Earlier this month, The Baltimore Sun published an important story describing the expansion of Alternative Response (AR) across Maryland (" A new tactic to halt child abuse in Maryland ," July 5). The new system assigns child abuse and neglect cases to one of two tiered tracks based upon whether they are deemed low or high risk. High risk cases are formally investigated, low risk ones are not. While Maryland's Department of Human Resources, certain advocates, and a clot of consultants and evaluators celebrate the move to what they see as an evolution in the state's response to child abuse, they are missing - or worse, disregarding - simple documented truths that should shake any reasonable person's confidence.

Morgan State University will serve as a research partner on a $129 million federal grant awarded to Pennsylvania State University to improve energy efficiency in commercial, public and residential buildings around the country. President Barack Obama promoted the initiative in an appearance at Penn State on Thursday, saying the research could help businesses save as much as $40 billion a year in utility costs. "Making our buildings more energy efficient is one of the fastest, easiest and cheapest ways to save money, combat pollution and create jobs right here in the United States of America," Obama said.

Disease is an unrelenting foe. Our nation's commitment to preventing disease and improving health should be equally unrelenting. However, the road to medical discoveries is long. Just as today's discoveries are made using yesterday's investments in medical research, tomorrow's advances depend on the investments we make today. Dr. Angela Brodie, a professor of pharmacology and experimental therapeutics at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, has won numerous awards for her discovery of the effectiveness of aromatase inhibitors as a first-line treatment for breast cancer.

IT OUGHT to be embarrassing, but few teachers understand the science of reading, and fewer still have any regular contact with those who conduct reading research. Tom Bowmann set out to change that. Last week, the city school system's director of reading brought together Baltimore's elementary school reading coaches together and scientists from the National Institutes of Health, who know reading the way a podiatrist knows feet. The meeting at The Forum in Northwest Baltimore was to discuss findings of the National Reading Panel, a group of experts that spent a couple of years examining a third of a century's worth of reading research, much of it conducted by scientists for the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development.
