Levy wore around his neck, a clinical technician who had worked with him for two years took it one day early last year. What she saw when she got home and plugged the device into her computer set off an investigation that shook thousands of women across the region and led the world-renowned hospital to pay $190 million to settle a class-action lawsuit. After she notified Hopkins officials, who viewed the files and confronted Levy, they did not contact city police for a few days.

My name is Luther Eaton, and I am a life-long resident of Baltimore City. I've been working in the storeroom for Hudson News at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport since 1995. After seven months of failed contract negotiations with our employer, my co-workers and I recently began planning for a one-day strike for May 22. It's been almost 20 years since I started working at the airport, and back then BWI was a completely different place. It hadn't yet seen the millions of dollars in renovations that have made it into a facility that is a source of pride for our elected officials.

After almost three months of investigation, the Maryland Transportation Authority Police said yesterday that a Maryland Port Administration maintenance supervisor who died under suspicious circumstances was fatally injured in an accidental fall. The state medical examiner's office said the determination of the cause of death of Robert L. Benway Jr., 45, was delayed because two co-workers who were with him at the time of the June 26 incident initially gave a false account. Benway died of his injuries July 1. The medical examiner determined that the co-workers' revised explanation was consistent with the 21-year state employee's injuries.

Women who work for the federal government, on the whole, make less than their male co-workers - just as in the private sector. But among the federal workers , a new study shows, that earnings gap is narrowing. Between 1992 and 2012, according to the Office of Personnel Management, the difference between earnings for men and women shrank from 30 percent to 13 percent. On orders from President Barack Obama, the Office of Personnel Management reviewed salary data from 1992, 2002 and 2012 and looked at ways to reduce the gap. The study, "Governmentwide Strategy on Advancing Pay Equality in the Federal Government," was released this month.

With the general election just weeks away, political discussions naturally come up in offices, on campuses and at job sites throughout the Baltimore area.
