Harford County Councilman Mark S. Decker was convicted of battery yesterday -- but acquitted of a sex charge -- in a case stemming from physical contact with a female custodian in a courthouse hallway last year.Judge John Grason Turnbull II, who heard the case that was moved to Baltimore County Circuit Court, cited conflicting testimony in finding Mr. Decker, 35, not guilty of a fourth-degree sex offense. The custodian alleged that he had touched her breast."I'm not Solomon, I can't look into a crystal ball," Judge Turnbull said of the differing accounts.

Baltimore's spending panel is asked to approve a $40,000 settlement on charges that city officers falsely arrested a man and committed assault and battery against him at his Glen Oaks apartment. Alex Dickson, the plaintiff in the case, received significant injuries to his teeth, nose and ribs after three officers came to his apartment on Aug. 13, 2010 with his girlfriend under the terms of a protective order so she could retrieve some personal items. When the group arrived, Dickson used his body to block Officer James Wilder from crossing the threshold when Wilder grabbed Dickson and placed him under arrest, according to the settlement memo presented to the Board of Estimates.

My clock is not working right. I've had my PC for seven months, and the time in the lower right corner of the desktop has been perfect, even telling me it switched to daylight-saving time. Then this week, it started running slowly, losing over 30 minutes in a day. Any suggestions (other than resetting the clock every time I boot up)?The symptoms you describe fit a failure of the CMOS (complementary metal-oxide semiconductor) battery that your computer uses to keep track of time when you turn the power off. Unless you know your way around the inside of your computer, I would recommend taking it to a shop for battery replacement.

Countless famous footsteps have crossed the White House's entrance hall, but on Tuesday, some of the country's top science and technology dignitaries had to dodge a hovercraft made of foam and a paper bowl whizzing across the shiny pink-and-white marble. It was built by a group of five students at Patterson High School, selected among 30 research ventures for the fourth annual White House science fair. They won a place at the event by merit of a competition they won last fall, putting them in a room with President Barack Obama and with leaders of NASA, the National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health, who visited with the students and asked questions.

In the midst of President Jimmy Carter's economic doldrums in 1979, he sought to restart the nation's engines with a speech in which he essentially accused the American people of losing confidence. Although he never used the word, it was widely called his "malaise" speech, and he caught public hell for it, getting swamped the next year in his bid for reelection. President Barack Obama, having already gained another term despite a stalled economy in his first, is now embarked on a series of confidence-building speeches of his own. He is blaming not the people but "Washington," or at least the Republican majority in the House here, for the current economic doldrums that have stymied his own change-Washington agenda.
