A tip about liquid explosives has forced a US Airways flight headed to Dallas to return to Philadelphia. FBI spokesman Frank Burton told the Associated Press that US Airways Flight 1267 was already in the air when it was diverted back to Philadelphia International Airport following an anonymous tip. There were no injuries reported. Philly.com had local TV footage that showed people being escorted off the plane, and a handcuffed man in a state police car. The online news outlet also reported footage of a man kneeling on the ground as a law-enforcement dog circled him, seeming to sniff around the individual.

Scientists have found strong evidence of a watery sea beneath the icy surface of Enceladus, a moon that orbits Saturn and squirts jets of water vapor into one of the planet's rings. The dramatic jets, which emerge from cracks in the moon's surface, have long tantalized scientists looking for signs of liquid water elsewhere in the solar system. Now, using gravitational data from NASA's Cassini spacecraft, the researchers have determined that Enceladus hosts a vast southern sea roughly the size of Lake Superior.

Trips to an electronics repair store sometimes turn into an exercise in debate: "Yes, I'm sure I didn't spill water on it!" Apple Inc. is looking to put those arguments to rest by using a technology that detects when a laptop has been exposed to liquid. The Cupertino, Calif.-based company's new MacBook and MacBook Pro computers include two liquid submersion indicators, which are small sensors located under the keyboard and near the trackpad that change color when exposed to a liquid.

Hard-to-get spines can be pulled out with pliers. Epazote is generally available at Latin markets.

Regarding Sheila Benson's "There's Truth in the Fine Details" (Aug. 20), I am appalled by her own lack of common sense in slamming "The Abyss." As director James Cameron's research assistant, let me clear up a few things. --The ring in the door, which Benson assumes is gold, even though it's clearly made of white metal, is in fact made of titanium, which can withstand the pressure of several tons per square inch. This is made clear in both Jim's script and in Orson Scott Card's excellent novel of the film.

Every flier knows the 3-1-1 drill for carry-on bags, but what about items like duty-free liquor? The Transportation Security Administration has started to allow international passengers with connecting flights to keep duty-free liquids -- more than the allowed 3.4 ounces -- with them on board, according to the TSA's website. The rule, which went into effect last Friday, applies only to passengers returning to the U.S. and international travelers who have connecting flights. For those travelers, liquids that exceed 3.4 ounces will be allowed in carry-on bags as long as they are placed in "secure, tamper-evident bags," the agency's website says.

Are you tired of having airport security screeners toss away your bottles of water, shampoo or lotion? Change is on the way in some parts of the world. Battelle, a nonprofit research and development organization in Ohio, has built a screening device that London's Heathrow Airport began installing last week to test liquids carried by passengers onto planes. Heathrow Airport screeners will begin using the device in January, when the European Union will start allowing some liquids, aerosols and gels onto planes under a phased timetable.

With one stroke, entrepreneur Robert R. Taylor made a fortune, changed the way America washed up and doomed the bathroom soap dish to virtual obsolescence. It was Taylor who turned hand soap from a slippery lump to a dab from a pump. Taylor, who created Softsoap, the first mass-marketed liquid soap pumped from a plastic bottle, died of cancer Aug. 29 in Newport Beach, family members said. He was 77. Softsoap was one of his many successful ventures, which included Obsession, a fragrance he developed with Calvin Klein and promoted in steamy ads that stimulated both sales and controversy.

This post has been updated. In the short, high-definition film “Liquid Assets” by Israeli-born, London-based artist Ori Gersht, a rippling gray blob of molten metal that looks rather like mercury rolls into close-up view against a mottled gray field. Slowly it takes the loose shape of a disk. An electronic soundtrack rumbles with foreboding as the disk's animated surface boils like a roiling, storm-tossed sea. Amid the shifting waves, the suggestion of a face in profile looking to the right flickers in and out of view.

Perhaps I missed some crucial logic in your editorial on the Alaskan oil spill ("Hazards of Imported Oil," March 31). I agree that we need to curb our dependence on oil, but to leap from the pollution of Prince William Sound, which was caused by drunkenness, to a 50-cents per gallon tax increase on gas is to target the wrong liquid. What is needed is a much stiffer tax on alcohol. That might discourage consumption on the part of drinkers who are out at night causing trouble, and also wasting oil. M. POWER GIACOLETTI Lake Forest

I am interested in forming a club for people who believe the same as I do. My good wife and I eat in restaurants quite often. I've noticed that the salads are often made of very small pieces of lettuce, etc. It is often difficult to eat them with a fork. Therefore, I've taken to eating such salads with a soup spoon. When I do this, my good wife and other eating companions often frown at me. When I eat soup, after I have eaten all of the solid parts, I lift up the soup bowl and drink the remaining liquid.

A frosted door, etched "Est 1886," greets visitors who wind past a small, canopied patio behind Pasadena's Raymond restaurant. That door was not there 127 years ago. Nor was the patio. Nor the restaurant. Instead, the year refers to the first incarnation of the famed Raymond Hotel, straddling the hilltop border of Pasadena and South Pasadena and luring wealthy visitors with warm hospitality and warmer winters. Those carefree days of orange-scented glamour are gone, but a little of it remains at Bar 1886, where a small cocktail oasis offers labor-intensive libations and a crowd more resembling the low-lighted haunts of downtown than the sleepy, suburban sidewalks of Pasadena.
