In Cold Spring, Unsettling Images by a Dispassionate Observer
IN one picture, a fat man with pants fit to burst is losing himself -- and perhaps his money, too -- in a prizefight; in an other image, a man, institutionalized, proposes a lonely toast with a plastic foam cup. Two people unlikely to meet in real life have come together in a show of photographs by Toby Old, at the John Froats Gallery, here. Mr. Old, who has been on the scene since the late 1970s but mostly in group shows staged by museums and galleries in New York City, fills this large space with his black-and-white observations of life. He deals with sporting events or their audiences or, in the case of the panorama of Madison Square Garden, packed and ready to go for the 1984 Marvin Hagler-Mustafa Hamsho fight, both. The center of attention in this image is the ring all but dissolved into the harsh lighting; the action is on the perimeter in the gesturing silhouettes of excited onlookers.

Who can remember life before multitasking? These days we all do it: mothers, air-traffic controllers, ambidextrous athletes, high-flying executives who manage to eat, take conference calls, write e-mail and conduct board meetings all at the same time. We lionize those who appear to multitask effortlessly and despair at our own haphazard attempts to juggle even two tasks, secretly wondering if there exists a race of superior beings whose brains are hard-wired for multitasking feats. Only recently have neurologists begun to understand what our brains are up to when we do it. What theyve learned offers hope to all multitasking delinquents out there. 1. Dont think you can actually do two things at once. Even when you think youre doing more than one thing simultaneously -- say, driving and talking on a cell phone -- you arent. Unlike a computer, the brain isnt structured as a parallel processor. It performs actions, even very simple actions, in a strict linear sequence. You must complete the first task, or part of that task, before moving on to the next. What we call multitasking is actually task switching.

Raise a Genius
Last summer, after much consideration, Toby Rosenberg announced to his friends and family that he had decided to change his name. Toby, he felt, was a little boys name. Going forward, he would be called Karl, like his father before him. His school made note of the switch. His parents had no argument. Toby -- now Karl -- was 5 years old. And he had a point: regardless of his age, Karl has never been a little boy. At 14 months, he began to read aloud from the posters he was pushed past in his stroller. It would be another full year before he truly conversed; but once he did, his fluent English and Polish (his mother, Anna, 40, is from Krakow) were soon joined by other languages. He trained himself to write Japanese after studying the side of a sake bottle. He taught himself the Hebrew alphabet after catching sight of the characters on a dreidel. Last year, after seeing a book in a museum shop on ancient Egypt, he compiled a dictionary of heiro-glyphics. The impression you get upon making his acquaintance is that of a bookish teenager, a middle-aged Polish diplomat and a gabby Brooklyn grandmother trapped together in the taut body of a first grader.

Stoke the Nostalgia, and the Old Rails Keep Humming
MORE than a century after Lionel started making model trains, a shiny locomotive chugging around a miniature track still fascinates children -- and many adults -- on Christmas morning. A years must-have toy may quickly be forgotten, but train tracks will often stay on the living room floor for weeks into the new year or become a permanent fixture on a plywood table in the basement. Model-train sets remain a popular gift -- about 90 percent are sold during the holiday season -- even though most of todays children have never traveled on a passenger train. And while most new toys on the market these days rely on the latest technology, the basic electric toy train has changed very little in the last 100 years..

With the Nasdaqs swoons causing widespread intestinal flutter, Nguyen knew a lot would hang on the first impression his company made. He wanted a name that would radiate strength and credibility, something with a dawn-of-an-era feel. He didnt even know where to start.
