Still more evidence that sex with many partners can have lethal consequences: Recent medical studies have linked another dangerous virus - passed silently between partners - to a disease that can kill. Several strains of human papilloma virus (HPV) have been identified as a cause of women's cancers of the cervix, vagina and vulva and as a possible cause of cancer of the penis in men and anal cancer in gay men, researchers say. The link to cervical cancer is strongest: HPV infection is found in about 90 percent of patients who develop precancerous cervical changes, according to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

The new Peugeot 505 Turbo S seems to have everything you could want in a luxury touring sedan. It is distinctive, well-built, comfortable, fast - and reasonably priced. With a current $3,000 discount knocking its base price down to $21,615, this well-equipped European road car has to be one of the premier buys in the low end of the luxury market. Unfortunately, its essentially satisfying nature is negated to a degree by several design glitches. None of them is terribly significant in itself, but the problems have a cumulatively annoying effect on someone like myself, who expects every detail to be thought out on a car of this caliber and cost.

Q: I'm a 21-year-old female with human papillomavirus. My doctor doesn't seem to know much about this and indicates there are over 50 different types of the virus. What should I know, and what should my partner know, if anything? A: Actually, there are 46 types of human papillomavirus, a common virus infection that causes warts. Ordinarily, these warts - which may appear on any skin surface - are harmless nuisances. However, types 16, 18, 31 and 33 associated with venereal warts in both men and women.

Question : I remember when Magic Johnson was diagnosed with HIV in the early 1990s. I thought it was his death sentence. Two decades later, he is healthy and the virus is completely under control with the medication he takes. Have we reached a point where people living with HIV can have normal life expectancies? Answer: Potentially, yes. We've come a long way since 1983, when the HIV virus was first identified. In 1986, AZT (Zidovudine) became the first drug available to treat HIV. Unfortunately, it wasn't effective enough in combating the AIDS virus.

Question: I had an EKG done in 2009 that said I had possible left atrial enlargement. Another EKG done at a different hospital in the same month said I had left atrial abnormality. I saw a cardiologist who did an echocardiogram of my heart and said I did not have left atrial enlargement. I'm completely puzzled! Can you help? Answer: An EKG uses the electrical activity of the heart to look for such things as the heart's rate, rhythm, signs of impaired electrical conduction, prior heart attacks, current injury to heart muscle, and possible enlargement of one or more chambers.

DEAR ABBY : My boyfriend, "Brady," broke up with me in November. Five weeks later he became engaged to someone else. I found out after that I have genital warts. My yearly exams never showed any problems before, so I know I got them from Brady. I'm getting treatment now, but I'll be contagious for the rest of my life. I have been unable to tell Brady about this because he won't respond to my attempts to contact him. I'm now trying to decide if I should tell his fiancee. I know he wants children, and this disease can have some serious repercussions if she gets pregnant.

Emma Thompson reprises her role in "Nanny McPhee Returns" as the tough-love British domestic with the magic walking stick. McPhee bangs her polished stick on the ground, shock waves shoot forth and a great noise is heard, but that's not the magic part. The magic is that when the noise is heard, all unruly children in the vicinity begin to behave, immediately. It's a fantasy that appeals mainly to adults, whom I suspect are the reason the original was an unexpected hit. We found a hero in Nanny McPhee, the dour disciplinarian who brings children smartly to heel.

At 46 years old, she had two teenage children and had spent most of her life with the same man. A secretary who had never reveled in the singles scene, she had had only one other sexual partner in her life. So she was stunned when told she had a sexually transmitted disease - from a virus that many experts believe promotes cancer. Cancer? No one had ever told her about HPV, the human papilloma virus - a sexually transmitted virus that has passed so often between men and women that experts believe one of 10 Americans is carrying it. Though often benign and without consequences, the virus is widely believed to instigate cancerous cell changes in some people.

IT IS THE curse of superstardom, of living on Olympus and occasionally taking a walk down the hill and not the other way around. We love it when a guy comes out of nowhere to momentarily wow the world, but the god who has been around forever and ever and kept slipping on the rocks on the summit, well, we see warts where they are and imagine them sometimes where they are not.

With a mix of jokes and inspirational quotes, Cory Booker was awing a crowd of hundreds with his signature charm and cross-cultural appeal. Only Booker was not in New Jersey, where he is mayor of Newark and running for U.S. Senate. That night, Sept. 16, he was in Upstate New York, speaking to the Jewish Federation of Greater Buffalo. Booker was in the midst of a nine-day stretch in which he disappeared from the campaign trail while his tenacious Republican opponent, Steve Lonegan, battered the Democrat's record at home.

ATLANTA - Anybody who thinks Monday night was a reason to panic hasn't been paying attention. In fact, if you are somebody who thinks Opening Night has some utility as a tea leaf for the rest of the season - which, almost without exception, it does not - the positives may have outweighed the negatives. The second baseman with the creaky knees looked as strong as he did in his prime, knocking a 400-foot home run over the wall in dead center, taking an extra base on an RBI single, and stretching a double into a triple.

Dramatically different drugs with similar names can be a dangerous problem, as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration alerted the public Wednesday regarding a wart-removing preparation that was confused with eyedrops. The FDA said it received one report of serious injury when a pharmacist mistakenly gave an eye surgery patient Durasal, the salicylic acid-containing wart remover, instead of the prescribed Durezol eye drops. Durezol is approved for treatment of inflammation and pain associated with ocular surgery.

WE ARE Red Sox Nation now. We count our consecutive sellouts, bid up the prices for the most modest seats in the place, analyze, dissect and distress over a team that somehow, despite numerous cracks in its armor, entered their game against the Dodgers with the best record in the major leagues, and finished the night with a four-game lead over its nearest pursuer. Somehow, that is the stuff that gets buried, buried underneath the anxiety of an uncertain future. Chase Utley playing his fourth day in a row?

WHEN Tony Kornheiser worked "Monday Night Football" with Mike Tirico and Ron Jaworski, it was so cold in the booth the mountains on the Coors labels turned blue instantly. It's all there in the new, 745-page doorstop of a book about ESPN, patched together by James Andrew Miller and Tom Shales. The title is "Those Guys Have All the Fun: Inside the World of ESPN" and I'm baffled, trying to figure out which guys have any of the fun. In the book, the guys come across, in their own words, as whiners, egotists, chauvinistic pigs, lugging petty grievances around like so many tattered blankees.
