornfield, coaxing a fire from some husks and trying to stay warm - and calm -as rescuers searched the woods and water for the castaways. "We just sat there and thought, `What can we do?'" said Dean, a 22-year-old stocker at a liquor store.

In 2002, at a crucial juncture on the path to war, senior members of the Bush administration gave a series of speeches and interviews in which they asserted that Saddam Hussein was rebuilding his nuclear weapons program. In a speech to veterans that August, Vice President Dick Cheney said Hussein could have an atomic bomb "fairly soon." President Bush, addressing the United Nations the next month, said there was "little doubt" about Hussein's appetite for nuclear arms. The U.S. intelligence community had not yet concluded that Iraq was rebuilding its nuclear weapons program.

Chris Dunn called the class to order with a simple instruction: "One, two, ready, strum. " A torrent of E minor chords - or close enough - from nearly a dozen guitars filled the room at the Commodore John Rodgers Elementary/Middle School near Patterson Park. The smallest kids could barely get their right arms around the body of the instrument, but they found a way to strum as energetically as the others. For the next 90 minutes, Dunn darted from student to student, making sure they had their fingers on the correct fret, offering words of encouragement.

About a year ago, Stephanie Barber looked up Bob Seger's 1976 classic "Night Moves" on YouTube, trying to figure out the lyrics. "I started reading the comments, and I just spent hours reading, and I cried, and I was like, 'Oh my god, this is so moving, this forum," Barber said. Barber, a Baltimore artist and writer, turned those unedited YouTube comments into a book called "Night Moves. " It's her way of exploring human nature, especially through relatively new public forums like YouTube.
