I get it. A handful of reactionary billionaires and former Republican government officials of dubious ethical repute don't like a law, so they decide to shut down the government until that law (passed by both houses of Congress, signed by the president of the United States and upheld by the Supreme Court) is gutted or rescinded. They enlist the enthusiastic support of a handful of elected politicians, most from underpopulated areas of the United States, to help them in this action.

When the No. 1 McDonogh boys soccer team is playing rival St. Paul's and in desperate need of a goal, it knows who to turn to: junior defender Michael DeShields. With the game scoreless in the final minutes of the second overtime on Wednesday, DeShields made his way in front of the Crusaders' goal to find a corner kick sent in by Tunde Akinlosotu. DeShields got a little higher than No. 5 St. Paul's goalie Conor Brown, heading home the game-winner with 3:54 left for a 1-0 win. Sound familiar?

The crisis in Syria has escalated to a point where the Obama administration is at a yield sign. It does not know whether to stop and let the crisis burn itself out, or proceed with consequences that could take an already unstable region over the brink ( "The decisive moment," Sept. 9). With Congress debating on a yes or no verdict to proceed with military action, Russia is already taunting the United States with threats to aid Syria if that country is attacked. What will this do?

When the Toronto Blue Jays overtook the New York Yankees for second place earlier this week and then won their game Wednesday night, the Blue Jays guaranteed that the Orioles couldn't capture the American League East crown until Monday at the earliest. That ruined a delicious scenario for the Orioles this weekend, potentially sweeping the Yankees at Camden Yards to clinch their first division title in 17 years. You would have needed a jumbo, battery-charged broom for that one. As it stands, the most the Orioles can do this weekend is eliminate the Yankees from the divisional race, which, for an organization that has been in the deep shadows of the Bronx Bombers for decades, is a solid consolation prize.

When people talk about "green architecture," they're usually referring to buildings that are designed to be environmentally sensitive and energy efficient. But when architect Walter Schamu talks about his latest "green" project, he can't avoid the references to dollar bills as well as energy savings. Schamu and his partners at Schamu Machowski Greco, Tony Machowski and Victor Greco, recently acquired the old Brink's Inc. armored car company terminal in downtown Baltimore for $700,000 and plan to convert it by spring to headquarters for their 24-year-old design firm.

TURIN, Italy -- In a downtown Salt Lake City bar four years ago, all eyes were on the TV, where a 35-year-old housewife from Scotland faced a seemingly impossible task: deliver a 42-pound stone 93 feet with pinpoint precision to break a tie and capture the Olympic gold in women's curling. When Rhona Martin coolly tapped the Swiss stone aside to give Great Britain the win over Switzerland, the Port 'O Call erupted. Men in football-team sweat shirts hooted and high-fived each other as if they were watching an AFC playoff game.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Throughout its improbable postseason run, the Maryland baseball team has faced teams that have had the advantage of simply having played in big games before. To level the scales a bit Saturday, it decided to impose its own kind of game on Virginia. The upstart Terps strung together hits early in the game and held off several late rallies en route to a tense, 5-4 win in the first game of their best-of-three NCAA super regional. “That's a typical game that we've been playing lately,” coach John Szefc said.

Maryland's national women's lacrosse semifinal with Northwestern on Friday pits two of the top draw control experts. Terps sophomore Taylor Cummings will square off against the Division I career leader, Alyssa Leonard, who has 424 draw controls over her four years. Cummings has 210 for her career. Whichever team wins the draw will control the pace of Friday night's game, which is critical to moving on to Sunday's national championship. The No. 1-seeded Terps , who average 14.82 goals per game, like to attack quickly, while Northwestern, averaging 11.05 goals, prefers a slower-tempo, settled approach.

“PBS NewsHour,” once one of the nation's most influential broadcasts, is on the brink of marginalization - if not extinction. And for those of us who believe TV needs at least one noncommercial, nightly, national newscast in these increasingly corporate times, that's a cause for concern. The “NewsHour” has lost 48 percent of its audience in the past eight years, going from an average audience of 2.5 million viewers a night in 2005 to 1.3 million in fiscal year 2013 (PBS shows are measured in fiscal years)

Some people read military history for the technical details--why General X failed to match Hanibal's pincer movement at Cannae. Others, like me, dip into it to see how individuals and societies respond to circumstances of immense stress. Victor Davis Hanson explores these larger dimensions of wars in The Savior Generals (Bloomsbury Press, 305 pages, $28). He takes five commanders from classical antiquity to today to explore how they went into losing wars and salvaged the situation.

Sure, Navy has outscored Army by an average of 31 points during its current, four-game winning streak over the Black Knights. But if you think the Midshipmen are approaching the 107th meeting with Army on Dec. 2 with any hint of casual preparation, listen to senior inside linebacker and co-captain Rob Caldwell. "I don't think we need to reach back for [added motivation]," said Caldwell, who leads the Mids with 95 tackles and three forced fumbles. "From Day One when you show up here, it's `Go Navy.

The escalating exchange of rocket barrages and airstrikes between Israel and the Hamas militants who control the Gaza Strip threatens to erupt into an all-out ground war that destabilizes the entire region. The U.S. and its European allies, along with Egypt, Turkey and the United Nations, must do everything possible to nudge the belligerents back from the edge through diplomatic means before events spin completely out of control. No nation can allow its citizens to be attacked and killed with impunity by a foreign power that fires missiles indiscriminately across its borders at major towns and cities.
