Anyone who's watched the final leg of the Preakness recognizes that both horses and the people who ride them are impressive athletes. But horse and rider don't have to be Triple Crown contenders to get a good workout - even an introductory lesson works muscles all over the body. As a bonus, learning to ride exercises the mind, too. At Graham Equestrian Center (GEC), a nonprofit horse boarding and instruction facility in Gunpowder State Park, an hourlong private lesson began inside a small office, where professional horse trainer Jim McDonald instructed me on the key tenets of horsemanship and riding - from keeping a soft, open gaze to staying grounded through the horse - as I perched atop “Missy,” a mechanical horse McDonald uses to teach students.

At age 23, Malarie Burgess couldn't fit into restaurant booths, she had to buy clothes online, and she endured stares and comments from strangers, particularly children. The year was 2010, and she weighed 350 pounds. "I had kind of fooled myself into thinking I was OK," recalled Burgess, who grew up in Westminster. But then a family friend sat her down and urged her to change. "She said she was worried about my health," Burgess said of the friend. "Initially, I was very offended.

Legislation introduced Monday in the City Council would require every Baltimore police officer to wear a body camera within a year. Though the proposal leaves many questions unanswered regarding how evidence from the devices could be used, who would have access to it and, not insignificantly, how the new equipment would be paid for, we think on balance that the benefits of the technology far outweigh the costs both in terms of improving police-community relations...

Two City Councilmen plan to submit legislation today requiring every police officer in Baltimore to wear a body camera that records audio and video as the officers go about their jobs. Warren Branch, chairman of the council's public safety committee, and Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young's proposal would permit the Baltimore Police Department to phase-in use of the body cameras during the first year after the bill, if approved, becomes law. The bill comes amid a series of high-profile allegations of police misconduct in Baltimore and around the country.

Two influential City Council members introduced legislation Monday that would require every Baltimore police officer to wear a body camera within a year - a move they argue would cut down on police brutality in the aftermath of several high-profile misconduct allegations. Council President Bernard C. "Jack" Young and Councilman Warren Branch, chairman of the panel's public safety committee, cited questions surrounding the in-custody death last year of Tyrone West and a recent video showing an officer repeatedly punching a suspect, among other cases, as reasons for the proposed law. It would require all of Baltimore's nearly 3,000 sworn police officers to wear a device constantly recording the audio and video of their interactions with the public.

ESPN knows that sex sells, and it takes advantage of that adage each summer with its "Body" issue. This video will give you a taste of the 2013 edition. The pages feature hard-bodied athletes such as 49erws quartback Colin Kaepernick, Washington Wizards guard John Wall and volleyball star Kerri Waslh Jennings in skimpy outfits, or none at all -- really, not much different from the way many athletes perform. But this is a more Vanity Fair-like treatment, with the bodies glistening with dew, rather than sweat.
