 CHANTILLY, Va. (AP) - Hiding a weapon inside a walking cane - it's one of the oldest tricks in the James Bond playbook, and it's apparently more common than you think.
 
     Screeners at Dulles International Airport stopped a woman Monday after an X-ray of a cane she was carrying revealed a concealed sword.
 
     The Transportation Security Administration said the woman had no idea that her walking stick was also a weapon.
 
     TSA spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein says it's not uncommon for people to unwittingly carry canes that conceal weapons. The agency sent out an advisory Wednesday suggesting passengers with canes try to unscrew the top before heading out to the airport, just in case.
 
     In Monday's incident, the woman was allowed to board her flight - without the cane - and did not face charges.

 NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Tidewater Community College has announced a pilot program that will allow some students to earn an associate degree in business administration without buying any textbooks.
 
     College officials and industry leaders said Thursday that the initiative is the first of its kind for an accredited institution in this country. Colleges are increasingly using free materials online, but this will be the first degree program that will allow students to rely on them completely.
 
     Tidewater Vice President Daniel DeMarte says the goal is to save students money. He says if the pilot program goes well, more courses may be offered without textbooks.
 
     The Virginian-Pilot reports (http://bit.ly/ZLX0FB) that business administration students will be given the choice of using textbooks or the online materials. The latter could cut their education expenses by a third.

     ROME (AP) - After raising eyebrows by going to North Korea, former U.S. basketball star Dennis Rodman is continuing his bizarre global tour by visiting Rome - purportedly to help Ghanaian Cardinal Peter Turkson become the first black pope.
 
     But Rodman didn't seem too sure who he was supposed to be promoting when asked about it Wednesday. "From Africa right?" Rodman asked, wearing a hat and T-shirt promoting the Irish betting firm that organized his trip.
 
     Rodman said he was sure the next pope would be black and that he would like to meet him in Africa on his self-styled mission to promote world peace.
 
     Even Rodman's plans to enter St. Peter's Square in a custom-built "pope-mobile" were uncertain Wednesday: The vehicle had been delayed by snow in northern Italy.

  HAVANA (AP) - Tobacco: It's what's for dinner.
 
     A team of Croatian chefs whipped up a pungent meal Thursday, infusing the flavor of the tobacco leaf synonymous with Cuba into baked stone bass filets, bread and butter, a rich demi-glace sauce, even ice cream.
 
     The result was a tangy heat that one taster likened to ancho chili powder, and a powerful finish with all the nicotine kick of a chubby Montecristo cigar.
 
     "Wow, buzz city!" said Gary Heathcott, a public relations worker from Little Rock, Arkansas, who also writes for Smoke magazine. "The first buzz I ever received from biting into fish."
 
     Grgur Baksic, owner and executive chef of the Gastronomadi dinner club in Zagreb, led the demonstration before a standing-room-only crowd of aficionados at a Havana convention center as part of Cuba's 15th annual Cigar Festival.
 
     It's a six-day bash that brings together hundreds of cigar sophisticates from around the world, and culminates Saturday night with a gala and auction of humidors worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
 
     A dozen cameras following their every move, Baksic and two other chefs carefully wrapped the bass filets in tobacco and banana leaves, with a sprinkling of garlic and honey to draw out the smoky flavor.
 
     As the mild white fish baked for about a half hour, they demonstrated how stirring tobacco sauces into butter can create a sharp spread for bread and crackers, and used a torch to dry out liquid-infused tobacco salt that can be employed in just about any dish.
 
     "It's like how you can put chili on a sweet or a sour, you can put honey on a fish and on a fruit and on a meat," Baksic said. "Something that is good is always good. You cannot make a mistake."
 
     Baksic said Thursday's demonstration was the result of two years of trial and error. He said they unsuccessfully tried American, European and African tobacco varieties before settling on Cuban tobacco, which he called the finest in the world. The chefs warned tasters not to eat the leaves themselves, which would be hard on the stomach.
 
     Why tobacco?
 
     "Why rosemary? Why chili? It's about variety," Baksic said. "We are a little bit crazy. Our company are gastro-explorers, so we are always looking for what ... is not normal for other people."
 
     Some at the demonstration found the ice cream overwhelming. What started out as a smooth, milky sweetness soon set throats on fire.
 
     "I think they (nonsmokers) might find it a bit strong, and also they might actually get high," said James Suckling, an American food, wine and cigar critic living in Hong Kong. "So probably in small doses they might find it amusing."
 
     Suckling, like other cigar aficionados sitting on a 16-member tasting panel, gave the meal good reviews, however.
 
     "At first I didn't really get much flavor and I thought it wasn't up to much," he said. "But then I started tasting the fish ... and it has a very spicy, almost intense black-pepper taste. And then you get the nicotine and it's like you've been chewing tobacco."
 
     Heathcott put it more succinctly: "It grabs you by the throat."

 COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - The latest craze to sweep the Internet is bringing college students the wrong kind of attention - from the Federal Aviation Administration. 
 
     During a flight from Colorado Springs to San Diego, a group of students started the Harlem Shake, a dance to a song of the same name.
 
     In the suddenly popular YouTube videos, one person starts dancing, then the video cuts to a large group of people dancing, many in costume.
 
     Matt Zelin, a sophomore, told the Colorado College newspaper, The Catalyst (http://bit.ly/13qgjK2 ), he asked a flight attendant for permission beforehand.
 
     FAA spokesman Allen Kenitzer said Thursday they're looking at what phase the flight was in during the dance in the aisles.
 
     Frontier Airlines says the seatbelt sign was off and safety measures were followed.
