JAZZ The son of a jazz royalty in Alice and John Coltrane, Ravi Coltrane may never fully escape his parents' shadow, but on his latest album "Spirit Fiction" he sounds utterly at peace with that reality. A knotty and expressive release that nods toward his mother and father's restless creativity while at the same time encapsulating a logical extension of it, the quietly addictive album may be Coltrane's best yet. Here he performs in a quartet anchored by fiery young drummer E.J. Strickland.

Everyone who has ever painted knows that bristles can fall off the paint brush and mar your new surface.

Once in the throat or intestines, the bristles can cause serious damage, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned this week in its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. A team of physicians from Brown University's Alpert School of Medicine reported that they had observed six cases of such injury between March 2011 and June 2012.
