Movie-lovers who haven't seen Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 Vertigo since its 1996 restoration owe themselves a visit to the Charles at noon tomorrow. They're apt to feel as if they've never seen it before because they've never heard it before. The post-1996 prints of the ultimate cult movie - Hitchcock's voluptuous exploration of l'amour feu - present the original musical tracks in state-of-the-art sound that extracts previously hidden undertones and highlights from Bernard Herrmann's score.

Question: : Is there a neck-and-head exercise that helps relieve vertigo? I thought I read something to that effect. Drugs like meclizine do not help. Answer: : A lot depends on the reason for the vertigo. If it is because of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV), then the Epley maneuver can cure the condition within minutes. This is a series of movements of the head and neck that get the crystals from the inner ear back where they belong and restore a sense of equilibrium.

Saturday night, Vertigo Books in College Park was scheduled to hold an Irish wake for itself. The independent store opened in Washington's Dupont Circle in 1991 and moved to College Park in 2000. From the beginning, it battled fierce competition: super-sized bookstores, online retailers such as Amazon.com, membership stores, e-book readers. The final blow was the withering recession. "It was death by 1,000 cuts," co-owner Todd Stewart said during Vertigo's store-closing sale, adding that Amazon was "the biggest cut of all."

In the market for a long-lasting, multipurpose outdoor shoe that's waterproof? Kayland's Arya Low eVent ($105; $90, nonwaterproof) fills the bill and is waterproof to boot. The upper is suede and fabric, a soft combination that fits like a glove but so far has endured my best efforts to rip it to shreds. The "eVent" waterproof membrane works well and dries fast, and the Vibram sole provides good traction and stability on trails. If you need something beefier for carrying heavier loads or for longer hikes, Arya's tougher relative, the Vertigo High ($200)

When Scott Hoch bent over to survey his first putt in yesterday's third round of the Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship at Baltimore Country Club, he knew he was in trouble. "It was like, `Woooo', something's going on there," Hoch recalled later. "I don't know what vertigo is, but I tell [you], it was the strangest thing." The feeling, which Hoch said started coming on late in his round Friday, never left. It contributed to Hoch's shooting a 4-over-par 74 and shooting himself out of contention after coming into the round two strokes behind the leader, Loren Roberts.

SYDNEY -- So this is the view. Stomach churning, you are standing on what amounts to a gigantic coat hanger that is shaking and swaying in the wind any way it pleases because it's part of a bridge, and that is what bridges do. From this perch atop one of the bridge's two arches, you gaze down 440 feet from the bottom of your rubber-soled shoes to the deceptively calm-looking water. You see power boats, sailboats, tugs and ferries, a rush hour of pleasure-going, hard-working vessels cruising through the world's loveliest harbor.
