Remember the hamburger? I'm talking a plain old hamburger, the kind that says nothing about its local sourcing, its prime ingredients or its house-made toppings. This is not the kind of hamburger that could headline its own boutique or draw the attention of food and travel shows. And not a fast-food fantasy burger either but just a hamburger. Think of it as a baseline hamburger. I found such a hamburger, right across the street from the Baltimore Sun offices, at Kim's Deli Express , which is kind of like the de facto staff lunchroom.

One of the marvels of the Internet to date is that it's largely been a level playing field where there is equal access to all (at least those not blocked by oppressive governments), an arrangement that has not only encouraged innovation and investment but greatly benefited ordinary consumers. U.S. officials keep claiming to support so-called "net neutrality," but interpretations of what that means seem to vary widely. At least that explains how last week the Federal Communications Commission could issue rules that reportedly uphold net neutrality but also raise the possibility of pay-for-preference treatment.

MINNEAPOLIS -- With seven minutes to go in the NCAA title game last night, Duke was leading by three. With two minutes to go, Duke was leading by 12.The intervening five minutes were all about the crushing of the Michigan dream and the stepping out of Duke's superb 6-8 sophomore, Grant Hill.By nature, Hill is as retiring as his skills are regal. There was no place to retire to last night, not after 18 points, 8-for-14 shooting, a game-high 10 boards, five assists, three steals and a couple of blocks.

Sloane Stephens, the No. 2 seed in the Citi Open and the 15th-ranked player in the world, dropped her first-round match to No. 88 Olga Puchkova, 7-5, 6-3, at William H.G. FitzGerald Tennis Center. The 20-year-old lumbered stiffly around the baseline with her head down between points, body language that indicated she was searching for the game that helped her beat Serena Williams in this year's Australian Open. "I just didn't play that well, wasn't feeling the ball great," Stephens said.

Included on a recent preseason Winston Cup media tour of team garages in North Carolina was NASCAR's new Research and Development facility in Concord. Locked in a small room inside that facility are a number of large parts for cars. "Those parts are used as a standard for parts that show up at the racetracks," said Gary Nelson, NASCAR's managing director of competition. "We're able to bench-mark what we see at the track to originals." A very good tool, wouldn't you say, to be able to go back to the original to measure how close something is after being modified or, perhaps, damaged at the racetrack?

Scientists say Earth's climate has warmed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit in the last century. But Ken Miller of Glen Burnie asks, "What baseline for calibration was used then and now? I am sure they are different. How can we believe this is right?" Climatologist Robert Henson says three major groups here and abroad track temperatures in different ways, using the longest, most reliable data sets each can find. They differ on what the global temperature is, but they agree closely on the increase.

In a game that included problems with the clock operation and arguing over the National Rookie League rules, Frank Mcqueen's baseline jumper gave the Baltimore Blaze a 99-96 victory over the Washington Justice last night at Towson Center. Mcqueen's shot came with what appeared to be 1.5 seconds remaining. However, the officials added three seconds on the clock, giving the Justice one more chance. Washington turned the ball over and the Blaze wrapped up the game with a free throw. Mcqueen led the Blaze (3-1)

The second Grand Prix of Baltimore sold 30,000 fewer tickets and generated $5 million less for the local economy than the first race. But a economic impact report completed last week and released publicly Thursday has nevertheless emboldened J.P. Grant, a partner in Race On LLC. “We pulled that off in 100 days, so it really is the floor of what we can do,” Grant said. “We had a 60-page playbook and could only get through the first three pages. There's much more we'll do this year.” Grant has already started sharing the report with local business leaders, generating what he said was a positive response.

Amid growing concerns about concussions, more student athletes are having their brain function tested prior to injury in a procedure called baseline testing that is becoming increasingly mainstream. Baseline tests can be used for comparison to neurological exams after an athlete suffers a concussion to help choose the best treatment. The tests, on the market for a few years, are used mostly by school athletic programs and collegiate and professional teams. This summer, HeadFirst began offering the test to patients at concussion centers in Gambrills and Annapolis.

The National Weather Service's new 30-year temperature and precipitation averages, which are used by farmers, utilities and meteorologists, show a warmer, drier and snowier Baltimore. Compared with the previous data, the updated numbers show that: • The city's average annual temperature has increased by 0.5 degree Fahrenheit. • Annual precipitation has dropped by 0.06 inch. • Average annual snowfall has jumped by 2 inches, to 20 inches per year. Climate scientists say the warmer trend and even the snow data are consistent with a warming planet.

The electricity bill passed by the General Assembly last week orders a tall study agenda for the rest of the year: whether wholesale purchases can be improved; the effect of expensive juice on low-income customers; if ratepayers can recover $528 million in "stranded costs" paid to Constellation Energy, and much more. But there is at least one more change Maryland policymakers should seriously consider: chopping electricity prices into brackets so that frugal users pay a lower per-kilowatt price than energy hogs with McMansions, swimming pools and summer-long air conditioning.
